Benefits of Working with Rev. Crystal Yarlott

Rev. Crystal Yarlott is a non-denominational minister. She was ordained in 1989 by Unity Institute. She’s been the wedding officiant for over 550 happy couples.

“Freedom comes by respecting all spiritual traditions. Everyone has the right to be spiritually supported, regardless of past or present religious affiliation.

“I retired from leading Unity of Traverse City in November of 2011. Since then I’ve focused on creating memorable ceremonies.

“Helping couples enter their marriage not only happy about being together but being with others. There’s also an optional relationship coaching program. Here couples can develop greater understanding and skills to communicate and relate through the ups and downs that are normal to any relationship. The Spiritual Relationship program is awesome!”
