She was so helpful throughout the whole process, providing great material to help build our ceremony and answering any questions that we had along the way. The day of, she was flexible with our plans and helped us choose a great spot for the ceremony. We love the ceremony that she helped us create and she was a wonderful person to have stand beside us! We highly recommend Stephanie - couldn't have been happier with our choice.

  • Stephanie was so great to work with. She was quick to respond to any questions we had. She was very organized and had many options to choose from so that we could compile our own wedding ceremony that fit our personalities. She was also great with getting us (procrastinators) to stay on top of things! She has so much experience and advice to help make your day special. She did a wonderful job and everything went seamless on our wedding day. I highly recommend Stephanie to help make your big day complete and worry free.

  • Stephanie did an exceptional job officiating our wedding ceremony in October '15. From the minute we were in touch, I was amazed at how responsive she was. She provided us with detailed information on how to obtain our marriage licenses, sent us a very long email of examples of religious and non-religious ceremony material for us to choose from, created ceremony programs for our guests, and was in constant contact with us while drafting and re-drafting our final ceremony. After all is said and done, I can safely say that she REALLY knows what she is doing and is excellent at her job. In comparison, her services are also very reasonable priced with travel fees included. I would recommend her services to anyone in need of a well-organized, warm & kind person to conduct a wedding ceremony. Thank you so much, Stephanie!!

    It was a genuine privilege to meet you and officiate at your lovely wedding. You are both very special people with a touching love story. I do hope you stay in contact and give us a call whenever you are in Maine.

  • Stephanie was an absolute pleasure to have as the officiant for our wedding this past weekend at Grey Havens Inn. My husband and I are from Ohio, but wanted our wedding to be held in Maine. Because so, Stephanie and I were in contact over email and phone for months leading up. Even from afar, her embracement of us as couple was not only uplifting, but gave such ease to the nerves that come with planning a wedding ceremony. Immediately upon meeting her at City Hall for our marriage license the day before our wedding, Stephanie had us laughing and smiling. Her personality is warm and loving. The exact persona of someone you would want to marry your partner and you. And because so, Stephanie made the ceremony much more than recited words out-loud and our guests as well as our wedding party loved her playful demeanor.

    Nicole, Thank you for your warm words. It was indeed a pleasure to get to know you and preside at you wedding ceremony. It is always a special delight when couples are open to a bit of fun and teasing around their ceremony. Weddings are by nature serious affairs, but should not be "heavy". It is, after all, a celebration of love. You two made it easy with your obvious love for each other and your romantic story. Please give us a call whenever you return to Maine. Peace, Stephanie

  • What started out as a simple cival ceremony turned into something personal and much more meaningful than I thought possible thanks to Stephanie. Her thoughtful interview of us came back to us in a ceremony that touched our hearts in a way we will always remember.

    responded with the following comments.

    I know you requested the "no frills" ceremony, as you wanted to br married the same day you first called me. But the little information you shared inspired me to find words to include in your ceremony that I thought would be especially meaningful to you. I am happy to hear that this was the case. I do enjoy doing a bit of research to find new parts of ceremonies to include when I think they would make the ceremony more meaningful for the couple. I'm glad that you live nearby so we can meet for breakfast once in a while. Peace, Stephanie

  • Stephanie was a joy, and made our special day even more special. She was very responsive, easy to work with, had lovely ideas for our ceremony and was totally receptive to the ideas we had as well. Stephanie provided our witnesses, who were kind enough to take pictures for us as well. We found Stephanie to be a kind, warm and lovely person - our ceremony was just perfect!

  • Stephanie was perfect for us! We wanted a double wedding with friends, who wanted some things different from us. We also wanted no hassles, and we wanted to get it done simple and fast, because both we and our friends have been together a long time anyway, and we were not able to spend a lot of time away from work to travel to Maine (from Florida) to get married. Stephanie was very accommodating to all of this, plus she brought a warm love and sensitivity to everything that made it extra-special for us. She sent us materials to help us plan our services, and she put our desires together into a beautiful ceremony. She also handled the paperwork flawlessly - we were able to get married in the morning and get our certificates from the town hall in the afternoon! Who could ask for more?!

    responded with the following comments.

    It certainly was a treat to meet you all and get to to know you a bit. Yours was my first double wedding as well as the first in that beautiful mansion B&B in Bath. I was happy to incorporate the wishes of both couples into one ceremony. From my point of view, it was perfect! You are special couples and I certainly hope to be seeing you again. I have been blessed this year in that I have met couples like you who seem more like friends than clients. Happiness always!

  • For anyone considering a wedding in the Bath, Maine area, we consider Stephanie Batterman to be the person to contact to perform your ceremony. We are long time Denver, Colorado residents, unfamiliar with Maine and we initially contacted Stephanie via email. We knew of no one to help plan the location or the ceremony. The minute we met in person, we were immediately comfortable. Stephanie was extremely helpful, graciously suggesting several possible locations, giving helpful, insightful suggestions regarding our ceremony and vows and helping us find witnesses. We have no doubt that anyone would be delighted with her and her services. Our first, but not our last, visit to Maine was made all the more enjoyable by meeting Stephanie and her husband.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to get to know you and work with you to create your lovely ceremony. As you know, I believe that love is a miracle and that miracle was evident in both of you the moment we met. I hope to see you when you return to Maine!

  • We found Stephanie on the Wedding Wire and were very happy with her service. She took the time to get to know us beforehand, provided a great many ceremony options for us to choose from, answered our questions, and gave her opinion when we asked for it. You can tell when you meet Stephanie that she enjoys being an officiant and takes her role in your ceremony very seriously and wants to provide the best experience that she can. She was perhaps a bit more rigid to the schedule than we were expecting. We were not quite ready for the ceremony to start (photographer was not in place) but she was being faithful to the schedule and began. My recommendation would be to just make this a discussion point and I'm sure she would be accommodating.

    responded with the following comments.

    I wish I knew the date of your wedding so I could remember exactly what happened. When there is a wedding coordinator involved, I am not in charge of the ceremony starting time. If I was in charge, I sincerely apologize for not checking to be sure the photographer was ready. As it is, I do not remember there being a problem at any of the weddings this year. I have enjoyed performing each ceremony for each of my couples. Please feel free to contact me directly so I can apologize in person.

  • Stephanie was just wonderful! The ceremony was on the coast of Maine, with the seals in the background, was so intimate and wonderful. I almost wanted to relocate to Maine from Wisconsin just to be with this wonderful woman. Call us or email us if you want. Jim & Gary 414 510-6783 [email protected] Warning! Stephanie gives wonderful hugs.
