I am a cat lover, dinosaur enthusiast, proud Hufflepuff, and Universal Studios Annual Passholder. Born and raised in Florida, I spent the year after high school traveling the lower 48 states and Vancouver Canada. After that I lived in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota for a few years before coming back to Florida in 2005.
After officiating a friends ceremony in 2013 I was bit by the wedding bug, starting Ceremonies by Catherine soon after. Jumping head first into the wedding industry as an Officiant in March of 2015 and began coordinating events in September that same year, I've been on a roll ever since. As of December 2019 I have managed more than 60 wedding days, and officiated more than 600 wedding ceremonies (including a vow renewal on the canals of Jordaan, Amsterdam, The Netherlands and a vow renewal on the shores of Sylvan Lake in Custer State Park, South Dakota). In April 2020 I was excited to announce my new business name: The Ginger Officiant.
When I am not working my magic at weddings I enjoy relaxing at home with my two black cats, Snooki and Sir Winston, while watching The Office or listening to my favorite music which is a genre called Nerdcore. Look up MC Lars, Schaffer the Darklord, Captain Dan & The Scurvy Crew, Mega Ran, MC Frontalot or mc chris (just to name a few) and give them a listen - you'll thank me later.
One weekend a year I attend a cosplay convention called Megacon where attendees dress in costume as some of their favorite characters from pop culture, comics, video games, tv shows, movies, etc. My past costumes have been Nyan Cat, Grumpy Cat, She-Ra Princess of Power, Princess Peach, and most recently Wendy from Wendy's Hamburger Restaurant.
