More than we could have hoped for!
Leonard was amazing from start to finish -- especially when planning a pandemic wedding. He helped to guide us through the steps of the ceremony, and was flexible when we had to change dates due to venue restrictions.Sent on 11/08/2021

Great great great!
Leonard was amazing throughout the entire process of our wedding. We had to plan, re-plan, and re-replan everything due to pandemic restrictions, and he took everything in stride. What a nice guy and we felt like we were in great hands the entire time. Thank you so much, Leonard!Sent on 28/10/2020

Leonard is Amazing!
Planning a pandemic wedding was no easy task but Leonard lifted a huge weight off our shoulders and immediately made us feel like we could do it!
We had our officiant booked and checked off the list more than a year in advance and this person backed out a month before the big day. We had no idea how we were going to get back on track in that short time. We found Leonard that same night and his reviews were incredible!
We decided to take a chance with the stranger from the internet and it ended up being the best decision we made. We are so thankful that our original officiant backed out because we couldn’t imagine our wedding with out Leonard being a part of it.
He immediately put our very stressed minds at ease and he was so flexible with all the changes that were out of our control including venue and time adjustments.
We couldn’t have pulled off this wedding with out him and are so grateful for his calming presence and positive attitude.
Thank you Leonard!Sent on 10/01/2021
Leonard Nolasco - Wedding Officiant's reply:Jeff and Emma - Do you ever wonder if things happen for a reason? It's as if the stars aligned with this one. I'm so glad that you both reached out to me and that your original officiant backed out. I know that's a little selfish of me, but you two are some of the coolest people I've ever had the chance to meet. I had an absolutely blast officiating your wedding. Thank you for trusting me with it. Congrats again to you both!

Caring and Personal
My now Wife and I, were lucky to have met Leonard. He added a personal, warm and caring touch to our Ceremony with his kind foreword. Very professional; kept in touch throughout the time leading up to our day, in spite of all adversities, he was able to commit and give us the best send off possible.Sent on 13/10/2020

Wedding Officiant and Celebrant
I’m a Certified Life Celebrant in Canada and a licensed Marriage Officiant in the Province of Ontario, serving the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
Ordained as a Minister by the Canadian International Metaphysical Ministry (CIMM), I specialize in performing wedding ceremonies using a calm, collected and professional approach. Metaphysics recognizes and respects all religions and spiritual paths. I am free to marry couples of all faiths, cultures, or sexual orientation.
Professionally, I am a fundraiser with SickKids Foundation with a background in Project Management (which has helped with keeping couples organized as we plan their ceremony). I volunteer my time as President of my Condo Board, a Board Director for Childhood Cancer Survivor Canada and a Crisis Responder for Kids Help Phone.
I spent the better part of seven years living and working aboard in Qatar and South Africa. I’ve been to at least 25 countries and I intend on travelling to 40 countries by the time I turn 40 (i.e. 15 countries in five years). I also love to cook. Check out quarantine.cuisineTO on Instagram to see how I’ve kept busy during quarantine.
The reason I got into this business was because my friends asked me to “officiate” their wedding. (Think Joey marrying Chandler and Monica on Friends). At the time, I wasn’t licensed, so we did the ceremony anyway and they had a Legal Officiant do the declaration. Months later, another friend said she was eloping and asked me to officiate her wedding. That’s when I decided to get licensed. Officiating is a great side hustle (I mean, what millennial doesn’t have one?). Not only do I get to meet incredible people from all walks of life but I also get to be a part of their special day. It’s important for me to work with the couple in delivering a ceremony that reflects who they are and what they believe in.
