We had Sarah as the officiant of our wedding. She is incredible. She spent time to get to know us and learn about our story. She personalized the passages for the ceremony. The passages were lovely. We got tons of comments about them. Prior to the wedding, she also walked us through the whole ceremony. It's extremely helpful. It's great to know exactly what's going to happen during the ceremony.

I would highly recommend Sarah. She was willing to work with our super short notice and was very professional in all aspects! Sarah was truly a blessing in disguise when we picked our officiant!

Sarah is serious about love and the commitment you are making to one another. In Sarah's initial consultation she talked to us not only about the kind of ceremony we wanted but about who we are as individuals, as a couple, how we met, what our backgrounds are and how all of these factors would or not impact the ceremony. She also talked to us about her process and how she would go about writing the ceremony and talked us through her several page questionnaire - which we would complete separate or together - and would help her build the ceremony structure, content and tone.
In our final pre-wedding meeting with Sarah she walked us through the entire ceremony which she had written based on our questionnaires and we were so grateful that she did because we got to pre-shed a lot of (happy) tears and it took some of the anxiety out of the actual wedding day. It made us feel so much more comfortable about being up there in front of everyone when we knew what to expect.
Sarah created a ceremony that was completely and perfectly reflective of us as individuals and as a couple and she was very flexible in incorporating some unique aspects that we wanted to include. Not only that but she 100% embraced our Alice in Wonderland theme including dressing in theme for the occasion.
We were also so grateful to Sarah that in the last few days before the wedding she was able to re-work her ceremony to include a tribute to a family member who had unexpectedly passed away that week. It meant the world to us and my family.
We have had nothing but amazing feedback about our ceremony, with many comments that it was the best and most unique ceremony they had attended. We could not have been happier with our experience with Sarah and can not recommend her enough.

Sarah, your words are absolutely lovely! I am touched! Thank you for sharing your experience working with me. I know the details in your ceremony and your reception did not go unnoticed so much originality and many things that you took on as your own projects. This wedding was really an expression of your fun and loving personalities. I am so pleased you chose me to be your Officiant!

With caring, and thanks to you both,

Make sure you are serious and that you understand why you are getting married. Sarah takes her work seriously and goes to a lot of trouble to understand her clients to create a wedding service with heart and real kindness.

My husband and I were married by Sarah at The Ritz Carlton on October 1,2016. Sarah exceeded each and every one of our expectations. Sarah was very knowledgeable, professional and organized. During our initial consultation Sarah thoroughly explored our vision for our perfect day. I was surprised to find that Sarah knew more about the Persian traditions and customs than my husband and I . We loved that Sarah understood our vision for a modern Canadian ceremony perfectly blended with the most beautiful elements of the Persian tradition. Thanks to Sarah, our ceremony was simply flawless. Many of our family and friends have told us they have never been to such a warm wedding and they felt that Sarah was super knowledgeable and organized. We would highly recommend Sarah for all types of weddings.
