  • 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!

  • 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 ...

  • We booked Kayelily to be our officiant for our wedding on October 5th. Kayelily was the best choice we could've made! My husband and I live out of state, but she made it extremely easy to plan our ceremony and was very quick to respond to any emails or questions we had. I had multiple wedding guests approach me during the reception and tell me just how beautiful of a ceremony it was and how many even teared up hearing the beautiful words Kayelily put together about us. I loved how personal our ceremony was and I will always cherish the vows and special memories she helped us create of our day. We really appreciated all the hard work Kayelily put into our wedding ceremony and for helping make our wedding amazing! :) I would recommend Kayelily to any of my friends or family looking for a wedding officiant.

    Thank you, Emily! I love hearing that your guests enjoyed the ceremony although from their laughter during the ceremony, I suspected they were having a great time. I noticed some were sitting on the edge of their seats in rapt attention. You and Evan were a dream to work with and with the wonder of the internet, geographic distance really is inconsequential. Thank you for taking the time to write this review! Best always!

  • My husband and I chose to have Kayelily officiate our ceremony about a year before our wedding. We first found her based on the phenomenal online reviews and then scheduled a time to meet in person. At this meeting Kayelily walked us through her entire process for creating each ceremony and she also gave us helpful information on obtaining our marriage license and getting a name change after the wedding. We left the meeting confident that we'd be able to create a ceremony unique to us and our story, which was very important to us. Kayelily was helpful with input throughout the process, but also let us take our time on figuring out how we wanted the ceremony laid out. It's up to each couple how customized they'd like the ceremony to be. I can't begin to tell you how many people came up to us after the ceremony, wrote to us afterwards, and are still telling us months later how amazing the ceremony was. I would highly recommend working with Kayelily. She's professional, has a great ... Read more

    Thank you, Kathleen! I loved working with you and Matt and telling your wonderful story during your ceremony. I could tell the guests were really engaged and loving every minute. I love your feedback that they are still talking about your ceremony. That just warms my heart!

  • Reverend Kayelily officiated our wedding on April 13, 2019. She was so sweet and welcomed us to her home so that we can have our initial meeting and talk about the type of ceremony we wanted. She’s so down to earth and funny which helped make the planning process that more enjoyable. Kayelily was very thorough and even walked us through the process of getting our marriage license, marriage certificate and even changing my last name. She was so accommodating and allowed much flexibility so that our ceremony matched our personalities. My favorite part of working with Kayelily was that she had us answer questions about each- From those answers, she prepared our beautiful background story and even shared secret paragraphs about what we loved about each other during our ceremony. This made our ceremony so personal and special. So glad we chose Reverend Kayelily as our officiant. Thank you, Kayelily from from the bottom of our hearts!

  • Without Kayelily we wouldn't have been married - and I don't just mean it literally. She helped create and amazing story about how we met, what made us fall in love, and our journey together. She made the day so special and important, and even the guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. Moreover, we were both kind of scared about saying things out loud, so she said our vows for us and that was so helpful! Neither of us are religious and she took that into account to still make the most beautiful ceremony ever. I also have to say that I find her voice so pleasing to hear, and that was great during the ceremony too. She also coordinated her outfit with us which looked beautiful. Thank you again Kayelily, you're absolutely wonderful.

    Thank you for your kind words, your time in writing this review, and how quickly you posted it! Yours and Patrick's wedding was truly about the two of you and that is my goal--an expression of your love and commitment, your personalities and your beliefs. The way you each thanked your parents during the ceremony melted my heart! I wish you all the best!

  • My wife and I are very grateful for the wonderful and individual ceremony that Kayelily held for us. She is very professional and with her warm, kind nature she made us feel very comfortable during the preparations and on the wedding day. We feel blessed that we found her as our minister and will not hesitate to choose her again.

  • We had the pleasure of having Kayelily for our Christmas Wedding in December. She was amazing! She made our ceremony so unique and personal to fit us exactly. She even incorporated a bell ceremony that fit our Christmas theme and tied into Daniel's Irish culture. We still have family members that will bring up how awesome our ceremony was. Highly recommend!

    I loved your wedding and telling your story to the guests. The Celtic Bell ceremony was perfect for your Christmas wedding. I am so happy to hear that your guests are still talking about how much they enjoyed your ceremony. Congratulations to you and Daniel!

    Awww! I give you and Jesse 5 Stars too! Your guests were spellbound by the depth and sincerity of the words in your ceremony and I credit that to you! Many thanks for the glowing reviews!

  • Reverend Kayelily Middleton is an expert at what she does. She comes very highly recommended by several vendors, and stellar reviews. We didn't meet Ms. Middleton in person until the day of the rehearsal. We communicated via email and phone prior to that. She sends you a detailed questionnaire that you and your fiancé fill out together about your story and then has you write secret paragraphs about each other. She melds these together to tell a beautiful love story on your wedding day. Somehow without even meeting us she made it seem like she had known us forever! She customizes the ceremony exactly to your liking. All of my guests ranted and raved about how beautiful the ceremony was. Thank you so much for everything Reverend!!

    Thank you, Brooke! I give thanks everyday for the internet because it makes it possible for me to serve couples who live in other cities and/or have careers that keep them uber busy. It was so sweet to meet you and Chase for the first time at your rehearsal and put faces with the bride and groom I had come to know so well from the process of writing your perfect ceremony! Your mom, too! I thank her for finding me for you and texting me and getting the ball rolling for me to officiate. You and Chase are perfect for each other and I know you will have a wonderful enduring marriage. I am honored to have joined you in matrimony!

  • Kayelily was a joy. She is an awesome individual to have with you for your special day. Kayelily takes the time to get to know you, learn your story and truly make your ceremony special. Her attention to detail, professionalism and kindness makes it all worth it. We enjoyed our first meeting with her and knew that she was the best person to have with us. I loved our ceremony and appreciated the opportunity to make it our own. She's wonderful! I would highly recommend her for your event.

  • Kayelily was very easy to work with. She met with my husband and I about a year before we got married. Kayelily gave us all the information we needed to get our marriage license in Wake County, what we needed to provide her and deadlines. On our wedding day, she showed up about an hour before our ceremony and checked in with us. During our ceremony, both my husband and I were holding back tears because of how beautifully Kayelily was telling our story. After our ceremony, so many people were telling us how much they enjoyed our ceremony and personalized it was. If you are looking for an organized and experienced officiant who as a beautiful gift of telling a couple’s story, then book with Kayeliy.

    Hi Erica and Chris! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review about my services. You were great to work with and your story was so much fun to tell your guests. Your father, Erica, was sitting on the edge of his seat and I could tell he was enjoying every minute, Chris too! Lots of good laughter and a few tears too. I loved engaging your guests and making them feel like a part of the ceremony. I am so sorry that your wedding day was a rainy one and you didn't get to have your ceremony outdoors. But it was gorgeous anyway and everyone was dry and comfortable. Thanks for choosing me as your officiant!
