For the love of stories

ABOUT KATHY

I grew up loving real cameras and photo albums. I’d arrange all my 4x6 prints in chronological order and build my shelf of memories, one photo book at a time. 

When I got married 15 years ago, recording video became part of capturing our family history. Now, as a busy mom of one awesome daughter and 2 crazy pups, preserving memories is more important than ever. Realizing our family story began on our wedding day, made me believe in the power of sharing a couple’s origin story in their ceremony.

 

I’ve said it a million times but this really is the best job I ever had!

Fun Facts: 

  • I was born in ’77 which makes me a Star Wars girl but Marvel has definitely won us over in recent years. 

  • I say hello to every dog I meet on the street.

  • My husband and I took ballroom dance lessons well
    before we were engaged. We still enjoy busting out our moves in the kitchen just to embarrass our daughter
    or annoy the dogs.

  • My favorite bands continue to be U2, Metallica and
    Pink Floyd and I am a HUGE stand up comedy fan.

PROFESSIONAL & INCLUSIVE

I am a Justice of the Peace in the state of Connecticut. 

I am also a secular minister, ordained by American Marriage Ministries,

an IRS 501c3 certified Church that empowers individuals to

perform marriages. I chose this organization because
I deeply respect
 and agree with their major tenets; every couple has the right to marry regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation.

I support marriage equality for all and happily welcome couples in the LGBTQ community.

The benefit to having both qualifications is I can officiate in
other states, like New York and Rhode Island. I can officiate in
Massachusetts as a Justice of the Peace with a one
day permission certificate from the state.

 

Personally, I was raised Roman Catholic but consider myself more 
of a spiritual agnostic as an adult. In creating ceremonies, we'll include whatever level of spirituality suits you best, even none at all. I am comfortable with adding mentions of god, bible readings as well as rituals that suit your faith, culture or personality.
