Couldn't be Happier
If you are looking for a kind, understanding and dedicated professional, look no more! Catherine is the perfect person to conduct your wedding! My husband and I couldn't be happier to have her conducting our wedding. Catherine had an unusual mission, as we had guests who only speak English and guests who only speak Portuguese. Since our first meeting, she was very flexible in accommodating a friend of mine to translate every sentence that she said in English to Portuguese.. She is so sweet and so dedicated to her work.. I just LOVE the idea of telling our guests our love story.. this was a magical moment that we will forever bring in our hearts. We couldn't be more thankful for meeting Catherine and for all the support and kindness that she provided and continues to provide us.. :) She is wonderful and there are not enough words to completely express our happiness.Sent on 25/01/2018
Chrysalis Ceremonies - Rev. Catherine McColl, Officiant's reply:Dear Lilian and Daniel - oh my goodness, your review really warms my heart! It was such a joy to be a part of your celebration, and it was so much fun to "co-present" your bi-lingual ceremony with your sweet friend Mariana! Blessings to you both!

Rev. Catherine is an angel! Patient, sweet, funny, with that trustworthy vibe. I spoke with a couple of people before meeting here but as soon as I shook her hand I knew she was the one I wanted to make our special day official. She took the time to learn more about us instead of listing all her accomplishments and credentials like other officiants. I am looking forward to working with her!Sent on 10/03/2018

My husband and I had Catherine McColl from Chrysalis Ceremonies officiate our wedding this August. From start to finish, we couldn't have been happier with Catherine! We live in Calgary but got married in Burnaby BC. She met with us personally while we were in town before starting the process of creating our ceremony. After that, we mainly corresponded via email; Catherine was always very quick to respond, often only a few hours later. She had us both fill out questionnaires to put together our love story. Even just going of the questions together was such a fun experience as a couple! She provided us several draft versions of our ceremony and was very open to any feedback or changes that we wanted to make. Catherine also helped us organize the events of the ceremony and gave us ideas that we hadn't even thought about. Catherine was present for our rehearsal and worked very well with our coordinator and our musician to make sure that everyone was on the same page and organized properly. The actual ceremony was beautiful! It wasn't too long (which was good, because it was a HOT day!) It was exactly what we wanted: light-hearted and fun and she managed to mix in just the right amount of humour at the right moments. We are both so happy with how everything turned out, and would absolutely recommend Catherine to anyone getting married in Vancouver or the surrounding areas!Sent on 22/08/2016

Catherine conducted such an amazing service capturing the spirit of who we are and what we mean to each other. The ceremony was a perfect balance of love, warmth, humour and formality. Her creative telling of our story made our family and friends feel very included and they commented on how personable she was.Sent on 06/10/2016
