A Very Calming Presence

Thank you so much for your wonderful e mail! You really helped us to create such a beautiful, unique and really true to us ceremony that we loved. And so did our guests! We got a lot of complements on how great our ceremony was, so we thank you for that :) plus, you were a very calming presence whenever I felt stressed or nervous (both Friday & Saturday) which I appreciated.

You made it so stress free and you were an absolute pleasure to work with! I will enthusiastically recommend you in the future!! Thank you, thank you, thank you so very much!!

Tell her I Sent You!

This summer I had the absolute privilege of working with Jeannette Brigit of Turning Points. She officiated a wedding that I was coordinating at the St. Norbert Ruins. I must say we hit it off instantly, and became friends. She has a warm and friendly manner about her that shows in her ceremonies.

Jeannette owns Turning Points: Ceremonies Celebrating Life and officiates wedding ceremonies (along with funerals, vow renewals, baby naming... and so much more). She's been working with couples and families for over 20 years. She has a genuine kindness that makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed. What I liked about Jeannette is that each and every one of her ceremonies is unique and created by the couple. She does not have a standard script she reads... Jeannette will work with you to create a personalized ceremony that reflects you as individuals and as a couple.

So if you are looking for a marriage commissioner make sure you meet with Jeannette! You'll be glad you did. She is a real gem!

On Ceremony Writing

Thanks so much for all the help you've giving me planning a family wedding ceremony. You're experience went a long way to ensure the ceremony was pulled off without a glitch. It was so generous of you to spend time walking me through the process - and you have an awesome ability to inspire confidence. I'm so happy our paths have crossed!

I Balled my Eyes Out!

Jeannette, well yesterday evening after working a 12 hour busy shift JC and I read your email... and I balled my eyes out! Everything sounds fantastic! We'll go through the script you sent us and then send you our ideas. Thanks a lot, we are so thrilled that you are officiating our wedding :)

The Little, Big Day

It was great meeting with you & it is so perfect that you are so excited to make our little, big day so personal. On the drive home we said it was nice to sit down with a stranger & walk away feeling like we have known you forever.

Thank you again, Both George and I said we could not have asked for a better day. It was perfect. Thank you for making it perfect. The ladies at our wedding said they had never seen a Rose Ceremony before. They loved it & wished more people would do that. My Mom said ours is how all weddings should be - no big fuss. It was so relaxing - no stress, she said. I am going to highly recommend you.

Handfasting Ceremony

Thank you Jeannette!! What a beautiful ceremony you officiated for us with such caring and grace! Our guests thoroughly enjoyed it (as did we).

We Cried

We love the ceremony you wrote for us... I cried when reading the draft to David.

Layne & David, 2014

Wow, this is fabulous.

I really like that you've got a number of options in the ceremony & the writing is great. I read it out loud to myself & actually got a bit teary at parts. Thanks & great job.

Sandra & Nicholas, 2014

Awesome

Thank you so very much Jeannette, we are so grateful that we had such a great commissioner. You made our special day that much better. We totally love you. You are beyond awesome & we will totally be singing your praises to our friends. I cannot even begin to express how we appreciate you; there was no one else who could have done this for us but you.

Surprise Wedding

Jeannette married us last week. We had a tiny, surprise wedding at the Assiniboine Park Zoo. Jeannette did a wonderful job. She had everyone fooled-they thought she worked PR for the zoo. (You are a marvelous actress, Jeannette!) You did exactly what we needed and wanted for the ceremony. Thank you for being so helpful on our special day. I recommend Jeannette as an officiant for any event.

Happily Ever After

We had the privilege of having Jeannette Brigit officiate our casual backyard wedding in 1998. Jeannette provided wonderful guidance and support in the creation of our unique ceremony and her presence was like a soft breeze that wove its way through our guests, leading us all to our "Happily Ever After". We would recommend Jeannette to anyone looking for supportive and heartfelt officiating at their special occasion.

Lucky to Have You!

dove CELEBRATION OF LIFE & FUNERAL SERVICES dove

In my more than 41 years in the funeral profession, I must say I wish more of the clergy I've worked with could have been as pleasant, capable and compassionate as Jeannette. I found her to be very organized, personable, compassionate and flexible with the mathat needed her direction and comfort at the funeral of their loved one.

When I had to arrange a funeral Jeannette was there for me. she was very compassionate and caring and dealt well with the members of our family. She listened to my stories and gently asked questions about the life of our loved one. When I said I had written out some things I wanted to say she included it in the service - reading it for me, with feeling, because I felt I would be unable to do it myself.

Because it was a cremation, Jeannette helped us to arrange the table on which our foster daughter's remains would sit... our daughter's favourite colour was red so red was included.

The most memorable suggestion she offered was for me to carry our daughters urn out of the room at the end of the service. It felt like it was my last chance to "hold her" -- it was a very emotional moment.

I would recommend Jeannette.... she truly produces cersmonies that celebrates life!
