    Perfect officiant!

    Cathy was so organized, kind, professional, and did an amazing job tailoring and personalizing our wedding ceremony. We received many compliments from our guests about how great she was and we 100% agree! We would also recommend hiring Cathy for the ceremony rehearsal as she took us through all the details step by step and everyone knew what they were doing perfectly on the day of.

    Beautiful Personalized Ceremony

    We had interviewed a couple officiants and then we met Cathy! She was so sweet, attentive, professional and accommodating, immediately we knew she was the one we wanted to be apart of our special day. Planning a wedding even as small as ours was so stressful but the one thing we didn’t have to worry about was the ceremony. Cathy was so amazing, she took the time to get to know us and incorporated our life and love story in a simple 20 minutes ceremony, everything was personalized! She spoke what was in our hearts…in a way that we weren’t able to express ourselves. The ceremony was the best part of the entire day, something we will never forget. Cathy also made sure we would never forget by gifting a little package which included a booklet of the ceremony. In the future when we decide to renew our vows, Cathy will definitely be the first and only choice! She offered way more than what we could’ve asked for ♥️

    Love Speaks's reply:

    Your simple, intimate Sunday afternoon wedding was a beautiful way for you and Linda to celebrate your love!
    You have a very special love story, now it is everlasting!
    I am deeply grateful for your very kind words, and review Tracy.
    With love,

    Wow wow wow Cathy!

    It was an absolute joy to hear the beautiful words that you put together for our mini-mony. We loved all of the details that you put towards our keepsake box and ceremony booklet that we have shared with loved ones who were not at our wedding. A very heart-felt thank you from both Michael and myself.

    Love Speaks's reply:

    Thank you, Sarah for your beautiful words! You and Michael are a special couple, and having the opportunity of marrying you two was such an honour. There’s a lifetime of happiness was that awaits you two, and I cannot wait to hear what the future brings!
    With love,

    Can't recommend enough

    Cathy is super accommodating, we live 8 hours away in Saskatchewan. We did many meetings over zoom, and she explained EVERYTHING to us.
    Very professional and organized. She will go over every detail she could possibly need (even what colour your wedding party is so she doesn't stand out)

    One of our guests said, "Just when I thought she was about to make me cry, she'd bring me right back in with a good laugh."

    If the price point is scaring you off, Cathy is totally worth it. So worth it that we asked our photographer to take a picture of us together, and we gave her a wedding favor for helping us make our ceremony so perfect 💕

    Love Speaks's reply:

    Thank you for your very kind comments Aspen!
    Choosing the Canmore Nordic Centre for your destination wedding was perfect, and what a beautiful day you had!
    It was an honour to marry you and Lucas.
    I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
    With love,

    Warm, Kind, Engaging

    Cathy was a pleasure to have officiate our wedding. I particularly like the way she wove our story into the celebration - funny, loving and accurate.

    Your ceremony was a perfect reflection of you two - elegant, intimate and uncomplicated!
    Can't wait to see what the future brings for you both!

    Absolutely spectacular!

    We met Cathy via zoom amid the chaos of Covid, and she did not let down. She was and absolute pleasure to work with from day one. When we finally got to meet with Cathy 2 weeks before our wedding to get a glimpse of what our ceremony would look like, she had me falling in love with my husband all over again. She is and incredible story teller, she made us laugh, cry and truly painted the most beautiful picture of our relationship. I would recommend working with Cathy 1000 times over.

    Love Speaks's reply:

    Love you two! I am so grateful for your kind words.
    Truly a magical day - starting with the rain turning to rainbows!
    ... and those shoes!!
    A match made in heaven.
    With love,

    Perfectly personal and heartfelt

    Cathy was so amazing while working with my husband and I on our ceremony. She really made the effort to get to know us both right from our first meeting and then dove deeper throughout the whole process. We feel so honored to have had her do our ceremony. The ceremony she curated was heartfelt, and even our guests could feel it. We had so many compliments from those present in person and even through our video stream! It felt so perfectly us and we are so thankful to have found her. We cherish our booklet which was especially helpful when reading it to my grandparents who couldn't make it/are not tech savvy enough to have watched the stream. It was like they were there with us and gave us the opportunity to relive that magical day.

    Thank you so much Cathy!

    Integral part of our day!

    Cathy is the sweetest officiant, we felt a kinship with her right away. She made our day so comfortable and we were really able to be in the moment. I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant. She knows what she is doing! Thank you so much Cathy for everything!

    August 6 Wedding

    We hired Cathy for our August 6 2022 wedding and she was AMAZING. I had quite a bit of nerves for the ceremony and I confided in Cathy and she made the ceremony EXACTLY what we wanted - short and sweet but also very personal and touching. She has such a calming presence and voice that as soon as I was up there, I felt completely fine and was really enjoying the ceremony. Something that I was quite nervous for ended up being one of the highlights of the day - thanks to Cathy!

    Love Speaks's reply:

    Thank you for your beautiful words Jill! xoxo
    Your wedding was magical, and I was thrilled to marry you and Liam!
    I am so happy your ceremony was exactly what you wanted, and it was my pleasure to make sure it was perfect!
    With love,
