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 most confusing piece of the puzzle. Of course, you want  a ceremony that will mark your important commitment, but a traditional church setting may not be appropriate 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  personal 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.

Everyone loved my ceremony thanks to Celia. As a bride, she made the ceremony creation process easy! I work a full time job and she was able to work within my schedule and get ceremony scripts to me fast. We did not even need to make a lot of revisions because Celia truly knows how to bring a ceremony together. The most helpful part, I found, was her advice on how to write vows. I wrote my own and everyone was telling me how fantastic the celebrant and my own personal vows were.

Celia was like one of my close friends from the start! She made us feel at ease and comfortable, just like we were talking with a friend or family member. Celia really went out of her way to help us with anything we might have questions about or concerns about the ceremony. She is extremely intuitive and empathetic, something we believe makes her even more of a shining star in this profession.

Celia starts the process with an interview and a survey for the bride & groom! Do the survey. (I can't stress it enough) Celia learned what was important to us and incorporated our story into a ceremony that was so personal and intimate, it was like she'd be our friend or family member for years. The time and effort she took to speak confidently and casually about us individually and as a couple made for an impactful ceremony that resonated with our guests and us! I fully recommend leaving one of the biggest decisions (choosing a wedding officiant) in Celia's capable hands. She was outstanding and we are so grateful.

We were looking for a non-religious officiant who would let us customize our wedding ceremony and Celia was perfect! She outlined what we needed to include in our ceremony and let us add our own personal touches to make our ceremony our own. She is vibrant, energizing and everyone who attended our wedding enjoyed listening to her speak. I wish I could give more than five stars!

Celia did an excellent job officiating our wedding. She worked with us to create the ceremony we wanted and felt comfortable with. We wanted people to feel the love between us and for the ceremony to reflect our personalities and it totally did!!! I would recommend Celia to anyone!!! She made our wedding day even more special.

This vendor was absolutely amazing. They worked with my time and was so accommodating to me. The level of service was so fantastic and my ceremony was everything I could dream of and more. Michael did my ceremony and he was wonderful. The words he had to say was something I would have written myself. They are so efficient as well, they went right over and filed my paperwork for me. They were also able to provide me with witnesses and tons of information. I will be using them again for my vow renewal. I would recommend the service to anyone.

Celia was absolutely amazing to work with from the moment we booked her! She was recommended to me by my mother and I am so glad she officiated my wedding. She kept in contact with us from start to finish. Although we only spoke on the phone a few times, she was able to create a ceremony that described the relationship my husband and I have perfectly. She also makes great recommendations on ways to make your ceremony unique to you which made our ceremony even more special. My husband and I decided to write our own vows, something I was worried about even though it was my idea. Celia was extremely helpful with this giving us tips and moral support throughout the entire process. Overall our ceremony was EXACTLY how we wanted it, romantic and full of love. We are still getting compliments on how beautiful our ceremony was. Celia was so great to work with. You will not regret working with her!

Celia was really terrific to work with. She was professional and responsive, and worked closely with us to tailor the celebration to exactly what we wanted. The event went flawlessly, and we got many compliments from our guests about how personal and well done the ceremony was. Some people even asked if Celia was an old friend of ours. I highly recommend her without any reservations.

Stop looking. Just book Celia! I can't even tell you how many officiants we met with. More than I would care to admit. When we finally met with Celia, we were exhausted by the officiant search, but we knew right away that she was the perfect fit! She was the ideal combination of humor, wit and sincerity. She was well-spoken and professional and we had complete faith in her that our ceremony would go perfectly. And it was the best decision we made. She was professional throughout the entire process. She sent us the script of our ceremony and it honestly brought me to tears. She called and checked in a few days before and assured a nervous bride that everything was set to go. On our wedding day, she was nothing short of perfect. Our ceremony was so personalized and meaningful and it was all thanks to Celia. The amount of compliments we got about her was overwhelming. People thought she was a friend of the family that had seen me grow up for years. That's the highest level of officiant you can achieve; when guests believe you are a family friend. Her ceremonies are beautifully written and based on our preferences, was the perfect mix of romance and humor. To all future brides, I'm serious when I say, stop looking and just contact Celia. She's everything you are looking for in an officiant. Love, Jersey

Celia was great from the very beginning! I was researching online for an officiant and i couldn't find what my fiance and i were looking for. The municipal building in our town provided a list and Celia was on there. From the very first phone call and email coordination i knew she would be the one. Her personality is infectious, she listens to what you want, and is clearly very experienced in this field. The speech she prepared for our wedding was so great, our guests were laughing and crying at the same time. She truly captured our love story. I received so many compliments from our guests about Celia. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a unique officiant.

Celia was fantastic to work with! She worked closely with us to create a ceremony that was a true reflection of us. Through every step of her planning, she kept us involved. Even with our busy schedules, Celia always made time for us using phone calls and or emails. She performed our ceremony at the brownstone on October 16th. Everyone raved about how beautiful the ceremony was and truly believed that she was a close family friend. Many people said that it was their favorite wedding ceremony because of how personalized it was. We would highly recommend Celia!
