About Marilyn

Marilyn served as a professional wedding officiant for ten years. As a result of theCovid-19 pandemic, she can no longer serve the couples she loves, but has found a way to assist all couples in love by offering her professionally written ceremonies.

Professional Ceremony Writing Services Offered

Since Marilyn can no longer officiate due to being among the vulnerable demographics of Covid-19, she can still write quality ceremonies for couples who opt for a family member or friend to officiate. Allowing Marilyn to write your custom ceremony, you can have the best of both worlds, the intimacy of a beloved family member or friend, and a professionally written ceremony. To be legal, your officiant must be ordained or otherwise qualified to perform a legal ceremony. Marilyn will assist you in the legalities of the event as part of the service.

Marilyn is also available to officiate remote ceremonies for those couples who'd like to explore this historic option.

Marilyn is simply amazing! She is one of the sweetest women I've ever met! As a bride I had my moments were I felt overwhelmed with planning or much too focused on the programs, table seating... Marilyn has a calming way of bringing you back to center and reminding you of the true meaning of a wedding. She offers genuine interest, support, and helpful advice. Like the time she encouraged me while writing my vows, "If you keep them simple and speak from the heart they will be perfect,"she reassured me. She returns your emails and answers all questions in an unbelievably timely fashion! As for the ceremony itself, we couldn't have asked for better! With her help we planned a ceremony that was personalized to meet our special needs or wants. It was everything we had hoped for and more! I highly recommend 'With this Kiss I Thee Wed' for your own wedding day!

Amazing Officant!

Marilyn did such a unique and inspiring wedding sermon for our special day. The sermon was 100% about my husband and myself and she let us use vows we liked and let us add in quotes and other wording which was perfect for our special day. She was extremely easy to work with and was always available to go over anything we had questions about. It was truly a pleasure to work with her and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a very personal sermon.
