Kimberly was absolutely fantastic to work with! From our first conversation, we felt that she would provide the type of service and experience we were hoping for, and she far exceeded our expectations. She was extremely helpful throughout the last six months, in helping to keep us on track with the ceremony planning, and ensuring our marriage license paperwork was in order. She was always a pleasure to speak with, always extremely warm and friendly, and also very well organized, which helped keep our stress levels at bay. When it came down to the ceremony itself, she knocked it out of the park! We received so many comments at the wedding on how beautiful everyone thought the ceremony was. Kimberly did such a wonderful job, I just cannot say enough good things about her!

Kimberly was so incredibly helpful, friendly, and professional. She followed-up emails with phone calls, and was incredibly prompt with all communications. As an out-of-state couple, we were grateful for her help filing our marriage paperwork at the Napa County Clerk office. She also provided many example ceremony scripts for our non-denominational wedding, as requested. She is a skilled orator and had a very professional appearance.

Highly recommended!

No less than 5 out of 5 stars on everything for Kimberly! She was the first person we met with when we arrived in Napa for our destination wedding and her positive energy was infectious and really helped us get excited for our ceremony. Kimberly is super organized and made the whole process very easy for us, not to mention delivered us a wonderful, emotional ceremony that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Of all the things the bride and groom have to worry about for their wedding, hiring Kimberly means that having a heartfelt, meaningful and flawless ceremony won't be one of them!

I would absolutely recommend Kimberly! She was organized and professional which was so refreshing in the planning process. She helped to calm my nerves leading up to and through the entire ceremony. She was willing to work with us to make sure we felt comfortable and with her guidance we had the most beautiful ceremony! The paperwork process was also extremely streamlined in working with Kimberly. It was so nice to have these details taken care of when we had so much else going on. I can't say enough good things about working with Kimberly and am so grateful she was a part of our day.

Throughout the entire wedding planning process, Kimberly was wonderful! She was able to anticipate our questions and needs and followed up with us on any questions or clarifications we needed while filling out the paperwork and planning for our wedding in Napa. When we met her at the court house to file our marriage license, she was so warm and it truly felt like we had known her for years. And to say she made our ceremony memorable is an understatement. Denny and I feel so lucky she was referred to us and we would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant in Napa.

She provided clear direction on what we need to do to obtain our marriage license, how to fill out the forms correctly and guided us through the process of tailoring our wedding to how we envisioned it. Not only did she provide excellent service, she gave us great referrals for vendors (which were amazing!), was very responsive to all of our questions, and she was terrific on the big day, as well. We would recommend her to anyone.

KImberly was an absolute dream to work with from the very first phone call I had with her. My husband and I both found her to be immensely prepared, accommodating, professional, and fun. We made all of our plans last minute and had several unforeseen circumstances arise, all of which Kimberly not only took in stride, but helped us navigate our way through. She was extremely pleasant and flexible throughout the entire process. Kimberly made a point of sitting down with my husband and me prior to the ceremony, and we connected with her immediately. She put us at ease and we knew we were in the right hands. I can't say enough how much we enjoyed meeting and working with Kimberly; she is a pro and a joy.

Kimberly was an absolute dream to work with! We weren't sure we wanted to hire an officiant, but looking back, it was one of the best decisions we made. Kimberly makes the whole process SO much easier - especially when planning a wedding from 3000 miles away! She emails you with ceremony templates, helps you figure out wording and timing of your ceremony, even helps you find other wedding vendors if you need them! She was SO available (phone, Skype, whatever) and always returned my calls/emails within a few hours. She also makes the process of applying for a marriage license easy... she reviews your application beforehand, and meets you at the clerk's office to file it so that the whole process takes less than 5 minutes!
Above all else, she is just about the sweetest person you could imagine. Having her standing up there with us on our wedding day felt so comfortable and special!
All in all... she was a FANTASTIC choice! Would not hesitate to recommend Kimberly to anyone!

My husband and I planned our Napa wedding from across the country in NYC, so we needed an officant that was good at communicating and would give us the relaxed, non-religious ceremony we wanted. Kimberly was great; easy to talk to, fast at replying to questions, and helpful in explaining and arranging the marriage license process, especially at the Napa County Clerk's office. In planning our ceremony, Kimberly provided us with many examples and information. Once we put together an idea of the ceremony we wanted, she helped us perfect it. She scheduled regular check-ins throughout the year and was always available by phone, Skype, and email for any questions or concerns. She also made a point of getting to know me and my husband, which made us feel special and at ease. She is very professional, and made us all feel at ease before and during the ceremony.

I recommend Kimberly for anyone wanting a relaxed and meaningful event.

My husband and I decided to elope from Ireland all the way to Napa Valley. Initially, planning a wedding so far from home was proving to be daunting and confusing. Once I began working with Kimberly Thompson, everything fell into place. Kimberly is extremely personable and professional; she is knowledgeable about marriage licence requirements and she provided all necessary information in a clear, concise and easily understood way. I had plenty of email and telephone contact with Kimberly prior to the wedding. She responded to all my emails quickly and was very flexible around the significant time zone differences for phone calls.

My husband and I created our own wedding ceremony, selecting from a series of beautiful and touching pre-written templates, and we were able to include a section which allowed us to exchange our own, personal vows.

On the day, Kimberly was enthusiastic and welcoming, and delivered a beautiful ceremony. From the start we were in very safe hands and our marriage certificates were waiting for us when we returned from our honeymoon!

What an amazing job Kimberly Thompson recently did officiating my wedding! From the first time we spoke with her, to the in-person meetings, the help in getting our wedding license and the day of the event--she was wonderful and we're so happy she was our officiant.
The cost was well worth it and an incredble value considering what we got. It included 2 in-person meetings, helping us with all ceremony logistics, assisting with all marriage legal paper work and meeting us at the courthouse to apply for our marriage license (she is so organized and knows all the courthouse emplyees so this process only took about 5 mins), and after your ceremony she mails all legal documents off so that when you return from your honeymoon, your marriage license is in the mail! All of this on top of the incredible job she did officiating the wedding--Her command over the crowd and speaking style had everyone asking us where we found Kimberly because she did such a great job! Highly reccomend!

Kimberly Thompson was so helpful during our wedding process. We eloped in Napa and were completely relying on our vendors in lieu of meeting them in advance of our wedding. Kimberly made us feel extremely comfortable from the beginning and when we finally met we were so happy with how everything turned out. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and it was a unique and customized ceremony just for us. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

My husband and I were married by Kimberly in August and wanted to share the wonderful experience we had. We were so happy with the ceremony and had complements from our guests too.

Kimberly helped us with everything from preparing the ceremony through to obtaining our marriage license. Living in Australia, we weren't at all familiar with US processes for obtaining a license but Kimberly made it very easy, providing us with the documents, making and attending our appointment with us and filing for the certified copies after the wedding (which were posted directly to us in Australia).

My husband and I were married by Kimberly in August and wanted to share the wonderful experience we had. We were so happy with the ceremony and had complements from our guests too.

Kimberly helped us with everything from preparing the ceremony through to obtaining our marriage license. Living in Australia, we weren't at all familiar with US processes for obtaining a license but Kimberly made it very easy, providing us with the documents, making and attending our appointment with us and filing for the certified copies after the wedding (which were posted directly to us in Australia).

We could not have asked for a more wonderful experience. Each step was so simple-between the marriage license, choice of ceremony, the ability to include our own personal vows and Kimberly having them there on our big day for us- making our day worry free! It exceeded all expectations and made our day perfect!

Kimberly was fantastic throughout the entire process-we could not have asked for a better, more professional and organized, not to mention fun, officiant. Throughout the process Kimberly kept us on track and focused. She helped us select and write our vows with professional guidance and judgement. She also helped us easily obtain our marriage license and made the entire process smooth. During the ceremony, it was obvious that Kimberly had taken the time to practice our vows and presented them confidently. Above all, Kimberly is a fun, entertaining officiant and I thouroughly enjoyed working with her through the entire process I would highly recommend Kimberly as an officiant.

I can't imagine a more perfect experience with an officiant. Kimberly was professional, on-time, responsive, personable and made our day so memorable. We are so glad we went with a professional instead of friends or family - she was still able to make the experience really unique but knew all the ins-and-outs of the marriage license process!

One word: AMAZING! I was a Texas bride trying to coordinate a wedding in Napa. I had never been to Napa and grew continuously more and more frustrated with the lack of response I was receiving from many vendors. At wits end, I found Kimberly and within one day everything was planned-- my venue, everything. Anyone questioning whether they should choose Kimberly for their special day is welcome to call me/email me personally (get my contact information from Kimberly) as I am 100% confident she is the absolute best.

Thank you Kimberly for an unbelievably amazing day!!! From the marraige license to the actual ceremony you made the entire experience perfect!!!

When my husband and I first started thinking about our wedding ceremony, we knew we wanted something that reflected our relationship, our sense of humor, incorporated our families and brought in elements of both our religions (he’s Catholic and I’m Jewish) without it seeming too religious or traditional. Right from the start, Kimberly understood exactly what we were going for and worked with us to create the perfect ceremony.

Kimberly was extremely knowledgeable about the marriage license process. She went through all the paperwork with us ahead of time and even went with us to the court house to get our license. Any time we had questions- Kim was always available to answer them.

On the day of the wedding, Kimberly arrived early and spent the time getting to know our families and guests. The ceremony itself was beautiful-even better than I had hoped! Kim did an amazing job- by the end of the ceremony our guests were crying and laughing. Our family and friends are still talking about how perfect our ceremony was and how much they loved Kimberly.

I honestly can’t say enough good things about Kimberly- she made the whole process easy and stress free. Her warmth and kind genuine personality shines through in her ceremonies- you can tell that she loves what she does. Thank you Kim, for making our wedding day so special!

Kimberly was wonderful to say the least! Since the very beginning we knew we wanted an officiant that was professional, a great communicator, and personable and we couldn't have found a better match. She listened to what we wanted and gave constructive suggestions and helped our ceremony become unique and special, tailored to who we are as a couple. She was always quick to respond to our calls and emails which was obviously appreciated! On the day of the wedding she delivered a beautiful ceremony which was heartfelt and special that all of our family and friends were impressed with! Throughout the whole process Kimberly was our confidant and a part of our wedding planning support team. She was always a pleasure to speak with and maintained professionalism and enthusiasm. I highly recommend working with Kimberly if you want to have an easy and good time planning your ceremony, you will be surprised at how valuable she will be! Thanks again Kimberly!

When planning our wedding from Canada, I thought we would have a lot of paper work and that it would be difficult; it was neither! Planning our wedding with Kimberly was simple and easy. She was always quick to respond to a phone call or email.

We only had two months to plan our wedding and Kimberly kept our minds at ease the entire time. Kimberly sent us all of the paperwork we needed to fill out in advance and even offered to review it. She emailed many ceremonies to choose from and we were able to put together a ceremony that reflected us. Kimberly also met with us the morning of our wedding at the county clerks office while we filled out our marriage licence. In less than 10 minutes we had all of the paperwork filled out and completed. Before the ceremony she walked us through what was going to happen and answered any last minute questions we had.

I would recommend Kimberly to anyone. She made our wedding day a day we will cherish forever!

Working with Kimberly Thompson, A beautiful Ceremony Napa Valley, was absolutely amazing!. Kimberly was always very professional, organized and sensitive to bring all the personalized elements and our families together.

From the very first time the bride and groom spoke with Kimberly, they knew Kimberly was the one they wanted to perform their ceremony.

Kimberly met all their expectations and more. Meeting them at the court house to complete the necessary paper work which took all the stress out of the marriage application process and planning for a destination wedding from Seattle.

Then, in Kimberly’s busy schedule she took the time to meet with the bride and grooms mothers. After meeting with us and talking with the bride and groom, Kimberly asked the moms to write letters to our children and read it to them on their wedding day. We were of course honored. This made for the most unique and amazing ceremony which was flawless.

In Kimberly’s special warm and sensitive manor, she also made a dedication to the bride’s father who passed away three years prior almost to the day. We were all so touched.

Thank you Kimberly for all the special attention, love and memories that you brought to our families and friends.

Mother of the Bride.

Kimberly was an important part of our wedding. We were combining two families and she was sensitive to all of our needs. She was professional, organized, and comforting on the very big day. I never once worried about the ceremony since I knew she was over-seeing all the details. She has a very calming confidence about her and she was a smiling force to focus on during the actual vows. I would recommend her to anyone and we hope she can help us renew our vows in the future.

My husband and I recently eloped in Napa. We took a bit of a risk planning our wedding in a place we had never visited, but we were confident in entrusting Kimberly with the details of our special day. She made herself entirely available to us. We relied on her for help with every aspect of our ceremony, from selecting the location and photographer to obtaining the marriage license. We could not have been more satisfied! By providing detailed guidance at each step of the process, she made it very easy for us to plan our wedding from the opposite end of the country. We particularly appreciated her help with creating our unique, personal ceremony that best reflected our relationship. Moreover, Kimberly is a fantastic communicator - she first reached out to me within hours of my initial inquiry, kept me up-to-speed with details about my ceremony, and provided prompt, thorough responses to all of my questions. On the day of our wedding, she made us feel like gold. Her enthusiasm was contagious, and she beautifully delivered our ceremony. We couldn't be more thrilled with the way that our day turned out. Everything was perfect. For a trustworthy, well organized, and genuinely kind wedding officiant, I would absolutely recommend Kimberly Thompson.

We are so happy that Kimberly Thompson performed our ceremony! We planned our wedding from the east coast and Kim made herself available to us by phone or email whenever we had questions or needed guidance. The day we arrived in Napa she met us at the courthouse and personally walked us through the marriage license application process--she made everything so easy. We had some great phone conversations throughout the planning process, and when we finally met her for the first time it was as though we had known her forever.

Kim, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. Big hugs, Leigh & Ed

Kimberly Thompson was a calming presence before, during and after our wedding. My then-fiance and I were able to personalize our wedding ceremony by picking and choosing between all of her carefully thought out ceremony samples. We loved the end-result-- it was very "us!"

Also, she gave us peace of mind by taking care of all of the marriage license technicalities. I never had to fuss about any of that (thanks Kimberly for doing that for me!), which was a relief in the midst of wedding planning!

I'm also glad that she advised us to write our personal vows-- we were thinking about not doing it, but she urged us to, and honestly, the wedding ceremony wouldn't have felt complete without it.

It's always a pleasure to speak with Kimberly, on the phone, in person or via email. She responds very quickly to any questions, which was so helpful. Also, she's personable, professional and warm and made my husband and I feel completely at ease and taken cared of. Having her marry us definitely calmed my bridal nerves!

We didn't really know what to look for when searching for an officiant, but after we met Kimberly, we knew we had made the right choice. We definitely recommend her!

She was very responsive and helpful throughout the whole planning process. She took a lot of time and care in explaining the ceremony and license requirements. She welcomed our questions and gave perfect advice. Kimberly is well organized and very good at what she does. Our ceremony was flawless thanks to her! We highly recommend Kimberly!

If I could give Kimberly more than 5 stars in each category I would! From the moment I first contacted Kimberly, she made me feel extremely comfortable and really listened to our needs. She has always been extremely professional, kind, warm and so easy to get along with. Throughout the planning process, my husband and I grew close to Kimberly and met with her several times so that she could get to know us and we could get to know her. Kimberly really listened and helped to create the ceremony that we had always wanted! She provides her professional opinion but also gives you the space to create the ceremony that you want. She was also so supportive throughout the whole planning process and she always made my husband and I feel so special and like she valued us as much as we valued her. She delivered a beautiful ceremony on the wedding day and I am so glad that such a wonderful person married us! She became way more than just our officiant, but a confidant and someone we know that will always be our biggest cheerleader! If you are looking for a supportive and warm officiant that lets you create your own ceremony that is special to you, I would highly suggest hiring Kimberly as your officiant! Thank you Kimberly, for being so wonderful!

If I could give Kimberly 100 stars, I would!! 5 stars just simply isn't enough for how incredible she is! My husband used to work in the hospitality industry and had heard Kimberly perform hundreds of ceremonies. He loved her style SO much, he told her she would be performing his ceremony someday.....Before he even knew me!!!

Words cannot describe how truly thankful we are to have worked with Kimberly. She is such a kind and genuine person. She has a heart of gold and will stop at nothing to make sure your ceremony is absolutely perfect! Kimberly takes the time to get to know her couples so you can be sure your ceremony will have that extra special touch. During our ceremony selection process, it was important to my husband and I to do a butterfly release. Kimberly provided excellent guidance not only recommending a beautiful bible passage for the release, but she also told us where to purchase the butterflies! That butterfly release was the most beautiful and meaningful moment of the entire day and it wouldn't have been possible without Kimberly's touch!! Our guests are still talking about how special and personal it was! I am not only grateful, but I am very proud and honored to say we had Kimberly perform our beautiful ceremony!! Thank you Kimberly for all you do! We love you!!

We found Kimberly after a few online searches for officiants in the Sonoma/Napa area. I (the Bride, now wife) had always assumed that my wedding would be a traditional Church ceremony, so had never given much thought to "designing" a ceremony. In fact, I was almost suspicious of the whole idea - I had been to too many weddings in which the personal touches made to a ceremony seemed to take away from the solemnity of the event. Well, on May 6th, Kimberly Thompson performed a wedding ceremony for us that was not only equal parts solemn and joyful, but also a perfect reflection of how my husband and I felt about our relationship, our special day, and the commitment we were about to embark on. Throughout the process of creating our ceremony, Kimberly was quick to respond to all our questions, happy to provide insight any time we were confused (there were quite a few such times), kept us on schedule (you'll appreciate this more than you know in the hectic months leading up to your wedding), and made a true effort to understand us as a couple. The breadth of her experience speaks for itself, but I want to point out just how important this is - creating a ceremony is something a lot of us will only do once in our lives, so having the guidance of someone who has seen 20 years' worth of ceremonies is priceless. Finally, Kimberly really became a special person to us in the months we worked together. After the ceremony was over, I really wanted to be sure we get some photos with her as well as with our families, because that is how much her involvement in our wedding meant to me (we even got some silly poses in). In sum - if you want a wedding ceremony that speaks to your heart, one that addresses multiple traditions (and maybe even sensitivities that your relatives or other important guests may have), and if you want an officiant to whom you will feel truly connected as you are standing up to make some of the most important vows of your life, give Kimberly a call. You won't regret it. And if you do, I owe you a coffee.

Working with Kimberly was one of the best experiences we had when planning our wedding. We knew immediatly after talking with her that she was the perfect person to be our officiant. Our families have different religious backgrounds and we hoped to find someone who not only understood that, but who could find common ground between our beliefs and create a ceremony that would resonate in a very meaningful way to all of our friends and family. Right from the start, we loved working with Kimberly and she made planning a ceremony from 3,000 miles away easy and fun! Her dedication to clients is unwavering and she always made herself available for phone conversations to plan the ceremony, or to just check in, say "hi" or just to see how we were doing.

After our wedding we had so many guests tell us that our ceremony was one of the most meaningful and beautiful that they had attended. The words were very intimate and seemed perfect for us. These compliments are all thanks to Kimberly and her hard work to help us create a ceremony that was unique and perfect for us! I would reccomend Kimberly over and over again!

After my first conversation with Kimberly Thompson, I knew she would be the perfect officiant for our destination wedding. Kimberly is a warm and engaging person and she took the time to learn about us. She was always accessible and made us feel like we were her only priority.

Kimberly is probably the most organized person I have ever met--she followed up with us precisely when she told us she would. She is well respected in Napa--all of our vendors had nothing but glowing remarks about her. Kimberly made the arduous task of applying for our out-of-state marriage license painless and hassle-free.

The ceremony itself was almost spellbinding. To this day, people still talk about the amazing performance that Kimberly conducted. She worked tirelessly with our parents and bridal party with their speeches and always had ideas to bring out the very best to our ceremony.

I can't write a more glowing recommendation for anyone--ESPECIALLY if you are an out-of-town bride!

The choices we had for ceremony design were impressive, and she was willing to work with us if we had desired changes or specific statements we wanted included. Your ceremony should be about you...and ours certainly was. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out, and can proudly say without being boastful...our wedding was perfect. Thank you Kim!

The choices we had for ceremony design were impressive, and she was willing to work with us if we had desired changes or specific statements we wanted included. Your ceremony should be about you...and ours certainly was. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out, and can proudly say without being boastful...our wedding was perfect. Thank you Kim!

When my husband and I began our search for a wedding officiant, we weren't sure what to expect because we didn't have anybody to approach that we had a personal relationship with. In searching for an officiant in the Sonoma County area, we came across A Beautiful Ceremony Napa Valley's website. From my first contact with Kimberly Thompson, I felt like I was talking to a long time friend, and my husband felt as immediately comfortable with her when we met over a Skype session.

From that point forward, Kimberly was so responsive and helpful throughout the process, and took the time to get to know us so that our ceremony would be special and personal. She supplied multiple sample ceremonies to give us ideas in creating our own. When I wasn't sure how to include all of the details that I wanted in the ceremony in a way that would flow properly, Kimberly was right there to make suggestions and work with me until we got it perfect.

Kimberly took the time to meet us at the court house and make sure that the marriage license process was smooth and painless. She even went above and beyond to assist and guide me through some family issues that came up during the wedding planning.

It's been a month since our wedding, and our guests are still commenting on how beautiful our wedding ceremony was, which we owe all to Kimberly.

Kimberly at A Beautiful Ceremony Napa Valley was amazing to work with. Kimberly made the entire process--from start to finish--simple. Kimberly not only made herself available to speak with us on the phone as often as we needed but she also took the time to meet with us, personally, Not only that, I could always count on her responding to emails in an hour or less. Her availability and responsiveness is truly unparalleled. All of our guests even complimented our ceremony! She gave guidance and ideas. When you are planning a wedding and trying to take care of so many vendors and so many details, having a vendor that really understands timing is crucial. Believe me I am a wedding planner and to find a officiant as organized and caring as Kimberly is hard to find. We could go on an on about Kimberly. she was easy and pleasant to work with and was always professional. She is a warm and amazing person I would recomend any couple to book her for there weddng.

We look forward to keeping in touch with her.

Not only that, I could always count on her responding to emails in an hour or less. Her availability and responsiveness is truly unparalleled. On top of all of this, she helped us put together an amazing wedding ceremony that we loved. Some of our guests even complimented our ceremony! She gave guidance and ideas but at the same time let us use our creativity to put together a ceremony that we really loved. She also kept us on track with completing the ceremony so that we would not be scrambling to put something together at the last minute.

Kimberly is the most amazing wedding officiant! Even though we never met her until it was time to sign the marriage license, we knew we were in great hands from the moment we spoke over the phone. During that first talk, I felt like we became friends and we spent about an hour on the phone. Kimberly was very thorough and organized and helped us pick out the ceremony readings by sending us a lot of examples. It made it very easy to write our vows; we picked bits and pieces from the various examples she sent. Kimberly gave us some great tips and walked us through the entire process.
Our ceremony ws exactly what we had hoped; light, funny, touching and just exactly the way we are!
Thank you Kimberly for making our wedding absolutely perfect!

Kimberly was a fantastic officiants. We met her about six months prior to our wedding and we did not have the faintest idea how we wanted our ceremony to be. Kimberly helped us design a marvelous ceremony; truly unique and meaningful and very appropriate to us. She kept us on track and handled everything with utmost professionalism and perfection. Our ceremony on our wedding day was the highlight of many guests, including my father. She was poised, calm and yet joyous. She was excellent... I wish we could repeat this experience with her over and over again. Thank you, Kimberly, from the bottom of our hearts. We will forever be grateful to you and your gorgeous way of officiating our wedding.

We can't thank Kimberly enough for all that she did for us. From the first time we met with her, we knew she was the perfect person to work with... and she proved to be everything we thought and so much more. She definitely went above and beyond her job description. We were so happy in our decision to work with her.

In planning our ceremony, Kimberly provided us with many examples and information. Once we put together an idea of the ceremony we wanted, she helped us perfect it. She scheduled regular check-ins throughout the year and was always available by phone and email for any questions or concerns. She also made a point of getting to know me and my husband personally, which made us feel special and at ease. While Kimberly is very professional, she really made us feel as though our wedding was being performed by an old friend.

Kimberly stands out in the work she does. She is organized, professional, experienced, friendly, and not afraid to take charge when needed to make your ceremony the most special day of your life. Many of our guests came up to us throughout the night and told us how wonderful our officiant was. Some even thought she was our wedding planner because if she saw something she could help with before the ceremony, she jumped right in. We are so grateful.

We strongly recommend Kimberly. She played a huge part in making our wedding day truly the most fun and special day of our lives. We will be passing on her information every chance we get.

She really got to know us as a couple, asking us about our families, our lives, and our hopes and dreams. She worked with us to create a personalized and unique ceremony that was absolutely beautiful.

Kimberly is a wonderful person who truly cares about her couples. Seeing her standing at the altar next to my future husband had a calming effect on me - I knew that she was our friend who cared deeply about our ceremony, but more importanly cared deeply about our marriage. I am forever grateful!

From the first draft to the fifth and sixth of our vows, she was always motivated to get us the wedding ceremony that we've always dreamed of. Her experience and knowledge as an officiant provided us with the best feedback to reach the perfect amount of humor and seriousness in our vows. Kim presented our vows flawlessly and with a lot of heart; it didn't sound read at all.

Not only did she steer us in the right direction with a venue,photographer, florist..the list goes on and on with the point of contacts Kimberly referred us to, she was honest and so thoughtful. Planning a wedding from thousands of miles away is a stressful and tough thing to do because you can not see, taste etc etc all the things for your special day however with Kimberly by our side every step of the way the stress was gone within the first 5 minutes of our initial conversation. We could of not found a better person to share this special day with. Words can not describe the appreciation and gratification we have, Kimberly you are truly an amazing person and we thank you for making our day so memorable.

Planning a wedding from thousands of miles away is a stressful and tough thing to do because you can not see, taste etc etc all the things for your special day however with Kimberly by our side every step of the way the stress was gone within the first 5 minutes of our initial conversation. We could of not found a better person to share this special day with. Words can not describe the appreciation and gratification we have, Kimberly you are truly an amazing person and we thank you for making our day so memorable.

Your number one fans from FL,

Kimberly is great! Kimberly is both professional and personable. She is very passionate about her job, her clients and their families. That passion shows in every action that she takes. Kimberly is also open minded and flexible. She really helped us to create a ceremony that was unique and different but still flowed together smoothly. Kimberly is highly organized and as any bride-to-be knows the less we have to think about the better! Through a year of planning, calling and emailing Kimberly not only became our officiant but also a personal friend.

I would/have recommend Kimberly to friends and family! She was absolutely fantastic to work with! She worked with us to customize every part of the ceremony. We were able to pull bits and pieces from several ceremony options so that our end product really fit our wedding vibe and personality! Kimberly was a huge help on the big day also she was able to coordinate all of the wedding party queues so that everyone knew where to be and when (all without a rehearsal) :)

I whole heartedly recommend working with Kimberly for all of your wedding needs, she really made our day so special!

Kimberly was an awesome officiant. We had a destination wedding and getting our marriage license was one thing that was not a stressor on our to-do list. Kimberly made it so easy to make sure we were legal, and I'm sure it was easier than it would have been if we would have got married at home! Also, planning the cerermony was a breeze. She is so easy to work with and gives you ideas but also lets you take the lead on what she will say during the ceremony. So much more beautiful and personal than most weddings I have attended. She is professional but still very easy to talk to and always just a phone call away. Thanks again Kimberly, for helping to make our day great!

Kimberly was absolutely amazing and readily available for months and weeks leading up to the wedding with any questions I may have had. Everything ran so smoothly thanks to Kimberly and her assistant Sonja and it was so nice to be able to relax on the wedding day knowing they had it all firmly under control. Our ceremony was beautiful and exactly how I envisioned it, and Kimberly went above and beyond our expectations in her assistance and invaluable guidance during the whole overwhelming process of getting married! I 100% recommend her services to anyone who is looking for an officiant in the Napa area.

I can only say that I have been waiting months to write this review. I have nothing but great things to say about Kimberly Thompson of A Beautiful Ceremony. Kim is not only a great minister and officiant but an absolute pleasure to work with. Once you hire Kim to peform your ceremony you can rest assured that you will have both an meaningful and beautiful ceremony, as well as a someone who will manage that ceremony from start to finish.

We hired Kim to perform our wedding after an extensive search. Our budget was very tight, so after our initial conversation, I regretted that we wouldn't be able to have her peform the ceremony. However Kim is so great. She worked within our budget and I am so happy that she did. We actually recieved a lower quote afterwards, but I knew that Kim was who I trusted to peform our ceremony.

Kim is a great communicator and email and calls from time to time to check up on you and make sure that things are going okay. She has an extensive portofolio beatifully written work. She will work with you to help make your ceremony unique and meaningful. Kim goes through each draft of the ceremony, double checking all the details so that on your wedding day your ceremony will be perfect. She even meets with you at the county clerk to make sure that all your paperwork is completed and correct!

On the day of our ceremony Kim did an amazing job performing our ceremony. As always she was professional and pleasant. After our ceremony many of our guests commented on how nice it was and how much they enjoyed it.

There are a lot of people who will perform your ceremony, but if you want someone who has years of knowledge and experience and someone who will go the extra mile, then I highly recommend Kimberly Thompson.

Dear Kimberly,

We wanted to thank you personally,outside of our review, for the wonderful experience we had working with you. Your knowledge and expertise were a comfort beyond words and we could not be happier with our wedding day.

On to the review...
We found Kimberly through an on line search. We wanted someone who was capable of delivering a seamless presentation while not sounding like a robot. We knew after the first phone call that she was the right choice to help make our ceremony exactly how we imagined it; a representation of our feelings for each other, the importance of our family and friends and how special love is. She was well-organized, friendly and professional. She listened to our thoughts and concerns, answered our questions and providing great feedback. I can tell you that it was a major relief finding Kimberly; we knew we were in good hands.
In the months leading up to our wedding Kimberly was very accessible and helpful. The planning process went very smoothly. We wanted a very personal ceremony, one that really depicted our relationship, our views on marriage and the importance of our family and friends. Kimberly provided wonderful guidance throughout the process, really helping us get the ceremony we wanted. The end result was a beautiful ceremony that really reflected what was in our hearts! It was personal and had a wonderful message. Many of our guests have commented on how amazing the ceremony was and how touching our message was, they really felt it reflected our personalities and relationship. After the ceremony everyone was asking where we found our Officiant, they couldn’t believe how wonderful she was.


Kimberly was exactly what we were looking for. Through thoughtful prepping and communication she helped us create a ceremony that represented us as a couple, we couldn’t have been happier.

Sincerely,
L&S

We will treasure the vow renewal ceremony that marked our 20th anniversary forever! Thank you, Kimberly!

We are from Oklahoma and were planning our wedding in Napa, California. Kimberly was not only our officiant, but a great lifeline and wealth of information regarding everything from what to expect from the weather to where and go eat. She allowed us to compose a wonderful ceremony by pulling from several templates to create a ceremony unique to us. She was in constant contact, and never hard to get in contact with. She met us the day before at the tag agency to help with the process of getting the marriage certificate (she had already told us what we would need and how much it would cost) and then took care of the paperwork after the ceremony. The day of the wedding she arrived early, we took pictures and everything was perfect! Per my new husband "she was great!!" hehe guys like to simplify!

Kimberly Thompson of A Beautiful Ceremony was just wonderful! She helped us prepare, and then officiated, an incredibly meaningful ceremony that reflected our feelings about our relationship and our hopes for what our marriage will be. Throughout the process, Kimberly was very attentive to details and could not have been more responsive. She also offered her insights and recommendations on vendors and other matters outside the context of just the ceremony. This was extremely helpful to me since I was planning the entire wedding from the other side of the country. Despite the fact that we were not able to meet Kimberly until a few days before the ceremony, we developed a wonderful rapport with her and felt very comfortable with her. I could not be more pleased with Kimberly and our ceremony!

My husband and I live in WA state and wanted to get married in Napa. I was a little nervous about making wedding arrangements from a distance. When I first spoke with Kimberly Thompson on the phone, she assured me she would take care of everything. Kimberly did more than that. She went above and beyond our expectations to make sure we had our license the day we got married. She emailed us several examples of wedding vows that we could pick from or edit. If she wasn't emailing me, she was calling me on the phone to ask Dan and I questions or just to confirm things. She is a true professional in her work and puts her heart into everything she says and does. Kimberly did a beautiful ceremony for Dan and I. We are so incredilbly blessed to been able to have Kimberly officiate our wedding ceremony.

Kimberly is the best thing you could do for your wedding! As an out-of-state bride I was concerned about how to make sure everything came together for our wedding, but she helps you to create the most unique ceremony for you, so that everything feels individual. She really reviews everything in a great deal of detail so that nothing is missed out and she is very proactive in keeping everything on schedule. She helps her couples through the logistics of getting the license and is fun and professional on the rehearsal day, putting your whole wedding party at ease going in to the big day. Finally, she is just lovely to speak to throughout - it was always a pleasure when I had a call with kimberly coming up, and I was so excited to meet her in person just a few days before the ceremony. I just can't say enough good things about working with Kimberly, and our guests were absolutely raving about how personal and meaningful the ceremony was. Highly recommend her!

Kimberly was amazing. She provided more than a dozen sample ceremonies and from those allowed us to create a custom ceremony that truly reflected our personalities, relationship, and love. She's a genuine person who loves what she does and works with you to ensure that your 'special day' is personalized. She's extremely professional, but is approachable and friendly. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to have a beautiful, memorable ceremony.

You never know if the day you dream of and plan for years in advance will play out exactly as you've envisioned it? This is mostly because you just imagine the day of your wedding to simply be 'perfect.' You've thought through the details, but you've never been through the experience before to know if what you imagine will happen can actually happen as you think it should happen. This is why everyone needs a Kimberly for their ceremony.

From the planning and customization of the ceremony itself, to the moment the bride and groom stand before their loved ones, through the 'I do' and the finalization of paperwork, Kimberly made each milestone easy, enjoyable and memorable. Her energy and excitement paralleled ours on our special day. And it made the moment all that more perfect.

Kimberly has a knack for turning new clients into old friends in a matter of days. With her help, the ceremony was fluid, emotional and personal– for two people who have the highest expectations in everything we do. It's too bad I can't add more stars to this perfect rating.

Kimberly was our officiant for our recent wedding at V.Sattui Winery in St. Helena, California. Kimberly was an absolute pleasure to work with from the very first phone call. She made me feel like planning my wedding from the East Coast would be easy and smooth and made herself available for any questions I had about the area or otherwise. I started speaking with Kimberly long before we had to, but she was always willing to answer questions and helped me get our ceremony completed early so that I could check this off my long list of to do's. I was so pleased to meet Kimberly in person when we arrived in Napa. My fiance and I were both so impressed that she came to meet with us and we both knew she would be the "icing on the cake" for the wedding. Kimberly's energy and enthusiasm and committment to her couples is unmatched. Thank you for everything!

There is one simple anecdote that sums up the dedication and love that Kimberly has for her couples. The night before we were going to meet her she went out on a industry mixer at a new local restaurant. Hours later she was feeling ill - she had food poisoning. Despite feeling awful - and not looking her best - she refused to cancel on us. She was even early for our appointment the following morning. Kimberly was her usual warm, outgoing self. She made the process of obtaining our marriage license pain free. In fact every interaction we had with her was delightful.

One additional factor that makes our experience unique is that we had to plan our event from thousands of miles away in Michigan. And also due to budget constraints we were never able to visit with our vendors in person. However, from the first time we spoke with Kimberly we knew we had found the perfect officiant. She quickly understood our vision and helped us to tailor the ceremony to fit our specific needs. Her response time to e-mail was incredibly quick and efficient. She was always professional and organized.

We are both in the hospitality industry. David is an executive chef at a luxury hotel and Christina is a social catering manager at a boutique hotel. David cooks for dozens of weddings throughout the year, while Christina plans them. Due to our background, our stanadards for hospitality are extremely high. And while some vendors did not always meet our expectations, Kimberly routinely exceeded them. Her compassion and professionalism is unmatched. Our ceremony was exactly how we wanted it and will be a moment we never forget. We can't thank her enough for all the hard work she put forth for our big day.

Kimberly was very easy to work with and helpd us create a personal ceremony that was perfect for us. We planned a destination wedding in Napa, and Kimberly's warmth and organization made planning a wedding from afar not only possible, but easy. After the ceremony, our friends and family told us that the ceremony was truly a reflection of us and our relationship.

Kimberly showed tremendous kindness to our families, and she took the time to speak with our guests after the ceremony. She is sincere and seems to genuinely enjoy the entire process of being an officiant.

I would recommend Kimberly to any couple who wants a warm, friendly, and organizaed woman to officiate their wedding.

I can honestly say that Kimberly Thompson is responsible for the amazing experience that my husband and I shared for our wedding. From the very beginning of the planning process she was available and there for me. When my husband and I started planning a wedding, we knew we did not have the time to plan a traditional wedding. I am a full-time graduate student in an intensive and extremely time-consuming medical program in TX and my husbands is just starting graduate school while working full-time. After realizing that we did not want the stress of a large wedding, we decided to elope in Napa, CA. However, we still wanted a beautiful and meaningful wedding. Kimberly was recommended to me by another vendor in the wedding business in that area. After viewing her website and speaking with her on the phone, I knew she was perfect. She is extremely professional and comforting and has an elegant style. Her choices of ceremonies are very tasteful and personal and she is more than willing to work with you to customize a wedding that is meaningful and what you desire.
Aside from her role as my officient, Kimberly truly became my friend over the passing months. She would often call me to check in and see how I was doing and if she could help with any part of the process. She kept me on track and made sure everything was done in a timely manner. She often gave me great suggestions for places to go, restaurants, a cleaners, and so much more. She was always available to me. My husband and I were both so impressed with how reliable she was. I sometimes felt that I was her only bride (which I know certainly was not the case). Whenever I told other vendors that Kimberly was my officient, they told me that I had the best in the business and that I had nothing to worry about. They were absolutely right. Kimberly made the process of planning a destination wedding painless and enjoyable. She gave us a beautifully intimate ceremony and overall experience that I will never forget. I cannot say enough about how grateful I am to have had Kimberly Thompson officiate our ceremony and now have her as one of our valued friends. She is an adorable and wonderful person that you will be honored to work with. Thank you so much Kimberly and we cannot wait to come visit you soon again in Napa! (Daniel & Kristi)

Quite simply perfect!

My wife and I really cannot recommend Kimberly highly enough. From the initial point of contact Kimberly provided us with all the reassurance we needed that we had found the right officiant for our ceremony. Kimberley was able to provide us with a plentiful supply of text with suggestions and useful guidelines for the preparation of our vows.

On the morning of our wedding Kimberly took time out to meet us at the county court office where we applied for our marriage license. It was great for us to have someone with us who knew the staff at the office, It really did relax us to know that someone was there to make sure the paperwork would be dealt with so that we could focus on enjoying the day ahead.

Kimberly brought an air of professionalism & sincerity which definitely alleviated the nerves!

During the planning stages of our wedding we were in weekly contact with Kimberly exchanging information and asking questions. Kimberley was always swift to respond (I'm talking minutes!) no matter what day or time.

I have no hesitation in recommending Kimberly as the perfect officiant for any size or type of wedding. I guarantee she will not disappoint. She helped to truly make it "a beautiful ceremony".

Kimberly did an amazing job for our ceremony. She was a joy to work with and was always available whenever I needed to speak with her. Her organization made things so easy and flawless. We loved that we could write our own ceremony, without having to actually write everything ourselves. We pulled from a large collection of different types of ceremonies to create one that best fit us, and it was perfect. All our guests loved our ceremony and vows, and I couldn't have asked for a better officiant than Kimberly.

From the first day we talked, I felt she was personally invested in not only our ceremony, but in our wonderful marriage ahead! Friends and family have told us over and over how personal, romantic, and meaningful our ceremony was and that it was the most memorable occasion they have ever attended. The vows were really the highlight.....and when you promise to "play with each other everyday" that truly says it all. Many thanks Kimberley!!

I think it is pertinent to say that we worked long distance with Kimberly; she resides in California and we are in Alaska. I cannont imagine having anyone else preside. Kimberly gave us guidence but left the decision making up to us. Once our service was personalized, she did the editting and confirmed everything with us before hand. We were very surprised at the dedication she showed. There were other clients, I'm sure, but we felt that we were the ONLY couple she was working with. She wanted to know us personally. She rehearsed our ceremony with colleagues to ensure perfection. During the service her cadence and volume were flawless, even when the bullfrog in the background overcame all of the vocals! We had a few moments of stress because of travel time and she was reassuring and comforting. Every instant that we worked with Kimberly there were smiles, confidence and clarity...exactly what a bride and groom need when getting started! Thank you!

Her vibrant personality and attention to detail was exactly what we needed. She is very professional, articulate, and always responsive to emails and phone calls. Most importantly, she helped us plan a beautiful ceremony. You would think that planning your ceremony would be difficult, however we can honestly say that planning our ceremony was one of the most enjoyable parts of the planning process because of Kimberly. We were able to create the perfect ceremony based on what was important to us and Kimberly's delivery of our vows during the ceremony couldn't have been more perfect. From start to finish, working with Kimberly was a pleasure and we feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with her. Thank you Kimberly!!!!

Kimberly is an absolute pleasure to work with. I live in NYC and planned a destination wedding for 110 people entirely over the phone. Solage had recommended Kimberly to me and I’m so happy they did. From the time of our first conversation, I could tell Kimberly was a true professional. She helped me not only with my ceremony but pointed me in the right direction when choosing a photographer, wedding planner, florist, etc…. She has many years of experience with Napa Valley weddings (she knows most vendors too!) and can work with you to customize a ceremony that fits your needs. Kimberly is extremely organized, energetic, really listens to what you want and is always there for you. She picks up her messages and responds to emails at the speed of lightening and practically runs a 24hour/7 day-a-week business. Often she’d call me in NYC at 9am EST (6am in California)! Many of my guests came up to me during the reception to compliment the ceremony and told me it was the best they’d ever heard. Kimberly was warm, articulate and spoke with incredibly eloquence and poise. Feel free to call me if you have any questions (212)605-9283. I truly believe you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you were to choose another wedding officiant – Kimberly is the “best of the best” in wine country.

Kimberly did SUCH an amazing job with our wedding ceremony on April 24, 2010. She was so organized and really helped us construct a very personal and lighthearted yet meaningful ceremony. It was perfect and exactly what I had envisioned for our wedding. The ceremony really does set the tone for the rest of the wedding evening and immediately people were at ease and laughing even! Kimberly is a great speaker and was very helpful at every step of the process. She even met up with us twice in LA to discuss our ceremony and logistics and was at the courthouse with us in Napa when we got our marriage license. Great service and the process was fun!

Over half of my pictures are OUT OF FOCUS, and the florist not only didnt want me picking the flowers for my bouquet, but I specifically told her to give my fiance a white boutonniere, and she gave him HOT PINK!!

Kimberly was the celebrant for our Napa Valley wedding in April 2010.

We were so impressed with all aspects of Kimberly’s services. She was remarkably responsive and always easy to communicate with, especially since one of us lives in Texas and the other lives in Australia! We had no problems staying in touch with phone calls, emails and internet conference calls.

It was obvious from our first meeting that Kimberly is exceptionally experienced in her field. She listened to our ideas and requests and offered both suggestions and solutions in order to compose a truly beautiful ceremony.

The advice she gave us was invaluable and our wedding service was exactly what we had hoped for.

Kimberly has a great passion for what she does, and with her enthusiasm and attention to detail she held us through every aspect of planning the ceremony as well as organising the official paperwork. Her portfolio has the most beautiful selection of ceremonies to choose from which include emotive powerful words. We found the perfect combination which we tailored for our special day.

We were very impressed by Kimberly’s professionalism and expertise and are happy to offer our highest recommendation for A Beautiful Ceremony Napa Valley. Kimberly is an essential part of any couples journey to the alter and beyond. We hope to stay friends for many years and hope that she will still be available again when we want to renew our vows!

There wasn't a single detail that slipped by Kimberly while planning our wedding ceremony. Merging two families with 5 kids ages 16-21 together, planning a destination wedding via email and phone conversations, at first caused concerned that it would feel impersonal. Our only face to face meeting with Kimberly was just 7 weeks before the wedding, but she set us at ease immediately. In fact, the process of creating a personalized ceremony was so easy because of her creative ideas, that we never felt a moment of stress or indecision. On the contrary! Guests commented on how the ceremony was both personal and professional at the same time. We incorporated readings by dear friends, used the beautiful surroundings as a backdrop and shared our story with our guests who bonded in the process. Kimberly brings a joy and excitement to her role that set the tone for a great party with our friends and family. We now include Kimberly in that group of people. Thank you Kimberly, and cheers to many memories of that picture perfect day.

Kimberly came highly recommended by the events planner at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn. After my first telephone call with her, I knew that she was the perfect person to make our marriage official. For those of you with writer's block, Kimberly provides numerous templates as a starting point for drafting the ceremony. Her editing skills will surely give you an end product that won't leave a dry eye in the crowd. My groom and I are extremely busy, and Kimberly's organizational skills, professionalism, and great sense of humor made planning our ceremony so much fun (and easy)! She is knowledgeable about the licensing process and even sent us all of the materials we needed to fill out to further minimize the work we had to do. Lastly, she has a great sense of humor and despite her very busy schedule, Kimberly manages to make you feel as if you are the only couple she is working with.

My husband and I could not have been happier after choosing Kimberly as our officiant! Kimberly exudes professionalism with a warm spirit; she is thoughtful, fun and always willing to help. Kimberly is always on top of the constantly changing marriage license laws (which are rather surprising) and helps guide her couples and their witnesses through the process.

We felt so comfortable and taken care of! Since working with Kimberly, we have also become good friends...something that is not uncommon with her clients. We really couldn't be more thankful for her services.

Most deffintley the best day for my husband and myself to have. Kimberly was so amazing and completly one of a kind.
We got re-married on Feb. 26th 2010, in Napa, Califorina. She was right there for us the whole time. She even came to our resort at Carneros Inn and married us right there in our private courtyard. Her dear friend and our wittness (and our photogapher) was priceless. Ending a perfect day with my special Bouque on our dinner table, with a special card too.
Thanks so much Kimberly

Kimberly was excellent to work with. Very professional, caring and thoughtful. She provided us with several versions of various ceremonies, spent time with us on the phone and was responsive via email.

We planned our ceremony from CT and were married in Napa, CA. Not having met her prior to the ceremony, Kimberly quickly established herself in a warm and friendly phone conversation.

We loved meeting her in person and felt that she personalized our ceremony for us. Kimberly stayed after the ceremony to spend time with our guests. Everyone thought she was lovely.

Kimberly is excellent. She helped make our wedding very special.

From the day that I first talked to Kimberly I knew that everything would be perfect for our big day! Anytime I had questions I would call or e-mail and usually within minutes I had a response! What a relief to have somebody's full attention especially with all the planning and stress that a wedding could have brought. Really impressed with the amount of thought and work she gave, until the day was complete. I would pay twice what I paid just for the comfort of having Kimberly a part of my wedding planning!!

From the moment we first spoke to Kimberly we knew we had found the perfect officiant for our ceremony. Planning a wedding is one of the most stressful periods of a couple's life. Having to deal with so many service providers with various levels of competency was a challenge. However, with Kimberly, we never doubted her professionalism or dedication.

As the groom-to-be, my primary responsibility was to work with Kimberly to develop the details of the ceremony. It was always a pleasure dealing with Kimberly because she is very thorough when it comes to explaining the necessary tasks required to be completed prior to the big day. Kimberly offered several great ideas when it came to developing the processional and recessional details which we greatly appreciated. While she was very flexible in terms of when she'd be available to talk or meet, she never let us forget when certain things were due. With everything going on, her ability to stay on top of us (all with a great sense of humor) was invaluable.

Perhaps what impressed me most about Kimberly was her genuine interest in us. I come from a South Asian family. My name is long and difficult to pronounce. Most people try to pronounce my name and invariably butcher it. Don't get me wrong, Kimberly butchered it too on her first try :) However, she was absolutely dogged about getting my name correct by the time of the ceremony. Her persistence led her to ask me to leave a message on her phone with me repeating my name. She would listen to this message over and over again to perfect the pronounciation. Who does this? Kimberly Thompson does this because she's a professional. I'm happy to say that on the day of our wedding, she prounced my name perfectly!

We think very highly of Kimberly for the reasons outlined above and for reasons mere words can't do justice. We highly recommend her as an officiant for your special day.

We were recently married in Sonoma and Kimberly Thompson made our wedding ceremony so incredibly personal, unique, and unforgettable. Many of our guests still remember what was said at the ceremony which is rare! The most important thing to us was to have a ceremony that was personal, touching and expressed the way we felt about each other and our relationship. From the moment we met Kimberly we knew she was exactly the person we had been looking for. She was of great guidance and was always there to answer any questions we had. The way she delivered the ceremony was amazing and so comforting. She really spent a lot of time getting to know us and understanding what it was that we wanted. Throughout the planning process she became a great friend and we couldn't have asked for a better person to marry us. She made our ceremony so special and I am so happy that she was there with us every step of the way. If I could do it all over again, I would have Kimberly marry us again! We really have loved working with Kimberly every step of the way and are so blessed and happy to have someone like her as our officiant and most importantly our friend.

I would recommend Kimberly to anyone that wants a ceremony that will be touching, unique, and unforgettable. She really is the best and we miss working with her!

Kimberly passion for what she does and enthusiasm is contagious - you just can't help but get excited about your ceremony when working with her. She responds right away to any emails or phone calls and is willing to spend a great deal of time providing inspiration or answering any wedding-planning questions! She makes her couples feel very confident about their wedding day, runs the rehearsal quickly and expertly, is always punctual and overall very reliable. She will meet with you twice prior to the ceremony to get to know you and help you, and she really takes her time and lets you get to know her too. She also guides her couples through the licensing process and files all necessary paperwork while you're off on your honeymoon.
Kimberly was one of the first vendors we booked and honestly we did not do a whole lot of research. However, she was among my top three favorite vendors and I wish there would be an occasion to work with her again. While she isn't the least expensive officiant, you really get so much value for your money and she is worth every penny. She also looks great in pictures! :)

She responds right away to any emails or phone calls and is willing to spend a great deal of time providing inspiration or answering any wedding-planning questions! She makes her couples feel very confident about their wedding day, runs the rehearsal quickly and expertly, is always punctual and overall very reliable. She will meet with you twice prior to the ceremony to get to know you and help you, and she really takes her time and lets you get to know her too. She also guides her couples through the licensing process and files all necessary paperwork while you're off on your honeymoon.
Kimberly was one of the first vendors we booked and honestly we did not do a whole lot of research. However, she was among my top three favorite vendors and I wish there would be an occasion to work with her again. While she isn't the least expensive officiant, you really get so much value for your money and she is worth every penny. She also looks great in pictures! :) Read less

A HUGE thank you to our officiant Kimberly Thompson for helping us create our personalized and very touching wedding ceremony. We received many compliments about our touching wedding ceremony and vows.

Kimberly’s professionalism and enthusiasm stood out when I first spoke with her on the phone and I knew she was the right person to marry us. She took the time to clearly explain the steps involved in getting married and essentially answered all of my questions without my having to ask them! During our initial in person meeting with Kimberly she won over my husband Jeff who couldn’t believe that I had decided on an officiant after a single phone call.

Kimberly has a comprehensive ceremony portfolio with a fantastic range of sample ceremonies and vows for every occasion. She helped guide us through the entire marriage process, helping us tailor our ceremony script and vows, advising us on obtaining a marriage license, and assisting in planning the ceremony logistics. Many couples would consider writing their vows to be a chore but with Kimberly’s guidance it was fun.

We found Kimberly to be professional, supportive, efficient, enthusiastic, and easy to work with. She calmly helped us through an unexpected stressful moment during the ceremony. I was struggling to get the ring on my husband’s finger when her humorous comment relaxed everybody.

We were extremely happy with Kimberly and would highly recommend her to future brides and grooms who are looking for a touching and personalized wedding ceremony.

Kimberly did such an amazing job as our officiant not only the day of the wedding, but throughout the planning process. She is very organized and a joy to work with. I knew that we would get along great from the second I first spoke with her and I have enjoyed every conversation we've had. Kimberly helped my husband and I plan the ceremony of our dreams and she did an excellent job making sure everyone in the wedding party knew their duties the day of. Since our wedding, I've watched the video of that day and am so impressed with Kimberly's professional demeanor. She is an excellent public speaker and able to deliver a ceremony that is emotional, thoughtful, and (perhaps most importantly) easy for everyone in the audience to hear and understand. Other than the extreme 100+ degree heat the day of our wedding and the slight change of plans to adapt to this, our wedding went off without any problems and this was in large part to Kimberly being in charge. She did a great job at handling the ceremony and making sure my husband and I were happy and worry free. I couldn't have dreamed of a better officiant and wedding ceremony if I had tried, it was perfect!

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with the services provided by Kimberly, particularly since we were planning our wedding from the other side of the country. She provided all the information we needed from possible vows to helping us navigate the legal end of things with the wedding license. She even met us at the licensing office to ensure that everything ran smoothly! It was also extremely encouraging to know that she had worked extensively with our other vendors and even helped us select a phenomenal wedding planner! She truly made planning an out of town wedding a seemless and painless experience! We were thrilled with everything!!!

We cannot imagine our wedding ceremony without the talent, spark, and warmth of Kimberly Thompson. With the added stress of planning an out of town wedding (we live in LA and had our wedding in Rutherford), Kimberly's professionalism, knowledge, and dedication were exactly what we needed. She was there for us every step of the way and made planning the ceremony not only easy but enjoyable as well! We took on the struggle of writing our own vows and Kimberly, like a brilliant editor, helped us shape what we had written into a ceremony that was imaginative, moving, fun, and uniquely us. Kimberly's passion for what she does is an inspiration and we feel incredibly lucky to have had her as a part of our celebration!

If there were more people like Kimberly in the world, it would be a kinder, more patient and extremely well-run place! Kimberly not only worked with us to plan our ceremony, she also answered all of our questions regarding legal paperwork and the logistics involved in the weekend. Our rehearsal was the most efficient, well-coordinated rehearsal any of our friends and family members had ever seen/attended, and the ceremony could not have gone more smoothly.
Kimberly truly cares about her couples. My husband and I were married three years ago and still keep in touch with her.
Anyone working with Kimberly is in good hands.

To this day, we are thankful to remain in contact with Kimberly - her friendship and lasting memories of our wedding day is priceless.

There are a few coments that I would like to make about the service that Kimberly Thompson provided for my husband and I with our wedding ceremony.

When I called to book Kimberly she had asked if she could meet us and tell her some important details about our relationship, so that she could get a better understanding of why my husband and I were getting married. She came to our home and spent a few hours asking us questions about ourselves and what we meant to each other. I was not expecting that at all. I thought when you booked an officiant that they just did the ceremony, gave you a few options of what you would like to be said and that was it. With Kimberly it was much more.

Not long before our wedding my husbands father passed away. We were all devistated. My husband I and wanted to make a dedication to him in our ceremony. We let Kimberly know how we felt and our thoughts of including his father in the ceremony as well. Kimberly went above and beyond and customized our ceremony to reflect our love for his father and made our ceremony truly special to us. Not only that, with no extra charge at all. We are truely greatful.

Last but not least, Kimberly also preformed our ceremony when she was taking care of a husband who was battleing cancer. We told Kimberly to have a collegue please do the ceremony. But, with the support of her husband she preformed our ceremony and we were blown away. Our family was so thankful that many went up to thank her after the ceremony had ended.
With all of that said, I have to say, that I would hire her again and again. I would recommend her to anyone. My husband and I have been married seven years now and Kimberly is still to this day a true freind that we value very much.

We worked with Kimberly for our Sonoma Wedding, and I could not imagine that working with anyone else would have been so easy, and rewarding. Since this was a destination wedding, it was very rewarding finding someone who knew the ins and outs of the Marriage License, and laws of California.

As a matter of fact, upon arriving 2 hours late at the Marriage License office, the clerk, promptly said "Oh, we are so glad you made it. We were worried your flight was delayed, and you would not make it in time" - My wife and I looked at each other, feeling like Rock Stars that two normal Atlantans would be so "expected" at a Napa Government facility.

Kimberly worked with us on our Vows, and made the whole experience very pleasurable. Kimberly also assisted us in finding a great location for our elopement. She also introduced us to an excellent, and very professional photographer.

But all of that aside, the day of the wedding could not have been more magical, or more pleasurable then it was. Kimberly and our photographer (being 50% of the attending people) made the whole day perfect. My wife and I still reflect on the day, and how well it went, and how so many opportunities there were for things to go wrong; everything turned out perfectly.

Overall, working with Kimberly was, to say the least; flawless.

Ms. Kimberly Thompson from A Beautiful Ceremony Napa Valley was wonderful as our officiant. She was always very punctual, very responsive by phone and email in the planning of our ceremony. She provided us helpful information in the planning of our ceremony such as sample ceremonies and she reviewed our draft of ceremony words very thoroughly. She made sure that all the paperwork and logistic details were handled well and on time. She has performed countless weddings as an officiant at numerous locations including countries outside of the States. We consulted her on a difficult and rare case - we wanted to do the wedding again in Europe after our Napa wedding. She gave me very clear answer and gave great instructions of what to do in this case. My husband and I fully recommend having her as as your officiant.

Planning a destination wedding from the opposite coast can be a bit difficult. From the moment I spoke with Kimberly, I knew I would have nothing to worry about. She covers every detail and is impeccably organized.

We got a bit confused finding the courthouse when we got to Napa and a lady walked up to us on the street and said, "Looking for Kimberly? 2 doors down on your right.". So cute and unexpected but she was there waiting for us with everything ready to go.

Our small wedding went off without a hitch and I know Kimberly played a large role in that. You cannot go wrong with letting her handle all the details. She will respond in a timely fashion to every single question every.single.time. And she will always be happy to do so.

And by happy I mean, energetic, enthusiastic, and excited. She loves her job and it shows.

And by happy I mean, energetic, enthusiastic, and excited. She loves her job and it shows. Read less

Kimberly is amazing, and we hired her after seeing her perform the marriage ceremony of a friend. From the minute we hired her, she helped us with every detail of creating a beautiful and touching ceremony that reflected who we are as a couple. Kimberly truly wants each bride and groom to enjoy every minute of their wedding day, and she will do anything in her power to guarantee that, including helping me to hire a day of wedding coordinator. We had a wonderful ceremony, and our family and friends commented how moving the passages and vows were. We cannot thank her enough for all her help in creating a ceremony so uniquely us. We truly feel as if we made a friend, we are so sad it is all over!

Kimberly was exceptional, she went above and beyond for us. We had a destination wedding and we weren't able to meet with her until the week of the wedding. However, I felt like I knew her so well due to our e-mails and phone conversations. She made it so easy for us, she is warm and very professional. Another plus was that she did all the filing of the paperwork for us, so when we returned home from the honeymoon our marriage certificate was in our mailbox!!

We had an amazing experience with Kimberly - she was so personable and professional. Very organized and made the marriage license process a piece of cake. My husband and I loved working with her to create our perfect ceremony...we couldn't have asked for anything better.

Kimberly can really help make the day special if given a chance. She is totally professional and has plenty of ideas on how to make the day the best. I would recommend her to anybody.

Kimberly was fantastic. My wife and I were looking for a mostly secular ceremony, with a few religious touches mixed in that would acknowledge but not offend either side of our Christian/Jewish intersection. Kimberly was a perfect fit. She was organized, responsive, friendly, knowledgeable, and did a great job delivering the ceremony. We were complimented by all our family about the ceremony. And did I mention she was organized? I mean *super* organized. She guided us through each part of the process with a fine-tooth comb, including making the marriage license a no-stress affair. She had a strict timeline of "due dates" in place from the first conversation, which felt pretty intense compared to other vendors we worked with, but in the end meant we got things done on time and didn't have to deal with any last-minute decisions on the ceremony.

Kimberly has a set of ceremony templates to choose from, which range from totally secular to very religious (either Christian or Jewish). We weren't thrilled with any of the templates as is, so we were able to mix-and-match pieces from several different variants. This was pretty daunting - to pour over a couple dozen full ceremonies, weighing the pros and cons of each. But the final result was just what we wanted, and definitely easier than trying to come up with something from scratch.

A Beautiful Ceremony Napa Valley responded with the following comments:

This couple was so wonderful! And their ceremony/family/friends-a true delight. I felt the need to respond to this review due to the fact that I do not want it to be a detour-ant to couples with the two areas of that were less than favorable and I strive to make all my couples happy in every area of their ceremony. First off, I was booked for this wedding only 7 weeks before and and a custom ceremony was to be the end result. In order for all my couples to have the most amazing ceremonies, I have to create deadlines so to advise, articulate and involve them in the ceremony process and then yet study the presentations because they are custom so they sound wonderful. Organization is key when doing this and as you can see in the first part of the review this was captured. If I did not impose deadlines I would have couples handing me their ceremonies the day of. That is when mistakes are made. Keep in mind 80% of all my couples want to create something unique and different and take part. I am very flexible when couples can not meet their deadlines and often work very late/early in the morning via phone/email to keep couples feeling calm/stress free. All vendors and professionals work differently and should not be compared to other professionals. That's what makes our craft unique and special. As for the fees "value for the cost"I have been told for the last 3 years the my fees are low for all the time/hours that spend with my couples, by email, phone, Skype and in person. I hope that this brings clarity to those that feel the need to read this review and you may always call me for additional information. It has been my pleasure serving all couples for 18 years.
