Marilyn was fantastic. She officiated for our elopement in New Orleans. She was very responsive over email and by phone. She sent us some samples for the ceremony language and immediately was open to our changes and used them in our ceremony. She was very professional, looked great, and made our ceremony feel special. Thank you so much, Marilyn, for helping with our wedding day!

Marilyn was our officiant in May 2014. She was recommended by our wedding planner in our search for a non-denominational wedding officiant, She was flexible as we navigated thru the wedding planning process and she made it very easy for us to craft our own ceremony - she sent us a few different ceremony outlines for us to pick and choose from.

We were able to add the things we wanted, adjust the wording to better suit our needs and to let her be the expert on the best way to meet our wishes.

We added a unity candle to our outdoor ceremony. This turned out to be a comical moment during our ceremony when my husband and I picked up the two candles to light the unity candle and realized the two candles were joined at the wick. To compound the humor the wind picked up and we had problems lighting the candles. However, Marilyn was able to roll with the situation and handled it like a pro.

It was the moment that people talked about and made the ceremony unique.

This woman is the real deal - We highly recommend working with her if you want your wedding to be special, spiritual and memorable.

Mrs. Marilyn is fantastic. She really puts her heart into making your wedding truly special. She is an absolute joy to work with. The love she has in her own marriage is evident the first time you meet her.

Our wedding was a "destination wedding" for us as we live two states over from New Orleans. So after searching reviews and checking websites, we found Marilyn Dennis. Other officiants came across cold and robotic, but when we chatted with Marilyn on the phone we knew she was the person to unite us on our wedding day. Marilyn is a peaceful and pleasant person. Her mannerisms are genuine and true. As our ceremony was non-religious but we knew we wanted many of the "stereo-typical" items to be said. Mailyn was wonderful working with us as we "cut and paste" items from many different types of ceremonies. We hope to be able to renew our vows in years to come and have Marilyn there to "join us as one" again. If you are looking for a pleasant person and someone who truly loves the love around her, Marilyn Dennis is whom you need to precide over your ceremony.

Marilyn Dennis performed a beautiful service for me and my wife Sema, a native of Turkey, at our home in New Orleans. We waited for over year to obtain permission from the U.S. government so that we had to organize a wedding quickly once permission was granted if we were to marry this year. Marilyn graciously agreed to perform service on a Monday evening. She has a sonorous voice and beautiful manner that filled our guests and our house with love and joy. We could not have selected anyone better. Kenneth and Sema Harl

Marilyn performed our December 27th wedding in the French Quarter. We could not be happier with the service she provided! She was sincere, heartfelt, genuine, and made everyone feel like they were a part of the wedding. She gave us suggestions on what vows to say based on our beliefs and helped us modify the vows to fit our personalities. She had all the paperwork ready for us to sign afterwards, and had the form to waive the 72 hour waiting period. She was very reliable and easy to communicate with in the weeks leading up to the wedding. I would recommend Marilyn to anyone looking for someone to officiate! Thanks so much, Marilyn! - Julianne and Bryan
