Over the years, I have had the pleasure of working with wonderful couples and have helped them create their own special ceremony.
“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.”

She was very accommodating and sweet.

“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!”
Don & Michelle, married August 15, 2020
“If you're deciding among officiants for your wedding, stop searching and choose Brenda!
She is very kind and easy going, but always organized and professional.
She communicated with us leading up to our day and made sure we hit various checkpoints of finalizing ceremony details, obtaining our marriage license, and was beyond accommodating given the rescheduling of our wedding due to COVID-19.
Brenda made the legal part of our day almost effortless, which allowed us to really enjoy all the other amazing parts of our wedding.
Thank you, Brenda!”

“One of the first things my Mother-In-Law said when my husband and I told her we were going to get married was “Oh! I have a friend that does weddings. I’d love it if you guys used her!”
We had put very little thought into the hows and wheres of it all so we were happy to accommodate the request. It was one less thing to figure out after all.
Am I ever thrilled that we did! The more I learned about Brenda Hamilton the more impressed I was.
When I mentioned to our videographer that Brenda was going to be our officiant she replied “That woman is like a brand name in this town. I can’t count the number of weddings I’ve shot with her.”
You don’t get that popular for nothing. Brenda is wonderful. She is incredibly knowledgeable about when and where couples can get wedding licences and she can also help explain how to get your name changed (if you so desire).
She sent us our wedding script well in advance. It was perfect. I only asked for one alteration and it was just that I say my vows before my hubby so that I wasn’t already a blubbering mess at the outset.
On the big day I barely ended up seeing her. In a good way though! I jokingly refer to her as my efficient, officiant, ninja! She let me know she was on site and then disappeared. I’m told she was making sure everything was just so at the ceremony spot. The photos of us signing our licence turned out better than they otherwise would have based on her suggestion that we change the placement of the desk we were signing it at.
She was mindful of all the new stipulations regarding social distancing that Covid has forced us to adhere to and yet we were barely aware that our wedding was taking place during a pandemic.
She was everything we could have hoped for and I could not recommend her more highly! In fact my sister-in-law to be already has her penciled in for next year! “
