    Thank you for the Perfect Ceremony!

    John, we are so thrilled at the ceremony you performed for us! It was exactly what we were hoping for, short but incredibly sweet! John was able to guide us through the ceremony and made sure everything ran smoothly!

    We would absolutely recommend Dream Wedding Officiants (and especially John!) to anyone!

    Fantastic Officiant

    Ray was the perfect wedding officiant for us! Great mixture of humour and loving words! He was very accommodating to communicate with us by phone as we had a destination wedding. We received many compliments on his service after our ceremony. Would definitely recommend!

    Wonderful Ceremony

    We met Steve very early in our planning stages, and we liked him right away! He took the time to meet with us in person and we felt confident that he would be great for our civil ceremony. We had difficulty reaching Steve consistently as we moved through the next few months, but Ray reached out to us with reassurance that all was ok. In the end, Steve worked with us to plan a ceremony that suited our personality as a couple, incorporating encouraging words that accompanied our chosen reading very well. Overall, we were very pleased with Dream Weddings, and with our officiant!

    Wonderful Officiant

    We were recommend Dream weddings from a family member who used them. We requested to have Jeana as our officiant and so glad we did! She was amazing to deal with. We are able to facetime her for our first meeting, she came to the rehearsal and guided us through since we had no ide what we were doing. Come ceremony day she was wonderful, our ceremony was perfect. We wanted short and sweet and she was able to do that.
    I would recommend Jeana to anyone..

    Thank you for helping us

    Thanks for a wonderful wedding

    We were extremely happy with the ceremony, the time Krista took to get to know us, and the vows she put together. It was all perfect!

    Absolutely amazing

    We could not have been happier with our officiant (Michael). He was like straight out of a movie. He had the look, the voice. Absolutely amazing to work with. Our friends and family were all asking where did you find him! Process was smooth from start to finish. Would highly recommend!!!

    We had Dwayne as our officiant and we were so blessed to be matched with him. He was amazing. I had been looking for someone easy going and fun. When we first met him he was laughing and smiling. I was sold before he said hello..haha. he was so helpful in planning our ceremony and really made it great. His kindness and wonderful energy makes him such a great fit for this career path. My only issue was I would have loved to have spent more time with him!

    We were very disappointed with our officiant, Michael.
    We paid for a package that included a rehearsal.
    We were very anxious about including this rehearsal as we had young children as our flower girls and ring bearers.
    We decided on a time and day months before our August wedding.
    Two weeks before our wedding, our officiant said that he didn't know about the rehearsal date and needed to switch to a different day.
    Our wedding is not in the city that we live in so we had to call our entire wedding party to reschedule the rehearsal on the officiant's behalf.
    We rescheduled and after all that, our officiant did not show up to the rehearsal. When we called to ask what happened, he claimed he had it written down as a different date. (the original date that we had hoped for) This was so embarrassing for me to have had my whole family and future in laws drive to a different city a day before the wedding only to not have a rehearsal at all. The worst part was that our officiant didn't even apologize.
    If that's not bad enough, our officiant had pretended to be very interested in the fact that were having a Chinese wedding and when we mentioned that we were having a tea ceremony, he willingly offered to hire a translator and to run this ceremony for us, as well. We gladly accepted and were happy at this opportunity. Unfortunately, our officiant was completely negligent in asking us what language we spoke as he had us meet with two Mandarin translators both times at which we politely mentioned that we speak Cantonese. Thankfully, at the wedding he did bring a Cantonese translator.
    We were hoping to have our Chinese tea ceremony in the morning before the wedding ceremony as would be customary, however, we moved the tea ceremony to be directly after the wedding ceremony as to not inconvenience the officiant and the translator. Shockingly, 5 mins after our wedding ceremony, right before the Chinese tea ceremony that the officiant and translator had supposedly been working on, the officiant and translator just left without saying goodbye or anything about the Chinese ceremony. This resulted in another embarrassing moment where I had to ask my father in law to run the ceremony for us 5 mins before it was held. When asking the officiant about this after the fact, he said that they expected the Chinese tea ceremony to immediately precede the wedding ceremony (which it did give or take 5 mins for me to change into a new dress). Again, not the slightest sign of remorse or apology was given. This is what hurts the most since I can't imagine not apologizing when causing this much distress during someone's wedding. We called the owner of the company to complain at which point he was shocked to find out that there had been complaint with this officiant. I said countless times that all I wanted was an apology from the officiant. None was given and though the owner offered us a gift for bad service, he never followed up with it and so we are left with an even worse image of this company.

    Dream Wedding Officiants's reply:

    We at Dream Wedding Officiants always welcome feedback, towards our goal of providing all our couples a personal and professional ceremony.

    Although it appears there were misunderstandings in this case, and although we disagree on several facets of Sheilas feedback, we always want to exceed our couples expectations, and sincerely wish Sheila felt she had received that.

    In this case, we found our officiant Michael, who consistently collects excellent reviews from couples, fulfilled expectations by finding the couple an interpreter, composing and translating the wedding ceremony, as well as the tea ceremony. Although both translator and officiant were present to perform the tea ceremony as scheduled, after almost 2 hours waiting, and no indication of when this would occur, had to leave due to other obligations.

    As Michael was unable to attend a rescheduled rehearsal (the date was changed a couple of times), we provided a phone walk thru with the couple and waived our rehearsal fee.

    We wish Sheila the very best.

    Great experience!

    What an absolute pleasure! From the first phone call to our wedding day things were completely seamless. We got a ton of compliments on how fun Ray was, totally our personality and made the whole ceremony a breeze. Highly recommend working with them.
