    B and Q Wedding

    Dear Kathy,
    Words cannot express how grateful we are that you performed the most wonderful, heartfelt, tender, and warmly humorous ceremony we could have asked for. Everyone was smiling, laughing, crying and remembering their own weddings hearing your words of love and life moments which brought us together. Thank you again, from our hearts, for making our union an unforgettable moment to remember for all our years to come.

    Ever After Memories's reply:

    Bea and Q - Thanks so much for sharing these kind words. I loved meeting you both and your lovely family. Cozy, personal ceremonies at home are some of my faves! All my best to you both!

    Personable JOP that is forever a part of our lives now!

    Where to begin with Kathy - SHE IS AMAZING. It was so relaxing to work with someone who was as organized as I was! She made wedding planning very easy for us and made the ceremony absolutely AMAZING! For rehearsal, Kathy put together an organized cue sheet making it very easy for everyone to know what their respective jobs were. Kathy helped us understand what different traditions are out there - some of which we had no idea about! Everyone loved the ceremony and there was not a dry eye in the crowd!

    Kathy loves what she does and it really shows. She cares about each and every one of her clients and takes the time to get to know them as a couple - no one is just another client to her. The first ZOOM meeting was what sold us - easy to talk to, fun, spunky, caring - but most of all... personable. She cared about us and it was not getting another client.

    I would 1000/10 recommend Kathy with nothing but the highest respect for what she does! Everyone loved the ceremony and Kathy is FOREVER a part of our lives!

    Ever After Memories's reply:

    Wow - I just couldn't ask for a more lovely review. Thank you so much taking the time to share this. I had a great time meeting you and Fred and your wedding will definitely be unforgettable. Much love! - Kathy

    Absolutely Phenomenal

    Kathy is absolutely phenomenal — I don’t even know where to begin. From the moment we met Kathy she exuded kindness and professionalism and you can tell she LOVES what she does. She truly gets to know you and wants your ceremony to be authentic and special — nothing about what she does is “cookie cutter.” Our guests were blown away by how personal our ceremony was, to the point that they thought Kathy was a friend of ours. You will not regret trusting Kathy with your special day!

    Ever After Memories's reply:

    So thrilled to be part of your day - after 10 years you and Myles got to start a brand new chapter. I was honored to get the best seat in the house to witness it! Much Love, Kathy
