Romantic summer wedding“Alex and I had an amazing day. We both agree that the highlight of our night was you. We have been obsessing over everything all day. You wowed every single guest and everyone agrees they’ve never heard anything better! It was amazing. We will never forget it.”

“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.”  – Laura & Jayson


August recommendation“Crystal was amazing. She took time to get to know us and tailored the ceremony to our life perfectly. Our backup plan was to go with an ordained family member, but we are so happy we went with a professional instead. She made the whole process of getting married so easy, and we loved every second of the ceremony.” Nicole and Sam

“Crystal did an amazing job officiating our wedding. She kept in contact with us throughout the entire planning process and answered any and all questions we had. We were able to be creative and personalize our ceremony as promised. She also incorporated humor which was a lot of fun for us! We couldn’t have picked a better officiate to marry us!” Alexis and Stephen

From Stephanie Wiitala, S2S Sunrise 2 Sunset Events
Owner/Wedding Management specialist:

“I am a wedding and events manager in Traverse City and I have been working with Crystal for over five years now. 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 officiants 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.”
