Celebrating Life’s Events



Your Wedding Ceremony – is the first step in the journey of a lifetime!

A declaration given to, a new beginning, a new focus, a new life!

The wedding ceremony is a very sacred, meaningful personal statement and commitment.It should be heartfelt, meaningful and imaginative.

When you choose a celebrant you are entrusting that person with the miracle of your love story.

I bring to my celebrant practice a deep respect and love for the importance of ritual and ceremony to the human spirit. Every love story is sacred. This is why officiating at a wedding is an honor, and a responsibility that I welcome.

Working in partnership with you to create a ceremony I listen; ask questions; incorporating your ideas and beliefs whether they are ceremonial rites of a religious, spiritual or secular in either a formal or simple ceremony.

Finally; weaving your story; and vision into a ceremony unique to you as a couple. Creating an everlasting memory; of your commitment to each other.

I would consider it a privilege to create a wedding for you that celebrates your love, embraces your family and friends, and truly begins the rest of your life.

Other Services I Offer

I enjoy helping others highlight the milestones in their lives and would like to help create new ceremonies that are particularly relevant to our lives today.

I specialize in weddings, and also offer commitment ceremonies, vow renewals as well as house blessings, baby christenings and honoring a person’s life with a Memorial Service.

A Little More About Me

I am a non-denominational Minister and Life Celebrant; working in the Tampa Bay area.

My work life is dedicated full-time to creating personalized, heart-centered and memorable ceremonies.

My philosophy is spiritual in nature with love and kindness at its center.

On a personal note, I'm out-going, extremely passionate about this work that I do and love having fun!

Call me, or better still, let’s meet and talk about your love story and the vision you have for your ceremony. Thank you for finding your way here. Read less

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Christian (no denomination), Hindu, Jewish, Shinto
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Being an ordained non-denominational minister, I am able to preform any type of ceremoniy and anywhere the couple chooses. I've had the honor to present the ceremony in chapels. beaches, museums, hotels, resorts, in the lobby and on a balcony, parks private homes, on a boat.
 I am open to any location!
What is your attire for the ceremony?
dressing appropriate for a minister. Usually a black dress or pantsuit so as not to interfere with wedding decor. 
 Can wear robe if requested .
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
My ceremonies are written to reflect the couples' lifestyle, beliefs, events in their lives, not what I think it should be. I encourage them to be as actively involved as they want. As I prepare the ceremony, we are constantly in touch thru e-mail as I write. We will send drafts back and forth making changes, adding, and twiking the wording .
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Definitely!! I give my couples a definition of what vows are and what they should mean and samples to look at. . They pick and choose, and define what each one is promising to the other and their life together as husband and wife.
 It's also nice to include a couple of fun ones into the service.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I never tell my couple they must. I have a vast collection of readings, poems, scripture that they can choose from. Based on our conversations and what I have learned of the relationship, I make suggestions, but everything is their choice. I welcome anything that they want to include in the readings.
How long are your ceremonies?
Depending on the location - inside or out. It is usually 15-20 minutes.
 Depending on the content and rituals the couple wants included in the ceremony.
 As I write, I time the ceremony and keep them informed of the lenght of the service.
 I write it and present it . It is the couple's choice.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I do not. I am available if it is requested.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Unless decided at the time of contract, my fee always includes the rehearsal.
 I allow 1 hour. the day and time to be approved by me to avoid scheduling conflicts.
 The rehearsal is not to go thru the ceremony word for word, but to familiarize everyone with the ceremony area, the order of the service and how it will flow. It gives everone a chance to destress over what will be happening during the ceremony.
Do you supply a sound system?
At this time, I do not. 
 I recomment a professional sound system for all ceremonies. The family and guests want to hear the service and the bride and grooms' words of love to each other. Include this in the talks to the DJ or music provider for the wedding.
 They are professionals and will ensure the sound is perfect for the location.

Rev Katherine DeMarco was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her for any wedding event. She has such a great, calm, positive, pleasant aura. She is gently spoken, yet powerful. She is funny, but appropriate. She is so thoughtful and truly puts time and energy into the verbiage presented at your wedding. I received many drafts from her as she too, wanted it to be perfect for my husband to be, and myself. I was VERY impressed by that. It really reflects she doesn't have a canned, one-size-fits-all, generic approach. She is also creative and had ideas to interject that reflected our personalities. She was ideal for a wedding that was not too vested in ritual, but equally about love, commitment and a lifetime of devotion. Nothing phases her- even some slightly odd requests/particularities my husband and I had! She was the perfect person for a perfect day! I HIGHLY recommend her.

It's easy to recommend Katherine. I felt immediately drawn to her when I browsed her website. Working with her was so easy. She was professional and almost seemed to instinctually know what we were 'looking for'. Katherine works hard to tailor the service to what each bride and groom desire. Her knowledge is vast and she has a lot of great ideas on how to tweak the ceremony to make it really meaningful and special. I'm so glad we found her and I'd recommend her to anyone.

Choosing Katherine to officiate our wedding was a very easy decision upon meeting here. Katherine really works to customize your wedding based on YOU and what YOU want. She is very knowledgeable and has a lot of options to choose from when designing your ceremony. I got a lot of compliments from friends saying that it was the most "fun" ceremony they have ever been to, all thanks to Katherine. I also went through a really tough period of my life while planning my wedding and Katherine was extremely supportive. Thanks to Katherine for making my ceremony just perfect for us!

Katherine DeMarco was Amazing!!! My husband :-) and I are a little old fashioned and wanted a male officiant, but time got away from us and our venue recommended Katherine. 5 minutes into our first phone call I knew she was the one for us. She is so sweet and understanding, we literally booked her 2 Weeks before the wedding. She took the time to really listen to what we wanted and then gave us more then we ever hoped for. There really isn't enough stars on this review for her, everyone was blown away by our ceremony.

Rev. DeMarco was absolutely amazing. My now-husband and I aren't terribly religious, but we have close family members who would have been offended by a completely secular ceremony, so we were very anxious about combining the two in a way that was still very personal and very "us". Rev. DeMarco was wonderful, guiding us every step of the way and giving wonderful suggestions to make the vow-writing process painless. Her humor and warmness helped ease nerves both at the rehearsal and during the ceremony, and so many of our guests commented on how great she was. We really found a gem with her.

Having Katherine as our officiant was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Our ceremony was so incredibly heartfelt, and 100% unique to us. We aren't particularly religious, but she was still able to convey the sanctity and sacredness of the ceremony/union. Katherine took the time to really get to know our backstory, which she intermixed into the ceremony, and was a hit with the guests. She encouraged us to write our own vows, which we are so thankful for as they were captured on video that we will be able to watch for years to come. Our wedding was 2 and a half weeks ago, and we are still getting compliments on how beautiful and "different" the ceremony was, that guests who never cry at weddings were in tears! A HUGE thank you to Katherine, our wedding just would not have been the same without her!!

Katherine was a joy to work with, such a sweet women. She listened to Adam and I request for our ceremony, and gave us so many options to choose from for the rest. She had a lot of suggestions, to help us put together a beautiful ceremony. People are still commenting about how unique and personal our ceremony was. She also included a beautiful booklet of our ceremony, and since she heard I wanted to take pictures with our marriage certificate, she made us a "prettier" one, since the states isn't that fancy. I would recommend Katherine to anyone who is having a hard time wording their ceremony, and needs some extra guidance.
