Mike and I are so happy we chose Brigitte (Samson) to be our Officiant. She is so easy going and very professional. She took care of every detail which meant the world to me as a anxious Bride. My worst fear came true when I arrived at my Wedding it started pouring rain. Brigitte had it all taken care of. She had 2 huge umbrellas waiting for us! It was so thoughtful of her, I couldn’t believe it. All of my guests thought the service was beautiful and that she was excellent. My Sister was so impressed she hired her for her Wedding next year. I am so grateful to Brigitte for making our Wedding so special and I am going to recommend her to everyone. Kathi & Mike 07/25/2015

Brigitte Samson took on the task of wedding officiant and wedding planner for our wedding this past February. Brigitte was friendly, flexible and very supportive during the entire process. Every meeting with Brigitte was productive and enjoyable. We were especially pleased with her assistance on making our dream day come true within our budget. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to vendors and services and we were satisfied with all her recommendations! Brigitte's day-of coordination was spectacular and allowed us to focus on each other instead of the details such payments, schedule, music, etc. Brigitte is bilingual, which was essential to us. She was able to work with us to have the perfect ceremony script that involved our family and friends. We highly recommend both her services as wedding officiant and planner! Alexandra & Benoit 02/18/2017
We would recommend Brigitte Samson as your wedding officiant without reservation. We are residents of Ontario, who requested her services in January, for an outdoor ceremony in Quebec in May. Brigitte was incredibly knowledgeable and experienced; she gave us insightful counsel throughout our process, which turned out to be quite challenging. A week before our ceremony, our original destination was closed due to snow. Brigitte helped us pivot. Incredibly, on the day of our ceremony, our second location was closed due to flooding. Brigitte adapted and advised us through all these unforeseen changes; a rudder and guiding light as we navigated our way to a wonderful wedding with warm family memories. Truer words were never spoken! Denis & Barb 05/06/2017
We were both so pleased with how our wedding day turned out! A Huge thank you to Brigitte Samson for all that she did and all of your hard work to make it happen - our families were also both really appreciative! We are glad to recommend Brigitte Samson to anyone who's looking for a wedding officiant and planner. It really meant a lot that she was effortlessly able to be on top of many details as planner while doubling as officiant! Many thanks! Helina & Simon 12-18-2015
Brigitte Samson was our wedding officiant and day-of wedding coordinator. We were very happy with her services. She was amazing to work with! Every meeting with her was productive. She calmed us and offered solutions when we felt stressed. As an officiant, she worked with us and offered great suggestions for the ceremony. The wedding script she made for us was perfect! The ceremony was beautiful. Prior to the wedding, she offered lots of good tips to help us stay on track and save money. On the big day, she stayed in touch with us to make sure things we were good. She also worked with all the vendors and took care of many things behind the scene so that we got to enjoy the day and didn't need to worry about the details. We highly recommend her services. Thank you for making our big day possible! Huong & Cat May 20, 2017

What a pleasure to have Brigitte Samson as our officiant on our special day! She helped us with vows and selection of readings and informed us of the order of the ceremony, relieving much work and angst for us. More than one guest told me they were so impressed with the both the words Brigitte used in the ceremony as well as her calm, pleasant voice. I was so happy she was our officiant and recommend her highly to anyone getting married. Katherine & Ric July 2018
From the first minute we met with Brigitte Samson, we knew that she would be the perfect officiant to perform our wedding! She was kind, funny, personable and was able to gauge our personalities right away. Through all our meetings she was knowledgeable, patient and understanding of our stress. She took the time to explain each aspect of the ceremony to us, and gave us the option of reading the ceremony before hand, so we knew what to expect. When we decided to write our own vows she gave us some examples and helpful hints to follow. On the day of the wedding she arrived on time, and looked stunning! She read our crowd very quickly, and even when there were young active toddlers running around during the ceremony she was able to focus on the union she was performing, and kept it fun and entertaining for everyone. We could not be happier with our choice, and highly, HIGHLY recommend Brigitte to perform your wedding. Thanks again so much for being a part of the best day of our life!! Shauna & Sean July 2018
Brigitte Samson est formidable. Elle est douce et prend le temps de bien nous expliquer tout le déroulement et répond à tous les questions avec des explications précises. Le service et l'experience ont eté fantastique!
Brigitte played a huge role in making our day special and as beautiful as it was! Prior to the wedding, Brigitte created us a beautifully written bilingual ceremony to accommodate both our English and French families and she allowed us to tweak and twist the ceremony as we wished to truly make it our own. Brigitte is very open minded and receptive to demands and recommendations. She was great at keeping us calm and collected the day off and oh so very patient! Brigitte was awesome throughout the planning and execution of our wedding ceremony. Our families loved the ceremony and Brigitte’s tone and effortless ability to switch back and forth from English to French! Brigitte, it was a pleasure having you officiate our wedding! It was everything we wanted it to be! Thank you for doing such an awesome job, for your professionalism and for your transparent passion in what you do! Mr. & Mrs. Akiza. 09/29/2017
My husband and I would like to thank Brigitte for being part of our special day as our wedding officiant. I fully recommend her, with only positive input on her services. As neither of us have been married before we were a little nervous about who to choose to marry us and we wanted our day to be perfect. Brigitte definitely took that bit of nervousness away upon our initial meeting. Brigitte set up a meeting with us to our convenience. She was so open and friendly and we felt as though she was a long time friend and no stranger! The exact feeling you want on your wedding day. She explained every detail and sent us scripts, respecting our interest in regards to ceremony, and was available all along the way. She arrived ahead of time for the ceremony and was dressed professionally. She spoke clear, and loud enough that everyone could here. Everyone indicated that our ceremony was the most beautiful they've seen thus far. And Brigitte, you played a big part in realizing that for us.Thanks so much from us both and our family and friends! We highly recommend you! Vanessa and Raymond Vanderpoel. Sept 2017
We are so so happy to have had Brigitte as our officiant on our beautiful wedding day. Our ceremony was short and sweet just like we wanted .

We could not recommend her more! Thank you so much! Gabrielle and Jonathan Oct 2017
Brigitte Samson officiated our outdoor wedding in September and we couldn’t be happier with our choice! Given the importance of the ceremony for our wedding day, we wanted an officiant that not only understood the importance of the actual day, but also the preparation leading up to it. Her experience officiating weddings was clear from the start, as she provided clear direction and recommendations to help us in the planning of our ceremony. Brigitte was a consent professional and always available to answer any questions or concerns. She was flexible throughout the process and adapted herself to our special requests and needs. Following our wedding, we have received many positive comments regarding the great bilingual ceremony she conducted. We are truly thrilled with the service provided by Brigitte and would recommend her services to any couple looking for a dynamic, professional and flexible officiant. Once again, many thanks to Brigitte for being part of our very special day, Patrick and Kaitlyn Sept 2017
Mon mari et moi avons demandé à Brigitte d’être notre célébrante plutôt à la dernière minute. Elle a accepté avec joie et notre mariage s’est passé à merveille.

Nous la recommandons fortement, elle est très à l’écoute et notre famille a adoré la cérémonie. Merci Brigitte ! My husband and I asked Brigitte to be our officiant at the last minute.

Brigitte Samson is one of a kind and we could not have asked for someone better than her. From the moment we met Brigitte she truly understood Jess and my love.

We fell upon Brigitte Samson by chance, and are so happy we did! Brigitte is friendly, professional and has a very calming presence which really helped us get through our ceremony jitters. We got married the day after several tornadoes hit our city, so there were power outages, traffic lights out and just general chaos. Even though she had several other commitments that day, Brigitte was still there early, cool as a cucumber and ready to go. Several of our family members have remarked on how personal and special our ceremony was. Brigitte really listened to our story and what we wanted, while also providing her expertise when we were stuck. We highly recommend Brigitte to any couple looking for an amazing personalized ceremony!
Thank you again, SO much! We really couldn’t be happier with how the ceremony went. We received A LOT of compliments and everyone loved the way it was presented bilingually. You were such a joy to work with, thank you for all your help and guidance!! You were so great and helpful through the entire process, FM and I are so happy we found you and can’t thank you enough!!
We would like to thank Brigitte for the beautiful ceremony. We asked her to deliver the ceremony in French and in English, and we got nothing but compliments from our family and friends. She speaks beautifully in both languages and such a joy to work with!

We had a wonderful time at our wedding and we're so thrilled that you helped make it what it was! You were always available and guided us every step of the way. Thank you for making our ceremony so special!
Brigitte was a pleasure to work with. She was very professional, well organized and customized our ceremony to our preferences. She made a process that seemed very complicated simple for us to understand. During the ceremony, Brigitte was calm and it made us less nervous during our big day! Our ceremony was unique and heartfelt thanks to Brigitte. We definitely recommend her as an officiant!
Brigitte was the celebrant at our wedding, and she did a wonderful job of performing our ceremony. From the first meeting to the day of the wedding, she made the whole process enjoyable and really took the time to get to know us and our story in order to create a personalized, bilingual ceremony.

Merci Brigitte pour la personnalisation et ton écoute on recommandera tes services sans hésiter à nos proches. Merci!! xxx
Brigitte was simply amazing from the very first meeting. She was very friendly, flexible and easy to work with. We met with her before the wedding and got to know each other before coming up with the ceremony script.

Brigitte Samson was lovely to work with. She answered our questions, adapted the ceremony to our liking and officiated it like a true professional. Our guests had nothing but positive comments about our ceremony. October, 2018
Brigitte Samson was the best officiant we could have hoped for!. She is organized, friendly and helped the day run perfectly. Her calming words of wisdom before and during the ceremony made the process so easy. She definitely knows what she is doing! She was always available through email, and our in-person meetings and rehearsal were so helpful in ensuring that the day ran smoothly. We were lucky enough to hear about Brigitte by watching her officiate two other weddings, and we are so happy she was able to officiate ours! Thank you for everything, Brigitte! - Nicole and Kevin Feb 16, 2019
