    Wonderful Wedding

    Michelle gave us just the ceremony we were looking for. Although we had only spoken once and emailed a few times, she still made it very personal. We were looking for a spiritual / natural ceremony and Michelle helped guide us in the right direction while also accommodating any of our requests. It was wonderful.

    Thank you both so much! So much spirituality, love, and magic was in the air that day. I love all the elements you two wanted to incorporate and it was all truly beautiful.

    Michele is an angel!!!

    Michele is an angel! That’s the only way to describe how she can be so utterly good at what she does for those who start out as strangers to her and end up as friends for life. She takes such great care to truly understand her couples, from initial connection and leading up to the wedding, and craft their most special and sacred ceremony moment that is perfectly unique to them. It’s incredible! She is in incredible!

    Leading up to our wedding, my husband and I knew that although we were both raised Roman Catholic, because were are not so religious as we are spiritual, we did not want to hold a traditional ceremony in a church. For our parents this was hugely upsetting. However, fast forward to our wedding day... our parents, families, and friends could not stop talking about how beautifully touching and “us” our ceremony was. In fact, we still have guests talking about it now, months later! And our parents!!!

    For us it was important to incorporate into our ceremony all the love and well wishes of our guests in witness. Michele helped to develop our suggestion of a ring warming, where our rings would be passed through each row of our guests so that they could bless our rings. Together with Michele we, also, worked to incorporate a crystal mandala for added blessings of our rings and of our marriage, a unity candle lighting, reiki, and a couple readings which we asked family members to read aloud, and an intimate vow exchange sans microphone. Michele managed to fit everything we were hoping to say and do into our ceremony program so smooth and effortlessly.

    Our ceremony was beyond magical and mystical and love-filled and unforgettable. For my husband and I and for all our guests. It was simply put: perfect!

    To add to it all, Michele so thoughtfully put together a beautifully handmade ceremony book for us to have as a keepsake of our wedding day. She gifted it to us with purposefully selected crystals, herbs, and flowers for a blessed marriage. So special.

    If you want a ceremony that feels like YOUR unique love, with an officiant who is capable of delivering an unforgettably heartfelt experience like no other, choosing Michele should be a NO-BRAINER!

    Thank you Michele for being beautifully you! We love you! :)

    You two are incredible! I adore you both! Thank you for these kind words, they mean so much to me. Cannot wait to see what the next chapters for you two hold.
