    Huge thank you

    Katherine at lifetime ceremonies was an absolutely amazing and beautiful person inside and out. She felt like family from the moment we met and was the perfect addition to our special day. She captured the love and warmth and was able to share it with our family and friends. I cannot thank her enough for such a moving and meaningful ceremony execution. Thank you Katherine ❤️❤️❤️

    Perfection.

    Where do I start? Katherine is ahhh-mazing. My now-husband and I met with Katherine and we knew right away she was perfect. She went through all of the ceremony options with us in her SUPER organized binder, and provided us with options we didn't even think about. We added the Celtic hand-fasting tradition to our ceremony, among other heart-felt wording that was so meaningful to both of us. She helped us organize a ceremony that was truly "us" and we can't thank her enough for it. Katherine also provided us with our vows on beautiful paper, which is now framed and hanging on our wall to see every day **cue all the tears**. Thank you for adding so much uniqueness to our day Katherine, you're outstanding. Katy & Nick

    Katherine was perfect!

    Katherine worked with us to tailor our special day to our wants and needs. We had a very unique wedding, and she was on board to make it as special, and as "us" as possible! She was a joy to work with.

    Simply perfect!

    Katherine is so wonderful, she worked with us to build a custom ceremony that worked for both of our families. She speaks very well and clear. All the feedback from our friends and family was positive. The best part was provided us with our vows on beautiful paper as a keep sake and took care of all the after the wedding paper work for us, which really is the best! We had a rehearsal with Katherine as well, which was super helpful. Overall, a great wedding experience with Katherine!! Thank you for making our day perfect!

    Fantastic Officiant

    Katherine officiated my wedding on October 12 2018. She was very responsive, showed up on time, offered very helpful advice, was so patient and calm when I was being pulled all over the place during the rehearsal and day of. She was excellent at arranging everyone for photos and made sure everything ran smoothly. She was exactly the presence I wanted at my wedding and she made the whole ceremony perfect. My only regret was that I didn't have more time to spend with her. I would highly recommend her!

    Perfect officiant for the perfect ceremony

    Katherine was able to help us personalize our ceremony from the start. She provided so many options for readings and poems, while giving her expert advice.
    She preformed a lovely ceremony for us and we got many compliments on how great of a job she did. The ceremony was short and sweet like we wanted. Not a dry eye in the audience. She also stepped aside for any important photo moments which we loved!!We felt very comfortable with her and we’re honoured for her to marry us. Anyone would be lucky to have Katherine officiate their wedding.

    Customizable Humanist Ceremonies

    Katherine truly loves love! She's courteous and professional, and gave us lots of advice. She came prepared to our meeting with tons of resources and answers to our questions. She was responsive over email and made sure everything was good to go for our big day. We're not religious in the slightest, and I've heard horror stories of people who make that clear to their officiant but still end up with content they didn't want in their ceremony... definitely not the case here! Katherine was flexible and encouraging to make sure the ceremony was EXACTLY what we wanted it to be.

    Small Wedding Ceremony

    Katherine was a wonderful officiant! She has such a positive attitude and made everything super easy for us. She has great suggestions and has a warm and poetic way with words. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their officiant.
