the definition of a personalized wedding ceremony
We found Marry Unordinary after talking to half a dozen officiants and feeling disappointed either by how little customization they incorporated into their finalized "custom" wedding ceremonies, or finding awesome officiants that charge quadruple the amount we had allocated in our budget.
We live in New York, so our first meeting with Jill and Nikki was through a video call. The video feed was a little awkward, but we immediately clicked with the two of them. We're a laid back couple, so we valued their belief that "important events don't have to be so serious in order to be taken seriously." They did a great job of paying attention to what matters to the two of us, which helped me feel more comfortable with how a lot of their information gathering comes in the form of "shared" and "individual" questionnaires.
I'm thrilled I took the chance. Rather than being generic and impersonal, the questionnaires gave us a structured way to describe what we value about our relationship. The shared questions were varied enough that they covered all kinds of details we wouldn't have thought to bring up on our own. The individual questionnaires worked much in the same way, but gave us space to privately flesh out exactly how we feel about each other, without the pressure of getting the wording and the flow "just right." We both spent a lot of time to be as thorough as possible.
We opted not to see any of the drafts beforehand beyond the introduction and the vows she'd lead us through, so the ceremony was as much of a surprise to us as it was to our guests. I was blown away by how well Nikki picked up on not just our sentiments but also our personalities! She told our love story far better than either of us ever could, all while including exactly the right number of jokes, roasts, and puns. The ceremony was extremely heartfelt and sentimental, but it was never sappy. We had so many friends and family members ask us if she was a close friend because they could not fathom a "stranger" could capture our personalities and our partnership as perfectly as Nikki did. The audience burst out laughing with us a dozen times, and went "aww" just as many times as we wiped away happy tears.
If you hate cookie cutter ceremonies but feel like your budget isn't large enough to afford a custom one, reach out to Marry Unordinary! The value you get for the (honestly way too affordable) price cannot be beat.Sent on 03/03/2020
