    Monique did an excellent job from the initial first time my wife and I had met her. She was caring, thoughtful and a very good listener. She took time to get to know us and we enjoyed not only chatting with her but hope to continue having a positive and supportive friendship long into the future. She did everything and went above and beyond. Thank you for just being you. You're great and we hope this referral continues to bring you positive business in the future. Cheers! D & J

    Was an amazing experience

    We were very happy with Monique. She met with us and got to know us as people. We got so many compliments on her. People were thrilled that it wasn't her talking at them. They learned more about us through her and everyone loved it. And when a problem arrose with our license she helped us out. We are so grateful for her.

    Monique was a life saver! Chris and I
    Had paid a wedding commissioner from kijiji and 4 days before our event she was nowhere to be found..we posted our trouble in the wedding site and Monique jumped to our rescue on short notice without pay seeing how our money was tied up already! She is such an amazing professional woman ..She made our day and words cannot describe how thankful we are to have met such an amazing person like her and her husband! She was on time and i point with everything 😊 Godbless Monique . We highly recommend her

    Monique was wonderful to deal with from our initial consult where she and her husband helped us draft the marriage license up to and including our wedding day where she delivered a heart felt ceremony. She took the time to get to know us and it really showed when it came time for the ceremony.

    Monique is a very nice, down-to-earth and honest person. We wanted a short, non-religious ceremony and she gave us just that. We had trouble finding meeting times prior to the wedding to discuss the specifics of the ceremony but we were more than happy with Monique's professionalism and her flexibility the day of the wedding.

    Monique Graboski, Lady Commissioner's reply:

    Thank you Chandra for taking the time to write this very positive review. It is very much appreciated. Monique

    Monique was absolutely fantastic! She is very well spoken and professional. She calms you down if you are starting to cry or freak out. Thank you soo much for making our day as special as possible. All of the guests loved her and said that she kept it light and funny just like us! She takes the time to get to know you as a couple and personalizes the ceremony! Monique thank you for being the absolute best!

    Me and my new bride enjoyed Monique's style and personality. We found her very relaxing and felt at ease. We are pleased to also announce that we were her first home backyard ceremony, she offered us the use of her backyard, with indoor plans if need be. Karen
    Monique made us feel at home when we first met her and our conversation was as if we had known each other for quite a while not just meeting, She made us feel so comfortable at the ceremony and even though flowers aren't blooming the background with the trees made it park-like. Tanna

    Thank you both so much! I enjoyed meeting and getting to know both of you.

    Monique is fabulous!!!! I was given her name by someone that used her services in the past and could not say enough good things about their experience.........and it was all true! Our first meeting with Monique was scheduled to be about 1 hour, but we ended up sitting and talking to her for almost 4 hours. She was genuinely interested in getting to know us so that she could personalize our wedding vows like no one else could. She is funny, smart and has such a huge heart. She sent us the vows before hand so that we could look them over and make changes, but when the day came, and she read us our vows..........wow..........we knew our day would be the best ever, but Monique made it extra extra special and personal. To this day, when I read our vows, I burst into tears.....they were perfect!! I highly recommend Monique, I truly believe that there is no one else like her. Thank you Monique for being such an important part of our day.....we will never forget you :-)

    I am deeply touched by this review of your experience with me as your officiant. I thank you from the bottom of my heart! Stay wel and keep in touch. Love Monique
