WOW! Kayelily is seriously the BEST. My fiancé and I were not sure where to go for a reverend/officiant for a wedding. Our wedding planner recommended Kayelily and just be reading her website, we were hooked! Our initial meeting with her was perfect. She lets you do ANYTHING you... Read More want. Like she says, "You control the bus, I just make sure we get there!" You can be as original or as creative as you like.

Our guests loved our ceremony and told us how much they loved the personalization to it. Kayelily is absolutely the best and most wonderful.

Kayelily puts on an amazing ceremony & does it with a great attitude.

WOW! WOW! WOW! We loved Kayelily. My husband and I is new to Raleigh, NC and we reached out to or wedding planner who suggested a few ministers to perform the wedding. I left the decision up to my husband to decide. He did his research but their was something he liked about... Read More Kayelily's bio that he like. So we made and appointment and met with her. I knew exactly why he liked her. She was so warm and inviting. She offered everything that we wanted in a ceremony-SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

It was unique and different. It truly brought both or families together. My husband and I will be doing a recommencement ceremony every anniversary and we will continue to ask Kayelily to perform the ceremony. Whether it be a party of 2 or a party of 200 she will be the one performing the ceremony. She truly puts her heart and soul into what the bride and groom want for their special day.

We couldn't have made it through our wedding ceremony without Kayelily. This was the second marriage for both of us and 5 teenagers and young adults involved. Kayelily helped guide us through having the most meaningful, tearful, joyous and memorable event of our lives.... Read More Kayelily spoke about us in a way that it felt like she had known us and our family forever.

I would recommend Kayelily Middleton if you want one of the best wedding ceremonies ever. If your nervous she calms you, if you cry she helps you with your tears and turns them into laughter. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. And, again I will say we couldn't have made it without you......

Kayelily is fantastic, and I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. We wanted a secular ceremony because my husband's family is Jewish and mine is not. Kayelily was incredibly accommodating and flexible and helped us craft the perfect ceremony that was... Read More non-religious and incredibly personal and meaningful. We met with Kayelily in advance of the wedding, and she read us a sample ceremony. It made me cry because it was so beautiful. Kayelily let us personalize our ceremony a great deal. We wrote a long passage about how we met that she included. We also each separately wrote and sent her a passage on why we love one another, which she kept private until the actual ceremony. She included a section honoring and thanking our parents that we know they loved. I cried throughout the ceremony, and my husband shed some tears as well. Our parents were definitely crying as were many others in attendance. The ceremony was touching, moving, and also appropriately light and humorous at a couple points. I think I must have surprised her with all my crying, but she rolled with it and made sure we were all in sync. Overall, it was the perfect ceremony we were hoping for that pleased everyone in attendance. On the logistics side, Kayelily was so helpful and flexible throughout the entire process. We initially wanted to have a private ceremony for about 10 people in the morning, and we ended up changing that to about 40 people in the evening, which Kayelily effortlessly accommodated. Kayelily comes across as a very sweet person, and her speaking voice is calm and soothing and has a rich Southern charm to it that added to the character of the experience (we are transplants to the area!). Overall I cannot say enough positive things about Kayelily. Thank you for making our day perfect!

The KEY to your wedding is the ceremony. Your wedding day begins with your guests gathered around you witnessing your wedding ceremony which sets the tone for the rest of the celebration. We are a network of non-denominational ordained ministers spread across North Carolina. We share a collective website (AWeddingMInister.com) where you can find the area of your wedding and click through to that minister's information and contact. Or you can send an inquiry from The Knot and I will direct you to the right officiant!
