We cannot say enough positive things about Mary Coburn. She went above and beyond to create a beautiful, personalized ceremony for us. From meeting with her, to answering questions through email, and through the rehearsal and wedding, she was always a pleasure to work with. She got to know us through our meeting and questionnaire responses and created a ceremony that was unique to us. So many of our guests came up to us at our reception praising the lovely ceremony and the positive remarks have continued to this day. We would highly recommend Mary to everyone. We cannot thank her enough.

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.

Mary officiated my wedding in September of 2014. Every step of the way my husband I am were amazed by her attention to detail, as well as the care and effort she puts into her work. Our first meeting with Mary, and all other steps with her there after truly made us focus on our relationship, and the things we loved most about one another.

When our wedding day finally came, I could not have been happier with the results! Our ceremony was one of a kind. Mary listened to everything we had wanted, and most importantly what we did not want included! She tailored our ceremony uniquely to us, and worked collaboratively with me in helping me write vows. We are still getting compliments on our ceremony, as it was the most unique wedding many of our guests had been to. Mary told all of them our story, so they all felt more connected to us, and the journey we had been through.

I will never forget our ceremony, as it was truly special.

As a side note; after our wedding, both our siblings became engaged, and have chosen to use Mary to officiate their weddings!

I don't think I can say enough to justify how amazing Mary was for our wedding. She went above and beyond our expectations. We first met with her at a Starbucks to interview her for our wedding. My husband and I immediately fell in love and didn't even need to meet with anyone else. Mary was so warm, friendly, knowledgeable, and interesting. We could have talked to her for days. Aside from her personality, we loved the fact that she TRULY gets to know YOU. She doesn’t simply use a pre-scripted ceremony and input names. She takes the time to send you questionnaires to really get to know YOUR story and uses this to construct the ceremony. We chose to right our own vows, and Mary was great in helping us to get them just right! She took the time throughout the wedding planning process to check in and make sure all was going well and to make sure I was staying calm. The day of the wedding, she came up to the bridal suite to see me before the ceremony & remind me to breathe. I was almost sad to see my wedding day come and go because it meant no more meeting with Mary at Starbucks, and I had come to enjoy that. Now on to the ceremony, there are no words! It was absolutely beautiful! We received so many compliments from our guests: “That was the best ceremony I have ever heard! Your officiant was wonderful!" I even had people asking for her name and number. To this day, when people talk about our wedding, they refer to how amazing our officiant was. Mary has a way with words, a certain way she delivers the ceremony that really captures you, as she tells the story of the bride and groom. It was light & funny, as well as true & deep; it was PERFECT! Mary certainly delivered! I could go on forever, but will end by saying: if you’re looking for a unique, individualized ceremony that tells YOUR story, an officiant who is professional and willing to guide you, someone who will capture your audience and provide you with a stress-free experience…Mary is the one! Love her!

Let me start by saying that Mary is just plain amazing. From the first time meeting with her we immediately knew she was perfect, there is a certain calm about her and a connection that we really valued. Mary took the time to collect our thoughts and stories and compiled a thoughtful collaboration of our past and present love that shined throughout the ceremony. Not to put other ceremonies down, but I have never heard so many people talk about how great the ceremony at the wedding was and how refreshing it was to hear our entire story summed up so eloquently. Mary was amazing and has an ability to exude comfort and control and I cannot imagine my wedding day without her help. It was the best day of our lives and I'd recommend her to anyone.

If you're looking for a wedding officiant then stop everything you're doing and look no further than Mary Coburn. Mary is simply the best at what she does and brings heaps of professionalism, enthusiasm and love to every ceremony she officiates. She has an uncanny ability to take your love story and make it into a half-hour ceremony that will make your guests laugh and cry, while capturing the essence of the couple. My wife and I are so happy we had the privilege of having Mary marry us, and will always remember the ceremony as the highlight of the entire day. To sum it up, Mary's ceremonies transcend what people typically think of when they think of weddings. Any couple would be lucky to call Mary their officiant!

My husband and I are so thankful for everything Mary did for us! The process with her was so wonderful and very very meaningful. I have told many this before but I honestly mean it when I say we couldn't have gone with anyone else to marry us! We felt a connection with her from the beginning and knew how important this was to her as it was to us. That means more than any words in an review can ever truly say!

Everyone raved about the ceremony and how personal and beautiful it was. They also are still raving about Mary and how wonderful she is. I can't even begin to tell you how much everyone just loved her voice!! I know that is weird but it really made a difference how warm and open she was!

Because of Mary, we will have a ceremony to read and watch that we are so proud of. It was full of our spirit and for that we are forever grateful!

We found Mary through our wedding venue. We contacted several people but she was always the one to beat in our minds. Meeting Mary in person only solidified this! She was a gem to work with! Mary really took the time to get to know us individually and as a couple. She was genuinely interested in our story. Her attention to detail is very comforting. We had quite a bit of push back about not being married in a religious institution. Mary supported us and worked diligently to help us balance expectations. Her ceremony allowed some of my family members who are of a different faith to still be present but the ceremony still reflected our religious beliefs.

I also must say that as the bride, getting married without either of my parents was particularly scary for me. When we decided on a big wedding, my anixety went through the roof. I was still coping with my grief and just terrified that I would cry my way through the ceremony. Mary was aware of this from the beginning and about six months before the wedding she called me to discuss methods to help me be present in the moment, to feel my emotions without succumbing to the weight of them. IT WAS LIFE-CHANGING! I followed her advice and by the time the wedding day came I wasn't worried at all. Mary kept telling me I would be present in the moment and she was absolutely right. I can't imagine all officiants are able to do this but she did and I am so grateful to her for it!

Two months after our wedding people are still complimenting us on the ceremony. Everyone loves that they could see our faces and not our backs! They love that they learned our story. And they all say that it was the perfect length. Not too long and not too short. I am not surprised.. Mary is the best officiant any couple could ask for! I encourage you to check out her website to get a better idea of just how wonderful her ceremonies can be!
