Having chosen a popular date for a summer wedding, with 6 months to go, finding an officiant was no easy task. I used Wedding Wire and messaged a few who showed up on my search. They were either not available, lived too far, or charged too much so when Darlene answered yes, I was ... View more thrilled. Since we live out of province, she was willing to 'meet' us over Skype and discuss her process and the procedure with us. She seemed easy-going yet professional- two qualities which were important to us so we went ahead and put in our deposit to secure the date. Darlene kept in touch by sending us templates of vows as well as a detailed program order. She called me a week before the wedding to follow up and make sure that we were bringing our side of the paperwork. The day of the wedding was a bit hectic (as expected). Darlene was early and brought her son to help her set up her equipment. She had our witnesses sign the paperwork ahead of time so that the process would be complete as soon as the newlyweds signed. Darlene's speech was quick and simple, exactly what we had asked for but some of our attendees remarked that it was perhaps a little too quick. If I could change one thing that would be to make sure that you have a rehearsal (even if it's on the same day) in a quiet space during which both parties are present, focused, and could provide feedback. Darlene dressed appropriately, checking in with what our colours are and what we wanted or did not want her to wear. She answered all of our questions, and followed all our special requests up until the wedding and afterwards. I would highly recommend her for anyone else!

We did not get to meet her until the day before which I'm sure was risky but were so happy that we ...

Rev. Darlene officiated our wedding on July 1st, 2017. We had 65 guests. She was on time and knowing that a group of our guests were running late, offered to wait until they arrived before beginning the ceremony. The ceremony was beautiful and exactly what we wanted.
