What they had to say…

“I have been to a lot of weddings recently.
Most are sweet but some leave an imprint on your heart. Your ceremony left one on mine today.”
– Grandma Joy

“Wow! We couldn’t have wished for a better celebrant. Kari is simply extraordinary. From the outset, she took the time to get to know us and what we were about. She’s kind, curious, compassionate, funny and damn good. Her words for our ceremony had all of us alternately in tears and laughing. She nailed everything – her professionalism, her timing, her thoroughness and attention to detail were unparalleled. She was always available to answer our questions and talk us down if we were freaking out – “just relax and enjoy the moment, guys. I’m going to guide you through the whole thing” was just what we needed to hear. All our family and friends loved the ceremony and her amazing contribution. And she was a blast to celebrate with afterwards at the reception. A beautiful human, she is the perfect complement to the most special of days. We cannot recommend Kari highly enough.”
– Pesto and Greg (the 2 lads)
