Just like having a friend as your officiant!

Thank you, Karen, for being our officiant! Karen is so sweet and truly gets to know her couples so she can share their story during the ceremony. By the day of our wedding, it really was just like having a friend officiate! We really enjoyed working with her!

Karen was great. She met with us twice before the wedding so she could write our story for the ceremony. She had so many helpful ideas about the process and really eased our minds about how it would all come together. We were happy to have her as our officiant and our dinner guest. we both would recommend her for your special day!!
