    Wonderful!

    Christian was our officiant for our wedding in the middle of a pandemic! He was amazing. He put so much thought and care into what he was going to say. He made it so personal, it was perfect. He was very caring and professional.

    Would Recommend Christian To Anyone

    Christian was absolutely wonderful! We had to cancel all of our wedding plans due to COVID, but decided to have an intimate ceremony with just our immediate family and grandparents. Christian was exactly what we were looking for in an officiant. He was friendly, professional, fun, and was always responsive. He was a pleasure to work with and we would recommend him to anyone.

    Pleasure to have met you!

    He is such a great guy to work with! I'm pretty sure when people say they are having the marriage blues, it's probably not what we were going through (and probably many other couples during this madness). From the first email to our first conversation, he was warm and welcoming, I could almost hear the smile in his voice. We only were in touch for less than a month but he really helped us get through a tough time. The piece he wrote for us was simple and sweet just like we wanted, with a hint of tasteful humour. If anybody out there is in need for somebody to marry them I HIGHLY recommend this wonderful man. If it were appropriate at the time we probably would've asked him to join us for coffee (or beers) after the ceremony because he was just awesome!

    Christian Sawka Wedding Officiant's reply:

    Thanks so much, May! It was such a pleasure to be a part of your wedding and I definitely think we should still grab coffee or beers at some point :D

    Fantastic Officiant

    Christian was fantastic. He was proffessional, flexible and open to our ideas for the wedding ceremony. He attended our wedding rehearsal without question and took the initiative to coordinate between himself and the venue ahead of time to ensure accuracy and good communication between all parties involved. He provided us with excellent service, and family and friends were very satisfied with his work. I would highly recommend Christian to anyone who asks. Thanks again for everything Christian!

    Warm, Welcoming, Flexible, The Best!

    Christian performed our ceremony on Aug 24, 2019 and he was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process. From the first time I met him, I knew we made a great choice. His welcoming and warm personality made the whole process so easy! He provided great resources and templates for our ceremony, and Christian was incredibly flexible when I decided to change things up on him! We were extremely impressed with his professionalism and would HIGHLY recommend his services!!

    Amazing Service, Above and Beyond

    We can't recommend Christian enough! He was a pleasure to work with. He really makes you feel comfortable. He made things really easy, providing us with all the details of what the day was going to like like, which things he would be involved in, a draft of his important talking points, as well as availability for questions throughout the process. He attended the rehearsal dinner and lead the entire wedding party through a rehearsal. It's so refreshing to have someone young and personable be a big part of the wedding day. He went above and beyond to ensure everything was stress free. Christian has the experience to knock it out of the park and but has incredible passion for his work. He will make you feel like your wedding is his number one priority. You won't find a better officiant!

    I still remember the first time Paige messaged me, and then I laughed a little once we figured out that we went to elementary school together. It was a pleasure to get to know you guys, and it was an honour to be a part of your wedding.

    Couldn't be happier!

    My husband and I had been to many weddings in the past and sometimes we were astounded at the officiants level of interest or enthusiasm. Stuttering, too quiet, unable to smile, too busy to answer our questions etc.

    We contacted Christian because we were excited to find someone our age who could go with the flow and understand our sense of humour. We were extremely happy with Christian's service. Not only was he very approachable and flexible to meet with, but he also clicked with us and our wedding party right away. The rehearsal and wedding ceremony were very smooth. Our parents and guests at the wedding later commented on how great and funny our officiant was, surprised that he wasn't a friend we'd known beforehand. We wanted someone who could do everything an officiant can do, but just be casual and relaxed about it, and that's exactly what Christian was for us. He also was very helpful leading up to the wedding, answering all my questions and even making a copy of my vows when I accidentally forgot them! Life saver! I would highly recommend him. Thanks Christian!

    Christian Sawka Wedding Officiant's reply:

    Thanks so much, Ashley! I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you guys and being a part of your ceremony. I will always remember Kris's shocked looked when we first met because he assumed I was going to be old :)

    Excellent Officiant!

    Choosing Christian as our officiant was the best decision we made for our ceremony. Christian made this part of our wedding day stress free. We were relatively picky about our officiant so finding Christian was a dream. After having our first conversation with him, he made us feel comfortable and supported in our vision for our wedding day. He provided different scripts and examples of ceremonies and gave us the opportunity to customize it (although, we didn't need to - one of his examples were a perfect fit). He made our wedding feel modern and fun, exactly what we wanted. There was nothing but love and good vibes in the room. Thank you Christian!

    Wedding July 7 2018 - Port Moody, Klahanie Canoe Club

    Christian was an amazing Wedding Officiant for our wedding on July 7, 2018. We met him a few times prior to the wedding date and he was very organized, thorough and helpful. We exchanged a few phone calls and emails prior to our wedding date. He also provided a few templates as ideas and we modified them to our style. Christian is a very captivating speaker and he really made sure that the ceremony went very smoothly. I would recommend Christian to anyone planning a wedding ceremony, absolutely fabulous wedding officiant. We were very lucky to have chosen Christian :)

    Thank you so much Chauna, you and Paul were amazing. Between the weather being perfect, no one at the pool and both your families it couldnt have been a more prefect day!

    Christian was the perfect addition for our ceremony

    The moment we met with Christian we knew he’d be a great fit for us. He was so prepared and helpful and made the ceremony process and planning less stressful and more fun. Our ceremony felt custom and true to us and we could not be more thankful!

    Christian Sawka Wedding Officiant's reply:

    Thanks Kathleen! It was an absolute honor to be apart of your wedding. Hopefully you guys are checking out all the new breweries that are opening up I think North Paw might be the next one in Poco.
