Charming and perfect.

When we went with Brian from Vancouver Officiant as our wedding Officiant we knew we had chosen perfectly. He managed to turn our love story into a beautiful tale that had everyone close to tears. He guided us through the ceremony so that we had no worries about anything at all. I would recommend Brian and Vancouver Officiant to anyone who asks!

Collaborative and engaging officiant

Brian officiated our wedding in September 2023, and we highly recommend him. He brought a warm and inviting tone to our ceremony and put us at ease. We enjoyed working with Brian to prepare for our big day, and we had confidence we were in good hands. The team at Vancouver Officiant provided us with helpful resources for writing our vows, and we appreciated the option to select elements for our ceremony.

AMAZING experience

My partner and I were looking for a more intimate and personal ceremony and didn鈥檛 love the language that was being enforced by going the more traditional route, so we opted for Vancouver Officiant. We found an officiant on the island through their website that looked like a good fit and had a first meeting on Zoom. Vanessa was so great and friendly right off the bat. She met with us again closer to the wedding and we had a blast just chatting. She is so lovely and her ceremony crafting was perfection. We are so glad we made this decision.

Loved working with Cory

Cory was so much fun and so great as our officiant. I do wish we had reviewed the survey we completed again before the wedding as some of the information had changed, but otherwise we loved our experience. Our rehearsal was so thorough and made the ceremony go so smoothly. Cory was funny, easy going, and gave us such great advice to keep us calm on the day of. Would definitely recommend him!!

Super easy going and flexible!

Brian from Vancouver officiants officiated our wedding June 4, 2021. Brian is kind and easy to chat with. He provided us with tools to help shape our ceremony and vows.we took a little bit of a comedic approach to our ceremony and Brian made everything feel natural and easy. Many of our guests complemented that he was the best officiant they had ever seen! Thank you Brian!!

Thank you Kristin!!

From day one Kristin was an amazing asset to our wedding, and our ceremony was so beautiful and personal all thanks to her. The exhortation Kristin wrote about us was equally touching and humorous, all of our guests loved it! We are so grateful for all of Kristin's help, and it was a wonderful experience to work with her!

Kristen is Simply the Best!

Working with Kristen was absolutely wonderful. It is clear that she cares about the couples she works with and goes out of her way to make sure their day is personal and memorable. We wanted a ceremony focused on family and the uniqueness of us as a couple and Kristen delivered the perfect ceremony for us. Our guests continue to compliment the amazing job our officiant did. Kristen took a lot of the stress out of the ceremony. She was always reachable (our preferred communication was email due to busy schedules but also offered to be available via phone) and went above and beyond both the rehearsal day and wedding day to make sure everything was taken care of. She even helped the groom & groomsmen with their boutonnieres! Thank you Kristen for everything you did to make our day so special. We highly recommend Kristen!

I Couldn't Have Asked For It Any Other Way

I'm not good at public speaking, nor coming up with vows. What vows I did have, I wanted that to be in private between me and my husband to be. Yet I didn't like the traditional vows of "to have and to hold until death do us part" etc...as I've heard it too many times at my 5+ older cousin's weddings. I wanted something special, modern, fun, customized, yet still had as powerful of a meaning as traditional vows. I wanted someone to take the reins and turn this ceremony into an engaging event for everyone. I wasn't there to put on a show for an audience. I was there and the audience was there because they are people I care about that will be involved in the rest of my married life to guide, love, and support us. This was exactly what these amazing people at Vancouver Officiants do. I picked Stephanie Reitsma and I have never made such a good decision. She is fun, bubbly, not shy, and initiates conversations because heaven knows I can't. We meet at new cute coffee shops I've never been do and have a blast talking about the wedding. I learned so much from her about planning a wedding. She is more than just an officiant. She asked me questions that I didn't even know I was supposed to have answers to. That saved me a lot from getting shocked if I had missed anything.
During the rehearsal, she made sure EVERYONE knew their place. If they didn't, then they get an explanation and another walk through. She answered EVERYONE'S questions. Again, I am Chinese and I bring my whole family to everything so all my immediate family (and then some) was there to ask questions. She had a plan and she made sure we all knew the plan and how to execute this flawlessly. She stayed as long as she had to in order to get this done right. Even my dad was like "where in the world did you find this gold"? If it weren't for her, we would be running down the aisle like headless chickens.
Stephanie's ceremony was written beautifully. I loved how she incorporated our life, our love stories, and experiences from those close to us into the ceremony. Our guests were all involved in the process and she made it fun for everyone. She had creative ideas on how to get people from getting in the way of photographers with their big ipads for cameras, she made sure both us and our guests were equally happy. Not only this, but she does more than she needs to. She went out of her way to rally up everyone and beeline them out of the ceremony room (because we had to get out of there for the next wedding set up), and out on the boardwalk for photos because Eric and I got stranded in the sea of people who wanted to take photos with us in the narrow hallway which prevented us from making it outside. Does your officiant do that? I didn't think so.
I give them 100 out of 10. They get the golden buzzer :)
