Picking a officiant is a daunting task on it's own and we knew we wanted someone who felt like family and made us comfortable. Meeting Elaine and Mark was special, we talked for hours and I truly felt we had bonus family for our special day. I can't imagine not having the Crandall's at our wedding, I actually don't want to imagine it either! The Crandall's are truly amazing to work with and I honestly feel lucky I was able to have them for planning, events, and the wedding itself. We can't thank them enough for there time, advice and beautiful ceremony along with a beautiful day!

Rev. Elaine was recommended to us by The Inn on Broadway. We met with her twice leading up to the wedding. She created a beautiful, personal ceremony for us that fit everything we asked for. She even handled several issues that came up (none of which were her doing) with ease and professionalism. Her and her husband (Rev. Mark) are a great team!

A huge thank you to Magical Ceremonies for creating the most perfect ceremony for our wedding. They have a true passions for what they do. They took the time to listen to our love story and what was important for us to be in our ceremony and added personal touches to make it even more special. Knowing how close we are to our moms and grandmother, Rev. Elaine suggested a surprise rose presentation for them during the ceremony and it meant so much everyone! We complimented so much on our ceremony, we couldn't recommend them enough! Brittany & Mike, 10/1/2022
Working with Elaine and Mark was wonderful! They are very warm, kind and caring, passionate about what they do and really know their stuff. We were a little overwhelmed at the outset with planning a ceremony. They were very helpful in answering all my questions and provided lots of suggestions and guidance. We wanted a nonreligious, yet spiritual ceremony. Elaine and Mark were very flexible and intuitive - and provided a gorgeous custom ceremony script. They are extremely efficient and professional, and made the entire process a breeze for us. They handled all of our license paperwork. The actual wedding ceremony could not have gone better. We received multiple compliments from our guests about their officiating...they did a fantastic job! We could not have been happier with Magical Ceremonies, they helped make my wedding day absolutely perfect.

Elaine and Mark Crandall are the most incredible couple. I felt relaxed and prepared for my ceremony. They crafted the most beautiful vows for us after getting to know who we were. They came to our rehearsal as if they were part of our family. Elaine is the kind of organized we all dream of being. I can't say enough about our experience with them. (We love you!)
