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!

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.

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.

My husband and I would like to thank Brigitte for being part of our special day as our wedding officiant. I fully recommend her, with only positive input on her services. 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. Everyone indicated that our ceremony was the most beautiful they've seen thus far. And Brigitte, you played a big part in realizing that for us.Thanks so much from us both and our family and friends! We highly recommend you! Vanessa and Raymond Vanderpoel. Sept 2017

Thank you so much Brigitte Samson for being our officiant, you are amazing! Brigitte is very friendly and flexible as we wrote our own vows and changed some words in the ceremony.

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. More than one guest told me they were so impressed with the both the words Brigitte used in the ceremony as well as her calm, pleasant voice. I was so happy she was our officiant and recommend her highly to anyone getting married. Katherine & Ric July 2018
Katherine & Ric
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. Thank you for making our big day possible! Huong & Cat May 20, 2017

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
Brigitte Samson is extremely professional and very personable. We immediately felt comfortable with her at our first meeting. Our ceremony was a fantastic success and everyone thought it was beautiful. We would be happy to recommend Brigitte to any friend or family member. Trish & Chris 10/15/2015

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!

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!!

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.

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. 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!

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.
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
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 rehersal and she helped keep my husband relaxed during the ceremony even though he was really nervous. I would highly recomend 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 and Matthew

Married, with four children, Gisele is a very caring and down-to-earth person. The following quotation sums up how this wedding officiant thinks: "After years of study, I needed to go back to the basics of life for balance, these being LOVE AND BEAUTY. It would be my privilege to officiate at your wedding day of LOVE in BEAUTY".
Gisele Savard-Lalonde was excellent through out the whole process. She was knowlegable and easy to talk to. She made sure that everything I wanted for my day happened. She was excellent. I was extremely happy with the service Gisele provided.
Cathryn & Jared
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.

I can't really put into words how much Joan Bruce-Nibogie means to us - she made our special day and ceremony one that we will always cherish. From the first moment we met Joan, we knew she was the right fit. We felt like we had known her for years even though we had just met her.

Thanks both to Joan and All Seasons for exceeding our expectations in every way.

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.

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.

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
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.

Christine Villeneuve was very helpful at providing us samples of previous bilingual ceremony text, and was very flexible with our requirements. We felt comfortable working with her to make our wedding day extra special. Christine made us feel at ease. She gave us a lot more useful information then we ever expected, which was highly appreciated. She knew very well the location of our wedding, explained in details the flow of our wedding ceremony, giving us the options we have based on our location. She even draw a little venue plan to explain the details to us. The information was awesome! She was a real Pro!!! Christine was amazing, the service was easily accessible and thorough. Christine was cordial, friendly and thoughtful of every detail. She was a joy to work with. I would recommend her to anyone!

Joyce Muir did an amazing job and made the ceremony fit us perfectly!
