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), Christian - Anglican, Christian - Baptist, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Presbyterian
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Absolutely! I am delighted to perform your ceremony at the location of your choice!
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Usually a robe & stole (which can be coordinated with your wedding colours) or clergy attire, but I am happy to wear, if you prefer, smart business or casual attire, or even a costume for a theme wedding!
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes! It's your day, so you should speak the words that are meaningful to you. I have many types of vows to choose from, or I can custom write a ceremony just for you.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes! I even offer a vow-writing workshop for couples interested in doing this. If you would like to write something personal, but not necessarily write your own vows, these can be included as Expressions of Love in your ceremony.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
There is no "must" - I do have a range of readings available, from romantic prose or poems, to religious passages, and couples are free to choose any or none of these, or to read something of your own choosing.
How long are your ceremonies?
Depending on the type of ceremony you choose, and the inclusions (unity candle or sand ceremony for example), a ceremony can be as short as 10 minutes, or as long as up to an hour - it's your choice! The most popular length of a ceremony is 25-30 minutes, and we can pack a lot into that amount of time!
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
The State of Colorado does not require pre-marital counseling, and neither do I! If you would like to, or if you live in a state that does require pre-marital counseling, I have courses available.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes! A rehearsal prior to the ceremony can be a great help. Particularly for large wedding parties, or ceremonies with a lot of elements, a rehearsal lets everyone feel more comfortable with what happens and when, where to stand, and also gives those with speaking parts a chance to practice!
Do you supply a sound system?
I do have a smal PA speaker and microphone that is perfect for small gatherings.

My partner and I met Kim at a wedding showcase in Boulder over the summer. After just a quick chat, I knew that, no matter the cost, she HAD to be the officiant at our wedding. Kim created a ceremony for my wife and I that was uniquely special and personalized with a beautiful narrative of our "love story." She was incredibly thorough, professional, and responsive. She executed our ceremony with so much ease, grace, and sincerity. Most of the feedback we received from our guests was that our ceremony was the best they had ever seen.

Kim was simply amazing! While we weren't her first Renaissance themed wedding, we were her first at the Colorado Renaissance Festival. She had some great ideas for our ceremony when we weren't sure what to do, but allowed us to make our own suggestions and changes as needed. She loved our ideas and was very accommodating with some very last minute changes. She also made her own dress to be in period attire at our wedding. Not only did she look fantastic, she also looked very professional. The ceremony she wrote was very meaningful and made everyone feel welcomed. I would recommend her to anyone (themed wedding or not).

We had an amazing experience with Reverend Kim. She met with us twice before the ceremony to make sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. She was so professional and great to work with. We received so many compliments about the beautiful ceremony after the wedding. There wasn't a dry eye in the whole place. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of an officiant.

Rev. Kim is the BEST! We are so glad we chose her as our officiant. Kim wrote an amazing ceremony that represented my new husband and me perfectly. We wanted a hand-fasting that incorporated our spiritual beliefs without totally freaking out some of our guests, and she nailed it! The ceremony was so beautiful and Kim was so flexible about adding/taking out elements that we liked or didn't like. She really customized it to be exactly what we wanted. We had so many people tell us that it was the most beautiful ceremony they'd ever been to and that they just adored our officiant (as did we)!

I'd like to mention also that Kim went out of her way to find us 2 aspen seedlings when we were unable to find any for our "seedling ceremony." My husband and I were quite distressed and Kim came to the rescue. She found aspen seedlings, picked them up for us and brought them to the rehearsal. Without her, we wouldn't have been able to do this important part of the ceremony.

We really loved working with Kim and would recommend her to anyone looking for an awesome, kind, and reasonable officiant. She was wonderful!

Finding Kim was the best thing I did throughout my entire wedding planning! She was so kind and considerate right from the beginning; I was allowed to design my wedding just how I wanted it, she always made time for me when i needed to meet with her and always kept me de-stressed when she could sense that I was getting too over-whelmed. The vows that she created for my husband and I were the most beautiful vows that I have ever heard and I have heard those comments from just about every single person that was in attendance. The major thing that sticks out in my mind about Kim's loving and compassionate character is that 2 days prior to my wedding my husband grandfather passed away and I emailed her the night of and asked if she could say something extra special for him. Well she went above and beyond and mentions our beloved Gramps and did it in a way that showed people that with loss of loved ones blooms the love of others; so it payed/showed respect to our grandfather and did it in a way that did not make people cry or be sad, but showed them that with loss, there is also love. She created a whole new set of vows for us 2 days before the wedding and never complained or made me feel that I was an inconvinience. Kim is an amazing, sweet, loving, perfect person to have for your wedding officiant and she is definitely the best part of my wedding. She created an environment that was perfect, not too long, not too short and showed the love between my husband and I. If you would like I have video to prove how great this officiant is and why she is the person to choose for the happiest day of your life :)

We had the pleasure of working with Reverend Kim for our ceremony.

She met with us a couple of times in the weeks before the wedding to allow her to get to know us as a couple, from our own backgrounds to how we met, and our journey together. My husband and I each submitted funny stories about each other and special expressions we wanted to say to each other during the ceremony. Reverend Kim has done a wide variety of ceremonies of all denominations. She asked if we had our own ideas for what we wanted in our wedding and offered a rainbow of ideas to help decide.

Reverend Kim made our ceremony "ours". She even printed cards for us for our expressions so we didn't have to memorize anything (a huge relief for both of us!). The program was sweet, romantic, and was infused with the perfect amount of humor.

We could not be more pleased at how personal Kim made our ceremony. We've received a ton of compliments about how great it was...and most importantly, how special it was to US. She did a wonderful job.

Two weeks later and I still have people telling me how perfect our ceremony was!
Not too long or too short. Not too serious, and not too silly. She really listened to us and delivered every detail we asked for and then some. She was also VERY respectful of our beliefs and didnt try to pressure us to have anything we didnt feel comfortable with in our wedding.
She also went out of her way to make sure her attire didnt destract from my dress. None of the other officients we interviewed even considered that kind of detail.
Thank you Rev. Kim!

A very popular officiant and it's obvious why. Rev. Kim helped us to create a ceremony that 100% reflected our spirituality and who we are as a couple. I truly appreciate her genuine personality and passion for her profession.

Rev. Kim Tavendale - a very lovely kind lady, that had written a beautiful ceremony for our wedding. But she was so soft spoken that our guest couldn't hear any words of her inspirition at the ceremony.
May needed a microphone clipped on her robe, would have been better.
Thank-you !
