    Cari is amazing!

    We hired Celia’s company after she officiated my sister’s wedding. When she wasn’t available, we were introduced to Cari who would be our officiant. Cari was the perfect fit for us. She is a lovely write and wrote a beautiful, personalized ceremony for us that so many guests praised. It was heartfelt and really hit all the notes we were looking for. We highly recommend Cari for all types of weddings. She was a doll and extremely professional.

    Celia Milton is amazing!!

    Celia Milton, is an amazing officiant. Our wedding was planned really well and well communicated. Celia is very meticulous in her work and will take care of the parties involved. She is open to new ideas and will customize the whole event as per your needs. We had a really good time and it's all thanks to the efforts Celia puts into each and every part of our journey.

    Rev. Celia Milton is the best!

    We had our wedding on Nov. 21st 2020. It was a small gathering of course but Rev. Celia Milton made the ceremony truly special and personable. I recommend hiring her just because her sermon is beautiful during the ceremony and makes people really want to listen.

    Married January 2nd

    My fiance and I wanted a small zoom ceremony to start the new year, and Celia helped us so much. She was so kind and you can tell she has a passion for what she does. We were able to get married in our home with our two pugs completely stress free. Thank you so much Celia!

    Could not have chosen better!

    Celia was the most perfect officiant for our intimate wedding ceremony. We wanted a confident, well-spoken professional with a sense of humor and ability to really personalize our script, and we got the most wonderful match in Celia. When we read our ceremony script draft, it felt like she had known us for years. It fit us that well. She gave us so much freedom to personalize and adjust, and we didn't even have to. On the day of our wedding, Celia went above and beyond to stop by our getting-ready room to check name pronunciation and wish me good luck, and head to the ceremony space and offer to help with anything we needed. Her ceremony was so beautiful and moving, all while being funny and uplifting. She even sent us a small gift box of goodies before the wedding and a beautiful card right after. We so highly recommend her!

    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!

    We loved having Celia as our officiant. She is always such a joy to talk to. I love her writing style and how she pays attention to detail. She made the ceremony so special and personable and we loved her sense of humor. Everyone loved her and talked about how much they enjoyed our ceremony.

    Like Family!

    We booked Celia early on into our 2-year engagement and as soon as we met her, there was no one else that we could go with that would be better! Celia presented with both an easy going, hilarious personality….and also a serious respect for the important occasion that she was going to be a part of. Throughout the wedding planning and covid quarantine process, Celia would check in with us to make sure we were holding up ok and to answer all of our questions. She was easily reachable all of the time and she created the most beautiful ceremony that really captured who we are as individuals and as a couple coming together. We were laughing one second and crying the next. There wasn’t a single moment that I would have changed about her work. If I could give more then a five star review, I would!

    It was just so fun to work with you because YOU TWO are so fun. I honestly think that every wedding ceremony is informed and created by the couple (even though they don't write it) and your personality as a couple just came through so clearly in all of our conversations. And on the day? You made me cry six times. I believe I mentioned that I have rules about that.
    I don't even need to wish you the best; you have it! Congratulations!

    Simply the best!

    We cannot recommend Celia more highly! The ceremony Celia created for us was beautiful- it really felt like “us” and was so special to have it be so personalized. Not to mention all the help Celia gave us navigating changes due to COVID- from brainstorming new locations (yes, we went with one of her recommendations!) to guiding us through all the details we forgot - she really helped make our day special, no matter how different from our original plans. Celia was always a phone call away - we cannot thank her enough for her support and such a perfect ceremony!

    Celia made our backyard wedding so PERFECT =]

    How do I do Celia justice with this review?! No pressure...Celia is INCREDIBLE to work with! She has a real PASSION for joining love together. We asked Celia to preform our wedding ceremony right after we picked our venue. Things were going great until the dreaded PANDEMIC (cue gloomy music). Thankfully our friends and family were ok but so many things went wrong for us during this time. Celia stuck with us! She was totally onboard for our plan B, the backyard wedding. Using her past EVENT PLANNING skills she helped us find caterers and servers. The ceremony she preformed was so BEAUTIFUL!! I am getting teary eyed just thinking about it again. The readings she chose were unique to us and only us. You would've thought she knew us all our lives. She kept us so involved in the planning. She kept us laughing and made us feel comfortable. It did not feel like a stranger was marrying us but rather, it felt like a friend was marrying us. My husband and I could not be more GRATEFUL for Celia and her beautiful ceremony she presented us with.

    Thank you so much for your kind words! What a sweet, personal afternoon! Your families were so gracious and fun, and the backyard is stunning! I give you big props for completely changing your plans and making the day feel like it was exactly what you imagined all along.

    Best wishes for an amazing and exciting life together; I don't think there is any doubt about that!

    Look no further for your wedding officiant!

    As a couple that needed to reschedule their wedding three times, you can imagine how challenging a task it was to make our wedding day possible. But when it came to Celia Milton, she could not have been more accommodating. Celia took the time to listen to our every need down to the very last detail, and was incredibly helpful whenever we needed a little extra guidance. Celia created the most amazing ambiance for our wedding ceremony. From the first word she said, her soft spoken, loving tone captivated every last one of our guests, and her positive energy was contagious! All of our loved ones had smiles on their faces and tears in their eyes as Celia recalled the important milestones of our love story, and later announced as us husband and wife. Celia took the time to personalize our ceremony for us in many special ways. From remembering our loved ones who are no longer with us, to honoring our mothers with a rose ceremony, to including all of our guests in a heartfelt ring warming, down to the very special shoutout to our little french bulldog who means the world to us, Celia was flawless. The entire ceremony was absolutely breathtaking, and after many uncertain months, we finally had our very own fairytale of a wedding.

    A beautiful ceremony

    We got married on 10/30/20 and immediately got so many compliments on Celia's ceremony. She sent us a full ceremony script and we reviewed prior to the wedding. It was just perfect - personal without being embarrassing, sentimental, sweet and just a touch of humor. We had four different wedding dates and Celia was so flexible and kind during the whole process. We can't thank her enough!

    Best wishes for many more years of love and laughs and international travel too!

    Absolutely Wonderful!!!!

    It was an absolute pleasure working with Celia from beginning to end. We booked her very early on since she was highly recommended by our venue coordinator. She is so helpful, attentive and kind. She personalized our ceremony and vows to really fit who we are as a couple. She also was very empathetic and positive during the postponement and rescheduling of our wedding. We could not say enough wonderful things about her and we highly recommend working with her.

    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.

    January 2020

    Celia was absolutely amazing! We received SO many compliments on our wedding ceremony. Celia took the time to make our ceremony really special and unique, really painting a perfect picture of me and my husband. Before the wedding, she made sure that we approved the script, so there were no surprises, and was very flexible with any changes we wanted. She is very well spoken, and kind of quirky, which made the ceremony fun and enjoyable to be a part of- it wasn't dry or ordinary. She also has a very calm and nurturing voice, which really sets the mood for a romantic ceremony. Everyone raved about beautiful the ceremony was, and we owe so much of it to Celia!

    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!

    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!
    Best wishes for a wonderful 'married' Thanksgiving!!!

    Beautiful ceremony!

    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!

    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!
    Best wishes for a lovely ***married** holiday season and new year!

    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!!
