Joe McParland

Joe McParland has been a marriage officiant with All Seasons Weddings for over ten years and has performed hundreds of weddings in his lifetime. He is an outgoing and personable person who is empathetic and committed to the well-being of others. The comment so often heard about Joe’s weddings is that he has the ability to make the ceremony a very memorable, moving and personal experience, blending the right degree of humor/laughter with the proper degree of reverence and respect. In 2012 Joe was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his achievements and contributions to the life of his fellow Canadians, his community and his country. In 2007 he was a recipient of the Ontario Volunteer Award. In January 2015 Joe retired from 'day job' as a manager in the federal public service (CBSA) after 26 years of service. Now he volunteers his time with a number of charitable organizations and appears as an on-air media personality on TVCogeco, Windsor’s cable/community television station where he covers municipal politics. He is also a regular columnist, blogger and reporter for Windsor’s acclaimed BizX Magazine, and he is a much sought after public speaker who emcees various charitable functions in his community. Joe resides in Windsor and shares his home with his adopted greyhound, Victoria - the fourth greyhound he has rescued in the past 20 years.

Thank you so much for officiating what we feel was the best wedding ceremony ever!!!!!!! People are still talking about your impeccable timing with the boat honking down on the Detroit River to the paw prints with George and Lewis (their Golden Retrievers) on the marriage license. Kyle and I are beyond happy with how everything turned out. Our guests raved about the traditional, yet light hearted ceremony (just what we wanted!). In fact Karen from Canadian Club Heritage Centre said it was the best wedding yet! We will definitely recommend you to everyone we know who is getting married.

Joe McParland exceeded our expectations. He was incredibly friendly and helpful. We had written most of our ceremony ourselves, but when we met Joe he had some great additions. On our actual weddind day Joe made us feel really comfortable before the ceremony and he did a fantastic job during the service. All of our friends and family had really great things to say about him.
Ron & Greg
Joe McParland went above and beyond our expectations. He is a very caring and warm person and that comes thru in his ceremony. He involved those who came to witness our wedding, and also added humour which was perfect. He was fantastic.

Our ceremony could not have been more perfect. My guests absolutely love the way Joe McParland preformed our ceremony. It couldn't have been better he was just amazing. He even waited an extra 10 mins to start just to wait for my grandma to come. I will never forget that and I couldn't be more happier. I have already recommended your service to 5 of my friends who are getting married. My wedding day was perfect and magical I couldn't have been happier. All of my guests thought Joe was just wonderful. Thank you so much for making my wedding ceremony dream come to life.

Joe McParland went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable during our initial meeting and so that everything didn't come as a surprise on the day of the wedding! The office answered every question we had. If any of my friends ever get married, I'll pass along any information regarding officiants. Thanks!
