Her professionalism on the wedding day was exceptional. Her attire was perfected and she had all the information well organized in her black book ? Luckily for us she was very flexible with the ceremony time since we were running 30 minutes late. I had full intentions of starting after a 10 minute wait to respect her time commitment, but she assured the best man that we could wait for my brother to arrive to walk me down the aisle. Thank you!

Nancy & Gary
Dawn Brown was a fantastic officiant. She is extremely organized and helpful with all of the "other things" like when to get the marriage license, what to do with paperwork afterwards, and how to start a name change if you want to do it. We went with a pretty standard ceremony but she helped us to customize it for our tastes. When we first met Dawn we realized within a few minutes that she was the right woman to marry us. She speaks so highly of love and commitment and the importance of the vows that you make reflecting what you will live for the rest of your life. At the end of the first session I just wanted to give her a big hug! The day of she was completely on-point too. You can tell she really loves doing what she does and puts her whole heart into the ceremony. All of our guests were commenting on how well she officiated and made it a meaningful and fun ceremony for everyone involved. We will be highly recommending Dawn and All Seasons to friends who are getting married in the future. Your service from start to finish was fantastic!
Michelle & Marc
Dawn Brown was amazing! She put us at ease at our meeting and walked us through every step so we were ready for our day. During the ceremony she toughed through some cold winds for our outdoor wedding(in February) and helped make for such a memorable day. She was extremely professional, open to changes to the ceremony, and an absolute delight to work with. We received many compliments from our guests about how wonderful she was and will definitely recommend her to anyone getting married down the line. All the best to Dawn and thank you so much in making our wedding a success!

Mélodie and David
Hi Natasha "THANK YOU for such a wonderful wedding ceremony on 07/13/2013! We LOVED every second and owe that to you. Absolutely everyone told us they enjoyed it too, and many say they have never been to a wedding that was so personal, intimate or as full of love as ours. If ever we decide to renew our vows we know who to call. Merci Natasha! Tu nous as aidés à réaliser notre rêve.

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. We are very happy and lucky to have found an officiant as personable, cheerful, professional and charismatic as you! We could not have chosen a better officiant than you to marry us! 02/18/2012

Robin & Daniel
Natasha (St-Jean) did a great job on our wedding day! She met with us and gave us the opportunity to really have the ceremony the way we pictured it. She helped us have a bilingual (French and English) and kept the ceremony light and fun. We couldn't have asked for better. Thanks again, Manon and Shawn
Manon and Shawn
On the day of the wedding, we were running a little late because of bad weather, and the staff at the Ottawa Wedding Chapel were so kind and accommodating. Our officiant, Natasha, seemed every bit as happy and excited as we were. Everyone was so genuinely supportive and joyful, it truly made us feel cared for and celebrated. There were absolutely no issues with pronouns despite several people being transgender in my wedding party and guests, and not even a hiccup over using my husband's preferred name and pronouns in the ceremony and on the non-legal part of the marriage license. The level of care and service we got on our special day was what truly made it special. Natasha even hugged us at the end, and teared up during the ceremony! Her love for what she does was beautiful! Thank you so much for everything, you made our day perfect! It wouldn't have been the same if we had gone anywhere else. I'll always treasure this memory and the amazing ceremony you created for us! I can't thank everyone involved enough. Alyssa & Donald Feb 15th,2017
Alyssa & Donald
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. You were so easy going and ready to do anything we wanted. The guests very much appreciated the bilingual ceremony. You made aspects of the ceremony shine with your awesome comments too. Thank you so much for being a part of our 07/01/2012 wedding day. We will remember you forever and know you will make other brides and grooms very happy.
Teena & Martin
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
Your company and Natasha were fantastic. Professional and accommodating. The wedding was planned very quickly do to unavoidable circumstances and All Seasons made everything easier.

Natasha St. Jean was friendly and professional. She was on time (early actually!), well prepared, and easy going. I had a lot of questions for the reservations team and had several changes to our plans, and Debbie was very accommodating and responded to my emails very quickly. The whole experience was very easy to set up and was exactly what we wanted and needed for our big day. Using All Seasons Weddings was a really good experience, I would definitely recommend to anyone.
Jillian & Shawn
Natasha went above and beyond our expectations!!!! She even helped me edit my vows! Even though we needed to book a new officiant about a month before our wedding, All Seasons assisted very well and the change was absolutely seamless. Natasha offered suggestions and was very supportive when it came to what we were looking for! It was an absolute pleasure :) Thank you! Andrew and Sarah Feb 21st, 2015 at the RA Centre, Ottawa, ON

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

You matched our personalities perfectly and we couldn’t ask for anything better! Merci! Eric & Sabrina ‘’The newlyweds’’ Nov 10th, 2016
Hi Natasha, Thank you so much for the fantastic job you did for (and with) us on Monday. The ceremony went off beautifully, and we have heard so many amazing comments from people. They loved the ceremony as a whole, individual bits and pieces, the light hearted aspects of it. But we have also heard great comments about you, and the job you did. You managed to guide us (and our audience) through a ceremony that spoke to their hearts, and to who we are as people. Thank you so much for being willing to try this ceremony style, and working with our sense of humour. Thank you seems so inadequate for the role you played in our big day, but it will have to do.

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 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
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!

Hi Sue (kellison),Thank you so much for officiating our wedding. You did a marvelous job, and we received so many compliments on your behalf.We are sorry we did not have a chance to see you after the ceremony. We were whisked off in the other direction.Thank you for the information on obtaining the official marriage certificate. Once again, thank you SO much.
Jon and Kathryn
Hello Sue Kellison, A very close friend of mine complimented on the wonderful job you did for us. Much of her compliments were of our wording, how expressive you were and how genuine the whole ceremony was. Lorie and I wrote our vows to each other. It was truly something to hear and say our vows. I remember during our meeting with you, you mentioned for us to look at each other and not you. Our emotions took over quite unexpectedly. Those tears of happiness and such deep emotion were extremely powerful. ...Thank you so very much for guiding us.We truly are grateful. It was the best day of our life.Thank You for Sharing Our Day.
Lorie and Rozanna
Sue (Kellison) officiated at our wedding on Saturday, 2 July 2016 at The Courtyard Restaurant. Sue was professional, warm, welcoming and reassuring to both Michael and myself. She communicated clearly before the wedding and it felt like we had known her for years. She clearly explained the procedures and format of the ceremony and during the ceremony, when we both became emotional, Sue reassured us and allowed us time to compose ourselves, she even provided tissue. The most amazing thing about Sue is the way she read the ceremony that we had written. She read it as if it was her own ceremony, with passion, emotion, and beauty. We had a Lord of the Rings Themed ceremony and Sue had to read names of different realms of Middle Earth as well as declare, "Bring forth the rings." She did this with great enthusiasm and created an environment of intimacy, making Mike and I feel as if we were the only ones in the room, but still making our guests feel a part of the ceremony. Many guests complemented us on choosing Sue and asked if she was a friend of ours. We explained that we had met her only once before the ceremony and they were shocked because of the way she made it seem as if our wedding was the most important wedding in the world. Thank you, Sue, for being a part of our wedding and for making it such a beautiful and comfortable ceremony!
Brian and Michael
Sue Kellison was so professional and relaxed, and instantly put our minds at ease. She was incredibly organized, and was very compassionate and gracious. We were very lucky to have her as our officiant as she made our special day even more special.
Laurie & Taylor
Susan Kellison surpassed any of our possible expectations. My brother had had a city hall wedding, and his ceremony was fairly abrupt and unceremonious. Too much legalese. Susan’s ceremony was unexpectedly touching. We called with a last minute request, and Natasha was able to find us an Officiant with only a day’s notice. If any of our friends need such a service, I will obviously pass on heaps of praise for you guys. Thanks.
Erik & Emma
Sue Kellison did a wonderful job on our wedding day and we would definitely recommend her to all our friends and family. She was very well organized and extremely helpful in preparing us for our wedding day. She has a wonderful personality and is very kind and caring. Everyone at our wedding thought our ceremony was very memorable and special and we could not have done it without Sue. She really helped guide us throughout our ceremony and did an amazing job.
Tony and Anabela
Sue Kellison is a very warmhearted person, and she lent a wonderful aspect to our special day. Thank you all for your help to make what could have been a very harrying day, with us both being from out of town, turn into something lovely. Sincerely,

Luc Despatis more than met our expectations - he surpassed them!

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!!

Hi Julie, Thank you so much for everything this past weekend! The ceremony was so beautiful, I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Tons of the guests mentioned how lovely the ceremony was, and they all adored that there was so much emotion and love in both the words and the delivery of the ceremony. You did an amazing job! I feel so blessed to have met you. You are such a wonderful and loving person and I am so glad it was you up there with us on our special day. You brought calm and peace to my mind when I didn’t think it was possible. The ceremony truly was a dream come true and was definitely my favourite part of the wedding. Thank you for being you. We will be in touch soon. Best wishes,

Hannah & Michael
Julie Desrosiers really worked hard to make sure our wedding ceremony was exactly how we wanted it. She had a perfect mix of funny and touching in her script. She was an excellent speaker and helped to assure us both before and during the ceremony that it would go exactly how we wanted it to. I couldn't be happier with our choice in Julie as an officiant. Even our guests commented on how well she ran the ceremony. The Office staff made it very easy to keep track of all of the booking and payments we had to make, which is a life-saver when you have 100 other things to worry about. I give Julie Desrosiers my highest recommendation.
Virginia & Lynn
Julie Desrosiers was Amazing!!! She went above and beyond to make our ceremony special and beautiful. She really understood what was important to us and took the time to come to the wedding site to meet with us and get to know a little about eachother ! She was great at corresponding with all my email and questions and I couldn't be happier with her patience and dedication to making our day perfect and the process a calm one. Everyone was great at responding and all the information was very clear always. The service you provide is outstanding and the ability to make your ceremony the way you like it is the absolute best part. Julie was outstanding ! Truly loves doing this and we loved our experience with her!

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. 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
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

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".

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!

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Al Micus B.A., M.Ed. (Counselling) one of our most experienced wedding officiants is a retired secondary school teacher whose wedding services are limited to Greely, Manotick, Metcalfe and North Gower. He is a graduate of Western and Ottawa U. Alan is "Mr Positive". He is an upbeat cheery guy who lives to help others. He is a caring individual who will make your day the special day it deserves to be. Unfortunately Al is not available on Sundays and must decline outdoor wedding ceremonies from November to May.
AL MICUS WAS AMAZING! So friendly and helpful. Went completely out of his way to make sure our day was perfect. Such a kind and thoughtful man. Would recommend him in a heartbeat!!!
Amy & Robert
We wanted to send a message to let you know that we were so pleased with having Al Micus as the officiant for our wedding. We appreciated his professionalism and he helped to make the ceremony one that was totally our own. He was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend his services to anyone wanting a relaxed and personal ceremony.
Karen & Paul
Al Micus was fantastic and provided exactly what we were hoping for - a relaxed and casual wedding ceremony with a bit of humour. He was a pleasure to deal with through all the planning, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant in the future. We were very impressed with him.
Laura & Corey
Mr Micus was always friendly and flexible. He was also really helpful for our ceremony planning. He provided us with a wide variety of wording choices for different kinds of weddings and we were able to mix and match to make a great program that fits our style perfectly. On the day of the wedding, his nicely printed out program with all our readings minimized our stress. We will definitely recommend Mr Micus to people who are looking for an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere for their wedding ceremony.
Stephanie & Erik
Thank you so much for everything. Al Micus was warm, friendly and professional. We had many comments on how nice our ceremony and officiant were. We would definitely recommend both Al Micus and All seasons weddings to anyone.
Jennifer & Curtis
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.

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.
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
Dear Diane, from the day I recognized your name and photo on this website, it seemed that it was a sign that you were meant to be our officiant. You taught me in high school! Chris and I wanted to thank you for the beautiful ceremony (conducted in French) you helped us create. From the day we first spoke on the phone, you were able to put our mind at ease that there was nothing to be nervous about and that you would guide us throughout the process. You did just that! Despite the technical difficulties with the music which delayed the ceremony a bit, our guests commented about how you managed the situation with grace, calmness and humour, making everyone feel at ease, and some not even noticing that there were issues at all. I am sure that should any of our guests decide to tie the knot someday, they will ask us for your contact info. Merci encore!
Isabelle and Chris
I just want to say that Hal Wagar was so considerate. Not only for us but for our families also. It was such a pleasure having him with us on our day. It was like bing married by your favorite uncle. Thanks for Hal and your team for making our day one that will forever be percect in our memories.
Dianne and Kendrick
Janelle Shortt was amazing. Everything went excellently. Highly recommend to everyone. Thank you. Made planning a wedding in less than 3 weeks so much easier!
Kristina and Shawn
We appreciated everything so much. When we re-new our vows, you're our first, and only choice for a leader in the service.
Brandon and Katie
We would like to express our sincere appreciation for the professional and accommodating manner in which Mike O'Callaghan conducted the ceremony for the Young-Whittle marriage. We all agreed we could not have made a better choice. Once again our entire small group was completely impressed with Mike's performance.
