Marguerite, Nick and I were taken aback by how beautiful our wedding ceremony was. Even after reviewing it and reading it so many times, we didn't anticipate how significant and wonderful the ceremony would feel! Thank you for all your attention to detail and for the gracious way that you helped us see what we needed to and might include in our special day. We are so grateful! Thanks again. We'll send you the picture of all of us when we receive it.
- Many thanks, Rebecca & Nick, July 22, 2012
As it is for any couple, our search for an Officiant was extremely important to us; it would likely be the foundation of our special day, laying the groundwork for everything else to follow. Our search was exhaustive, so when we found, began communicating with, and finally met Marguerite, we knew she was the one. We interviewed Marguerite to determine her professionalism, experience, uniqueness, creativity, and overall personality. At the same time, she was interviewing us to ensure our personality and our relationship could be evident in our ceremony. Her process was efficient and allowed us to get to know one other – which shined bright to everyone attending our ceremony. Marguerite helped us develop our wedding ceremony, write our vows, choose our readings, and develop key activities within the ceremony. Marguerite was an absolute pleasure to work with. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the flow, format, love story and vows of our ceremony – they continue to express as much to us still. And, to top it off for us, Marguerite’s delivery of the ceremony script was perfect – her voice, intonations, inclusion of attendees, and the way she spoke directly to us made for a day we shall never forget. We are eternally grateful to Marguerite.

Marguerite, we can’t begin to express how wonderful it was to work with you to create our wedding ceremony. The process of filling out the questionnaire and going through the ceremony drafts helped us to hone in on the tone and sentiment we really wanted for our wedding. Your thoughtful and thorough work in creating the ceremony was so touching. We really couldn’t have been happier with our ceremony- the words and the delivery! You were caring, fun, and sincere. Your warm and genuine demeanor made the ceremony so special for us and for our guests. Thank you so much for your hard work and your kindness!
- Casie and Matt, April 2012
Marguerite, we want to thank you for making our wedding a big success! It seems just like yesterday when we were meeting you for the first time. We are glad you took the time to get to know us as it was reflected in the ceremony. We were really moved by the ceremony. Our guests voiced similar delights. We enjoyed every moment of it and we cannot wait to watch it on video. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
- Christina and Damarr, September 2011
I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my daughter and son-in-law's day so special on Saturday. I can't begin to tell you how you have touched my heart. You made that day something I will remember for the rest of my life. I have never heard of anyone performing a wedding the way you have. You are just so wonderful that I'm glad God gave you us for this special moment in our lives. I just can't put into words how you moved all of us to share in the experience of their lives now and forever. I love my daughter very deeply and am so excited that I also now have a wonderful son-in-law too. You were able to share with the group what I've already experienced with them and it meant so much to me that they feel that too.
- Sue Greenberg
Marguerite is amazing. She has a warm and inviting demeanor that made it a joy to work with her. She really made us think about our relationship with each other and we were compelled to identify and articulate what’s important to us. She helped us craft our civil union and anniversary celebration and suggested we include a ring warming ceremony which was one of the more memorable and touching moments of the day. Our friends and family said our ceremony was extremely moving and Marguerite helped make that happen. Just hire the woman already!
- Cheryl and Lucy, August, 2011
Hi, Marguerite. Thank you SO much for writing such a beautiful ceremony for our wedding. We've gotten nothing but compliments on how wonderful and how unique and touching our ceremony was. Your truly embodied what we feel for one another and helped make our day extra special! :-)
- Kim and Demi, October, 2011
We absolutely loved the ceremony. We had some of our most macho guy friends tell us they cried, and it was literally the first thing every single person commented on---that it was the most personal, most enjoyable ceremony they had ever witnessed. You did amazing! And everyone was talking about how cool you seemed and how much they liked your vibe. You truly made our wedding so very special, and we can't thank you enough for that.
- Dana and Andrew, October, 2011.
Thank you so much for a beautiful ceremony! Your help and guidance was essential and helped us immensely in planning our ceremony. Your kindness and sensitivity were outstanding. We really loved the whole experience and we really loved getting to know you
- Tom J. and Bob C.
Hi Marguerite - We just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you for everything yesterday. We can't even begin to tell you how many compliments we got on the ceremony. Several people said it was the best ceremony they'd ever seen.
Thanks again for helping make our wedding such a wonderful day.
- Katie and Sheldon, married June 26, 2011
Hi Marguerite - Mike and I just wanted to say thank you so much for officiating so wonderfully at our wedding. We just got back from Big Sur (so beautiful!) and can't stop talking about how much we loved it. We also got a lot of really nice comments from our guests about how much they enjoyed the ceremony and how personal it felt and how great you were! We definitely agreed. We couldn't picture a better day!
- Jessica and Mike, June 12, 2011
Lance and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary yesterday and as we reflect back to last year I just wanted to drop a note to say thank-you again. We had such a beautiful ceremony that is still, a year later, the most talked about part of our wedding. Our guests constantly and consistently tell us how amazing it was. You are extremely eloquent and a great orator! The ceremony was personal, meaningful and exactly what we wanted - a ceremony full of love that we will never forget - it truly reflected us as a couple. We appreciate all of the hard work and effort you put into writing the ceremony. Thank-you for the wonderful start to our marriage!
Lots of love,
We wanted to thank you for helping us with our wedding ceremony. We wanted a ceremony that was very meaningful, but we weren't sure how to create one on our own as neither of us are exactly wordsmiths! Your guidance and ideas helped craft a ceremony that we'll never forget. We got so many compliments on the ceremony, with most people commenting on how it was uniquely "us". You were able to help capture both the love and humor that are central to our relationship. You were able to help us create a ceremony that was warm and funny, yet gave our guests the opportunity to see what makes us tick. For that, we are eternally grateful.
- Take care, Kim & Jon
We are just back from our honeymoon and wanted to send you a note to let you know how wonderful you are and that our ceremony was so special! It was literally all our guests could talk about! It was everything we had hoped it would be and it is a memory we so treasure. I truly can not put into words just how amazing it was, warm and funny and personal. Many of our guests, and even family members said they left feeling like they knew us better and that it felt so warm and intimate. Thank you for being part of the day and making our wedding ceremony so very special; it really is the most wonderful gift.
Hope you are well! And a very sincere thank you from both of us!
- Kim and Mike Porritt, August 21, 2010
Marguerite created a ceremony for us that told our love story perfectly. It was so personalized and made the ceremony meaningful to us. It touched our families and friends. We had several wedding guests tell us that it was the most beautiful ceremony they have ever seen and made them feel like they knew what our relationship was about. Thank you Marguerite for making the wedding ceremony the most special and memorable part of our wedding day.
- Charlie and Lauren Briggs
Thank you so much for the care and personal touch that you gave to our wedding ceremony. Your presence was so natural and heartfelt that it was as if you had been a part of our lives for a long time. So many of our guests complimented us on our unique and romantic ceremony and on our wonderful officiant! I can't even count how many compliments we received. I am so happy to know that our guests actually enjoyed the most meaningful part of our big day, the ceremony, which can often get lost in the hustle and bustle of picking out flowers and cake designs. Thank you, Marguerite! We will definitely be recommending you to everyone we know. And I hope that we can find a way to incorporate you into our lives again down the road.
- Diane Doeing and James Cota
We got so many compliments on our ceremony from guests; some even said that if they could do it over, they'd do it more like ours. Marguerite was fun to work with, and we really felt like she got to know us in the process. She was open to our suggestions while providing a framework and guidance throughout the process. She crafted our civil ceremony from the ground up without any weird or awkward reliance on traditional or religious elements, which is exactly what we wanted. Marguerite really knows how to make a couple's wishes for their ceremony come to life in way that works for both the couple and their guests. The ceremony was a delight for us, our families, friends, and other guests. Thank you so much for helping to make our day such a lovely and meaningful experience.
Sarah and Joe
We wanted to thank you for the wonderful celebration that you directed over on June 11. We couldn't have been more happy with the whole service. We had numerous people come up to us after the service and tell us how great the wedding was and that you did an excellent job. Many praises. We do have your Web site and we would be more than happy to refer your name to other people. Again, thanks for making this day one that we will never forget and for you to have been a part of it.
Al and Pat Cota (parents of the groom, James Cota) June 11, 2010
Sunday was incredible. Thank you for being so wonderful. We received countless compliments about the ceremony. We really felt as though you made such an effort to create an incredibly personalized ceremony for us. It could not have been more perfect! Everyone at the ceremony was also so impressed with your poise and the feeling behind your words. It felt as though you had known us for years. Thank you so very much for making our dreams a reality. I could go on and on!! But we truly are so grateful that we found you Marguerite!
Rana Higgins and Keenan Ballo, (Wedding, May 16, 2010)
Thank you so much for giving us a wonderful ceremony. We got sooooo many compliments regarding how smooth, loving and professional your delivery was. You really made our day special and memorable. I appreciate everything you did for us, especially ensuring that my dad was able to see the ceremony.
We wanted to do things our way, incorporate a small setting, and really make the ceremony something to remember. Marguerite met all of our expectations and more. She met with us to go over all of our options and hear our thoughts. She was able to fully meet all of our expectations of a ceremony and we would/have recommended her to our friends and family.
The best decision my husband and I made regarding our wedding was having Marguerite as our celebrant. Working with Marguerite was an absolute joy from beginning to end. Her dedication, attention to detail, and presentation made our ceremony perfect. Her Couples Questionnaire offered a fun and insightful way to create our vows and share our joy and love with our guests. Marguerite shared unique ideas with us that made our ceremony special and fit our personal beliefs while respecting all of our suggestions and wishes. We highly recommend Marguerite as a celebrant who will produce the most meaningful and memorable ceremony that will have your guests raving all night.
Thank you so much for everything on Saturday. Even with the stress of "will it rain won't it rain" everything turned out amazing, minus the unavoidable couple of snags:) You helped to make our ceremony exactly what we have always wanted it to be, so thank you again for that. If you ever need a referral for your services, please feel free to contact me.
Thank you so much for officiating our wedding. We could not possibly have asked for a better celebrant! You did such a wonderful job of making us really feel comfortable throughout the planning process, and your comprehensive couples questionnaire helped us shape our ideas for the ceremony and share sentiments that might not have come so easily without your well-written prompts. We felt that our ceremony was really unique and represented us so well as individuals and as a couple, and our guests keep telling us that not only was a beautiful wedding, but a fun one as well. Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into crafting our ceremony, and for the poise and spirit that you shared with us on our wedding day.
So many possible emotions one could anticipate on their wedding day. For us, there was one. Love.
Marguerite creatively arranged a personal unique ceremony. She was receptive to our suggestions and ideas. She encouraged us to follow our hearts.
We did not want a cookie cutout ceremony. Every couple is unique. We wanted to celebrate the significance of our relationship.
Our ceremony was special. It reflected us as individuals and as a couple, who share and appreciate our families, friends, and life.
Expressing one's feelings can be challenging. Marguerite beautifully captured the essence of us.
Wedding guests stayed engaged and enjoyed our ceremony. They recalled many specific moments. Our guests were impressed and complimented Marguerite. This speaks volumes of her.
We heard comments such as: "We'd never been to a ceremony like that before. It was beautiful" and "What a neat way to celebrate a special couple" and "Marguerite was wonderful!"
We envisioned our ideal ceremony. We hoped we would find someone who'd help guide us and follow through with our ideas. Marguerite fulfilled our expectations and beyond. Having it all become possible was a great gift.
Marguerite is professional and personable. She is driven to make your wedding day your own. We feel fortunate that she worked with us.
Marguerite, we are forever grateful for you. You are an extraordinary person. Many Thanks!
Mike & Erin Erickson
Marguerite, our wedding would never have been so personalized and distinct had you not customized it to fit our personalities. It was amazing to look into the audience and see their faces fill with pure emotion as you recounted our love story. The ceremony you constructed for us was the perfect backdrop to the beginning of our lives together as married folks! It was so memorable and soothing. Many of my friends came up to us after the ceremony and complimented us on how unique it was, and how much they really liked you. People remarked that you set a very calm tone for the ceremony. Our parents were surprised and honored by the tribute you wrote for them. For us, that means a lot because we are both so close to our families. Because of you, we had a completely personalized and true to life depiction of our story in which our friends and families were able to partake. The sense of community, oneness, and cultural fusion was beautifully woven together in the ceremony you wrote for us. We couldn't have asked for a better ceremony or wedding experience. Thank you so much!
- Jade and Raj
Marguerite from beginning to end you were professional and very easy to work with. Most of my friends and family have been married in church by minister. I was one of the first to be married by an officiant outside the church. I could not have been happier with decision. I really liked the fact that you asked both my fiance and I to answer questions separately. I loved how you incorporated our responses in ceremony. The entire ceremony was so beautiful. I received so many compliments the day of wedding and even several weeks after wedding - I keep receiving compliments on ceremony itself. I appreciated your submitting draft of ceremony to me prior to day. I loved the fact that you worked with string trio to incorporate appropriate music, giving them a cue sheet, etc. Guest complimented ceremony stating that they loved that the ceremony was so personal, unique, lovely, different, and the list goes on. I loved the fact that you researched quotes from my favorite book and that you found poems that reflected where we were engaged (Rome, Italy). My parents and bridal party really enjoyed meeting and talking with you at both rehearsal dinner and wedding. Thank you for helping make my wedding day one of the best days of my life. I was so happy and had so much fun even during ceremony. I thought I was going to cry instead I was smiling the whole time. Thank you. lease feel free to use me as reference.
I first wanted to let you know that we received your packet. Thank you for sending for book. It is a beautiful keepsake , which we will cherish forever.
Lastly, I wanted to thank you for our beautiful wedding ceremony.
Throughout the entire process, I always knew we were in good hands with you Marguerite and the ceremony certainly lived up to all of our expectations. Our ceremony was never a stressful element because we had you guiding us along the way. Our ceremony was everything we wanted: unique, intimate, celebratory, funny and touching.
During the first meeting we had with you, we knew we had made the right choice. You listened to us and worked with us every step of the way...and it was certainly reflected in our ceremony.
Although we had many guests in attendance, they appreciated the intimacy of our wedding ceremony and many noted how polished you were as a speaker. Our photographer (who has been to many weddings) said how impressed he was with you as an officiant. Our friend and ceremony violinist expressed how much he enjoyed working with you during the process as well.
You were open to our ceremony ideas, while continually adding to them with suggestions. We were so grateful to have your unique ideas and enjoyed including these elements to our ceremony.
Thank you for all of your hard work in writing and preparing for our wedding.
We will always remember what a beautiful day it was!
