Thank you Mary!!

Mary was amazing! My husband and I just got married TODAY and Mary was such a delight to work with! She was easy going, calm and so so kind. She was the perfect person to marry us! At the very beginning she told us she wanted our wedding ceremony to be how WE wanted it to be. She made sure to explain and show us all of the different options of how the ceremony could go. She was super quick with responses while emailing back and forth before the wedding and answered absolutely any question that I had. Thank you so much Mary for making our wedding perfect for us! You are a rockstar!!


Mary was amazing

Mary was absolutely amazing to work with. Me and my wife were most nervous about the ceremony but she was very patient and helped us through everything we had questions about and made the whole speaking infront of tons of people very easy. She was quick with responding to any emails or phone calls within the same day. I couldn’t of imagined having anyone else be there to marry us we are so blessed to have found her.


Couldn’t ask for a better JP

Mary was great! She is everything you want in a JP and then some! She had a great selection of several different readings and was flexible with adjusting it to our specific needs. She was very thorough in reviewing everything that we needed to know and do for the ceremony. If you are looking for a great JP, your search is over!


Mary was an absolute lifesaver. I wasn’t the bride-but the sister of the bride. We hit a few road bumps that day (rain when the ceremony was outdoors!) but Mary was calm, cool and collected and helped us make educated decisions about maybe moving the ceremony under the tent. She went above and beyond and, luckily, the clouds held long enough that we could do the ceremony outside. When it came time for the ceremony Mary had the perfect balance of holding the guests’ attention and making sure all eyes were on the couple. She was super flexible beforehand in helping them craft a ceremony that fit who they are. We also have a big motley crew of a family and Mary was able to make the ceremony “click” with our many pieces.
One thing that struck me: all throughout the time before the ceremony, while she we were all caught up in dealing with rain and a few other “not as planned” issues, she had her mind and focus on the couple at all times. She checked in with the bride and reassured her, she met with the groom to make sure everything was set.
If you’re contemplating booking Mary for your wedding, do yourself a favor and just do it!


My husband and I were extremely happy with using Mary and Kindred Spirits as the JP for our wedding ceremony. We aren’t part of a congregation, and didn’t feel comfortable asking a family friend to become an “ordained minister for a day”. We started reaching out to JPs in NH, and from the initial response we really felt comfortable using Kindred Spirits. We wanted something heartfelt, but individual (like I’m sure everyone does), and we were able to achieve the perfect balance with Mary’s guidance. She was responsive, encouraging, and offered to meet with us via phone or in person as needed. I also liked that she only booked one wedding per day, so I didn’t have to worry about anything on the day.
The week before the wedding, my fiancé started changing vows and readings – Mary was fantastic and let him make adjustments right up until the morning of the wedding. She made us feel at ease so that we could really just concentrate on and enjoy each other during the ceremony. I would absolutely recommend her.


Mary is nothing short of incredible! She swooped in and saved us last second for a JP when ours fell through. She was very quick to respond, helped us put together the most beautiful ceremony we could ever have imagined and even stuck out the rain with us for a dry ceremony! I cannot recommend Mary enough to ANYONE looking for a JP. The professionalism, experience and ceremony you will get, is absolutely priceless. Thank you so so much, Mary. You made our wedding day so much more beautiful.
