"When my husband and I got engaged, we knew it was the perfect time to plan a family vacation/destination wedding. After some research we decided we would tie the knot in Riviera Maya, Mexico! So the planning began. We soon realized that having a legal ceremony in Mexico was not quite as easy as it seemed. Wanting to avoid the stress, we opted to become legally married in Winnipeg. Marla came right to our house, and kept the ceremony as simple as we had requested. Marla was very easy to work with and extremely accommodating! She is knowledgeable about all types of weddings (destination included!). She understands the legalities involved in both a home town wedding or a destination wedding. She gave us great advice and helped us through this process very smoothly. Planning a wedding is stressful enough, chose a wedding commissioner that can take some of the weight off your shoulders! Thank you Marla!"
Samantha & Chris
"Thank you so much for marrying us. Chris and I could not have asked for someone better than yourself. You walked us through every step, helped us stay calm, and most importantly you filled the ceremony with love. We will forever be grateful that we had someone as amazing as you to join us on our special day.
Sincerely, The Schachts!"
Anita & Eric
"It was great working with you. You are very upbeat which is necessary for the work that you do – especially working with such a shy bride. You did a wonderful job and our day turned out perfectly. All your advice helped me a lot and made me feel very comfortable before and on the day of our wedding. Eric and I are pleased to have had you be part of our big day.
Thanks for all your help and advice."

"My husband and I had Marla be part of our wedding on October 3, 2015 located at Niverville Heritage Centre in Niverville, MB. Marla was very friendly, down to earth and even helped with making suggestions with our event planner on how the ceremony would be set up the night of our rehearsal to ensure everything would flow smoothly. She was very professional with how she introduced herself to not just us but our parents and wedding party. Her attire was very clean and business like. We didn't want a long drawn out service which was exactly what she delivered. Her communication skills were very clear and presented herself with a friendly upbeat personality. We both would highly recommend Marla for her services. She is very responsible and takes charge with looking after the paper work as we went on about enjoying our day together. Her service added to our perfect day!"

"You were fabulous, by the way! John & I got married at the Victoria Inn on August 8th and were very pleased with you!!!! - It was a last minute booking with you - as our original marriage commissioner got sick. We were both pleased with the ceremony!"
Jennifer & Alexander
"We contacted a few wedding commissioners in regards to our July 2015 wedding. Marla was our top choice, giving off a sense of professionalism and yet still being very personable. We were mainly in contact over the phone, and she was very accommodating of us being out-of-towners. We met up a few weeks before the wedding, to make sure nothing unexpected would be happening. Marla was very considerate to confirm with us that she didn't have fangs, and that our wedding would be safe in her hands.
Her prices were very affordable, and the service was excellent. She even made some extra time for us, when the bride told her the wrong time for the rehearsal. Thanks again! She put up with our last minute vow changes, and had a script available for us, if we caught a case of stage freight. Everything was well organized and she dealt with all the government forms for us, we just waited for the certificate in the mail. I believe she even coordinated her summer vacation around our wedding date! She snapped a pre-wedding selfie, and it's something fun we can cherish for our lifetime. Our ceremony was beautiful, and Marla fit in perfectly. We will never forget our special day, and would love to thank Marla for being apart of it. Your wedding day, is a once in a lifetime moment, we would highly recommend Marla for anyone."
Danielle & John
"Thank you so much for attending our wedding as our marriage officiant! It was so very wonderful having you, and though it is hard to tell how the group is receiving the ceremony while standing on that landing, I heard that everything was very well received.
Marla, your style proved to be effective and elegant. I am very happy that we went with you in the end and will gladly offer you as much publicity among our friends as we can make happen.
The whole affair was wonderful, and we have a very select group of people who have come to know each other much more closely than we could have hoped for outside a wedding. Overall, the event has been above our expectations. I'm sure we'll be sending out thank-you notes to our guests, and if I could get an address for you I would love to send you one as well.
We gratefully thank you,
John & Danielle"
Dianne & Gary
"Gary and I were married on April 25, 2015 at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. As with any bride and groom we wanted our day to be very special. We were very fortunate to find Marla as our Marriage Commissioner after months of looking for a marriage commissioner with no success, my son agreed to go through the process to marry us. Until I came across Marla’s website, I just knew it was meant to be after a brief initial conversation with her.
All the way through the process Marla was amazing, from helping us with our wedding vows that turned out amazing, to documents that needed to be signed, to keeping my nerves calm the day of our wedding.
We would highly recommend Marla she’s very professional, great communication skills, puts you at ease...not an easy task on the big day and makes sure the little things are taken care of.
Thanks Marla for helping to make our day so special both Gary and I truly appreciated it."
Joanne & Merle
"Marla made our surprise marriage a very special one. She did the ceremony as we liked and included family and friends via iPad/FaceTime. Without Marla we wouldn't have had any pictures from our special day. She's is a fun, kind and happy person to add to your wedding ceremony."

"What can we say about Marla, you did a fantastic job! She officiated our wedding, she was our MC, and she helped our dream come true. She is our friend and has the knowledge to help you too. She made our day stress free, she was our rock. If you want a straight up caring person, I would definitely recommend!"
