Wedding Officiant in 07508

You've said, "I will!"  Now, how will you say, "I do"?  

With all the style, humor and personality that makes you, well, you!

"Congratulations"  is often the first word that follows, "We’re getting married!" Usually, the next ones are, "Tell us about the ceremony!"  Panic follows; you're certainly not boring and predictable; how do you make sure your wedding ceremony won't be that way? The ceremony may seem like the least fun  piece of the puzzle. Of course, you want  a ceremony that will mark your important commitment, but a traditional church setting may not be right  for you. You need an officiant who can help you create a ceremony that is spiritual and inspiring, without language or symbolism that restrictive or cliche.

And that is exactly what we can do together!  As a Civil Celebrant, I've been uniquely trained to blend tradition, innovation, and ritual for the couple that wants an imaginative and  personal wedding ceremony.  You can truly have the celebration that you have dreamed about  without compromising your beliefs or style!   Your ceremony might be the first one your guests have ever listened to!

Who am I?  

Honestly, it's not about me, but it is about us, so here goes!  I bring a unique blend of talents to my work as a Celebrant. As an event planner, I have helped to orchestrate  weddings and commitment ceremonies for over 20 year.  As a motivational speaker, I create an atmosphere of excitement, of introspection and discovery. As a writer, I draw on a rich variety of traditional and contemporary resources, blending the inspiring and the significant with the humorous.

I have the best job in the world!   I help my couples  express themselves in ways that are truly meaningful to their families and friends. It is a wonderful way to start your journey as wedded partners in life!

Let’s talk!

about including children, pets, relatives or other special guests in your ceremony. about including traditions from your backgrounds or creating new ones. about readings, music and art that you love. about celebrating milestone anniversaries and renewal of vow ceremonies. about searching for unusual and charismatic sites for your wedding or commitment ceremony. about the five other officiants who work with me.

Celia delivered an amazing ceremony! She helped us along every step of the way by personally Skyping with us, having us fill out a detailed questionnaire to personalize the stories and speech (which itself was an entertaining process), and was always available by phone or email. She has plenty of great ideas as well, for people who may not know where to start! She arrived at the venue early with plenty of time to go over the elements of the ceremony again, and the post-ceremony paperwork was filed right away. We couldn't ask for better. Thank you again!

Call Celia, you will not be disappointed. Celia performed our ceremony last week and we couldn't have been happier. She was a pleasure to work with throughout the planning phase and helped us get exactly the ceremony we wanted. All of our friends and family kept telling us how beautiful and unique the ceremony was. Thank you, Celia!
Celia Milton Celebrant responded with the following comments:
Thank YOU! What a sweet, personal wedding day! AND as a bonus, you really managed to outsmart the rainy skies too. I hope you enjoyed every minute. Congratulations again!

Celia is the BEST!!!! You need her at your wedding. Seriously. All of my friends and family have been telling me that our ceremony is one of the best they've ever seen!!! I could not have been happier with my experience working with Celia. Not only was our ceremony extremely special, personal, original, romantic, tear-jerking, joyous, and bring just the right amount of giggle (to keep me from crying), Celia goes above and beyond. After sending out deposit, Celia sent us a wonderful gift box full of little trinkets and gifts to celebrate our engagement and prepare us for our wedding day. It included mints, chopstick and tips for the perfect wedding kiss! Following up with our ceremony, she sent me a list of places I will need to change my name and send us a thank you card to the house. Just so sweet!!!!
Celia Milton Celebrant responded with the following comments:
Thank you so much! What a fun wedding; I really enjoyed discovering your venue too; it was so pretty! Best wishes for a fabulous *married* summer!

Celia was the first officiant we spoke with, and we didn't need to do any searching after that! She's EXCELLENT. Our wedding ceremony itself was very important to us -- we wanted to create a really special moment for ourselves and our guests that would be remembered forever. We couldn't have pulled it off without Celia. She took so much time with us to craft our story -- and not just to get the details, but to understand the root of our relationship so she could convey it to our audience. Celia's incredible -- engaging, genuine, heartfelt, and funny! -- and helped make our wedding day everything we hoped it would be. We can't thank her enough!
Celia Milton Celebrant responded with the following comments:
Your wedding was such a pleasure! All the carefully planned creative touches you added to the ceremony and the reception truly made your celebration so unique to you. Best wishes for a fabulous *married* summer!

Where do I even start? Celia Milton put together the most perfect ceremony for our April wedding at the Indian Trail Club. She took so much time to understand who we are as a couple and created a ceremony that reflected us as a couple. Our ceremony was funny, romantic, personal and thoughtful -- it was as if she was a family friend of ours who knew our love story and couldn't wait to tell it. Her tone and delivery was so calming during the ceremony that you could hear a pin drop. So many people have told us that it was the most personal, best ceremony they have ever been to -- and that is because of Celia. She was such a pleasure to work with and made us so calm leading up to the big day (indeed, she proactively called me to put my mind at ease when they predicted a snow storm in April and told me she wouldn't allow snow -- and she delivered on that too since it was a perfect day!). We cannot thank (or recommend) Celia enough.
Celia Milton Celebrant responded with the following comments:
Thank you so much! Snow? Nope!! While I like to think I have cosmic powers, the universe was truly cooperating with us, and I think all the cherry blossoms in the room had a magic all their own. Just stunning! It was such a pleasure to work with you and to have a chance to meet your friends and family; so much history together and so much enthusiasm for your wedding! Best wishes for many, many years of love and laughs!

Our guests asked us, "How long have you known the officiant? Which of you two grew up with her?" That's because she wrote the most personalized ceremony that really talked about us and our love story in a very intimate way. But we only found her through searching on this site! Celia took time to talk with us for hours - whereas other officiants quickly asked questions than told us pricing - and really worked with us to make sure everything felt true to who we are. She's also a beautiful, comfortable speaker who will engage the crowd (go to YouTube to see her very poetic style), and she'll make you smile and laugh the whole way down the aisle. We are so happy we found her!
Celia Milton Celebrant responded with the following comments:
Thank you so, so much! I have to say that I had a total advantage because you both were so enthusiastic about the process of writing together and gave me so much to work with! It was my pleasure. Best wishes for a long, and exciting life together!

I was referred to Celia Milton through a florist. From the moment we started talking I knew she was the right person to marry us. I am Jewish and my now husband is Catholic. She was able to provide knowledge on both traditions and when needed had personal resources she would reach out to. She was patient with me while we spent hours on the phone and exchanged various emails about the ceremony. No matter how many times my mind changed she went with the flow and offered guidance as needed. The ceremony itself was beautiful, unique and such a representation of both of us. I can't tell you how many people have come up to me to tell me how amazing Celia and the entire ceremony was. I can't thank her enough!! Chose Celia you won;t regret it!
Celia Milton Celebrant responded with the following comments:
Congratulations, and what a fabulous way to usher in the new year! There were so many interesting, personal touched to your day; it really did reflect your relationship and your families too. I loved that your uncle helped with the wine, and having close relatives read the 'seven blessings' was just so touching. I hope you had a wonderful, wonderful celebration!

First and foremost, My wedding was 2 days ago and I have not stopped getting glowing feedback from all of my guests in regards to my ceremony! Celia was nothing less than perfect from start to finish! My now husband and I didn't necessarily have a clear vision of our exact ceremony but we knew the vibe we wanted --sentimental and serious without being mushy and stuffy. We wanted there to be some humor without it being one big, long joke and wanted it to feel important without being dull. Celia hit ALL of those points for us! We found her through our venue - The Barn at Perona Farms in Andover,NJ-- and she was just so easy to talk to that we knew she was right for us. After just one skype phone call and a questionnaire, she as able to get a first draft together of our ceremony that was just about perfect for us. She was helpful without being pushy and was able to capture all of the sentiments we wanted. She not only takes control of the ceremony so you really don't have to worry about anything but she also makes sure you don't forget any of the important stuff (like actually picking up your marriage license and bringing it with you on the big day!) I would HIGHLY recommend Celia for any wedding or event! She honestly made our ceremony perfect for us and I could not be happier.

Congratulations! What a fun wedding and such a beautiful way to kick off the holiday season; the decor was so gorgeous! I hope you had an amazing party. Thank you again for including me in the fun!

Celia officiated my wedding on 11/4/17 at the Tides Estate in NJ. The vows were personalized, light-hearted, not too mushy, and best of all, short! My hubby was super nervous and anxious so we wanted to keep it as simple and quick as possible. Celia put him at ease with her friendly and fun demeanor. Everyone kept asking if she knew us personally! Nope, she just made us fill out a 7-page questionnaire in order to get to know us and tailor the vows to our own love story. We wanted to keep it informal, funny, and brief and she delivered! I highly recommend Celia!
Celia Milton Celebrant responded with the following comments:
Thank you so much! Your wedding had so many beautiful personalized touches, and your style really stood out! I'm so glad you had such a beautiful day too! Congratulations again!

Celia is absolutely amazing and everything we could have hoped for as an officiant. She is super easy to work with, extremely creative, accommodating, and has such a unique personality. Our wedding ceremony couldn't have been more perfect for us and we owe it all to her. We also worked with Celia to incorporate both a hand-fasting and a ring warming--which we loved--Celia very quickly and efficiently taught our Best Man and Maid of Honor what they needed to do during the ceremony and kept us ALL very calm and confident. Celia truly captured us as a couple in her ceremony script, and also captured the attention of our audience. We received a ton of compliments on our ceremony and our guests couldn't stop talking about it!
Celia Milton Celebrant responded with the following comments:
Thank you so much! It's always a pleasure to work with couples who have such a clear vision of how they want their ceremony to happen! I loved your flower rings too; every detail was simply perfect. Happy **married** holidays to you!!
