We had the pleasure of meeting Kathy and having her marry us just this past September. Finding the right person to officiate your wedding can be a challenge - but look no further, Kathy is the BEST. We were getting nervous because our wedding was a month or two away and we had not found an officiant yet. After briefly emailing and speaking with Kathy over the phone, we knew she was the one for the job. From our very first conversation, Kathy let us know up front that our ceremony style, length, etc. is totally up to us; she will/can do whatever we would like. This was so important for us because we had run into officiant's who were set on certain scripts and did not want to alter them. Kathy was the opposite - we must have made like 3 or maybe even 4 drafts before finalizing the ceremony lol. Kathy was patient with us throughout the entire process and gave us so many options and ideas to work off of, which we were appreciative of because it helped up to create the perfect ceremony that was customized to fit us. She was very inviting and friendly, we went over to her home in DC for our meetings (her rooftop view is amazing). We had such a lovely time because Kathy really takes the time to get to know you as a couple and we also got to know her as well. One other thing I would like to mention is that Kathy is well spoken, when the day arrived she did a beautiful job for our ceremony, we were very pleased :) she also took a picture with us and made this little memory card and sent it to us the next day, it was so cute! These are the little things that she does to go the extra mile - you get to really see how passionate she is about weddings and being an officiant, she truly loves her job. I would highly recommend Kathy to anyone who is getting married in NOVA, she is simply wonderful!!Sent on 10/22/2018

We are so happy we found Kathy to officiate our wedding. From our very first conversation with her, we knew we were in good hands. Kathy is experienced, professional and passionate about her work. She helped us feel comfortable and customized our ceremony to match our values and personalities. Day of, a few unexpected things happened and Kathy thought on her feet to make it beautiful. I received so many compliments from my guests about my ceremony.Sent on 05/14/2019
