    Meaningful experience!

    When Mary Jo met with my fiancée and me, to get to know us as a couple, she saw the Ecclesiastes 3:1 (A Time for Everything) framed scripture verse on the wall hanging in our home. After asking us what that meant to us, she designed a beautiful and unforgettable experience for our Wedding Day around that verse while incorporating a garden theme to capture the essence of the verse and how it reflects on us as two people joining our lives together. She presented a “Bird and Butterfly” flower seed blessing. Guests were given a packet of seeds as they arrived. During the ceremony, she asked our guests to offer a blessing for us, as well as leave us a forever written message on the back of the packets! She orchestrated a warm and moving service that captured who we are and our values and beliefs both individually and as a couple. We think of her loving details all the time and have such gratitude for her. She created and gave us the Perfect wedding day experience!

    Great Officiant

    Mary Jo was an amazing officiant and made our wedding ceremony special. She helped us along the way with decisions and made them not seem so overwhelming.

    A ceremony people are still talking about!

    Mary Jo helped us Mark the Moment at our wedding in Westminster in October of 2018, and we could not have asked for anyone better. Having seen a few other milestone ceremonies MJ had done, we knew she was the perfect fit. We wanted someone non-denominational, who would help us create a ceremony that was perfectly US, and that is exactly what MJ did. She went back and forth with us, learning our story, and our preferences. She helped us piece together components we liked, and was patient with us when we changed our mind approximately 1,000 times. When I received the written ceremony in my inbox, I was immediately in tears, and knew we had come up with something perfect. All of our guests agreed. Every single person came up to us and said how perfect our ceremony was, and that they cried more than at their own wedding. Even our DJ said during the reception he cried three times, and that it was simply amazing. Mary Jo was a joy to work with, and even though she faced some unanticipated complications, she went above and beyond to officiate our wedding. If you want a deeply meaningful, personalized ceremony for an incredible price, look no further than Marking the Moment. I would recommend MJ a million times over.

    Mary Jo was a perfect fit for us. She was very detailed. Quick to respond and helped me with any questions I had. It was a true partnership in building a wonderful ceremony that truly was ours. Hire her! You will not regret it.

    Mary Jo with Marking the Moment brought so much to our wedding experience with her graceful expertise, listening ear and steady support. She really did capture the beauty in this process through poetry, scriptures, traditions and stories that made our special day feel like a true reflection of us. It was amazing, she was wonderful, a true professional with a excellent knowledge and guidance. Thank you five stars!!!

    Mary Jo is amazing. From the first time we met to the end of our contract she was professional, kind, deeply caring about our wants and needs. She took the time to get to know my husband and I and listen to what we wanted and needed for our ceremony. She came through with more than I could have imagined. She made our special day unique, personal and included everyone of our guests ( small wedding 75 ppl.) We highly recommend her for your wedding or any special occasion you may have. Can't say enough good stuff about her.

    We had a wonderful experience with MaryJo. We had a small wedding, that was put together very quickly. She was able to meet with us on our schedule and give us some options for the ceremony. We then took that and customized to our liking and she was able to accommodate without issue. The wedding was terrific and she really made it calm and easy for us. We would recommended her highly.

    Mary Jo officiated our wedding in Keystone this year, and we couldn't be happier with our choice! Hers was a calming presence when things got hectic - as they always do - and throughout the ceremony she conveyed exactly the right combination of solemnity and humor.

    Working with her was amazing also. We met up several times before the wedding, during which we exchanged ideas. We then took some of her ideas, some we found online, and some we though up ourselves, and Mary Jo was happy to accommodate all of them. Many of our guests commented on what a lovely job Mary Jo did officiating our ceremony. We would recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant.

    New Year's Day Wedding

    We met with Mary Jo a couple of times prior to our wedding. The first time was a get to know us and to talk about our vision for the wedding. The second time we met was at our wedding site where Mary Jo helped us create the ideal layout for our wedding.
