From the very first email with Maria I could tell we had found the perfect person to marry us! Maria is so nice and sweet and if you ever have any question about anything she always gets right back to you with an answer! We lived a little far from each other so we did FaceTime calls which were great!! She also has amazing ceremonies you can pick if you choose to do that, like we did! When it came to our vows Brandon and I wanted to write our own. Maria looked over each of ours gave us feedback and even helped make things flow better with our words AND put them on cards for us to read on the day of. When it came to wedding day Maria was nice and early and was checking in with me to make sure everything was going good. She also let us know when it was time to start! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience from a better person! Maria being our notary public was one of my very favorite parts of our day!!

Maria was such a pleasure to work with and made the ‘getting married’ process extremely easy and fun. She helped us customize a ceremony that complimented us as a couple with very personal touches. (She also took beautiful photos on our wedding day that she shared with us afterwards, which I thought was such a beautiful touch!) We had so many guests compliment our ceremony and officiant and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to be by our side on our special day.

Maria was amazing! My wife and I were planning a destination wedding and struggled with the idea of who would officiate the ceremony. At first we hoped to find a family member that could because we didn’t know anyone in Maine. That didn’t pan out and I was worried about picking a random person, because frankly why do I care to have a stranger front and center of one of the most important days of my life. We came across Maria’s website and instantly felt a connection. We set up a Skype “meeting”. Before our conversation was over we knew she was the person to marry us.

The ceremony was awesome. Maria worked with us to create the “script” of the ceremony and our vows. She offered samples of other weddings she has done to give us ideas and point us in the right direction. She made everything very easy. She even told us what we needed to do to obtain our marriage license in Maine.

Although our time with Maria was brief, I feel as though I have made a friend for life.

Maria was the perfect fit for my wedding. After the first 5 minutes of meeting with Maria my husband and I knew we wanted her to marry us. She was all things you would want in an officiant plus so much more. She was timely in all responses and interactive with us through out the whole process. We found Maria more than a year before our wedding and she remained in constant contact with us the whole time.

Maria made the process of writing our ceremony simple and fun. We didn’t want to write our own vows but we also did not want a traditional cookie cutter ceremony either. She took all of our wants and customized the perfect ceremony that fit our personalities. It was better than I could have imagined!

The best part about working with Maria is you can tell how much she loves what she does and how much she truly cares for her clients. I will always cherish our ceremony and I know that it would not have been the same without her.

On a side note, just one of the MANY things I loved about working with Maria is her belief in marriage equality.
