  • Michelle did an amazing job. I was dreading looking for someone to officiate our wedding, thinking it would be awkward and difficult. But Michelle made everything easy. The initial response was quick and our first face to face meeting went well. My husband and I are shy and not that talkative, but we felt comfortable with Michelle right away. It felt like meeting a friend for coffee. The ceremony was just what we wanted, (non-religious) filled with love, sincerity, and a few funny moments. Everyone had great things to say about Michelle afterwards. Thank you!!

  • Michelle was great from start to finish! I had seen her officiate a wedding before and knew I wanted her to do ours. Her ceremony was wonderful! She kept it non-religious, which was important to us, and focused on messages of love and finding your special someone. I especially appreciated the personal touches she put in. One of the first things she did when we booked her was she scheduled a meeting with us to get to know us as a couple so that she could personalize our ceremony and make our day special. We were planning our wedding long distance so I was worried about that part but she was super flexible and facetimed with us instead. We also ended up having a little fiasco with the marriage license on the day of but Michelle stayed cool, calm, and collected which definitely helped keep me from freaking out! I highly recommend her!

  • Michelle is everything you would want in an officiant - responsive, easy to talk to, down to earth, and someone who can capture your relationship perfectly! It can be a little nerve wracking having someone you don’t know officiant your wedding but Michelle will make you feel right at ease from day 1. Anytime I had a question about a reading or anything related to the ceremony, Michelle was very prompt with her responses. On the day of the wedding, she met with both of us separately to help ease our nerves and assure us that everything would go off without a hitch. We are still blown away by how beautiful our ceremony was and how she was able to perfectly encapsulate our relationship. We received so many compliments and will definitely be recommending her to others. THANK YOU MICHELLE!!

  • Karen did a great job officiating our wedding ceremony! She made our ceremony personalized and exactly what we wanted. She made sure to check in with us just before the ceremony and that really eased any nerves we may have had when walking down the aisle.

  • I couldn’t recommend Michelle enough! About a week before my wedding in September the person who was suppose to marry us told me they could no longer perform the ceremony. I frantically went searching and worked with Avanti Mansion to find Michelle. She was able to fit us in and she was amazing! Communicated so frequently and we were able to quickly take care of everything needed for the ceremony. While doing our ceremony it was like she had known us for so long! I can’t thank her enough. I would highly recommend Michelle for anyone getting married!

  • Michelle did our wedding on 9/14/19 at the Hayloft in the Grove. She came highly recommended by them. We are so thankful they did! Michelle nailed it at our ceremony. She included everything that was important to us like our children our family dog and my husbands obsession with hockey. People who were at the wedding raved about our ceremony and Michelle and how she incorporated my husbands son into our family vows. Without a doubt I would recommend her to anyone getting married that wants originality and exceptional service!! Thank you again Michelle!

  • We are not religious folks so when it can etime to choose someone to perform our marriage ceremony, I was a little unsure what to look for. I found Michelle through wedding wire. I read her reviews and nearly all over them were perfect 5 start raving reviews! I didn’t hesitate to contact her. I’m glad I did, she was easy to connect with and we set up an appointment right away. She’s easy going, and 100% non judgmental. She sat with us and got to know us and our story, and put together wonderful words for our ceremony that were unique just for us. She was super flexible and let us customize our Ceremony and vows as much or as little as we wanted. Working with her was a dream!

  • We can’t recommend Karen enough. When we first reached out, she was very quick to respond. She immediately scheduled an appointment to get to know the two of us. Karen kept us informed and walked us through the entire process. She is a true professional and delivered a personalized ceremony. Karen made our wedding day and our guests left commenting on what a beautiful ceremony she performed. We couldn’t have been happier - thank you Karen!

  • We had the pleasure of working with Karen Younus for our small, intimate wedding on August 18, 2019. She was both professional and friendly. She got to know us before our wedding and conducted the sweetest ceremony for our wedding. Karen worked with my husband for a surprise pre-vow speech and incorporated an emotional tree planting ceremony. I highly recommend Karen, she was simply delightful!

  • Karen Younus was the perfect fit for us. She had a beautiful ceremony prepared for us without us having to really think about anything. She asked our preferences, asked us questions about our life and how we met. It seemed that after our conversations she got a real feel for our personalities. That was further evident when we heard her beautiful words about our love and our relationship. It felt as if she knew us really well as if a friend or family member was officiating our marriage. We recommend Karen highly, you won’t be disappointed.

  • Karen was flawless in every way. She made everything so simple and very stress free. From the very first meeting, all the way though our absolutely perfect wedding day. Karen puts her heart and soul into making sure she doesn't miss a single detail, in making your ceremony as special as possible. She is so kind and genuine in every way, and working with her was a true gift. We wouldn't have wanted to experience our journey to marriage without her.

  • Michelle did an exceptional job officiating our wedding ceremony. Leading up to the big day, she was prompt in answering our questions and helpful in giving us ideas for our vows. We had an initial meeting with Michelle to get to know each other and from that first meeting we knew she would be perfect to officiate our ceremony. On the ceremony day, Michelle's words were absolutely BEAUTIFUL. We could barely keep it together! We received so many compliments from our guests. We are so happy we hired Michelle, she is an amazing lady!

  • After being disappointed by other officiants first impressions, my husband and I came across YellowBird Wedding. I knew from viewing her page that I wanted Michelle to do the honor for uniting us. She was friendly and supportive, so kind and had an absolutely beautiful speech to say about us. My husband cried the entire time. Even our family spoke highly of Michelle’s beautiful words. I HIGHLY recommend her, she made our ceremony amazing!
