3 Ceremony Tips From Officiant Mary Coburn
One of our favorite officiants is Mary Coburn. We recently provided sound reinforcement for a classic duo and microphones for the ceremony of Emily and David at the Deep River Landing. Mary did an outstanding service that was not only personalized but uplifting to all the guests attending….not to mention she’s great on the microphone and wonderfully well organized!
If your looking for an officiant for your wedding ceremony we would highly recommend Mary Coburn, who is a professionally trained Lifecycle Celebrant ™, having studied the art of ceremony and ritual through the Celebrant Foundation and Institute.
Here are some tips for couples when thinking about their wedding ceremony:
Realize that the ceremony is the heart of the wedding day, therefore, it is worth your effort to find an officiant who will provide a personalized ceremony that celebrates you and your story!
The tone of your wedding ceremony sets the tone for your entire wedding day, so choose an officiant who has great energy and who can communicate effectively with a group of people. Do you like the sound of her/his voice? What training in public speaking do they have? Do you like them? All these things are important…you should really feel great about your officiant, so don’t settle for just anyone.
Your officiant should be accessible to you, listen to you, and seek to tell your story with grace, humor, truthfulness and purpose.
