” Thank you Sandra (Ruch) for your professionalism. It was a pleasure to have you as our officiant to the start of our life together. Sandra had a gentle personality, dressed very professional and had great shoes. We have nothing to say except great things.” David and Wayne
Sandra Ruch was absolutely amazing! She went above and beyond to provide us with a ceremony that my husband and I both loved. She provided with us with many readings and gave us an outline of how the ceremony would go. She was professional, responsive and gave us lots of ideas! Our guests thought the ceremony was beautiful and memorable.Thank you so much Sandra! Kenana & David 09/17/2016
Sandra Ruch went beyond our expectations, she was kind and really guided us through the entire process. I have already had numerous people reach out to me asking for Sandra’s information – she was a huge hit. Sandra was truly magnificent. She was accommodating with us being out of province, she provided so much guidance in the process and really gave us a warm feeling. She has the combination of a really heartfelt smooth tone with genuine excitement and love when performing your service. We would recommend her to all. Kale & Justin
We had the absolute pleasure of Sandra Ruch officiating our wedding ceremony. From the moment we met Sandra it was clear that she truly cared about us and wanted our day to be tremendously special. She spent an evening getting to know us and helped guide us through what turned out to be a very personalized, well executed, and beautiful ceremony. Thank you Sandra for caring so much about us and delivering a beautiful ceremony. Andrea and Rob
From start to finish my experience was fantastic! Everyone at All Seasons Weddings made our official wedding ceremony easy plan and they are extremely efficient in planning and wonderful to communicate with. Sandra was our wedding officiant and I can’t say enough about how pleasant, kind and wonderful her spirit is. When I first welcomed her into our home, I felt like I had known her for years. She is warm and caring and took the time to get to know us. Initially we had planned to have Sandra come to our home and sign our marriage certificate but she made us feel special and put the care into her role to present a sweet speech and really highlight what it means to commit to marriage. We had already had a symbolic wedding ceremony at our destination wedding but Sandra still made our quaint living room gathering feel special. Thank you Sandra! I talk about you to all my friends getting married and really hope that you can spread your kindness and spirit to other couples. You really left and impression on us and thank you for being our officiant! Courtney & Allan
