Fabulous officiant!

Debbi made our wedding day unforgettable with her heartfelt ceremony. From our first meeting, she understood our love story and crafted a ceremony that was deeply personal and moving. Debbi's words were eloquent, blending tradition with our unique story, creating a magical atmosphere. We wholeheartedly recommend Debbi for her professionalism, passion, and ability to make our special day truly extraordinary.

The best officiant!

Debbi was absolutely amazing throughout the whole process of figuring out our ceremony. I wasn't originally sure what we wanted to do, but she was able to walk me through some options and created the perfect ceremony for us. She also came to our rehearsal which was super helpful and she interacted with the everyone and made everyone feel comfortable.

Thank you Debbi

We couldn’t have been happier with Debbi’s service! She was always available, kind, and made our ceremony feel so special. She provided us with so much freedom to ensure we loved every aspect of it!! Although she offered important insight into traditions, she didn’t make us feel bad or silly when we wanted to go in a slightly different direction. She truly brought our story to life, thank you so much Debbi. Lots of love, Ashlee & Anton July 9, 2023

Fantastic Officiant

It was a pleasure working with Debbi. From our first interaction she was just so personable! She works with you to personalize your ceremony. When she speaks of love and commitment during the ceremony it really feels like she knows your love story.

Would 100% recommend

Debbi was amazing to us every step of the way! She was very responsive and was able to capture exactly what we wanted which was a quick ceremony and lots of humour. Debbi was warm and kind and understanding to our needs! Wedding guests even asked about her and mentioned they thought she was wonderful!

Wonderful Experience

It was fantastic to have Debbi officiate our signing of documents prior to our destination wedding. She brought a personal touch to something we thought would be very impersonal! We highly recommend her for any wedding!

Fabulous from beginning to end!

Deb was absolutely fabulous from beginning to end. She helped us with creating a personalized ceremony so that our story began with something special for us. Always happy, helpful and kind. We couldn't have had our day without her and are so grateful! 10/10 service and professionalism too.

So accommodating and meaningful

Debbi was amazing, we were having a bilingual wedding, English & Portuguese and we had finally given up on the idea of being able to have a Portuguese officiant. As soon as Debbi heard this, she offered to LEARN Portuguese. WOW! She ended up having a Portuguese speaking friend come the day of and help (she cleared it with us in advance) and I cant begin to explain how special that was. Our family from Brazil felt equally as included in the wedding as all the English speakers. Debbi was also a great guidance to help us figure out the right reading. Thank you so much, Debbi!

Highly Recommend !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We met with Debbi in 2019 to be our officiant for 2020.She was so welcoming and easy going. Then Covid happened. We had to reschedule our wedding twice. Debbi has been so flexible and understanding each time we rescheduled. She stayed in touch with us and let us know she was still there for us. She even offered us use of her beautiful property to get married as an option when we weren't sure when our venue would be available due to Covid. That's how much she cares for her couples. We finally got married at our venue this year in 2022! And she was right there to marry us. Debbi offers lots of ideas and examples to help you tailor your ceremony to make it special and individual to your tastes as a couple. She made it so easy for us to create a ceremony just the way we wanted, with hand fasting (actually tying the knot) and a flower ceremony added to honour our Mothers. An idea that we never thought of before meeting Debbi. We highly recommend Debbi, she will help you make your ceremony extra special!
