"From the first time we met her, we knew that Karen was the perfect person to marry us. She was warm and friendly, positive and accommodating. She went the extra mile (literally) by driving to our wedding location which was off the beaten path. Karen customized a ceremony that included all of our requests and delivered it beautifully. We are so glad that we chose her to officiate our special day! Five years and two kids later, we still talk about how lovely our wedding ceremony was".

"Karen was so easy to work with, fun, organized, and really made our ceremony special. When she says she's going to do something she follows through. She was very open to personalizing our ceremony to the way we wanted it."
Chris - Blacksburg, VA
Thank you so very much for writing and performing such a beautiful and amazing ceremony. So many people have mentioned to us that it was the most beautiful setting and ceremony they have ever seen. A few have even mentioned that when they get married they would like for you to officiate! Again, thank you for making our day so special and unforgettable. Please take care and keep in touch.

"Karen is great! She is personable, compassionate and understanding - she takes the time to get to know you and your mate before you get married so that she can add that special touch to your day.
Karen is also extremely committed - when the "durecho" blew down a tree trapping her car in the driveway the night before our wedding, she made it her business to find a way to make it to our wedding and marry us. She will not let you down! The same storm left us without power for the microphones and speakers that we were supposed to have ready for her on our wedding day as well. But, Karen gracefully, "rolled with the punches," so to speak - she was able to speak loud enough and clearly enough that everyone in attendance was able to hear her.
Our wedding was so personal and so unique that people *actually* remember it - almost a year later, they still talk about how awesome Karen was and always want to know "where we found her." Most of all, they remember the levity (which was important to us) that Karen bestowed on our wedding. If you are looking for a memorable, personable officiate to make your special day unique (and fun!) - look no further - Karen is the one!"

We really enjoyed the wedding service and ceremony you put together. We had no idea that the ceremony was as important as it turned out to be. We still receive a lot of remarks about the outstanding job you did. Happy Holidays!
Thank you so much,
Jim and Angela - Bedford, VA
You amazed us, and every one of our guests with the beautiful ceremony you created. We appreciated your personalizing every detail and making it a wedding that spoke to our hearts. Thank you for helping to make this a memory of a lifetime!

Thank you so very much. The setting was incredible and what seemed at first to us like a simple elopement turned into a day filled with wonderful memories and a lifetime of love.
Thank you so much for all your efforts!

"The way you wove our selves into the ceremony and the way things played out was nothing but magical. You are gifted in your ability to take what is us and turn it into words."
Tony - Roanoke, VA
Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful ceremony for us! I'm sorry this is coming so late--it's been a bit of a whirlwind since the wedding. So many people asked about you and how we found you, and so many people complimented us on the ceremony. Thanks again! You were awesome, exactly what I wanted; it really surpassed what I expected.

"Karen was the officiant for our wedding on June 30, 2012. We originally met her at another wedding in 2010, and we were so impressed with her ceremony. When we became engaged, we knew we would have her as our officiant. My husband and I are from two different cultures and religions, so it was important for us to capture traditions from both sides and find someone who was willing to work with us. Karen did an exceptional job on writing our ceremony based on our values, beliefs, and histories. She met with us numerous times prior to the wedding to ensure that everything was according to our expectations. I would highly recommend Karen as your officiant. She is very professional, caring, funny, and easy to work with."
Becky - Vinton, VA
Thank you so much for marrying us! I canít tell you how happy we were about the ceremony. It was exactly what we wanted and more. It couldnít have been more special. Thank you for all your hard work leading up to the day and for the beautiful job you did on Sept.6. I am so happy we will always be able to go back and read the words again in our binder. You helped us to create, plan and experience one of the most special times and series of moments in our lives. We felt so present and focused. How magical to have you help us communicate our love for each other and then to transform it into something newly built from all the love and companionship of the past. It is wonderful to now be husband and wife and I hope we meet you again and share some more time together.

"Karen provided us and all of our guests the most memorable wedding ceremony ever known. She spent quality time getting to know us as a couple prior to our big day. Karen brought our story to life in her delivery. Our guests laughed, cried, and raved endlessly after the ceremony on how they had never in their lives experienced a ceremony so personal and amazing. This will never be forgotten and it's all thanks to the amazing attention to detail we hoped for. Karen exceeded every expectation and made our ceremony and vows to one another perfect! Absolutely the best Officiant!"
