    Almost perfect.

    Tracy wrote a lovely ceremony for us, was very prompt in her responses, and was punctual.

    However, there were two details that made our ceremony a bit less smooth than we may have hoped. One, she called out our parents by name during the ceremony which wasn't written in to the version of the ceremony we approved; my father was referred to by his legal first name as reflected on our marriage license, though he went by his middle name and was only ever known by his middle name, which caused some confusion for guests and was jarring for us.
    Secondly, and I feel terribly complaining about such a lovely gesture - Tracy very kindly brought a pen for us to use for our signing. However, the pen has my legal first name printed on it, despite my abundant insistence that I be referred to only by my common name, and we had also invested a fair bit of money (relative to a pen) into purchasing a very special pen of our own to use for this part of the ceremony. We felt very put on the spot, and didn't end up using our own special engraved pen As a couple who does very poorly with surprises, we would have appreciated a heads up, or for it to be noticed that we had already handled this detail and given the latitude to proceed through that portion of our ceremony in the way we had envisioned and anticipated.

    Tracy Biggar, Wedding Officiant's reply:

    Thank you for the Review Trish. It was lovely meeting both or you and it was my pleasure to officiate at your wedding. I particularly enjoyed translating all those passages into Latin so they could be included in your ceremony. Regarding your parents’ names, I apologize for my part in that miscommunication. It should not have happened. Regarding the pen, of the many many weddings I have done, you are the first couple who did not appreciate this gift. I wish you would have said at the time that you preferred to sign with your own pen. I would have understood completely. I wish you luck as you journey forward and many years of happiness.

    Lovely and Easy

    We really enjoyed working with Tracy and were so happy she could officiate our wedding. At a time when lots of planning is happening along different dimensions, it was such a relief to have a careful and competent officiant who prepared a clear, concise, and unique ceremony just for us. Our small little backyard wedding went beautifully, thanks in many ways to her preparation, kindness, and willingness to blend into our specific situation.

    Tracy Biggar, Wedding Officiant's reply:

    Yours was such a unique wedding, it was a pleasure for me to be part of it. During these difficult times it is wonderful to still be able to celebrate our milestones. Thanks so much!

    Very accommodating

    Tracy worked well with us from the start and was very supportive to us. She worked with a family member who we wanted to do the majority of our ceremony. Tracy supported our family member in creating our personalized ceremony and then completed all of the legal requirements. Overall a very positive experience until my name was said wrong during our ceremony. The name was similar but definitely was not mine. Tracy did apologize greatly but by that time it was done and over and did come up many times during our reception which was disappointing.

    Tracy Biggar, Wedding Officiant's reply:

    Sorry about that slip of the tongue Alyssa. As you will recall, I corrected myself right away. It was a pleasure working with you at your unique wedding. Good luck to the both of you as you build your future together.

    Small Wedding on Georgian Bay

    We contacted Tracy shortly after we made the decision to cancel our larger wedding. We were able to get on video chat with her and talk a bit about ourselves and relationship and what kind of ceremony we were looking for. She was a pleasure to talk to and was very responsive to our emails.

    She’s very thorough and sends a draft to her script. She was totally open to new ideas and gave us many we didn’t think of. Her hand blessing was very special.

    She mentioned she had been in theatre for years, and it definitely came in handy when our mic wasn’t working. She projected for everyone to hear over the wind and waves! She read the words I had written for our ceremony as well as our own beautifully! Nick cried the entire time.

    It was a beautiful ceremony and we were so thankful to have Tracy a part of it.

    Tracy Biggar, Wedding Officiant's reply:

    Thanks Miranda and Nick. It was a beautiful setting, the perfect spot for a lovely couple to tie the knot. And the challenges just made it that much more interesting!

    Fantastic to work with

    Tracy was amazing and we're so grateful to her for officiating our wedding. Our original plans were cancelled due to the pandemic, but luckily Tracy was available to save the day with a backyard ceremony. She's professional, flexible, and has great delivery. Thank you again, Tracy, for a wonderful wedding. We'd become very attached to the date, and it means so much that you were able to help us keep it.

    Tracy Biggar, Wedding Officiant's reply:

    Thanks Sarah. It was a special day for me too! During these difficult times it is nice when we are still able to celebrate our milestones.

    Amazing Officiant

    Tracy Biggar made us feel so special from the moment we messaged her about her services, to our phone calls and zoom meeting.
    She took the time to not only get to know us but our story. She listened…..hand picked poems and shared different versions of the ceremony that we could select from to make it our own.
    Thank you Tracy!!! Highly recommended

    Tracy Biggar, Wedding Officiant's reply:

    Thanks so much Dyan. It was a great event, so intimate and special and I was happy to be a part of it. What a lovely family you all make!
