Testimonials

Karen was such a great find. Not only was she creative with our love story but made the ceremony go so smooth. It was beyond what I had imagined. Me and my husband wanted simple but meaningful, she delivered all that and then some. With only speaking and meeting a few times, she never felt like a stranger. She just made my day the day I wanted. We couldn’t have been happier with having her!!

Thank you so much for everything! You were wonderful!!!!

“Karen did a great job officiating our daughter’s wedding. It was a very quick, garden wedding, just two weeks after the groom returned from Afghanistan. Karen was very accommodating and VERY flexible. I would have her officiate at any function again.”

“Karen made our wedding special, unforgettable and memorable. She personalized and tailored our wedding to both my husband’s and my own personal preferences. She met with us multiple times prior to the big day to ensure that everything was perfect and exactly what we wanted. We are still thrilled, after 4 years, with how personal and special our wedding was. It was certainly a day filled with love and Karen ensured that happened from personal anecdotes, vows, sayings, and stories we provided and chose. We couldn’t be happier!”

“Karen Schultze is a first rate counselor and now someone I consider one of my “breast-friends”! After being diagnosed with Breast Cancer, Karen has been a God-send. Her knowledge and compassion know no bounds. I feel as though it was kismet the moment we met. If you need help through a crisis or a spiritual/emotional pick-me-up, Karen is your gal!”

Rev Karen was outstanding to work with. It was a pleasure to have her as our wedding officiant. She went above & beyond to help us make our wedding such a special day. She took the time to ask us questions about our relationship to craft a ceremony that was unique and personable to us. She was always available via text or phone call if we had any questions. And during the wedding she was kept us calm and reassured us that the ceremony would go smoothly even when stress levels were high. She took the time to make our day special and we are so grateful that we had her perform at are wedding. We would highly recommend Rev Karen to anyone looking for a wedding officiant who is well prepared, thorough and meticulous in her ceremony preparation and is overall a wonderful person to work with. Thank you for everything Rev Karen!

-Dana K.

Karen was easy to work with. She had plenty of ideas and helped us pick certain things out. The best part was the questionnaire that my husband and I filled out before the wedding. And Karen made the part of the ceremony.

-Linda

My new wife and I decided to get married while we were in the heart of dutch country. Jodi had done the alot of research for an officiant, as we needed a specific date during the week and it was rather late to schedule someone. That evening when I got home, she explained that she spoke w Karen and had made an appointment for me to sit with her prior to the ceremony. I met w Karen and she graciously welcomed me into her home and spent all the time necessary until I felt comfortable with the information she needed to officiate a heartfelt ceremony. Well, she did just that. She touched on each and every item that we asked her to and added her own nuances throughout. We could not have asked for a more personal yet professional effort on her behalf. She truly made it a memorable day. Thanks Karen.

-Bill T.

Karen was beyond helpful through the whole process. My husband and I were looking for someone who could provide a more spiritual ceremony, rather than one that was religious based. Karen was more than eager to work with us and was flexible with her meeting scheduling. She did an amazing job at getting to know us and designing a ceremony that would fit our personalities. Karen delivered a beautiful sermon and helped us in researching a tree planting ceremony and the whole day turned out beautifully. Our only small complaint was that during the introduction to the ceremony she said called my husband by the wrong name. Thankfully, it only happened once and we were able to laugh it off. Overall, we would recommend Karen for anyone looking for an officiant.

Reverend Karen Schultz officiated our backyard wedding September 10th, 2016. We couldn’t have been happier with her service!! She was able to really project our story and our unique love for one another durning the service. Numerous guests have continued to commpliment the service she provided. Karen was a great communicater and was available to answer questions and concerns before the wedding as well as being opened to our own wants. Karen was perfect for our beautiful backyard wedding!!

Heather S.

From the moment I contacted Rev. Karen, she was super quick to respond and answer any questions. After we met her and understood her process, we knew she’d be the best officiant for us. She crafts a personal Love Story using your answers to specific questions. She was able to use our answers to create a sweet and touching ceremony. The ceremony she wrote definitely reflected our love. It was funny, sweet, romantic and we were able to incorporate Lutheran vows. Everything she said as very heartfelt and meaningful but a touch long. I can’t explain how perfect it was to have Rev. Karen officiate our wedding. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants something special at their ceremony!

Katie

We were so pleased with the beautiful ceremony that Karen performed. The personalized address was both moving and funny. Karen’s husband also provided and worked the speakers during the ceremony. We held our service outdoors on a farm. On the day of the wedding it was very cold and very windy. On top of that Karen had a 100 degree fever. Despite all of those obstacles,  Karen never complained and performed a perfect ceremony. We received many wonderful compliments from guests who found the service moving and personal. We highly recommend Karen!
