Justice of the Peace, Minister, Celebrant

Congratulations on your engagement! This is an exciting time and planning your wedding ceremony is a huge part of the process. I am honored to have worked with so many wonderful couples and creating ceremonies that have a long lasting impact is truly a joy.

Here’s a little info about how I do weddings:

Your ceremony will be completely custom written to represent your love story so it’s unique and personal to you both. My process provides a few different ways to share your story. Interviews are conducted through the use of in-depth questionnaires or recorded interviews.

Choosing a package with a recorded interview allows us all to be in the moment, remembering all the best parts of your story. The recording helps me add nuance and detail to your ceremony while providing you with a very special time capsule.

On your first year anniversary, you’ll receive this recording as a way to remember your story, as told in your own words – for EVER AFTER!

All my full service packages include:
• Unlimited phone calls, texts, emails and questions
• Provide a list of available vendors if needed
• Capturing your love story
• Custom ceremony script, created from your interview
• Assist in choosing readings
• Add or create unity rituals to reflect your personality or honor your culture
• Phone rehearsal one week before your wedding
• Perform your wedding ceremony
• Sign and file marriage license with appropriate town clerk’s office

I also offer personalized elopements or “mini-monies”. Let me know how I can help fulfill your ceremony needs and wishes!

If it sounds like I might be a good fit as your officiant, let’s set up a time to talk more soon!

I look forward to hearing your story and your vision for your big day!

All my best, with no stress!
Kathy Vass

Video Note: In the video below of Alison and Joe’s wedding, you can hear me sharing the couple’s love story that I wrote custom from their interview. We also incorporated a baby blessing into the ceremony to welcome their son into their community!

Kathy is absolutely wonderful and my husband and I are so thrilled that we had her officiate our wedding! From the moment we spoke and met with Kathy we knew that she was the perfect one to capture and tell our love story during our wedding ceremony. She helped us to incorporate important aspects and people into our ceremony that made it much more special! Planning a wedding is already a stressful process but with having Kathy as our officiant it made the process go smoothly.

Kathy is absolutely phenomenal — I don’t even know where to begin. From the moment we met Kathy she exuded kindness and professionalism, and you can tell she LOVES what she does. She truly gets to know you and wants your ceremony to be authentic and special — nothing about what she does is “cookie cutter.” Our guests were blown away by how personal our ceremony was, to the point that they thought Kathy was a friend of ours. You will not regret trusting Kathy with your special day!

Christie & Myles, The Waterview

Your wedding officiant plays a very important and personal role for your day and it’s important to find someone you click with. Upon our first meeting with Kathy, we felt like we already knew her. Kathy is so engaging, and she is so passionate about her work and invested in making your wedding ceremony personalized to reflect the couple on their big day. Kathy made us feel that we were in charge, and she was there to reflect our love story and she made it magical. Our ceremony was everything we wanted and was the exact representation of us. Please book Kathy, she will connect with you and make sure your love story is shared the way you want!

Kathy was absolutely amazing! She went above and beyond, handcrafting the ceremony to fit us perfectly. We got so many compliments on our wedding ceremony and on how organized our officiant was from vendors and guests. She worked with us to gather personal details and then crafted a story that was just beautiful. I cannot recommend her enough!

Kathy is amazing – she was our wedding officiant on October 9, 2021 and our guests still talk about how great she was to this day! Kathy took time to get to know our entire love story. She picked up little details and added them into our ceremony that made it so much more special – the guests thought she was a family member or a very close friend. She is wonderful and I couldn’t recommend Ever After Memories enough! Kathy is reliable, professional and so sweet – 150% recommend to book Kathy for your wedding!

Look no further for a JP, Kathy is the one! She has been so amazing to work with over the past two years, with our small 2020 wedding, then leading up to our 2021 wedding this last weekend. She is so caring and genuinely excited and interested in our lives, which makes standing with her on the wedding day that much more special (I just couldn’t stop tearing up during both ceremonies). We sat with her for hours to talk through our ceremonies and love story, and she sent us an amazing video of our love story to us on our 1st anniversary that was so cute! After our ceremony, so many of our guests were gushing about how amazing she was during the ceremony! Kathy is so organized with her planning of the ceremony (who’s walking when, who’s standing where, who’s sitting where, who says what, when does music play, etc) and that helps so much! Additionally, she had so many fun ideas and options for different things to add into the ceremony, this year we did a vow renewal for all of our guests and they absolutely loved it! I will definitely miss getting to chat with Kathy now that everything is over!
