WOW WOW WOW! We absolutely loved Kimberly from our first consultation. She took time to really get to know us, asked all of the right questions - things I hadnt even thought about and was able to make my wife feel at ease, which was hard to do at the time because we had to switch venues one month before our big day so we were absolutely frazzled and stressed! One of the best gifts Kimberly gave me personally the day of our consultation was a vivid play by play of the ceremony. Up to that point we had so many conversations with planners and vendors but I couldnt yet envision what all these different specific Important moments of the ceremony were going to be like. She gave me a vision which took all of my concerns and worries away. The day of the wedding, she put that vision to life and it was sincerely everything I had wanted and more, she pulled all the stray pieces of the puzzle together. Her calming voice made everyone feel relaxed. I can continue to rant and rave about how great this woman Kimberly is but dont take my word for it. You will be just as pleased as my wife and I. Sincerely the BEST officiant experience of any wedding I have been to and been in.

After doing a lot of research we ended up reaching out to Kimberly at The Sacred Adventure - from the start we knew this was not your average officiant service. Kimberly was very personal and wanted to get to know us and what we envisioned for our ceremony. She was going to put together a very personal and custom ceremony, but my husband and I actually preferred to go with a more traditional ceremony. Kimberly was very flexible and wanted to be sure we got exactly what we wanted, she put together a beautiful ceremony focused on love and uniting in marriage!When it came to wedding day, Kimberly arrived early and made it a point to say hello to the wedding party before the ceremony started. She also explained what we needed to do after the ceremony to sign our marriage license so she could send it in for us. Our wedding day was perfect thanks to Kimberly!Thank you Rev. Kimberly for being a part of our big day!

It's easy to get lost in the all the superficial details of getting married. But Kim kept us grounded in what mattered most: making a loving commitment to the person you want to adventure with for the rest of your life.Kim is kind, professional and guided us every step of the way.Her calming presence was most appreciated on a day that could have been super stressful. We had a couple of unfortunate events occur a week before our wedding (my husband's grandmother passed and my sister had emergency surgery). Kim was attentive to these details and addressed them with tact and grace during our ceremony.Professionally, she is detailed, punctual and communicated well with email, Zoom, text and over the phone, too. Prior to the wedding she sent us a copy of the ceremony so we would know exactly what she was going to say. There was no embarassing surprises.She guided us in all the business of making our marriage official, too. Everything from crafting a beautful ceremony, helping us write our personalized vows to signing all the legal documents.Overall, working with Kim was a joy. I am so happy she married us! :)Photos by: Ryanchardsmith.com

Kimberly was a fantastic officiant! She was friendly and down to earth, I knew immediately when meeting her that she was the one for our wedding. She was quick to respond and wrote a beautiful ceremony. She was tuned to details - she asked for our wedding colors so she could wear a shirt to match! She incorporated our needs into the ceremony very well and was very flexible given the challenges of Covid. Overall, Kimberly made our day truly special and we would highly recommend her!

We hired Kimberly after finding out that our great uncle was unable to officiate our wedding due to covid. The moment we spoke with Kimberly, my husband and I knew she was the right one for us! She took the time to really get to know us and took the time to understand what we wanted. She was so sweet, kind and understanding-everything we would want in our officiant! Throughout the process, Kimberly is WONDERFUL with her communication. She is thorough and replied very quickly to our emails. She had sent us examples of what our vows can be if we decided to choose to use them, but we decided to write our own vows. On the day of the wedding, Kimberly was extremely professional, and I loved how she checked in with us before the ceremony started. Kimberlys voice is so calm, and that really helped eased all the nerves! Now, the important part-the ceremony. WOW, Kimberly delivered the most beautiful words to describe our love and our union. We shared lots of laughter and tears. Our guests couldnt stop talking about how wonderful Kimberly was and how she really set the tone for our wedding. We can not thank Kimberly enough for making our day so memorable. Thank you for making our wedding planning process during this pandemic easy with your kindness, flexibility and understanding! We would hire Kimberly again in a heartbeat!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My basic pricing structure for elopements starts at $250 and for weddings is $400. This fee includes all communication, ceremony preparation, my presence at your wedding (including travel time and mileage), facilitation of the marriage license witnessing and recording, and any additional transportation costs. If you wish to have a rehearsal a day or two prior to the ceremony, my fee for mid-week rehearsals (M-Th) is $100.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I'm happy to offer a complimentary "get to know you" chat via telephone, Zoom/FaceTime, where we can determine whether we're a good match. We'll also have a chance to discuss your desires and visions for your special day. At that time I'm happy to offer suggestions for venues and vendors as well as answer any additional questions you may have.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am an ordained non-denominational, multi-faith, Interfaith minister though One Spirit Interfaith Seminary. I am also trained in premarital counseling, spiritual counseling, and life purpose and career/business coaching.
