• I create services that are personalized, meaningful and enjoyable.

    At your free consultation we will get to know each other so I can write the custom ceremony that both of you and your guests will enjoy: fun and energetic to serious and subdued, I have you covered.

    Most often you already know the type of energy you want at your wedding; but if you don't, I will help you figure out the atmosphere you will feel best in. From there, viola, we will have the beginning of your wedding ceremony!

    I perform a professional service in a manner that fulfills your needs.  It has been my pleasure to deliver services at large formal weddings, intimate gatherings, private elopements, micro weddings and vow renewals tucked in the woods.  I also have experience with rehearsals, interfaith marriages, secular rituals and eulogies.

    There are many breathtaking settings in our area so I understand you will need me to travel to your event.  No problem.

    Everyone deserves happiness and it would be my honor to help you start this next phase of your life off right.  "We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures” - Thornton Wilder

    My back story...

    I grew up in the suburbs of Cleveland and moved to south Michigan when I married my husband, now we also have 3 children.  Between all of that I have worked with the public for many years: urban planner, community development, retail business owner, agency nurse, yoga instructor, reiki practitioner and officiant too.  I easily adapt to any circumstance and enjoy diversity. That is where me fitting your officiating needs comes in!

    Kristy is the best officant for any couple looking to have a truly meaningful ceremony. She just did our wedding ceremony in October 2019 and it was beautiful. Not only did she meet with us months beforehand to get to know us better, but she also customized the ceremony to fit our wishes. She checked in with us before the wedding and afterwards. Overall, she truly made our ceremony special and was gracious from beginning to end.

    We could not have been more pleased with Kristy. We contacted her with little notice and she was more than willing to help us. She was very professional and kind. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. Very pleasant personality and made feel comfortable. I would highly recommend Kristy!!

    I can’t rave enough about Kristy’s professionalism, warmth, patience, beautiful speaking style, and lovely writing. She met with us and we instantly clicked. Kristy has a very calming aura, a way with words, and made sure our ceremony was perfect. She collaborated with our DJ, photographer, venue, and all of our vendors. You will be so thankful you chose Kristy to be a part of your special day.

    Our first minister scammed us and no-showed, and we couldn’t get our deposit back. I got in touch with Kristin and she was so kind, knowledgeable, and professional. She really helped us to make our wedding day special. I appreciate her for taking us last-minute, and for showing flexibility for honoring our wishes for a Non-traditional ceremony. I highly recommend Kristin to anyone and everyone. She really saved the day! I don’t know what I would have done without her.

      Amanda you made it easy, even with all of your last minute changes you were on top of it. Thank you for asking me to officiate your wedding and I really liked your non-traditional ceremony, all of it blended seamlessly. I appreciate you taking the time to leave this review, thank you.

    Kristin was absolutely wonderful to work with during our ceremony planning process. She completely understood what we wanted and asked all of the right questions. She took a tremendous amount of stress away the moment started talking. She’s very kind and was so great at communicating through every step of the way. We would recommend Kristin for any non-denominational wedding; we feel very lucky to have had her as our officiant!

    She was absolutely amazing to work with. She was very accommodating and helped make our ceremony perfect. Taking ideas from both my wife and myself, combining them into something that fit for the both of us and came out absolutely wonderful. I am absolutely pleased with the outcome and I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. It was a pleasure working with her.

      Thank you Jordan! It was such a pleasure working with both you and Whitney. The extra thought you put into making your wedding day special for her was really touching and I was honored to be a part of it. I am glad I was able to deliver what you envisioned and I loved your outdoor winter wedding theme! Thanks again for selecting me to officiate and for this awesome review!
