    Great service

    We used Catherine as our officiant, and she was amazing. She provided us with guidance on vow writing and kept us on schedule to ensure she had the info she needed to prepare a great ceremony. We threw her a curve ball 20 mins before the ceremony by moving the ceremony outside and she adapted and ensure the ceremony ran smoothly. If you want a personalized, flexible, and well thought out ceremony, then I recommend you use Catherine for your ceremony!

    Sweet Lady!

    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!

    Chrysalis Ceremonies - Rev. Catherine McColl, Officiant's reply:

    Hello Daniella - thank you so much for your kind words! I am very happy to be working with you and Wade to create your custom wedding ceremony!

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Ahhh...my dear Sarah and Jay - thank you so very much for your lovely review. It was indeed my pleasure to work with you both to create the ceremony you wanted. Best Wishes always!

    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.

    Hello again Juanita! Thank you so much for providing this review. I thoroughly enjoyed creating your ceremony for you and Delmar - you are a special couple and it was truly my pleasure!

    If you are looking for an officiant, look no further. We were absolutely thrilled by how amazing Catherine was. She created a completely custom ceremony for us based on questionnaires we completed. Amazing!

    Thank you so much Toni and Russ - it was truly an honour to work with you to create your personalized ceremony. Best wishes always!

    Being a celebrant is Catherine's "encore" career and I truly believe this is her calling. I had the pleasure of working with Catherine in her previous career and she was always so warm and friendly. She radiated such positive energy and always made me feel so comfortable. As soon as I became engaged, I knew I wanted Catherine to marry us.

    Catherine did a wonderful job personalizing our ceremony. She asked very thoughtful questions in her questionnaire in order to truly understand us individuals and as a couple. She took the time to send us drafts to review in advance of the wedding day and told us she would not take offence if we wanted to make any changes to the wording since it was our special day. It was a wonderful feeling knowing we had control over what would be said, although the ceremony was so well written by Catherine, we didn't need to make any changes.

    She told our love story beautifully at our ceremony and made sure the tone we wanted showed through. After the ceremony, many of our family and friends approached us to express how impressed they were with Catherine, how she did a great job personalizing our ceremony, and what a great personality she has.

    We highly recommend Catherine as she was such a pleasure to work it. She was always professional and punctual. Our initial venue fell through and we had to cancel and rebook with Catherine. She was so flexible and understanding about the whole ordeal. She really made us feel better in a difficult situation. We are so happy we decided to have a celebrant officiate our wedding and even happier that Catherine was the one to do it.

    Dear Melissa and Mark - thank you so much for your kind remarks. It was truly a pleasure working with you both and helping you celebrate your special day!

    Catherine is just absolutely wonderful

    I’m not sure if other officiants do this, but she gave us a beautiful copy of our vows and marriage certificate. She went above and beyond and everything was seamless and easy!! She took everything we told her we wanted and created the most special ceremony for us!

    Chrysalis Ceremonies - Rev. Catherine McColl, Officiant's reply:

    Hello again Roula and Spencer - thank you so much for this lovely review. It was indeed my very great pleasure to join you two in marriage. I wish you both a long and happy life with many blessings! And give Luna a pat for me.

    Sweet and Professional and Does a Great Job!

    Catherine did a wonderful job of officiating our wedding in August.

    She gave us a questionnaire to get the details of our relationships history and goals, then used that info to build a custom ceremony.

    She provided several options for vows, which was great as we had no intention of doing our own, and they fit well with our relationship.

    She was professional and thorough and got everything done perfectly! Couldn't ask for better.
