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.

Easily the best decision we made during our wedding planning process! From the moment we met Mary for coffee, Eddie and I felt like we’d known her for years. She is incredibly easy to talk with and open up to and made the entire process light and fun while still capturing the seriousness of what we were doing. After our ceremony, people thought we were related because she made it so personal and even still – 4+ weeks later, we are still hearing what a fabulous job she did! We could not have picked a better person to marry us and hope to work with Mary again in the future!

Hiring Mary Coburn as our wedding officiant was probably one of the easiest and smartest decisions i made during my wedding planning process. She is genuinely one of the nicest people you will ever meet and truely cares about making your ceremony absolute perfection. She spent two hours with us during our FREE initial meeting just getting to know us and learning our story. During our ceremony you would have thought she was our friend for years. I never thought i would get so many compliments on our ceremony, she did an excellent job. i can not thank her enough for the outstanding job she did. She's worth every penny plus some. I think of Mary as not only a vendor, but now a friend. HIRE HER you wont be disapointed

Mary Coburn was an excellent officiant for our wedding this past April 2013. She is detail-oriented and truly gets to know the background story of the bride and groom. Mary has a calming presence, and I couldn't imagine anyone more prompt and efficient!

Every experience and interaction with Mary was beyond what we could imagine. Mary invests her heart and soul into creating a ceremony that is personal, intimate and simply beautiful. She has an uncanny ability to capture the spirit of a person and a couple in a truly heartfelt manner. Mary created a ceremony that my wife and I will cherish forever, and one that, to this day, is brought up in conversation with attendants as the most incredible ceremony they have ever witnessed. Members of our family have expressed interest in utilizing her expertise, and my wife and I look forward to involving Mary in future celebrations and special occasions. It was wholeheartedly an honor to have her as part of our wedding ceremony.

If you are looking for an officiant that will provide you with a service people will appreciate and enjoy than look no further. We learned of Mary through our photographer Carrie Draghi and we could not have been happier with the outcome. From the start we were put at ease with Mary by her level of involvement and her attention to detail through the planning process. We were asked to write answer a numerous amount of questions (separately) that ended up becoming the ceremony that Mary would pull together. Come the night of rehearsal you could tell Mary had a presence that she was going to guide us through our special day and leave no stone unturned. When the ceremony finally happened we could not have been happier. As previous reviews have also mentioned Mary will NOT just give you the insert name here type of ceremony. She will tailor the ceremony to the couple you are. I know she was phenomenal because so many people keep speaking about how great it was to be a part of the ceremony.

If you are looking for a ceremony people will remember then Mary is your person.

Thanks again Mary!

Mary is the absolute best!! From the moment we first met her, my now husband and I were blown always by her genuine warmth, professionalism, and incredible ability to put people at ease. Many people have mentioned this already, but it is so worth repeating what a kind, wonderful person and celebrant she is.

Throughout the entire planning process, Mary was an amazing source of advice and comfort. Often I would email her in a panic with last minute questions and worries, (with everything from bridesmaid freakouts to help with vows) and she always offered incredible support, guidance and reassurance. She helped us with the nuts-and-bolts aspects of getting married, by explaining how and where to obtain our marriage license, and gave us great, honest advice about other vendors she had worked with in the past.

She ultimately designed a beautiful, heartfelt ceremony that was unique and completely tailored to both of us. She incorporated all of our guests into the proceedings, allowing everyone to feel like an active participant in the day. It really felt like a celebration; of us, of our friends and families, and of the new life we would share together. Afterwards, we received so many compliments from our guests, who remarked that ours was by far the most loving, and romantic ceremony they had ever attended. Even my great-uncle, a retired minister, (and no stranger to weddings having seen and performed many over the years) came up later and told us that Mary’s was ”the best” ceremony he’d ever seen!

I can’t recommend her highly enough!! Mary, thank you so much for making our day so incredibly special.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR AN AMAZING, PERSONAL CEREMONY: We called other celebrants before Mary and heard, "here is my typical 20 minute ceremony" and "this is why other celebrants don't know what they're doing." etc. We did not want a negative person with a canned ceremony. When we called Mary the first question she asked was, "So, how did you two meet?" We were on the phone with her for an hour discussing our families, our relationship and what's important to us in a ceremony. We then met Mary for two hours at a coffeeshop and she listened intently to all our stories with such great interest - we laughed and cried together and when we left her, my fiance said to me, "Don't you feel like you were just hugged for two hours straight?" Mary sent us lots of readings and vows and worksheets with questions about us and our relationship which she used to create a very personal ceremony just for us. We emailed back and forth with Mary many times and she was always very quick to respond and open to any changes that we wanted. Everyone at our wedding said it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever been apart of and several people asked us how long we had known Mary, assuming that only someone we had known for years could have brought such a personal and beautiful energy to the wedding celebration. Mary has such a warm and embracing presence about her which is apparent in her voice, the way she carries herself, the way she listens and the obvious love she has for celebrating marriages. I can't imagine our wedding day without her . She set the tone for the entire day and was honestly our favorite part of the entire wedding day. I highly recommend her to any couple that wants a personal ceremony they will always remember.
