Maria was amazing! She provides a level of detail your ordinary officiant would not. She helped us stay organized; her help was almost equal to working with a coordinator. She wrote us a beautiful ceremony that we will remember forever. We had many guests and vendors comment on how amazing Maria and her ceremony for us was. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to have a magical wedding ceremony.

Maria was an AMAZING officiant. From beginning to end, we always felt like she was on our side. She was such a helpful and amazing guide throughout the entire process. We LOVED our ceremony and she was the arrow that pointed us in the right direction. She truly cares about her work and her clients. We would recommend her to anyone and everyone to be a part of their big day!

I am SO incredibly thankful that Maria was part of our ceremony!! This lovely lady is so genuine and thoughtful. Guests continue to compliment her! Maria dedicated so much time to us, from helping us write our vows, to the logistics of the ceremony itself. I highly recommend Maria and cannot thank her enough for all that she did for us!!

My husband and I definitely made the right choice when we decided to have Maria officiate our wedding. With Maria, you get much more than just a person to marry you. She was helpful from the very beginning offering tips on how to get our marriage license, make our ceremony flow better, pick out readings, and connect with other vendors. We ended up finding our DJ through her recommendation, which was a big help because we live of of state. She got back to every email promptly. Maria has a cheery personality and she was a great presence to have both at the rehearsal and at our wedding. Maria went the extra mile and made sure everything went smoothly the day of, she even kept my husband from seeing me before the ceremony. Maria is thoughtful and organized and really helped us to perfect our ceremony and make it so authentic to who we are as a couple. She also took some beautiful photos! Our family and friends all commented on how lovely, sweet, and professional Maria was. She even got my MIL's stamp of approval which is no easy feat! I would recommend Maria to anyone, she really exceeded all our expectations.

Maria took charge and made the whole wedding happen! She was always pleasant and easy to work with. She planned around our busy schedules and kept track of all the details we hadn't even considered. She is filled with ideas to make the wedding ceremony perfect, and to make it reflect exactly what you want. The wedding itself was presented beautifully. Ten thumbs up for Maria and I highly recommend her.

We first saw Maria in action at a friend's wedding in Maine. My fiance (at the time) and I both absolutely loved the ceremony she performed. We started talking to her about doing our ceremony out in Colorado. Thankfully it worked out! Maria is the epitome of professionalism and is extremely organized and personable. She helped us create the most beautiful ceremony and helped us think through everything. I was honored that she was a part of our wedding and would highly recommend her.

Maria was such a pleasure to work with and made the "getting married" process extremely easy and fun. She helped us customize a ceremony that complimented us as a couple with very personal touches. (She also took beautiful photos on our wedding day that she shared with us afterwards, which I thought was such a beautiful touch!) We had so many guests compliment our ceremony and officiant and we couldn't have asked for a better person to be by our side on our special day.

With such short notice she pulled things together and helped with the process of getting things put in order so we could have things go smoothly. Great Service.

Al and I could not have been happier with Maria and the service provided through A Sweet Start. We wanted a casual low key private ceremony in a soectacular setting and got everything we hoped for and more. She is awesome and we highly recommend her and A Sweet Start.

Maria was great to work with... always enthusiatic, she was happy to make our day the way exactly the way we wanted it. It really was a perfect, an unforgettable day - we had a small, private ceremony in a beautiful location, under blue skies, on a hillside overlooking the ocean. Thank you Maria!

My biggest fear in writing this review is that it won't fully capture how absolutely wonderful it was to work with Maria! We clicked instantly when we first video-chatted with her. Her genuine passion and excitement for weddings comes through in everything she does. She really listened to us and got to know us so that our personalities came through in our ceremony. Several our our guests commented on how unique and sincere they thought the ceremony was, and what a wonderful job Maria did. And she was more than happy to give us ideas and suggestions to help the planning since we were planning our wedding from afar. We absolutely recommend Maria, you will not be disappointed!

Marie is absolutely amazing. From the minute we viewed her video on her website to the first time we met her in person to our wedding, itself, we connected with her. She is organized, professional, warm, and down-to-earth. I am so glad that we found her!
