    Great Professional Service

    Deborah was terrific! She was so prompt and professional. She knows her "stuff" and even helped us with fine details. At the ceremony she was well heard (we didn't have a mic and she rocked it). thanks Deb!

    Rev. Deborah Coleman's reply:

    Absolutely my pleasure. Thanks so much for being so fun and so easy to work with. I wish you both every happiness, filled with much love and exciting adventures.

    Beautiful ceremony

    Deb did such an amazing job with our ceremony and personalized it to a T. We couldn’t have been happier!

    Thank you so much Heather! Working with you and Kevin to help create your personalized ceremony was such a pleasure. You are such a wonderful couple and your love for each other is very evident. I wish you both every happiness in your future.

    We are so lucky to have hired Deborah!

    One of the best decisions my husband and I made was hiring Deborah to be our officiant. From our first meeting, we knew that she was the right fit for us. Her positive energy and joyfulness made us instantly comfortable. She walked us through all of the legal requirements and we felt supported through the entire process. On our wedding day, she was absolutely fabulous, her warmth and happiness helped us relax. She was the perfect balance of sentimental and making us laugh. Our family and friends also remarked how great she was, rave reviews all around! She let us completely customize our ceremony and integrated Jewish traditions in a modern way!

    Thank you, Deborah!

    Rev. Deborah Coleman's reply:

    Hello Stephanie & Ben. Thank you for such a great review. It was such a pleasure working with you on your wedding ceremony. Your love for each other is obvious and palpable and a great joy to witness and celebrate. Blending traditions and families was a great delight for me and I am so glad you and your guests were pleased.
    I wish for you a bright, joyous, long, loving future.

    Incredibly Lovely

    Rev. Deborah was nothing short of amazing. From the first moment we met her, we knew she was the right fit for our wedding. Rev. Deb brought love, humour and professionalism to our wedding ceremony that far exceeded our expectations. We had family members telling us right away how amazing she was, and that it was the best ceremony they've ever seen. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!

    Rev. Deborah Coleman's reply:

    You are most welcome. I am so pleased your expectations were exceeded. The two of you were such a pleasure to work with during your planning stage, your rehearsal and of course your wedding ceremony. I wish you both a bright, loving, joyous future.

    Warm and Kind

    We did not need to meet any other Officient when we met Deborah. She has calm presence and is highly knowledgeable. She made organizing a ceremony very easy. She understood immediately when we wanted a non-christian wedding but needed to make my husband's Christian family happy. She was able to find wonderful compromises that still made our ceremony about us.

    Rev. Deborah Coleman's reply:

    Thank you so much ~ I enjoyed working with you to help make your ceremony and wedding day just perfect. I wish you both every happiness and a lifetime of love and joy.

    Upon meeting Deborah for the first time, we booked her, without bothering to meet with anyone else and that is because she was so warm and kind and gave us a good vibe. She is so relaxing when she speaks and has great presence. So needless to say we were so pleased we went with our instinct and had Deborah perform our ceremony. She provides different reading packages but then allows you to make them your own - combine, add, eliminate anything. Which is nice because we weren't sure where to begin. We picked what we liked from a variety of her readings and then added things we found on our own and it all sounded smooth the day of. Our ceremony was short, sweet and beautiful, exactly what we wanted and Deborah helped make that happen!

    Beyond amazing!

    There is no one better suited to be a wedding officiant than Rev Deb. She is absolutely phenomenal. She understood who we were as individuals, who we are as a couple and gave space (and encouragement) to make our ceremony completely and utterly "us." She was excellent with our family and friends at the rehearsal and did an absolutely amazing job at our ceremony. We loved her and our guests loved her and it was just perfect. Both my husband and I highly recommend Rev Deb!

    Rev. Deborah Coleman's reply:

    Thank you so much for the great review. It was indeed my honour and privilege (and great fun) to meet you and your family ~ After getting to know you it was easy to see why you fell in love with each other. You are so strong together and I wish you a long, loving, bright future.

    A beautiful ceremony

    We were absolutely thrilled to work with Deborah.
    Her warmth, professionalism and clarity through the whole process made us SO happy to have found her.

    She provided all of the necessary materials to help us put together a ceremony that was heartfelt, meaningful, personal and fun. Major points for making our guests laugh AND cry! :)

    Our day was that much more memorable thanks to Rev. Deb. Highly, highly recommend her services.

    Rev. Deborah Coleman's reply:

    Our experience with Rev. Deb was excellent, she was so upbeat, cheerful and pleasant to deal with. Rev. Deb is highly experienced, a wealth of knowledge and gave us confident about our wedding day and how the ceremony would go. Rev. Deb is easily reached via email and even called on the day before the wedding to check-in. She has many ceremony options to offer, with the ability to personalize as you wish. We would highly recommend Rev. Deb to family and friends.
