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 was amazing to work with. She was such a pleasure to talk to and she took the time to really get to know us. All of our guests raved about Celia.

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!!

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 amazing! She worked with us to create the ceremony of our dreams and I will forever be grateful. She worked to understand our story and truly learn what was important for us to include in the ceremony. We received so many compliments on her delivery and style from our guests. Thank you Celia! Highly recommend.
