    Short & Sweet

    This was the most perfect short and sweet ceremony! Marlene was very professional and helpful throughout the entire process from booking a date, decorations and allowing me to get ready at her Airbnb! Our day was stress free and the house and property are absolutely beautiful! Marlene definitely went above and beyond our expectations!

    Beyond Expectations

    We reached out to Marlene when we decided to postpone our religious ceremony to a later date but still wanted to get married in the spring. Not only was she very responsive and follow up quickly, but she also wore multiple hats, including officiant, and wedding planner. She was very understanding and worked with our budget. She was also very accommodating, as when Ontario put in their 4 week lockdown in April 2021, she was very understanding and allowed us to move it to a few weeks later.

    The ceremony itself was very beautiful and she did a wonderful job officiating. She was also able to say a few words in Spanish during the ceremony, which meant a lot to my now wife.

    The venue itself was very exquisite, with the barn and the vineyards in the background.

    We can't thank Marlene enough for making our day exceptional!

    Thank you for your beautiful review. You are both awesome. I got to know the two of you and your family and thank you for the boxed lunch which I thoroughly enjoyed. I wish you and your wife only the best in life.

    Best day ever!!

    Planning a wedding in a week was kinda impossible, but Marlene made it possible for us. Very approachable and fast responsiveness. All the things we asked for was perfectly executed. The place was so gorgeous, so many compliments from our guests. Foods were fantastic as well. Couldn’t have the perfect intimate wedding without Marlene’s help. ❤️

    Amazing Wedding!

    Marlene was nothing short of professional and excellent to work with, especially during these hard covid times! Planning a wedding in the middle of a pandemic was not easy in the slightest! Everything we had set in stone pre-covid was torn down, so I reached out a few months before our wedding as a last minute decision as we could not have our giant party as planned. She was amazing! She was so responsive, answered any questions I had, she was easy to work with and had so many ideas. We had a set budget and she worked with that, even put a little more into it than I had expected. She made everything so beautiful for the day of, it could not have been a more perfect, intimate ceremony!

    Thank you Rebecca
    You and Brett were such an awesome couple and so easy to work with. Thank you for giving me the opportunity and I wish you both great success and happiness in your married life.

    Wonderful, kind, friendly and flexible!

    I had a wonderful experience with Marlene Gallyot for my wedding ceremony. She was extremely helpful in the planning and executing of my picture perfect day.
    She was very flexible and understanding, and helped me plan everything from flowers, to cake and more. She gave us a variety of options to suit our interest and budget.
    Her location with a small chapel is so sweet and charming, and she has lovely decorations to accompany the beautiful scenery. It is very charming and intimate.
    Although we planned everything fairly quickly, Marlene did an amazing job planning and decorating. When it came to our day, everything was just perfect!
    She communicated clearly with us, and we felt like we were always on the same page.
    I would absolutely recommend having an event at her location!

    Beautiful Wedding

    We wanted a small outdoor wedding with all the classic wedding touches. We are so grateful to Marlene for the incredible job she did. We met with Marlene and gave her an idea of what we wanted colors etc. From there she took care of everything down to the bouquets and boutonnieres. The outdoor wedding in a vineyard setting was so romantic. The meal was just delicious. The dinner was set in a brand new barn that was decorated so beautifully. We both found Marlene very accommodating professional and friendly. If you are looking for a officiant/planner/location all in one place you would be in very capable hands. Thank you again Marlene for a day we will always remember.

    A beautiful Officiant and Ceremony

    Marlene gave my new husband and I the most beautiful ceremony on Sept 26/20. She was so kind to us and gave us a beautiful ceremony which included a piper, cake and champagne. Her flowers and grounds were spectacular! We will be forever grateful she was able to marry us safely during this time of Covid. She will remind in our hearts forever. Lori & Jim Kay

    Marlene is a life saver!

    Marlene was absolutely amazing with helping us with our wedding. We had to reschedule it and replan a wedding in 3 weeks due to Covid and she was so responsive and helpful from the get go. She did an amazing job performing our ceremony. She went above and beyond and let us use her property for the ceremony and she even decorated it for us. 2 days before our wedding was a goth/ Halloween themed wedding and she absolutely transformed the space! She was so kind and supportive through the whole thing and really eased my mind.

    Emily, thank you for your beautiful review. I had so much fun officiating for you and was such a pleasure to work with you. I wish you and Matt only the best in your marriage and thanks for the blanket. So very kind.

    Above-and-beyond

    From our very first point of contact to our wedding day, Marlene went above and beyond to make our day exactly what we wanted it. We used her AirBnB to get ready, the beautiful vineyard as the backdrop to our wedding ceremony, and the on-site event barn for our 30-person reception. In the planning stages, Marlene took the collection of photos we compiled as inspiration and brought it all to life and coordinated the amazing catering and staffing. It's evident that she's been doing this for many years!

    Marlene has a huge collection of wedding decor and materials to complement the theme of anyone's wedding as she certainly did with ours. She took care of everything from the reception table settings, to our ceremony altar and surrounding decor. Some of my favourite items that Marlene supplied were the champagne wall, the rustic wine barrels used throughout the reception space, and the LED "Mr. & Mrs." sign that was set up above our sweetheart table.

    All in all, I cannot thank Marlene enough for making our day nothing short of perfect!

    Michelle you and your husband were such amazing people and so easy to work with. I enjoyed every minute of your wedding from start to finish and truly appreciate your kindness.
