About the Author
Article from Seattle Met Bride and Groom: Required Reading (Published on March 24, 2014) By Laura Cassidy, Editor These days, so much emphasis is placed on how weddings look—and what kind of salmon and Syrah are served, and how long the signature cocktails were poured, and how good the photobooth was—that it's possible to forget here and there that the party is not just a party but a coming together of lives. Couples hoping to elude the nearly inevitable post-wedding slump (something akin to day-after-Christmas melancholy) would do well to shift the focus such that color palettes and cake pedestals are second to the exchange of vows and a personal, meaningful ceremony. Easier said than done you say, and you're right. But now there's this: Seattle wedding officiant Mary Calhoun's Distinctive Wedding Ceremony. While the jacket and promo copy promises to do the pretty much impossible and appeal to all couples regardless of orientation, age, creed, and philosophy, well, who better than to actually deliver on that than one of the top vendors in a city known for love and marriage for all? And regardless of all that, the couple you need the text to appeal to is the couple you're a part of. With more than 80 ceremony templates to ponder and lots of lists and how-tos (from decidedly unromantic—Facility Rental Checklist—to meatier primers on defining your marriage mission and keeping romance alive) to reference, Calhoun's fresh, immediate, fun, and conversational text is a real resource for real couples. Reverend Mary Calhoun lives in Seattle, Washington. Since her ordination as an interfaith minister in 1993, her mission has been to honor all religious and spiritual wedding traditions. In 1984 Mary founded one of Seattle’s first event planning companies. This experience, combined with two decades of performing diverse ceremonies, enabled Mary to develop the seamless techniques that make her weddings so revered. An award-winning officiant, Rev. Mary credits her clients and colleagues as perpetual sources of inspiration. If you have questions about your wedding, contact Mary at www.distinctiveweddingceremony.com

Rev. Mary Calhoun brings a voice of love and expertise, not only in helping with the vows but creating a smooth, functional ceremony. She has brought so much to my attention that I wouldn't have thought of (bridal emergency kit for the big day, etc).
I am going to be giving this as an gift to every friend of mine who gets engaged because she has written it in such a way that it can apply to all lifestyles. So great.
