I never tire of exploring and meeting people in the beautiful Fairmont and Columbia Lake area. I am passionate about working with wide ranging groups so that all feel welcome and respected for who they are and their beliefs. As an active minister with Clergy Support Memorial church, I am also pleased to be involved with the Roman Catholic Women Priests, who give voice to women who feel called to use their gifts and talents as leaders in their communities. Creating meaningful Life Celebrations that are inclusive is something I enjoy. My hobbies include cooking, running, cycling, bridge, spending time with others, and reading. I am the proud mom of two grown children and an ordained minister.

Lorraine (Cowan) was the perfect officiant. She was completely committed to our vision for our wedding which consisted of a pretty loose concept with a few specific parameters that was reasonably untraditional. We met over skype and exchanged a few emails and she fleshed out our loose ideas into a very beautiful ceremony that we had plenty of time to review and provide comment - we didn't have many to make since it was on point. She reminded us that she could make edits as the ceremony evolved and that it was our day and should be just what we expected and wanted, which we appreciated since it was a little offbeat. She took care of all the legalities, which was helpful since we do not live in Canada. She also made several logistic suggestions that were helpful since we were unfamiliar with the city of Montreal and also with the whole process of getting married. She showed up the day of right on time, very professional but warm, and was in communication throughout the day. Our guests kept repeating to us at the reception how beautiful the ceremony was and how great the officiant had done. You could definitely tell she was an experienced professional in her element and that she loves what she does. We couldn't have had a better wedding officiant. Thanks for everything Lorraine!

Kim Adney was amazing! When we were initially searching for an officiant, we had been turned down by one because we are a same-sex couple. We were a little disappointed to say the least. We didn’t know where to start or how to decide on an officiant, but when we found All Seasons Weddings and read Kim’s information, we knew we wanted to meet her in person. Immediately following our first meeting, we agreed right away that we wanted to book Kim. During the ceremony, Kim’s delivery was outstanding. Kim provided a lot of options for the ceremony that we pieced together to make it more meaningful to us and we also provided her with a personalized paragraph to be included in the ceremony (a quote from Einstein) and she brought the words to life. She made it seem like time had stopped and it was just my wife and I alone together making the biggest commitment of our lives to each other. Words can’t describe or give justice to the atmosphere that she created through her flawless delivery of the ceremony. Thank you Kim!

I want to give a huge shout out to All Seasons Weddings, particularly Robb and Kathleen, for their magnificent attempt to make a dying man’s wish come true. I am a clinical social worker in a Critical Care Unit. For weeks, I had worked with two lovely gentleman who had been friends since they were eight years old. In their twenties, they decided to live together and became a couple, despite the fact that this was a challenge. One of the partners became critically ill upon their forty fourth year of living together. Their wish as a couple had been to be married upon being together fifty years. They regretted that they would never be married. I had no idea how to make this work but contacted All Seasons Weddings, who graciously offered an officiant to us for that very evening, given the timeliness required. This couple had a “ceremony of marriage” in our Critical Care Unit. Not only that, but they tried valiantly the next day to help secure a marriage license, which regrettably did not come through. My patient has passed- but his partner will always remember the professionalism, generosity, caring approach of All Seasons Wedding, as will I! My thanks and kudos to them, and also their generosity in doing this pro bono!”

Natalie Joy Quesnel went above and beyond our expectations. Natalie fit the kind of service we wanted exactly and had some very helpful insight into issues we hadn't even thought of. Working with her was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend her to friends and family. Shawn and Matthew September 2019

Charles Hain was wonderful. He was friendly, warm, and welcoming. He made the process very easy, and we loved the ceremony he put together. In fact, we loved his words so much we chose to keep the vows he had written, instead of writing our own; they were beautiful and said everything we wanted to say.

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
