Jeff was a key force in making our ceremony so beautiful, special and heartfelt. His perspectives on marriage and framing of our love story were so heartfelt and touching - our guests were super impressed (we received multiple complements on Jeff specifically!).
____________________

He strikes the perfect balance between sentimental and fun-loving, and is very open to (and capable of) tailoring the ceremony to match your preferences. We particularly wanted something more youthful and personal, and he executed flawlessly. From the planning sessions we had with Jeff in advance, to his poise and delivery on the day of, we couldn't have been happier with the service and support from Maeck Weddings.
____________________

We thought the party/reception would be our favourite element of the wedding, but largely because of Jeff, the ceremony ended up being the highlight of our day.

Thank you Jeff & Michelle!!! :) xo

Our ceremony was perfect! Everyone there was commenting on how lovely it was.

Jeff went above and beyond even after the wedding was over with a very detailed email giving us suggestions on where to go on our honeymoon in Hawaii.

I would highly recommend Jeff for anyone looking for an officiant.

Thank you Jeff!

Truth be told...the thought of planning a wedding terrified me! I had no idea where to start or how to coordinate the big day. At the risk of sounding dramatic, the day I contacted Michelle and Jeff was the day I felt total wedding bliss! This dynamic duo is just that; they are creative, enthusiastic, insanely organized and genuinely invested in the success of their clients big day.

Every interaction with Michelle and Jeff was fun loving, detailed and completely eliminated any stress or anxieties. With only a few short months to plan our NYE wedding, Michelle and Jeff knocked it out of the park. SERIOUSLY. Our family and friends to this day have not stopped raving about the incredible job they did. Hiring Maeck Weddings to plan our day was hands down the best decision and investment we made.
____________________

To sum it up, the best part about our interaction with Michelle and Jeff is that we never felt like clients, from day one we were friends, and that is something my husband and I will continue to be grateful for (yeah that's right! I said husbandddd)!

Working with Jeff and Michelle was such a great experience. Jeff walked us through every step of our ceremony and made it fit our personalities. Michelle's coordination relieved lots of stress on the day of our wedding and as well as the time leading up to our big day. Everything went off without a hitch and a lot (if not all) of that goes to the hard work and commitment both Jeff and Michelle provided!

It's safe to say Jeff and Michelle are the power duo of weddings. Highly recommended!

The ceremony is one of the most important parts of your special day and you would honestly be making the best choice to have Jeff be apart of it! We were so happy we chose Jeff to be apart of our wedding day!

We were so incredibly thrilled to have Jeff to be the one to officiate our wedding ceremony this past September. As half of the Maeck Weddings team, we had all the faith in the world that he would handle the ceremony professionally but also with the right amount of lightheartedness we were hoping for. From the get-go, Jeff made the process one of pure ease for us. He worked with us to create a ceremony outline that suited us perfectly and worked in all of our suggestions while giving some great ones of his own. He was always there when we had questions or needed advice on any aspect of the wedding that came up.
____________________

He was organized and thorough in his preparation - taking note of the little details of our relationship to make our ceremony as personal as possible. On the day, he made us and all of our guests feel like one giant family and allowed all of our nerves to melt away.
____________________

He lead us through the ceremony with enthusiasm and elegance. The amount of compliments we had on the overall ceremony afterwards was overwhelming and I know Jeff played a large part of that. We owe Maeck Weddings a huge thank you for the part they played in our most favourite day! We would recommend them both a million times over!

Happy and thoughtful, Jeff prepared the perfect ceremony for us. Cannot recommend enough! He walked us through everything from start to finish - drafting our ceremony with us, attending our dress rehearsal, and executing the most important part of our most important day.

Jeff is articulate, well-spoken, and works exceptionally hard to capture what his couples are about.

SO happy to be a Maeck couple!

When I was first starting to plan my wedding I wasn't really sure where to start and began asking other past brides and experts in the field what I should do first. Michelle from Maeck Weddings (formerly A Dream To Call Your Own) was referred to me by several different people so I thought why not meet with her and see what she could offer. From the moment I met Michelle her organization and vast knowledge of the field was apparent.
____________________

I made the decision to have Michelle coordinate our day of events and it was the best decision I could have made.
____________________

Michelle kept me on track with need-to-do tasks, connected me with some amazing vendors and answered all of my ridiculous questions quickly and with a smile. When it came to the day of Michelle did literally EVERYTHING. From setting up our décor to coordinating all of the vendors and putting out all of those little fires on the day of that no bride wants to have to deal with. All of my girls the morning of the wedding (myself included) couldn’t believe how efficient she was and that she truly was willing to go the extra mile to make sure the day ran smoothly. I would recommend Michelle to anyone that is looking for an amazing wedding planner and her and her husband for the ultimate team.

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!

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.

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 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.

Thank 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.

Where and how do I even begin to thank and praise Michelle and Jeff?

Michelle and Jeff, you have been the best decision Tyler and I could have made while preparing to get married in Paris, France.

We didn't speak the language, and we had never been, but there were three things tyler and I did know about our wedding:

1) we loved each other and wanted to get married.
2) it was going to be somewhere in Paris  
3) we needed YOU involved.

As as someone in the wedding industry I meet many suppliers, planners, and vendors. There has been no one that I have met, and instantly and connected with. You have a calming presence, that throughout the process made me feel calm, confident and reassured when things were not easy (including family dynamics, government elections in france, and global terrorism, like serious issues lol). 

You made not only the day of easy, but the week we had in France prior to the date, the quick planning trip we took last year was so easy, and all of the meetings we had leading up to those dates were so simple, exciting and productive. You and Jeff have a strong love for each other and your business. You are wedding superheroes.
____________________ 

You made the impossible possible for Tyler and I, and we have so much love and praise for you both. We had no stress, no problems, so therefore we could enjoy every moment. 
____________________

Tyler and I only wanted our closest family and friends in France with us to keep it so intimate, and you and Jeff have become closer than friends to us, you are truly family. We love you guys, your work, and your passion. Not having you would have resulted in the most stressful 2 years of my life, and I am truly so blessed and thankful my mom introduced us. Thank you again for being a sister, best friend, bridesmaid, translator, tour guide, and an inspiration on both a personal level and professional level.

Tyler and I love you, and cannot wait for our next adventure with you!
____________________

To all brides who need anything relating to weddings, please call Michelle and Jeff, I promise you, they are different from the rest. I would highly recommend them to any and all couples who need some help or advice.

The search for a planner to relieve our anxiety and perfect our day began.

After meeting Michelle and Jeff in person, we knew they were the perfect choice. They laid everything out step by step and helped us tremendously with everything from choosing a venue, the best vendors, all the way to the smallest details of the wedding. They were always available to chat and we are so thankful for their help!

We had planned to have our ceremony outdoors under a beautiful oak tree, however weather was not on our side and we had to make the call to move our ceremony inside minutes before we were to be married. We had made no real contingency plan to accommodate an indoor ceremony, yet Michelle was already putting a plan in motion. In less than an hour, Michelle organized and arranged a beautiful ceremony in the space that was already prepped for our reception. She managed our guests and staff gracefully without us having to worry about a single detail. We have had many guests reflect on how warm and intimate our ceremony felt and how the space was utilized so elegantly.

Thank you for being so flexible, creative and a bright source of energy on our wedding day!

Every text, phone call, Skype call and in-person visit confirmed we made the best decision of having Michelle and Jeff on our team.

They are the perfect combination of being warm and comforting and extremely organized and on the ball. Their hard work and attention to detail ensured that our day ran smoothly and that we were able to spend the time with our loved ones.

They worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that the day unfolded as planned and everyone was happy. We could not believe how smoothly they made our day and they nailed my planned little details to perfection. Thank you for helping make our day so flawless!

I’ll be honest, I had no intentions of working with a wedding co-ordinator. I figured “I’ve got this” and I would be a-ok to handle my own wedding…until it dawned on me about 3 weeks before the wedding (we planned our wedding in only 3 short months), since we were not having a wedding party, I wouldn’t have anyone to help me the night of the wedding (I wanted my family to be able to enjoy themselves so wasn’t going to ask them to help out) – enter Michelle to the rescue!! I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for going above and beyond on our wedding day Michelle. I realized the next day that I didn’t even see you go about doing the work we had discussed. It was that seamless!! I also realized this means you are very good at what you do! Your professionalism, organization, and happy-to-help attitude made my day that much brighter.

Your ideas leading up to the wedding helped lighten my load tremendously, and made me feel extremely supported. I was grateful that you were there to bounce ideas off of, and to know that you had my back the day of my wedding.

When Satch and I reflected back on our wedding recently there wasn’t a thing we would change about that day! To me, that means you and Jeff did an amazing job! Thank you for all that you did that day, thank you for allowing me to be a bride for the evening and not project manage my own wedding, thank you for taking the reigns and being so good at it!! Thank you for helping me create “a dream to call my own”!

Jeff and Michelle, Thank you for making our wedding day stress free! With a more "unique" wedding style, our wedding could have been stressful as it is not what many people are used to. Michelle and Jeff really made everything pain-free for myself and my hubby (and my mom!).
____________________

The day of the wedding, we were all able to relax and enjoy the festivities knowing everything was taken care of and that someone was there to ensure things were happening when they needed to.
____________________

Besides being organized and hard-working, you two really made us feel comfortable and we enjoyed having them around. You took any extra (and last minute) instructions or requests that we may have asked for with a smile, and took care of it without me having to worry if it would get done. Besides being there the day of and being so helpful, you also put us at ease during our meetings prior to the big day. While we may have been scattered with our thoughts and ideas, you ensured us we weren't and made us feel like it was all in control. Thank you so much for being a part of our big day and letting us enjoy it! We are so glad we had you two there!

Thank you SO much, Michelle and Jeff!!! When I was looking for a wedding coordinator, I had one thing in mind: someone who could take the "day of" stress right off my plate. You both did just that! From our very first meeting, I knew you would do a great job. You are both so easy to get along with, very organized, and always five steps ahead :)

Ben and I had the best day of our lives and did not stress for a second about the ceremony or reception. We knew you had it covered!

Michelle was absolutely wonderful to work with while planning our wedding! We had decided to have a surprise wedding and knew that it would be hard to pull off. Thankfully we had Michelle on our team! She was so helpful through the entire planning process, and did an amazing job organizing and coordinating the events of the big day! She made sure everything went smoothly and that the surprise went off without a hitch! The looks on everyones faces were priceless!

We are so, SO happy with the way everything turned out and know that we could never have made it happen without Maeck Weddings!

To anyone out there looking for an amazing wedding planner: 10 short months ago, my now husband and I were looking for someone who could help us through the process of planning our wedding. Although I had a pretty good idea of what we wanted, I knew having a professional on hand would be a great asset. Michelle and Maeck Weddings came up one day in conversation & we decided to meet with her and give her a shot!
____________________

Upon meeting with Michelle, it was an instant connection and we knew she would be a perfect fit to help us with our day!
____________________

It didn't matter the time of day, throughout our planning process Michelle was always quick to respond and a joy to deal with! She continually checked in on us to make sure we were on track. If we had any questions or insecurities, she was right there to help in any way possible, whether it was tackling a job or just simply talking us through it. Our main thing that we asked of Michelle, was to help with the day of our wedding, this included setting up the hall and ensuring the whole day and evening went off without a hitch. Her and Jeff were absolutely amazing on the day of our wedding!! They ensured all of the details and ideas that we had were put into place! They put in a full day, well over 12 hours, but always had a smile on their faces and were willing to help where ever it was needed!
____________________

Justin & I cannot thank you enough, Michelle and Jeff! Your help throughout our wedding process was nothing short of amazing.
____________________

Continue to do what you do & whoever decides to go with you for their wedding planning needs will be INCREDIBLY happy with your expertise and ongoing help and support. Anyone looking for a wedding planner, please take this lovely woman and Maeck Weddings into consideration, you will not be disappointed!!! Thanks again Michelle & Jeff!!

From day one, Michelle was wonderful to work with. We are a combination of nervous bride and happy-go lucky groom and Michelle found a way to work with both our personalities to put both our minds at ease about the process. Michelle truly went the extra mile for us, even going to help me try on dresses for the first time. Michelle came through for us on so many occasions. When our ceremony venue fell through, she was there to find us a new one. When I realized I hated my first dress, Michelle was there to talk me through it. When things didn't go quite as planned on our wedding day and we started running late, Michelle was there to get us back on track. She even lent her ear several times when we needed to vent. She was almost like an extension of our bridal party, she did so much for us and was honest with us all along the way. We hired Michelle for the full planning package, which included 20+ hours of pre-planning, but poor Michelle (and Jeff) did so much more! We truly cannot thank them enough.

If you want someone to ease your stress, advocate on your behalf, help you make important decisions, and ensure your day runs totally smoothly, we would recommend Michelle and Jeff!

I (bride) literally have tears in my eyes writing this testimonial because of how grateful we are to have met this awesome couple and have them help us create the wedding of our dreams.

Being fairly well-organized individuals ourselves, we weren't initially convinced that hiring a wedding coordinator would be entirely valuable for us, as we didn't envision our wedding to be overly extravagant or complicated; however, within a few months of beginning to plan our day, it became clear that the right wedding coordinator would be one of the most valuable services we could acquire to ease the planning and day-of execution.

It is shocking the amount of planning and decision-making that is required for planning a wedding, even when you're trying to keep it simple. The small details and constant questions during the weeks and days before, not to mention the day-of, can really detract from a bride and groom's wedding day experience when they're busy dealing with logistics like these, rather than focusing on what should be their only jobs: enjoyment and celebration.

Having mich to field questions, coordinate vendors, understand our vision and wishes, and take initiative to deal with whatever came up throughout the day was the best decision we could've made to ensure we and our wedding party and families were free to celebrate and enjoy the day we put together for us all. For all I know, the ceiling could've been falling in on us, but I knew Michelle would take care of it; or anything else for that matter.
____________________

It's true what 'they' say: the day flies by. My best advice: don't spend your day worrying about fine details when someone else could worry about them for you! But hire someone who has proven themselves to be a reputable, dedicated, high-quality and impressive professional. You will get the quality service you need and you won't regret it.

Our experience working with Michelle and Maeck Weddings was an absolute pleasure! Michelle was there every step of the way to keep my fiancé and I on track with our timeline. She has so much knowledge and expertise and in some cases helped us to think of things that we would have never thought of on our own. Her communication skills are outstanding as she responds instantaneously to every email, text, and query (even at late hours!).
____________________

If there was a detail or a last minute job that was not in the contract, Michelle wouldn’t think twice to go the extra mile to help out. Michelle also took the time to really understand our vision and tastes, and when it came to the day of, she nailed it.
____________________

I never thought it would have been possible to be so relaxed and stress-free at my own wedding, but having Michelle by my side, made it possible. Michelle completed the entire set up at The Cambridge Mill for us and it was better than we imagined. She was constantly on top of things during the night and made sure every detail was looked after. I have only good things to say about our experience working with Michelle and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!!

Working with Michelle and Maeck Weddings was one of the best decisions I made when planning our wedding!
____________________

We had a longer engagement and Michelle kept me organized and on track the entire time. She was so helpful every step of the way and was always one step ahead of me. She is extremely fast at getting back to you and always handles any issues in a matter of moments of you telling her about them. There were a few glitches with our reception site the day before and day of the wedding and Michelle went over and above to help make things perfect for our wedding day. Michelle helped to take my ideas and dreams and make them come alive right before my eyes. With a limited set up time Maeck Weddings was in charge of making sure the reception was all set up before we arrived and we could not have been happier with how everything turned out. Saying thank you will never be enough to Michelle for all the help, connections and encouragement along the way. She is so talented and a wonder to work with!

When we originally started planning our wedding from across the country, we figured that we could get away without a day-of coordinator. I had a clear vision of what I wanted, and didn't know if I could trust someone else to transform my rough sketches into reality. Even though our intention during our first meeting with Michelle was just to see what a day-of coordinator could offer, we were instantly impressed and convinced that we needed her help for our wedding. Michelle has an instinctive sense for how much to insert herself, knowing where I wanted to take the lead and where I'd benefit from extra help.
____________________

During our meetings and through email, it was clear that she wanted only to make our day as special as we pictured it could be, and spent time with us beforehand going through all the details so that we wouldn't have to worry on the day-of.
____________________

Proof of her focus and attention to our plans is evident in how smoothly our communication with her was, and ultimately, how beautiful our wedding ended up being. Michelle's organization is balanced by her flexibility: she answers emails at an astounding speed (especially considering our three hour time difference!), and graciously accommodated our hectic schedule once we were in town. She even transported some of the larger items we'd neglected to figure out how to get to the venue! The day itself was wonderful - our venue was beautifully decorated just as we wanted, and we stayed close to schedule. We owe so much of that to Michelle and Maeck Weddings! Thank you!!

Michelle answered all our questions and provided us with examples and suggestions for all the little details. Michelle took the time to understand and share our vision for our wedding day which allowed her to make sure our day went flawlessly. Even when our decorator mixed-up our decor, Michelle found a way to make sure we had everything that we wanted and that it was corrected before our guests arrived.

Michelle took all the stress off of us on the big day and ensured that our wedding day was absolutely perfect! Michelle was so helpful and we are so glad we had her for the biggest day of our lives.
