    What can I say about Kris! She was honestly the best officiant we could have come across. She made us feel comfortable, confident and put together a BEAUTIFUL ceremony tailored to us as a family, that ALL our guests were talking about. Very down to earth, personable and extremely easy to work with. Quick responses to questions. She made the process of finding our officiant stress-free and worth every penny! We absolutely love her and would recommend her to everyone!

    Kris was amazing to work with. From the moment we met her we felt strongly that we would ask her to officiate our wedding. We met her only once and from that meeting and a couple of other emails she was able to completely encapsulate who we are individually and as a couple. She is very communicative and easily accessible by email and text. Her voice is calm and soothing and for someone like me who is easily affected by large crowds and loud noises it was important to find someone with those characteristics. We received a version of our ceremony within a couple of months of signing a contract and she was willing to make any changes that we requested. We started out with three different rituals. After reading through the ceremony we decided to take out two of the rituals and just incorporate hand fasting because the words and the symbolism meant more to me and my husband. Kris was completely fine with taking out these rituals and also made several suggestions for readings that once again captured the essence of who we are together and individually. She is sincere and genuine and you just feel like you have known her forever. We received compliments all evening from our family and friends on how beautiful the ceremony was and people could not believe that she was able to glean all that she did about us with one meeting and email correspondence. The ceremony sets the tone for the rest of the wedding and she created an atmosphere of love and affection that lasted all night long.

    I am so happy to have found Kris to officiate our wedding! From our first phone call, I could tell she was not only professional, but warm, friendly and personable, which is exactly what we were looking for in an officiant. She thoroughly explained the entire marriage license process and timeline, making it as stress-free as possible. She put together a beautiful ceremony outline that was perfect for us, and was very responsive and helpful, quickly answering any questions we had along the way. Kris arrived early and handled the paperwork amidst the chaos of everyone getting ready in our wedding suite. She helped walk us through the ceremony since we did not have a rehearsal and it went perfectly. I highly recommend her!

    Rev Kris was amazing and so helpful and easy to work with! My husband is not very religious and was concerned with how our ceremony would go. Meanwhile, our parents are pretty religious and I knew we had to find a balance that would make everyone happy. Reverend Kris TOTALLY delivered! Many guests told us how beautiful our ceremony was and one of our guests who is a mayor and marries people often told us it was the most beautiful ceremony he had ever heard. Thank you Rev Kris!!

    Kris was simply the best.
    From the moment Chris (my husband) and I met with Kris, we knew she was the perfect fit for us.
    Personable, sincere, available, and earnest.
    From getting to know us personally so that our ceremony was specific to us, to helping us research ceremony rituals/styles to her guiding us through writing our vows - one could not ask for more from an Officiant.
    In addition to all that she added to our perfect day of celebration, Chris (my husband) and I also agree that we have found a new friend in Kris. She's empathetic, charming, present and clearly loves her work and loves love. She's highly recommended!

    You will not regret having Kris officiate your ceremony.

    My husband and I could not have been happier with Rev. Kris! From our consultation to wedding; she was amazing! She made everything so easy and comfortable, which was such a relief throughout the stressful wedding planning process. The ceremony was beautifully written and exactly what we wanted. Our guests still talk about and compliment what a great ceremony it was. Kris was so organized and professional on the wedding day. She checked in numerous times and helped ease our nerves. Truly a sweet, easy-going, wonderful person! Please don't search any further for the perfect officiant- I promise you won't be disappointed!

    Kris was above and beyond. We spoke to a few officiants and we knew from the initial call that she was the one. She was very accommodating in our request to keep the ceremony a surprise, and a pleasant surprise it was! She spent a good time talking to my fiance and I to tailor a ceremony that was very intimate, emotional, and something we will never forget. I was particularly fond of what she called the hand fasting. It was my favorite part. We invited her to stay for the rest of the night and was very friendly and sociable to all our guests. I cannot thank her enough. Highly recommended!

    We were so impressed by Reverend Kris Bruno’s service at our wedding. We found her on Thumbtack. Five minutes after we sent the message of interest we got back an offer for a phone call or meeting to review our needs.
    We called several days later. She reviewed her background, asked questions, and came back the same day with a proposed wedding ceremony for our review and comment. She told us everything we needed to do to get the Marriage License, the witnesses, documentation required, how and where she would file the license, how may days it would take to complete the process.

    The day of the wedding she arrived exactly as promised, in professional attire, managed the marriage certificate process with the witnesses and explained how she would be filing and when we should expect everything to be ready. She also walked us through the ceremony step by step. She coordinated with our DJ and then she conducted the ceremony in a reassuring manner – prompting us perfectly through our vows, a short but meaningful sermon, and finally the marriage itself.

    Most importantly - Reverend Bruno personalized the service, and made us feel perfectly comfortable through the entire process. We felt like we’d known her and trusted her for years.

    It was amazing to work with Kris! We knew it right away when we met with her and spent hours talking like we were old friends at Starbucks! Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted--sentimental and a true reflection of our love. Kris puts her heart and soul into her work and it is evident in the beautiful ceremonies that she officiates. We were so lucky to have her be a part of this most special day in our lives.

    Quite possibly the best wedding officiant ever. The instant we met Kris, we knew she was “the one” to marry us. Along with her genuineness and calming demeanor, she was easily accessible and always made herself available. She worked with us to personalize our wedding and offered many creative spins to our ceremony that will forever be ingrained in ours and our wedding guests’ memories. Days, weeks and months following our wedding, we had guests still talking about how heartfelt and special our ceremony was (and when do guests ever rave about the ceremony?). Kris, thank you for making our day so incredibly special. I am so happy that not only were you an amazing officiant, but I can also call you my friend ♥️♥️♥️

    I can't put into words how amazing Kris was from start to finish when it came to planning our ceremony. She has a heart of gold. From our first initial meeting to our wedding day Kris was always available to answer any questions we had. She made our ceremony so personal and so genuine.

    Well, what can I say, Kris was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. When we first found Kris online she immediately stood out to me as professional, especially after reading the reviews. Being in England at the time and only being able to communicate via email, I needed someone I could trust to be responsive and as helpful as possible in terms of the structure of our ceremony. Kris provided us with all of the assistance and guidance we could possibly need, from legal requirements to the finer details of how we wanted the ceremony to run. Everyone agreed that the ceremony was undoubtedly one of the best parts of the wedding, it was beautiful, meaningful, and most importantly, it was engaging.
    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely lady to anyone, she was truly great. You will not regret it!

    Kris officiated my wedding on 9/16/17 and it was amazing! Our ceremony was everything I dreamed of and more. Kris helped us put our own personal touches on it and created a very thoughtful and romantic ceremony for us and our guests that we will always remember. So many of my guests have told me how they loved our ceremony and it was the best they have ever attended! Kris was also very helpful throughout the wedding planning process as well, answering questions in a timely manner and making sure we had everything we needed the day of.

    Kris was everything we were hoping for and more in an officiant. From the first day we met with her, she made us feel comfortable. She had great ideas and a draft ceremony to us virtually overnight. Kris was always responsive, and best of all, she let us guide the way we wanted our ceremony to be...an expression of us, not anyone else. This was important to us.

    As soon as we met Kris for a consultation, we knew immediately that she was the person we needed to marry us. She drove hours out of her way to meet us outside of Philadelphia. We felt so comfortable sharing our story and talking about our vision for the ceremony with her. She listened to the things we wanted in our ceremony and provided great advice for things we were not so sure about. She also provided amazing readings, poems, and unity ideas! She was very timely with writing our ceremony and made sure we okay'd everything that she had written. She kept in contact over the year to make sure we were okay and did not need any help with marriage license, etc. She was so professional and kind throughout our wedding weekend and both of our families were floored with her grace and kindness!! You can tell she cares about her work and wants to ensure she fully captures the spirit of the couple in every ceremony she does. She was exactly the person we needed to help us get married and we could not thank her enough! If you're looking for a kind and caring individual, Kris is the officiant for you!!

    First and foremost, I could not have had a better person officiating the wedding than Kristine. She was beyond amazing and made my husband and I feel completely at ease while we were up at the alter. She had such a personal connection through our story when we first met with her to go over what we would like to do during the ceremony. She took both of our feelings for one another and molded it into a beautifully composed timeline of our relationship. She really does the upmost best to connect with her clients, that you feel as if she has been a friend for years. I am and will definitely be recommending her to all future brides and friends. She was wonderful!

    Kris was the perfect touch to our ceremony. From the start, she gave us great ideas to help make our ceremony unique. She was extremely responsive throughout the whole process and the day of the wedding she came extremely prepared! She had touched based with our DJ beforehand to make sure the acoustics were good, had the readings printed out and prepared our readers, and even had tissues when the tears came! I strongly recommend having Kris to officiate your wedding. She is the best!

    Kris was amazing, from the time we sat down to meet her to our actual ceremony. Everything was perfect, she really listened to us and our needs, found the most beautiful words for our ceremony, and made it a day to remember! She was prompt with replying to questions, walked us through the marriage certificate, she really thought of everything. She is extremely professional, yet extremely personable. We couldn't recommend (or thank!) her enough.

    Rev. Kris was an absolute joy to work with. From the first phone call, she was warm, caring, responsive, and teeming with creative ideas. So many of our guests commented on how thoughtful and meaningful our ceremony was, which was something very important to us. Rev. Kris wrote a truly beautiful ceremony and added in special touches to reflect who we are. We are truly grateful for her positive and supportive presence at our wedding and throughout the process of planning our whole day.

    Kris just married us last weekend and we could not be happier with her service! From the beginning she was very responsive and accommodating! We had late night phone calls & she immediately made any changes to our ceremony that we asked for. She is also very well spoken and presentable and looked beautiful at our wedding!
