Don't take my word for it. See what others are saying!

Shevonne & Sean - Jul. 21, 2019

Kristin was great! She came highly recommended by another vendor and really pull our big day together! From the moment we first met with Kristin, we could tell it was going to be a good fit. Personally, I found great comfort working with someone that has her level of knowledge. She kindly guided us through the whole process and made customizing the ceremony convenient. This convenience and simplicity was greatly appreciated for me, a bride that was planning her own wedding.

Not only have I received many compliments on her readings, but she saved the day when I forgot to print out my vows. She had already printed an additional copy for my use! I would highly recommend Kristin to any friends or family that get married! She is simply wonderful to work with!!

Steve & Gabe - Sept. 25, 2022

As two gay men getting married, we knew from the start that we wanted a woman to be our wedding officiant - and when a good friend of ours referred us to Kristin Cusenbary and Seaside Ceremonies, we knew we’d found the right person to help us tie the know on our special day. Over a series of months, we met via Zoom with Kristin, with her really getting to know the two of us in a very special way. Kristin made us feel at ease, and via a detailed questionnaire that each of us filled out separately, she was able to craft a memorable and very meaningful ceremony script for the wedding day. Without having ever met her in person, we got a great feeling from Kristin - and when the day came that she delivered our actual ceremony script, we were equal parts excited / scared / anxious - all rolled into one. We opened up her email and read what she had written - and we literally had to stop multiple times to wipe away the tears from our eyes. She got everything so perfect - from tiny details we’d included in our questionnaires to things we’d mentioned in passing to her via zoom and emails. She wove the story of our love together so beautifully and we knew immediately that the ceremony would be deeply moving for our guests. We made a few minor tweaks to what she’d written, but overall she’d done an amazing job. Kristin joined us on the day of our rehearsal, truly the first time we’d met her face to face. At this point, she knew us intimately, and helped to soothe our fears and put us at ease. On the day of the wedding, we were calm and cool … until it came time to actually walk down the aisle. But at the end, there stood Kristin, ready to take us to the next chapter! And while it mattered not in the least, Kristin is gorgeous - and her radiant smile welcomed us like an old friend. The script she had written was perhaps a little longer than others - but it was filled with love and told our story in a magical and wonderful way - bringing both tears and laughter to our friends and family who joined us. Kristin was a pro - helping those in our wedding party, working with our wedding planner and the musicians - making everything seamless and stress-free on our wedding day. Before we knew it, the ceremony was done and Kristin took care of the details of our marriage license. And before she left, we managed to get a few photos with her - and gave her our thanks. The ceremony that she wrote for us is something we’ll treasure forever. We have those beautiful words to look back on - to reflect on - and we couldn’t have been more pleased with all that she brought to the most special day of our lives together.

If you're reading this, you've come to the right place for finding your wedding officiant.  And we recommend that you book Kristin immediately.  After researching a lot of other potentials, we decided Kristin would be a good fit for us because she had a professional, but warm and authentic presence.  For us, we wanted a ceremony that was a little non-traditional and fun, but still recognizable as a wedding ceremony and Kristin delivered in a big way.  She was very responsive, thoughtful and attentive to our desires.  She also had great ideas when it came to pointing us in the right direction on what is appropriate and special.  Kristin sent us a draft to review of our ceremony well in advance of our big day so that we had complete confidence in what to expect and she made our ceremony feel like it was completely unique to us. She even met up with us to meet our fur child (Juan Pablo the dog) before the ceremony so that everyone was familiar and friendly going into the event. We're so, so thankful that Kristin was available on our day and now we can't imagine our wedding with anyone other than her.  Thank you, Kristin!  You rock!

Kristin was wonderful to work with before the wedding, all the way leading up to the wedding and on our actual wedding day. Kristin did a great job writing us a very personal ceremony speech that really expressed our love story for our friends and family. On the actual wedding day, Kristin arrived early and made sure to check in with us to see if we needed anything and that our whole bridal party was all set for the walk down the aisle. During the ceremony, our microphone / speakers were actually malfunctioning a bit but Kristin ended up solving the problem by just projecting loud and clear so that everyone could hear her. After the ceremony, Kristin even helped us wrangle friends and family for pictures while she patiently waited to get a picture with us. Kristin exceeded our expectations and was so professional from start to finish. We can't recommend Kristin enough--thank you to Kristin for making our wedding day all that much more special!
