Introduction: It's wonderful to be part of such a special moment. Call me a romantic, I believe in the spirit of love and the hope it represents. I have performed over 175 weddings, from small intimate weddings to venues with over 250 invited guests. Each one is Unique and SPECIAL. I will perform all weddings, vow renewal or commitment ceremonies. Proud supporter of LGBT community. I'm ordained solely for the purpose to perform weddings (I am not a preacher but I am spiritual); non denominational, Christian. Judgement free. My services are not my primary income so I'm able to provide quality professional services at a reasonable flat fee rate. **My fee is based on travel distance from my home ($150 - $250) not the size of the wedding. ** example: Ft Pierce beaches: $150 Please visit my website: weddingsbymsellie.com

Wedding Officiant

Ellie was great to work with! She helped me every step of the way with coordinating and writing the ceremony script. I loved the information packet she provided to help with determining readings, vows, and traditions. She was always responsive and punctual (even when I wasn't!). She was so friendly and easy-going that she blended in perfectly to our wedding plans and we were completely comfortable and happy to have her be our officiant for our special day!

Wedding Officiant

Ellie was the perfect choice to perform our wedding ceremony. We knew as soon as we finished our introductory call that she embodied the values of the officiant we wanted. She was warm, thoughtful, detailed, and values-driven. Our ceremony was secular (however, Ellie can also perform religious weddings, too) and the documents she provided before the wedding made for a seamless collaboration. We spent a few weeks ironing out the details of our story and her additions were beautifully written and heartfelt. She also submitted our documents quickly to town hall and we had our marriage license within a few days. All in all, she was wonderful to work with and invested in our day, which we truly appreciated. Thank you Ellie!

Wedding Officiant

My gosh...where do I start? Ms. Ellie was super helpful with getting our ceremony organized. We were a bit all over the place and had no idea as to the order of the ceremony or how things should work. Ms. Ellie was so helpful in organizing our wedding ceremony, using her questionnaire as a guide to help us figure out what we wanted. She also suggested a place for us to be married. I was so stressed out before finding Ms. Ellie. She put me at ease after our very first conversation. She was very responsive to any questions I had, was on time (actually early) the day of the ceremony, and led us through our ceremony with ease. She's such a calming presence. I was so grateful that I found her. Don't even think twice... book her!!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I have a flat fee based on travel distance from my residence (Wallingford) to officiate all weddings and vow renewal or commitment ceremonies. Fee's start at $125 for up to 10 miles travel distance. ** I offer a discount for fellow veterans and those still serving. Please be sure to let me know when you contact me** I don't charge extra for large venues or adding special ceremonies like Blending of the Sand; I do request that your ceremony starts within 15 minutes of the scheduled time out of courtesy to your guests and me.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I have a questionnaire that I forward to ensure the ceremony is tailored to each couples expectations. I am totally open to creating the wording to how ever you want, this is YOUR DAY. Once I create the wording, I share it in advance and encourage you to review and make any edits that you like. I don't require a pre-meeting, as I recognize that everyone is busy. However, I am more than willing to chat/text and meet if desired. Day of: I arrive 15 minutes in advance of the scheduled time to review the set-up; perform the ceremony and after the exchange of "I Do's", I file the license with the clerk.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have both an undergrad and graduate degree and have taught as an adjunct at the college level for more than 10 years. I am very comfortable with speaking in front of and to people. I am ordained solely to officiate weddings, through the Ministry of the Universal Life Church, nondenominational. I am an active member of a local church community and definitely judgement free.
