I was wondering would any of you ontario brides happen to have any information about wedding officiants in the Sault Ste Marie area?
I have been told that in a city of 78,000 there are only 5. 3 on a website that intends to charge us the deposit before we even speak to an officiant and the balence when we first meet the officiant. What if we dont like this person! Erm no thanks.
The other two are just phone numbers, no website, no email, nothing.
Our friends suggested having a friend become an officiant for a day and doing it. Apparently you can do that in Quebec, but I cant find anything about being able to do that in Ontario.
Does anyone have any knowledge or advice they can impart. I want the person who is marrying us to be at least someone we can feel comfortable with.

You could give All Seasons Weddings a try:

I booked my wedding with them. Debbie is very nice when you call. If you fill out the online form first they will send you an email about how much it will be. But then I called to find out who would be available and she sent me an email about a day later with names of officiants in the area who were available and gave me their names and told me to call and speak with them before I sent a deposit. I spoke with both people and after a few phone calls and emails, we decided on the one that we felt was right for us.
After I paid the deposit I received another email from the with the officiant’s contact info, including email, and told that if I need to make changes or stuff like that I can contact the officiant anytime.
