   Cam and Tess's Wedding 
On behalf of Deanna and Mark and the Hamlyn and Phibbs Families, we would like to express our appreciation to you for the orchestration and thought put into Deanna and Mark's marriage ceremony. 

From the first attendant walking down the aisle to the last guest leaving the terrace of the Sparkling Hills Resort, the ceremony was flawless. You managed to capture the essence of who Deanna and Mark are as a couple and the sand ceremony that involved Deanna's children in the blending of families was heartwarming and has left many wonderful memories for all of us.

Thank you for your attention to detail and for truly seeing into their hearts.  
It was everything we dreamed of and hoped for.

Thank you so much, Pauline and Vern Phibbs
Bonnie made our wedding perfect! She was very helpful from the time I first contacted her up to the actual day. 

She is a lovely, generous person and I felt perfectly confident that everything would go smoothly. 

She is professional and very organized. The ceremony she prepared for us was exactly what we wanted and she accommodated our every wish. 

I would highly recommend Bonnie for any couple wanting that extra special touch. The keepsake booklet she prepared was a wonderful added feature and will always remind us of that special day.

Chelsea and I really enjoyed working with Bonnie. She was easy to work with, very professional, and she focused greatly on making a ceremony that was uniquely about us and our time together.  She wrote a beautiful ceremony that told our story, and shared our hopes and dreams for the future as a married couple. 

Our guests commented on how unique and interesting our ceremony was rather than a typical generic ceremony. 

It made the experience more special for us and our friends and family, as everyone could follow along and relate to the words she had written. 

Thank you Bonnie for making our special day even more amazing! 
Chelsea and Steve Gronick

Bonnie was such a pleasure to work with, I couldn't have asked for a  better marriage officiant. She took the time to know who were were as a couple  and what made us unique. She took what she learned about us and developed  the most individualized beautiful ceremony for our wedding. It was perfect  and suited us and who were are as a couple. 

We live in Calgary but were getting married in Kelowna, Bonnie worked with  us, the time difference and even made skype appointments to connect with us while creating our  wedding ceremony. Bonnie encouraged us to make our own vows and to say them to each other, she  gave us great examples encouraging our creativity.  

My family and friends all agreed that the ceremony Bonnie put together was  the best, most unique, and individualized one they had ever attended. I am so happy Bonnie was our celebrant she was absolutely amazing and  wonderful.

"We were married on August 12th in Vernon BC. We had an absolutely beautiful ceremony and reception at Paddlewheel Hall. While planning our wedding we are so grateful to have connected with Bonnie, she took the 
time to get to know us and to organize and write a ceremony that was a perfect fit. Our guests still talk about how wonderful it was. One thing Bonnie promised was that our guests would walk away knowing us as a couple and they certainly did. 

We thank you Bonnie for your gentle comforting nature, always staying in touch with us throughout our wedding planning, for taking the time to write and officiate our ceremony and last but not least, for being someone that believes in love, the commitment of marriage, and has that in your own personal life.  

Wishing the very best to all other couples planning their special day. 
Thank You so much for making our wedding day unforgettable.

Cam and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing ceremony you put together for our wedding on 09-10-11.You went above and beyond our expectations. We have gotten so many compliments regarding the personalization and the way you delivered such a beautiful ceremony. 

I would strongly recommend Bonnie, she puts her heart and soul into making your day perfect!

Many thanks,
Cam and Tess Humphrey

Bonnie was nothing short of spectacular on our special day.

From the first time we touched base, to the day that she married us; Bonnie displayed enthusiasm and professionalism in everything that she did. She has a unique ability to custom tailor a wedding ceremony towards a specific couple and it takes a special person to bring it all together with such eloquence.

All of our guests commented on how much they loved our ceremony and our officiant and that they thought it was one of the more personal, touching and fitting to the couple that they had been to. We loved it!

I highly recommend Bonnie to any couples on the hunt for an officiant.

Mark and I wanted to send you a note to thank you so very much for making our wedding day so beautiful. The time you put into the ceremony in order to make it personal and heartfelt was very evident. 

Many of our guests told us it was the most personal, warm and sincere wedding ceremony they had ever witnessed. You perfectly captured who we are, both as individuals and as a couple. You ensured that everyone knew that, although the ceremony wasn't in a church, that God was at the center of the union taking place. That meant so much to us. 

It is hard to put into words all that your words meant to us on that day. We were even approached by guests of the hotel that watched from their rooms that said they could see how heartfelt the ceremony was. 

Thank you so much! Deanna and Mark Hamlyn
When my husband and I were looking for someone to marry us we were unsure of what we wanted in 
a Pastor. What we did know is that we wanted the ceremony to be memorable and meaningful. We 
could not have picked a better Pastor to marry us than Bonnie Schnieder. The ceremony Bonnie put 
together for us told the story of who we were, how we met and how we fell in love. It was a beautifully 
scripted story of us that contained both his and hers perspectives from the first moment we laid eyes 
on each other up to the moment he proposed. It enveloped the hope we have for our future, the pure 
joy we feel with each other, how we deal with difficulty, moments of humour and the love we share.  

Bonnie told the story with care, patience and a spiritual charisma befitting the moment. It was all so 
emotional and beautiful that we continue to receive compliments from guests and family who continually 
repeat that "the ceremony brought tears to our eyes". My husband and I are so happy with Bonnie and
 the service she provided that we would not hesitate to recommend her for anyone who wants a wedding ceremony that is personal and will have all your guests speaking of how incredibly memorable the 
occasion was.     Catia and Rob Walker (Married on August 24th, 2014)  
We cannot say enough good things about Bonnie. She was extremely organized and has an outstanding attention to detail.  

Our wedding ceremony absolutely blew our guests out of the water. We had countless people tell us that it was the best ceremony they had ever watched. We would absolutely recommend Bonnie to any of our friends and family to conduct their ceremony. It went off without a hitch and it was even more beautiful than we ever imagined our ceremony could be.  

We are thoroughly impressed. Thank you so very much Bonnie!

Ryan and Krista Cherry

"It was an absolute joy working with Bonnie. Even though we were coming in from out of town and never got a chance to meet her in person before the wedding, it felt like she knew us personally. 

She took a great amount of time putting together our story and getting to know each of us through email and phone calls, and I got so much positive feedback from our guests as to how lovely she was. 

If you're looking for someone professional, and with that warm spirit, I would highly recommend Bonnie."

Bonnie was amazing! My husband and I are so grateful that we chose her to be the officiant for our special day.  

The ceremony that she prepared for us was both personal and touching. She was able to capture our unique personalities and even added humour so that the ceremony was so perfect we are still hearing about how amazing it was. 

 She cared about the importance of the day, cared about us and made that moment in time something we will never forget. 

 I cannot tell you how grateful I was to see her smiling and reassuring face as I walked down the isle and feeling her calming presence as she spoke! That alone allowed us to enjoy the moment and really experience the importance of why we were there. 

Thank you Bonnie you will forever be in our hearts.  Victoria and Rafael
Hi Bonnie, thank you so much for being part of our wedding day and for helping to create such a loving, warm, romantic, personal atmosphere.

You are a very special woman with a true talent. 

We received a lot of positive feedback about that being one of the neatest, most original and beautiful ceremonies people have seen. I must agree as in all the weddings I have gone to, none spoke so truly or personally of the couple like that. 

We hope you bring the same happiness to other couples as you have to us, for years to come. 

You will always have a special place in our hearts.

Graham and I would like to thank you again for officiating our wedding ceremony, this passed July. 

The ceremony you put together was so beautiful and personal.
