Friendly and Helpful!
Ceres was a lovely officiant. Even with all that was happening with COVID-19, she was super accommodating and responsive with our communications. With so many changes and adjustments, she was one of the pieces that was easy to plan. On the day of the ceremony, she was on time, arriving at the chosen location without any issues. She was patient and helpful throughout the whole event.Sent on 23/12/2020
We did not originally look for someone who was multi-lingual. The fact that she spoke English and Cantonese was appreciated and a plus as we had family members who were ESL. We had some good laughs during the ceremony and she made us feel comfortable even while we were nervous. Ceres made our special day work out the way we wanted it
Ceres Lee's reply:Thanks so much Samantha for your kind words. It means a lot to me that you enjoyed the ceremony as it was such an important, precious life moment. Despite all the adjustments we had to make prior to the ceremony, it turned out perfectly. Wish you a wonderful journey ahead as Mr. and Mrs.

Ceres was punctual, sweet, and super informative! She went the whole nine yards to make our day perfect and prepared vow books for us to remember the day by. She professionally led the ceremony bilingually (Cantonese and English), and made sure the transition was seamless. Can't recommend Ceres enough - thanks again!Sent on 16/10/2020
Ceres Lee's reply:Alice, thanks so much for the amazing review. It was such great pleasure to be a part of your special day. It means a lot to me that you enjoyed the ceremony as it was such an important milestone in life for you two. Thanks again :)

Great wedding officiant!
Ceres is fluent in both English and Cantonese. She is organized, thorough, and well-prepared. She went above and beyond to print our vows on high quality paper so we didn't need to memorize anything. She suggested doing "tying the knot" ritual at our wedding ceremony, which we thought was very special and meaningful. We highly recommend Ceres Lee!Sent on 26/10/2020
Ceres Lee's reply:Karen, I really appreciate your kind review. It was wonderful that you loved the handfasting ritual, which is such a beautiful rite of passage. I had a lot of fun officiating the ceremony (you guys had the coolest costumes ever!) and I'm glad you enjoyed it too. Thanks again and all the best :)

Best multi-lingual officiant in Vancouver!
Ceres was our officiant, and we couldn't have asked for anyone better! From the initial consult to the day of, Ceres went above and beyond to customize the ceremony to our needs, including a beautiful vow book and sentimental marriage certificate. We needed an officiant that could speak in Mandarin due to our families, and Ceres wow'd us with her ability to seamlessly transition between each language.Sent on 23/10/2020
We would recommend Ceres to anyone looking for a multi-lingual officiant in a heartbeat!
Ceres Lee's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Lisa. Despite all the adjustments we had to make prior to the ceremony, it turned out perfectly. I enjoyed the ceremony and I'm so happy that you and L did too. Congrats again and have a wonderful journey ahead.

Ceres was wonderful!
Ceres was very detailed, flexible, and accommodating for us. My wife and I had to alter our wedding plans due to covid19, and Ceres was more than helpful in our rearranging of our plans. She is very well organized, which definitely helped to reduce our nervousness and anxiousness on our special day. She conducted the ceremony in both English and Cantonese, and many of our guests specifically commented that Ceres conducted the ceremony very well! She also prepared a keepsake certificate and vow cards, which is a very nice touch. We highly recommend Ceres!Sent on 29/07/2020
Ceres Lee's reply:Thanks so much Hugo for the wonderful review. We had to make some adjustments due to the pandemic but I'm so glad that everything went smoothly on the big day. Hope you and your wife created happy wedding memories to cherish in the years to come. Thanks again :)

Personalized and flexible
Ceres not only was incredibly flexible and adaptable with us changing from wedding to an elopement (due to covid) and moving locations, but made us feel really comfortable as well. She was very well organized and kept us on track for getting the marriage license on time. She asked questions to get to know us and personalized the ceremony to fit. Her extra little touch are some cute keepsakes of the vows with a personalized floral design for the couple to have as a memory of their special day. Thank you for being a part of our special day, Ceres!Sent on 25/07/2020
Ceres Lee's reply:Charlotte, I really appreciate your kind comment. Thanks for including me in your beautiful ceremony by the water with the lovely floral arrangements made by your friends. Wishing you and M a wonderful journey as you build your new life together :)

Lovely, Considerate, and Highly Recommend!
Ceres officiated me and my partner in September when we were arriving in town from Hong Kong. We didn't give her much time to prepare since I got in contact with her in early August, but she was very accommodating, organised, detailed, and kept in contact with me efficiently through email and phone. We really appreciated her touching words and it meant a lot that she made us very comfortable during our intimate private ceremony. We had it conducted in English, but she is also fluent in Cantonese which is very helpful. Thank you Ceres! Highly Recommend!Sent on 17/10/2019
Ceres Lee's reply:Hi Casey thank you so much for your lovely review. I felt so blessed that everything turned out great despite the heavy rain that day (it is Vancouver after all). The last minute decision to change location was brilliant. I enjoyed the ceremony and I'm glad that you did too. Thanks again :)

Ceres is wonderful!
Ceres is amazing and we are so grateful we found her.Sent on 16/06/2020
Ceres walked us through the entire process on how to create and plan our ceremony and she was very flexible on how much we could customize and personalize it. She provided a lot of advice and materials that really helped guide us on tailoring our special day. She definitely helped take a lot of stress off our shoulders.
We had to change our original plans due to COVID and Ceres was really understanding and accommodating to our needs.
Ceres spoke eloquently and truly made our ceremony feel special (and not cheesy). She performed the ceremony in English, but we know she would have been able to perform it in both English and Cantonese (as that was our original pre-COVID plans).
We love the beautifully handmade keepsake cards she made for us (it had our vows printed o….). It makes a wonderful keepsake and something nice to hold during our vows.
Overall, our thoughts on Ceres are, that she is very sweet, warm, genuine, and friendly. She is also detail-oriented, organized, and professional; she made sure all our paperwork was in order, reminded us what we needed to bring on the day of the ceremony, and asked ahead of time to ensure she pronounced our names properly.
She provided a wonderful and memorable ceremony. She is great to work with and would definitely recommend her to our friends and family.
Ceres Lee's reply:Thank you very much for taking the time to write this awesome review. I'm delighted to know that you found the ceremony wonderful and memorable as it matters a lot to me. Despite all the changes we had to make before the ceremony, it turned out beautifully. Thanks again for including me on your special day. Have an amazing journey ahead as Mr. and Mrs. Li ;-D

Extremely professional and bilingual officiant
We hire Ceres for our May, 2020 wedding and she was great! Unfortunately, like most 2020 couples, we had to postpone our "big wedding" to next year, but we still did an intimate backyard legal ceremony on our original wedding date. Ceres was extremely accommodating of our changes, and everything went very smooth. We loved that our ceremony was highly customizable with Ceres, including customized vow cards that Ceres makes by hand, and being able to have part of the ceremony in Mandarin Chinese. We highly recommend Ceres if you are looking for a wedding officiant, especially if you're looking for someone who is bilingual,Sent on 31/05/2020
Ceres Lee's reply:Sheila, thanks ever so much for your great review. I still remember how we started to prepare for the ceremony and our first meeting in downtown after work almost two years ago. Due to the pandemic, we had to change the ceremony format drastically. I'm so happy that you loved the intimate backyard ceremony as it means a lot to me. Thanks again and wish you and B all the best.
