Hi Pat

I would just like to thank you for performing our ceremony and keeping us on track after my shock of seeing my step-daughter who I thought was still in Australia. Pete and I were so happy with the ceremony and with you as our officiant. Thanks again and take care.

Hi Pat,

We just wanted to thank you once again for a wonderful ceremony and all your help this past month. We will be thinking of you when we have our destination ceremony next week! To be honest, when we originally thought of “city hall wedding”, we were picturing standing in someone’s government office, signing papers. Much like getting a driver’s licence! But when we met you and saw the services you provide we were ecstatically surprised and very happy! Thank you once again and all the best! Sincerely,

Deane & Anita

Hi Pat!

Hi Pat!

I just wanted to say a big thank you on behalf of Bruno and I for making our wedding day last Friday so special. We really enjoyed the ceremony and our guests were very happy about it too. You have such a warm and caring nature, and the delivery of the ceremony was lovely. Sincerely,

Bruno & Jessica

Dear Pat,

We would just like to say thank you for connecting us with John Bedell for our wedding. Our ceremony was beautiful. We had 4 children in our wedding party and he was wonderful with them during the rehearsal Friday evening. John is a wonderful minister. Our ceremony was formal but also relaxed. John has a wonderful sense of humor and that helped keep Chris and I at ease during the ceremony. So thank you again for providing us with a wonderful minister. Sincerely,

Christine & Chris

Dear Pat,

A note of gratitude for a beautiful ceremony you performed at our wedding in July. We were so pleased you were able to celebrate and share this day with us. When we first met you in January we knew instinctively we wanted you to perform at our wedding ceremony. You were so easy to talk too and made us feel so welcome. Your ceremony was so touching and brought tears of joy and laughter! Everyone has been expressing how enchanting the ceremony was and how well it was suited to us, especially the part about destiny. Our sincerest thank you for being part of our special day!

Mr. & Mrs. Bill & Janet Lockman

Hi Pat

You have NO idea how much stress you have taken off me, and the tears he doesn’t have to dry off my cheeks trying to plan the huge family wedding. No dealing with a million realities who all decided our wedding was supposed to be one thing or another. And when we leave Kitchener its off to Niagara Falls to our romantic takeaway place. Our wedding, our way. So amazing! More people should do this! I am very excited for the 25th! Thank you for making this so easy. The big wedding was getting too much and every guest had their own input and must-haves and it was starting to resemble something neither of us wanted. You’ve made this so easy, pleasant and still very sweet, loving and romantic. The renewal can be this big annoying party, but the real thing is simple and comfortable. This process reminds us that our wedding is about US joining together in OUR marriage. Words cannot express my relief and joy! You ladies are amazing! Thank you soo much,

Andrew Blakey & Danielle Maire Viau (soon to be Blakey)

Hi Pat,
