Rev. Kathie McCutcheon is an Interfaith Minister and Officiant who performs spiritual, secular or religious ceremonies.
Serving The Triangle, The Triad, Northern NC, Eastern NC and The Coast & Outer Banks
I was ordained as an Interfaith Minister in 2010 to minister to people of all faith traditions, belief systems and secular worldviews. My favorite part about officiating weddings is the Couples; getting to know them, listening to their story, and being a witness and facilitator of such an intimate rite of passage in their lives. Each couple and each wedding is so unique and it keeps me on my toes!
There are two very special wedding ceremonies that are close to my heart. One of my friends lost her husband a few years ago and she set out to meet someone new. It was a dating journey with many ups and downs, but in the end, she met and fell in love with a wonderful man, and I am so happy for her.
Another one of my friends was a very active marriage equality advocate in NC, and in her journey to secure marriage rights for ALL couples, she met and fell in love with an awesome woman. I got to co-officiate their wedding!
Kathie McCutcheon officiated our wedding in October 2020. She was flexible and easy to work with. COVID threw a wrench in our wedding plans and she adapted easily to the changes.
We really enjoyed the ceremony that Kathie wrote for us. We met with her over zoom and answered some questions about our relationship. She took our answers and crafted a unique ceremony that was perfect for us.
Kathie also ran our rehearsal. Her instructions were clear and easy to follow. Her leadership helped our wedding run smoothly.
Kathie spoke clearly and brought a small sound system to the ceremony. Our guests were able to hear and understand the ceremony, despite being spread out outside. We received lots of compliments on the ceremony! It was beautiful and we are very happy.
We are hoping to have a vow renewal with more guests when COVID is over, and we will definitely be reaching out to Kathie to conduct the ceremony.
