Reverend Katherine

I started doing weddings because my BFF from our childhood Girl Scout troop asked me to. I kept doing weddings because I LOVE weddings. And I'm great at them. I want every wedding I go to to be an amazing, hilarious, sacred, musical, gorgeous, fun, awe-inspiring testimony to love. I started kept doing weddings so that more would be that way.

And I keep doing weddings because so many people aren't great at them. I've been to weddings — and I bet you have too — where the officiant mispronounces one of the grooms' names, talks over the bride's stutter, or forgets to send in the marriage license. I promise not to do that to you.

I'm no canned officiant. I'm a queer, feminist, cosplay-loving poet. I'm about crafting the coolest wedding you've ever been to – yours – whatever your and your partner's shape, size, color, gender, quirk, or kink.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

What's the sacred text of your relationship? Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, the Bible, punk rock, Sappho, Star Wars, the Kama Sutra? Whatever is important to you and your spouse-to-be, that's where we will start to craft a meaningful wedding ceremony together.

Religion is in the eye of the beholder. We never have to mention any sort of deity; your wedding will nevertheless be sacred, because you are declaring love to another person. That said, if you want it to be religious, let's talk about what that means to you and your partner. If she's Christian and you're atheist, we can make that work. If he's Jewish and you're Muslim, I read both Hebrew and Arabic. If they're Wiccan — well, I don't know much about that, because it's a mystery. But I'm always happy to learn.

Katherine officiated my wife's and my wedding. She was amazingly organized, spiritually thoughtful, and integrated mine and my wife's story — and some of our friends' — into her service. Her tone was humorous but still respectful of the ceremony and struck a great balance. I'd feel comfortable having her a part of any wedding, be it traditional or a little more on the unconventional side as ours was. – Sam W.

Examples of my work

Kris and Kelly are real-life rocket scientists, and they wanted a traditional wedding with a little bit of sciency flair. In the ceremony, I reminded them that they are made of stardust — an unremarkable fact, since we are all made of stardust. What makes them remarkable is that they have seen the stardust in each other.

Emily and Sam work in Hollywood, and they had a production of a wedding at the La Brea Tar Pits, complete with a wedding movie. For their ceremony, I managed to work in references to dinosaurs, Sam's favorite scripture, and a sex joke subtle enough that Emily and Sam laughed but none of their conservative family got it.

I take crafting a wedding seriously, but that doesn't mean it has to be all serious.
