Jeff and Michelle Maeck of Maeck Weddings are the absolute best! They are personable, knowledgeable, detail-oriented, organized, and passionate about weddings! They perform their duties with great care and professionalism, and they offer invaluable advice! We hired them to coordinate our wedding and officiate our marriage ceremony – they answered all of our questions throughout the year leading up to the wedding, met with us on multiple occasions, provided feedback while collaborating on the ceremony, respected our requests, coordinated a seamless rehearsal, and brought our vision to reality on our special day!
Furthermore, Jeff effortlessly read a line of Bible verse in French during the ceremony in order to incorporate my French Canadian culture – this meant the world to me and my family!
Finally, they were a source of comfort and laughter throughout the wedding day! It was much easier to relax and enjoy the day knowing that this power couple had everything under control! Honestly, we couldn’t have asked for a better team and would highly recommend Maeck Weddings to anyone!
Thank you for everything Jeff and Mich xo!

We hired Jeff as our officiant and couldn't be happier with our choice. He was extremely professional and organized from the first time we spoke. One of my favourite things was that he prepared our ceremony information in a Google Document so that my fiance and I could both contribute and comment to help make it absolutely perfect.
We chose to have him at the rehearsal which made things move quickly and smoothly. He was assertive in organizing the group without being bossy at all.
He also helped to calm both of our nerves and make us more excited than nervous for the next day.
At the ceremony he was fantastic - speaking clearly and concisely and delivering what we had agreed on.
Although he was a bit more expensive than other officiants that we talked to, he was by far the best choice and we couldn't be happier!

Michelle and Jeff were truly indispensable throughout the entire wedding planning process. My fiancé and I live 10 hours away from our wedding venue which should have made the planning process extremely difficult. But with Michelle and Jeff’s help, the planning was so stress free.
We could have never pulled off this wedding without their support, advice and non-stop attention to detail over the last year and a half.
They were always available for Skype conversations when we were in New York and meeting us in person at a moment’s notice when we were back in Canada.
This is not to say that if you live near your venue that Michelle and Jeff’s expertise would not be an extremely valuable addition to the planning process.
Their experience and great relationships with venues and vendors ensured we had the perfect day.
In the days leading up to the wedding, including the day of the wedding, we have not seen anyone work as hard as Jeff and Michelle to ensure every last detail was carefully considered and executed perfectly. The day was flawless and they deserve all the credit. And they did all of this in the background ensuring the focus of the wedding was on our celebration.
We can honestly say this is an investment you won’t regret.

Steph was so helpful and easy to get a hold of leading up to the big day. Our wedding ran so smooth and we were able to enjoy the day worry free because of her. Looking back, we can't imagine going through all of the preparation and executing our final vision for our special day without the help of Steph. We had excellent feedback from our wedding party and family members, as Steph made a wonderful impression on those she met and spoke with. In fact, my sister has already said she wants to hire her for her wedding, and she's not even engaged yet!
We highly recommend Steph and Maeck Weddings. For those who are contemplating if wedding coordination/planning is worth it, believe us, you will not be disappointed with Maeck Weddings!

We hired Maeck Weddings for Full Wedding Planning, and had Jeff as our officiant, and we are so glad we did.
Michelle and Jeff are very good listening to what you want, providing gentle advice when you need it or ask for it, but are never pushy. They are devoted to helping you put together a day that reflects YOU. They are very responsive and answered my barrage of emails promptly and with enthusiasm.
They provide excellent vendor recommendations. This ended up being far more helpful than I realized it would be. Every vendor we worked with provided excellent customer service, was very good at their craft, and fit within our budget. It was a relief to not have to spend hours researching vendors and then worry about whether I’d chosen correctly.
We worked with Jeff to create a personalized, non-traditional ceremony, and it was perfect. The most common piece of feedback we received after the wedding was how much people loved the ceremony.
Planning a wedding is intimidating - it’s a huge party, a big chunk of money, and though we’ve been to our fair share of weddings, planning your own is a whole different beast. We were overwhelmed by the options and paralyzed by indecision. As planning got going, the initial excitement about the wedding was starting to be replaced by fear that it wouldn’t be fun or that it would end up not really reflecting us and what we wanted.
Once we hired Michelle and Jeff, the fear and intimidation went away.
You never feel like ‘just another client’. They are genuinely excited for you and so passionate about what they do. On the day, you can just relax and focus on your spouse and your guests.
Thank you, Michelle and Jeff, for an unforgettable day.

Michelle & Jeff - words cannot begin to describe how thankful we are for the both of you. You helped make the most intimate, personal and important day in our lives the absolute best day we could have ever imagined. It would have not been what it was without you both. The praises we received from our friends, family, vendors and venue on what you both did for us speaks volumes to how instrumental you were to our day.
When we got engaged we thought we could do all the planning and set-up ourselves - I mean honestly, how much work can it be? However, as the months passed and the list of things to do began to build, we knew we needed help and we needed it from the best. Throw on top of that not living in the city we were getting married in - even though it was only 45 minutes away - made everything much more difficult and time consuming than we could have ever imagined.
After grabbing coffee with you both, we knew we struck gold and our prayers were answered!
From the first introduction email until the weeks after the wedding, you have continually gone over and above in everything you've done. We cannot say enough about you both. The knowledge, passion and expertise that you brought to every email, meeting and phone call was instrumental in making the wedding not only stress-free and run smoothly, but made it the best day of our lives. Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do.
You conduct yourselves with such professionalism, yet you seemed like friends from the get-go and we could not have been more pleased with the service you provided - and even the friendship the ensued.
We will continue to recommend you both - for event coordination or officiating - to every person we know because couples are truly missing out if they don't choose you.

Jeff and Michelle, simply put, are one of the best investments you can make in what is many people's most important day (yet!). When you are planning what could be the most expensive party of your life, they are the people you want to have on your team to ensure the day goes smoothly and that you don't pull your hair out planning. They ask questions that get you thinking and talk you off the ledge should you need it.
In addition to being some of the most gracious and kind people you'll ever meet, they are insanely professional and do their best to know exactly what you want so on the big day, things just happen.
Not only having worked weddings with them in the past, but having them help with mine, I can honestly say that choosing them is not a decision you'll regret!
