About Reverend Kayelily Middleton

Creating and Officiating Romantic Fun Weddings!

 

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. 

About Kayelily

Location

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.

Marriage 101 

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. Contact Kayelily at RevK@AWeddingMinister.com to register.

Other Services  

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.

My husband and I originally planned to get married at the courthouse, but we were happy to find Kayelily's wedding garden instead. This is a fantastic option for couples who want to have a small wedding without all the fuss, or those who don't want to spend a lot of money! We met with Kayelily a couple months before the wedding and were immediately very comfortable around her. She sent us a ceremony script and we could make any changes that we wanted. She also gave us a ton of information on getting the marriage license, changing last names, etc. which was very helpful! The wedding ended up being absolutely perfect - it was simple, the garden looked beautiful, and Kayelily did an amazing job performing the ceremony. She is a great speaker and knows how to throw in a bit of humor! Overall, my husband and I loved working with Kayelily and would highly recommend her!

Reverend Kayelily is absolutely amazing. We initially were going to go for a courthouse wedding, but after seeing a video of one performed in the Wake County courthouse I did not want that flourescently-lit basement of a place to be my memory of starting our marriage. I found Kayelily on this site and she responded very quickly and was able to accommodate our slightly hectic schedule to meet with us. Her energy is fantastic, so kind and calm and she really listens to what you want to happen. She sent us the script ahead of time so we could make changes if we wanted (we didn't - she really has a way with words!), gave us good direction on writing our own vows and gave us a perfect ceremony. We held our wedding in her adorable wedding garden in her backyard with our families in attendance and both of our moms agreed that it was such a wonderful, intimate ceremony. My eyes were leaking a bit and Kayelily was so prepared with a handkerchief in her wedding book that she expertly and unobtrusively dabbed my tears without missing a beat! Thank you so much Kayelily for giving us a fantastic memory that we will remember for all the years to come. If I could give you 6 out of 5 stars, I would!!

I've enjoyed working with Kayelily on several weddings, and am looking forward to another one soon! She is very professional, but also knows how to have fun. No stuffy weddings with Kayelily! Each ceremony is individualized for the couple, and you can tell she has taken the time to get to know them. I am happy to recommend Kayelily to couples wanting a ceremony created just for them!

I absolutely love to work with Reverend Kayelily! She is fun and light hearted which allows my clients to relax and enjoy their day. Reverend Kayelily is such a professional and does a wonderful job officiating ceremonies at other venues as well as small weddings in her personal garden. Highly Recommend!!!

I've had the pleasure of working with Kayelilly on several occasions and she is by far one of the most professional, sweetest people I've come across in my time in this industry. She's one of the few(if not only) ministers that offers her own lapel mic, which if you've ever planned a wedding before, you'll know just how valuable that is. She's as much of an asset to have on your wedding day as she is as a friend while planning your wedding. Every couple I've worked with that's worked with her RAVES about her! You're in for a treat!
