Stephanie · Married on 04 of August of 2018
Friendly, warm and professional
Karen (Kes) is an excellent officiant. We had a lovely experience using her services for our backyard wedding. She made an in-depth inquiry into who we are as individuals and as a couple so that she could give us a ceremony that felt natural, flowing, and in alignment with what we wished to convey to our friends and family about our love story and our commitment to each other. Karen is warm, thoughtful, reliable and professional. She was easy to work with, did a great job of laying out the structure of the ceremony and then stepping back and allowing us to edit and make changes so that it was personal and the emphasis was on our voice as a couple. We were happy to work with her and would readily recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant that can deliver a unique, customized ceremony.

Karen put together a family blending celebration for our son’s engagement. She worked with both sets of parents to create a fun and joyful announcement during a summer BBQ with family and friends. It was awesome!Sent on 13/07/2018

Amazing, personal and super fun
We had such a fun experience with Kestrel. She really made our ceremony into exactly what we wanted. We got to know her and her husband really well while we worked together on our special day, they came to our house a few times and had tea while we wrote and organized our ceremony. They even stayed and drank with us for a while after the wedding! I totally loved the experience, Kes was fun, personal, open to our ideas, and suggestive of her own. I couldn’t have asked for more. The only setback we had was a tiny spelling error on the certificate itself, but that was very quickly corrected and we had no trouble filing our marriage at the registry.Sent on 30/11/2019
Honestly, we can’t say enough good things about Kes. She was just what we needed in our lives.
Tidal Ceremonies's reply:Thank you Jennifer. It was such a blessing to support the journey your family made this summer. I am so happy we are remaining friends!
