Wow! Brigitte a dépassé nos attentes lors de notre mariage. Elle a fait preuve de patience et surtout de professionnalisme du début jusqu'à la fin de notre cérémonie.

Si vous êtes à la recherche d'un célébrant de mariage francophone, dynamique, professionnelle et chaleureuse, Brigitte est le choix idéal. Joane et Samson avril 2021
We put a lot of thought into picking our officiant. We needed someone who was flexible and could roll with the punches, someone with a good sense of humor, well spoken and fluently bilingual. Soon after we started talking on the phone we clicked and we booked Brigitte (Samson) right away. Brigitte was so flexible and it was especially helpful each time our plans would change because of Covid. I was so excited for our planning meeting. Brigitte had so many tips for us! With all the uncertainty of Covid our ceremony could have literally been shut down the day of but we were at least so confident to have her there that even if it was just Matt and I that it would be so special. Our actual ceremony was beautiful. She had created something so personalized for us. We had many distractions such as our toddler wanting to be picked up and singing the alphabet or an elderly grandparent trying to facetime a family member at the ceremony and shouting he would try it again. I was starting to panic internally but anytime something would happen Brigitte knew exactly what to say to seamlessly bring the focus back to us. She was so sweet and funny. She wasn't critical or irritated or frustrated - she just rolled with it and we all laughed about it. I think this really set the tone for the rest of the evening and I genuinely don't think it would have gone as well if we had booked anyone else. Brigitte is the absolute best and we absolutely recommend her!! - Michele-Laure & Matt (November 2020)
"We're so happy that you were an integral part of our special day. It may have been during COVID and super small but it was still the highlight of our year and of our journey as a couple. Your bilingualism and the way you represented us as a couple was perfect and we are so thankful you respected our pronouns and wishes with regards to other wording. As it was quite chilly that day, you were a great sport for our outdoor venue. Much love!" - Alex and Tee, November 2020
Brigitte Samson was wonderful and helpful in so many ways. She was able to answer all our questions and really made our big day feel so special and unique to us specifically. Thank you ! Brendan & Lindsay December 2020
On ne pouvait pas demander mieux! Les services de Brigitte sont impeccables! Elle était professionnelle du début à la fin. Nous avons eu une cérémonie bilingue.

"On tient à vous remercier pour cette belle cérémonie et nous sommes très heureux de vous avoir choisi comme célébrante de notre mariage. Depuis le premier contact téléphonique qu’on a eu jusqu’à la fin vous nous avez été d'une grande aide. Vous étiez très compréhensible, patiente et flexible aussi. Nous avons aussi eu un bon retour de nos familles..merci encore!!" - Elvis & Océane November 2020

The ceremony was PERFECT! Thank you so much for making the day so great and one to remember. As we talked about before the ceremony we lost sleep over the stress of the day, but you made it so easy!! We keep on saying how yes the pandemic sucks and wish it didn't happen, but were lucky to have had that moment together. We can not thank you enough for being available and able to perform our ceremony. It was truly so special and we will hold that moment in our hearts for years to come!!" Robyn & Brittney May 2020
Even though COVID changed our wedding plans drastically, we knew we still wanted to move forward with a small ceremony and it wouldn’t have been possible without Brigitte. As soon as we made the decision, she was still able to officiate us on our original date. Knowing Brigitte was on board made everything less stressful. She listened to what we wanted in our ceremony and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Thank you again Brigitte." - Kim & Camil
"Brigitte has been an absolute pleasure to work with! She was very flexible & accommodating as we had to change our plans at the very last minute.

Brigitte Samson went above and beyond to make sure our ceremony was perfect. She was even able to wait for me the bride as we were slightly delayed. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking an officiant. She made our ceremony personal and truly spoke to us, which made the ceremony that much more special. She was very organized prior to the wedding, she met with us to discuss all detail a month prior and made sure all of our questions were answered. Brigitte truly exceeded all of our expectations. Cameron & Melanie August 2019
We had the privilege of having Brigitte officiate our wedding this past August. A privilege, because she was AMAZING! Brigitte was so kind, personable and has great attention to detail. She provided assistance and suggestions throughout the entire planning, and started the process well in advance of our wedding to ensure successful paperwork completion - which was great as we were an out-of-province couple. She provided us with the ceremony structure and sample scripts, but also allowed the freedom to personalize our promises and vows. I thought I’d be so nervous during the ceremony, but wasn’t at all with Brigitte’s calming presence. Thank you SO much Brigitte, for everything. We were truly so lucky to have you be a part of our day :) Enea & Nicole August 2019
"We were so happy with our ceremony - thank you!! Many people commented that it was very meaningful, personal and lovely, and we also had people saying you were one of the best officiants they have seen! Thank you so much!!" - Jordan & Jamie Aug 2019

On our wedding day, we received many rave reviews about Brigitte from all of our guests. We are so happy that we chose Brigitte for our special day, and highly recommend her to other couples searching for the perfect officiant. Alana & Ben July 2019
Brigitte Samson made our ceremony feel happy, lighthearted, serene, and fun all at the same time (just as we wanted it!). We both felt calm having her up there with us and appreciated her positive energy and warm smile. It was the perfect ceremony, and lots of guests came up to us after telling us how much they enjoyed it. Brigitte was also very knowledgeable and confident about the laws surrounding marriage, which was important to us as our situation was somewhat unusual. We were Ontario residents getting married in Quebec, and I didn’t have a Canadian birth certificate and my last name changed when I immigrated to Canada. However, Brigitte led us through all the steps and documents we needed and everything was stress-free! Thank you so much Brigitte for adding some extra sunshine to our wedding day! We are so grateful and happy we found you. Nina & Terry June 2019

We were very impressed with how thorough and detailed you were from our first meeting on. Our experience with you felt very customized and tailored to our needs. The fact that you personally wrote the ceremomy scripts just for us was amazing! This preparation meeting with you made us feel relaxed and confident about the ceremony and gave one less thing to worry about when wedding planning. We loved that you were able to provide us with several sample vows and sample readings to choose from. We definitely recommend you to any couple looking for an officiant who can relate and adapt to any style of wedding." Alex & Adrianna July 2019
Brigitte was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is easy going and so organized. We spoke once and she handled everything like a pro. I didn't have to worry about a thing and she showed up on wedding day with great energy and performed her duties perfectly. I would 100% recommend her services. Adrienne & Graeme June 2019
"After having Brigitte as my officiant for my wedding, I can 100% see why she has been awarded the Best Officiant of the year for 2017 and 2018! She was an absolutely joy to work with. Despite only meeting her once before the day of the wedding, my husband and I felt like we had known her for ages - she's just so warm and personable. As an anxious and detail-oriented person, I was immediately pleased with Brigitte's planning skills during our first meeting. I felt 100% ready for the day of the wedding - I didn't realize how much actually goes into the ceremony, so having Brigitte's guidance was amazing. I also truly appreciated that Brigitte took the time to get to know my husband and I, as well as our story. She incorporated these personal touches into our wedding which made it feel that much more intimate. Honestly, I didn't realize how big a part an officiant plays into a wedding day, but knowing what I know now, I'm so thankful we were able to book Brigitte's services. She really made our day special and unforgettable!" Michelle & Josh june 2019

She was truly great during the wedding and made us feel very special :) i would recommend her to anyone!! October, 2018

Annie and I can’t recommend her highly enough. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

We fell upon Brigitte Samson by chance, and are so happy we did! Brigitte is friendly, professional and has a very calming presence which really helped us get through our ceremony jitters. We got married the day after several tornadoes hit our city, so there were power outages, traffic lights out and just general chaos. Even though she had several other commitments that day, Brigitte was still there early, cool as a cucumber and ready to go. Several of our family members have remarked on how personal and special our ceremony was. Brigitte really listened to our story and what we wanted, while also providing her expertise when we were stuck. We highly recommend Brigitte to any couple looking for an amazing personalized ceremony!
Merci pour la superbe expérience que nous avons vécu avec toi! Tu es très professionnelle, organisée et disponible. Tu as fait en sorte que les préparatifs concernant la cérémonie se fassent sans stress. Nous dirons à tout le monde à quel point nous sommes satisfaits de tes services. Encore une fois merci!!
Nous avons été entièrement satisfait de l'excellent service que tu nous as donné. Ton accueil, ta simplicité et ton empathie marquée ont permis de faire de notre célébration de marriage un événement réussi. Merci encore!

She came across as very professional, and even put her own personal touch to the ceremony for us in a script made just for us!

My husband and I would like to thank Brigitte for being part of our special day as our wedding officiant. I fully recommend her, with only positive input on her services. As neither of us have been married before we were a little nervous about who to choose to marry us and we wanted our day to be perfect. Brigitte definitely took that bit of nervousness away upon our initial meeting. Brigitte set up a meeting with us to our convenience. She was so open and friendly and we felt as though she was a long time friend and no stranger! The exact feeling you want on your wedding day. She explained every detail and sent us scripts, respecting our interest in regards to ceremony, and was available all along the way. She arrived ahead of time for the ceremony and was dressed professionally. She spoke clear, and loud enough that everyone could here. Everyone indicated that our ceremony was the most beautiful they've seen thus far. And Brigitte, you played a big part in realizing that for us.Thanks so much from us both and our family and friends! We highly recommend you! Vanessa and Raymond Vanderpoel. Sept 2017

We could not recommend her more! Thank you so much! Gabrielle and Jonathan Oct 2017
Brigitte Samson officiated our outdoor wedding in September and we couldn’t be happier with our choice! Given the importance of the ceremony for our wedding day, we wanted an officiant that not only understood the importance of the actual day, but also the preparation leading up to it. Her experience officiating weddings was clear from the start, as she provided clear direction and recommendations to help us in the planning of our ceremony. Brigitte was a consent professional and always available to answer any questions or concerns. She was flexible throughout the process and adapted herself to our special requests and needs. Following our wedding, we have received many positive comments regarding the great bilingual ceremony she conducted. We are truly thrilled with the service provided by Brigitte and would recommend her services to any couple looking for a dynamic, professional and flexible officiant. Once again, many thanks to Brigitte for being part of our very special day, Patrick and Kaitlyn Sept 2017
Brigitte Samson was our wedding officiant and day-of wedding coordinator. We were very happy with her services. She was amazing to work with! Every meeting with her was productive. She calmed us and offered solutions when we felt stressed. As an officiant, she worked with us and offered great suggestions for the ceremony. The wedding script she made for us was perfect! The ceremony was beautiful. Prior to the wedding, she offered lots of good tips to help us stay on track and save money. On the big day, she stayed in touch with us to make sure things we were good. She also worked with all the vendors and took care of many things behind the scene so that we got to enjoy the day and didn't need to worry about the details. We highly recommend her services. Thank you for making our big day possible! Huong & Cat May 20, 2017

What a pleasure to have Brigitte Samson as our officiant on our special day! She helped us with vows and selection of readings and informed us of the order of the ceremony, relieving much work and angst for us. More than one guest told me they were so impressed with the both the words Brigitte used in the ceremony as well as her calm, pleasant voice. I was so happy she was our officiant and recommend her highly to anyone getting married. Katherine & Ric July 2018
From the first minute we met with Brigitte Samson, we knew that she would be the perfect officiant to perform our wedding! She was kind, funny, personable and was able to gauge our personalities right away. Through all our meetings she was knowledgeable, patient and understanding of our stress. She took the time to explain each aspect of the ceremony to us, and gave us the option of reading the ceremony before hand, so we knew what to expect. When we decided to write our own vows she gave us some examples and helpful hints to follow. On the day of the wedding she arrived on time, and looked stunning! She read our crowd very quickly, and even when there were young active toddlers running around during the ceremony she was able to focus on the union she was performing, and kept it fun and entertaining for everyone. We could not be happier with our choice, and highly, HIGHLY recommend Brigitte to perform your wedding. Thanks again so much for being a part of the best day of our life!! Shauna & Sean July 2018

Brigitte Samson took on the task of wedding officiant and wedding planner for our wedding this past February. Brigitte was friendly, flexible and very supportive during the entire process. Every meeting with Brigitte was productive and enjoyable. We were especially pleased with her assistance on making our dream day come true within our budget. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to vendors and services and we were satisfied with all her recommendations! Brigitte's day-of coordination was spectacular and allowed us to focus on each other instead of the details such payments, schedule, music, etc. Brigitte is bilingual, which was essential to us. She was able to work with us to have the perfect ceremony script that involved our family and friends. We highly recommend both her services as wedding officiant and planner!

We would recommend Brigitte Samson as your wedding officiant without reservation. We are residents of Ontario, who requested her services in January, for an outdoor ceremony in Quebec in May. Brigitte was incredibly knowledgeable and experienced; she gave us insightful counsel throughout our process, which turned out to be quite challenging. A week before our ceremony, our original destination was closed due to snow. Brigitte helped us pivot. Incredibly, on the day of our ceremony, our second location was closed due to flooding. Brigitte adapted and advised us through all these unforeseen changes; a rudder and guiding light as we navigated our way to a wonderful wedding with warm family memories. Truer words were never spoken! Denis & Barb 05/06/2017

Jeff and I would like to thank Brigitte Samson for making our day so special! We appreciated that she took the time to get to know us prior to the ceremony and all the suggestions she made when we were finalizing the details of the ceremony. Brigitte really made everyone comfortable during the rehearsal and provided great suggestions that contributed in making the actual ceremony go very smoothly and it resulted that we both were very relaxed, and we got to truly cherish every moment.

Mike and I are so happy we chose Brigitte (Samson) to be our Officiant. She is so easy going and very professional. She took care of every detail which meant the world to me as a anxious Bride. My worst fear came true when I arrived at my Wedding it started pouring rain. Brigitte had it all taken care of. She had 2 huge umbrellas waiting for us! It was so thoughtful of her, I couldn’t believe it. All of my guests thought the service was beautiful and that she was excellent. My Sister was so impressed she hired her for her Wedding next year. I am so grateful to Brigitte for making our Wedding so special and I am going to recommend her to everyone. Kathi & Mike 07/25/2015
