We were married on a cold November day, but Carolyn warmed our hearts with an amazing personalized ceremony. We could not have asked for anything more. Carolyn truly captured who we were as individuals, and who we had become as a couple. Even now, remembering the words that Carolyn spoke bring smiles to our faces. She did an exquisite job of including the aspects of faith that were important to our families, while building on the foundations of compassion, generosity, and respect that we hold as ideals.Sent on 12/15/2018
The pre-marriage work that Carolyn assigned, as well as our various face to face workshops, were beneficial to our relationship and felt like no work at all. Instead, it showed us a new way to connect that we still use in everyday practice.
Carolyn and Grand Avenue Wedding Officiants were unparalleled, and after our first meeting with Carolyn, we knew we had to work with her on our ceremony. Her commitment to her couples is outstanding - if you choose Grand Avenue Wedding Officiants, know your wedding will be held in the highest esteem and nothing will interfere with one of the most important days of your life.

Helped create the wedding of our dreams!
It's hard to describe in words how amazing Kjersti was as our wedding officiant! Her thoughtfulness, responsiveness, consideration, dedication, and appreciation for every detail was truly magnificent. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her from the moment we met. Her optional premarital counseling sessions and homework where well informed and created important and meaningful conversation between my husband and I before and beyond our big day! On the day of, she helprd everything from the rehearsal to the ceremony and beyond run smoothly. Kjersti created a ceremony that was unique and 100% representative of my and my husband's relationship and love story. We can't thank Grand Avenue Wedding Officiants enough for helping create the ceremony of our dreams! A sentiment that was shared not only with each other, but also with the wedding party, our families, and our guests.Sent on 11/27/2018

Carolyn officiated our wedding in New Richmond, WI on 10/13/18 and she was truly incredible to work with! Our friends and family all complimented on how beautiful the ceremony was, in large part to Carolyn's beautifully written words and how she really took the time to get to know Ben and myself before the wedding. We spent several sessions with her reviewing how we wanted the ceremony laid out and she took everything we said into consideration and made sure we were happy with how things would be said or done! I would highly recommend her to anyone!!Sent on 11/28/2018
