    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!

    Exactly what we were looking for

    Marlene was a very responsive and helpful officiant and a pleasure to work with . We wanted to do a small elopement and we were able to get all the details fixed early on and she was very professional during the ceremony. The location is very nice as well!

    I do my best to make every couple feel special. I wish you and your husband the very best in life

    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.

    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 experience with Marlene!

    My husband and I are so grateful that we chose Marlene as our wedding officiant! She was highly responsive during the planning stage and helped coordinate on the day of as well. She went the extra mile by personalizing her officiating speech to make it relatable to our story, and even though my husband and I came from two different backgrounds she was able to do this beautifully. She even asked what the guests would be wearing and was dressed accordingly which really made us feel like she was part of the wedding. 100% would recommend Marlene to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding!

    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!

    Thank you for your beautiful review. It was such a pleasure meeting you and your husband and getting you both married.

    Best day of my life

    Marlene was amazing and extremely helpful throughout the planning process even though it was being navigated through COVID. She knew exactly what we wanted our wedding to be like even before we told her. The entire wedding was far beyond our expectations and she really puts love into her work. If your looking for an amazing wedding experience go to Marlene.
