  • Reverend Martin officiated our ceremony on August 27,2016 and we could not have asked for a better officiant. The ceremony was beautiful. He was always so responsive to all of my emails and questions. He was flexible, professional and fun. We are so happy that we found and chose him to perform our ceremony. We could not be any happier with all of his efforts to make our ceremony exactly what we wanted. Thanks again for such a beautiful ceremony.

  • Reverend Lavery was amazing, we had several meetings before the wedding to establish how we wanted the ceremony to flow. He was very professional and made the ceremony flow effortlessly. Would definitely recommend to anyone that is getting married.

  • Rev. Martin was an AMAZING choice for a wedding officiant, and we were so pleased to have the opportunity to work with him for our wedding. He was one of the most organized and thorough vendors that we've ever worked with, and conducted multiple Skype meetings with us before joining us in person for our rehearsal and, of course, for the wedding itself. Rev. Martin accommodated all of our requests and had many, many amazing suggestions for things to consider for our ceremony. Additionally, he provided us with a massive, customized document that contained numerous possible readings, poems, ceremony ideas (water ceremony, handfasting, etc.). With Rev. Martin's assistance, we went from "totally clueless" about what to do for our ceremony to having a ceremony in which my wife, myself, numerous attendees, and even Rev. Martin himself cried. I really and truly cannot recommend Rev. Martin enough... if you're lucky enough to contact him and find that he has your date available, book him!... Read more

    Hi Brian Larsen & Melanie. Thank you for the very kind words. Your ceremony was, without a doubt, one of the two or three most moving, emotional, love-filled ceremonies I have had the privilege of performing this year, or any year, for that matter. I have no doubt the world is, and will be, a much better place because of the deep and abiding love the two of you share for each other. Best wishes for your fabulous future, together forever!

  • Reverend Martin Lavery was the absolute best! I couldn't have imagined being married by anyone else. He was very quick to respond, sent updates as we proceeded to our BIG DAY and had very helpful advise and information to ensure everything went smoothly and what to do in order to achieve the best pictures! All of my guests were impressed with his services and professionalism. Thank you so much for making our day that much more amazing!!!!

  • Rev Martin was extremely responsive and thorough in our discussions regarding the ceremony, writing vows and most importantly, including our children in the ceremony. You won't find someone any more dedicated to the craft and the bride and groom.

  • We are both students at the University of Maryland, College Park. We found Rev Martin online and we felt that he did a wonderful job for us. We are more than glad to recommend him to others who are preparing for a wedding.

  • Reverend Martin was exactly what we needed. We have a mixed faith relationship in a many more mixed faith family. Having a ceremony that spoke specifically to us as a couple while still making our diverse families happy was a challenge we found daunting. Reverend Martin sent us a packet full of all of the bits and pieces of ceremonies and allowed us to pick and choose what we wanted, then he arranged them and put in all of the transitions. He was completely supportive of all of the changes we made, and was very responsive to all of my emails. On the big day he helped coordinate what was going on while I was sequestered away from my groom and guests. Could not have asked for more or better, he may be on the higher side of the price range but he is definitely willing to put in the work to earn it all.
