  • Reverend Mercy was an absolute pleasure to work with. After a casual interview, she patiently guided us through crafting our ceremony, incorporating our own ideas and offering up brilliant suggestions of her own. On the big day, she conducted our ceremony (in English AND Spanish!) with total grace and serenity. Couldn't have asked for a better officiant.

    Hi Garrett, Thank you so much for such a lovely review! It was an honor to be part of your wedding day. You and Leo make a beautiful couple. I'm not sure I told you this that day, but when I was at my interfaith seminary, we learned that in many cultures and faith traditions, rain during a ceremony is viewed as Mother Nature's blessing, so you were majorly blessed that day! May you continue to be blessed throughout your life together. With love and gratitude, Mercy

  • Mercedes was so amazing! My two favorite parts of wedding planning were cake tasting and meeting with her in advance of our wedding. During that meeting she asked about our relationship, listened to our stories and asked about how much religion or spirituality we wanted incorporated into the ceremony. The ceremony was perfect and was very personal. My mom who has a hard time hearing has told me multiple times how clearly she could understand everything said in both languages. So many wedding guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. Mercedes made our ceremony truly special!!

    Hi Ceci, Thank you so much for such a glowing review! It was an honor to officiate your and Mitchell's ceremony. It was also a lovely experience to do a second wedding in the same family. I really enjoyed talking to both your parents and Mitchell's grandmother. I'm glad to hear your mom could hear everything clearly! It was a beautiful day. I wish you both all the happiness in the world! With love and gratitude, Mercy

  • Rev. Mercy was amazing! She took the time to get to know my now husband and me on a personal level. She made our vows a true reflection of our quirky, strong love for each other. Along with adding romantic touches, Rev. Mercy mentioned God and faith for my husband and family. It was truly beautiful and we couldn't be more thankful our search led to Rev. Mercy!

  • Mercy exceeded our expectations as an officiant and I’m so glad that we found her. Prior to our big day, we met over coffee to chat and get to know each other better. She has a calming presence and we immediately felt comfortable with her. She got to know our quirks, our dreams and our philosophies, and she beautifully articulated the essence of mine and my partners relationship throughout the ceremony. She really tailored everything to us—we were able to include important rituals, and she recommended passages to be read (English and Spanish). It was important to us that our ceremony was bilingual, and Mercy’s Spanish is on point! The transitions between the two languages was smooth and everything felt so natural and personal. She also received rave reviews from my guests. On more than a few occasions guests came up to me to ask “Who was that!? Wow! She was so good!!!” She was just awesome, and she deserved every compliment! You should definitely go with her!!!!

    Hi Niki, Thanks so much for such a beautiful review! I loved working with you and I am so happy and humbled that you were so happy with the ceremony. I also really enjoyed being able to work with fellow teachers and activist Bruins! You both are an amazing couple with great values around education and social justice. I wish you all the best in your marriage. With love and gratitude, Mercy

  • Rev Mercy was absolutely amazing and our ceremony couldn’t have been more perfect. We live in AZ and had to do our interview over the phone. Rev Mercy was not only professional but also very fun & understanding on what we were wanting for our wedding. She was able to do the service in English and Spanish (Key points) for our family that way everyone was thought of. She did amazing putting both our personalities into the ceremony and we are very happy and grateful with how it all turned out. Highly recommend!

  • Reverend Mercy delivered the wedding ceremony of our dreams. It was everything we hoped for in a ceremony and she helped prepare us for that moment with the rehearsal and with meeting her and emailing her. From the moment we met her we knew she was the officiant for us. We signed up for a spiritual cpu sowing session and she helped us discuss some big topics prior to our wedding which wasn’t really wonderful as my partner and I shared some of our excitement and concern. P Not only is she interfaith and respectful of all religions but we were grateful that she was inclusive of all types of ceremonies and couples. She helped us feel comfortable and helped us make the script for the ceremony perfect. When we sought how to incorporate the right rituals for our ceremony she recommended the lasso ceremony which ended up being perfect and a way to include our family. She was very communicative and helped us feel at ease. Thank you Reverend Mercy. Our day was so special and you helped the ce... Read more

    Hi Jasmine, Where do I begin? Thank you so much for the glowing review. I absolutely loved every moment of working with you and Christy, from our initial meeting, to the counseling session, the rehearsal, all the way through the wedding. I'm humbled that you felt the counseling was beneficial and I am even more humbled to have been a part of such a beautiful wedding. The two of you are an amazing couple and you have such a lovely family. You definitely have a solid and strong foundation for a beautiful live together. I wish you all the best. With love and gratitude, Mercy

  • Rev Mercy was so nice and kind. We got together with her to know each other so she can write a beautiful speech for us during the wedding. Everything was great without a hitch. I 100% recommend anyone to have her as your Rev. My wife’s and my family both loved everything of the ceremony and we couldn’t be happier with how great everything turned out. She also translated for my side of the family in Spanish so she didn’t leave anyone out during the ceremony.

  • Choosing our officiant was one of the last tasks we completed, just because we wanted to make sure we found the right person. When we found Mercy’s profile, we knew she was the one to help make our ceremony perfect. She was very quick to respond to any of our questions and help us understand the process. Once we finally met with Mercy, we realized that she makes each and every one of her ceremonies unique and true to each couple. She took the time to get to know us and understand our story. The end product was amazing. We laughed, we cried, we knew that she did everything possible to find the right words to make our day special. The added fact that she was able to incorporate our Catholic traditions to then ceremony was a huge bonus. All in all, it was an enormous pleasure to have Mercy at our wedding. She has a passion for this, and it’s clearly noticeable in her work.

  • Rev Mercy exceeded all expectations. After the wedding so many of the guests complemented the ceremony! I was so impressed by amount of time she spent getting to know us when we met so that she could write something for us, including paying homage to specific loved ones who have past. She is a kind and special soul who performs these ceremonies with love and attention to detail. We were also grateful that she could perform the ceremony in Spanish. She is wonderful, and one of my couple friends has already hired her for their wedding.

    Thank you so much, Rosalina! It was such an honor to perform your ceremony. Your wedding was so romantic. When you and Rene spontaneously started dancing after your kiss, my heart melted. It was so beautiful. I wish you both all the best. May you have a beautiful life together with lots of love and music.

  • We couldn't be happier that we chose Rev Mercedes. She worked with us to make a meaningful ceremony that had many personal touches. She is an excellent public speaker. She can evoke a wide-range of emotions, including humor that are so important for a meaningful ceremony. She did a bilingual English and Spanish ceremony for us that had traditional and contemporary pieces. We were editing the ceremony script right up until the last minute and she was forgiving and patient with us. We recommend her very highly. -Kathryn & Alex

    Hi Alex, Thank you for such a beautiful review. I was so happy and thrilled to meet you and to perform your ceremony. You and Kathryn make a great couple and I actually loved how detail-oriented you both were. That attention to detail helped make your ceremony truly lovely and unique. Give my love to Kathryn and hopefully we'll see each other again either in LA or NYC. With love and gratitude, Mercedes
