Michel created a loving, spiritual and intimate atmosphere for the newlyweds that truly touched the hearts of the guests that witnessed the ceremony. We have heard nothing but great and positive feedback of personal touches to the ceremony that made it so special and unique. Michel took the time to prepare the ceremony taking into account all of our needs and walked us through the steps with a calming and reassuring energy to put us at ease. Thank you Michel for your sense of humour, your spiritual energy, your caring and special touches to the ceremony and for making our specIal day the most memorable and beautiful day of our lives.
Before the reception, before the meals and dancing, there is the ceremony. It is a special moment in a wedding day. It is when you take the vow. It is when you make the commitment to one another. It dictates the tone for the rest of this special day. It can be boring and tedious. Or it can be exciting, emotional and a lifelong memory for the couple and attendees. If you want the latter, then I strongly suggest you consider& pick Michel and Mariages à Bras Ouverts. My husband and I wanted a moment that reflected us. Spiritual but not religious. A ceremony that was entertaining, bilingual (not an easy challenge!) and tender. Michel created an atmosphere and narrative that captivated everyone. There was laughter, tears and smiles. He will meet you and discuss what is important to you, to your couple. He will find the tone and words that seem true to you, this is his remarkable talent. Merci Michel d’avoir accepter d’etre notre celebrant.
Reverend Michel Boulanger from Mariages a Bras Ouverts truly made our wedding ceremony unique, special and extremely memorable for us, our family and all of our friends who attended our wedding. We received comments from almost all of our guests regarding the level of professionalism, emotion, sincerity and well-timed humour that Michel brought to our ceremony! And it was entirely bilingual!
We would definitely recommend his services to any couple that would want a top notch officiant to unite them on their special day.

This was the biggest day of your life, you deserved an ultimate wedding experience. Thanks again for choosing me!
Michel did a fantastic job officiating our wedding. He took care of all of the paperwork (which was extremely helpful since we are from Toronto) and was both professional and very responsive to all of our questions throughout the planning process. We would not hesitate to recommend his services. Thank you!
Very professional who listens to our requests and what we expect. We would strongly recommend him without hesitation.
Mr Boulanger etait si professionel, experimente, drole et touchant. Il nous a fait rire et pleurer et etait parfaitement bilingue. Une ceremonie parfaite et qui a ete apprecie par tout les invites :)
Merci ce fut un succès ! Nous le recommanderons avec grand plaisir.
Thanks for the great service, would recommend to anyone!
Hi Michel, we are extremely happy that you were able to spend our special day with us, the service that you conducted exceeded our expectations in every way. We cannot count the number of compliments we received about amazing the service was and how well you incorporated both the Christian and Jewish traditions. Thanks again, Josh and Michelle
Michel Boulanger went above and beyond to unite us on a spiritual level. He performed a ceremony in three languages (English, French, and Italian)! We are very grateful for his presence on our wedding day.
Simplicité, disponibilité, personne très aimable, a répondu complètement à nos attentes.
We just got married yesterday and Michel Boulanger was fantastic! Our guests are still raving about how wonderful the ceremony was largely in part because of our officiant. He was always very flexible and his goal was to make sure our ceremony represented us as a couple. He included all of the special rituals that we wanted for our special day and made us smile, cry happy tears, and laugh throughout our ceremony. Thank you so much Michel! You made our day absolutely perfect. Merci!
Michel Boulanger was absolutely wonderful as our officiant for our wedding ceremony this past July. He was always quick to respond to emails (even picked up the phone in response to my emails at times to reassure or clarify) and he met with us right away at convenient location to go over what we wanted for the ceremony and show us what he could bring to it. We loved that he was intent on making everyone feel part of our celebration and he was very professional. Very flexible and made the ceremony light-hearted and also sincere. Our family and friends laughed, cried and many commented on how animated and captivating Michel was. They all said it was a very enjoyable ceremony. Everything flowed smoothly and it was nice that he made sure that everything was reflective of us.
We really had no clue who to get as our officiant, so we just trusted the reviews and were not disappointed!
How often do guests make a point of mentioning how much they enjoyed the minister and the ceremony?
Many of our guests did - and we agree with them.
Michel Boulanger made everyone feel a part of the proceedings and included just the appropriate amount of humour to put everyone in a great mood for the rest of the event.
Many thanks from Mirella and Glen.
Rev. Michel Boulanger is first class! He is gentle, kind, humorous , flexible, and truly loves his work. He stayed in constant communication with us, making our elopement absolutely perfect and effortless. He made our day unforgettable! I HIGHLY recommend his services.
We had our ceremony in French with Louise-Véronique Sicotte and it was wonderful and unforgettable. She guided us through the whole process since day 1 and took care of all legal aspects of our civil wedding. She guided us also to personalize our ceremony and make it as special as we wanted. Afterwards, she handed us an envelope with everything we needed to know for the next steps of getting our certificate, etc. It was very special and stress free, which we really appreciate.
