I'm Laurie Becker

About Me

My husband and I recently moved to Innisfail, Alberta.

 

We met on E-Harmony 10 years ago. I fell in love with him at about the 3rd date. And I kissed him first. :)

Between the two of us, we have three grown children, a Goldendoodle, and a very spoiled MaineCoon.

I'm into my fifth 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, sewing and pretty much all girlie things.

HI!

 In Review

2021

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

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).
:):)

And my husband, your patience while listening to all of my funny stories, worries, moments of self-doubt, having suppers and wine ready for me most Fridays and Saturdays of the summer, thank you!!!!

~~I'll love you every step of the way~~
