    Look no further!

    From the first time we met with her over Skype in 2020, we knew Lori was the officiant we wanted for our wedding! Not only is she very knowledgeable and professional, but she is also a genuinely kind person and we immediately felt at ease in her hands.

    She took genuine interest in getting to know our story and about us as a couple, and based off of our communications, created a beautiful and intimate ceremony that was very much 'us'; which is exactly what we wanted!

    We received nothing but compliments following our ceremony and we couldn't recommend Lori enough to any couple planning a wedding. Having the right officiant for your special day is pretty important, and you can't go wrong with Lori!

    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!

    Weddings with Lori's reply:

    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!

    Professional and a pleasure to have Lori as our wedding officiant

    Lori was flexible, professional and a pleasure to work with! Me and my fiancée were looking for a wedding officiant to have our marriage signing completed when we met Lori. Lori provided valuable information to us and gave us recommendations, which we appreciate. I would recommend Lori to anyone looking to getting married or have their marriage signing completed!

    Thank you so much, Ryan! It was such a happy day, and I was grateful to be a part of it! Wishing you both much love and happiness!

    Blown Away!

    From the beginning of our wedding planning journey, Lori was incredibly knowledgeable, flexible, and organized. When we had to postpone our wedding due the the pandemic, and switch venues, Lori was extremely accommodating. Her warm and kind demeanour put our pre-wedding nerves at ease. Lori is very professional and arrived early to our ceremony to prepare documents. During our ceremony, Lori blew us away! We could not have asked for a more beautiful moment. Lori was so well spoken and we could feel the kindness in her voice the entire time. She expertly communicated with our families to coordinate documentation once the ceremony was complete. Our families were so impressed with the gorgeous ceremony Lori prepared. We couldn't be happier and will be recommending Lori to all of our engaged friends in the future!

    Andrea, thank you so much! I loved your wedding day, you created such a warm and happy atmosphere! Wishing you both much love and adventures ahead!

    Sweet and dreamy service

    We loved working with Lori for our wedding in Niagara-on-the-lake. She was very flexible and really worked with us to customize every aspect. Her calming voice and nature really helped with the pre-wedding jitters and we really felt that she cared about connecting with her clients. I definitely recommend her to anyone!

    Weddings with Lori's reply:

    Jessie, thank you so much for this lovely review! You created a magical wedding day and I was so happy to be a part of it! Wishing you both all the best and much love.

    Absolutely amazing and very accommodating

    Lori is an excellent officiant and super easy to work with. Lori was referred to us by my friend and we are so happy we decided on Lori as our officiant.

    We first arranged a phone call with Lori where she explained her process and took the time to answer all our questions and concerns. Throughout the process, Lori was responsive to e-mails and answering any additional questions we had.

    Then the pandemic hit... Lori was extremely accommodating and worked with us every step of the way. Due to unexpected regulatory changes and venue being closed, Lori worked with us on a new date, new time, and new location, without any hesitation.

    With the pandemic, our interest in wedding planning waned - but Lori remained professional the entire time. Sending us e-mail reminders and scripts of the ceremony. In our scripts, Lori even remembered the little requests we had initially spoken about during our first phone call over a year ago and made the changes we wanted without our prompt and reminders. She worked with us until we got the script exactly how we wanted. Lori also sent us reminders about the steps we needed to do to ensure that the ceremony can be performed legally - which was really helpful during wedding planning when there were millions of other things on our minds.

    On the day of the ceremony, Lori arrived early and ensured that all the paperwork was in place. The ceremony was performed smoothly and efficiently. Becuase of the pandemic, Lori kept her mask on the entire time and remained physically distanced from us - which was very respectful of our wishes and greatly appreciated! We couldn't have been happier with our decision to have Lori officiate our wedding. Thank you so much Lori so being a part of our day!

    Weddings with Lori's reply:

    I am really overwhelmed and moved by these words, thank you so much! I loved being a part of your romantic and sweet wedding, there was so much love in that place that day. Wishing you both much happiness and love 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.
