Matthew & Bethany
Joe McParland was an amazing officiant. We loved how accommodating and helpful he was with the planning of the ceremony. We loved all the personal touches that he was able to include in our ceremony. September 2021
Jessica & Eric
Joe McParland was fantastic to work with. He was very professional and supportive throughout the entire process. We were planning our wedding from out of town and during the pandemic - Joe was flexible as our wedding date changed, and helped us to connect with vendors for our ceremony space. He truly went above and beyond for us. Our event took place at the Capitol Theatre (Joe’s recommendation) - and it was spectacular. During the ceremony Joe kept a great balance of humour and sincerity and was well-spoken, easy to hear - without a microphone (just as he said he would be lol). We cannot thank Joe enough, he truly made our day special! June 2022

We have already had numerous guests from our wedding inquire about Joe, and about All Seasons. We cannot rave enough about Joe! He was absolutely amazing and brought light, fun and laughter to our ceremony - exactly what we wanted! He took the time to get to know us, our story together, and our personalities, and brought so much of that to our ceremony, you would swear he had known us for years. September 2022

Our ceremony could not have been more perfect. My guests absolutely love the way Joe McParland preformed our ceremony. It couldn't have been better he was just amazing. He even waited an extra 10 mins to start just to wait for my grandma to come. I will never forget that and I couldn't be more happier. I have already recommended your service to 5 of my friends who are getting married. My wedding day was perfect and magical I couldn't have been happier. All of my guests thought Joe was just wonderful. Thank you so much for making my wedding ceremony dream come to life.

Paige & Kyle
Thank you so much for officiating what we feel was the best wedding ceremony ever!!!!!!! People are still talking about your impeccable timing with the boat honking down on the Detroit River to the paw prints with George and Lewis (their Golden Retrievers) on the marriage license. Kyle and I are beyond happy with how everything turned out. Our guests raved about the traditional, yet light hearted ceremony (just what we wanted!). In fact Karen from Canadian Club Heritage Centre said it was the best wedding yet! We will definitely recommend you to everyone we know who is getting married.
