  • We had hired Kim to be our officiant and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice! She was quick in contact and was with us every step of the way. Her kindness was shining bright in every conversation we had. Unfortunately, we had to postpone our wedding due to COVID-19 and Kim was unavailable for our date. We are super sad that we are unable to celebrate our big day with Kim leading the ship, but we are happy we found her none-the-less. If you stumble across Kim as we did, you will not regret it! She is AMAZING!!

    Thank you, McKenzie! I am so sad to not make your postponed date, and I know that your day will be beautiful! Best wishes to you two!

  • We decided to surprise our parents with a small ceremony to get legally married before our bigger destination wedding, and Kim was responsive and flexible from the beginning. When it took us 2 hours extra to get there due to traffic, she was on the phone with us being extremely understanding and flexible for the time that evening. She even offered to meet us the next day, but we ended up making it that evening so she waited extra time for us. She was sweet and extremely well spoken, and she didn’t rush through the ceremony despite having other plans she had to get to immediately after. Would highly recommend Kim, as I’m sure she could do any kind of wedding since she pulled off making ours special!

    This wedding was one of the most fun and special ceremonies I've had the honor of being involved with! So grateful to be asked (and see your parents' faces! "No, seriously, we're getting married right now!).

  • Kim was great! Reading other reviews about Kim made us excited to meet her. We immediately connected with her energy and knew she would be a perfect addition to our special day. Kim's words and delivery during our ceremony were beautiful and perfectly reflected our love for each other. She's truly special! We're forever grateful to know her.

  • We loved working with Kim for our wedding day! When we met her we were so nervous because we didn’t know what type of ceremony we wanted. She explained how the ceremony would be and sent us examples of readings, prayers, and vows. She was so helpful and comforting. She allowed us to create the ceremony that we wanted and helped along the way! Thank you Kim for helping make our day so special!

    I'm glad that the nervousness of the unknown went away in the midst of planning. Thank you for letting me be a part of your big day!

  • Rev Kim Hodges did an excellent job communicating and working with us throughout the entire ceremony planning. She has the perfect bubbly and caring personality that we wanted in an officiant. She even FaceTimed us to get to know "our story" to make the ceremony more personal prior to the event. In addition, she did a great job providing us with the expectations and the timeline for the ceremony. I would highly recommend her to others.

    It was so fun being a part of your beautiful beach wedding! I loved your attention to detail and including your pup in the pictures. :)

  • We knew we wanted a meaningful ceremony and Kim absolutely delivered! I was uncertain at first about choosing an officiant off of WeddingWire but my doubts were put to rest when I started talking with Kim and realizing she was going to take care of us and create the perfect ceremony. Throughout the process, she was kind and patient, answering all of my questions and coordinating with us when needed. On the big day, she put me at ease with her warm and cheerful personality. We already knew we were going to enjoy our vows and ceremony reading since we had chosen them, but Kim went the extra step and wove significant and unique parts of our story into the ceremony. She made the ceremony special and I can't thank her enough!

    I'm so glad that through our talks you were confident and at peace with how the ceremony would turn out. It was an honor being a part of your beautiful day!

  • I started my search on Wedding Wire for an officiant for my parent's 25th Vow Renewal and did not think I would have much luck. I was so wrong! I knew as soon as I reached out to Reverend Kim that she was the perfect fit for my parent's beach ceremony. The day would not have been the same without her and my mom has not stopped talking about it since. Reverend Kim was an absolute pleasure to work with and we will cherish our special day forever. Her words were incredibly kind and meaningful, she was very responsive in all of our communication, and she felt like family at the ceremony! Thanks so much, Reverend Kim!

    This boardwalk vow renewal was a great one! I love how you all pulled together to surprise and honor your parents! Thanks for letting me be a part of it.

  • Rev Kim was so much more than just a vendor to us. It was so evident that she really cared about who we were as a couple and wanted to make sure that carried through into what we wanted during the ceremony. She was always smiling and bubbly. The experience was so much fun! She made our ceremony very personable and made the crowd laugh. We will forever cherish that special moment June 1, 2019 because of Rev Kim. Thank you!

    I am so thankful that it was everything you wanted! Your crew of family and friends were so fun to work with!

  • Reverend Kim married my husband and myself back in April and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! We met multiple times before the wedding and we're able to get some essential premarital counseling. Kim was always warm, welcoming and understanding. She guided us through some tough opticals that came up weeks before our big day. We were facing the possible loss of a loved one and Kim was right there the entire time guiding us through our emotions and all the "what-ifs". She also did an incredible job with our ceremony. We had structures that crashed in the middle of the ceremony and almost hit my bridal party and without hesitation, Kim made a joke we laughed and kept on rolling! She performed our ceremony better than we could have ever imagined! I HIGHLY recommend her for your wedding! O promise it will be the easiest decision of the whole wedding process (except for saying "I do"!!!)

  • Kim was fantastic! We felt so comfortable with her as our officiant. She guided us in creating a wedding ceremony that was our style, really made an effort to get to know us during our Skype session together, and tailored the ceremony to who we are as a couple. She was considerate enough to ask us what she should wear for the ceremony, knowing full well that she would feature in many of the photos our photographer would capture during the ceremony. Kim was calm and commanding during the ceremony, making both of us feel at ease during the ceremony. She was also willing to share the spotlight and let my Dad lead everyone in an opening prayer. She also took care of all of the paperwork and sent in our marriage license for us so we could enjoy our moment right after the ceremony and the first days of our marriage. Kim was excellent and we highly recommend her!

    It was my honor to be there and celebrate with you both! I loved the touch of live music! Here’s to many more years of happiness!

  • We hired Rev. Kim Hodges right here on Weddingwire. Communication and booking was easy. She was responsive and available for any questions we had prior to our wedding day. Then there was the ceremony. She crafted the perfect script based on our story and preferences. Her personality is amazing and helped create the perfect wedding day. My wife and I are vendors in the wedding industry and will put Kim at the very top of our list for wedding officiants we recommend. Thank you Kim!

    Thank you! It was such a fun first-time experience to officiate on a boat! I'm so happy for the two of you finding one another and merging families. Best wishes!
