Last update: May 2024

I love weddings and I love LOVE! As a professional Alberta marriage commissioner, my goal is to take away the stress and nerves of your special day to give you the best ceremony ever! But what does that mean? The best ceremony ever is the one about YOU! We take your love story and weave it into a beautifully compelling, fun, and memorable ceremony that all of your guests will be raving about!

It鈥檚 lighthearted and laidback, it will make you laugh, and maybe even make you cry. It鈥檚 just long enough to enjoy the importance of this milestone event, but short enough to leave everyone wanting more.

As a civil commissioner my ceremonies are non-religious, but I love to incorporate your cultural traditions or your personal beliefs as you wish. This is your ceremony after all! Whatever your style, you can take comfort in knowing that I鈥檒l walk you through your special day from start to married!

Above and Beyond

Laura truly went above and beyond for our elopement in Jasper. We expected a short and official ceremony, but from our one Zoom and question responses, Laura crafted a personal ceremony that made our special moment even more magical. In addition, we appreciated how easy and organized all the planning was - thank you so much!

AWE-maz-ing

JUST DO IT- look no further, Laura is the officiant you NEED on your big day!
I truly don't have enough words to describe how incredible Laura is. Both us and our guests were in complete 'awe' of the incredible job she did. She made our ceremony perfect, exactly what we were wanting. We were rather picky with choosing our officiant as we didn't want it dry, to generic, or religious in any way as neither of us are faith based, but yet we had high expectations as the ceremony was the most important part to us. Laura exceeded our expectations 100 times over. We had multiple comments throughout our night asking about our officiant, "Was she a close friend, or family?", "She knew your story inside and out", no one believed that only a few months prior, Laura was a complete stranger to us. Laura was a pleasure to work with start to finish. She was professional, understanding, fun and light hearted, and truly put her heart and soul into making our ceremony absolutely perfect. We can't thank Laura enough for keeping smiles and laughs coming from ourselves and everyone throughout our whole ceremony. No matter what you are looking for, look no further, I have no doubts Laura will make your ceremony incredibly special and everything you ever dreamed of.

Laura is incredible!

We reached out to Laura after a cancelled flight caused us to miss our dream wedding in Jamaica. With a short 4 days notice we were able to schedule our elopement in Jasper. Laura was so personable, attentive and gave our wedding such a personal touch. The silver wedding of our missed wedding was definitely having Laura as our officiant. I would highly recommend her to any couple.

The only Marriage Officiant to Consider if Getting Married in the Mountains!

Laura was the absolute best! She was recommended to me by a local resident of Jasper, as I was planning my wedding from Ontario. After our first online meeting with Laura, we knew she was the one for us. It felt like we were talking to our friend. She was responsive to all our questions along the way, and kept us on track, as to when details needed to be in. Her wedding questionnaire was extensive, but also a fun experience for my husband and I to do. She asked us to share our love story, and she was able to capture our life beautifully, for the ceremony. With our ceremony an intimate affair, we wanted a less traditional wedding, with laughter and tears and Laura didn't disappoint. She made everyone feel comfortable, and our guests are still talking about how great she was! The personal touches she intertwined into our ceremony, perfectly captured our life, love and story. She was amazing, and we cannot say enough great things about our experience with Laura!

Laura is the best!

We are so thrilled with our decision to have Laura officiate our marriage. She was so easy to talk to and work with, and she made us feel comfortable and open to share our story with her. She created the most beautiful love story to tell about us, which was the perfect mix of romance and humour, and it suited us perfectly. It sounded like she'd known us forever! She was the most calming presence during our wedding day, and was even ready with a sneaky tissue when I got emotional during my vows. She made the whole process incredibly easy, and we couldn't have been happier with Laura.

Ceremony with Laura

We booked Laura for our ceremony and it was incredible. Once booked she sent us a questionnaire to learn about us to help personalize the ceremony. When we mentioned we wanted a sand ceremony as well she knew exactly how to fit it in. When we met in person before the wedding she went through everything in detail and took all the stress away from the ceremony. The communications she sent were informative and very helpful. From making sure we filled out all the correct paperwork, sending a guide on how to write our own vows and a follow-up after with information about ordering official documents and name changes. Feedback from our guests all told us Laura did an absolutely amazing job! They were all incredibly impressed with the personalized ceremony and how she got our love story so perfect.

I highly recommend Laura if you are getting married in the Jasper area.

Marriage Officiant, Owner

Hi, I'm Laura! Your marriage officiant and wedding hype-woman!

If you asked me 5 years ago if this is what I'd be doing full-time, I never would have guessed. But, a curiosity about how to become a marriage commissioner in Alberta, and an absolute love of ceremonies have led me, to what I believe, is my true calling.

To be a part of a couple's special day, writing their love story, and seeing the reactions of friends and families drives my passion to create the most beautiful ceremonies for my couples.

I've always loved to tell stories, whether it was visually as a graphic designer, or planning the perfect event. Now, I get to retell love stories on one of the most important days for a couple. *Pinch me, I'm dreaming!*

When I'm not standing between two lovers, reciting words of commitment, I am working on my Airbnb that I run out of my house. I love to explore Jasper National park by hiking, paddleboarding, skiing, or cycling. There are endless adventures here!

At home, I love to spend time with my husband, Al, and my black cat, Pad Thai (yes that's really her name)!

I also love fashion (it was my first college diploma!), so I carry that love to my ceremonies by trying to match your colours and ceremony vibe!

I can't wait to meet you and gush about your love story!
