I hope you and your family are safe, healthy, and well. I am reaching out to you to say hello and to thank you once again for the service you performed for me and my wife Courtney on April 10, 2010. Tomorrow, we will celebrate 10 years of marriage.
My wife and I, as well as our family and friends in attendance, still talk about how special and meaningful the service was that you provided. You were able to tell our love story in a way that was personal, purposeful, and captivating. We experienced laughter, reflection, and appreciation throughout the service and those memories are still relevant to this day. Your level of detail and use of symbolism were also key takeaways for us. You’ll be happy to know we still use the ring bowl you provided to place our wedding rings in each night.
Since that beautiful day, we have grown together and expanded into a family. Our daughter Cai turned 9 in January and our son Christopher will turn 6 in May. You may recall that we are from the Midwest (IL and MI) but lived in Jacksonville, FL at the time of our wedding. We relocated back up North in April of 2012 and reside in Normal, IL.
It is wonderful viewing your website, reading your testimonials (including ours), and seeing how you have continued to provide this gift and piece of yourself with others. Thank you again for blessing us on our special day.
Christopher, April 2020
All the best, George and Kristina, October 6, 2014

From the first moment I read the Meaningful Moments profile, I just knew that she was the one for us and meeting Marguerite in person quickly confirmed my instincts…she has the warmest smile and the most soothing voice, and her professionalism and dedication to her role as a Celebrant were immediately evident. Among the many things that stood out for us, we appreciated that she shared our values and helped us celebrate them by letting us share with her who we are, how we love, and why it was so important to have these things represented at our wedding.
Marguerite helped make planning our ceremony so easy — she guided us through the process and lent a helping hand (and the voice of experience!) when we needed it most. She was incredibly organized and communicative, we never had to wonder where we stood with things! Of all the parts of wedding planning, this was the most important (other than finding the right person!) and thankfully, the most rewarding.
Our guests (and other vendors!) have repeatedly complimented us on how incredible our ceremony was, and we even had someone ask if Marguerite would be willing to travel to Colorado when their daughter gets married!
Marguerite is both a gift and a blessing — we are so proud she is part of our wedding story! We couldn’t have asked for a more exceptional wedding ceremony.

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!

Thank you Marguerite! Love, Evon & Kent
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!
Warmly, Diana Cirone Tremblay
