I moonlight as the Reverend Corinne Mary, a non-denominationally ordained minister and New York State registered wedding officiant. As a comic book geek, sci-fi nerd, and general rock and roller, I tend to be the best match for an off-beat bride and her, his, or hir wedding party.
As a minister and a human, I am a bit witchy and spiritual, but not particularly religious. I was raised Roman Catholic with hints of Judaism. I have no real organizational affiliations aside from working at an esoteric occult shop in the East Village for a few years in my earlier college days and signing up for nearly every online ordination that would have me one rainy afternoon. Currently I'm most proud of my recent ordination with The Church of the Latter Day Dude but I started out as a legacy member of the Universal Life Church, an organization my father registered with in the 70s by mailing in a postcard found in the back pages of Rolling Stone magazine. Like most with my title I am a confident public speaker and became a legitimate New York State wedding officiant so I could legally perform weddings for friends. After the first few weddings, I was a smitten kitten and decided to to go semi-pro...this is actually a pretty amazing way to spend your time.
Being part of a couples marriage process is sacred to me. Working with couples to create a perfect ceremony creates an intimate dynamic; this involvement at such a precious stage of a relationship is a privilege I deeply respect. I am a huge fan of elopement (no really, let's talk about it) but also love writing customized sermons and working closely with the couples while crafting them. I dig a lot of hocus pocus and integrating sentimental and unique ritual inspirations. While being a card carrying "Reverend" started out as an irreverent accessory for my wallet, being a wedding officiant has become something I take quite seriously (especially when it's bizarre and most importantly when it's ridiculous. ;))

Absolutely perfect!! A Coney Island dream
Corinne officiated our wedding at Coney Island and we could not have had a more perfect ceremony. Beforehand she was really helpful and supportive when we were coming up with vows and how we wanted the ceremony to go. On the day she found the perfect spot on the pier and was so welcoming and energetic. She had written such a beautiful sermon for us which truly fit the mood we wanted. We also wanted to involve the kids in the ceremony and they loved her!! They can sometimes be a bit shy but she somehow managed to get them to really shine. Corinne was absolutely fantastic and we could not have asked for anyone better, we would highly recommend her. Thank you so much!!Sent on 04/13/2019

Corinne was awesome! The ceremony was perfect, she's wonderful, and it was a fabulous day overall. Our families enjoyed getting to know her. It was a pleasure working with her, and I can't wait to see her again when we renew our vows.Sent on 11/02/2016
