Since we live in Boston our first “meeting” with Paula was via Facetime and we instantly knew that she would be the person to officiate our wedding. She is professional, genuine and personable. We were able to modify and blend a few of the ceremonies that she often uses to create our own customized ceremony and then Paula helped put the finishing touches on it. She is quick to respond to emails and is always available to help answer questions or address concerns. On the day of the wedding she was well prepared and helped put us both at ease so that we could enjoy the ceremony. Thanks Paula!

Rev. Paula Taylor was our officiant and she was great! She was low maintenance and professional during the planning process, yet was on top of every detail. She was very accommodating and helped us personalize our ceremony. We would highly recommend Paula to any couple for their big day!

Paula Taylor did an absolutely wonderful job as our wedding officiant. On a big day like this you'll want someone with experience to help keep everything on track; Paula was exactly that for us. Her expert guidance made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process - friends asked me after the ceremony if we'd known her for years. She was calm, cool, collected throughout the ceremony and helped us both maintain our pre-wedding jitters in the moments leading up to our walk down the aisle. She had a wide array of ceremonies and vows for us to choose from; we ended up mixing our two favorite ceremonies together which was a big hit with us and our guests. Her delivery, poise and projection during the ceremony was top-notch. We couldn't have asked for better!

Paula was everything we could have asked for in an officiant and more! She was very responsive throughout the planning process, provided us with extremely heartfelt and well written scripts to choose from for the ceremony, and was flexible to let us change a few parts and insert our own vows. On the day of, she arrived early to walk us through all the steps involved in the ceremony and everything went seamlessly, even though we didn't have a rehearsal. Most memorably she was calm and collected and helped ease our nerves before and during the ceremony. The ceremony was also well-paced and felt very personal. We were near the beach, and the sound of the waves was loud, but Paula spoke loudly enough for everyone to hear. In sum, she made the process easy and the ceremony seamless, and was enthusiastic, kind and went above and beyond throughout.

Paula was great to work with! She is very experienced and that made us feel much more calm and comfortable with the ceremony - we knew right away that she was on top of all the details and that we basically just needed to follow her lead. She sent us a lot of reading and ceremonies - we simply highlighted the parts that we liked most from each one and Paula put them together for a ceremony we really loved. She was also very flexible about meeting us in person when we were visiting Newport since we live in Boston.
On the day of the ceremony, Paula ran everything expertly. She made sure everyone knew where and when they were going, helped us stand in the right places, and her delivery and poise were outstanding despite strong, gusty winds. Lovely ceremony and we highly recommend Paula!

Paula did a wonderful job with our ceremony! We were so moved by the ceremony she designed for us. She took the time to get to know us and understand us as a couple. She really made sure that everything that went into the ceremony fit into our vision and reflected what we both valued. We met with her once, and all our other communication was through phone and email. She's very easy to talk to, not to mention, a lot of fun! She's very sweet, kind, open-minded, thoughtful – basically all the qualities we were looking for in an officiant. She's also really responsive, and there were times when I received emails at 3:00 am! :)

My husband and I were lucky enough to have Rev. Robin McDonald renew our vows at Crystal Lake Golf Club this May. We have been married for just over a year and a half, my husband is in the military and our first wedding was very spur of the moment, we are currently living in Guam and loving our beautiful life together! I gave Robin a call and right from the start she was sweet and thankful for my husbands service, she also thanked me for being a military wife! She was so nice, I couldn't resist asking her to meet. Robin was very helpful and pleasant, she allowed us to choose our own vows and make them as short or long as we wanted. We were very happy with this. We visioned our wedding ceremony being short and sweet, and it was! I cannot thank Robin enough for her amazing job, we are truly thankful and blessed she was part of our special day! :)

We LOOOOVE Paula! She is amazing! She married me and my husband in April and the wedding was absolutely perfect. We wanted a fun ceremony with lots of laughter and smiles and Paula didn't disappoint. She let us basically tell her the order of things and she put in her own flair. She told our story and captured our personalities. She was really a pleasure to work with. We met with her twice, first to ask our big questions and set the date and then second to review all the details. She even came to the rehearsal (not sure if this is common but it calmed my nerves!). I would recommend Paula to anyone getting married. She will help you enjoy the whole process!

Reverend Paula Taylor was the officiant for our big day. We were impressed with the fact that she took the time to meet with us in order to tailor our ceremony just the way we wanted it. Paula was kind, thoughtful, very responsive and helpful throughout the process. With her assistance, we created a ceremony that reflected our love for each other which was very special. We were extremely happy that we chose Paula, as she made the ceremony amazingly special and memorable. We highly recommend Reverend Taylor to anyone getting married. She was awesome!

Choosing Rev. Paula Taylor for our officiant was one of the best decisions we made for our big day. She took the time to meet with us and get to know us in order to make our ceremony really about us. We were able to pick and choose and create a ceremony that reflected who we are as a couple. Paula was extremely responsive and very helpful throughout the process. We are very happy with our decision and are grateful that she was able to perform our ceremony for us.

We had the luck to have Rev.Robin MacDonald as our officiant. There are not enough words to describe all she did for me and my wife. We had no idea what we were doing and Rev Robin not only officiated our wedding she helped plan the rehearsal, pick the vows, and set up the procession. She calmed us down when we were freaking out, which was allot lol. She is a kind and caring person who radiates happiness. As a bonus they never blinked an eye when we called with only a month's notice to officiate a gay wedding. I highly strongly recommend you use this company. You will be so happy you did I promise!!!

Excellent! Loved that they provided different sample ceremonies to help with planning things out and then didn't blink an eye when I took parts of several of them and made it my own. Reverend Robin did a wonderful job. Thanks.

Paula is such a sweetheart! My husband and I knew from the first time that we met her, that we wanted her to marry us. Her kind and caring nature made me feel at ease before and during the wedding ceremony...(which was not an easy task) All of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and how perfectly it was delivered by Paula. We would highly recommend her to anyone getting married!! Just absolutely loved her!

We found Rev. Paula Taylor online and reached out to her for an initial meeting. She responded immediately in a friendly and personable way. Our first meeting was a meet and greet to be sure we clicked with each other and would feel comfortable with having Paula as our officiant. Hands down, we knew right away through her positive vibe and great energy that she would marry us. Paula took the time to send us sample vows, she met us for a rehearsal run, carefully and patiently reviewed the wedding day with us, and performed an amazing ceremony on 8/15. Her attention to detail (down to carrying tissues for an emotional bride and paper towels for a sweaty groom) she impressed us and our guests. We highly recommend Paula for future wedding ceremonies!
