Katrina Baecht, Wedding Celebrant by Olivia Vale, Photographer

“Katrina worked so diligently to find what was meaningful to us, what marriage really meant to us, and she was able to translate into the perfect words what was in our hearts.”  –Stefanie & Levi

I craft & perform wedding and commitment ceremonies that are as unique and love-filled as your relationship.   Your custom ceremony will be personal, thoughtful, and celebrate your deep love for each other.

Gay or straight, secular or spiritual, I love working with open-minded couples who believe that their ceremony matters.   Whether you are inspired by  tradition or “Keeping Austin Weird,” your wedding day is about your love—I’m delighted to help you figure out the best way to share that with your friends and family in a way that will leave them talking.  Click here to learn more about why couples love to work with me!

Connect with Each Other:  Ultimately, the words you speak to one another are the most powerful part of the day.  As a celebrant and long-time writing & literature teacher, I believe deeply in the power of story and the power of words.   I will provide you with resources, guidance, and experience—but you will have total control over what goes into your ceremony.  By being an instrumental part of creating your own ceremony, you will not only experience your wedding day more deeply, you and your partner will experience a more profound and meaningful connection.

Express Yourself with Confidence:  Your ceremony should be about you and your beliefs—whatever they are. I’m not there dictate your choices. My commitment is to you as a couple, and I will help you express yourself with beauty and confidence.  I will tell your story and help you connect to traditions you love or create something entirely unique.

Big or Small:  Whether you want a quick “I-Do” for just the two of you, or you’ve been saving poetry under your pillow for years planning for a big celebration, together we’ll create a ceremony perfect for you. You’ll be able to relax and focus on the moment, knowing in advance the words that will unite you.

Created with Care:  As a wedding officiant, a significant part of my service is getting to know you as a couple.  I make the process easy and relaxed.  I listen to your story, your beliefs, and your desires and incorporate these elements into your wedding ceremony.  I officiate weddings all over Austin and the greater Hill County Area.  Email me to get started on your journey!  Click HERE to find out more about what I do as a wedding officiant.
