Hello, I am Victoria O Milne, the NORTHEAST'S ONLY FULL-SERVICE CUSTOM WEDDING MINISTER/CHAPLAIN. Each wedding ceremony I provide is completely written specifically for each couple.

My couples never have to research on their own or on-line for readings or elements that everyone else will see....I do it all from planning, to wedding day detailing, to creating personalized vows just for them. My couples love finding their special romantic ONE-OF-A-KIND WEDDING VOWs left in their honeymoon suite to end their perfect day!

Each ceremony is 100% written for each couple to reflect their love, passion, family, faith, traditions and more.

I create and provide meaningful READINGS, UNIQUE UNITY ELEMENTS, PERSONALIZED VOWS which can't be found anywhere else.

My services are DISTINCT and UNIQUE and my satisfied couples love to offer references and wedding wisdom. I am professionally well known in the community for my work as a chaplain and Master's level counselor. My services include INTERFAITH/SPIRITUAL services, CUSTOM LIFE CELEBRATIONS and CATHOLIC CHAPLAIN services. Read less

Wow - we could not have been more thrilled with the completely customized and absolutely perfect wedding ceremony Victoria created for our New Years Day wedding in Lake Placid. From the very first phone conversation I had with Victoria, I just knew she was the right choice. I could instantly tell that she takes her job to heart and truly puts her all into crafting beautiful, meaningful, personal ceremonies. We enjoyed every part of the planning process with Victoria. Our guests were touched and inspired by the ceremony and it added so much to a day we will never forget. I would not change a thing. Thank you Victoria!

Elizabeth, to be in your presence, as you and Cory took your vows of marriage, brought such a breath of exuberance into my New Year. I will carry the spirit of your great love story with me into 2016 as I send you both blessings - for not only a NEW YEAR but a NEW LIFE of magnificence.

Victoria is a wonderful human being! The passion she has for creating your perfect ceremony is obvious from minute one. Working with Victoria was easy and enjoyable. You won't believe how closely she listens and finds reflections of your relationship until you see it with your own eyes and feel it with your own heart. My husband and I were looking forward to hearing our vows with so much excitement on our wedding day. You will feel a priority to Victoria throughout the planning process and you'll be reassured you are on your wedding day (wedding weekend!) Victoria gave us a gift that we will always hold sacred - our perfect wedding ceremony custom made just for us. One of our guests assumed she must be related to my husband because she seemed to know us so well (and because of their shared red hair!). We couldn't be more pleased with the service - the love - we received from Victoria, and we know you will be too! Matt & Meredith, Albany, NY

Meredith and Matt:
Each of you brings forth a bright light into the world because as individuals - you are truly amazing people. Both personally and professionally, you make the world a better place! When you add the two of you together, it is like an explosion of positive goodness...an amazing single ray. Your love story has inspired me in many ways. I was honored to be a part of it and create the ceremony around it. I know the world will be much better for having you together, than it could have ever been had you not found each other!

Our ceremony had so many special touches provided by Victoria. She customized it to reflect our love story. Our guests enjoyed our wedding due to the enthusiasm and love that she reflected in the ceremony. Everything was perfect! Victoria is very easy to work with and my husband and I consider her a friend. We met with her a few times to discuss details and we really enjoyed talking with her and listening to some ideas that she had. She gave us a lot of insight on some more unique ways to express ourselves through our ceremony. I am so glad she married us! She's very professional, so friendly and you can tell that she enjoys her work and making sure that everything was perfect for us. We would very highly recommend her to any couple that is getting married.

You did an amazing job Victoria!! Thank you!!!

I think I can define Victoria as an angel! She is one of the most adorable person I've ever met. She is such passionate by her job that every time we spoke over the phone I felt more in love for my husband. She is amazing and really loves what she does. Since she was not available the day of our wedding, she worked with us during all the planning process, but on the big day we had Rev. Chuck who was also great and did an impeccable job! I recommend Victoria (and her team) and you actually should stop shopping around right now and book with her NOW! :)

Karina, you and your groom, Joseph, have an amazing love story that fueled my passion and inspired me to create the ceremony that just had to be fitting for a love so beautiful. Your two hearts, that were brought together by destiny and opened so magnificently to each other, honored Rev. Chuck and I as we were part of your day and we look forward to your blessed future. Thank you for your kind words. Sending you both love. Victoria

Victoria went above and beyond to make our wedding day special and help the planning process go smoothly. Throughout the year we spent planning, Victoria met with us as much as we needed and was always available for any questions we had. On our wedding day it felt like a close friend was marrying us because of the relationship she had built. She had became such a part of the process and such a support that we have kept in contact even after our wedding and consider her to be a friend. We definitely plan to have her do baby blessings for us when the time comes! Both my husband and I were so happy that we had Victoria officiate but we weren't the only one's who noticed just how great she is, when we were going around to tables at our reception we kept hearing from our guests about how it was "the best ceremony" they had been to and "it really showed who we were as a couple". It is now a few months after and are still getting comments about how personal, special and unique of a ceremony it was! We can't thank Victoria enough and all we can say is that this written review doesn't even do justice to just how highly we think of her and the amazing job she does!

We are so happy we chose Victoria to perform our wedding ceremony. She spent a considerable amount of time learning about us as a a couple, which allowed her to deliver a beautiful and entertaining, personalized ceremony. She also encompassed important traditions that complemented both of our heritages. We along with our guests raved about the ceremony, it was absolutely perfect! ~Krista & Marcus

If you are having a wedding in the upstate NY/Adirondack area, Victoria is a must. From the very beginning, through our wedding day and after she's not only been there for us as an officiant, but provided us with support and guidance as two people planning to spend their lives together.

We were looking for a non-traditional ceremony but one that still incorporated some important Catholic traditions that meant a lot to our families, with an outdoor Adirondack flair. And believe it or not she was able to do it!

Victoria was involved from the very beginning. One of the most rewarding aspects of the entire process that we did not expect was the initial stages where Victoria got to know us individually as well as a couple. She "interviewed" us, if you will, on what we wanted in a marriage and a partner. Then, she had us set up a date night where we shared our answers to the questions with each other. It allowed us to begin our marriage openly and honestly, with a shared vision on how we were planning on living our lives after we were married.

She then asked us to write each other love letters and not to share them with each other. From these love letters, she constructed our vows. Saying the words we wrote to express our love for each other was so special and it took the pressure off of having to write and read our own vows. And after a long, crazy, wonderful wedding day we returned to our rooms to find our love letters on our pillows, scattered rose petals on our bed, and a bottle of wine with glasses on the night table.

We are so blessed to have found Victoria. She is truly a genuine person. We miss her as part of our daily lives but she still checks in frequently! We didn't realize we were getting someone who is so invested in her couple's happiness and dedicated to supporting us not just during our wedding day but really helping us prepare for the rest of our lives together. For that, we are truly grateful.

My husband and I didn't want an overly sappy or religious wedding. We wanted something heartfelt and personal that really was about us as a couple. We were going to ask a friend to perform the ceremony, but it seemed like a lot to ask and we wanted it done right. I read a lot of reviews from couples who worked with Victoria and they had nothing but wonderful things to say about her. As soon as we talked on the phone the first time, I felt an instant connection to her. She not only made me feel at ease about the whole process, but she didn't try to sell me on using her or make anything cheesy. Speaking to her felt so natural and easy, so it was easy to open up to her about our story. She constantly was checking in with us or giving us advice about any questions we had. She would find a reading and send it our way just because she thought of us. She was so amazing and became like a family member. When it came to our wedding day, she delivered everything she promised and more. Using our conversations and all the stories we told her about us, she created the most beautiful, personal and heartfelt ceremony. It exceeded my wildest dreams and although the ceremony is technically the most important part of the wedding, it often is generic and boring and no one really listens. All people usually are thinking about is when they can eat! Not the case at our wedding. The whole thing was amazing! It was funny and loving all at the right moments and the vows she helped my nervous husband write, took my breath away. Even the most macho guests at my wedding came up to me afterward and said how special our ceremony was and how much he enjoyed it! I can never thank Victoria enough for making such an important part of our lives so magical and special, but I hope this review is a start. I'm so happy she came into our lives.

Tina: You will always hold special place in my heart. Giving you a ceremony that exceeded your dreams and making the journey to the day fun and stress-free was my highest priority. I am so glad I could give you that. Thank you, too, for giving me the "best" seat in the house for watching you and Chris as you said your vows. It was my privilege to be able to help take what was in your hearts and put it into words for all to witness. PS: Can't wait to do your Baby Blessing someday!

We had such a great experience working to construct the perfect personalized wedding ceremony with Reverend Victoria! Given our diverse family backgrounds and personal beliefs and values, we were looking for something pretty specific for our special day, and Victoria hit it out of the park. We had a perfect day with a personalized, meaningful and fun ceremony that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Our guests were blown away as well! Working up to the big day, Victoria was very flexible, responsive, and great to work with. She really took quality time to get to know us and our story, so we felt as if we had a close friend performing our ceremony. We were planning the wedding thousands of miles away from the event site, and Victoria helped us manage that effectively and pull together a truly special event. We would recommend Victoria to anyone looking for a personalized, unique, and incredible celebration. Thank you!

Krista and Kyle were such a fun couple to work with. I was happy that I have a good planning process in place for long-distance couples: meeting face to face on-line, talking on the phone and e-mail that allowed me to create their special ceremony. I love to accommodate the complex schedules of my couples. One of our best meetings was at the airport. Krista and Kyle were surprised by my offer to meet them at the airport to plan before boarding their flight home after a busy weekend in town. Anything I can do to make the journey awesome, is what I love to do especially when the couple is as wonderful as Kyle and Krista!
