Wedding Officiation

Your wedding day should be one of the most incredible days of your life, and a life of joyful matrimony should not be ushered in by some boring, cookie-cutter ceremony.  

With a commitment to helping couples celebrate their love their way, I offer a modern approach to helping you and your partner say "I do."  Specializing in nondenominational elopements and intimate weddings, I am committed to crafting personalized ceremonies that tell your love story and create a road map for a lifetime of love and adventure.

What’s even better?  Your big day truly gets to be all about you, your partner, and the love you share.


What Couples are Saying


Kate brings her own light & lights up everyone around her. She got to know us & met us just where we were at, then wrote a thoughtful & meaningful ceremony which perfectly captured the essence of expressing who we are as a couple. She made our day even more fun, relaxing, & special than we could ever have hoped for.
If you're thinking about having Kate officiate for your special event- definitely do it! She's The Actual Best!

About Me

The Tattooed Wedding Officiant

As an ICF Certified Coach, social worker, and nondenominationally ordained minister who is trained in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, I pride myself on helping couples create and celebrate a love they can be proud of.

Joyful Matrimony is founded on the idea that wedding ceremonies should celebrate the unique love stories of each couple - and that the same attention that goes into planning your wedding should also apply to the sacred ritual of marriage. After sitting through one too many boring, cookie-cutter wedding ceremonies, and having the distinct honor of officiating weddings for family and friends, it became clear to that couples deserve to have a fun, personalized, modern approach to the celebration of their big day.

With a commitment to really getting to know the couples I work with, I craft non-denominational and secular ceremonies for brides and grooms who want their “I do’s” to be memorable and heartfelt. I believe that your wedding should reflect who you are as individuals who have chosen to come together for a lifetime of love and commitment; that it should tell a story of your past together, celebrate a once-in-a-lifetime moment, and serve as a roadmap for your future.

I am available for weddings and elopements, same-sex and gender-neutral marriages, and also offer premarital coaching for couples who want to build a strong foundation for a lifetime of love. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or want to hop on the phone to chat about your vision for that incredible moment you say “I do.”
