Imagine comfort and ease on the day of your wedding as you share your vows with all your family and friends.

Your wedding ceremony sets the tone for your whole wedding day and of course your life in marriage.

Imagine a wedding ceremony that speaks directly from your hearts.

Whether you wish to co-create your wedding ceremony or would prefer a simple pre-written wedding ceremony, Reverend Kathy will help you create a blessed wedding day filled with warmth, happiness, ease and an abundance of love.

Choosing a wedding minister is important, especially a wedding minister that listens to your unique ideas and helps you create a meaningful and heartfelt wedding ceremony. Kathy has a gift for listening and for helping couples find the words that speak directly from their heart. As an ordained interfaith minister, Kathy specializes in supporting couples with diverse spiritual backgrounds.

You may choose to have a large or small wedding celebration, a casual or formal wedding ceremony, a traditional religious or contemporary spiritual wedding ceremony, or a civil secular wedding ceremony.

You may choose an interfaith wedding ceremony that blends traditions from many faiths or a multi-cultural / inter-denominational wedding ceremony blending diverse wedding customs. You may include wedding traditions such as a unity candle, the rose ceremony, handfasting, blessing of the hands, sand ceremony, water-pouring ceremony, parents' blessings, children's blessings, special readings, glass breaking, wine ceremony, handfasting, ring blessings and more. The list goes on and on -- limited only by your imagination.

Since YOU will be creating your wedding ceremony, YOU will always know what Kathy will be saying at your wedding -- no surprises! Your wedding day is YOUR wedding day and your wedding ceremony is YOUR ceremony!

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, Baha'i Faith, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Jewish, Muslim, Taoist
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
YES, My blog has many photos of wonderful sites...and I am happy to suggest.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I usually suggest my black dress or pant suit, depending on weather, and I also have a blue dress.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
I want the couples to choose the words that make meaning to them. I have lots of choices of vows, ring exchange, and I welcome couples writing their own vows also.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
YES! And I am here to help assist in the process of writing one's vows if needed.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
again, I have lots of choices for the couples to choose from and they are encouraged to find other resources. Each ceremony is unique. For example, a bride asked her siblings to read from Dr Seuss: Oh the Places you will go!
 Another example is a father shared his own poetry, a gift to the couple.
How long are your ceremonies?
depends if the guests are sitting or standing...I do not like a ceremony shorter than 15 mins...I invite other voices then my own, readers, musicians, the couple speaking if they wish...usually the ceremony is no longer than 30mins.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I do not require. Though, I will say, couples who have taken the time and investment, have enjoyed the counseling and have written within their reviews how it enhanced their marriage.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes, I will travel to rehearsals if needed by the couple. I do also ask if possible, for the couple to meet with me at my home office in Asheville, to read through the ceremony together, standing. I always remind the couple that the wedding ceremony is not a performance. Your guests are not your audience, meaning the ceremony you have created is being witnessed, blessed and celebrated by your guests...with heart.
Do you supply a sound system?
no I do not have a sound system. I leave that up to the musicians or DJ or venue. Under 60 guests, I like to not use a microphone for myself, though I may wish a microphone for the couple or the readers if needed...again each ceremony is unique and a microphone is something we will discuss.

I wish there were more stars to express how wonderful it was working with Rev. Kathy. We were planning our wedding from out of town, which isn't always easy but she made it easy and exciting. We were able to easily stay in touch and she really helped form our ceremony to fit us perfectly! We were even able to run through some details before the big day which helped both her and us! We can't thank her enough and would recommend her to anyone!

Rev. Kathy was the perfect addition to our intimate ceremony. She was incredibly helpful in the planning process leading up to the ceremony (which was very important to me since I was planning our wedding from out of town), took the time to meet us while we were in town for one weekend, walked us through everything so we knew exactly what to expect the day of, and provided a seamless ceremony on our wedding day. Everything was perfect and it was great working with her!

Kathy performed our elopement ceremony on 9/26/14 and we couldn't have made a better decision than going with her as our Officiant. We live in Texas and had our event in North Carolina, so everything was done over email and phone which was a breeze with Kathy. She was a joy to talk to leading up to our ceremony and really guided us in the process of planning the ceremony and our vows. Kathy was very flexible from start to finish. I would definitely recommend her for your big day.

Thank you so much Kathy!

I was planning a wedding in the smoky mountains at a venue I had never been to. I was also unable to meet with Kathy in person before the ceremony. She did a superb job communicating with me that by the time of the ceremony I felt like I had known her for years. She was so organized and personable. We would not have had it any other way. She made our ceremony everything we ever wanted and SO much more!!

Kathy was wonderful throughout the entire process of constructing and performing our ceremony. From the very beginning, she was extremely warm and eager to help us perfect our ceremony. When we started the process, we had no idea what it was that we wanted for our ceremony. Kathy provided so many examples and options that we were able to construct a ceremony that was meaningful to us. She also really worked with us to figure out how to incorporate aspects that were important to us, namely the inclusion of our two children throughout the ceremony. We truly appreciate her!

thank you Ashlee! I especially enjoyed how you included the children during the ring exchange, by gifting them with a piece of jewelry.
And even the family dog was present at the ceremony! Look forward to sharing some photos on my blog :)

Kathy was great to work with. We chose her because of her flexibility and willingness to blend traditional and non-traditional elements. She helped us plan a ceremony that allowed our personalities to shine through, while still providing guidance about structure, timing, and rhythm. She met with us multiple times before the big day to go over what we wanted as well as practice the ceremony. She offered template ceremonies to help get us started crafting a custom ceremony that included traditional Irish handfasting and personal vows. We can't recommend her enough.

We cannot say enough about Reverend Kathy! We do not live in the Asheville area so we found Reverend Kathy online and selected her based on all of her positive reviews - and we are SO glad we did. She is extremely responsive and professional; and she provided a TON of ceremony examples, suggestions, tips, etc. which really helped us construct our personalized ceremony. At the same time, Reverend Kathy is also very laid back and emanates this incredibly warm and positive vibe -- ideal for our small elopement ceremony in the mountains. We would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone!

Kathy was amazing to work with to plan a wedding. We were no easy feat with my being in Boston, MA and James being in Rockingham, NC to be married in Asheville, NC. She easily facilitated our creating a ceremony that was authentic. She was open and flexible to using Google Hangout to discuss the ceremony from a distance and to include new ideas about how we wanted to incorporate our kids. When we were at a loss, she came to the rescue with lots of wonderful ideas about how to pull our ideas together. If we were to get married again tomorrow, I would definitely choose to work with Kathy all over again!

I cannot say enough good things about Kathy. My husband and I had a very small wedding with immediate family only. Kathy was very attentive to my husband and my requests and had excellent suggestions on how to make our ceremony unique and special for us. Some people just have a way with words and she is one of those people. The first time we met her, we drove home knowing we selected the right officiant for our wedding. She has a dynamic personality and just oozes warmth and happiness.

Reverend Kathy helped make our wedding special by being flexible (we asked her to hike a half mile to Triple Falls) and responsive to our wishes. She guided us and provided us examples of a ceremony which we then modeled with readings and our own vows. She recommended a photographer (Meghan Rolfe) and also had her husband be a witness to the ceremony. Even with the threat of rain, all were willing to still make the journey. It turned out to be a beautiful day and weekend. Doing the ceremony down by the falls made it a special event.

It turned out to be a beautiful day and weekend. Doing the ceremony down by the falls made it a special event. Read less

Rev. Kathy Jennings, Asheville Wedding Minister responded with the following comments:

Your ceremony inspired me to create an Elopement page on my website!
More and more couples are requesting ceremonies like yours. I just love the uniqueness of each ceremony, each couple, and each setting.
And Meghan is a great photographer. You can see the photos of this wedding and more on my blog.

I couldn't be more grateful for Reverend Kathy Jennings. My fiancé and I eloped and were only able to communicate over email and phone due to busy work schedules and planning a wedding within a very short period of time. She was not only responsive, but incredibly caring and helpful in making our ceremony exactly what we wanted it to be. She is absolutely the best and although I wish we would have been able to spend more time with her, I am lucky to know her and thankful that she was the one who officiated our marriage.

Our wedding had to be planned in 3 weeks due of unforeseen schedule changes. I found Kathy on Wedding Wire - she had such high reviews so I was sure that she would not be available. I was wrong - Kathy contacted me almost immediately and began helping me brainstorm different ideas. After my first conversation with her, I felt at ease. She was more than just our officiant - she recommended various venues, a wonderful photographer, and helped us to figure out all of the details of the ceremony. She was professional, made us feel comfortable, and provided high quality service. Kathy offered suggestions but inspired us to find the right words for us personally, and made our ceremony unique and intimate. I recommend her highly!!!!

Kathy was an absolute blessing. She was so helpful with ideas for wording for the ceremony and allowed us to meet with her at her house the day before the wedding to finalize things. She has tremendous energy and her spirit really added to our special day. We felt a nice connection with Kathy as soon as we started working with her and it came through during the ceremony. We could not have been happier.

Kathy was a huge blessing! We were planning a small destination wedding in Maggie Valley with plans to have a family friend officiate the ceremony, two weeks before our date we learned our friend was unable to do so. Needless to say with the late date and the fact that we were 8 hours away from our destination - we panicked. My husband immediately searched and found Kathy online then sent a plea for help - she responded quickly and set up a time for us to chat by phone the same day. That conversation immediately put us both at ease and we knew she'd be a perfect fit for the type of ceremony we wanted. She helped us cultivate the perfect ceremony - taking the ideas we had then adding her own expertise. It turned out to be even more beautiful than we could have imagined. We were able to meet her in her home office before our big day to do a read through and get comfortable. She was fabulous on our wedding day - arriving early and excited to be a part of our special moment. Our family and friends raved about the ceremony, so many people have said it was the most beautiful and special wedding they had ever been to. I may be biased, but I agree. Kathy really set the tone for our entire day, I am so glad that fate stepped in and allowed us to meet! We are forever thankful!

Reverend Kathy is amazing! My husband and I used her as our wedding officiant and also attended marriage counseling with her prior to the ceremony.

She is flexible, prompt, and very professional. We came to her knowing that we wanted to create a ceremony that would be a little bit different than your average wedding ceremony. She provided us samples and plenty of advice on how to piece together a ceremony that would capture our love, personality, and needs.

The marriage counseling we attended with Kathy was extremely helpful and really allowed my husband and I to get to know each other on an even more intimate level. We had been together for 5 years before we married and during the sessions with Kathy, we learned something new about each other.

Thank you Reverend Kathy for officiating a beautiful ceremony and providing us the tools that we need to make our marriage strong.

I couldn't have been happier with Rev. Kathy! She was extremely helpful from the first phone call through the day-of.

We met face-to-face two days before the wedding when she invited the two of us to her home to rehearse. Our ceremony had many complicated parts, with props for tree unity ceremony and wishing rocks, but Kathy knew just what to do and helped to make it a smooth process. She was easy-going, but extremely professional and took care of so many things that it made the wedding day relaxing and fun for us.

And I want to add, Jane had every detail thought out. Being a destination wedding with everyone flying out the next day, Jane asked if I would come back the next morning and take the flowers to a local nursing home in Asheville, to be enjoyed by the residents there. What a wonderful idea!

Rev. Kathy was the perfect choice for our wedding. We planned a destination wedding from three states away. Rev. Kathy made time to interview with us via Skype, and her open-heartedness and organization appealed to us instantly. After making the easy choice to request her services, Rev. Kathy offered a myriad of selections to create a service unique to us and the marriage that would blend our two families. Rev. Kathy made time to meet with us the day before the wedding to walk through ceremony details. We were so relaxed when working with her. Rev. Kathy literally climbed a mountain for us to be at our wedding. There were a few bumps in the road on the wedding day, and Rev. Kathy went with the flow. When I walked "down the aisle" toward my husband-to-be, with Rev. Kathy at his side, I felt that I was among friends. We would highly recommend Rev. Kathy to every engaged couple looking for an intimate and personal wedding. We wish her the best in all of her endeavours.

She had great ideas for customizing our ceremony to fit us as a couple, we included some really beautiful and unique elements like the 'Hand Ceremony', everyone loved our ceremony! A few hours before the ceremony, we had to change sites due to rain and we couldn't decide where to have it- Kathy stepped up and took charge and helped us choose the best location and it ended up being even better than the original site. Overall, she is a wonderful minister who gave us a beautiful and memorable ceremony, extremely professional and down to earth, a wealth of knowledge, and the perfect person to have around when things are not going as planned. I'm so glad we found her and we will definitely recommend her to everyone!

Kathy Jennings is a wonderful, and great hearted person. She was very helpful and attentive to make our wedding the most special day of our life. She is very creative and open minded, my husband and i had a very quaint and simple ceremony that we planned in about a week. Our ceremony was a country themed wedding, and i rode up on horse back and had my father help me off the horse to give me away. We had everyone facing the mountain range which was one of the most beautiful places that anyone could have their special day. We have a son and we wanted to do something to involve him to but we weren't exactly sure what,then Kathy suggested that we have a sand ceremony, which was absolutely perfect. We couldn't have done it so perfectly with out Kathy's experience and her very wise mind. I was absolutely satisfied with all of her help and service. I would recommend her for any type of wedding or ceremony! 5 stars! Thank you so much Kathy!

Derek and I cannot say enough wonderful words about Rev. Kathy Jennings. She helped to make our ceremony more beautiful and special than we could have hoped. Most of our guests have told us it was the most beautiful ceremony they have ever seen, and of course, we couldn’t agree more. From the moment we made contact, she was sincere, professional, and supportive. Writing our own service was a daunting task, but Rev. Kathy listened to our needs and guided us throughout the process with fantastic results. Our ceremony was unique while maintaining the traditions we value, and perfectly reflected our love for one another. When it came time to perform the ceremony, Rev. Kathy was a calming, positive presence on such a momentous day.

Additionally, we were so happy we took her up on the offer of a pre-marital counseling session. It was a wonderful opportunity for my fiancé and I to reflect on our relationship during the whirlwind of wedding planning. We learned things about ourselves and each other that will help us grow together and strengthen our bond throughout our life together.

Derek and I are so grateful to Rev. Kathy for making our special day even more extraordinary and would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone!

Most couples don't have the opportunity to work with Kathy twice in 6 months! Chad and I couldn't wait for our October 2011 wedding in the mountains and save the dates had been sent out. Unfortunately, we then had an illness in the family and decided to move the ceremony up several months. We were so fortunate to find Kathy, who helped us with every step to create an intimate ceremony that really reflected the two of us. Despite having to plan everything so quickly, Kathy really made the effort to get to know us ahead of time. She was so friendly, an incredible speaker, extremely professional and made us feel at ease. Our wedding couldn't have been more perfect!

Our reception was still planned for October, but having kept our ceremony private, we decided to repeat the ceremony for family, friends and attendants. We were disappointed initially to discover that Kathy was already booked that date/time. She was so wonderful the first go-around, that we ended up changing the time of our wedding so that she could officiate! She helped us tweak the ceremony, offered helpful advice and even made several 'dry runs' to find the quickest route from the first ceremony to ours. Guests offered so many compliments regarding both the ceremony and Kathy- she is truly wonderful!! We would highly recommend Kathy for your special day! Susan and Chad

Kathy was the first step in our elopement process. Prior to chatting with her on the phone both my husband and I were feeling very targetted by wedding vendors and up to that point frustrated since we just wanted a simple and no fuss ceremony. Kathy brought us to a great place of calm and after confirming her as our officiant everything fell into place. Kathys focus is not just on the ceremony but also on what is much more important- the marrige itself. Her "writing your marriage vision" exercise was very helpful in guiding us in writing our vows. She was also very respectful of my husband and I's differing spiritual/ religious beliefs. I have already recommended her to a couple looking to elope in Asheville- Rev. Kathy is a great find!

She proved to be very caring, professional, and well organized which helped set our minds at ease and create a very personal ceremony. Her experience proved valuable in suggesting details to help make our garden ceremony run smoothly and make it uniquely ours. We received many compliments from our family and friends about our ceremony and attribute this to Kathy. We would highly recommend her to other couples.

Kathy provided us with excellent service as our wedding officiant! We wanted someone who would preform a non-religious ceremony and who offered pre-marital counseling services. We went through the Prepare/Enrich program with Kathy and felt that it gave us a good connection to her, so it didn't feel that a stranger was performing our ceremony. She gave us many examples of others' wedding ceremonies and from that we pieced together a beautiful and meaningful ceremony that was perfect for us! Her kind and gentle demeanor was perfect and she set our minds at ease when we felt that we weren't rehearsed enough for the big day. Everything flowed beautifully under her direction. Even our guests raved about Kathy and wanted to know where we found her... I would definitely recommend her for your ceremony!

Rev. Kathy Jennings, Asheville Wedding Minister responded with the following comments:

Thank you Emily. Your ceremony was blessed by many musicians. Even the groom joined in during the prelude, setting such a beautiful tone for the ceremony. I was there an hour before the ceremony to meet with all the musicians and make sure we all understood the flow of the ceremony. And because of that, the ceremony had such a lovely flow and did not feel like a performance but a heartfelt and sacred exchanging of vows. I even said to you both after the second song, "how blessed you both are'.

We found Reverend Kathy looking for a non-denominational officiant for our wedding near Asheville, and were impressed with her professionalism and responsiveness - it was a great relief to be able to reach her, discuss our needs, and be done.

Because we were out of town, Reverend Kathy worked with us over Skype and email to arrange our ceremony, and sent us several examples to pull ideas and information from. The entire process was relatively stress free, and left us with a meaningful ceremony that tied together the wedding nicely. She was very respectful of what our desires for a ceremony were, and didn't impose her own views or beliefs on what it "should be", and we were able to discuss ahead of time exactly what she was going to say to make sure it reflected our vision.
