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
