Perfect Officiant!

Kathryn was just a pleasure! She has such an incredible air about here. She is kind a quirky and full of life! There was no better match in our eyes for our wedding officiant. We had an incredible ceremony and people were really impressed with it. I was asked on multiple occasions how I found Kathryn and told what a wonderful job she did. She was able to touch on emotions and keep things light-hearted and beautifully flowing. We chose a reading to include and wrote our own vows. Kathryn made a little book of our ceremony reading in it for us to keep which I thought was such a nice touch!

We are so happy we chose Kathryn to be our officiant. We are both non-religious and wanted our wedding ceremony to be beautiful without being religious, which can be hard to find. We chose Kathryn's pre-written ceremony which we loved so much we didn't decide to do anything customized. It was beautiful and short which we needed as our ceremony was outside in December. Many of our guests commented on how moving her words were and how wonderfully she delivered them. She has a very warm presence, and Patrick was grateful for her company to help calm his nerves as he waited at the alter when there was a bit of a delay getting things started. She also gave us a nicely printed personalized copy of the ceremony to keep, which we absolutely love. We couldn't be happier we chose Kathryn to officiate our wedding.

Kathryn Blume
Owner

Along with being an actor, writer, and yoga teacher, I’m also an ordained minister with the Universal Life Church, a 60s-era hippie church out of Modesto, California which believes in democratizing the marital process.

I got ordained and started officiating because I’d attended the wedding of friends who’d been married by a judge in a dry, non-spiritual, deeply boring ceremony (no offense to judges in general but this one was a dud).

I knew that many friends heading to the altar were spiritual but not religious and I figured there had to be a non-denominational way of infusing their ceremonies with heart, spirit, and meaning.

Since I got started I've had the honor to perform ceremonies for a range of people with widely varying backgrounds, entnicities, religions, orientations, and identities.

I've also done bi-lingual weddings where I both did and did not speak all the languages involved, sung at several ceremonies, and contended with the last minute loss of a ring, a late minute hurriciane, a vomiting dog, a vomiting groom, boundary-busting cows, highly invasive dragonflies, and a bride who was in active labor during the vows.

I live in the woods of Charlotte, Vermont with my husband Mark and two undeniably sexy cats.

Mark is Kathryn's awesome husband, and go-to backup officiant. He spent decades as a theater artist before becoming a highly sought-after psychotherapist.

He's kind, funny, reliable, well dressed, and very tall.
