  • Carrie was the perfect officiant for our wedding! We met her before hand to talk about the ideas we had to see if she would work with us, and all three of us connected immediately! Carrie was professional and personal, which is exactly the type of officiant we wanted. Carrie also allowed us to customize our ceremony with an Unbreakable Vow based hand fasting segment within our ceremony which made it more personal for us. It was a beautiful ceremony and we were so glad to have Carrie with us on our special day! Our families enjoyed her presence as well, and overall she was just a wonderful addition to our day. I highly recommend her to everyone looking to get married! You will not be disappointed, she is lovely!

  • We used Carrie to officiate our wedding in August. The first time we met her we knew within the first few minutes that she was the one to marry us. Every idea she presented to us was perfect for both of us and our beliefs. The vows, readings, and ceremony was perfect for us. Carrie added an extra special touch to our whole day with her calming and joyful presence. We had so many compliments on Carrie and our beautiful ceremony, I have already shared her information with others more than once. I would recommend her to anyone for any kind of ceremony. Thank you Carrie for bringing the love and peacefulness to our wedding with your beautiful spirit and speaking all the beautiful words that fit us perfectly. We could not of asked for anything more. We are greatful we found you. Lots of love to you. Tim and Lori Glover

    Dear Lori and Tim - Thank you for the kind words. It was lovely to share a couple of Native American Indian blessings, include your family and friends in a Ripples Intersecting ceremony, and have a Sand Ceremony for the two of you. I hope you enjoy sharing the bottle of wine while reading the letters you wrote to each other on your anniversary. It was just delightful to work with you to create a unique ceremony that suited the two of you. Love to you - Carrie MaKenna, Ordained Ceremony Officiant

  • Carrie was a wonderful addition to our wedding day. We met together in person twice to craft a ceremony, and loved having her resources and expertise to help us figure out what we wanted and give some structure to our nebulous ceremony ideas. We had her help us run our rehearsal as well and she was fantastic at keeping everything efficient and organized with our large bridal party. The ceremony was beautiful and many of our guests were asking for her information by the end of the day! Would absolutely recommend Carrie to help anyone celebrate their wedding day!

    Oh my goodness Kelsie & Tony - Thank you for the kind words. I'm so glad you chose me to officiate your wedding at the Denver Botanic Gardens. It was absolutely my pleasure. Love to you both - Carrie MaKenna, Ordained Ceremony Officiant

  • We chose Carrie to marry us because she performs spiritual ceremonies which was important to us. Carrie married Jeff and I in our backyard in June 2018 and she made the ceremony easy, stress-free, and fun! She has a great sense of humor and zen energy. Highly recommend! Thanks again, Carrie!

  • Carrie MaKenna was amazing at our wedding- she helped us write the ceremony, had so much experience with a huuuuge variety of traditions . I appreciated her flexibility and we wrote out a fully customized secular (non-religious) ceremony that was still steeped in tradition, great balance. Best part was that she spoke so well it actually enhanced our ceremony-particularly one poem reading she did for us- which became my favorite poem after hearing her read it during the wedding for us (i originally included the poem because it was my mom’s favorite but I wasn’t particularly attached until that moment at the altar listening to her read it) I had a long, detailed review written out with all the best points covered but it was too long and this system didn’t allow me to submit something that long. Wish I could five the full glowing review she absolutely deserves!

    Dear Kara and Collin - I loved helping you create a unique and wonderful ceremony especially designed for you. Thank you for the glowing words of appreciation. It means the world to me. Love to you both - Rev. Carrie MaKenna

  • As the mother of the bride, Carrie’s calm and professional presence was welcome and reassuring. On the day of the wedding she stepped in at just the right moments to make sure certain critical details were attended to. That she genuinely cared about the bride and groom and our guests was evident. She added so much to the day. She miraculously managed to be unobtrusive yet integral and involved on many important levels. Thank you, Carrie, for making the day even more special!

    Aww Leigh Anne - Thank you so much for the kind words. it means the world to me. I'm so glad you felt I helped make the day run smoothly. That is certainly one of my goals. Rev. Carrie MaKenna

  • Carrie was a pleasure to work with. She helped us plan our ceremony and offered some really nice vows and quotes that we used. We had a very small wedding in the mountains with only a handful of guests. Carrie really helped to make this a special day for us. I would definitely recommend her.

    Dear Rose and Tony - It was my pleasure to serve you and help you create the ceremony and experience that suited the both of you to a tee. Thank you - Rev. Carrie MaKenna

  • Carrie was the officiant at our wedding. I am a Christian and my husband, although raised as a Catholic, is now a self titled agnostic. Carrie did a beyond wonderful job with our ceremony. I was extremely concerned that whomever we chose to marry us, would not be able to blend my spiritual beliefs into a ceremony, that would not be uncomfortable for my husband. After our first meeting, I was totally assured that the ceremony would be the one thing, I wouldn't need to be anxious about. Carrie's calm and reassuring nature put me at ease. The ceremony was a perfect flowing blend of both my husbands beliefs and mine. The ceremony was beautiful!!! Thank you Carrie

    Aww Susan and Bud - It was so sweet to work with you to help you create a ceremony that satisfied both of you while, celebrating your unique and special relationship. Thank you for having me as your Wedding Officiant - Rev. Carrie MaKenna

Carrie took the time to get to know us and that meant a lot to Chris and I. The words we chose for our ceremony, Carrie put together beautifully and that made our ceremony perfect. We will always remember your words of comfort that made our day more at ease. Thank you Rev. Carrie for making our day blessed and special to us.

  • Carrie was great to work with for our wedding. Our first in-person consultation with her was very thorough; with her learning about us, our preferred wedding style, telling us about her experience and her giving suggestions for blessings, ceremonies etc. to be brought used in our ceremony. She was great at our wedding rehearsal- truly taking charge of the event and bridal party, so as the bride I could just relax and walk through the practice. We practiced a few times until all parties were comfortable with their roles and duties. She was early for our ceremony the next day and very prepared. She added impromptu humor (which we wanted) into our ceremony and had a wonderful voice to keep everyone's attention. We would highly recommend Carrie to any couple for their wedding!
