Rev Ryan was absolutely amazing. We were so delighted that such a wonderful person were part of a big day. The ceremony in 2 languages was the best experience for both families and ourselves. Thank you for everything!

Em Ryan was was an absolute miracle on our special day. My husband and I decided to elope on our trip to Ireland and Em stepped up with incredibly short notice to do our ceremony. She was professional and reliable, she stayed in constant contact leading up to our day and made sure we approved everything. She blended a religious and civil ceremony for my husband and I and it was beyond our expectations. She more than delivered and I could not recommend her more. She made us feel like friends, which made our ceremony even more special.

The Roving Reverend was the celebrant at our wedding in Kenmare on 17th June 2017. From the start she was collaborative, fun and easy to work with, coming up with interesting ideas and rituals and not afraid to mix things up. She always took our feedback on board as well. A small point, but setting up a WhatsApp group between the three of us made things very easy, and she was always responsive. All of this pales, however, to her role on the actual wedding day – she was integral to the event. She combined authority and warmth in just the right mix – guests felt we must have known her for years, and that it was one of the most moving ceremonies they had been to. We highly recommend Reverend Ryan!

Very friendly and professional! I had to reschedule the ceremony due to technical difficulties and Reverend Ryan had no problem doing so. She came to our home on time and the ceremony performed was beautiful. Thank you!

Mary was everything you’d want in an officiant. Very communicative beforehand, affordable, she showed up on time, she was impeccably dressed, well-spoken, calm, cool and collected and conducted the ceremony perfectly. She makes you want to get married again and again!

Reverend Ryan was outstanding! She worked with us to create the perfect ceremony script and readings! Loved the fact that she was very informative and gave us many different suggestions on what we should do. She was very responsive and answered all my questions. And to top it all off she spoke spanish which was very important to me since half my family doesnt speak english, and by her suggesting and reading a passage in spanish made it all come together and everyone felt part of the ceremony. Thank you Reverend Ryan for being part of our special day!

Reverend Ryan was wonderful! She was very fast with responding to emails or calls when we had questions. She took all of our wants and needs into account when creating our wedding ceremony. Despite us (bride and groom!) being late, and the wind whipping at our beach wedding, Reverend Ryan conducted a beautiful ceremony that people are still talking about. We can not thank her enough for marrying us!

Mary was absolutely wonderful. She paid attention to everything my husband and I said we wanted for our ceremony. gave us several options to choose from, all very much in the realm of what we wanted. She was unable to do a rehearsal with us but made absolutely sure that we had a copy of the ceremony for the venue. She even took all my last minute emails and responded promptly.

Thank you to Reverend Ryan for helping to make our wedding ceremony so wonderful! We were looking for a non-denominational officiant and searched Wedding Wire and the Knot. When I reached out to Reverend Ryan, she was very prompt in getting back to me and setting up a time to meet. Once we met with her, we both loved her instantly and even though we just met her, it was like we had known her for much longer. Her personality is so warm and bubbly, and it truly carried into her officiant skills! She discussed many options for our ceremony with us, then allowed my husband and I to pick and choose our favorite elements of what we had discussed, to tailor our ceremony to exactly what we wanted. Overall, we could not have been more pleased with how our ceremony turned out! Thank you Reverend Ryan!

We had a very pleasant experience with Reverend Ryan. She listen to our ideas and was very patient with us. I was away from home for two months before our wedding and Reverend Ryan answered all my questions and concerns via email with no problems. We had a sweet little wedding at Twin Lights and she even brought a little speaker, so we could have music during our ceremony. She made our day very nice and exciting. She gave us choices for the wedding ceremony and we picked one that appealed to us. She is super sweet and caring. I would recommend her to anyone who is getting married. She is a very nice lady:) She made our event stress-free, just like we wanted.

Reverend Ryan was excellent! My new husband and I work very odd, long hours. Reverend Ryan was able to arrange meetings around our schedules. She was able to recommend many interesting elements to add to our wedding ceremony. Through talking with her we created a ceremony that really expressed who we are as a couple, and included our family into it as well. Reverend Ryan was professional, and delivered the perfect ceremony! I could not recommend her more! She was able to be flexible when we had a ceremony site change as well. Despite not being able to physically meet her before the ceremony, due to our schedules, I felt like I already knew her on our wedding day. She even called us 2 days before to help calm our nerves and review the ceremony. She is wonderful!

Reverend Ryan was, in a word, perfect. She was a consummate professional, yet very personable; she tailored our wedding ceremony specially for us, and took time to get to know us before the ceremony. She charmed everyone she came in contact with, and added a note of graciousness to our reception, which we invited her to attend. Not only is she lovely, but she kind, generous, and exceedingly likable. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone seeking the services she offers; we were so pleased to know her, in fact, that we intend to keep in contact with her for her friendship and her spiritual guidance.

Reverend Ryan was the best. From the first time we met her we knew she was going to be the perfect fit for our wedding. She provided a few different samples and made as many adjustments as we suggested until it was perfect. Not only is she super nice, calming, and preforms a beautiful ceremony she also has the best prices. If you are looking for a traditional ceremony she’s great, but her specialty is providing something unique and beautiful.

Reverend Ryan was a joy to work with! We had heard about her services from a friend who had gotten married in March of this year. I contacted her via email and booked with her pretty much immediately. She custom made a beautiful ceremony with us and was helpful with making suggestions along the way. Our friends and family told us that our ceremony was PERFECT for us. I will be recommending her services to everyone I know 🙂

Getting married can be one of the most stressful things a couple can do in their life time. The planning and worrying alone can be overwhelming. When we were looking for a minister to bring us together, finding the right person was most important. We wanted someone who would share our dream and make it a reality. Reverend Ryan made the dream a reality and then some! Rev. Ryan’s passion, willingness to help, and sharing her ideas were truly first class and one of a kind. Reverend Ryan is uplifting, imaginative, and very creative. Never could we have imagined being so fortunate to find her. Reverend Ryan made our wedding the most memorable, special, and heart felt experience we could have dreamed. She is truly exceptional at what she does and will be part of our family forever.

Reverend Ryan was fantastic. We chose her online but was so very pleased with the caliber of quality we received. She made me “the bride” feel very comforted as I expressed how nervous I was getting toward the upcoming day. I would recommend her to anyone for any event she is capable of doing and would use her again for future events. I think she was top notch and really cared about the wedding. She brought a calm over me the last few moments before I walked down the aisle to meet my soon to be husband at the alter and made me feel like I’ve know her for much longer than this event. I couldn’t have been anymore pleased with her. If you are looking for quality, reliance, experience, professionalism and a caring sweet person, Reverend Ryan is the one and you will not be disappointed.

Working with Reverend Ryan was such a delight! We knew after meeting with her the first 5 minutes, that she was it for us. Although we are not a particularly religious couple, she helped make the ceremony so meaningful, sacred and personal to us. She made great suggestions and didn’t take it personally if we had another option in mind. It truly felt like a co-creation of our special day. We’d recommend her to anyone looking for someone of her professionalism to officiate their special day.

Wow !
Reverend Ryan was awesome. She made me feel very comfortable during the whole process even after the wedding was over. She was fun, friendly, helpful and quickly became for us one of our family member. We would love it so much and be honored if she would come to our BIG wedding in Puerto Rico and be our officiant. I would definitely RECOMMEND Reverend Ryan. She will make it just how you want and give you the extra confidence that you made need to make you feel as comfortable and stress free as she can possibly offer. I know you will NOT be disappointed ! Nancy & Henry Hernandez

Reverend Ryan was amazing to work with! From our first video chat meeting to our actual wedding day she was great. We emailed back and forth all our questions and needs and she always responded quickly with the answers we needed. She was patient with us in our decision making process when it came to our ceremony, answered any and all questions we had, and provided us with ideas and suggestions that helped make our day even better. She never pushed us in any one direction and helped us in further developing our own ideas and plans. She arrived prompt and early to our ceremony like she said she would. I could not have asked for a better wedding officiant, I highly recommend her.

Reverend Ryan did a FANTASTIC job with our ceremony. We wanted to incorporate both a sand ceremony and a single cord hand fastening while keeping it pretty short overall so our guests didn’t get bored, and Reverend Ryan made that happen! Throughout the process, Reverend Ryan was very responsive to email and was prompt with her responses. I loved working with her and would absolutely recommend her to a friend. Additionally, she was very reasonable with her rates. I am so happy that we were able to find someone within our budget that was able to do such a fantastic job!

We want to say Thank You so much Reverend Ryan for making our wedding day perfect. Not only did the ceremony go perfectly smooth, you were a sweetheart the whole journey. You helped us think of party favors, you gave your opinion for a hair website to choose the perfect hair style and you being bilingual was a big plus. It will be an honor to have you officiate our renewing vows in the future. You are forever in our hearts. Sincerely The DeAvilas

Reverend Ryan was everything we could have asked for in an officiant for our wedding…AND more! She really listened to, and understood, what we wanted in our ceremony. She seemed genuinely happy, not only to officiate our wedding, but for us. I would recommend Reverend Ryan to anyone! She goes above and beyond! Because of her, our ceremony was even more amazing than we had hoped!!!~Mr. and Mrs. Miller 🙂

NewGrange Hotel:

We are so lucky to be in the wedding industry working with happy couples and suppliers that cater to love.

Glass Slipper Weddings and Events, LLC:
We have worked with Reverend Ryan several times, and it has always been an absolute pleasure. She is a lovely person and an excellent minister, and she tailors her ceremonies to the couple, so each celebration is completely unique, beautiful, and meaningful. She has a wonderful speaking voice and is super easy to work with. We highly recommend her to all of our brides and grooms!
Robert Roscigno Photography:
Reverend Ryan organizes and performs such beautiful wedding ceremonies. Not the “run of the mill” ceremony. She really takes into consideration not only what the couple is looking for but also offers her own personal touch to make the occasion memorable. Highly recommended.
