We were looking for an officiant on wedding wire for our Wedding July 2019. We came across Mary, she had such great reviews. We live pretty far away from our venue so she met with us over skype which was great. Once we met her we knew knew we had found our officiant. Mary is so friendly, very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour, our family and friends loved her. She wrote such a beautiful ceremony and even helped with our vows when we got a little stuck. I would 100% recommended Mary to anyone!Sent on 14/08/2019
Rev. Mary McCandless ~ Four Seasons Celebrations, Wedding Officiant's reply:It was the best of times! How perfect you are for each other. I was so pleased to be included on such a special day. I began getting goosebumps during the rehearsal. A definite sign. Wishing you endless blessings and joy. Lots of love, M*

Mary is so wonderful! Highly recommend!
Mary was a delight to work with right from the very first time we contacted her. She made our wedding ceremony so special and worked with us to create a ceremony that was exactly what we were looking for! Mary was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the whole planning process! She even sent us a congratulations card after the wedding which was a lovely surprise! Thank you Mary for making our day so special!Sent on 10/11/2018
A Ceremony of Peace and Love:-)
We found Mary through a mutual friend, and oh what a special find she was! As soon as we walked into Mary’s place, we both felt at peace. The positive energy and the warmth was very welcoming. As a same sex couple wanting to get married on our 20th anniversary, we wanted to make sure we found someone who made us feel comfortable and worthy of this special union. The ceremony was peaceful with a special spiritual feeling that we had never experienced before. We have both had a glow about us ever since. Thank you so much Mary for helping us celebrate our love in such a special way. You are amazing!

A Wonderful Ceremony by a Wonderful Officiant
We were truly blessed to have found Mary to officiant our wedding. She was nothing short of amazing. She is so kind and patient. We had an idea of how we wanted the ceremony to go and she ensured it was accommodated. We had her for our rehearsal and she prepared us for the day, which took a little bit of the nerve away. My now husband and I feel very grateful that we had Mary officiant our wedding.Sent on 18/07/2018

Mary preformed our wedding ceremony on June 30th at the Cobourg golf course. She made our ceremony absolutely perfect! We received SO many comments from our family and friends on how beautiful our ceremony was – the words were meaningful, and sincere. It was everything we could have wished for and more!
Thank you Mary!🌸Sent on 11/08/2018
Rev. Mary McCandless ~ Four Seasons Celebrations, Wedding Officiant's reply:Krissy, I loved how you personalized your ceremony to really capture your adventures in living together....all the way to "something brewed". Your arrival by horse drawn carriage was a sight to behold and nothing could dampen the spirit of love that surrounded you. Congratulations! Long may love reign. Love, M*

I still can't believe our luck in finding Mary on this website after our original plan fell through. From the very first email until hugging her as a married couple after our ceremony, our experience with Mary was exemplary. During the lead-up months she guided us wisely, with care and gentle humour, and put us completely at ease then and on the day. We were both quite nervous the morning of, but as soon as Mary appeared she instilled a sense of calm and joy. Our family and friends have said to us many times that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to, and much of this was due to Mary. She made everyone feel welcome and loved. I would highly recommend her to any couple embarking on this exciting adventure. :)Sent on 12/03/2019
Rev. Mary McCandless ~ Four Seasons Celebrations, Wedding Officiant's reply:Thanks so much for sharing your experience. I absolutely LOVED it. How wonderful that you have found each other at this point in your lives. The setting, the flowers, couldn't have been more perfect, complete with the little lambs with pink bows. And to discover we had mutual friends, was really the icing on the cake for me. Continue to celebrate the love that you have found in each other, I will. Thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of it.

Our day was magical - all we dreamed it would be
I can't imagine a more perfect day - surrounded by loved ones, celebrating our wedding.
Mary included special little touches that only we would understand but also helped us find readings and ideas to let our guests know how important they were to us. Mary took the time to guide us through every step of the ceremony, asking questions we hadn't considered and when the day arrived we didn't have to worry about how thing would unfold - it was all taken care of. So many of our guests have complimented us on our wedding and especially our ceremony as the best they had attended - and Mary had so much to do with that.Sent on 20/07/2018
Rev. Mary McCandless ~ Four Seasons Celebrations, Wedding Officiant's reply:Roxanne, it was indeed a magical day for me as well. I love the great care you took with your wedding to make it special and meaningful for everyone who attended, as well as for yourselves. And, the setting couldn't have been more perfect for two who love books and hang on every word. I wish you endless blessings, with great love, Rev. M*

Let Mary Marry You.
Mary was wonderful from start to finish. We were planning a last minute ceremony and she was so accommodating. She was even able to suggest a beautiful ceremony spot that fit my vision. Her focus is purely on love. She is warm, kind, and will personalize your day to make it feel like she’s known you both for years. Highly recommend!Sent on 22/04/2018
Rev. Mary McCandless ~ Four Seasons Celebrations, Wedding Officiant's reply:Angela, it was an absolute pleasure to help make your day all that you wanted it to be! I thought it was a perfect place and regardless of the weather outside, inside it was filled with warmth, love and absolute joy. I loved it! I wish you endless blessings. Much love, M*

Mary has a magical touch!
Mary was outstanding. She really took the time to get to know us and listened to everything we said and that was reflected so beautifully in the ceremony. My husband and I are from very different cultures and religious backgrounds and she made wonderful suggestions to incorporate pieces of both and she blended it all so well. All of our guests (and us!!) commented on how beautiful and meaningful the ceremony was - that was all Mary. She is so loving, sweet and unimposing. Throughout the entire process (from the first meeting to the wedding), she let us shine - she even stood to the side and had us face our guests during the ceremony. She really emphasized that it was all about us. Having said that, our wedding was made so much more special because of Mary - her style, her words, her gentle nature and professionalism are second to none. It was as if we knew her all our lives and we asked her to officiate as a dear friend. She has such depth of intuition that it took her no time at all to understand what was important to us. I would absolutely recommend Mary as your officiant - she will far exceed your expectations and will become a dear friend. She contributed so much to our day and to the experience of our guests! We loved her!Sent on 10/07/2018
Rev. Mary McCandless ~ Four Seasons Celebrations, Wedding Officiant's reply:Alka, thank you so much for sharing your experience. I thought it was brilliant from start to finish. I loved how you blended your traditions! So meaningful! The time I spent with you prior to the wedding, I cherish. Your enthusiasm for life and the love you share is contagious. I continue to wish you the very best in life. Love to "what's his name".
