Gerry Oglan was an absolute delight to work with! His ceremony was beautiful. We deferred to his expertise with most of the ceremony, and he delivered a beautiful ceremony. Where we did want specific details included, he was sure to add them in exactly like we wanted. He was reliable and quick to respond to our questions. He took the initiative to reach out to us during the planning process. We did not have to worry about a single thing, and we have nothing but kind words about Gerry! Thank you so much! October 2023

Gerry Oglan officiated my wedding last weekend, and I can honestly say that the ceremony wouldn’t have been the same without him. From our first zoom call with him to the day of the wedding and all the in-between prep meetings and email exchanges, Gerry was always quick to respond and easy to work with. He accommodated our wishes while working with us to create the ceremony we envisioned. On the day of the wedding, he delivered like a natural! He’s great at what he does. Highly recommend Gerry to anyone looking for an officiant for their big day. October 2023

We were very fortunate to have Gerry Oglan as our wedding officiant on Sept 2021! He is very personable, professional, and he helped sooth any nerves that we had before going into the big day! Everybody at the wedding really enjoyed his delivery and found great pleasure meeting and interacting with him. My elders (history buffs) enjoyed the added content about how wedding rings date back to roman times, in addition to the historical symbolism. I would strongly recommend Gerry as your future wedding officiant. From our initial meeting, vow discussions, ceremonial wedding and legal documentation; everything he did was performed with subtle perfection! Thanks for being a vital part of our special day and cherished memories. Kurt & Norie [Sept 2021]

Chris and Danielle
"When planning the biggest day of our lives, we knew that an outdoor wedding in our backyard was what would make our day perfect. The stress of building our outdoor venue was furthered with finding the right person to help us in saying our vows. All Seasons was paramount in connecting us with Gerry. After reading Gerry’s bio and having our initial meeting with him we knew we were making the right choice. Gerry is nothing short of fantastic. He is kind. He is considerate. He is a professional in his work. He is congenial and it shows how much he deeply cares about you and your significant other during the planning process. The wedding ceremony was everything that we had imagined, and Gerry led us through with quiet cues and laughs. After the ceremony, our guests in attendance remarked at how evident the strong relationship was that we had fostered with Gerry over the past year. My wife and I would recommend Gerry, without reservations, to our family and friends. Our most important day was all the more perfect and special with him leading us! Thank you Gerry!" Chris and Danielle October 2019

Frank & Alexandria
Gerry Oglan was an absolute pleasure to work with! Upon first meeting he got to know us and understand our style - simply yet thoughtful. He delivered a ceremony that was exactly that. Gerry knew we were nervous, and guided us through the ceremony and words with a subtle and confident style. We got many compliments from guests that the ceremony was "perfect for us" and that made us so happy. We had a weather issue and our outdoor ceremony had to move indoors with only a few minutes notice and Gerry adapted to the change without blinking and eye. Gerry is thoughtful and intelligent, and brings a sense of humour and lightness to his work. We would highly recommend Gerry to anyone we know! Thanks for being such a big part of our big day! Frank & Alexandria May 2019

Jacqueline & Geoff
Gerry Oglan helped us to create a ceremony that was full of joy, lots of fun moments and love. He helped us balance new ideas we had and still add lots of traditional elements. We were able to enjoy the ceremony, stress free, and listen to every word. He helped touch upon the modern ideas of wedding vows being in constant change and always being reworked in a marriage and also spoke to the old, loving traction of marriage. We feel he helped us have a contemporary ceremony with traditional vows. Gerry spoke eloquently and helped guide a great ceremony (that wasn’t too long!). Everyone commented that our ceremony was full of love and “so us”. No better comment. Gerry was always quick to return emails and easily available for meetings. Any couple would be lucky to secure Gerry for their wedding. [Pic courtesy of John and Samantha Butler Photography]

Gerry (Oglan) is exceptional! From the time we booked all the way through to a follow up after the wedding Gerry was attentive, very patient with us and willing to tailor our ceremony to our needs. We had a unique set of circumstances leading up to our wedding and Gerry was our guide. Very helpful, always smiling and his ceremony made many laugh and many cry. He did it all! We want to say a huge thank you for marrying us- if we had to do it again, we’d choose you! Looking forward to renewing our vows with Gerry :)
