“My husband and I were on the fence about having a professional officiant for our wedding ceremony – we figured we could just have a friend do it. However, we decided to just chat with Maria to take a look at all of our options. Long story short, we immediately decided to hire her and we have no regrets about it.
Maria really took the time to get to know both me and my partner, and she captured our life together in such a meaningful way. She also customized the ceremony based on our personal preferences, weaving in different traditions that were important to us. It resonated with the people at the wedding who were our closest friends, and also resonated with people we weren’t really that close with (family friends, distant cousins, etc). One of our not-so-close guests came up to us afterwards and said that after the ceremony he felt like he really knew us. And several other guests told us that the ceremony was the best they had ever attended.
If that wasn’t great enough, I feel like what I appreciated the most was that Maria completely eliminated any stress that we had around the ceremony. She guided us through the entire process, from putting together the ceremony, to running the rehearsal, to making sure everyone knew where they needed to be on our wedding day. Planning a wedding can be stressful – and Maria made this part of it SO easy. I cannot recommend her services highly enough!”
