Felicia and James | Married in East Haven, CT


“Mary Joy was very professional, thoughtful and considerate from the beginning. She is very easy to work with and went out of her way to adjust to the wedding ceremony relocation at the last minute. Mary Joy was not only timely with the [writing] process, but was very warm and genuine in her delivery. We are extremely pleased with her services and would recommend her highly to anyone.”

Berdine and Gabby | Married in Stonington, CT


“Mary Joy was a wonderful person to have marry us. She was not only open to a lesbian wedding but also a Wiccan-influenced one. She helped us find an outdoor venue, and when we got rained out, she was flexible about moving to the courthouse. She was always professional and very sweet. We give her a five-star rating.”

Danielle and Joy | Married in Greenwich, CT


“I just wanted to thank you again for doing such a wonderful job with the ceremony. We have gotten a lot of comments from people about how nice it was and how personal it was compared to other weddings. It was exactly what we wanted.”

Beverly and Jason | Married in Madison, CT


“Working with Mary Joy was a one-of-a-kind experience. From the start we were able to choose our own ceremony and the elements we wanted in it. . . . All of these very specific and personal details made for a celebration where our love was strongly communicated and where our guests felt intimately involved.

“Everything about ‘Ceremonies of Heart’ is from the heart. Truly it is a unique ceremony option.”

Stephanie and Todd | Married in Branford, CT
