Rev. Judith McLean was a joy to work with. She took the time to meet and get to know my husband and I before the wedding. Her custom wedding ceremony options made the process easy, fun, and special! She was knowledgeable with her experience and kept us on track the whole way through. One of my favorite little "extra" that she provided was having her husband take pictures during the ceremony and sharing them with us immediately following! I would definitely recommend Rev. McLean to anyone!

Reverend McLean was absolutely amazing to work with. She was very pleasant, sweet and attentive to our needs. She even let us design our entire ceremony so that it would be EXACTLY what we wanted, and it was turned out more than perfect :) We could not have asked for a better officiant for our wedding!

Through corrospondence, by phone, and electronic mail, we conversed numerous times....A month prior to our wedding we personally met Reverend Judith, over an awesome dinner..along with her husband, Mark...and my future wife, Sharon...She was an instant hit !!! From this point on...we knew we had made the most excellent choice possible...We seemed to have been friends for years....What an awesome person !!!

My husband and I were from VA, but got married in PA. We found Reverend McLean through our venue and we couldn't have been happier with her. She took the time to have a wonderful conference call to get to know us as a couple and for us to get to know here before we even booked her. When we did decide to book her, she was a pure joy to work with. I was often swamped with work and planning but she was wonderful to work with making it very easy for me to make decisions and not stress out. She has an extensive list of options for the ceremony so you can have a ceremony that fits you perfectly. She even worked with us to incorporate some of our church traditions even though were weren't getting married at a church. When it came time for the rehearsal she did a great job of corralling our very boisterous families and getting us ready for the wedding day. Day of we had a miscommunication with the DJ and she didn't have a mic for our outside ceremony. She handled it wonderful and was able to project her voice without yelling so everyone could hear her. I would highly recommend Reverend McLean. She is professional, personal and absolutely easy to work with.

Rev. McLean was wonderful to work with! We chose her for her professionalism and experience and we were surely not disappointed. Everyone thought our ceremony was thoughtful, spiritual, unique, and beautiful. We both really enjoyed how we had a number of options and readings to chose from to make the ceremony specifically ours. She also offers optional marriage counseling, which we didn't formally participate in - but we both really appreciated her insight in to the complexities and pitfalls on marriage as she got to know both of us prior to the ceremony. We both felt really comfortable with her - which is really important on such a stressful day. Overall, I would absolutely recommend Rev. McLean as an officiant.

We all had such a wonderful time at our wedding and it really feels like a great summer ending! I want to take the time to really thank you for the amazing job you did officiating our wedding. Jaden and Kyle really bonded over the inclusion of child/ pearl ceremony and everyone said that moment will be etched in their memory as being one of the ceremony highlights. It was so endearing and touching, the whole ceremony was! Thank you for being there to make our day so special.

We highly recommend Reverend McLean. She is the perfect combination of professionalism and caring. She made us feel totally at ease from the very first meeting and is a truly kind, thoughtful person with a great sense of humor. Also, she is an excellent public speaker. We chose to do two pre-marital counseling sessions with her and they were very helpful and informative. She designed a wonderful package of ceremony choices from which the couple has the opportunity to custom-craft their ceremony. The choices we made had our guests moved to tears and we heard over and over from our guests that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever seen. She and her husband fit in easily and comfortably with our friends and family. We were delighted to have them at our reception to celebrate with us. She did a wonderful job with the dinner blessing as well. When we returned from our honeymoon, we received a beautiful album of the pictures they had taken of our wedding. It was such a thoughtful thing to do and so welcome as we had no pictures from the photographer at that point. Overall, we would highly recommend Reverend McLean as an officiant and pre-marital counselor.
