Kelly Jo is absolutely, hands down wonderful! I am a wedding professional and had a good grasp on all of the other aspects of how we wanted our wedding to be. When it came to planning our ceremony...that was a different story. I had heard from my fellow vendors about Kelly Jo... Read More and their experiences with her. And boy were they right! From the moment we chatted on the phone I knew we were in fantastic hands. My husband and I aren't super religious, but we did want a personal and memorable ceremony. Kelly Jo assisted with that and so much more. From allowing us to customize the ceremony. To suggesting different passages, Kelly Jo was extremely knowledgeable and so helpful. Thank you for putting my mind at ease! And giving us a beautiful start to our marriage.

Rev. Kelly is amazing!

Reviewed on 6/10/2014 Melia K

I cannot say enough positive things about Reverend Kelly. She was absolutely the sweetest person I could ever imagine to marry my fiancé and me. I had researched officiants online in the area close to where we were getting married and came across her so we decided to meet. After... Read More just a few minutes of talking with her, I knew I wanted her to marry us. She has such a gentle and calming nature that puts you at ease and makes you feel very comfortable. Originally, my fiancé had someone in mind to be our reverend whom I thought was the right person. He had married one of his close friends that sadly passed away. This pastor also did the memorial service for his friend and it was amazing so I initially agreed. After meeting with him, he was actually quite inconsiderate and actually made me cry and I felt very uncomfortable. I knew he was not the one. Reverend Kelly was exactly the opposite and perfect for us! She was always responsive in emails, and quick to answer any questions I had. She was willing to help us tremendously to make our ceremony exactly how we envisioned it. On the day of the ceremony, when she first walked in to see me, she was so sincere and real and genuinely happy for me, which was a great feeling. It felt like I had known her forever and truly loved her for being such a beautiful person. She even said that she could truly feel our love and that made it so special for me. Our pre-ceremony prayer was so amazing and had my heart beating so fast and the tears flowing that I knew our ceremony would be the same. Thank you so much for making my wedding day so perfect! All of my guests complimented what a beautiful ceremony it was and that it was the best wedding they had ever witnessed. It truly was a dream come true for me! Your personal touch and caring nature made it all the more perfect!

We had the pleasure of working with Kelly for our wedding on October 28, 2016 at The Cork Factory Hotel. From our first meeting with Kelly, we knew that she was the Reverend for our special day.

Rev Kelly Jo Singleton was always very polite from the very beginning through emails back and fourth since I was an out-of-state bride and even the first time I met her in person the day before my wedding for our ceremony rehearsal. Now the day of my wedding, my very special day... Read More the reason I paid her to be there as a woman of faith was not very nice at all to my husband, groomsman, bridesmaids even my step dad. She was very rude and very unsympathetic on the day that if something was going wrong, which we were running behind, she should have comforted me and navigated the situation with poise but instead she was worried about how much time we paid her to be there for!? Which I choose and paid the highest package and also told her I wanted the ceremony to be 30 mins long? So be careful how long you tell her you want her for because she will hold you to it. Also who can help the mishaps that will happen the day of your wedding? Rev Kelly Jo Singleton should have handled the situation more Professionally and be more Polite instead she cracked under pressure and ruined our mood for my beautiful ceremony that my husband was decorating last minute so it would be perfect that is why we were running late, I did not expect the Unprofessionalism and Uncompassion at all from a "top rated" Officient on The Knot.

Rev. Kelly Jo Singleton

Reflecting back to the over 900 weddings that I have happily officiated since graduating from a 2 year Seminary program and being officially ordained, it continues to be a highlight of my life. From the very formal church weddings, to the outdoor barn weddings, to the intimate ceremonies by the Conestoga River, or the tender exchange of vows in a nursing home, I’m grateful to have shared in each one. Even though I have been walking the path of an Interfaith Minister and Professional Officiant for many years, each wedding renews my passion and keeps me doing what I love to do.
