About Us

Your wedding ceremony marks the beginning of your marriage; give yours a brilliant start by contacting me today.

As your wedding officiant, I am deeply committed to providing you and your partner with the most eloquent expression of what gives your union cause to celebrate.

A sense of joy and happiness is what I take pride in bringing to your special day.  Your experience with me will be pleasant, stress free and easy.  I will treat you as if you are my first AND my hundredth couple – with great enthusiasm, professionalism and a little sparkle.

Upon our first meeting, be sure to bring your ideas and questions.  We will go over your vision of your ideal wedding and the details of how I can make your ceremony memorable and meaningful so that you and your guests will have an extraordinary experience.  By the end, any questions you have will be answered and you will have a clear idea of what your ceremony will be like. 

Besides wanting something extra special, couples hire me for a ceremony that is either

          * romantic, meaningful and enjoyable

          * spiritual but not religious

          * Interfaith, Cultural, Intercultural

          * Hindu Plus (Hindu plus Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim, etc., or Same Sex.)


A Little Bit About What Makes Me Different:

It is an honor and a blessing to preside over and witness the union of two souls.  More than a means to make a living, joining two people in the name of love is my Dharma – a personal calling to serve.  I am an ordained interfaith, non-denominational minister who doesn’t just study but actively participates in the world’s religions.  I don’t just talk the talk, I walk the walk.  It is not unusual to find me participating in services at a temple, synagogue, mosque, church, out in nature or in a yoga studio.  I am actively involved at the United Nations Working Group on Girls.  Together with my husband, Rev. Todd M. Engle, we founded Engle Heart.

For our wedding, we wanted our own personalized ceremony, incorporating some of our heritage, but also incorporating elements of what makes us unique as a couple. For that reason, we searched long and hard to find officiants who took the time to understand us as couple. We read countless reviews and met/interviewed 3 officiants before choosing Rev. Mary-Rose.

Rev. Mary-Rose is warm, personable, and truly took the time to get to know us during our initial two hour casual meeting. This was very important to us, as we didn't want a random person standing up in front of our friends and family, talking about how great of a couple we are. At our meeting, she asked us many detailed questions, took detailed notes, and made sure we had all of our needs met.

Once we committed to her, we collaborated on a unique ceremony from start to finish, including a unique rock ritual that we created together. Mary-Rose wrote the drafts and we edited and modified to our liking. We met with her a second time in person for almost two hours, and also skyped a third time, in addition to exchanging countless emails and phone calls; Rev. Mary-Rose was very responsive, professional, and treated us as friends; we never felt as if we were burdening her.

It is clear that Rev. Mary-Rose loves what she does and takes a great deal of pride in both the writing and performing of each ceremony. We especially appreciated her willingness to be flexible with what we specifically wanted; if we wanted to modify, add or delete her writing, or deviate from her plans, she smiled and welcomed our changes with open arms.

On the day of the wedding, Rev. Mary-Rose was early, organized, and comforting. Rev. Mary-Rose performed a ceremony that brought our friends and family to tears. Countless attendees told us this was the best ceremony they had ever gone to. They said the ceremony was truly "us".

We cannot thank her enough for choosing to marry us. We love Rev. Mary-Rose!
