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.

We feel so lucky to have Maria part of our lives after officiating our wedding in July 2017. From our first Skype conversation, we knew Maria was the perfect person to help us building a warm, loving, personal, secular ceremony. Even though the ceremony was the most important part of our wedding day, we didn’t know where to begin and we collaborated with Maria to work from her expertise to build a ceremony that felt entirely our own and so authentic to who we are. On our wedding day, we found ourselves more emotional that we expected, and Maria was our rock and helped us be in the moment and get through the tears! Maria was so responsive and thoughtful throughout our planning process and was a great sounding board for other elements of our wedding. We had a fantastic check in with her a few months before our wedding where we went over every detail, and she prompted us to think of things we hadn’t considered and had expert guidance and experience to help us build a ceremony we were so thrilled with. She also led our rehearsal ceremony and our families and wedding party was blown away by her warmth, attention to detail, and positive energy. We could not have imagined our wedding day without Maria! Any couple will find themselves in such supportive and thoughtful hands in working with her. We worked with a lot of great “vendors” on our wedding day, but Maria was the best.
