Kari designed and delivered a beautiful memorial service for my late brother. She took time, at our pace, to get to know us before the event, and responded to our (largely unspoken) needs with compassion and the firm clarity so necessary at a time of grief and...

Putu & Ricardo

Putu & Ricardo

If you want a celebrant who caters to your multicultural or multi-belief needs, Kari is the woman for the job! I found her after worrying for days about who could officiate a wedding for us. I am a Hindu believer, he is not. I wanted the ceremony to be sacred as well as intimate. I was looking around for a person who could cater to this need. Kari was the one.

Eileen ( a memorial)

Our girl’s farewell

Jaymee and David

Jaymee and David

Kari is exactly what we were looking for in a celebrant. We wanted a very personal, creative ceremony; a secluded location with our two closest friends as witnesses and with none of those traditional vows and promises that most other couples opt for.

Sandy and Niccy
