10/10 would recommend.

Working with Tracy was amazing. From start to finish everything was planned extraordinary well and the ceremony went exactly as rehearsed. During the planning she also helped inspire our creativity helped us incorporate traditional values and ceremony during the wedding. We would recommend her to others in a heartbeat.

Absolutely incredible!

Tracy did our wedding in October, 2022, and we had the best experience with her. We knew Tracy was perfect for us our first meeting with her, she gives such a warm and inviting vibe, and seeing how excited she got about our wedding was such a good feeling. Tracy created the perfect ceremony for us, it was so personal and true to us without us saying our own vows, which is exactly what we wanted. The space she created and held for us, was so beautiful and all of our guests felt it as well! My wife and I are so grateful for her, and we can鈥檛 recommend her enough!

Great experience

My husband and I are so happy that we had Tracy as our wedding officiant, she did an amazing job with our small elopement ceremony and helped personalize it just for us. Through the whole process she was always kind, professional, and always responded in a timely manner. Tracy was very flexible on if we wanted to change or add anything in our ceremony but we really didn't have to change much except for a few small details as it was so well written. It was nice that we got the whole "script" ahead of time to review and make any changes if necessary. I would highly recommend Tracy to anyone who is lucky enough to book her for your big day!

An absolutely beautiful person. She is simply the best!

We have had the privilege of being married by Tracy yesterday. Not only is she just a lovely person inside and out, she made the whole experience from start to finish seamless. She assisted us in selecting just the right ceremony to complement who we are as a couple and really took the time to get to know us on a personal level. This made us feel so special and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect ceremony. Honestly, she is a natural, and really loves people and their stories. You can't ask for a better person to be married by. From the bottom of our hearts, thanks so much for making our day so magical. We both highly recommend her.

Such a beautiful genuine person

My husband and I eloped (very very last minute) and somehow we lucked out and found Tracy. She was so genuine and so kind and made the whole experience that much more magical. She obviously is passionate about what she does because it showed in every aspect of the ceremony. She even made the covid portion of the ceremony (lol) fun and adorable. Chancing upon her as our minister just reaffirmed that the rest of our lives were going to continue to be an amazing adventure and that we were on the right path. With a wedding that came together in a day so much could have gone wrong but with Tracy by our side everything went perfectly. We experienced no stress whatsoever, only love and joy.

The Absolute Best

I can't recommend Tracy highly enough. She was professional and lovely to work with, guided us through the entire process, and created a ceremony that was perfect beyond all of my expectations. She is a talented, dedicated and unique officiant that any couple would be lucky to work with.

Absolutely perfect

We truly had a wonderful experience with Heart of Seasons. Tracy is kind, thoughtful, and so well spoken and well written. She put together a wedding ceremony that was a perfect fit for us because she took the time to get to know us and learn about what mattered to us. Working with Heart of Seasons was the easiest and most fun part of the entire wedding planning experience. We felt completely cared for and like we could not have chosen anyone better. If you are looking for someone to create a special and memorable ceremony, Heart of Seasons is an excellent choice. Our family had a magical day and we will never forget how calm and happy Tracy鈥檚 presence was every step of the way. We will be recommending her at any chance we get. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We love you!

Thoughtful, Professional, Creative and Inspiring!

There are no words to express the care and attention that Tracy takes for your special day. She takes the time to get to know you on a personal level while respectfully acknowledging the sentiments you hold most dear. Tracy, thank you again so much from my wife and I for making our day as magical as we imagined it!

Celebrant & Minister

Hello! I'm Tracy Julie Anne but you can call me Tracy.

I acknowledge with reverence that I live, work and play on the ancestral and unceded territories of the Lekwungen-speaking Peoples (Esquimalt and Songhees) and the W瘫S脕NE膯 Peoples (Tsartlip, Tsawout, Pauquachin, and Tseycum).

A mixed-heritage woman, I hold Ukrainian ancestry from my mother and Czech, German, Nuxalk and French ancestry from my father. I was born and raised in small town British Columbia on the traditional lands of the Nlaka鈥檖amux Nation.

I am professionally trained in the art of ceremony and ritual with the coveted designation of Life-Cycle Celebrant and ordained by the Canadian International Metaphysical Ministry, licensed to perform marriage in British Columbia, Canada.

It is such a joy to collaborate, create, and hold space for your love story. Heartstorming with you to ensure everything you imagine for your wedding day (and more!) is my absolute joy.

When not writing and creating, you can find me on my bike spinning my legs, walking and hiking local hills, indulging in yummy food, dancing like nobody鈥檚 watching, volunteering at hospice, or sitting on my duff getting lost in motion picture. Oh. And I LOVE dogs.

With kindness,
Tracy Julie Anne
