  • Kim officiated our wedding on 7/7/19 in Brooklyn and she exceeded our expectations! We booked Kim very early on in our planning process and from our initial conversation/consultation to going through drafts of the ceremony, she was a consummate professional. She listened to us and centered us and our love, never assumed or thought her ideas were the best and only ways. Our ceremony accurately reflected our love, personalities, interests, and passions. She captured and narrated our love story so beautifully. People laughed, cried, and nodded in agreement during the ceremony. We'd be remiss if we didn't mention Kim's beautiful, yet commanding voice. We highly recommend Kim, without any reservations!
