    HAVE MERCY...as your Officiant

    Rev. Mercy was amazing! She took the time to get to know my now husband and me on a personal level. She made our vows a true reflection of our quirky, strong love for each other. Along with adding romantic touches, Rev. Mercy mentioned God and faith for my husband and family. It was truly beautiful and we couldn't be more thankful our search led to Rev. Mercy!

    Book her!!!

    Mercy exceeded our expectations as an officiant and I’m so glad that we found her. Prior to our big day, we met over coffee to chat and get to know each other better. She has a calming presence and we immediately felt comfortable with her. She got to know our quirks, our dreams and our philosophies, and she beautifully articulated the essence of mine and my partners relationship throughout the ceremony. She really tailored everything to us—we were able to include important rituals, and she recommended passages to be read (English and Spanish). It was important to us that our ceremony was bilingual, and Mercy’s Spanish is on point! The transitions between the two languages was smooth and everything felt so natural and personal. She also received rave reviews from my guests. On more than a few occasions guests came up to me to ask “Who was that!? Wow! She was so good!!!” She was just awesome, and she deserved every compliment! You should definitely go with her!!!!

    Hi Niki,

    Thanks so much for such a beautiful review! I loved working with you and I am so happy and humbled that you were so happy with the ceremony. I also really enjoyed being able to work with fellow teachers and activist Bruins! You both are an amazing couple with great values around education and social justice. I wish you all the best in your marriage.

    With love and gratitude,

    Mercy
