Mary was a pleasure to work with during our wedding planning! We could not have picked a better Officiant to perform our ceremony! She is organized, compassionate, and extremely thorough in everything she does. It was so comforting to know that she was only an email or phone call away. Mary was very interested in not only getting to know us as individuals and a couple, but she also felt it was important to get to know our family and bridal party. She complied a beautiful ceremony with such grace and pose. Mary wanted to share our story of how we met, and it made our ceremony extra special. She also gave us some great poetry and other symbolic rituals to give our ceremony a more meaningful experience. Overall, Mary was the perfect choice for us, and it definitely showed on our wedding day. All our guests raved about what a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony she created! It made us feel so happy. We are happy to have Mary as part of our lives!

For anyone out there looking for an officiant, look no further. Mary is absolutely one hundred percent the BEST I've ever met. As soon as we met her, I knew we had to have her perform our ceremony. She felt like family. She is warm, funny, charming, easy to talk to, welcoming, and excited for your wedding day. She truly wants it to be as special as you do. I can't believe the level of detail she put into our ceremony. Every single person we spoke to commented on the ceremony and Mary's delivery. Most people thought she was a member of the family or close family friend due to the intimate, beautiful words she spoke. I think booking Mary was without a doubt the best decision we made in planning our wedding. If you want a personalized, witty, warm, beautiful ceremony that pays homage to your love as a couple and allows your guests to feel like they are really a part of your ceremony, book Mary immediately. She is truly the best in the business. I can't say enough good things. We LOVE Mary!!!!!!!

I don't think it is possible to write eloquently enough to express how amazing Mary is at what she does. The time she spent with my partner and I prior to our wedding getting to know us on a personal level was just completely unexpected. Based on our many in depth conversations, individual questionnaires, and multiple email threads, Mary created a 100% unique and personal ceremony that was everything we could have hoped for and more. Friends and family assumed that we had known Mary for years, when that couldn't have been further from reality. Her focus on learning who each of her couples are is just that incredible. If you are looking to have a completely personal and intimate ceremony that will share who you and your fiancé are at the core, I cannot recommend Mary enough. Also, she creates each of her couples a beautiful keepsake transcription of the ceremony. We loved it and keep it on display in our home,

My wife Delia and I were MORE than excited to work with Mary. She was wonderful and wrote us the most beautiful ceremony. Every one commented to us afterwards how amazing it was. Mary was so patient with us when we weren't sure at the time what we wanted. She made us feel like we were her only clients. She is quick to repsond to your questions and really takes the time to get to know her couples. Our wedding day was the most special moment in our lives and she made all the difference with everything. Being a same sex couple, it was even more important to us to find someone with an open heart and mind. Mary is absolutely the best at making you feel comfortable and important. Thank you again to Mary, our wedding day would not have been as perfect without you!
With all our love and admiration,
Dawn and Delia Wilson

All we can say is WOW - there literally are no words to describe how amazing Mary is and what a wonderful job she did with our ceremony. My wife and I first met Mary when she was performing another wedding a few years prior and we decided that if we were ever to get married, Mary would be the first vendor we called. As it turns out, when we got engaged we immediately thought of and called Mary to make sure she was available for our date. What makes Mary different from other wedding officiants is that Mary takes the time and really gets to KNOW the couple. The wedding ceremony itself is so extraordinarily enhanced because Mary really knew my wife and I by the time we finally got married.

We could literally take pages and pages talking about how wonderful it was to work with Mary but instead I will just summarize with this - nearly all of our guests came up to us afterwards and commented that it was the best wedding ceremony that they had ever witnessed. Simply put, Mary is a wonderful person who happens to be wedding celebrant - anyone lucky enough to work with her will have a spectacular day.

Choosing Mary for our wedding Officiant was one of the best things my husband and I did. Our ceremony was INCREDIBLE! Our guests kept telling us that it was one of the most amazing ceremonies they have ever heard. She really captured our relationship and tailored the ceremony to be exactly what we wanted. The way she spoke about us, it sounded like she knew us for YEARS when we had really only met once. All of my single friends told me that when they get married, they are definitely hiring Mary!

Furthermore, Mary was so incredibly helpful during the rehearsal. She was extremely organized and really helped everybody figure out the flow of the day.

I could not have asked for a better experience. Mary truly has a gift for this and has definitely found her calling. Thank you so much for making our day so special!!

Mary Coburn is an extraordinary wedding celebrant and we are so happy that we listened to all of the glowing reviews online and that we chose Mary! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, and she was a big part of making it so special. We really enjoyed collaborating with Mary to create our unique ceremony. Through our meetings, phone calls, emails, and surveys, she really captured our love story and expressed it so beautifully. Our family and friends have all told us that they have never attended such a meaningful, enjoyable wedding ceremony. We have received countless compliments on our ceremony and we agree with all of our guests that she is wonderful!! Mary is a very organized, hardworking, and caring person, and she is passionate about creating the perfect wedding ceremony to reflect the couple’s unique vision. Mary is a great listener and is very thoughtful. She is also an extremely talented writer, as shown through her verbose email correspondence and beautifully crafted ceremonies. She will revise and brainstorm new ideas for the ceremony until you absolutely love it. She had many ideas for quotes, readings, and rituals, and she was open to new suggestions too. Mary created a ceremony that really reflected our personalities, our love for each other, and the importance of our families and friends in our lives. There were touching moments and there were moments that made everyone laugh. Mary directed the rehearsal the day before the wedding and perfected every detail. On the wedding day she was calm, eloquent, and looked lovely in all of our photos. Through the collaboration process with Mary to create our ceremony, she encouraged us to reflect on our relationship with each other, reminding us amidst all of the craziness of wedding planning what this day is really all about. Mary also made a pretty keepsake book with the words from our ceremony, which we will always treasure alongside the photos of our special day. She is the very best!

Giving Mary 5 stars just isn't enough! She did A++ work and was such an important part of our ceremony. Her writing is excellent, and her oration is even more spectacular. She met with us on multiple occasions to make sure the ceremony was extremely personal, and always met us half-way and on our time schedule. She was very easy to talk to and was always receptive to details and clarifications. She was professional in dealing with us and our family. Mary is someone who will forever be in our hearts, as we look back to our wedding and remember how big of a part she played in making it the happiest day of our lives.

Mary Coburn was our wedding officiant for our June 29th 2013 wedding ceremony. She was an absolute pleasure to work with during the entire wedding process. Mary helped ease my "ceremony anxiety" by providing me with ideas of what would help me to stay grounded and in the moment on the big day. She helped us polish and perfect our personal vows and she gave us helpful feedback on the personal components we were adding to the ceremony. She was extremely attentive to our needs and worked hard to create a highly personalized ceremony that reflected our family values, our upbringings and our love story. Mary was able to involve our families and friends in the ceremony and made everyone feel connected and part of something special. Our loving and emotional ceremony was my favorite part of the wedding and I couldn't be happier with how everything unfolded. It is clear that Mary loves what she does and all the effort and hard work she puts forth is well worth it.

I can't possibly begin to explain how important Mary was to our wedding. She was more than just a celebrant for us - she truly helped us shape and set the tone for our ceremony, and served to help myself and my husband fully prepare emotionally and mentally for the day. Mary's personal and thoughtful approach was so valuable to us and she went out of her way to get to know us as individuals and a couple, and to shape the ceremony in a way that was both personal, spiritual and meaningful to our families and friends. Mary, thank you thank you.
