    So happy with our ceremony!

    Throughout all of the changes that come with planning a wedding during a pandemic Lori was nothing but supportive and accommodating, we talked a few times over the phone and on Zoom and instantly knew we had made a great choice. She is so knowledgeable about the legal requirements of a marriage, different types/styles of ceremonies and had so many great suggestions to make sure our ceremony was tailored towards us as a couple, which was exactly what we wanted. Lori was such an asset to our wedding day and we would highly recommend her and her services!

    Thank you, Hannah! I was so happy to be a part of your beautiful wedding day! Wishing you both love and many happy adventures together!

    Genuine, heartfelt, personal

    Lori officiated the wedding of our friends and we were impressed by her friendly personable nature and her crisp oratory skills. We were delighted that she was available to officiate our wedding. Correspondence by email was prompt and cordial and our Zoom planning session was organic and natural. She made us feel comfortable and we felt that she made an effort to get to know who we were as people. Working together to make our ceremony script felt effortless and Lori was very accommodating and encouraged us to adapt the script to what we wanted for our ceremony. Lori speaks with a heartfelt genuine manner that made our day feel really special. The attached photo summarizes Lori's personality - someone who is smiling, filled with joy, and rejoices in bringing joy to others! Thank you Lori.

    Weddings with Lori's reply:

    Thank you so much! I loved being a part of your wedding day, the two of you made it so special, and warm, and even with some surprises! :) It was magical, and I wish you both much happiness together.

    Perfect ceremony, amazing experience!


    I just got married this past NYE (yay!), in an event we planned about 5 weeks in advance. You'd honestly be surprised what you can accomplish in just over a month of planning, but despite this, I was still a little concerned about having enough time to find the right person to officiate our ceremony.

    I can safely say that I would have chosen Lori even if I had all the time in the world to choose. She works to tailor everything to you, as a couple – whatever your idea of the ‘perfect’ ceremony is, she will cater exactly to that. We received a number of compliments afterward and I even had my new sister-in-law (recently engaged) reach out after and ask for Lori’s info. I think wedding officiants are interesting because they perform such a big role in your day but most of the time, you don’t know them at all personally. With Lori, this is inconsequential. She honestly rocks and I’d highly recommend her to anyone!

    Weddings with Lori's reply:

    Thank you so much, Calder, for this lovely review! I am quite moved! :) Performing your ceremony was a beautiful way to bring 2018 to a close, and to welcome in a joyful 2019! Wishing you two all the best and much love!

    Heartfelt, beautiful ceremony. Exactly what we wanted

    Lori created the most beautiful wedding ceremony for us this past Saturday. She is an amazing public speaker and does so with confidence and grace.

    I knew right away during our initial Skype meeting that she was exactly what we were looking for - she’s warm, personable, genuine, and completely flexible in customizing the ceremony. We met with Lori a few days ahead of the ceremony to do a walk through - she was extremely organized and put our minds completely at ease.

    Guests have been giving me compliments about how heartfelt and simple our ceremony was, which is exactly what we wanted. We cannot thank Lori enough for being a part of our day and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding.

    Weddings with Lori's reply:

    Thank you, Stephanie, I am quite overwhelmed! Right from day one it was a pleasure working with the two of you, and it was an honor and a real joy to be a part of your beautiful wedding day. Wishing you both much love!

    Married in Blue Jeans

    With only 3 weeks' notice, as we decided to tie the knot on our 8th Anniversary, Lori Lytle was there to officiate! We were charmed by her and the little house on The Danforth, a quiet spiritual place, where she made our Paperwork Ceremony sweet and special - it beat City Hall any day!! A magical experience for all...Luc & Cori (and our captivated Witnesses).

    Weddings with Lori's reply:

    Thank you for these kind words! It was a lovely, romantic occasion and I was so happy to be a part of it! Wishing you much love!

    The perfect day

    Lori was our officiant this past September. She was very collaborative, responsive, knowledgeable and punctual. She helped us get a service that spoke to us as a couple, always open to our ideas of how to customize it, which we also got a lot of compliments on afterwards.

    Thanks very much for your help guiding us through the process on our great day.

    Thank you so much, Nick! It was a pleasure to get to know the two of you and play a role in your beautiful day. Wishing you much love and happiness!

    Nothing but the best

    Lori did a great job and we were very pleased with her services. We were the second wedding she had on the same day and she assured us that there wouldn't be any issues with timing and was very communicative throughout the planning process. Lori revised the ceremony script based on our feedback after proofreading the initial copy at is was exactly what we wanted for our ceremony. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for officiant services!

    Weddings with Lori's reply:

    Thank you so much, Ian! You and Catia created an atmosphere of celebration, and joy, and warmth at your wedding, it was a pleasure to be a part of it! I wish you both much happiness now and in the future!
