Wonderful officiant! We were married by Mary on the coldest day of the year 1/6/18! She was such a delight to work with; very through and she made the process and day so easy! I had no worries with Mary there. She did a wonderful job with our ceremony, including a hand ceremony and blessing of the rings. She made everything go smoothly. She even took so many pictures afterwards and a video of the ceremony. We didn't get a videographer, and when we got the video of our ceremony I was SO happy she recorded it! I would highly recommend Mary - definitely lives up to the name Ct's TOP JP! :) -- Jennifer L.
Thank you for the lovely review...you are both so sweet! I really appreciate it.
Your wedding was so beautiful! Take wonderful care of each other!
I am so happy you loved the video!
Mary was very friendly and easy to work with. She wanted to make sure our day went the way we wanted it! She had lots of references and examples to help us plan. She took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for. She walked us through the ceremony to make sure we were prepared. And she did a great job running the ceremony! She did a lovely dramatic reading, with her beautiful voice and careful prosody. She improvised around minor glitches, and made sure everything went smoothly.
What a delightful review from a delightful couple..... so easy to work with....and such a personal and unique approach to your wedding!! I could feel the joy surrounding you both....thanks again for a great review. I appreciate it so much. I KNOW you will take wonderful care of each other. :-)
Mary is the best. She's so nice. We are so happy that we could have Mary be our wedding officiant.
Mary is fabulous. She will make your day special.
Your wedding was great...it was fun working with you... Thanks for taking the time to write such a fabulous review!!
Take wonderful care of each other!!
Mary Pugh has completely exceeded our expectations as a justice of peace. She does not only marry you, she provides an extensive amount of material to use for your ceremony. Several scripts with various vow options, using traditional and/or personal. She even provides samples for popular ceremony music, as well as takes pictures for you! She is very fast to respond to questions, and the day after our wedding she already had uploaded pictures and videos for us. She provides you every piece of information and document you will need, and a complete rehearsal guide. With Mary Pugh as your officiant you can feel very confident and relieved because she is extremely organized and has the situational awareness to keep things perfect for you. She makes this as easy as possible for you.
We were blown away with everything she provided for us. She did a great job, has a great voice, and dressed professionally (you are also given many options on what she wears). Extremely happy we picked her for our wedding, she is a top choice.
Wow! Thanks for such a great review! I appreciate it so much.

We were married on 2/14/2018 by Mary Pugh in Darien, CT and could not be happier with Mary Pugh's professionalism and guidance while planning and conducting the ceremony together. She really made the very small event be Special! If you want a most meaningful, organized with details, and hassle–free wedding ceremony, you will be glad you called Mary Pugh, Justice of the Peace in Connecticut. She does weddings in a large part of Connecticut.

Mary was very friendly and welcoming. We were very happy to have her officiate our ceremony as she made it truly special. She is very accommodating and ensures that your day is truly one to remember.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review.
I really appreciate it. Your wedding was so lovely by the water... you looked like a princess!! Such a beautiful couple.
Thanks again...and take wonderful care of each other!!
My husband and I are so grateful to Mary for assisting us with our private vow ceremony this past weekend. We were thrilled to be able to be wed on our terms separate from the formal ceremony that we are having to please our families. She was very responsive and accommodating and even offered to postpone the ceremony by a few hours which gave her a tight schedule due to weather. Definitely worth every penny. Thanks so much Mary!
You are such a sweetheart to write me a review. I really appreciate it. Your wedding was so sweet.-- I am glad we missed that hard downpour of rain... it would have blown into the gazebo!!
Take wonderful care of each other and thank you again!
Thanks for helping us with our private ceremony Mary. She was very professional and answered promptly whenever we had a question throughout the process.
Thank you for your kind words. Such a special and sweet couple, You looked so happy!!
I am happy that was able to help you....and enjoy your family wedding soon!
Let me know if you need anything..... thanks again
Mary was fabulous! She did such a great job with directions of what to do the day of. She did a wonderful job with the ceremony. She printed out our ceremony/vows in a beautiful folder and even got us tons of pictures of all the decor and guests the night of the wedding! I was so happy for this because we got to see all the beautiful decor and not have to wait for our photographer. She really went above and beyond and is worth far more than every penny spent.
Amanda and Gregory,
Thank you for the wonderful and fast review!! Wow, what a sweet couple writing great reviews while enjoying MAUI!! Great and thoughtful couple.....
Reviews mean a lot in this business. That is often a life safer for couples...who otherwise, would have no idea who can help them have a great day.
I really appreciate it....and know your thoughtfulness will be a part of your lives together. Take Wonderful care of each other...I KNOW you will so beautiful inside and out!
Mary was our JP on Labor Day Weekend this year. I will tell you she really is CT's top Justice of the Peace. She knows her stuff! She sent us at least 50 wedding scripts that we could pick from and/or customize, which is what we did. She is such a warm and personable person- not only to the groom and I but to each guest at the wedding.
She even went around during cocktail hour after the ceremony, talking to the guests and taking their photos, which she then sent to us, which really meant a lot to us, because my husband and I were off with the professional photographer during cocktail hour so we didn't get to see all the fun stuff our guests were doing!
Mary was also extremely helpful in giving myself, the groom, and our bridal party tips on how to do things so that the ceremony went smoothly. I can't thank her enough for making our wedding so special!
Your wedding was so beautiful and I am so happy to have been a part of it.
Thank for the heartfelt and wonderful review..... I am having a happy day!
I love doing the special little things that help a couple have a great day. You had a great bridal party...they listen and did everything perfectly which is why your photos turned out so well
Thank you again...and take wonderful care of each other!!
Very helpful, offered plenty of great tips and was always very prompt on responding, would absolutely recommend!
Thanks so much Mark. I really appreciate your taking the time write a great review! Your wedding was so much fun...and so beautiful.
I enjoyed taking photos and the video. What a great day!
Thanks again....and take wonderful care of each other!
Mary was the best!!! She helped us every step of the way and was so responsive in any questions we had throughout the planning process. She also gave us so much information (tips for the ceremony, diagrams, ceremony script examples, name change kits etc.) that made the process so much easier! She helped make our ceremony unique and just the way we wanted. She also took such great pictures and a video of the ceremony and uploaded the NIGHT of so we were able to see some of the great shots right away. We strongly recommend her to everyone!
What a wonderful review....you make my heart sing! Truly, I appreciate it so much... so kind of you to take the time to help me with such a great review.
I love helping couple and doing those little things that help make a wedding special.

Hi Laurie and Danny,
Thank you for the fabulous review. It is so sweet of the two of you to take the time to write one. It means SO much to me...that is often how brides and grooms select their officiant!!
Glad to help you have "the best day ever"!!!!!! Take wonderful care of each other
She was absolutely wonderful as a wedding officiant. Exceedingly professional, punctual, and very helpful in all matters at the ceremony. I would highly recommend her for any type of wedding!
What a beautiful wedding.... I loved those golden chairs....like thrones! How fitting for such a special couple!!
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review....it is very appreciated!
I enjoyed meeting your parents and friends... Take wonderful care of each other!!
Mary's wedding ceremony was perfect! It was exactly what John and I were looking for! I would not change a thing, she thought of everything! Mary is the only one who videoed our ceremony to capture the memory forever! Stop looking for a JP, Mary Pugh is the one!
I LOVE IT!
Yes, couples should have fun reading all the great reviews...and I appreciate your enthusiastic endorsement!!
Your wedding was so special...and I am so happy you loved the photos and video I took. I do my best to make every wedding perfect..and it is so great to be acknowledged....you are such a sweet couple....take wonderful care of each other!!
Mary was so easy to work with! She was straight forward, helpful and had some great recommendations. One of her thoughts was to stop and have a "second kiss" at the first row before we processed out. This ended up being one of our favorite pictures of the whole day. We are so happy we worked with her!
Thanks Elizabeth!! Your wedding was so beautiful and I was honored to be a part of it!
You are so kind to take a moment to write a review...and such a nice one, too!
Take wonderful care of each other!!
Mary was excellent! I can't say enough about her. Professional yet friendly. She was the first to reply and even called. Mary is accommodating and wants to make your day as special as possible. Cost for Ceremony, Still Video and Pictures is very reasonable. She prepared a customized laser cut portfolio with the personalized vows and certificate printed in a lovely font on elegant blue parchment paper with a gold seal which she gives to you as a gift from her. She will wear robes, a suit or whatever is appropriate. She has several colored robes and can also wear a non-religious stole which also comes in many colors.She even brings music with her and personalizes your Ceremony. When she sends you (Drop Box) video and pics she includes a list for changing your name - info and forms. A daunting task made easier by Mary! She is a notary and offers her services to you ... and it is complimentary. My husband and I just moved here so didn't know where to get married. Mary suggested places and sent info. I have already recommended Mary to a few folks and will continue to do so. I can see why she does so many weddings!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review... it was lovely getting to know you both!! Your wedding was lovely- even with all the breeze on the water!!
Take wonderful care of each other!!
Mary Pugh was great since our first contact with her. She was one of the first Justices of the Peace to answer us back and she not only answered our email, but she called us to know more about what we wanted for our wedding - after that call we knew that her warm personality would be the best to celebrate our big day!
She was also very quick and thoughtful on answering emails and all of our doubts!
During the celebration it was clear to us that she was the best! Very warm person to everyone, very calm and also worried about broadcasting our wedding to our friends and family in Brazil - even them loved her!
We would highly recommend her!
Thanks so much for your wonderful review. Your wedding was so much fun. I am glad your family could view it!!
Take wonderful care of each other!!
Mary was SO great. She was helpful throughout the entire process. She adds so much to her services and makes them personal to you! She wrote such a beautiful script and found an even more gorgeous place for our very personal ceremony. She responded to all personal wants and demands and offered endless suggestions. She always responded to emails extremely efficiently and day of got our pictures and video to us within an hour. Being from the south and moving to the north she was so caring and it was like being with a longtime friend. She made us so comfortable and told us many stories to keep us at ease and make us laugh. I would recommend to anyone, big or small ceremony. She will do whatever you need and it is so obvious she cares about what she does! I absolutely loved it and was so glad she was part of our special day!
Thank you so much for your tremendous review. You are so sweet to take the time to submit it! I enjoyed getting to know you ...and your wedding was so special. I loved performing the wedding -- it was a lot of fun.
Take wonderful care of each other and friend me on facebook....want to see your adventures!!
We interviewed Mary because she performed bilingual ceremonies, and booked her immediately because she is an amazing spirit. After a few minutes of talking it felt like we had known each other for years. I've watched over our video multiple times since getting married 6 days ago, and am in awe of how wonderful it was. I've received a number of compliments about how personal the ceremony felt, and many guests were surprised that Mary was not a close friend or family member. I would highly recommend Mary for any wedding type because of her caring personality, attention to detail, and her professionalism!
Thank you so much for your kind words. Your wedding was so lovely and it was my honor to officiate. I love that historic church- what an awesome venue...and Latitude 41 was a super outdoor setting for you cocktail reception.
I was thrilled when a few of the Spanish speaking guest told me how shocked they were that I could speak Spanish so well (I always assume guests are just being sweet....) they assured me that it was great! YAY
Take wonderful care of each other...remember "michel thomas" for the parents to get busy before the grandchildren show up!!
Mary Pugh is the best JP ever. We could not have chosen a better one. Professionalism is her last name. We highly recommend her to anyone who's looking to have an unforgettable ceremony. You will be as happy as we are.
It was so lovely at the gazebo - you are such a beautiful couple. Thanks o much for your kind comments!!! Take wonderful care of each other!
