Perfect in every way! Best officiant ever!
Carolyn was an amazing officiant! We hired her for the whole shebang (coordination and officiant) and she did wonderful! She is such a nice, sweet lady and I felt comfortable with her from day 1. She was the first person I found when searching for an officiant, but I reached out to many others and they just didn't stand out like Carolyn. It was a bonus that she helped us out with day-of coordination because my wedding was very DIY! We had a rented building and that was it. It was a sigh of relief to find someone who could not only officiate our wedding but also help greet guests, take deliveries and help clean up a little. Our phone calls and meetings were great and she helped me out so much by coordinating my rehearsal and making sure everyone was in line and in the right order for the rehearsal and real ceremony. She was flexible and did whatever made me happy. She even wore my wedding colors on the day-of! I couldn't have asked for a better experience! She was worth every single dollar and I recommend her to anyone!Sent on 11/08/2018
Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison's reply:Your wedding ceremony at the Katy Depot in St Charles was so much fun. Meeting your friends and family was easy and everyone was kind and flexible. Even though the wedding was in early October, it was hot and windy. We made the best with the time we had and your other vendor choices made us one great big TEAM. Many Blessings! ~Carolyn Burke

Carolyn was perfect for our wedding! She's sweet, genuine, and very thorough . We booked the Super Liasion package and we were incredibly happy with her every step of the way! She makes sure all the bases are covered and it was great relief to have her run the show behind the scenes. Our wedding day was perfect and Carolyn is the one I thank for that.Sent on 04/27/2018
Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison's reply:Your wedding ceremony at WOW Furnishings and Event Center was rustic and elegant. The ribbon wand exit at the end was my favorite part. I was honored to be your wedding officiant and ceremony coordinator. ~Carolyn Burke
Will · Married on 10/22/2017
Carolyn was wonderful to work with! We knew that we wanted a short and sweet ceremony, but didn't know exactly what we wanted to say or the order that we wanted to say them. Carolyn provided us with many choices from which we could assemble a ceremony that was unique for us. our ceremony turned out exactly the way we hoped! We can't recommend Carolyn enough.Sent on 10/24/2017
Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison's reply:It was my pleasure to be part of your same-sex union. Both of you have a great sense of humor. Playing trivia, having the ceremony at a micro brewery, and the wedding cake of a Star Trek Starship will be one to remember. Many Blessings!!

Carolyn Burke officiated our wedding on 10/7/17. She was very organized and made sure all the details were ironed out before our big day. Any questions I had she answered. She was also easy to get in touch with, especially the morning of when it was clear Mother Nature was not going to cooperate with our outdoor ceremony. We very much appreciated the attentiveness and thoughtfulness she gave us. Thank you!Sent on 10/12/2017
Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison's reply:I wish the weather did cooperate as the ceremony site at Lafayette Park is so beautiful with the lake, swans, tall old trees etc. You were so patient as we hoped the rain would clear up. The Plan B in the pavilion was so sweet with the wedding party, parents and grandparents inside while guests showed their support with umbrellas. As I like to say, "The show must go on". ~Carolyn Burke Wedding Officiant
Meredith · Married on 07/23/2016
Carolyn was very helpful and easy to work with. I was so happy she was there for the little details that I didn't have to worry about! I would highly recommend her.Sent on 08/14/2016
Sandra · Married on 06/25/2016
Carolyn was such a wonderful coordinator and officiant! She was very helpful during the planning process, and I loved all the ceremony wording she had for us to choose from. That really sped things up. Carolyn made sure our rehearsal and wedding day went smoothly. I am very happy we hired her, and I would recommend her to anyone! The Jewel Box can be a bit tricky since you can only reserve a small time slot, so having an expert by your side is the way to go.Sent on 07/01/2016
Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison's reply:Thank you for your lovely review. The Jewel Box in Forest Park does have it's stresses in ceremony set-up, chair placement, music and sound, and processional quirks. We went over each detail and the knowledge you received in my experience puts the stress on ME and not you. Many Blessings in your marriage! ~Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison

We hired Carolyn as our officiant and ceremony day-of coordinator. From day one, Carolyn had us completely on track. Her updates throughout the planning period and thoughtful questions ensured we had a beautiful ceremony and smooth schedule. I cannot more highly recommend Carolyn - in fact, our only regret of the entire day was not hiring Carolyn to help with the reception!Sent on 05/27/2016
Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison's reply:The wedding was at Lafayette Square Park House. Great care was made in chair set up, decor, greeting guests, and performing the short, sweet and simple ceremony. Your wedding was in collaboration with Sqwires for the reception. Along with a florist and music - we made a great team! ~Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison
Eva · Married on 03/12/2016
Carolyn was very helpful in terms of providing everything we needed in a document that laid out every single step and process. Extremely helpful when you aren't sure where to even start! She made the process so much more streamlined and with great organization. We re very grateful for her service and for helping us get married!Sent on 04/11/2016
Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison's reply:You had the sweetest wedding ceremony in your backyard in Benton Park among family and friends. A little chilly, but you both have warm hearts. Many Blessings! ~Carolyn Burke Wedding Officiant

Carolyn was very easy to work with! And was very responsive! I appreciated her help and advise during the planning and coordination of our ceremony. Highly recommend her!!Sent on 03/10/2016
Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison's reply:I enjoyed working with you at NEO on Locust. You hired me for the Ceremony Coordination Package. Your ceremony was on the first floor and the reception on the fourth floor. You were smart to hire a Coordinator to assist you in the rehearsal, and cue the wedding party down the aisle along with the music. The catering company on the fourth floor continued to make your wedding STRESS FREE.
Kristen · Married on 11/01/2015
Carolyn was a wonderful officiant for our wedding. She was very responsive and provided a great structure for our ceremony, but also allowed us the flexibility to add special touches that were important to us. She arrived on time and made everyone in the wedding party feel very comfortable with her warm personality. We highly recommend Carolyn!Sent on 12/17/2015
Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison's reply:Kristen+Brent, your ceremony at Lafayette Square Park was special. You had a Rose Celebration with your mothers, and had some fine readings. Keeping it sweet with your 13 guests. Many Blessings in your marriage.
Kelsie · Married on 09/13/2015
Carolyn was our officiant for our small wedding at Busch Stadium. She was amazing! Prior to the ceremony she responded to every question very quickly and was extremely easygoing. The day of she knew the "process" at our venue and everything went smoothly. The ceremony was seamless. She is a true professional and I highly recommend her!Sent on 09/30/2015

Carolyn was great! We had a last minute change due to river flooding and Carolyn was able to accommodate us on less then a weeks notice! She gave a great service and was so fun and up beat!Sent on 10/10/2014
Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison's reply:You both have nerves of STEEL to have the wedding moved from the Gateway Riverboat to another site in less than two weeks. I loved your nautical theme - my favorite. Many Blessings. ~Carolyn Burke Wedding Officiant
Leslie · Married on 09/06/2014
We originally hired Carolyn to help us find a venue. After we met with her, we knew we wanted her to officiate our wedding and provide Day of Coordination for us as well.Sent on 02/23/2015
I could not have made a better choice! Carolyn is funny, energetic and she is so full of information and contacts in the industry. Anything you need - she can get it!
She kept me on track through out the planning process and the day of - I didn't have to worry about a thing. This is coming from someone who has big problems letting go of control - so you know that I had to have total confidence in Carolyn and her assistant.
Everything was perfect and I don't think it could have been that smooth without her.
Bottom line- if you are considering an Officiant or a Coordinator, you should be calling Carolyn ASAP.
Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison's reply:Leslie - you are one of the few to use all THREE of my services. Finding your venue for the reception at the Omni Majestic Hotel was a good match for you. Deciding to hire me as your Officiant and Coordinator was smart as the ceremony venue (Mo Botanical Garden) did not have someone there to coordinate. Your smiles throughout the day was the fuel to keep me on my toes and ready to please. ~Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison

Christy · Married on 06/28/2014
We had a hard time finding an officiant for our wedding who was affordable, will do a non-religious ceremony, and someone we meshed with. Luckily, in the nick of time, we found Carolyn! Her services are very reasonably priced, she is flexible and willing to do a non-religious ceremony, professional, and knowledgeable. We immediately felt like we were in good hands and decided to book.Sent on 07/22/2014
We emailed and called before the event, planning specifically what the ceremony would entail. She was helpful in making suggestions, but also flexible in doing what we desired. She is very organized and lets you know what to expect.
The day of, she arrived on time and did a few paperwork pieces as planned. She started the ceremony promptly and did everything perfectly! I was, to my surprise, crying practically the whole ceremony and she was very calming as she looked at me, breathed deeply, winked, and helped keep me grounded. She had my vows and held them as I read them. She was fantastic and we were very happy with our ceremony thanks to her! We would recommend Carolyn for your wedding!
Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison's reply:Thank you for your lovely review Christy. You had the cool idea to add a Wine Box to the ceremony as a way to symbolize your marriage. You had a young teenager playing violin which I thought was precious. Many blessings to you both.
David · Married on 12/09/2013
Carolyn helped my fiancée and I find a ceremony venue and a reception venue on a budget, with MANY options to choose from! Great value!Sent on 12/17/2013
Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison's reply:Hey David! You and Valerie were looking for a non-religious ceremony site and a reception site that allows outside catering. My Resource Guide makes it easy to investigate ideas as I make the initial phone call to check on availability and pricing. You were flexible with your wedding date which can help in the process.

My fiance and I had planned a quiet wedding ceremony in St Louis for close friends and family. We were recommended Carolyn by a fellow officiant, not to mention numerous other good online reviews and her website.Sent on 06/04/2013
We contacted Carolyn and she was very prompt to respond and answer our questions. Once we had agreed upon a date she sent us the details of how she generally conducts her ceremonies. This included the option to select from some of her vows or to make our own, as well as determining the venue and a suitable rehearsal time to be done via telephone. She also offered to do this in person prior to the date, had we so wished.
We met Carolyn for our wedding and she was very polite and friendly, she went through the paper work first, so that the excitement of the wedding wouldn't be lost afterwards, this was a great idea! She conducted our ceremony with great life and enthusiasm, which everyone enjoyed. It was meaningful, yet simple and brief, exactly what we had hoped for!
We both would recommend Carolyn for anyone looking for a celebrant who respects everyone's beliefs and do not want to be bogged down with religious ceremony. It was great to have an open wedding in a beautiful park with close friends, than a cold courthouse in front of a judge, which was the other option!
Thank you Carolyn for making our day special!
Carolyn Burke Wedding Liaison's reply:Thank you for your kind words. Many blessings in your marriage.
