    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.

    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!

    Maya, thank you so much! Your wedding was as memorable for me as it was for you and your guests. Simple, elegant, heartfelt, meaningful. All the things that you wanted it to be. You looked so incredibly beautiful, which only matched the setting and the harpist was a perfect addition. I have never experienced such an exchange of vows and I will carry the experience with me always. Much love to you both, M*

    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!

    Mary was an absolute delight and everything that we could have hoped for in an officiant! We really wanted to have a family member be a part of the officiating and Mary helped us to accomplish that. Our ceremony perfectly represented us as a couple and we received many compliments from our guests. We will be recommending Mary to anyone that requires an officiant!

    Mary was absolutely amazing! We planned our wedding in 13 days and Mary was extremely helpful and accommodating throughout the process. Even though we only had 13 days to plan everything we still wanted to write our own vows. Mary provided us with some readings and vow samples that really helped us to get the ball rolling.

    Mary has an exceptional ability to roll with the punches while maintaining a positive and calming energy. On the day of our wedding the weather set our ceremony back several hours. Mary was completely flexible with the time change and her relaxed attitude surrounding the change calmed us down as well.

    Mary's ceremony was beautifully written and her delivery was heartfelt and genuine. It was obvious to us that Mary puts a lot of love and care into her work. I could not think of a better person than Mary to have played this integral role in our day.

    A month or two following the wedding we received a hand written card from Mary along with my husbands hand written vows. I thought this was above and beyond and was very touched by her thoughtfulness.

    Would recommend Mary a thousand times over!

    Love,
    Erin & Allan

    You and your family are what love is all about. Your love and connection to each other and the children was so heartwarming. It was good reminder to focus on the important things on your wedding day. The beach was the perfect setting and the fireworks couldn't have been more perfectly timed. Still, I don't every think I'll forget when one of the boys ran up and announced he had seen a shark!
