I was raised Catholic. I went to Sunday school. I went to church, the later the better. I even went to all girl’s Catholic high school. I led the choir in song every First Friday of the month. I was raised with religion and I always dreamed of it being a part of my wedding day. I wanted to walk down the aisle of a beautiful church with stained glass windows and incense burning, with a fun-loving priest giving joyous blessings to this everlasting love that my husband and I shared.
This was not how it all went down. And I couldn’t be happier about it.
Celia Milton is brilliant. Truly brilliant, balls to the walls clever, and full of awesome creativity. I have never met anyone like her. She is my wedding officiant mentor in every sense of the word. She is the reason I am a wedding officiant; she advised me on how to write a beautiful ceremony for people and taught me the ins and outs of this awesome side gig. I’m so thrilled that I work with her but even more honored that she officiated over our own wedding. I had to share her awesome blog she wrote. In general I have to share it because again, brilliant.
