    Amazing Officiant!

    We made the decision to have a family member officiate our wedding, however Joanne was there to support and make it official the day of for the signing of the license. She was amazing through the process from beginning to end, providing support to us and our family member who ran the ceremony. Communication was fantastic, and we knew we were in great hands from the get go. Highly reccomend!

    It was my absolute pleasure and honour.

    Beautiful, inclusive, personalized ceremony

    Joanne was amazing to work with from start to finish. She really took the time to get to know us as a couple and create a ceremony that was so personal and beautiful to us. It was important to me that we work with someone who runs an inclusive business and Joanne does just that! She focuses on love and partnership and on customizing every piece of the ceremony. Thank you Joanne for creating the most loving service I have ever heard! ❤️

    The Best Day of My Life

    Joanne was always so helpful with the whole process and was always there to answer any questions I or my husband had before, during, and even after the wedding.

    I was told by guests that our ceremony was nothing like they had ever been too and it was so great to hear that. The readings were beautiful and she was able to have everyone apart of the wedding and everyone attending the wedding engaged the entire time.

    Thank you for being a part of the best day of my life.

    The BEST officiant!

    We were delighted to have Joanne officiate our wedding. After meeting her, it was clear that she cared deeply about making our ceremony unique and memorable.

    Joanne took the time to get to know us, which helped us create a intimate and personalized wedding ceremony. My husband really wanted us to write our own vows, but I was nervous. Joanne's advice and encouragement were very much appreciated. She also allowed us to incorporate humour into our ceremony. I am a big fan of the Bachelor. She didn't even blink when we asked her say: "Like a sledgehammer, your love should break down walls". She delivered the line like an absolute pro! The ceremony was perfect. We continue to receive compliments from our guests.

    From the moment you meet her, you know that Joanne is very experienced and personable. We were lucky to have her guiding us through the most important day our lives. We highly recommend her!

    Dearest Lindsay and Ian,
    Thank you so much. Your words touch my heart.
    Blessings for a Lifetime of Happiness Together!

    The most wonderful wedding officiant!!!

    Joanne brought a beautiful warmth and joy to our hand fasting, her services are well above and beyond and her role in our hand fasting is as much a fond memory as the rest of it. Her suggestions were incredibly helpful as she helped us shape our handfasting, she helped explain what needed explaining, smoothed the wrinkles and made sense of it all to our guests all the while making them and us smile. I couldnt recomend her services more highly. Warm regards and thank you again for everything Joanne, you're the best!

    Thank you so much!
    Conner and Ashley!

    Wedding on the Dock of the Bay

    Words cannot express how special she made our wedding day. With Covid we had to move the dates 4 times and never once did she mind. Frank and I are not religious but very spiritual and her energy matched ours from the very beginning. Her ceremony that she created for us was more than we could have imagined. It captured everything important to us, the air, the water, laughter, friendship and most of all love. It was a perfect day and our souls will never be the same. Thank you.

    Rev. Joanne DeGasperis - Wedding officiant's reply:

    Dearest Tanya and Frank,

    Thank you so much for your very beautiful words and feelings.
    It was my absolute pleasure.

    Blessings for a Lifetime of Happiness Together!
