You've said, "I will!" Now, how will you say, "I do"?

With all the style, humor and personality that makes you, well, you!

"Congratulations" is often the first word that follows, "We’re getting married!" Usually, the next ones are, "Tell us about the ceremony!" Panic follows; you're certainly not boring and predictable; how do you make sure your wedding ceremony won't be that way?

The ceremony may seem like the most confusing piece of the puzzle. Of course, you want a ceremony that will mark your important commitment, but a traditional church setting may not be appropriate for you. You need an officiant who can help you create a ceremony that is spiritual and inspiring, without language or symbolism that restrictive or cliche.

And that is exactly what we can do together! As a Civil Celebrant, I've been uniquely trained to blend tradition, innovation, and ritual for the couple that wants an imaginative and personal wedding ceremony. You can truly have the celebration that you have dreamed about without compromising your personal beliefs or style! Your ceremony might be the first one your guests have ever listened to!

Who am I?



Honestly, it's not about me, but it is about us, so here goes! I bring a unique blend of talents to my work as a Celebrant. As an event planner, I have helped to orchestrate weddings and commitment ceremonies for over 20 year. As a motivational speaker, I create an atmosphere of excitement, of introspection and discovery. As a writer, I draw on a rich variety of traditional and contemporary resources, blending the inspiring and the significant with the humorous.

I have the best job in the world! I help my couples express themselves in ways that are truly meaningful to their families and friends. It is a wonderful way to start your journey as wedded partners in life!

Let’s talk!
about including children, pets, relatives or other special guests in your ceremony. about including traditions from your backgrounds or creating new ones. about readings, music and art that you love. about celebrating milestone anniversaries and renewal of vow ceremonies. about searching for unusual and charismatic sites for your wedding or commitment ceremony. about the five other officiants who work with me.

I chose Celia based on watching her interactions in the Wedding Wire community- and when it came to make a decision of "who should we pick" I had no question. she's first and foremost extremely professional. Beyond that- she is personable and charming and very pragmatic and down to earth.

And she's been a steadfast guiding resource and support through this process above and beyond the simple duty title of "officiant". I would recommend her to ANY bride who wants an officiant who will take the time to make them feel genuinely special and unique.
I blissfully confident when our day comes- no matter WHAT happens- I'm going to have an amazing ceremony- because I have an amazing officiant. Worth.Every.Penny.

Celia was a fabulous officiant! Right from the initial phone conversation, she had unique and special ideas for the ceremony. She was extremely responsive and very easy to talk to. The planning process was so fun, as my fiance and I filled out a questionnaire that allowed Celia to have a glimpse into our relationship and what it is that we love about each other. The way she pieced everything together for the ceremony script was just lovely! She also welcomed our ideas to truly make the ceremony extremely personal and unique. When our wedding day came, she was professional, but laid back and fun - a wonderful combination! She spoke so eloquently and everything just came together perfectly! Afterwards, so many guests mentioned how they absolutely loved the ceremony, for the personal and special details and also for the wonderful personality that Celia added to it. Not only was the ceremony incredibly special to my husband and me, it was special to all of our guests as well. Thank you, Celia!

From the very beginning Celia was prompt, helpful, and extremely professional. Krista and I appreciated her kindness, candor, and humor during the entire process of our wedding. On the day of the wedding, Celia showed up early to get everything in order and gave us a great ceremony. The entire day turned out nearly perfect, and Celia was a large part of that. Many of our guests spoke glowingly about the ceremony, and we were very lucky to have someone like Celia to help us with everything.

I would absolutely recommend anyone and everyone to work with Celia whenever possible.

As my (now) wife and I were interviewing prospective officiants over Skype, we felt most comfortable with Celia. We never regretted our decision to work with her. Throughout, we felt that she really “got us”--two scientists whose families practice different religions. Celia gave us a detailed questionnaire to fill out, and she used it to create a completely personalized ceremony for us that included our "love story" and a moment of remembrance. After that, she worked closely with us through several revisions.

The end result was a ceremony that we felt was truly representative of our personalities and priorities. We felt very well taken care of on the day of the ceremony, as Celia’s experience and calm attitude put us at ease. Our guests were also blown away - many of them reported to us or our family that it was the best ceremony they had ever attended. We had at least one guest request Celia’s contact information that very day.

We strongly recommend Celia to couples who want to craft a personalized, meaningful ceremony, and we commend her for her hard work and professionalism. Thank you, Celia!

We loved working with Celia and she made our day incredibly special.

Initially we met with three officiants, and while Celia was the most expensive (still very affordable), we both felt she would be the best fit for our personalities. She is warm, friendly and approachable!

We subsequently scheduled calls with Celia three additional times to review aspects of the ceremony. Celia was always on time, if not early for all of our calls. She got to know us, send us a couple's questionnaire, drafted our ceremony, went over it with us, made a few minor adjustments and sent us a final draft. The process was smooth and easy!

Our ceremony reflected our personalities, and had the perfect blend of touching and humorous moments. After our ceremony, almost all of our guests complimented the ceremony and Celia's one of a kind style. I would recommend Celia to anyone in the market for an officiant!

Celia performed our wedding ceremony on June 5th of this year. She was referred to me by my now husbands cousin who used her as well, although I already knew about her from her million reviews on wedding websites. She was nothing but wonderful from start to finish. She had us fill out a little questionnaire about our relationship which followed a Skype meeting about what kind of ceremony we wanted, the style we were going for etc...a few months later she sent me our ceremony and I was blown away! From a few conversations and our questionnaire she was really able to put together the perfect ceremony that had the feel and essence of our relationship. She was always quick to respond and very thorough with my many questions. On the day of I got so many compliments about the ceremony saying it was so unique and entertaining and that people had never witnessed anything like it. I recommend her 100%. Not only is she a great officiant but she's a wonderful person as well.

We actually had another officiant but she passed away suddenly and unexpected. I rushed onto WeddingWire were I wrote I was looking for an officiant as it was an emergency I only had 2 months to find a new one! Celia came to the rescue. We emailed back and forth and she set we up with Cari another officiant she works with. They were both AMAZING. Cari wrote a beautiful and humorous ceremony script for our wedding. We were married on June 04, 2016! Let me tell you I received compliments on how well Cari did. They guest enjoyed the ceremony ( it wasn't something they just had to sit thru) She made it fun and entertaining. I can't being to THANK YOU enough. We had the best day we could have imagined! Love, Beth and Brian :-)

Celia made our day! It was very important to us to have someone open minded, as we wanted a nonreligious ceremony. Celia took on the challenge and made our ceremony amazingly special despite this. She helped us craft a ceremony that was simple and sweet and super personal to us. I am so thankful for her.

We met Celia Milton at a wedding expo event at the Olde Mill Inn (our venue) and immediately loved her whole vibe. Professional, but modern and fun. Celia has been doing this for awhile and had a long list of optional components\readings\rituals that we could include to personalize our ceremony. She was very responsive to all of our emails, made time to meet with us any time we had questions, and really put our minds at ease. She is also ready to recommend vendors she's personally worked with, so don't hesitate to ask her. Celia asked a lot of questions about us individually and as a couple and really made our ceremony a very personal experience. After the ceremony, many of our guests asked her how long she had known us and were shocked when they found out she wasn’t a long-time family friend. I know it can be tempting to ask a close friend or family member to officiate, but it really makes a difference having someone with a great presence and public speaking experience up there to guide you through 30 of some of the most important minutes of your life.

Our ceremony was our favorite part of our wedding, thanks to Celia!

Celia helped us to create the perfect atmosphere at our ceremony by her careful choice of wording and her flawless delivery. She was fun to work with throughout the whole process, and understood exactly how to communicate "us." She is a beautiful writer, and was also open to our additions/revisions. Her speaking voice at the ceremony was the most engaging I have ever heard. The result was truly perfection!

Many of our guests have asked for her contact information, with plans to use her for their own, their families', or their wedding industry clients' ceremonies.

I cannot recommend Celia enough!
