As a California wedding officiant, I’m going to tell you something shocking: Your wedding IS your ceremony. Think about that for a minute. All of this work and time and money you are spending is to celebrate what you do during the ceremony – officially declaring your marriage! So let’s make your ceremony about the two of you: Your traditions, your priorities, your love story. I want for you to have an awesome experience that is fun and meaningful. That’s why I get to know the two of you before I write a word of your ceremony.
Happy Ever After

Here’s what my couples are saying about this California wedding officiant…
I would give Marie 10 stars if I could!!! My ceremony was more than my husband and I could ever dream of. From meeting us in person once and reading our answers to her questionnaire, she was able to describe both of us as individuals and our love as if she had known us her whole life. We had a non-denominational ceremony at the Point Vicente Lighthouse & Interpretive Center outside overlooking the entire ocean. My husband and I are both artists and published poets so our standard for words are very high. She was able to create the most meaningful ceremony with all of the best intentions. We had a sand ceremony and exchanged rings. Our ceremony reflected us so much as if we put it together ourselves. I believe I found her on WeddingWire, and she immediately responded to me and called me and I booked her just like that on instinct. And it was the best decision I could have made. Having a ceremony that reflects your relationship to the T is a very difficult thing to do for a stranger. Marie has definitely found her calling and has a special gift of being the best story teller of true love. Till this day I have friends and family constantly complimenting me on having the best ceremony ever because of Marie. My husband and I are so grateful that we were blessed with her gift. And she is a big reason why that day was so special to us. I can honestly say that I LOVE her and can’t thank her enough for everything she has done for us. She’s the type of person that get’s along with anyone. And she is hilarious at that too. Our wedding was perfect in the sense that there was a perfect balance between romance, humor and sacredness. It was the most divine sacred union of love. I’m surprised she’s not booked YEARS in advance.

Minister Marie is truly one of a kind! We initially wanted a family member to officiate our wedding, but we didn’t want to put the pressure on them so we turned to Yelp! We met with Minister Marie at Starbucks and immediately I knew she would be perfect for our ceremony. She has a great attitude, very friendly, well spoken and has great energy. As soon as we got home, I quickly booked her for our wedding. A month prior to our wedding, she contacted us individually and had us fill in questionnaires so she can get a sense of who we are, both individually and as a couple. We met with her again to go over our vision for the wedding as well as details on what we wanted to include. She customized our ceremony script and allowed us to make changes as needed. I think we went through 3 drafts before we got it down perfectly. She was very patient and helpful through all the changes and my random questions. The day of the wedding, she arrived early, checked on us and most importantly, delivered a wonderful ceremony. Our friends and family loved her as well!!!
She also has a great booking system. Everything is done online and email notifications and reminders are sent immediately. It seriously made the whole process easier.
Look no further and book Minister Marie for your wedding! You won’t regret it!!! We can’t THANK YOU enough!!!
