Wonderful Officiant

Reviewed on 12/02/2014 Erin K

We toyed with having a friend or family member marry us when we decided that we weren't going to have our ceremony in a church. The more we thought about it the more we realized that this was going to just add more to our list of things to do, write the ceremony, figure out... Read More where we get and file a license, plan the rehearsal, etc. My mom and I came across Marcia at the Lake Geneva Bridal Showcase last year and were really impressed. My mom was the one who initially started talking to her and grabbed her information. A few months later when we had to make a decision, I found her brochure and gave her a call. I knew from our initial discussion that this was going to be a good choice. There was something even about her voice that made me feel so calm and I loved it. We booked her that day and began the ceremony planning process. I ordered Marcia's book and read it front to back in a day and then had my mom read it. We loved it and again were assured she was a good choice. Seeing her face and hearing her voice put me in such a good place and that is a true gift she has. I felt so stress free the whole weekend and she performed and amazing ceremony that people are still talking about. I loved the personal touches she added. I would highly suggest Reverend Marcia Boyer to anyone looking for someone to perform a wedding in the Lake Geneva/Fontana area!

Rev. Marcia Boyer is amazing!

Reviewed on 6/24/2014 K.C. F

I can't even begin to explain how important Rev. Marcia Boyer was in making our wedding day the best day of our lives. We knew she was the right person to officiate our ceremony as soon as we met her. She is wise, kind and knows how to create a personalized wedding ceremony that... Read More you'll always remember. I wouldn't have thought that being creative would be essential to an officiant but it really is! She really made an effort to get to know us and we spent quite a bit of time with her before the ceremony discussion what we wanted and she then provided a lot of great recommendations. She crafted an amazing ceremony that told our story and engaged all of our friends and family. During the rehearsal she took charge and made sure that everyone knew where to be and what to do. She was great! On the day of the ceremony, she was the calming force that set the tone for the entire ceremony. I couldn't have asked for a better ceremony. I highly recommend Rev. Marcia.

Outstanding Officiant!

Reviewed on 10/03/2013

Our officiant for our wedding day in September was Marcia Boyer. We found her from our ceremony/reception site, as she was recommended. There were a few other recommendations so I called all of them to initially talk, figure out a price, and see if they were available. What... Read More set Marcia apart from the rest right away was that she asked about Corrie and I as a couple. She didn't just jump into our religious beliefs or hers, and she didn't just rattle off her requirements, etc. She actually talked to me and it was the easiest conversation. From that point on we signed a contract and the rest was smooth sailing. Marcia was always available to contact via phone or email and I never felt as though I was bothering her. She had a very detailed (yet easy) questionnaire to fill out for us before we met with her so that she could begin to get to know us better and to understand what we were looking for in our ceremony. She even sent us thorough instructions for how to register for a marriage license, etc. Flash forward to our rehearsal and wedding...my family could not get enough of her! She was very calm, firm NOT bossy, and got us through the rehearsal in 45 minutes. She even had a side conversation with our Aunt who was struggling during a reading for the ceremony. Our Aunt came up to us the morning after our wedding and said that Marcia gave her really great advice after the rehearsal so that she felt tons more comfortable reading for the actual ceremony...and she did do a great job!! We received so many compliments on our ceremony. Guests told us it was the most personal ceremony they had ever been too...and Corrie and I credit that to Marcia completely. She got to know us as individuals and brought those pieces into the ceremony. We never felt forced to do something. She made people laugh, cry, and smile. If you have the chance, I highly recommend investing in Marica...she will not disappoint!

Reviewed on 12/11/2015 Sabrina G

Rev. Marcia is a lovely lady. I truly enjoyed working with her. She really listens to what you want and creates a ceremony to match. I loved that she sent out a questionnaire for my husband and I to fill out that tells our story and allows us to tell her exactly what we hoped to... Read More express to our guests at our ceremony. She truly personalizes the ceremony that she writes so that it fits you. My husband and I met at Kmart and our best man and maid of honor worked there with us. It was one of our co-workers who pushed us together, and that was mentioned in our story. It received quite a few laughs because she was at the ceremony. I also liked that she has examples of many different ways to express your vows if you choose not to write your own and you are able to pick exactly which way you want to express your love. It is no lie when she says that you personalize your ceremony and get exactly what you want. After reading the questionnaire, she meets with you personally and you put together an outline of the ceremony, after the meeting she writes your ceremony and emails it to you so you are able to critique it and make any changes you wish so that your wedding day is as you imagine it to be. She even takes charge at the rehearsal and makes sure that everyone knows where to go, when to go, and how fast to go when walking down the aisle. I thought it was great that she knew exactly how long my husband and I were supposed to kiss so that everyone could get the best pictures. My only complaint is that Marcia didn't stick around for very long after the ceremony. We signed the license and got a quick picture together and then she was gone. I would have like to have had a moment to thank her for the lovely ceremony and being so great, but I didn't have the chance.
