Wedding reviews

Matt and TiffanyBrien Thurston was terrific every step of the way. Brien did a terrific job at ensuring our wedding service was catered to us personally and he made sure we were happy and comfortable the entire way. Lastly, Brien was a terrific stress relief the day of the wedding as well. I would recommend All Seasons Weddings and especially Brien Thurston to anyone I know.

Thank you also for going out of your way to learn a bit of Polish, it was a hit with my mom’s family. It was fantastic getting to know you, and thanks for being such a memorable part of our wedding.

Laura and ScottThanks Brien for the wonderful ceremony! We had a great day and thought your ceremony was perfect! We had a lot of really positive feedback :) We also found the wedding bands right where I left them - on my parents' counter! Just got back from our honeymoon in sunny Mexico and we are refreshed and ready to continue our lives together. Cheers! Laura and Scott

Vanessa and DavidHi Brien, Thank you so much for making our day so special. I loved that you personalised the ceremony and equated our married life together as a new production with a new supporting cast and crew! Our family and friends were thrilled with your warm, friendly and gracious service. My Mom said that you were so genuine and wonderful. This was the best day of our lives and we will always fondly remember your part in it. Thank you!

Susan and SeanWe had multiple comments on how emotional our ceremony was, and that was in large part due to how Brien Thurston delivered the words! An absolute gem!

Susan & Sean

I have had many of our guests comment on how polite and professional and humorous Brien Thurston was. Being a last minute change, we weren’t sure how we would get on with Brien, but it all worked out. Our wedding venue fell through with 18 days to the wedding date. Debbie at All Seasons Weddings was very helpful in adjusting our officiant from Jack Birtch to Brien Thurston. This was as simple as a phone call or two. I greatly appreciated knowing that our officiant was one less thing I had to worry about and that your team was there to assist me. A great big thank you to your whole team!

David & Dominique

Thank-you Brien, The ceremony was wonderful and we had a lot of positive comments from our families and friends. Thank you for taking so much time to help us build just the right ceremony, and letting us make it our own. We had 2 individuals inquire about your denomination, as they noticed that the ceremony was "Kind of Catholic", but "not too Catholic" - a comment we really enjoyed, because that was exactly what we wanted out of the ceremony. I know you're not one to what to toot your own horn so to speak, but if you ever need a reference or want us to write anything more formal about our experience with you as an officiant, we would be very happy to do so. Cheers

Kyle and Erin

The ceremony Brian performed for us was truly special. Very professional, yet touching with a strong personal aspect to it. We could'nt possibly have gotten anyone more suited to the task. Thanks so much for a memorable ceremony Brien.

Susan and Sean

Brien was everything we could have possibly hoped for in an officiant. He was professional and at the same time so welcoming, and we always felt comfortable to ask him questions. We especially loved his openmindedness, and his frequent reminders that this was *our* ceremony and that he was here to give us guidance when we wanted it, but never pressured us in any way. We would recommend him to anyone else in a heartbeat! :)
