"Asking Maria to officiate our wedding was hands down the BEST decision my husband and I made throughout our planning process. She exceeded any and every expectation we could have had for an officiant. We knew we wanted a less than traditional ceremony and weren’t sure where to start. Maria came to our first meeting prepared with a step by step guide to build an original, one of a kind ceremony that fit us perfectly! She made the process so easy and made sure to lay out all of our options every step of the way. While building our ceremony, Maria was supportive, thoughtful and FLEXIBLE. We threw her a curve ball by removing an entire section of the ceremony the DAY BEFORE the wedding and she was completely unfazed! Our ceremony was personal, intimate and genuine thanks to Maria’s incredible ability to captivate an audience and deliver every word with authenticity. We were told by multiple guests (some who often dread sitting through a wedding ceremony) that is was the most beautiful and engaging wedding they had ever witnessed. We were married over a year ago and we are still receiving compliments about how incredible Maria was. If you want the perfect officiant who will give you exactly what you want and more, look no further! You will be so honored to have been married by this incredible human, I know we are." -   Albert & Cierra Bader
