  • 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!

  • 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

    Amy, you know that you and Nikola will forever be in my heart. Thank you so much for entrusting me with the ceremony. It was so wonderful to be with your family once again. I hope to share many, many more celebrations with you all!

  • 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.

  • 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. ♥️

  • My wife and I wanted a ceremony that was personal, while honoring the time-tested elements of a traditional ceremony. Maureen delivered on both counts. She took the time to get to know us, our story, our values and learn a little bit about the people in our lives. This process was not only useful, but inspired us to reflect more deeply on our relationship and what we want to create in our life together. From this meeting Maureen created a ceremony plan and vows that felt immediately "right". She completed the ceremony plan with our feedback and when the big day finally arrived, she conducted a beautiful service for us and our loved ones. Many people commented it was the best wedding ceremony they'd even been a part of. We could couldn't agree more. Thank you, Maureen. For everything.

    Matt - I can't thank you and Pam enough for choosing me to be a part of your wedding. Thank you so much for your kind words here, but also for your kindness during my Dad's illness. I'm so glad that you and Pam found one another! Much love to your families. -Maureen

  • Maureen was incredibly thoughtful about our ceremony and delivered something that was very meaningful while still having light-hearted moments. She was willing to have as many conference calls as we wanted, though our ceremony came together quickly in the end and we only had two phone calls. I had several guests comment that they were very impressed with our ceremony.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you Sarah - What an extraordinary wedding that was! I knew it was going to be a fun ceremony from the minute I walked out to greet the guests - you had a room full of people so happy for you and Matthew - but also ready to party! Thank you for letting me be a part of it all. Maureen

  • So easy to work with, process was stress-free, ceremony was creative and meaningful, lovely lovely experience. So glad we chose to work with her, we did hand-fasting and also a quote from Jane Eyre - but also traditional vows. Was very cool!

    Joanna - Thank you for your kindness and generosity in letting me be a part of your lovely wedding. Every detail was perfect and I know you had the best of both worlds - A small intimate affair for Adam and a lovely romantic ceremony for you. I'm so glad to have been a part of your day!

  • We do not belong to a church or anything, so we needed to find an officiant somehow. We emailed Maureen with the details of our wedding and then had an initial Skype call. We talked for about an hour and discussed ourselves and got to know her a bit too. We decided to move forward with Maureen. Because an in person meeting didn’t work with our schedules, we planned a second phone call during which we discussed the type of ceremony we wanted and other details. Maureen had us fill out a questionnaire – part of which we did together as a couple, and the other part we answered as individuals. This was so she could tailor the ceremony to us, rather than just read some words that had been used many times before. After we sent in the questionnaire, Maureen worked on a first draft of the ceremony, and we had a call in which she read it to us. She asked for our feedback and made sure we were comfortable with everything. As a couple, we initially had disagreed on whether to write our own v... Read more
