  • Martha is an amazing officiant to work with! She is kind, professional, and easy to communicate with. Her process for crafting a ceremony with the couple makes the whole event truly unique to the individuals getting married. She provides support throughout the whole process as well as resources from vow-writing to different wedding rituals to consider incorporating such as hand-tying. With Martha's attention to detail, we knew we did not have to worry about anything concerning the ceremony for the day of. We highly recommend Martha to any couple looking to have a hand in making their ceremony truly about their love story and the beginning of their lives together :)

    I loved all the thought and care you both put into it. I do this work because the meaning is so rewarding, and when the couple is as engaged as you were, it makes my work even more of a joy!

  • Martha was such a pleasure to work with - she allowed us to customize our ceremony, was prompt and thoughtful in her feedback, and was completely flexible when we needed to reschedule at the last moment. She is particularly an excellent choice for queer couples seeking an affirming officiant for their wedding. Highly recommended!

  • My Fiancée and I decided to get married after a long engagement. We specifically did not want a large or long ceremony, in fact for us the shorter the better. I found Martha through a web search and submitted some basic information. Martha's response time was very quick and her flexibility on timing and location was perfect. After a quick call and a few email exchanges we had everything set. The ceremony was just what we wanted, I couldn't recommend Martha more for your day!

  • Martha was absolutely fabulous and so accommodating. We searched and searched for the right officiant for us and we’re so glad we found Martha! She even came all the way out to St. Johnsbury to officiate our elopement ceremony after our original much more local plans had to change due to COVID. We can’t thank her enough!

  • Martha helped us design a custom ceremony that felt highly personalized, while still balancing the right amount of formality and tradition. After getting to know us through a series of meetings, a detailed questionnaire, and multiple rounds of collaborative edits, she ended up with a ceremony that all of our guests remarked was distinctively "us". Many, in fact, said it was the best wedding they'd ever attended.

  • We were so incredibly lucky to have found a Martha to be our officiant! Martha is kind, hard working, curious, a wonderful speaker, and makes you feel comfortable. She was dedicated to making our ceremony exactly what we were looking for and went above and beyond spending significant time to get to know about us as a couple, and about our ceremony. We were on a tight turnaround time and she helped us get everything done in time, sharing guides for vows, created the ceremony document, and was able to navigate a highly coordinated zoom streamed elopement ceremony with grace. We couldn’t have imagined our day without her and hope to remain friends. She is simply the best! We highly recommend her!!

    It's not often I feel such compatibility as I did with the two of you, Colleen. You both cared so deeply about the quality and sincerity of the ceremony, despite (or especially since?!) all your guests were present but virtually. Bright blessings to you both!

  • Martha created a personalized ceremony that fit our intentions perfectly. She was easy to work with and provided direction and help when we needed it. She helped us dive into questions about our relationship that made our ceremony and wedding very intimate and very “us”. Don’t hesitate is using Vermont Celebrants- you will not be disappointed!

    Thank you so much, Julie! It was an honor to work with you. Best and warmest wishes to you both. :o)

  • We felt completely taken care of and seen during our experience with Martha and enthusiastically recommend inviting her into your wedding. The thought of building a ceremony from scratch was the most intimidating part of planning our wedding. We knew we wanted something that would represent our shared values, and the joining together of our two families and cultures. We had no idea how to create that. Although we have had friends that have officiated other friends' weddings, we wanted someone who didn't just know us as individuals but who had thought deeply about the significance of marriage and could act as a guide for our union. We chose Martha because we knew she could bring depth and meaning to our ceremony through personalization rather than established religious ritual. Martha is also a uniquely warm, funny, and engaging public speaker from her many years with the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Burlington. I fully expect Martha to be in increasing demand, so kudos to th... Read more

    Thanks, Nina! Hosmer Point Camp was a beautiful setting, rain and all, and I was especially touched by the version of the crowning ceremony we created. Super-happy for you two!

  • We had an intimate backyard ceremony for which Martha was instrumental in making beautiful. She was open and supportive and met us right where we were with our needs and desires. Martha is kind and sincere and really cares about the people she works with and this is evident every step of the way!

  • Martha has been our neighbor neighbor for several years, and when the time came for us to have a legal ceremony we knew right away that we wanted her to be the officiant. She approaches this work seriously and respectfully while being very open, flexible, kind and compassionate. She was very thoughtful and thorough in her preparation, and very solicitous of what we as a couple wanted to include in our ceremony. The ceremony itself went every bit as smoothly and sweetly as we hoped it would. We are very grateful to Martha for the role she played in this momentous occasion for our family!
