Laurie rocks!

We had Laurie officiate our ceremony and so glad we did! She responded to us right away! She was always prompt to answer any and all questions we had and was super helpful when we said we wanted to write our own vows. She shared examples with us to get a good start, which was very much appreciated! We are a light hearted couple who likes to keep things fun and funny while still maintaining the romance and she nailed it! We loved the addition of having us each privately submit our own versions of our love story to her. We got tons of compliments from guests that the ceremony was so fun and unique. Thanks for everything Laurie! We highly recommend you choose her to be your officiant :)

Absolutely wonderful

We can’t say enough good things about Laurie. She is flexible, thoughtful, and took the time to explain everything and make sure we knew what to do. She personalized our service, and it was perfect, made our amazing day even better.

Fun and flexible marriage ceremony

We had our wedding ceremony abroad and wanted to do a quick legal ceremony here at home. She offered a great solution and was flexible when we had to change the date due to one of our witnesses not being available.
It was great value, an easy experience and a fun way to “make it legal.”

Highly Recommended!!

I don't even know where to begin with this testimonial....Laurie is absolutely amazing!
She was organized, checked on me and kept everyone in line!
It was important to us that our ceremony reflected how we are as individuals and a couple...funny, sarcastic, witty, light, sassy...she fit in with us perfectly. Our wedding embodied us in every possible way, and that was all because of Laurie. I wouldn't change a thing about it!

Perfect fit for our wedding!

Laurie was the perfect choice for our officiant. She provided clear guidance to us newbies to the process and was fun and flexible to work with. Before the ceremony she asked us and our closest friends and family questions about our relationship that helped her customize the ceremony. It was perfect for us with the right amount of levity to balance the inevitable tears. Thanks Laurie for being so great!

Magical intimate ceremony

Laurie made us and our love story feel unique, and special creating an intimate ceremony. It was a truly magical day and leading up to it we felt all the support we could have hoped for and more. Laurie is special and truly helped us join our dreams!

February wedding

Laurie was so flexible with us and was always willing to offer us insight into what past couples had done. With having a covid wedding we went from 50 people down to 30 and at the last minute, she was willing to marry us a day early in a brewery in Innisfail with just our witnesses. The ceremony she created was personal and included quotes from some of the most important people in our lives. You will not regret choosing her.

About Me

My husband and I recently moved to Innisfail, Alberta.

We met on E-Harmony 9 years ago. I fell in love with him at about the 3rd date. And I kissed him first. :)

Between the two of us, we have three grown children, a Goldendoodle, and a very spoiled MaineCoon.

I'm into my fourth year of being a professional wedding officiant. I feel it's the best job in the whole world.

I'm also a Funeral celebrant.

A perfect mom (just ask me), a lover of gardening, sewing and pretty much all girlie things.

​And a very proud participant of Choices Seminars
