  • Maribel C. Mar 29, 2016
    Ms. Maria arrived on time and showed so much professionalism. She is very affordable. We loved her words for the ceremony, she had sent us the draft before the wedding. Not only were the words beautiful in English, she was also able to translate them to Spanish for my side of the family which is mostly Spanish speaking. She delivered the words beautifully with no hiccups. I'm happy that she directed my wedding and hope that she continues to get more weddings to be part of, she is so amazing and very accomodating to all requests. Thanks Ms. Maria!

    This woman is a con artist and a thief. She stole our wedding license and her "cousin" that she sent in HER place to perform the ceremony actually bit her lip to make it appear that one of my guests assaulted her! She backed her car into two of my guests, and ruined a day that cost thousands of dollars for us. NEVER EVER USE HER!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Veronica sorry that you were not satisfied with one of our Officiants. It always helps to know where we can improve in our services. I am also sorry that you were unable to have your unity sand ceremony. The material is always provided by our clients, we are solely responsible for creating the unity ceremony.

    We recently had a wedding on November 21st 2015 and hired Silverbell Weddings to preform our ceremony. We met with Maria a couple of months before and hit it off. Maria is easy to talk to and understood what we wanted. She gave great input on what we should add and what what we could do without. She was very easy to get in contact with and very professional. We wanted to write our own vows but I did not want to have to memorize it. Maria had my husband and I write how we felt about one another and how we fell in love. Maria wrote our vows for us using our words. It was beautiful and heartfelt. I really recommend Silverbell Weddings because they really get to know you.

    I had a civil marriage at our house in the backyard. Maria is absolutely extraordinary even before I had sent over the paperwork I had many questions in regards of the legal process for my last name and I decided to call her she didn't know 100% the answer but she went the extra mile and she made some phone calls for me just so I can have an accurate answer. The ceremony was much better than what I expected. It was perfect. I will highly recommend her.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Once being considered, I usually set up a consultation time to either talk over the phone or meet at a central location to see if I am a good fit for them. I want to make sure that they are comfortable with me and to assure that they get to know me instead of just having some stranger showing up to perform their ceremony. Once hired, I stay in constant contact with their needs and make myself completely available to them.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
When I got married, I had difficulty finding someone to marry me during the day other than having to go to the JP's office. So I decided to do this to help couples get married but in the comfort of their homes or choice of location without having to be crammed in a JP's office.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with all types of couples. From young, middle age, to elderly couples. I have also performed many LGBT weddings.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
My number #1 advise to my couples is always to make sure that their ceremony is about them and what they wish for it to be. Not to allow outside input pull them away from what they want. They only do this once in a life time.
