    Abegael was absolutely outstanding! We really wanted a personal and intimate wedding, a ceremony that reflected who we are and our values. Abegael took the time to listen to our story and constructed a wedding ceremony that was heartfelt with threads of humour woven throughout. We felt at ease during the whole process of working together but especially during the ceremony itself. She created order when things had the potential to go sideways right at the start of our day, a true professional who handle a little chaos with such grace. We have had so much positive feedback from our guests, stating that it was the most personal and fun wedding they have attended, and we have Abegael to thank. We are so blessed to have had Abegael guide us through such an important moment in our life, to help us articulate an acient ceremony with some contemporary twists. She allowed us to make it our own and was the most calming presence to have at our side.

    Dear Brigitte and Dave... thank you for inviting me to celebrate the bestest Scottish wedding ever. Never have I seen so much tartan rocked so fetchingly! Never have I waited alone at the front, as first the bride entered, and then the groom rocked in, in kilt and pipers' knee-highs, and high-fived everyone in the room on the way. And never have I used a handfasting cord of double tartan, representing both families, to seal anam cara bonds. Slainte va to your artistry, your shared wildheart and your new life!

    TL;DR
    Life Threads Ceremonies is extremely highly recommended by us. We have had many people rave about our ceremony and ask us to refer them to Abegael after they experienced our wedding. Life Threads Ceremonies offers a premium service that is worth every dollar. More than that, Abegael is such a wonderful human being and we feel truly blessed for the opportunity to have worked with her in preparing for our wedding.

    FULL REVIEW
    Our wedding ceremony was perfect. How lucky we were that Abegael chose to work with us to bring our dream ceremony to life!

    After our engagement, we knew that the person who would marry us in the most appropriate way would be tough to find. We had numerous cultural, religious, and personal considerations that would make the wedding ceremony quite a toughie.

    We researched and interviewed many different wedding commissioners (celebrants, priests, officiants, ministers, justice of the peace, etc.). Among all of the conversations we'd had, Abegael stood out in many ways, but most importantly, as being the most thoughtful and considerate.

    We could tell right from the beginning that Abegael had the know-how to weave the intricacies of our wedding. We also found out from our initial conversations that she is selective about who she works with, so we crossed our fingers and hoped there was a match (we had other conversations lined up, but we already felt confident that she would be the one for us). Thankfully, the answer came back a Yes on both sides!

    After getting all the agreements in order, it was time to work! Abegael dedicated so much of her time meeting with us to learn about our love story, shared her deep knowledge about celebrations, and we collaborated on putting together a custom ceremony that would bring our story to life. It was a very involved process that took place over several months, but we were so thrilled for it to come together and then for Abegael to add her magical touches to really tie it all together.

    Wedding time. Nerves kick in (not really, but really). Ceremony happens. Wow. Perfect. Magical. Did that just happen? So much fun! So much love!

    After our wedding, we received so many positive comments from the strictest of people who attended our wedding, and we were also asked by more than a few people to refer us to Abegael because they want their children to be married by her.

    I know this is Wedding Wire so the review should probably be limited to this topic, but Life Threads Ceremonies also offers other services for honouring people and places. I have not personally used these services, but if our wedding was any indication, I am confident that Abegael would do just as amazing work in other realms.

    One would truly be lucky if Abegael chose to work with you.

    Alexis and Joshua, beloveds, thank you for inviting me along! As I remarked in telling your Love Story in your wedding, I chose you as soon as we met, and hoped you would choose me too. I was smitten with your passionate commitment to enquery in your relationship. The Six Month Conversation, wow. Working with both of you for almost a year to create your ceremony was a celebrant's dream come true .... coming to completion for all of us on that gorgeous , light filled summer's day in the most perfect of BC venues: the Pemberton Valley. May the light and joy of that day forever be yours.

    Beautiful Unique Special Inspirational Marriage Blessing - Thank you Abagael 💗

    We knew we had a connection as soon as we met Abagael, she was so attentive, kind and encouraging. We appreciated the options and flexibility to incorporate what was important to us. We also found the guidance and assistance helpful. We had so many of our family and friends come up to us afterwards exclaiming how beautiful, unique and special the ceremony was. They loved being so engaged in the process, some were inspired by it to deepen their own bonds. Such a blessing! We recommend Abagael unequivocally. Coreen and Michael

    Thank you for your kind words, Coreen and Michael. It was GREAT to work together creating that amazing personalized ceremony. I am smitten with your love story, your connection with nature, your community... and to top it off - I had the best time with your family afterwards at the reception dinner. Thanks for inviting me to celebrate this gorgeous day with you. And it looks like we'll be together for a few more family celebratory ceremonies...how great is that?

    Very Memorable!

    Abegael made our ceremony memorable by being available at such short notice! She is very kind and had great ideas. She definitely has the experience and helped us decide the ceremony we wanted. She is very personable and respectful of both our background/culture and religion/s that she had great input on how to blend them all together to make an unforgettable moment for us. Our friends and family had great things to say about the ceremony and we definitely recommend her! Thank you, Abegael! :)

    Bettina and Kevin, I loved being your celebrant!.... and didn't we create so much festivity in the retro courtyard at Brix & Mortar? Your wedding was special with the blending of Christian and Buddhist thought, six godparents signing the certificate, and the joyful ringing of 50 bells and chimes and gongs at the end, extraordinary. Best to you two, forever. xo

    Truly Special Day

    From the moment we met with Abegael, we knew we wanted her to be our Celebrant. She had a warmth and intuition that won us over immediately. We are not traditional people, and as such, we were not interested in a run-of-the-mill ceremony.

    After our initial consult, she helped us plan out every detail. She wowed us with her ideas, and creativity Even the things we wouldn't have thought of, she was on top of. She spent time getting to know us, understanding what was important to us and what we value.

    When the big day arrived, there was an unforeseen circumstance that Abegael handled with professionalism, class and skill, and our guests were none-the-wiser. Additionally. Abigail demonstrated her experience though her ability to collaborate, her thoughtfulness and dedication.

    Our guests felt the love, uniqueness and community of our ceremony. They commented on how beautiful it was, and that it was a wonderful reflection of us. Abegael, we can’t thank you enough for our ceremony. It was everything we wanted and more, and we would most definitely recommend Abegael to anyone planning their special day.

    Dear Marc, dear Brian....what an extraordinary & magical wedding we three created! Perfect for such a loving & lovable, crazy expressive, attuned coupla guys as you two. I will always treasure 'our wedding', especially... writing 8 drafts (!) of the ceremonial script together, the Ringwarming sachet heavy with your chosen 13 precious stones, riotous Star Wars themed vows......and of course, standing with both of you in that moment of stillness when everything pauses, and the genius of your love changs the world forever. Honoured to be there with you. Truly.
