Probably the most heard comment on my wedding day was about Marlene. From the sound of her voice to timing and delivery to the actual message she gave-- everything was spot on and perfect. She works closely with you via phone and email to create a customized ceremony and caters to what is important to you as a couple. I cant recommend her enough. She did a great job and I am so happy we found her via wedding wire.

Marlene was the perfect officiant for our wedding. She married my aunt and uncle a few years back and it was absolutely beautiful. My husband and I aren't religious, so she made sure to have our ceremony fit our wants. The ceremony it self was short, straight, and to the point, which is exactly what we wanted. She threw in a few jokes which kept the mood light and fun. Everything about it was perfect for us. She is a beautiful person inside and out. We love you Marlene and thank you for helping make our day perfect!

Marlene was WONDERFUL to work with! She gave us sample vows to consider as well as providing a traditional or non-traditional spin to them. She took time to get to know us individually and as a couple. When I sent my own ideas to her she promptly and graciously incorporated them into a theme she thought we'd like. The end result was tears of love and joy at the service for having repeated to each other the perfect concepts, words and vows that expressed our philosophy of marriage, our love for each other and the beginning of a new chapter in our lives. Marlene was a dream to work with and I will always be grateful to her for having helped us make our spectacular day so very meaningful.

Marlene was professional, upbeat, friendly and very knowledgeable regarding wedding related paperwork. Fees for her services seemed very reasonable. She provided us with an excellent "template" of wedding vows that we were able to edit and customize to suit our personal tastes. She arrived exactly when she said she would and performed our ceremony beautifully. We are very happy with the service she provided, and would certainly recommend her to anyone needing an officiate in the central coast area.

Marlene took all stress out the our little wedding and filled that void with a calm, sweet, caring spirit. I absolutely loved our phone conversations, I knew immediately she was our perfect fit. We wanted our wedding to be short and sweet. Marlene e-mailed me a selection of vows (didn't want to write our own) I edited them down for our personal touch. Her delivery of the vows was wonderful. Just the right amount of serious and humor. I can honestly say, she is the BEST! Thank you Marlene for making our special day even more so. I do wish you could have stayed for a glass of wine though. ;)

We both feel so fortunate to have found the absolute perfect person to marry us-Marlene! From the minute we sat down and chatted, she put us at ease and offered her unconditional support of our wedding and marriage. She had thoughtful ideas for our special, unconventional ceremony (love the puzzle box!) but also completely welcomed our creative input. Marlene encouraged us to make our wedding day our own unique experience that reflected the true love we have been lucky enough to find in each other. She was warm, caring, open-minded, professional, organized and obviously loves what she does! The ceremony went so smoothly and beautifully, thanks to her expertise. We can't say enough positive things about her and hope she knows how grateful we are for her help in making our wedding the most wonderful day of our lives!

Marlene with A Central Coast Wedding was fantastic. She paid such attention to details and was able to write beautiful vows for us. She was in contact with us regularly to make sure she had what we wanted planned out properly. I would definitely highly recommend Marlene in particular and A Central Coast Wedding to everyone. I don't think that you could find a better officiant to perform your service. Due to Marlene's kind attention we had our dream come true.

My husband and I weren't sure of the type of ceremony that we wanted, but we knew we wanted it to be informal, yet spiritual, and not your cookie cutter ceremony. We met with Marlene and she had us complete a questionnaire to get to know us better. She provided us with ideas and options that we hadn't even considered...like a "wine box". (It's not what you think.) The end result was a lovely ceremony that was unique and special...and not too long or too short. Several of our guests afterwards commented on the ceremony and asked how we knew Marlene. They were truly touched by the ceremony, which is what we also wanted to achieve. I would highly recommend Marlene to anyone considering marriage. She is truly a special individual.

We found Marlene in the phone book - along with a few other people but she responded almost immediately, where others seemed uninterested or never responded. She seemed to take in our "story" and become a PART of it.

Our service was EXACTLY how we envisioned it to be....Fast, personal, and very well written/all-inclusive.

My new wife and I feel we've made a new friend, and will be following her. We hope to renew vows now and again, but most importantly, at the anniversary of our first year.

While we know that it's only OUR experience, we felt "special" to Marlene and, YES!!!!!! We recommend her offerings to any couple who want something personal and meaningful!

Hi,
Marlene provided us with more than we could even imagine. For month after the wedding we continued to have friends ask us if we had the words said at our ceremony typed up, because they too were so moved by the emotions that were created in response to what Marlene shared with us. Marlene helped make an ever so possible stressful situation be as smooth as possible with her calm but lighthearted personality. Having Marlene as our officiant was of of the best decisions of our whole wedding planning. We are so thankful that she was available to be able to assist us with making our day, the best day.
Thank you again Marlene for everything!!!

She always responded to emails and was available to answer questions. On our wedding day, she presented the custom ceremony beautifully. I highly recommend Marlene and know that you will be blessed to have her be a part of your once in a lifetime event.

She took the time to meet with us, go over our preferences and timely provided us with our ceremony. She was open to changes and new ideas. On the day of our wedding she was prompted, well prepared, professional but also had a great sense of humor. Our guests, family, friends and most importantly us, thought she was terrific!

Marlene is wonderful to work with! She is very helpful and knowledgable with the licensing and legal stuff! Our ceremony was outdoors, simple, romantic, and included the wine box ceremony. If you are looking for a non religious type drama free ceremony Marlene is your woman! We wrote our own vows and she was also very helpfull with that. She is very honest and kind, we loved having her as our officiant!

Marlene helped make our special day truly unique to us. She worked with us right up until the last minute to personalize the ceremony - she was always ready to make changes we requested, or suggest alternatives. She was always available by phone or email...but more than this Marlene seemed genuine - in both the warmth she exuded to us and our guests, and in her desire to help us make a memorable day all that it could be. We are so grateful for her help and guidance - the day would not have been the same without her! :x

Finding Marlene was the best thing that happened to Matt and I for our wedding. She helped make our vows so personal to us and did a fantastic job from planning to the day of the event.

Marlene took the time to find out what was important to us and offered many suggestions for a very personal ceremony. She was very responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. We received many compliments from our guests about her performance and even have a couple wanting to plan their upcoming wedding in the area just so that they could use her!

She made our marriage unforgettable and her impeccable personalized service is something any bride and groom would appreciate. Matt and I certainly did and cannot thank her enough.

Marlene provided a very personal and beautiful ceremony for my husband and I. We had personalized our vows with her via email. She was always available and she had responded very promptly to all the questions we had. During the ceremony, her words and sentiment put my husband and I at ease. Marlene put a lot of thought and feeling into our ceremony and our guests were very moved. We are a bit of a goofy couple, and Marlene played off of this a little too. We wanted the overall feeling to be personal, warm, and loving and could not be any happier. Thank you so much Marlene!

Marlene was wonderful! My fiance (now my wife) and I live in Washington State, but we wanted to get married in California so we contacted Marlene. She agreed to be our officiant and was very helpful as we prepared for the big day. We met with her on our drive down from Washington for some pre-wedding planning. Following a template that Marlene provided for us to use if we wanted to, we gave her our thoughts and ideas, and Marlene incorporated those into the ceremony. Our wedding was outside in Paso Robles, and Marlene was the perfect officiant for a perfect day!

If we could give Marlene one million stars, we would (but we're limited to only 5!)! She was simply amazing, and crafted the most beautiful ceremony that I have ever seen (I know I'm biased since it was my wedding, but many of our guests made the same remark). Our ceremony was the most important part of our wedding day. We had contacted and/or met with several officiants before we found Marlene - once we heard the warmth that emanated from her voice over the phone, we knew she was what we had been looking for. We had a conversation about the flow of our ceremony and the overall tone, and she simply nailed it. Our wedding guests couldn't stop talking about what a breathtaking ceremony she had created. She is exceptionally professional, warm, and genuine - she made my wedding day extraordinary.

Marlene was just amazing. My husband and I wanted a private wedding for just the two of us, full of meaning and emotion, and we got just that. She performed a handfasting ceremony and also a ring blessing with water from the ocean of the beach we were getting married at, and both of these small blessings fit flawlessly into our overall ceremony. She was helpful in finding a location that fit our needs, as well as assisting in finding a photographer, not to mention suggestions for what to do in town after the wedding! She was very flexible in fitting into our needs and schedules and also our requesting her last minute! She's wonderful, has a great sense of humor, and if you go with her, you'll be SO happy you did.

What can I say but "WONDERFUL". My husband and I were so glad we found Marlene. Being from out of town it was sort of daunting trying to find someone to officiate our wedding, but after we met with Marlene we knew she would do a great job....

Fast forward to a month before the wedding...Marlene worked with us to put together the perfect ceremony that would be meaningful to the both of us. After several exchanges over email we finally had the ceremony. Speaking of email, Marlene was terrific and always got back to us within a day.

Marlene was right on time for both the rehearsal and the ceremony of course. Let me just tell you, you could tell she was honored to be there officiating our wedding. My husband I were 100% pleased with the ceremony and many of our guests even commented on how much they liked her as well.

She even sent us an email the day after the wedding letting us know the marriage license had been mailed off! We will never forget our ceremony thanks to Marlene, and my husband's personal vows that caused many of our guests to shed tears!

We found Rev. Marlene Morris on the internet and immediately became excited. Within minutes we were speaking with her on the phone. A few hours later we were reviewing the text of her "standard" ceremony which brought us both to tears. When we met her in person a few days later to finalize our plans we immediately fell in love with her warmth, sensitivity, charm, and wisdom.

Rev. Marlene made us feel like we were the most special people in the world. She helped us manage our nerves before the ceremony, encouraged us to share our emotions during our exchange of vows in a way we didn't think was possible, and left us feeling loved and respected.

We highly recommend choosing Rev. Marlene Morris as the officiant for your ceremony!

I honestly don't think 5 is high enough. Reverend Marlene Morris met and exceeded my expectations and deserves a category of her own. That is how great our wedding was.

Making the decision to commit to another person for the rest of your life is no small thing. The person you choose to bless your union should recognize this and demonstrate their recognition in every aspect of the ceremony they perform. They should radiate love and warmth and be able to help you have the ceremony that *you* want.

If this is how you feel, then Reverend Marlene Morris is your only choice for a wedding officiant. We stumbled upon her listing in the directory on the Martha Stewart Wedding website. She was the first person we reviewed and we knew immediately that she was "the one" for us.

Although we were both nervous, Reverend Marlene was patient and kind, and we greatly benefited from her vast experience. She walked us through planning our ceremony effortlessly. She made us feel as if we were the two most important people in the world, something that turned out to be more important than we could have ever guessed.

When she showed us the ceremony she planned,it seemed as if she had peered into our hearts and written the perfect words to capture how we felt about ourselves, our marriage, and our future.

I have already recommended Reverend Marlene to other friends who are beginning to plan their own weddings. If you want the best, Reverend Marlene Morris is "the one" for you.

We met with Marlene and instantly knew she was the perfect person to marry us. She put us at ease, wanted to learn all about us and we in turn learned a lot about her. To know anything about her is to respect and like her immediately. She has an aura about her that is calming. She would even randomly send me emails as the wedding neared saying things like "Enjoy the chaos. Just breathe." She has no idea how much those brief emails helped me remember to keep the important things at the forefront.
Everyone walked away from our ceremony blown away. The love was palpable in the air. Marlene set a tone and kept it light and even added totally appropriate humor...when my dog decided to sit on my train...she made it feel like us. I'll never forget it. She made the day perfect.

I cannot recommend Marlene enough to anyone who is looking for the right person to marry them. When I contacted Marlene we spoke over the phone and after 5 minutes I knew I had found the right person to marry my wife and I. She provided us with sample vows, had helpful suggestions for our ceremony. She made our day completely unique to us. We consider Marlene part of our family now.
Thanks Marlene.

Marlene was fantastic! The perfect mix of professional and personal. We wanted a secular ceremony and she helped us create something very personal yet light hearted. During the ceremony she had a really nice presence and manner. Would highly recommend!

Marlene was wonderful. She helped us pick a great place overlooking the ocean in Cambria for our vows. We had a private ceremony and she made it so special. She has a cute sense of humor where it is appropriate, which made us feel very at ease. We had a fabulous time with Marlene. She is amazing!
She was great about emailing us the "ceremony" to keep as is, or change it if we wished. She was very easy to work with and very professional. I have no idea about value for the cost as she was the only person we contacted. I had met her at her previous church in Burbank, CA and when I found out she was in Cambria, I didn't want anyone else to marry us.

Marlene was the perfect choice from the start. She was flexible with us, which was such a stress reliever because we lived out-of-county. She personalized the ceremony and didn't make it too "mushy" and "drawn out". (two concerns of most guys I think :)
I can't wait to have her be a part of our special day in 10 years when we renew our vows!
