Kya was amazing to work with, right from the beginning. She showed tremendous flexibility, attention to detail, and creativity while working with us. She was full of fun, trendy ideas and also very knowledgeable about traditions. She was able to take details from our lives to create a personalized, enjoyable ceremony that reflected our relationship perfectly. Multiple friends and family members shared that it was the best ceremony they have witnessed. Thanks Kya!

Can't say enough good things about Kya (Enchanted Vows). She was a wonderful officiant who delivered a great service that was tailored to us and responsive to our needs. She was professional, timely, and a delight to work with from beginning to end.

Kya Rose was so professional and sweet, right from the initial interview we felt comfortable. She showed on on time for both the wedding rehearsal and the ceremony. Her service during the ceremony was wonderful. She had also kept a great communication with us right up to the actual wedding, and even after congratulating us. I would highly recommend Kya, she is such a sweetheart that made us feel less stressed about the details of filing afterwards, as we could head right out on our honeymoon, Kya took care of all the paperwork too.

Thank you so much, Nick and Amy. It was a joy to work with the two of you and your wedding party. I was honored to hold your Grandmother's bible during the ceremony, Nick and I always enjoy working with people who know, as I do, that children add joy to every ceremony no matter what they end up deciding to do!

So glad to be able to ease your mind as you embarked on your honeymoon. May you carry that ease and bliss throughout your lives together!

Kya was an amazing officiant! She replied right back when we had questions or concerns regarding our ceremony. There was no judgement when we told her we wanted a non-religious ceremony. She made sure everyone knew what they were supposed to do during the rehearsal, so the ceremony ran extremely smoothly. She helped make our wedding day unforgettable!
Enchanted Vows responded with the following comments:
I'm so glad you were happy! I love being able to help couples run a full rehearsal that answers everyone's questions and allows the ceremony day to go smoothly.

I wish you every happiness!

My new husband and I enjoyed working with Kya! She gave us an excellent overview of how wedding ceremonies can go and options that would work for us. We especially like how she provided us versions of ceremonies that we could adjust to fit us just right. She was fun and easy going and adaptable to our needs - outdoor, kids, short rehearsal window - so it felt fun and pleasant. We both highly recommend her as someone who can help your day flow smoothly with good natured calmness amidst the hustle and bustle.

Thank you, Ariel. You and Leon were a delight. I'm so glad I was able to work with you in turning one of my basic ceremonies into the perfect ceremony for the two of you. I wish you all of the happiness in the world!

We couldn't have picked a better person to marry us than Kya! She is so kind and truly made our day about us. Everything about our ceremony was catered to my (now) husband and I. The way she worded everything was so wonderful and special. Kya was always very prompt at answering all of our questions and returning our emails. She made every go so smooth and her vast knowledge on weddings is amazing!
After our ceremony, we wouldn't tell you how many guests came up to us and commented on how wonderful and how personal our ceremony was. Many thanks to Kya Rose for making our day all we wanted and more <3

Kya Rose at first seemed to know what she was doing as she had done wedding before. We met her for about 20 minutes in Lansing when we were in town (we are from Seattle, WA).

Right off the bat we noticed her lack of detail, she would email us items and address us by names of other couples (clearly not taking the time out for details).

I cut her ceremony wording from a 30 min ceremony to 10 min. Her words were very redundant and not well written. It was not what we were looking for.

When the wedding came near I sent her an invitation with the ceremony start time, we also sent her a final payment with the same info.

20 days before the wedding I received an email from her stating that she will not do our ceremony because we changed the ceremony time from the original contract. (FYI - the contract states you get your money back 21 days prior to ceremony - funny how that worked out)

The contract clearly stated we have her time for 2 hours, considering our ceremony is only 10 minutes (as she indicated in prior communication) changing the start time to 6:00pm instead of 5:00pm (which is well within the contracted time) should not have been a problem. But Kya and I quote " I will not put my other couples into a position where there time is infringed upon through no fault of their own." Meaning she had double booked our slot of time.

She would not offer our money back.

Our solution: We asked her to come and sign the mariiage licence on the wedding day at 5:00pm. Kya Rose showed up looking unprofessional (sweat pants) and 20 minutes late.
We had our gorgeous Maid of Honor (Kaylynn) do our ceremony.

A silver lining here, I think so. Kaylynn did such an amazing job and she is my best friend making the ceremony a success due to Kaylynn personal touch and not to mention she looked amazing standing up there doing our ceremony.

Please stay far away from Kya Rose. She will give you more headache and there are far better people out there.

Enchanted Vows responded with the following comments:
I am deeply sorry that you were unhappy with my services. I only wish that you had let me know while there was still time to resolve your problems.

When we designed your ceremony you told me you wanted it to last 30-40 minutes, even after I told you that ceremonies that go much beyond 20 minutes begin to sound redundant. I completed a first, rough draft for you to look over and let you know that I was happy to edit it however you liked. You offered me no feedback either way and edited it yourself. Until I read this review I had no idea you were upset about the ceremony at all.

We signed a contract stating a starting time for your ceremony that reserved 2 hours of my time; from 30 minutes before the ceremony was to begin to 90 minutes after. I have performed hundreds of weddings and know from experience that 2 hours is a comfortable but not excessive amount of time for a typical wedding. It accounts for delays, the receiving line, photo opportunities, last minute additions to the ceremony and allows everyone to be comfortable through the process.

You changed the start time of your ceremony to one hour later and never asked or informed me. It was only when I contacted you with the details that you told me you had changed the time.

Now this *does* happen to me from time to time. People make mistakes, plans change, things get overlooked. I understand that and I can be flexible. However, you offered me no apologies, blamed me entirely and gave me no assurances that you would respect my time before or after the ceremony, allowing me to maintain my professional integrity and still leave at the contracted time. Your contempt for me and my services was obvious and I made a judgement call as you were very clearly in breach of our contract. I then *did* refund the unearned portion of my fee even after you told me not to bother.

I am glad that your ceremony turned out so well for you all. Again, I'm sorry that you were unhappy with my services.

Kya was absolutely wonderful! She worked with us as we created a very personal and meaningful ceremony. Our family and friends have given us tons us compliments regarding the ceremony that Kya put together. Our guest thought my husband and I were long time friends with Kya because of the intimate and special details Kya incorporated in our wedding ceremony. I would recommend Kya to anyone looking for an officiant that will deliver a ceremony that will be remembered for a lifetime.

Kya Rose made our ceremony very personal and special. I got compliments all day from family members who were touched by the ceremony that she and I put together. The words were beautifully put and were designed around us as a couple. I couldn't have imagined it any better!

Thanks Cassie. It was a lot of fun to help you and Jay and your family create a ceremony that allowed your guests to see just how special and unique you all are. I wish you all a lifetime of happiness and lots of Spartan and Lions wins in your future!

Kya Rose provided us with the most beautiful and personalized ceremony that also involved our family members/guests on our special day. Even after the ceremony, our family members/guests have commented on what a "truly splendid and exceptional ceremony" and how "special" they felt to be involved in our special day. Thank you Kya for these most precious and treasured moments that will remain in our hearts forever. You are a blessing. - Kirk & Suzanne

Thank *you*, Kirk and Suzanne, for allowing me to be a part of your amazing ceremony on the beautiful Ledges! It was wonderful to work with you two on designing a truly unique and interactive ceremony for your lucky family and friends. I'd love to see some photos as I'm sure they must be stunning between the location and the two of you!

I wish you and your daughters a lifetime of joy, dancing and adventures together!

Thank you Kya!! Our wedding ceremony was perfect! In the weeks leading up to the ceremony she was available to revise the ceremony script as many times as we wished. Kya was also very flexible-due to an error on the chapel's part, we were unable to rehearse inside...so without batting an eye, she ran the rehearsal on the front steps. Though the bridal party was unfamiliar with the inside of the chapel, everything before, during and after the ceremony went smoothly with her help.
Enchanted Vows responded with the following comments:
Thank you for taking the time to review my services, Emily. I'm so glad that you were happy with the ceremony we designed and put together for the two of you. I love the Unity Tree and am always happy to work with couples who want to edit and incorporate it to work for them. Your rehearsal was a little ... different... but I think we all pulled together and made it work despite the challenges.

I am concerned that you don't feel that my quality of service and value are at the 5 star level. If there are any outstanding issues I can resolve for you, please let me know. Additionally, I'm open to hear any feedback you'd like to offer me so that I can improve in these areas. I want all of my couples to feel they are getting 5 star quality from my services.

Thank you again for your feedback. I will continue to work on offering higher quality and value to those I work with in the future.

We came to Kya Rose with only a couple weeks left until the wedding, fingers crossed, and boy, did she take care of us. She turned out the best ceremony we ever could have asked for, and in such a short period of time. My husband and I had only met once to discuss the nature of our relationship with her, but that's all it took. It was perfect. She has quite the repertoire under her belt, and I feel like she can write the perfect tailored ceremony for the most traditional to the quirkiest of wedding couples. Her online archive of readings, ceremonies, and real wedding couple examples was a great help. Sometimes, you know what you want for your ceremony but have NO idea how to put it into words yourself!

Regarding the guests, all they could talk about was the ceremony. I know many of them came up to her and thanked her for how lovely and personal it was. My husband and I also had no idea how great it was going to be, because she didn't give too much away during the rehearsal.

Sister Kya is completely professional and all smiles on your wedding day. You can trust her... I am a "I have to do it myself" type of person, but with her, you can just give her the reigns, relax, and enjoy your wedding. :)

Thank you so much!

Aw, Shannon and Igor, your ceremony was an absolute joy to help you design. You, your family and friends were so enthusiastic about everything, it was great to be able to encourage them to cheer and shout and celebrate throughout the rowdier bits of the ceremony. I just loved being able to incorporate the oak tree into the service and your Polish vows were a huge hit!

I wish all of you many, many years of joy and laughter and celebration as you continue to grow together like the roots of that amazing oak tree!
