    An Outstanding Officiant

    Deb is one of a kind; an absolutely wonderfully special woman to guide you on your journey through a huge milestone together with your partner.
    She was exceptional on so many accounts throughout the entire process covering the ceremony, logistics, and legalities.
    The vast set of material she has to allow you and your partner to create the perfect ceremony for you two is fabulous.
    There is no other person that we would have wanted to have by our side before, during, and after for an officiant. You can rest assured that you will be comfortable, safe, and genuinely have fun working with Deb.

    Rev. Deborah Coleman's reply:

    Thank you so much Jon and Kenzie for your great review! Right from your initial inquiry through the entire process, it was my real pleasure to work with you to help you create the perfect wedding ceremony for you. I am truly honoured to have been part of your special day. You are wonderful people and as a couple, you are unstoppable. There is a bright and loving future in store for you. All the best ~ Deb

    Outstanding Job!

    Rev. Deb was the most professional, organized, and enjoyable wedding vendor to work with of all our vendors the entire wedding. She consistently went above and beyond to make sure we were heard and felt at ease. The ceremony service went incredibly smoothly without a hitch, and it felt perfectly personal to us. Would highly recommend! (Photography by Emerald & Fox Photo)

    Rev. Deborah Coleman's reply:

    I love seeing the pictures you posted. They brought back memories of a terrific day with a very loving couple. The joy and love you both wore on your wedding day was very reflective of the best you bring out in each other. It was my great pleasure to be the one who "tied the knot" May your future unveil all your hopes, wishes and dreams. ~ Deb

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Amazing and Friendly

    Reverend Deb was such a delight to have as an officiant. She was witty, funny and knew how to get the crowd involved. I chose Reverend Deb because she was my sisters officiant 8 years ago but I was delighted to see her as a preferred vendor at my venue. Great communication and helped with the process and nerves of our big day. Highly recommend!

    Rev. Deborah Coleman's reply:

    Thank you so much Brianne! I am so glad you were pleased with your ceremony. Your wedding was just beautiful and was truly a celebration of love and joy. Your family and friends were just wonderful. I wish you both every happiness in your future.
