    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.

    Family blending

    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!

    Great officiant , to make your day even greater

    Karen was amazing. She was involved from day one, she is very quick to respond to messages. Would one hundred percent recommend her to anyone! She provides anything ranging from traditional ceremonies to unique and new age. We are over the moon with the service that was provided.

    I would absolutely recommend Karen to an couple getting married, renewing their vows, or looking for meaningful ways to celebrate all of life's milestones. Karen writes custom weddings that tell the love story that is the real connection in a wedding ceremony. She works to make sure that nothing goes into a ceremony that you would not want or need, but also includes many options no one else would know to ask about. She is diligent or very detail oriented, warm and kind. You will love working with her.
