  • 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!!

  • Although covid has thrown my now husband and I through the ringer, Michelle was one aspect that could not have been more perfect. Michelle is SO personable and genuinely wanted to get to know us as a couple to make the experience as individualistic as possible. She is very quick to respond to emails and answers all your questions and concerns! We are forever thankful for her agreeing to freeze outside in the cold at Letchworth State Park with us at our elopement. As someone who is immunocompromised, Michelle made myself feel very comfortable and remained masked at all times throughout the ceremony. I can not recommend her enough!!! 10/10 from start to finish.

  • 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!

  • Michelle was absolutely amazing! After the first officiant we booked completely ghosted us we contacted Michelle at YellowBird Weddings and she responded immediately and saved the day. I am so glad she did because literally every guest at our wedding came and told me what an amazing job she did. Our ceremony was so beautiful and personal and had everyone in tears. My husband and I were most nervous for our ceremony but it turned into the most calm and beautiful part of our day thanks to Michelle. I can’t not recommend her enough.

  • Michelle at YellowBird Wedding was the perfect officiant for our wedding. She made everything so simple during a time of stress! We communicated through email to set up a video chat to meet her and go over everything we wanted for our wedding ceremony. She checked in a few days before our wedding day which put me at ease. Michelle was professional but very personable which was great on such a stressful day. Her kind words during our ceremony brought tears to my eyes! She gave us exactly the ceremony we were hoping for! She literally made us laugh and cry! We are so grateful that we had Michelle officiate our wedding. We highly recommend her!

  • Michelle is AMAZING! She took the time to get to know a bit about us and incorporated that into a beautiful, passionate ceremony. She is so understanding and kind, especially since we had to originally postpone our wedding due to COVID. Our ceremony was exactly what we imagined and we can’t thank Michelle enough for that. We still have guests messaging us saying our ceremony and officiant was so very lovely.

  • During these crazy times we ended up having the most amazing day imaginable! Michelle was the perfect choice for us. The way she narrated our love story was so personal, as if she knew us for years. I'm so glad we didn't wait to have a big wedding. Covid decided for us; to slow it down, make it more intimate and share the day with our closest people. Michelle was so eloquent with her words and she helped us be more creative with ours. We wrote our own vows and we got to personalize the "with this ring" section because of her guidance. I couldn't be happier!!

  • Michelle is an amazing officiant. Her ceremony was absolutely beautiful and really captured the meaning of the day for us as a couple. Everyone in attendance only had high praise for the ceremony. She is extremely professional and really cares to make sure she adds personal details to her ceremony. I would highly recommend her!

  • 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.

  • Our ceremony was everything we wanted and more. Karen met with us for a little over an hour to get to know us before the big day! She was amazing and paid attention to small details which made the ceremony more personal and beautiful. The ceremony was short, simple, and sweet... absolutely perfect! It could not have been better!

  • 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.

  • 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.
