  • We selected Rev. Mary because in her photos, she was mostly laughing with the bride & groom. From day one, she greeted us with happiness, offered great guidance when needed, and made the selection of elements of our service amazingly easy. We had thought we'd be writing our vows for weeks but Rev. Mary provided us with plenty of beautiful selections to choose from in addition to the option to write our own. Our guests raved about how lovely our service was and Reverend Mary's ease, grace and smiling presence. Having Reverend Mary officiate was one of our best decisions surrounding our wedding. You'll love her for sure.

  • Rev Mary was a delight to work with. She made our wedding exactly what we wanted. She offered all different readings and traditions that we wanted in our ceremony! She was able to give us advice on what things work and what things don’t work. She was personable and made us feel like we had known her for years! We are so very happy we went with her!

  • Rev. Mary was a pleasure to work with! She was very flexible and easy going throughout our wedding planning process and on time ready to go for all our meetings. I told her I wanted a fun ceremony with a lot of laughs and that's exactly what we got. She gave us plenty of samples to look through as a good starting point for the ceremony outline and made adjustments for us where asked, along with suggestions for our wine box ritual. She helped us go through our ceremony during the rehearsal multiple times to make sure everyone knew what to do as half the bridal party was from a different culture where ceremonies are done differently. It all turned out great even with smaller hiccups from the bridal party but she went with the flow and made all the guests laugh along; it ended up being a unique and fun ceremony!

  • Rev Mary Powers was the perfect choice for our wedding! I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. She helped us plan a ceremony that expressed our feelings for each other and was just perfect for us. She just got us. We don't take ourselves too seriously, and she laughed right along with us, making us feel like we'd known her for years. She's warm and friendly and our guests loved her. I would highly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding. She definitely made our wedding ceremony just perfect. I cannot thank her enough for being a part of our wedding. She's just amazing!

  • I can’t say enough wonderful things about Mary. She married my sister 8 years ago as well and we both loved her! Her warm, loving approach was felt through the entire process. She was flexible (she literally flew a plane to marry us), very affordable, and answered every question quickly and thoroughly. I highly recommend Mary for a wonderful, stress-free beginning to your marriage!

    Ellen - thank you so much for having me as your officiant! I LOVE being involved with families.

  • We wanted to thank you for helping us create the most heart-felt, authentic ceremony one could hope for. One of my friends whispered in my ear, "I've been to a lot of weddings, Allison, but this one was by far the most beautiful." You said that would happen and it did. Many of our friends asked about you..."how did we find you?, etc" Many commented that you MADE the ceremony...your words linked every piece of the ceremony together flawlessly and the ceremony itself seemed well rehearsed. They loved that you enjoyed yourself just as we did! Please see attached picture. I share all this feedback because you told us the story about how you came to be a reverend and how people would comment that you should "marry them." We feel blessed beyond words that our paths crossed with yours and that you presided over our wedding.

    Thank you Allison! This photo shows me perfectly...mouth wide open and laughing!! Your ceremony was just lovely and so heart-felt. Many blessings to you both!

  • Mary was absolutely perfect for our wedding. From the very beginning she was organized, responsive, and professional - all things that my husband and I value when hiring a vendor. She provided us with several readings and excerpts that we could use for our wedding, and we were able to make it personalized and all about us! She was incredible with including personal familial touches that were just mentioned during meetings with Mary before the wedding. All of our guests said that she was wonderful and that the ceremony was perfect. She typed up our vows and readings for us, and did little things for us that just showed us we 100 million percent made the right choice choosing Mary!

  • I can not begin to explain how amazing Rev Mary was throughout the entire process of my wedding. She was in constant communication with me and my husband whenever I needed some input. Me and my husband are both active military so our schedules were pretty tight. She was extremely flexible for us. The ceremony was beautiful. I couldn't have asked for a better officiant.

  • Rev. Mary did an excellent job as our officiant for our wedding. She was a pleasure to work with and was very helpful and responsive throughout the whole process. She helped us to file our paperwork and our certified copy was in the mailbox when we got back from our honeymoon. She is professional and really knew our venue which make things go really smoothly. She met with us twice to go over details of our ceremony and vows. We wrote our own vows and she even printed them on nice paper for us to keep. I highly recommend Rev. Mary to anyone getting married.

    Thank you Tammy! It was a joy to perform your ceremony...especially when Mother Nature only rained on us at the rehearsal! I hope you had a blast at the reception....your peeps were so much fun!!!

  • Rev. Mary was, to put it simply, AMAZING! We had planned for an outdoor ceremony. Unfortunately, in the middle of the ceremony it began to pour. Mary promptly asked that everyone grab a chair and head under the tent to finish the ceremony and didn't miss a beat in her transition. She was light, funny, and witty and I had guests telling me that night and into the next day how much they enjoyed her delivery. While I'm sure there are things I would have changed from a planning aspect if I were to do everything over again, this is not one of them. We loved Rev. Mary and are so grateful for her officiating our wedding!

    oh Thank you Brittany! It was fun and funny...loved little Camden applauding when your mom read her poem! Life isn't perfect and so we adjust. At the end of the evening you were married to a wonderful man and he to a wonderful woman..what more could be asked of such a night?

  • From our very first meeting with Rev. Mary, we were impressed with her thoroughness. She considered contingencies that until then were far from our minds, as well as matters tangentially related to her role but crucial to the overall success of the ceremony. We were also impressed by Mary’s approachable but direct manner. She made what can be an intimidating process straightforward, and, even fun — a walkthrough of the more intricate parts of the ceremony in our own living room made us giggle, and definitely eased nerves at the rehersal and actual ceremony. To help us build our ideal ceremony, Mary offered a process that fit well with how we're used to doing work in our professions. She emailed us a packet with a range of different texts for all the different parts, along with links to other resources, allowing us to mix and match our favorites, as well as customized vows, onto an outline she also provided, and offering to help via email, phone or a meeting when we needed it.

    oh thank you Steve! We did have fun didn't we? I hope the reception was everything you both dreamed. Here's hoping you live 'happily ever after!'

  • Rev. Mary was wonderful! She was extremely helpful, flexible, took care of sending in the paperwork for the certified marriage license for us, and had great ideas about pictures and ceremony decor setup. She's very personable and down to earth, we loved her! She gives many options to choose from for every section of the ceremony or if you find something online to use instead, she'll use whatever you decide. Highly recommend her!!
