We contacted Rev. Celeste less than a month prior to our wedding date (We are Canadians who were traveling to Knoxville for a music festival). I could tell after conversations over the phone that she was a sweetheart who would go the extra mile to ensure our ceremony was special. She made our wedding day amazing - from the gorgeous set up she had crafted at her office (Her and a friend had painstakingly put a beautiful giant decal on the wall) to the content of the readings - it was perfect (And she managed this on really short notice) She is an extremely genuine person, I would recommend her as an officiant in a heartbeat.

Words cannot describe how amazing Celeste was at our wedding. Our venue wedding planner kind of dropped the ball the day of and Celeste took over and helped make sure all went well. The ceremony she put together was absolutely beautiful, guest are still talking about it weeks later. She truly does plan a ceremony that is individualized to each couple. She was truly amazing and I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. If you are looking for an officient for your ceremony you NEED to meet with this lady, you will not regret it!

Celeste was one of the best decisions we made when planning the wedding. She was beyond professional and provided a lovely, creative ceremony. One of our guests actually told us it was the mostly beautifully worded ceremony he had ever attended. I highly recommend her services!!

My husband and I were faced with what we thought was going to be an impossible task, finding an officiant in East Tennessee that could relate to us and capture what we wanted for our ceremony. My husband and I are not associated with a religion but have friends and family with very strong, very different religious ties. We needed an officiant that could make everyone feel included. Not an easy task. Meeting Celeste was like meeting an old friend. She just got us from the very beginning. Our ceremony was perfect. It was apparent that she had put lots of time and effort into making the ceremony unique to us. Because many of our guests had traveled from afar, she even made sure to say a little something to include them. After watching our wedding video and being able to relive the words of the ceremony, I am even more touched at how special Celeste made our day by just being part of it.

Celeste is absolutely wonderful! I recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant. Our experience couldn't have been more amazing. She took time to get to know me and my husband before our wedding day. She wanted to ensure she delivered on the vision we had for our ceremony. Celeste was our saving grace on the day of - she has an outstanding ability to calm. We are blessed that Celeste was our officiant. We are forever grateful - thank you Celeste!

Celeste was the perfect officiant for our wedding. I am so glad we found her. Her wonderful warm manor made our wedding wonderful. Being our second marriage we wanted a casual, comfortable wedding that truly represented us and our union. Celeste was incredible easy to work with and she made it effortless. Our ceremony was probably the easiest part of our wedding which I attribute to Celeste. Her flexibility to provide the exact type of wedding ceremony we wanted (even quoting our favorite song lyrics) made it perfect.

Celeste was hands down the best person out of all of my wedding vendors but beyond that she was absolutely perfect when it came to our ceremony. I live in Nashville, TN, we got married in Gatlinburg, TN. I spoke to a lot of ministers and it was very expensive to get someone who would personalize the ceremony for us. Celeste wrote our ceremony just for us and it was beautiful and she did it at a very reasonable price. She went above and beyond by traveling to Gatlinburg in the snow, and our wedding was outside on a covered porch. She customized 10 minutes before the ceremony to make it shorter for the colder weather. Even writing about her makes me smile just a little bit. I wish I could put into words how relieved I was after speaking with her on the phone to finally find someone who would make our ceremony special to us and not some memorized or "choose your options" ceremony. When I give her a 5/5 rating on everything I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

I cannot say enough positive things about this officiant and the ceremony she led for us. I am a Christian and my then fiancé is a nonbeliever. Celeste was able to write a beautiful ceremony that suited us both and held fast to our different beliefs. She was very open to our suggestions. We wrote our own vows and coupled with her words, had a lovely and very meaningful ceremony. Our particular event was tiny, but Celeste approached it as if it was the most important event in the world (which it was to us.) She will always have a wonderful place in our memories and our hearts.

Celeste was wonderful! She was so flexible with meeting us at our location, even going so far as traveling to a national park and performing the ceremony by a mountain stream. She seemed to truly care about our ceremony and customized it in a way that best fit us. She even gave us a special little gift and helped arrange a witness and photographer. I did not feel as if it was just another wedding to be done by her, but rather an opportunity to share in a wonderful and amazing experience. Thank you so much, Celeste! (And Laura!)

Celeste was a pleasure to work with! She worked with us to create the perfect wording for our ceremony and it was so romantic. She came to the rehearsal and made everything flow so well and on the wedding day, even when she had a concern about our wedding license being from the wrong county, she made everything as low-stress as possible!

Celeste MADE our wedding! She was so exciting to work with and we had so much fun planning and going through with the ceremony! We had a very eclectic ceremony and she perfected every idea that my husband and I considered. She was also very helpful in planning other aspects; willing to refer photographers, caterers, etc and to do anything for us that she was capable of. I cannot do her justice with words, but she was outstanding to have through the stressful planning and made the ceremony one people will talk to me about for years to come!
