Over the years, I have had the pleasure of working with wonderful couples and have helped them create their own special ceremony.
“Brenda was everything we could have ever wanted in an officiant and more. She made us feel extremely comfortable while marrying us when it seemed the world was falling apart.
We celebrated having a very private ceremony on May 9th 2020 when restrictions had just opened to 5 people.
Brenda brought extra pre-sanitized pens for each person to use while signing the registry, was cautious to follow all providence guidelines to a T and helped us transform a snowy May Saturday into a day to remember.
Brenda creates every single couple’s speech directly for them. It took a few months to crack down on what we really wanted as my husband wanted it short and sweet while I wanted a little dimension to it - she nailed it.
She even wrote us a beautiful speech for our fake officiant to have for our symbolic ceremony going above and beyond the call of duty.
I personally have recommended Brenda to friends and family recently and will continue to do so. Brenda is caring, compassionate and extremely helpful. You would be lucky to have her officiant your wedding.”

“Brenda Hamilton is a treasure to work with as we prepared for our nuptials.
Brenda is an organized professional who was able to guide us through both the marriage application process as well as provide us with suggestions with the ceremony.
Brenda is efficient as she communicated timeline reminders during a busy time of preparation.
Finally, Brenda is genuine as she performs the ceremony expressing the joy and gratitude of our special day.
She is highly recommended and we were very fortunate to have her present for our wedding.”

“Brenda is the consummate professional and was an absolute pleasure to work with as we navigated months of adjustments due to COVID-19 restrictions.
She kept our spirits up even though we twice had to push back our wedding date.
We decided to have a small ceremony in the midst of a pandemic and Brenda was so accommodating and understanding that it made the whole process bearable.
Thank you for getting us to the finish line Brenda and making our day a pleasant experience, despite the difficult circumstances."

“We really enjoyed working with Brenda!
She was such a big help with everything, she answered any of the questions we had, responded quickly to my emails, and was very helpful with all of my questions!
She has a wonderful personality, great sense of humour, and all around a pleasure to be around!
She helped make our wedding day special.
Thank You so much Brenda for all of your help, and being apart of our special day! “
Kelsey and Chase, married August 8, 2020 on family farm.
“Brenda was incredibly professional from the first email all the way to the post wedding follow up, through all of the in between.
She was incredibly helpful when walking us through the ceremony and allowing us to make decisions about what was best for us, and supportive of our wishes throughout the process.
When the pandemic forced us to change our plans, she was so supportive and helped us get through the process of finding somewhere to get a licence and re-planning our event into the beautiful, incredibly special, intimate micro wedding we had instead.
She was diligent and professional about keeping everyone at our event safe and making sure it was just as special as we had planned originally.
Would recommend to anyone in the area looking to get married in the future.”

“I am so thankful we by chance witnessed Brenda officiating another wedding last summer while checking out venues as we immediately knew she would be perfect for our wedding ceremony.
From the first time we reached out to Brenda, through having to reschedule our full wedding due to CoVid and planning a smaller ceremony, Brenda was nothing but professional and accommodating!
I also thoroughly appreciated Brenda wanting to coordinate her outfit to our wedding attire and being so organized!
We look forward to having Brenda officiate our vow renewal with full ceremony next year on the eve of our 1st Anniversary!
We highly recommend Brenda -Dolce Vita Wedding Officiant for your wedding nuptials! “

“Brenda was great to work with!
She is extremely organized and we cannot believe how easy she made everything for us (planning a wedding during COVID had a whole new set of challenges)!
She kept us up-to-date with all the changes happening with marriage licences promptly, provided drafts of our wedding ceremony, and was very responsive to all our questions!
The level of care Brenda has is unlike any other. She is THE wedding officiant of Kingston - look no further!
Thank you for everything, Brenda! “
Shawn & Ashley - married Oct. 3, 2020 – 4 Points, Kingston
“Brenda is an amazing wedding officiant!
In our search for an officiant for our wedding, we specifically wanted someone who would make us feel comfortable, be responsive, liven up a ceremony and for a humanistic approach for an officiant. Brenda was all that and more.
Between emails and an in-person meeting, we were able to solidify a type of ceremony as well as customize and smooth over any details (i.e. our vows, what we would like Brenda to say, etc).
Brenda provided excellent guidance as to what a ceremony entails and answered any questions we may have had. Her attention to detail is excellent; she even went out of her way to make sure she dressed accordingly to our colour palette for the wedding day.
Everyone at our ceremony said to us that she had a great voice and made the ceremony light and fun. Thank you Brenda for being our officiant and helping us continue with our wedding during a pandemic.
I highly recommend Brenda Hamilton to anyone looking for a humanistic wedding officiant!”
