Thank you for taking time to consider Grand Avenue Wedding Officiants. I would love to meet you and consider the possibility of working together. I invite you to call, email or text me … I am eager to hear from you!
My discovery and planning process is fun and by the wedding day, our time spent collaborating allows me to create with my couples remarkable ceremony experiences.
If you are interested in knowing a little bit about me, here it is…
PERSONAL and PROFESSIONAL LIFE
BS (University of Texas at Austin)
MA (theology w/emphasis in counseling/psych at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA)
Certification as a Life Coach (Coaches Training Institute in San Raphael, CA)
Certification in Coaching with the Enneagram
I love working with couples as an officiant and I serve 30-40 couples each year. I am also fully engaged as a certified life coach (CPC) … 13 years in private practice (Stillwater and St Paul). For several years I have also served the University of MN as a life and health coach for the graduate students in the Health Coaching Certification and the Master of Arts in Health Coaching programs. I managed a theological bookstore for a decade, designed and built homes for a decade, and was fortunate to have the luxury of being a stay-at-home-mom for several years.
My spirituality stems from my upbringing (Christian), the mysteries of the natural world and global travel experiences. (I have had fascinating experiences!) I enjoy wisdom literature. My studies, relationships, life experiences and extensive global travel allow me to speak authentically and sensitively with those who are of all backgrounds and beliefs. I am immensely grateful for my life and my work.
TESTIMONIALS (see Wedding Wire for many more!)
from two Brides: Kjersti is thoughtful, reflective, and open-hearted. She crafted an amazing, artful ceremony that was clearly, truly written JUST for us. She moved both sets of our parents to tears and laughter — and our guests commented on how accurately she captured our essence as individuals and as a couple. We felt so lucky to have Kjersti as our officiant and our pre-wedding coach. We would recommend Kjersti without reservation to anyone looking for a wedding officiant! ~Austin and Kate
from a Bride & Groom: “Kjersti was the absolute perfect person to officiate our wedding. She has such a warm, lovely personality, she’s an excellent writer and speaker, smart and interesting, and an experienced professional. She thoroughly got to know us and created a ceremony that reflected who we are in a beautiful way. Guests at our wedding were coming up to us and our parents with comments like: it was the best ceremony I’ve ever been to, the most intellectually stimulating ceremony, the only ceremony that I’ve really learned something/taken something away for myself, etc. We of course loved it too! Kjersti’s services are about the marriage too. Her marriage enrichment activities– individually with her, at marriage enrichment day with her other couples, and at home with her written guidance– were such a wonderful thing for us to do and have helped build habits that will serve our marriage for the rest of our lives. We are so glad we found Kjersti!” ~Laura and Adam
from a wedding guest: “That was sensational!!!”
from the groom in a brief wedding (picture below): “I have witnessed many marriages officiated by judges and there is no comparison. Those ceremonies were not even in the same league as what we just experienced.” Elliot (and Mary)
from the grandmother of the bride: My husband has ahlzheimers and what you said spoke to me directly. Thank you so very much!
