    Eloped from out of state!

    Mary was great from beginning to end. She gives SO much information to help with planning the perfect ceremony no matter what your style. We had no idea how to construct our elopement ceremony and coming all the way from Illinois, I had nothing but confidence in her the entire time. Highly recommend her!

    Look no further, Mary is your gal!

    Let me tell you about Mary. We hired Mary to marry us in the Black Hills and have no regrets whatsoever. She is incredibly thorough and pours her heart and soul into being a wedding officiant. She married my husband and I for our elopement that, in the planning stages, was a little rocky with regard to the venue. Mary was very helpful and dedicated to helping us problem-solve. At the moment of truth, Mary delivered. She was on time, was dressed professionally, and had the pages of our wedding ceremony inside of a very nice book with our ceremony printed out and inserted into document protectors. She took the time to help us with a second witness and took the time to help us write the perfect ceremony that was so very special and unique to our own story. It was so beautiful and so special. We are so appreciative of her services. If you are looking for an officiant in the Black Hills, Mary will not disappoint! Thank you, dear Mary, for making our special day one that we will never forget!! Susan & Jerad Groon

    Professional, calm energy - we loved Mary!

    Our family gathered in the Black Hills to celebrate my birthday and we took this opportunity to renew our wedding vows after 25 years of marriage. Mary was excellent and we would highly recommend her. She communicates well, she cares about what she is doing, and she will make sure that every detail is covered. She has a calm, reassuring presence, that is effective in leading the ceremony with a gentle nature that allows her to go with the flow and generates a sense of well-being and peace. Prior to our ceremony, she spent time reading a book to our 3-year-old granddaughter (who was in charge, btw), and Mary went along with this also - she notices the small things that matter. We were quite happy with our ceremony and felt very blessed to have connected with Mary. It is a day we will remember and cherish for the rest of our lives, so we know it's an important decision. Mary knows this, too.

    Your Joyful Wedding's reply:

    I was honored to be part of your 25th anniversary vow renewal. It's a milestone that deserves celebrating. I loved seeing you surrounded by your kids and grandkids -- what a gift for them to witness your love and commitment. And your vows? Wow. Not a dry eye! Here's to another 50 years of loving each other so well.

    Oh, and your grand daughter did a great job of making sure everything went according to plan!! I think she can be "in charge" more often! : )
