Gratitudes & Recommendations

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 Foxhill Event Center wedding of Jason and Lauraapplies 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 & Jayson

Here are the reasons Mike and I chose you to perform our ceremony..

  • Choices for personalizing your ceremony – LOVED this part! It was really nice to personalize and make our ceremony unique and special to our relationship.
  • Being seminary ordained – nice because we were not married in a church and that was still important to us
  • How friendly and charming Rev. Crystal was when we talked (lol!!) – truly, we did love your warm personality and the connection we had when we met you
  • Dog/cat/animal connection – nice touch

Here’s what others have to say about Reverend Crystal:

…We got to know you so well over the course of our planning that having you there added a dimension of comfort to the process that I wasn’t actually anticipating.  We’ve gotten so many compliments from our wedding guests about how great you were and how nice the ceremony was…If we were to get married 100 times, I would make sure we involved you as our officiant 100 times. Lots of Love, Pam and Justin

“We really cannot begin to thank you enough for officiating our wedding. We felt that the ceremony was so full of love, Dan and myself, and orchestrated perfectly. We appreciate your time, care, and expertise through everything. We will continue to cherish our wedding forever. Much love, Dan and Jacque”

From Stephanie Wiitala, S2S Sunrise 2 Sunset Events

“I am a wedding and events manager in Traverse City and I have been working with Crystal for over five years now and we have teamed up for many weddings. Whenever we work together and my couple tells me they have hired Crystal to do their officiating I know the ceremony is going to be amazing. I have worked with over 200 couples and so you can imagine that I meet lots of vendors and officiant along the way. Crystal stands out as one of the best I have ever worked with because of many reasons but here are the ones that matter to me the most:

“She is a great communicator and I appreciate that her and I can collaborate on the ceremony plans and trust that we are on the same page to deliver the best service for our couples.

“She is prompt and always arrives just a little bit early which I think is very important for us to be able to start rehearsals and ceremonies on time.

“She is a very loving and caring and very professional. She takes her services very seriously and it’s easy to see that she will do whatever it takes to make sure that her couples experience is the best. This is important because the commitment of marriage is one of the most important moments in a persons life. Having someone who understands the importance of your moment performing your ceremony I think is what every couple should be using to qualify who they work with as their officiate.”
