Caring. Invested. Supportive. Thorough. Gracious. Intelligent. Good listener. Passionate... Are just a few words to say about Mary, but truly there are no words to fully describe what an amazing officiant and phenomenal person she is. Throughout our wedding process, Mary was the calming, kind, efficient professional that she is.
Having seen what Mary offers at my brother's wedding several years ago, it was a no-brainer for me to have Mary be part of our day. The biggest thing about her is that she truly takes the time to get to know you and your spouse, and your love story. She takes your conversations and questionnaire answers to weave together a beautifully written ceremony that absolutely captures the essence of your love and what brought you and your spouse together. She will completely captivate your guests with her eloquent, soothing voice as she shares your personalized ceremony.
The number one priority for us, was to remember why everyone was there.. to celebrate our marriage and the love that brought us together. So it was hugely important to me to have someone who gave us a unique ceremony that was not only special to us, but also offered insight to our love and even a little entertainment to our guests.
Mary completely exceeded our expectations, and I would, without a doubt in my mind, recommend her to anyone that wants an out-of-this-world ceremony! A lot of decisions have to get made during the wedding process and it could get overwhelming to say the least, but I promise Mary is a sure bet and you will not be disappointed!

Mary was fantastic. She was a pleasure to work with and she helped make our day perfect. Several friends and family members commented on how beautiful and personal the ceremony was and how great Mary was. They thought we had known Mary for years. They were so surprised learn that we had just met her a few months before the wedding.

Working with Mary was a true delight from start to finish. Not only is she charming and warm, but she is so well-spoken and knew exactly what type of ceremony would be the best fit for me and my husband. Mary was also so well organized and made the process extremely easy.My husband and I are both procrastinators (as is evident by how late I am writing this!), but Mary made sure to keep us on task in a friendly and helpful way. All of our friends and family raved about the ceremony and several people have asked us for her name and contact information. She is wonderful to work with and she made our ceremony the best part of our wedding. She is a lovely person with a true gift. Thank you so much Mary!

Having Mary as our officiant on our wedding day was the best decision we ever made. She made our ceremony very special and personnel. Our guest have been coming up to us ever since telling us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to in there lives and that Mary was amazing. She put a personnel touch into the ceremony that allowed for our guests to understand us better as a couple. She also was amazing with the rehearsal dinner and making sure every detail was in place for the wedding day. We cannot say enough good things about Mary. When we first met her, we knew she was going to marry us. She fills a room with such an amazing positive energy when she walks in. We cannot thank her enough for making our wedding day so special.

Where to begin!

We found Mary through The Knot website. After reading many reviews, we decided to contact her. My husband and I have no religious affiliation, so we would be relying mostly upon reviews to find our celebrant for our June 2014 wedding. Everyone said such incredible things about her in the reviews- so she would definitely be our first choice.

After speaking with her over the phone for the first time, we had no doubt in our minds that she was going to be the perfect person to marry us! As soon as we hung up the phone, my husband and I just looked at each other and smiled, because we knew we had found the perfect match for us!

Mary was genuinely interested in our story from the very beginning. She took so much time getting to know us, and the incredible journey that brought us to our special day.

Mary was much more than a celebrant for our wedding ceremony. She was our friend throughout the entire planning process. She was there with any wedding-related question we had. She supported and excited us each step of the way. (…even all the way through the ceremony-with much needed relaxation and breathing techniques to calm the nerves!!)

The ceremony reading was perfect. An absolutely flawless narrative of “us.” An enchanting love story. Our friends and family were utterly captivated, as were we. As Mary spoke, she effortlessly unfolded each page of our love story. She brought us and our friends and family to laughter, and tears of joy, as we became husband and wife.

After the ceremony, so many of our guests commented on the truly unique character of her readings, describing it as the best wedding ceremony they’ve heard. Mary has an amazing ability to illustrate a love story with her words. Finding Mary, and having her as a part of our Big Day was undeniably one of the best decisions we made!

Our wedding was probably the most perfect wedding that I have ever been to. It was set on a beautiful beach, in April. The weather was perfect, we could not have asked for better scenery, and the ceremony was so heartfelt and personal. We have Mary to thank for this! She did an amazing job telling our love story to the guests, and it was nice to relive all of our greatest moments (so far) as we took this very important step in our lives.
Mary really did her homework, when getting to know us. She asked us questions separately and together about our relationship, how we met, our anniversary, how we feel about each other etc. It was fun answering the questions, and reminded us of all the good times we have had, and why we feel what we feel for each other. She was super easy to talk to and gave us her opinions on things, but also listened to our opinions. We were quite clueless as to what we wanted, and her suggestions were very helpful. We were very happy that we took her advice and ideas for the ceremony.
Mary was so patient with us during the rehearsal, and I am very thankful for that! We probably would have driven anyone else crazy. It had been a long while since all of our family and friends had gotten together, with us living out of the state from them. So between all of the catching up with everyone, and the horseplay, she was super patient and instructed with kindness.
Our ceremony was really amazing!!! It was relaxed, personal, fun, and heartfelt. Since Mary had done her homework, she knew our love story just as well as we did, and shared it with our family and friends. I even cried, and I am not a crier. I have attended a lot of weddings (for work and as a guest) and this was by far the best ceremony that I seen. At the reception, we got numerous compliments on Mary's work. People were just raving about how personal it was, and how it was really about us. By the end of the wedding Mary felt like a part of my new family.

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
