  • Reverend Maureen was so wonderful. She wrote an absolutely beautiful ceremony and we were so comfortable with her. She took the time to know us and personalize our experience. I would not have had our wedding day any other way!

  • Such an awesome officiant! Would recommend to anyone. She went above and beyond to make our say unforgettable! She was able to make a very unique ceremony that surprised me. She was even there to support us mentally and emotionally before during and after the wedding. We are so glad she was a part of our wedding!

  • Reverend Jeffries was everything we could have asked for. She is kind, thoughtful and funny. It was a delight to work with her and she made everything feel so easy. Maureen guided us through writing our vows and created a ceremony, with our help, that was perfect for us in every way. She was extremely responsive, flexible and helpful. Our day was truly magical and we feel so lucky we found Rev Jeffries to be part of it.

  • Reverend Maureen Jeffries has found her calling. Hiring her for our wedding ceremony was one of my best decisions. She truly took the time to get to know us as individuals and as a couple. She captured exactly what we wanted for our ceremony. She performed a very personalized and memorable wedding ceremony that everyone raved about. I strongly recommend her without reservation.

  • Maureen took so much time and effort to get to know my wife and I personally. She built our ceremony so it was customized to us and what is important to us. It made our ceremony so much more intimate and touching and we couldn’t have been happier. Her experience and guidance helped us create a ceremony we will never forget.

    Thank you Zack! Such a pleasure to get to know the two of you and your families. Thank you for being so open and honest with me through the process and for putting your whole heart into the ceremony. Wishing you love and happiness today and always.

  • We first witnessed a wedding that Reverend Jeffries officiated for dear friends in 2015. When we found her on Wedding Wire, we knew we needed to have her be apart of our day! We had a total of 3 calls prior to the big day. During the process she made it fun while being perfectly realistic and open to our ideas to personalize our day, which we (still!) really appreciate. The ceremony was gorgeous and we had a ton of compliments about it. The icing on the cake was when the mesh of my gown ripped and she came in to save the day with her sewing talents! (Brides/Grooms - remember to pack a sewing kit in your bridal suite!) Maureen- thanks so much for making our day so easy breezy & full of love, we were so happy to have you in our life during this time!

    responded with the following comments.

    Lynda - You know that I loved every minute of creating your ceremony - getting to use my sewing talents - now that was definitely the icing on the cake! Thank you for putting your trust and faith in me. Thank you for being so kind and generous during the process and thanks for the stromboli!

  • Our wedding was more than two months ago and yet I still cannot believe how incredibly blessed my husband and I are to have had Rev. Maureen Jeffries play such a special part in our day. She MADE our ceremony the most meaningful, memorable, and joyful event for us and for all of our guests. More than that, Rev. Jeffries's advice in the days leading up to the wedding was invaluable. Her expert coaching enabled us to formulate and articulate our own ideas on the meaning of marriage and to openly discuss all of the things we value in our partnership. We are so grateful to have gone through this process with Maureen as our guide. With remarkable perception, Rev. Jeffries crafted a personalized ceremony that was so completely reflective of who we are as a couple, our values, and personalities. Her understanding and knowledge of our different cultural and religious backgrounds ensured that several key aspects of our traditions were harmoniously integrated. I have to add that she did all of ... Read more

    Talia - You are so very welcome. The first wedding I ever did was at The Grounds for Sculpture, I was so lucky to be able to go back there and experience it again. The two of you are so sweet and kind and delightful and your families were just lovely. I am the lucky one to be able to have met your grandmother and heard her story and to have been able to relay your sweet romance to your friends and family. Thank you for putting your faith in me!

  • If you're looking for a ceremony that is personally tailored and unique to you and your spouse-to-be, Maureen is the best there is. When my husband and I met her, we both immediately knew she was going to be the one. She is gifted in her abilities to derive certain elements about what makes you special as a couple. She really takes the time to get to know you as a couple and as individuals, and somehow turns it into a magical ceremony. After meeting with her, you leave feeling closer to your s/o and it's such a heart-warming feeling that I wanted my sister and her husband to meet with her just to be able to experience her in that regard! She is thoughtful, creative, kind, flexible, very attentive, and goes above and beyond for you. She arrived a couple of hours early, ensuring everything was on track. Our ceremony was so beautiful, so personal, so sweet; that it perfectly captured my husband and me as a couple, and she was able to incorporate certain traditional elements that left ever...

  • If you are looking for a custom tailored wedding ceremony Rev. Jeffries is the only way to go. She was able to incorporate traditional elements from our mixed religions as well as beautiful cultural elements that felt inclusive to everything our relationship represents and who we are. We could not believe the warm and passionate words she shared especially having known us for only less than a week. Thank you for sharing our special day with us and for giving us the most beautiful ceremony.

    Thank you so much Allison - It was such a pleasure to spend your wedding day with you! So pleased at how easily it all fell into place. Wishing you all the best. Stay in touch!

  • Choosing Rev. Maureen Jeffries as our wedding officiant was one of the best decisions we ever made! She performed my sister and brother in laws wedding 5 years ago and I felt she did a wonderful job then. She was the first person and only person I could imagine marrying my fiancé and I. She took the time to learn about us as a couple and wrote an amazing ceremony speech for our wedding. We felt like we knew her years in how we just connected with her. Maureen put us at ease with her friendly and kind demeanor. She worked closely with us in selecting meaningful readings and passages. Maureen also did a magnificent job of incorporating my husbands Macedonian traditions into the ceremony. After the ceremony our family and friends gave us many compliments on how personalized our ceremony was. They all felt the same connection to her as we did and thought she spoke so well. They also all said it was as if she had known us for years! Maureen has become family to us and we would highl... Read more

  • Maureen is great to work with. She took the time to get to know us both in person and over the phone and took our personalities into account when writing and performing our ceremony. She had great suggestions and recommendations on what works well and helped on focus on the important aspects of how we wanted our wedding ceremony to be. Not only did we love working with her, I received so many comments from guests on how much they enjoyed the ceremony.

    Thank you so much Michelle - I loved every minute of working with you both! Wishing you love and happiness for your first year and your forever after!

  • Finding an officiant was probably the most difficult decision my wife and I had to make during the planning process. However, when we met Maureen, we knew she was the one. We didn't need to meet with any other officiants. She was inviting, professional and extremely personable. During our first meeting with her, we felt as though she had known us for years. We had no idea what questions to ask or where to even begin but, Maureen took her time and guided us through the entire thing. On the day of our wedding our guests could not stop raving about how amazing she was. We could not be happier with our decision to have her marry us!

  • My husband and I were married on May 4, 2019 and are still in complete awe of how perfect our wedding ceremony was thanks to Rev. Maureen Jeffries! From the moment we reached out to Maureen to see if she was available to officiate our wedding she was professional, friendly and always available to touch base throughout the planning process. Maureen took time with us individually and as a couple to help create a personalized ceremony that encompassed Christian and Jewish traditions to tell our very special love story. Maureen’s professionalism and attention to detail exceeded our expectations. Our family and friends were extremely touched by her words and we could feel the calm and loving energy in those moments. Moments we will hold in our hearts forever! It was the best day of our lives!

  • We found Reverend Jeffries on Wedding Wire and are so happy we reached out! We live on the West Coast but we’re getting married back in New Jersey and so many of our meetings were on the phone or via Skype. From the first meeting with her over Skype, we felt the Reverends’s warmth and comforting attitude radiate through the screen. It wasn’t just about the wedding day with her. She made you feel relaxed and kept us laughing with her stories. On our special day, Reverend Jeffries was attentive to us and our families, making sure everyone was comfortable and knew what their role and responsibility was going to be. She went the extra mile to make sure our day was extra special. We can’t thank her enough!

  • Our wedding ceremony was so personal and special thanks to Maureen! My best friend had used Maureen to officiate her wedding, and my fiancé (at the time) and I were so impressed with Maureen’s soft-spoken demeanor and wonderful storytelling that we contacted her about ours. Best decision ever! People are still talking about how amazing, personal, and beautiful the ceremony was and others are reaching out for Maureen’s information for friends that are getting married. First off, Maureen is sweet, witty, funny, and warm. She makes you (and your friends and family!!) feel immediately at ease and comfortable when in her presence. My husband and I met with her to discuss our relationship, how we met, how we feel about each other, etc. Things that most people don’t talk about often, but she made us feel comfortable and allowed us to be open. We also filled out a questionnaire individually and then separately to give her more insight into our feelings, which was a really nice ex... Read more

    Mallory- I can’t thank you enough for your kind words. Your wedding was such a magical night - thank you for letting me be a part of it! Thank you for sharing your family and friends - I really mean it when I say I am the luckiest person at every wedding. Gil and I will celebrate 21 years together this year. I really believe it is the strength of all the relationships that I have had the privilege of being witness to that has made our marriage so strong. I know you and Danny will take care of each other in such a brilliant way in your years to come . Shoutout to Sean from his favorite Padre. ♥️
