A Real Life Fairy Godmother
Mary came into our lives after our previous officiant had a scheduling conflict 2 weeks before the wedding. She swooped in by recommendation of a friend and immediately set our panic at ease with her warm spirit and grounded radiating confidence. Her approach to writing the ceremony was collaborative so we had ample back-and-forth to add in our specific spiritual traditions while also taking guidance from her experience as an officiant. On the day of our wedding Mary was a calm and joyful presence before and during the ceremony - even hearing the tone and cadence of her voice set our nerves at ease. If you are looking for a deeply spiritual woman who brings acceptance and wisdom to her work, Mary is the one.Sent on 28/08/2019

A Wonderful Ceremony by a Wonderful Officiant
We were truly blessed to have found Mary to officiant our wedding. She was nothing short of amazing. She is so kind and patient. We had an idea of how we wanted the ceremony to go and she ensured it was accommodated. We had her for our rehearsal and she prepared us for the day, which took a little bit of the nerve away. My now husband and I feel very grateful that we had Mary officiant our wedding.Sent on 18/07/2018

Mary did such a fantastic job officiating our wedding. She took the time to meet with us and answer questions whenever we needed before the wedding. She is an incredibly warm, welcoming, and sparkly person. Mary was the first and only officiant we met with, we knew immediately that she was the one we wanted. She helped guide us and created a ceremony that was personal and very fitting for us. We received so many compliments from guests about the ceremony, they really felt the love! We would highly recommend her services to others!

Mary is the best!!
We found Mary through our wedding venue who recommended her. She was absolutely amazing!! It is nerve wracking up there on the day of the wedding when everyone is looking at you while you say your vows, but Mary made us feel so comfortable and even added a little humor to the ceremony. It was exactly what we needed for the ceremony to feel seemless, authentic and genuine. Mary is calm and collected and it makes you trust that everything will go perfectly. And it did!Sent on 26/01/2018
Rev. Mary McCandless ~ Four Seasons Celebrations, Wedding Officiant's reply:Brooke, what a wonderful day it was! I'm so delighted that I was invited to be part of your celebration.
