I echo what Renée had to say but want to add a small piece of my own. The personal and couple reflections to be a great way to start the emotional trip of our marriage. It felt as if we were packing our bags for a long trip and you encouraged us to think of what we needed for the trip by poring over the details of our love story. Your help and Read more
Dan and I were married on May 30, 2010 by Michele Davidson. Having decided to forgo a traditional church wedding in favour of a secular locale, it was even more important to us that our vows reflect the seriousness of our commitment to one another and marked both the solemnity and joy of this occasion. In the absence of a religious exchange of vows, we still wanted to imbue our ceremony with a sense of occasion, community, and love. Read more
Michele, you crafted a ceremony that was so incredibly personal; it felt like a true friend who had known us for a long time wrote it for us. We spent the entire ceremony being focused on your words, and watching the expressions of our loved ones as you delighted them with the story of our falling in love – and yes, you DELIGHTED them too! I did not expect 150 of our guests to come up and describe how Read more
“We were so lucky to have Michele create our ceremony for our elopement, it was magical. She was so calming, professional and had an amazing energy. As the two of us were riding up out of the fog from the chairlift to the Gondola, I felt such a transformation of going from one place to the next. Although I did not have my mother or two sisters there with me, she was that beautiful soul that calmed my excited butterflies beforehand, thank you so much! Our two witnesses talked all night about how special the words were you said. They were so impressed by you and what you had created for us. Blissfully in Love,
- Sarah and Ryan
“We really wanted to mark the significance of our daughter’s new life with a special day of celebration. As we do not hold to any religion or specific spiritual tradition, we did not have a formalized way of celebrating this moment for our family. Michele did a beautiful job of integrating our most personal beliefs and ideals into a child honoring ceremony that was meaningful and authentic. It is was a day that we will never forget.”
- Jesse and Tanya (and Lachlynn)
Thank you so much for such an extraordinary ceremony! It was more than we ever imagined. You captured the heart of it all, and the love between our two children. Everyone commented on your service and thought you were so wonderful. With your grace and poise you reminded me of a high priestess! It’s amazing what the power of a wedding brings up – the past, the present and the future all are there in the room on the one day. It takes a very special person to bring it all together and you did that with such eloquence.
- Zonda (mother of the Bride)
Thank you for your guiding hand in planning and your major role in everything that happened at the interment and memorial ceremony afterwards for my mother. I’ll always remember meeting you at my door and being awestruck by your radiant aura. As you know, I was full of anxiety about what I would do for my mother and probably begin to didn’t relax until after the ceremony was over, but it was so worth it, and couldn’t have been done without you. You have such elegance and grace and have certainly found your calling in life. I thank you profoundly.
“Dave and I can’t thank you enough for making our wedding day a remarkable one. We both are so honoured to have had you there. You are a special gift to all who come in contact with you. Friends who weren’t even there read the ceremony and were brought to tears by your beautiful words. Those who were there, felt what Dave and I felt in the air. There aren’t enough Thank Yous to express our feelings. You will be a part of our lives always.”
- Love, Michelle and Dave
Michele is amazing. My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with her. From the moment I found her website, and then again at our first meeting at our loft, I knew she was the one I wanted to marry us. Our ceremony was truly a celebration of the love my husband and I share and Michele played a critical role in ensuring our day was special and that it will always be treasured. Read more
“You created an incredibly special day for us, with the Baby Blessing she led for our baby boy. The service was a fantastic mixture of tradition with individuality. It let us feel like we were marking our son’s birth – and naming him – in the wonderful tradition of a public ceremony. But it was also refreshing to have an alternative to a religious service, baptism, or christening. Michele, you were the perfect person to help us celebrate our baby in this way. You’re creative, inspiring, supportive, and totally professional. Everybody there was moved, and had a wonderful time.”
- Lynne and Richard
“Thank you for guiding us through this difficult time. Mom’s Ceremony of Remembrance was a beautiful patch of blue that honoured the wonderful person, mother, and grandmother that she was.”

“A belated thank you for the moving and joyful ceremony that you conducted for the wedding of Mélissandre and Thomas. Although we thought we knew Thomas and Mélissandre very well, your words made us discover some aspects of their relationship that we were not aware of. And discovering these aspects made us love them even more. I just wish that my mother – whom Mélissandre dearly loves – had been able to join us for this marvelous day!
- Best regards from a very grateful mother, Suzanne
For us, Michele completed our wedding day. I’ve been to many weddings with quick, forgetful ceremonies that most guests just wait to get over with. When reflecting on our wedding day, our guests’ feedback is that it was the most heart-warming, personal, intimate and memorable ceremony they’ve ever seen. Michele took the time to get to know us, even though we live across the country and revised our ceremony until it was exactly what we envisioned. And the end result was indeed magic. The ceremony reflected us both as individuals and as a couple and we had time to stop and take it all in. It was funny, sentimental and joyful all wrapped into one. Though our entire day was a great success, it will be the ceremony and the moment we actually became a married couple that I will cherish the most.
- Thank you, Tasha and Dustin
We anticipated an important emotional passage but could not have imagined the powerful impact of the Divorce Ceremony on everyone present. Michele brought us to a collective present moment in which the wounds of past conflicts could heal and new possibilities replace the tired culture of blame. We were reminded of all the moments in our lives that called out to be blessed, embraced and celebrated. We were honoured to be a part of something so beautiful and meaningful.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for leading my Mother Blessing ceremony yesterday. I have never had such an incredible experience in all my life. The energy and warmth and love in the room will certainly see me through the next few weeks, my labour, delivery and well beyond. I can’t imagine it having been any other way or led by any other person than you.”
“Thank you for an amazing memorial. Everyone I spoke to said that Jackie would have loved it and everyone was so impressed by you and the way you captured her essence. I can’t thank you enough for the work that you did. You brought focus, healing and positive reflection.”
- John Paul
Working with you was a reflective process of discovery that allowed us to look inwards, to share who we are, and the resultant ceremony that you wrote and shared with our guests was a meaningful translation of our unique love story. Your professionalism and truly deep commitment to your role as Celebrant is outstanding! Thanks for being a big part of our day!
- Todd and Meghan
Thank you very much for your good services, for which you received several compliments from our family and friends in attendance. Above all we appreciated your sincerity, sensitivity, and listening skills. This surely helped give our preparations for the memorial service greater focus and calm.
-Thank you, Alan Franey
Michele was really great from the beginning. She did a completely custom ceremony which reflected our multicultural family. She was very flexible to our needs and put in endless hours of work to make sure the ceremony went smoothly. She kept us on track with deadlines and completed things way ahead of time, so we didn’t have to stress/worry. I wouldn’t have picked anyone else to do it for us. She was perfect. Everybody cried. She also has a great voice that projects very far (we had some elderly guests who were heard of hearing). She was extremely professional, prompt, flexible, and 150% worth the money. The ceremony she wrote we will treasure for the rest of our lives. I constantly re-read it. She is brilliant!
