Kristin Is Wonderful!
My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our decision to have Kristin officiate our wedding back in September. Kristin truly cares about all the couples that she officiates for and it really shines through in her kind, calming, and positive demeanor. She immediately put us at ease from the moment of our introduction call all the way till the big day. We both commented that after the introduction call, we felt like we had known her for years. She made an effort to really get to know us, tell us about her background and walk us through what the ceremony would look like. She offered helpful suggestions that we hadn’t even thought of. One in particular, which we really loved and did was for our unity ceremony - we put the vows that we would have said to each other on the day of and 2 bottles of beer (which fit in nice with our wedding at Stone Brewing) into a box that we will then open and read on our 1 year anniversary and repeat for the years to come. She also walked us through all the steps involved with getting the marriage license and after the ceremony, she took care of submitting the marriage license back to city hall which really made the entire process seamless. She even gave us breathing techniques to help remain calm and present in the moment – which I needed:) We got so much positive feedback from our guests about how great Kristin was and we can’t recommend her enough!Sent on 03/27/2020

Kristin is a Total Sweetheart!
Kristin came highly recommended to us by a friend. We met with her so she could get to know us as a couple and the type of ceremony we wanted. She suggested so many blessings and had several templates we could choose from. Together, we created our perfect ceremony script. She has such a calm and loving energy about her which was perfect for our ceremony!! Thank you so much Kristin for being part of our special day! We will always remember you!!Sent on 10/31/2019
Intimate Ceremonies San Diego's reply:Thank you for the lovely review Andrea :). Working with you and Patrick was a joy. Experiencing you both taking your ceremony and marriage to heart and bringing back some traditional aspects was wonderful to be a part of ♥️. I will remember you both always with gratitude. Thank you for inviting me into your "Happiest Day Ever!"

Made our Wedding Perfect!!!
Kristin did a fantastic job of marrying me and my wife Alicia in small intimate ceremony with our family. Ahead of the wedding she provided great advice on the marriage process and solicited our personal touches to the ceremony. On the wedding day itself, she was terrific in being patient with us, our dogs and our photographer. When it came to the ceremony she knocked it out the park with a touching and personal ceremony. She totally made our wedding ceremony everything we could hope for. We can’t recommend Kristin enough.Sent on 07/03/2019

Kristin Gave us the Perfect Wedding Ceremony!
My husband and I love Kristin! She was extremely supportive and helpful guiding us through the process of preparing for our ceremony. I really appreciate how astute she is on our cultural background and coordinate colors to match our wedding. On the day of our wedding, she was a champ and delivered the perfect wedding ceremony incorporating our love ones, and our fur babies. Kristin gave us the perfect wedding ceremony! We couldn't recommend her enough to others.Sent on 07/05/2019

It was so easy to work with Kristin for our wedding ceremony! From the initial consultation with her, it is clear that she wants to get to know the couples that she works with personally in order to make the ceremony special for them. We had a pleasure working with her!Sent on 07/07/2019

Kristin is the BEST officiant in San Diego!!!
Kristin is one of the warmest and kindest people we have ever met and we are so fortunate to have had her officiate our wedding in December 2018!!! My husband and I are from the Bay Area and we were planning our wedding a year out from our destination coastal wedding in La Jolla. Another one of our incredible wedding team highly recommended Kristin to us so we reached out right away! We heard back from her immediately and we arranged a date to meet with her as we were heading to SD for the New Year holiday to see family and friends. We met Kristin at our hotel in La Jolla and my goodness, we were both immediately taken by her positive energy and kindness. She took at least an hour to get to know us and to begin to sculpt the perfect ceremony to meet our needs. She is such a GEM and we knew we had found our perfect person to wed us the following year. We stayed in touch with Kristin over the following year and as the date approached, she sent us the ceremony she had designed specifically for us. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!! Every word she had written completely captured what we had wanted and then some!! We cried when we read it!! At the day of our wedding, Kristin was such a calming force for both myself and my husband before and during the ceremony. Her calm presence and uplifting and powerful words had us all in tears!!! WOW! It was so incredibly special and we will forever express our deepest gratitude for having met this incredibly special human being. Thank you, Kristin from the depths of our hearts!Sent on 12/31/2018

Kristin made our ceremony incredibly special. She was super flexible and made sure that our ceremony truly reflected both our individual personalities and also our relationship. She asked great questions and helped us think through what marriage meant to us as we planned our ceremony. Kristin was also incredibly responsive throughout the entire experience.Sent on 06/16/2019

Kristin is amazing!
My husband and I are so thankful for the work Kristin put into our wedding. We live in Las Vegas and had a beautiful destination wedding in sunny San Diego, and Kristin really worked with us to make sure our ceremony was perfectly tailored to who we are as a couple (without even meeting us in person yet). Our guests had rave reviews about how wonderful/special the ceremony and vows she put together were. We are so happy she was a part of such a special moment - one we will NEVER forget.
She even matched her outfit to the colors my bridesmaids wore - it's the little things!Sent on 11/02/2018
Intimate Ceremonies San Diego's reply:Thank you beautiful Jessica 🙏 Being part of your wedding day was an honor and I enjoyed every correspondence with you from our first call to finally meeting in person on your wedding day (And was in awe of your beauty inside and out)! :) It fills my heart to know that you and Andrew and family and friends enjoyed your ceremony, and you are right, "The little things truly are the big things".

Kristin is so great. We were looking for someone who had a very good, mellow vibe to officiate our wedding, and Kristin was perfect! We had an initial phone call with her, and she covered everything and even provided a full script that we were free to edit however we’d like. She was very flexible and totally open to our edits, suggestions and questions.Sent on 10/02/2018
We later met her in person at our venue so she could see the setup since it was a bit non-traditional, and we had such a great time. She made us feel so at ease and offered great advice. A friend had remarked to me at one point that vows should be similar, like my vows shouldn’t be super serious if my hubby’s vows were more playful and fun. I asked Kristin about this and she basically encouraged us to just be ourselves and not to worry about whether our vows had a different tone—that they would reflect us and our personalities. I thought that was great response.
I had also shared with Kristin that I was terrified of attention, and was genuinely worried that I might faint or something before or during the ceremony. She had great advice and her presence is so calming that it really helped on the big day.
Part of our vows included a goofy song lyric thing that my hubby and I repeated to each other during the ceremony before the “real” vows, and it got a good laugh. I appreciated that Kristin was open to including our goofiness on our special day.
Kristin was totally professional throughout the entire experience and such a breath of fresh air during a stressful time. She is the best!

Kristin did an excellent job officiating our wedding ceremony. She was easy to work with, and was able to adjust the ceremony script to reflect our personal tastes, such as our definition of love and personal vows, as well as incorporate a Jewish tradition into the ceremony. Since my husband and I planned the wedding ourselves, we had a lot of last minute edits and requests, and she was able to work all of them in and provide us with guidance where needed. We would recommend Kristin for anyone in the San Diego area looking for a professional and personable officiant for their upcoming nuptials!Sent on 09/05/2018

My husband Seth and I could not be happier with the experience of having Kristin officiate our wedding. We chose to do a private elopement on the beach at Coronado Island, alongside our beloved pug Violet.Sent on 06/25/2018
When we met with Kristin to plan the ceremony, her warm and open demeanor immediately put us at ease. She seemed genuinely interested in getting to know us and learning about our relationship and what we envisioned for our ceremony. She then sent us her lovely script for the ceremony, which offered numerous options to allow us to customize it to our liking (for example, she offered many different "definitions of love"; we chose the beautiful Apache Wedding Blessing).
The day of the wedding, Kristin was very organized and professional. At the same time, her easy-going nature helped calm our nerves. The ceremony flowed beautifully and was even more lovely than we had hoped. As an amazing bonus, Kristin also has an extensive background as a florist. She designed a gorgeous bouquet for me in my favorite jewel tones along with an adorable floral wreath for Violet. Finally, her service of hand-delivering the completed marriage certificate is just one more example of her going above-and-beyond for her clients.
We can't recommend Kristin highly enough. She was a very important part of a day that we will always treasure.

Kristin was a delightful and professional officiant. My wife and I chose to do a low-key elopement on the beach, and Kristin not only conducted a beautiful ceremony—she even helped us find the perfect spot.Sent on 04/11/2018
Her easy-going manner also helped remove whatever stress we might have felt. Can't recommend highly enough!

Tracey · Married on 03/09/2018
Kristin is such an amazing person and beautiful soul. We felt so lucky to have crossed paths with her and have her officiate our wedding. She really cared about making this experience about us down to how the vows were structured, the ambience of the location and connecting with our family and friends. I feel like we can call her family now too. If we could do it again, we couldn't pick a better person to guide our wedding ceremony.Sent on 06/06/2018

I am from Brazil and decided to get married in San Diego! I started looking at officiating websites that could celebrate my marriage and that's how I met Kirstin!
She was my best choice. A kind, caring, gentle, calm person who gave me all the security necessary to make the moment of the ceremony unforgettable for us. Everything was so beautiful and I will be eternally grateful for all of Kirstin's attention to us in the preparation of the ceremony, participating in our history and our vows. It was beautiful and unforgettable!
Kirstin, thanks so much for your love and attention with us!
You are now part of our story!Sent on 11/30/2017

We are so glad to have had Kristin officiate our wedding! Her calm, sweet, and loving disposition brought such a bright and peaceful atmosphere to our wedding ceremony. Kristin also walked us through customizing our ceremony with the vows and crowning ceremony we wanted, and was so flexible and encouraging with our requests. From our initial phone conversations to all our email correspondences, Kristin's patience and genuine kindheartedness gave us so much ease through both the wedding day and the less glamorous marriage forms and documents! She made our wedding ceremony so beautiful and special, and we are so grateful to have had her be a part of our day.Sent on 11/01/2017

The wedding performed by Reverend Kristin for my son and his beautiful bride was just superb. Kristin's persona, and the sense of calm she brought to everyone during her delivery made for a very enjoyable and dignified ceremony. She's first class, and I recommend her to anyone seeking a wedding officiate.Sent on 10/09/2017

I had the honor of having Kristin officiate my wedding. Kristin was referred to me by one of my clients and I am so pleased I chose her. She has the most kind, loving, soothing voice. She believes fiercely in love. She was a dream to work with, giving us a wonderful ceremony to work with and was incredibly responsive. The ceremony was my favorite part of my wedding. Kristin did such a beautiful job without being center of attention. We loved her. Hire her, you will not regret it!Sent on 09/27/2017

I am SO glad I met Kristin! She is such a wonderful person in general, and the day we met her she made my husband I feel so comfortable and excited about our upcoming ceremony. Fast forward to the Wedding day, she did a remarkable job and made our wedding ceremony truly special and one of a kind. The way she speaks and the words in which she chooses to create a memorable ceremony are so powerful and beautiful, it's nearly impossible to desrcibe just how perfect she made our ceremony. I will forever remember my wedding day starting off perfect because Kristin did such an amazing job at our ceremony, and I will highly recommend her to all of my friends and famiy! We love you Kirstin!Sent on 08/30/2017

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Kristin! I feel so unbelievably fortunate to have met her! As a fellow wedding planner, I’ve had a vision for the big day and all the vendors that could help that come to life, but I was still missing an Officiant that we felt comfortable with and would make our ceremony feel special. My husband and I were planning an outdoor Beach Ceremony & Reception at Scripps Seaside Forum, but we wanted the Ceremony to really stand out as the most important part of the day – as it often gets overlooked! Kristin was able to tailor the Ceremony with us and it was absolutely beautiful! It was romantic and personal, inspiring and family oriented, as we wanted to include our parents, step-parents and grandparents after a particularly hard year with cancer & health issues between our families. Kristin has a passion for Weddings and meeting new people and really getting to know them. She has a wonderfully calm & loving demeanor; we absolutely love her and could not imagine our Wedding Day without her!Sent on 05/20/2016

Perfect for our elopement. She put together our ceremony but also allowed us to add in some personal touches. Very flexible with timing and location since we had one day to actually pick our location. Absolutely amazing, calm, and very professional.Sent on 04/17/2016
