Honouring Your Love
Originally from Toronto (Scarborough), I fell in love with the beautiful area of Kawartha Lakes known as Bethany Hills where my wife and I now live
As an experienced professional speaker who has hosted many large events, I will ensure your wedding ceremony reflects who you both are in a personal and meaningful way. Your wedding will take the exact form you wish: relaxed, easy-going, spiritual, funny…I work with both of you to build a ceremony for you.
This is your day and my goal is to help you relax and enjoy the day in the best possible way.
When Christine and I married in January, 2015 we stood on the exact spot where two same sex couples stood in January, 2001. Those marriages set forth the path that paved the way for true inclusivity for marriages in Canada.
It was a beautiful and happy moment in our lives, yet sobering to realize that just a decade prior we were not legally able to marry. Oh, how far we have come! I would be honoured to be a part of your celebration.
Liz, you truly made our wedding ceremony so special. It was everything we could have imagined and you really captured both of us and our relationship. You made us feel so comfortable standing up there, we both felt so calm and relaxed and were able to really enjoy the moment.
We laughed, cried, and felt all of the emotions listening to how you told our story. Not only was this experience so amazing for us, many of our guests expressed how enjoyable the ceremony was for them to experience as well. For that, we have you to thank. So thank you Liz, for making that ceremony so special for us. We LOVE you!
