Great experience working together with Karen! Karen took time to get to know the bride and groom before the wedding and answered any questions we had. We wanted to keep the ceremony very short and it turned out perfect. The Love Story concept of the bride and groom individually filling out a brief questionnaire before the wedding was a great idea that allowed us to have a personalized ceremony. It was fun hearing the responses to the questionnaire on our wedding day in front of all our friends and family, which kept everyone laughing and engaged. Everything went smooth on wedding day and our guests loved the ceremony! Thank you again, Karen!Sep 28, 2018
Karen's attention to detail in organizing our marriage ceremony was excellent and we were able to include our style for how we wanted our vows and actions to be included to create a beautiful and memorable wedding day.Jan 3, 2017Verified
Karen was an absolute dream to work with! From our very first telephone call, it was extremely obvious Karen truly enjoys what she does. My husband (!) and I really wanted a ceremony that reflected us as a couple. Karen provided us each with a Love Story Questionnaire to fill out separately from one another and then incorporated our responses into her ceremony address. She put so much time and care into our personalized ceremony, which I have received so many compliments on! She even provided a folder to us after the ceremony that included our Love Story Questionnaires to read, a copy of her personalized ceremony address, and copies of the wedding vows we wrote for each other, in addition to our marriage record. I could not have asked for anything more from Karen, because she far exceeded my wildest dreams! Besides the quality Karen offers her couples, her service fees were the absolute lowest around! My husband and I are not local to the area where we got married, so it was tricky finding an officiant that we connected with and could afford. Weddings are extremely expensive, and after some unexpected family hardships, money was tighter than we had originally planned. I had received multiple quotes that made me want to cry (and these officiants offered much, much less service than Karen offers for much, much more cost than Karen charges). When I came across Karen, I felt like I could breathe again because she wasn't trying to take advantage of us like many of the officiants I had previously been in contact with. I truly appreciate her integrity to not overcharge in an industry that triples the asking price at the mention of the word, "wedding". Karen welcomed my mother, my husband, and myself into her home and broke down every single detail of the wedding rehearsal, which she attended and participated in, and the actual ceremony. She provided her guidance and advice throughout the entire year, so while we may have hired her for what seems like an hour's worth of time, Karen put so much more into making our special day unremarkable! I cannot say it enough, Karen is amazing! She would make a great addition to your special day. Thank you beyond words. Karen!Aug 1, 2017VerifiedKaren S.'s reply
Thank you so much Alison and Keith for the absolutely beautiful review. So grateful I could help your day to be memorable
Karen was an absolute joy to work with! She made everything before, during and after the ceremony go so smoothly. My husband and I live 9 hours away from her and where we got married. She was so accommodating and flexible to work with setting up meetings to plan our ceremony. The ceremony itself was perfect. We received so many compliments from our guests about how meaningful and heartfelt our ceremony was. Any question i had throughout the process, she was only a text away and always responded in a timely manner. Karen is has a heart of gold and it is very evident she loves what she does.Sep 9, 2018Verified
Karen was a great person to work with. She was very thorough with everything, and made sure to answer any questions about the marriage certificate process. The love story she put together for us was so beautiful. We even got a copy to keep and I was able to see what my husband wrote about me on the survey Karen put together. Our ceremony went smoothly and we couldn't be happier. I definitely recommend Lovingly Done.Nov 13, 2017VerifiedKaren S.'s reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The pricing is dependent upon the location of the venue, the type of ceremony and any other ceremony extras such as equipment, traditions, and rehearsal. I can give the couple a definitive fee once we have discussed specific details. It usually ranges from 125 for simple elopement ceremonies at wedding venues within 5 miles from my home on up to 200-400 for original ceremonies further in distance depending on the specifics.Venues out of state are additional fee.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I honor the requests from my couples from a simple elopement ceremony to a creatively designed one. My process is very personalized and usually includes at least one face to face meeting with the couple.Deposits are due at second meeting. Lovingly Done's intention is always to inspire ceremonies for ALL couples with Love in Mind.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am an ordained interfaith minister from Circle of Miracles Ministry school in New Britain, Pa which I attended and was ordained in April of 2010. I have also been trained as a mental health therapist.
