Hello, I am Kat Newman, Wedding Officiant, Writer and Proud Owner
of Ceremonies by Kat
"We live and work in the Paradise known as the Sunshine State." The Florida Keys and the West Coast (including Sarasota, Bradenton, Siesta Key, Venice Beach, Ft. Meyers) are internationally known as premier locations for destination weddings. As a writer and wedding officiant, my desire is to bring your expressions of love and commitment to life so they may be shared at your wedding or other life celebration.
I am a mature and dependable professional who also knows how to laugh and transmit that humor and humanity to others. I am an actress and this is my favorite "part" to date; witnessing and participating in the unabashed exclamations of commitment and devotion between two lovers.
I have been told I have a gift for "getting" people - for knowing how to get to the heart of what they want to say with ease. I want to share that gift with you in the form of the ideal ceremony. If it is just the two of you on a sailboat, on the beach in Islamorada or Key Largo, or in front of two hundred guests at an elegant waterfront venue - I will SCATTER JOY for you.
When you are planning a wedding, especially a destination wedding, there is so much to do. Let me put all my resources into crafting every detail of your ceremony; whether it involves bringing your vision to life, advising you and making suggestions or keeping it simple and conventional. " I am a Notary Public in the State of Florida with many references from happy clients and respected wedding professional partners.
CBK was borne out of love in the Florida Keys in 2013. In late 2017, we began our expansion
to the West and Southeast Coasts of the state.
