    Jim is absolutely professional, patient and AMAZING!

    We had our wedding on our balcony overlooking the Mississauga city hall. It was a beautiful summer day and Jim made it perfect! He was so patient, kind, and had an eye for detail. I would now only recommend him to any of my friends who are getting married! Thank you so much, Jim!

    Jim provided excellent service. He is very pleasant to work with and is very professional. We highly recommend his officiant services

    Jim McDonald officiated our wedding ceremony on May 7, 2022. Due to Covid, we had to postpone the wedding three times. Jim was very flexible with moving the wedding date each time. He was very responsive and pleasant to work with. He created a detailed outline of the wedding ceremony which was very well written and presented on our special day. We could not have been more pleased with how the ceremony turned out and would highly recommend his services to anyone! Jim was truly a pleasure to work with!

    Millie was the first bride in my experience to memorize her vows, and they were spoken beautifully. Impressive. Cory, your thoughtfulness was appreciated.

    Married during Pandemic

    I still remember when the pandemic restrictions started easing up, we started to find an officiant who’s willing to come down to our small apartment for a simple wedding ceremony. We had just moved to Canada and we didn’t have many relatives and friends to accompany us on this journey. When we reached out to Jim McDonald, he was very responsive and he was willing to travel all the way from Mississauga to East York to be our officiant. Even though it was a simple ceremony we were nervous. Jim is very experienced and made the whole process sweet, memorable, and warm. We thank Jim for being our officiant.

    Happy Together Wedding Ceremonies's reply:

    Hello Kar Rui and Rama: It was my pleasure to travel to East York, my old neighborhood. The setting for your wedding was beautiful - the lights and photos and flowers. Thank you so much for the excellent review!

    Kind, Professional and Fun

    We reached out to Jim after a recommendation from a friend. As we were from different faiths, we wanted to have a humanist ceremony not based on religion. Jim's values aligned with ours. He was very responsive and was open to adapting the ceremony to reflect the cultural practices important to both of us. He also had a few templates for us to choose from and we enjoyed building a ceremony that honoured the commitment we were undertaking and our cultures. Jim was also careful to check pronounciation of our names and practices, was respectful and created a fun environment for our ceremony. We were really grateful and happy to have Jim officiate our wedding.

    Happy Together Wedding Ceremonies's reply:

    Hello Vaish and Peter. I do enjoy working with various cultures. I enjoyed the garland exchange, and name pronunciation is important. What a colorful, joyous wedding at a beautiful venue. Thank you so much for the superb review. My warmest wishes for a wonderful life together.

    Jim is the best and very easy to work with. He was flexible which was much appreciated during the start of the pandemic. I have already recommended Jim to a friend and she was very happy with his service as well.

    Jim was the best choice!

    We got married few months before the pandemic year 2019. We were lucky to have met Jim, as recommended by our wedding venue coordinator, and had a nice chat with him in our humble home. We chose him as he's an officiant that doesn't discriminate and has zero judgement, as he's an advocate as well on officiating weddings regardless of the cultural background, religious beliefs, or gender of the couple. He's friendly yet professional, and his service is efficient and yet affordable. No regrets on making him a vital part of our wedding. Highly recommended!

    Happy Together Wedding Ceremonies's reply:

    Hello Reeca and John:
    What a beautiful, sunny day for your wedding. Thank you for choosing me as your officiant. A real pleasure to meet your family and friends. I'll always remember you, especially the smiles. Thank you so much for the excellent review!
