About Mary Johnson, Humanist Celebrant

Named New Hampshire's 2015 #1 Wedding Officiant: Each marriage is a unique commitment between two unique people, and your wedding should reflect your personal values and style. I design one-of-a-kind, nonreligious ceremonies, using my skills as an attentive listener, professional writer, and experienced event planner and public speaker.

My goal is to delight you by listening so carefully to you that your wedding carries exactly the tone and message you want, whether serious or more light-hearted, romantic or low-key. I meet with each couple several times before the wedding so that together we can craft a ceremony that's perfect for you. During the process, we get to know each other well, so that you'll feel that a friend, not just an anonymous official, stands beside you as you take your vows.

Because your ceremony will be unique -- and because I firmly believe that no wedding should be boring -- your celebration will continue to inspire you and your family and friends throughout the coming weeks, months, and years of your marriage.

I've orchestrated events, including weddings, vows ceremonies, memorial services, and other special events for over four decades, from New Mexico to New Hampshire and across the ocean to Italy. I'm also happy to celebrate same-sex weddings. Though I once offered multiple packages including elopements and an abbreviated process, I've found that what I enjoy most is working with couples rather intimately, so I now offer only the deluxe package, which includes several pre-wedding meetings, the rehearsal, the wedding, a bound copy of your ceremony, and an optional post-wedding meeting, for $800 (plus travel expenses for weddings located more than 20 miles from Nashua, NH).

To talk more about how we can plan a beautiful ceremony just for you, email me at mary@maryjohnson.co.

    Best officiant ever

    Our fusion wedding was a little over a month ago, and our guests are still talking about how beautiful our wedding ceremony was. Mary took the time to get to know who we are as individuals and as a couple, and our vision for the wedding. She listened to what we ww said and created a ceremony that incorporated elements of the American, Indian and Iranian cultures. She flowed from one culture to the next seamlessly and explained each component so everyone understood what was happening. Mary is so talented and is a beautiful person, inside and out. She lead the ceremony confidently, is a fantastic writer (you should also read her book "An Unquenchable Thirst"), and is a warm and genuine person. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Mary and we highly recommend her!

    Mary was not only an incredible addition to our wedding day and wedding planning but truly one of the most amazing people my now husband and I have ever met. She took the time to really get to know us and make sure our ceremony was going to be perfect for us. We always looked forward to our meetings with Mary and are so sad they are over! We cannot imagine our day any other way than with Mary and are so happy we had the pleasure of getting to know her. Mary is really something special!

    Mary did an absolute amazing job as our officiant. Every one of our guests commented how beautiful, funny, and meaningful our ceremony was. She put a tremendous amount of work to really personalize the ceremony to fit us. I could not have imagined a more perfect wedding ceremony.

    Carolyn, I did so love working with you and Jason, and incorporating some of your work and your personalities into the ceremony. Your vows moved me tremendously, as I know they moved your guests as well. Thanks!
