Meet Byron Bay’s top wedding celebrants

Selecting your celebrant is one of the hardest suppliers to choose when planning your wedding day. It’s important to find someone who really resonates with you both so you feel relaxed throughout your ceremony. And it’s just as important to make your guests feel comfortable and entertained throughout the process. We’ve saved you the legwork and interviewed Byron’s top love aficionados to help you lock down the ideal wedding celebrant for your special day. Read on!

What is your style as a wedding celebrant?

Skai Ceremonies
I find the ‘spark’ in a couple’s journey, illuminating this with my melodic storytelling style. The tale of how you found one another is an evolving love riddle to be shared. I love unearthing the gold nuggets of your story, bringing your guests to laughter and tears.

At Skai Ceremonies I bring an effortless sense of ease, connection, and calm. It’s my ability to entwine this with my moving and persuasive expression that creates a glow, leaving you and your guests thinking I am an old friend of yours and theirs.

“No words can describe how happy and enchanted with Skai we were.” Tania + Mitch. Figtree

Marry Me Dean
My style is a combination of your favourite armchair. All soft and cozy and the best night out you and your friend ever had. I never forget that we are celebrating the very best of you. I like to keep it real and I like to smile – a lot.

I love the moments when we can be a bit cheeky and have a laugh, but I take care to keep the humour natural and elegant. If you want a happy, friendly, joyous day with sincerity – that’s me. It’s my job to set the stage, not steal the show. It’s your time to shine and this moment is about sharing your unique love.

Married by Kath
I’m definitely known for my relaxed and friendly style. I love keeping everything fun and laid back but still including a beautiful sense of intimacy. With Married by Kath, I’m super organised, ready to listen, fun and easy-going. I love what I do and truly believe that a great wedding ceremony helps set the tone for your whole day.

Married by Kath

Modern Love Celebrants
My style as a marriage celebrant is very relaxed and friendly.
I do what I can to help my couple feel comfortable and at ease with me; that way it’s easy for them to share their history, along with the reasons that they love each other and what their hopes and dreams are.

I have a background in public speaking and I’m also a voice-over artist, so I have lots of experience to perform a very professional ceremony (with a killer PA system too), but it’s all still very relaxed, personable and fun. And after a decade of writing ceremonies, I’ve got that down to a fine art too.

Heidi Robertson
Heidi Robertson loves a good TED talk; and to me, the ones that are most engaging are those where the speaker is able to hold interest by being genuine; by using real, not scripted language; by using appropriate tone and inflection; by using eye contact; and most importantly, where it’s evident that they have a passion for what they are doing!

I prepare the ceremony by writing it in full after putting a lot of time and love into it, but on the day, I just have the key points in front of me and focus on delivering your ceremony with meaning, significance and engagement.

Heidi Robertson

Andrew Michael
I’m friendly, warm and fun! Think of me as your professional best friend who will help you achieve your wedding day goals by kicking off the day in style.  Naturally, I have a calm, cool and friendly nature and a knack of connecting with people and keeping ceremonies flowing smoothly and free of all that awkward stuff. I’d like to think that my ceremonies unfold like a naturally occurring conversation with your family and friends. I like to speak to your guests and engage them with their emotions and memories as much as possible too.

Ben Carlyle
I am all about engaging your crowd, killing the nervous vibes and helping you both stay grounded in your experience. A celebrant who listens to my couples’ language, sense of humour, sense of romance and delivers a ceremony to please all in attendance! I definitely don’t do boring. We’ve all been to crap ceremonies that are memorable for all the wrong reasons. I think your adventure into marriage is really epic and I want to celebrate this moment with your VIPs. I bring a professional, yet relaxed vibe to your ceremony and am honoured to do this as my full-time gig

Ben Carlyle

Susie Figgis
My style is relaxed and earthy. I’ll match the vibe you want to create and represent your love story in a way that feels perfectly aligned with you. I see myself as a warm and welcoming presence, helping you and your guests drop into the moment with a wonderful sense of ceremony. There is usually a healthy splash of fun and laughter as well.

I love reverent magical ceremonies, and equally love working with couples who want to keep it simple, light-hearted and fun. Whatever the flavour, Susie Figgis ceremonies really ring true for couples and their tribe. I won’t steal your limelight, but I will absolutely shine the light on your love.

Michelle Shannon
Easy going and warm-hearted – I like to make the couple and guests feel as relaxed as possible on the day.  I give my couple the freedom and connection to be who they are and help create their unique story. I get as excited about their wedding day as they do – and after 12 years that is saying something!

Michelle Shannon

Katrina Holt Wonderlove
I have married hundreds of loved-up couples, creating warm, relaxed and authentic ceremonies. With me as your celebrant, you’re going to relax, you’re going to smile (and laugh), there’s a good chance you may even shed a few happy tears, and when you glance out at your guests, you will see moments of pure connection.

I am a big advocate of you doing things your way, and my couples often comment on how easy the whole process is and how my laid-back approach means the journey is stress-free and relaxed, just as it should be!

Katrina Holt Wonderlove | GoldBear Wedding Films

Kirsty Ella – Heart n Soul Ceremonies
My own personal style has been described as warm, cheerful, romantic and relaxed! I love to have a bit of fun and get creative with your ceremony so that we represent YOU as a couple and tell YOUR story. I’m not scared of incorporating rituals, or paddling out to marry you at sunrise on a surfboard – if that will create your dream ceremony! I’m told that my big smile and peaceful energy always helps (the awesome couples I marry), to remain calm and really enjoy the beginning of their wedding day.

Kirsty Ella – Heart n Soul Ceremonies

Chiquita Mitchell
I do as much as I can for the couple, completely aware that even though most people have been to one or two weddings, they don’t often understand the structure or detail involved in the ceremony. I write and disclose the full script, giving the couple full control over their ceremony.

The Chiquita Mitchell signature style is “simple, elegant ceremonies, with a warm, relaxed delivery.” Every ceremony is bespoke. With 13 years of experience as a Byron celebrant, the former P.A. to Sir Bob Geldof, and an assistant director on a feature film, I’m professional and comfortable with the care required to be a celebrant.

Chiquita Mitchell

How do you make a ceremony as personal as possible? What’s your personal touch? 

Skai Ceremonies
Crafting a bespoke ceremony is at the top of my agenda. Apart from sharing all the goodies people love to hear, you get to relish in every word I say. My sprinkle of originality is bringing you and your guests to a place of stillness; weaving energy that draws everyone in.

My melodic style creates a mood where your guests are held in that moment, not only listening but experiencing the ceremony. It’s an absolute pleasure to see their emotions as they react to an unexpected play on words with reverence to the beauty of your love riddle.

Skai Ceremonies
Skai Ceremonies

Marry Me Dean
This is the part that I love. It’s your ceremony and it’s about sharing your story and what makes you tick as a couple. It’s not about a list what you have done or achieved.

It is about moments and connection, your hopes and dreams that tell a story about you as a couple. I love working with my couple to uncover the gold in their relationship to help build a ceremony that is real and authentic.

Married by Kath
I work closely with my couples to get to know them and their love story. I use questionnaires to get all their thoughts and ideas around love and marriage – finding out what it is that they really love about one another and what their hopes and dreams are for their future. I offer choices in wording so they can find the words that resonate best with them. I listen and I guide, encouraging my couples to have as much input as they want, and together we create a ceremony that is personal and unique for them.

Modern Love Ceremonies
As humans, we connect to stories.
I look at each individual ceremony as a story, which has a beginning, a middle and an end – I find the hook for my couple’s story and I narrate it.
I often get comments that the guests thought I was a good friend of the couples, yet I never try to make it seem that way. I just do my research, find out what makes them tick, then represent my couple as who their guests know them to be. I don’t make stuff up, of course, I might leave stuff out, but I just highlight everything that is wonderful about my couple.

Modern Love Ceremonies

Heidi Robertson
A personal touch is what makes a ceremony fabulous; otherwise, it is just a series of generic words put together that aren’t genuine and true to the couple, on one of the most significant and transformational days of their lives! It starts with me really listening to you and your story. Maybe over a cup of coffee. Or video/ phone calls. Or me sending you out a bunch of questions you can answer in your own time. Then I can shape the ceremony in a way that illuminates the essence of who you are as a couple embarking on a great adventure together!

Andrew Michael
My ceremonies are made personalised by real-life storytelling and connection. I need to connect with my couple. Learning about their journey and time together is crucial so I like to hang out and chat. My couples need to feel comfortable and at ease with me, so they can tell me about their lives together.

Face to face catch ups are important to Andrew Michael Marriage Celebrants but if that’s too hard due to interstate travel then I like to Facetime or Skype and I dig a little deeper with a super fun questionnaire. I use language that speaks to the heart and resonates deeply with my couples.

Andrew Michael

Ben Carlyle
Every ceremony I deliver is custom to my couples experience. I think that it’s incredible 2 humans can fall in love, out of the billions of humans on planet earth, so surely your unique ‘love story’ is worthy of re-telling. I meet with my couples and we chat about their adventure together and I take enough notes, and ask enough questions to get the ball rolling in the planning of your ceremony. It’s also in the delivery where I know your story well enough to glance at my notes and not read word for word, that the personal connection shines.

Susie Figgis
Marriage means different things to everyone, so its about our journey of connection before the wedding, I love learning what makes you tick, what you love about each other, your hopes, humour, and future dreams. I do verbally and through a love story questionnaire.  Then I weave it together in a writing process that doesn’t stop until it’s perfect for you.
One value I encourage is a sense of realism, rather than idealism. I think this is a way to acknowledge the ‘humanness’ in all of us, and not set up an expectation of perfection in marriage. After all, love in all its magnificence, will always ebb and flow.

Susie Figgis

Michelle Shannon
I make it easy as our lives are busy and meet up either in person or via Skype. Then I send a few easy and personal questions to get to know them.  When I write their ceremony I’m truly speaking of their love for each other instead of using a verse from a random website or book. 

Other little touches I encourage: I love them to be close to each other, the freedom to go with their emotions and feelings, embrace their wishes and ideas and if other people are involved we work through it until they are completely happy. The couple has total control over the ceremony looks and feels, and I rarely change much from the first draft as they always say that it’s on point.

Katrina Holt Wonderlove
All of my ceremonies are bespoke and written especially for each couple, which means getting to know your unique story, discovering the ceremony ideas you love and the beautiful details that make your love so special. 

You can be sure your ceremony will be engaging, captivating, completely unforgettable and the highlight of your day.

Katrina Holt Wonderlove

Kirsty Ella – Heart n Soul Ceremonies
Every ceremony is personally crafted to suit YOUR individual personalities and desires – no cookie cutters here!I’m open to any ideas you may have and up for (pretty much) anything to create your dream ceremony!

I’ve married couples at sunrise on surfboards, alongside waterfalls, in backyards and local halls, and of course at some of Byron’s finest wedding venues. I’m currently trying to ‘manifest’ a hot air balloon ceremony. Any takers!?

Kirsty Ella – Heart n Soul Ceremonies

Chiquita Mitchell
I believe the marriage celebrant’s role is to let your guests know it’s a day to get swept away in the celebration. After a planning session, the couple receives their draft script and it changes hands between us until the couple are almost as in love with the script as they are with each other. This collaboration ensures the ceremony is personal to them and suits their wishes and vision for their day.

I am passionate about language and words, which is why I have been a celebrant for more than a decade! I truly get so much joy in both writing and speaking well.

Chiquita Mitchell

Do you assist with writing the wedding vows?

Skai Ceremonies
Yes. It’s your decision to include vows in your ceremony; expressing your truths to one another publicly, can bring mixed emotions. When writing vows, my advice is to bring your personality, open your heart, be honest and the words will flow.

To get your creative writing juices rolling, I offer 30 vow examples, providing mixed approaches. I can help finesse your vows draft if you wish. I can also discuss alternatives to personal vows – not everyone is up to sharing their most inner feelings publicly.

“Skai had endless professionalism, patience and genuine personal touches to our ceremony.” Jodie + Brett. Figtree.

Marry Me Dean
Vows can be the highlight of the ceremony. This is the moment that you lay it on the line before the one you love and those who are most important to you. It can also be a little confronting as well. Should they be serious, or should they be funny? Should they be formal, or should they be relaxed?

Well, they are your vows so they should be how you want them to be. Marry Me Dean offers resources to assist, plus I’m only a phone call away. Generally, I suggest to my couples “don’t overthink it”. You have done the heavy lifting, you have found each other!

Marry Me Dean | Alex Cohen Photography

Married by Kath
Absolutely. Sometimes couples come in and they’re all “Hell yeah, we’re all good to write our own vows” and then other times it scared the socks off people. Personally, I’m a big fan of writing your own vows, it’s like the sweet spot in the ceremony. So over the years I have put together a quick “How To” guide for my couples, which is a great tool to assist them to put together a meaningful and personal wedding vow. If they’re completely stuck I also have a set of “Go-To” vows which means we have all the bases covered.

Married by Kath

Modern Love Ceremonies
At Modern Love Ceremonies, I give my couples resources to write their weddings vows, and some coaching if they are having trouble. In most cases, I just tell people to stop overthinking it, don’t try to write in cliches, just write a love letter that covers three subheadings:
1. I love you because…
2. I want us to have this life together…
3. I promise to do this, this and this to ensure we get that life.

If you follow those steps your vows will be authentic and true to your heart.

Heidi Robertson
Sure! I’ll offer guidance with both the writing and delivery aspects, and you can take as much or as little of it as needed. I have a vow writing guide I can send you, and if you are very nervous I can offer some helpful, practical tips on how to mentally prepare. Vows are a highly personal thing – I can help you get confident in writing them from your heart, in your own words. I’ll get you to email me your vows prior and I’ll have them on me so you don’t have to worry about carrying them on the day.

Heidi Robertson

Andrew Michael
Wedding vows are really special. Its that time in your life when you get to read that love letter to your favourite person. Helping write vows is a huge part of my job and I love it. I have a few coaching tools and tips which are linked to my website. Generally, my biggest tip is to speak from the heart and start with something amazing about everyday life that you love with your bestie. As the writing process unfolds, I provide further guidance with timings and structure but I find that once you put pen to paper and write as you speak, it all comes naturally.

Andrew Michael

Ben Carlyle
“Where the hell do I start Ben?! I’m freaking out!” That might be because you’ve heard terrible vows at other weddings. I supply all of my couples with a gem of a document; which includes pointers, tips and some awesome examples! I get my couples to send through their vows if they’re keeping them a surprise and offer them advice on how they stack up against each other.

With Benjamin Carlyle Celebrant I offer some practical advice on how to add more content or bring a similar vibe to your words of love and devotion. I also print out your vows to read from in the ceremony.

Susie Figgis
I guide you through a brainstorming process to help you clarify the life you want to share, then ask you to list the things to promise each other to have this life together.  My advice is to keep vows authentic and true to your unique personalities and relationship, don’t use clichés.

I supply examples to get your creative juices flowing, and then encourage you to embrace your vows as a useful blueprint for your life together. When it comes to the ceremony itself, I support you. This usually involves a hand, heart eye connection between you both, with me prompting your vows (off mic). In my experience, this works better than asking you to juggle a vow card and microphone with all the emotion happening in the moment.

Susie Figgis

Michelle Shannon
Yes, I give as much guidance as a couple wants and I’ve collected some amazing examples to guide them in the right direction.  I always say, be yourself, don’t try to be a poet, just be real – we discuss this as we go and I am always there any time to help out.

Feedback for Michelle Shannon: “Hi Michelle, I honestly don’t know how to thank you enough for literally making our wedding the most special day of our lives ever. The ceremony was truly the most special part and I want to live in that moment eternally!’ Chris and Brie xx

Writing your own vows doesn’t have to be overwhelming. I’ve put together the Katrina Holt Wonderlove top vow writing tips for expressing your love in a way that works for you, and I provide my couples with plenty of examples and inspiration!

Katrina Holt Wonderlove

Kirsty Ella – Heart n Soul Ceremonies
Yes of course! Your wedding vows can easily be the highlight of your ceremony (if you want them to be.) I always offer ideas, examples and guidance for personal wedding vow writing. Another thing I love to do is encourage couples to keep their vows a surprise from one another until the ceremony – but of course, this is up to each couple to decide!  

My advice in writing your vows – is to keep it real. Treat your vows like you’re writing your partner a letter (or email/text etc.) and perhaps choose to use words you’re comfortable/familiar with. 

Chiquita Mitchell
I supply a huge array of vows that I’ve written that the couple can choose, and take inspo from. I also provide tips on how to write your vows, and then ask that both parties email me their vows (privately from their partner) and I provide feedback. Sometimes there are no changes, sometimes I receive a brainstorm of ideas so I make them flow or rework things so they flow.

Chiquita Mitchell

Does your service offer ceremony rehearsals? 

Skai Ceremonies
Yes. Your rehearsal provides lots of hints and tips for your big day, planting many ‘seeds’ you can draw on throughout your ceremony.  This is an opportunity to sit down and chat about significant parts of your ceremony, followed by a little ‘walk through’ with you and your bridal party. If you prefer, we can have a Zoom chat instead (not at the venue).

“Skai created an unforgettable “parent recognition” ritual I will ALWAYS be in awe of.” Jodie & Brett. Figtree

Skai Ceremonies

Marry Me Dean
Absolutely! It is so important that you feel confident about how your day is going to unfold. My ceremonies are all about being heartfelt, not so much about where you are meant to stand. I don’t think anyone wants your ceremony to be like an over-rehearsed play, but you do need to feel like you know what to do and when to do it.

I offer my couples a run-through of the ceremony the week before the wedding.  This allows you to be relaxed and to concentrate on more important things, like nailing your dance moves for the after-party!

Married by Kath
My service definitely includes a rehearsal, on-site, within the local area. Rehearsals, whilst not mandatory, are a great way to calm any last-minute nerves or anxiety around what’s going to happen on the day. We go over where you stand, where you enter from, where we will sign the paperwork, and how you will be exiting the ceremony space. I don’t do a word for word run through, you want to save those words and those feelings for the day. It’s also a great chance to sign all the final paperwork and sight any documents that might still need to be sighted. 

Married by Kath

Modern Love Ceremonies
Yes, if the couple wants one and I’m available. If the wedding is outside of the Byron region I charge a travel fee to attend a rehearsal, which will be subject to availability. Often people will choose not to have one, but I generally like to at least have a meeting with my couple in the week leading up to the wedding to make sure we’re on the same page, to build rapport and to get their signatures on a declaration that needs to be signed before the big day.

Heidi Robertson
Absolutely, although not mandatory!  If your wedding is going to be outdoors, it’s good to organise the rehearsal at the same time of day and if possible, the same place you are planning to marry. That way we can see the angle of the sun, tides if relevant, the timing of processional song with where the bridal party will be walking from, etc. All of this can also take some of the anxiety out of the big day. I don’t read out the ceremony and the couple don’t say their vows during the rehearsal – that would spoil the big event! It’s more about logistics.

Andrew Michael
Yes, I offer rehearsals. My goal is to provide a stress-free, smooth and fun-filled service. Rehearsals often provide that last-minute reassurance to the couple and allow us that last chance to connect again before the wedding day. Wedding ceremonies can be a totally new experience and bring about new and uncharted emotions for some couples. A ceremony rehearsal might be just what you need to sail through your wedding ceremony effortlessly. 

Andrew Michael

Ben Carlyle
Yes, I offer a rehearsal for my couples. We don’t sit there and word for word go through the ceremony but it’s all about making you feel comfortable and catching up in person. It’s a good chance for me to go through your legal paperwork, check it’s all in order and make sure we’re all lined up to kick the goals to make you a married couple. Not all couples have a rehearsal and their ceremonies still rock just as hard! Also, be mindful not to bring too many additional humans to your rehearsal, as it can be quite distracting for you both.  

Susie Figgis
Yes if you want one. Many of my couples are from interstate or overseas, so it’s often our first chance to meet in person and deepen our rapport.

Whether we do a full-blown rehearsal at the venue or a simple walkthrough at a coffee meeting in the leadup, it’s good to run through the ceremony flow so you both know exactly what’s going to happen. It’s also a great chance to sign any final paperwork and sight any documents.

Michelle Shannon
Yes, I always do a rehearsal.  I like the couple to look over the legal paperwork the day before as well as say hello if we have never met, check out the venue and weather and walk through the ceremony. It really does help on many levels for their upcoming day and for those wedding day nerves.

Michelle Shannon | YellowBull Media

Katrina Holt Wonderlove
Absolutely. I love catching up with my couples a day or two before their wedding at the ceremony location. My rehearsals are really relaxed, I describe it as more of a walk/talk through from start to finish so that we can calm any nerves and make sure everything is smooth sailing on the day.

Kirsty Ella – Heart n Soul Ceremonies
Yes – I always offer a rehearsal at Kirsty Ella – Heart n Soul Ceremonies. For you, standing in the space where you begin your marriage, (and kick start the wedding that you’ve most likely been planning for months or maybe years!?) can often be quite an intense moment. A quick rehearsal can help you feel SO much more relaxed and comfortable when it’s ceremony time. They are also a lovely opportunity for us to catch up one last time in person which will again help to make you feel more relaxed. Whenever possible, we will meet at the venue for your rehearsal.

Chiquita Mitchell
Yes, I offer rehearsals, though most couples prefer not to rehearse, as they want the day to feel genuinely spontaneous! I encourage rehearsals if there are unusual aspects in the ceremony such as young children, complex ceremonial inclusions, or if the couple is overly nervous. In these cases, a rehearsal can calm things down for the day, as it takes away that ‘fear of the unknown’.

Experienced celebrants can guide, support, and prompt so that a rehearsal isn’t necessary. This is especially true when you also have Byron Bay Weddings dream team also on board!

Chiquita Mitchell

Are you LGBT-friendly?

Skai Ceremonies
Yes, yes, yes!!  I have married several couples who have waited SO long to be rightfully married. I’m here in every way to make your wedding feel just right for you. There was so much love and excitement in my LGBT weddings, I would love many more couples to come my way. So please don’t hesitate to contact me.

“Your joy and delight in doing the ceremony and spiritual sense of peace that you gave the group will stay with us forever.” Mrs & Mrs Zulberg aka Catherine & Michelle. Beach.
You have a natural talent for reading people.” Kayley + Kyle. The Farm

Marry Me Dean
The great thing is I just love, love. How cheesy does that sound?! But it’s true. If there is one thing that excites me, it is that each one of us has the opportunity to love. Are there different levels of love? No. Love is love. Love wins and it is everybody’s right to have that experience. I am passionate about the fact that everyone can get married, and I am delighted to be able to marry all couples who are crazy in love with each other.

Married by Kath
That’s a huge “YES” from me!! I’ve been a huge advocate for marriage equality for many years now and was definitely doing my own “happy dance” when it got across the line in December 2017. When creating ceremonies for my LGBTQI couples, I always check in with them as to the terminology that they want to be used in their ceremony as everyone has their own feelings on this side of things i.e. wife and wife, partners for life or Mr and Mr. It’s your day, your marriage, and my job is to celebrate that moment in a way that is perfect for you. 

Modern Love Ceremonies
100% – I believe all couples deserve the best service I can give them, regardless of their gender.

Modern Love Ceremonies | Cedar and Salt Photography

Heidi Robertson
I’m a generally quiet and down-to-earth person with a love for dogs and babies (may or may not be in that order) and a strong sense of social justice. So the answer to this is a resounding yes. I would like to see equality for everyone regardless of sex, gender identification or ethnicity. Marriage equality was a great start. 

Andrew Michael
Yes. 100%. #loveislove

Ben Carlyle
Yesssss! Hella Yesssss! I’ve been a massive advocate of this change in Australia and I am so thankful to be booking and facilitating weddings with LGBT couples. To me, we’re just all ‘humans in love’, regardless of our gender and sexuality. My same-sex couples are literally the same as my husband and wife couples, the process is exactly the same. It feels very gratifying to have been saying that “Marriage, according to the law in Australia, is the union of two people” for nearly 1.5 years now! Bring on the exciting adventure ahead!

Susie Figgis
Absobloodlylutely! With bells on. It’s about time! LGBT weddings seem to carry an extra level of intensity, which I just love!

My first queer couple are now the proud new parents of an adopted child, and I literally cried when they sent me the photo.  I am moved by how long some couples have had to wait to tie their official knot… and I’m super excited to work with more.

Susie Figgis

Michelle Shannon
Totally – Absolutely – 100% – Everyone has the right to loved and happy in my world.

Katrina Holt Wonderlove
I’m a huge supporter of Marriage Equality; it’s an awesome time to be celebrating love with all kinds of couples.

Some words from my newlywed brides, Ash & Amber:
“Katrina is brilliant. She has perfected the ability to ensure the moment is completely yours. She was the beautiful anchor we needed to feel at ease throughout the day. From the first introduction, Katrina is warm, open, and respectful, and with her incredible ability to bring our love story into perfect words, our ceremony was wonderful”

Kirsty Ella – Heart n Soul Ceremonies
Ah…. that’s a big fat YES! Always have been, always will be. #loveislove

Chiquita Mitchell
Yes. Absolutely. It’s so wonderful to celebrate love and no couple is ever the same.
