About

I’m a supporter of all who love each other and want to be married. Straight, gay, interracial, intercultural, everyone! All are entitled to their day of beauty.

I have performed weddings for many different couples, some I’ve known and some I only met a short time before their wedding. I’ve been lucky enough to work in large halls, small bars, and even some family rooms. I meet with every couple first and get to know them so that it’s not just a generic ceremony, it's yours.

YellowBird Wedding believes that you found the person you love and want to marry. The rest should be simple...because simple is beautiful...

We couldn't have asked for a better officiant! We were confident that Michelle would do a good job based on other reviews and family personal reviews but we never expected her to make us feel like we were the only two people in the world and personalize her words to fit us so well. We are more spiritual than religious and we were worried that our families would be offended/ disappointed not having scriptures from the bible. Also, we were worried it would be too short since we though there wasn't much to fill in the time without that kind of stuff. We had a wine ceremony which Michelle did wonderfully with the meaning and story of it. She went above and beyond with quotes and her own words to make a beautiful ceremony for us that we will never forget. She didn't attend the rehearsal, which she states in her first meeting and on her website, unless it's necessary. She didn't need to come. She did a fabulous job and having never heard what she wrote before, we were genuinely stunned and it added so much to the authenticity of our ceremony and truly showed our love that day.

Megan is Amazing

I can't say enough good things about our experience with Megan. She is very professional, very easy to talk to, and took time above and beyond of what was expected of her to ensure our day went flawlessly. She arrived on site the day of the ceremony, took the initiative to speak to our musicians to ensure our music would align with the key points of the ceremony, and just generally was a very calming presence during the entire thing. Plus my family loved her. Going into the process I was worried we might not hit it off with the officiant, not knowing them well. She quickly put these concerns to rest. After the first call, my now wife and I both let out a resounding "She's it".

She's genuine, professional, easy to work with, and knows exactly what she's doing. Go with Megan.

Lovely ceremony, highly polished speech

Michelle led a lovely ceremony and helped our wedding flow so smoothly! She clearly has a ton of experience officiating weddings and made sure everything stayed on track and on time. Her speech was touching and we really appreciate how she put in the time to get to know us a bit. She came up with a ceremony that felt personal and meaningful! Michelle was also super responsive and helped answer all our questions (and we had a lot!)

Whenever our clients ask us if we have an officiant to recommend to them, Michelle is always the first one who comes to mind. We have observed her officiate many weddings for our clients, and every single time, she does a fabulous job. Her ceremonies are personal, warm, and specifically tailored to reflect the uniqueness of each couple. She is a very talented public speaker, and she has a knack for making anyone feel instantly comfortable. We love her, and we're confident that you will, too!
