    Personable, reliable and a delight!

    We cannot say enough amazing things about Kathy! We were introduced to her when my brother and sister-in-law used her two years earlier. She completely makes the wedding ceremony all about the couple. Our Nana was raving about her and we knew we had to ask her if she could do our wedding. What is so great about Kathy is that she takes the time to get to know the couple and what is important to them so that she has a strong core to write the ceremony around. She comes to your home and sits down with you to get to know you and make sure you’re comfortable. What’s great about that session is that she records it so she has it as a reference and to share with you on your one year anniversary. Kathy also has an amazing nature about her. She is incredibly calming, funny, And easy to work with! It was important to us that we had someone we were comfortable with. So much so that when we had to change our venue and date, we were willing to make sure that we could get Kathy to the new venue. She was very reasonable about the change of plans and we knew we could rely on her to make sure everything went smoothly. Working with Cathy is more like working with a friend or family member rather than a vendor! We are hopeful to be able to use her for more family events I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in the future!

    Simply the best

    Kathy is just simply the best. We met with her to go over details of our wedding and she was extremely friendly and made us feel super comfortable. She truly cares about the bride and groom and wants to make sure everything is perfect. She’s responsive, takes the time to meet with you and go over every detail. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful thanks to her.

    A Ceremony to Remember

    I have only attended Catholic wedding ceremonies so I had no idea what to expect. I cried so many happy tears when Kathy sent us the first draft of the ceremony script! This was more than we could have ever asked for! She made the process easy and fun! Guests who have been to 20 plus weddings said that this was the most memorable ceremony they had ever attended. She even went out of her way to research Bulgarian traditions we wanted to incorporate. Kathy was a memorable and amazing part of our special day.
