  • Michelle was such an incredible part of our wedding experience. The ceremony felt authentic and meaningful and SO many people told us it was the best ceremony they had ever attended. Having Michelle officiate our wedding was one of the best decisions we made! We are forever grateful Xx

  • Michelle worked with us over the past year to craft a ceremony that felt completely "us". She was easy to work with, and open to any suggestions or thoughts we had. She took the time to meet us in person early on in our engagement in Brooklyn. We could tell right away that she was a warm and caring person who we could trust. She delivered the ceremony perfectly and was a calming presence during the rehearsal and the day of the wedding. What stood out to me most was how much Michelle GENUINELY cared about me and my husband and our ceremony. We are very lucky to have found her!

  • Michelle is absolutely the best of the best. We worked with Michelle to write our ceremony for my sister to perform as our officiant. She wrote the most heartful, thoughtful and beautiful ceremony for us. She managed to show our individuality in the ceremony, while also showing our partnership. She managed to tie our histories together in a way that perfectly showed how they led to our present and future. She weaved in our families and friends in without it being inside jokes and she told our love-story in a way that allowed everyone else to step into it for a day. We could not have asked for anything more in a ceremony. Beyond this, Michelle went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we need and offered to be boots on the ground as we planned our Maine wedding from Texas. She entered our lives for the wedding, but we know she will be in our lives forever because she is the kind of person you meet and immediately feel like she is family.

  • Michelle was the perfect person to help us navigate the scary task of writing our own ceremony for our friend to perform. As an event planner, I can vouch for her professionalism and experience with crafting unique and intimate ceremonies. I highly recommend her to all people who are looking for genuine advice on how to connect with your partner during the stressful wedding process! Absolutely amazing experience with her :)

  • Michelle is the absolute sweetest human you will ever meet! She puts her whole heart into making your ceremony heartfelt, sincere and emotional. We got married in June and after working with Michelle for only a few months before it felt like we had known her for years! We immediately clicked from our first phone call and we knew she was the perfect person to write and officiate our ceremony! During the whole process, Michelle was extremely helpful with everything, she made sure the ceremony was exactly what we were looking for (which it was and more!), she gave us advice for ceremony music, suggestions for readings and helped us with writing our own vows! We are so lucky to have had Michelle officiate our wedding. She made it more special than I could have ever imagined, everyone is still talking about how amazing it was! We cannot thank Michelle enough for making this big part of our wedding day so easy! I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a ceremony full... Read more

  • There just aren't words to explain how absolutely wonderful Michelle is, and the light she brings to your special day. She gives sound advice, but lets you run the show. She writes some very meaningful and personal ceremonies and to top it off she gives some killer hugs! It was quite serendipitous the way we found Michelle. We were pretty set on having someone we knew and who played a major role is us meeting, to marry us. Due to some unforeseen circumstances that didn't work out. We were pretty devastated by having to start looking for someone who could meet our needs and provide a ceremony that was uniquely ours. With a well placed google we landed on Swoon Union! Michelle did an amazing job at getting to know us as a couple, individually and especially what we wanted for our big day-even from miles and miles away. By the time she married us it felt like we had always known each other. You can be guaranteed her professionalism, joy and flexibility, as well as her efforts in providin... Read more

  • My fiancé and I planned our wedding in less than 3 months and assumed we'd be relegated to a rather generic ceremony. However, I was lucky enough to stumble upon Swoon Union via another vendor's IG page. After meeting her in person to discuss how we could make our ceremony a little more personal, we knew right away that we also needed Michelle to write and officiate. It was the smartest wedding decision we made. Through her process, Michelle got to know our history as a couple, what we wanted out of the ceremony, and what experience we wanted our guests to have. Just going through these steps made the planning more intimate and helped my fiancé and I focus on what we really wanted out of the day. The ceremony that Michelle wrote and officiated for us ended up being the most memorable part of our wedding, rather than the standard fare we'd expected at the start of planning. There were moments when every guest had tears in their eyes, and other moments filled with laughter... it inc... Read more

  • We absolutely LOVED working with Michelle! We had dreamed of an authentic, meaningful, genuine, sentimental ceremony, and Michelle helped us bring it to life! Michelle took the time to really get to know us - she helped guide us every step of the way, provided inspiration, and facilitated conversations between my husband and I that lead to a personal, meaningful ceremony. Every part of wedding planning can be a bit overwhelming, but working with Michelle put us completely at ease because we knew the ceremony was going to be so unique, full of love, and special. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Michelle and highly recommend her!

  • Michelle was one of the most integral parts of our day. Yes, it's true. We weren't sure what we wanted for our ceremony, coming from different outlooks on religion, and if we had not met Michelle, perhaps the ceremony would have been an afterthought. She was not going to let that happen, oh no. Honestly, it's daunting to meet up with a stranger and share your love story, intimate details, and all of the emotional things about your partner that make you want to get married in the first place. Michelle met us halfway in Portsmouth, NH to get to know one another in order to get what she needed to write her ceremony. Except, it wasn't really like that at all. She met up with us to ask questions, to listen, to understand what we were all about. She met up with us to have a beer, eat a snack, put us at ease, and genuinely care about us as people in order to craft the piece of writing that would ultimately become the words spokenin front of our nearest and dearest to share our intentions to l...

  • Michelle helped my wife and I with not only our wedding ceremony but also to keep our sanity during the wedding planning process. She sat down with us and really got to know us so that the ceremony we wanted was the one that we got. It wasn't the easiest thing to come up with the words that I would say in front of the friends and family that I cared enough about to have be part of our ceremony, but Michelle helped me to review drafts of my vows. This gave me the confidence that I needed to go into the wedding day with one less thing to be nervous about! Aside for help with the actual ceremony, it was great just to have her to talk to about the wedding process and to "talk us off the ledge" when other planning items felt like they were going south. She's done this enough that you can believe her when she tells you that things are going to be OK...which doesn't sound like much, but makes a world of difference sometimes!

  • What can I say about Michelle except how amazing she is?! Michelle was crucial in the writing of our ceremony for your wedding day. My husband and I were married in Scotland. While Michelle wasn’t able to marry us there, her magic ceremony writing was felt that day. Never before had I thought that we could have such a beautiful, meaningful ceremony! From the beginning she asked meaningful questions, all of which made the process enjoyable and easy. Thank you for everything, Michelle!

  • From our first conversation with Michelle, we were sure we found the right person for us. We were both very unsure of what we wanted out of our ceremony and Michelle had ways of helping us figure it out. She gave us a really wonderful exercise with thoughtful questions, many of which we never thought to ask ourselves or each other, which helped us with the ceremony specifically but also brought us closer. Michelle was so enthusiastic and genuine in every interaction it helped us realize how important the occasion was. As for the event, Michelle traveled 3 hours to join us! She came up the night before and spent a ton of time with us relaxing at the hotel and getting to know us and our family- way above and beyond what we could have hoped for. She even brought two thoughtful gifts for us. The day of, we had a large party bus to take us to Acadia. She rode with us- getting off at every stop and walking to all the attractions with us, even when some of our family went off on their own.... Read more

  • Michelle was a dream come true to find in the Maine wedding community. After not really thinking about having to "book" an officiant, I wasn't really sure where to start. Plus our extended families were split between very religious and not religious at all, so we needed a very unique standpoint to make everyone feel comfortable, but most importantly make it unique to us. We toyed with the idea of a family member officiating, but I'm so glad I realized that was NOT the way to go! Michelle's style was perfect for us. Modern, relaxed, fun...We had a 100% custom ceremony that was beyond PERFECT. It's all anyone could talk about at the reception. There was no other ceremony that they felt so engaged in. EVER! We put a lot of time into the discovery phase with Michelle, which actually felt a lot like the kick off point of our marriage. We uncovered deep emotions and recounted stories throughout our relationship that just brought these powerful feelings to the surface. We both surprised ourse... Read more

  • We feel so lucky to have had Michelle as our officiant! We were looking for an officiant that would help us craft an informal, lighthearted, but respectful ceremony, and she listened to what we wanted and gave us exactly that. Michelle not only wrote us the perfect ceremony, but she was also an awesome resource for practical wedding advice. She made herself available to answer any of those weird wedding questions where it’s helpful to have the perspective of someone outside of the family. Michelle is a very warm-hearted person and makes the stressful and nerve-wracking process of planning a wedding so much easier. Michelle has our absolute highest recommendation!

  • Michelle is THE BEST -- we literally cannot say enough good things about her. She delivered the most unbelievable, personal, love-filled ceremony we ever could have imagined- we are still in awe. She truly took the time to get to know us and it was evident (so many people asked "how we know Michelle" after the ceremony!). We would recommend Michelle to anyone who wants a genuine officiant and unique & personal ceremony!
