Weddings are my passion! Your wedding ceremony is the key that opens the door to your wedding day. It is the first event of your wedding day with your guests and is the heart of your day. You book vendors who specialize in weddings so why not book a minister who specializes in weddings, too? I will joyfully deliver the words of your beautiful ceremony--a collaboration of the 3 of us that reflects your beliefs, your love and commitment and your personalities. We warmly welcome your guests, pay tribute to your loved ones, tell the story of your love and commitment which flows into your vows and ring exchange, the pronouncement of marriage and happily present you to your guests! This feeling of closeness and celebration continues right on into your reception.

Pricing

Long gone are the days when the groom slipped $25 cash into the hand of the family church 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 education, expertise and experience of the officiant is what you are paying for. Remember, the wedding officiant is the only vendor legally required for the wedding!

Bells and Whistles: My fee ranges from $550 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 you decide 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 based on what you tell me you want, 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 North Raleigh you get the Sweet and Simple ceremony and the venue. What a deal--because I don't have to travel! Space for up to 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! You may bring a photographer. Wheelchair friendly--no steps. Fees range from $250 on weekdays to $350 on weekends.

About Kayelily

Kayelily has been officiating weddings since seminary ordination in 1997 and her services are highly recommended by wedding professionals and venues 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 bilingual 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

Every third Monday of the month (except for December, June, July and August) at Unity of the Triangle, 5570 Munford Road, Raleigh 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 skills and a simple conflict resolution technique, two essential skills necessary for a happy enduring marriage. FREE! Contact Kayelily at RevK@AWeddingMinister.com to register.

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. Read less

I'm so happy my Husband and I chose Reverend Kayelily Middleton to be our officiant for our wedding. My husband and I have a big wedding set for next year but decided we wanted to have a small ceremony with just us and our parents. It turned out the only time we could all be together was just 3 weeks away from the day we made our decision. Kayelily returned my call within a very short time and I was instantly drawn to her energy and personality. I knew right away she was the officiant I wanted for my wedding. My husband and I didn't have a place in mind for the ceremony but knew we wanted it outside and Kayelily's garden was the PERFECT place. I was even allowed to include my dog, which was a very important thing to me. Kayelily and her husband John were so warm, friendly and welcoming to us, our family and my dog. I truly believe there was no one else out there that could have done a better job. The ceremony Kayelily wrote for us was absolutely beautiful and really captured mine and my husbands beliefs and relationship. It was all "written in the stars" and worked out better than I could have imagined. Kayelilly was very attentive and super easy to work with and talk to. I only wish we could use her again for the wedding we are planning for next year! Thank you Kayelily and John. I still tell people how amazing you both were and will continue to.

Thank you so much, Elizabeth! Your wedding was a lot of fun to put together keeping what you wanted in mind. And what a sweet wedding it was for you and Jason and having both sets of parents and Daphne, your precious doggie, there made it all the sweeter. I am so glad you found me.

Reverend Kayelily was more than a pleasure to work with. She helped us build our ceremony and it turned out absolutely perfect. Kayelily's style of how she comes up with the personal stories is perfect. She will ask individual questions and surprise you the day of your wedding. Seth and I couldn't be happier with how our ceremony was presented. I would highly suggest the use of this reverend for any wedding. Kayelily was really open to our thoughts on religion and it is obvious to me she has a wonderful heart that is open to anyone's own way of thinking. Thank you Kayelily!

Thank you for your kind words, Sarah. You and Chad were a dream to work with despite not living locally. I loved learning your story and how much you love each other. The vendor team you put together worked together so well and your wedding was spectacular despite the wind and rain of Hurricane Matthew churning right outside! And now you can "Go West" to pursue your next adventure! Best of everything to you both.

Kayelily did an amazing job of telling our story at my wedding in October 2016. It was touching, funny and real. I loved that it was all about us versus some words read from a book. She personalized our ceremony by getting to know us as a couple. She also made sure we were both comfortable with the way she would tell our story. The guests absolutely loved her and said they had never seen anything like it before. I would use her services again and I would definitely recommend her to every bride that's looking for an officiant. Thank you Kayelily for making our ceremony special!! Thanks from The Jones'!

We couldn't have made it through our wedding ceremony without Kayelily. This was the second marriage for both of us and 5 teenagers and young adults involved. Kayelily helped guide us through having the most meaningful, tearful, joyous and memorable event of our lives. Kayelily spoke about us in a way that it felt like she had known us and our family forever. Our expectation were pretty high of how are ceremony would go, but never expected how personal and perfect Kayelily would have made it. Kayelily took her time, kept reminding us to take this moment in and embrace all the love. It will never be forgotten! I would recommend Kayelily Middleton if you want one of the best wedding ceremonies ever. If your nervous she calms you, if you cry she helps you with your tears and turns them into laughter. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. And, again I will say we couldn't have made it without you......

Can't say enough about how wonderful Rev. Kayelily is! When my fiancé and I met with her we felt very comfortable. She is so very calm and understanding. Our ceremony was very special. Rev. Kayelily provided us with some vows that she has used that she allows you to tweak to make them your own or you can even write your own vows. There is a reason that she is so popular and well known to the wedding community!

Reverend Kayelily Middleton officiated our wedding ceremony recently at the beautiful Umstead Hotel. She did a beautiful job and we couldn't have been any happier! She made us all laugh and cry. Our ceremony was personal and touching and really told our story as a couple. The best compliment we received was when a friend say that the whole wedding made everyone there feel as if they were falling in love all over again. Thank you Kayelily, you were simply wonderful!

Kayelily is the absolute best. The work she puts into making each ceremony unique and personal is incredible. I can't tell you how many of my wedding guests told me how beautiful our ceremony was, and that it was one of the best they have ever seen. Kayelily is also super organized, and makes sure that you know exactly what you are supposed to do, bring, and say for the rehearsal and ceremony. Other vendors also love her! She was actually the first person we booked for our wedding (after all, she's the one who makes it legal!), and so many of our vendors were excited to work with Kayelily again because they also know how great she is.

Thank you for your thoughtful words, Mary. You and Phil were a joy to work with and I am so happy you chose me to join you in marriage. The wedding ceremony is all about the couple, their love and commitment, their beliefs and personalities, in my opinion so that is what I strive to accomplish with each wedding 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!
