Highly recommend Rev. Crystal

Rev. Crystal was amazing to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant in Northern Michigan. Once we agreed on a contract and plan, we met over the phone/FaceTime multiple times leading up to our wedding date. She was very receptive to our wishes and suggestions, and we also loved the way she proceeded with the spaces of creative freedom we agreed on. We most loved how she incorporated fun and lighthearted, but very touching personal aspects of both my partner and I, making it feel so absolutely personal. Again, absolutely loved working with Rev. Crystal and thank her for everything she did!

Great Personal Experience!

When we decided to get married up in the Traverse City area, we were very excited to find our venue and plan all of the details around our big day. Our wedding was truly a destination wedding for all of our friends and family. Since we were traveling in from Chicago, the biggest question we had was who would we find to marry us as we were not getting married in a church and we were not local. We wanted to find someone that would bring a personal touch and was trying to find the perfect person that could be a part of such an intimate moment in front of our friends and family. I had read some reviews and we based on great reviews, we went with Crystal. We opted to pay a bit more to have a more personal ceremony and it was one of the most unique and great ceremonies!! Guests commented on how personal it was and what a special ceremony it was. She spent time leading into the ceremony to really get to know us, and those close to us to create such a truly special ceremony for us. I would highly recommend Crystal to anyone looking for an Officiant!! She was so great!!

I had the pleasure of connecting with Crystal this spring to plan a small, sweet ceremony for my couple coming up from Florida to get married at their family cottage on the shores of Lake Michigan. They immediately felt comfortable entrusting their wedding ceremony to Crystal after their initial consultation, and booked her right away! Crystal was able to work with my couple over a short time period to create a truly sweet and meaningful experience, and was such a pleasure to work with on wedding day! I appreciated how she connected with each family member and vendor on-site, and was adaptable and flexible as we made some last minute set up adjustments on the morning of! I would highly recommend Crystal for a wonderful, memorable, and special wedding ceremony in Northern Michigan!
