    Beyond our wildest dreams!

    You 100% should book with Kristen! She is, by far, the most genuine, sincere, caring and loving Officiant and person we have ever met.

    She truly made our wedding ceremony unforgettable and we are beyond grateful to her.

    She was so welcoming to our guests, so kind and respectful of our wishes and encouraged us along our journey to become husband and wife.

    Our guests had nothing but the kindest words of praise for her and the way she conducted our ceremony!

    Thank you does not even come close to what we would like to say to Kristen. Honestly, if you have the pleasure of having her as your Officiant, you should count your lucky stars for she is one in a million!

    With much love and respect!
    - Patrick & Ashley

    So grateful!

    My husband and I could not be more pleased with the experience we had with Kristen as our officiant. Kristen was incredibly sweet, helpful, clear, and thoughtful. Kristen was helpful in explaining her services in our initial phone call, and took the time to get to know us at our first meeting. Kristen was engaged in learning about our story, our vision, our families, and our hopes for the day. Kristen was there to facilitate the rehearsal dinner, and came early to the ceremony. Kristen was independent in getting everything ready while us as the bride and groom were running around preparing ourselves. She has a beautiful speaking voice, and wrote such an amazing version of our story. She connected with our family and talked to many of our guests on both the night of the rehearsal and ceremony. We feel so lucky to have had her to do the personal ceremony of our dreams. Our guests said it was the most beautiful ceremony they'd seen and that Kristen was amazing!

    Best Ever! Kristen to Wed!

    I cant say enough about Kristen Olynick! She was amazing! She made our wedding unique and very special. She customized our ceremony to reflect who we are as a couple and helped us to create vows that were relevant to our lives as well as to sound nice. I loved her suggestions which helped to make our day even more special, like our Wine box ceremony after our vows. If you are lucky enough to be wed by Kristen, your marriage is off to a great start!

    Kristen Olynick's reply:

    Sarah & Spencer....thank you so much for your beautiful words! You two are so much fun & you couldn't get more in the moment.... cause you two live that way everyday! Keep laughing....xoxo

    Kristen was one of the best decisions I made when it came to my wedding! She was personable and very professional... she made me feel relaxed and comfortable every time we talked on the phone or met up in person. You can tell she really cares and treats every wedding as if it was her own! She personalized our ceremony and really made it about my partner and I... which is exactly what we wanted! And... all of our guests LOVED her! I received comments like "that was the best ceremony I have ever witnessed!" I was still hearing really positive comments weeks after the wedding about Kristen! I would recommend Kristen in a heartbeat to anyone... and did I forget to mention how beautiful she is? ;)

    Kristen Olynick's reply:

    Jason & Olivia.....your wedding is forever etched in my memory....how beautiful it was & how precious for me to be with you & share your wedding day with you. Celebrating you two...always! xoxo

    Our wedding officiant, Kristen, was outstanding! Kristen took on the challenge of adding some Spanish to our wedding ceremony and it was way beyond what we asked for. She really did an amazing job and our Spanish-speaking guests were delighted. Kristen took care of us from the start and made everything go so smoothly and stress-free. We were able to personalise a lot of things for our ceremony and it made it extra special. We feel lucky for having Kristen be a part of our wedding day. She is awesome!

    Absolutely Wonderful!

    Kristen Olynick was absolutely wonderful! We could not have asked for anyone more perfect to officiate our special day. She made our ceremony easy to plan and responded very quickly to emails. She did an amazing job customizing our ceremony and the flow and length was perfect! My husband and I were extremely nervous the day of, but Kristen's warm, calming presence put us both at ease. Thanks to her, our ceremony will always be an unforgettable, special moment for us

    Kristen was an incredible officiant to work with right from the get go! Arranging our first meeting was super easy as she was very flexible with when and where we could meet. When we first sat down with her in person, it was like she was a long lost friend! Both my (now) husband and I couldn’t believe how comfortable we felt inviting Kristen into our relationship.
    Over the next few months Kristen was immensely helpful in walking us through how a ceremony comes together. She answered all of our questions and really listened to what we wanted, plus, she ran our rehearsal like a super friendly, super sweet drill sergeant which was EXACTLY what we needed!
    The ceremony was completely perfect. We wouldn’t have changed a word. It made both of us laugh and both of us cry and it was just so “us.” We’re still hearing compliments from our guests weeks after the wedding!
    We couldn’t have been happier with our experience and will be recommending Kristen to anyone we know getting married in the future!

    Kristen was so lovely! Her bright and bubbly personality made her so pleasant to work with. She sent us over a draft of her ceremony so that we had a framework to work within and could totally customize our vows. It was a good experience and our vows ended up being exactly what we wanted to say (and nothing that we didn't want said!)
