    So much time and effort go into planning a wedding, it’s easy to forget the most important part is when you actually get married! We wanted to make sure our ceremony got the same special attention as everything else. Rev. Crystal really took the time to get to know us, and created a ceremony that matched our values and told our story. She’s professional, super responsive to calls and emails, and just a genuinely kind person. Highly recommend!

    My wife and I got married in August, and I took over the responsibility of finding our officiant, one who was rated very highly but was also open minded since I has some fun surprises planned for our ceremony. Our wedding venue provided us a list of recommended officiants, and Reverend Crystal Yarlott was listed first. After emailing Rev. Crystal, she got back to me the same day, luckily letting me know she was available on our wedding day. Just a few weeks later, we scheduled a virtual meeting (since ours was a long-distance destination wedding) to get to know one another and discuss particulars. She was so fun to talk to, and it was quite obvious she’s passionate about her work. Over the following months we kept in contact, and she always responded quickly whenever we had questions. One thing we really enjoyed were the monthly newsletters she sent us, which always include helpful tips and advice, much of which we used. As the big day drew nearer, she continued to be supportive, and she worked with us as our vision of the ceremony became clearer and clearer. Since neither my wife nor I have been part of a wedding party before, we requested a rehearsal to ensure our big day went smoothly. Rev. Crystal was punctual, and it was so nice to finally meet her in person! On the day of the wedding, I was the first person to walk down the aisle, and it was comforting having Rev. Crystal’s gleaming face to walk toward! Since my wife and I had opted for a rehearsal, we had a general idea of how our ceremony would flow, but what we didn’t know was how Rev. Crystal had chosen to implement the personal anecdotes and details she knew about us from our discussions and those she’d had with our family to make it extra special, and she certainly did an amazing job! Our ceremony lived up to our perfect vision of what we hoped it might be, which rarely happens in life, and Rev. Crystal played a HUGE part in that! We couldn’t recommend her enough to be your officiant too!

    We loved having Reverend Crystal Yarlott lead our ceremony. There were many opportunities to talk and get to know each other. We felt the ceremony was extra special because of her thoughtful words.

    Crystal Yarlott served as the officiant for our wedding, and she was absolutely outstanding! We felt lucky to have found her, through the Northern Michigan wedding officiants website. Her style really worked for us. We live in Washington state, and married in Northport, MI as part of a family reunion. Crystal valued getting to know us as a couple, and spent time talking on the phone learning more about us. We tried a FaceTime call, it our internet connection is not so good where we live — on an island in WA. But we probably talked for an hour or so on the phone, and Crystal’s easy going and friendly demeanor helped her get to know us well, as it was simple to share our story with her. Her words at our wedding were just beautiful, and my family all raves about her! Very strong recommendation!

    Crystal was absolutely amazing. She was wonderful to work with and made our ceremony so special. Looking back, there is not a single thing I would change. We were from out of town and she was very flexible making times for us to meet and even helped us after the ceremony with a little paperwork mishap we had (not a mishap on her part, but she helped us fix a mistake we made). High recommend!!

    Crystal was a pleasure to work with in the planning of our ceremony! She asked many questions about how my husband and I met, what are common interests are, and what we love about and find special in one another. She incorporated our vision and her ideas into a very beautiful ceremony. Crystal has a sweet, caring attitude and you can that tell she loves what she does! I would recommend her to anyone who wants a lovely, memorable special day made just for the two of you!

    Reverend Crystal is so nice! She is very experienced, professional, and easy to talk to. I especially love how she donates part of her fee to an animal rescue. She's also quick to respond to your questions, knowledgeable, non-judgemental, and she offers quite a bit of variety so you can really make your wedding ceremony just how you want it! She did the perfect ceremony for us. You'll be in good hands if you choose her!

    We would like to thank Rev Crystal Yarlott from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible work she did on our wedding day! Her incredibly kind personality, loving energy, and connection to Source were unmatched. Rev Crystal created a special and customized ceremony that was completely unique to Ryan and I. We received an enormous amount of compliments from our guests for her sweet and caring message and presentation of love. We especially appreciate her willingness to meet with us beforehand and help facilitate the rehearsal. It was such a gift to have her beforehand and it made the actual ceremony much less intimidating! We also appreciate her partnership with the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, which made the process much easier as we were married at that location.

    We are so thankful for everything she did behind the scenes that made a difference for us! Her customized stories and support for our love and marriage really made an impact. The pre-marriage prep was necessary, confirming, and a joy to explore with Rev Crystal. Check out her YouTube channel for more yummy content too @clyar429 ! We love her!!

    Our guests were deeply impacted by our ceremony, not only because of our open and honest display of love as a couple, but because of the truths that Reverend Crystal spoke of love as it applies to every living soul. In a very simple and beautiful way, she allowed our family and friends to look at the person next to them with greater appreciation, understanding and depth. With Reverend Crystal at the helm, we were able to navigate this new journey a little easier, a little more clearly - with family and friends by our side in celebration. And this is just one love story out of many that she has blessed. I began to think that Reverend Crystal had a special gift for bringing the magic of our love story to life, but I know instead that she is that magic.

    If there is any one thing you hope to get perfectly right in this process, be sure to have Reverend Crystal in your life. - - Laura Rowland & Jayson Doty

    You only get one shot at choosing the right wedding officiant, and we are so happy that we chose Crystal. She was warm, and friendly. She was attentive to our wants and was able to customize the wedding to us personally. The service was light hearted, yet very personal and meaningful. Everyone attending remarked at what a wonderful job she did. We could not have been happier. Meeting Crystal was truly a blessing for us and we give her our highest recommendation.

    This is the most important part of the entire wedding process, and you want someone who will embrace who you are and celebrate that with family and friends. Crystal stayed true to the values that were important to my husband and I, and went above and beyond our expectations by adding in even more special touches that reflected our personalities. It was a simple and easy process which made planning the wedding so enjoyable!
