Ceremonies By Kristi and Associates
Recently, I was asked, "Kristi, what is the greatest compliment you have ever received as a wedding officiant?" I would have to say that it was a time when a guest walked up to the bride and me after the ceremony and asked, "How many years have you 2 been friends?" I had just met the bride a month before when she hired me as her officiant.
A quick note: I always try to answer inquiries as quickly as possible. However, I do not use auto-replies. If you have taken the time to read over my information and write to me, I think you deserve a personal reply. Likewise, we do not run our service as a "one size fits all" assembly line. We pride ourselves on providing personalized, unique services that reflect every clients' individuality. So if it takes me a day or 2 to respond, know that I WILL get back to you.
