I'm Laurie Becker

About Me

I recently moved to Sherwood Park, Alberta.

 

I'm into my sixth year of being a professional wedding officiant. I feel it's the best job in the whole world.

I'm also a Funeral celebrant.

A perfect mom (just ask me), a lover of gardening, travelling and pretty much all girlie things.

I am also very much available for destination weddings. Especially when it is winter here :)

HI!

 In Review

2022

I've just completed my 5th wedding season as a Marriage Commissioner. Whoop Whoop

The couple who invited 12 people to the wedding and ended up having about 112 guests.

Met many groomsmen who were hard to keep quiet during rehearsals, grandmas who were flower girls, ring-bearers dressed as bears, and a few brides who are now dear friends.

A rainbow wedding dress.

A couple who flew in from the US....who wanted to elope here and I got to secretly include some of their friends.

A handsome musician marrying his very loving husband.

Grooms coming to the wedding by tractors.

The best (maybe not according to the bride)..... proposal ever.

3 grooms who cried so much we had to stop the ceremony for a bit.

I had some very private weddings with very sad back stories. Had some very proud and emotional parents.

The groom with Asperger Syndrome.....Being able to tell his bride the words that he struggled to tell her directly.

All the weddings that almost got rained on this year.

A very wonderful theme this summer..... chill brides!!!! It was really funny seeing the grooms panicking more. No rings were forgotten and no wedding started really late. Phew.

Occasionally I charge nothing for my services. This year it was for a couple whose original wedding came and went. Only to find out that their "commissioner" was a fraud. It was a very devastating situation. All is good now.

I have loved getting to know people's hearts and learning what makes them happy.


Thank you for sharing your stories and for trusting me to create a ceremony all about you.


I really am blessed to have the best seat in the house while being in some of the most amazing areas in Alberta.

A huge thank you to all those who hired me, recommended me, photographed or filmed me.

Sorry I picked on a few of you
(not really).

Laurie made the day so special! We had all our 150 guests telling us how personal and endearing our officiant was. Laurie took the time to “dig up” background stories on us, she was humourous, patient and really encouraged us to just breathe and take our time. Great advice! We sure did enjoy our long awaited special day. Thanks to Laurie and her attentiveness, we will always suggest using her for any services she performs.

Thank you so much for everything Laurie, you were so wonderful and we loved having you. 

Marie & Tom

 Laurie is a fantastic officiant. We couldn't have had anyone better! She takes the effort to learn our love stories and personalize it in an intimate way on the big day. Our wedding ceremony was all about us and so heartfelt, and a big part of that was thanks to Laurie's special way of facilitating that. Thank you for making our day so special! :) - Chris & Nelushi

 Laurie was amazing to work with! From our rehearsal dinner to our ceremony Laurie made sure we always felt comfortable and at ease. She made our wedding ceremony so special , personal and stress free. We received a ton of compliments after the ceremony. We couldn’t be happier to have chosen Laurie for our big day. We would highly recommend to anyone :) Jenna & Ronnie

 I have known and loved Laurie for many years now - when I found out she was starting her journey as a marriage commissioner I told her that one day she would be marrying me and my future husband. That day finally came in July, 2023. I could not have asked for anyone better to share our special day with. We absolutely loved the personal details during the ceremony! We laughed, we cried, and we laughed some more. Every person I spoke to that day RAVED about Laurie and how amazing she is. She made us feel so relaxed & at ease and really embodied who we are in the ceremony. I cannot recommend her enough!!

 Was a perfect day in our eyes. With no rehearsal just a go with the flow ceremony Laurie couldn't have done a better job. She was fun, humorous, and made all of us feel very comfortable. She completely did as we asked of her and made our day the most special to us. Her pre-prep work was detailed and everything was done for us making our day so simple. Thanks Laurie your the best! 
Denise and Greg
