Margaret is awesome!! The best! She loves what she does!Aug 8, 2018VerifiedMargaret Y.'s reply
Aw thanks Ashley. Your wedding was a blast, and all the interesting guests made it really fun. I do love my job!
Margaret was wonderful to work with and provided us a personalized wedding ceremony. She has a sparkling personality and we received many compliments. She met with us many months beforehand to get to know us a bit and explain her process and get a feel for what we wanted. She listened to any feedback given and made appropriate changes to the readings. She played such a big role in our special day and I wouldn't have had it any other way!Oct 24, 2017VerifiedMargaret Y.'s reply
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! You and Bryan were so comfortable to work with that my job was easy. It was a memorable evening, and starting off with an upbeat personal ceremony sets the tone for the entire night. I am happy to have provided you with the wedding of your dreams. Best Wishes Always.
she did a wonderful job and would recommend her to any friends who are getting married.Sep 20, 2016Verified
We are still waiting for her services on our wedding day.Aug 8, 2018VerifiedMargaret Y.'s reply
Thanks Ronnie! I promise to do my best to give you and Heather the wedding of your dreams :-)
Nothing could have made this a better day. Thanks so much Margaret for being part of our special day. I would highly recommend you to anyone getting married. Margaret met with us before we got married and we knew right when we met her that she was our number one pick for our special day. She loves to personalize the ceremony and she even got my husband a copy of our vows to frame for me as a one year wedding anniversary gift.Dec 29, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The quote I give you is what it is. The only reason to change it is to add a rehearsal. If you requested a rehearsal in the beginning, then it is included in the quote. I require a 50% deposit to hold the date. The balance due should be paid in full before the ceremony. After the ceremony is for celebration, not business! My fee may be more than some other officiants, and less than others. but in some instances, an experienced professional is worth the higher fee!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After a couple expresses an interest in learning more about my unique service, we schedule a meeting. I am retired, and this is my only obligation, and my schedule is FLEXIBLE!! I can meet with you based on your work hours. We can meet at a casual restaurant or coffee shop that is located halfway between our homes. If you are out of state, we can easily do a phone interview. At the meeting, I share my ceremony outline and answer all questions you have. I also have questions to ask the couple about their expectations, and determine if I can meet their needs. The couple have the option of hiring me right then and there, or get back to me with their decision. I do not reserve a date without a deposit.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am retired from the food and beverage business after 40 + years. That is a lifetime of working with the public and public speaking. I have worked for many upscale hotels in the banquet department, covering special events and occasions. It was a high pressure position at some times, but I learned how to maintain composure through difficult situations. Five years ago I became legal to perform marriages in the state of Minnesota. After much research, I came up with a beautiful ceremony that flows from one element to another effortlessly. I can alter it to be religious or non religious. And now, after 100 + weddings with satisfied brides and grooms, I have this fine tuned!!
