“The secret to finding the deeper level in the other is finding the deeper level in yourself, without finding it in yourself, you cannot see it in the other.”
Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials.
As a Marriage Commissioner I perform civil service ceremonies constructed to convey the meaningful elements of your personal principles while conducting the legal requirements as stated by the government of the province of Alberta.
That said, I offer a variety of packages beginning with a simple Elopement at $150.00. The Elopement package provides a basic ceremony and includes travel in and around the Okotoks area. This is a popular choice if you desire an intimate but legal ceremony that does not require rehearsal or extra attention to developing an elaborate ceremony. Many couples that are heading off on a destination wedding just need to be legally wed before they go.
A more traditional or formal wedding service would be $300.00 which includes rehearsal and extra time spent with you in personalizing your ceremony in many ways unique to the bride and groom and their families and even pets etc.
I am happy to speak in person or by phone or skype etc as well if you would like more information,I can hold your date tentatively but require payment ( usually an e-transfer is easiest) to commit this time to my schedule.
I look forward to hearing more about your goals and ideas for your ceremony & to answer questions specific to your vision.
Also, feel welcome to browse around at my ' weddings.by.shelley ' facebook page for updates, and ideas.
After the e-transfer has been received, I will email you two or three simple sample ceremonies. (The blue coloured font contains legal and binding verbiage but otherwise feel free to edit , modify, or delete ;)
We can mention any special event , have both sets of parents give their blessing as discussed earlier, include important occasions, pets, family, memories, goals or even music that you and your fiance have shared that are meaningful...or non of the above and simply perform a legal ceremony!
My weddings.by.shelley facebook page has examples of vows and ideas too, if writer's block creeps in....
I am here to support and celebrate with you and to keep it fun, let me know if you need help with anything, Shelley

There is no remedy to love but to love more.
- Henry David Thoreau
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,—I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!—and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
- Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Sonnet from the Portuguese
Laughter is Good Medicine " I’m yours 100%! All sales final"!
From rolling on the floor cracking up to giggling under your breath, Researchers, Physicians and Grandma know that laughter is the Best Medicine; it is a pain reducer, stress reliever and even increases endorphins and dopamine.
Be inspired to raise the roof on those endorphins with a good dose of humor on your wedding day!
"From silly to sarcastic, pair your sense of humor with a quote that tells it like it is. There’s nothing like comedy to draw people together. "
Marriage is getting to have a sleepover with your best friend, every single night of the week.
- Christie Cook
The most important four words for a successful marriage: “I’ll do the dishes.”
It is sometimes essential for a husband and a wife to quarrel—they get to know each other better.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Marriage is not just spiritual communion; it is also remembering to take out the trash.
- Dr. Joyce Brothers
