  • Mary Pugh is amazing! She just officiated my ceremony and she absolutely hit it out of the ballpark. She is soft and gentle when she needs to be, with a formidable, strong voice that demands attention and respect. She was also so lovely to talk to, easing my anxiety and tension with assurance that everything will go as planned. My brother happened to be late, and this threw the timing of things off slightly and yet Mary was so patient and understanding- a real gem! Do not hesitate to hire her as she’s a cut above the rest. A beautiful officiator who is impeccably organized, warm and generous with her time. I’m sure she get’s booked often so make sure you secure her asap.

  • We found Mary through Wedding wire, and had a great feeling after meeting with her. She was amazing at answering questions we had, and she was very professional. Our ceremony was very quick, which was perfect for us and our guests. She even gave us a copy of our official marriage vows she read from after the ceremony.

  • Mary did a great job. Our venue was changed very last minute and she came to the rescue. She made our day very special and calmed us down as we were very stressed with the venue change. We are very pleased with our choice and you would be happy hiring her

  • My fiance and I finally tied the knot on our 10 year anniversary last Friday. We were so lucky to have Mary there for our ceremony. We were able to meet with her to talk about what we wanted for the ceremony, and this gave us the opportunity to get to know her a bit, as we were nervous. Mary helped to calm our nerves, and our wedding day went smoothly (except for when our best man almost dropped my wedding ring into the ocean!) Mary is incredibly kind and caring. She is very outgoing and animated, and this adds to the overall ceremony. What is even more special is that Mary takes photos and videos of the ceremony and shares it with you via DropBox. I got some truly lovely photos from her shared with me the day after our wedding. Mary truly has a passion for her job, and I highly recommend her.

  • Mary is an incredibly caring and helpful officiant! She shared a treasure trove of materials/forms/scripts - everything from how to apply for a marriage license to how to change your last name. It turned out we decided to cancel our booking when a close family friend offered to officiate. Mary was so kind and understanding about the situation. She was happy for us that we would have a meaningful connection to our officiant. We are so grateful for all of the help Mary provided in a short time. It is clear she has her clients' best interests at heart!

    Hi Kathryn Thanks so much for the kind review.... Yes, sometimes plans change....and typically for the better. I wish you a fabulous wedding.... enjoy every second of it and Enjoy each Other for the reset of your lives. Mary

  • Mary officiated our wedding on Saturday and she was absolutely wonderful! Not only did she take the time to meet with us beforehand to talk about the ceremony, she was always very responsive to emails to answer any questions we had. She got to the ceremony site a bit early and took some photos of the bridal party outside doing photos and other candids of our guests which I soooo appreciated! Especially since we will need to wait 8 weeks for the professional photos to get to us. The ceremony went beautifully and even though there was a little hiccup with the string quartet, Mary addressed it gracefully and made light of the awkward situation, making everyone laugh. I can’t thank her enough for her professionalism, attention to detail, and grace. The photos of us at the end and with our rings were beautiful.

    What a great wedding!! So much fun... in spite of the crazy weather!! Thanks for the wonderful review... , The music was great! You are so sweet to share your thoughts with future brides and grooms! It really makes a difference!

  • Mary did such an amazing job on our ceremony! It was important to us that our wedding not just be about us, but the people around us, which is something I didn’t think we would achieve with the ceremony itself. However, Mary’s words conveyed that message perfectly. My family keeps telling me how touching and beautiful it was. Mary also provided a lot of information on different types of ceremonies, reading options, and general info on wedding planning which was super helpful. I truly couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out.

    What a wonderful wedding and a great family- you are surrounded by love! I am so happy you found the information I provide helpful. Couples are so busy,...and it is hard to plan without a lot of info to help out! Thanks again for the super review and say Hi to your family for me. Take wonderful care of each other!!!! :-)

  • Mary made our wedding ceremony so memorable! She provided us with wedding ceremony templates and readings, which allowed us to create our own special celebration. Mary's years of experience were extremely helpful in preparing us for what to expect on the big day. Mary was very professional and responsive. I would definitely recommend Mary Pugh as an officiant!

  • Mary officiated our wedding in Simsbury, CT recently, and was completely wonderful. In the planning stages, she allowed us the flexibility to craft a ceremony that we were comfortable with, and that reflected who my wife and I are as individuals, and as a couple. Mary’s ceremonies are eloquently written and beautifully arranged, and we ended up using a ceremony she had written with some minor personal customization. It turned out lovely. On our wedding day, Mary arrived to our venue early, making sure that everything was in order for our ceremony to run smoothly. She also took a still video of our ceremony, and provided her own Bluetooth sound system for us to use for our ceremony music. It also had a microphone attached for us to use during the ceremony. Just a few hours after our ceremony, Mary had already sent us the video and photos that she took, as well as a scanned copy of our completed marriage license. We are very pleased with the work that Mary did to make sure that our wed... Read more

  • 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.

  • Me and my husband were living out of the country when we contacted Mary. She was responsive and thorough and very helpful. She was also very accommodating. I’m from NJ, so it was an out of state wedding and she was there to make it the perfect beach wedding dream. The pictures were great and the video awesome! Such a great value for the price and a great ceremony! We definitely recommend Mary to help you on your special day!

    Thank for the terrific review!! I love taking care of my couples...responding to their special needs is fun! I am glad you are enjoying the photos and video....it is great to be able to share them right away with friends who could not come to the wedding!! Such a sweet couple...thank you for honoring me...as your officiant. Take wonderful care of each other...and enjoy your life together!
