Hello! I am Rev. Maura Bernard and I have more than 12 years of experience officiating at weddings for loving couples of all genders. I serve Palm Beach and Broward Counties, as well as Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, the Palm Beaches, Lake Worth, Wellington, Deerfield Beach, Highland Beach, Hillsboro Beach, Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, Wilton Manors, and Miami. I can help you write your ceremony and vows, or will stand with you as you use your own words and traditions. It can be religious, spiritual but not religious, or generic as you wish… even hand-fastings or earth-based ceremonies.
I have officiated at so many joyful celebrations! Some of my more memorable events have been a Jewish/Greek wedding, two women who
made their vows on the beach, a bride and her military husband who was being deployed in 48 hours, and a couple who played gospel and rock music during the service. Each ceremony has been so distinct and moving. Love is the most important thing of all!
I perform Weddings, Commitment ceremonies, Vow renewals, and Elopements that can be Christian, Non-denominational (mentions God), or Non-religious (no mention of God). I have worked with couples of all genders, faiths and cultures.
As an ordained priest with a seminary degree and a large archive of ceremonies and vows, I change a flat rate of $300 for the event, with an extra $20 if I am requested to be at the rehearsal on a day other than the wedding. I also have a discount rate of $200 for those in the military and couples who wish to renew their vows. I require a deposit of $100, especially if I am creating a custom ceremony or vows for you. This can be done through PayPal, Venmo or other means.
