  • It's been over four months since our wedding and our wedding guests are still commenting about our ceremony and how beautiful and great it was. They loved all the personalized touches and that it fully represented my husband and I. Working with Maureen was like a dream - she was very responsive and really worked with us to get everything that we wanted to be included. I am so thankful we worked with her and cannot recommend her enough!

  • Maureen was amazing. We are a mixed faith couple and didn't have a clear vision for our ceremony, and were so grateful to have Maureen come to our rescue! Maureen brought many creative ideas to the table! She has such a calming presence. She really allowed us to create something special that represented us with through the readings and traditions we wanted in our ceremony, and she was flexible with late in the game changes. Maureen created a beautiful, personalized ceremony that had us and our guests laughing and crying. She was comforting, reliable, and organized. I would highly recommend her!

  • 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.

    Alex - That was the most beautiful sunrise ceremony. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of the most memorable day. Onto the next few magic moments - like becoming parents in a few months! I can't wait until you can enjoy those sunrises as a family. Babies wake up super early too! Can you put a baby seat on a spin bike?

  • My husband and I are so happy with our decision to have Maureen marry us. We had spoken to several officiants but both immediately felt “done” when we spoke to Maureen. While many of the others felt very churn & burn and impersonal, she was the complete opposite. Who would officiate was really important to us and Maureen delivered in every way. We wanted a ceremony that was moderate & brief, a blend of mostly religious readings/message but also incorporated secular ones. Maureen was fully respectful of this, gave great suggestions for how to accomplish this goal, and helped build a ceremony that we loved. She took the time to counsel & get to know us and customized a ceremony to match. She communicated and involved us so we felt comfortable with everything and weren’t at all concerned about surprises day of. On our wedding day, she showed up early and didn’t run out the door the second the ceremony was over, which we really appreciated. We had so many guests compliment Maureen/... Read more

  • 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.

  • 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

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.

  • 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!
