Kimberly was honestly a savor to us. The person that was supposed to marry us backed out a week before our weddin, she came through and made it work for us. She was absolutely so amazing and sweet. Willing to help us incorporate our 4 year old daughter into the ceramony. She was responsive and professional. The day of the wedding she came to greet me when I was getting ready and gave me a huge hug. She insured everything was set up correctly and ready to go. She became part of our family, and not someone we hired to marry us. We still talk even after the wedding. This isn’t just a job for her, but a life. She projects happiness and love with a glowing light about herself. Absolutely so lucky she was the one to marry my husband and I

Absolutely the best!
Kimberly officiated our ceremony in September 2018, and she was SUCH a pleasure to work with. She worked closely with us throughout the planning process to ensure the ceremony language and layout were what we had envisioned for the day, and it turned out so perfectly. She also made the marriage license paperwork process a breeze, which helped tremendously, since this was a destination wedding for us and we only retrieved our license the week we came in for the wedding. The simplicity of the process with Kimberly made this stress-free and really allowed us to focus on enjoying the time together with our family and friends that week. We cannot recommend Kimberly enough and are so thankful we had the privilege of working with her!

Simply the best!
We found Kimberly through our venue's preferred vendors list, she ended up being the first and only officiant that we contacted! Kimberly and I instantly bonded over the phone during our first conversation, which made it an easy decision for my fiance (now Husband) and I to have her be a part of our special day. She is the type of person that makes you feel instantly comfortable and as if you have been friends for a lifetime, the kind of friend that even after weeks, months or years of not talking you can instantly reconnect and remember why you became friends so instantly in the first place! My husband and I are so happy we chose Kimberly as our officiant and I would recommend her to anyone getting married. She was not only a fast friend, but a professional and made the paper work part of marriage very easy! She is simply the best!
A great company to work with. We highly recommend. Thank you Solace Weddings LLC
Kimberly and I have known each other for over 19 years! She was the first wedding professional to call me and offer her services as a non-denominational wedding Officiant in the way-back-machine! She's been a key part of my referrals every since! Having been Napa County's Wedding Commissioner before starting her own company, A Beautiful Ceremony Napa Valley, has it's benefits. She's is THE most knowledgeable person I know, on current marriage license laws and current paperwork required to get married in this country. if you are a couple from out of state or even out of country, rest assure that she will take care of the legal paperwork. We've had many out of country couples over the years. Kimberly is able to handle it all with ease. No two ceremonies she performs are ever the same. They are a true reflection of the couple she is working with. It's a pleasure to work with such a polished professional.
I have worked with Kim at several wedding with my other business primadonnamakeover hair and makeup she touches everyone who attends her weddings.
