  • After seeing the beautiful ceremony Maureen did for my sister and brother-in-law, my husband and I knew we wanted to use her for our wedding. The whole process was so easy and positive right from the start- even at our first meeting, we felt like we'd known her for years! Maureen effortlessly captured the special parts of our relationship that make our love unique. The ceremony was truly amazing- there were tears, laughter, and everything in between. Our guests continued to come up to us all night raving about how beautiful the ceremony was. It's clear that Maureen was meant to do this, and she is so gifted at it. We highly recommend her and we're happy to call her our friend now!

  • When a global health crisis derailed our wedding plans (and rearranged everyone's lives), Maureen was flexible and helpful throughout our rescheduling/replanning process. We eventually decided to go through with a small, socially-distant ceremony that far exceeded our expectations! The words were beautiful, and the few family members in attendance - as well as those joining in over Zoom - loved it. She understood what made our relationship work, and it showed in the ceremony. Truly a moment we will never forget. We are so glad to have chosen Maureen, and we look forward to working with her for our First Anniversary vow renewal!

  • We decided to get married within a week after our decision because our original plans pre-quarantined times had to be changed. Pastor Jeffries was so helpful in finalizing our commitment and she taught us a lot about the meaning of marriage in our intial conversation via Zoom. I would highly recommend her to others!

  • 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!

    Thank you so much Stephanie - It was such a pleasure to work with you and be a part of your day - even if one of you is an Islanders fan - no names mentioned. Wishing you many, many years of happiness!

  • If you’re looking for a wedding officiant, look no further than Rev. Jeffries. She has been amazing, especially throughout this whole pandemic. She has met with us a few times and the conversation flows as if she is one of our closest friends. She helped us write our vows, and even did a meditation session for brides who had to reschedule their wedding, which my now wife thoroughly enjoyed. She even went above and beyond to officiate our small, socially distanced wedding ceremony this past weekend, so that my wife and I could keep our original wedding date. She is everything we could have ever asked for in an officiant and I would give her the highest of recommendations. She is such a good officiant that we are using her twice! (Once for our small ceremony and once for our postponed date)

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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...
