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

Thank you very much for this lovely message. Reflecting back on our wedding in August, we feel extremely honoured that you officiated our ceremony and celebrated at our reception with us. Our ceremony was the highlight of our wedding. We absolutely loved it — your heartfelt messages were touching and all of your jokes landed — and our guests couldn’t stop talking about what an excellent officiant you were. We’ve never cried that much in our lives! Thank you so much again, and we wish you all the best in the future. Daniel and Paul ~ August 2019

Shirley Reay was very friendly and extremely helpful. She provided a lot of useful suggestions we end up using for the wedding. From the readings to vow, and the ceremony line up. Shirley is a amazing speaker. She gathered everyones attention and did an amazing job. We are very happy with the service we got. The guests had no trouble hearing her outside because she is able to project her voice which is a plus because we didn't had stereo setup outside.

Mary [Collinson] was the best officiant Katie and I could have asked for. From the very first phone call, Mary made us feel comfortable and supported. She truly exceeded our expectations on our wedding day and made it so incredibly special. Many of our friends and family continue to comment on just how wonderful she was, and have stated that they'd love for her to officiate their own upcoming ceremony. We cannot thank Mary enough for how wonderful she was. Please use this fantastic woman! Laura and Katie, November 2020

Mari Sargent was an absolute joy to work with and both Jen and I are were proud to have her at our ceremony. We received many compliments and inquiries on how we found Mari and have passed along all the details. The office staff were prompt and courteous and guided us through the process making it a very easy step in amongst all the planning.

Jeffrey Dale was fantastic! He was easy to get in contact with, easy to talk to, willing to listen and make suggestions on what we wanted for our ceremony. Everyone was very helpful and accommodating. Jeffrey was fantastic! He made us feel comfortable, we had the ability to create and change our own ceremony and he was early and prepared on our big day. His delivery of the ceremony was great and he compromised when the mic no longer worked :) Thank you Jeffrey for being so kind, warm hearted, and compassionate on our big day!!

Kelly Keating was absolutely fabulous! As soon as we met her, we felt totally comfortable and we knew she would provide the perfect tone for our wedding. She is so warm and sweet! Our wedding was outside, next to the Ottawa River on a windy day, and our guests could hear everything she said. We included land and queer ancestral acknowledgements in our script, and she made sure that she had all the pronunciations correct. Kelly helped make our pandemic wedding a beautiful success and we are so grateful. Deirdre and Ashleigh September 2020

Thank you so much for your services on our wedding day Nathalie (Rossy)! You performed the ceremony with such poise, class and professionalism. We truly could not have chosen a better Officiant for our special day. We're both very happy that the ceremony went smoothly (despite the noisy funeral party next to us!) and we are a happily married couple thanks you and All Seasons. Thanks again! You were wonderful.
