    Wonderful!

    Words cannot express how grateful we are to have had Katrina as apart of our wedding. Meeting with her was incredibly therapeutic, and provided a reminder of why we fell in love and are still in love with each other. We received so many compliments on the ceremony, and in part due to Katrina's help in formulating our readings. I am so very happy to have chosen Katrina to be our officiant.

    Britnnie & Richard ---it's so easy when wedding planning to get distracted by all the planning. I love to help couples really connect with each other & remember why they are getting married in the first place. Your words touched me deeply! Thank you!

    Excellent experience

    I have nothing but great things to say about Katrina. My husband and I live in NY, and Katrina was so accommodating and easy to work with! She took the time to Facetime and Skype with us, and was always to quick to respond to any emails, questions, or concerns. Katrina took the time to listen to our story and asked us some really thoughtful questions about ourselves and each other. We had an idea of what we wanted to say in our vows, and Katrina was able to put those ideas into the most beautiful and genuine language. The whole process was so well organized, all of the readings and rituals were laid out so nicely for you to choose or draw inspiration from. She talked me through how to run the rehearsal, which was a huge help. The day of the ceremony she was perfectly on time and was a calm presence while everyone was finishing getting ready. The ceremony itself was beautiful and just like we had prepared, our guests kept commenting on how much they enjoyed the ceremony. Katrina is absolutely amazing, and she is SO good at what she does!

    Katrina is a great officiant. She made the ceremony process very easy for my wife and I. She was prompt to all our appointments. She was the greatest person we could have chosen to tell our love story. She is an amazing writer and was always communicative with us throughout the process. I would definitely recommend Katrina for anyone seeking a professional officiant who can create a memorable story for all to hear.

    Katrina was incredible from day one! From the very moment we sat down with her in the initial interview stage for our officiant, we knew the was the one for us. Throughout the planning stages building up to our Wedding day Katrina's professionalism and process was a HUGE help. Katrina truly had the whole thing mapped out while customizing to our wants and needs without missing a beat. NOT TO MENTION the big DAY OF. We had several things come up causing a delay in the ceremony starting on time in a location that is very strict on their time slots. Katrina rolled up her sleeves and jumped right into anything and everything including pinning the boutonniere on the entire Grooms party. The ceremony itself was just amazing, she truly helped create the spirit of the occasion for us and blew us away with the presentation of it. I assure any one reading this, Spoken Heart Ceremonies (Katrina) is the absolute best choice.

    Katrina was a great officiant! She took the time to get to know us and that helped her to talk about us during the ceremony. She provided a ton of helpful information and passages to help us craft a ceremony that represented our ideals and dreams for the future. Everyone who attended our wedding was impressed by the ceremony!

    She 'Gets' You

    Katrina was simply PERFECT for our wedding. Katrina is a head above any of the other officiants we interviewed. You can tell she has a real love of capturing the story of a couple. We enjoyed meeting with her to talk about our relationship and, when we read her write-up, we were both in tears. She just GOT it. We actually got compliments on how personalized and spot-on the ceremony was. I mean, that's impressive! Also, Katrina has the great balance of a persona that can command a room but doesn't take away from the couple. She also helped us work through our name-reveal ceremony (we chose a new last name together) and was unwaveringly patient as we went back-and-forth on our decision on the name.

    Katrina is the best officiant a couple could ask for! She helped us every step of the way to create a ceremony which was meaningful, personal, and unique to us as a couple. Almost every single guest we spoke to at the reception and our brunch the next day mentioned how much they loved our ceremony. We loved working with Katrina and will cherish our ceremony forever.

    Katrina was an awesome officiant! From our very first meeting, I knew we were in good hands. She creates a ceremony that is truly representative of you as a couple with a lot of opportunity for customization as well as guidance when you need it. Katrina had copies of our vows and tissues on hand at the ceremony and also took care of mailing in our marriage license. Everyone has been telling me how much they loved our ceremony and how personal it was.
    Funny story though: The day of the wedding, not even 20 minutes before the ceremony started, we figured out that Katrina had been my husband's freshman English teacher in high school! It was just one of those "small world" moments that made everything that much more special since my husband and I met in high school.

    Katrina was very welcoming and helpful in putting together the best ceremony for us. She provided a template and we were able to add, remove, and substitute what we wanted. My husband and I eloped at Chapel Dulcinea and we were running a little later than expected day off. Katrina wasn't phased and was there to welcome us once we arrived. I would highly recommend her!

    My (now) husband and I had no clue how to approach writing our vows; planning a wedding by searching for venues and vendors was one thing, but we were pretty clueless when it came to the ceremony portion of a wedding. This is where Katrina stepped in to help us out. There were several officiants we had been reading reviews on and speaking with, but in speaking with and meeting with Katrina, we felt she was the perfect officiant for us. She is super organized and has a set process to help couples with writing vows and planning their ceremony for the big day. This was SUPER helpful for us as she has readings, rituals, vows, etc. all laid out and you could pick and choose what to use, or you could opt to write your own. My husband and I love each other very much, but when it comes to putting lovey-dovey words together on paper, we weren't quite sure what to say/write. Needless to say, we both were relieved to have Katrina's help and were able to find readings and vows that suited our personalities and sentiments from her handy arsenal. It also didn't hurt that Katrina was an English teacher, and word-smithing came like second nature to her. :)

    Overall, we were very, very, very happy to have had Katrina as our officiant. She was a pleasure to speak with and was punctual. She knows what she's doing. The ceremony was beautiful and we received so many compliments on it. So many of our friends and relatives (and even our photographer) told us how they loved the ceremony and how it was the sweetest they've ever heard. I didn't think I would tear up during the ceremony, but I did. We were so happy to have had a wonderful experience with Katrina and couldn't recommend her more!

    Mmmm!! My heart is so happy. Katrina could not have been more Heaven Sent! My Husband and I booked Katrina on a Wednesday evening for our Elopement that same week on a Friday! She agreed to HIKE up to the Pennybacker Bridge Overlook to marry us and it was MAGICAL! I did not want to use a Judge and Court. It seemed unaligned with my truth and my stand for Love and "Forever Honeymoons" so finding someone to marry us that had the same beliefs and values of Life, Spirituality, and Love was definitely a Blessing.

    Katrina, thank you so much for your Loving energy, Truthful and Loving words, and for living your passion! We are so grateful for you!

    Katrina went above and beyond any expectations that we had. Everything leading up to the ceremony was obviously carefully planned and her communication with every step was impeccable. She gave us guidelines to create our own personal and intimate wedding, while also encouraging and incorporating our specific changes. Even after the ceremony, she sent us a surprise gift in the mail for our future anniversaries . We felt she had genuine passion not only for our wedding day but also for our relationships foundation. We would recommend Katrina to anyone and everyone!

    I cannot say enough about Katrina, from the very beginning the communication was easy and flowed naturally. We live in San Diego so had to Skype with Katrina at first and she was so great, we fell in love with her after our first conversation. She made sure to meet with us when we were in town preparing for the wedding to write our story which she told so beautifully, it was such a special interaction going over our relationship in detail and sharing it with someone who just met us, she captured the essence of our relationship perfectly; sometimes funny, sometimes serious, but overall loving and joyful. Creating the ceremony was so fun to do and all of her suggested readings, rituals, vows etc were beautiful, it was hard to pick our favorite, but ended up piecing it together with some of her ideas and our own writings. So many people came up to us after the ceremony was over and asked how I found Katrina and that it was one of the best ceremonies they have ever attended, they even said it made them look at their relationship and pulled at their own heart strings. I am so grateful for finding Katrina and couldn't have imagined a better officiant to stand by us on our special day. THANK YOU KATRINA FOR EVERYTHING YOU DID FOR US!

    Katrina was incredibly helpful with creating the perfect ceremony for me and my husband. We struggled with finding the right words to express ourselves and she scheduled a meeting with us to have an "interview" which was almost theraputic. She took our stories and humor and created a masterpiece. She is personable, creative, professional, and well, she's just really good at what she does.

    Katrina was PERFECT. We could not have asked for a better officiant. We originally wanted someone that we knew personally to marry us and were pretty nervous when we realized we were going to have to go another route. Katrina quickly became part of our family. She read us both so well and wrote the most touching and personal ceremony for us. We had a few non-traditional elements to include, and she did not bat an eye. Katrina was simply perfection.

    Katrina is THE BEST! She spent an incredible amount of time working with us to make sure that our ceremony would be personal and perfect!. She was professional, personable, flexible, and was even early to our wedding. I am a local wedding photographer, and as such, have experience with many different officiants. I can tell you that Katrina is the best of the best! Book her NOW...you won't be disappointed!

    Katrina is absolutely the best.

    When we began to plan our wedding, my wife and I quickly realized that we needed to find somebody special to perform the ceremony but had no idea where to begin.

    Then late one night, while googling through Austin celebrants on my phone, I came across Katrina's page. Her style and philosophy spoke directly to me, and when my wife woke up, she agreed.

    When we first met with Katrina, our positive impressions were confirmed. She has a lovely heart and personality. Katrina quickly put us at ease - asking all the right questions and helping us develop the perfect ceremony.

    Every time my wife and I read through the ceremony in advance, we would start crying, and the wedding itself was no exception.

    It was a truly beautiful ceremony that we will never forget, and we couldn't have done it without Katrina.

    Not only did Katrina help us better articulate our love for each other, but we made a new friend and had fun in the process.

    Thank you so much!!!

Katrina took the time to meet with us, listen to our story, and make the ceremony about us. She had a great information packet and ceremony ideas and we really got to custom tailor it to fit us. It was just what we wanted. Thank you Katrina

    Katrina was exactly what we were looking for! We met once and person and got to know her and she got to know us. She is very professional and personable. She really listened to our story and what was important to us about our relationship. She is very organized and guided us towards our perfect ceremony! Even when I added a last piece to the ceremony about 20 minutes before we walked down the isle she was flexible and talked through some options with me. The ceremony was just wonderful, she is was amazing. Every word was spoken with such meaning that I think that is what really made it special . Katrina truly cares about the couples and it really shows. I would highly recommend her to all couples getting married!

    Katrina was amazing, we couldn't have asked for a better officiant. She did a really great job of getting us to open up to her when telling her about ourselves and our relationship. She then comes up with a "couple's story" that she reads as part of the ceremony. The first time she read it back to us we both wanted to cry. It's strange hearing your story and why you love each other put into words, but I'm so glad that she does this. It was so unique! I've never been to a wedding where the ceremony was so personal. There is nothing cookie-cutter or generic about Katrina's ceremonies. She was extremely easy to work with and always prompt when responding to emails and questions. I would book her again in a heart beat, and I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend her to anyone getting married in the Austin area.
