At first, Marie seemed like a very warm, loving person who cares a lot about her clients. I really thought she was going to do a great job. Unfortunately, things did not go according to plan. Marie performed the wrong ceremony at our wedding. Instead of
reading the personalized ceremony that my fiancé and I had written, she read one of her templates. The ceremony ended up being very generic, and honestly, kind of weird. She asked a random guest to come up and read an Apache love poem (no, we're not Native
American). She teased us during the ceremony about our exceptionally long engagement. When it came time to recite the (incorrect) vows, she repeatedly criticized me for not speaking loud enough, even though I was trying not to cry and make a scene in front
of everyone. I tried to whisper “This isn’t the right ceremony” to her several times throughout the ceremony, but she wasn’t paying attention to me. She was more concerned with cracking jokes and making the guests laugh. Marie has a very strong personality,
and I felt that she tried to upstage us at our own wedding! When the ceremony was over, I asked her why she didn't perform the right ceremony. She actually started arguing with my fiancé and me! She insisted that she didn't read the wrong thing, and wouldn't
admit she was mistaken until showed her the email that contained a copy of our ceremony. In the end, she gave $100 back to one of my groomsmen, and sent us an apology email. I was a little offended that she didn't offer us a full refund or even call us to
apologize. Overall, I think she's a nice person, but I would never recommend her to anyone. She needs to be more careful about reading the right ceremony, or at least be willing to admit fault and apologize when necessary. Nothing will ever change the fact
that I didn’t get to say “I do!” at my wedding, but an apology would have gone a long way.
