We are more than happy to have had Carol Cousineau as our officiant. She was more than friendly and helpful There was a delay in our ceremony and her patience is extremely appreciated. I would definitely recommend her to any couple, especially any Persian couples, since she is quite familiar with the Persian traditional ceremonies and customize ours with a Honey ceremony. In addition, her personality helped us to enjoy every single second of the ceremony.
Elham & Ali
Carol Cousineau was an absolute pro and was invaluable in putting our ceremony together and making sure everything went according to plan. We wouldn't have know how to plan out the event without her. Also we both felt that she really took the time to understand us as a couple, which we really appreciated. Our guests really enjoyed the ring warming ceremony that Carol suggested.
Kate & David
Carol(Cousineau),We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you very much for officiating at our wedding. You did a fantastic job and we would recommend you to anyone. You were always on time for meetings and most importantly for the day of the wedding. You had an air about you that really put us at ease on the big day. I really appreciated the little lace handkerchief you gave me. It’s now in our wedding photo album as a keepsake.
Joanne and Mario
Dear Carol, We wanted to write you a note to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such a beautiful wedding ceremony on August 31 at Orchard View. We could not have asked for a more wonderful person to work with! We really appreciated your flexibility and willingness to plan so much over email - it really put our minds at ease while planning a wedding from a few provinces away! We also really appreciated your openness to our suggestions and ideas and your creativity in bringing them all together perfectly into an unforgettable ceremony. It truly was perfect in every way. Thank you so much again! Please find attached a few shots from the big day that we thought you might like to see, including the "second kiss!' All the best,

Carol Cousineau was a GEM to have in our ceremony. We told her that we wanted something light hearted, romantic and beautiful. And that is exactly what she made for us. We have her business card and we are telling everyone who is getting married that they would be smart to use Carol. We can't say enough how wonderful she made us feel. She took away our stress, metting with her was great. She was just what we needed. She asked us questions and taylored the ceremony to our personalities and those of our guests. It was perfect :)
Sarah & Shaun
Carol Cousineau exceeded our expectations. She offered additional ideas of what to say and the sand ceremony. She helped to make it that much more special. We wanted to make our wedding more of a family affair because it was the joining of my son and my new husband and I as a family. Carol suggested he read a poem called "family". It was a very special moment my son will always remember. Just want to say a big thank you to Carol Cousineau. Carol you were awesome and can't thank you enough for helping to make our day so special.
Carole and Richard
Hello Carol (Cousineau), I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for such a wonderful job on Friday night. Our family could not stop raving about the wonderful job that you did! They did not expect such a warm felt wedding ceremony (considering it was in our living room) but you did an excellent job in doing so. I will continue to refer All Seasons, and highly recommend that your services are requested. Sarah and Andrew
Sarah and Andrew
Carol Cousineau was the right person to conduct our ceremony. She is knowledgeable and observant; a kind and gentle person with a sense of humour! She coached us through the intricacies of the ceremony from the entrance to the toast, delicate details that were well appreciated. Our wedding day was exquisite; all of our guests felt welcomed and relaxed. Tom and I savoured every moment. Carol, thank you for all that you contributed to making this day a memorable one. The staff was exceptional, by that I mean good customer service from the time we made initial contact and for the duration of the planning stages. I am an event planner so I am experienced in dealing with a broad variety of people across the country. Your website is very informative and user friendly for those who need the step by step. You have a wonderful organization in place.

Carol Cousineau was amazing. She helped us get everything in order and created a ceremony that joined both of our families together.

Hi Carol (Cousineau) We wanted to take the time to thank you for allowing us to achieve such an intimate and personalized wedding ceremony. We loved your professionalism and tireless help in providing us with examples of ceremonies and readings. We had no idea where to start and you simplified everything for us! Uncle Norm and aunt Ellie have only great things to say about you and we now know why. Our wedding day wouldn't have been the same without you. THANK YOU for making our day extra special. Now if my friends can wake up and get hitched, we will be referring them to you - as we believe that there is no better person to pronounce them as husband and wife! Many thanks from the newlyweds,
Amy & Jason
Carol Cousineau far surpassed our expectations. Not only was she friendly and well spoken, she was also very knowledgable and organized. She gave us ideas for the ceremony that we would have never thought of. She made our special day that moch more special. From the first meeting to the ceremony she made us feel relaxed...what could have been very stressful didn't feel stressful at all. Thank you so much!
Angela & Dmitri
Carol Cousineau was amazing. We had to plan a local wedding at the last minute because a family emergency prevented us from going through with our original plans. Carol was very accommodating and met with us just over a week before the ceremony. She really took the time to get to know us and to tailor our ceremony to tell the story of our relationship. She even had a draft ceremony ready for us that same evening! She was a pleasure to work with and everyone at our wedding commented on how great she was. Thank you for all your help!
Jamie & Ben
Hi Carol (Cousineau), I just wanted to extend a huge Thank You to you, for performing such a beautiful ceremony for our wedding. You were so fantastic and patient when it came to the whole planning process, and when it came to leading our wedding party through the whole rehearsal process. The actual execution of the real ceremony itself was better than we both imagined it ever could be. We both truly felt that it reflected us and our personalities to a tee, and it felt truly authentic. Many people came up to us afterwards and told us that it was one of the most beautiful and touching ceremonies they had seen, and people specifically commented on how wonderful an officiant you were. Thank you so very much for helping to make our Wedding Day so special and meaningful. I hope to see you at another wedding down the road! Jesse and Justin
Jesse and Justin :)
Carol Cousineau was the best. She was so kind, patient, and created the perfect wedding for us. We had never heard of a ring warming ceremony before, and after Carol explained it, we knew we had to include it in our wedding. She has a way with words, and anything we could think of, she came up with the perfect way to say it. Thank you for EVERYTHING Carol, you really made our day perfect.
Laura & Darren
Carol Cousineau exceeded our expectations in every way! She was 100% accommodating leading up to our wedding, she incorporated everything we wanted in our ceremony, and she took care of all of the details we hadn't thought of.

We couldn't be happier with our decision to choose All Seasons Weddings and to have Carol as our officiant! Liz and Jamie

Carol Cousineau exceeded our expectations. She was fantastic! Thank you to Carol for her excellent services!
Sonia and Philippe
As mother of the bride, I can honestly say that she helped them create a very lovely, intimate and "them" wedding ceremony. She looked professional, spoke beautifully and had a warm presence that all worked to create a beautiful ceremony. She suggested that we reverse the traditional seating arrangement so that we sat opposite our daughter and it was perfect, because we could see her face the entire time, rather than her back, as is typically the case. Great suggestion! She was key to the success of their ceremony, and we were really happy to have her officiate. Couldn't recommend her more highly.

Words are not enough to describe how wonderful Marie (Migneault) is! From the beginning she knew how to guide us, and helped us plan the perfect ceremony and make it all our own. Her professionalism and caring nature shined through, not only during the ceremony, but the entire process. She has a calming effect and nothing is more important on such an emotional day! Her sense of humour came into play when our 2 year old nephew decided to start chatting with us during the ceremony!! Marie helped make our ceremony something special, something we (and our guests) will always remember. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you Marie!! — Amy + Charly
Amy & Charly
It was with great pleasure that we had Marie (Migneault) officiate our wedding. Marie helped us make our ceremony more special with some little touches that made all the guests feel included. She made sure to conduct the ceremony in English and French to accommodate our guests. From the first meeting to the big day we had positive interactions with her. She has a way about her that makes you feel calm and confident. We highly recommend Marie for your special day! Mylène and Andre

“Marie! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You played a huge role in making the entire day a success and even a year has passed and we still are filled with gratitude that we had chosen you. You will always be a part of this important memory”. Marie is such a caring and supportive person.. and you can just feel that she loves (and is proud of) what she does. We wrote our own bilingual wedding vows and ceremony, but when Marie animated them, it was MAGICAL as every word coming out of her mouth was so heartfelt…she made us feel so special as if she was part of the family. She also rendered the entire process very easy… and helped us with creative and artistic details we would have never thought of. Simply said, we couldn’t have made a better choice ! We love you Marie, and special thanks to All Seasons Weddings for making this wonderful day possible.

Joan Bruce-Nibogie was amazing. She is a lovely person, was very flexible with our plans, and made us both feel very comfortable throughout. All our family and friends who were present thought she did a great job as well. I had to make several changes back and forth with regards to start time and venue and at no time was I made to feel like it was an inconvenience. Patient, understanding and friendly. Lots of people at the ceremony kept asking how I found Joan because she was soo great, so I explained your service to many already. Your service and help was great! Joan was wonderful! Overall we were very happy with how it all turned out!
Jennifer & Nicholas
Joan Bruce-Nibogie was absolutely phenomenal. She made us feel very comfortable, as if we'd known her for years. Even our guests were asking if she was a friend or family member.

Thank you for providing such a great service! xo

We would like to express our sincere gratitude for your friendly and professional service, as well as Joan's. There are no words to express our experience with Joan.

Christine & James
Joan Bruce-Nibogie was amazing! So friendly and seems to really love being an officiant. Her personality was a perfect fit for us. We couldn't have selected a better officiant. Having Joan as our officiant felt like an old friend was marrying us. We would recommend in a heartbeat. Once we spoke with joan we knew that our choice of officiant was one decision that would not cause us any stress. We were all around impressed with All Seasons Weddings.
Mark & Stephanie
When we started looking for an officiant for our 1940’s Hollywood themed wedding, someone suggested that we contact Joan Bruce - Nibogie Long before the wedding she was able to provide us with a wealth of information. She was always excited but was able to keep me calm on the podium.She asked that Maissa and I send her our vows beforehand so she could print them out for us in case we needed some assistance or forgotten some words. She also printed them out on parchment paper for us to keep as souvenirs of the ceremony.Joan arrived at the venue and made herself part of the family.Joan left no doubt in our minds that she was the perfect person to marry us.
Maissa & JC
From the instant we began working with Joan Bruce-Nibogie, she took the time to get to know Tony and I. Everything from the ceremony to our readings was carefully chosen in order to reflect the two of us. Joan did an excellent job at creating the perfect ceremony for the two of us! Also anytime I had any questions, your staff was always there to answer our questions. Thank you!
Shelley & Tony
Joan Bruce-Nibogie was amazing and my husband and I highly recommend her! We decided on a non-traditional wedding (for sure!) with funny vows and antics that would get all our friends and family laughing! Along with some "lighthearted" vows, about putting up with my back-seat driving, etc, Joan's acting background surely played a part in the FANTASTIC job she did, but it was more her enthusiasm and excitement that really made it great fun for us! We had a fabulous time, we were thrilled with her, and truly believe no one else could have done better! Thanks again Joan!
Trick and Andie
We chose Joan Bruce-Nibogie because of the kind and pleasant smile in her photograph, she did not disapoint. With every interaction with Joan she left us feeling relaxed, confident in our decision to choose her and closer in the relationship we were developing with her. When she arrived the day of the ceremony we greeted her as we did all our family and friends with a big hug and a warm welcome. The ceremony was done professionally and personally. We could not have been happier in our decision to have Joan as our wedding officiant and I would highly recommend her. Thank you Joan.
Keith & Kimberly
Joan Bruce-Nibogie made our wedding that much more special. She took the time to get to know us and she helped create a ceremony that was poignant, kind, funny, and simply beautiful. She is a gifted communicator. Marty and I feel privileged to have had her be part of our wedding. I wish there were words to describe how she reached out and touched the hearts of our friends and family. They are still talking about her and how impressed, how grateful and how happy were are that she delivered our ceremony. From the moment I made contact with All Seasons Weddings I was impressed. The fact that your company treated me with such kindness from the first connection took one worry completely away. I will for sure tell friends and family about the exceptional service I received. Again, thank you!
Sharlene & Marty
We feel so lucky that we found Joan Bruce-Nibogie to lead our ceremony! Her warmth, kindness, and intimacy was deeply appreciated: I can't count the number of people who commented on how moving the ceremony was. Many of our guests seemed to think that Joan had known us for ages, which is, in itself, a testament to the real joy Joan takes in her work. Having her at the front of the room with us put us both at ease and it really felt that she shared our excitement and happiness. Prior to the wedding, Joan was easy to contact and prompt at returning messages. Her ceremony script was relaxed and beautiful and she was happy to accommodate any changes we made to personalize the ceremony. We're so glad we had the chance to work with her and would recommend her without hesitation!
Emily & Steve
We were incredibly fortunate to have Joan Bruce-Nibogie officiate at our wedding. Joan is lovely, warm, and very well organized. She made us feel relaxed and happily excited about our ceremony from the very first moment we met her. She’s someone you feel like you’ve known and trusted forever. Thank you Joan, for all your attention before and after our wedding, and for making our special day all the more special to us.
Catherine & Dustin
Hi Joan (Bruce-Nibogie), We just wanted to say a sincere and heartfelt thank you for your words two Saturdays ago. The ceremony was beautiful and we were able to really take it all in (even the heat!). Our guests were very moved by what you, and we, said and we heard nothing but great comments about your character and sentiment. Some even thought you'd been a long-standing friend or family member; it definitely felt that way (which is amazing for only having met you the night before). We will cherish the package you've made for us, and the day, forever. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You are wonderful!
Lauren & Seth
Joan was our officiant for our wedding on October 2, 2015. We couldn't have been more pleased! In fact we had guests tell me even days afterwards how personal and heartfelt it was and that it did not feel at all like the "ordinary" ceremony - which was exactly what we wanted! When we were planning for our ceremony, Joan provided some suggestions with additions that we could make to our ceremony. One of the suggestions was the passing of the rings for our guests to hold our rings in their hands and bless them with their well wishes for our future. We loved the idea as did our guests! People posted pictures afterwards on social media with our rings in their hands and such and it showed how much a part they really were of our wedding ceremony. We loved that they were more than just guests in attendance but that they really participated in making our day so special. We can't thank Joan enough for the words and messages she said and we honestly felt like a member of our family was marrying us! She is positively lovely! Kristine & Steve Oct 2nd, 2015
Kristine & Steve
Dear Joan (Bruce-Nibogie) Thank you so much for marrying us. It couldn't have gone any better and been so perfectly 'us". I knew you would be the perfect person to perform the ceremony and you were more genuine and it was more beautiful,thanks to you, than we anticipated. I can't believe you cried too! You are so amazing Joan. We can't thank you enough. We could not have picked a better officiant. I am so happy I met you. Thank you from the bottom, top and sides of our hearts! Love Phillipa and Ryan
Phillipa and Ryan
Good evening Joan, Darren and I are passing time waiting for our flight off to our honeymoon and I wanted to take some time to write and thank you for performing such a wonderful ceremony. In the days since the wedding we've had so many people tell us how much they enjoyed our wedding and one common theme that everyone mentions is how wonderful Joan was! One went so far as to say how nice it was that we found someone who knew us so personally to perform our ceremony only to be surprised to hear we had met only a few short weeks ago. Thank you, Joan, for your part in what will be remembered as one of the best days of our lives, for reminding us to breathe, and for a ceremony that brought us so much closer together. It will not be forgotten. We wish you the very best.

This past Sunday we had our ceremony at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum with the fantastic Jody Haucke as our officiant . Jody was quite simply a dream to have at our wedding. His professionalism, organization, and his eye for aesthetic and placement of our bridal party and our guests helped maximize the uniqueness of our venue. We are truly grateful to have had his unparalleled knowledge at our disposal. Our ceremony was flawless. Jody's articulation and passion in our ceremony was endearing and entertaining. Every line he spoke was delivered with so much care and feeling that our family and friends are still talking about how breathtaking he was as our officiant. We can never thank him enough for everything he has done, because we know that the magic of our wedding would have been a little less without him.
Marie-Eve and Robert
From start to finish we thoroughly enjoyed using All Seasons Weddings. We absolutely loved our officiant Jody (Haucke) who made the planning and ceremony an absolute breeze. We would highly recommend this company and this officiant for anyone who wants to enjoy getting married! Olivia & Marcus 09/08/2016

Jody Haucke was absolutely fantastic, helped us choose the perfect ceremony, and went above and beyond - writing down names of everyone important the day of, coordinating his outfit to our colour scheme, etc. Everyone I have corresponded with so far have been the most prompt and respectful with replying of all the vendors I dealt with. Super friendly!! This service was so helpful to my partner and I. We felt so comfortable being able to see all the officiants' experience or openness to performing same sex ceremonies. An incredible resource for the LGBT+ community.
Sara & Lucie
Jody Haucke was very helpful and was always there to answer any questions we had about the process. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone else.
Ben & Brianne
I'd like to commend Jody (Haucke) on his spectacular service at our wedding. He brought such a unique character that captured the assembly, and really helped us feel at ease. He was very professional in breaking down the series of events, and so friendly and approachable he really felt like he belonged. Thank you so so so much Jody for being a part of the best day of our lives.
Natasha & Geoff
Jody Haucke was amazing! He let us tailor our ceremony the way we wanted it. He was professional and very easy going. We couldn't think of a better officiant for our ceremony :) I would 100% recommend All Seasons to anyone. The process is one of the easiest parts of wedding planning!

I wanted to say thank you, from both of us, for her help officiating the wedding. The guests appreciated the split of the languages (English and Russian), as well as her thoughtful words. I also really appreciated that she was comfortable allowing us to change the ceremony to suit our personal preferences, and blending it together with the more standardized portions. Eva Blaja was invited to stay for our dinner, and was extremely friendly and personable, and made several new friends with both the English- and Russian-speaking guests. Thank you once again - and we recommend her wholeheartedly!
Kate & Jeffrey
Eva Blaja was an absolutely amazing officiant, she made our day stress-free by clear communication, setting expectations and preparing in advance. During the ceremony everything went smoothly. The way she conducted the ceremony made it very personal, special and with some good humor where it required to make us more relaxed. She helped us with setting up the wording of the ceremony, she was always very clear and quick answering our questions. We couldn't wish for a better day and a better ceremony. Thank you Eva!
Tatiana & Patrick
Mrs. Blaja was extremely professional, pleasant and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. During our first meeting, she explained to us step by step the process of getting married. She is elegant and well spoken. Eva was available to us whenever we had questions. She was flexible and assisted us in creating a personalized ceremony according to our theme. We wanted a bilingual (French/English) ceremony and Eva made this come true. She alternated between both English and French without repetition and made our guests feel comfortable during the ceremony. Mrs. Blaja truly made our day special. Thank you – Merci
Mavrick & Berlin

Our beautiful wedding was August 6, 2016....I put much thought and planning into our Day. One of the items that was of great importance to me was the Officiant and their personality, bilingualism and energy they brought! Nicola was fabulous! She quickly understood the "feeling" we wanted in our Ceremony and she understood our sense of humour as well. She was very open to my adaptation of the Ceremony text and our vows. She ensured that she was comfortable with pronunciation of the French text which made the changing back and forth between languages seamless! Our friends and family truly appreciated this special attention to detail! Nicola was as excited as I was in the planning which only made me more excited! Thank you Nicola for your important role in our Day and the laughter and appreciation of tears you shared with us.
Linda & Denis
Thank you for putting up with our last minute craziness! We are very thankful that we had you as our officiant!
Amanda and Scott
Nicola Wolters and the rest of the All Seasons staff were super supportive and enthusiastic about our special day. They were friendly, well prepared, and they spent much time not only on the ceremony, but also in completing the paperwork to ensure that our wedding certificate would be completed and submitted in a timely way.
Leonard & Alessandra
Our officiant met our expectations and the office staff was friendly and helpful. We would refer All Seasons Weddings to others.
Melissa & Byron
Nicola (Wolters) was such a great choice for us and we could not have asked for anything better!! She was very helpful, caring and sweet. We will definitely recommend this company and especially Nicola to anyone we know getting married!

We felt comfortable and at home. The chapel looked beautiful and quaint. With two young granddaughters in attendance, Nicola went above and beyond to occupy them while we did photos. It was lovely. The Ottawa Wedding Chapel staff helpful and supportive. This is a wonderful venue for a wedding. It has character and a peacefulness as well. We would highly recommend.

As your Officiant, Shari is committed to helping you make your wedding ceremony uniquely yours and for it to be memorable for years to come.
Shari Rowan was fantastic! Our young son interrupted our ceremony and she worked with it and everything went well... she also gave very useful suggestions to us to help us tailor the ceremony to our family and style :-)
Tanya & Aaron
We found Shari (Rowan) on this website, read some reviews and her bio, and knew that she was the person we wanted to help us celebrate our special day. Once we confirmed that we had booked Shari, we were excited to start telling her our ideas for the ceremony; quite possibly the least traditional one ever! No rings, no traditional vows, no wedding party, no bouquets, the ceremony to take place at our home surrounded by our family and friends - who would have no idea what was happening until it started! She was so open and receptive, and excited to help us celebrate our day. She made it so easy and effortless, we are so happy, and grateful to her for letting us have the ceremony we wanted!!! We had such an amazing day, our ceremony went so well!! We are forever thankful to Shari for making it a truly unforgettable day.
Patricia and Eric
Our wedding was held on Halloween night, the actual service was a surprise to all our guests in attendance. All our guests were dressed in costume, as well, the bride and groom, Shari Rowan was willing to perform our ceremony in costume as well. It was fantastic, very relaxing and so very much rewarding to have one's relation performing our ceremony. This made our special occasion all the more special. Thank you Shari.
Donna & Thomas
Hi Sherri(Rowan). David and I would like to thank you for making our day memorable. We knew the ceremony would be wonderful as you made us feel very comfortable from our first meeting to the endless e-mails to find the right reading for the ceremony, Everything was beautiful and we had many great comments from our guests about the ceremony and about you!
Angela & David
We were very pleased with Shari Rowan. We had a lovely ceremony and it made our special day memorable
Lisa & Stephen
Dear All Seasons Weddings, We would sincerely like to thank you for providing Shari Rowan as the officiant for our wedding. She is extremely professional, caring and just a lovely person all around. Shari made us very comfortable and performed the ceremony beautifully. I would highly recommend her for anyone that requires an officiant for their wedding ceremony.
Sandy & Doug
We loved being able to customize our ceremony a little to make it feel like us. It was an incredibly emotional experience, but Shari Rowan kept us grounded and focused on each other. We also received nothing but lovely comments from our guests, who were very touched by Shari's words and emotion. One thing that especially resonated with everyone (including my husband and I) was the fact that for our vows, Shari just whispered the words to us, so that all our guests heard was our voices. I think that small touch was perfect, not only for our guests to hear the vows as if they came from us alone, but also because of the way it felt for us saying them only to eachother. I've been to weddings where the couple are almost saying the vows to the officiant because they're nervous, and they want to follow the words and respond to them. We loved how personal it felt, yet we didn't have to worry about memorizing!
Jen & Cary
Shari Rowan was wonderful. She even took the time to run around the neighbourhood to ask people to hold off on mowing their lawns for 20 minutes until the ceremony was over. She of course is a very good looking lady and makes the photos even better. Loved her as much for our wedding as I did for my daughters. Thanks so much Shari!
Diane & Garry
Shari Rowan exceeded our expectations. She did an absolutely wonderful job, very professional. She was always able to offer advice and suggestions, and she was very easy to contact when we had questions. As soon as we began contact with her, we felt very comfortable and confident that our ceremony would be perfect, which it was! We would highly recommend Shari!!
Alanna & Adam
Shari Rowan was such a delight! Her guidance and suggestions for our ceremony was extremely helpful. She made us feel at ease throughout the entire process, and her delivery of our ceremony was perfect! We are very happy with her service.
Holly & Mark
Brian and I were soo happy with the way the Ceremony went and Shari Rowan was AMAZING. We can't thank you guys enough for everything.
Mandey & Brian
Shari Rowan was great.She was very organized and professional and caring. She definitely made us feel like our wedding was important to her. She even wore a coordinating scarf with her suit to tie-in with the wedding party. What a nice touch! Shari was so easy to work with which was a relief when you are planning such an important day. She was very helpful in giving us advice about our ceremony (which we had greatly changed from the template). I would definitely recommend her. She made sure we had everything we needed and was sincere and made a wonderful guide through what could have been a stressful time.
Christine & Brian
Shari Rowan was very helpful and put on a very good service. Every one of our guests really liked how good of a job she did. Would definitely recommend her to everyone... She made our day perfect!

Luc Despatis more than met our expectations - he surpassed them! Luc was great at answering questions when we were looking at putting together our program and creating our own personable ceremony for the big day. He was prompt at getting back to us and a good communicator in letting us know when he would be out of town in case we needed to reach him. We couldn't have put a program together and ran a ceremony as smoothly without him. Luc Issa really helpful and super friendly! Thank you, Luc for officiating our wedding and helping us putting together the ceremony!
Andrew & Tharie
Luc Despatis was fantastic - friendly and organized right from the start! We wanted something a little different for our blended family and Luc was open to all our ideas and provided wonderful suggestions. Whenever Patrick and I talk about the ceremony we always talk about how calming Luc was - he was so professional but laughed with us when it was needed!! We are so happy we chose him because we couldn't imagine having someone else marry us. He was perfectly suited! Thank you Luc, thank you for making sure our incredibly wonderful day got off to such a great start. Merci!!
Josee & Patrick
Nik & I wanted to thank Luc Despatis again for such a great ceremony. We both liked that it was sort of casual, relaxed, and fun which he made happen. Luc is very good at what he does and I will highly recommend him to any of my friends.

Luc Despatis was great! We wanted a bilingual ceremony that honored our mother tongue, Spanish. We were lucky enough to work with Luc on a ceremony that reflected our values and beliefs while incorporating family members as well. Couldn't have asked for more!
Jacqueline & Edwin
Thanks Luc. I just wanted to take a second and just say thank you. I've found the process so far for the ceremony to be very very simple given how helpful you have been. I'm sure you get this a lot, but you're just really making me feel relieved with the preparation, so thank you! If anything else comes up I will let you know, but if not I will see you on Saturday!

As neither of us have been married before we were a little nervous about who to choose to marry us and we wanted our day to be perfect. Brigitte definitely took that bit of nervousness away upon our initial meeting. Brigitte set up a meeting with us to our convenience. She was so open and friendly and we felt as though she was a long time friend and no stranger! The exact feeling you want on your wedding day. She explained every detail and sent us scripts, respecting our interest in regards to ceremony, and was available all along the way. She arrived ahead of time for the ceremony and was dressed professionally. She spoke clear, and loud enough that everyone could here.

Helina & Simon
From the first minute we met with Brigitte Samson, we knew that she would be the perfect officiant to perform our wedding! She was kind, funny, personable and was able to gauge our personalities right away. Through all our meetings she was knowledgeable, patient and understanding of our stress. She took the time to explain each aspect of the ceremony to us, and gave us the option of reading the ceremony before hand, so we knew what to expect. When we decided to write our own vows she gave us some examples and helpful hints to follow. On the day of the wedding she arrived on time, and looked stunning! She read our crowd very quickly, and even when there were young active toddlers running around during the ceremony she was able to focus on the union she was performing, and kept it fun and entertaining for everyone. We could not be happier with our choice, and highly, HIGHLY recommend Brigitte to perform your wedding. Thanks again so much for being a part of the best day of our life!! Shauna & Sean July 2018
Shauna & Sean
Brigitte played a huge role in making our day special and as beautiful as it was! Prior to the wedding, Brigitte created us a beautifully written bilingual ceremony to accommodate both our English and French families and she allowed us to tweak and twist the ceremony as we wished to truly make it our own. Brigitte is very open minded and receptive to demands and recommendations. She was great at keeping us calm and collected the day off and oh so very patient! Brigitte was awesome throughout the planning and execution of our wedding ceremony. Our families loved the ceremony and Brigitte’s tone and effortless ability to switch back and forth from English to French! Brigitte, it was a pleasure having you officiate our wedding! It was everything we wanted it to be! Thank you for doing such an awesome job, for your professionalism and for your transparent passion in what you do! Mr. & Mrs. Akiza. 09/29/2017

What a pleasure to have Brigitte Samson as our officiant on our special day! She helped us with vows and selection of readings and informed us of the order of the ceremony, relieving much work and angst for us.

I was so happy she was our officiant and recommend her highly to anyone getting married. Katherine & Ric July 2018

Brigitte Samson officiated our outdoor wedding in September and we couldn’t be happier with our choice! Given the importance of the ceremony for our wedding day, we wanted an officiant that not only understood the importance of the actual day, but also the preparation leading up to it. Her experience officiating weddings was clear from the start, as she provided clear direction and recommendations to help us in the planning of our ceremony. Brigitte was a consent professional and always available to answer any questions or concerns. She was flexible throughout the process and adapted herself to our special requests and needs. Following our wedding, we have received many positive comments regarding the great bilingual ceremony she conducted. We are truly thrilled with the service provided by Brigitte and would recommend her services to any couple looking for a dynamic, professional and flexible officiant. Once again, many thanks to Brigitte for being part of our very special day, Patrick and Kaitlyn Sept 2017

Brigitte Samson was our wedding officiant and day-of wedding coordinator. We were very happy with her services. She was amazing to work with! Every meeting with her was productive. She calmed us and offered solutions when we felt stressed. As an officiant, she worked with us and offered great suggestions for the ceremony. The wedding script she made for us was perfect! The ceremony was beautiful. Prior to the wedding, she offered lots of good tips to help us stay on track and save money. On the big day, she stayed in touch with us to make sure things we were good. She also worked with all the vendors and took care of many things behind the scene so that we got to enjoy the day and didn't need to worry about the details. We highly recommend her services.

Mike and I are so happy we chose Brigitte (Samson) to be our Officiant. She is so easy going and very professional. She took care of every detail which meant the world to me as a anxious Bride. My worst fear came true when I arrived at my Wedding it started pouring rain. Brigitte had it all taken care of. She had 2 huge umbrellas waiting for us! It was so thoughtful of her, I couldn’t believe it. All of my guests thought the service was beautiful and that she was excellent. My Sister was so impressed she hired her for her Wedding next year. I am so grateful to Brigitte for making our Wedding so special and I am going to recommend her to everyone. Kathi & Mike 07/25/2015
Kathi & Mike
We would recommend Brigitte Samson as your wedding officiant without reservation. We are residents of Ontario, who requested her services in January, for an outdoor ceremony in Quebec in May. Brigitte was incredibly knowledgeable and experienced; she gave us insightful counsel throughout our process, which turned out to be quite challenging. A week before our ceremony, our original destination was closed due to snow. Brigitte helped us pivot. Incredibly, on the day of our ceremony, our second location was closed due to flooding. Brigitte adapted and advised us through all these unforeseen changes; a rudder and guiding light as we navigated our way to a wonderful wedding with warm family memories. Truer words were never spoken! Denis & Barb 05/06/2017
Barb & Denis

Gisele Savard-Lalonde more than exceeded our expectations. From the initial conversations that we had over the phone, to our e-mail correspondence she was extremely helpful and accommodating. Our meeting went extremely well, and she confidently and competently guided us through the rehearsal of the ceremony. We knew after speaking to her on the phone and after meeting her in person, that she was going to be ideal to perform the ceremony for us. Our ceremony was perfect. Her sense of humour and her mannerisms were an ideal match to our own. We were so glad that she could be a part of our wedding weekend and can't say enough about the experience we had. On top of that all of my correspondence with your office was prompt and courteous, and provided all of the necessary information we required.

Hello! We had our wedding on September 12th, 2015 and we wanted to thank All Seasons Weddings and specifically Kathleen Everett for making our day absolutely perfect! Kathleen was such a pleasure to work with. She was warm, supportive, helpful and witty! She made the process clear and easy for us, and performed our ceremony beautifully. We highly recommend using All Seasons and having Kathleen be a part of your big day! Thanks!! Melanie and Trevor
Kathleen Everett was excellent. Even family complimented us on how she was a perfect fit with our celebration. Our ceremony was perfect and it reflected everything about who we are. Kathleen was the perfect officiant who was able to integrate the unique moments our little girls offered to make our ceremony about "us" as family. We couldn't have dreamed of a better ceremony or day to start our "happily ever after".
Kate & Sean

Kathleen was such an important part of our wedding day. Her support throughout the process was valuable and she performed the ceremony beautifully. Her calm and easygoing nature helped create a lovely and serene atmosphere for our small ceremony. We especially appreciated how Kathleen kept things light at the beginning - it helped to calm our nerves a little bit! We cannot thank her enough!
Manisha and Ben
Thanks Kathleen! We are so happy with how the day turned out. Went by all too fast mind you! But thank you very much for officiating the ceremony for us. So many people commented on how warm the wedding felt and they all attributed that to you! We will definitely keep an eye out for the certificate and be sure to let you know when it gets here. I have attached a couple of pictures for you! We will also be sure to add a testimonial to the website! Thanks again, Hi Kathleen- I realize Christina already sent you a thank you note for your excellent work on our wedding day however I want to send one as well! A sincere thank you for your kindness and being so warm and genuine during our marriage ceremony- you guided us every step of the way in preparation leading up to the exchange of vows and we had a comfort level upon first meeting you that you would be perfect to preside over our ceremony. You made a difference on our special day which we will not soon forget. Thank you so much. Married life is great! Ryan
Christina and Ryan
Dear Kathleen Thank you for your support at the renewal of our wedding vows over Easter weekend. All Seasons Weddings did an excellent job and exceeded our expectations. We appreciated your experience, professionalism, positive communication style, good ideas, and support as we personalized our service. You made it easy to incorporate both our children and parents, making it even more special. Your kindness in wearing the video “necklace” provided footage of the event that our family will always treasure. We loved the chapel. It was the ideal venue for 100 family and friends who joined us. Everyone commented on the amazing woodwork, stained glass and natural light. We recommend All Seasons Weddings. Thanks again

How do WE begin to thank you for being such wonderful woman and allowing us the pleasure of your company? We had a wonderful wedding, with all of our thanks going to you. Our day was filled with sunshine, laughter and a lot of love. We are so happy that you accepted our wedding as you brought us even more enjoyment. I have never felt so comfortable as I did with you. You were like the mother figure to me and I could see the joy in your eyes just being there for us. That day will always be special to us, but more so because we made a new friend, with many happy tears shed and the moments will always be preserved in our hearts. Once again, you are a wonderful woman with a heart filled of pure gold. We thank you for your well wishes and of course for taking on a wild bunch of youngens!! Lots of Love, xoxoxo

Our experience was nothing short of wonderful. We are very greatful to Kathleen for making it OUR special day and not just a cookie cutter wedding - We even have guests telling us how much they enjoyed her! Kathleen went above and beyond!
Sarah and Matthew
Thank you so much for making our day so special and run smoothly. You helped ease any stress/nervousness with your calm and soothing words. You made everyone feel welcome and comfortable Our day went off without a hitch, minus Shawna and I getting hitched that is haha. Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts.
Chris and Shawna
Dear Kathleen, Thank you so much for performing our wedding ceremony! Your kind demeanour, attention to detail, and encouragement to create the ceremony we dreamed of, was exactly what we were looking for. The blending of two cultures/religions isn't always easy, but we (and even more importantly, our families) were thrilled with how it turned out! We had the perfect day, thanks for being an important part of it! We hope to see you again soon!
Andrea and Amir
Dear Kathleen, Thank you for being such an important part of our special day! We had no idea there would be so many little details to remember, but you made it all so easy - from all of the advice and guidance leading up to the ceremony, to such practical things like having readings and vows printed out and ready for us. Our wedding ceremony is a memory that we will cherish forever, and you were an integral part of it! Attached is a photo of the ceremony taken by one of our wedding guests - you will see that we are all laughing, which reflects the mood of the day. Thanks again!
Stephanie and Steve
We had a GREAT time despite the heat, and you kept everything short and sweet, just like we wanted. But most importantly, you made me feel comfortable, which was what mattered most to me. Thanks to you, the atmosphere was very relaxed and laid back, and for that we are very grateful. We couldn’t have asked for better service! Feel free to use one of our pics on your web site. And no, we would not hesitate to recommend you to other couples. In fact, we already have! Take care and thanks again!
Tammy and Brett
Our officiant Kathleen Everett was wonderful ! Never having met her due to being out of town we were worried but she was the most wonderful woman ever! She made our day unforgettable and had so many great ideas to make our ceremony one of a kind.

Hi Kathleen I just wanted to thank you again for the beautiful job you did officiating our wedding. It was an amazing night, and you were a huge part in helping to make it so wonderful. Nikki and Corey It was a pleasure dealing with you at this special wedding at the Sens game and the ceremony was beautiful. You did a fabulous job!

Dear Kathleen I cannot tell you how grateful I am that you were the chosen officiant to marry my beautiful daughter Meghan and her partner in life, Melissa. The words that you spoke were full of love, joy, and honesty, sincerity, inclusiveness and so very gentile. You brought many blended families and friends together in a ceremony that was truly intimate. Their wedding day was truly magical, for many reasons and you were able to express and share that emotion with all who were present, as well as with Meghan and Melissa. Your presence and your words made this special day more special than we could have imagined. Thank you from the heart. Kathy (Mother of the Bride) Meghan, Melissa
Meghan and Melissa
Thank YOU so much Kathleen for the beautiful ceremony. We also received many compliments on your behalf. I am not sure how I managed to hold my tears back; I tried to focus on you and Jason only but many others admitted to teary eyes...even some guys!!! We thought that the whole day was perfect :) Over all a stressFREE and fun time when among such wonderful people. The love vibes were very strong indeed. Thank you again for being with us in such a big way on our day! It meant a lot to our family to have you officiate our wedding.
Kim & Jay
Hi Kathleen, Thank you so much for your kind words. Sorry I am a little late getting back to you. Dan and I only just returned from our honeymoon 2 days ago. We had such an incredible time and the wedding was so beautiful. I’m glad our family and friends made you feel so comfortable. You did an excellent job and definitely helped me to feel at ease as well. It was a lovely ceremony and everyone keeps talking about the site and the leaves falling in the background. It was the perfect day for a wedding…that’s for sure…minus the lady bugs and bees. Haha But to be honest, I think it made the ceremony more “us” with all the little laughs, giggles and quirks. Dan forgot to take your advice about not forcing my ring tho. Haha But again…it caused laughter which I think we needed in that moment. You did a great job and were so well spoken. Thank you so much for everything you did for us. Dan and I so appreciate it and won’t ever forget it. We will certainly recommend you to our friends and family members for their future weddings. Thank you again Kathleen for everything and for your best wishes. We’re so happy. Take care and please keep in touch.
Dan and Jillian
Kathleen (Everett) was an excellent officiant and I would recommend her to anyone. She was professional and efficient, and also friendly and kind in walking us through the process. She made some great suggestions for our ceremony. She was well spoken and clear and we received many compliments on our ceremony. I felt in very good hands and had nothing to worry about leading up to our wedding ceremony!! Thank you so much for everything Kathleen!
Heather & Brady
Hi Kathleen, Apologies for my delay - it has been amazingly a very busy month. I really want to thank you for the time you took with us, initially in getting our ceremony together, as well as the day of. You read such a beautiful ceremony and had such a calming presence for me. I know Andrew also really enjoyed having you there, and so many friends and family have spoken so highly of the ceremony you gave and the humour you put throughout the ceremony. Thank you so much for sharing such a special moment with Andrew and I.
Gabrielle and Andrew
What can we say about you? You were phenomenal, outstanding...words fail. We were so impressed at how you helped the boys unpuzzle the whole attaching the boutonniere issue, to helping our photographer out by getting people to look at the camera, and the ceremony was beautiful, you were lots of fun and we had some good laughs. Wedding days should be fun because it is the beginning of getting to really learn to laugh at life. Kathleen Everett , Kevin and I want to thank you, we loved our wedding day and you being a part of that day made it even better.
Earlana and Kevin
Thank you so much for all of your help with our wedding this past June. Kathleen was amazing! She helped us get everything ready at the rehearsal and she helped keep my husband relaxed during the ceremony even though he was really nervous. I would highly recommend both this service and Kathleen to anyone who is getting married. Everything regarding booking and payment was so easy. Zero complaints. Thank you so much for helping make our special day perfect.
Coreen & Matthew
Dear Kathleen, We cannot put into words the special role that you played in our fairy tale wedding. Many of our guests thought you were part of the wedding guests And you truly fit into our family and friends. You made the ceremony feel like a natural event and neither Len or I were nervous with your calming effect. We hope to be able to cross paths again and will highly recommend you so that we can meet again. Thank you once again, Two very happy people...Betty and Len
Betty and Len
Kathleen went above and beyond. We had quite a huge setback when our first officiant cancelled three weeks before our wedding. My fiancee called, understandably crying, and Kathleen answered. She calmed her down and offered to meet us the very next day. We met her and she went over the entire process, which we wouldn't have been provided with our original officiant. She took over our wedding was wonderful and we don't know what we would have done if she hadn't been so accommodating. She calmed our nerves and let us focus on the wedding, not on who would marry us. We also received plenty of nice comments about her after the wedding. She was charming and super helpful throughout the entire process.
Brandon and Taylor

An elegant alternative to a Ottawa City Hall wedding ceremony. Rent our historic country chapel for your wedding ceremony! A storybook setting of country charm and sophisticated elegance.
Brian Ballinger was very friendly, professional, and great to work with. He did an absolutely wonderful job providing a ceremony in both English and Spanish. We had many compliments on the ceremony and how warm Brian made it feel. We would certainly recommend him to our family and friends for their special event. Thank you very much Brian!

Barbara DeJeet exceeded our expectations. Barbara was amazing supportive and made us feel like she truely cared.
Tara-Lynn and David
Shelia Wallace was very thoughtful kind and wonderful. With luck we won't need to be married again but definitely would refer her to anyone getting married!
Michelle and Andrew
Annie Plouffe was very efficient, caring and responsive to our needs. She came up with some great ideas and incorporated our wishes to include my kids in the ceremony in a great way. Annie was AMAZING. She responded within minutes each time we had questions. Went above and beyond on the ceremony prep and gave us some great insight on tweaks to the ceremony. She even had a suggestion to place wedding ring on pinky if it is tight and due to heat and stress that was necessary and made for a funny moment during the ceremony. VERY happy with Annie from beginning to end!
Michael and Myriam
We felt comfortable and at home. The chapel looked beautiful and quaint. We two young granddaughters in attendance, Nicola went above and beyond to occupy them while we did photos. It was lovely. This is a wonderful venue for a wedding. It has character and a peacefulness as well. We would highly recommend. Mary and William, Aug 10, 2017

Luc Despatis was amazing. He made us feel so comfortable, he smiled with us. I felt like he was one of our family members. He helped the groom calmed down before the bride arrived. Our ceremony was beautiful.We would like to thank All Seasons Weddings and especially Luc Despatis. We would recommend him with no hesitation.
