Kate developed a personalized and meaningful spiritual, but non-religious, ceremony for us. She took the time to meet with us months before the ceremony to sit down with us and get to know us and our story. She delivered a beautiful ceremony on the wedding day and our guests commented that it was very touching. We were very pleased and we recommend Kate for your big day!Sent on 10/19/2019

Beautiful and Genuine Ceremony!!!
Rev. Kate is Amazing. She begins the relationship with a get to know you call, followd-up with an extremely helpful questionnaire to center you and your future spouse on what kind of wedding you want!! Then she meets with you in person, plans it all and then rocks it on the day of! Rev. Kate was also extremely organized and helpful at the rehearsal and she was so elegant and poised and genuine during the ceremony. Definitely work with Rev. Kate if you want an amazing experience!!Sent on 11/21/2019

Working with Kate as our officiant was a BREEZE. We instantly felt comfortable with her during our initial "get to know you" meeting. Her ceremony was absolutely perfect, and was personalized in just the right way. We received several compliments from guests about her words! We were so happy to have Kate be an integral part of our special day!Sent on 10/28/2019
Kate was such a joy to work with! I had the pleasure of witnessing one of her beautiful ceremonies at a wedding I photographed. She tied in so many personal anecdotes about the couple and preformed an unforgettably heartwarming and moving ceremony. I can't wait to work with her again soon!
