Kathy was everything we wanted in an officiant—and more! She was friendly, efficient, professional, experienced—I could go on. The hunt for an officiant was not easy. It can be nervewracking trying to find someone to lead your ceremony, the most important part of your wedding. I honestly don’t know how we got so lucky. I found Kathy, reached out to her, she made traveling arrangements, and everything turned out absolutely perfect! She webcammed with us to get to know us and sent us sample ceremonies and we were able to choose and customize however we liked. But the best part was her delivery on the day of. Her speech and manner absolutely fit the theme that we were going for—warm and friendly. Not everything can go exactly as you would have liked it to on your wedding day, but this is one of the things that did! Thank you Kathy!!!Sent on 10/14/2018

Such a pleasure!
Kathy was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was extremely responsive, always very top notch professional and just overall so sweet. I'd highly recommend using Kathy as your officiant, regardless of if you want it to be a secular or non-secular ceremony. She is super experienced and it really shows in the way she works with you.Sent on 04/09/2019

Made getting married a breeze
During our hunt for an officiant, we came across all kinds of people. Heartfelt Weddings gave us Kathy to work with and from the start, she was the most helpful person. She emailed us a list of things to think about (who was going to walk down the aisle, pdf document of sample weddings and ceremonies, etc). She was there for our rehearsal and really helped smooth things for the actual wedding day! I would definitely recommend her for other couples looking for a friendly, professional officiant! After the ceremony, she delivered a booklet of our ceremony and vows for us to keep for memories. And one week later, she emailed us saying that the paperwork was through and we were ready to get our official wedding license. Thanks Kathy!Sent on 01/28/2019
I've had the pleasure of covering weddings officiated by both Kathy and Larry. Their presence and attention to detail are unmatched in my experience. I love the way they relate to the couples and make the ceremony more than just a formality. I recommend them for anyone wanting a more meaningful ceremony.
I have performed harp services for wedding ceremonies with both Kathy and Larry on several occasions. Both of these wonderful officiants are an absolute joy to work with, I am never worried about cues and both come across so warmly to others. Helpful, experienced, and a joy to work with sums this couple up. The bonus with this team is you have two chances at one of them being available for your wedding date!
Kathy and Larry at Heartfelt Weddings are both wonderful people! I met them at a boutique wedding show and they were so friendly and easy to talk to.
