My wife and I had the honour of having Tess Porter marry us and we are so beyond thankful and happy she did. Not only was she outstanding at making the entire ceremony so romantic, she brought laughter and tears, and our guests were so impressed with her professionalism, her clarity and her overall presence. Our day wouldn’t of been the same without Tess, and we are so genuinely happy she made our day SO perfect. An amazing experience, an amazing person, anyone getting married would be lucky to have Tess officiate.
Tess Porter made the whole experience so smooth and worry-free. We did not have a rehearsal but we felt confident we knew what to expect from our meeting with Tess. Tess made everyone involved in the ceremony comfortable and relaxed. She told us exactly what to expect and was a huge hit with our guests. I would recommend Tess to anyone who asked! [August, 2018]

As we approached our wedding date, Tess (Porter) exuded confidence and extended her support and experience to better prepare us for what became the most memorable day of our lives. Tess is responsive and professional, and was able to capture our guests’ full attention throughout the ceremony. I have since recommended Tess to another lucky couple whom I feel will be in great hands. Thank you, Tess and to the members of All Seasons Weddings. Alek & Sara, August 2018

Tess Porter was amazing. She made the ceremony beautiful with her words and her charisma. Thanks for everything! Brett & Kayla Aug 2018
Tess Porter was an excellent officiant and we enjoyed working with her throughout the whole process - we received many compliments from wedding guests on her officiating! She was flexible and understandable with us, encouraged us to craft a ceremony that was not too standard and very tailored to who we are and to what we wanted our wedding to represent. She was also very easy to work with, even from overseas - we didn't arrive into Ottawa until 6 days before our wedding, but we never felt like the distance hindered us working with her in any way. We would wholeheartedly recommend Tess to anyone looking for a kind, flexible and caring officiant.
Tess Porter was the perfect person, soul, and energy for our love. We couldn't have been more blessed to have her to celebrate this very important moment in our lives. From the first meeting to the weekend before, to the day of - Tess gave us more than enough support to plan the perfect day. Our guests had nothing but great things to say about her especially given the emotions of our special day (pop up surprise wedding). We are so lucky to have met her and shared this moment with her.
