Ruffled By Grace

Speak Love. Bless People. Give Grace.

Your story matters. Let me honor your love story by creating a personalized and tailored ceremony that is uniquely yours. Whether you want light-hearted and modern or more traditional religious language, I will creatively weave together your story with the language that speaks to your hearts. My ceremonies are never dull – laughter and tears included.

Paris based, but traveling the world to prove that spiritual doesn’t mean boring; sometimes blessing breaks the “rules.”



Paris, the City of Light, is a place made for life-giving moments of abundance. If you and your beloved are lovers and dreamers, a Paris elopement or wedding will suit you.

Vow Renewals

Whether you have been married one year, five, ten, twenty or more, choosing to say “I do” all over again against the backdrop of a Paris landmark will be an opportunity for blessing, laughter and love.

And More

Rev. Michelle has served the church for over 15 years, spending most of that time in local parishes. She is a skilled preacher and pastor and is available to offer various pastoral services.

The Latest from Michelle

Happy Couples

  • Michelle truly made our wedding ceremony special and personalized. Her words elaborated on the love that we share in our relationship. She was everything that we wished for and then some. It was an unforgettable day that was made even more memorable by Michelle.

    Sara & Donovan
  • We are forever grateful that God brought Rev. Michelle into our lives for this moment. We have so much love and gratitude for Michelle.

  • A trusted friend suggested Rev. Michelle Wahila for our Paris wedding— and she was a perfect match with fantastic communication, planning, and a dose of laughter. We wanted to include our own faith traditions, and Michelle brought it all to life better than we could have hoped. We are thankful and will recommend her in a heartbeat!

    W & L
  • I can not say enough about how incredible Michelle was in facilitating our vow renewal ceremony. She was amazing! We could not have asked for a more beautiful ceremony, in fact, the ceremony she lead was far more meaningful than our first ceremony! (Which was beautiful as well!) She is just made to officiate!

    Sarah & Michael
  • Reverend Michelle is such a wonderful and thoughtful celebrant. She listens to the couple's love story and creates a beautiful "one of a kind" ceremony text that truly represents the couple's relationship. She is kind, warm, professional, and has great attention to detail. Any wedding couple would be lucky to have her officiate their ceremony!
