Our ceremony with Rev. Kate was the best part of our wedding!
Far and away the best part of our wedding, and the part we keep getting compliments and have guests bring up over and over, was our ceremony, and Rev Kate was a huge part of that. She worked with us from the time we booked her right up to the minutes before to make sure that our ceremony was tailored exactly to us. She gave us plenty of options to adjust how spiritual/not, traditional/personal, classic/quirky we wanted the ceremony to be, and got to know us to make our ceremony exactly about us. We HIGHLY recommend her!!Sent on 06/23/2020

Reverend Kate Adamson was a pleasure to work with. She is very detailed and passionate about making sure her clients have the most special ceremony for their wedding. Our guests were all impressed by our ceremony and that Kate created a very welcoming, connecting environment that made everyone feel included. Kate’s professional, relaxed demeanor made it easy for us to discuss what we wanted out of our ceremony. We loved trading stories of how we each met our partners, and what we find special about them. Kate has a catalog of poems/passages that she loved sharing with us to help us brainstorm our ceremony. We would highly recommend her for any couple looking for a great reverend for their ceremony.Sent on 03/30/2020

Experience with Kate
Kate was a pleasure to work with. We appreciated her responsiveness, professionalism, and flexibility. We endured a pretty difficult hike to get to the location for our ceremony and Kate had no problem with it. She offered ideas for the ceremony that we loved. I would strongly recommend KateSent on 07/29/2020
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!
