Meet Kelly Marker, Wedding Officiant


My Partner when the calendar is full

When I am unavailable to lead a ceremony, I turn to my friend and colleague Kelly Marker. Kelly has a calm, capable confidence that extends to everything she does. She will support you to make your wedding day a joyful event.

Kelly was awesome! I can’t tell you how many people commented on the actual words of the ceremony! It was perfect for us!

Our roles

When Kelly and I partner on a wedding, I still get to work with you to create your one-of-a-kind wedding ceremony. Once we’ve got it just right, Kelly steps in to lead it and the rehearsal.

Mary and her colleague Kelly did a wonderful job on our special day! Our families loved the small details that were incorporated such as the ring warming ceremony, our wine box ceremony, as well as honoring our children.

More about Kelly, in her own words

I honor the diversity and uniqueness of all individuals. My spiritual beliefs embrace respect, love, balance, harmony and compassion for all things. I believe in living an authentic life, remaining flexible and looking for the beauty in everything and every situation.

At work

In my other professional life, I am a licensed professional counselor. I am dedicated to honoring and supporting individuals and families to more successfully meet the challenges of life with grace and dignity.

At home

I feel blessed to share this journey with my husband of 26 years and four incredible children, ages 16 to 24. I am passionate about family and love to cook, hike, read fabulous novels and dig in the dirt (aka garden). It’s clear to me that everyone could learn a lesson from my yellow lab, Beau, about living in the moment and the value of daily naps in the sun.

We had numerous compliments about how beautiful, personal and touching the ceremony was. So a huge thank you to you and to Kelly. She did a great job.
