Rev. Cynthia Beare (aka The Red Shoe Reverend) officiated our wedding on July 30th, 2021 in Banff, AB. From the beginning, Cynthia was such a pleasure to work with. She devoted time to getting to know my husband and I, as well as our values and wishes for our ceremony. After our first introduction call and reading through Cynthia's carefully articulated sample scripts, we knew she would be the perfect fit as our officiant. Cynthia went above and beyond throughout the entire process to ensure we had the perfect wedding ceremony. Cynthia is professional, experienced, and it is obvious that she has a genuine love and passion for what she does. We were so blessed to have Cynthia present for our entire wedding, including the rehearsal dinner and reception, something that meant so much to us and our families. We'd like to thank Cynthia for being a part of our special day, she truly became a part of our family during this time. July 2021

Cynthia Beare was amazing to work with. Was more than willing to work with us as our wedding plans changed due to the pandemic. Her suggestions, and post wedding package full of useful information has been super helpful. Thank you for everything. July 2020
Cynthia was a pleasure to deal with, She was on time and had everything ready for our wedding ceremony. She even had to fill out the paperwork on the grass as the tables and decoration we had set up were all blown by the wind. As good Latinos, we were late and Cynthia was very patient and with a great attitude about it. She did the entire ceremony in Spanish, which was very well received by the Spanish crowd. We definitely recommend Cynthia for your marriage event. Aug. 2020
Cynthia Beare was amazing . Her ceremony was relevant on the day that it had a heavy rain storm ... “A hands that bind” along that line made us all very comfortable despite of the bad weather. Dale & Catalina June 2020
Cynthia Beare was amazing! She provided multiple options for us to choose what was read, she kept me in the loop on day-of when she arrived, and even provided a nice package afterwards for ‘next steps’ for getting our certificate and how to do the name change. I cannot speak more highly of her! Richard & Christine June 2020
Thanks Ms Beare, we enjoyed our ceremony a lot. You're the best. Romeo and Annmarie June 2020

Cynthia stepped in and saved our wedding last minute. We reached out to Cynthia who despite having less than two weeks to prepare, assured us that she would make sure we were ready in time. It was such a smooth process. We picked the unique parts we wanted to add and Cynthia pieced our puzzle together. She showed up early and prepared. Our guests loved our ceremony and gave us plenty of compliments about Cynthia. Having known us for less than two weeks, she completely captured the dynamic of our relationship and fit it to our unique outdoor ceremony. We can not express how great she was and would recommend her to anyone for any type of ceremony. She was wonderful. Thank you so much, Cynthia! Sean & Sarah June 2019

Cynthia Beare was THE best officiant we could have ever dreamed of. She is kind, patient, heart warming and gentle. She hold everyone accountable for their actions but also knows when to have fun and that is exactly what our wedding ceremony was: fun. An abundance of laughter, tears (happy) and just pure love and joy. We couldn't thank Cynthia enough. It was an honor to have her marry us. We would do it all over again, with her by our side. Thank you Cynthia. I hope every other couple gets the same amount of love you gave us on Daniel & Christine August 2019

We went with Cynthia Beare from All Seasons Wedding to officiate our ceremony. Cynthia was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She made sure we understood every step prior to our wedding day. She met with us to go through each step so we felt comfortable with every part of her service. She allowed us to make our ceremony exactly how we envisioned it. Cynthia was so patient and kind. She helped us take control of our large wedding party to ensure everyone stayed on track and felt comfortable with their part. Cynthia was so encouraging and made sure we felt calm during our rehearsal and our ceremony. Her words were calm and gentle and she put everyone at ease to ensure a smooth ceremony. We are so grateful to have had Cynthia be part of our day. She made sure it was very special for us both. Our beautiful ceremony was definitely the best part of such a perfect day and a big part of that was Cynthia. Thank you Cynthia! September 15, 2018
We contacted Rev Cynthia Beare through All Seasons and it was a positive experience all the way through. We met her and she was very polite and professional. She was well prepared and gave us a reprieve from all the worry and stress of planning our big day. She had much insight and helped us out a lot. Her energy and presence at our wedding ceremony was a lovely experience that many of our guests, as well as us, have shared since. From the two of us, a sincere thank-you to Cynthia for being a part of and helping to make the best day of our lives that much more memorable.
Rev Cynthia was a pleasure to work with and fulfilled both of expectations. She was very helpful in providing recommendations on how the ceremony should be executed based on her extensive experience. August 18th, 2018
Finding and having Cynthia as our wedding officiant was a blessing. She was organized, proactive, listened to what we wanted, and genuinely cared about making our moment it's most authentic and meaningful for us. After meeting with Cynthia just once we both felt very confident in her and trusted she would do a great job, which she did. Her energy helped us both to feel very grounded on the big day and we highly recommend her for your ceremony. Thank you, Rev Cynthia, for helping us create a unique and memorable ceremony that we will cherish forever. Elliott & Allyson August 11th, 2018
We were absolutely thrilled to have you, Cynthia, be the officiant at our wedding. Months before the wedding Cynthia touched base with us and asked us what our vision for our wedding was and if we wanted something in-particular for our ceremony. She then took our thoughts and ideas and provided us with sample ceremonies. About 2 months before the wedding, Cynthia touched base again and arranged a meeting to make sure we were all on the same page. At the meeting, Cynthia had a list of questions/things to think about that had not crossed our minds and we super appreciated her taking the time to share her expertise and experience in having the small details figured out before the big day. Having small details arranged makes everything run so much smoother and it gave us the opportunity to just relax and be in the moment on our special day. I loved that Cynthia took the time to come see me, the bride, before the wedding began to make sure I was feeling good and was ready to begin our day. It was a very nice and personal touch! The ceremony was wonderful. Cynthia had our vows printed and ready for us to recite. She had the signing of the register table already organized and labeled tabs as to where everyone signed so it was seamless and easy. Cynthia was always aware of where our photographer was and made an effort to remove herself from the "first kiss" photos. I am so so so happy with our experience and we thank Cynthia so much for making it absolutely perfect!
We are so grateful that Cynthia Beare was able to preform a bilingual (Spanish) wedding ceremony. Everyone mentioned how beautiful and unique to us our ceremony was. Cynthia was flexible to work with, even when unexpected events arose. She was knowledgeable and made planning for our ceremony a breeze. Cynthia is well organized, easy to work with and dedicated to making your wedding ceremony exactly how you envision it. Cynthia went above and beyond what we had expected and we would strongly recommend her officiant services. Thank you again Cynthia for all of your help and guidance along the way, as well as for being a part of our special day! Gracias, David y Stephanie
Cynthia did a great job. Our first meeting went well. She answered all our questions and also gave us suggestions for the wedding day to help us be more prepared.
Words cannot thank you enough. Your patience, detail and warm personality were exactly what we needed for our wedding. Thank you for your guidance and attentiveness towards planning the ceremony and adhering to all of our requests. We are truly grateful for your assistance and will always cherish the beautiful day you helped us create.
Cynthia, Thank you very much for being our officiant and for making our wedding special. Jessica and Adam
Cynthia Beare was wonderful. She made us feel at ease and helped us every step of the way through the ceremony.
Cynthia Beare was the officiant that our daughter arranged as a surprise for our vow renewal! We have a very warm, fun loving family and she fit in perfectly! The ceremony touched on how we met and our life together over the past 50 years. What was very special to us was having the Vow Renewal Certificate signed by our children and grandchildren. My mother who will be turning 100 years young this October, was also in attendance and she has witnessed our 25th vow renewal (which was also a surprise!) and now our 50th. However, the story doesn't end there, Rev. Cynthia Beare will also be the officiant at our daughter's wedding this September!! Thank you for making our anniversary such a memorable and happy celebration. ❤ Alinda & Bill, June 16, 2017
Thank you for everything! Gracias por todo! Mr. and Mrs. Didsbury, June 17, 2017
Cynthia Beare was wonderful! She was supportive and friendly, and helped us create a ceremony that represented our values, and how we feel about each other. She radiates happiness and makes you feel at ease in front of everyone!
Cynthia (Beare) officiated our Intimate mountain elopement at Moraine Lake. She was fantastic! From the beautiful ceremony that included personal additions, to her professionalism, to her amazingly bright and positive energy, Cynthia was the perfect person to officiate our wedding. She was completely flexible when we changed our venue location from lake Louise to Moraine Lake 24 hours before the wedding date. We ended up having a very chilly day and Cynthia was such a trooper. She still showed up early and was up for the short hike to our ceremony location. Thank you Cynthia for making our day extra special.
Thank you (Cynthia Beare) so much for the amazing ceremony! You were absolutely perfect! Thank you for the gift also, it was a lovely touch, we love it! Thank you again for being a part of our AMAZING day! June 25, 2017
Cynthia Beare offered everything and more! She was able to put one of my favourite love poems into the service as well as our personal vows. She was very engaging with our guests as well. She gave us a sweet little glass heart as a gift. I couldn't have asked for a nicer, more passionate person to officiate our wedding. The reservations office were helpful when I was making the deposit. You called back at your most convenient time and it was fast and efficient. I've already referred All Seasons Weddings to a few engaged friends !! :) Cynthia is the absolute best definition of a wedding officiant ! She is also a teacher so I knew our ceremony would be worded properly which also gave me peace of mind.
Cynthia Beare, Thank you so much for what was an amazing wedding ceremony. We truly appreciated your flexibility, guidance, and professionalism. We were so happy to be able to include our families and friends in Chile and Mexico through live streaming. We wouldn't have been able to do it without your Spanish officiating! We will let people getting married know about you for sure!
Cynthia (Beare) thank you for making our ceremony such a wonderful part our day. You were so kind and patient with us and the dogs. Thank you for all the laughs, tears, and even some barking it made for a memorable day. Thanks again making our day so special. Kayla & Neil Oct 1st, 2016

Thank you again so much Cynthia (Beare)!. It truly was a beautiful ceremony. Our wedding wouldn't have been complete without you organizing and completing the wonderful ceremony for us.

She is easy to work with and she will do all she can to make your day as special as possible. Thank you again Cynthia, you are amazing! Ashley & Mariamanda 08/06/2016
Cynthia Beare was a wonderful officiant for our wedding. In all our meetings she was kind, prompt and very organized. She helped us write our ceremony giving great advice! We would recommend her to anyone looking for a wonderful, simple officiant for their wedding! All staff at All Seasons Weddings were great and prompt.
When we were deciding on someone to officiate our wedding, we knew we wanted someone that had a great sense of humour and a willingness to not do a normal ceremony. From Cynthia (Beare)'s red facinator to her beautiful words written in honour of Mum, she went above and beyond what we had hoped for. She is a lovely lady and we are so blessed to have had her unite our two families. Thank you Cynthia for all you did to help make our day as perfect as it was!!
Cynthia (Beare) Thanks again for being a part of our day, Raegan and Derek

You truly get the idea that she loves love, and is happy to help merge the lives of two individuals on their special day. 5 Star rating!
