    Kathy is a sweetheart! Such a dream to work with and with her big smile and warm demeanor, deciding to work together was such an easy decision! My husband and I were originally going to have a close friend or family member act as our wedding officaint and while that would have been fun, we really wanted someone who could best help us create a unique and authentic to us as a couple ceremony. That is exactly what Kathy did for us, but only so much more! We first met through Skype and my now husband had a strong feeling she needed to be the one to marry us and he was so right. She then gave us “homework” which consisted of 10 or so questions about our relationship. This was honestly one of the best parts of the whole wedding planning process for us because it really made us reflect and appreciate all we have been through as a couple. Then we met in person to go over our questionnaire and we were set from then on. We went back and forth a few times over email, she was open to all of our feedback and suggestions, and in just a few months, Kathy had created the most perfect ceremony script for us! On the wedding day, her energy was fantastic and she really captivated our guests. We received so many compliments on the uniqueness and intimacy of our wedding ceremony and we have Kathy to thank for that! She made a ceremony that was so perfectly us and we wouldn’t have changed a thing! The ceremony brought us both to tears and Kathy made us feel like we were the only ones there, she is truly a special soul and we are forever grateful!

    Kathy officiated my wedding in August. I cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking for a wedding officiant!!! She's great to be around, she's professional, spoke so clear, fluid and everything was absolutely top notch. We met with her once through FaceTime, then again in person prior to the wedding so we could all get to know each other. She wrote our entire ceremony, then rewrote it after our edits. She wanted us to be genuine, didn't want us to have anything in our ceremony that wasn't true to us. (I loved that part!) she helped us with our vows and was so patient with us when we finally got our vows to her the day before the ceremony. Kathy is a pleasure to work with. Weddings are stressful and Kathy only put our mind at ease throughout the entire process. Our ceremony was so personalized that during our wedding I had so many people tell me our ceremony is the best they've been to. They asked if Kathy was a close friend of ours that they've never met, and so on. The compliments kept pouring in. Kathy was the best choice we could have made for our wedding!!!! Sooo happy we found her!!

    Kathy was wonderful to work with. She was everything we hoped for in our officiant - responsive, professional, flexible, and most importantly, passionate! She made us feel so comfortable and we're so thankful she was a part of our special day.
