Amazing officiant

I had the pleasure of having Kathleen as the officiant for my wedding ceremony. She was amazing to say the least. She was exceptionally helpful, not just for the ceremony, but for all the other details associated with getting married. She helped me create a list of to-do’s prior to the big event and made sure I was prepared. She was very responsive to my many questions. She arrived early and helped ensure our wedding party was ready for the ceremony. She was so friendly and approachable, making everyone feel at ease and comfortable. She was pivotal in making my wedding the most amazing day ever.

Dream Officiant

Kathleen was honestly the best officiant we could have hoped for. She took the time to write a beautiful ceremony for us and made it so personal, prior to our wedding she met with us to go over details and ask for feedback, which she incorporated beautifully.
