Why do I do this? Well, besides being a wife and a mother, I find there is no greater joy for me than to share in a couple's most special day. Whether it's before the world or simply between themselves, there is no greater gift than to witness the love when two people become one!

I am honored to serve the Mid-Atlantic and Greater Chesapeake region (and beyond!) and its need for unique, time-sensitive & cost-effective weddings with a special,caring touch. More than 17 years ordained & privileged to provide memorable, distinctive services to mark your special day. No counseling required.

Incorporating all wedding traditions at your chosen location I've officiated at hospitals, aboard yachts, at parks, in city settings, churches, private homes, waterfront piers, reception sites, chapels, even aboard an airplane! I am pleased to provide a ceremony that respects and incorporates ANY faith. Intercultural, interfaith,non-denominational, civil ceremonies and I welcome celebrating Blended Families. I gladly officiate same sex weddings and I eagerly support all organizations working towards Marriage Equality for all people! Every ceremony is customized to suit YOUR needs for your special day.

In some jurisdictions, I am able to serve as a proxy for your marriage application thereby shortening your stay in the locale while waiting for your license to become available. Ask me how! Read less

We found Rev Kirsten at a wedding expo and had a great conversation. We also reviewed her work on her site for 'Services of Distinction'. We truly were blessed to find her. We had a follow up meeting on facetime where we expressed our decision to use her services and requested next steps.
In the coming months we then had some homework to do from Rev Kirsten. The homework was for us to provide info so she could know more about us. We then had a follow up meeting weeks before to go over any concerns. Oh yes, and we filled her up with information about us. In turn this only help her create a ceremony which revolved around us and what we wanted to see. Every phrase was vocalized so artistically. How amazing. How incredibly amazing!

What have you done Rev Kirsten Blom-Westbrook!!

You made our wedding ceremony so incredibly wonderful. What a poetic expression of our love. I'm so grateful. I would not change a thing.

We thank Rev Kirsten Blom-Westbrook, Services of Distinction, for making our day so very very special.

After Rev. Kirsten performed the most wonderful wedding ceremony for my sister and brother-in-law, my husband and I decided to use her services for our wedding, and we are so so happy we did. We wanted a personal ceremony that reflected our values and what's important to us, and we got that and so much more. Rev. Kirsten really took the time to get to know us. I especially love that she had us write about each other and our relationship in a letter, and worked personal touches from those love letters into the ceremony. She's also incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. She helped us work important family members into the ceremony in special ways and elements of my husband's Jewish culture. She's flexible and 100% there to make sure the couple is happy. We had to change our venue 4 days before the wedding. She made the change without complaint (even though it was an hour farther away) and offered her support and helped us work out marriage license details since we were changing counties. We got so many compliments from guests who loved how personal the ceremony was. Our wedding was meaningful and fun, which is just what we were hoping for. Rev. Kirsten has since performed friends' wedding ceremony, so I can confidently say that, every time, she does an incredible job making the ceremony personal to the couple and special to everyone present.

Two weeks before our wedding, we decided to switch our venue and find a new officiant because of the legal changes in Virginia. I found Kirsten Blom-Westrook (Services of Distinction) online and sent her a message. I received a quick response, and we had a phone conversation shortly after. I knew after talking with Kirsten that she was the officiant I wanted. We arranged a FaceTime meeting for that evening so my partner (now husband!), could talk with Kirsten, too. The conversation proved that we were all in sync, and we moved forward with the contract and the planning.

Kirsten made the planning so easy! She gave us some homework to write our own story about how we met. She asked us not to share the stories with each other, and she incorporated elements of both into our ceremony. She also offered us the option to create our own vows. We declined because we felt confident that she would create the perfect ceremony for us.

And we were right. Not only were KIrsten's words beautiful, poignant, and tailored to us; her delivery and timing were amazing. Our families and all of our other guests were mightily impressed. Everyone raved about her afterward.

We're amazed at how quickly Kirsten responded to our initial request and how easily everything came together. We are so glad that we found her and hired her for our special day. If you're looking for a officiant, we recommend that you strongly consider Services of Distinction.

It was an honor to work with Rev. Kirsten for our wedding. She is very friendly and personable, which made talking to her about the process very easy and stress free. After the first conversation we had with her, we knew we had found the right person to marry us. Rev. Kirsten explained explained everything in such a detailed and clear manner that we had no questions afterwards. During the ceremony, she her soft tone and conversation like service made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. She made our service very personable and special. Since then, we've received many compliments about her and her service. Everyone was happy and very impressed by her and many wanted to know where we had found such a wonderful officiant. Amazing experience!

Kirsten performed a very intimate wedding ceremony for myself and my husband. We were very pleased with everything. We didn't have anything specific planned for her to say and she took the reigns and spoke beautifully and eloquently. She also provided us with an abundant amount of scripture, readings, and poems to chose from. She was easy to communicate with and we are so happy we chose her.

Kirsten did an amazing job, we only met with her twice before the wedding and each had to write something about the other to give to her and she pulled together a personalized, sweet, not a dry eye in the room ceremony. There just are enough things I can say to describe how pleased we were, just fantastic!

Stunning brides! I am honored you shared such intimate moments with me and your friends and family. Your love for one another was palpable that day and though the weather was a bit nippy, the warmth we all felt from sharing those moments was very comforting. Thank you my friends!
