  • My husband and I were nervous about finding an officiant for our wedding--coming from different religious backgrounds and with our own unique senses of spirituality, we were worried that we would not find someone to conduct a ceremony that truly reflected our relationship and respected our backgrounds. However, our fears instantly subsided upon meeting Bill and Joanne. They approached the creation of our wedding ceremony with such warmth, openness and kindness, and truly guided us toward making thoughtful decisions that reflected our unique love and relationship. Bill officiated our wedding ceremony with grace, humor, and respect, and I really cannot imagine that anyone else could have done a better job. After the wedding, some guests told my husband and I that it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies they have ever attended. Maybe we're a little biased, but we agree :) Thank you Bill and Joanne for making our wedding ceremony so personal, heartfelt and memorable!

  • William and his wife JoAnne were so accommodating to our crazy schedules as well as truly interested in getting to know us to make our wedding ceremony truly unique! We could not have asked for a better or more knowledgeable officiant, they even put our ceremony and vowels into a hard cover book along with our certificate as a gift at our reception. We are so grateful that we found them and that they work so well together that they are interchangeable incase one or the other could not be there which make any couple feel a bit safer when there is already a backup plan in place. They are the best and we truly consider them our friends that we plan on meeting up with around our anniversary times to catch up.

  • While searching for an officiant for our wedding last June, we came upon Bill and Joanne's profile on WeddingWire. We decided to contact them based upon previous reviews of their services, and all of them were very accurate! Bill and Joanne went above and beyond to get to know us on a personal level, walked us through every aspect of creating our own version of our wedding ceremony in addition to helping us coordinate the ceremony (seating arrangements for the first two rows, lineup of bridesmaid and groomsmen, etc.) They added the personal touches to our ceremony that we wanted and delivered it in such an exceptional manner - we still receive compliments on how lovely Bill's ceremony was! We highly recommend Bill and Joanne's services to everyone and are very thankful for all they did to make our wedding ceremony such a success.

  • Rev. Mise and his wife did an amazing job helping us craft the perfect wedding ceremony. We truly appreciated how they took the time to get to know us as people and helped guide us on this journey. Through their expertise we created a genuinely unique and custom ceremony that allowed us to properly celebrate our marriage. They listened to our needs and desires and provided a beautiful and memorable ceremony. Many of our favorite moments of planning the wedding came from the activities provided by Mindful Ministry, and we are truly thankful to have had them as part of our special day! Thank you so much Bill and Joanne!

  • Bill & Joanne, Thank you for an unforgettable experience. If you are looking for a wedding officiant, look no further! Bill was fantastic. We were able to create the perfect ceremony that matched our needs. We desperately wanted to have an outdoor wedding but did not want to lose the religious aspect of our big day. Bill did a fantastic job including our faith and personalizing our ceremony. Our guests raved about our ceremony and our officiant. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you, Bill! -E&R

  • There would be No regrets!!! Mrs.Joanne is absolutely amazing. For us she was God sent!!! We received her husbands name off a vendors list ( the last name on there ) one week before our ceremony and he was unavailable and referred us to our ideal Officiant, his Wife. They both have a calming and loving spirit and excepted us and the love we share for one another. She will be part of The Sequel in December and the rest of our lives.... She has become family.... We Thank you and Love You Mrs. Joanne

  • Rev. Joanne Marshall-Mies was exactly what we needed. Although, it was an impromptu ceremony she maintained her very calm, open and kind demeanor throughout the entire process. You would think she would've felt pressured as well but she never showed any angst. There was a meditation exercise before we began which put us in a very calming centered space. She was amazing. Rev. Joanne Marshall-Mies is very detailed which was another plus for us. All deadlines were met and we were more than pleased! I can go on forever about this amazing woman, but you would have to experience her for yourself! She was the perfect fit and we feel like we've known her for years. KUDOS to her!!!! Thank you Rev. Joanne Marshall-Mies

  • Joanne was very flexible with price and meeting times as well as giving us full control over our ceremony. We had it go exactly how we wanted even with our special requests to include our bridal party to be involved with the hand ceremony. I loved the books and materials that were included with her service so that we could research and build our custom wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding all thanks to Joanne!!!

  • Working with Bill and his wife Joann really made our wedding ceremony ours and we could not be happier about how it turned out! My now husband and I really enjoyed the mindfulness aspect of Bill's services and were very excited to work with him after meeting with him! He is not just in it for the money. He truly care about you as a couple and each of your sessions with him as you develop your ceremony is a growth experience, personally and for you as a couple. John and I immensely enjoyed the time we spent with Bill because it allowed us to explore and create a ceremony that was 100% us. It used our words, our beliefs, and our story. We loved being able to choose every aspect of the ceremony. Working on it helped us grow closer during our engagement which made that time all the more special. We had so many compliments from our guests about how touching, personal and unique the ceremony was. Bill and Joann were incredible to work with. They made the process easy and are just the most lo... Read more

  • My husband and I got married on September 10th 2016 in Annapolis. I found Bill and his wife Joanne on wedding wire about a year and a half ago. They were both very responsive to everything we needed for our ceremony. They did a great job at personalizing our ceremony and really making it our own even without writing our own vows. We attended four meetings with Bill, they are at least a couple of hours long each time so I would make sure you do not plan anything right after. Bill is also very flexible, there were a couple instances where I had to change the date or the time last minute and he was very flexible with allowing us to change out meeting time. I highly recommend Bill to anyone who wants a great officiant and someone who is friendly and also professional! :)

  • We had a wonderful experience preparing and prepping for our wedding with Rev. Bill and his wife Joanne. We wanted to stay away from a cookie-cutter ceremony where we were just going through the motions. With Rev. Bill and Joannne, we were able to personally craft our own ceremony to make it extremely meaningful to us. We also appreciated that before each session, we took a few minutes of meditation to help get us in the right headspace to think exactly what we wanted to say in front of all of our family and loved ones. Many people told us afterwards that it was one of the most poignant ceremony they have ever witnessed and the love between us was so evident. Although so much of wedding planning is stressful, I really appreciated that the work with Rev. Bill and Joanne as a great reminder of why were getting married in the first place and what truly mattered- the two of us.

  • Mindful Ministries worked very hard to make our wedding ceremony special. They took a lot of time to get to know us and our relationship, which showed in our wedding ceremony. They were well organized, and helped us put together a unique and personal ceremony for our wedding.
