Premium, personalized wedding ceremonies for couples who are planning their future as well as their wedding in the Northwestern corner of lower Michigan.

Your big day deserves the kind of care and attention that a professional wedding officiant can give you. You want to feel you are in the competent hands of someone who cares about you, has your best interests in mind and understands the meaning of the vows you have chosen to share. We know you are about to make the most important commitment of your life.

Grace's Story

Grace was a busy teacher about to marry a professional hockey player. She was managing many of the wedding details without his help. After she looked over the materials I emailed her, she was relieved. Even though Bill was out of town, our 3-way Skype meeting went smoothly. And so did their wedding. They, and their guests were thrilled.

After the wedding ceremony was over, Grace’s father took me aside. “This my 3rd daughter and the 3rd wedding,” he said. “The other two ceremonies were nice. And I have been to a lot of weddings in my day. But yours was by far the best ceremony I have ever heard. I can’t thank you enough.”

Later I heard from Grace that her father AND her sister both changed their speeches because her ceremony had touched them so deeply.

As your officiant, you will get the support, encouragement and ease you deserve. Your northern Michigan wedding will flow and inspire. You can be confident you will benefit from my 25+ years of developing easy, unique processes. Your To Do list will be short. Your ceremony will be personalized to suit you perfectly. You will adore the heart-felt way your ceremony is delivered.

I would love to schedule a free consultation to discuss how I might be able to help with creating a meaningful, extraordinary wedding ceremony for you.

Please NOTE

I live in Traverse City in the tip of the Mitt. My service areas include Grand Traverse County, Cadillac, Frankfort, all of Leelanau Peninsula (Northport, Glen Arbor, Suttons Bay), Charlevoix, Kalkaska, Harbor Springs, and Petoskey.

Reverend Crystal is so nice! She is very experienced, professional, and easy to talk to. I especially love how she donates part of her fee to an animal rescue. She's also quick to respond to your questions, knowledgeable, non-judgemental, and she offers quite a bit of variety so you can really make your wedding ceremony just how you want it! She did the perfect ceremony for us. You'll be in good hands if you choose her!

We would like to thank Rev Crystal Yarlott from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible work she did on our wedding day! Her incredibly kind personality, loving energy, and connection to Source were unmatched. Rev Crystal created a special and customized ceremony that was completely unique to Ryan and I. We received an enormous amount of compliments from our guests for her sweet and caring message and presentation of love. We especially appreciate her willingness to meet with us beforehand and help facilitate the rehearsal. It was such a gift to have her beforehand and it made the actual ceremony much less intimidating! We also appreciate her partnership with the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, which made the process much easier as we were married at that location.

We are so thankful for everything she did behind the scenes that made a difference for us! Her customized stories and support for our love and marriage really made an impact. The pre-marriage prep was necessary, confirming, and a joy to explore with Rev Crystal. Check out her YouTube channel for more yummy content too @clyar429 ! We love her!!

Our guests were deeply impacted by our ceremony, not only because of our open and honest display of love as a couple, but because of the truths that Reverend Crystal spoke of love as it applies to every living soul. In a very simple and beautiful way, she allowed our family and friends to look at the person next to them with greater appreciation, understanding and depth. With Reverend Crystal at the helm, we were able to navigate this new journey a little easier, a little more clearly - with family and friends by our side in celebration. And this is just one love story out of many that she has blessed. I began to think that Reverend Crystal had a special gift for bringing the magic of our love story to life, but I know instead that she is that magic.

If there is any one thing you hope to get perfectly right in this process, be sure to have Reverend Crystal in your life. - - Laura Rowland & Jayson Doty
