Weddings are my passion! Your wedding ceremony is the key that opens the door to your wedding day. You book vendors who specialize in weddings so why not book a minister who specializes in weddings, too? I will officiate your wedding with confidence and grace speaking the words of your beautiful ceremony that warmly welcome your guests, pay tribute to your loved ones as I guide you through your vows and ring exchange, the pronouncement of marriage and happily present you to your guests! This feeling of closeness and celebration flows right on into your reception.

Pricing

Long gone are the days when the groom slipped $25 cash into the hand of the minister after the wedding! The time spent on creating the ceremony, the travel time to and from the rehearsal and wedding, time at the wedding (2 hours) and the rehearsal (1 hour), completing the license, as well as the expertise and experience of the officiant is what you are paying for. Remember, the wedding minister/officiant is the only vendor legally required for the wedding!

Bells and Whistles: My fee ranges from $500 to $850 for a formal wedding with many attendants and guests depending on the distance I must travel to and from your wedding and rehearsal. Once I know the level of customization you want, where your wedding will be, and if you are having a rehearsal, I can determine my fee.

Sweet and Simple: For a small private elopement-style wedding with no preliminary consultation, no rehearsal, and a less personalized wedding ceremony, my fee ranges from $350 to $450 depending on the distance I must travel.

Kayelily's Wedding Garden : For small intimate weddings in my beautiful wedding garden in N. Raleigh you get the Sweet and Simple ceremony and the venue. What a deal--because I don't have to travel! Limited to no more than 20 guests. No reception or dressing facilities provided. Just arrive 10 minutes before your ceremony with your marriage license and we will do your wedding! No rehearsal. Okay to bring a photographer. Wheelchair friendly--no steps. Fees range from $250 on weekdays to $300 on weekends.

About Kayelily

Kayelily has been officiating weddings since seminary ordination in 1997 and her services are highly recommended by wedding professionals in the Triangle area. Kayelily would be honored to work with you to create your special ceremony and officiate your wedding. She books up quickly so email or call her ASAP to check her availability for your wedding date and time and schedule your free consultation. If you need an officiant who can speak both English and Spanish, she can refer you to a wonderful officiant.

Marriage Compatibility Inventory

Your wedding day is just one day in time and while every couple expects they will be together for the rest of their lives, even the most carefully planned wedding does not guarantee a lifetime of marital bliss. Therefore, creating the strongest foundation possible prior to marriage is a wise idea. Kayelily has an inventory that you can take on line that will see how well you fit together as a couple. You each separately complete the inventory on line (takes about 20 minutes) which generates a compatibility profile that is sent to Kayelily. Then you schedule one session with Kayelily to go over the results. It will show how your core values and personality traits fit together and identify areas that are strong and those that should be strengthened.

Marriage 101 Class

(Suspended for the summer!) Beginning again September 13, 2016 at Unity of the Triangle, 5570 Munford Road, Raleigh: Every second Tuesday of the month from 7 to 9 PM, engaged and newlywed couples are invited to come to Kayelily's Marriage 101 which is an interactive class about marriage and relationship skills. Kayelily teaches communication and conflict resolution, the two basic essential skills necessary for a happy enduring marriage.

Other Services

In addition to officiating weddings, Kayelily also performs renewal of vows ceremonies, baby blessing ceremonies or christening/baptism/naming ceremonies and celebration of life memorials. She has also done house blessing ceremonies and could also create meaningful rite of passage ceremonies if requested. She recently created a ceremony for a sixteen year old young man who changed his name and wanted to celebrate this rite of passage. He was into The Lord of the Rings, Hobbits, Knights of Old and so we incorporated all that into his celebration ceremony.

Kayelily is fantastic, and I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. We wanted a secular ceremony because my husband's family is Jewish and mine is not. Kayelily was incredibly accommodating and flexible and helped us craft the perfect ceremony that was non-religious and incredibly personal and meaningful. We met with Kayelily in advance of the wedding, and she read us a sample ceremony. It made me cry because it was so beautiful. Kayelily let us personalize our ceremony a great deal. We wrote a long passage about how we met that she included. We also each separately wrote and sent her a passage on why we love one another, which she kept private until the actual ceremony. She included a section honoring and thanking our parents that we know they loved. I cried throughout the ceremony, and my husband shed some tears as well. Our parents were definitely crying as were many others in attendance. The ceremony was touching, moving, and also appropriately light and humorous at a couple points. I think I must have surprised her with all my crying, but she rolled with it and made sure we were all in sync. Overall, it was the perfect ceremony we were hoping for that pleased everyone in attendance. On the logistics side, Kayelily was so helpful and flexible throughout the entire process. We initially wanted to have a private ceremony for about 10 people in the morning, and we ended up changing that to about 40 people in the evening, which Kayelily effortlessly accommodated. Kayelily comes across as a very sweet person, and her speaking voice is calm and soothing and has a rich Southern charm to it that added to the character of the experience (we are transplants to the area!). Overall I cannot say enough positive things about Kayelily. Thank you for making our day perfect!

Stefanie, you and Will were wonderful to work with to create your very personalized, romantic and joyful wedding ceremony. At your wedding ceremony we stood surrounded by your families and closest friends and I could feel the love coming from them to you. You truly had the wedding you envisioned and are an inspiration to other couples to step out of the box and do it your way!! I loved it! Thank you for this wonderful testimony!

Kayelily met with us quickly after we reached out to her. She was very warm and helpful. She helped us craft a meaningful ceremony and was really helpful the day of by bringing her little sound system and taking care of our license while we were busy with the photographer. She also recommended the restaurant we ultimately picked for our reception. (If she hadn't had another wedding right after ours, we'd have asked her to join us for the meal.) Very glad we picked her!

Thank you, Rachel! It was a pleasure working with you and Derek and coming up with the perfect ceremony for your garden wedding and managing to squeeze your sweet wedding in amongst your graduation festivities that weekend too. It worked out so perfectly and the weather was most cooperative! Your photographer also sent me the photo of our group taken via drone!

We are so happy to have found Kayelily to be our officiant! She worked with us over the course of a year to create a truly unique, personable and eloquent ceremony. She had plenty of ideas on how to make our ceremony special. My husband and I come from different religions and she had plenty of ideas on how to blend the two for us (and our families) to feel comfortable. She did not settle until we were happy with the script. It made us feel very confident going in to our wedding day. She even makes sure that her attire matches your color scheme which just proves how thoughtful she is. She is very experienced and friendly. We would definitely recommend her to any engaged couple! - Amanda and Mike, married 4/16/16

Kayelily is an absolute joy to work with. She gave us free reign for creating the ceremony content and guidance to make sure we had the best experience. She is so flexible with changes last minute. We did our rehearsal outside but ended up inside and no one would have ever known. She is extremely supportive and caring and genuinely works to create the ceremony the couple wants to experience. We attended pre-marital counseling and Kayelily provided great advice! Thank you Kayelily for making our ceremony such a once in a lifetime event! Terri and Melissa

Kayelily was better than we could have hoped for. She has the experience to know what needs to be done and the most effective way to do it. It was OUR perfect ceremony, but she helped make sure it happened the way we wanted it to with all our desired effects. Although we didn't know it at the time, she was the best most important decision we could have made.

Reverend Kayelily was wonderful to work with. She incorporated our ideas and refined them perfectly to provide the couple with the wedding they were dreaming of.
Due to weather, we had a last minute location change, but she wrangled the rowdy, excited group including children and got everyone focused. She then led the couple and family through a beautiful, memorable ceremony they will always cherish.
Thank you Reverend Kayelily, you're a blessing!

Reverend Middleton met with us for us a couple of months in advance of our wedding to go over what we were looking for personally in our wedding as well as make suggestions of vows once we assured her that we did not want to write our own. The day of the wedding she was prompt & personable, which was great because that entire day had been a whirlwind of us trying to get ready.

My husband and I were very thrilled with the ceremony Revered Kayelily performed. We had so many people tell us after the wedding that it was the best wedding service they had ever heard because it was fun and personal, and that it was "very us". Reverend Kayelily made the process smooth. She spends a lot of time with couples prior to the wedding working on the ceremony. Her professionalism was excellent, and she has processes and procedures in place to ensure that the ceremony runs smoothly and on time. I would recommend her to anyone.

Our plan was to go to the courthouse with 2 witnesses to get married, we realized the courthouse was closed for Veterans Day! I started to look up online to find someone who could officiate our wedding, after calling few people and leaving messages I started to get disappointed!! Finally, I called Kayelily and she answered right away with her warm & friendly voice. I explained our situation and asked if she was available on Wednesday to offeciate our wedding? She had already 2 wedding services but she was able to help, Kayelily offered me 2 different times to choose from and we were able to work things up over the weekend, we didn't have time to meet with her but she was very friendly and genuine made me feel very comfortable, I sent her an email to let her know more about me and my husband with our picture. Although it was a last minute ceremony, 4 days notice, but she was understanding, responsive, supportive & able to communicate very well with me and we were able to personalize our ceremony and share our story with our beloved ones. It turned out to be a very small ceremony with our family members ( about 18 people) we were very thrilled with her and the service she provided! She was funny and attentive to our family. We couldn't have been happier and thankful with the way everything turns out! Very simple, romantic and peaceful.
Kayelily, thank you SO much for helping us making our wedding day a VERY special & unforgettable day!
DO NOT HESITATE TO CALL HER!!

We selected Kayelily to be our officiant after a lot of consideration. We wanted to pick someone who could help us tailor the ceremony into our ceremony and not just a copy and paste item. The ceremony is one of the key parts of the wedding that can make or break a wedding. Luckily for my wife and I, Kayelily was everything we needed and more. She guided us through the entire ceremony process (we had absolutely no idea how things were supposed to run) and gave us lots of help/examples to put together our very own ceremony. She gave us a memorable and personable (like we had known each other for years) ceremony. Would absolutely recommend to others.

Julie and David, thank you for writing this review! I suspect David may have written it and Julie posted it because of the reference to "my wife and I." Your story was 14 years of adventure rolled into a 20 minute ceremony and a delight to tell your guests. I especially loved it when David's dad lifted "Binkie" (their little furbaby) up into the air so the guests could see her whenever I mentioned her! It was truly a fun wedding and reflection of the two of you. I know you are so happy!
