    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!

    Knot Your Average's reply:

    Thank you Avery!
    I truly believed that you and your guests deserved a bilingual wedding!
    The truth is, I did learn how to say it but was afraid I wouldn't say it well and I didn't want to offend your guests if I butchered the beautiful language, lol.
    Patricia did it with such finesse!
    It was such a pleasure to meet all the family!

    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!

    Look no further!

    Debbi was an absolute pleasure to work with from the very beginning. Her bubbly personality meshed with ours from the first phone call. She made the stressful experience of the ceremony into something extremely custom and beautiful. She gave us multiple options and an easy way to customize the ceremony to be very personal. We enjoyed Debbi so much that we recommended her to our friends who also ended up using her for their ceremony. Continue to do yourself and others a favour and use Debbi!

    Knot Your Average's reply:

    Thank you Nicole!
    What a pleasure it was to officiate at your wedding!
    The depth of emotion that you felt for each other that day, was truly incredible! It was so evident in the way you looked at each other and the alone time you took to bask in your new marriage after the ceremony!
    You two share a very special love!
    Thank you for choosing me to help celebrate it!

    Such a special, unique ceremony from Debbi!

    Debbi was so amazing as our officiant. She was super responsive and so helpful with any questions we had. She was on time, guided us through our rehearsal and on the day of our wedding and was such a joy to work with throughout. She gave us examples of different ceremonies and what I really appreciated was how much she emphasized that each ceremony she does is completely unique. She gave us so many ideas on how to make it special for us and it really helped us in creating a ceremony that spoke to the values we have as a couple. Would highly recommend her!!

    Knot Your Average's reply:

    I just loved working with the two of you!
    You're both so genuine and unique!
    Thank you so much for choosing me to officiate on your day!

    Debbi is just the loveliest

    Debbi was lovely to work with. We really enjoyed and connected with her. We ended up composing our own ceremony, but were inspired by many sample writings she provided. Debbi made us feel at ease and was open to meeting on multiple occasions. A genuine and kind person to have in your corner on your wedding day.

    Knot Your Average's reply:

    Thank you!
    Being an officiant, I see so much love on a regular basis but at your wedding that feeling extended to your guests. There was such cohesion, warmth, and positive energy that vibrated all through that beautiful forest!
    It resonated in my heart for weeks afterwards and is re-ignited every time I think about your day!

    Natural, profession and so sweet!

    Deb is an incredible person, this resonates through her service and through the words she speaks. Every word she spoke to us, about us and to our family and friends came from her heart. She is naturally a calming person, which is incredibly helpful when 80 of the most important people in your life are staring at you haha. Deb, you were a breath of fresh air. Thank you for being such an important part of our day! I couldn't recommend you enough!

    Knot Your Average's reply:

    You two are such a beautiful couple!
    I loved loved loved doing your ceremony!
    Lol, Winston wants to know if he can be in your vow renewal ceremony too!

    Highly recommended!

    Debbi was so great to work with! My husband and I wanted to write our own vows because we wanted to make them unique and special to us. Debbi provided us with helpful guidance with writing our vows and gave us lots of ideas and inspiration to work with. In the end, with her help, my husband and I were so happy with our personalized vows. Debbi is very responsive with emails, and follows through with things, which we appreciate because she kept us organized. She even came and did a rehearsal with us prior to the wedding, even though it was pouring rain that day! Overall, we're so happy to have had her as an officiant and we highly recommned Debbi.

    Knot Your Average's reply:

    YES! The rain!
    It was crazy! And then there was that accident on the highway and I was so stressed that you were all waiting for me and I'd be late! But the day of the wedding was perfect and the gardens are spectacular!
    Your family was all so kind!
    You were a beautiful bride and I loved your sweet flower girls!

    Best Officiant!

    We loved working with Debbi! She was so kind and professional. She was easy to work with, and really adapted her role to be what we wanted for our wedding! When our wedding changed due to Covid, she was flexible and was able to accommodate our new date. Her performance of our ceremony was perfect and we received so many compliments about how great she was! We highly recommend her!!

    Knot Your Average's reply:

    Thank you Rachel!
    Sometimes it just comes easy!
    Sometimes it just 'clicks!'
    Absolutely loved working with the two of you!
