  • I feel so blessed to have found Rev. Mariellen. The wedding ceremony she performed for my husband & I, on May 13, 2017, was absolutely beautiful. It was so warm, loving, unique, and sincere. And that was exactly what we were looking for. Practically, every one of our guest has told us that day, or days following, that it was the best ceremony that they ever saw. They loved the handfasting ceremony. It was so beautiful, emotional, and different. Many people thought that Rev. Mariellen was a family relative, because the ceremony was so personal and included many characteristics of my husband and I. They felt that she knew us so well, and I felt like she did too. Between the few phone calls we had with Rev. Mariellen and the wonderful questionnaire, she got a true feel of our relationship and was able to incorporate that into our ceremony. Rev. Mariellen was so sweet, always offering words of advice and comfort. She was also very professional and easy to work with. She made the whole proc... Read more

  • I recently was married this past Sunday, August 14th. Rev. Mariellen was absolutely AMAZING! We lost contact with an officiant we were planning on working with & contacted Rev. Mariellen 1 week before the wedding & she came through with no problem! Our vows, written by her, were absoluley beautiful. She also included our children into the ceremony as we literally "tied the knot!" We received so many compliments. You would think she has known us for years! I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for an officiant for a wedding! She went above & beyond to ensure our ceremony was exactly what we wanted! Thank you so much!!!!!!!

  • We are so blessed to have found Mariellen for our wedding. She is so sweet and loving, and we felt as though we had known her for years during our first conversation. My husband and I got married on the beach in Cape May, and Mariellen knew exactly what she was doing, bringing all of the necessary supplies (tables, mic, etc.), and ultimately tailoring our wedding to complete personalization. We adore you Mariellen- thank you!!! =)

  • As two women about to be married, we were designing a unique wedding celebration that reflected who we are and that would be a contribution to everyone attending. Mariellen was the perfect officiant to help us achieve this. She asked each of us to fill in a detailed questionnaire about ourselves, our story and what we were looking for on our special day. She was very open to what we asked for and masterfully wove our own words and requests into a beautiful ceremony. She is very warm, and was so willing to design the ceremony specifically for us. We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding ceremony - everyone present said it was so beautifully done. We would highly recommend Mariellen for any traditional or non-traditional ceremony.

  • I highly recommend Rev. Mariellen Smith. She is genuine and sincere about everything she does. She completely personalized our hand fasting ceremony and made it better than we had imagined. Her words will captivate your audience and deliver a truly heart felt ceremony. She was always readily available for us. Mariellen is very knowledgeable and can handle anything you're looking for. She combs through your ceremony making sure it's everything you've dreamed of and more.

  • This is actually one of my first reviews of anything ever online but I definitely felt compelled to as a result of my very positive experience. Mariellen performed an absolutely beautiful service for my wedding. She truly created a personalized speech and vows for us as well as brought a very peaceful energy to this day. We choose the handfasting ceremony, which was nice to have my maid of honor/mom actually tie the knot. The person that marries you can mean much more than many realize. At that exact moment it is so wonderful to have such a warm and genuine person standing their between you and your partner. I would highly recommend Mariellen, you will be very happy! I will definitely return to her for house and baby blessings!!!

  • My wife and I live in Colorado, however we were having our wedding ceremony and reception in the Lehigh Valley, PA area. We needed to find an officiant back in the area with somewhat short notice (a little over a month). I spoke with several officiants on the phone about their services, price, availability, and just to get a feel about who's who. Once I spoke with Mariellen on the phone I knew right then and there that I wanted her to officiate our wedding... she was so kind, detailed oriented, and willing to customize our wedding for us. And then i found out she resides in NJ... and she was still willing to go out of her way and travel to Pennsylvania just to do our wedding! How wonderful! Since we were working with her long distance most communication was either on the phone or through emails. She had us fill out questionnaires and then scripted a custom wedding ceremony for us based on what we wrote. When we arrived to Pennsylvania, she met with us the day before our ceremony to do ...

  • Rev. Mariellen Smith added such a warmth and personality to our small beach wedding. She took the time to get to know us on our schedule and used this information to write a personalized wedding that was really wonderful. She was sweet, patient and cared very much that our special day was exactly as we wanted it to be. She offered us choices for our ceremony and came up with beautiful ideas and customs that we could either embrace or choose to leave out. I would recommend Rev. Mariellen Smith for your NJ wedding, whether it is big or small. She will make your "Special Day" even more special.

  • From start to finish, Mariellen brought a sincere happiness for us and for what we were creating together! She guided us through the planning process, allowing us to add prayers and readings that were personally meaningful to us, and offering suggestions as necessary. She was willing to spend as much time as we needed in reviewing and refining the ceremony to be sure we were pleased. Mariellen was flexible in our choice of venue and helped us to envision how the ceremony would flow in that space. She conducted our wedding ceremony in such a loving way that everyone present felt not just welcomed but very much included in the celebration!
