Sonja Shepherd was so well organized, friendly and ready to give advice. She was patient and calm at our outdoor ceremony (due to on and off rain). She made our ceremony feel like we’ve known her much longer. She was excellent!! I would recommend her to everyone. October 2022

Sonja Shepherd was so wonderful. She has a very gentle soul and she just made our ceremony even more perfect. She was very accommodating! She was in communication with us leading up to the day. Although we choose not to do a rehearsal she was always willing to answer our questions and listened to our concerns/wants the day of. She even suggested including a moment for loved ones who had passed! We hadn't even thought about including this and it just made the day so much more special for my husband and our families. Everyone was very happy with the length of the ceremony and how it was structured. Our small backyard wedding would have not been the same without her. Thank you very much! September 2022

Sonja Shepherd was amazing to work with. She was very accommodating and always responded quickly to emails- answering a lot of our questions as we were coming from out of town! The day of our small outdoor wedding came with snow and rain 15 minutes before the ceremony started, leaving it a very cold day. Sonja was wonderful and we had our ceremony with everyone huddled in their warm clothes! Thank you so much for being a part of our cold but happy day. April 2022

Corinne & Steve
We knew we had selected the right person to share our day with through the kind conversations we had prior to our special day. Sonja you included our children in such an amazing way by suggesting they all sign the wedding certificate. Your words about our loved ones who have passed touched us and made our day more special. Thank you for being such a mind considerate human being, especially during these difficult times of covid. You helped us celebrate in a way we will always be grateful for ? Corinne & Steve

Sonja Shepherd performed an intimate indoor ceremony for our families in September. Even though we only met by telephone before the weekend of the wedding, she really felt like she got to know us as a couple quickly. Sonja is professional, warm and we couldn't have asked for anyone better to join us as husband and wife. She spoke from the heart and made our day so special with her words. We would highly recommend her for your wedding. September 2021

Sonja was incredible. She was so lovely and kind and was exactly the kind of person we wanted to officiate our small wedding. We had a chance to choose which vows we wanted, but she had a speech prepared that was absolutely beautiful and the words she spoke were a perfect representation of the love we have for each other. It was a perfect day for us and Sonja was a big part in making it so special. WE would highly recommend Sonja and All Seasons Weddings.

Sonja Shepherd was absolutely wonderful. She made our backyard wedding perfect. I could not have asked for a better officiant. I am so grateful I chose AllSeasons Weddings to help us plan our wedding. The staff there were so helpful. Because of COVID I was so stressed and we had to postpone our wedding from June to August. AllSeasons accommodated us with such ease making our wedding day perfect. I have told everyone, family friends and work colleagues about All Seasons and our officiant Sonja. would highly recommend All Seasons to anyone getting married. Thank you so much. I’m so grateful to All Seasons and Sonja for making our wedding perfect in an imperfect world. Our day was better than I could have ever imagined because of you. It was a day that I forgot about COVID and married my love. Sonja was caring compassionate and wonderful. We are forever grateful you helped us become Mr & Mrs! [August 8, 2020]

Sonja Shepherd played such a big part in making our day a special one! From our first meeting, she took our ideas and thoughts and planned a ceremony that was warm, funny and memorable for us as well as our family and friends. She kept us both calm on the day of our wedding, and made us feel comfortable when our brains were a little scattered and we forgot a few things! We are both so happy to have had Sonja lead our ceremony, and couldn’t have hoped for a better officiant! [September, 2018]

Melissa & Jason
Sonja Shepherd absolutely met our expectations. She went above and beyond! Sonja took the time to get to know us and help us feel comfortable. She helped create a ceremony that fit our personality. We are forever grateful. My favourite moment during our ceremony was when Sonja encouraged us to take a moment to really soak in and remember the moment. She encouraged us to look at one another, and then to our guests in the orchard. This moment will be forever in our memory.

My wife and I booked Sonja Shepard through your service as our officiant, and we couldn't have been happier with our decision. Every time we communicated with her leading up to the event she was sweet and kind. She helped us to put together the perfect ceremony and she delivered it wonderfully. We would highly recommend Sonja to anyone who is looking for an officiant for their wedding. She is an amazing woman.

Just had Sonja (Shepherd) as our officiant for our wedding. She was brilliant. Our wedding was super casual at our house and Sonja was perfect. She is a lovely, genuine lady. I highly recommend her for future brides/grooms. :)
