  • 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!?)

  • Kate was great! My husband comes from a Catholic family and I come from a Muslim family. She was the perfect interfaith officiant and worked with us to great a special ceremony with our own new traditions.

  • 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.

  • Rev. Kate was absolutely amazing. We did our correspondence via email and over the phone and the end result was nothing less than outstanding. She was calm and open to any and all ideas. SHE STOOD IN THE RAIN! Seriously, she stood in the rain and though we had to cut some things short performed a ceremony we were proud of. She then went above and beyond to perform the parts of the ceremony, handfasting and tree planting, under the tent since we could not in the rain.

  • Rev. Kate did an amazing job with handling every aspect of our marriage services. She made it feel so comfortable and personal all while maintaining a traditional and professional feel. She took the time to get to know the story behind our relationship and help relay that in our vow exchange. It was perfect!

  • Rev. Kate was wonderful to work with! I found her on Wedding Wire and after reading all the amazing reviews that she has, we set up a phone call to consult with her. She takes the time to get to know you and your partner, so that she can make your ceremony meaningful and personal to you. After our initial phone call, she sent over examples of vows and readings that we could include in our ceremony. We were able to customize everything to make it individually ours! I’m super happy with our choice to include Rev. Kate on our wedding day!

  • Rev. Kate Adamson is a must hire. I cannot express to you enough how beautiful our ceremony was, and the key element to our ceremony was her. I am kind of a type A person; I carefully research and read reviews before doing something as big as hiring our officiant. Let me tell you, you hiring Rev. Kate is the best decision you can make. My husband and I were looking for a couple of different things when deciding on an officiant: We wanted someone who was articulate, not boring (silly but true), not too "religious" but "spiritual" ( was raised Catholic and him Lutheran, though neither actively involved in the church) where all would feel welcome. With Rev. Kate we got that and more. I didn't realize how beautiful and touching a ceremony could be. She got to know us on a personal level first and guided us perfectly into a ceremony that fit us best. Her ceremony was so incredibly touching, thoughtful, intimate, and really followed the mood that both of us were looking for and some thing ... Read more

  • My wife and I decided to get married at the top of a trail in the Shenandoah mountains and were looking for and officiant that would travel and deal with those conditions. Kate seemed more than willing and was very cooperative and even seemed eager throughout the entire process of setting up our wedding and helping us choose the method and process we wanted to go about it. There was even some chaos the night before with weather and coordinating all the people and she dealt with it with grace and ease, helping us feel no pressure or stress at all. She even dealt with the conditions were which were 30° and 40 mph winds. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone.

  • 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

  • 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!
