  • Michelle was amazing and took the time to get to know us and our story, she was a complete trooper when we told her it would be outside at Hoyt lake in February and it ended up being the most perfect day. It started snowing the night before and was a complete winter wonderland for our vows. It was a beautiful ceremony and I would recommend her to anyone!! Thank you so much for helping us to create the perfect day!!

  • Being a wedding professional myself, I've seen Michelle in action at weddings and knew she was just what we wanted for our intimate wedding. As soon as we met with Michelle, my Fiancée was on board with the idea of hiring her for our wedding. Michelle was on time, professional, polite, and a charming addition to our family gathering. I highly recommend YellowBird and I'm so glad we hired her to marry us.

  • Michelle was fantastic from start to finish officiating my Oct 2020 wedding. She was willing to travel outside of Buffalo to Ellicottville, and made the process so easy - our guest raved about what a beautiful ceremony it was, and were so impressed by her. We would recommend Michelle in a heartbeat!

  • We had the joy of working with Karen for our wedding ceremony! Throughout our two year engagement, multiple venue changes and date postponement due to COVID, Karen continued to be attentive, responsive and genuinely cared about us! We were able to meet in person last year for a thorough consultation, and she allowed us to personalize our ceremony to exactly what we wanted. Planning a COVID wedding is 2x as stressful as a normal wedding, but we felt completely confident in Karen and the ceremony aspect of planning, and she delivered! We will always cherish the video of our ceremony and the sweet words she shared. If you are looking for someone who genuinely cares, will give you that personalized experience and is super kind we would 10 out of 10 recommend! Happy planning :)

  • Michelle was incredibly responsive, professional, and made our ceremony feel like it was performed by a friend. After a few "flakey" interactions with another officiant, we were a bit nervous, but she put our minds at ease. She was willing to provide guidance on the content and structure of our ceremony, but also to include elements we really wanted. Our guests all commented on what a great job she did. She was willing to travel to Ellicottville, and was great about COVID concerns. We would recommend her to anyone considering an officiant.

  • My husband and I wanted a Halloween wedding this year. Michelle was so enthusiastic about the idea. Everything from start to finish was so easy with her. Michelle is easy to talk to, flexible, and understanding. My husband and I didn’t want to read our written vows, so Michelle helped us chose vows that we loved and were comfortable saying during the ceremony. The words she spoke included little moments of our life that she gathered by previously chatting with us, which made the moment so special. Our family commented, long after Michelle had left, what an amazing job she did. We were so happy with choosing Michelle as our officiant for our Halloween wedding.

  • Michelle at YellowBird Wedding is the best of the best. Our ceremony was so special and personal that all of our guests thought Michelle was someone we had known for years. Michelle is truly gifted at officiating and we feel so lucky that we were able to have her perform our ceremony. Absolute cannot recommend YellowBird Wedding enough, they made our day perfect!

  • Michelle was a pleasure to work with and was an absolutely wonderful officiant. Michelle took the time to get to know us, accommodated our change of date (due to COVID) and emailed us every so often to check in. Michelle was always very easy to get a hold of and was extremely helpful when we had random questions about officiating, our marriage license, and how the day would look. Our guests all commented on how great of a job Michelle did at our wedding. The words she spoke were beautiful, well-crafted, and specific to us as a couple. Hearing Michelle bring up some of our special moments made my wife and I tear up and took us back to some of our first moments as a couple. If you’re looking for an officiant, I would absolutely recommend Michelle and Yellowbird.

  • My fiance and I were very happy with Michelle's idea of a wedding ceremony. In the months that we worked with her she was very attentive and always responded very promptly! Unfortunately we had to reschedule our wedding and Michelle was not available for that date. We are bummed she won't be able to officiate but we would definitely still recommend her to anyone! Thank you Michelle!

  • Michelle from YellowBird Wedding was absolutely wonderful. Not only did we love her because she is a librarian and we had a book themed wedding, but she was also friendly, professional, and really personalized our ceremony for us. I would hire her ten times over. Highly recommend!

  • Let me start by saying from the moment I reached out to Michelle, the professionalism never stopped. My now husband and I were caught in a pickle because our initial officiant ghosted us about three weeks before the wedding. I know crazy right. Well I found Yellow Bird Wedding after searching on google. I sent Michelle an email and though she could not be part of our ceremony that day, she had another event that day, she had someone else in mind that works with her, her sister Karen Younus. Michelle sent me an email and talked to her sister before I believe even sending me an email. Before I knew it both Michelle and Karen emailed me. Michelle stated Karen would be wonderful and she was just that..WONDERFUL!!! Karen set up with my schedule a time that worked for Arthur and I to video chat. We did. Karen was very easy to talk to and calmed my nerves through that conversation. She sent has different vows we could use encase we didn't write our own..we didnt. The ones she sent us fit lik...

  • Michelle did a great job writing the ceremony. Because of covid we were never able to meet in person before the wedding only one quick phone call. We had a small ceremony with only our closest family and every person after came up to us and said how much they enjoy the ceremony and how great it was. Michelle was also very flexible as we had to change our date and our venue multiple times. Worked out great in the end I would highly recommend using Michelle.
