Alan Steed was my grade 6 teacher and it was a blessing to find him on the website! Although it's been 20 years since I've been in his class, there is nothing about him that has changed - Alan is one of the warmest, kindest, and funniest person you'll meet. He always goes above and beyond to make sure you're happy and taken care of, and on the wedding day, it was no different! Alan was incredibly patient as he walked us through the ceremony and was extremely flexible to accommodate anything that we wanted to include as part of the ceremony. He has the ability to calm your nerves and is super responsive with any questions or concerns you may have. Having Alan as part of the wedding was a highlight in our ceremony - we couldn't have asked for anyone better. Thank you!

Alan Steed was a perfect match for us. He was professional and had a positive attitude. He was comforting and had met every need we wanted in our ceromony. I would most definitely refer Alan to others. Thank you Alan and All Seasons for making our wedding more special.
Barbara & Mark
Alan Steed was wonderful throughout. He went above and beyond to meet with us, talk through things on the telephone, and made sure everything was just how we wanted it. Alan was quick in response to any emails/questions that we had. Couldn't have asked for more! Anytime I called any of the staff they were helpful and friendly. Thank you for making this portion of the wedding so smooth and effortless. And thank you, Alan, for being a kind and calm soul to guide us in this next step of our lives.

Alan Steed was a spectacular officiant. He was flexible, understanding, compassionate, motivated, helpful, friendly and thoroughly reassuring. He was completely committed to helping us have the wedding of our dreams, including sticking with us as our first venue/ceremony was unexpectedly changed (resulting in a lengthy drive for Alan in order to make it to our second venue). He was very responsive and motivated us without being pushy or insistent. He was accommodating of our schedule and needs, as we were planning a wedding from the US, and met us at a time that was convenient for us. He was exceptional in our planning meeting, offering advice and feedback but ultimately sitting back and letting us plan our wedding as we liked. He was understanding about our last minute changes and flexible right up until the wedding began! All our friends said that our service was the best they'd ever seen, and we owe Alan a great deal for that!

Alan Steed was hired as our officiant, and quickly became a friend. Not only did he walk us through the entire process of the marriage ceremony, but he fulfilled his duties with excitement, enthusiasm, and sincerity. We received multiple compliments about the beautiful service Alan performed. We will continue to to recommend him to any and all parties that are getting married!

Alan Steed did a fantastic job! He was warm, genuine and funny and it was truly a ceremony that reflected both our personalities. Alan listened attentively during our meeting before the big day and made sure that we were comfortable with every word that was said during the ceremony. He was a total pro and made the day so special for us.

I just wanted to let you know what a Fabulous time we had with our officiant Alan Steed. Alan personalized the ceremony to suit us. Including our out of the way location, our vows and just being a part of our day. He kept us on track and was a huge part of our special day. I loved his enthusiasm and genuine interest in what we were doing. I would highly recommend his services to anyone ! Thank you! Lynn and Mark September 12, 2015

Alan Steed went above and beyond expectations for our ceremony. It was an absolute pleasure to have him involved. It was as if he was a part of our family! He completely clicked with the colourful vows and understood humour was a huge part of our families. We had a lot of fun with him and just adored his flair and joie de vivre. He was happy to ad lib when our ring warming was lagging behind and was just the best!!! It was great that we were able to depend on such a company as we live in Montreal, and were coming down to Ontario for our wedding. Thank you! The ceremony was a highlight of the day, everyone was commenting on how well it went and how fun it was!
Vanessa & Shawn
From the moment we met Alan (Steed) we were reassured in the midst of all our wedding planning- we did not need to worry about our wedding ceremony on the big day. Alan is very organized, attentive to needs of others and a fabulous, relaxed man to chat with. All of our friends and family commented on how wonderful he was! I would recommend Alan as an officiant to anyone looking to be sure their day runs smoothly and without worries! Katie & Tyler Sept 10th, 2016

Well what can we say!! We are celebrating our eight month wedding anniversary today and have nothing but great memories of our beautiful ceremony. Alan (Steed) was such a pleasure to work with, from the first phone call, to the meeting at Tim Horton's where we customized the ceremony and of course our wedding day. He was easy to talk to and made us both feel comfortable with the process. We are so thankful he was able to incorporate everything we wanted in the ceremony, and also a great photographer. Very grateful for Alan and could not think of a better way to begin our married life together. Thank you for everything Alan! Ken and Dawn

We were not sure where we wanted our ceremony to take place and we asked Melissa Warner for suggestions on the area she found perfect spot. She drove us there to show us the location and we quickly agreed. Melissa stood through our ceremony not once but twice due to weather and made it feel special for us with her upbeat personality and professionalism. Not only did Melissa marry us and give us a wonderful memory but she has become a dear friend.Thank you so much All Seasons Weddings and Melissa Warner for making our dreams come true!!

Olga Salgado exceeded our expectations by far. Despite just meeting us for the first time a few weeks before the wedding, she was able to relate many incidents deom our encounter, and her impressions of the way we related to each other, to personalize the ceremony in a manner that was very touching. She is a wonderful officiant. Everything was handled very efficiently and everyone was very helpful. Thanks to everyone for making this special day happen, and especially to Olga for being such an inspirational, warm individual. We chose her because of her ability to officiate in Spanish, as we wanted a bilingual ceremony, and were pleasantly surprised to see that she was such a wonderful person. We could not have hoped for a better officiant.
Marc and Ernesto
Choosing the right wedding officiant was very important to us not only because we wanted to find someone who was completely comfortable officiating a same-sex union, but also because we were planning a wedding from 3000 miles away and across an international border, and because we wanted to find someone who could integrate our unique cultural and spiritual beliefs into our ceremony. Melissa Warner was the perfect officiant! She took the time to get to know us personally. We recommend Melissa as an exceptional offician and we couldn't have asked for anyone better!
Lisa and Kuo
Michael Skaljin was amazing! All of our guest's spoke very highly of him and the ceremony he delivered. Michael was a huge part of making our day special and he did a great job! THANK YOU so much....
Nino and Peter
Kim Adeney was an exceptional officiant!! We received (and are still receiving!) many compliments from our guests on her role in our wedding, and many people thought we had known her for years!! She made the whole process very easy and stress free for us (especially since we were planning our wedding from afar). We also appreciate that she took the time to meet with us a month before our wedding in person to go over the plans for our ceremony. Overall, we were so thrilled with having Kim as our officiant. She was so kind, warm, and thoughtful; she really helped make our big day very memorable!! Thank you Kim!!
Leslie and Natalie
We wanted to extend our sincere thanks to you for contributing to such an amazing day for us. Your background and expertise made everything perfect. We absolutely loved every minute of the day and have you to thank for it. Everyone keeps saying what an amazing ceremony it was and one of the most beautiful they have been to. We couldn’t agree more.
Greg and Sean
'Hi Melissa, we both want to thank you so much for helping us have the best day ever. It was truly a pleasure having you marry us. I have recommended you to lots of coworkers. Your energy and enthusiasm truly helped make the moment special. '
Sheila and Christine
