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.
Ashley & Clayton
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!

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.

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
Ken and Dawn
Jason and I just want to express our Thanks to Alan Steed for making our wedding day extra special. With the chaos of the kids not wanting to walk down the aisle and my daughter in law performing temper tantrums. I was a little upset. But as I got to the front and being reassured from both Jason and Alan, I calmed down. It was a great ceremony and all the guests complimented. Jay will have no excuse to forget the anniversary since its also your anniversary. We are honored you were available to officiate our day. Really appreciate all the help with including the kids in our ceremony. Thank you again for sharing our special day! Heather and Jason

Alan (Steed) was fantastic! He made us feel so comfortable as we are both shy people. He had some wonderful ideas and was open and flexible to questions and feedback that we had. And on top of everything is accent is adorable! Lol ;)

Thank you, Michelle Hrynyk , for performing our ceremony with just the right amount of both fun and class! Your grace and charm complemented our handfasting perfectly, and the way you included our daughter helped make our family become whole. We had nothing but good to hear from our guests about your officiating, and we've had a number of friends demand your name and number! This was certainly the best day of our lives, made simply perfect by your professional efforts and wonderful attitude! We can never thank you enough!
Sean and Alexandra
THANK YOU!!! Derek and I want to thank you so much for the magic you spun on our special day. You both respected my spirituality and Derek's very different one - helping us find that balance that made the ceremony uniquely our own. Thank you for letting us write everything from the vows to the content. Your input was a perfect blend of tweaking and editing without you imposing your view like so many others tried. Your vow worship really was the best money we spent - Derek's vows still move me to the core when I see the video and vice versa. We will recommend it to all our friends. The hand fasting was wonderful - we still have the cord, and it will be put in the shadow box, along with the yarn and so much else. Sonja & Derek

Michelle officiated our wedding on September 19th and what a great officiant she is! She is dependable, personable and professional. We live in Kingston, so almost everything had to be done by telephone or through emails. She was always warm, inviting, communicative, and responded quickly. We didn't meet until right before the ceremony yet my husband and I felt comfortable with her immediately. It was obvious that she has done this many times. Her calm and soothing nature brought such a calming energy to our ceremony, and made the entire process so easy. Thank you so much, Michelle. You made our experience truly amazing and we are very grateful for having you as our officiant. Love, Dominique and Steve
Dominique and Steve
Michelle (Hrynyk) was fantastic on our wedding day. She took the time to listen to the needs of my husband and I, and as a result we had a beautiful blended tradition (Pagan) handfasting that we and everyone else at the wedding just loved! It was amazing and unforgettable. I highly recommend her, and I'd like to say thank you once again. Kelsey & Gabriell 07/25/2015

Michelle Hrynyk was fantastic. She is very expressive and was great performing or ceremony. Everyone in the All Seasons reservations office was very helpful. If I had any questions they were willing to answer the for me.

Thank you so much for being a part of our day. We were so happy with everything. Other than the weather being a little cold it turned out to be an amazing day!
Amber and Ashley
We thought Michelle Fansett was wonderful. She considered our wishes, accepted feedback and then provided suggestions of her own. Many of our friends asked us where we had found such a great speaker and warm communicator.
Lee and Mike
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 and Lynn
A heartfelt thank-you Bev King! You're easy-going, fun and engaging approach made our wedding ceremony absolutely perfect. You gave us just the right amount of info to prep the way we needed and the right amount of direction and support to make the day exactly what we wanted. You are awesome! We would certainly recommend Bev!
Mandy and Jane
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
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
Roger LaRade was incredible! Friendly, responsive, understanding. As Paul said, he is 10++++.
Mark and Paul
Our Wedding Day was a perfect and magical event. It was made so in part by our wonderful Officiate Nancy Doukas. From the moment we met, Nancy put us at ease, and made sure that we were prepared for our big day. It was like having a dear and trusted friend to guide us. Our Pre-Wedding meeting was so helpful, and on the day of our Wedding, Nancy was the picture of calm and control. We knew that we were in very good hands. This allowed us to really focus on the ceremony and enjoy every minute. We are very grateful to have had such a special person as Nancy to marry us. We would highly recommend her services. Sincerely, Kelly and Katherine
