Rev. Kirsten kept us both calm. We are very "excitable" people and we were ready to add so much, but it would have been TOO long. She kept us on track and helped us revise things as needed. It was a great ceremony in the end.
Nothing. That's just the thing. We knew EVERYTHING to expect and we were NOT surprised at all. This is something that comforted the both of us.
We wore our parents' wedding clothes from 40 years ago. We had children everywhere and we had Rev. Kirsten recite some poetry.
Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? She had this smile that just set us at ease. My fiance doesn't speak much English, but she knew enough French to communicate the basics to him and make him more comfortable.
What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? She read 2 passages of the service in French. The part that meant the most to my in-laws. That was VERY much a surprise.
How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? We read our own vows.
Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? WOW! Is she from Quebec too? (She wasn't, I think, but no one could tell!)

Review: Just what we were promised! She saved the day!
Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? We were disappointed by the first officiant we chose and a friend recommended Rev. Kirsten to us. She'd met her at a bridal show and loved her, but had already had her own. She told me in the end she wished she'd chosen Rev. Kirsten and I can tell you why first hand! She swooped in and saved the day. Very laid-back but quite professional, she put us at ease immediately. She asked a ton of questions and within 1day, she'd written us the ceremony of our dreams. On rehearsal night, she helped conduct the rehearsal and set us all at ease. Wedding day arrived and she was there early to review the site and get us going on time. It was a beautiful day and we owe it all to her! THANKS Rev. Kirsten!
What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? She remembered what a fan of poetry I was and read some quotes from my favorite poet! Quite unexpected!
How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? We added a Sand ceremony...something I'd not heard of.
Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? "You must have known her forever. She knew all of your favorite quotes!"
