Best wedding ceremony!
Cecilia Penner is an amazing officiant. We had to reschedule and plan our whole wedding during COVID and even change the venue from Saskatchewan to Victoria, BC. We contacted Cecilia 2 weeks before we wanted to get married and she met with us immediately. We spent 2 hours chatting and getting to know each other, and she told us a lot about wedding ceremonies. She then wrote up a script for the ceremony for us to review before the ceremony, and incorporated all the elements we wanted (such as the parents' toast during the ceremony). After our ceremony, each of our guests commented about Cecilia's professionalism, warmth, and expertise that set our day apart!Sent on 30/08/2020
Cecilia Penner's reply:Oh my, I’m blushing! Thank you, Allie! It was so lovely to meet you and Jordan, and be a part of your Big Day.

An incredible officiant who went above and beyond.
Cecilia went above and beyond for our ceremony. She did not "meet" our expectations; she well surpassed them! She met with us multiple times, sent many options for the base of our ceremony, and personalized the ceremony to match our personalities and our relationship. She was grounding in our planning, always happy to help, and patient but persistent with my husband when he didn't send his vows in until mere days before the ceremony. She worked with us to create a ceremony that was deeply personal, wildly sentimental, and not boring or dragging at all (you know those ceremonies that drag on and you start to fall asleep to- I promise, this was not one of them!). Many guests mentioned that they loved the ceremony and that she was one of the best officiants they had witnessed. Every single moment of the ceremony and all of the planning that went into it went off without a hitch, and that is all thanks to Cecilia. My husband and I couldn't be more grateful to have had Cecilia guide us through the start of this new chapter of our lives. Cecilia, Thank you for making this such an incredible experience. May many more couples be blessed by your charm, grace, and skill as an officiant.Sent on 21/11/2019

Cecilia was so wonderful to work with, super friendly and kind and was interested in getting to know us. I could tell she really enjoys what she does and really made our day special. I would definitely recommend her as an officiant. It couldn’t have been a more perfect ceremony. Thank you Cecilia:)Sent on 17/09/2019

Warmth and Eloquence
Cecilia Penner resided over our wedding and made an exceptional impression on both of us, as well as our guests. From the outset she exuded a warmth and welcome that made it easy to share with her our desires for the day. She took the time to get to know us on a personal level, which ultimately allowed her to include intimate details about our life and relationship within the script for our ceremony. At no point did it feel like Cecilia was simply doing her job, instead it was clear that she aimed to play a memorable part in our celebrations. By far, what sets her apart is her eloquence and ability to design and deliver memorable remarks throughout the ceremony. I cannot imagine our wedding without her, and am confident that others will have a similar experience.Sent on 19/03/2019
