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 renewal of vows ceremonies, baby blessing ceremonies or 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.

Pricing:
All Kayelily's weddings are customized and the pricing depends on 1) the degree of customization and 2) distance traveled to your venue. For quick elopement weddings in Kayelily's wedding garden the price ranges from $250 to $300. For Kayelily to go on site and perform an elopement style ceremony $350 to $450. For the large formal weddings with the ultimate customization including your story and special paragraphs about your love for each other, the range is $500 to $800. To add a rehearsal the fee is $100. Kayelily is flexible and sometimes offers discounts on a wedding by wedding basis. Read less

Wedding:

5.0/5.0
My husband and I had been engaged for over 6 years!! We had tried to plan our wedding several times but life just kept getting in the way. One weekend I just decided to Google elopement style ceremonies in Raleigh, NC and stumbled across Kayelily's website. I instantly feel in love with her Wedding Garden and her reasonable fee. Being the avid internet researcher that I am, I had to look at more officiant websites before I allowed myself to make a decision but I did not find anyone else that matched what I was looking for. At this point, we had decided that we should try to get married the weekend of his daughter's (my stepdaughter) Spring Break, which was a week and a half away!! I just assumed that since it was April and the beginning of "wedding season" she would be booked but I emailed her anyway. I was so pleasantly surprised when she responded with multiple openings in the timeframe that I gave her. Kayelily met with us and planned a very personalized ceremony in literally a week and a half!! She even included a special segment for our daughter to finally cement our family together. I could not have been happier with the way everything turned out. April 11th was a beautiful spring day and we will forever remember how special it was for us. We greatly appreciate Kayelily's willingness to take what began to feel like a job and turn it into the intimate wedding that we always wanted. I would recommend her to any of the Raleigh brides needing an officiant, whether it be for a small ceremony in her own beautiful Wedding Garden or a grand affair at the Umstead Hotel. Rev. Kayelily is absolutely the best option out there in the Raleigh area!!!

Kayelily did a great job as our Officiant! She kept everything organized and also provides steps to take on changing your name, etc. I felt like she gave us the flexibility to design a meaningful ceremony together, and many people commented on how touching it was. I would definitely recommend Kayelily!

Kayelily was fantastic. She worked with us to create a very intimate and beautiful ceremonies that melded our two families into one. Everyone at the wedding kept coming up at telling me what a beautiful ceremony we had.

My husband and I used Kayelily as our officiant after viewing her website and a recommendation from our photographer. We met with her once prior to the ceremony to discuss what we wanted our vows to be like. She seemed to really grasp the tone of what we wanted the ceremony to be like and was open to our ideas and wishes. We wanted something that was more spiritual than religious, which we captured perfectly (however, she would have been willing to go in whatever direction we asked her to!) The day of the wedding she showed up early, met the family and prepared for the ceremony. The ceremony itself was absolutely perfect. Kayelily has such a calm, peaceful presence which was exactly what we needed as emotional as we were! I cried throughout the ceremony and she provided me with a handkerchief which I will treasure as a keepsake. After the wedding, she wrote up a beautiful blog post about our ceremony which was so touching to read. I would strongly recommend Kayelily for any ceremony that you are considering her for, you won't regret it!

I can't agree more with the hundreds of other reviews on Kayelily. She is worth every penny. From the first consultation with her to the dozens of e-mails to personalize our ceremony, she was so easy to work with. Having done so many ceremonies, Kayelily has the process down pat and makes the most important part of our wedding day, the ceremony, a relatively simple process to personalize. We got compliments from almost every single guest about how wonderful our ceremony was - that they cried, laughed and though it was so fitting for us. Thank you Kayelily for making our wedding ceremony so perfect!

Kayelily was amazing to work with. She is kind, caring, professional and extremely well versed. She has worked with several of our vendors in the past and her expertise was very appreciated as we did not hire a professional wedding coordinator for our big day. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect and captured everything we could have wanted to as a couple and for our loved ones.

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.

I can truly say that everyone in attendance expressed the fact that the melding of this Jewish and Christian service had a positive impact on everybody in attendance. Kayelily is very amenable to the wishes of the bride and groom and preforms an excellent service.

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!
