We had the pleasure of working with Keith for our ceremony. From start to finish the entire experience was phenomenal! Going into this as a first wedding for both my husband and I we were lost, a bit timid, and loaded with questions! When we sat down with Keith he made us feel very comfortable and everything went to smoothly! After a hot cup of tea and a few laughs we were completely distracted with how scary planning a wedding can be! At the ceremony it went better than I could have possibly imagined! I wasn't nervous..I was excited!! Our guests were interested and sharing some good laughs! We had so many people coming up to us saying this was by far the best ceremony they have ever been to! Not being bias beacuase it was my wedding..but I totally agree! So thank you Keith so much for all the hard work, making us feel comfortable, and giving us a ceremony that absolutely no one will forget!

Hi Mariah & Michael. Thank you for your kind words. I had a wonderful time working with both of you and helping take your ceremony vision to a whole new level for the enjoyment of your families and guests. The effort that you put into personalizing your ceremony was evident to all attending and was so greatly appreciated. I will forever have memories of your story about Michael enjoyably riding a garbage can when you first met at work! I'm certain that many guests felt that their ceremony experience at your wedding was every bit the equal of and complement to Stonefields' magnificent property and their awesome service. I look forward to seeing you again sometime, perhaps at one of your friends ceremonies. Best wishes, Lynne & Keith

After reading a lot of positive reviews, we reached out to Keith and Lynne to help us with our ceremony. It was Keith who became our officiant, and he did an amazing job! If you want your run of the mill (boring) ceremony, then you might want to look elsewhere. The ceremony Keith and Lynne have developed over the years is incredible and very unique. Enter the discussions with an open mind, with the expectation that the ceremony isn't just for the bride and groom, but also for the wedding party and the guests! We had all the stops in our ceremony, and it lasted 50 minutes! However, all my guests told me that they were shocked when they saw the time, everything thought it had been only 15-20 minutes long. It was a fantastic ceremony where the guests, wedding party, and definitely the bride and groom just had an amazing and memorable time. We would definitely, 100%, recommend Exceptional Ceremonies for anyone who wants to have a memorable and fun ceremony.

Thank you Rob and Bailey for these kinds words. I had a great time working with both of you on your love-fest. While not every couple chooses to include all of the many innovative options that you did, we still ensure that their families and guests will remember their ceremony as the very best that they've ever attended. I can't wait to see some of the awesome photos that Linda Borrego of Black Lamb was able to take during your unplugged ceremony.

We really enjoyed our visits with Keith and all his input regarding our special day. He was easy to work with and answered any questions that we had. He made our day so very special. We are still getting comments on how much everyone enjoyed our ceremony😊

Lynne did an amazing job as our officiant. She is so warm and welcoming and funny and gave us great options for our script. We are very happy with how everything went! We received many compliments from our guests regarding Lynne and the ceremony.

Great ceremony & rehearsal
Keith and Lynne had great ideas for our ceremony to keep it fun and engaging, just as we wanted, and made it easy for us to both write our own vows. We didn't know anything about how to do so and they helped us through it easily. During the rehearsal and ceremony Lynne made sure that everything went right and everyone was well prepared.

Amazing, wonderful and unique
Keith, was everything I could have asked for an more. My husband and I wanted a unique personal touch to our wedding ceremony and we got just that, It was romantic and funny and really made me feel comfortable in the process of saying I Do. We only heard GREAT things from our guests and we really loved that it was different but was made to be our own.
We highly recommend Keith!

An amazing and unique ceremony
We had a great experience with Lynne Langille for our wedding ceremony and we would recommend her in a heart beat! She was very professional, she listened so well to our views of the ceremony and so easy to work with. A lot of our guests told us that it was the most beautiful ceremony they have seen, everyone loved her!

My husband and our family was blown away by what we were able to pull off in such a short amount of time, and were very impressed Keith's services, professionalism, suggestions, value and sense of humour added to our vows.
We were able to book Keith with less than 48 notice, and putting all trust in him from where to wed, to what to say was the best decision we could have made.
My Dad's wife made a comment after the fact that we somehow managed to hire "the man" turns they have a reputation for being the best in Ottawa! She tried to book them last year for their wedding based on several referrals though were booked solid. (Understandably)
I was most impressed with how you Keith made a part of planning that gave me anxiety truly stress free, and I am so happy to work with someone with such a great level of experience in the "how to's" of eloping. The Arboretum was an excellent suggestion and I am so happy with how beautiful the area is, though how lovely our photos turned out as result.

Keith is an amazing officiant and person. I don't think it's possible for my husband and I to express how thankful we are that we decided to have him officiate our wedding this past September.
He was professional and personable through the entire process leading up to our wedding, and the scripts that he provides as a framework for his ceremonies make the process incredible simple and stress-free.
I would be amiss not to mention that Keith also went above and beyond what we hired him for.
My father was rushed in for emergency surgery just two weeks before our wedding had been planned. As the day approached, it became increasingly clear that my dad would not be able to make it to our wedding. I was crushed, and reached out to Keith in hopes that he might be available earlier in the day to officiate our wedding by my dad's hospital bed. I wasn't sure if he would be available, and had only asked if he might be willing to move up our schedule to do this favour for us. I planned to ask my brother to preform a symbolic ceremony at our venue for our guests at the time we originally decided upon. The invites had long before been sent out, and I knew our ability to be flexible was very limited...
Keith replied to my request in a way I did not expect. He agreed to come and officiate a ceremony at my dad's bedside in the hospital, and also told us that he would still officiate a ceremony for our guests like we had originally planned... It seemed that it wasn't even a question for him. He was relatable, and kind, and I really felt like he understood what was going on in my head and heart during a deeply difficult time.
I am forever indebted to his compassion and willingness to go above and beyond for my family. Honestly, you will not find a better person to make your marriage a beautiful memory. There is a reason Keith and Lynne are consistently voted on the top for the service they provide.
Thank you, so very much Keith. You're a gem, and we will always recommend you to anyone looking for an officiant!

We had a small ceremony a few weeks ago, and I'm so happy with how it went.
Prior to the ceremony we were given multiple options for how the ceremony would go/what would be said, and we really appreciated being able to make the choices. The day of was great, our families loved the ceremony and thought Keith was wonderful! Keith is such a natural at what he does, and the ceremony exceeded any expectation I had!
