Beautiful ceremony...

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Marie’s ceremony was very heartfelt and sincere, and since it was only my fiance, myself and Marie in the vineyard... having her truly care about us and be excited for us made it that much more perfect. She was extremely flexible with our short time frame (just over two weeks ahead of time) and random time of day (11am on a Thursday)….which was greatly appreciated. We couldn’t have asked for anything more.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Marie not only officiated our ceremony, but she was our photographer as well, even climbing over rock walls to get that perfect shot of us.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

With just over two weeks between when we found Marie and our wedding, she was able to put together the perfect ceremony. We loved one of the readings so much we used it in our ceremony with our friends and family a month later in NY.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Because it was just us, we showed the video to all our family and friends from home, all of which couldn't believe they missed such a sweet and beautiful ceremony.

A CT Justice of the Peace&Minister Marie T. Wiley

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Marie was amazing to work with, very friendly, warm and energetic.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

When we forgot the rings she really came trough and made the ceremony very endearing and different by deciding to use my inlaws rings in their place. Our inlaws and guests loved this solution. She really came through by making an awkward situation into a memorable and meaningful one.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We added a wine cermony, a remembrance to my father who had passed and some readings that were meaningful to us. marie was very easy to work with and went with the flow through our many ceremony changes.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

All of my guests loved Marie. They can't say enough good things about her. She has really great energy and was perfect for our wedding.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Marie took in what she learned about us during the rehearsal dinner and incorporated it into the ceremony, which was a nice touch.

A Joyful Celebrant

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Marie is so full of joy, she simply radiates positive energy and enthusiasm for weddings. She has an incredible mix of experience, knowledge and playfulness. There's nothing rote about Marie. We could tell she truly enjoys her work, and wants to spread joy. We also had the sense that she knows both how to create a wonderful wedding day, and how to help a couple envision a lasting marriage, with the humor and flexibility to endure the inevitable challenges that will arise after the wedding day.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

We had a small ceremony and a dinner at home, and did a lot of the preparation for the party ourselves. When Marie arrived the day of the wedding, she was more than willing to help set a table that was still in need of a few forks. It was a small gesture, but other officiants might have been too high and mighty to pitch in on a menial task. Not Marie. She was there for us in every way.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Marie did a wonderful job of creating a ceremony based in the traditional "dearly beloved" roots, weaving in humorous anecdotes and stories from our lives. She suggested a wide range of readings and prayers, which helped us personalize the ceremony. She was also very open to our edits, suggestions and changes.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Everyone commented on how wonderful the ceremony was. They also noted how personable and friendly Marie is. Her emphasis from the start was on celebrating, and she carried that through completely.

Marie met with us, got to know us. She made you feel like you were her number one priority.

Maybe 2 people in my family were not married in a church so she had a tough room. They all commented on how personal, warm and lovely the ceremony was. She won them over.

Wedding for a Japanese couple

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Marie gave us great personal touches during our wedding planning and on the wedding day. She made our wedding so memorable.

Our wedding was a just-two-of-us wedding, and no guests. But Marie pulled whatever available together wonderfully to make our wedding cheerful with full of love of love.

We provided Marie with our stories and background via questionnaires and e-mail. We met her in a coffee shop to get to know each other. That is why we felt so comfortable when we saw her at our wedding.

Want an amazing, taylor fitted Ceremony? Marie is the one for you.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

She took the time to sit down with us and learn about us: our live, our dreams, what makes us who we are, so she could bring that to the ceremony. All this, mind you,after having a medical emergency the day before. Talk about above & beyond!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Marie brought her shining presence and joy to the ceremony, but more than that she helped us mold the ceremony to make it our own. It was what she allowed US to add that made it special.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Marie sent us a questionnaire to fill out and then talked to us about it. We also stayed in close contact via email.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

They loved it. People came up to us all night saying they had never expected to be so touched by a ceremony but this had left a lasting effect. We strongly recommend Marie T Wiley.

August beach wedding

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Everything. The best thing about Marie leading up to the wedding was how accessible she was. She helped us every step of the way and not just on the ceremony planning. She was a great resource for other vendors as well. On the day of, we had talked about the timing of everything and our transportation was late and uninformed about directions, which made us all more late. Marie couldn't have been more calming about it all - she really saved me from getting stressed about it!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Her attitude was the same in our phone calls, in our in person meeting with her and in front of 300 of our closest friends and family. Her personality really captured the event and how close we feel to everyone there. And her way with kids was amazing. My husband has three young sons and she included them and made them feel comfortable every step of the way. They still ask about her!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We filled out a questionnaire of information about who we were, what was important to us, etc. And while we were open in that, you never know how much a person can glean from that paper. We followed that with an in person meeting with Marie (the two of us plus Mike's three boys were invited to that meeting). At that meeting, we just shot the breeze. Through those two avenues and a couple of additional phone calls and emails, we felt like Marie was part of the crowd at our rehearsal dinner and at the wedding itself. She was a home run.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

I can't tell you how many people told us it was the most incredible ceremony. I think they picked up on the rapport that we had with Marie and realized that she was more than just an officiant to us. I think she is so flexible that I could recommend her to anyone without reservation - she is fantastic!

The Perfect Ceremony

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

There is nothing that can make a couple feel more comfortable than to have their ceremony and vows written just for them. In addition to providing this customized service, Marie exudes confidence and joy in her work which is highly contagious.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Marie provided endless resources for poetry, literature, references, readings and personal observations that were very touching. It is Marie's ability to reach out and connect with the bridal couple that makes her Justice of the Peace services unique.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Marie required us to do our homework too. She provided a detailed questionnaire that asked about family, professions, likes and dislikes but more importantly it asked thought provoking questions about us as a couple. Working on this together was very meaningful.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

As we looked out to our guests during the ceremony, we were thrilled to see rapt attention and knowing smiles on all faces. Our guests felt a personal connection to our ceremony and Marie's delivery was wonderful. She makes everyone feel as if they've known her for years. All comments were positive. Guests asked if we wrote the ceremony, marveled at the personal touches and asked for copies of readings.

Marie was just what we needed!!!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Marie was incredably accomondating, easy to be with, genuinely interested in making sure our day was super and it was. All thru the process she called, emailed etc. to see if there was anything else she could do to help me out. She sent this really funny reminder of our upcoming day the week before the ceremony and was just there for us 24/7. I knew if I had a problem I could go to Marie. She's the best Minister/ JOP around!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

The ceremony was more than I ever anticipated. It was so gentle and easy...and fun and that's the part I never expected. They always look so stiff. But not with Marie. She made us completely comfortable.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Marie first came to visit me...to make sure I was relaxed and looking forward to the big moment. She mingled w/all the brides maids, spoke w/my Mom & Dad giving them a few laughs. Marie is simply the best person you could ever want to perform your ceremony.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

My guest were so wowed at the ceremony. I cannot tell you how many guest said that this was the best wedding they had ever been too. They said the ceremony itself was just like us and that is in no small part of Marie's doing. She took our information and wove it into a beautiful expression of what we wanted our guest to see!
