    Stunning personalised ceremony

    Everyone who witnessed our ceremony was moved and touched by the uniqueness and intimacy of it. Pascale whipped up magic for us, and created a moment that will live with us forever. I can't say enough how much I would recommend her to other engaged coupled looking for an officiant.

    We love Pascale!

    We were introduced to Pascale Charbonneau by Katherine Barr as she was unable to officiate our ceremony due to scheduling conflicts. We're so grateful that Katherine connected us with Pascale because we had an amazing experience with her as well! We're from Vancouver and planned our wedding to be across the country in Montreal. We communicated with Pascale through email and Skype and it was always a breeze communicating back and forth with her. We had two Skype sessions with her prior to the ceremony and she took the time to get to know us as a couple and our story.

    Our first time meeting her in person was at our ceremony and she exceeded our expectations! Many of our guests have told us how engaging, charismatic, and beautiful she made the ceremony! A lot of the unmarried and married couples even said that things that she mentioned about love and commitment, they could even apply it to their current relationship and marriage! When thinking of a little ritual we could do during the ceremony, Pascale introduced us to the idea of a wine box. Guests told us afterwards how it was such a unique and special idea. It also inspired a lot of couples to start a wine box for their own anniversaries!

    We both completely agree with everyone. It was better than we could have imagined. Pascale is so natural, full of love, positivity and happiness, and was completely engaging the entire time. Everything that she mentioned throughout the ceremony was so similar to our vows and how we are as a couple/individuals. The ceremony was totally and naturally us! For 2 people that don't normally like to be the centre of attention, she made us feel so comfortable. Nothing was forced, every feeling and moment was genuine. I can't believe we only spoke through Skype two times before that because it felt like she had known us forever!

    We are so happy Pascale was our officiant for the wedding. She set the mood and feeling for the rest of the day, there was so much love felt! Thank you so much Pascale for being who you are and making our day so special! We highly recommend :)

    Very pleased!

    We were comfortable with Pascale throughout the entire process. She was very clear and detailed in communicating what was needed for things to go as smoothly as possible. The day of the wedding, her calm and warm demeaner made it feel like the ceremony was being given by an old friend. We received many compliments about the service from our guests. Thank you so much!

    Excellent Experience with Pascale Charbonneau

    Pascale Charbonneau was an absolute delight to work with! My husband and I are from Toronto, Ontario and were not going to be in Quebec until the day of our wedding. We were easily able to coordinate with Pascale over Facetime/Email/Telephone which made the experience much smoother than we ever could have imagined!

    We immediately felt a positive vibe from Pascale, and we could not wait to have her officiate our wedding! She was extremely kind, had a sense of humor, and was very easy going. She brought tears to people's eyes during our ceremony with her words, and our guests are still in awe over how incredible she was. She made the experience extremely personable and was full of wonderful ideas. We have a box where we are now keeping our vows so my husband and I can renew them each year on our anniversary. We thought this was so sweet, and would give us a chance to bring back the memories of our special day.

    We would highly recommend Pascale to anyone! We feel extremely blessed to have had her as our officiant. It is truly a day we will never forget!

    Thank you Pascale! :)

    Merveilleuse cérémonie à notre image

    Nous sommes plus qu’heureux que Pascale Charbonneau ait célébré notre union. Elle a si bien compris qui nous sommes et ce qui nous uni que nos invités ont cru que nous lui avions donné son discours! Elle a su être rassurante, très à l’écoute et a contribué grandement à rendre notre mariage un moment merveilleux que nous n’oublierons jamais. Merci ❤️
