Mary took care of the Notarized papers and was kind enough to drop the envelope off at a Fed Exbox for me since I am still recovering from an automobile accident. Recommend her and her price.

Mary was AMAZING to work with. We eloped to Central Park NYC from Florida to marry and knew nothing about the area. Mary created an amazing environment for us and helped us put together the ceremony. The day was perfect and we were honored to have her share it with us. She is worth every penny. My new husband and I highly recommend her services.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing is based on the time needed, and the travel involved. Elopement specials (couples with or without witnesses) are the least expensive, and costs increases as the time required increases. Active duty military are given special consideration.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We ask questions to try an identify the type of ceremony they envision. Is it short and sweet, longer but informal, more formal with family participation? Whatever type they want, we write and personalize. The ceremony draft is emailed to the couple, and we then discuss modifications. Everyone had words they hate or love, and we can alter the ceremony to suit the couple.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I realized I spent a lot of time praying with and for people, and my passion was helping the local poor and needy. By expanding my personal ministry to include weddings and other ceremonies that people pay for, we can help more of the underserved population in our town and area.
