    Our ceremony was perfect!

    Tammy was incredible! She was very helpful and flexible in allowing us to customize our ceremony to make it personal and super meaningful. She provided us resources to look at and we were able to write our own parts as well. Our ceremony was perfect because of how great a job Tammy did!

    Meaningful Ceremonies's reply:

    Thanks so much Sydney! It is always such a pleasure for me to perform ceremonies with unique touches! I loved how much fun you and Jesse were having. The joy you were experiencing was written all over your face!
    Want to wish you both the very, very best :)

    Tammy is a beautiful soul who makes you feel as if you have known her for a lifetime.

    Tammy is a beautiful soul who makes you feel as if you have known her for a lifetime. We met once on zoom, and then in person 15 mins before the ceremony and we could not have been in better hands or felt more comfortable on our big day. Tammy created a truly magical ceremony for us and we are over the moon! Her calm and comforting energy is just what couple's need as they say I do.

    Meaningful Ceremonies's reply:

    I remember something special about almost every ceremony I perform. Sarah and Michael I loved your story. A true love story. Each other's first love, then life took you separate ways, then the power of love brought you back together. Your vows said it all;
    I loved you back then, I love you now, and I'll love you forever.
    Incredibly, incredibly romantic. So honoured to be a small part of your journey.

    Wonderful!

    Tammy was great! You could tell she had experience behind her and really knew what she was doing. She was quick to make suggestions that she felt would help make the ceremony run smoother. She was amazing! A great mix of humour, emotion, and seriousness that we wanted for our ceremony. I would highly recommend Tammy. She is also very reasonably priced.

    Meaningful Ceremonies's reply:

    Your wedding at the Derrick was just so lovely! A perfect fall day, complimented by a beautiful bride and handsome groom.
    It was so obvious how much you and Sheldon were enjoying every minute. I, too, loved the combination of laughter and super sweet moments. Your vows and his reaction. His vows and you reaction.
    Hoping your whole wedding day was everything you dreamed!

    Beautiful ceremony

    Tammy was amazing to work with. She was super flexible and gave us the option to customize our ceremony. She was very responsive and easy to work with. She made our day very special!

    Meaningful Ceremonies's reply:

    Marissa and Nicholas - your backyard ceremony was just so lovely. Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE dogs in weddings and Finn the fur- ring bearer did an excellent job! Top it off with your heartfelt vows and it all seemed perfect. Grateful to be part of it!

    Personalized Ceremony

    Tammy was amazing to work with. She was so helpful in providing us with the tools to create our customized wedding ceremony that was special to us. Even as we managed the uncertainty of Covid-19, Tammy continued to ensure us she would be with us on June 22 to marry us. This was a huge relief as there was no many changes and uncertainty leading up to the big day. She was very personable, friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Tammy as she made the entire experience so easy and personal to us. She is a wonderful, caring person, who looks to ensure your wedding is exactly what you want and captures the couple. Thank you again Tammy for all your guidance and support. ~ Anders & Lindsay MacPherson 06.22.20

    Meaningful Ceremonies's reply:

    What a beautiful day it turned out to be! Lindsay, your vintage wedding dress was so unique and it suited you to perfection. I loved how you had turned the backyard into a colourful oasis complete with a babbling brook. You and Anders standing in the middle of it all saying your vows - wow! One of my favourite parts of the ceremony was when your adoring dad brought you to Anders. Summer 2020 has brought some challenges - but intimate, beautiful, meaningful ceremonies still reign! Thank you for making me a part of yours. All the very, very best to you both!

    Excellent Officiant!

    Tammy was kind, clear, and made planning our entire ceremony easy and enjoyable. The whole process of wedding planning can be overwhelming, but she really eased our minds. She did a lovely job when it came to the actual ceremony. If I ever get married again (haha) I'll call her.

    Meaningful Ceremonies's reply:

    The thing I loved about your ceremony most is when your sweet little guy, Dawson joined us at the front to be with his Mommy and Daddy just as they were saying their vows! What great photos that would make. Your ceremony was simple and sweet and really felt like the two (three) of you :). Thank you for choosing me to be a part of this special moment in your lives. PS - wedding officiants are never looking for repeat business ha! ha!

    Tammy @ meaningful ceremonies

    I’m so glad we hired Tammy as our officiant. She took all the stress out of the ceremony and had great ideas for us. We really had no idea where to start with a ceremony, but Tammy took care of everything. I can’t recommend her enough!

    Meaningful Ceremonies's reply:

    Thanks so much Kelsey and Kevin! What a beautiful day at Hastings Lake Gardens. Turns out I knew some of your family, which is always sweet for me :). It was so fun to tell your love story, too. All the very best to you both!

    The best ceremony

    The ceremony was always the part of the whole wedding that mattered the most to me and Tammy made it amazing. I loved the little love story she told of us and the personal touches that made the ceremony totally customized to us. It was perfect.

    Meaningful Ceremonies's reply:

    Alicia and Siby - I LOVE when the ceremony is the most important part of the wedding day! Such a gorgeous setting at Hastings Lake Garden, Siby and your sweet vows, your thoroughly modern wedding party - the story about Siby's love of your fur baby, Gucci. All of it was such a reflection fo the two of you. Loved it!

    Tammy Was Fantastic

    Tammy did a great job of preparing my husband and I for our big day. She talked us through all of the steps and even made recommendations for the live musician at our ceremony. Her ability to make us feel very comfortable, and confident that our day would go off without a hitch, was immediately apparent. Tammy was fantastic, and we would highly recommend her to any of our closest friends and family!

    Meaningful Ceremonies's reply:

    Kate and Cory your Ft Edmonton Ceremony was so lovely! The simplicity of just the three of us standing at the front in that historic church - so memorable. I loved when the doors opened and Kate was standing there ready to come down the aisle - gorgeous!
