  • Far and away the best part of our wedding, and the part we keep getting compliments and have guests bring up over and over, was our ceremony, and Rev Kate was a huge part of that. She worked with us from the time we booked her right up to the minutes before to make sure that our ceremony was tailored exactly to us. She gave us plenty of options to adjust how spiritual/not, traditional/personal, classic/quirky we wanted the ceremony to be, and got to know us to make our ceremony exactly about us. We HIGHLY recommend her!!

  • Reverend Kate Adamson was a pleasure to work with. She is very detailed and passionate about making sure her clients have the most special ceremony for their wedding. Our guests were all impressed by our ceremony and that Kate created a very welcoming, connecting environment that made everyone feel included. Kate’s professional, relaxed demeanor made it easy for us to discuss what we wanted out of our ceremony. We loved trading stories of how we each met our partners, and what we find special about them. Kate has a catalog of poems/passages that she loved sharing with us to help us brainstorm our ceremony. We would highly recommend her for any couple looking for a great reverend for their ceremony.

  • Kate was a pleasure to work with. We appreciated her responsiveness, professionalism, and flexibility. We endured a pretty difficult hike to get to the location for our ceremony and Kate had no problem with it. She offered ideas for the ceremony that we loved. I would strongly recommend Kate

  • We postponed our original wedding date, and ultimately canceled our second date when things didn’t shape up. We decided to elope on very short notice, but we really wanted Rev. Kate to officiate. We started talking many months before our original date, and we knew immediately that Kate was the right fit. Without hesitation, Rev. Kate agreed to our last minute plan, hiked with us, created a beautiful ceremony, and even occupied our dog while we took photos! She is full of wisdom and experience, and is more than capable of creating a meaningful ceremony, but was also very clear in how much she valued our input and idea of what we wanted in our ceremony. In short, you can’t go wrong here. We were lucky to have her see us off into this next chapter. Thank you, Kate! Hopefully we canu reconnect in the future. (Morel hunt in VA this spring!?)

  • Rev. Kate married us in the mountains on 11/5/20 during a short, but sweet ceremony. She was very easy to work with and answered all of our questions along the way. She also provided suggestions and guidance based on her extensive experience as an officiant. She catered her statements to us as a couple and was willing to add as much or little religious notes as we wanted. We would definitely recommend Rev. Kate!

  • Reverend Kate was the perfect officiant for our ceremony. From the initial phone call, I knew she was “the one” for our micro wedding in the Shenandoah National Park mountains. Having an officiant you click with is important, considering they are the person uniting you with your love. She was incredibly helpful with providing samples of vows and readings, which helps when you’re short on time! She came out into Shenandoah National Park, freezing cold, stood with our blended family of 6 (our 4 kids participated in the ceremony as well), and united us all as a family. She had suggestions on how to incorporate the kids during the ceremony, which they absolutely loved. Many of our guests complimented her as the “best officiant they had ever seen”. Kate is easy going, flexible, and it’s no secret she loves what she does. You will not be disappointed to have her as the person officiating your wedding.

  • We found Rev. Kate on Wedding Wire and I reached out after reading all her great reviews! She was perfect, was able to talk to me on the phone about her process and eased all my stress! Coming from out of state, my husband and I wanted to find someone that really made our ceremony feel personal and who also included our Christian background. Kate was perfect for this! She worked with us to create our dream ceremony and we received nothing but compliments for WEEKS after the wedding about how great she was. Rev. Kate was there early, and helped to ease all of my nerves and really helped to ground us in the moment so we weren’t just a bundle of nerves up there! HIGHLY RECOMMEND. She will make your wedding day amazing!!!

  • Rev. Kate was the best officiant we could have ever asked for! From the start she talked us through what to expect and what timeline we would follow to get there. We filled out a questionnaire and spoke in person to help her get to know us better and she provided many samples of ceremony order, readings, vows, etc. Little did we know that she would use all of this information to write the most perfect, personalized ceremony! Even when I started crying and kept saying I'm good she made light of the situation and put us both at ease. We received so many compliments on her sweet words and lighthearted humor. Her pricing was perfect for the personalized experience she provided. She exceeded every expectation we had and then some. She made our wedding day absolutely perfect! We highly recommend Rev. Kate to anyone looking for an officiant that will go the extra mile to make your ceremony personalized and perfect.

  • Rev. Kate was exactly what we were looking for in an officiant! We decided to have a small private ceremony with just the two of us when the COVID-19 pandemic postponed our original larger wedding and Rev Kate helped us craft a beautiful ceremony that was personalized to us, gave us advise on writing vows and preformed a lovely wedding. Rev. Kate is so kind and flexible, when additional COVID restrictions caused us to change our location just one day ahead of our ceremony she was not only accommodating to the change, but gave us several alternative location suggestions! Would definitely recommend!

  • Kate did an amazing job officiating our wedding. From the get-go she was instantly in sync with our vision and vibe. Through conversations and meetings with us she was able to put together a personally meaningful service, that included several pieces (readings, handfast, ring warming, community blessing). Was also an invaluable resource in crafting our vows. Would choose Kate 11/10 times.

  • Kate Adamson was awesome! Very professional and responsive. She was ultra knowledgeable and did a wonderful job hitting all the notes we had perfectly. Super sweet and attentive. Her talent is matched by her flexibility. She was able to continue working with us despite the setbacks due to covid-19. Highly recommend.

  • We found Rev. Kate here on Weddingwire. Kate is an excellent communicator, recommended a great spot for our ceremony, flawlessly walked us through our process, and had a very reasonable fee. She was highly receptive to our (in this case, pretty non-traditional) format, and was a pleasure to share our little ceremony with (just my husband and me). She helped us make our wedding experience really special. So happy to have made a new friend in our community - we highly recommend her and couldn't imagine anyone more perfect to have guided us through our special day! Thank you, Rev. Kate!
