Marilyn is absolutely amazing! She walks you through every step and writes the most beautiful ceremonies! I will recommend her to everyone I know!!!
Marilyn was the perfect officiant to bless our wedding. From the very beginning she was very friendly and communicated how much she wanted to personalize the ceremony. She was willing to meet up with us to get to know us and to discuss how she could personalize the ceremony. As we met with her we felt so comfortable around her and she even brought an example of the wedding cord that was going to be used in our hand fasting ceremony. The range of options that she presented to us to show our unity (sand ceremony, hand fasting, unity candle, etc) was great and she even explained each option and what they mean. We both wanted the handfasting ceremony, as this was very unique, but also provided a good amount of meaning for us both. Marilyn fully customized our ceremony after asking both my future wife and myself to write some blurbs about us and our relationship. Marilyn melded this together into a fully customized ceremony that she sent several drafts for us to review. She was always pleasant and timely in her responses. She also helped guide us as my future wife and I wrote our own vows. She provided excellent feed back and support for them. On the day of the ceremony she worked her magic as she assisted in getting the necessary legal documents taken care of. She was there with a smile and provided the most excellent service in blessing our marriage. She was clear with her words and guided us along on our big day. Working with her was easy, as it was like working with a good friend. If you are seeking a personal ceremony with its own uniqueness, Marilyn is the person that you want. She provides so many options for you that you can truly personalize a day that is about you. And that is something that she never took the focus off of...you. She was excellent and there are not enough words to descibe the kindness, support, and professionalism that she displayed with us. We both thank her from the bottom of our hearts!
We are so glad we chose Marilyn as our officiant. She was so easy and pleasant to work with leading up to the wedding day. She customized our ceremony perfectly, it was personal, funny, meaningful and memorable without being too lengthy. She performed the ceremony in about 15 minutes, which is exactly what we were looking for. After the wedding, she sent us an email about what to do next like obtaining our marriage certificate and changing my last name. She truly cares about the couples she marries and that is a great trait for someone who is joining you in marriage.
My wife and I got married on Oct. 11 at Renault Winery, and it couldn't have been better. A lot of the credit goes to Marilyn and John D'Auria of With This Kiss I Thee Wed LLC.
We cannot stress how helpful and professional Marilyn was during the entire ceremony planning process. Communication was never a problem as she provided us with every detail, helpful tips and what to expect throughout.
Marilyn was unable to officiate our wedding because she had another scheduled that day, but her husband, John, did a fabulous job. He made us feel at ease and his reading of the ceremony was perfect.
We highly recommend both Marilyn and John D'Auria for your wedding planning needs!
Planning a wedding can be stressful, especially when it comes to finding an officiant. Marilyn was FABULOUS. It was meant for me to find her. She made the whole process easy and smooth. She was extremely helpful in creating exactly what we wanted for our ceremony. She captured our "love story" and turned it into a beautiful ceremony. I can't recommend her enough, she's amazing! Absolute professional.
We found Mrs. Marilyn for our ceremony through Positive reviews so we are making it a point to write an Excellent review about her!!! There is NOTHING she couldn't help us with, she gave us beautiful options to make our ceremony perfect, she gave all vital info in reference to applying for marriage liscense etc... (Which is vital for out of town couples.) Very easy to work with and covers everything in great detail!!!! There are people who do there job because it is a job and there are people who do there job above and beyond because they love what they do and care.... Marilyn is someone who does above and beyond and you feel she cares, you are in Amazing hands if you trust her with your Wonderul day!!! I even had someone who attended my ceremony tell me they would like to travel to Atlantic City when it is time for them to get married(and this wouldn't be there first marriage) just to have her perform there wedding and I think that speaks volume especially since destination weddings are much more money then just getting married in your home town!!!! Anyway, my Ceremony was a DREAM and we owe it ALL to Marilyn D'Auria, I hope anyone who is in need of an officiant do themselves a favor, make your ceremony a DREAM too by using Marilyn!!!!!!
Marilyn was absolutely amazing!! I contacted her a couple months before our wedding date when our other officiant didn't show up for a meeting and then never responded to phone calls. Marilyn calmly talked me out of nervous breakdown and walked me through the process she usually follows when doing a wedding. She was so professional; she explained everything and then sent over a copy of a contract with details thoroughly explained. After signing the contract she sent out an outline of ceremony options, which were vast but not overwhelming. My husband and I enjoyed reading through the options and making the ceremony just the way WE wanted it. The end result was wonderful! EVERYONE said how nice the ceremony was, especially since it was so personalized. I would highly recommend using Marilyn as your wedding officiant!
Marilyn was absolutely amazing! We couldn't have picked someone more wonderful to marry us! She was very helpful, sweet, professional, and made it even more special than I thought it could be........I can go on & on about how great Marilyn is!!!!! She was the perfect choice!!!!!
Marilyn gave my husband and I excellent, personalized service. She was informative and helpful as our wedding date approached, and always got back to us quickly when we had questions! Our ceremony was well-written and well-delivered. It was easy for us to see that Marilyn LOVES her job and does a great job of it! Thank you again Marilyn - you made our wedding day a memorable one!
My wife and I had no idea where to start in looking for an officiant for our wedding, so we started reading online reviews. Marilyn at With This Kiss I Thee Wed had a lot of positive feedback online, so we decided to reach out to her to ask her some questions about the service she provided. As soon as I spoke to her on the phone, I could tell she would do a great job as our officiant. She sounded kind and gentle but also sure of herself, and she was ready to offer advice whenever we needed it. Marilyn was always very prompt in getting back to us when we had questions and concerns, and she was always very informative, even in areas like obtaining our marriage license and name change advice AFTER the ceremony was over! Additionally, the weather was questionable the day before and the day of our outdoor ceremony, but Marilyn was flexible and well prepared to deal with any scenario we were likely to run across. The ceremony she wrote for us was personalized, beautiful, and tailored to our specific situation. She took the time to gather our love story and put it in words that made our wedding day unforgettable. Thank you again, Marilyn – you did an outstanding job!
I contacted Marilyn after reading some of her reviews online. I cannot tell you how happy I am that we chose her to be our officiant for our very special day! As soon as I received Marilyn's response to my very first email, I knew she was the perfect officiant for our wedding.
Marilyn was so prompt and precise in responding to all of my questions. She went far above and beyond her duties to help us out in every way possible. Marilyn walked us through the process to obtain our license, helped us choose the type of ceremony, the time of day, the perfect place for the ceremony and afterward has helped us with the legalities, name change process. etc.
We chose the elopement ceremony. There were just myself, my husband, our son and a few others at our wedding. The ceremony was absolutely BEATUIFUL. Marilyn was extremely professional, and at the same time a lot of fun!
I highly recommend Marilyn as a wedding officiant!

We highly recommend using Marilyn for your wedding!! She was so sweet and kind and guided us through the entire wedding process. Marilyn was super prompt answering every phone call and email and explained everything to us, step by step. She tailored and customized our wedding ceremony to fit our love story and it was truly beautiful and a genuine reflection of us. During our ceremony, she made us and our guests extremely comfortable and provided us with the most beautiful and memorable ceremony that we could have ever asked for. I cannot say enough about Marilyn! My husband and I absolutely love her and would recommend anyone getting married to consider using her services. Not only is she professional and friendly, but she makes the entire wedding process a piece of cake!!! Hands down, she is the best!
Marilyn performed our ceremony at the Ocean City Yacht Club on May 16th and our guests are still talking about what a lovely ceremony it was. We initially began the wedding planning while living out of state which made it quite challenging to meet with vendors but from the moment I spoke with Marilyn over the phone, I was certain we would be in good hands. She is not only a true professional but warm, welcoming and VERY patient. I hope that other couples will enjoy her services as much as we did. Thank you, Marilyn!
Our ceremony was amazing, we couldn't have asked for better. We enjoyed it and our guests raved about it. Marilyn made it easy to plan the ceremony all the way from Kansas. She's very good at communicating with the couples as well as her quickly responding to any questions/concerns you may have. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone!!
I am so happy/lucky that I came across Marilyn. She has such an easy and thorough process. She arranged the perfect ceremony for us. She was kind, reasonably priced and very quick to respond. If you are thinking of using Marilyn as your officiant you will not be disappointed!
Marilyn was absolutely wonderful. The ceremony was perfect- it was warm and reflected who we are as a couple. During the planning phase Marilyn was so receptive to our ideas and interested to learn about us that I quickly felt as if I knew her. I was brought up Catholic and my husband is Jewish. Our ceremony gave a nod to both of our faiths and Marilyn made this process so easy to do. Our guests are still telling us how wonderful our ceremony was! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone, as she is attentive, flexible, kind and a pleasure to work with.
My wife and I recently utilized Marilyn as our wedding officiate and I sincerely cannot say enough positive things about her services. Her services were everything we hoped for and more. Marilyn assisted us from start to finish on the day of our wedding and suggested subtle changes that made the procession and ceremony more beautiful. Any and all questions we had were answered in a timely manner and emails were exchanged without issue. She also went above and beyond in the sense that she sent a follow-up email with very useful information for newlyweds pertaining to name changes and such. I would certainly suggest her services to anyone looking for a local wedding officiate.
Marilyn was a great officiant. My husband and I waited until almost the last minute and was referred to Marilyn by a friend. She was very quick to respond and get back to us on everything. She took everything we told her about ourselves and made it sound beautiful. When we got to meet her she was extremely nice and you could instantly tell she loved what she does, which made everything she said meaningful and heartwarming. She has a lovely tone of voice and speaks very well. It was not hard to understand her and she knew where to pause for effect, laughter, etc. to make everything flow well. I would highly recommend her for any ceremony and it was a pleasure to meet her.
I could not have ask for a better person then Marilyn to help us with our nature based wedding. She was a delight and made us feel as thought we were family, for this I am truly grateful. I can not say enough good things about her, just thank you from the bottoms of our hearts.
Blessed be Hope and George.
I wish we could leave an even higher rating than 5/5! We were a last minute elopement that we wanted to make our ceremony nicer than just at the courthouse. We found Marilyn and it was a perfect match, our ceremony was amazing, felt like she had known us for years! She braved the beach in March for us, and was just wonderful about everything. Beyond the actual ceremony she went above and beyond every expectation, answering our 500 questions, working around our very right timeline; and after all was said and done even gave information on how to change my name and how to pick up our official marriage certificate. Highly recommended to anyone looking!!!
