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.

If you are looking to have a wedding ceremony that is memorable, unique, and personal, Mary is the best resource to make that happen! Choosing Mary to be our officiant was, by far, the greatest and easiest decision we made for our wedding. It’s not often that people remember details of a wedding ceremony, but we’ve been married for almost 5 months now and we still hear from our guests about how great Mary was. She truly has a passion for what she does and it shows. She not only creates an amazing ceremony, but she is so well-spoken, caring, organized, responsive, provides great advice (like how to walk down the stairs in a wedding dress without falling!), and makes you feel at ease. We only met with Mary a few times, but you would think we had known her for years, The ceremony that she created for us depicted our entire story in a way that captivated our guests the entire time. She was able to incorporate some Filipino wedding traditions, which was very special for my family who traveled all the way from the Philippines to attend our wedding. Mary made our guests feel like they were part of the ceremony. I was nervous that I would regret not having a church wedding because my family is very religious, but I couldn’t imagine having anyone else as our officiant other than Mary. We can’t thank Mary enough for everything she did for us!

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!

Mary is the best!! ??

I must say, Mary Coburn was the 1st and best choice for us!!  We got married in May 2015 at the Riverview in Simsbury, Connecticut.  I began my search for an officiant in/near CT on The Knot and came across Mary's name within the first few results.  I was happily surprised to see so many positive reviews for her, expressing just how wonderful she was!  I will admit, I was hesitant to inquire because the rate was a little higher than some I saw but the others all paled in comparison.  I definitely do not regret going with my gut instinct in choosing Mary.  She was worth every penny and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding celebrant/officiant.  From the moment we received her first reply, I knew we made the right choice.  We had arranged to meet in person to discuss the wedding and our ideas, preferences and get an overall feel for each other.  Again, we knew the moment we met that this was the right choice. We talked and laughed for hours.  It was like we all knew each other forever!  Within the first few minutes of our meeting, we knew we found our officiant!  We could not be happier with how everything went!!  Mary guided us through the entire process and provided a questionnaire for each my husband and I to fill out to get to know our story a little deeper.  This was so she could complete our personalized ceremony with her own special way with words.  Mary truly has a gift.  We were so incredibly pleased with the ceremony and heard nothing but great things from our happy guests.  Many people said it was the best ceremony they've ever head and everyone raved about Mary!  If you are looking for an officiant for your wedding, your search is over!  You will be happy you chose Mary Coburn!! ??  Thank you, Mary, for giving us the best gift of bringing my husband and I together in marriage and giving us all the memories that will last a lifetime!

With much love,
Ben & Becky S.
