  • We were struggling to find someone to serve as officiant and booked Katherine within the last month of planning. We are both pretty indecisive about particulars, and Katherine's preparedness and flexibility really dissolved all of our trepidation in short order. She was able to offer her expertise, work with our desires, and delivered a beautiful ceremony seemingly with ease. I had multiple people tell me it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and she was a large part of it.

  • Rev. Katherine was a comforting and calming influence throughout the planning process and during the ceremony. The video meetings before the wedding were very helpful and set our minds at ease. Her ceremony ideas were thoughtful and fun, and still allowed room for our ideas. Through each step she kept the focus on our love for each other. She was also very prompt, professional and a pleasure to work with.

  • Coming from the East Coast we looked for someone we could work with remotely to design just the wedding we wanted - Katherine was perfect. She was interested in us as a couple, had great suggestions for how to build a ceremony including providing a starting template, and worked with us as we made changes to the ceremony. We were fortunate in that she had been the Officiant at weddings at the Panama Hotel before, and was able to make suggestions regarding the venue. On the day of the wedding she arrived early so we could make last-minute adjustments to the layout, and ran us through a quick rehearsal so that we knew which way to turn and when it was our time to participate. Katherine guided us through the vows we made, so that we didn't have to memorize them, and was a source of support and humor throughout the process of working together and especially during the ceremony. For example, when one of the children insisted on shedding the flowers and then ran behind a nearby plant, we all ... Read more

  • Rev. Katherine was outstanding! Instead of just going off of a standard script, she met with us and discussed the ceremony, then made changes to reflect who we are. Our ceremony was a reflection of our personalities and who we are as a couple. It was funny, heartwarming, and kept our guests entertained, all at the same time. We can't say enough wonderful things about her. HIRE HER, HIRE HER HIRE HER!!!

  • Katherine was just great. We did it in Muir Woods. Katherine knew the Woods like the back of her hand. Highly recommend that, what a great site! She made the ceremony just perfect with just a little effort on our part to make it our own. It was superb, a lovely ceremony we'll remember forever and ever!

  • We are from out of state and our redwoods wedding couldn't have been more perfect; all thanks to Katherine. From our first connection, Katherine made us feel as if we were the only people in the world. Her calming and collected approach provided us with guidance as she lead us through our wedding planning, complete with venue, vows, flowers, photography, vacation cottage and celebration location. She is a spiritual gift. Every aspect was so well done and personal; there isn't a rating high enough to sing my praises for her. If there were 10 star ratings she would need 20!

  • My husband and I could not have been happier with our ceremony. Katherine was really easy to work with. She had all these really wonderful and unique ceremony options that helped add a personalized touch to our ceremony that really made it feel personalize. She's also a wonderful writer--every part of the ceremony was so thoughtfully thought through and really spoke to everyone about the meaningfulness of marriage. You go through several drafts to make sure your ceremony is perfect, which we really appreciated. Your wedding ceremony is special and truly a once in a lifetime moment and Katherine made it unique and memorable. Many guests came to us and told us how sweet and special the ceremony was for this. She also gave us last minute pointers to make sure we knew exactly what to do and calmed our nerves. We really felt like we were in good hands with someone who truly believed in the power of love and happiness. Thank you, Katherine!

  • Our simple family backyard wedding ceremony was absolutely beautiful and immensely meaningful because of Katherine’s meticulous planning. She made an effort to get to know us ahead of time and walked us through various options for a ceremony that was was completely “us”. Everyone who attended our ceremony commented on how beautiful, casual and fun it was!

  • Katherine was absolutely amazing. From the video call before the wedding, to the follow up emails and then the actual ceremony, she was both professional, kind, and helpful. She helped us customize the ceremony to be exactly what we and our families wanted. During the ceremony she walked us through all of the steps, and helped out my husband when he got nervous saying his part. It was a beautiful ceremony, everyone loved her, and she even dealt with sending in the marriage license.

  • We made the best choice with Katherine. She was easy to work with (we live overseas and so our initial meetings were done via Skype, and the final meeting just before the big day was at her lovely and warm home), giving us a framework and advice, but also total autonomy in crafting our ceremony and vows - ours were very untraditional. On the day, having her calm, confident, and joyful presence was exactly what we needed to cut through the stress of it all. She arrived early and kept me calm and laughing through the waiting for everyone to arrive (we got married on a beach, which was very windy that day! She made it fun and kept me warm, too!) - this is why you want a professional, I had every confidence Katherine would roll with the punches, whatever came our way that day. Her loving energy is just what you want standing with you and your partner on that special day!

  • We met with her at her home in Mill Valley to discuss our ideas for the ceremony. We were incorporating our young adults into the vows as well and she thought of the perfect way to do it. She worked with us to edit the wording so that it was just right. She guided us through during the ceremony and we all felt very comfortable. Our guests thought it was just perfect!

  • I really do not know where to begin. She is is just all around amazing. We had a last minute civil ceremony in Muir Woods, which she was contacted by us only 2 weeks before, and Katherine put everything so fast together, it was amazing. The ceremony was personal, sweet, funny, and perfect. She helped us with endless ideas like where to eat after the ceremony, gathered our wedding group together at the woods as she patiently waited for my late group, and even found the perfect spot for us to get married in Muir woods. She even did a wonderful job saying some phrases in Spanish for us. Our wedding was scheduled on a certain day and it poured that day in the woods, and Katherine moved her whole schedule to accommodate our new date. My husband and I felt such calmness and peace from her as she helped us with our nervousness on our day, that in return made us feel the same. We love her. She was perfect for our wedding, and we are so thankful for all her help, patients, time, and effort.

  • Katherine is extremely flexible and easy going. She caters to the needs of her client with such kindness and professionalism. She went above and beyond to make sure we were prepared and felt confident about our wedding ceremony. She both provides examples of ceremony scripts, but is also very open to input and changes based on the couple. Several of our guests asked us where we found Katherine as they were very impressed with her delivery of the ceremony- and so were we! We give her our highest recommendation.

  • We could not have asked for a better officiant! Katherine was kind, professional, humorous and personal from the first phone call. She was accommodating and offered lots of needed advice. My husband and I were planning on writing our own vows but we ended up liking the ones that she wrote for us so much that we only had to edit a few areas. Many of our friends and family continue to tell us it was the most heartfelt and beautiful ceremony they had ever attended. If you are looking for an officiant who is open, warm and experienced look no further!
