Ontario Gay & Lesbian Wedding Ceremonies is pleased to make the following wedding resources available to you. While every effort has been made to ensure the quality of the services listed, we can neither warrant nor recommend their suitability to your specific ceremony.
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.

Hi Natasha, Tyler and I wanted to take the time to properly thank you for all the hard work you did before, during and I'm sure after our wedding day. You played such a pivotal role in making this day special, you went above and beyond what we felt an officiant should do, all so that we would feel comfortable and happy. We want to thank you for always being there either by phone, email or in person to chat and to answer our questions and not once did you ever make us feel rushed and we certainly appreciated your positive and charismatic attitude and personality. I remember the first meeting we had with you and you reflected that the wedding day was our day. Well we could see that you live by that motto; your flexibility, acceptance, support, care and attention to detail allowed our wedding ceremony to not only be memorable but be personal and unique to us and our family. We want to thank you for your guidance throughout the entire process. We will continue to recommend you to all our friends and family. Take care and all the best, Antoine and Tyler 07/30/2015

Just want to express how thankful we were to Joel Rivera for his services. He was so professional yet so friendly and everything was so perfect. We got so many appreciations and compliments from our family and friends for the ceremony. He made our marriage process so easy and stress-free. Coming from different cultural background and religion we were little skeptical about the whole ceremony but Joel made us so comfortable that we found it so easy as he explained to us about each process step by step. Everything was so detailed and he really did a great job. He just didn't make our wedding a memorable one but he also engaged himself with our guests and made everyone laugh and have a joyous experience. I highly recommend him as he did a wonderful job.

Sandra Ruch was an absolute dream to work with, from start to finish. We knew from our first meeting that she was the perfect choice for our wedding officiant: smart, funny, so warm and compassionate. We knew we were on the same page. She really listened to us and helped us create a ceremony that was perfect suited to our personalities and needs, combining our Jewish and Acadian backgrounds. Thank you, Sandra, for the most memorable day.

Andrew McGregor was the perfect choice for our backyard wedding. He delivered such a relaxed, professional service even while facing distractions like lawnmowers, barking dogs and a child on an ATV! Andrew's calm and positive energy was a definite relief on such a hectic day. We loved that he took the time to chat with our guests after the ceremony, and received numerous compliments on his company. We would highly recommend Andrew to be a part of your special day!

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!
