After speaking with Marie on the phone the first time we decided she was the one! We had a unique situation and were getting legally married with a small group of family/friends. Marie was supportive the entire time. She personalized the ceremony for us and even recommended a few locations that would accommodate elderly family members.We needed to change the time of the ceremony due to our family and Marie was flexible with our changing schedule. The most memorable part of the experience was the ceremony she wrote for us. She made us laugh and really captured the spirit of our relationship. We are having a larger ceremony for the rest of our family and friends in the Caribbean and we're hoping she can make the journey to help us renew our vows!

Marie was exceptional in her professionalism. She actually wore a Go Pro Hero Helmet cam on her head during our ceremony! That's right, she video taped our ceremony with a head band HD cam! Even though it messed up her hair, She was terrific. That was only the beginning. It rained, it was windy. we had no idea where to get married. we ended up in a beautiful back yard of a local Mystic couple facing the Seaport, and totally winged it.

It was perfect, it was what we wanted, we didn't plan it. it was the most memorable day we could have imagined. We couldn't have done it without Marie. Thank you so much!

If you are reading these reviews, you have found the best JOP!

Words cannot express how thrilled we were that Marie was our officiant! From the initial contact, through the planning, the rehearsal, and the day of, Marie was thoughtfully and consistently involved. The amount of energy that Marie showed throughout was incredible. When Marie states that she loves what she does, and does what she loves, this is an understatement. Early on, Marie made it clear that she wants to know us, and that the ceremony would be a reflection of us. She was amenable to any and all requests throughout the process, which resulted in a ceremony that we felt was really ours. This was embodied in the comments from those attending the wedding, from “what a phenomenal ceremony” to “it was truly you” to “loved how it was formally informal” to “one of the best ceremonies that we had experienced.” Marie was instrumental in “calming everyone down” and when she said there was nothing to worry about (i.e. “you’re not going to screw up”), she was right – and it was because she knows how to make everyone (bride, groom, and the wedding party) feel at ease.

Marie Tyler Wiley was excellent. Before our ceremony she sent us a questionnaire to get to know us. She used the answers that we sent to create our ceremony & vows. She was spot on, it was amazing! I couldn’t believe how well she got to know us from those questions! She even joked around & made us laugh, which I had let her know, was important to me. I love to laugh & did not want an overly serious ceremony. My husband & I had decided to elope before our honeymoon and all of our eloping destinations/ideas were falling through. We let Marie know & she offered us her own small boat to take the two of us out on. For us it was PERFECT! My husband & I had met on a ferry that we take to work every day & we were cruising for our honeymoon. Eloping on Marie’s boat was the best way we could have been married. Marie has the best personality for being a Justice of the Peace- she’ll be as involved as you want her to be. For us, we really didn’t want a big deal & she was totally understanding of that. Talking to her you can tell that she loves the big stuff. She loves weddings, but she was able to come down to our level of casualness as well. You can just tell with her that she really enjoys celebrating people in love. We were both completely comfortable with her as our JOP & would highly recommend her to anyone looking to have a wedding- big or very small! She is known to be a popular JOP in southeastern CT, however for our small ceremony we were able to book with her just a week & a half in advance, so don’t let that dissuade you from contacting her.

I can not begin to explain what a wonderful person and what an absolutely amazing wedding officiant Marie is. I can not image a more perfect wedding ceremony than the one Marie lead for my wife and I. Marie also married my brother and sister in law in 2010 so she is now somewhat of a family tradition! She made our ceremony so personal and beautiful. There wasn't a dry eye! So many people came up to us after and said "I don't ever cry at weddings, but..." She works with you to write it so you can really make it your own. Marie is also available for you for advice, suggestions and help along the way. She has truly found her calling, I can't imagine anyone better to preform our wedding!

Oh how we love Marie. When I had first emailed her, we decided to meet up. What I thought was a quick visit turned into an hour and half conversation with what seemed liked a long lost friend. Marie has the personality to make everyone feel comfortable. My husband did not meet her until the rehearsal, and in the car on the way home he explained how we had picked the perfect JP, someone to make our special day the best it could be. Marie helped me with any question I had, even if it had nothing to do with JP related events. She helped me with florist to hotel information. She wrote the perfect ceremony for us, and everyone thought it was wonderful. I only have the best to say about Marie in every way. No one can compare.

Marie is an excellent and professional officiant! We loved her from the moment we first spoke with her on the phone. Her positive energy is instantly contagious and she made us relaxed and confident immediately. We spoke and met with her a couple of times before our wedding to get to know each other and talk about what we wanted for the ceremony. Marie provided us with some options for style of ceremony and easily incorporated some special things we really wanted to include. Her experience is great, she has a plethora of ceremony styles and options. Our family and friends all loved her as well. She added fun and sparkle to the ceremony and her caring nature is instantly evident and unsurpassed. I recommend her highly!

Marie was amazing to work with. From day one, she put us at ease in knowing that there would be one huge thing, the ceremony, that we would not have to worry about. Marie was available as many times as we needed for questions, suggestions, feedback, revisions, and anything else we needed her for. She was also a fantastic resource for the other aspects of the wedding (she helped us pick an awesome DJ) since she has done so many weddings.
Bottom line, having Marie as our officiant was the best decision. She made our ceremony "ours". it was as if she has known us our entire lives....
Our guests comments afterwards such as "she was fantastic!", "wow, she really made the ceremony great!", "we've never been to such an amazing ceremony! Marie was amazing!" were all we needed to hear.
Hands down. She is the best!

Marie was one of our most responsive and flexible vendors and we really appreciated having her guidance. She let us edit the ceremony as much as we wanted beforehand, which was really great. We were really pleased with how smoothly everything went on the wedding day, and we received many compliments about the ceremony from our guests afterward.

I live in Texas, and decided that I wanted to have my big special day in Mystic, Connecticut. With having to travel so far, I wanted to make sure that my day would be everything that I wanted and more! I spent weeks researching locations and officiants. I saw that Marie Wiley was HIGHLY rated. In communicating with her, Marie and I had an instant friendship. She was so warm, and genuinely excited for us before we had even met! We were in contact for an entire year before my wedding. We communicated constantly, and she was good at getting back to me very quickly. In preparation for writing the ceremony, Marie sent a detailed "getting to know you" survey, that asked a lot of questions to really learn about us and our relationship. What did I get weeks later? The most BEAUTIFUL ceremony I could have asked for. Marie used so many details from our love story in the ceremony, and tied it together in such a way that I was blown away (and that was just from reading the word document!) On my big day, as we got married on the coast at our outdoor ceremony, it was so beautiful and perfect. She selected a private area for us to have our wedding, and it was just amazing. So beautiful! Marie was truly loving and genuine. She was so excited to see us, and made the day completely comfortable! Even though it was the first time meeting, it felt like I had known her for years. The best thing about Marie and what I fell in love with was her background. She became a wedding officiant after her and her husband's bad wedding experience. She said it was so short and not special that she wanted to make sure no one else had to go what they went through. She wants to make sure everyone she marries has the perfect day and something so unique and special. Marie definitely delivered. I have made a friend for life, and can't wait until we visit Mystic again so we can get together and see her again. HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend hiring Marie. If you've thought about anyone else, just reach out and talk to her. You will see that she is more than worth it and you won't give it a second though. Pricing is very fair for the personal attention you'll receive and the great day you will have. Thanks Marie for everything!

No matter what the question, she helped us with anything and everything we asked. She is also very quick to reply back to you. Her ceremonies that she created were beautiful and we had a hard time picking the best one. She was incredible from the moment we met to our wedding day. My husband and I would highly recommend her for your wedding. Thank you Marie! You really are the best!

She also has so much wedding experience that she can provide advice. As a lesbian couple, we were mixing tradition with some of our own ideas. Marie had an excellent suggestion on how to incorporate our moms into the processional. It worked great and made both moms feel special. We received many compliments about the ceremony and Marie. We recommend working with her, you won't be disappointed.

Due to my husband and I not wanting to marry in a church, I was very skeptical about finding someone who could perform a ceremony that would not only touch us, but our families and friends as well. After talking on the phone with Marie, my husband and I knew she was the one. We met with her well before our wedding day, reviewed all the details and she wrote our ceremony exactly the way we wanted. She even included little details about things happening in our lives before and during our relationship. The day came and our ceremony was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. Her demeanor was fun, exciting, exhuberant and she made our wedding ceremony unforgettable. Our guests are still talking about her!! Love you Marie and thank you!!!

We live out of state and Marie helped us find everything from the perfect florist to where to have our perfect celebratory lunch. Her suggestion of photographer was, again, perfect! Marie could not have been more PERFECT!! Thank You Marie.

Marie was terrific! She has the greatest, most fun-loving personality and fit right in with everyone, from the wedding party to my grandparents. She sat with some of the groomsmen at the rehearsal dinner and there was nothing but laughter coming from that side of the table! Other guests commented that she was funny, and that the ceremony was original.

We decided to go with a Justice of the Peace because I'm Christian and my husband is Jewish. We gave Marie a few other details about ourselves on her questionnaire, and she gave us some sample ceremonies. We were able to develop a custom ceremony that reflected our personalities.

Looking back, I couldn't imagine anyone else officiating on our special day. Thanks Marie!

Marie,

We just wanted you to know what a fantastic job you did for us. Everyone, and I mean everyone loved you. They kept telling us how great and funny you were and they really enjoyed the ceremony. From the beginning each and every subtle nuance you anticipated and were ready for...as far as me being a soon to be bride. Your professionalism is unsurpassed!!! What I thought was really great was when I caught you breaking up a little at the end which I thought was so sweet. I am just so glad we found you and you made taking our vows very, very special. We not only found a JP, but a friend. Thanks for everything.

Dear Marie,

The day has come and gone, and it was WONDERFUL! Dennis and I couldn't have been happier with our ceremony. We wouldn't have been able to do it without you. All the different readings and vows you sent us were a huge help. Pulling from all your materials made it possible for us to create a ceremony that truly reflected who we are and what we wanted to express to each other and our children. Can you ask for anything more than that on your wedding day? We thank you!

Finding someone on line to marry you is a leap of faith, that I imagine doesn't always work out, but it sure did with you. Thank you for making our ceremony a moment in our lives that we will cherish and remember always.

You were great!

Love,
Laura and Dennis, West Hartford, CT

Mary Wiley was the PERFECT JP for our wedding. We're in our mid-60's and wanted someone special to conduct our wedding ceremony - not the impersonal, boring sort of service that we'd been to so many times. Mary sent us tons of suggested poems and other ideas to tailor our wedding to our desires. While a small wedding of 30 friends and family, they are typical New Yorkers - not afraid to voice their opinions (been there, done that). Literally everyone said it was the best service they'd ever attended. It was solemn in part, but personalized and fun in other areas. Marie sensed how nervous we were & pulled us back into reality by her words and her joy. That's what I remember the most - the sheer joy she brought to our special day. I'd say that she has this down pat and is a very engaging professional who will put a spark into anyone's wedding day. No one could want for more! Marie Wiley justly deserves her #1 rating in CT for the past 3 years.

A few years ago, my mom went to a wedding and came back raving about the officiant who had done the ceremony. "It was so personal...It felt as if she had known them for years! I LOVED it." So, when I got engaged a few years later and decided to get married at a vineyard, my mom recommended I call the amazing officiant she had told me about. My first conversation with Marie pretty much sealed the deal. She was outgoing, funny and by the end of our 45 minute phone call, I felt like we were bff's. The preparation for the ceremony was simple...we filled out a questionnaire, sent it back to her, and she sent us 3 sample ceremonies. It took me awhile to piece together a ceremony that worked for us but she provided a great foundation for me to work off of. Although there were a few instances where MTW took awhile to respond to my emails, I never felt stressed or not taken care of. My husband and I also wanted one of our cousins to be a part of the ceremony as well and Marie was totally cool with that. She even let our cousin do the vow part of our ceremony which was so special and meant the world to us. The ceremony was flawless and she really made us feel at ease. One of the most memorable moments was when, in the middle of the outdoor ceremony, it started raining...hard. Without hesitation or panic, MTW calmly (and with her wonderful sense of humor) asked the guests if we should movie the ceremony inside. We took a brief 5 minute intermission while we all trekked across the field to the tent set up for cocktail hour. The rest of the ceremony felt so intimate as all our friends and family were standing in a half circle around us. it was perfect.

Marie performed our ceremony and did a fantastic job. We chose her mostly because we were able to help write the ceremony. Those that could hear the ceremony gave us a lot of compliments. She was funny and upbeat and it was very well-written.

We had an outdoor ceremony and the rain plan was a tent. Well it down poured for the entire ceremony - the loudest part during our vows. I had asked Marie if she needed a mic a few weeks prior and she said no. Under normal circumstances, she wouldn't have needed one. However, because of the rain, friends that were seated in the 4th row couldn't hear a word. That was unfortunate because we spent a lot of time and energy putting the ceremony together and so many of our guests didn't hear any of it. I should have insisted.

Marie & I wrote a lot of e-mails back and forth and there were a few times that I had to write her a second or third follow-up (these were early on - the few weeks before, she was completely on-point).

All in all, I would absolutely recommend her and she did perform a beautiful ceremony. It's just a shame that so many couldn't hear it.

We can't imagine a more perfect choice for our officiant than Marie Wiley. She was a wonderful person to work with. All of our communications prior to the wedding were easy, thoughtful and smooth. She helped design a wonderful ceremony that was personal and surpassed our expectations. We greatly appreciated her constant communication and updates during the process. She was so easy to talk and work with. She helped make our wedding day even more perfect. We cannot thank her enough.

Marie was great! We received many comments on how wonderful they thought our ceremony was. If you're looking for someone to take the edge off and help relax the crowd, Marie's your girl. She is quite talkative, but she doesn't overdo it during the ceremony.

Marie was a great fit for my ceremony. I had a small group at my wedding and Marie was able to include everyone, and keep the mood happy and fun. She also went out of her way to travel to Rhode Island and had a good time. I would recommend her, especially for young couples or small groups.

Marie was great from the start and tended to my last minute details. She is very energetic and entertaining. Everyone really enjoyed the rehearsal and her company. We tried to meet with Marie before the wedding to sort out minor details on how we wanted the ceremony presented but she was unfortunately no where to be found come time to meet. SO our first meeting was at the rehearsal which went well. During our actual wedding ceremony (which I clearly wanted to keep classy and sophisticated) Marie kept randomly referring to us as "girlfriend" and "boyfriend" which highly irritated us, our parents and several other family members who are still talking about it. It gave the ceremony a non-classy, we're not serious about getting married vibe which was unfortunate. Overall, if you want spunk and uniqueness to you wedding ceremony, Marie is right for you.
