A Little Bit About Rev. Mary-Rose:

It is an honor and a blessing to preside over and witness the union of two souls.  More than a means to make a living, joining two people in the name of love is my Dharma – a personal calling to serve.  I am an ordained interfaith, non-denominational minister who doesn’t just study but actively participates in the world’s religions.  I don’t just talk the talk, I walk the walk.  It is not unusual to find me participating in services at a temple, synagogue, mosque, church, out in nature or in a yoga studio.  I am actively involved at the United Nations representing Tripura Foundation, an ECOSOC Accredited NGO with the United Nations.

Where do I begin?! Rev. Mary-Rose was Incredible. I cannot say enough positive things to express how fortunate we were to have her officiate our ceremony. When we started discussing how we wanted to get married, we agreed we did not want to have a religious ceremony since our religions were different - and thought it might be best to have someone experienced. We began our search using weddingwire – where we found Rev M-R who already had great reviews. On our first encounter, she was extremely professional, detail oriented, warm and understanding. We felt she really took the time to understand our story and map out what we wanted our wedding to look like. We did not have a conventional wedding and Rev M-R, helped us customize the wedding that we wanted. As we also are interfaith and intercultural she also asked us if we wanted to include anything from our culture/religions (we are Filipino and Jewish) and she already knew about the wedding traditions of each of our cultures - and gave us suggestions. After that we knew we wanted to have Rev M-R officiate our ceremony. During the whole process of preparing for the wedding, Rev M-R was the one who got us on track, followed-up, had a check list with all the details, and even connected with our venue and our photographer to ensure the logistics. The day of the ceremony, Rev M-R met with our wedding party and reassured that everything would go perfectly - which it did! During the ceremony, it went as we imagined it would. Rev M-R's delivery was touching and inspiring, and her words really moved the audience. Honestly there was so much adrenaline pumping it was all a blur, but afterwards various members of our family came over and told us that Rev M-R was amazing, and that it was really a beautiful procession. In the end, honestly, it could not have gone better. Mary-Rose was reliable, professional, and really dedicated to her trade (and as you will see - is very passionate about what she does).

Rev. Mary-Rose Engle officiated our wedding last weekend and we were very pleased with the results. We were unfortunate in that our own pastor was unable to officiate our wedding and were left stranded without an officiant less than a month left before the wedding. We contacted Rev. Engle through one of the wedding sites and she quickly responded. We finally met with her and she took the time to get to know us and got a feel for our relationship. We gave our religious preferences and she pinpointed exactly how religious our ceremony should be. In the days that followed, she sent us a template of the ceremony, which she presented in a very professional manner. She asked all the appropriate questions and made all the changes we requested. On the days leading to the wedding, she asked for our vows, reviewed them and let us know whether or not they were cohesive. She was also able to coordinate with the other vendors of our wedding to make sure that everything went by smoothly. On the day of the wedding, she showed up an hour prior to the ceremony, she led a small rehearsal for our wedding party and then we were on our way down the aisle. Once at the altar, Rev. Engle's words were delivered clearly and intelligently, well-paced and moving, and were well received by our audience. She was able to perfectly incorporate our religious beliefs without sounding overly religious, which is exactly what were aiming for. Overall, she was a delightful person to work with, she was very professional with her duties and presented herself in an appropriate manner. If the situation presented itself where I would need to recommend an officiant for a friend's wedding, I would highly certainly recommend Rev. Mary-Rose Engle.

Rev. Mary-Rose was recommended to my husband and I by our wedding coordinator for our wedding on 10.7.16 at the Greenpoint Loft in Brooklyn. She was very responsive and incredibly thorough. Since we live in CT and she is based in New York, it was hard to schedule a time to meet, so our first "meeting" was via Skype. Rev. Mary-Rose walked us through the process, explained a lot to us, and asked us personal questions that would help her craft the perfect ceremony. At the end of that initial Skype meeting, she encouraged us to go in the other room to talk over whether or not we would like to book her, but we didn't need to - my husband and I booked her right on the spot. From that point forward, we had (what I consider) the perfect amount of communication. She sent us a worksheet to fill out about our preferences and other info for our ceremony. She sent TONS of sample readings for us to choose from, but in the end we chose our own, and she was more than happy to include those. I only had to change one minor thing on the rough draft of the ceremony she sent. It was as if she had known us for years. Rev. Mary-Rose was constantly professional, calm, and organized. Our wedding ceremony was perfect; she spoke in a tone that made people want to listen, and she planned for it to be just long enough to include all the important aspects, but not so long that it would bore people. During cocktail hour, she mingled with our guests to get their opinions on the ceremony. For weeks after the wedding, I had guests telling me how wonderful Rev. Mary-Rose was. My mom even asked if I wrote the ceremony myself, that's how personal it was. I highly recommend Rev. Mary-Rose as a wedding officiant, whether you are looking for a religious ceremony or a non-religious one (as was the case of my wedding). Her calm personality and expertise in her field are unmatched.

Rev Mary- Rose was amazing. She was very polite and reliable. She was very informative and soothing. My Central Park wedding became a fairy tale with words of an angle. At times I felt as her words were sent from up above. They were so loving and beautiful. She was also kind enough to include my daughter during the ceremony and had every single person in tears of joy. Thank you, Rev Mary-Rose for a a wonderful magical ceremony.

Words cannot express how truly blessed we feel to have had Rev. Mary-Rose officiate our ceremony. From the very beginning we knew she would make our ceremony one to remember, and she went above and beyond our expectations! Rev. Engle told our story in such a unique way and the whole room was filled with love. So many of our guests commented on how much they loved our ceremony. You’ll have a great experience with Rev. Mary-Rose as your officiant. Thanks again Mary-Rose for making our day so beautiful!

Reverend Mary-Rose was a pleasure to work with. My sister-in-law recommended her because she went to a wedding where Rev. Mary-Rose was officiating and it just really stuck with her as a great ceremony. My husband and I were so lucky to have Rev. Mary-Rose as our officiant. It really made our wedding special. Rev. Mary-Rose has a loving and caring manner and can really see the entire purpose of the ceremony - to entertain guests while describing your special love story with everyone. We had so many compliments on our actual ceremony. She is a great story teller and was able to sum up our experiences in nice interesting points for everyone to hear. My husband actually shed a tear when he first read our ceremony. And so did a bunch of guests at our wedding. Good tears. I'm so happy Rev. Mary-Rose was a part of our special day. She is a delight to work with, very professional and warm. The ceremony really is a big deal at the wedding, so please go with Rev. Mary-Rose. Also Rev. Mary-Rose is accommodating to every religion, I found this helpful in our situation to include everyone's beliefs.

Extremely professional and very warm. I interviewed about 10 officiants for my wedding and when I spoke to Mary-Rose, I knew immediately that she was the right choice. She has a genuine love for her work, which carries over in to the planning and the ceremony. She went through everything beforehand and gave us several options to customize the ceremony just enough to make it special. After we met with her, we felt that we were in excellent hands and the weight of finding the right person for such a critical part of the wedding was lifted. Highly recommended - a great choice!

Mary-Rose's officiant service was perfect! She was attentive to all our needs and requests to tailor our wedding. From our initial meeting, we were completely confident and we are so glad we chose her. The ceremony was warm and personal, and we could tell that our guests were hanging on Mary-Rose's every word as she spoke. During dinner and drinks later, many people told us what a special ceremony it was and how well it was delivered. We felt that Mary-Rose went above and beyond in planning with us and offered expert advice with any questions we had and in anticipating the timing of things during the moments before and after the ceremony. We would recommend Mary-Rose to anybody looking for a warm and expertly delivered ceremony.

When I was looking for a wedding officiant, I simply entered my zip code. Rev. Mary-Rose Engle immediately caught my eye with her genuine smile and 5 star reviews across the board! They were 100% true! Mary-Rose was very professional, extremely nice and wonderful to deal with. She picked up all our phone calls and responded promptly. She arrived early on the day of the ceremony and went over last minute things with us. We needed non denominational ceremony with standard vows and she did such a wonderful job delivering the speech at the wedding. It was so beautiful, that many of our guests mentioned how touched they were! Mary-Rose made our wedding ceremony very special and definitely exceeded our expectations. We would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a professional, supportive, enthusiastic and genuine wedding officiant. Again, thank you Rev. Mary-Rose so much for being helpful, cooperative and making our day even more special!

Mary-Rose was fantastic. We got married in New York but we live in Perth Western Australia about as far from New York as you could get. You would think this would be hard to organize but it was a breeze. We were able to skype with Mary-Rose when ever we needed. She made the process so easy and stress free,we had the most amazing day!
