About Reverend Kayelily Middleton
Weddings are my passion! Your wedding ceremony is the key that opens the door to your wedding day. It is the first event of your wedding day with your guests and sets the tone for the whole day. You book vendors who specialize in weddings so why not book a minister who specializes in weddings? I will joyfully deliver the words of your beautiful ceremony--a collaboration of the 3 of us that reflects your beliefs, your love and commitment and your personalities. We warmly welcome your guests, pay tribute to your loved ones, tell the story of your love and commitment which flows into your vows and ring exchange, the pronouncement of marriage and happily present you to your guests! This feeling of closeness and celebration continues right on into your reception.
Kayelily has been officiating weddings since seminary ordination in 1997 and her services are highly recommended by wedding professionals and venues in the Triangle area.
Kayelily books up quickly so email or call or text her ASAP to check her availability for your wedding date and time and schedule your free consultation.
Kayelily serves couples in the Triangle area of North Carolina--Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill and surrounding areas.
Let's Talk Pricing
Bells and Whistles: Highly customized and personalized ceremony which includes your story and more. My fee ranges from $550 to $850 depending on the distance I must travel to and from your wedding and rehearsal.
Sweet and Simple: For a small private elopement-style wedding with no preliminary consultation, no rehearsal, and a less personalized wedding ceremony based on what you tell me you want, my fee ranges from $350 to $450 depending on the distance I must travel.
Kayelily's Wedding Garden: For small intimate weddings in my beautiful wedding garden in North Raleigh you get the Sweet and Simple ceremony and the venue. What a deal--because I don't have to travel! Space for up to 20 guests. No reception or dressing facilities provided. Just arrive 10 minutes before your ceremony with your marriage license and we will do your wedding! You may bring a photographer. Wheelchair friendly--no steps. Fees range from $250 on weekdays to $300 on weekends.
Your wedding day is just one day in time and while every couple expects they will be together for the rest of their lives, even the most carefully planned wedding does not guarantee a lifetime of marital bliss. Therefore, creating the strongest foundation possible prior to marriage is a wise idea. Kayelily has an inventory that you can take on line that will see how well you fit together as a couple.
Kayelily's Marriage 101 course is an interactive exchange between the couple and Kayelily about marriage and relationship skills. You each separately complete a relationship inventory online (takes about 20 minutes) which generates a compatibility profile that is sent to Kayelily. In your following three sessions with Kayelily you will go over the results. It will show how your core values and personality traits fit together and identify areas that are strong and those that should be strengthened. Kayelily teaches communication skills and a simple conflict resolution technique, two essential skills necessary for a happy enduring marriage. $600.

In addition to officiating weddings, Kayelily also performs renewal of vows ceremonies, baby blessing ceremonies or christening/baptism/naming ceremonies and celebration of life memorials. She has also done house blessing ceremonies and could also create meaningful rite of passage ceremonies if requested.
