Kathryn was amazing!! She kept everyone calm, even though the weather for the ceremony wasn’t going to plan, and she also kept us all on schedule (which isn’t heard of for me, so to be on time for my wedding day was great!). Everyone loved her so much!! She brought so much fun and life to our ceremony. I couldn’t recommend her enough to everyone I know getting married!! Kathryn- no joke she just made the ceremony run so smoothly and helped the day to continue that way. She was the best! Everyone needs a Kathryn at their wedding!! October 2023

Kathryn Haynes was absolutely perfect. She brought a sense of whimsy and joy to our ceremony that exceeded any expectations. She was calming, friendly and charasmatic while still maintaining a level of professionalism and order needed to keep things moving along smoothly. She handled every bit of chaos from my family (including our 3 dogs, who decided to partake in the ceremony, uninvited) with grace and humor. She put a smile on everyone's faces and helped to make our day as magical as possible. I truly could not speak more highly of this wonderful woman. August 2022

Kathryn Haynes was friendly, professional, and worked closely with us to put together the perfect ceremony. Her attention to detail is outstanding and she explained the process and answered all of my questions before I even had to ask. Thank you Kathryn. Eric & Charlotte June 209

Veronica & Kenley
Kathryn Haynes was great! Very professional, put together and knowledgeable about the process. Kathryn was a great addition to our wedding. When we met earlier, she had a great questionnaire that we filled out together and helped us get our thoughts together on the details of the ceremony. Things that we wouldn't have thought about. She also gave us the freedom to write up or change some of the wording of the vows (leaving in the legal stuff), which was a great personal touch.

Chuck & Thalia

Kathryn Haynes was a fantastic wedding officiant for my new husband and I. Kathryn was very professional and she did an excellent job during our ceremony. Her input in helping us design the ceremony was crucial to its success. Kathryn was prompt and she was always willing to help us with questions and with our wedding coordination. I would recommend Kathryn to other friends who were getting married as she made the day exceptionally fun and stress free.
