Thanks Aestus Rogers you met all our expectations and more.The simplicity and straightforwardness of the ceremony was, we believe, a big part of its power. Your calm demeanour, presence, and poise created a lightness and levity to what was nonetheless a solemn and weighty moment. We know that's kind of a contradiction but looking back on the ceremony we can identify in ourselves feelings both fuzzy and granite-like, formal and relaxed, noble and yet down-to-earthy. Yeah we're waxing a little poetic here, but doing so only to express our gratitude at how perfectly suited the ceremony was to who we are and what we wanted for it.

It is our esteemed pleasure to write a referral in support of the one and only Todd Kaufman who officiated our wedding in the summer of 2014. Choosing Todd was a true blessing – It is a decision we will never come to regret. He truly went above and beyond in helping us understand the nuances of getting married – he covered all details from getting paperwork to writing vows, but never for a moment pressured us to adopt any pre-existing formalities. He counseled us many times leading up to the event and when all of the compounding stress was hitting us, working with Todd never for a moment felt like work. Todd was incredible at making us feel very comfortable, excited and prepared for our big day. Of course, the lead up was only part of the story. During the ceremony, he spoke eloquently, dressed professionally and with huge amounts of sincerity, delivered a truly moving ceremony that is making me emotional as I write this. Reflecting on our day, I would say that Todd set the tone early. His sincerity, unique and personalized take on officiating a wedding, attention to detail and ability to connect with a room of any variety were the reasons why we can look back at our day and say it was perfect. To top it off, Todd drove hours from a relaxing lake view, battling Toronto summer weekend traffic just to be there with us. I don’t know many people who would be so selfless for complete strangers. Of course Todd is still a dear friend of ours. He still offers counsel when we need it with frequent check-ins to see how we are doing. I challenge anyone to meet Todd and not want to continue a lasting friendship with him. Todd is a genuine and amazing human. Suffice to say, I would recommend Todd. For just about anything. Thanks Todd! John and Zach July 26th, 2014

Ingrid Desroches was very professional but friendly at the same time. She was able to get the exact changes in the ceremony that we would like to incorporate. She made us feel at ease in the preparation and in the actual ceremony. Natasha (All Seasons' Reservations Manager) was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful from our initial inquiry and exceeded our expectations.

Thomas Moore was interested in us from the beginning. We were very comfortable with him. We talked about the script and our vows and preferences. We knew leaving our meeting place that we had chosen the perfect person to be our officiant. The wedding was at nigh. It was a quiet wedding with only family. Thomas met up with us a half hour before. As we got started he was very friendly with our family and a jokester with us. He was very comfortable and professional without small gathering. It went off very smoothly with encouragement and humour. He although was using humour to get through some emotional moments of the night, it never got cheesy or corny. We were extremely happy and grateful with his work that evening. Our families are both still raving about him. My dad is a somewhat hard person to please, and I worried about the officiant the most. It just so happened that my dad said he wished Thomas had done their wedding. There is all the compliment you need. Thomas Moore, thank you so very much for being our officiant. We were very happy to have found you.

Hello Toni (Ellwand), We, and our family and friends, thought you did a great job. You were warm and welcoming, and the tone you set for the ceremony, as well as the pace and ease with which you performed it was all wonderful. Several family members and friends came up to us afterwards to praise your performance. So thank you for your very good work. All the best, and thanks again!

Todd Kaufman went beyond our expectations to prepare a service that was simple (as we requested) yet meaningful to us. Todd did research in Jewish wedding customs and together we found a way to include a nod to our heritage while keeping the ceremony secular. Todd worked with us to help us write our words of intent. Todd was sensitive to our family needs, was flexible and listened to our needs.
