It takes a lot of time, reflection and care to craft a love story, and even more so if it’s not your own. We still can’t believe how perfect Celeste’s officiating was. When my wife and I were looking for someone to perform at our wedding ceremo...
ny we wanted to make sure that the person we chose was genuine and able to convey the message of love in a fun and exciting way. We were especially nervous because we had such a mix of people attending (religious, non religious, and lgbt folks) that we wanted to make sure that everyone at the wedding felt comfortable. Celeste was warm and welcoming and we were immediately at ease talking to her on our 1st call.
A few months before the big day, Celeste sent each of us a questionnaire relating to our relationship. The questions encouraged us to reflect on our journey as a couple and our hopes for the future. Honestly, it was great, it helped us write our own vows! Celeste asked us not to share our answers because she offered the service of writing “our love story” by bridging both of our answers together. Its definitely been a fun little activity to read each others answers post - wedding.
Just as we were impressed with the thoughtfulness of her questions during our initial conversation, we were blown away by the delivery the day of the wedding. What we wanted most out of our wedding was to show our true selves to our friends and families: our quirks, our experiences and our relationship. Celeste was able to convey our relationship through words with grace and humor, and left many of our guests in tears - including my wife’s Dad who rarely cries.
On top of all of this, Celeste is also an incredibly talented singer. After the ceremony, our guests were treated to a live performance while we left for wedding pictures. She sang for about an hour and a half and many of our family and friends kept coming up to us during the reception and mentioning how amazing her singing was!
It takes a lot of trust to give someone such an important role for your wedding day, and we couldn’t recommend a better person to do it than Celeste. Thank you for helping to make our dream day come true! Jess & Dora
