I would recommend her to everyone I know for their wedding , she truly was a god send in our marriage . I will forever be greatful for her being our officiant . Once again Janice thank you for making our day wonderful !!

We had such an amazing wedding at Ball's Falls with Janice (Smith). She had so much energy and gusto from the beginning, that she never lost anyone's attention. When she did our reading, she put so much enthusiasm into it she had all our guests laughing. We couldn't have asked for anyone better and we would recommend Janice to everyone looking for a personable, upbeat, caring, accommodating (the list goes on) wedding Officiant. Thank you SO much Janice for making our day that much more special!!
Amanda and Terry
Hi Janice (Smith), Now that we're back to the grind and trying to get everything wrapped up, I wanted to take a moment to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Our ceremony was amazing...because of you. Our friends and family have been asking us where we found you because they loved the service, and have said that you were the best officiant they've ever seen. We couldn't agree more!!! Every step of the way, you shared yourself with us and took the time to get to know who we are. We cannot adequately express just how honoured we feel to have had your touch on our wedding day. If you ever need a reference...or referral we're honoured to help! Again, thank you so much!!
Kelly and Diane
Janice Smith went above and beyond! She was a gift from the Goddess Herself! I never could have gotten through the stress of various events surrounding our wedding without her. She is the most wonderful person and we are honored that she married us. We will never forget that magical day! Janice made our ceremony specific to us. Her voice and presence were powerful and spiritual. I am so glad we chose All Seasons and were able to bring this wonderful woman into our lives.
Ally & Jake
Janice Smith was fantastic! She worked with us and made our ceremony exactly as we wanted. So many people commented afterwards it was the best ceremony they have been to! Could not have asked for more.
Melissa & Ryan
Janice is the best! She married us last year on this day and brought such a special element to our ceremony. Leading up to our wedding day, she was helpful and offered great advice, guidance and reassurance. Janice is fun, lighthearted, joyful, kind, eloquent and professional. My cousin was a bridesmaid in our wedding and thought so highly of Janice, that she requested her for her own wedding this coming October. If you’re looking for a professional and fantastic officiant with a warm smile and heart, Janice is the one!! Thanks for adding so much joy to our wedding, we’re so happy and are filled with gratitude that you officiated our ceremony, Janice!
Anna & Ross
Janice Smith was fantastic. She helped us through our nerves and understanding of the process, provided a great rehearsal, and a fantastic ceremony. Everyone thought she did an amazing job. The All Seasons reservations office was very organized and provided good reminders and explanations. The whole process was very easy and Janice was fantastic. I would definitely refer others. It was an overall great experience dealing with your company and Janice. The bio provided for her was extremely accurate and she was exactly what we hoped for.
Gregory & Lauren
Janice Pow was so AMAZING ! We could not have picked a better officiant ! She is such a wonderful person and very helpful with all the details (the things I did not even think of) !

I honestly don't know where to begin! Maureen Russell was absolutely amazing, we could not have found a better fit for us. She was up for anything and had a beautiful smile on her face the entire time! We were nervous of course but Maureen has such a calm and laidback nature that she put everyone at ease. I can honestly say I was surprised at how calm we became too! We are still talking about her and so are our guests...in fact our maid of honor and best man will be contacting Maureen to renew their vows! So to sum it up...we love, love, love Maureen and would highly recommend her if you want the best!

“If you love life, life will love you back”. Residing in the small town of Tillsonburg, Julie has many skills, but her ability to connect with people quickly will make her a welcome addition to your special day. Quick decision making is one of her strengths which will be most beneficial and will ensure a smooth and memorable ceremony. Julie respects all faiths and is honoured to share in the joy of couples wishing to unite as one. Wedding ceremonies should be as unique as the two individuals committing their love and friendship to one another. No matter what you want in a wedding ceremony Julie will bring her joy and enthusiasm to ensure you have a perfect day.
Now that the glamour, the excitement and the dust has finally settled, I would like to take a moment and praise the services provided by Julie Dawley. Julie was simply amazing. She made the practice run, fun and full of laughter yet never loosing a step in the sequencing of the event. During the actual ceremony, her ability to get all present involved in the blessing of the rings was fabulous. She delivered our version of the service with a professional yet personal touch. Thank Julie for making that day so special to both of us.
Mary and Peter
Tim and I are very happy with how our wedding ceremony turned out. The ceremony examples that Julie provided us were a great base for us to work with, they were heartfelt and said all of the things we wanted to say, and we were able put together a ceremony that was just right for us. Julie, it was wonderful to see that your smile was as wide as ours, and we appreciated how you guided us through the ceremony and calmed our nerves. Thank you so much for being a part of what was an unforgettable, beautiful day!
Jean & Tim
Julie Dawley was amazing, she gave us tons of insight and examples to help make our wedding amazing! Julie was so helpful and always met all of our needs! She made it very easy! Absolutely! We will be recommending All Seasons to all of our friends getting married! And we will be highly recommending Julie!
Crystal & Ryan
Julie Dawley did an amazing job on our ceremony. Not only did we think so we had multiple people compliment us on our ceremony and what a good job Julie did. She was also fantastic to work with, listened to us and help us through the process when we didn't know what we were doing. We were able to contact her with any questions and always received a quick, helpful response. Julie supplied us with multiple samples as well to help us create the perfect ceremony for us.
Jenn & Greg
Julie Dawley is amazing, and so professional... we love her! Everything went so smoothly, we're so happy :)
Anthony & Daniel
Hi Julie (Dawley)! We can't thank you enough for marrying us - you were so calm up there and figuratively held our hands through that ceremony! We kept getting compliments all night on how lovely and personal the ceremony was. It was so reassuring to know it would be you up there once I walked through those doors, keeping Bob calm and then keeping our nerves under control during the ceremony. I know my family was so happy to have you there too - it made everything so personal. I keep saying that I had everything exactly the way I wanted it at the wedding with no compromises... with all of our favorite things together in once place, and you were absolutely the perfect officiant in that line up of perfect things!
Candace & Bob
Thank you for the great wedding experience. The suggested template for a non-denominational wedding was simple and elegant already, and have Julie Dawley deliver it was a great match. We booked late, asked for her to come to family farm on the outskirts of town at sunset, and recite a specially chosen poem. She was so accommodating and a friend of the family right away. It was brilliant! Great job!
Tracy and John
Julie was our first choice to be the celebrant of our vows and special day. Throughout our on line communication, telephone calls and face to face meetings, Julie always acted in a sensitive, professional, creative manner. She offered solid guidance and structure to our process and made the "business" part of our event seamless. Julie helped us with our ceremony to be reflective of our lives and eloquently delivered her kind words. In fact, after our ceremony, she was approached by some of our guests to discuss possible future work. That speaks volumes and I hope that transpires. Julie Dawley is a first class officiant and it was truly our honour to have her share in our wedding. She is to be commended.
Nancy and Rob
Julie Dawley was absolutely wonderful! Her warmth and caring nature really added a special touch to our wedding ceremony. Throughout the planning process, she was always available for any questions which greatly reduced our anxiety level. We would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for an officiant!

Chitra and Tricia
Hi Todd, We would like to express our sincere appreciation for your service in conducting our wedding ceremony. The ceremony was vibrant yet dignified, and your tone and approach underlined the sincerity of the event yet helped us and our guests feel at ease. We especially appreciate that the ceremony went so smoothly despite us getting it started a few minutes late. Your coaching us before hand on the few aspects we would not have been prepared for, e.g. the exchange of vows and rings, was very helpful, and clearly showed your caring adn thinking of us at that moment, and reflected your extensive experience. Thank you very much for your advice and assistance on the ceremony script and on the request for expedited registration and processing of our marriage certificates. We truly appreciate your flexibility, especially since the wedding was scheduled with very short notice, and your accommodating our needs. Thank you for making our special day possible and our ceremony so beautiful, with best wishes always for your future wedding ceremonies.

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
Thanks Aestus Rogers you met all our expectations and more.The simplicity and straightforwardness of the ceremony was, we believe, a big part of its power. Your calm demeanour, presence, and poise created a lightness and levity to what was nonetheless a solemn and weighty moment. We know that's kind of a contradiction but looking back on the ceremony we can identify in ourselves feelings both fuzzy and granite-like, formal and relaxed, noble and yet down-to-earthy. Yeah we're waxing a little poetic here, but doing so only to express our gratitude at how perfectly suited the ceremony was to who we are and what we wanted for it.
Shawn and Stephen
We met with Gerry Copeman a few weeks prior to our wedding date This is when he explained to us the ceremony layout and what we should expect at that time It was very reassuring to us how confident he was in his duties. Several of our guests asked who supplied us with the service .We have referred your name to a few already. Gerry offered several options in the readings for the ceremony Great feedback from guests how well the ceremony went that day. My 86 year old mother even said it was a lovely time. Gerry set our unrest to ease as he prepared us for the event
Michael and Daniel
It is our esteemed pleasure to write a referral in support of the one and only Todd Kaufman who officiated our wedding in the summer of 2014. Choosing Todd was a true blessing – It is a decision we will never come to regret. He truly went above and beyond in helping us understand the nuances of getting married – he covered all details from getting paperwork to writing vows, but never for a moment pressured us to adopt any pre-existing formalities. He counseled us many times leading up to the event and when all of the compounding stress was hitting us, working with Todd never for a moment felt like work. Todd was incredible at making us feel very comfortable, excited and prepared for our big day. Of course, the lead up was only part of the story. During the ceremony, he spoke eloquently, dressed professionally and with huge amounts of sincerity, delivered a truly moving ceremony that is making me emotional as I write this. Reflecting on our day, I would say that Todd set the tone early. His sincerity, unique and personalized take on officiating a wedding, attention to detail and ability to connect with a room of any variety were the reasons why we can look back at our day and say it was perfect. To top it off, Todd drove hours from a relaxing lake view, battling Toronto summer weekend traffic just to be there with us. I don’t know many people who would be so selfless for complete strangers. Of course Todd is still a dear friend of ours. He still offers counsel when we need it with frequent check-ins to see how we are doing. I challenge anyone to meet Todd and not want to continue a lasting friendship with him. Todd is a genuine and amazing human. Suffice to say, I would recommend Todd. For just about anything. Thanks Todd! John and Zach July 26th, 2014
