    My wife and i originally met Marian when she married my brother and his wife 4 years ago. She did such a great job we asked her to be our officiant.

    Marian just performed our ceremony over the weekend. It was perfect. Marian is an absolute professional. She guided us through the ceremony outline, readings, and provided many great recommendations and ideas along the way. Highly recommended.

    We got married on 8/18/2018 and Rev. Marian Hale officiated our wedding. It was a great experience from the first meeting, to vows creation to actual ceremony. Everything was very professional and well done. Marian personalized some of her speech which made the whole ceremony more special and intimate. We were really happy how everything went and I fully recommend Marian's Services.

    Rev. Hale was the perfect choice to serve as our wedding officiant. From our very first meeting we could see that she has a real passion for what she does and that she prides herself on helping couples put together a meaningful, personalized, and beautiful ceremony. Rev. Hale responded quickly to all e-mails, was patient with out last-minute revisions, etc. Her performance as officiant was flawless. She arrived early to go over logistics with ceremony participants and other vendors. She directed us through a very uplifting and emotional ceremony that was just perfect and something that we and our guests will never forget. We give Rev. Hale our highest recommendation!

    I cannot say enough how absolutely amazing Marian was to work with!!! The ceremony was just beautiful - so many guests came up to us to compliment us on how special and touching our ceremony was. I definitely couldn't keep from crying during the ceremony, despite my best efforts ;). She is such a pro, and had so many great suggestions for our ceremony that we would never have come up with on our own. We were really able to personalize our ceremony and make it unique and special to us. When we started planning, we contemplated getting a friend to marry us, and we are so glad we didn't do that! The ceremony was one of the best parts of our whole wedding experience, and Marian really made it so meaningful for us! On top of being amazing on the day, Marian was so quick to respond to emails and she made it so easy for us to meet up with her in advance to go through our plans. I very highly recommend Marian to anyone and everyone! Thank you again!! :)

    Marian beautifully officiated our ceremony. We got to meet her well in advance of our wedding and feel that she got to us know us and was able to eloquently depict our relationship and create an extremely special and unique ceremony for us. She was spirited and enthusiastic, our family loved the ceremony!

    We found Reverend Marian through our venue's list of preferred vendors. We met with Marian and felt such a good vibe from her and loved the fact that she performs every type of wedding you can think of- for her, the most important thing is the love between the couple. She sent us a great draft of the ceremony and was receptive to our tweaks and feedback. The ceremony turned out absolutely beautiful. It didn't feel as though this was someone we had found on a list and met at Starbucks! It was such a heartfelt ceremony; I don't think there was a dry eye in the house! After the ceremony, we had so many people come up to us to rave about how great it was! A truly personal and heartfelt experience.

    It was such a positive experience working with Marian. She was very flexible to work with and she arrived with ample amount of time before our ceremony to make sure everything was all set. My fiance and I had a quick wedding to include a family member that was sick. Marian planned a beautiful ceremony in a short time frame. She jumped on the opportunity to help us. During the ceremony itself, she was very lively and made everyone feel comfortable even though we did not have a reception the night before. I would highly recommend her!

    If you want a beautiful, unforgettable ceremony, that your guest will still be talking about after your wedding, go with Marian! Before meeting Marian, we were worried how personal our ceremony would feel with an officiant we didn't know, but after our first meeting with Marian, we both knew she was going to be absolutely brilliant! Our first meeting was only about an hour long, and we walked out of there feeling like we'd known her for years. She gave us a few different script outlines and suggested readings to help us build our perfect ceremony. She was quick to respond to any emails and offered us help and suggestions when we asked. She really made our ceremony so personal to us and had our guests laughing and crying, which was perfect. Thank you so much Marian for making our day so special!

    Marian Hale is a rockstar. Plain and simple. She was so amazing to work with. From the moment we contacted her to the moment she pronounced us married, she was incredible. Her responsiveness is TOP NOTCH, you will never be wondering when you're going to hear from her. She helped us plan our ceremony beautifully, and gave us the idea of a wine box ceremony, which fit us perfectly. I can't say enough wonderful things about her. Marian thank you so so much - you made our day incredible! :)

    Reverend Marian Hale did a phenomenal job at our wedding. We were very pleased right from our first introductory meeting when she asked us personal questions about how we met, etc so that she could get to know us better. Leading up to the wedding, she kept in frequent communication about the program to make sure it represented our vision. At the wedding itself, she did a lovely job, and managed to keep the ceremony light and enjoyable for everyone. She also handled some difficult name pronunciations very well. We had a great experience with Marian and would recommend her to anybody..

    Upon meeting Rev. Marian we kind of had the feeling that she was going to be our officiant. As we sat and spoke with her, we got a very good feel for who she is and what she does and how she does it. Rev. Marian was on time, responsive with emails and did a great job of making sure that we felt important and special on our wedding day. We were extremely happy with her quality of service, she has the quality to convey a very emotional and special ceremony which is what one looks for. Overall, Rev. Marian is a very unique individual and you cannot go wrong with picking her as your officiant. she will do her best to make sure you are happy on your day. We just want to thank her for making our special day unique.

    Marian was marvellous and made our wedding perfect. We came from overseas for our elopement wedding in Chicago. Marian made the whole process smooth, giving advice on obtaining our licence, working with us to develop a perfect ceremony for our needs, and then on the day making us feel very relaxed so we could enjoy our very special day. We are so happy that we chose Marian for our wedding.

    If my wife and I could give a higher rating, we would. Reverand Marian was absolutely amazing from beginning to end. From the first conversation we had on the phone, my wife and I knew we made a great decision on choosing Marian. She followed up with us every few weeks to make sure things were going well. She gave us multiple outlines of ceremonies to get an idea of what we wanted. Her smile is contagious, her personality brightens up the room and her words carry will carry with people through out their life. With the 135 people we had at our ceremony, not one had a dry eye in the venue and that was not because of us but because of words that were spoken by our reverend. Thank you again for everything and I hope to continue to keep in touch!!!!

    If you are looking for a genuine, compassionate, awesome individual to be a part of your wedding, Marian is the way to go! She's very easy to work with and to communicate with and she's just a great person. In fact, we liked her so much that we wouldn't hesitate to call her a friend. We planned our big day in just a short 11 days and Marian was super flexible and we even met a few days before our wedding and talked for a few hours over coffee. She's wonderful! Stop your searching and contact Marian! She's a true gem!

    It was such a pleasure to work with Marian. We found her on Wedding Wire and met with her early on in the process. As an interfaith couple, we didn't know exactly what we wanted but knew that we wanted a little piece of each of our religions in the ceremony. Marian provided us with a lot of sample scripts which we used to pick and choose pieces of each to make our own unique ceremony. She was very responsive and helpful while writing the script and gave us a lovely type up of the ceremony at the end. I couldn't recommend her enough- she truly made our day so special. All of our guests gushed at how beautiful the ceremony was.

    She was amazing! Couldn't have made it any easier on us with preparation and writing of the script. She was very professional and personal as well. We got married on the lakefront in Chicago in November, so she's one brave soul to meet our crazy butts out there. Lol. I would most definitely recommend her to anyone!

    I booked Rev. Marian through an Elope to Chicago package for our early August 2018 wedding. She performed a truly lovely non-denominational ceremony for our intimate wedding. From the moment we booked Rev. Marian, it was obvious just how much she cares about her role in your wedding day! We loved working with Rev. Marian because of her professionalism, but also her willingness to allow us to customize our ceremony to make it truly what we wanted. She also provided many suggestions that enhanced the ceremony, making it unique, while still traditional. Rev. Marian is a very experienced officiant and it shines through in all that she does. We were grateful to have her as part of our special day and recommend her without any reservation!

    Marian officiated our ceremony on 10/22/16, and I can't say enough about how great she was. From the beginning when we first met her she made setting up the ceremony very easy. She made the ceremony itself feel very intimate and special. She went out of her way to purchase a terrarium for a unity candle ceremony(so the wind wouldn't blow out) that we were hoping to have outside if the weather permitted. I can not recommend her enough for anyone's future ceremony or events.

    Reverend Marian performed our intimate wedding ceremony recently at the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool in Lincoln Park. We couldn't have been happier. We came in from out of town so there were many details to tend to. Our communication with Marian prior to our arrival was easy and stress free. She is very sweet and sincere and made our day more special that it already was. We would highly recommend her. Thank you Reverend Marian! All the best.

    Reverend Marian crafted and performed a beautiful interfaith ceremony for us. We planned our wedding from out of state, and Marian was very responsive and easy to work with via phone or email. In fact, the first time we met her in person was shortly before the ceremony, and Marian delivered an incredibly heartfelt and personal ceremony. The ceremony was exactly what we were looking for- it was the perfect blend of sweet and sentimental that reflected who we are as a couple. At the reception, during dinner, my husband and I went around to greet all of our guests and just about everyone commented on how much they truly loved the ceremony. We would recommend Rev. Marian to anyone!

    Marian was our perfect fit. From the minute we met she was warm and loving to us (a lesbian couple). This is not just a job for her. Marian loves what she does and truly lives the moment with you. She made our ceremony so very special and beautiful...exactly how we had envisioned it to be. With high praise I recommend her for anyone wanting a warm and loving intimate wedding ceremony.
