    Wonderful, flexible, & thoughtful officiant

    Shari was a wonderful support through the process of our micro-wedding that we planned and pulled together in a very short time period. Shari provided flexibility as we sorted through a date and location, as well as guided us through the marriage licence/certificate process in Ontario. We were very happy with the "paperwork only" marriage service Shari provided, which was simple yet kind and thoughtful.

    Shari Marries's reply:

    It was my pleasure. You two and your guests were just wonderful and I was so happy I was able to be there.
    All the best in the many years too come!

    Beautiful Ceremony thanks to Shari

    We can't begin to express how happy we were to have Shari as our officiant. She was great about scheduling meetings with us leading up to the wedding including a walk-through of the whole ceremony. She was always professional and friendly. Her ceremony was beautifully written and delivered. Many of our guests appreciated how heartfelt and touching the ceremony was. We would absolutely recommend Shari to anyone getting married!

    Shari Marries's reply:

    Thanks for this great review, it's much appreciated. Your ceremony was wonderful as were the two of you.
    All the best in the many years ahead!

    Beautiful experience with Shari

    We absolutely loved having Shari as our wedding officiant. She was so sweet and accommodating and was very flexible with changing our ceremony date (which we had to change due to bad weather). On top of being so nice and professional, Shari has the most amazing energy! We loved having her as our officiant on our special day! She is so friendly, warm and sweet and we absolutely loved having her at our marriage ceremony!

    Shari Marries's reply:

    Hi Tannaz,
    I loved officiating your backyard wedding! Your family was just so lovely and the two of your were radiant on your special day.
    All the best,
    Shari

    Shari was amazing!

    Shari made the process so easy for us. Due to COVID 19 we had to reschedule a couple of times, and she was very flexible and responsive all the time. We loved the ceremony she had prepared, and she walked us completely through the process, both before the day and on the day. She literally took care of everything, we couldn't have asked for more.

    Shari Marries's reply:

    Kendra and Sean I was so happy to officiate your special day. You two are beautiful souls and a pleasure to work with. You were surrounded by so much love that day and I was honoured to be there.

    All the best,
    Shari

    Shari was fabulous!

    Shari was amazing to work with! When covid hit and we had to reschedule our wedding, Shari was so accommodating, trying work with our new date and location as well as our availability for the walk through. She completely put us at ease, guided us through the ceremony, and made the ceremony so memorable for us. We totally recommend Shari!

    Shari Marries's reply:

    Thank you so much! Officiating your beautiful wedding was one of the highlights of my summer. Best of everything to the two of you!!
    Shari

    Incredible experience

    We wrote a pretty long and different ceremony. Shari was so flexible and did a wonderful job with it. We got married a far distance away and Shari was happy to make the trek for us. She was everything we hoped for and more.

    Shari Marries's reply:

    Thanks for the lovely review Alex! The pleasure was all mine. You two were well worth the drive to cottage country!
    All my love,
    Shari

    Customized ceremony with flawless delivery

    We met with Shari about a year ago. She was warm and we talked for about an hour. We felt immediately connected.

    Once we hired her, my wife and I decided to write a customized ceremony. Shari has a standard template she uses, but you can customize it as much as you want....as long as it stays legal. Well my wife and I took her up on this. We changed every sentance. We loved the template, but had a very particular vision. And Shari was sooo enthusiastic about our ceremony. She put in all the extra work to learn our ceremony and give flawless delivery.

    Many people complimented our ceremony and our officiant! She was truly phenominal

    Shari Marries's reply:

    Christy and Natalie, Thanks so much for choosing me as your officiant. You are right! I was excited about your ceremony and your additions were so personal and beautiful. The two of you are a lovely couple and I know you will have the best life together. Perfectly matched!

    All my love,
    Shari
