    Great experience!

    Evelyn was great to work with! She was very concise with explaining how the process would go, what we needed to do, and what to expect on the wedding day. She provided us with a number of examples for the ceremony and vows to get us going and was very flexible. She is experienced, professional, well spoken, and has a lovely personality.

    Most amazing and accommodating wedding officiant

    Rev. Ev was the perfect choice for our wedding. She wanted to know about us, about our beliefs, and about our vision for our wedding. She then came up with a beautiful spiritual yet non religious ceremony that matched our personalities and fulfilled our vision. She was caring, compassionate and a great deal of fun. Her attention to detail combined with a wicked sense of humour helped make out special day less stressful and a lot of fun. Five stars from this happy couple!

    Happy 16th anniversary!

    Professional & friendly

    Like many newlyweds preparing for the big day, we were confused and overwhelmed on where to start. Then we met Evelyn. From the first time we connected and the build up to our wedding day, Evelyn guided us with ideas, information and material to make it a dream come true. We couldn't thank her enough for all her hard work and we highly recommend her!

    A wonderful wedding ceremony!

    Evelyn did a wonderful job officiating our wedding ceremony. She let us choose and personalize the ceremony we wanted, but also provided tools and advice to guide us along and keep us from getting overwhelmed! The service was lovely and warm, and we were so glad to have her be part of our special day.

    Helped us create our own Joyful Ceremony!

    Evelyn helped us create a really joyful ceremony! We will always be thankful that she was part of our wedding day. It is a very happy memory. She showed us lots of ideas for phrases or wording that helped us figure out the style of ceremony we wanted, one that would reflect both of us and our beliefs.
