Our wedding ceremony was incredible which was a direct result of Maria’s warmth, insight, professionalism and organization! Our guests raved about her composure, enthusiasm and delivery. It felt like she was a part of our family and she is now a friend for life!

Maria is AMAZING!!!! My husband is French so we wanted to make sure that we had a ceremony that included both cultures as much as possible. Maria was open minded and was able to turn our ideas into reality. It turned out to be our dream ceremony. Everyone was so impressed with the ease of the ceremony and the way she spoke. Even the French people were able to understand her because she spoke slow and clear! I would recommend her to anyone getting married. It will be one of the best decisions you make. She makes it so easy and fun! WE LOVE YOU MARIA!

Having Maria officiate our wedding was one of the best decisions we made! She was eager to get to know us as a couple and learn about our wants and needs leading up to the wedding. We worked with her to create a ceremony that was simple yet incredibly meaningful to us and our families. At our rehearsal, Maria set the tone for what would end up being an unbelievably touching ceremony. As the nervous bride-to-be, I was amazed by the calm she brought to me and my fiance. But the real accolades came from our family and friends; everyone (and i mean everyone!) commented on what a wonderful job Maria did setting a relaxed, intimate tone and encouraging everyone to be present in the moment. To say we are pleased with how everything turned out is an understatement. Thank you Maria for being such an important part of our special day.

Maria delivers such an amazing and unique experience as an officiant. We knew we had made the right decision in hiring Maria immediately after our first skype conversation, and you know its a good sign when every other vendor you have booked exclaims “Oh, you booked Maria! She is the absolute best! I love her!”. Her connection with the Maine wedding community made her a wealth of knowledge of vendors and logistics, but what makes Maria truly unique and the best officiant we could have ever imagined is the detail and effort she puts into creating a truly one-of-a-kind ceremony. We spent several months going back and forth personalizing every moment of our ceremony, and the end result was something that was so special that we have heard from guests routinely telling us it was the most incredible ceremony they had ever seen. As if that wasn’t enough, Maria also makes the rehearsal and ceremony itself completely relaxed and immersive. She has an excellent presence, and was this perfect combination of grounding and calming while also keeping you so present in the moment and the result is that I remember every single detail of our flawless ceremony. She kept all the pieces moving together like clockwork while my husband and I stood there, completely engrossed in the ceremony. I had always loved the idea of being married by an officiant who was a friend and had a sense of our history as a couple. I can truly say that by hiring Maria, we had that experience because it is impossible to make it down the aisle that day without feeling so close to her, and generating a lasting connection. Thank you so much Maria! You crushed it!

Maria took any and all stress out of our ceremony by handling the logistics and working with us to make sure it was EXACTLY what we wanted. She is so solid, kind, and beyond capable and saved the day several times with her emergency wedding kit in her car (fish line for the flower swag, she had it!). She was kind, communicative, and connected with our family and wedding party. Everyone felt comfortable asking her any questions they had, and she ensured our ceremony was perfect without any stress for anyone. Her voice and presence in front of guests is beyond amazing, and our guests commented ALL NIGHT about how incredible of a ceremony it was. She was recommended to us by two separate individuals and we are so glad we found her!! One phone call with a Maria and you’ll be psyched about your ceremony.

With so many choices in front of us my fiancé and I were overwhelmed (to say the least!) we had no idea what we wanted in a ceremony, but we certainly knew what we didn’t want. Right from the very first conversation we had with Maria we were at ease she was able to figure out by our “not” list what it was we wanted.

Life threw us some curve balls and we had to split our wedding up into two ceremonies— Maria was more than understanding & accommodating. We had a small “sweet & simple” ceremony last week and very much look forward to working with Maria to create our “super sweet” ceremony next May.
