Kathy prepared our elopement ceremony not as an officiant but as if she was a member of our family. My wife and I married in the presence of an officiant to placate my mother, and Kathy, who is well-versed in many religious and cultural traditions, knew exactly what to do to make her happy. When we did not have a venue for our elopement, Kathy opened up her beautiful apartment, which is just across from the National Cathedral. Her rooftop deck has THE best view in the city; better than the even the Kennedy Center and W Hotel. She preformed an amazing secular ceremony -- but it was multicultural, owing to Kathy's deep knowledge -- for us that she put together in less than one week. Kathy's husband took photos, moved around furniture to accommodate us, and was a very gracious host. After the ceremony, Kathy and her husband opened up their apartment, and allowed us to serve champagne and cake to our five guests. Kathy was also the most reasonably priced officiant we could find in DC; you can't go wrong with her prices! She was very responsive, flexible, and willing to put together an emergency ceremony in less than one week. We owe our family's peace to Kathy, and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone wishing to get married in DC.

We had a great experience with Kathy! We wanted a unique ceremony but did not have anything specific in mind. Kathy met us for coffee and gave us a ton of ideas and helped us build our perfect ceremony. She was very responsive and easy to talk with. She arrived early for our wedding and was willing to go over anything we needed. We ended up doing a hand tying ceremony, she helped us find the cords that we got to keep and she made us a beautiful book with our ceremony inside. The whole experience was wonderful!

We really enjoyed working with Kathy. We really had no idea what kind of ceremony we wanted, and that was OK because Kathy gave us a great template to work with and so much other material to choose from. While this was not part of either of our faiths/traditions, we loved the Celtic Knot portion of the ceremony. It was so unique and our families loved it. We had two in-person meetings and that was really all we needed! Overall we had a really nice experience and there was a great value in the cost.

Kathy did a wonderful job of blending two different religious backgrounds - Christian and Hindu - to create a beautiful customized ceremony. We really appreciate all of the work that Kathy did - not only just working with us leading up to the ceremony, but on the day of - being well prepared and arriving early to the ceremony site and bringing ceremonial materials. We had accidentally gotten our marriage license in Virginia, instead of Maryland (where we were married) and Kathy was kind enough to come to our home to re-read our vows. She truly goes above and beyond. We really enjoyed getting to know Kathy and spending time with her!

Kathy was AWESOME!!! She was full of great ideas, very intuitive and listened to whatever we wanted to convey in our ceremony. We are a blended family (4 kids) and she helped come up with ideas to include them. Even guests commented on her kind, upbeat energy. We are so happy to have found her for our wedding!

Kathy was awesome! We fully recommend her as officiant for any couple getting married in VA (or elsewhere). Our wedding was a non-religious ceremony, and we worked with Kathy to come up with something we liked and that felt just right for us. She had some great suggestions, including one unusual thing that we immediately loved - and all our guests thought was the best part of the ceremony. A few weeks before the wedding, she invited us to for a glass of wine at her place to discuss the ceremony (her rooftop by the way has the best views of DC we've ever seen). At the ceremony she made sure everyone felt welcome and that everything went smoothly. The ceremony went perfectly!

We loved working with Kathy and are so happy that we choose her to be our officiant! We didn't have a clear vision of what we wanted our ceremony to look like besides it being spiritual and non-religious. Kathy provided us with lots of materials and helped us to create a beautiful and personalized ceremony. Being out of state, Kathy FaceTimed with us on multiple occasions and met with us a few days before the wedding. Kathy is not only a professional with lots of experience, but it’s obvious that she loves what she does. It was such a breath of fresh air to work with someone who was genuinely happy for us. She handled all of the legal details without any fuss too!

We had a mixture of an elopement and small wedding. All of our family lives out of town, several states away. We started looking for officiants and found Kathy! She was amazing and professional. She made us feel like family! I will look back out on special day and remember she was part of what the day so great! I highly reccomend her. Thank you again Kathy!!!

Working with Kathy on our wedding ceremony was a great experience! She had many unique ideas that made our ceremony personal and she was responsive throughout. We didn't have much of a vision to start with so she provided us with a large package of ideas and it really helped us to find what worked for us. We received many compliments on how thoughtful the guests thought the ceremony was. Afterwards the courthouse misplaced part of our license paperwork and Kathy was extremely helpful and got it all sorted out too!

We contacted Kathy 2 weeks before our wedding and we are so glad we did! She got back to me very quickly and we set up a meeting close to our home in Alexandria. Kathy was very kind and welcoming so I instantly knew that she would be the perfect officiant for our wedding. Kathy provided various readings to include in our ceremony and answered all of our questions. On our wedding day, Kathy arrived early and she brought extra materials for our ceremony in case we had forgotten to bring them. I had forgotten to bring the candle for our ceremony but Kathy was prepared! Kathy welcomed us into her home a few days after the wedding to drop off the marriage license and complimented our wedding. She is just amazing at what she does! Kathy’s radiant personality made our ceremony great! Kathy thank you for being part of our special day!

To make a long story short, Kathy was an amazing emergency officiant! She took care of us with no issues at all and was so kind to me and my now husband. We were so rushed to take care of this ceremony that she was able to fit us in the same day we called her. I cannot praise her enough, she was so kind and calming we couldn't have asked for a better officiant.

Kathy was truly amazing. I was incredibly stressed about our ceremony because my family is very conservative and I am far from it. Kathy worked with us for many hours to create a ceremony where both my husband and I AND my controlling mother walked away feeling like we all got exactly what we wanted--which never happens. She not only created the ceremony but she also helped coordinate our procession, my daily stress levels and brought sunshine on days I thought the wedding planning would consume me. If you want a ceremony that is unique to you and your spouse, look no further. All of our guest told us it was the best ceremony they had ever seen and I couldn't agree more- it was perfect!
