  • My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Carolyn for our wedding just this past October. It was a small and intimate wedding and Carolyn made it better than I could’ve imagined. She was so supportive and flexible with our time. We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant and I would recommend her to anyone!

    Heather, Thank you for taking time to offer your review....It means a lot to me. It was also my pleasure to plan with you toward your wedding day and St Croix Woodlands was a lovely venue for all of us. I wish you every happiness, Carolyn

  • Officiant Carolyn Germaine was instrumental in providing the generosity of knowledge, spirit and thoughtfulness to my backyard wedding. Without her help and professionalism, our simply beautiful wedding service would never have come together. The garden was lush with late summer flowers and fruit which suited the bounty and fertility of the days event. Covid prevented compromised relatives from attending, but the Zoom camera brought the garden wedding to them in an intimate surrounding. Just what was needed to make this a memorable event. Thank you Carolyn!

    Louise, The intimate wedding we planned together was completely of the heart and I appreciated our time together. Carolyn

  • Choosing Carolyn to officiate our wedding was one of the first and easiest choices we made in planning. From the beginning, Carolyn provided guidance on the ceremony and venue, making sure all the details were in place. We absolutely loved our personalized, intimate ceremony.

    Callie, Thank you for making my officiating experience one that I will always hold close to me. You are a lovely couple with such a promising future together. I was fortunate that our paths crossed so I could officiate for your wedding day! I am grateful, Carolyn

  • Carolyn Germaine, from Grand Avenue Wedding Officiants, was supper quick to respond to my mid October query. As the mother of the Bride, she explained her services, timeline, fees and gave me helpful recommendations for wedding locations to consider because of covid. She followed up with me during our decision making process. Then made arrangements with my daughter and her fiancee for a pre-ceremony survey, an interview to hear about their wants and needs including a suggestion to them on writing their vows. Carolyn and I were in regular communications leading up to the wedding day. Due to covid, she helped us to pivot to an outdoor location not far from her office for the ceremony. She arrived on time, as planned, for a beautiful and bright afternoon. The newlyweds, my husband and I were so happy to have been escorted though this journey with confidence, trust and very fond memories. Thank you Carolyn!

    And thank you for taking time to offer these words. I appreciated your thoughtfulness each step of the way. Not every couple has time to plan the details of their wedding day and your commitment to plan with me to create the most lovely wedding experience for them was a joy for both of us.

  • From the moment we first contacted Grand Avenue Wedding Officiants we were impressed. Carolyn Germaine got in touch with us quickly and was extremely accommodating to our needs & requests. The wedding ceremony she preformed was far beyond anything we had ever hoped for. Every single one of our guests commented on what a lovely job she did and asked how we found her. Our day would not have been much of anything without her support, guidance, and lovely ceremony. A day we’ll never forget!

  • Carolyn Germaine was not only extremely detail-oriented, organized, and a timely communicator, but she made us feel comfortable and valued. She incorporated our love story into the custom ceremony that she wrote for us, and she made it very personal by asking us questions and gaining insights through the personality test that she offered. Because of her vast experience, she was able to guide us through the decisions necessary for our ceremony, many of which we hadn’t considered. The final decision was always ours, and she shared the wording of the ceremony with us, so we knew exactly what would be said. Even at that point, she encouraged us to make any adjustments. Carolyn offers a free consultation, and we highly encourage you to meet her. After our initial consultation, we knew instantly that we had found our officiant. Although we could have used Skype, we gladly drove two hours to meet with her. On our wedding day, the ceremony was flawless. Carolyn’s outstanding speaking voic... Read more

  • We were married on a cold November day, but Carolyn warmed our hearts with an amazing personalized ceremony. We could not have asked for anything more. Carolyn truly captured who we were as individuals, and who we had become as a couple. Even now, remembering the words that Carolyn spoke bring smiles to our faces. She did an exquisite job of including the aspects of faith that were important to our families, while building on the foundations of compassion, generosity, and respect that we hold as ideals. The pre-marriage work that Carolyn assigned, as well as our various face to face workshops, were beneficial to our relationship and felt like no work at all. Instead, it showed us a new way to connect that we still use in everyday practice. Carolyn and Grand Avenue Wedding Officiants were unparalleled, and after our first meeting with Carolyn, we knew we had to work with her on our ceremony. Her commitment to her couples is outstanding - if you choose Grand Avenue Wedding Offici... Read more

  • Carolyn officiated our wedding in New Richmond, WI on 10/13/18 and she was truly incredible to work with! Our friends and family all complimented on how beautiful the ceremony was, in large part to Carolyn's beautifully written words and how she really took the time to get to know Ben and myself before the wedding. We spent several sessions with her reviewing how we wanted the ceremony laid out and she took everything we said into consideration and made sure we were happy with how things would be said or done! I would highly recommend her to anyone!!

  • Carolyn officiated our wedding on 9/28/2018 at Hope Glen Farm on a gorgeous fall afternooon! It was an honor and pleasure to work with Carolyn leading up to and the day of our wedding! Her ability to capture the essence of who we are as individuals and as a couple in culmination of our past, present and future and crafting/weaving those pieces together to tell our story was astounding. She made the process reflective and fun. it was not a passive experience but very much an active collaborative effort to create a ceremony that was sincere, heartfelt and memorable. Carolyn took the time to know us and our guests and made everyone feel welcomed (we had a secular ceremony but she could still resonate with all backgrounds). We highly recommend Carolyn as a wedding officiant!

  • Kjersti is incredible. From the moment we contacted her, she was welcoming and accommodating to our schedule (we lived out of state at the time). Kjersti provided us with a personalized, hand-written ceremony that was everything we could have asked for. Throughout the planning process, Kjersti also provided enlightening exercises that allowed my husband and I to learn more about one another. We had several compliments on our ceremony, and even had guests ask if our officiant was a relative. I believe that goes to show how dedicated Kjersti is to her clients and to providing them with a personalized experience. She spends time getting to know her clients. I’ll be honest in saying that we were sad that our time with Kjersti had come to an end. I cannot recommend her enough. She is fantastic!
