Our Fairy God Mother
We had planned to get married in July of 2020 but ended up getting married April 11th of 2020 because of Covid-19. Though the process of changing the date was stressful, we view Tammy as our fairy god mother. Without her flexibility, professionalism, and her gigantic heart, we would not have had the most perfect day. From the very beginning, she was so open to our ideas and plans, and when it came to asking her to officiate our new wedding date 2 weeks before the date, she stopped at nothing to ensure our day was perfect.
We cannot recommend Tammy enough; her level of diligence, attention to detail, and professionalism is unmatched by anyone we have ever spoken to.
There will always be a very special place in our hearts for Tammy, she is such a compassionate and loving woman.Sent on 07/05/2020
Meaningful Ceremonies's reply:Shelby and Ryan - I know this Covid-19 thing has really thrown couples for a loop. What I love about your story is how you handled the change from your big summer wedding plans to the winterish day in April.

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!Sent on 13/08/2021
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!

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 06.22.20Sent on 25/06/2020
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!

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.Sent on 08/11/2019
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!Sent on 19/09/2019
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!

I am Wedding Officiant whio has had the pleasure of perfroming Wedding Ceremonies in the Edmonton area for 10+ years.
I have experience performing ceremonies in almost, if not all, of the beautiful Wedding Venues in Edmonton as well as the quaint smaller, more intimate venues. Simple backyard weddings have a place in my heart, too.
Creating Wedding Ceremonies that reflect the feelings and ideas of my couples - from simple to extravagant - is my passion.
I have the BEST job in the whole world and I would love to chat with you about your big day!
