Carol was instrumental in the success of our wedding ceremony. She graciously performed our ceremony at her home and assisted us through the process of selecting the type of vows we wanted. She communicated frequently and answered any questions that we had in a very timely manner.

We would highly recommend using Carol's services!

Absolutely excellent! Carol J. Merletti is fabulous! My fianc� was working in eight cities throughout the US & one of them happened to be Boston. We're huge Boston Red Sox fans, so our thought was "let's get married 9-09-09 in Boston"!

Initially we were going to get married at Faneuil Hall because it�s a historical landmark & the last location of the day for my fianc�. Then Carol mentioned she was going to be at Fenway Park marrying two other couples. Suddenly we thought �should we? Can we�? �Yeah, let�s do it�! We had a timing constraint, however everything worked out beautifully & we met Carol at the Boston Red Sox game on 9-09-09, she married us at the 7th inning stretch! The Red Sox won! The whole evening was brilliant!

Since we are �out of towners� Carol helped in every way possible, whatever it was she was there. She stayed in touch with us before during & after our ceremony. She is flexible, endearing & warm & that was just via emails & phone conversations. Of course when we met her we fell head over heels & so grateful that I happened to find her on the internet. She was not recommended to us, it was just sheer perfect luck!

Carol was a fantastic officiant for our wedding! Her first concern throughout the process was to ensure that the ceremony was performed exactly the way we wanted it. She helped us prepare beautiful vows and went above and beyond in many areas. Carol came to the ceremony with our vows preprinted for us to read, a keepsake copy of the ceremony, and a beautiful substitute certificate for us to take with us on the honeymoon before we received the original. She is thoughtful, considerate, and diligent in every aspect of her service. Thank you so much, Carol!

Carol was a pleasure to work with. She was professional, accommodating, and gave us great ideas and suggestions for developing the perfect vows for our wedding ceremony. Carol also was easy to communicate with and this was especially important since we had to coordinate everything long distance. The ceremony turned out beautifully and we can't thank Carol enough for her services. We can tell that she not only enjoys what she does, but it gives her great satisfaction to join two people in the union of marriage. I would highly recommend Carol to anyone. Thank you for everything Carol!!!

We loved working with Carol. She was the officiant at our wedding and was one of the reasons it went so well. She supplied us with vows, allowed us to change in any way those vows and even create our own. Carol offered us the secular wedding of our dreams!

Carol was wonderful to work with. She always responded within a day via e-mail or phone to questions we had. Worked with us to help develop a ceremony that was both unique and personal to both of us. She didn't get remotely fazed when weather nearly completely ruined our rehearsal the day before, but remained calm and walked us through the ceremony and ease and made the rest of our wedding party feel confident about the event. On the day itself she did a terrific job and helped make our day stress-free and special. We would be happy to recommend her to anyone getting married.

Carol was just perfect and this is no exaggeration.We were so pleased with her, she made us all so very comfortable with her warmth and very personable attitude. Our wedding was viewed via Skype by my parents, friends and relatives and every one exclaimed of how extremely impressed they all were with how she conducted the ceremony. They spoke of her ability to make every one feel comfortable and a part of the ceremony, and at the same time, to maintain the solemness of the occasion. We would recommend her to anyone who wants their day to be an extra special one. Thanks again Carol.(Wayne and Nicole)

Carol did such a great job at our friend's wedding we were compelled to book her for ours. She was very accessible and helpful throughout the planning process, as well as extremely reasonably priced. She was kind, enthusiastic and really made us feel as though she were thrilled to be a part of our day. We chose to write our own ceremony and Carol provided us with plenty of material to chose from. She was absolutely delightful from start to finish and I highly recommend her to any couple planning a wedding!

I highly recommend this officiant. We contacted her very close to the actual wedding date which she was able to accommodate on short notice. She was accessible by email and phone, and had many recommendations at the ready. She met with us in person at the wedding site prior to the ceremony to troubleshoot potential location and flow issues. She was very positive, personable, knowledgeable, and flexible, which is ideal on a day that can be filled with anxiety and stress.

Carol was a fantastic officiant. She was helpful and had many suggestions and examples of different types of ceremonies. She was more than willing to customize our ceremony in any way that we wanted and was always available when we had questions. I would highly recommend Carol for any wedding she was great.

Carol is very professional and at the same time a very kind hearted. She was very flexible to make an appointment with. The ceremony was perfect and her choice of words were precise and showed us that she had put a lot thought into it. I recommend Carol as the officiant to everyone.

I selected Carol due to her fabulous web site and I could not have been more thrilled. There was so much detail and effort put into the site. Hopefully a couple only get married once and the process is a foreign experience but Carol outlined the process on the web in spectcular fashion. When I spoke to her it was even better. She put us both at ease from the start of calling her to engage her services until the suggestion she made after the ceremony, which was 'take a couple minutes now because the rest of the day is going to be really crazy'. It was the best suggestion anyone gave us that day!

Carol was wonderful. She e-mailed back the same day that we contacted her, and immediately agreed to officiate at our wedding, even though it was only a month and a half's notice. We talked to her on the phone for a consultation, and she was super-friendly and helpful. She even recommended that we not do a rehearsal with her so that we would save the $50 meeting fee, because our wedding was so small (only eight guests). When we changed the time of our ceremony, she had no problem with it.

She sent us an outline of suggested vows as well as readings, and we were able to personalize the whole thing exactly as we wished. Two days before our wedding, she checked in to confirm with us.

On our wedding day, she arrived at the site early, said hello to all our family members, and went over details with us. She was extremely flexible as to the format of the wedding and where the three of us would stand, and did a beautiful job officiating--both serious and approachable. At the end she gave us a beautiful version of our marriage certificate, suitable for framing.

We highly recommend Carol. She was friendly and professional, and made our wedding perfectly intimate and personalized.

I booked Carol after viewing her website. She seemed to be a very family oriented person that just had you in mind. I was so right. I never felt 2nd to anyone, she sat with us on the phone going over every detail to make sure it was "Our Day". I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone. You will be sure to get something perfect.
