  • Karen provided us with the most beautiful and personal ceremony we could have asked for. We got to know Karen over the phone leading up to our wedding, as we were not able to meet in advance due to COVID, but we connected so well and she guided us through the process of planning our ceremony. We changed our plans from a large wedding celebration to a private elopement. We even had to change the location of our elopement ceremony on the day of the wedding due to weather, and through every change in plan, Karen was so flexible and her calm energy made us feel like all was in control. Her ceremony message was beautiful and everything we hoped it would be. Thank you Karen!!

    Thank you so very much Jackie!!! It was wonderful getting to know you and Rahul throughout the planning process and even though there were twists and turns and big changes, marrying the 2 of you was a highlight of my many years officiating! You are 2 amazing people that are incredibly kind and have a magic between you that is a special and wonderful kind of love! I truly hope our paths do cross again!! Best wishes and much love to both of you!!! Karen

  • Rev. Osborne did a fantastic job putting together a beautiful ceremony for us. It was exactly what we asked for: brief, personal, and emotional. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the small group of family we had hoped could join us were not able to travel, but Rev. Osborne worked with us to make sure that, despite the circumstances, we had a ceremony we'd remember forever (in a good way!). She was flexible, patient, insightful about us as a couple, and made us feel at ease.

    Thank you so much Brian! Meeting you and Alba yesterday was a wonderful joy. In the midst of all the fear and worry in the world, I appreciated both of you having the same level of comfort needed in knowing we were being safe, and to be a witness to the beautiful love you have, really touched me deeply. My best wishes!!

  • Karen did a great job officiating our wedding. We wanted a short but sweet nondenominational ceremony and she delivered exactly what we asked for and more. She was very responsive throughout the planning process and provided us with a questionnaire to customize our vows. We received several compliments on how the ceremony was tailored to us as a couple. We highly recommend Karen’s services.

  • Karen was fantastic to work with. My husband and I wanted a ceremony that was original, funny, not super religious and that fit our personality. She exceeded our expectations. She was so creative and incorporated things from our favorite movie Princess Bride and also some readings from Disney movies. Yes, we are big nerds. Karen sent us a copy of her speech/ceremony for me to review and was quick to make any changes that we suggested. The day of our wedding she was just on point and so funny, she ad-libbed things and when we made mistakes, she just went with it. She also just got us. She knew who we were as a couple and seemed to have a great time marrying us despite the cold weather. She really was the icing on top of our amazing wedding day/ceremony. Thank you Karen for making our day so special. We got so many compliments on our ceremony and how original it was and it just captured our personalities and relationship perfectly.

You are incredibly kind, warm, friendly, funny and I wish and hope our paths cross again!!!!! Perhaps free Vow renewals?? I'm up for that (not right now of course!) You 2, I am sure are going to have a wonderful life together and I wish you all the love and happiness in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Big hugs! Karen

  • We knew nothing about weddings when we began planning our ceremony. But we knew we wanted our ceremony to be unique and specific to the people we are. Karen went above an beyond to create something that we will cherish forever and that felt truly like "us". I would absolutely recommend her to anyone planning any type of wedding, big or small!

  • My wife and I had Karen officiate our fall wedding. My wife and I are spiritual and not religious and Karen was able to design a custom ceremony that blew us away! She even went a step beyond and went to where we went on our first date before our ceremony started. We were so pleased with how everything turned out!

    Dear Kristin and Holli, Thank you so very much for your wonderful review!! From the moment I met with both of you I was excited about being your officiant because of the love the two of you share. You are both so incredibly kind and a joy to be around! You are the perfect match for each other!! I really hope that our paths cross again and I wish you all the love and happiness in the world!! Take good care of each other, you are both precious people!! I loved being your officiant! Karen

  • Rev. Osborne is worth her weight in gold. I loved that she took into account what we wanted our ceremony to be and put her touch to make it perfect. She called me almost immediately after I requested information and met in a location convenient for us. Her survey really made us answer questions we had never thought about and helped structure the perfect ceremony. We laughed, cried, and laughed again. I could not imagine our ceremony going any different.

    Thank you so much Jennifer for your wonderful review!! I enjoyed meeting you and Greg so much and I will never forget your wedding day it was amazing!!! The Violinist, the horse drawn carriages and most of all working with the 2 of you to create a ceremony that really reflected who the 2 of you are. I wish we could do it again!! Maybe Vow renewals in the future??? I hope our paths cross again and I wish you all the love and happiness in the world!!

  • From our first phone call with Karen, we knew she would be the one who could give us an amazing ceremony without any mention of religion. And I must say, she delivered an unforgettable ceremony! My guests even complimented me on the beautiful ceremony and how lovely Karen’s personality is. She played every moment off so well, you would’ve thought she orchestrated a butterfly to fly right through the middle of my husband and I! I 100% recommend Karen to anyone needing a ceremony as special as ours was.

    Dear Criz and Tyler, Thank you so much for the honor and the pleasure and for your wonderful review!! I will never forget every detail about your wedding and appreciate your help in making it meaningful to both of you and to your family and friends!! Yes the butterfly helped me too!!! Much love to both of you!!!!! Karen

  • Karen Osborne is a Great choice for a wedding officiant. She was very responsive, professional, and helped us with our ceremony and vows! We got married on the hottest day of the year, and had an outside ceremony. She made sure to keep the readings short so we didn't pass out and the ceremony itself was beautiful. We chose her because she offers a variety of ceremony types, from non-religious to spiritual to LGBT friendly. We were able to customize our ceremony, readings, vows and everything, and she helped us every step of the way. I'd highly recommend her for anyone needing a fun and friendly officiant!

    Thank you so much for your wonderful review Lisa!! I rally enjoyed working with you and Will in creating your ceremony and appreciated your input so much! You are 2 of the kindest people I have ever met and I wish you all the love and happiness in the world! I hope out paths cross again!! Karen

    Dear Pamela and Chris. I thank you so much for your review!!! To see the effort that your family and friends, sons and Chris put in to make your wedding an endeavor of love was really amazing!

  • Karen with Ceremonies For All was a pleasure to work with. She provided a thoughtful script for our ceremony that was tailored to our relationship and worked with us to officiate the best ceremony we could have asked for. She made everything easy and we loved working with her throughout the planning process. At the wedding, she was very cheerful and brought even more joy to an already happy day. We absolutely recommend Karen to anyone looking for an officiant.
