Mary was a wonderful addition to our wedding! She made the day truly about us. She seemed so genuinely happy to be there with us and to tell our story. I never thought much about the ceremony until we spoke with Mary for the first time. We really liked her approach, and with the amount of people that told us how beautiful our ceremony was...clearly we made the right choice! It was no cookie cutter template - Mary wrote the ceremony specifically for us. She took the time to learn about us and our relationship and even our families. She even knew my nephew's name! With all of the time and energy we put into planning everything, it was so nice to have her do the same! She really made us feel special and my mom said Mary was "beaming" from the moment she got there and all through the ceremony. Even my mom loved how happy Mary seemed to be to marry us. It was a really special feeling on such an important day

My husband and I couldn't be more thankful to have found Mary Coburn for our wedding this past weekend. From our initial meeting to the ceremony itself, Mary was kind, warm, reassuring and personalized our ceremony so much that people assumed we'd known her all our lives at the reception. Mary provided help along the entire wedding planning process, gave great feedback and helped us choose our vows, ring vows and readings. She is amazing. We have received non-stop compliments about how beautiful the ceremony was. Mary, we are so thankful for you and so happy we had you officiate our ceremony. You are the absolute best!!!! -Caroline & James

Mary was truly more wonderful than words could describe. She took careful time and deliberation in writing our ceremony, and delivered it with ease- because she took to heart getting to know us. She made our wedding complete...and for that I am forever grateful. Countless guests were in awe of her skills and it reflects in the memories shared on our big day. She also brought her own suggestions and ideas to enhance our already meaningful story--she was a dream come true. She was wonderful to work with, very responsive and always available for assistance. She handled herself professionally and calmly even during stressful times and never faulted. I can't say enough, other than you will miss out if you book anyone else besides Mary.

She even gave us a commemorative book with our entire ceremony typed out so years from now we can remember every detail. Like I said...don't miss out.

Mary is absolutely amazing! I felt a connection with her from the very first consultation about my wedding ceremony. I am so happy to have found her and couldn't have imagined a more perfect ceremony. Mary is someone I am truly grateful for having come into my life, she is thorough, attentive, caring and really personalizes the ceremony to be unique to the couple. Any questions that came up along the way she was quick to reply to and a pure joy to collaborate with. Simply perfect!

Mary is absolutely the best-in-class for wedding officiants. Everyone that attended the wedding was amazed at how beautiful and personalized the ceremony was. After only a few meetings, Mary was able to capture the love that we have for each other and some of the greatest memories we had leading up to the wedding along with great comedic relief to keep everyone's attention throughout the entire ceremony. Mary was so amazing at telling our story that people thought she was a longtime family friend who has known us forever. She was thoughtful and articulate in creating a ceremony that was perfect for our personalities and was extremely kind and supportive leading up to and including the wedding rehearsal and ceremony. Mary was nice enough to have phone conversations after the first in person meeting as we were very busy and a bit too far to make the drive. Mary orchestrated the rehearsal in great detail the day before the ceremony and everyone knew exactly what would happen and where they needed to be. Mary even created a wine sharing ceremony for us with a family friend making a reading which was a perfect personal touch. We could not say enough great things about Mary and neither could any of our guests. We thank her for the life long memories of the best ceremony we could have ever asked for. Thanks Mary!!

Mary Coburn is a superb officiant, and I would recommend her to ANYONE! We wanted to have a ceremony that was thoughtful and well spoken, and she did just that. She took the time to meet with us, get to know us on a personal level, and take all those little things and incorporate them into a flawless ceremony. I would say 97% of the guests who complimented our ceremony and reception made it a priority to point out how wonderful the ceremony was, thanks to Mary. You would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not choose her to officiate your wedding! Don't look elsewhere, just go with Mary!

I cannot say enough about the wonderful service that Mary provided. She was present and thorough for the whole experience. The process began by meeting Mary where she got to know both myself and my husband. From there we filled out a questionnaire about our relationship. Mary was even willing to talk through the questionnaire with my husband on the phone since he had trouble finding time to sit down and respond to the questions. Mary kept us apprised of her writing process and we were able to view and comment on her drafts. The first time I read our ceremony out loud to my husband, I had tears running down my face as I read. Mary created a beautiful ceremony. Mary was beyond professional. She organized everything so much so that my wedding planner at the venue mentioned she had never seen such an organized processional list. The ceremony was my favorite part of my wedding. Mary was able to tell our story and make it completely personal. Mary helped us write our own vows in a special, unique format that I was proud to be a part of. I have pictures of my wedding guests doubled over laughing and in the next photo, crying. I am a very emotional person, and Mary had tips to help me stay calm and focused during the ceremony. The number one comment we heard from our guests was how great Mary was and how great our ceremony was. I would recommend Mary to any bride hoping to have a personal and unique wedding ceremony.

Prior to getting married, my wife and I discussed what the ceremony meant to both of us and how we wanted to set the tone for the reception. My wife and I come from very distinct cultural backgrounds (Asian and Nicaraguan) while having a hugely diverse set of friends with different backgrounds, belief structures and general set of expectations for weddings. We are both people pleasers and wanted to make sure that our guests felt included and felt free to have fun with no rigidity.

The most important piece, in our opinion, was the Justice of the Peace. We researched all of the major websites like this one and found one common name. Mary Coburn. We read nothing but great reviews from couples that were married by her and vendors that dealt with her consistently. Nothing but praise!

We decided on her, I mean from what we saw she was a cut above the rest. After our initial meeting, we were blown away at her candor, professionalism, and warmth. She made the process a wonderful exploration of our relationship. She made the process about our love. She took into account everything we asked for and was willing to keep us involved intimately with the process.

After setting up the ceremony and getting our input we received the final draft of the written ceremony. As a man I am not ashamed of admitting that it made me tear up. Mary was able to beautifully and succinctly describe our journey and convey the love we have for each other and those in our lives. I was expecting a good ceremony, but I wasn’t expecting something to touch me (and us) the way it did.

Needless to say that the wedding went off without a hitch and Mary pulled off a great ceremony. Our families felt connected and our guests felt welcomed. I cannot say enough about Mary but will conclude by saying that she will be the best decision you make.

There are no words to adequately describe how unbelievably amazing Mary was throughout our entire wedding process. From the minute we first met, she greeted my husband and I with open arms and made us feel so comfortable and welcoming. Since my husband and I were living in Texas at the time, Mary was so accommodating when it came to scheduling meetings and helping us through the process of planning a long-distance wedding. She provided us with tons of resources and examples to help us make our ceremony exactly as we had imagined. And let me tell you, the ceremony was INCREDIBLE. I cannot begin to tell you how many people complimented us on the ceremony and how amazing of a job Mary had done. It made my husband and I so happy that our guests truly enjoyed the wedding ceremony. Mary was really able to take the information she got from us and form it into such an eloquent, personal, and fun program, which we will cherish forever. I wholeheartedly recommend having Mary as your celebrant, it was one of the best decisions we made!

Mary officiated our wedding this past June and it's difficult to put into words how happy I am that we chose her. She is extremely thoughtful, responsive, and made our ceremony (the most important part of the day) so personal and "us". For some background on why we chose her - I grew up Catholic and my husband is not religious so when we decided to get married, we wanted the commitment we were making to each other to mean something to us, and we weren't sure if getting married in a church would give us that. Mary also married my best friend 5 years prior and I remember how amazingly unique their ceremony was and how I walked away feeling overwhelmed with love and thinking that was what I wanted. Mary took the time to meet with us, listen to our story and what we wanted for each other, and blended in some of my catholic traditions to create a ceremony that was so touching most of my guests either at the wedding or afterwards couldn't stop raving about her. If you want a beautiful, loving, unique and personal ceremony for one of the most special days of your lives, I would 100% recommend Mary.
