  • 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!

    Thank you Eric and Victoria! What a singular, unique wedding ceremony! The setting you picked was simply perfect; I really can't imagine a better backdrop for such an intimate and intentional service. Best wishes for many years of love and laughs!

  • I found Celia and a few other potential officiants through this site and after talking with Celia I knew I wanted her to perform the ceremony. We had several phone conversations leading up to the day. Celia took the time to get to know us and made us so comfortable with the wording we chose. She is thoughtful, insightful, funny and truly cares about making this day special for you. I thought the reception and dancing would be my favorite part of the wedding but the ceremony was more than I could have wished for. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.

  • I can’t thank Celia enough for all the things she did for our wedding. She was always available to talk and was able to make a personal ceremony for us that was both romantic and light hearted like we wanted. I would recommend her to anyone! Thanks Celia!

  • My husband and I wanted a unique ceremony that felt personal & intimate for everyone involved. After watching Celia's videos from other weddings I knew she would deliver exactly what we were looking for. She got to know us and asked questions that made us feel at ease and reassured. I was asked so many times at our wedding how I knew Celia, everyone thought we must have known each other prior to the wedding because of how personal and invested she was during our ceremony. Celia is amazing! She was quick and humorous when she needed to be but then emotional and so sincere throughout the entire ceremony. I couldn't have asked for a better officiant. I know it can be a scary process picking people to be part of your special day, especially the ceremony. We didn't want it to be boring but we also didn't want it to be a show. We wanted our story to be told to everyone we loved most. Celia was the perfect officiant for us. She will always be part of my memories of our wedding day.... Read more

    Hi! Thank you so, so much! I absolutely loved your wedding! Every detail was so personal and so 'you'! The Winery was such a warm, sweet location, and have to say that your DJ's playlist was probably one of the most inventive and expressive I've ever heard. Your careful attention to detail came though in every corner of the night! Best wishes for a wonderful 'married' Thanksgiving!!! Celia

  • Celia is amazing! My husband and I got to know Celia through a few phone calls and she made us feel very comfortable from the start! She had so many ideas for us to help create the perfect ceremony! It was absolutely everything that we wanted, short and sweet, but personal and funny. The guests loved her and raved about her! She has also been so extremely helpful with all the details with paperwork, etc. We would choose her again, without a doubt!

    Hello! It was such a pleasure to work with you both! Your story is one of such serendipity and love it would be hard NOT to be charmed by it. And all that purple!!! Just gorgeous! Thank you again, and best wishes for a happy *** married*** holiday season!

  • Celia is hands down one of the best officiants in NJ! She is very popular and books up fast for a reason! She created a highly personalized ceremony and executed it flawlessly. We received many compliments on how beautiful and personal our ceremony was (I find the majority of wedding ceremonies boring and ours truly was not!) and how the ceremony perfectly reflected us individually and as a couple. Included all of the quotes / mentions we asked for and really took the time to get to know us. Thank you Celia for truly creating something special!

    Thank you so, so much! It was so great to work with you; you were so open to including so many fun elements (like "Falling in Love is like Owning a Dog as your opening reading!)! It made it very easy to create your script! Best wishes for a lovely ***married** holiday season and new year!

  • 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~!
