I wish there were some option to rate Karen higher than a 5 for Quality, Value, and most of all, Flexibility! We found Karen less than 2 weeks before our wedding date, she was quick to respond and put us completely at ease. After sending us a brief survey to get to know us, she was somehow divinely able to mold what we told her about ourselves into the most beautiful ceremony. Karen arrived well beforehand to go over details with us, and exuded such grace and flexibility when our 1pm ceremony start time hung in limbo as we waited for our photographer to arrive (who ended up being a no-show!!). She was so patient with us as we scrambled to put together a plan b, and her ease was much appreciated!

Karen made our ceremony fun and meaningful. We all laughed, and cried, and were touched very deeply. She put together a keepsake copy of the entire ceremony for us, which we have already re-read multiple times. What a neat memento to have forever!

I cannot thank her enough for helping to create such a special day for us. At some point after the ceremony, each of our family members came up to us individually and remarked on how perfect Karen had been for us.

We love you, Karen!...and would recommend you to any and everyone!

Karen provided us with a beautiful, personalized ceremony. She took time to know my husband and I and took our input on our relationship to make our ceremony special to us. Karen genuinely loves what she does and it was clear to everyone who met her! Our guests commented on how the ceremony was just so us and how they were impressed how sweet and sentimental the wedding was. Karen answered all of our questions pre, during, and post ceremony. We recommend Karen for any couple looking for a unique, intimate, and personal ceremony.

Karen made our day so special. Some of the things I valued most were the dedication to our mothers,as they are so important to us. Secondly she incorporated my religious belief but not as so much to make my spouse feel like it was a religious ceremony. Lastly she was funny and made our guests feel as if she had known us our whole lives.

Karen made our ceremony all the things we wanted. Fun, intimate, and personal. She did all these and made our guests feel like she had known us a lifetime. I loved that she did a special honor for our mothers as they are so important to us. One thing that was so important to us was to incorporate my religious beliefs without letting that be the main focus. Karen did a good job of that. Our guests laughed and cried and left feeling the love that my new wife have for one another.

Karen was extremely helpful and fun to work with leading up to our wedding and made our day a great one! She was willing to meet us in Roanoke initially, was quick responding to emails, and drove to our venue the day of our wedding. We couldn't have asked for a more exuberant officiant that was willing to shape a ceremony just for the two of us. Karen is wonderful and I would recommend her to any couple!

Karen did a great job with our ceremony. She took all of our input and tailored a very personal ceremony. We are a female same sex couple and were very very comfortable working with Karen. She truly believes in ceremonies for ALL and that was very important to us. Thanks Karen.

Karen was absolutely wonderful. Through our answers to an incredibly detailed survey she gave us, she crafted a ceremony just for us. It was thoughtful, personal, and beautiful. Karen is a great speaker, and many in our crowd gave us compliments on the ceremony. She answers promptly to emails, which is great for an out-of-town bride, and was flexible with meeting us in person. She was also very open to the few changes we had to the ceremony she crafted, and was very easy to work with. I couldn't recommend her highly enough.

For LGBT couples, Rev Osborne is THE officiant for you! She was keenly aware of the challenges in a same-sex ceremony and was very supportive.

My husband and I planned our wedding from afar as the events were held 4 hours away at our beloved Alma Mater, Virginia Tech. Recently married friends in our situation told us about their awful experiences interviewing countless officiants before settling on one. Determined to not waste a day interviewing, I did research (God bless Wedding Wire!) and was lucky enough to come across Karen’s website and glowing reviews.

We set up a meet and greet at Panera in Blacksburg and got great vibes. We felt we had a unique situation and Karen was kind and caring while hearing our story. We had been together almost 9 years prior to our big day when his Dad, whom we were very close with, suddenly passed away not even a year before our wedding. This was an extremely delicate situation to be in as emotions were raw and we wanted to honor his influence on our relationship while balancing our emotions and those of family and friends in attendance. Karen guided us through this process and created a custom service which fit us perfectly.

Although we only met once prior to the wedding, I was truly impressed how Karen captured the essence of our relationship. We received a planning questionnaire that she used to create our ceremony script, which we received a copy of and made edits to a few weeks prior to the wedding. Knowing everything that was going to be said helped ease my nerves and it was just as special hearing it on the big day. I know I am biased but the wedding was a blast. Karen captivated the audience (she didn’t even use a mic!) and had everyone laughing throughout. We received amazing feedback from friends and family who said it was the most beautiful ceremony they had been to. One of our attendees is even using Karen for her upcoming nuptials in September.

Can’t recommend enough, thanks for everything Karen!

Karen was just perfect! The ceremony was so much better than we ever could have imagined and she really made it feel like 'us.' There was smiling, laughing (lots of it!), and crying and was just so flawless. Would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who wants a ceremony that is personal and shows who you are as a couple. Thank you!

Working with Karen was one of the best parts of our wedding. We spent such a long time trying to decide who would marry us as we wanted an interfaith, but very personal, ceremony. As I scrolled through great reviews of Karen online, I decided to give her a call. From the moment we spoke, I knew she was it. She was so warm, open, and interested in not just getting to know Andrew and I, but sharing her own story as well in order to build a relationship. She asked so many questions that really made us stop and think, but it was these questions that allowed her to write the most beautiful and meaningful ceremony we could have ever imagined. When planning, she told us that the audience would think that she had known us for years, and boy was it true! Our guests were crying, and laughing, and cheering! It was the most memorable moment of our lives and it is even that much more special when we look back and know that it was Karen who married us.
