Review: The PERFECT Wedding Officiant!!!

  • We went on a family vacation/wedding to Los Angeles and got married on the beach in Malibu. We could not have picked a better, more thoughtful wedding officiant then Mary Jean from Ceremony of the Heart. From the very first phone call to MJ, Staci knew she was the one we wanted! She was very organized and help us plan every detail of the ceremony including a personal time for us after the ceremony on the beach to read some "love thoughts" we wrote to each other. She even helped us get a photographer that took some awesome photos of us and our family. She was very considerate of this being "our" day and helped us plan things that we hadn't thought of. She allowed us many revisions of the ceremony and added some very personal touches of her own. We could not have imagined the day, ceremony, and beach being so perfect for our wedding day. Without MJ it wouldn't have been as perfect, we couldn't have made a better choice. Do yourself a favor and have her do your ceremony too!!

  • Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? It was the night before our wedding date, we were counting on the county to conduct our ceremony, but the universe had other plans. We’d been looking for an officiant on-line, and we came across Mary Jean Valente, what a blessing!!! Mary Jean Officiated our wedding ceremony June 2009. With one nights notice Mary Jean provided love, passion, a personal story, and top-notch attention, as if she’d known us all our lives. Mary Jean exceeded our expectation, from the tone in her voice to the message she delivered; this day could not have been possible without her. Our dream wedding was a perfect way to start our marriage. Mary Jean Valente will continue to be a part of our family as we started our union through her. Thank You Mary Jean Valente Much love and appreciation Justin & Pamela OBrien

  • Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Mary Jean Valente at A Ceremony of the Heart is the Best Choice we made and we are so thrilled at the outcome!!!! She made us feel so comfortable and let us know she really cared that we were happy with her services and that we enjoyed our own wedding. She was so patient, listened, I mean really listened to what we had to say and never never rushed us. On the day of our wedding she arrived early and also was so kind to us, our famiiies and our friends!!!
  • What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? Mary Jean added a greeting in both Spanish and Italian which truly honored our families and for my grandmother who did not speak English, this was so meaningful! When she performs the ceremony she does it with so much love and gives meaning to every word. Also, she knew how to handle our little flower girl who kept fidgeting...in the most graceful way and without missing a beat, Mary Jean settled her and the rest of us and put everyone at ease...she is amazing and obviously knows what she is doing no matter what happens.
  • How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? Mary Jean gave us lots of options on how to decide what we wanted in the ceremony...she made everything so easy. One of the things we loved most was that she asked each of us a question and then had us send our answer to her privatly so we could hear the answer for the first time along with our guests during the ceremony....this was so moving and everyone felt so included. Mary Jean also takes time to hear about how we met, and how we got engaged so she could weave this into our ceremony.
  • Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? Our families love Mary Jean so much, they have invited her to our family functions.. Mary Jean is naturally warm and knows how to connect with people and you can tell she treats everyone with respect so at the rehearsal and ceremony she interacts with family and guests and everyone feels welcome..One of the comments we got and keep getting is that Mary Jean has the most beautiful voice and it made the ceremony that much more beautiful. Her voice is so calming and serene, it adds a magical quality to the ceremony and also helped us feel so calm. Mary Jean is absolutely the very very BEST!!

Review: Mary Jean Valente is the Most Warm and Caring Officiant

  • Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? From the moment we first spoke on the phone, I could feel that Mary Jean Valente is Warm and Caring and Professional. She listens deeply to what you say and with her years of experience has answers and suggestions for whatever we asked. I loved that she gave us options and gently guided us in our choices. She takes time with you and makes you feel so very important and we could tell she loves what she does and truly cares. She let us know that she realizes what a bid deal the wedding day is and that she also knows what a privilege it is for her to conduct the ceremony.
  • What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? On the morning of our wedding Mary Jean called both of us to wish us a happy wedding day and remind us to enjoy the day and congratulate us. Believe it or not that call helped both of us to feel even more confident..Mary Jean arrives well in advance of the start time of the ceremony, comes to visit with you, both bride and Groom again, helping you to feel relaxed and confident. She has a sweet sense of humour and knows how to make you laugh, again helping you to relax. One of the very best things she did, was when we came down the aisle and arrived in front of her, she spoke to us privatly for a moment, giving us little tips and again, helping us to relax with a little laughter and when we were ready we began. Those few moments really helped us to settle down, connect with each other and then we really were able to actually enjoy the ceremony. This woman has magic!
  • How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? Mary Jean custom designs every ceremony and told us from the beginning that she suits her style to the way we would work best. She took time with us in our very first meeting, knew all the right questions to ask and helped us learn things about ourselves we had not even realized. All we had to provide was the amount of energy and attention we wanted to devote to creating our ceremoy and she did the rest.
  • Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? Amazingly, we still hear from our guests about how much they felt included in the ceremony..Mary Jean told us that our guests are there to witness and feel the love that we have and to contribute their loving support. Our guests, all of them, keep commenting on how gorgeous and calming Mary' Jean's voice is and how beautifully she delivers the ceremony, with real feeling..they also mentioned that our ceremony was so personal, and felt so much like us....they loved it!
