  • Celia was enthusiastic, helpful, and open-minded. She helped us craft a unique wedding, was quite flexible in incorporating our own requests, and provided some much needed guidance where appropriate. We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant!

  • Although we have to admit Celia wasn't our first selection, as we didn't know her. She was highly recommended by the officiant who was not able to preside over our wedding. As it turns out, we couldn't have asked for someone who would better put together an order of service that truly captured who we are as a couple, our story and history. Helping our guests fully understand our history and making it easier for all of them to in turn become more familiar with one another. Therefore helping all our guests be able to join together as one group, as opposed to several groups of people from various relationships coming to one couples wedding. Celia has a style and grace about the way she performs her task. She worked with us to truly get to know us prior to our wedding. Pulling together an amazing service filled with laughs, tears, memories and feelings. All those who attended love how she not only presided over the event, but became part of the event. It wasn't like ... Read more

  • My husband and I got married back in the beginning of August. Celia made our ceremony beyond perfect. When I first contacted her about possibly using her has our officiant we ended up chatting for over an hour! Instantly knew she would be a perfect fit. She got to know our whole story. She made our ceremony so personal, people even asked if we knew her before the wedding! She’s super friendly and outgoing , she made our wedding ceremony non stressful . Couldn’t have asked for a better officiant !

    Congratulations again, and thank you so much! You orchestrated so many personal touches and I think that made all the difference! Best wishes for a fabulous ***married*** season full of holidays and family!!! Celia

  • We absolutely love Celia! From the first time I spoke with Celia over FaceTime, I knew I wanted her to officiate our wedding. She had an infectious personality and an amazing sense of humor. Celia took the time to really get to know our love story and understand what made our relationship so unique. She worked with us every step of the way to create a ceremony that was personal (but not too personal) and memorable for all. I've lost track of the number of compliments we've received about Celia since our big day!

    Thank you so, so much! What a lovely setting and such a great crowd too! It was really a pleasure to collaborate with you. Best wishes for many years of love and surprises!

  • Celia was recommended to us by our DJ and since the moment we talked I knew she’d have to marry us! She is so kind and caring, funny too! She put my mind at ease with a lot of things! She was of course patient with me as I love to procrastinate and so does my husband! The ceremony was amazing and she incorporated everything we love about our life into it!

    Thank you Danielle and David! Congratulations!! What a monumentally gorgeous day you had as a backdrop for your wedding. I'm so, so glad you got to take all your photos (and photos of the random joggers too) with the ocean as a guest! Best wishes for many, many years of love, laughs and Cheddar Sour Cream Ruffles!!

  • Celia wrote a magnificent ceremony script for our wedding. She took the time to learn about us as a couple and about our vision for our celebration. She is warm and welcoming and recommended beautiful readings as well as rituals. Our friends and family were moved by the ceremony and gave us many compliments about how meaningful and personalized it was. She guided us through the process perfectly and kept our minds at ease. We were not able to have a rehearsal but no one could tell--Celia kept things running smoothly and seamlessly. She was a true pleasure to work with and we were so happy to have her with us on our special day.

  • Choosing Celia to officiate our wedding was one of the best decisions we made! Our DJ recommended her (after having previously booked her for his wedding). From the start, she was punctual, professional, kind, reassuring, and an absolute pleasure. She took away all of the stress behind, really, the most important part of the day... the ceremony! Celia 1.) learned our entire love story, 2.) drafted and shared a script, 3.) handled the paperwork, and 4.) advised "next steps" post-wedding. Thank you, Celia!

    Congratulations!! Thank you so much weighing in on our collaboration! While I'd like to take ALL the credit for the day, you made such smart choices; a terrific, gorgeous venue, an amazing DJ; that is such a good start! Best wishes for an exciting **married** summer!

  • If you're looking for a highly personalized and moving ceremony, Celia is just that officiant who can convey your love story! From our very first call with Celia, she has been so invested in learning about us as a couple and how to make our story transcend into components of our ceremony. We worked closely with Celia in selecting readings and passages that were most meaningful to us. When it came to our wedding day, Celia's delivery provided the perfect mix of engagement and meaning. Many of our guests came up to us after the wedding and commented how much they enjoyed our officiant Celia and the beautiful ceremony. We are so pleased Celia helped make our ceremony such a memorable part of our wedding day!

    Hello! Thank you so, so much! You put so much thought into every detail of the whole celebration, it really reflected you perfectly. Best wishes for many years of love and laughs~!

  • Michael Yelle preformed our wedding ceremony & it absolutely beautiful! All our guests could not stop talking about it. We were the first in our families to do a non traditional wedding so people weren’t sure what to expect. Michael has a way of getting people’s attention & all feel connected during this very special moment! He’s personality was very welcoming & I love his sense of humor. He knows how to make to less nervous about vows. We are so happy to have found them for our wedding!

  • Celia is great! We were following her advice on all the wedding boards before we even thought of hiring her! Once we chose Olde Mill Inn we realized we could try and book her, and we did! She made our ceremony rich with details and told some stories about us. We got to include a hand-fasting and bottle breaking as part of our non-denominational ceremony. Several guests asked us if she knew us beforehand because it felt so personal. She was even patient with our nitpicking edits but also told us (rightly) what would work, despite our doubts. She's definitely a great choice!

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you so much! What nitpicking? You two were a breeze! All the personal touches you added to the wedding were just perfect for you and your friends and family! Best wishes for many years of fun and games, lol!

    Congratulations to you! What a fun wedding, and such a lovely setting too! I thought the special touch of having *your* roller coaster on all the plasma TVs at cocktail hour was just hilarious! Best wishes for lots of love, lots of laughter and lots of thrill rides!
