As a NY, NJ, and CT wedding officiant and life-cycle celebrant certified by the Celebrant Foundation and Institute, my goal is to give you the wedding of your dreams--one that reflects your unique personality and style. A wedding that your family and guests will say truly reflects who you are as a couple.

Because you want your ceremony to reflect YOU.

Maybe you are looking for a spiritual but non-religious wedding service. Maybe you are an interfaith couple or have several faith or cultural traditions you want to include in your ceremony. Perhaps you are a same gender couple trying to find an officiant who sees your vision for your wedding, civil union, or commitment ceremony. Maybe you are an indie bride or groom who wants to get married barefoot in an open field of flowers or a bowling alley. No matter what you are looking for, it is most likely not a cookie-cutter ceremony that doesn't tell your story, even if you want something more traditional.

I help tell your story.

My job and my joy as a wedding celebrant and officiant is to listen to your story and help you create a wedding or civil union that reflects who you are on your special day. Together we will craft a ceremony that you will remember for years to come, complete with a lovely keepsake copy as my gift to you.

Congratulations!

Kelly Lemons

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

Agnostic, Baha'i Faith, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Shinto, Taoist
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes!
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Usually a suit, unless the ceremony is more casual.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
This is the essence of what I do! I work closely with you to find out what tone and emotions you and your guests want to take away with you on your special day. Then we get specific about your love story, vows, readings, rituals, etc. You have final say over every word that is spoken. It's YOUR ceremony!
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Of course! I am happy to give guidance in this area and look at the vows, especially if you are keeping them a secret from each other, but still want someone to look at them.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
No! I offer a selection from my large library of readings based on the "vibe" I get from your answers in our interview, but you definitely have access to the library to find something else.
How long are your ceremonies?
Anywhere from 10-30 minutes usually, depending on how many readings, rituals, etc. we do.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes.
Do you supply a sound system?
Yes, if needed, I have a portable PA.

Kelly was so wonderful! We loved working with her and she was so great and patient with us through the whole process. She delivered on her promise on a heartfelt and customized wedding ceremony. It was the most amazing day and we couldn't have been happier with Kelly for making it so special!

Kelly was the BEST part about our wedding. Afterall she was the one that married us. I am catholic and my husband is jewish so having a religious ceremony was becoming difficult. nor was it something that we were interested in. I can honestly say that we had, the most romantic, meaningful ceremony ever and Kelly helped us do that. She captured what getting married was all about...not the flowers, music or dress or venue. It was about love, I married my best friend and love of my life and she was able show that in our ceremony. Kelly can make anything you want happen. A 5 star rating isnt nearly enough. Shes amazing.

We interviewed more officiants than any other vendor for our wedding. It was very important to us that we found someone who understood what we were looking for and would put together a ceremony that fit us. Kelly did more than that. She not only listened, but asked many (very many) questions to get to know us and crafted a ceremony that told our story beautifully and had us both fighting back tears of joy as we exchanged our vows. Thank you, Kelly, for making our day so special.

Kelly was our celebrant for our March 2010 wedding. From beginning to end, working with her was wonderful. She was very thorough, got to know us very well, and was a professional through and through. The end result was a beautiful and memorable ceremony that perfectly captured us as a couple. I can't recommend Kelly enough!!!

We had a very particular brief for our ceremony, we wanted something that reflected us, the types of people we were, something human, down to earth, engaging and meaningful - funny even. We also wanted someone we instantly felt comfortable with. Having met one or two others, we finally found kelly. From our initial meeting at Starbucks it was clear that Kellys approach was perfect for us. All she wanted to know about was us. About how we met, about why we love each other, about what makes us laugh. Her method of building a ceremony around those intimate, human insights, and the flexibility to work with us on a couple of drafts made it a ceremony that was totally reflective of what we were looking for. Added to this all our friends and family commented how refreshing an approach it was. We could not recommend Kelly highly enough! leigh and agnes

Kelly Lemons helped make our Wedding Day a "Truly" memorable event at the Empire State Building on 2/13/10. While my husband and I wrote our personal wedding vows, Kelly was very patient with us. In addition, she took time out from her busy schedule to review them before our ceremony. Kelly is a very friendly, respectable, and professional person. We highly recommend Kelly Lemons as a Wedding Officiant and Celebrant~ Thank you, Helen & Pete C.

Kelly was great! Exactly what we needed. As a nonreligious couple, we were looking for a ceremony that was still full of tradition but not extrememly religious. Kelly listened to excatly what we wanted and delivered!

Kelly’s writing skills were very impressive. She took both our questionnaires and turned it into a great love story. She was responsive, and incorporated and transformed our answers into a sweet story the day of.We did not want to say our own vows and she read them aloud and incorporated them into the story. It was very lovely and we got the exact feeling we expected and wanted from the ceremony. The only thing is she arrived very close to the start time and made the groom nervous but ultimately made it on time. I recommend putting in extra buffer time.

Thanks so much for your review! Again, I am so very sorry I was only fifteen minutes early versus my usual thirty plus minutes as I was trapped on the FDR. :) I hope you will feel free to email or call me with suggestions on how I could increase my numbers for value and flexibility going forward. I was so honored to be part of your day! xo Kelly
