If a couple is adding the "Rose Ceremony", often they will have a rose for each of the children. After exchanging roses, the couple will then give each child a rose, a hug, and whisper, "I love you." "Not only are ________and________creating a marriage today, but they also are forming a family with (child/children's name(s)). Just as it is appropriate for________and________to declare their love for each other in the gift of a rose, they also wish to show you (to the children) how much they love you with the gift of a rose."
Ann Marie was an amazing officiant for mine and my wife's wedding. She kept in close contact us and walked us every step of the way before the ceremony and afterwards. It was an amazing and special day thanks to her help! We also have received many compliments from our friends and family about her and how well the ceremony went! Thanks so much Ann :)

Alan Viau was the consummate officiant. He was friendly and welcoming, swiftly forming a rapport with my (now!) husband and I. He wore his experience and wisdom lightly, and brought many ideas to the discussion which we had not considered. His willingness to include a favorite film reference (the 'Mawwiage' scene from 'The Princess Bride') told us we'd found the right person. On the day he arrived in good time, made everybody feel at ease, and was the ideal anchor by being the focal point of the day but making sure we were the center of attention. Even signing the paperwork was a breeze. Honestly, I was sorry to see him leave, though it was entirely meet that he did, without fuss and with all our gratitude and good wishes. Thank you, Alan Viau, Ottawa's "Dr Wedding" :-) Simon and Jonathan May 2020

Rev Courtenay Fraitzl was amazing and completely exceeded our expectations. We could not have been happier with her! A big thank you to Courtenay for making our day so special. She did such an amazing job and we were both so pleased with out choice. She is a great representative of your company and certainly does an amazing job!

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.

Richard was absolutely great. He was very accommodating of what we wanted for our ceremony, and was helpful in tweaking it in a way that made it special and meaningful to us. He was very easy to get along with and made the whole process feel easy and comfortable. He was able to roll with the ceremony when my wife and I kept screwing up the words and laughing through our vows, and made the whole thing come together beautifully. I would definitely recommend Richard. September, 2018

Jennifer Paul-O'Donnell was wonderful! She made us feel at ease and she did a wonderful celebration ceremony for our big day. She incorporated things to suit our family.

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.
