    Amazing and memorable

    I can’t even begin to explain how much this meant to us. Kris is an amazing person inside and out. She was the one we choose for our ceremony this past weekend. With everything happening with COVID-19 she made our day as special as anyone can imagine!! From the first time we spoke till even days after has kept true to everything. She was very much involved and an amazing person!! Can’t say enough about her and would recommend to anyone at anytime!

    Amazing officiant!

    Kris was amazing to work with as our wedding officiant. She developed a wonderful ceremony and my fiance and our reviewed it months before our wedding. Kris was extremely attentive and answered any questions or concerns we had right away. Our ceremony was beautiful and it was the most memorable part of our wedding and Kris was a huge part of that. I highly recommend her!

    Highly Recommend!

    We recently had Kris officiate our wedding. She did an absolutely amazing job! She was very easy to work with and accommodating of all our needs. We received many compliments on our ceremony and we can thank Kris for that! She also made obtaining the marriage license and filing it after the wedding a stress free process (especially when you are going on your honeymoon right after the wedding). We would highly recommend Kris to anyone looking for a wedding officiant!

    Don't hesitate if you are thinking about having Kris officiate your wedding!!!!

    My husband and I wanted a ceremony that was light-hearted, fun, and personal to us, and Kris gave us exactly that. From the first phone call, she understood exactly what we were looking for and created a ceremony that fit us perfectly. She told our love story so eloquently that everyone in the room felt a personal connection, and MANY people came up to me during the night of the wedding and commented on how much they loved the ceremony and that it had moved them to tears! We had absolutely no stress at all when it came to the ceremony because she made it so easy for us. Kris, thank you for everything - our moment was absolutely perfect thanks to you.

    Where do I even start. I cant say enough amazing things about Kris. She is the definition of perfection. She is the kindest, most loving, and sweetest soul we have ever met. She is the absolute best officiant and human being in the world. Our ceremony was the most beautiful ceremony I have ever seen. You could feel the love bursting in the room. Kris, you made the most important day in our lives the best, seriously you are incredible, not only as a person but also what you do. I am SO LUCKY we crossed paths.

    Wedding 9/28/19

    Kris wrote a beautiful heartfelt ceremony for our wedding day! She really asked so many questions during our first skype call with her. She truly seemed interested in our story and enjoyed getting to hear about our love story and what we are like as a couple! Not knowing what a ceremony really entail, she really laid it all out for us to understand and gave us some excellent options of things to add. She was always very responsive to any questions I had. Everyone really loved the hand ribbon part of the ceremony. If you are looking for someone to really capture your love story and make it into an unforgettable ceremony, definitely go with Kris!

    Amazing Experience

    We are so happy that we chose Kris to officiate our wedding. She is such a kind person and we knew during our first meeting that we were in great hands. We had multiple guests come up to us during our reception telling us that it such a beautiful ceremony. We can not recommend her enough .
    Thank you Kris!

    Kris, we love you!

    Kris Bruno, where do I begin?! I cannot even begin to explain how amazing you are both as a wedding officiant and as a person in general!!! I am so beyond happy that I found you on the Knot. I knew when Taylor and I first met you that you were the perfect officiant match for us! We had our initial meeting with Kris and everything went so smoothly. Yes, we talked about how Taylor and I met, what we're doing for our wedding, etc., but we also talked as if we had been friends for years! We just clicked! From there, she got our wedding ceremony out to us very quickly (we had it over a year in advance). The first time I read it, I cried. Kris has such a natural talent. We waited until about 1 month before the wedding to meet with her again when we had things finalized. Instead of a finalization meeting, it truly just felt like we were grabbing coffee with a friend. Per my request, she came to our rehearsal dinner. At this time, she filled out all of the paperwork so we didn't have to worry about it wedding day. She honestly fit in so well with our family and friends that night. Taylor and I were so nervous to read our personal vows, but Kris does everything to make you feel comfortable. She reads your vows before the wedding day and has tissues up at the altar just in case. I read the ceremony a million times before the wedding day, and on the wedding day I was still speechless hearing it. It was honestly the most beautiful wedding ceremony I have ever heard (I could be biased, but even my guests said so)! Kris is the perfect officiant for anyone. She is so talented and can create a beautiful ceremony for any occasion. I promise you will not be disappointed!

    Oh my goodness! Thank you so BEAR-y much Kristen and Taylor! From our first meeting when we were served accidental pastries to watching your first dance, I was thrilled to be your officiant! I agree, we bonded over many things and I too enjoyed hanging out with you, your friends and families. Thank you so much for the joy of being a part of your best day ever❤️ Love you guys!

    Thank You!

    Our venue recommended we reach out to Kris ahead of our wedding and we were so happy we did! During our first meeting Kris took the time to get to know both of us and then gave suggestions on ideas for our ceremony. She put together a draft and worked with us on it until we felt it was absolutely perfect! She did a rehearsal with us the day before our wedding - helped ease some of our pre ceremony jitters. The ceremony the day of went perfectly! She even gave us helpful instructions prior to our wedding on how to get our marriage license and then also information on how we get our marriage certificate after we got back from our honeymoon. If you’re looking for an organized and thoughtful officiant, Kris is perfect!

    Best day ever! Thank you, kris!

    Kris, where do we even begin. Thank you so much for agreeing to be our officiant. You made this special day so amazing for not only us, but for all of our guests. We really feel like the universe brought us to you. You blew our guest away. They are still calling us and saying how amazing you were, how professional and beautiful our ceremony was. Everyone kept asking if we knew you because our ceremony was so personal and intimate that they for sure believed you knew us for years. We couldn't agree anymore. We feel like family, and we are forever thankful! We cherish the words you spoke, and we plan to hold onto the commitment and love for each other that you so beautifully shared to our friends and family on our behalf.
    Thank you again!!
    XO

    More than we dreamed!

    Kris was an absolute pleasure to work with! The ceremony is the most important part of the wedding (in our opinion) and we wanted an officiant who would reflect our love in the most genuine way possible. We loved Kris from the start when we met her at a nearby cafe for a consultation. She got to know us as a couple and then wrote the most beautiful ceremony script for us to review! She was always responsive to our emails with questions or quick edits and sent us reminders and thorough instructions about how to apply for our marriage license (one less thing to worry about)! On the day of the wedding, Kris arrived an hour ahead of time to go over some last minute details and then officiated the beautiful ceremony she wrote for us. Her genuine passion for celebrating love was evident and many of our guests commended her and asked how we found such an amazing officiant. We’ll wrap it up since we could go on and on about how happy we were with Kris’s services. In summary, we 1000% recommend Kris without a hint of reservation!

    Great experience start to finish

    Choosing Kris to officiate our wedding was such a simple decision after meeting her and one I will be forever glad I made! Kris was genuinely interested in learning our story and making our ceremony tailored to us. She stayed in touch throughout the entire process making sure we did the paperwork leading up to the big day, and certainly delivered during our ceremony! Our guests were all so impressed with her poise and delivery. We already have provided her information to engaged friends and will continue to!

    We loved our officiant!

    Most people who attend weddings focus on the food, the venue, the hotel, etc. but never remember the officiant. I can say that Rev. Kris Bruno did such an AMAZING job people complimented on our officiant!!! Her overall demeanor and elegance during a wedding ceremony really stood out to people. She was amazing throughout the entire process making sure that our ceremony fit to what our needs were, making suggestions, changes and constantly following up. When our rehearsal had to be at a dinner venue she met us there to make sure everyone knew what they had to do! Even showed up 1.5 hour early to make sure everyone was in their places and the music was all set up for the actual ceremony. Rev. Kris loves her job and you can honestly tell. I couldn't of asked for a better person to be apart of the biggest part of our day. We felt our ceremony fit us perfectly and was everything we could of asked for. Thank you so much!!!

    Wedding Officiant

    We cannot thank Kris enough for the wonderful ceremony she provided us on our wedding day! When we first met with Kris she was helpful with suggestions and made planning a ceremony so easy. She took time to know about our relationship to make our ceremony personal which is exactly what we were looking for. She was always quick to respond to my questions and helped us with our marriage license process. Our guests commented on how beautiful our ceremony was and noticed how well spoken Kris was. We are so happy we chose Kris to be a part of the biggest day of our lives!

    Amazing Officiant!

    Where do I even begin? I reached out to Kris 2 weeks before my wedding and luckily enough she was available. I’m so glad!! We went through the ceremony over the phone and she gave me sweet ideas - sand ceremony and hand ribbon promise. It was just beautiful. You can definitely tell she absolutely loves what she does. You won’t be disappointed!! I promise ☺️ Thank you again Kris!!! 🙏🏼

    The best officiant!

    Kris was AMAZING! We booked her in March for our untraditional elopement in the woods. Due us living far away we face-timed Kris and discussed what we envisioned. Kris wrote up a perfect ceremony and vows that incorporated things personal for us. She even suggested including a hand fasting which was so perfect for us. We had the most amazing ceremony and Kris was the perfect part to our day. Thank you again Kris!!

    We loved Kris!

    We could not be happier with our choice to have Kris officiate our wedding. After our first meeting, we really felt connected to her and comfortable sharing details of our lives. We could tell she really wanted to get to know us and our love story, and she always kept in touch during the planning of process. If we had questions, she responded right away. Kris helped us calm our pre-wedding jitters and even met with us again a week before the wedding. Kris wrote the most beautiful and personal ceremony for us. We absolutely loved having her lead the most important part of our day. Kris is genuine, down to earth and super caring. Highly recommend.

    We loved Kris, she married my husband and I in July in my husbands parents back yard. It was so special and romantic but casual at the same time. We weren't expecting to have such a lovely service and Kris out did herself.

    If we could give Kris more than 5 stars, we would. She made our ceremony an actual dream come true. Our guests couldn’t say enough good things about how beautiful it was. From the initial FaceTime call with her, we knew we needed to book her right away! She even gave us all the info we needed to obtain our marriage license. We will never forget her words and how special our ceremony was. If you’re looking for an officiant, Kris is it!!

    Best decision we made!

    From the first moment that we spoke with Kris, we knew we wanted her to be our officiant! We had actually spoken to 2 other officiants prior to Kris and it just didn’t feel right with them. We truly felt that she was excited and happy for us and didn’t even know us! You can tell that she absolutely loves what she does! Our venue wouldn’t allow a rehearsal before the day of the wedding and Kris was so flexible with coming earlier that day to do the rehearsal wth us. She also came prepared with print outs of our vows and the readings so we didn’t have to worry about that detail. She is just a genuinely sweet and kind person on top of all that. You will not go wrong by choosing her as your officiant!

    An Amazing Day

    We cannot say enough good things about Kris! We knew from our first phone meeting that she was the perfect fit for us. Kris is professional, caring, genuine, sincere, responsive, and very accommodating. She really goes the extra step to get to know her clients. Our wedding guests were amazed when we told them we had only known Kris for a few months, because of how personal she made our ceremony. We would highly recommend Kris to any couples planning a wedding!

    Kris is amazing! Choosing her as our officiant was one of the best wedding planning decisions we made! From first contact to day of, Kris was always there for us and available to answer any questions we had. When we met her she asked us the right questions in order to get to know us. From there she created the most beautiful and personal ceremony for us. Our guests are still talking about how great she was. They even thought that we knew her personally ! My husband and I would recommend Kris a million times over! She is the best!

    Amazing, personal, and friendly

    Kris Bruno is an amazing officiant! When our family friend had to back out as our officiant with only about a month until our wedding, we took to the knot to look for someone quickly. Kris had so many amazing reviews and we can say she truly lives up to every one of them! The minute we met with Kris to go over the details we would like for our wedding, we felt completely at ease. Kris has a very calming and gentle nature that makes you feel comfortable and you can trust that your ceremony will be beautiful. Kris was very willing to adjust to our vision and customize our ceremony to make it special. Our guests were in tears with all the beautiful things Kris said and everyone kept asking how long she had known us because she added in such detail. We cannot say enough great things about Kris and if you are considering meeting with her, you will not regret it! Thank you Kris for making our ceremony so heartfelt and beautiful!

    My experience with Kris was amazing. I would recommend her to anybody looking for an officiant!

    As soon as I met Kris from the moment of our initial meeting....I knew she was the officiant for me. She listened to exactly what we wanted in our ceremony and she brought it to life so quickly. Kris was amazing throughout the whole process from the start to finish. She kept in communication and helped me every step of the way to make sure things went smoothy. I would recommend Kris to anybody and think she’s amazing!!!!
