Testimonials

It was such a wonderful, personalized ceremony and we feel so grateful…It was exactly what we had wanted and hoped for…We have received so many comments from friends and family saying that that was the nicest ceremony that they had ever witnessed. They have all asked us about you and have stated how exceptional you were. So a heartfelt thank you Cortney for marrying [us] and making this so special and unforgettable to not only us but our loved ones as well.
– Candice and Teddy

Wow, such a wonderful, magical event! We’re still on a major high.
Thank you for being totally awesome.
– J.M. and A.B.

Thank you for doing such a wonderful job in officiating our wedding. The whole night was beyond our wildest hopes, but Geoff and I both agree that the ceremony was absolutely the highlight for us. It was exactly what we wanted, and really felt original to us. We had numerous people ask us about humanism, about you, and about how the ceremony was put together. I have no doubt that we’ll see you again soon – either when we are guests at another wedding, and at another of our own life events.
– Geoff and Christina

I can’t thank you enough for everything…It was better than I could have imagined. Your calm and kind demeanor was immediately evident and put me at such ease that I didn’t even feel nervous.
Our entire family (especially my mother) has been raving about how unique and personal the ceremony was and how they have never seen anything like it. I have quite a few friends who have recently gotten engaged and I will be passing on your information to anyone who might ever ask!
– Tanya and Bruce

THANK YOU SO MUCH for agreeing to drop-in at the 11th hour and save the wedding! We appreciate it was a lot of last minute work, but the results better than we could have imagined. So many of our guests came up to us throughout the evening and said it was bar none the best wedding ceremony they’ve ever attended. On a personal level, you helped make a special day even more incredible for both of us. We’ll be forever grateful and I’m glad you attuned to our slightly zany wavelength. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone else!
– Michael and Megan

Thank you so much!!! The lasting comment from the wedding was how it was the best ceremony people have ever seen!! And I agree, your tone and the tone you set made it all so beautiful (even if my memory of it is more like a movie than real life!)!!
– Lynette and Adam

We loved our ceremony and how personal you made it for us. All of our guests spoke very highly of you and the ceremony — many said it was the best they’ve attended! Thanks again for making our inter-cultural wedding so special and meaningful.
– Ron and Amy

Cortney was an integral part of our wedding- from the pre-work, to the millions of questions we asked her throughout the weeks of planning, to the actual ceremony. She was absolutely fantastic. The ceremony was beautifully done, as it wove together the story of how we met, how we fell in love and how we decided to marry each other. Cortney demonstrated a perfect balance of eloquence, humour and warmth as she facilitated our marriage.
Cortney thanks again for being part of our special day- it wouldn’t have been the same without you!
– Michelle and Logan

You were absolutely amazing! The ceremony was just perfect. It was so meaningful and special. You had great delivery and really made it so fun (and helped us feel calm and collected). Everyone was asking where we found you and thought you were fantastic! So thank you for all of your hard work and professionalism. You were a big hit!!
– Amber and Preston

Thank you so much again for all your help and the truly wonderful ceremony. Thank you so so much for making the day absolutely perfect.

We loved our wedding ceremony and so many people came up to us afterwards and complimented us on our choice of officiant and said that you did a fantastic job! People thought we had known each other for years! Thanks again for all your help with the prep, lead up and actual ceremony – we loved it!
– Mehnaz and Eric

Sam and I are still on a high from the wedding!! It was such a beautiful day and so meaningful for the both of us. So many of our friends and family have commented on how beautiful the humanist ceremony was. One thing I noticed [from the wedding video] that I really appreciated was the way you stood aside during our personal vows so that it was just the two of us in the frame – it was your attention to all those small (yet important) details that made working with you such a joy!! We can never thank you enough!
