About Rev Rachelle
Rev. Rachelle Foster is a non-denominational legal Officiant based in Toronto, who offers personalized wedding ceremonies, ranging from traditional to non-traditional. She believes your wedding ceremony ought to be a reflection of who you are as a couple. It is a way of expressing your love and devotion to one another in your own unique way. Rev. Rachelle has three basic types of service; just the paperwork, elopements and full weddings.
Rev. Rachelle is approachable and open-minded. She has one goal in mind; to provide a meaningful and memorable experience for you and your guests. She also offers commitments/pledges ceremonies (spiritually binding, not legal), which are based upon the established wedding packages.
Full wedding service includes personalization of the ceremony, help with finding/writing vows, and assistance with figuring out the logistics of ceremony itself within various venues. Rehearsals are not usually needed but are available upon request at an additional cost.
Elopements are for couples who do not want a large wedding, or for couples planning a destination wedding and want to make their marriage legal here in Canada. Elopements involve the couple and two witnesses, and there is no formal script; only basic service is provided which makes things legal. If other family members/friends "show up", this is no longer an elopement; it is a full wedding because there is an unspoken expectation by the couple or guests that "something more" needs to be offered. A price adjustment may be required if an elopement is booked and other people are present when the officiant arrives.
Just the paperwork involves meeting at a location of the Officiant's choosing (usually a cozy coffee shoppe) and signing papers. The couple is "pronounced" and that's all there is. This service is performed at short notice.
How she works
For some couples saving money is very important but they still want the full wedding. A compromise might be to consider doing "Just the paperwork" or elopement to make things legal, and then have a close friend or family member "Officiate" your wedding ceremony where guests are present. This can often be a more intimate, fun and memorable way to go and might even be coordinated on the same day depending on availability. It is her mission to find the best option that works for each couple so that they can have their wedding, their way, within a price they can afford.

Mrs. Foster was very helpful, proactive and responsive and guided us in the right manner to ensure a smooth marriage. She was very flexible with her time and was available on a very short notice as well as guided us through the ceremony in a very soothing manner to put us at ease and addressed all our questions expertly. I would highly recommend Mrs. Foster.Sent on 07/11/2018

Rachelle was very professional from the beginning and executed our wedding ceremony very beautifully. Rachelle was punctual and organized with her work (loved her colourful sticky tabs). She was very kind and friendly towards us and our family. I am so happy we had the opportunity to have her be apart of our special day. Highly recommend her services! :)Sent on 22/09/2018
