Non-Religious Wedding Officiant
Reverend Karen Schultz officiated our backyard wedding September 10th, 2016. We couldn't have been happier with her service!! She was able to really project our story and our unique love for one another durning the service. Numerous guests have continued to commpliment the service she provided. Karen was a great communicater and was available to answer questions and concerns before the wedding as well as being opened to our own wants. Karen was perfect for our beautiful backyard wedding!!Sep 15, 2016Verified
Non-Religious Wedding Officiant
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, 2017VerifiedLovingly Done Ceremonies'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 did a great job officiating our wedding! She made the process easy and fun! Her approach to personalizing the ceremony was very special. We had family members comment on how beautiful it was. She worked with us on every detail, from the music to the vows. We highly recommend Karen to anyone looking for a unique, personal and non-traditional ceremony. Your guests will experience your true love story!Jan 10, 2018
Working with Karen was an absolute pleasure. We got married on May 3rd, about an hour from our home and we were unsure on how to go about finding an officiant. I reached out to our venue to get recommendations, and Lovingly Done was one of the few we received. After looking at Karen’s website, I knew that I needed to contact her. From the very first call, to our meetings, to the wedding; she was amazing to work with! She really listens to what you say, makes notes and then utilizes that in the ceremony. She makes each piece unique and special. She had everyone laughing, crying and smiling throughout our entire wedding ceremony. She even had a special touch that allowed us to include our daughter into the ceremony, which was beyond special to us. We received numerous compliments on how the ceremony was done, everyone loved the unique touches and stories she took from us to use in the ceremony. We could not have asked for anything better than what we received from Karen. She helped to make our wedding day truly special and so much more than what we could have hoped for! Thank you for everything and we will recommend you to everyone that we can!Jun 4, 2019Lovingly Done Ceremonies's reply
Aww thank you so much Samantha. You know I wish you Jeremiah and Kennedy oceans of happiness.
My husband and I had searched very hard to find an officiant who could help capture our love story. We both are not super religious, so we wanted to find a way to have our ceremony center around our love with a few references to our Lutheran beliefs. From the moment I first contacted her, Rev. Karen has been super quick to respond and answer any questions. After we met her and understood her process, we knew she'd be the best officiant for us. She crafts a personal love story using your answers to questions she wrote herself. The questions were a bit strange and worded weirdly, but she was able to use our answers to create a sweet and touching ceremony. The ceremony she wrote definitely reflected our love. It was funny, sweet, romantic, and we were able to incorporate Lutheran vows. The only complaint my quests had was that her speech was a little long, but everything she said was very heart felt and meaningful so it wasn't that big of a deal. I can't explain how perfect it was to have Rev. Karen officiate our wedding. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants something extra special at their ceremony!!Oct 20, 2016
