Booking Mary was the very best decision we made when planning our wedding! Neither my husband or I is particularly religious, and we knew that we wanted a civil ceremony that would incorporate elements of the religions that we grew up with (Catholic, Jewish, and Quaker). We also wanted to ceremony to be personal to us- when we found Mary, we immediately knew we had found the right person! She was open to all of our ideas, and explained to us her process in creating a ceremony. Over the year and a half of our engagement, we spoke with and met with Mary several times- she really took the time to get to know us. She sent us drafts of our ceremony to make sure that we were happy with us, and helped us with suggestions of vows and readings to help us in selecting and writing our own.

Mary also coordinated the ceremony between us and our DJ. My husband and I are both theater people, and we were happy to find that Mary was a theater person as well, since it meant that we were all speaking the same language when it came to the actual production of the ceremony. She was extremely organized and efficient when running our rehearsal- she took the time to make sure that everyone was clear about what they needed to do, and gave helpful advice to get us all in the right mind set for the wedding. We really appreciated her reminding us to breath and be grounded during the ceremony, which is easy to forget when you are a bundle of nerves!

There are not enough words to express how grateful my husband and I are for the beautiful work Mary did on our wedding. Every single aspect of our ceremony was personal and spoke greatly of our life together. We worked for months with Mary in designing our wedding ceremony. She developed a beautifully written ceremony that I couldn't have even imagined before speaking with her.

What can you say about Mary but she is AMAZING!!!! We heard all evening how wonderful our ceremony was, how she told our story and that it was so special to hear. When you meet Mary it's like nothing else matters she chatted with us for almost 2 hours ensuring she was the right fit for us and taking us through her process to write a ceremony that is unique to you. We knew she was who we wanted and immediately booked!
Mary was there for every step filling out processional worksheets, preparing us for each step of the way. I even wanted to blend in my Ukrainian heritage. Mary loved the idea read up on the traditions checked to ensure she said everything right! She is the warmest most wonderful person you'll every meet. Our wedding day was perfect because our ceremony set the tone of love and celebration that we wanted! We can only thank Mary for that!

Mary was so wonderful to work with and really provided us with the perfect cermony. She sent us a list of questions to answer and used that information to make our ceremony a perfect representation of our relationship. During the reception everyone commented on how great Mary and the ceremony was. Mary made our ceremony feel special and we can't thank her enough for that.

It was absolutely wonderful having Mary as our officiant. Her dedication to really making the ceremony a truly special occasion shows from the first meeting all the way up to the day of the wedding. My husband as well as all of our friends and family found the ceremony that was custom written by Mary to be absolutely beautiful and weeks after the wedding we are still getting compliments about what a wonderful job she did. Can't say enough good things and couldn't have gotten a better officiant.

Mary is amazing!! I cannot stress that enough. Mary is such a sweet, gentle, fun, unquestioningly professional, and talented person to work with. She really takes the time to get to know you as a couple and really listen to, and work with you on crafting a truly unique reading. Even with all the pre-wedding stressors she is there for you for support and advice should you need it.
Mary officiated our wedding at The Society Room of Hartford on 11/2/14. She was there for us from the moment we met with her in March '14 till the moment the wedding was over. And it was just so wonderful having her throughout the whole process that when she had to leave I started crying. I didn't even cry during my ceremony! That's how amazing Mary is! You get to know her so well that she really feels like family; like your favorite aunt that just happens to be an awe inducing officiant. We just got so many compliments from our friends and family on the ceremony; it had them laughing and crying and they felt actively engaged in the reading. Mary acknowledges your wedding guests in her reading in a way that makes them truly know how special and grateful you are to have them at your ceremony.
My (now) husband is not the most extroverted person and it's not easy for him to get to know people but Mary brought him right out of his shell in a way I have never seen with a total stranger, that meant a lot to me that she was able to connect with him like that during our first meeting with her.
Seriously there is just no room for doubts about Mary as your officiant. Warmth and kindness just radiates off of her. Just e-mail or call her and let her make your ceremony absolutely tailored to you both, and unforgettable.

What can I say? Mary is absolutely amazing! 5 stars just isn't enough to capture what she did for us. From the moment we met, my (now husband) and I felt like we had known her forever. She exudes this warmth and care that we both really needed as we planned for our big day. We got so many comments after the ceremony, about how moving and personal it was-truly different from other ceremonies that our guests had witnessed. It is clear just how passionate Mary is about her work-she will do anything in her power to make your day the most special day of your life.

If I could give Mary more than 5 stars, I would. She was amazing. I was worried going into it that because we weren't doing a formal ceremony in a church that we wouldn't have a special ceremony, and I could not have been more wrong. As soon as we met with Mary I was sure that the ceremony would be exactly what we wanted. She put a lot of time and effort into getting to know us and our story and crafting a ceremony that fit us.

Despite how little of the wedding planning involves the ceremony itself, it was one of the most important things about our day. The ceremony was personal and even more special than I could have hoped. Mary went over every detail with us before the day and was very prepared on the day to make sure everyone was where they were supposed to be and knew what to do. It went flawlessly!

I got more compliments on the ceremony than just about anything else at the wedding. One of our guests said she thought it was the first time she'd ever actually listened to the entire ceremony. It was unique and personal. People kept asking how we thought of all these things, and I had to give all of the credit to Mary, because we did nothing. We could not have been happier with how it went and that is 100% because of Mary.

What to say? Mary is a class-act and so gifted with what she does. Everything from beginning to end was flawless. Her storytelling, and elegance is second-to-none. Anthony & I were referred to Mary by another Celebrant, and we knew after 5 minutes of meeting with Mary that she was the only one that we wanted to perform our ceremony. I could go on and on about how much we adore Mary and appreciate all that she did to make our special day all that we dreamed it would be, however it can be summed up in one word; Perfection!

It is now 10 days later and I still have people emailing, phoning and approaching me to say how amazed they were with Mary.
