Mary Beth officiated our wedding last month and the ceremony she made for us was absolutely one of the most meaningful highlights of our day. Hiring Mary Beth was one of the best decisions we made while planning our wedding. I can’t tell you how many people came up to us after the ceremony to ask how many years we had known Mary Beth since her warmth and loveliness made it seem like she was family! We met with Mary Beth twice (once in August and once in May) before she officiated our wedding this July and at both meetings she was just as warm and comforting as I hoped. She reassured us, helped us build our ideal ceremony, and got to know us as individuals and as a couple. She has the most gentle and welcoming energy and just makes you feel at ease the instant that you meet. She was very, very responsive throughout the whole process both by text and email which I really appreciated because I’m definitely a question-asker. She was super patient and reassuring and never for a second did I feel like I was inconveniencing her. She was happy to educate us on the customs we’re not always attentive to (who remembers the order of a traditional wedding processional?) and was so instrumental in helping us decide how to adapt our ceremony to make it as personal as possible. She has a beautiful ceremony with many variations already available and was very receptive to feedback, changes, moving things around, adding things in to make the ceremony feel exactly like us. At first we did not want to write our own vows and Mary Beth had many vow options to use (honestly I found it difficult to decide!) Eventually we chose to write our own vows which I’m so happy we did, and Mary Beth was so helpful and encouraging in this process which at first felt quite intimidating. My husband and I are not from the same religious background and since neither of us identify strongly with our religion, we didn’t want this to be a major part of our ceremony. I feel confident that Mary Beth could meet anyone’s preference in this regard quite gracefully. She just seems to have a knack for meeting people exactly where they are. I will admit I was a “nervous bride,” with regard to wanting things to go right and having there be no confusion, and Mary Beth was instrumental in my feeling as calm as possible, knowing that our ceremony would be beautiful and touching and with just the right amount of lightheartedness. She definitely helped keep us grounded that day, and her presence was reassuring in every way (she even asked us a question off-mic as the ceremony began that helped bring me back to the moment and laugh/breathe a little bit—walking down the aisle is amazing and intense and kind of feels like a dream. I’m so glad she helped us be more present.) I am happy to say there truly was not a dry eye in the house and it was so lovely to see Mary Beth obviously sharing in our emotion of the day. Thank you so much Mary Beth!!Sent on 08/03/2019

Rev. Mary Beth is a beautiful person inside & out. She humbly met me at a Panera Bread to recite passages and conduct the set up of my future ceremony. No doubt in my mind that the rehearsal will be just as elegant as the big day. She was very kind and accommodating with all my needs and questions.Sent on 01/20/2019
I look forward to meeting with her again!
