Wedgewood Champion’s at the Retreat

Your wedding IS your ceremony. Think about that for a minute. All of this work and time and money you are spending is to celebrate what you do during the ceremony – officially declaring your marriage! So let’s make your ceremony about the two of you: Your traditions, your priorities, your love story.

As part of your package with Wedgewood Champion’s at the Retreat, Wedgewood Glen Ivy, or Wedgewood Indian Hills, you get all this included in your Wedgewood Package with Ministry if you two select me as your Officiant:

  • A ceremony planning session about a month before your wedding over the phone or via video chat (Skype or Google Hangouts) so I can get to know who you are as a couple, your love story, your beliefs and traditions (or upgrade to an in-person meeting for $50, payable directly to me);
  • Love story “homework” that each of you email to me separately so I can learn your individual voices as well;
  • As much email and texting as you need to craft your ceremony and confirm details;
  • Assistance in choosing or writing your vows;
  • A PDF copy of your ceremony emailed to you within a week of the ceremony planning session for you to review, edit, and approve;
  • A simple $50 add-on (payable to me) should you want me present at your rehearsal;
  • I arrive, professionally suited, 30 minutes before your ceremony to assist with coordination so everything goes smoothly;
  • Your custom wedding ceremony;
  • The signing and filing of your marriage license with the County;
  • A follow-up email with details on how to acquire your marriage certificate and assistance with how to change your name(s) (if relevant).

Minister Marie.. wow! If you’re thinking about booking her, stop thinking, start doing.

Originally, we wanted to ask one of her friends to be our officiant. We thought it would be more personal, more intimate. Turns out, it’s not that easy! We couldn’t decide on the right person, and then what if that person wasn’t very comfortable with public speaking, what if they got all nervous and messed up? After much debate, we decided to book an officiant, giving up on the idea that it would be “personal” and just going for the pro.

Well, were we wrong. Minister Marie made it so personal and so intimate, everyone at the wedding thought she WAS a friend! People were asking her how she knew us, wondering how long we’ve known her for. She made the ceremony so romantic and perfect for us, it really was as if we’d known her for years….

We could not have been happier with our choice to use Marie for our special day. The ceremony set the tone for the entire wedding, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. It was perfect, she was perfect. PERFECT!

Wow! I can’t believe we have been married over a month now! This is a long overdue THANK YOU to our amazing Minister Marie for giving us the most perfect wedding ceremony we ever could have imagined. Minister Marie got to know us about a month before our ceremony, she talked with us over the phone for an hour and had us each fill out a questionnaire about our relationship. She was so down to earth, easy to talk to, she listened and learned our story and created a very personal ceremony. After the wedding so many people asked us how long we knew her, the way she spoke about us and our relationship, people thought we knew her for years. We were all so touched by her words! If anyone is getting married and needs a Minister, Marie is definitely one to call!!! Thank you Minister Marie!

Words cannot describe the gratitude I have for choosing Minister Marie to officiate our wedding on July 3, 2016. From the day we first Skyped with her for the consultation till the day we actually met on the wedding day, she has been a beacon of light filled with kindness, patience, concern and love. She customized our ceremony to meet our needs. Our wedding ceremony was heartfelt, funny and to the point. She took the time to get to know us, and was very flexible to incorporate all the elements that we wanted which made the ceremony simply perfect and a true reflection of us. Even my Catholic parents were impressed with her. I would definitely recommend Minister Marie. She is excellent at what she does. We would definitely use her in the future for our vow renewals.
