Men300x399“Grand Avenue Wedding Officiants are a Celebrated Choice!”

I have worked numerous times with Kjersti Moline, and Carolyn Germaine, of Grand Avenue Wedding Officiants by providing the sound equipment and music for the wedding ceremonies they each officiate. I can attest first hand in regards to their service… There is a distinct difference between a retired Judge making an “appearance”, and Grand Avenue Wedding Officiants…..The rapport building, attention to detail, and oratory delivery, are too important to overlook. Grand Avenue Wedding Officiants, Kjersti Moline and Carolyn Germaine, do just that! ~ Rheo Johansen, DJ

“Having Kjersti as our wedding officiant was like having icing on our wedding cake! Her soft, sweet disposition and wonderfully knowledgeable spirit added an air of joyous spirituality to our ceremony. Little did we know upon first contacting Kjersti that we would be spending additional time in close contact during our couples coaching sessions. We discovered how much help our meetings became as we neared our big day. Not only was she instrumental in keeping our stress down, she was a huge part in the planning of exactly the ceremony we wanted. We are very thankful for Kjersti’s understanding and meeting our needs and would recommend her services as Wedding Officiant to anyone.” ~ Sara and Alan  

“Bravo to you, Carolyn! We truly appreciate all that you did to make our day super special! You are like an old friend helping us make our wedding as we envisioned. You offered ideas for us to get started with writing our wedding vows. You guided us when we were at a loss for ideas of how our celebrations should start. We like that you kept reminding us that it was ‘our’ day and you were there to help us make it memorable. We appreciated your professionalism as well as your kind, calming soul. Our ceremony was very romantic and personable. Thank you, Carolyn, for everything!”  ~ Trisha & Tom

CuteGirlsKjersti, thank you so much for taking the time to meet with us.  We very much enjoyed speaking with you about our wedding, engagement, and relationship.  You were non-judgmental and appeared to be genuinely interested in our story.  We feel that is an important attribute for the person who will lead our ceremony.   We were also impressed by your credentials as well as (and even more so) your authentic responses to our questions. You demonstrated that you are not arrogant or so “professional” that we should just sit back and listen to you, but rather you seek to be a partner with us in creating a special day and moment for us and our close friends and family. This is exactly what we desire in our wedding ceremony. We would like to engage your services, including your coaching expertise.” ~ James and Gina 

“I just wanted to say that you [Carolyn] were spectacular, and such a loving warm person. Everyone had such wonderful things to say about your ceremony reflections on us as a couple, it was absolutely spot on for us, and encompassed everything that means the world to us. The amount of love in the air was unlike anything that we had ever experienced before. Thank you for contributing to that, and making such an impact on the most special day of our lives.”  ~ Robin and Arthur  

“Thank you Kjersti for your ability to translate our feelings and thoughts into a beautiful and meaningful ceremony. I had so many guests tell me that our wedding ceremony was the best they’ve ever been to – and the reason for that is the fantastic job you did for us. You made sure that Paul and I were 100% happy with the ceremony!  It was everything we wanted it to be!  Thank you!    ~ Paul and Julie Mikolich

DSC_0192Carolyn!  Everyone gushed about what a lovely ceremony we had and loved how personal it was and especially loved that you were kind enough to incorporate Brian’s daughter  into the ceremony. You made our wedding day so memorable and personal…so much that you even made Brian tear up during the ceremony and I have hardly ever seen that from him! You were a wonderful officiant and I have been giving rave reviews and always keep you in mind when I hear of other couples becoming engaged so I can recommend you!!  Thank you so much for the wonderful ceremony and personal attention to making our day so special and wonderful. ~  Jennifer & Brian

She met with us several times before the wedding to get to know us. She offered her insights as a life coach into what makes a relationship work and how we could build the best marriage possible. Steve and I always looked forward to these meetings and we learned a lot from them. We would highly recommend Kjersti to anyone.” ~ Steve and Cara

“My husband and I decided to work with Grand Avenue Wedding Officiants after our initial consultation with Carolyn. She is very supportive, listens well and helped us create our own personalized wedding ceremony. We met with Carolyn 3 times in person after our initial meeting to begin to put together our wedding ceremony and so she could get to know us a little better which really helped make the ceremony more personal. When we first started planning the wedding I was originally focused on the reception and the big party, but when we started to work with Carolyn she helped my husband and I focus our attention on the real reason we are throwing a huge party! I don’t think our day could have gotten any better, we had freshly fallen snow and all of our friends and family around us, with Carolyn’s help our vision for our wedding ceremony came true. We both enjoyed working with Carolyn!”  ~ Mitch and Jennifer
