I am an experienced, affordable, welcoming and affirming, ordained, non denominational minister. After an initial meeting, if we are ’a fit’, I listen to your story [we all have one] and to your vision of your day and work with you to craft the ceremony that you both want, one that will reflect your uniqueness as a couple.

I am a member of the American Association Of Wedding Officiants, always have a back up minister available and am more than happy to supply sample ceremonies and checkable references. Read less

No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes, I believe that couples should marry wherever is meaningful to them.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Absolutely. All couples are unique and their ceremony should reflect that.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
I encourage all couples to think about writing their own vows, if they don't feel that they want to then I customise some that I already have on file [and I have lots!]
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have suggestions for readings from the Dalai Llama to Louis De Berniere but am always happy to learn of more.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No, that is for the individual couple to decide on and to arrange.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
I am if my schedule does not conflict. Often it isn't neccessary for me to attend, someone can stand in for me as I never go through the vows etc at the rehearsal..

Carolyn was great to work with. After meeting her I fell in love with her accent and had to have her. She gave us a lot of good advice for our ceremony and also helped us write our vows. I'm glad we chose her to be apart of our day.

Carolyn did an amazing job on our wedding ceremony. It was personal, had just the right amount of humor and was very 'us.' It was a bit of a challenge to find an officiant who was willing to personalize the ceremony without going overboard with the hippy dippy super spiritual stuff.

Carolyn gave us a survey to fill out and from there gave us several options that we pieced together to create the perfect ceremony. She asked the right questions and really was able to pull out our personalities. She was fun to work with too. She's really sharp, funny and personable.

She's also incredibly well-priced for the amount of effort and care that she puts into crafting her ceremonies.

We found Carolyn through the preferred vendor list from our venue, and I'm so glad that we called her. She is witty, organized, and she's a great writer. All of our guests were raving about her after the ceremony, and they all commented on how personalized the ceremony was. Her calm demeanor and great sense of humor were exactly what I needed on my wedding day, not to mention the fact that she was the most affordable officiant we found in the Bay Area. We couldn't have been happier with our choice to use Carolyn as our officiant.

Carolyn was a fantastic officiant! We really couldn't have asked for more for our ceremony. She provided us with 3 custom ceremonies which we could review and edit for our ceremony. Carolyn also had several types of ceremonies to add into the main wedding ceremony. My husband and I chose to have a chocolate ceremony (who doesn't want to eat chocolate on their wedding day??). All in all the ceremony and services which Carolyn provided was exactly what we wanted and tailored for us.

Carolyn was flexible, professional, and personable which was great. Both my husband and I found her to be just a delight to work with. We had several guests approach us during the reception and after to tell us how great our officiant was. She added humor into the ceremony as well which was fantastic and had everyone laughing.

I would recommend Carolyn Selic to anyone and everyone who is getting married. She really made our ceremony special and was easy to work with.

Carolyn was the officiant at our wedding this past Friday, and we couldn't be happier with her service. Prior to the wedding, Carolyn met with us to discuss what we liked for our ceremony and put together the perfect ceremony schedule for us. She was also extremely organized and responsive to emails. Best of all, she has a great sense of humor and we were instantly comfortable with her. We highly recommend Carolyn of Mixed Blessings to anyone!!

If you are looking for someone who has great sense of humor and personality, Carolyn should be your officiant. She is also a brilliant writer. She wrote our vows and a poem for my husband's son to read during the ceremony called "What is a family?" The ceremony was a great mixture of happy tears, laughters, and joy. It was a beautiful and personal ceremony that was us.
