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.

Celia was great from the very beginning! I was researching online for an officiant and i couldn't find what my fiance and i were looking for. The municipal building in our town provided a list and Celia was on there. From the very first phone call and email coordination i knew she would be the one. Her personality is infectious, she listens to what you want, and is clearly very experienced in this field. The speech she prepared for our wedding was so great, our guests were laughing and crying at the same time. She truly captured our love story. I received so many compliments from our guests about Celia. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a unique officiant.

Celia was fantastic to work with! She worked closely with us to create a ceremony that was a true reflection of us. Through every step of her planning, she kept us involved. Even with our busy schedules, Celia always made time for us using phone calls and or emails. She performed our ceremony at the brownstone on October 16th. Everyone raved about how beautiful the ceremony was and truly believed that she was a close family friend. Many people said that it was their favorite wedding ceremony because of how personalized it was. We would highly recommend Celia!

I found Celia in a list of recommend vendors from a venue's packet. I reached out to her and was lucky to find out that she was still free on my wedding day. She immediately offered some times to skype. I'm the type of person that prefers to meet some one to judge how reliable and professional they will be as well as get a good sense for their personality. I knew from all the reviews, I had to put that aside and skype if I didn't want to potentially lose an officiant that so many raved about. I knew Celia was the perfect one for us after that first skype call. She talked with us for hours! She was enthusiastic and personable. She worked closely with us to get to know us and capture our beautiful story. She takes her important role very seriously. She created a story unique to us that included how we met, our engagement, our qualities with just the balance of humor, love and tradition that we were looking for. She honestly hit our script right off the bat with version one, because she captured everything we said during our calls and in our questionnaires. After only skype calls and emails, you come to feel like close family friends with Celia, so don't even hesitate when she suggests to you about skyping!

As a bride, I really wanted to make sure I enjoyed the planning process and I wanted to work with professional vendors who also believed the planning process was part of the experience and joy of a wedding. Throughout the process, Celia always showed her excitement for our big day and clearly enjoys the part she has in other people's special day.

You can feel her warmth, excitement and expansive knowledge and experience as a celebrant - everything you could want in a celebrant. Her special touches were greatly appreciated such has the awesome box of goodies that came mailed to me with my signed contract.

She's very knowledgeable with what to expect on your big day, keeping me at ease and making sure I worry as little as possible about the process of the dress rehearsal, the ceremony, and the post event paperwork.

Now, onto the main event - the Ceremony speech. I tell you, I'm extremely impressed with her ability with words. I think we spoke over the phone about 2-3 times (I'm out of state) and the beautiful speech she was able to put together from a few short phone calls is nothing short of extraordinary. Guests were shocked to hear that I've only met Celia through my wedding planning and that we weren't close, family friends that have known each other for years. This is what they felt through her speech.

Her speech was truly unique to our story and was not your typical speech. At a good 20 minute timeframe, she spoke about how we met, our engagement story, each of our unique qualities and what we love about each other with the right amount of humor, love and inspiration. She stayed engaging throughout and everyone left the ceremony on a very positive note.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Celia. Besides being a truly talented writer and host, she's the type of confident, kind, inspirational person you'd want as your celebrant. She truly understands the role of a celebrant and someone you can count on from beginning to end.

My husband and I met Celia at the Tides Estate open house. From the moment we met her, she had a sincere, fun attitude that drew us to her. At that time, we were not sure what direction we were going in regards to an officiant. We had been considering using a family member or friend but as the wedding date got closer, it was not working out. I remembered I had Celia's card and we contacted her. She responded quickly and set up a phone consultation with me then a Skype interview with us both. She understood the unique dynamic we were going for (fun, laid back, personal, creative, and aspects of God). We both filled out the questionnaire and returned it to her so that she could tailor our ceremony to our liking. We reviewed it and made some changes. She called us to discuss the changes and guide us. The communication with her was flawless. Prior to the wedding, she sent us a little box with cute gifts like chapstick and other fun wedding day items. She helped us with the information for filing the marriage license and post ceremony process. We received a lovely card from her after the wedding and an e-mail with next steps. All our guests loved the ceremony. I was told it felt natural and not scripted. She truly gave us the ceremony I had imagined. She is extremely professional yet very caring. It felt like we knew her for years. We recommend her fully without any reservations.

Celia did an AMAZING job with our wedding ceremony! I am still getting comments about how it was "the best wedding ceremony they have ever attended." She personalized it and made it more than what we had hoped for. I ABSOLUTELY recommend her! Our guests got to hear a lot of things about my husband and I as a couple that really made it special and at my request she even included my dog, who was unfortunately unable to make it. We also had to plan our NJ wedding from Arizona and she made it so simple for us. I am SO very appreciative for her and the time and care she put into our ceremony. I could not have asked for anyone better!

Thank you to Celia Milton for officiating our beautiful wedding ceremony on 9/17/16 that we will never forget! After meeting Celia at an open house, I knew the search for an officiant was over and that my then fiancé (now husband) and I had to book her. She was always prompt, professional and provided us with sample readings and vows, etc. She worked with us closely to find just the right balance of meaning, sentimentality, humor, etc. for our ceremony. She genuinely cared about getting the tone just right for us. What really stood out for us is that she understood that we wanted a wedding ceremony that was unique, personalized, creative, and engaging. She took the time to make sure the script she created was absolutely perfect for us and we felt like she truly understood our love story and what was important to us. We received many compliments from our guests as well. Again, it was such a beautiful ceremony and we can’t thank her enough for being part of our day for making it so special. We are forever grateful and would highly recommend her!
