Maria was an absolute joy to work with. We worked with her for over a YEAR to create our ceremony. Throughout the process she was responsive, professional, and warm. She always made the effort to meet us while we were in Maine so that by the time she performed our ceremony we had become actual friends. She is full of helpful ideas and suggestions not only for the ceremony, but also for photographs, decoration, readings, etc. Her passion for her profession is evident in everything she does. She is culturally sensitive and willing to incorporate new things into her repertoire, and she is endlessly patient. After meeting her once we knew we had made the right choice in having her officiate our wedding, and after every subsequent meeting only reinforced our decision. On the day of the ceremony she brought a calming presence with her expertise and preparedness. She did a phenomenal job with our ceremony and we couldn't be more grateful to have found her.
