When Mary Jo met with my fiancée and me, to get to know us as a couple, she saw the Ecclesiastes 3:1 (A Time for Everything) framed scripture verse on the wall hanging in our home. After asking us what that meant to us, she designed a beautiful and unforgettable experience for our Wedding Day around that verse while incorporating a garden theme to capture the essence of the verse and how it reflects on us as two people joining our lives together. She presented a “Bird and Butterfly” flower seed blessing. Guests were given a packet of seeds as they arrived. During the ceremony, she asked our guests to offer a blessing for us, as well as leave us a forever written message on the back of the packets! She orchestrated a warm and moving service that captured who we are and our values and beliefs both individually and as a couple. We think of her loving details all the time and have such gratitude for her. She created and gave us the Perfect wedding day experience!Sent on 05/19/2019

A ceremony people are still talking about!
Mary Jo helped us Mark the Moment at our wedding in Westminster in October of 2018, and we could not have asked for anyone better. Having seen a few other milestone ceremonies MJ had done, we knew she was the perfect fit. We wanted someone non-denominational, who would help us create a ceremony that was perfectly US, and that is exactly what MJ did. She went back and forth with us, learning our story, and our preferences. She helped us piece together components we liked, and was patient with us when we changed our mind approximately 1,000 times. When I received the written ceremony in my inbox, I was immediately in tears, and knew we had come up with something perfect. All of our guests agreed. Every single person came up to us and said how perfect our ceremony was, and that they cried more than at their own wedding. Even our DJ said during the reception he cried three times, and that it was simply amazing. Mary Jo was a joy to work with, and even though she faced some unanticipated complications, she went above and beyond to officiate our wedding. If you want a deeply meaningful, personalized ceremony for an incredible price, look no further than Marking the Moment. I would recommend MJ a million times over.Sent on 03/15/2019
