We feel so lucky to have had Marsha conduct our ceremony. She was so easy to talk to, and helped us to really find a way to tailor our ceremony to meet our personal needs. She was truly in the moment each and everytime we spoke, and made our special day even more perfect! Everyone made comments that our ceremony was beautifully written!

Marsha was the officiant at our wedding and added a wonderful touch to our special day. Her words were eloquent and her professionalism was impeccable. She was even kind enough to take time to meet and continually correspond with us before the wedding to make sure she delivered exactly the kind of ceremony we wanted. We could not be happier with Marsha's immaculate job on the best day of our lives.

Reverend Marsha Mendizza was AMAZING!!

My husband and I would like to Thank Marsha, our
wedding ceremony could not have been any more perfect!!

Marsha is amazing, she is incredibly professional but also warm, and charming, after sitting down and talking with her she knew exactly what we wanted, we gave her carte blanche on writing our ceremony for us.

The ceremony that Marsha created for us was truly one of a kind, It was clear she puts her heart in each beautiful ceremony she does, as she said her last words in our ceremony , I couldn't help thinking how she knew EXACTLY what both my husband and I wanted, we were in awe as were our guests! All of our guests commented how Beautiful our ceremony was.

Thank you Marsha for making our Wedding day Perfect.

Sincerely, Tim and Cecilia Farrands

Rev. Marsha is the best! We absolutely cherish how romantic and rich and perfect our ceremony was to us--and everyone else keeps telling us so! She really helped guide us--and we needed it because we had never done this (gotten married) before! She really seemed to get us, and had great suggestions based on lots of experience, but encouraged us to make our ceremony very personal and special to us as a couple. She is very professional, but also filled with spunk & warmth! She is very passionate about what she does, and values officiating your ceremony in a way that is palpable, you can really feel that she wants to be there! We really appreciate her for being such an important part of our special day and couldn't have been more happy & satisfied! We love Marsha!

Marsha was a wonderful officiant who made our ceremony very special and it will be something that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Having sat through some uncomfortable wedding ceremonies in the past we wanted something fast and simple. Marsha delivered that but made it very personal and very touching. She provides just enough guidance to be helpful without being overbearing, which is great when you're creating your own wedding ceremony. And she is a nice lady to boot. We recommend her highly.

Look No More, This Gal is your lady for the job. So respectful and so professional. I wouldn't choose anyone else. Marsha did my Mom's Memorial Service a few years back and I figured I would give her a shout for my Wedding. Of Course she gladly said yes and provided a great Ceremony for me and my Now Husband. I keep getting compliments all the time from our family and friends, on just how good the wedding was.
Thanks Marsha,

Our Best,

I consider myself very lucky. I went to my friend's wedding in January that was performed by Marsha. I was moved, touched, and totally blown-away by the moment she created with a beautiful ceremony. So I called her immediately to do mine!
We felt a great connection to her right off the bat and knew that we made the right decision choosing her. Marsha took all the stress off of us as she helped create the perfect ceremony!
I didn't think it was possible to walk down the aisle so relaxed knowing that our ceremony, which was the absolute high point of our whole day, was a dream come true!
Our ceremony was truly US.

One week before the "big day", our officiant canceled, which was one of those cliche wedding catastrophes that is usually only funny years later in retrospect. However, I can honestly say I feel lucky to have had our original officiant cancel because we otherwise would not have found Marsha.

From the very first conversation we had, to the "getting to know each other" conference calls, to the wedding ceremony itself, it was an absolute pleasure working with Marsha. Despite having only ONE week to work with Marsha, my husband and I both felt that the ceremony she created was perfectly "us". The tone was perfect: romantic and sweet, but not corny and not too serious - just what we had asked for. The feedback we received from friends and family was overwhelmingly positive, as well. I know thanks to several independent sources, that my dad had to wipe a couple tears from his eyes. He and my mom told my husband and I several times what a fabulous job Marsha did, and we couldn't agree more.

I highly recommend Marsha Mendizza for anyone looking for a customized, personalized, beautiful ceremony. She even has a video of herself speaking on her website so you can get a sense of her delivery (so, so helpful when selecting an officiant). Thank you Marsha!!

It has almost been a year since my hubby and I tied the knot, and I'm still just so very happy with our wedding officiant Marsha. She guided us through the process and held our hands, as we were both clueless as to what we needed to do to make our ceremony special.

She's spunky and funny, and made us feel at ease. She even took charge before the ceremony and handles the crazy groomsmen like a boss! She was just amazing.

She was professional and truly understood us as a couple, and it showed in the ceremony. Im just ecstatic that I was able to find her and have her as a part of our big day.

We were looking for someone to guide us through a very simple ceremony. We were so happy that we found Marsha. With her guidance, professionalism, and kindness, our ceremony turned out so beautiful, simple, and yet...so elegance, better than I had imagined it would be. There was not a dried eye in the house! Marsha, thank you so much for the most memorable ceremony. We will treasure this special moment for the rest of our lives.

We decided to get married! I wanted someone who was REAL. Someone who would listen to our story and be able to put together a ceremony about us. Not the standard textbook wedding but a wedding with meaning, love, and style. Marsha is all that plus more! I telephoned several officiants and had the telephone conversation; I was becoming desperate. When I answered the phone call from Marsha she said, “This is Marsha ". The moment I heard her voice, I knew she was the one! It was as if she was a long lost friend who had come back from a long voyage. The connection was instant and I was and still am happy to recount my whole experience with Marsha. My husband as well was touched by her kindness, beauty and panache. If you are looking for someone spectacular then Marsha is your lady. We love her and she will always have a special place in our hearts. She brought our love to the forefront and presented it with dedication, respect and intelligence.

Marsha is a wonderful woman who puts the couple first! She put together a completely unique ceremony with us - guiding us through each step. Everyone commented on how beautiful the ceremony was because it was 100% authentic! We selected our readings, determined how long we wanted it, what parts we wanted to say (not too many). She has a great presence - highly recommend her for a very special, meaningful ceremony.

We were referred to Marsha through our wedding planner, Jennifer. We were down to the wire... we planned our wedding in just 7 weeks. Marsha returned my call very quickly and was willing to meet with us on such short notice. When we met Marsha for our consultation, we were so happy and felt so lucky to have found her.
Marsha was very warm and took some time to get to know us, she encouraged us to contribute to the ceremony with our own words, we are happy now that we did.
The ceremony was... i can't find the right word... beautiful. Her delivery was awesome, her words were meaningful (and believable), she set the tone for the rest of the evening.
My guests loved her! We have had friends and family comment, unsolicited, on how warm she was and how amazing she made our ceremony.
Thanks Marsha, Holly and Jeff

Marsha was simply amazing at officiating my wedding!

I had a large wedding at my grandfather's private estate in Malibu and she delivered the ceremony flawlessly and excellently.

She is the complete package--everything you would want in an officiant. Not only did she give us a quality service specifically tailored to our requests, she was affordable, and very warm, friendly, and genuine.

Marsha--thank you so very much for helping our big day become even bigger with a beautiful and elegant ceremony. It was one for the history books!


Love,

Marsha was not only a wonderful officiant performing a ceremony with feeling,
heart and richness...she was so much more. She guided us in the design of
a wedding day that reflected our values, our personalities and, especially
our love.

After conducting an awesomely beautiful wedding ceremony, when
she pronounced us husbands she had tears in her eyes...our happiness
was her happiness.

LBGT or straight...Marsha honors the love found between two people,
meeting our hearts with her own.

We continue to feel so lucky to have found her!
