    Marilyn is fantastic!

    To say that working with Marilyn was wonderful wouldn't be enough! She was absolutely wonderful to work with on our wedding ceremony. Anytime we had questions, she answered our emails in a timely manner. She offered advice when we needed it.

    Marilyn has the most friendly, warm demeanor! Her writing is beautiful, she told our story perfectly. We received at least a dozen compliments on how special and unique our ceremony was.

    So many big hugs and special thanks Marilyn!!

    Very professional and creative!

    It was a pleasure to have Marilyn officiate at my wedding. Everything was discussed with me before hand and she made alterations to make sure everything was perfect for my day.

    Marilyn's creativeness in suggesting unique ways to tie the knot at a non religious ceremony were fun and really expressed who we are as a couple.

    Thank you,
    Crystal &Josh

    Unique ceremony!

    Marilyn made planning the ceremony a piece of cake! She took care of everything. We provided her what we wanted in the ceremony and what we did not want. It was different and unique. She captured our personalities and love story in the ceremony. Our guests love the fact the uniqueness of the ceremony. It is something they nevere experienced before. That is what we wanted! We both adid not want to capture our religion in the ceremony and she made sure to do that and focus on the important details we wanted to capture. She even went beyond to take care of some final details on the wedding day to reduce my stress. I was super anxious and a mess. She made sure everything went smoothly the music and the decor placement for the ceremony! We did spend more than we should.. But she did capture what we wanted. All in all, my husband and I will always remember our special day.

    Wonderful Personalized Ceremony

    Marilyn did an amazing job making our personalized ceremony. She took time to get to know us as a couple, and was more than willing to make any changes at our request.

    Absolutely beautiful ceremony

    Marilyn was fantastic! She truly captured every detail we wanted to include in the ceremony. She made sure every note was taken into account, and offered suggestions when we needed them. Our guests were delighted to witness such a personal ceremony. It was important to us to have a non religious ceremony that still felt intimate and personal- Marilyn surpassed all expectations! She was wonderful, and we are so happy we had Marilyn as part of our wedding!!!

    Highly Recommend!

    We are so happy that we went with Marilyn to officiate our intimate wedding! The ceremony was beautiful, and we are still receiving compliments from all of our guests. We wanted a ceremony that was tailored to us, and wasn't the traditional stuffy speech. Guests walked away touched, and learned small details about us that they hadn't previously known. Marilyn is very professional, warm and well spoken. We did go over our budget with her services, but we don't regret doing so! Marilyn is highly recommended for all of our families upcoming events! Thank you for being apart of our wedding!

    Woven Words Ceremonies's reply:

    Thank you Alicia! It was my honour and privilege to write your love story and create meaningful ceremony for you and Derek! I loved meeting you and co-creating the perfect rituals that made sense to you and your guests. Wishing you both all the best marriage has to offer!
