  • Mercy was great!! She was very communicative and made us feel at ease during the whole process. She answered all of our questions. She made me laugh and cry just with the first draft! We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant on our big day!

    Hi Maggie, Thank you for such a lovely review and for the beautiful photo! As I said to Michael, I was so honored to work with you to create your wedding ceremony and I'm so happy that you were so happy with it. I really enjoyed meeting your families, both during the rehearsal and at the wedding. I wish you all the love, happiness, and success in the world. Please feel free to keep me posted on your happenings. With love and gratitude, Mercy

  • My husband and I were beyond pleased with Mercedes. She was amazing from the first time we had our video chat due to Covid. She walked us through the process got to know our background and helped us get an idea of what we wanted for our ceremony. When we got our first draft I wasn’t overwhelmed because she had done such a great job and laying out many options for us as to what we wanted and how we wanted our ceremony to flow. When I tell you our wedding ceremony was the most talked about thing our small guest list kept complimenting us on such wonderful ceremony and how it showed our love. I cannot thank her enough for all she did! Also little know fact it’s a small world after all one of my closest friends actually used Mercedes to marry her as well and she was at my wedding!! I think it was just meant for Mercedes to come into our lives and bless us with her union!!

    Hi Ruby, Thank you so much for not one, but two reviews in two different places! I really appreciate it. Like I said before, I really loved working with you and Irvin. You are such a lovely couple and it was an honor to celebrate your day with you and your family and friends, including Lupe and Carlos! I wish you and your growing family all of the love in the world. With love and gratitude, Mercy

  • Rev. Mercy was simply great! We hired her less than a month before our wedding and she immediately gave us a sense of relief. She is great for Spanish only speakers AND English only speakers! She gave us the entire ceremony script in English and Spanish and asked us to edit which parts we preferred in each language. She made it so easy to follow during our ceremony. I immediately received messages from friends asking for her contact information! She also answered all of our questions and submitted our paperwork through certified mail. She made it so easy for us to have such a special day!

  • Reverend Mercy came through with a beautiful and touching ceremony despite the challenges of the Covid-19 crisis. We had planned on a big “normal” wedding when Covid-19 suddenly disrupted our plans (and alas, everyone’s lives). Nevertheless, Rev. Mercy helped us continue to get married on our original date with a stunning and intimate Covid-safe beach ceremony. She gave us tons of generous time getting to know us before the wedding and giving us sage advice and priceless marriage counseling. She perfectly handled our less religious and more spiritual inclinations and had a beautiful and professional delivery of the ceremony. We are very grateful that we found and chose Rev. Mercy!

    Hi Erik, Thank you so much for such a beautiful review! It was so lovely working with you and Ericka and meeting your families. You're a beautiful couple who is committed to the work it takes to build a loving and lasting marriage. I wish you all the happiness in the world; you deserve it. 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

    Hi Chris, Thank you so much for the great review! It was such a pleasure to work with you and Lupe. I was honored to be part of your intimate wedding day, especially since you both are from the part of LA county that I grew up in.

  • Rev Mercy was great! We met with her prior to the wedding and she really took time to get to know us as a couple and paid great attention to detail. On the day of the wedding she spoke about us as if she knew us for years. We received many compliments on our ceremony! I especially loved that she was able to do a bilingual ceremony for my family. We would definitely recommend!

  • 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!

    Hi Gabriella! Thank you for the lovely review! It was fun getting to know you and Richard and I am so honored that you are both happy with your ceremony. I wish you both the best life has to offer and a happy new year! With love and gratitude, 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

  • 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
