    At first, Marie seemed like a very warm, loving person who cares a lot about her clients. I really thought she was going to do a great job. Unfortunately, things did not go according to plan.

    Marie performed the wrong ceremony at our wedding. Instead of reading the personalized ceremony that my fiancé and I had written, she read one of her templates. The ceremony ended up being very generic, and honestly, kind of weird. She asked a random guest to come up and read an Apache love poem (no, we're not Native American). She teased us during the ceremony about our exceptionally long engagement. When it came time to recite the (incorrect) vows, she repeatedly criticized me for not speaking loud enough, even though I was trying not to cry and make a scene in front of everyone. I tried to whisper “This isn’t the right ceremony” several times throughout the ceremony, but she wasn’t paying attention to me. She was more concerned with cracking jokes and making the guests laugh. Marie has a very strong personality, and I felt that she tried to upstage us at our own wedding!

    When the ceremony was over, I asked her why she didn't perform the right ceremony. She actually started arguing with my fiancé and me! She insisted that she didn't read the wrong thing, and wouldn't admit she was mistaken until showed her the email that contained a copy of our ceremony. In the end, she gave $100 back to one of my groomsmen, and sent us an apology email. I was a little offended that she didn't offer us a full refund or even call us to apologize.

    Overall, I think she's a nice person, but I would never recommend her to anyone. She needs to be more careful about reading the right ceremony, or at least be willing to admit fault and apologize when necessary. Nothing will ever change the fact that I didn’t get to say “I do!” at my wedding, but an apology would have gone a long way.

    Marie T. from A CT Justice of the Peace & Minister replied to this review on November 6, 2015:

    Please let me extend a heartfelt apology. Yes, I did perform the wrong ceremony. And for that I am deeply sorry. . Though to suggest it was vastly different from what you had ended up creating using ~my work~ as the base… is unfair.

    I was actually caught off guard afterwards when you said I had performed the wrong one. I actually didn’t believe it because it had never happened with the over 1,500 ceremonies in 16 yrs. I had never heard those words before. What you construed as arguing was simply me being shocked at your words. I would never be rude to anyone EVER!!! If you google my name…never anywhere will you find anyone saying I was rude. That’s not me…that’s not my way. Surprise yes…in disbelief …completely.

    With that said I would like to share that while you may have been trying to let me know during the ceremony, I was unaware because it is my experience that most couples speak to each other during their ceremonies (and I just continue on). It has nothing to do with me...its private time for them (as this is the most exciting time in their life). So I must have assumed yours was the same. Again…Iam sincerely sorry.

    And to be honest…I feel it is a grave misrepresentation to suggest that I simply used a "template". I give all of my couples a questionnaire and from that I write all of my couples 3 completely detailed personal ceremonies. Each a different flavor of its own...highlighting personal fun information that you have shared with me in your questionnaire. I then send those 3 ceremonies that include all types of readings, blessings (non denominational) and let you do as you choose with the ceremonies  Some couples will maybe read the first one and think…excellent…we’ll go with this. Sometimes they will take a little bit from each to create a 4th ceremony . Basically, for me…it boils down to whatever you want you get!  I want all my couples thrilled  I want their guest thrilled.

    While I did make a mistake. It was not intentional and I am very sorry. I would like to mention that all of your guest came up to me afterwards, (unaware that I had not read the final draft ceremony) and complimented me on what an extroidary, fun- loving, joyful and “just like you”…heartfelt ceremony it was.
    I wish you two the very, very best. Peace! Marie

    My hubby and I were married in September of 2012 and people still talk about how our ceremony was amazingly fun and "us". I was concerned that it was too fun, but everyone loved it because it showed the personality of my hubby and myself. She helped personalize a wedding ceremony to us including sharing a pint of beer (instead of wine ceremony). Very professional and outstanding! She definitely caters to what the bride and groom desires with adding her own twist.

    Marie was perfect from the moment we met her. Warm, funny, friendly, and hilarious. The day was a dream due to both her and my handsome groom. Seriously, she takes all the stress out of the day and makes it uniquely you. ❤️

    My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Marie back in September 2012. She was the MOST amazing justice of the peace! She married us at Elihu Island in Mystic, CT. Before you read anymore, she is the best! You have to book her for your wedding! She was there for us and went above and beyond for us. She took the time to have us fill out a questionnaire and spent time getting to know us so our day would be perfect. There were many emails back and fourth and phone calls to ensure that she understood exactly what we wanted and she gave us guidelines, she was awesome! Marie has the most bubbly energetic sincere personality and she makes you feel at ease, relaxed and ready for your special day. My husband and I highly recommend her, shes amazing. Look no further and book her today!

    Marie married a couple at a wedding I recently attended. It was obvious that she took the time to get to know the couple and did her homework. Her service was heartfelt, intimate, caring, funny and best of all..just long enough.kudos Mrs. Wiley
