A Joy to Work With
Celia was enthusiastic, helpful, and open-minded. She helped us craft a unique wedding, was quite flexible in incorporating our own requests, and provided some much needed guidance where appropriate. We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant!Sent on 05/29/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Thank you Eric and Victoria! What a singular, unique wedding ceremony! The setting you picked was simply perfect; I really can't imagine a better backdrop for such an intimate and intentional service.

Celia Nailed It!
I found Celia and a few other potential officiants through this site and after talking with Celia I knew I wanted her to perform the ceremony. We had several phone conversations leading up to the day. Celia took the time to get to know us and made us so comfortable with the wording we chose. She is thoughtful, insightful, funny and truly cares about making this day special for you. I thought the reception and dancing would be my favorite part of the wedding but the ceremony was more than I could have wished for. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.Sent on 10/30/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Thank you so, so much! What a sweet wedding and such a lovely relaxed location! It really is one of my favorites, and I know your friends and family had a great time!

I can’t thank Celia enough for all the things she did for our wedding. She was always available to talk and was able to make a personal ceremony for us that was both romantic and light hearted like we wanted. I would recommend her to anyone! Thanks Celia!Sent on 12/06/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Thank you so, so much! It was such a pleasure to create your wedding; you both were so thoughtful in your responses to the questionnaire and in our conversations, I really felt your ceremony truly reflected you! The setting was magnificent, and I know your friends had a ball!

We are so happy that we used Celia Milton Wedding Officiants for our wedding. We spoke with Celia who was great, and worked with Kari for our ceremony. We had great conversations with her and she was very invested in us as a couple. She wrote a personal, funny, and meaningful ceremony that worked out perfectly. Highly reccomened! Thank you for being a part of our special day.Sent on 12/17/2019

Personal & Intimate Ceremony in Brooklyn
My husband and I wanted a unique ceremony that felt personal & intimate for everyone involved. After watching Celia's videos from other weddings I knew she would deliver exactly what we were looking for. She got to know us and asked questions that made us feel at ease and reassured. I was asked so many times at our wedding how I knew Celia, everyone thought we must have known each other prior to the wedding because of how personal and invested she was during our ceremony. Celia is amazing! She was quick and humorous when she needed to be but then emotional and so sincere throughout the entire ceremony. I couldn't have asked for a better officiant. I know it can be a scary process picking people to be part of your special day, especially the ceremony. We didn't want it to be boring but we also didn't want it to be a show. We wanted our story to be told to everyone we loved most. Celia was the perfect officiant for us. She will always be part of my memories of our wedding day. Thank you, Celia!Sent on 11/14/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Hi! Thank you so, so much! I absolutely loved your wedding! Every detail was so personal and so 'you'! The Winery was such a warm, sweet location, and have to say that your DJ's playlist was probably one of the most inventive and expressive I've ever heard. Your careful attention to detail came though in every corner of the night!

Beautiful and personal
Celia is amazing! My husband and I got to know Celia through a few phone calls and she made us feel very comfortable from the start! She had so many ideas for us to help create the perfect ceremony! It was absolutely everything that we wanted, short and sweet, but personal and funny. The guests loved her and raved about her! She has also been so extremely helpful with all the details with paperwork, etc. We would choose her again, without a doubt!Sent on 10/21/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Hello! It was such a pleasure to work with you both! Your story is one of such serendipity and love it would be hard NOT to be charmed by it. And all that purple!!! Just gorgeous!
Alyssa · Married on 09/28/2019
Celia is hands down one of the best officiants in NJ! She is very popular and books up fast for a reason! She created a highly personalized ceremony and executed it flawlessly. We received many compliments on how beautiful and personal our ceremony was (I find the majority of wedding ceremonies boring and ours truly was not!) and how the ceremony perfectly reflected us individually and as a couple. Included all of the quotes / mentions we asked for and really took the time to get to know us. Thank you Celia for truly creating something special!Sent on 11/04/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Thank you so, so much! It was so great to work with you; you were so open to including so many fun elements (like "Falling in Love is like Owning a Dog as your opening reading!)! It made it very easy to create your script!
Brittany · Married on 09/27/2019
Celia was fantastic! All our guests thought Celia knew us. She was spot on with our ceremony and made it so special. Thank you again Celia!Sent on 09/28/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Thank you so much! What a gorgeous day you had! There were so many unique touches you included (bagpipers!! ), it was really fun.
Naomi · Married on 09/22/2019
Celia is the best!!
You dont usually receive compliments on your choice of officiant, but with Celia you will!. Not only is she an absolute pleasure to work with, she gets to know you as a couple and delivers the perfect words. Everyone loves how she made them laugh, and cry, and think about love. Without being overly religious or too lax. It was just perfect! I cant think of a better word to describe our big day. Thank you Celia!!Sent on 12/30/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Thank you so, so much! You were so much fun to work with, and it really looked like you were having a great time during the ceremony!!

Perfection for a wedding service
Although we have to admit Celia wasn't our first selection, as we didn't know her. She was highly recommended by the officiant who was not able to preside over our wedding. As it turns out, we couldn't have asked for someone who would better put together an order of service that truly captured who we are as a couple, our story and history. Helping our guests fully understand our history and making it easier for all of them to in turn become more familiar with one another. Therefore helping all our guests be able to join together as one group, as opposed to several groups of people from various relationships coming to one couples wedding.
Celia has a style and grace about the way she performs her task. She worked with us to truly get to know us prior to our wedding. Pulling together an amazing service filled with laughs, tears, memories and feelings. All those who attended love how she not only presided over the event, but became part of the event. It wasn't like having a stranger or person present who was there to just perform a task. She became fully engrossed with the event and our love for one another.
We couldn't recommend anyone better to perform the task. Celia also presided over our DJ's wedding, and this only helped to build more synergy between all those working to make our day something really special. It far exceeded our dreams.Sent on 10/09/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Thank you so, so much for your kind words. The setting was so gorgeous and your families were just so excited for you! It was really lovely to feel so much support and love for you.

Perfect personalized ceremony
My husband and I got married back in the beginning of August. Celia made our ceremony beyond perfect. When I first contacted her about possibly using her has our officiant we ended up chatting for over an hour! Instantly knew she would be a perfect fit. She got to know our whole story. She made our ceremony so personal, people even asked if we knew her before the wedding! She’s super friendly and outgoing , she made our wedding ceremony non stressful . Couldn’t have asked for a better officiant !Sent on 10/14/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Congratulations again, and thank you so much! You orchestrated so many personal touches and I think that made all the difference!
Michelle · Married on 06/29/2019
We absolutely love Celia! From the first time I spoke with Celia over FaceTime, I knew I wanted her to officiate our wedding. She had an infectious personality and an amazing sense of humor. Celia took the time to really get to know our love story and understand what made our relationship so unique. She worked with us every step of the way to create a ceremony that was personal (but not too personal) and memorable for all. I've lost track of the number of compliments we've received about Celia since our big day!Sent on 07/25/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Thank you so, so much! What a lovely setting and such a great crowd too! It was really a pleasure to collaborate with you.
Danielle · Married on 06/23/2019
Celia was recommended to us by our DJ and since the moment we talked I knew she’d have to marry us! She is so kind and caring, funny too! She put my mind at ease with a lot of things! She was of course patient with me as I love to procrastinate and so does my husband! The ceremony was amazing and she incorporated everything we love about our life into it!Sent on 06/26/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Thank you Danielle and David! Congratulations!!
Carla · Married on 06/22/2019
Celia wrote a magnificent ceremony script for our wedding. She took the time to learn about us as a couple and about our vision for our celebration. She is warm and welcoming and recommended beautiful readings as well as rituals. Our friends and family were moved by the ceremony and gave us many compliments about how meaningful and personalized it was. She guided us through the process perfectly and kept our minds at ease. We were not able to have a rehearsal but no one could tell--Celia kept things running smoothly and seamlessly. She was a true pleasure to work with and we were so happy to have her with us on our special day.Sent on 07/15/2019
Ashley Pollitt · Married on 06/15/2019
Choosing Celia to officiate our wedding was one of the best decisions we made! Our DJ recommended her (after having previously booked her for his wedding). From the start, she was punctual, professional, kind, reassuring, and an absolute pleasure. She took away all of the stress behind, really, the most important part of the day... the ceremony! Celia 1.) learned our entire love story, 2.) drafted and shared a script, 3.) handled the paperwork, and 4.) advised "next steps" post-wedding. Thank you, Celia!Sent on 08/05/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Congratulations!! Thank you so much weighing in on our collaboration! While I'd like to take ALL the credit for the day, you made such smart choices; a terrific, gorgeous venue, an amazing DJ; that is such a good start!
Jessica C. · Married on 05/26/2019
If you're looking for a highly personalized and moving ceremony, Celia is just that officiant who can convey your love story! From our very first call with Celia, she has been so invested in learning about us as a couple and how to make our story transcend into components of our ceremony. We worked closely with Celia in selecting readings and passages that were most meaningful to us. When it came to our wedding day, Celia's delivery provided the perfect mix of engagement and meaning. Many of our guests came up to us after the wedding and commented how much they enjoyed our officiant Celia and the beautiful ceremony. We are so pleased Celia helped make our ceremony such a memorable part of our wedding day!Sent on 06/14/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Hello! Thank you so, so much! You put so much thought into every detail of the whole celebration, it really reflected you perfectly.

We highly recommend Celia!!!Sent on 05/30/2019

Fabulously Wonderful Ceremony
Words cannot describe the fabulously wonderful ceremony Celia created. She took the time to get to know us. And captured the essence of our romance and relationship. She made our special day that much more special with words that not only wowed us but our guests as well.Sent on 10/05/2019

Michael Yelle preformed our wedding ceremony & it absolutely beautiful! All our guests could not stop talking about it. We were the first in our families to do a non traditional wedding so people weren’t sure what to expect. Michael has a way of getting people’s attention & all feel connected during this very special moment! He’s personality was very welcoming & I love his sense of humor. He knows how to make to less nervous about vows. We are so happy to have found them for our wedding!Sent on 04/05/2019

Personal and Personable!
Celia is great! We were following her advice on all the wedding boards before we even thought of hiring her! Once we chose Olde Mill Inn we realized we could try and book her, and we did! She made our ceremony rich with details and told some stories about us. We got to include a hand-fasting and bottle breaking as part of our non-denominational ceremony. Several guests asked us if she knew us beforehand because it felt so personal. She was even patient with our nitpicking edits but also told us (rightly) what would work, despite our doubts. She's definitely a great choice!Sent on 09/28/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Thank you so much! What nitpicking? You two were a breeze! All the personal touches you added to the wedding were just perfect for you and your friends and family!
Claudia · Married on 03/23/2019
Made our day!
Celia was amazing! She tailor made our ceremony so it was exactly what we wanted. Every detail was adjustable and carefully considered and of course, delivered beautifully. The ceremony was perfect. For any couple looking for a wonderfully flexible officiant, look no further!Sent on 04/22/2019
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Congratulations to you! What a fun wedding, and such a lovely setting too! I thought the special touch of having *your* roller coaster on all the plasma TVs at cocktail hour was just hilarious!
Caroline · Married on 12/08/2018
I got married last Friday at 26 Bridge in DUMBO, Brooklyn and Celia was our officiant. From our first Facetime call with Celia my husband and I loved her! We were both raised Catholic but did not want a religious wedding. She worked with us to create a ceremony that was personal, unique to us, and entertaining for our guests. Leading up to the big day we had multiple conversations and she really got to know our love story and what brought us together. Our guests are still talking about our ceremony and asking how long we've known Celia - people literally thought she had known us our whole lives. Some of my friends loved the way she spoke so much that they said she should have her own podcast. Also, when we signed a contract with her she sent us the cutest little box of sentimental items and just sent us a card saying congratulations again. She just makes you happy throughout the whole process.Sent on 12/14/2018
If you are looking for a completely custom, personal, AWESOME, heartfelt ceremony...and want to work with an overall cool person, hire Celia.
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Hi! Thank you for your kind words. I think you created one of the most quintessential NYC weddings! From the moment that I saw you leaning against a graffiti-covered wall taking photos, I knew it was going to be a stylish, fun night! Best wishes for a lovely **married** Christmas!!

Most beautiful personal ceremony
We love Celia! From the first meeting over FaceTime we knew we wanted Celia to officiate our wedding. She has the best personality and is so attentive to every single detail. As soon as we sent our first payement Celia sent us the cutest box with pre wedding goodies in it! Filling out the extensive questionnaire about our relationship and lives was a great way to reminisce about the years me and my fiancé had spent together. We keep hearing from our guests how personal our ceremony was and that is all thanks to the work Celia puts into writing her ceremonies. One of our guests asked us if Celia knew us personally because of the words she said. I can’t recommend Celia enough. Thanks for making our ceremony super memorable!Sent on 12/09/2018
Celia Milton Celebrant's reply:Thank you so much! It was so much fun to work with you; the setting was amazing, and there were so many personal touches (even the tiny bit of snow was pretty)!
