    the most magical day of our lives!

    Wow, just wow. From the first moment that we met with Laura, we could tell that our wedding day was going to be so full of beauty, wonder and celebration. Laura's warm and loving presence, her incredible attention to detail, her in depth knowledge of ceremonial lore and her strength and grace in holding space made for such a wonderful journey with her. Laura was kind, attentive, professional, organized, wise, compassionate (especially when wedding preparations became stressful), and so helpful in putting together our ceremony.

    On the wedding day itself, Laura called in the essences of our respective ancestors, tied in our loved ones present and passed with such caring and sensitivity, and really held the most sacred space for us to enter into the bonds of marriage.

    We are endlessly grateful to Laura and her stunning work in weaving together the most perfect ceremony we could have asked for, and we recommend her completely.

    Thank you Laura for being with us and helping to create the memories that we will cherish for a lifetime

I am deeply moved by your generosity, and grateful to you for taking the time out of your very busy schedule to share your experience. Wishing you and JP a lifetime of the enormous love you have for one another and the very best health. Until we meet again, dear sister...

    Friendly, funny & caring

    Laura was amazing to work with on our ceremony details.
    She definitely puts the effort in to customize your ceremony and is definitely willing to adjust on the fly. I definitely appreciated the humour she brought to our ceremony as we had asked for that after completing our questionnaire. After meeting her she got a great feeling for us as a couple and helped us to reflect our true selves in our ceremony script & vows. She has great suggestions and is willing to work with you on making the ceremony perfect for you as a couple! Laura kept in contact with us throughout the process and was well prepared and executed our ceremony perfectly! We highly recommend Laura for your wedding ceremony.

    Laura Bee Ceremonies's reply:

    Oh Renee you and Matthew were SO great to work with also! And super FUN! Thank you so much for your review; it was a pleasure telling your love story - and what a love story it was! Big love to you both!

    She is awesome!

    Laura provided my spouse and I an elopement ceremony in Stanley Park! Laura did a wonderful job making the ceremony feel personal. She was very responsive and personable. We loved that she added a special touch to the ceremony by adding her wish for us. Would highly recommend!!! Thanks Laura.

    Highly personalized and caring

    We had a microwedding, and therefore we were really hoping the ceremony can be personalized and special to us. Laura was very accommodating, from the first day to giving us a lot of information (and we didn’t even have our questions fully thought out!) to continuing to answer the various questions we had throughout. Laura also made the rehearsal SO FUN and gave us great tips that we then implemented. Most importantly, the ceremony was so special with her personal touches. She also did this couple questionnaire that was really fun to complete, and actually ended up helping us in writing our own vows! After the wedding, we ended up reviewing each other’s answer to the questionnaire and had a great giggle! Thank you SO MUCH Laura, we couldn’t have asked for a better officiant!

    Bonus - Laura loved our furbaby!

    Laura Bee Ceremonies's reply:

    Yvonne & Martin, you were both SUCH a joy to work with! And I mean "work" in the most FUN way possible LOL! It was a beautiful day, filled with beautiful people. And the icing on the cake was getting to meet your sweet little fur-baby Appa. I am in LOVE with him!

    Wishing you both many years of good health and happiness.

    Love,
    Laura

    Just perfect.

    We would definitely recommend Laura Bee as your officiant. She was extremely accommodating as our big day was a last minute change from pre-COVID times. Very professional and conducted the ceremony beautifully. She was flawless in her incorporation of our love story into the ceremony. Thank you Laura! Absolutely recommend.

    Laura Bee Ceremonies's reply:

    Dearest Rebecca, my deepest gratitude to you for taking the time to write me a love letter! It was certainly a JOY to write your love story - and meeting you both made it easy to see why you are so incredibly in love with each other. I wish you long and healthy lives together, and lots more of the fun and adventure too!!! xoxo

    Incredible

    Laura was the perfect celebrant for our ceremony - we had some hiccups with our ceremony location days before the wedding, she helped ease our anxiety, was flexible with the location and travel and gave us faith that it would all work out. We felt a connection with her right away. She was so amazing and we are so happy with our ceremony - she tailored it to us and it was perfect.

    Laura Bee Ceremonies's reply:

    Thank you Brittany! I must say, it was easier to remain flexible when YOU were so flexible! It was pure joy to be with you and Andrew and get to know you over the last few months. And what FUN to be on the top of the world with you!! Let me know when you get that trailer and have it all decked out :)

    The perfect balance for a modern ceremony

    Laura was a fantastic officiant! We loved how she took the time to get to know us and our love story in detail, and she did an incredibly job incorporating it all into the wedding ceremony. We laughed a lot, almost cried, and enjoyed every minute. She even made sure to incorporate our dog into the ceremony and helped us identify a ceremony ritual that would be special and unique to us. We highly recommend Laura as an officiant for a ceremony that is personal, special, and modern.

    Laura Bee Ceremonies's reply:

    Dear Alexandru and Sean, thank you so much for your review! I must say, working with you both filled my heart - getting to know you and learning about how you fell in love with each other filled my heart. I still look at an avocado and think of you guys!! LOL How can I go ONE DAY without one now?!

    Sending you both much love for a lifetime of happiness and dog walks :)

    Laura was amazing and our guests asked if she was a friend. The service was personal and reflected us - like she knew us. We couldn’t have asked for a better to marry us! So grateful for her service!

    Laura Bee Ceremonies's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind review, Bob! I could sure feel the love in that room!!
    Much love for another 25 years!
