Al Micus was terrific. He was very helpful in providing options on the ceromony script and walking us through the proceedings in advance. Also, his presence at the ceromony was very professional with just the right amount of levity.

Neil and Kam
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. Joan's character, charisma and cadence came through with every word she spoke and we will cherish the ceremony she created for us for the rest of our lives. Thank you for providing such a great service! xo
Lauren & Seth
Joan Bruce-Nibogie was excellent. Above what I expected. Excellent service from the staff to the officiant. I expected high level of service and was pleasant that the service and officiant surpassed my expectations. Thank you for the great service and surpassing my expectations. It was a great day and the guest enjoyed themselves.
Alex & Brittany
Joan Bruce-Nibogie exceeded our expectations. She managed to customize the ceremony to reflect us perfectly. The office staff were very responsive. We cannot thank Joan enough. She made our day even more than we could have hoped. We will never forget it.
Shannon & Jason
We were very blessed to find Joan Bruce-Nibogie. From our first conversation on the telephone, to our few face-to-face meetings, she was fantastic. She went beyond our expectations in preparation of our wedding day as well as on the day of. 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. Our Angels were definitely looking our for us when sending her our way!
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
Hi Joan, Eric and I just wanted to let you know how much we loved our wedding ceremony and how much we appreciate everything! You were so calming and made me feel so at ease with everything. We got so many compliments about the ceremony and about how great you were. i was told several times that it was the best ceremony and the best officiant ever. One person asked me if we knew you beforehand! We could not have asked for a better wedding officiant. Thank you so much for everything. We are grateful to have found you!
Melissa and Eric
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

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.

Danielle and Greg
Dear Natasha (St-Jean), Sylvain and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for having turned this special day into the best day of our lives. As soon as we met you, we knew you were the officiant for us and that our wedding would be a memorable event in your hands. From the first instant, you showed us that you really wanted to give us the ceremony of our dreams meaning, special, personal, elegant and definitely unique since it was outdoors, in the winter on a beautiful mild and sunny day! You really helped us in personalizing our ceremony while perfectly incorporating both French and English which was important to us.

Manon and Shawn
Natasha St. Jean - you are amazing!! Any questions I had, you had all the answers and put my mind at ease. On the day that we met it felt like I had known you for years.

Hello Natasha! We wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did at our wedding on 09/06/2013. We just wish we could have had more time to spend with you at the wedding. The ceremony was beautiful and went down without a hitch. You are a wonderful blend of professional and personal/casual. We will definitely recommend you when we get the chance. Thank you again.
Brigitte and Devin
I wanted to let you know that Natasha (St-Jean) was absolutely amazing. She was everything and more! She forgave my pre wedding forgetfulness with the planning meeting and fell in great with our cucko and crazy gang. lol She really understood the importance of having a bilingual ceremony in order to include our family and friends and her suggestion for the sand ceremony was greatly appreciated and was exactly what we needed to make the wedding "US". Our son really loved this idea as well. She made him a part of our day so we could enjoy everything just the way we wanted it, as a family. I have recommended her services and that of your company and will keep doing so! Thank you Natasha for all that you did for us!
Rennee and Pierre

Using All Seasons Weddings was a really good experience, I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Hi Natasha, Tyler and I wanted to take the time to properly thank you for all the hard work you did before, during and I'm sure after our wedding day. You played such a pivotal role in making this day special, you went above and beyond what we felt an officiant should do, all so that we would feel comfortable and happy. We want to thank you for always being there either by phone, email or in person to chat and to answer our questions and not once did you ever make us feel rushed and we certainly appreciated your positive and charismatic attitude and personality. I remember the first meeting we had with you and you reflected that the wedding day was our day. Well we could see that you live by that motto; your flexibility, acceptance, support, care and attention to detail allowed our wedding ceremony to not only be memorable but be personal and unique to us and our family. We want to thank you for your guidance throughout the entire process. We will continue to recommend you to all our friends and family. Take care and all the best, Antoine and Tyler 07/30/2015

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.

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
John, Darlene, Grace & Evan
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

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.

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!

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!

Nikki and Corey
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
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
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

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.

Mandey & Brian
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.

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
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!

Ann is a resident of Osgoode. She is fluently bilingual in English and French, and as a Bonacci, she also has a sprinkle of Italian. When Ann is not conducting wedding ceremonies or spending time with her family, she gives back to her community as treasurer for a non-profit group which supports aid to grandmothers in Africa. Ann’s warm energy will put you at ease, and her goal is to make your ceremony memorable. She has a deep respect for other cultures and faiths. Ann is licenced in Ontario and Quebec, and she would be honoured to work with you both to conduct a memorable inter-faith wedding ceremony or a spiritual wedding ceremony of your choosing.
Requesting Ann Bonacci to be the officiant for our wedding was the easiest decision we made during the wedding planning process. She is positive, organized and was insistent that we create a ceremony together that painted a picture of who my husband I are within the union of our marriage. She happily received our many corrections and revisions while offering suggestions and support throughout the creation of our ceremony. An important suggestion which we absolutely agreed with was to request that friends or family members be the ones to perform the readings. We asked two family members who we knew would be comfortable in front of the crowd and who we, more importantly, wanted to be a part of uniting us through our selected readings. On the day of she was flawless, her ability to recite our final script was natural and without a hitch, before we knew it we were sealing it with a kiss and off to dance the night away. I highly recommend Ann’s services as an officiant, she is an amazing woman and will be dedicated fully to you, your fiancé and your special day.
Jenna & Jordan
Hi Ann Thank you so much for yesterday! Our family said that they really loved the ceremony and that you did a great job! Thanks again!
Melanie and Jonathan
Thank you so very much Ann, for officiating our wedding. I don't think we could have picked a better suited person. Who knows we may run into each other at other functions; the odds are pretty good I would say. Thank you
Lise & Tony
Ann Bonacci was fantastic! We would highly recommend her. She was very accommodating and helpful. She helped make our special day memorable!
Carolyn & Allan
Just a note to say dealing with your services was a wonderful experience. You answered all our questions and made us feel like whatever we wanted you would try and make it the best wedding ever! Ann Bonacci is a wonderful lady - I can't tell you in words how pleased we where with her. At our meeting befor the wedding she was wonderful accommodating and so helpful and by the time we left her we just knew all would go well. She made us fell like she was a real friend. Thank you for every thing, especially Ann. It was a great experience dealing with All Seasons.

Larry Lepack was simply amazing to work with, from the phone calls months before our wedding, to our pre wedding meeting in person, and of course on our wedding day, he was truly fantastic and helped make our day a perfect one! Larry had many suggestions that we would have not thought of on our own. Sara and I cannot thank him enough! I would highly recommend Mr. Lepack.
Jason and Sara
I just wanted to say thanks again to Colleen Kenny for being our wedding officiant. With all the issues we had before the day of our wedding we were very appreciative that you were so calm, walked us through what we could do, and then came back out to complete the ceremony. We can't thank you enough and will definitely pass your name along to others.
Wilda and Gary
We were not sure what to expect but Jocelyn Daoust made the process easy, she is really easy to talk to , she made us feel more at ease by being light and laughing with us. Even the guests thought she was cool. She was very courteous and easy to work with. Thank you Jocelyne. We would absolutely recomment All Seasons Weddings.
Charles and Lynn
Hi Pamela, I hope this email finds you well :) Jesse and I have just returned from our honeymoon and I wanted to thank you so very much for being such an integral part of our day. You were absolutely fantastic throughout the planning process and at the ceremony as well. You exuded a sense of calm and Peace and Jesse and I are so happy that we were able to have you as our officiant. The ceremony was perfect and our guests kept commenting at how beautiful it was (it was the first "non-religious" ceremony for many so were we so happy they enjoyed it!). Thanks so much again for being a part of our day :) All the best, Misty and Jesse
Misty and Jesse
Marlene Thake was great! Thank you so much for being apart of our day. We felt a personal connection with her, which made the Ceremony that much memorable.
