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.

My fiancé and I chose Celia to marry us after interviewing many, many other officiants. Our ceremony is scheduled for July 2015, so while Celia hasn't officially married us yet, we have been nothing but pleased with her so far. She's very friendly and responds to any questions you have asap. She seems to genuinely want to get to know you and be part of your special day. She's funny and experienced and able to answer absolutely any question you throw at her. Even the weird ones. She asks you all about your relationship and goals and uses your own personal love story in her ceremonies. I can't wait for Celia to marry us this year. We've only known her for a few months, but we were totally comfortable telling her our story. When you talk to her, she feels like an old friend.

Celia was absolutely wonderful. She was very responsive and on top of everything. She made our wedding ceremony sound like we knew her for years. In fact, we actually had wedding guests come up to us and ask how long we've known Celia for because the ceremony was so personal. I've never heard someone rave about a wedding ceremony, and we had people doing that for ours. Amazing. She was able to bring the groom's family (catholic) and brides family (non-denominational) together seamlessly to make for a great event. I would definitely recommend Celia to anyone!

My fiance, Charlie, and I wanted to have a small wedding with just immediate family and close friends (14 guests). Once we decided to have a small wedding, we started looking for an officiant, and were so happy to find Celia so quickly. Upon my first call with Celia, she gave me so much advice and support regarding our wedding plans, and really helped us take the next steps with what we had in mind. She actually gave us the suggestion to have our wedding at Ninety Acres (Natirar) in Peapack Gladstone, NJ, which was the PERFECT venue for us and our plans. Throughout the wedding planning process, Celia kept in touch through convenient FaceTime calls and via email. She drafted out our ceremony based on the calls and emails we had together, and she let us review it and send back edits, which I highly appreciated. On the day of our wedding, she was right on time, greeting both my fiance and I (separately) as soon as we both arrived. She spoke eloquently and warmly during the ceremony. She had a presence, but it wasn't overbearing by any means. It was a great balance to mark the seriousness of the occasion but the joyfulness of it as well. She did a fantastic job, and I'd recommend her to anyone. Plus, the extra advice and support she gave us throughout the wedding process was invaluable. (Celia - I wish you the best and all your future endeavors! Thank you for making our day a dream come true!!)

We are sooo glad we used Celia! From the very start we knew we had found the perfect officiant for us. She has a sense of humor, is clearly knowledgeable and is very willing to work with your vision or to help you find your vision if you don't already have one. We spoke to Celia numerous times during the process and went back and forth online until we all felt we had what we wanted. She is caring, resourceful and just awesome.

She checked in with me a few times the week of the wedding and called to reassure me the day before the wedding that all would be fine. That meant alot as my nerves were on edge. The day of, Celia was EARLY! She was prepared and everyone was very impressed. We had a friend (a pastor) in the audience who spoke very highly of Celia. She clearly knows her stuff. She's been doing this awhile and knows the vendors and can make recommendations also. HIRE HER!

Celia was absolutely fantastic. The ceremony that she delivered was exactly what my husband and I had envisioned: personalized, romantic, and lighthearted. Guests could not believe that she had only known us a few months prior to the ceremony as she made it sound like she knew both of us for years. In designing the ceremony, she really works with you as a couple to get to know you better and understand your vision. She drafts the ceremony and then together you work to revise it until it is perfect. I was hesitant at first to not get married in a church and have a "traditional wedding ceremony," but I am so glad we opted for Celia. She is an incredibly talented writer and speaker and she created a ceremony that my husband and I will both remember for the rest of our lives.

Celia made our wedding ceremony so incredibly beautiful, personal and special. From the moment you speak with Celia, you instantly hear the warmth and passion in her voice, for what she does. Throughout the process, she got to know us on a personal level, you'll feel like she's family by wedding day. She takes what you envision, what you believe in and what's important to you, and creates the most wonderful ceremony script. She edits, and edits, until you feel everything is exactly how you want it. She is so patient and responds immediately to anything you need. We loved filling out her questionnaire, there are some great questions on there!! Celia, thank you for making our wedding ceremony absolutely perfect!! We laughed, we cried and we are still getting compliments til this day!!

What can we say about Celia other than she was so far beyond our expectations as an officiant, our families were elated and catholic mass was a foreign thought to them! Our families are not "religious" in the strictest sense but the idea of getting married outside a church was not an easy concept for his family especially. We first Skyped with Celia and honestly we both knew right there in a half hour time span that we had found our person. Celia was personable, charismatic, hysterical and lovely through the entire process which put us both at ease. We knew that our ceremony was going to be exactly what we wanted but never expected for our guests to be so impacted by it as they were. For my mother to ask me where Celia was right after we saw her in cocktail hour showed that she was still on cloud 9 because of Celia's words, her delivery and peaceful tone. We were so happy and elated by our ceremony and the journey with Celia we would highly recommend her services to any couple who wants to be different, enjoy the process and have guests rave about their ceremony, Celia is the one for you!

Celia is a master in her profession and was the perfect fit for us. Her enthusiasm and comical nature was a welcomed relief as we prepared for our special day. We had a certain vision for our wedding ceremony--we wanted it to be romantic, personalized, engaging for our family/friends, a truly unique experience and that it was! From the onset of planning the ceremony until the day of our wedding, Celia was professional, friendly, thoughtful and attentive. She has a gift for asking the right questions which enables her to create a very personalized and meaningful ceremony. With what felt like minimal input from us, she designed a ceremony script which we were able to preview before our special day to ensure it was all inclusive of our vision. In addition to Celia’s top notch writing skills, her delivery of the words put to paper was what brought it all home. We, along with our audience laughed, cried, smiled and cheered at various points during the ceremony...it was perfect. Important to note as well, although Celia’s service is priceless, her fee is very reasonable.

I was actually surprised at how Celia took what I thought would be something of a pro forma occasion and turned it into a profound ceremony with so much meaning that -- despite our casual approach to it -- has become a hallmark of our lives. Our tears were evidence of the effect she had. Thank you Celia for bringing that meaning to our marriage.
