    Double booked our wedding

    We had a terrible experience with Vancouver Officiant. The actual officiant we met over Skype was great, and we really liked him. Right after our consult we emailed to tell the organizer that we wanted to book. She sent us a contract, but then she asked us if we could move our wedding time. Confused, I said I'd prefer not, and I asked if it was because there was another wedding close to that time. All I wanted to know was whether I should be worried about our officiant making it to our wedding on time. She replied saying they had enough time and I said that was okay and I signed the contract and paid. After I had paid, she told me that it might be better for me if I talked to another officiant who was completely free that day. I was confused, but I said okay, and we talked to the second officiant. We didn't click with him so we told the organizer we'd prefer our original officiant. However, at that point, she had already booked our original officiant with another couple even though we had already PAID and signed a contract for our time!! It was incredibly frustrating. After some back and forth we asked for a refund, which they said they could do, but it literally took weeks for them to give it back to us, which was unacceptable.

    It was an awful experience and I do not recommend them whatsoever.

    Hello Shannon,
    thank you so much for taking the time to write this review, we learn how to be more effective from reviews like yours! We would like to extend to you our most sincere apology regarding any unnecessary stress that this may have caused you and your fiancee. We truly value our clients and ultimately our goal is to help create the most stress-free day for you and your fiancee as possible. I’d just like to take the opportunity to provide some further clarity regarding a few of the issues you speak of in this review. Due to all of our officiants being based out of the Greater Vancouver area it is very important for us to make sure that our officiants travel time and travel costs are used efficiently. That being said, this is why we were very open and honest with you from the beginning that your officiant would be officiating another wedding on that same day in Squamish. We could sense your uneasiness about time frames (Completely understandable, it's a very important day!) and this is why we offered you to meet with two other very experienced officiants who would be able to offer the flexibility needed. As for the refund issue, we were in-touch with our financial advisor as soon as you expressed that you wanted a refund. We do wish that the refund process could have been quicker for you (The process took exactly two weeks) but we were very clear that we were having some issues on our end due to us being a Canadian company and you banking in the US - there was only so much that was in our control.

    After reviewing the e-mails between you and your coordinator, I can honestly say that we tried our very best to meet the needs of your big day. We wish the two of you a happy marriage and all the best in all of your future endeavours together!

    Made our ceremony perfect

    "Lane was absolutely amazing at our wedding, the amount of care he took with the ceremony was more then we could have hoped for, he had everyone laughing and having a good time during the ceremony, and there wasn't a dry eye in the house by the end, it was beautiful. I think every one of my guest said he was the best officiant they have ever experienced at a wedding, even already had people requesting his info from me for friends and families weddings in the future. Could not have asked for a better officiant, and very respectful of our spiritual beliefs and values."

    Perfectly crafted personalized ceremony, stress-free experience

    Kristin and Brian were extremely helpful in ensuring that our ceremony went smoothly and was tailored to what we wanted. They contacted us at convenient times to gather the information that they needed to help put everything together, and our ceremony went off without a hitch. Would definitely recommend their services to friends and family in the future!

    Wonderful experience!

    Kristen Olynick was an absolute dream to work with. She made everything so simple and easy and was always extremely responsive. She customized our ceremony exactly how we wanted it. I received so many compliments from wedding guests that say they absolutely loved her personality, energy and positive vibes. I made the best decision going with Kristen on our special day and highly recommend her to anyone planning their own wedding! :)

    Excellent Job!

    From the very beginning, we appreciated how quick you responded to our emails and we loved how heartfelt your speech was at the ceremony. We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant!

    Harry and I are incredibly happy and blessed that you were our officiant for our wedding. ☺️

    Thank you again!

    Special, modern and totally tailored to us

    Lane, thanks again for everything last night. You made the ceremony so special and personalized. It was so lovely to hear the magical way you were able to share our love story with our friends & family. We got so many compliments on your officiating and people were shocked to find out that you weren’t a long time friend, since the chemistry was so natural. We couldn’t have asked for more and I could keep on gushing about it :)

    Thank you for being a part of one of the most memorable days of our lives.

    Amazing experience - thank you VO!

    Words do not fully express our gratitude for Jay's amazing officiating skills! Above and beyond (what we considered the call of duty!). So many of our friends and family asked us if Jay was a friend of ours, and commented on what an incredible ceremony he officiated. Jay managed to balance my husband and I out to a
    'T', brought a wonderful sense of humour that was coupled with sentiment and seriousness. The elements of spirituality, honoring my Christian faith and heritage, were so touching and heartfelt. Nailed it! Vancouver Officiants is absolutely a perfect choice to complete your wedding day. Couldn't have asked for more!

    We are so happy that you two are married & that Jay performed an 'above & beyond' ceremony, tailored just right for you! Thank you for sharing such kind words & your recommendation. Warmly, Kristen, Jay & VO Team

    Jay Lundgren made our day!

    Jay, we can't thank you enough for officiating our wedding. Everything was absolutely perfect and you brought our vision to life with a mix of traditional, comical and engaging topics. We received so much positive feedback from our guests to the point they thought you were one of Jordan's buddies - your presence and demeanor were spot on and definitely someone we'd like to be buddies with! Thank you for making our day so incredibly special. You rule!

    Our Neck of the Woods

    Our experience working with Jay and Vancouver Officiants provided much more than I thought an Officiant would to make our day perfect. Jay was easy going and really focused on who we were as a couple to make sure his words reflected how we wanted the atmosphere on our special day. You could tell he really listened to what we wanted and was really able to get our wedding guests laughing and comfortable. We had an intimate wedding and Jay fit in as if he had known us for years.

    Great experience highly recommend

    We are so happy we were able to book with Emily. She took the time to ask questions to get to know us and really tailored the experience to us. She listened to our preferences, and offered some much needed suggestions. We really appreciated that she went the extra mile, and her words were so sweet and memorable. We highly recommend booking with Emily!
