No cookie-cutter weddings!
Your wedding ceremony should be as special and unique as your relationship. Each custom-created ceremony reflects your personal values, beliefs, and personalities. In collaboration with you, I create ceremonies affirming your love, while acknowledging, honoring, and respecting different religions (or none), cultures, customs, and traditions as you wish. Specializing in interfaith, non-religious, and same sex ceremonies, I also create contemporary and relevant interpretations for traditional rituals. Living in the greater Chicagoland area, I am willing to travel within the Midwest. Read less

Thank you for making Saturday such a special and memorable day for us and our families and friends. The title "celebrant" is apt, because the ceremony that you created really did feel like a celebration. Our guests have had nothing but favorable responses to the ceremony, and one of our guests even said she thought the ceremony was the best she'd ever seen. We were moved by the way you shaped the details of our relationship into a compelling story, highlighted the importance of our family and friends, found the perfect mixture of serious and funny, and created a seamless flow with wonderful transitions. Truly an art form. And when we stood there in the pressure cooker in front of everyone, getting all emotional, it was a comfort to have you there with us. Thank you, Michele!

Michele was amazing. She was very organized, professional, and such a great person to work with. You can really tell she loves her job. We had an interfaith, multicultural wedding, and she was very knowledgeable about our traditions and customs, more so than we were honestly! She made sure that our ceremony included everything we wanted and reassured us through the process.

Michele was wonderful to work with and exceeding our expectations for a personalized ceremony. She was able to capture and convey the spirit of our relationship within the service. She was also so relaxed and comfortable that we in turn felt relaxed and comfortable. If you are looking for a unique, personalized ceremony, go with Michele!

Michele Rose was amazing! From day one we knew she was the one for us. Michele actually took the time to get to know us and made us feel special. She also stood her ground when it came to dealing with my parents, who wanted it THEIR way, but Michele made sure it was done OUR way since it was OUR wedding! Everything in the ceremony that she wrote was meaningful and will make for many memories to remember! Michele incorporated old traditions, new traditions, and unique moments that really touched everyone that was able to partake. Our night wouldn't have been as perfect as it was without Michele. Thank you for being part of our magical day!!

Three days before the wedding our officiant had to cancel due to being in the hospital. Talk about a panic moment! She then referred us to Michele. The good Lord must have been looking down on us that day; Michele is amazing. The ceremony was beautiful. Truly it was if she had known us for years instead of three days! We couldn't have been more pleased.

My fiancé and I found Michele Rose listed on a number of wedding websites. After reading her bio, we felt she might be a good fit for us based on her website. It was important to us to have an officiant who performed all types of ceremonies, especially same sex, as we feel strongly about this topic. I called Michele Rose and we set up a time to meet at a local Panera. We all sat down and chatted for a bit and then we discussed what we were looking for in an officiant. She asked us some questions about our background and showed us a portfolio of weddings she had performed. She also went over her ceremony creation process and we were very impressed. She asked us how she might best get to know us and I suggested she may want to talk with our parents. This idea was very well received and ended up adding a very special touch to our ceremony. Needless to say, we decided to move forward and provided a deposit by check and signed the contract with her prior to leaving. As our wedding drew closer we received an extensive questionnaire from her along with instructions to fill out as much or as little as we were comfortable with. It was a bit like homework, but it was completely worth it. After we completed our questionnaires, our parents were contacted and then we received the first draft of our ceremony. After a few rounds of edits we had everything ready for the big day. In the days leading up to the wedding I sent our DJ and day of coordinator a copy of the ceremony and on our special day things went perfectly. Our friends and family raved about how personalized and "us" the ceremony was. Many asked if Michele Rose knew us outside of being our officiant (she did not). A few of our guests mentioned it was the only ceremony where they both laughed and cried. Overall, the day was perfect, beyond our expectations and we couldn't be more grateful for the personalized, wonderful and memorable ceremony provided by Michele Rose.

We were very lucky to meet Ms. Michele Rose. From our first encounter Michele was upbeat, full of suggestions, responsive and easy to reach. One of the most impressive characteristics of Michele Rose's planning was her dedication learn about us, including multiple meetings and having each of us, independently, complete a survey about our lives. Michele crafted a fantastic service, but then allowed us to fully edit the entire ceremony. On the day of the event, Michele was on site early, and fully prepared. Her ceremony was personal, moving and will be remembered as a highlight of our lives. We highly recommend Michele Rose and Rose Wedding Ceremonies.
