    Rev. Kris Bruno made our day memorable. All of our guest were so touched by our ceremony. My husband and I are so happy that we touched so many people. We were approached by a couple who are divorced and remained friends that they are now going to get remarried all due to a wonderful job Rev. Kris Bruno did. It's our pleasure to have had Rev. Kris Bruno as our officiant. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts the new Mr. & Mrs. Lentoni. We loved it very much. Thank you ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

    We just had our wedding and had the pleasure of using Kris as our officiant. My husband and I come from two different religious backgrounds so we wanted an officiant who was able to mesh our two backgrounds together. She was a true pleasure to work with. Upon requesting information, Kris quickly reached out to us and we had a fabulous Skype call where we chatted about everything. She went through great lengths to get every detail of our relationship to ensure we had a beautiful ceremony tailored with both traditions. Kris put us at ease as she guided us through the process.
    She gave us tons of ideas and was so flexible and accommodating with what we wanted. She wrote a gorgeous ceremony and we were able to tweak it and give feedback to make it perfect for our wedding day. Kris also helped us with the marriage license process beforehand as well. On the day of our wedding Kris was there early to ensure she had plenty of time to get set up as well as take care of the marriage license signing. The ceremony was beautiful and she was so well spoken. We had people complimenting the uniqueness of the ceremony and how it truly fit both of our religions together. It was a joy to work with Kris and we highly recommend her for your future events!

    Reverend Kris Bruno was professional, prompt, attentive, kind and an all around genuine person. A pleasure to work with. With her readings and customization, the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. Many of our guests commented on how touching and beautiful the ceremony was, and we have her to thank for that. We are so grateful to have picked her.

    I cannot even begin to express what an amazing job Kris Bruno did putting together the most beautiful ceremony! It was the most magical 30 minutes of my life! It was so touching and heartwarming it had us all in tears. She suggested so many unique and creative ideas that I had never seen at other ceremonies. She spoke so eloquently and every moment flowed seamlessly into the next. It was perfect and I cannot wait to relive it on the video!

    In search for an officiant being in Texas and having a wedding in New Jersey , it was not the easiest process to find an officiant being half way across the country . I , the now wife, am from Pennsylvania. My husband is from Texas (hence how we met :)) . When we finally landed upon Kris online and read her bio we knew . There was a good gut feeling and we took a chance . We planned and had our first FaceTime date and it was an immediate comfort and great feelings in our hearts . As if we already knew her as a great friend or family member . We were able to incorporate our own traditions in our ceremony. It was the most beautiful and emotional ceremony everyone has seen and felt . Kris was an amazing puzzle piece to our beautiful day on the beach .

    Kris was truly a pleasure to work with. From the very start, she answered questions via email in a timely manner and quickly set up a meeting with me and my then fiancée. We spoke for about an hr at that meeting and I feel like she asked the right questions to get to know me and my significant other well. She then created a customized ceremony that wasn't just a cookie cutter template that many other officiants provide. She was even open to working in a unity ritual she hadn't performed before and needed very little guidance to successfully work it into the ceremony. The day of the wedding she continued to show her support for us and I was particularly impressed with how she provided enough space for me and my family getting ready while also ensuring that all the necessary documents were signed in advance. An absolute pleasure, and the ceremony was just beautiful! I would recommend her to everybody.

    Kris was the only officiant we met with. From the moment my husband contacted her and we visited with her at her home, everything was great. She was great with communication and performed a wonderful ceremony. A lot of my guests commented on what a nice ceremony it was and I feel like no one usually pays attention or comments on that! We are so happy we used Kris and recommend her to anyone looking for a wonderful ceremony with a wonderful person!

    Kris was a delight to work with from day 1! From the first phone call I knew she was the officiant for us! She spent quality time working with us to make our ceremony both thoughtful and personal, adding special unique touches and spiritual tones. She arrived on time, had everything in order, and was 100% reliable. Guests continue to compliment us on our ceremony and how great our officiant was! Couldn't be happier!! :D

    Immediately upon meeting Kris, we felt at ease and knew we found the person who would officiate our wedding. My husband and I weren't crazy about the idea of having a stranger marry us, but Kris is the kind of person that you feel like you have known for years after just a five minute conversation. She listened to us and developed a beautiful ceremony, made changes as requested, and was extremely responsive and professional. Afterwards our family and friends raved about how wonderful our ceremony was and how great Kris was. We highly recommend her!!

    I want to start by saying when you look for any vendor for your wedding you want responsiveness, responsive communication and a gut feeling you can trust this person. Kris was all of those things-however, with your officiant, you want so much more than that-and Kris is it!!!

    When my now husband and I were first looking for an officiant we really didn't know what we were looking for, besides the ability to really make an authentic connection with us and eventually with our wedding guests. Kris swept us off our feet at our first meeting with her! Her professionalism and experience and a way to draw out from us what made us truly special as a couple and what made our love unique had us feeling secure that we had found the right officiant and quite possibly more than we ever thought to even look for in a wedding officiant. She's incredibly creative had lots of cool ideas for ceremonies and readings that we just had no idea about and had an air of nonjudgmentalness ( if that's even a word) when we were going through all the pieces of the ceremony and she truly wanted to understand if a piece would resonate with us as a couple. She was professional and careful not to make anything about her-keeping the focus true on expressing Joe and I as a couple. She knew what questions to ask to ascertain whether or not something would be a better fit for us and eagerly looked to find something that would be a perfect fit, good enough is not in her vocabulary. The night of our wedding and now even months after our guests are still telling us how they really loved her ceremony, in fact one of our friends wants to book her for their vow renewal!

    I absolutely could not be happier with our ceremony, and the entire process of working with Kris. From our first meeting, she made us so comfortable, and ensured that we were getting the exact ceremony that we wanted. She is punctual, organized, and sent us a copy of our ceremony 6 months before the actual date, which was unbelievable. This gave us time to make changes, and really ensure that the ceremony was personalized and fit us as a couple. On the day of the ceremony she took care of all of our needs regarding our marriage license, communicated with all of our vendors, and checked in with us to make sure there were no last minute changes. After our ceremony we got SO many compliments about how it was something a little different than the usual ceremony, and that it really reflected us as a couple. Our wedding was 11 days ago, and we are still over the moon about the whole night, and it all began with the ceremony!

    Kris was PERFECT! Before our wedding, she met with us and got to know us and our story. She gave us some recommendations and worked with us to create a ceremony that would prove to bring tears to many eyes. She even captured a small moment from the groom's proposal and tied it into our ceremony. The day of our wedding, we received a call from Kris telling us that she had been in an accident, but was able to switch cars and STILL made it to our wedding with time to spare!
    Our ceremony was amazing, and our guests raved about our ceremony, commenting that it was the most beautiful ceremony they've ever been to. We couldn't agree more. Our ceremony was personalized with her creativity and our story. We whole-heartedly recommend Kris as an officiant for multiple reasons, but topping the list is her ability to make us and our guests believe that she was with us through our entire relationship.

    In addition to Kris being very professional in her service and communication she makes your wedding ceremony personal, unique, and gives you so many options to choose from. Our wedding ceremony was so personal that many thought my husband and I knew Kris personally prior to hiring her. Kris also knows every detail necessary to take stress off of the ceremony process.
