There are moments in our lives that we hold above all others. Moments marked not by cakes, flowers, or stationary – but by our hearts. At a wedding our hearts sing out for connection. Modern Celebrant wedding ceremonies celebrate this hugely significant moment in your life in a way that is bursting with your personality and a sense of timelessness. We take the time to discover what matters most to you and to understand the often competing priorities of blended backgrounds and families. You won’t look back in 5, 10, 35 years and say ‘What were we thinking?!”
These are hands-on ceremony creations. We bring the thoughtful conversation starters and our gifts as ceremonial visionaries. You get to soak in this special time in your life… before, during, and after your wedding day! Your voice shines through every step of the way. We promise. Now let’s make some magic!
After you watch these amazing videos (keep watching to the end to catch all the ceremony highlights!) and then scroll down to see how we can bring your wedding ceremony experience to life:
MAKING MEMORIES WEDDING JOURNEY
Our most expansive ceremonial experience. Couples are cared for exclusively by award-winning Celebrant Michele Davidson, one of North America’s most highly regarded officiants. Michele makes visioning and creating a wedding ceremony the best part of planning a wedding, tailoring the creative process to suit your lifestyle. Michele taps into all the things you want to express but can’t quite put into words. There will never be another wedding ceremony like yours; it will be more than you dreamed was ever possible. Warm. Funny. Tender. Inspiring. She’ll have you and your guests in tears at one point and grinning ear-to-ear the next. And don’t forget, she’s also Vancouver and Whistler’s best dressed officiant! Michele is happy to connect you with Vancouver and Whistler’s most talented and creative wedding professionals if you wish.
Suited to couples who embrace life with passion and purpose, a sense of community, and a little quirkiness too! People who know that a well-crafted ceremony (and the journey to creating it) is a catalyst for deeper connection. The highest level of expertise and conversation of any ceremonial experience. Very supportive of couples from different faith or cultural backgrounds. (Note: Confidentiality Agreements happily embraced for couples requiring media discretion.)
IMBUE I DO
Imagine if your wedding ceremony was infused from start to finish with your life experiences, stories and personalities. If it captured and shared the inward journey you’ve made together to reach this remarkable moment in time. If it engaged everyone’s hearts with your vision for all the beautiful possibilities you will step into on your wedding day. Wouldn’t you want to say ‘bring it on!’
As Celebrants, Lisa and Janis get to know what makes you tick in a way that is fun and memorable. And as engaging storytellers, they weave your personal stories into a river of words and emotions and meaning that flows through your wedding ceremony straight to the heart. They’ll suggest wedding rituals and traditions to resonate with who you are… not just because these sound cool or pretty! Janis and Lisa will help you remember and experience your engagement as a special time in your life. It’s easy to get immersed in planning and forget about the true heart of the day. So give yourselves the gift of imbuing your ‘I dos’ with your unique selves. Your handcrafted wedding ceremony will be an inspiring touchstone forever!
THE JEWELBOX CEREMONY
Created for couples wanting a taste of Modern Celebrant’s award-winning custom ceremonies but who are limited by timing, budget, or other factors. Just like colourful gemstones in sweet little box, our Jewelbox ceremonies are beautiful too – small but mighty! Entirely custom but shorter in length and edited in process. A very personal experience with your own thoughts and words artfully woven in. We want to shine out who you are and why your love is important, so we never ask you ask you to choose from a ‘sample script”. Our ceremonies evolve organically. That’s why they are genuine and true to you! Even if all you want to do is make it legal, why not do it beautifully?
LGBTQ WEDDING CEREMONIES
Do you need a separate line item? Yes, actually you do! Whether you call it a gay wedding, a same-sex wedding or something else entirely, co-creating wedding ceremonies for LGBTQ couples is a hugely special experience for us. A formal (and legal) ceremony to mark this ‘right’ of passage was far too long denied to same-sex couples. We know that there are many kinds of relationships and families. You are very welcome here… and welcome to be YOU! All that matters to us is that you share an abiding love and wish to honour and care for one another. We welcome ALL couples and promise a ceremony that celebrates your unique love story and commitment to each other. And yep, proud to say it is legal here in Canada! Choose any of the ceremonial experiences above. We’ll infuse it with you.
