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.

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 was absolutely awesome to work with right from the start. We felt like we clicked with her during the initial phone call. The ceremony was everything we had hoped for and more all because she did a fabulous job of choosing what to include and putting it all together. It was completely "us". My Mother told me she was blown away by the ceremony and that she couldn't believe how many people came up to her to say the same thing and to ask how we knew Celia because the ceremony was so personalized they all thought we'd known her forever. I couldn't have imagined a better officiant. Celia Rocks.
Celia Milton Celebrant responded with the following comments:
Hi! Thank you for your kind words! There were so many sweet personal touches at your ceremony and reception, and the trolley? That was FABULOUS! Somehow, we managed to outrun the rain too (even though people say it's good luck, I'll pass, lol! Best wishes for a very happy **married** holiday and new year!

Celia was kind caring, and clearly loves what she does it really shows in her work. The days after the wedding I was told by so many of our guests how beautiful and meaningful her selections were. The interactions we shared with Celia leading up to the wedding kept is at ease. Without any reservation I endorse Celia and highly recommend her. If you read this review, I am not exaggerating and encourage you to contact her.
Celia Milton Celebrant responded with the following comments:
What a stylish, fun wedding! You both were a dream to collaborate with, and I really enjoyed meeting some of your friends and family on the day. Thank you so much for taking your time to weigh in on our time together! I really appreciate it!

I cannot say enough great things about Celia. She created an amazing ceremony for our wedding. During the weeks leading up to the wedding we worked closely with Celia as she got to know us and our story. This was evident in the final ceremony which fully represented us as a couple. She created the perfect balance of sentiment and humor, which is exactly what we wanted. She was open to our feedback and the tone we wanted to set. Throughout the night our guests continued to compliment the ceremony and how great of a job Celia did. Even both of our parents, who have very high standards. If you’re looking for a truly personalized and heartwarming ceremony, look further than Celia. We would recommend her to anyone.

Celia's the bomb! She's everything you want in an officiant - so much so that after our ceremony people asked to be introduced to her because they thought she was a family friend - that's how personal and special she made our ceremony. She was there for us with every little question we had and recommended some really great vendors also. For your wedding shopping, make Celia your first stop!

Celia was all that we hoped for and more! From the first time we met her she was so kind, personable, and very professional. When our wedding venue unexpectedly closed two weeks before the wedding we managed to book another venue, but with a significant stress for everyone involved. Celia remained very calm and supportive through this. She said that the wedding will be beautiful and everything would be just fine, which meant a lot at the moment and turned out to be true! She made our ceremony a one to remember with her beautiful personalized ceremony text. She was absolutely wonderful to work and interact with. We highly recommend Celia to any couple looking for a very professional officiant and a good person.

Celia just married myself and my now husband this past Saturday and I had to come review her right away. There is no other word to describe her than simply amazing! When it came to the part of choosing an officiant during the planning process I fully admit I thought to myself; all ceremonies are always the same, and I wasn't exactly concerned with who we chose. However, once I found Celia, my views on this completely changed. I sent her an email and within minutes had a response and phone call set up to discuss our wedding. Within seconds of speaking to Celia I knew she was the person to marry us. She was throughly excited and interested in not just what we wanted our wedding ceremony to be, but in us as people and our story too, and I knew this was not going to be your typical ceremony. We had several conversations and she turned everything we spoke about into the most amazing story, and when i received the first rough draft of our ceremony script i was brought to tears. She welcomed us to make changes if we chose, but there was absolutely no need to. She chose the most perfect readings that truly reflected us as a couple. Our ceremony was personal, touching, unique, funny, heartfelt, and just utterly beautiful. She included how we met, our engagement story, and spoke about exactly the type of couple we are. She even mentioned our pet Charlie, which not only did we love, but our guests did as well. Right after the ceremony guests immediately began asking if we knew Celia all our lives because she made it so personal and truly "us". I have even had some people reach out to me asking me to send them a copy of her words because they couldn't get over how perfect it was. I thank you Celia from the bottom of my heart for giving us a dream ceremony. Also, thank you for making me realize the ceremony is the most important part of a wedding; I don't think any other officiant than Celia could have done this for me. Book Celia now, you will not for a second regret it!

If you are looking for a personal, meaningful ceremony, you should choose Celia. We received several compliments from our guests that our ceremony (on 8/5/17) was the best they've ever heard. We wanted a short ceremony (no more than 15 minutes - it was outside in August) but meaningful and I feel Celia was able to capture what we were looking for. In those 15 minutes, she shared how we met, we had a close friend read something special to us, we honored our mothers by giving them each a rose, and we said vows that were beautiful. I definitely recommend Celia!

Celia was wonderful from start to finish! She made our wedding so unique and it fit our personalities perfectly. After speaking with Celia, she was able to understand exactly what we wanted for our ceremony. She picked lovely readings and incorporated our requests (including our families, etc.) that made everything perfect. The rest of the night, our guests constantly compliment how lovely and fitting our ceremony was. If you want a personalized ceremony, Celia Milton is definitely the way to go! I couldn't have asked for more and am so thankful for all of her work.

Celia just officiated our wedding and we could not have been happier. She created a personal and touching ceremony that included everything we asked for. She made every step of the planning easy and fun! We could never thank her enough and encourage anyone looking for an officiant to look no further...she's amazing!

My husband and I are of two different faiths, and were looking to have a non-denominational ceremony. I wasn't really even sure where to start when looking for a wedding officiant. A family friend attended a wedding that was officiated by one of Celia's associates, and she came away raving about what a great ceremony it was. After getting her information, I called and spoke to Celia, and after that first conversation I knew she was the officiant for us! Celia sent my husband and I a short survey to fill out to get to know us a little bit, and she somehow managed to turn that information into a ceremony that could have been written by one of our best friends. We were so impressed by her first draft, and she willingly listened to the few changes we wanted to make and went back and forth with us until it was perfect! On our wedding day, Celia arrived early to make sure that we had time to do a quick rehearsal and get all of the paperwork out of the way without feeling rushed. And, while no wedding is complete without some sort of family drama, Celia handled ours like an absolute professional and kept the focus on my husband and I. After the ceremony, we had guests from both sides (and both faiths) telling us how amazing and beautiful our ceremony was, complimenting Celia, and saying it was one of the best ceremonies they had ever witnessed. With so many decisions to make during the wedding planning process, one that we absolutely got right was choosing Celia to officiate our wedding. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone!
