  • Reverend Kayelily did a great job at my elopement ceremony. My now husband and I booked her services for a 2020 wedding. When we decided to scale things down from our original wedding plan, Kayelily was very flexible and happy to work with us and the changes that we made. She made the process of choosing our vows and type of ceremony very simple and she was easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend her to any couples looking for an officiant in the area.

    Thanks, Emma! Loved working with you and Arthur on your story and secret paragraphs. It is important to me that the wedding ceremony reflect the couple and has deep meaning for them as well as being light-hearted too. It was a grand success when I could see all your guests paying rapt attention and laughing--especially Arthurs grandmother who told me she really enjoyed the ceremony. Congratulations!

  • Jared and I want to thank Kayeliliy for an incredible wedding ceremony. We cannot tell you how many people told us how beautiful it was, and many said it was the most special they had ever seen - So personal and lovely... And so well-delivered, with the perfect combination of sentiment and humor. We were laughing through tears. So many thanks for her talents and efforts on our behalf!

  • I'm so happy we connected with Kayelily and she was able to officiate our wedding! Kayelily was able to accommodate us fairly last minute when we decided to switch from a courthouse wedding to a small outdoor wedding. She was responsive and communicative as we were planning our small event. We were overwhelmed with were to start with a ceremony and vows and her guidance was a great help! And finally her delivery at our event was perfect! We loved the way she read the words we had arrived at and everyone present commented on how great the ceremony and her delivery was.

    Your intimate family wedding was so sweet. I loved working with you to get the ceremony perfect for you and Joseph. And the small picturesque neighborhood park you chose was simply beautiful. I’m so glad you found me. It was my honor!

  • Although Reverend Kayelily only knew us through our email exchanges, the ceremony she created made it seem like she had known us for years. It was extremely personal, sweet, and exactly what we were looking for. Our friends and family were extremely impressed! Kayelily was professional, responsible, kind, and supportive throughout the whole process. She also was extremely cautious with safety during these crazy times. We can't recommend her enough! If you are looking for the perfect officiant who will take the time to make the ceremony yours, please don't hesitate to reach out to Kayelily! Thank you again Kayelily! Jae and I are so happy you could be a part of our day!

  • Kayelily was amazing ! She took us through months and months of changed dates and changed plans during this difficult time (a pandemic ). She was super kind and responsive even if I just needed to express frustration. We finally married in her backyard !!! For Kayelily this is more than just a job. She truly gets satisfaction from bringing loved ones together and uniting soulmates in holy matrimony. Everyone at the ceremony was touched by her words. I would highly recommend Kayelily Middleton if you would love a heartfelt, warm, meaningful ceremony.

    Oh, thank you so much for your kind words, Risa! Despite all the changes in dates, I enjoyed working with you to make your dreams come true. As it turned out, your wedding in my garden was simply the best solution and included your family and Chris' mom. Melts my heart!

  • We were one of the many couples adjusting plans due to COVID-19. We could no longer have our mutual friend, but Reverend Kayelily was the best choice! She was flexible as plans changed by the day, she was responsible given the circumstances, and her assistance in creating a ceremony script was so helpful. Her words and energy made our day super special and we couldn't have been happier!

    Thanks, Emily! I am honored to have joined you and Mitch in marriage surrounded by your families! So happy it all worked out beautifully. Best to you both!

    Thank you, Jasmine! I was glad to help you all I could. I know getting the marriage license can be a challenge these COVID days so was happy to work with you on accomplishing that. Your wedding was beautiful and I know we were all thrilled that the sun came out and the rain stayed away. Blessings to you and Adaya!

  • Reverend Kayelily Middleton was the officiant for our leap day 2020 wedding, and we could not recommend her more highly. She listened to all of our concerns and then helped us design a customized ceremony for our wedding that shared our story with our loved ones. We have gotten so many compliments about the ceremony, including how entertaining Kayelily was, and how she must be an old family friend because it seemed like she’s known us for years. She is amazing at her job, probably because she has married thousands of couples! She guided us through the logistics of getting the marriage license, knew exactly what to do in the rehearsal, and will help design a ceremony just for you.

    Oh WOW, Jake! Thank you! I loved working with you and Brooke. You both have a wonderful sense of humor and great outlook on life as well as a wonderful relationship. Your love story was so much fun to tell your guests who had never heard that version. What laughter we had. I wish you both all the best.

  • Reverend Kayelily was perfect for our tiny weekday wedding, and we could not have asked for a better officiant. She was very concerned about giving us the ceremony we wanted, and she definitely did that and more (helping the photographer and chatting with my sister about shiny shoe clip-ins). Could not recommend her more highly. Thank you so much Kayelily!

    Thank you so much, Gayle. I am so happy that you found me and that I was available to officiate. You and Will are such a sweet couple and I could feel the love radiating from you two! My honor to join you in marriage! Blessings!

  • Reverend Kayelily created a unique and beautiful ceremony for our wedding that was tailored just for us. We had nothing but great compliments on our ceremony as Reverend Kayelily had done such beautiful work in telling our story. Not only that, but she also gave us so much help in organizing and giving us tips on wedding prep that we hadnt even thought of. Overall, I dont believe we could have picked anyone better to officiate our wedding.

    Thank you, Emilie! You and Russel were a delight to work with. I appreciate couples who take the time and creativity to be an integral part in scripting the ceremony. Your wedding was such a beautiful expression of your beliefs, love and commitment, and personalities and I thank you for choosing me to join you in marriage!

  • just now Absolutely the best!! I am so glad we found her, she truly made our wedding special. She is very good with high stress situations and helps out alot. I have never read/heard a ceremony so beautiful. She meets with you and ask you your background and any other information you want in the ceremony, she truly takes your life and writes it into such beautiful words. You the option of doing your own vows or she can take what you want to say and create vows for you. She sent us several different options of vows and introductory things. we went back and forth for a couple weeks changing an editing it and she was so easy to work with and had no problem editing those things to create something beautiful that was finely attuned to us. What I love about her is she will travel to any place you're having your wedding at or if you're having a smaller wedding she has a beautiful garden in her backyard called The Wedding Garden. she has Ann Arbor that she puts flower garlands on and benches ...

  • Kayelily was the perfect choice to officiate our wedding! When our wedding plans were significantly impacted by COVID, we had to adapt and we were lucky to find Kayelily had our availability on our scheduled wedding date. She was able to assist us with the marriage license process. The best part was the ceremony and vows which Kayelily provided to us and allowed us to add our own stamp on. Scheduling and planning our small ceremony was easy since Kayelily has done so many weddings in the area. Our intimate ceremony at the North Carolina Museum of Art was perfect! Despite these challenging times, we feel very fortunate we were able to still have our wedding while staying safe and Kayelily was so sweet, professional, and easy to work with. Whether you plan on having 50 guests or 5 at your ceremony, we would recommend Kayelily for your wedding officiant!

    Thank you, Jordan! It was my honor to join you and Ryan in marriage! You were great to work with and knew what you wanted. Yours was the sweetest wedding at a beautiful location which was perfect for the two of you and your gracious witnesses and their little daughters. Congratulations on your marriage and I wish you all the best!!
