Congratulations – You Found Your Soulmate!

"Whatever souls are made of, yours and mine are the same." – Emily Bronte
Whether spiritual or secular, formal or informal, traditional or non-traditional, a custom-created ceremony reflects your personal values, beliefs, and personalities. In collaboration with you, I create ceremonies affirming your love, while acknowledging, honoring, and respecting different religions (or none), cultures, customs, and traditions as you wish. I also create contemporary and relevant interpretations for traditional rituals. Living in the greater Chicagoland area, I am willing to travel within the Midwest. 

I create and officiate ceremonies that are:

* Non-religious/secular
* Nondenominational
* Vow renewals
* Same Sex
* Interfaith
* Jewish
* Multi-Cultural

Our whole experience with Michele was just amazing, she did a great job. The ceremony was our favorite part of the whole night, it was so personal. It felt as we knew Michele our whole life and I think our guests felt the same. She did an awesome job telling our love story. Working with her was very easy and stress free. We love Michele !!
Michelle was fantastic! My husband and I wanted a non-traditional ceremony and Michelle had so many wonderful ideas. Friends and family loved our ceremony and commented over and over about how personal and truly unique it was. Michelle was excellent from start to finish, even helping us determine what feel we wanted. Her use of a pre-writing survey allowed us to tell our story throughout the ceremony. The best part is that we knew our ceremony was written for us, by a very special person who gave us her full attention. I would recommend Michelle Rose over and over and over again!
Working with Michelle was an absolute dream. We had some pretty weird extenuating circumstances for our wedding, my fiance was living in Canada and unable to attend the prep sessions with her, and we ended up getting married on the weekend of the NATO summit in Chicago so there were protesters walking through the park where we got married. Michelle not only made us feel like what we wanted was not just valid but important and that we could make this wedding really special. I would not only recommend her to anyone who is interested in working with a celebrant, but would consider having her help us renew our vows in a few years! She’s just the best!!
