Joel & Janis
Marianne Helgers went above for us. We had our date to marry on March 21, and as we all know, the world entered a global crisis with the Covid-19 pandemic which has changed the world around us like nothing before. Joel and I chose to cancel our ceremony for the 21st, and Marianne agreed to come instead to our home and made us legally married with just our 2 witnesses and all of us practicing social distancing, in our kitchen on the 17th. While it was not what we had planned for, Marianne agreed to come back in the summer and perform a ceremony in front of our friends and family. We appreciate that so much. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow and I'm grateful Marianne was able to seal the deal for us prior to the country shutting down. Joel & Janis March 2020

Marianne Helgers officiated our wedding in November 2018 and did an amazing job. Right from the initial consultation, we could tell she was passionate about her role and making the ceremony as perfect for us as possible. She took the time to learn about us and our families, and helped us incorporate that to make a truly personalized ceremony. The evidence speaks for itself from how many compliments we received from guests. We would most definitely recommend Marianne! Josh & Ellen Nov 2018
