For Colleen Olafson, Wedding Commissioner & Funeral Celebrant

Colleen was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. She was professional, punctual, and came highly recommended. From our first meeting she laid the road map for the busy months ahead. She had printed forms with tips and tricks to ensure that all legal parts of the ceremony went smoothly. Colleen worked closely with us to design a ceremony that was fresh, personal and unique. During the rehearsal we were taught exactly where to stand to deliver great photos throughout the ceremony. On our wedding day it was both comforting and exciting to see Colleen. We have heard so many great ceremony compliments months after our wedding, and all our thanks goes to Colleen. Our day simply would not have been the same without her!

Charles & Kimberly

We cannot put into words how thankful we are to have had Colleen as our officiant, we highly recommend her. She is warm, caring and above all, professional, with many years of experience behind her. When we first met with Colleen, she made us feel comfortable and confident in choosing her to marry us. She gave us her time and took a genuine interest in our love story. From that, she put together our wedding ceremony, which could not have been more perfect for us. Colleen, you helped us share our love with all of our family and friends on the most important day of our lives and that is truly invaluable to us. Thank you!

“She was so great for our somewhat unique wedding – she came out to Riding Mountain and met us at Moon Lake to do our ceremony (off the beaten track). She was very flexible and professional. I would have no hesitations recommending her to others for your wedding.”

Jessica

testimonial

“Colleen did an absolutely outstanding job as our Marriage Commissioner. She was referred by a good friend of ours, and even turned out to know 2 members of our wedding party. She could not have made the process easier to put our vows together, and even customize them to our own liking. She made sure the process was all laid out in an organized fashion months before the wedding and even answered questions we didn’t even know to ask! I honestly believe that the ceremony could not have been as amazing as it was without her. If anyone is looking for a commissioner who does a consistently good job, and takes initiative to ensure you have the best day possible, we would absolutely recommend Colleen!”

Vanessa

testimonial

“Colleen is awesome! She has a whole book of ideas for your vows, so can mix and match and get a really personalized ceremony without having to necessarily write it all yourself. Kind of like a “choose your own adventure” for a wedding ceremony. We had thought about writing our own but ended up choosing sections from her book and had a wonderful, heartfelt ceremony. Colleen was lovely to work with and helpful with all the details regarding paperwork and what happens after the wedding. She even started our ceremony early at our request since all our guests had arrived and we wanted to avoid the worst of the storm in our backyard wedding.”

“My husband and I live in Alberta, but were married in Winnipeg, MB. Using google as my main guide for finding all of my vendors for the wedding I was attracted to her website because of the ease of use and also the amount of information she provided. Upon emailing her for the first time I was impressed with the amount of detail she provided about how the marriage procedure worked before, during and after our wedding. She took the time to make sure we completely understood what we had to do and what she required of us. Meeting her for the first time, I found Colleen to be very pleasant and easy to talk to. She had an easy to follow booklet of ceremony options, which she kindly let us take back to Alberta to take a look at. The rehearsal and wedding day went flawlessly as Colleen performed our ceremony to our exact customization. Overall I found Colleen to be pleasant, well-spoken, organized and punctual:)”

“Colleen officiated our wedding on July 24, 2015 and we could not have been happier with her services!! From our very first meeting I knew that Colleen was the person I wanted to marry us. She was professional, accommodating, organized and prompt in the preparation of our ceremony. On the day of the wedding, she was the cool, calm and collected person that you want around, who was ready to help with anything! Her well spoken words and genuine happiness for us made our ceremony beautiful and memorable. We had many positive comments about Colleen from our guests, and also had a guest request her to official her daughter’s ceremony a few months later! I cannot say enough about how fantastic Collen was as our wedding commissioner. Thank you Colleen!”
