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.

Karen is amazing. If you are looking for a personalized wedding ceremony that will make your guests smile, laugh, and cry, Karen is the one for you. From the first time we met Karen, we just clicked with her. It is rare that you meet someone who so obviously loves their job, and Karen definitely does. She took the time to get to know us, and the questionnaire she gives you is fantastic and really lets her get a sense of who you are as a couple, and she uses that to build a ceremony that is as unique as your love. Karen is always available through email, and answers quickly. My family all loved Karen too, she is just so easy to talk with. I really cannot say enough nice things about her.

Karen helped us create a ceremony that was personal and crafted to suit us as a couple. As a couple, it was very important that our ceremony reflected our lives together and also involved our family and friends. Karen was very attentive to our wishes and used her previous experience to create a ceremony that was truly unique to us. We've received many compliments from our wedding guests saying how much they enjoyed our ceremony. We would definitely recommend Karen and are very thankful for her help!

We couldn’t have been more pleased with how wonderfully our ceremony turned out! At our reception we had so many people coming up to us and saying that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever heard, and seemed so personal! Karen was so easy to work with, enthusiastic, and quick to respond to emails and questions. She wrote the entire ceremony based on what we told her about ourselves and tailored it to us as a couple. She was open to any changes or tweaks that we wanted to the ceremony and really made it in to exactly what we wanted. Our ceremony wouldn’t have been the same without Karen and we can’t thank her enough for how much work she put in to making our ceremony special. I really recommend Karen if you want a ceremony customized based on you as a couple and what you want in your marriage. She does an amazing job and is wonderful to work with!!

Karen went out of her way to incorporate our wishes for the ceremony we desired. She was particulary sensitive to the nature of our family dynamics. Her ability to custom tailor our service was unforgettable. Probably the most memorable part of the ceremony was her inclusion of our son. Her laid-back nature was incredibly disarming, and put everyone at ease, from the outset, including the majority of our family members who had not met prior to the ceremony beginning. We were very glad to receive a copy of the beautiful ceremony that she had prepared for us. We didn't realize until after the ceremony was over that it was actually her birthday; her selflessness in this regard was very impressive.
