    Went above and beyond

    My husband and I truly can’t put into words how amazing Tammy was as our officiant. She went above and beyond for us and was so well organized and prepared. She has such a calming way about her that really helps for a stressed out bride! She did such a beautiful job at the ceremony, and was so accommodating to our personal preferences while also offering us tips and tricks to make it flow smoothly. I would absolutely recommend Tammy to anyone!

    It was so much fun to be a part of a wedding where both families were so lovely, excited and included! Clearly, your marriage meant everything to them Anjella and Taylor. It was easy to make your ceremony special because you two were sooo excited about your big day! A lovely couple, from lovely families made for an incredibly lovely day!!

    A perfect choice

    Tammy did a fantastic job officiating our ceremony! She was professional and organized ahead of time, so we felt well-prepared for the day. She was very great at getting to know us and developing a ceremony that was just the right amount of sentimental for us, and guided us through picking readings and other aspects that we didn't know anything about. She was also very accommodating with our unfortunate rescheduling. I'd highly recommend Tammy!

    Meaningful Ceremonies's reply:

    Stephanie and Ryan it was my pleasure to reschedule right along with you! What a gorgeous day you got for your beautiful outdoor ceremony at Pioneer Cabin. A thoroughly modern bride and groom with your own unique ideas. So happy to create a ceremony that was a fun and sentimental and captured your essence perfectly.

    Tammy was amazing

    Tammy was wonderful to work with, we had been emailing back and forth up until my wedding day, plus she helped us do our ceremony rehearsal. She is definitely amazing.

    Meaningful Ceremonies's reply:

    Vicki and Steven we waited a long time to get to your wedding day! Thank you for taking me along on all your reschedules. I want you to know how much I enjoyed being a part of your wedding day planning - you both have such lovely and calming energy. Vicki you looked so beautiful and Steven's reaction to you coming down the aisle was so heartwarming. I want to wish both you and your 3 sweet little ones all the best. I hope your wedding day was everything you had dreamed.

    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 Great!

    Tammy was so awesome, she made us feel at ease while preparing for our wedding. Gave us a ton of different ceremony choices, and followed through with having our ceremony be non-religious. She was easy to get a hold of, and always ready to answer any questions we had. And best of all, she was SO funny. She had all of our guests laughing and having a great time during the ceremony.

    Meaningful Ceremonies's reply:

    Erika and Tyler - one of my favourite parts being an officiant is customizing a ceremony with input from my couples - creating something that is a true reflection of them. Some want intimate, sweet ceremonies. And it is obvious to me when couples want to laugh and have some fun at their ceremonies - that was you two! I loved the sound of laughter from your guests when I presented your love story - but more than that I loved how much you loved it! A full on laughing bride and groom - you were having so much fun - which made it all so special! Smiling thinking about it :)

    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!

    Just phenomenal!

    Tammy was really amazing! She was always very prepared and made the process of designing our ceremony super easy and straightforward! We were able to choose the readings we wanted and write our own vows. On the day of everything was seamless! We couldn’t ask for a better officiant! I’m so glad Tammy was there for us!

    Meaningful Ceremonies's reply:

    First of all thank you so much for these lovely photos! Your two boys were adorable - love the picture of Caden and Hugh was sweet beyond words. My favourite Sand Ceremony including children ever :). To be part of a ceremony that is so full of love and laughter and family is totally a gift to me. All the very, very best!!

    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!
