Wonderful Officiant!

Our wedding coordinator introduced to Kat Newman and she's such an amazing lady! We were able to pick and choose ever aspect of our ceremony so it was tailored for us! It was such a special and touching wedding ceremony! My mother who is a staunch Catholic woman and was disappointed we were not going to be married in a church by a priest was so impressed by Kat. My mom said she never heard a priest give such a meaningful and love-infused ceremony the way Kat did. If you're looking for an officiant, look no further!

Diorio Wedding 4/29

Annie DeRomo officiated our wedding ceremony at Amara Cay Resort on April 29th. Kat & Annie were so easy to work with during the planning process & everything went great during our ceremony. I would highly recommend working with Ceremonies by Kat! Thank you both so much for the awesome experience! :)

Magical Officiant!

Three words…Kat is fabulous!!! When we first spoke it was like talking to a long time friend. She was so knowledgeable and informative and captured our story so beautifully. Kat provided so much guidance and advice and made it effortless for the ceremony to come together. The most important part of our special day was just perfect.

We can’t wait for the video. Kat included just the right mix of fun, humor, memories, tributes and love. We were lucky enough to have her stay for our reception and loved seeing her out on the dance floor. Kat will alway be special to us for being such an important part of this day and we look forward to watching the photos and videos from her future weddings!

You can not go wrong with selecting Kat to officiate your wedding. She was amazing.
