    When looking for the person who would officiate our wedding, our greatest concern was finding someone who would make the ceremony honest and personal. Our main problem was that we are spiritual but not religious and it was difficult to find someone who be open enough to create something that reflected that. Finally we found Karen. From the beginning, Karen was enthusiastic about getting to know us. She took the time to meet with us, together and individually, to learn about our backgrounds and beliefs, our families, how we met, and what we value most in our relationship. The result was a beautiful ceremony that was perfect for us. Karen certainly has a gift for connecting to people and celebrating who they truly are. I cannot imagine trusting anyone else with such an important role in our wedding!

    I can't say enough about Karen. I knew even before I proposed to my wife who I wanted to officiate my wedding. Karen met with us as a couple and individually to talk about our relationship and to get to know each of us a little better. She worked with us to plan our ceremony to be EXACTLY what we wanted, right down to the song that was playing as we walked down the aisle. She was open to our spiritual beliefs that lie outside the mainstream, and even incorporated some pagan wedding blessings into our prayer portions of the day. If you want someone to go above and beyond, look no further than Karen, you won't do better.

    Karen was absolute joy to work with! She insisted on sitting down with us first in order to really get to know us before taking part in the biggest day of our lives! She was accommodating and the best to work with hands down!
