Review: Best officiante Ever!
05/08/2010
  • Inara F

  • She was so helpful in everything! Being in the military, preparing to deploy, she just about jumped through hoops to help us out. For one, three days before the wedding we had to reschedule and she was totally ok with it! Being military is hectic and our schedules never seemed quite right but she was always willing to work with us to get it all figured out.
  • She had many different marriage options, from the traditional religious to a personalized intimate ceremony. We chose the simple ceremony but it was so beautiful and meant so much.
  • We brought only those that people that we wanted there. There was a total of six of us at the wedding and that includes Celeste and the photographer. It was small and private and exactly what we wanted. We'll do the big ceremony for everyone else later! This one was for us!
  • My best friend didn't have to say anything. She seemed so happy and she almost started to cry! Which of course made me want to cry too!

Review: Just what we wanted!

  • Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Celeste made us very comfortable right from our first phone conversation. She really wanted to put together a ceremony that was right for us, and we both feel she succeeded beyond our expectations.
  • What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? She gave us a gift certificate to Celestial Creations, a gallery/specialty shop with all kinds of things made in New Mexico! It was our first wedding present after we were married.
  • How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? Actually, after asking us some questions, Celeste came up with a ceremony for us and emailed it to us, and we didn't change a word! Even the poem she chose seemed perfect for us. She definitely was willing to work with us on it, but we were pressed for time and what she did was great. She seems very intuitive.
  • Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? Our was an elopement, so Celeste even provided the two witnesses. But our friends and family all thought the photos she and her partner Chuck took were really good, and a great deal for what they charged.

Review: If you want the best get with Celeste

  • Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? My wife and I met Celeste prior to our marriage when she visited our Bed and Breakfast; we took an immediate likening to her. So when we decided to get married two years later we knew we wanted Celeste to do our ceremony
  • What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? The main reason we wanted Celeste to o the ceremony was due to the fact that we could make it as non-traditional and unconventional as we wanted. This is not to say she could not do a conventional wedding (i.e., in a church, minister, reverend religious based, etc) but at the age of 50 we wanted a ceremony outside, at our home, and with a ceremony completely different from the ordinary.
  • How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? I knew what I did not want for a ceremony, but I did not know what I really wanted. So Celeste was very helpful proposing different formats; we decided to do the sand blending and wine celebration . We also did not want a religious based ceremony but rather a secular humanist spirited approach. Celeste did a great job of proposing different ceremonial passages and allowing us to change it to our personalities. Celeste was very helpful in being able to do the ceremony at our home- some 140 miles from her home. In addition she helped overlook several of the wedding functions and would have clearly done more if needed. She was good at helping where needed and also respecting what we wanted to do ourselves.

Review: Perfect Non-Traditional Ceremony

  • Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Celeste was marvelous at our ceremony: She was dignified and respectful, and also full of joy and spirit. She was casual, as we had requested, and included all attendees with her gracious presence.
  • What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? Celeste prepared several prayers specifically for us, and ended with a variety of blessings from different traditions. She offered a sand-vase ceremony, representing to us our past, present, and future together. Everything was lovelier than we could have imagined.
  • How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? We wrote our own vows, created the music, and incorporated many faith traditions. It was a very personalized service.
  • Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? "The Holy Spirit was present and smiled upon you, with delight."
