Personalized Ceremony in the nick of time
My Fiancé (now Husband) and I decided to get married in 3 weeks this October! We immediately began organizing for our officiant. We decided to reach out to Valerie due to her positive reviews and personable website. We were not disappointed. Not only was she a pleasure to deal with, but she was very helpful with leading us through the ceremony planning process. We opted to do the Loveography and we were delighted by the results...sharing a laugh and cry with friends and family at our many cherished moments leading up to our big day. We couldn't of asked for a more personalized ceremony! From start to finished we were blown away, thank you Valerie!Sent on 23/10/2020

Valerie was such a ray of sunshine and we so enjoyed having her with us for our big day! She was very flexible with times and places as we were planning our wedding all within a month! She gifted us a bottle of champagne and some beautiful glasses and came prepared with glasses and drinks for the kids as well which we so appreciated! Definitely recommend her for anyone looking for a wedding officiant.Sent on 26/10/2020

Great Person, Would Recommend
Valerie was awesome. She is fun and a great speaker. We didn't want a long ceremony and Valerie was more than willing to work with us. She was easily accessible, quick to respond, showed up early, and was exactly what we needed. We would recommend her to anyone!Sent on 30/09/2020

Have love will travel
Valerie was great to work with. She was professional and flexible. We were able to have her at our rehearsal via Facetime, and the ceremony was beautiful. She was willing to travel to any location we chose, and was wiling to change our ceremony however we needed to - and in this time of Covid - that's important. She was always just a call or text away and super friendly.Sent on 30/09/2020
Kelowna Wedding Ceremonies's reply:Jennifer, thank you so much for this kind review. You and Kevin were so gracious and creative. The venue changes kept it exciting and wow what a beautiful day and venue. It could not have been better than having it there at your own Waterside Winery. That incredible custom made altar you made wins hands down as Altar of the Year!! Your bespoke ceremony was so much fun to help write and I wish you both a lifetime of adventure and joy! Oh and yes lotsa Chai Lattes and Green Teas!

Amazingly helpful with short notice
With all the uncertainties right now we decided to skip our destination wedding plans and do a small outdoor wedding with very little notice. Val was amazing to work with in with such a short time frame and helped me every step of the way with everything I needed to do within 3 weeks. She was kind, helpful and also did a great job at our ceremony. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Commisioner. Thanks Val! :)Sent on 13/08/2020
Kelowna Wedding Ceremonies's reply:Thank you so kindly for writing me this wonderful review. I am so pleased with how it all turned out for you. The setting was beautiful and it was such a sweet intimate wedding. I enjoyed every moment of it.

Perfect wedding officiant!
Valerie did excellent job at our wedding. She was a pleasure to work with, very professional and accomodating. She wrote our personal love story that added very touching feeling to the ceremony. She went above and beyond. We couldn't have chosen better. We recommend her very much.Sent on 15/06/2020
Kelowna Wedding Ceremonies's reply:I so loved working with you and Mike! Wow what a review . So kind and I can’t take all the credit. You two are a dynamic duo who weathered the uncertainty of these times and took all the changes in stride so Bravo to you both too! You get the couple of the year award! Your resilience and flexibility in the face of challenges will serve your marriage well! You really had a fabulous team too! Instant DJ John Bird made us all sound good and I’ll bet your photographs will be amazing too. I can’t wait to see them! PS If you ever have a child I’d love to do a welcoming ceremony - no charge! Xoxo xoxo sending so much love to you both ❤️💕
