"We loved working with Kristen! She made sure to make sure our day went off without a hitch. Kristen worked out the finer details when we weren't exactly sure what to say, or what we wanted. Throughout the planning, she put in hard work to create the ceremony outline, asked for our input, and then checked in on us before the wedding. Her hard work was greatly appreciated because it made our ceremony perfect and it was exactly what we wanted. If you're looking for an officiant for your big day, we highly recommend her services. She will make sure the ceremony fits your style and it is exactly what you have envisioned."
"She did an amazing job at our wedding and I would recommend her to anyone."

"Kristen was the officiant for our wedding in September of 2015. EVERYONE came up to me after the wedding saying how perfect the ceremony was, and that you could tell it was written specifically for us. She tailored the ceremony to fit our life together, and our personalities, and it came out perfectly. She captured just what we would have wanted to say to each other. She was also super easy, flexible, and pleasant to work with. We had her run the rehearsal dinner as well, which made everything run much more smooth. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants a non-denominational ceremony because she's the best!"

"We really enjoyed having Kristen as our officiant. We received so many compliments about her and our guests were all surprised that we didn't know her before the wedding! She is very warm and personable. She took the time to get know details about our relationship and crafted a wonderful ceremony! She kept us calm while standing in front of everyone and made us laugh. We feel great about how everything went and will remember this moment forever!"
Megan & Brett, July 6, 2015
"Kristen wrote the most beautiful ceremony for us! It was the perfect length, it was light but not cheesy, and it perfectly reflected our relationship and our style. It was clear that she took time to craft something specifically for us, and she did. We had an almost 2 hour meeting with her a few months ahead of the wedding where she got to know us and our story. It turned out that she had a similar experience to ours so we felt a strong connection with her. Additionally, she swung by our cocktail reception the night before the wedding to get some stories from our friends and family. She weaved all of that into the ceremony so that it felt very personal. She also seemed to have memorized it because when the wind blew the pages over, she didn't skip a beat. We have received so many comments from friends and family that it was one of the best ceremonies they've seen! We agree :)"

"Revered Kristen was amazing and so helpful planning our wedding. She meet with us a few months prior to our big day and spent quality time getting to know us and our love story. From the detailed notes she took she wrote a personalized ceremony for us which was just perfect! During the rehearsal she went over every detail with everyone involved so we all knew what to expect. Our wedding ceremony was exactly what we had pictured and Kristen went above and beyond to ensure our special day will forever be a memory we cherish. We would highly recommend Reverend Kristen for any wedding ceremony she will help make your day amazing!"

"We were so lucky to have found Kristen to officiate our ceremony. For us the ceremony was the most important part of the day, we wanted it to be special and we wanted it to be "us". I was immediately drawn to the way Kristen creates the ceremony. We met with her one afternoon and talked all about our relationship- how we met, our lives together, etc. She involved us by asking me to find a reading that spoke to our relationship and my husband to find a song that could be used as a reading since music is so important to him. We sent many drafts of the ceremony back and forth until we had something we loved. Kristen wanted it to be perfect for us.
On the day of the wedding Kristen came by the hotel to see both of us and make sure everyone was doing OK. I was so worried my husband was going to be running late and Kristen made sure he left on time and texted me to let me know! She was such a calm presence. In the end, we had a beautiful ceremony that was tailored to us with non traditional vows and it was everything we could have wanted. We would absolutely recommend Kristen to anyone who wants a personalized ceremony!"
Mike & Christina, September 27, 2014
"Working with Kristen was wonderful from start to finish! She was flexible with using Skype for our long distance meetings and was open to new non-traditional concepts. I felt an immediate connection to her as we are from the same alma mater and swapped current cities. This made it easy to share our feelings for one another with Kristen and for her to accurately portray our relationship in the ceremony. We had two meetings, one via Skype in which both of us described our love for one another and how we meet. This could have easily gone on for hours, but Kristen kept us on task. The second meeting was a day before the wedding (due to the fact that we flew into my hometown for the wedding). We went over the ceremony outline and finalized our vows. Kristen was extremely patient with us as we finalized our vows and helped us explore the best wording. This was one of the most memorable moments during the wedding planning since all three of us couldn't stop laughing as we came up with creative vows. In the end we had a good balance of loving and unique vows.
Our goal for the ceremony was for it to be short, sweet, and lighthearted. We kept some traditions, like walking the bride down the aisle, but pretty much made the rest of it our own. Kristen understood those goals and exceeded our expectations. The ceremony was professional, fun, and loving and Kristen "held our hands" through the whole event. She met us before the ceremony to ease nerves and to make sure we were well hydrated. During the ceremony she guided us through the vows. Despite not having a church wedding and never once mentioning the word god in the ceremony, to my surprise both of our families loved the ceremony. Several said it was the best ceremony they had attended since it was truly about the two of us and had zero filler. Kristen truly encapsulated the essence of our love in our ceremony. I highly recommend her as an officiant for a personalized and memorable ceremony."

"My wife and I are so happy that we found Kristen to be our officiant! She made the whole process so easy and stress-free, and she was very prompt and professional. It was really important for us to have an officiant that we felt like we could talk to, and we were so lucky to find Kristen. She is so easy-going, genuine, and just a very cool person! Just meeting her for the first time, it was like talking with a friend you’ve known for years. Kristen met with us about a month before the ceremony to get to know us and talk about our ceremony. By meeting with us for only two hours, she was able to write a beautiful, unique ceremony that so perfectly captured who we are as a couple. When I read the first draft of the ceremony, I cried happy-tears – it just so flawlessly fit my wife and I, and was filled with so much love and humor. We received so many compliments from our friends and family about just how perfectly the ceremony fit us as a couple. In fact, they had trouble believing that my wife and I didn’t write the ceremony – that’s how accurately Kristen was able to capture and tell our story. And everyone loved that she was willing to wear Converse sneakers to match our wedding party! We highly recommend Kristen, and we truly appreciate that she worked so hard to make our wedding amazing! She was more perfect than we could have even imagined."

"After lots of time researching online we were led right to Kristen. I found her reviews and her website to be "real" and authentic. I emailed her and within a couple days we were skyping and getting to know each other. She asked basic questions at first, about our lives, how we met, about our family, a little bit about how we envision our ceremony, nothing too deep. Kristen was very professional, easy to talk too and very cool, like talking to a long lost friend. We met weeks later in a Starbucks convenient for us, drank coffee and talked some more, about why we love one another, some funny or meaningful moments we remember vividly and she asked us about the proposal which my husband and I had different accounts of. ha. Kristen was very interested and we loved talking to her. She then wrote up a draft of the potential ceremony. My husband and I loved the poems she had picked along with our lives intertwined into them. She even connected our wedding song into the ceremony. We then chose her to be our wedding officiant. We emailed back and forth to perfect what we thought was the most beautiful and intimate ceremony we could have asked for. Kristen was in no way pushy or too forward with anything. She was punctual and professional at all times. She talked to the wedding planner to get the arrangement of walking down the aisle. My husband and her walked down the aisle to the arbor, he recounts telling Kristen how nervous he was and she eased his nerves by making him laugh. After the ceremony, we had guests ask how we found her and that she really seemed to know my husband and I. Overall, Kristen is an exceptional officiant and you would be crazy not to contact her for your big day!"
Trish & Luke, July 4, 2014
"Kristen is the best officiant! She is so personable. You can meet her once and she feels just like a friend you've know forever. She is even helpful when you are worried ( exp. me with hurricane weather) very positive words of encouragement. She had a long meeting with us before the wedding and took a lot of notes and asked a lot of questions. From that she wrote an amazing story to tell of us during the ceremony, even wrote the best vows for us because we did not want to write our own. All of our guests enjoyed her and a kept asking where did you find her? Thought she was someone you have known for a long time. Will definitely recommend her to everyone!!!!!!!!!"
Chris & Tina, June 28, 2014
"Rev. Kristen both crafted and delivered the perfect ceremony for us! In the planning stages, she met with us in person at a Starbucks and we talked for a while, getting to know each other. It was a very enjoyable experience and I remembering thinking how easy it was to get comfortable with her. We had a vague idea of a wine box/love letter ceremony and she was able to take that format and create a meaningful and flowing ceremony, personalized for us. On the day of the wedding, she was a calming force in the middle of chaos. What some of these other reviews forget to mention is what a fantastic speaking voice she has! It's both serene and genuine! Both our families commented how excellent she was!! The license was filed promptly. Quite literally, she did everything perfectly! Highly recommended!"

"Kristen officiated our wedding and we can't say enough about what a wonderful and unique experience it was. We would highly recommend her to any couple looking for a wedding officiant. Even though we’d been together for over 20 years, we decided at the last minute (relative to bigger weddings) to get married seven weeks out. Kristen came to meet us at our home and immediately set us at ease. She interviewed us for about an hour and a half. She asked a lot of pertinent questions in an attempt to better understand our relationship, how we met, how we've grown together, etc. It was a lovely interview – we loved the questions she asked and how quickly she got to know us. She gave us a homework assignment - to find a poem or song to insert into the ceremony that might describe our relationship.
Shortly before the wedding, she emailed us a draft of the ceremony based on our requests (short and sweet, personal). She NAILED it! We changed only one sentence. And while WE didn't do our homework, she did, and had two beautiful poems which both described aspects of our relationship. We kept them both in the ceremony.
At the ceremony itself, it was hard to describe the quality that she had that grounded us. While it was a short and intimate ceremony (just our witnesses and the officiant), we were still nervous. I found that I was intermittently looking into my partner's eyes and intermittently looking into Kristen's, as she so calmingly presided over and walked us through this precious rite. She added so much to our wedding in terms of writing a truly personalized ceremony, adding beautiful poetry, inviting our witnesses to partake in a blessing of our rings, and simply her comforting presence. We are so appreciative of Kristen's role in legalizing our commitment. We will always have very fond memories of this ceremony."
Joel & Allan, October 13, 2013
"Kristen is a delight! We had breakfast together one Sunday, and she left with a good idea of who we are, and wrote a magical ceremony for us. She is professional, caring and insightful. You will be most pleased when she helps you prepare for the big day."
Ashley & Marco, September 28, 2013
"Reverend Kristen by far exceeded our expectations!! After reading all the amazing reviews about Kristen, I contacted her to see if she was available for our wedding date. She met with my husband and I to get to know us and everything we wanted out of our ceremony. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant! Kristen made us feel so comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire process. She personalized our entire ceremony to be unique to us. We have been getting so many compliments about how beautiful and memorable our ceremony was! We are so thankful that she could be part of our special day!! We highly recommend Kristen.. you won't be disappointed!"
Wayne & Jessica, September 7, 2013
"Rev. Pfeiffer was the absolute perfect choice for our wedding! She met with us for a couple of hours beforehand and asked us some "getting to know you" questions, which gave her a feel for the type of ceremony that we were looking for as well as the background info on our unique relationship.
She took that info, and with her insight into what made my wife and I "us", she crafted a completely custom ceremony that I feel captured the love my wife and I have for each other and our sense of humor. She even included a poem that she wrote just for us!
At the ceremony itself, she helped organize our guests and guided the event along smoothly. She put forth a very positive energy while performing the ceremony and afterwards, we had many people tell us how Rev. Pfeiffer seemed like an old friend who had been there for our whole relationship instead of someone that we found specifically to marry us.
Rev. Pfeiffer did everything that we asked of her and went above and beyond what we expected in her professional duties and is just a really genuinely awesome person. I'm glad that we had a chance to meet her, and include her in our special day. My only regret is that since she did such a great job the first time, we'll never have a need for her services again!"
"We could not have asked for better than Kristen. She personalized everything about our ceremony, right down to her shoes. She managed to capture us in a personal poem that we could never have dreamed up. Hands down, the absolute best choice we could have made for our Wedding. She made it great!"
Ronia & Veronica, June 22, 2013
"Kristen was such a blessing!! She's so peaceful, cool and laid back. She was super helpful before, during and after the wedding. Down to talking to our two young boys into participating in our wedding when they were resistant. Talked to our nervous bridal party members and put them as ease. Assisted me placing my boutonnière and calming my fiancé down and keeping us relaxed through a intense day. Kristen is like that friend you keep for a lifetime. She blended in perfectly on our wedding day; all while maintaining exceptional professionalism. Highly recommended. Act now! Kristen is the way to go! Heart of gold."
"Reverend Kristen Pfeiffer married my wife and I in an at-home ceremony. Not only was she amazing while performing the ceremony, she was a great help in the moments prior to the ceremony. It was wonderful to have an extra pair of hands on deck the day of the wedding. In preparation for the ceremony, Rev. Kristen took time to get to know my wife and I, which allowed her to prepare something absolutely beautiful and heartfelt for the day of the wedding. I would recommend Kristen to anyone getting married, she was professional, helpful, honest and just made our day extra special."
Lori Ann & James, July 14, 2012
"My husband and I chose Kristen to officiate our wedding, and we could not have picked a better person. She had wonderful suggestions, and she also added several personal details to our ceremony. Several guests after the wedding commented on how it was so different from other weddings and that the ceremony truly touched them. Another plus about Kristen, is that she worked with our children who were also part of our ceremony. Our union was a union of a whole family. This was very important to us, and she delivered a wedding that surpassed my greatest expectations. We loved her and you will too!!"
Kerri & Daniel, December 15, 2012
"Kristen is an amazing wedding officiant! My husband and I had a very offbeat, quirky, outdoor wedding in the middle of winter in New Hampshire. During an initial meeting with us, and some follow up e-mails and calls, Kristen helped us craft a ceremony that was reflective of our relationship--spiritual, fun, romantic, and not too serious. She made us feel special and did not rush the process (unlike many other wedding-related services). In the end, our wedding ceremony was beautiful, full of love, and perfect for us. I've had both friends and family ask about our officiant and we still receive comments about how much the ceremony made our attendees laugh and cry. We would highly recommend Kristen and can't thank her enough for making our wedding so memorable."
Sabrina & Andrew, October 10, 2010
"Kristen gave us the most heartfelt and beautiful ceremony that we could ever have wished for. We were Kristen’s first wedding as an officiant, and we chose her because she was a friend to us both but also has a great spiritual life and shared similar values in her life. Kristen was a rock that day- I was crying down the aisle and was very emotional about the experience, but she set a calming tone and helped me get through it with some laughs. We left most of the ceremony up to her, with a few guides of things that we wanted included and she made the ceremony so personal including stories from our relationship and some of her own guiding words for us. Kristen is special because she takes the time to understand the people she is with, she is a great listener, and she is just a caring, wonderful person. We were so lucky that she took us up on our request and anyone that has her as an officiant would be so lucky."
