  • I wanted to express my gratitude to Kathy. Kathy made our day absolutely seamless and truly magical, she really captured all the personal touches between myself and my husband. I am so grateful we chose Kathy and would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a beautiful memorable service. Kathy welcomed us with great ideas and a vast wisdom of previous knowledge along with such care and compassion towards the elements of our multicultural wedding. A huge huge thank you so making our day one we will never forget not only for the experience on the day but the added keepsakes your provided us.

  • Kathy was the best officiant I could've ever hoped for!! My mother found her here on Wedding Wire and I'm so glad she convinced me to reach out. Kathy was so accommodating to quickly set up a meeting with us to determine if she was a good fit and my husband and I chose her immediately following that meeting. Kathy showed great hospitality by hosting us in her lovely home to iron out all the details. She was very willing to work with us for our non-religious handfasting ceremony. We were able to add unique elements to our ceremony that our guests really enjoyed. Kathy also emailed back and forth with us several times to ensure everything was perfect. Kathy was super accommodating to our unique venue. We were married on a boat, which meant a much longer time commitment than the average wedding ceremony. This made it more difficult to find an affordable officiant, but Kathy was absolutely perfect! She was there for the entirety of our rehearsal, ceremony, and reception. I would 100%... Read more

  • Kathy prepared our elopement ceremony not as an officiant but as if she was a member of our family. My wife and I married in the presence of an officiant to placate my mother, and Kathy, who is well-versed in many religious and cultural traditions, knew exactly what to do to make her happy. When we did not have a venue for our elopement, Kathy opened up her beautiful apartment, which is just across from the National Cathedral. Her rooftop deck has THE best view in the city; better than the even the Kennedy Center and W Hotel. She preformed an amazing secular ceremony -- but it was multicultural, owing to Kathy's deep knowledge -- for us that she put together in less than one week. Kathy's husband took photos, moved around furniture to accommodate us, and was a very gracious host. After the ceremony, Kathy and her husband opened up their apartment, and allowed us to serve champagne and cake to our five guests. Kathy was also the most reasonably priced officiant we could find in D... Read more

  • Kathy was by far one of the best parts of our wedding experience. We were so lucky to have found her. She guided us and took the time to meet with us well in advance of our wedding, she got to know my husband and I as individuals, what we valued having as part of our ceremony, and provided us with so much in the way of options for different readings and ways to make our day our own. She opened her home to us to discuss final preparations, and she did a phenomenal job the day of the wedding. She also provided us with a copy of our ceremony in booklet form to keep. I cannot say enough great things - you will be so glad you chose to work with her. She will make your day truly one of a kind.

  • We had a great experience with Kathy! We wanted a unique ceremony but did not have anything specific in mind. Kathy met us for coffee and gave us a ton of ideas and helped us build our perfect ceremony. She was very responsive and easy to talk with. She arrived early for our wedding and was willing to go over anything we needed. We ended up doing a hand tying ceremony, she helped us find the cords that we got to keep and she made us a beautiful book with our ceremony inside. The whole experience was wonderful!

  • We really enjoyed working with Kathy. We really had no idea what kind of ceremony we wanted, and that was OK because Kathy gave us a great template to work with and so much other material to choose from. While this was not part of either of our faiths/traditions, we loved the Celtic Knot portion of the ceremony. It was so unique and our families loved it. We had two in-person meetings and that was really all we needed! Overall we had a really nice experience and there was a great value in the cost.

  • Kathy did a wonderful job of blending two different religious backgrounds - Christian and Hindu - to create a beautiful customized ceremony. We really appreciate all of the work that Kathy did - not only just working with us leading up to the ceremony, but on the day of - being well prepared and arriving early to the ceremony site and bringing ceremonial materials. We had accidentally gotten our marriage license in Virginia, instead of Maryland (where we were married) and Kathy was kind enough to come to our home to re-read our vows. She truly goes above and beyond. We really enjoyed getting to know Kathy and spending time with her!

  • Kathy was AWESOME!!! She was full of great ideas, very intuitive and listened to whatever we wanted to convey in our ceremony. We are a blended family (4 kids) and she helped come up with ideas to include them. Even guests commented on her kind, upbeat energy. We are so happy to have found her for our wedding!

  • Kathy was awesome! We fully recommend her as officiant for any couple getting married in VA (or elsewhere). Our wedding was a non-religious ceremony, and we worked with Kathy to come up with something we liked and that felt just right for us. She had some great suggestions, including one unusual thing that we immediately loved - and all our guests thought was the best part of the ceremony. A few weeks before the wedding, she invited us to for a glass of wine at her place to discuss the ceremony (her rooftop by the way has the best views of DC we've ever seen). At the ceremony she made sure everyone felt welcome and that everything went smoothly. The ceremony went perfectly!

  • We loved working with Kathy and are so happy that we choose her to be our officiant! We didn't have a clear vision of what we wanted our ceremony to look like besides it being spiritual and non-religious. Kathy provided us with lots of materials and helped us to create a beautiful and personalized ceremony. Being out of state, Kathy FaceTimed with us on multiple occasions and met with us a few days before the wedding. Kathy is not only a professional with lots of experience, but it’s obvious that she loves what she does. It was such a breath of fresh air to work with someone who was genuinely happy for us. She handled all of the legal details without any fuss too!

  • We had a mixture of an elopement and small wedding. All of our family lives out of town, several states away. We started looking for officiants and found Kathy! She was amazing and professional. She made us feel like family! I will look back out on special day and remember she was part of what the day so great! I highly reccomend her. Thank you again Kathy!!!

  • Working with Kathy on our wedding ceremony was a great experience! She had many unique ideas that made our ceremony personal and she was responsive throughout. We didn't have much of a vision to start with so she provided us with a large package of ideas and it really helped us to find what worked for us. We received many compliments on how thoughtful the guests thought the ceremony was. Afterwards the courthouse misplaced part of our license paperwork and Kathy was extremely helpful and got it all sorted out too!

  • We contacted Kathy 2 weeks before our wedding and we are so glad we did! She got back to me very quickly and we set up a meeting close to our home in Alexandria. Kathy was very kind and welcoming so I instantly knew that she would be the perfect officiant for our wedding. Kathy provided various readings to include in our ceremony and answered all of our questions. On our wedding day, Kathy arrived early and she brought extra materials for our ceremony in case we had forgotten to bring them. I had forgotten to bring the candle for our ceremony but Kathy was prepared! Kathy welcomed us into her home a few days after the wedding to drop off the marriage license and complimented our wedding. She is just amazing at what she does! Kathy’s radiant personality made our ceremony great! Kathy thank you for being part of our special day!

  • We found Kathy about a week before our wedding and we’re so glad we did! She did a wonderful, untraditional ceremony with hand fasting for us that worked perfectly for the sort of ceremony we’d imagined. She obviously knows what she’s doing so will help direct you but is also extremely laid back and flexible, which is exactly what we needed. She clearly loves what she does and her positivity and passion help set the tone for the rest of the day. Thanks so much Kathy!!!
