Crystal was very professional and easy to work with. She allowed us to have the type of ceremony we wanted to have. We wanted something more modern than traditional, more spiritual than religious, and she had no problem incorporating the things we wanted and leaving out the things we did not want. She always responded promptly to emails. I like that a portion of our fee is donated to the Humane Society.

Reverend Crystal was outstanding. She performed a lovely ceremony for us. Crystal was efficient is getting all the paperwork to us and also took care of filing our marriage license with the state of Michigan. We never met Crystal until the day of our wedding. We talked over the phone and gave her our background and with that she put together a very meaningful ceremony. We would 100% recommend her services!

Crystal was great! She was very helpful before the ceremony and without her the ceremony wouldn't have been as beautiful.

I would recommend Crystal to anyone looking for a wedding officiant. She did an awesome job tailoring our ceremony to us. We had many compliments from guests on how the ceremony was put together, and what a great job she did. She was quick to respond to any questions we had, and was great to work with!

We absolutely loved having Crystal perform our wedding ceremony. She was very flexible -- not only willing but excited to welcome our dog (Charlie) as the ring bearer! She provided us with many sample ceremonies, and encouraged us to choose/create something special that felt completely appropriate to our love/life/beliefs. We couldn't have possibly asked for a more personal wedding experience! Crystal made it easy and was a total joy to work with-- and to get to know! We actually live in the mountains of New Mexico, but got married in Charlevoix, Michigan (where most of Les's large family still lives). The wedding was held on the old family farm where Les was raised, which his brother has now turned into a very nice event space. Crystal performed the ceremony outside, in the grass, under a charming/rustic grapevine arch decorated with hundreds of tiny flowers -- and then we had the reception in the barn -- where Crystal also performed a Unity Candle Ceremony for us prior to the cake cutting. There were some challenges to planning such a long-distance wedding... but working with Crystal was extremely easy (for instance, we Skyped our interview with her, and exchanged several emails -- we never actually met her in person until the day before the wedding). Based on our experience, I strongly recommend Crystal -- she is a lovely person!
