HAVE MERCY...as your Officiant
Rev. Mercy was amazing! She took the time to get to know my now husband and me on a personal level. She made our vows a true reflection of our quirky, strong love for each other. Along with adding romantic touches, Rev. Mercy mentioned God and faith for my husband and family. It was truly beautiful and we couldn't be more thankful our search led to Rev. Mercy!Sent on 12/29/2019
Rev. Mercy - Bilingual Wedding Officiant's reply:Hi Gabriella! Thank you for the lovely review! It was fun getting to know you and Richard and I am so honored that you are both happy with your ceremony. I wish you both the best life has to offer and a happy new year!

Mercy exceeded our expectations as an officiant and I’m so glad that we found her. Prior to our big day, we met over coffee to chat and get to know each other better. She has a calming presence and we immediately felt comfortable with her. She got to know our quirks, our dreams and our philosophies, and she beautifully articulated the essence of mine and my partners relationship throughout the ceremony. She really tailored everything to us—we were able to include important rituals, and she recommended passages to be read (English and Spanish). It was important to us that our ceremony was bilingual, and Mercy’s Spanish is on point! The transitions between the two languages was smooth and everything felt so natural and personal. She also received rave reviews from my guests. On more than a few occasions guests came up to me to ask “Who was that!? Wow! She was so good!!!” She was just awesome, and she deserved every compliment! You should definitely go with her!!!!Sent on 12/05/2019

Our wedding day was beyond Perfect!
Rev Mercy was absolutely amazing and our ceremony couldn’t have been more perfect. We live in AZ and had to do our interview over the phone. Rev Mercy was not only professional but also very fun & understanding on what we were wanting for our wedding. She was able to do the service in English and Spanish (Key points) for our family that way everyone was thought of. She did amazing putting both our personalities into the ceremony and we are very happy and grateful with how it all turned out. Highly recommend!Sent on 01/04/2020

Reverend Mercy delivered the wedding ceremony of our dreams. It was everything we hoped for in a ceremony and she helped prepare us for that moment with the rehearsal and with meeting her and emailing her. From the moment we met her we knew she was the officiant for us. We signed up for a spiritual cpu sowing session and she helped us discuss some big topics prior to our wedding which wasn’t really wonderful as my partner and I shared some of our excitement and concern. P Not only is she interfaith and respectful of all religions but we were grateful that she was inclusive of all types of ceremonies and couples. She helped us feel comfortable and helped us make the script for the ceremony perfect. When we sought how to incorporate the right rituals for our ceremony she recommended the lasso ceremony which ended up being perfect and a way to include our family. She was very communicative and helped us feel at ease. Thank you Reverend Mercy. Our day was so special and you helped the ceremony be the highlight of the day as we wanted! The awesome reception was a bonus!!Sent on 07/24/2019

Rev Mercy was so nice and kind. We got together with her to know each other so she can write a beautiful speech for us during the wedding. Everything was great without a hitch. I 100% recommend anyone to have her as your Rev. My wife’s and my family both loved everything of the ceremony and we couldn’t be happier with how great everything turned out. She also translated for my side of the family in Spanish so she didn’t leave anyone out during the ceremony.Sent on 08/04/2019

A wonderful experience
Choosing our officiant was one of the last tasks we completed, just because we wanted to make sure we found the right person. When we found Mercy’s profile, we knew she was the one to help make our ceremony perfect. She was very quick to respond to any of our questions and help us understand the process. Once we finally met with Mercy, we realized that she makes each and every one of her ceremonies unique and true to each couple. She took the time to get to know us and understand our story. The end product was amazing. We laughed, we cried, we knew that she did everything possible to find the right words to make our day special. The added fact that she was able to incorporate our Catholic traditions to then ceremony was a huge bonus.
All in all, it was an enormous pleasure to have Mercy at our wedding. She has a passion for this, and it’s clearly noticeable in her work.Sent on 06/07/2019
Rev. Mercy - Bilingual Wedding Officiant's reply:Hi Luis! Thank you so much for such a beautiful and generous review and for the lovely photo! I can tell that's exactly the moment I was about to pronounce you and Nathale husband and wife. It truly was an honor to be part of your wedding day. I wish you both a beautiful life together. With love and gratitude, Rev. Mercy
Rosalina Castillo · Married on 02/17/2019
Rev Mercy exceeded all expectations. After the wedding so many of the guests complemented the ceremony! I was so impressed by amount of time she spent getting to know us when we met so that she could write something for us, including paying homage to specific loved ones who have past. She is a kind and special soul who performs these ceremonies with love and attention to detail. We were also grateful that she could perform the ceremony in Spanish. She is wonderful, and one of my couple friends has already hired her for their wedding.Sent on 02/25/2019
Rev. Mercy - Bilingual Wedding Officiant's reply:Thank you so much, Rosalina! It was such an honor to perform your ceremony. Your wedding was so romantic. When you and Rene spontaneously started dancing after your kiss, my heart melted. It was so beautiful. I wish you both all the best. May you have a beautiful life together with lots of love and music.

excellent, personalized and meaningful ceremony
We couldn't be happier that we chose Rev Mercedes. She worked with us to make a meaningful ceremony that had many personal touches. She is an excellent public speaker. She can evoke a wide-range of emotions, including humor that are so important for a meaningful ceremony. She did a bilingual English and Spanish ceremony for us that had traditional and contemporary pieces. We were editing the ceremony script right up until the last minute and she was forgiving and patient with us. We recommend her very highly. -Kathryn & AlexSent on 06/20/2019

Mercy is wonderful
Mercy did an amazing job as our officiant. We are incredibly happy we had her perform our wedding. She started communication with us via email a month or so before the wedding and, once the day got closer, It was very easy to set up a time to talk with her over Skype. She was a pleasure to communicate with, and she was full of great ideas that added to our ceremony.Sent on 11/13/2018
We had a very small beach wedding in Malibu. She performed a beautiful ceremony for us, and even with the sea’s wind, my family was able to hear her!
After the ceremony, she was very friendly to our family and waited around with them for all of the photos to be taken.
Mercy is a very kind, warm, and lovey person. I couldn’t imagine any other person performing our ceremony as well as she has.
Rev. Mercy - Bilingual Wedding Officiant's reply:Hi Scott! Thank you so much for your lovely review! It was such a pleasure to work with you and Tim and I am so happy that you are both happy with your ceremony. It was also great to meet your family and enjoy that beautiful sunset while braving the wind gusts! Please give my love to Tim and your family. May you have a beautiful life together and feel free to keep me posted on your updates!

Unforgetable!...Wedding of the year!!
She went above and beyond our expectations. Our catholic symbolic wedding has been the talk of the year with our friends and family. Actually, the security officer also took the time to compliment our wedding and mentioned that of all weddings he's been ours also got him a bit emotional. There was laughter, tears and lots of love radiating the hall. Our guests thought she was our mutual friend because it just seemed so personal. She is not there to only do business with you but to really share this special moment and make it unforgettable for everyone. Mercy takes the time to meet you and learn your love story so she can then surprise you with a beautiful ceremony. I don't see myself getting married again because I just married my soulmate, but I'd choose her again a million times again. She definitely holds a special place in our hearts.Sent on 01/01/2019

Where do I even begin? Rev. Mercedes Ibarra was everything I could have hoped for! She took the time to get to know our life story and wrote the most beautiful vow renewal ceremony for us! She captured our love and shared it with our family and friends. She was genuine and sincere. She made us feel as if it was a close family friend performing our ceremony. After the ceremony, she kindly went out and got to meet my family while we were taking pictures. It was beautiful!!! If you want an unforgettable experience, pick Rev. Mercedes Ibarra!!!! You will ABSOLUTELY love her!!!!!Sent on 08/22/2018

Amazing working with Rev Mercy!
We couldn’t have picked a better person to marry us! Rev Mercy was excellent. We loved that she was very professional and organized. But most importantly, I think we liked most was that she listened to what we wanted. Wedding day she delivered a beautiful ceremony. We highly recommend her! Plus she speaks Spanish. It was wonderful because my entire family was able to enjoy the wedding. You won’t be able to find a better bilingual officiate than Rev Mercy!Sent on 06/09/2019

Lisa · Married on 06/08/2018
After our first meeting, we knew that we wanted Rev. Mercy to marry us. She gave off this aura that we were in good hands and could trust her with this sacred task. It honestly felt like she was an old friend and we were catching her up on our love story. As a couple in our early 30s who have known each other since middle school, we knew we wanted a ceremony that reflected our journey to “I do”. Rev. Mercy wrote and captured exactly that. An added bonus of being able to have Rev. Mercy perform your ceremony is that she is also bilingual. My now Husband’s side of the family speaks English but prefers Spanish and Rev. Mercy was able to weave English and Spanish fluidly without anyone feeling lost.Sent on 08/21/2018
From our initial meeting to the final draft of the ceremony, she helped us feel calm and confident that the ceremony would be perfect. Any help we needed on vows or questions we had she was always there. Look no further, Rev. Mercy is it!
Rev. Mercy - Bilingual Wedding Officiant's reply:Lisa, thank you so much for such a beautiful review. As I've said before, it was an honor to work with you and Hector.

Rev. Mercy was an absolute angel. She made our wedding day that much sweeter and went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding ceremony went as smooth as possible. I managed to plan my wedding in 5 months, and I feel so lucky to have found such a helpful and professional wedding officiant, who is bilingual and met all my needs. She speaks both English and Spanish and is very fluent and eloquent in both languages. Thank You Rev. Mercy!Sent on 07/17/2018

Rochelle · Married on 11/12/2017
We are forever grateful and thankful to have found Rev. Mercy!! Her presence, energy and professionalism made us feel so comfortable and confident right from the start! We waited til about a month before the wedding to start searching for an officiant and met with Mercy at a nearby cafe for a cup of coffee. She really wanted to get to know who we were as a couple and spent a couple hours with us. We really appreciated her time and genuine interest in making our ceremony uniquely ours. We wanted to have a bilingual ceremony but weren’t sure how to go about it. Mercy was a huge help and had great ideas of how to marry the two languages and keep our guests engaged and captivated. In addition I had some ideas for poems and vows and she beautifully incorporated them into the ceremony. I wish I could post a video on here for other couples to see how magical everything was. Working with Mercy was so smooth and flawless. It was so nice to not have to stress over additional details and be able to feel 100% confident that the ceremony would be perfect. It’s now been a few months and we’ve had several guests share with us that our ceremony was the best they’ve ever witnessed! We’re beyond touched and truly have Rev. Mercy to thank for her attentiveness, dedication and passion.Sent on 01/30/2018
