Your Ceremony:

Weddings are Kayelily's passion and have been for the past 16 years! You book vendors who specialize in weddings so why not book a minister who specializes in weddings, too. Together with Kayelily you will co-create the most romantic wedding ceremony--one you will love hearing on your wedding day and your guests will be so touched by! Kayelily 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, and tell the story of your love as she guides you through your vows and ring exchange, the pronouncement of marriage and happily presents you to your guests as husband and wife! Your ceremony will be an original-- romantic, inclusive, interesting and fun. Your friends and family love to hear the story of your love, laughing and crying at all the right places. This feeling of closeness and celebration flows right on into your reception.
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 call or email her ASAP to check her availability for your wedding date and time and schedule your free consultation. If need of an officiant who can speak both English and Spanish, she can refer you to a wonderful officiant.

Marriage Optimization:

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. Data shows that couples who participate in marriage preparation classes have a much higher percentage of creating a satisfying and enduring marriage. If you are interested in marriage preparation classes, Kayelily offers (but does not require) a series of three Marriage Optimization sessions following your completion of an online inventory to assess your relationship and compatibility in more than 20 areas vital to a good marriage. She teaches communication and conflict resolution skills, financial management and so much more in her educational and fun interactive sessions with you. Couples who have done Kayelily's Marriage Optimization find that they learn a lot about each other they never knew, acquire relationship skills and consider it a very wise investment in their future together.

Other Services:

In addition to officiating weddings, Kayelily also performs commitment ceremonies, renewal of vows ceremonies, baby blessing/christening/baptism/naming ceremonies and 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

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Baha'i Faith, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Anglican, Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Presbyterian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
I perform weddings wherever the couple want--even did one in a lake once! I officiate weddings in gardens, hotels, homes, restaurants, my wedding garden, resorts, churches and chapels, historic estates, B&Bs, plantations, in the woods, public parks,and in my wedding garden in N. Raleigh.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
For formal weddings with attendants, I typically wear a long flowing dress and prayer stole that matches or blends with the bridesmaids' dresses. If a couple requests I wear a certain color, I try to oblige.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
My couples are encouraged to create their own ceremony from my large collection of ceremony material and are free to modify words and import material from other sources such as books and the internet to make the ceremony uniquely "theirs." I will write their love story based on answers they give me to questions I ask them. Then they edit it to their liking.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
I encourage my couples to make their ceremony uniquely theirs which includes writing their own vows. I send them examples to get them started. They can even write secret vows to be heard for the first time on their wedding day! Or they might find the perfect words in my collection of words for vows and rings.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
Couples are free to import readings wherever they find them. I have a compilation of readings that I email them that keeps on growing! Every time I see a new reading, I add it to my collection. There is scripture plus poems, Native American stories, quotes from children's books, funny poems, romantic poems, etc. You name it--it is probably in my collection which is presently 82 pages.
How long are your ceremonies?
I think the ideal length of a ceremony is 20 minutes. Any ceremony less than A ceremony less than 15 minutes is skimpy and leaves the guests wondering if they really witnessed a wedding! A ceremony more than 25 minutes seems to lose the attention of the guests. 20 minutes is ideal and what we shoot for.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No, but I do highly recommend it. My Marriage Optimization program consists of a comprehensive inventory taken on line, then we meet for 3 sessions to go over the relationship profile that is generated by their answers. It is very comprehensive and covers over 20 different areas which are necessary for the relationship to be happy and satisfying. Most couples spend thousands of dollars on just their wedding day and very little if anything preparing for their marriage. The Marriage Optimization program is a very wise investment in their future.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes. If there is more than one attendant each in their wedding, we will need a rehearsal to make sure everyone knows how to stand, where to stand, how to enter, what to do, how to exit, etc. A rehearsal is recommended to make sure the wedding ceremony flows smoothly and does not look shabby or slipshod.
Do you supply a sound system?
Yes, I have a two battery powered sound systems (one is a backup). If there is a DJ providing ceremony music, I bring my own personal ear microphone to plug into his system or use one he/she provides.

Kayelily was so helpful in the ceremony creation process. She listened to our suggestions and gave us feedback on them and helped fine tune things to flow better. She has this amazing voice that is soothing and comforting. We received a compliment on her from almost every guest we spoke to! She does a fantastic job at turning your thoughts into a beautiful story and memorable keepsake for many many years to come. I would recommend her to every bride to be I know!

Thank you, Cassidy! Yours and Chandler's wedding was unique in that you figured out a way that allowed your parents to express their religious views within a non-religious ceremony which was very important to them! Thank you for that! I am sure that other couples I officiate for with the same difference in beliefs will follow your example!

My fiance and I were originally planning to elope in Ashevillle NC at a bed and breakfast that coordinated everything -- the most important part being the wedding officiant. We were putting together a quick wedding and finding a minister to marry you is not always so easy if they do not know you already or if you are unable to complete pre-marital counseling. [Which we still want to do and hope to return to Kayelily for her counseling package because we do want to invest in that part of our relationship and we think very highly of Kayelily and her work]. Anyway, I was so distraught about not having any options for a minister and the thought of having a courthouse wedding made me so sad. I stumbled across Kayelilly's website and blog and quickly sent her an inquiry about her availability for December (this was just a week before Thanksgiving!) She promptly replied and had such a lovely presence in our emails that I knew I had found the perfect minister to be a part of our special day - I knew it would would be more than a transaction and that it would feel sincere and would be memorable. Within days we had picked out a date and were all set; I couldn't believe it! Reverend Kayelily is so talented with words - her ceremony was the prettiest one I have ever read, heard, and been a part of. I have probably been to more than a dozen weddings and have never heard vows or blessings as beautiful as hers. I could not have dreamed of a better minister or person for this occasion and I am tickled that she is able to be a part of so many other people's lives in the same way.

George, what a delight you and Phyllis are and of course, Romey, your adorable chihuahua who "wrote" you such a funny and sweet poem that your friend read on his behalf during the ceremony. I love telling people about that and get a good laugh myself every time! I am so happy that you and Phyllis are together!

Kayelily gave the best wedding ceremony I've ever heard! Granted it was for my wedding, but I can assure you she will do the same for your wedding. Kayelily made a specific ceremony that honored and shared our love story to our guests. She crafted this amazing service that met our exact needs from religion, to our family, to the love my husband and I share, to the pure joy of the wedding day. She knew exactly what to do, say, organize, etc. Even her outfit for the wedding was coordinated with my colors. Kayelily also had this soft, loving, kind way of delivering the ceremony where you felt she has been your friend your entire life. As if she has known your story and now sharing it with the world. Every aspect was special and I couldn't have asked for a better ceremony.

Kayelily is amazing! She was truly the perfect choice for our officiant. She met with us briefly a few weeks before our day to get to know us & explain how she does things, from that short meeting she was able to write a distinct ceremony that felt like we had known her for years. She was happy to incorporate some specific personal things we wanted added into our vows and blessing to make the words she and we spoke that day utterly us. Her kind, gentle but completely professional demeanor put us at ease and made our wedding everything we could have imagined. I recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking for guidance in writing and a beautiful experience of exchanging your wedding vows. She is clearly at the top of her field.

Kayelily was amazing throughout the whole process. She is the only officiant we met with - which I usually wouldn't recommend for wedding vendors! - but we were just instantly comfortable with her and knew she would meet our needs perfectly. She helped us to create a ceremony unique to us, without making it feel like more work. She was incredibly easy to work with to create our perfect ceremony, including everything we wanted without becoming long winded. We've had nothing but compliments on our ceremony and we really couldn't be happier.

Kayelily was awesome! We first approached her about premarital counseling, which helped our already strong relationship become a perfect foundation for married life. After the counseling, we decided Kayelily should be the one to marry us. The process was easy, and all the different options made our ceremony unique, heartfelt, and completely personal. Every guest was in tears and told me individually that it was the Best Ceremony Ever. Thanks to Kayelily, our wedding will be much more memorable.

Christina, many thanks for your review. It was my delight to work with a couple who are so well matched and so dedicated to each other and the success of their marriage. I have no doubt yours and Erik's marriage will endure and be quite fulfilling, peaceful and filled with happiness. I loved how your guests (and you!) were laughing and crying at just the right moments (and more) during your ceremony as they heard the story of your love and what you cherish about each other! It was a joy!

Even late at night! Our ceremony was great. It felt as though she had known us for years and she kept up a great, positive energy throughout. She was also helpful on the business side as far as getting the marriage license done correctly and what not. Very kind and a great minister!
