These words of praise are directly from couples with whom I’ve had the joy of co-creating and leading their ceremony. You’ll find pieces of emails, snippets of reviews or hand-written thank you notes I’ve received after leading a ceremony. (I have to admit, I do save and cherish the hand-written notes!) If you’d like to hear more from couples beyond what I’ve posted here, take a peek at my recent Wedding Wire Reviews. (Where I am Five Star Rated!)

“We want to thank you again for helping co-create our wedding ceremony. As we have already said, but we want to say again, our wedding was absolutely perfect. It was warm, inviting, personal and memorable; and most of all it was ‘US’. We cannot thank you enough. Guest after guest came up to us following our ceremony to express how much they enjoyed it. We feel so lucky to have met you and have Sweetgrass Ceremonies design a ceremony that will live in our hearts forever.”

– Eric & Jill, August 2014

“You made our wedding so memorable and we want to thank you for that! Even though it was last minute, you cared about getting to know us and making the ceremony sentimental! P.S. Thanks for being flexible on our crazy-delayed-wedding day. :)”

– Hillary & Zach, August 2014

“We absolutely loved working with you to create our ceremony and we are so happy with the way it turned out. We couldn’t have imagined trying to create something with such meaning, laughter and our personality without you. You added even more wonderfulness to our wedding day with your kind and funny personality. We will always look back on our wedding with happiness and awe at how beautiful it was – especially the ceremony – which as you know, was of utmost importance to us.”

~ Amy & Patrick, April 2014

“We wish to extend our deepest thanks for the work you have done. This wedding couldn’t have happened without you! Thanks for truly seeking to understand and respect us. Your support, presence and words were invaluable. Thanks for making this day great.”

~Erin & Stu, January 2014

“Our wedding couldn’t have been more perfect, thanks to Kristine! Like other brides I read reviews and knew she was our only choice for our officiant. When I met her for the first time I felt like I reconnecting with a best friend. She is a wonderful listener, communicator, and made our planning easy. One thing I’ll never forget is how she told our (my husband and me) story during the ceremony and it was like she understood our love for each other. Kristine made our guests laugh, cry and renew their own vows to one another. It was a special ceremony that was very unforgettable!”

~ Sarah and Jake, October 2013

“We cannot thank you enough for making our special day even more special with your support and guidance of our ceremony. You were exactly what we wanted, spiritual, funny, calm, confident.  Even in that 106 degree heat, you kept us all calm and happy!  I have received so many notes and feedback from our guests that our wedding was by far the best wedding ceremony they have ever attended!”

~ Bride, June 2013

“Thank you so much! Not only for the beautiful and very meaningful ceremony, but for going above and beyond by being a calming force when the DJ was late, by offering to download the music and even helping pin on boutonnieres. You were amazing: professional, kind, creative and thoughtful. Thank you for the perfect ceremony.”

~ Mother of Bride, May 2013

“It has been such a pleasure working with you, Kristine! Thank you for all of your hard work to make our wedding ceremony perfectly reflect who we are.”

~ Susan & Mike, March 2013

“Kristine, we want to thank you for such a beautiful and thoughtful ceremony. Our guests were as touched as we were. Everyone was impressed by your calm and joyful presence and commented on what a thoughtfully personal ceremony it was. Thanks again for all your work to make our wedding so special.”

“Thanks so much for being a wonderful Celebrant to our son and new daughter-in-law’s wedding. You went above and beyond to create a personal story and ceremony for them. Here is a hand-carved angel from one of our local artists. Thank you for being an angel to Doug and Brandy.”

~ Mother and Father of the Groom, November 2012

“I am in awe of you!  Thank you beyond words for making our wedding ceremony so special!  You had people crying that I never would have expected.  It was such a joyful occassion, and your words brought that joy to life.  I will think of you for any special life event that comes our way.  You have such a gift and I am so glad you shared it with us.  Matt’s mom loved you too!  She kept saying how you had such a calming, warm presence.”

~ Katherine & Matt, June 2012

“Kristine is the best! Professional, experienced, and very helpful. She tailored our vows to our story. We wanted a spiritual but fun ceremony. Kristine delivered! Everyone laughed, yet they were touched and felt a deep sense of connection with us. I wouldn’t change a thing if I could.”

~ Stefanie & Ed, April 2012

“We continue to gush to all of our friends and family about what a truly beautiful job you did for us in our ceremony!”

~ Daisy & Hodge, April 2012

“Kristine provided us with the exact wedding that we had hoped for. She was prompt with return calls, e-mails, and arrival time. She made us feel comfortable before and during our simple ceremony. We would recommend her for any wedding, big or small.”

~Janet & John, April 2012

“What a wonderful ceremony we had! I am thoroughly convinced that if my darling husband and I had not chosen to have Kristine officiate our wedding, we would not have been able to have one that was truly all our own. Kristine used a collaborative approach to designing our ceremony so our wedding reflected who we are individually and who we are as a couple. She is such a genuinely warm and sincere person so each word that she spoke was also warm and sincere.”

~Toni & Michael, November 2011

“To any future bride and groom looking for the best; please look no further! I would like to take the time to let you know that Kristine from Sweetgrass Ceremonies was the icing on our wedding day! She is professional and very responsive to all our needs and concerns! She will take the time to personalize your ceremony utilizing your thoughts and background to make it truly unique.  Thank you again Kristine!”

~Mike & Teena, September 2011

“The ceremony was so perfect to us! We got so many positive comments from guests as well. You made the whole process low key and the day of, you were fabulous! The ceremony was exactly what we were looking for. Your calm and kind heart seemed to make everything easier. Thank you.”

~Jennifer & Tyler, April 2011

I’m a sucker for hand-written thank you notes!

“Everything about meeting and connecting with you was truly meant to be, Kristine! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect Officiant or for a more fitting ceremony. We are blessed.”

~ Carolyn & John, December 2010

“You have the patience of a saint. We had no idea how meaningful and personal our ceremony could be! Everyone keeps raving about it to us. Thank you, Kristine. It was perfect.”
