Kezia Bacon became a Certified Lifecycle Celebrant because she loves helping people honor and celebrate the milestones in their lives. She has extensive training in writing and performing creative, meaningful, personalized ceremonies, with a specialty in weddings. Kezia was certified by the Celebrant Foundation & Institute in 2010, and earned her licensure as a Massachusetts wedding officiant and non-denominational minister.

Kezia says, “My goal is to create a ceremony that is relevant to you, a ceremony that truly reflects who you are. It’s all about what you want, what suits you, what represents your beliefs and values -- whether it’s formal or informal; traditional, alternative or multicultural; religious, secular, interfaith, or spiritual-but-not-religious. We work together to make it happen. And there are no surprises. You get to sign off on every single word.”

Telling a couple’s love story – it’s Kezia's favorite thing about performing wedding ceremonies. It brings everyone in the room together, and makes them feel closer to the couple. And the story is so important – it’s what the couple has already been telling their friends and families, the one that will be passed down through the generations.

As a professional writer, Kezia has extensive experience putting words together and making them flow. As a Kripalu yoga teacher, she brings a much-welcomed sense of calm to the sometimes unsettling process of planning a wedding. She is also available for Vow Renewals, Baby Blessings and Child Welcoming Ceremonies. Read less

We planned our wedding in a relatively short four-month timeframe, and Kezia did an amazing job of helping us through the whole process, from the practical (but critical!) details like getting our marriage license, to the very personal process of creating our ceremony. When the big day came, she did a fantastic job, and many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony. The fact that Kezia was always so organized and on top of the details relieved us of what could've been a lot of stress. And even more importantly, her approach to the whole process ensured that the ceremony ended up being everything we'd hoped it could be, and uniquely "us."

My husband and I were so thrilled with the ceremony Kezia helped us create. She did a beautiful job officiating, and she was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish.

Kezia is super organized, responsive and professional - you can tell she is a seasoned pro! She guided us through many options to consider for vows, readings, and ceremony rituals, helping us create a ceremony that was truly "us" and that expressed our wishes for our marriage. We loved that we didn't have to stick to any standard "wedding script" - Kezia expertly facilitates a personalized ceremony, and she can help you choose the perfect vows if you are not writing your own.

Kezia is super thoughtful, and she has an absolutely wonderful personality. Several of our guests commented on how fantastic she was, and some even asked us if we knew her personally (we didn't) because she officiated with such sincerity and genuine warmth.

If you are looking to create a personalized wedding ceremony, Kezia is your officiant. She gives you a great ceremony "framework" to start with, and you can customize each and every part of it.

I cannot write enough wonderful words about Kezia and the exceptional job she does. We are so grateful that we found her and that she was able to officiate our wedding.

Kezia provided us with all of the elements we needed to plan our wedding ceremony. From the beginning she was helpful and very professional. We received several drafts of our ceremony and worked with her to create the perfect content for our ceremony. We did not need much editing as her first draft neared perfection! On our wedding day the feedback of our ceremony was very positive. Our guests said that there was "not a dry eye" in the audience; moreover, guests that have been married for a long time said it "made them want to get married again". She told our story perfectly with just the right combination of romance and humor. My cousin said she was "on the edge of her seat waiting to hear the rest of our story" We were thrilled with her services and will recommend Kezia to all of our friends and family.

Kezia is a wonderful officiant. I would wholeheartedly recommend to her anyone who wants to have a very special (and well organized!) ceremony. As several other reviews mention, she uses a questionnaire that couples fill out to help her craft a very personalized script for the ceremony, using the couple’s own words. And she lets couples edit the script until they are completely comfortable/happy with it – which we really appreciated. She is very flexible about how the ceremony script is structured, and offers lots of different options for various elements in the ceremony – e.g., readings, rituals, vows, etc. – along with abundant examples to give couples inspiration and ideas for how they’d like their own ceremony to be. In our case, we decided to have a very informal and participatory style, with each of our family members doing a brief reading (which they either selected or wrote themselves) during the ceremony. We loved it! The whole thing felt very “us” – which is in large part due to Kezia’s guiding process and her flexibility. Kezia was kind, understanding, supportive, responsive, and clear throughout the entire process. She also was very organized, and deftly accommodated our extremely tight turnaround (planning a wedding in three weeks flat!). We were worried about hiring a “random person” we didn’t know to officiate (we had hoped that a friend would officiate, but our turnaround was too tight). Through pretty much dumb luck, we stumbled on Kezia’s profile on weddingwire.com and really liked what we read in the reviews and on her website. We’re grateful that people had written really helpful reviews about her approach, which really made us feel comfortable hiring her. I hope this review similarly inspires others to work with Kezia. I am deeply grateful for the pivotal role she played in making our wedding special and memorable. The way the ceremony turned out – I can only describe it as perfect. And that was in large part thanks to Kezia.

Kezia was amazing! She was such a pleasure to work with and coordinate our unforgettable and wonderful wedding ceremony with! When initially planning our interfaith ceremony, we knew it was going to be a bit of a struggle as I am Catholic and my husband is Jewish. But no fear, Kezia helped us put together a wonderful wedding ceremony that had guests laughing and crying and tied our two different faiths together beautifully with different traditions, explaining each and their meaning. We absolutely enjoyed our experience working with Kezia the entire time! Of everyone I had to correspond with throughout wedding planning Kezia was by far the most responsive and got back to you so quick! I really appreciated that because sometimes you just had a quick question or something you needed answered and she was able to respond right away! Kezia was also extremely organized and would set deadlines which we found SO helpful! Wedding planning can definitely become overwhelming but having deadlines and trying to meet them is a great idea to make sure you stay on task! The wedding ceremony is the major focal point of your wedding day so it is important NOT to rush this piece of your planning and to make sure it turns into something you and your spouse absolutely love and are excited about to share with all guests in attendance!

Kezia helped us to remain calm throughout the entire process and also on the day of our wedding, she is a great speaker and writer! Kezia also helped to make our wedding ceremony unique and different from other ceremonies! In fact that was one of the main compliments we received about Kezia and our ceremony was that it was unique, heartfelt, interesting and very well put together! Our family and friends absolutely loved Kezia as well!! She did an amazing job and I would HIGHLY recommend her!!! Thank you Kezia for making the wedding ceremony planning and our special day so wonderful and amazing!!

Hiring Kezia to officiate our wedding was easily the best decision we made throughout the entire process. We're not particularly religious, but still wanted a meaningful ceremony and had no idea where to start. From the beginning we felt significantly more comfortable with Kezia than with other officiants that we had talked with. We also had the opportunity to meet her in person and talk through the process before officially hiring her, which added to our comfort. She made the overall process really easy and straightforward. We each answered a number of questions about our relationship and she gave us a ton of readings and vow options to choose from. We also picked a few rituals to add to the ceremony to make it really unique to us. Based on our answers, she put together an amazing ceremony that truly told the story of our lives together. We got a ton of compliments on the ceremony and it was the perfect fit for us as a couple and a great way to kick off our lives together. She was incredibly responsive leading up to the wedding and helped coordinate the ceremony with our other vendors as well. We had an amazing ceremony almost entirely because of her.

My first review got cut off somehow. Sorry. Here it is in full:

My wife and I feel like we really lucked out in finding Kezia online. We've received multiple compliments about her in the days following our wedding. Guests really liked her story-telling style and personality. We were looking for a non-religious but meaningful vibe, which she delivered. All we had to do after meeting with her was fill out some questionnaires, which she turned into a well crafted story about our history, with some fun anecdotes the crowd seemed to enjoy. She's a good writer and speaker. She was a very calming presence before and during the ceremony, particularly for the groom. Kezia coordinated all cues/etc. with the DJ so we didnt have to worry about it. She showed up super early on the day of to avoid any potential traffic (holiday weekend). And she's been very prompt since the wedding in following up about our marriage license. Thank you Kezia.

Kezia is the real thing! She helped us create an unforgettable ceremony that was heartfelt, funny, and unique. She has a way about her that kept us calm through everything and yet on task to meet deadlines for the questionnaires and writing of our vows. Our family and friends cannot stop talking about how special our ceremony was and how they'd never experienced anything like it...look no further, Kezia is it!

Planning a wedding on a tight budget, we were hesitant to make the expense to hire Kezia, but rest assured our wedding ceremony was worth every single cent. If you're going to splurge on one thing for your wedding, let it be this.
As a same-sex atheist couple, we were nervous about finding someone to marry us who would give the type of ceremony we hoped for.

The thing that was so delightful about our ceremony was the specificity. We all know most of the wedding ceremony by heart and while I wondered if not having "in sickness and in health, for better or for worse..." would detract from the feel, it did just the opposite. Without the droll of a traditional ceremony, we found that special feeling that many ceremonies lack. As I stood at the altar and looked out at my friends, family, and, I'll admit, a few unfamiliar faces, I saw the love I was feeling for my wife in that moment in each and every single person's eyes. There wasnt a single dry eye in the crowd.

Whether you're looking for something traditional or something that's anything but,Kezia will make it special for you. We had say in every single step of the process and tons of help and guidance. Our ceremony truly set the perfect tone for the beginning of our marriage and every single person who came to congratulate us told us how much they loved the ceremony. I read this in the reviews, but I didn't realize how amazing it would feel until it happened. In case you are left with any doubt, here's a text I received from a friend the next morning: "We were so happy to share your day with you guys thanks for having us!!!! Your wedding was very very special and tons of fun... PS: one of the best and I lost count of how many we've attended!!"

Let me just say one more time, if you're thinking of hiring Kezia- do it! You absolutely will not regret it.
