Introduction: CONGRATULATIONS! 😊 I'm very happy for your big news! 🎉🎉 YES! I would love to marry you! I can hardly wait to hear your vision for the day, and share some options and ideas with you to make your ceremony completely unique and memorable! WHAT IS INCLUDED IN A TYPICAL CEREMONY BY CRYSTAL PACKAGE? ❤ We will start with an introductory chat . . . a "chemistry check". ✔ What is your love story? I can't wait to hear it! It will help me get to know you a bit better and customize your ceremony. ✔ Then I will share with the two of you my philosophy of officiating to see if I am what you are looking for. "Heart and Humor" sums up my style. Also . . . my experience and confidence in public speaking will help you relax on your day. ✔ **I am no salesperson. 😊 You will not feel pressured to make a decision at the end of this call -- I let you think about it and get back to me. Your choice of officiant needs to be one that you are each comfortable with, so take your time. ❤ Next, and this is THE BIG ONE . . . We will schedule your very own, one-hour, WEDDING WORKSHOP! 🎉 It is my joy to watch couples go from unsure of what they want, to excited! We will cover all these questions and then some! ✔ Do you want a very simple ceremony, or an opportunity to completely customize something creative and unique? ✔ Can we do all Spanish? Or how about bilingual? ✔ What components in the ceremony are required by Florida law? ✔ What are the three options for doing our VOWS? ✔What are my options if I'm SUPER shy and terrified to say anything in front of the guests? ✔Are there ways to include our children in the ceremony? ✔What should we do with the rings? And how do we put them on each other? ✔Can we include a memorial to a dear one who has passed? ✔Do I have to have someone escort me down the aisle? "Give me away?" ✔Can we bring our dog? ✔What are the three options for a rehearsal? ✔Do we need witnesses? ✔What's the difference between the Marriage Application, Marriage License and Marriage Certificate? 😕 ✔When can I change my last name? ❤ After the Wedding Workshop, I will send you your very own CEREMONY KIT: ✔ A 76 page booklet of creative, symbolic, personalizable ceremony add-ons. Such as: Love Knot, Handfasting, Wine Box and Love Letters, Unity Candle, Sand Ceremony . . . . Pictures and shopping lists included. ✔ AND your very own customizable ceremony in a user-friendly format. Here is what one bride said about it: "Thank you! It was a great bonding moment, sitting down and figuring out what suited us best. So thank you gifting us that experience. I'm honestly surprised. I wasn't expecting how easy it was and how personalized we could make the ceremony." - Elizabeth & Josh I can't wait to marry you!

Karen R.

Wedding Officiant

Words can’t express how amazing Pastor Crystal was from beginning to end. She helped us plan everything and has amazing tools and resources for doing so. We had no plans when we first contacted her, and wound up with the most beautiful wedding on the beach. She is so much more than just an officiant. Highly highly recommended! I could only pick three of the above, but she was also very responsive and punctual. And so much fun!

Thank you so much Karen! It was a joy to hear your vision grow! And everything turned out so very beautifully! The ceremony, special decorating touches and the "mystery shell". LOL So sweet! I'm so glad for the elevator ride that brought you and Michael together! :) Many blessings for your Happily Ever After! ❤ Pastor Crystal

Crystal was AMAZING!!!!! We are so incredibly blessed to have found her to officiate our wedding. Not only was Crystal so sweet and professional to work with, but she put so much energy and time into ensuring that our special day was absolutely perfect!!!! Our guests could not stop talking about how wonderful our ceremony was and how it was the most authentic and heartfelt ceremony that they have been to! There was not a dry eye in the audience! Crystal made the ceremony process so meaningful to us and gave us so much guidance and ability to make the ceremony truly special to us. I cannot say enough about Crystal and would recommend her without any hesitation to anyone looking for the perfect touch to their wedding!!

Miss Crystal made our wedding experience the best it could possibly be! She worked with us the entire time and was very flexible with scheduling and venue changes. The ceremony was beautiful and tailored to fit our exact needs. She’s the best officiant hands down.

Pastor Crystal made our wedding romantic and fun . She lent her experience when creating our ceremony but ultimately left it up to my wife and I to choose the type of ceremony we wanted. Not only did we love pastor Crystal but all my guests absolutely loved her . So many of them came up to me during the wedding to ask me how I found her . All I know is our day would not have been as special as it was if we did not have pastor Crystal!!

Joseph! You're the sweetest! Thank you for all your kind words -- they touched my heart! :) I'm so very happy that you enjoyed the "customize your own wedding ceremony" method. I love it too because you get to choose what is right for YOU -- your style and personalities. And you and Krystal did a great job with your choices! It was beautiful! And we had fun, didn't we!? Congratulations to you both. Many, many blessings for your Happily Ever After! ❤ Pastor Crystal

FAQs

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

    Hello and Congratulations! Thank you for looking at my page. To be invited to officiate is something I view and treat as an honor! Writing ceremonies and officiating weddings is what I do full time. The attention you are going to get from me, the time I'm going to spend with you and on your ceremony will show on the wedding day!

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

    I would love to set up an introductory phone call! Let's see if we are a good fit. You don't have to know what to ask! haha! Most couples don't. (It's not like this is something you do every week, right?!) It will be my joy to walk you through the entire process. We'll talk about your story, your style and your vision for your wedding day. We will talk about the system I've designed to put all the choices in your hands for making the ceremony wording options. So far, 100% of my couples have raved about it! What about your marriage license? Rings? Flowers? . . . lot's of important information, AND some "good to know tips" that will help you feel relaxed and look good! Se habla español.

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

    My experience in front of crowds will help YOU relax on your big day, as that comes easy to me. Calm is contagious! I have been a minister and public speaker for decades. My experience in writing and TV production, will make your ceremony completely unique! Your story, your personality, your style. My experience teaching at a local university and working with college students means . . . we are going to have FUN! My experience as a minister means I already love you! :) It's just in my DNA to love people. I'm pretty sure that's where my nickname "Pastor Mom" comes from.
