About Rev. Kathi Moon

 

  Reverend Kathi Moon

Reverend Kathi Moon

I am a recycled housewife and a graduate of corporate America.

    I love personal growth work. Being in groups for days at a time with people who are being real and sharing their experiences and their hearts, is my idea of a good time. It's an activity that my husband Terry and I love doing together, sometimes as group leaders, sometimes as participants.

    As a minster and breathwork coach, I know for certain that teaching communication, conflict resolution, and stress management skills to individuals, couples, and groups — combined with the power of gratitude and forgiveness — is the part of my calling that will transform the quality of your relationships, and bring more fun and pleasure into every day of your life.

    I received my true calling and my education late in life:

    • 1999 Bachelor of Divinity degree, Universal Brotherhood University, Atlanta, GA
    • 2004 Master of Divinity degree, Universal Brotherhood University, Atlanta, GA
    • 2009 Doctor of Divinity degree, Universal Brotherhood University, Atlanta, GA
       

    How I became a wedding officiant

    Shortly after my ordination in 1999, I was asked to perform a “living room” wedding for a family member. At the time, my ministry was focused on forgiveness coaching and study groups, so this was a stretch for me. The happy couple wanted a ceremony that was all their own, rather than a repeat of the same words everyone else used in ceremonies. So, I interviewed them to learn about their relationship and their hopes and dreams for the life they would share. Together, we created a ceremony that was a perfect fit for them. They were delighted with the results, and this made me realize that there are masses of couples out there who want my out-of-the-ordinary wedding officiant services.

    What sets me apart from other wedding officiants

    On June 2, 2000, Terry and I were married by a minister who was a highly-qualified professional and a caring friend. He and his wife kindly invited me to spend the night before my wedding at their home where we shared dinner and watched romantic movies. They made everything beautiful and sacred, and he even washed my car in the morning before the ceremony. These acts of kindness made a deep impression on me.

    I consider your wedding to be a very special event, not only in your life, but in mine as well. I honor this by making your wedding as important to me as if it were my own. I give you and your wedding my full attention and presence throughout the entire time we work together, and especially on your wedding day. In other words, I’m there for you from your consultation all the way to your first magical married kiss and even beyond if you’d like me to be.

    My work is my passion! I love people, I love weddings, and I love my job!

    One of my favorite compliments came from a bride who commented that she thinks of me as her wedding doula.* I would love to be there for you so you have an easy, low-stress way to participate in creating your own unique and personal wedding ceremony. The ceremony we create together will inspire full hearts, eyes that may sparkle with a few joyful tears, and irrepressible smiles whenever you think of your wedding day.

    I look forward to hearing your love story and creating a beautiful, one of a kind ceremony for your special day!
