    Completely personalized, intimate, joyful and sweet!

    Kim Kirkley was so amazing. She took the time to get to know our love story and masterfully, artistically, and romantically infused that story into our ceremony. The first time we read what she created we were close to tears. We were in shock that someone who was not us could capture the essence of us so beautifully. Our wedding guests were floored and honored that we invited them into the story of us through our ceremony. During the ceremony they laughed, cried, sighed, and were astonished to find out that it wasn't written by us or by someone who had known us throughout the entire journey of our relationship. However, we were proud to say that it was all Kim Kirkley.

    If you want a ceremony that feels intimate, joyful, honest, sweet, and sets the stage for your entire day, then Kim Kirkley should be your top choice.

    Amazing officiant!

    Kim officiated our wedding on 7/7/19 in Brooklyn and she exceeded our expectations! We booked Kim very early on in our planning process and from our initial conversation/consultation to going through drafts of the ceremony, she was a consummate professional. She listened to us and centered us and our love, never assumed or thought her ideas were the best and only ways. Our ceremony accurately reflected our love, personalities, interests, and passions. She captured and narrated our love story so beautifully. People laughed, cried, and nodded in agreement during the ceremony. We'd be remiss if we didn't mention Kim's beautiful, yet commanding voice. We highly recommend Kim, without any reservations!

    I've worked with Kim on countless weddings since our first one in 2005. She brings to each couple her keen sense of awareness that is essential when creating a unique ceremony. She is personable, warm, insightful and kind. Every couple that we've worked with together has felt blessed to have had their ceremony created by Kim.

    Kim is an amazing and a wonderful Celebrant. Anyone who chooses Kim to officiate at their ceremony will not be disappointed. Kim introduced me to the Celebrant Profession and I am so greatful!
