Ordained & Certified Officiant/Ceremony Planner - Since 2001
Mary Gehr is a member of the International World Christianship Association of Clergy, the American Association Of Wedding Officiants, and the National Association of Christian Ministers. She has worked as a lay minister in family and marriage ministry since the early 90's becoming a Christian "Ordained" Minister in 2001.
While Mary's religious background is in Christianity, her commitment is to provide stress-free/on-demand & customized wedding ceremonies that are very much interfaith or non-religious (secular), and respectful of all practices.
Mary has officiated hundreds of sacred and contemporary ceremonies throughout the US and various global destinations. She has co-officiated with other Ministers & Rabbis, celebrating the spiritual and cultural bouquet of our times. Her calm demeanor helps the couple relax and enjoy their special day.
Mary is honored to offer ceremony services to all couples.
Mary's passion for people extends as well to numerous causes that center around equality, climate change, animal rescue, and child/elderly care - to name a few. As someone also dedicated to mentoring young girls with dreams to become women with vision, she takes personal pride in her only child, her daughter Chelsea, who resides in New York and seeks to positively impact her community.
For Mary, blessings take many forms: her Shih Tzu dogs, Luci and Ivy, being one of 10 children, raised in a strong Christian home by two incredible parents, traveling the globe, etc.
Simply put, gratitude provides a solid foundation in both Mary's personal as well as professional life.
Choosing an officiant - especially one that we had never met before - to play such an important role in one of the largest days of our lives was no small task. However, from the initial FaceTime chat to the ceremony itself, Mary was fantastic - her warm demeanor and personal touches made us feel comfortable from the start. My husband said, “she was made to do this!” And when Mary was up there officiating, it felt like we had known her for years! Do not hesitate to have Mary officiate your wedding!
