  • Kitty was incredibly responsive from the first inquiry, all the way through to the wedding day! We ended up having a COVID wedding and Kitty was flexible as we had to relocate from Santa Barbara to Thousand Oaks. We loved all the small details and how well she worked with us on the edits. She is incredibly warm and friendly. I cannot recommend her highly enough!!

  • From our first conversation up until our big day, Kitty was wonderful! She not only was very flexible and receptive to the several tweaks and changes we made to the ceremony draft but also took a last minute request 15 minutes before the ceremony in stride! We cannot express how glad we are to have picked Kitty to share our day. In her case, you do not get what you pay for - you get far, far more! Thank you again Kitty for everything!

  • I cannot imagine a better choice for our wedding officiant than Kitty Ryan of Yes I Do! My husband and I knew we wanted a unique ceremony that reflected our personalities, rather something more traditional and though we had a few ideas, we were unsure of how they might fit into our ceremony. Kitty was not only receptive to our unorthodox approach; she also took the time to get to know our story and helped us incorporate each of our ideas into a beautiful ceremony that flowed naturally and represented us perfectly. After our initial phone meeting, Kitty quickly followed up with a complete ceremony script, offering to revise it as much as we wanted. Knowing that she had another ceremony scheduled right before ours, she even tested the drive between locations in advance to make sure she would arrive on time (she did!). As we planned the ceremony over the next several months, Kitty promptly followed up on every email and created new drafts of our script until each element fit perf... Read more

  • In a city that's known for higher prices, Kitty's rate of $150 was a breath of fresh air. Whereas other officiants I looked into asked for $500 or more, Kitty provided impeccable service before and during my wedding for a fraction of the price. I also love that she donates half of the money she earns from each wedding to a charity of the couple's choice--it's certainly a reflection of how gracious and wonderful she is. Beyond the monetary aspect of her work, Kitty was also very responsive and cognizant of our requests and provided a complete draft of our ceremony long before the day of the wedding. From start to finish, she was easy to get ahold of and bounce ideas off of. It was such a joy to work with her and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone getting married in or near Santa Barbara. She's a true professional and, even more than that, a fantastic person who I am honored to have shared my special day with. Thank you, Kitty!

    Thanks so much Elysia! I do have to correct one thing - I generally donate one third of my fee, not one half. Thank you for your kind review!

  • We contacted her via email and then via phone. She initially spoke to us for about 20 minutes. She asked us some questions about us and how we met and what we wanted for our ceremony. Less than a week later she emailed us a draft of the ceremony, it was just about perfect,. She definitely has a way with words. She met us he day before the ceremony to review the ceremony. On the day of, she was very professional and the ceremony was perfect. She also did a donation in our honor to the charity of our choice.

  • Kitty performed our wedding on April 6, 2013 in Santa Barbara. She did a wonderful job and we couldn't have asked for a better officiant. She performed such a beautiful ceremony for us and exactly the way we discussed. She is very attentive to details and responds to questions quickly. We can't thank her enough for making our day such a special one.
