    Perfectly personal and heartfelt

    Cathy was so amazing while working with my husband and I on our ceremony. She really made the effort to get to know us both right from our first meeting and then dove deeper throughout the whole process. We feel so honored to have had her do our ceremony. The ceremony she curated was heartfelt, and even our guests could feel it. We had so many compliments from those present in person and even through our video stream! It felt so perfectly us and we are so thankful to have found her. We cherish our booklet which was especially helpful when reading it to my grandparents who couldn't make it/are not tech savvy enough to have watched the stream. It was like they were there with us and gave us the opportunity to relive that magical day.

    Thank you so much Cathy!

    Beautiful Ceremony

    We hired Cathy a couple years prior to our wedding date, as we had begun the planning process prior to the pandemic. Of course, like many other couples, we ended up postponing. Cathy was INCREDIBLY accommodating throughout the entire postponement process and beyond. When our wedding day finally arrived, Cathy officiated the most BEAUTIFUL and SENTIMENTAL ceremony we could have ever asked for. Everything that we had asked her to include she did, and the love story aspect which was a surprise was the highlight of the day! She had the audience as well as myself and my fiancé laughing up a storm, but between the laughter were so many happy and special moments. We received multiple compliments on how our ceremony was one of the best our guests had been to and that was all thanks to Cathy!
