Francisca and I would like to thank Samantha Hendricks for providing amazing marriage ceremony. She made sure that all our documents were in order. She responded our emails promptly and answered all the questions we had. During our ceremony, her voice was very welcoming. Her readings were professional and the words she chose were also simple to understand. We are happy that we made the right decision to work with Samantha, and we will strongly recommend you to our family and friends. Thank you! Aug 2022

We were so grateful and happy for the service provided. Our tentative wedding date was Aug 21 but unfortunately, I was rushed to ER on 19th Aug. We weren’t sure if the ceremony was possible with so much up in the air. However, Samantha was extremely patient and empathetic and went to lengths to make it easier for us. She was consistently in touch with my partner and proposed other dates when we can conduct the ceremony. She was extremely thoughtful and made great suggestions. We could reach her easily and it felt like she put so much energy and efforts for our special day. I wasn’t worried as she was so responsive and was checking in with us throughout. It was a perfect ceremony. She was so cheerful and her aura added to the energy in the room during the ceremony. We loved having her perform our wedding. Thank you so much Samantha Hendricks ❤️ Aug 2022

Samantha Hendricks went above and beyond our expectations to help make our wedding one of the most special days of our lives. Through the entire process, she was prompt, professional, thoughtful, respectful and warm. She took the time to meet us ahead of our wedding to understand us as a couple and our vision for our intimate backyard wedding, while also providing very valuable and practical suggestions. She consistently worked with us to achieve that goal, and took the effort to incorporate aspects unique to our relationship. On our wedding day, she was calm, extremely well-prepared, and a delightful presence. She totally went with the flow to make it a truly memorable occasion. Thanks for everything, Samantha! We would recommend her without hesitation. June 2022

Samantha Hendricks did an amazing job as our officiant. She arrived at the agreed upon time, was flexible, and checked in with both of us to make sure things were going well. She was very warm and caring. Our family members thought she did an amazing job. We were looking for a modern and intimate ceremony and Samantha was able to provide just that. We appreciate your help in this process! All Seasons Wedding did an amazing job, as well, with answering our endless questions about getting married in Toronto. Thank you! July 2022

Samantha Hendricks has been absolutely AMAZING throughout the whole process and even after the ceremony! My husband and I highly recommend her! Meetings with Samantha were always so clear and so informative. She answered all our questions fully and made sure we understood and covered everything even to the colour of the signing pens. She has a lovely personality and caring presence - I felt very well taken care of during the ceremony as I teared up a lot, haha! Samantha had a handkerchief ready and kept me calm! July 2022

Samantha Hendricks was absolutely incredible to work with. We were so impressed with Samantha's organisation and professionalism from beginning to end -- we always felt like we could rely on her to make sure things went according to plan. And they did! The day was perfect and went off without a hitch, all thanks to Samantha's coordination with us and various vendors before and during the ceremony. I don't think the day would have been such a success with anyone else besides Samantha as our officiant. If we ever do this again, we know who we're calling! June 2022

My husband and I got married recently and we were lucky enough to have Samantha [Hendricks] as our officiant. Samantha officiated our wedding in both French and English which meant a lot to us as we could include all members of our family in our ceremony. Samantha is very approachable and always available for any questions we had. She never showed any judgement and was a joy to get to know. From day 1 Samantha was so professional and organized; she gave us insight and suggestions from previous weddings she had officiated. She would ask us to prepare certain aspects of our ceremony that we wouldn’t have even though of if it wasn’t for her! She got along very well with our guests and we had raving reviews from family and friends that attended the wedding. Even now as we are one week out from our wedding, Samantha has been very informative with regards to the process of obtaining our marriage certificate. When we hired an officiant for the wedding we got a lot more than that with Samantha and for that we are very grateful!! June 2022
Melissa & Eija
Samantha [Hendricks] was AMAZING! Based on other reviews, we knew we wanted her to be the one to marry us, and after chatting with her during our introductions, we knew it was the right choice! She was so responsive and so detailed in the lead up to the wedding. Not only that, but she’s hilarious, which helped us feel more comfortable and confident about saying our personalized vows in front of our friends and family. Even during the ceremony, she was providing us support. We absolutely loved having Samantha as our officiant, and we cannot recommend her enough. June 2022

We found Samantha to be responsive, attuned to our particular needs, flexible, and most especially, professional. She is very warm and caring and added so much to our wedding ceremony.

Samantha Hendricks was an exceptional officiant. Before the ceremony, Samantha provided clear, well-organized material, and answered all of our questions. Weddings can be a little stressful and it was amazing not having to have to worry about the ceremony at all. Totally stress-free! Samantha is very professional, and she offers a beautiful warmth that I don't know if others can offer. Our guests raved about how wonderful she was. I highly recommend booking Samantha for your ceremony. May 2022

Jennifer & Patrick
Words cannot express how grateful we have been to have Samantha Hendricks walk us through the wedding/marriage process. From our initial communication, we knew that we were in the most capable of hands. Samantha's thorough follow up assured us in the most stressful of times that everything would be perfect on our wedding day and even now as we navigate the certificate process she is still there guiding us. The ability to craft a personal ceremonial script based on one of our meetings, filled with joyous events and love really made the day that much more unique. She truly is magnificent and cares deeply about the couples that she officiates and it shows through her work and her personality. What we learned is that with Samantha, you are gifted with the utmost love, strong personal connection, laughter and the most perfect of wedding ceremonies that you can imagine. October, 2021

Samantha Hendricks was extremely informed and put us at ease. Her communication and support made the process feel easy and stress-free. She exceeded expectations, at every step -- from before and after the nuptials. She had a great attitude and was lovely to be around on the day of. I've already recommended her to other friends getting married next year. Josephine & Brendan August 2021
Gustavo and Elizabeth Aug 2021
Samantha was absolutely wonderful. She absolutely exceeded our expectations. Samantha performed our ceremony 2 weeks ago and we were so thankful to have her marry us. We had guests in person and we streamed the ceremony for guests who could not be there as well. Samantha made sure to address both in-person and online guests throughout the entire ceremony, and made everyone feel part of the occasion. She also got to know us as a couple and tailored the ceremony to reflect us personally. We did not feel as if we were just following a script used for everyone. Communication was always prompt and very clear every step of the way - from planning to the wedding day to after the wedding. We had no worries about the ceremony thanks to Samantha. She went thru every detail - what time she will arrive, when she will get our rings, the order of processional, who hugs whom after walking down the aisle, the exact script, where she will stand when saying our vows, when to walk down the aisle after the ceremony, to the process of paperwork after the ceremony. (This was very helpful as I have anxiety, and knowing step-by-step what to expect made me feel at ease.) She even made sure to ask what our wedding colours were, and brought pens to match the decor. We cannot thank her enough. We cannot recommend Samantha enough for your ceremony. Thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect. Thank you, Samantha! We are so grateful to have had you part of our wedding day!
Arshad & Michelle
My husband and I had the pleasure of having Samantha Hendricks as our officiant earlier this month. Samantha was wonderful to deal with - she was approachable, kind and compassionate. She took the time to learn about us as a couple and understand our vision for our ceremony. She sent us a copy of her standard script ahead of time which was just beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. Samantha was even able to assist our young nephews who were the ring bearers to come to the aisle and provide the rings. She was a delight and we could not be more pleased with the ceremony. Thank you for everything. Arshad & Michelle September 2021
Nick & Guilherme

Jane & Ben
Samantha Hendricks met all of our expectations and more. From our initial introduction all the way to the wedding day, Samantha always went above and beyond. Samantha's aura is exceptional— she is probably one of the best people we've ever met and couldn't imagine our wedding day without her. Samantha provided extremely organized details and walked us through every step of the way leading up to the wedding— and when the wedding day finally came, Samantha became our rock. Samantha showed up extra early to greet all the guests and exchanged genuine conversations with our families throughout the entire experience. Samantha ensured that everyone felt comforted, cared for, and confident throughout the entire experience leading up to, during, and after the ceremony. Samantha was a huge factor in making our wedding day the best day of our lives and has become a relationship that my husband and I will cherish forever. Jane & Ben July 2021

Let us first say thank you to All Seasons Weddings for the continuous support given to us throughout this uncertain time. They were there to answer any questions about changes due to covid, assure us and provide any support they could. I made so many calls in one day but they were not bothered they just kept answering my questions. Samantha Hendricks was my officiant and she was so kind, caring, helpful and chill. She was super prompt to reply to any messages and addresses our concerns as soon as possible. She spent time listening to my vision for my wedding and even made suggestions which I really appreciate. Any questions I had; she would answer promptly and in details. On my wedding day she showed up at the time she said she would and she was so patient. She performed a beautiful ceremony. One my family (both in-person and on google meet) loved and enjoyed. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing, caring, fun and has patience. She helped make my day so special.

We instantly felt a connection with Samantha Hendricks during our first meeting. As my (now) wife and Samantha are both teachers, there is a shared understanding and this helped build instant rapport. It was clear from the start she would make every effort to make our day special, and she delivered. Her thoroughness and organized approach for our ceremony was very much appreciated. She made us feel comfortable every step of the way. Despite having to postpone our wedding because of COVID, Samantha provided the much needed reassurance as things were changing. Our special day could not have been any better and a big part of that was due to Samantha. Kevin & Jessica March 2021

Samantha (Hendricks) was truly amazing!! Since the day that she contacted us she was always enthusiastic and there to help us. She was super easy to talk to and checked in every so often to make sure we had everything we needed. With all the changes with the pandemic, Samantha was always encouraging and always had kind words to share. She helped us through every step of the process. She also put together an amazing, intimate and personalized ceremony for us. We could not have asked for any more from Samantha!! We are so happy with the memories she created for us at our ceremony!

Christopher & Andreea
As soon as we met with Samantha we knew we wanted to have her officiate our wedding! Her enthusiasm and organization is evident right from the beginning. She comes with great suggestions and questions that even us as a couple didn't even think about. Communication was clear and she came up with the most beautiful custom script that outlined our story as a couple. Our wedding was impacted by COVID-19 and had to be postponed to a later date. Samantha during this time was extremely flexible with this date change as well as location change. She did everything possible to make this a special day for us and keep us on track day of! She guided the music and witnesses during our ceremony to ensure smooth transitions and even helped with fluffing my dress when needed. We couldn't be happier with the outcome of our ceremony and strongly recommend Samantha for any other couples! Christopher & Andreea August 2020
