Grace was a busy teacher about to marry a professional hockey player. She was managing many of the wedding details without his help. After she looked over the materials I emailed her, she was relieved. Even though Bill was out of town, our 3-way Skype meeting went smoothly. And so did their wedding. They, and their guests were thrilled.
After the wedding ceremony was over, Grace's father took me aside. "This my 3rd daughter and the 3rd wedding," he said. "The other two ceremonies were nice. And I have been to a lot of weddings in my day. But yours was by far the best ceremony I have ever heard. I can't thank you enough."
Later I heard from Grace that her father AND her sister both changed their speeches because her ceremony had touched them so deeply.

So much time and effort go into planning a wedding, it’s easy to forget the most important part is when you actually get married! We wanted to make sure our ceremony got the same special attention as everything else. Rev. Crystal really took the time to get to know us, and created a ceremony that matched our values and told our story. She’s professional, super responsive to calls and emails, and just a genuinely kind person. Highly recommend!

My wife and I got married in August, and I took over the responsibility of finding our officiant, one who was rated very highly but was also open minded since I has some fun surprises planned for our ceremony. Our wedding venue provided us a list of recommended officiants, and Reverend Crystal Yarlott was listed first. After emailing Rev. Crystal, she got back to me the same day, luckily letting me know she was available on our wedding day. Just a few weeks later, we scheduled a virtual meeting (since ours was a long-distance destination wedding) to get to know one another and discuss particulars. She was so fun to talk to, and it was quite obvious she’s passionate about her work. Over the following months we kept in contact, and she always responded quickly whenever we had questions. One thing we really enjoyed were the monthly newsletters she sent us, which always include helpful tips and advice, much of which we used. As the big day drew nearer, she continued to be supportive, and she worked with us as our vision of the ceremony became clearer and clearer. Since neither my wife nor I have been part of a wedding party before, we requested a rehearsal to ensure our big day went smoothly. Rev. Crystal was punctual, and it was so nice to finally meet her in person! On the day of the wedding, I was the first person to walk down the aisle, and it was comforting having Rev. Crystal’s gleaming face to walk toward! Since my wife and I had opted for a rehearsal, we had a general idea of how our ceremony would flow, but what we didn’t know was how Rev. Crystal had chosen to implement the personal anecdotes and details she knew about us from our discussions and those she’d had with our family to make it extra special, and she certainly did an amazing job! Our ceremony lived up to our perfect vision of what we hoped it might be, which rarely happens in life, and Rev. Crystal played a HUGE part in that! We couldn’t recommend her enough to be your officiant too!Sent on 10/01/2018

We loved having Reverend Crystal Yarlott lead our ceremony. There were many opportunities to talk and get to know each other. We felt the ceremony was extra special because of her thoughtful words.Sent on 08/22/2018

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!
