Andre Fontaine was awesome! He was patient and knowledgeable and friendly. He gave us helpful suggestions. Our wedding ceremony had some unexpected delays and Andre did not rush through the ceremony. He made our special day extra special. Thanks Andre! The office staff were very friendly. They explained the process clearly and were quick to respond to any questions we had. Thank you!

When we first met Andre Fontaine, we knew right away that he was the perfect person to marry us. His warm and friendly personality put us quickly at ease. He is very outgoing and has a lot of great ideas. We wanted our children included in our ceremony, so he suggested ideas that we included that brought tears to everyone’s eyes. We could always depend on Andre for our meetings, for the planning of the ceremony, and for our wedding day. He made us laugh and made us cry. I could not have expected as much from an officiant as we received from him, and could never thank him enough. I strongly recommend Andre for any type of ceremony. Thanks again, Michelle and Frank

Andre Fontaine is a people person and performed our wedding ceremony with tact, grace and flair. He was very helpful, attentive to our needs, made magnificiant suggestions to our concerns and interests. The ceremony reflected well our personalities and was a perfect fit for us. We would strongly recommend Andre as a wedding Officiant. Merci beaucoup André, vous avez fait en sorte que notre journée soit mémorable et parfaite et nous allons nous en souvenir pour toujours! Could not have done it without you.
Randy & Richard
Andre Fontaine was extremely attentive to our needs and requirements, and was in constant contact with us via phone and email to ensure that everything was on track. He also accomodated a last minute request to have Randy's daughters play a part in the ceremony and offered different suggestions in that regard. Andre spoke clearly and assertively in both French and English which was very important to us as we were adamant about having a bilingual ceremony. He went above and beyond his responsibilities. We are so glad that we used your services and selected Andre. He really did contribute to making this event memorable for us and everyone else who attended.

Thank Andre Fontaine very much for your help with our wedding. Everything went well for the day. The ceremony was beautiful and we are so glad that my Cantonese speaking mother could somewhat participate. We received good feedback from our guests!

Andre Fontaine, we want to thank you for doing such an awesome job as officiant of our wedding. You went above and beyond our expectations!!!! Your Vulcan Star Trek officer outfit was awesome, and the little touches of vulcan ears, eyebrows and hair was icing on the cake. You played the role of Star Trek officer to the T. All our family and friends have not stopped raving about our wedding.

Bonjour André Fontaine ! Words cannot express how delighted we were with the wedding ceremony. Drew would like to thank you for making the longest minutes of his life so relaxing and comforting with your soft spoken nature and calming humour before seeing me. Also being so patient with saying his vows in french. Our family and friends all thought it was a brilliant idea of having the celtic handfasting tradition with the fabric making the knot ! Voici trois photos de la cérémonie. Merci encore d'avoir fait le service dans les deux langues. Tout le monde a apprécié ce beau geste !

Hi André! We wanted to write to you, and express our deepest thanks for the wonderful wedding ceremony you put together for us. Many of our guests commented on how lovely and heartfelt the ceremony was. My colleagues at CAMH were especially pleased to see you, too, what a lovely surprise! I have attached some great photos that the photographer, Jean-Paul Cloutier, sent us from the wedding. Our best wishes to you, and happy holidays to you and your family!

Andrea & Graham
Andre Fontaine was absolutely fabulous! He went above and beyond our expectations to make us feel at ease and to personalize our ceremony to us - including special parts for our dog (the ring bearer). He had great suggestions and ideas to match our ceremony to the mood of our wedding and to our personalities. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a wedding officiant.
Josee & Jean-Paul
André Fontaine was warm, friendly and had a good sense of humour. He was easy to deal with and offered some great recommendations for the ceremony. He arrived on time and did a wonderful job despite the many distractions (my daughter was sick and cried through the whole ceremony!). Thank you for making the whole process straight forward and easy. From beginning to end it was a great experience working with your team.
Melissa & Philip
Andre Fontaine was fantastic. Both my husband and myself loved him and thought he was great with us and our guests. He was the friendly voice of authority we wanted, even making a few decisions on his own on my behalf so I wouldn’t have to worry about it. When we reserved our officiant, the office was very helpful and the reservation happened without any hiccups. When meeting with Mr. Fontaine, I warned him about a few of our family dynamics that he needed to keep in mind and he did. He guided us through a seamless rehearsal and was absolutely wonderful at the ceremony. He made sure to say “goodbye” before leaving and he followed through on everything he promised us. Thank you, Mr. Fontaine. You helped make our day perfect!!!

Robert et moi aimerions te remercier pour la superbe cérémonie d'hier matin. Tu as fait en sorte qu'elle soit spéciale et très intime. Nos invités ont été très touchés et impressionnés. Continue ton beau travail!
Jon & Nicole
We've said it before and we're going to say it again, thank you for your time and wonderful suggestions which made our day more special (i.e. The warming of the rings and the lovely poem.) We thought everything was great and wouldn't have changed a thing. We had several compliments (from people who've attended their share of weddings) on how well you did. One such compliment was "he's the best officiate we've seen." ‎Many thanks,
Dave & Sonya
Thank you again for officiating our wedding on September 10th. You really did an amazing job, and made it very memorable. Many people even thought you were a member of the family. I'm just sorry that you had to go searching for the DJ! Again, thank you so much!
