Wedding Ceremonies by Patricia
I found Patricia on Wedding Wire website. We got married on May 4, 2013 in Ocean City Maryland. We had a Holy Union ceremony 17 years ago but since Maryland passed the gay marriage act we decided to get "legally" married on our 17 year anniversary.
Patricia was warm, professional and friendly from our first correspondence to our last wrap up meeting. She is an excellent officiant who I would recommend to anyone wanting a first class wedding officiant!
Patricia was awesome!! Ceremony flowed beautifully and she was wonderful!
WARNING!! My fiancé and I found Patricia on this very site and she gets two thumbs down from us both. Patricia made plans to meet us where our ceremony was to take place. To make it easier on her we traveled 2 hours to meet her within miles of her house at a bar/restaurant. Patricia never showed up!!!!! Everyone makes mistakes right. Well I called her. She answered and says I was just going to email you. Hello!!!! I just drove 2 hours and I'm here waiting on you at your choice location. She said I'm sorry to tell you but my niece is getting married that same day and I will be doing her wedding. The proper thing to do would have been to let us know before the drive. I would have still showed up and explained the situation in person. Just not showing up is unacceptable!!!!! Moral of the story please beware, she may have something come up 2 hours before your wedding. Maybe you will have an email from her when you get home. So glad I found out early how unreliable she is. Good luck to you all.......
Vendor response to review
I did arrange to meet with this couple to discuss possibly officiating their wedding. Just before we were to meet that evening I got caught up and was running just a little late and was going to call them when they called me. I misspoke when I said I was just going to email them, I did mean call them. I did say I would not be able to do their wedding as I had been asked to speak at my nieces wedding. I told them I work with three other officiants and I would like to still meet them and go over what they were looking for and connect them with one of the associates. They declined my offer. We had no contract nor had we concluded that I was going to officiate at their wedding.
Patricia was great! From our first meeting I knew we had made a good decision in choosing her to perform our ceremony. She was very responsive and changed her schedule around to accommodate our rehearsal. The day of the wedding, she arrived early and was able to fix an error that one of our other vendors had made. During the ceremony, I started crying and she passed me a small package of tissues. I was really impressed that she had them so accessible. She really made our day special and something that we will remember for the rest of our lives.
Patricia was amazing. She made us feel immediately at ease, was supportive, and brought an all-around calming & positive energy to our day.
She helped us create the ceremony of our dreams.
We would 100% recommend...
Patricia really made us comfortable before during and after the ceremony, and delivered an exceptional experience.
Patricia took a personal interest in making our big day as perfect as it could be. She took the extra time needed to meet and review plans, rehearse the ceremony and wrangle our unruly bridal party and groomsmen. We could not have wished for a better officiant.
John and I were very impressed with Rev. Patricia. She was very prompt in responding back to us, whether by telephone or email. This was a long-distance wedding with alot of the planning being done by email. She saw to it that our wedding ceremony was just how we wanted, down to my two daughters doing a reading during the ceremony. She was very flexible in meeting with us (she rescheduled a meeting time so we could have some beach time, AND she met with us on the Fourth of July, delaying a get-together with her own family!!!). She provided several examples of wedding ceremonies and allowed us to pick/create one that spoke to us and matched our style. We are so glad we found her. It was as if an angel dropped out of the sky to us!
A top officiant that always has the brides and grooms big day as her first priority. Very easy to work with . Highly recommended.
Patricia can give you the exact kind of ceremony you want.
Patricia is such a professional who will put you at ease when performing your wedding ceremony. Her ceremonies are created to each couples unique tastes. She's very organized and runs a very smooth rehearsal and ceremony. I have recommend her to many friends and associates.
