    Absolutely perfect

    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).

    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!

    Everything went incredibly!

    We had a difficult time finding someone to officiate our wedding. We were so relieved after our first Skype call with Lori, and we knew immediately that she was exactly the right person! Through the process, Lori was responsive and helpful, and gave us the flexibility of fully customizing our ceremony to fit our needs. It was important for us to have a more progressive ceremony that reinvented some traditions, and Lori was supportive through it all. We met up with her the week before the wedding at her beautiful office space for a walk through, which was extremely helpful. On our day, Lori was on time and organized. During the ceremony, she spoke incredibly well, with confidence and grace, and set up such a special and intimate moment for us. We are SO happy we picked Lori, and we would encourage anyone to hire her for their wedding!

    Thank you lori!

    Lori officiated our wedding on August 10 2018 at Artscape Gibraltar Point on Toronto Island. She was kind, genuine and created an atmosphere that put everyone in our 30-person ceremony at ease! Our boat getting to the island made us late by 45 minutes, but Lori patiently waited for us to arrive (thank you so much for that Lori!) and was ready to go once we got there. She stepped out of the way during moments that were between us, so that it would feel even more intimate and personal. I would recommend her to anyone as she truly puts the couple first. Thank you so much Lori for making our day incredibly special for us!

    Weddings with Lori's reply:

    Thank you so much, Melissa! I loved officiating at your romantic wedding on the beach...and you two are such a magical example of love at first sight! Thank you for this lovely review, and wishing you all the best!
