Kindred Spirits Weddings was the perfect choice for our intimate ceremony. Mary made every part of putting together our ceremony, easy. She carefully worked in our requests for vows and for our children to be part of the ceremony. The end result was an amazing ceremony that is worth a life time of love.Sent on 08/26/2020

Compassionate and Professional
Changing our dream wedding to an elopement was definitely not something I would have ever anticipated before the pandemic hit. While I was excited to marry my college sweetheart of 8 years, it was difficult to postpone all festivities and not have any guests present at our wedding. Mary made us feel so supported with her easy communication, professional guidance throughout the process, and was generous enough to take pictures of my husband and I with her own camera. She helped us select a gorgeous location for our sunrise ceremony and was willing and eager to hike the mile and a half trail at 5:00 AM with us. We planned to have a friend lead our vow renewal ceremony next year with all the guests we originally anticipated coming to our wedding, but we're reconsidering that, as Mary was so wonderful to work with! I would highly recommend Mary!Sent on 07/31/2020

I had two weeks to plan my daughter’s wedding and I was stressed about finding an officiant, Mary saved the day! She was so wonderful to work with and she immediately put me at ease when I spoke to her. I can’t express enough how beautiful the ceremony was, the entire experience exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend Kindred Spirits.Sent on 09/08/2020

Lovely, intimate ceremony!
My wife and I found Mary pretty much by accident, and we're extremely glad that we did! We deeply appreciated her responsiveness and professionalism in helping us tailor our intimate wedding ceremony. On the big day, she did a wonderful job officiating. We highly recommend working with her!Sent on 08/30/2020

Amazing wedding experience
Mary was incredibly helpful and responsive in planning our elopement wedding. We wanted to do it outside and she was very flexible about times based on weather conditions. Her ceremony and vows are wonderfully crafted. We are also so grateful that Mary was willing to lend her photography skills for us as well, she took some amazing pictures that will be keepsakes for a lifetime.Sent on 06/26/2020

Thank you Mary!!
Mary was amazing! My husband and I just got married TODAY and Mary was such a delight to work with! She was easy going, calm and so so kind. She was the perfect person to marry us! At the very beginning she told us she wanted our wedding ceremony to be how WE wanted it to be. She made sure to explain and show us all of the different options of how the ceremony could go. She was super quick with responses while emailing back and forth before the wedding and answered absolutely any question that I had. Thank you so much Mary for making our wedding perfect for us! You are a rockstar!!Sent on 06/13/2020

Mary was amazing
mary was absolutely amazing to work with. Me and my wife were most nervous about the ceremony but she was very patient and helped us through everything we had questions about and made the whole speaking infront of tons of people very easy. She was quick with responding to any emails or phone calls within the same day. I couldn’t of imagined having anyone else be there to marry us we are so blessed to have found her.Sent on 09/16/2019

Couldn't ask for a better JP
Mary was great! She is everything you want in a JP and then some! She had a great selection of several different readings and was flexible with adjusting it to our specific needs. She was very thorough in reviewing everything that we needed to know and do for the ceremony. If you are looking for a great JP, your search is over!Sent on 09/14/2019

Amazing Last Minute Wedding
My fiancé and I are planning the big white wedding at the end of the month. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, we had to get married ahead of the big day. I called Mary, a local JP and she was instantly welcoming and calming .... to the bride to had to quickly find a new way to get married with less than two weeks! Mary was able to make an appointment with us in two days time, drive to our home and preform an amazing, brief and intimate ceremony in the comfort of our home.Sent on 06/07/2019
We even surprised two guests who just thought they were coming over for dinner and she didn’t miss a beat with joining right in on the fun.
Best of all she was efficient is sending the marriage license out the next business day so we can move forward with that (god awful) process! To top it all off she even recommended I go to social security first to make it that much easier!
10/10 service. Highly recommend

Our elopement was perfect!
I am so pleased we had Mary to officiate our marriage ceremony. She is professional, responsive and accommodating. I would highly recommend Mary. We eloped but may have another ceremony with family and friends at a later date. I will definitely be contacting Mary for that. Thank you so much for making our special day so wonderful.Sent on 03/25/2019

Mary was awesome! We emailed her last moment for an elopement service. She was so flexible and responsive. The ceremony itself was perfect ... just the two of us, very private and intimate. Exactly what we wanted. Thank you!!! We highly recommend!Sent on 11/16/2018

Mary - Wedding 10/10/2018
Mary was very helpful with us, especially being so close to the event date. We are a young and very stressed couple and needed something easy for the ceremony, and Mary kept things easy for us. She provided us a packet of different options and let us change things around if not provided. She is very fast at responding and was flexible with meeting times. She made our ceremony touching and sweet, and we thank her so much for being a part of our special day!Sent on 10/26/2018

Mary was an absolute lifesaver. I wasn't the bride-but the sister of the bride. We hit a few road bumps that day (rain when the ceremony was outdoors!) but Mary was calm, cool and collected and helped us make educated decisions about maybe moving the ceremony under the tent. She went above and beyond and, luckily, the clouds held long enough that we could do the ceremony outside. When it came time for the ceremony Mary had the perfect balance of holding the guests' attention and making sure all eyes were on the couple. She was super flexible beforehand in helping them craft a ceremony that fit who they are. We also have a big motley crew of a family and Mary was able to make the ceremony "click" with our many pieces.Sent on 08/13/2018
One thing that struck me: all throughout the time before the ceremony, while she we were all caught up in dealing with rain and a few other "not as planned" issues, she had her mind and focus on the couple at all times. She checked in with the bride and reassured her, she met with the groom to make sure everything was set.
If you're contemplating booking Mary for your wedding, do yourself a favor and just do it!

My husband and I were extremely happy with using Mary and Kindred Spirits as the JP for our wedding ceremony. We aren't part of a congregation, and didn't feel comfortable asking a family friend to become an "ordained minister for a day". We started reaching out to JPs in NH, and from the initial response we really felt comfortable using Kindred Spirits. We wanted something heartfelt, but individual (like I'm sure everyone does), and we were able to achieve the perfect balance with Mary's guidance. She was responsive, encouraging, and offered to meet with us via phone or in person as needed. I also liked that she only booked one wedding per day, so I didn't have to worry about anything on the day.Sent on 10/14/2018
The week before the wedding, my fiancé started changing vows and readings - Mary was fantastic and let him make adjustments right up until the morning of the wedding. She made us feel at ease so that we could really just concentrate on and enjoy each other during the ceremony. I would absolutely recommend her.

What a joy it was to work with Mary! My husband and I got married this past September and she made everything about this process easy and stress free. Not only does Mary care about her clients but she truly listens to what they would like in the ceremony. The way we go about deciding exactly what is said in the ceremony and how individualized it was, was amazing. Mary was very professional and was always on time! She really makes you feel at home and there is an ease about her that makes the ceremony magical. Our ceremony was so special because of her. We would recommend her to anyone that comes our way! She made our day wonderful!Sent on 09/20/2018

Mary is nothing short of incredible! She swooped in and saved us last second for a JP when ours fell through. She was very quick to respond, helped us put together the most beautiful ceremony we could ever have imagined and even stuck out the rain with us for a dry ceremony! I cannot recommend Mary enough to ANYONE looking for a JP. The professionalism, experience and ceremony you will get, is absolutely priceless. Thank you so so much, Mary. You made our wedding day so much more beautiful.Sent on 08/12/2018

Mary was awesome! As a "mature" couple, we found Mary to be extremely flexible and responsive to our style and needs. She was able to accommodate our very small, casual outdoor ceremony with an easy going but professional attitude. She was very timely with all correspondence, took away any stress related to the ceremony details, and was able to adapt to our last minute scheduling changes. We really enjoyed sharing this special day with Mary and our close friends and would strongly recommend her to officiate your ceremony.Sent on 07/23/2018

Mary was wonderful through everything!

It's hard to even put into words how wonderful working with Mary was. From day one she was so responsive, kind, and helpful. We met with her to figure out some details and she was on time and very professional. Even down to emailing her, she responded so fast we were completely amazed and blown away and especially grateful. We had made several changes to our ceremony over time and she was super accommodating with all of that as well. For our ceremony she arrived early and we even got a slightly early start which was very exciting. The ceremony itself was beautiful and she did such a great job. Overall I can't praise her kindness, patience, and work ethic enough. Seriously save yourself a headache and just pick Mary!!!Sent on 06/04/2018

Mary made us feel very comfortable and relaxed as soon as we met her. She offered to be contacted at any time to meet or all to ask questions. She gave us many options for the ceremony that we customized and selected. She made the license and contract process smooth. She made our day that much more special. Thank you, Mary. You were wonderful!Sent on 06/04/2018
