What our couples are saying
Amazingly unique! Perfect! Loved the process! Loved the ceremony! Maria was wonderful to work with and made everything easy and great!
A Ceremony to Remember. Our ceremony was absolutely magical. Maria was such a breath of fresh air. She seriously went above and beyond to ensure that our ceremony flowed without a hitch.
Her attention to detail and overall personalization is what really made our ceremony so memorable.
Maria was so easy to communicate with and has such a great sense of humor!
If you want a ceremony that TRULY fits you and your future spouse—then hire Maria! I promise you will not regret it.
Thank you so much, Maria. You seriously have no idea how grateful we were to have found you!
Where do I even begin?! Maria was just absolutely amazing!!! She’s loving, caring and takes amazing pride in her work (as she should!!). Everyone was amazed by her and I still get comments about her even a month later. Love her!!
I don’t remember exactly how I found Maria, but I remember reading her RAVE reviews and hoping she would be available for our wedding. Luckily for us, she was.
From our first phone call with her to the end of our ceremony she was amazing. She was so friendly and warm; she really made the whole process as easy as it could be. We really wanted a wedding ceremony that was unique to us, and that is exactly what we got. Our ceremony not only told our personal love story but expressed how and why we continue to love each other.
While some of the questions may leave you scratching your head, the way Maria weaves these
answers together is beautiful and meaningful.
Our wedding ceremony was perfect. We can’t thank Maria enough for making it everything we
Maria was amazing! She was so personable and has a great sense of humor. I felt comfortable from the minute we met her.
She was very open to doing some things differently for the ceremony. She has you answer a lot of questions online about the relationship and then personalizes the ceremony. She truly gave us such a beautiful ceremony. Everyone kept coming up to us and telling us how much they loved the ceremony, and how unique and meaningful it was. Parts of it were sweet and meaningful, and other parts light and funny. I enjoyed every minute of it. She really has a gift for this. I was so grateful to have Maria be a part of our wedding!! I highly recommend her.
So HAPPY we went with Maria at A Page in Time – She far exceeded our expectations.
I have been to several weddings and often times it seems ceremonies are too short and impersonal, or a little boring. Maria was the opposite! She had everyone including me and my husband laughing, crying, and enjoying every minute of the ceremony! She really took the time to get to know us prior to the wedding and she made the ceremony personal to us, including many details about our love story and our own personalities.
Guest after guest complimented the ceremony and mentioned her specifically. She kept me on task with what I needed to do to prepare and she was even a calming influence in the week leading up to the wedding. She has a warm friendly spirit and a great personality. She met with
us before to find out what we wanted, and she really did listen. I thought the ceremony was heartwarming, funny, traditional, and elegant which is exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend A Page in Time. It was well worth it!!!
My husband and I cannot begin to express our gratitude for how wonderful our officiant, Maria Roncari of A Page In Time, was.
From first meeting her at a wedding expo in Orlando we both
knew we needed to have her perform our ceremony. She was friendly, upbeat, and very personable. She even took the time to meet with us to discuss what we had in mind for our ceremony and truly listened to what we had to say. After officially booking her for our Disney
wedding we were then guided through a series of questions. And many added an element of surprise to our already amazing wedding ceremony.
Maria was always available to answer our questions and guide us through every step of the planning process. The day of the ceremony she was even there before we arrived making sure our day went perfectly. She was a calming influence on us during the actual ceremony and even had us laughing at a time when we were extremely nervous.
Afterwards, our guests could not stop talking about how wonderful the ceremony was and how
they felt that they walked away knowing our love story even better than before. Even our closest
friends who had known both of us from the beginning could not stop talking about the little
details they had learned. We were honored to have her as our officiant and cannot say enough good things about this wonderful lady we have been blessed to get to know.
Maria was phenomenal! She made our Ceremony absolutely unforgettable. We have been to many weddings and never have I heard such a personal touch to the vows.
For me, choosing an officiant was one of the more difficult decisions I faced when planning our wedding.
Neither my husband nor I are involved in a church, but we still wanted to find someone
to officiate who would make the day special and respect the sanctity of marriage. Maria understood where we were coming from – why we made the choice that we did, and what we were looking for in an officiant.
During the initial meeting, Maria will take the time to get to know you and your fiancé. She will ask lots of questions, really listen to your answers, and explain everything her service offers. She sets up a website with checklists for all of the milestones you must meet leading up to your big day.
The website allowed us to be in fairly constant communication with Maria. Even though we only met face to face once before the ceremony, we had questionnaires to fill out, details to send her
about the ceremony – and every milestone was met with cheerful emails from Maria about how excited she was, and how we had nothing to worry about. The whole experience felt very personable – it was exactly what I hoped for, and what I feared would be missing without a pastor involved. Maria even worked with friends of mine who were singing a song during the ceremony, reaching out to them through email to ensure a seamless blend of all our ceremony elements.
We had many friends and family comment that the resulting ceremony, with readings chosen by my fiancé and I, and remarks by Maria, was among the most unique they had ever attended. One word to the wise, though: Anything you say on your questionnaires is fair game for ceremony remarks! 🙂
We found Maria at a Wedding Expo and decided to use her for our officiant services, but little did we know how amazing she truly would be!!
We wanted our ceremony to be very personal and really reflect who we are and how we feel about each other, and Maria truly made that happen!!! From the very first meeting we had with her, she wanted to get to know us and make it as personal as she could. When the day of the wedding came, she truly made our ceremony magical!! She worked with us for months, asking us questions.
Our family and friends are still talking about how amazing our ceremony was and how personal it was. We laughed, we cried and all of that was thanks to Maria! She was truly a joy to work with and we will forever be thankful for the beautiful ceremony that she gave to us on our
wedding day!! We would recommend her to any bride and groom looking for an officiant who will
make your ceremony exactly how you want it to be 🙂
“The Best Wedding Ceremony We’ve Ever Experienced! That is what Sue and I heard several times.
Our guests were delighted and amazed at how you wove into the ceremony such personal details, meaningful statements from both of us and your own observations and best of all, humor. From the two of us, I can tell you our very high expectations were exceeded! You managed to work through the circumstances of your own personal loss (of loved ones just prior to our ceremony) and delivered a ceremony that was so much better than we ever would have thought to ask for. I also want to mention the “wine box ceremony.” We had never heard of it but it was right up our alley, being wine lovers as we are.
We had several of our guests say they are going to recommend it to others and one couple actually said they were going to do a vow renewal and would include it!
Maria, as a client, I can say we are thoroughly satisfied with your services and heartily
recommend you to any others looking for a unique, completely personalized wedding ceremony.
What you provided us will live in our memory and that of our guests for many, many years to
come. In our case, forever.
Thank you, Maria.
Wayne and Sue
Many of our guests comment how wonderful and personal our ceremony was.
The best!!!! I knew I wanted my ceremony to be different.
I knew I wanted it to be personal and I couldn’t have found a better gem than the wonderfully talented Maria!!!
She was an absolute sweetheart and an absolute gift to the wedding industry. She brings her professional expertise and experience of being a creative write into your day. She works so closely with the couple to make the ceremony engaging and personal. Her questionnaire allows
her to really get to know the couple and tell their story.
I received SOOOO many compliments on how amazing my ceremony was. They laughed, they
cried, and they didn’t have to sit through another boring ceremony, hearing the same things over and over.
I got married at the Winter Park Farmer’s Market and the SunRail definitely made the ceremony experience quite different but, she handled the minor interruptions like a pro – they almost seemed part of the ceremony.
If you’re looking for a PERFECT ceremony, look no further!
What can we say about Maria. She is wonderful, warm, amazing, and a personality through the
We had a gorgeous wedding and she made the ceremony the very best part of it. We had so many guests come to us and ask who the officiant was and where we found her and that she helped us have the most beautiful ceremony that they had ever seen. We could not have been
happier. The entire process from the moment I met her was wonderful and reassuring. You will
not regret one moment of working with her. I promise you that you need to have Maria perform
your ceremony it will be the best decision of the wedding planning process you can make.
My husband and I cannot say enough about our experience working with Maria Roncari.
She listened to our dream of what our ceremony would and should be and helped us create it. Our ceremony was so us and Maria helped us find the words to express our feelings and views on love. Not only did she create a ceremony that was a perfect reflection of us; she helped us with every little thing along the way. She was a cheerleader for us and an amazing source of advice and wisdom. We appreciate her so much and would readily recommend her to anyone and everyone!
