Calgary & Area Marriage Commissioner
I’m Wilma Dodge. I have been a Marriage Commission for many years and have officiated upwards of 500 weddings. I’ve helped hundreds of couples plan their ceremonies, their vows and their special rituals. Over the years, I’ve worn a ton of hats and can help you turn your thoughts into words that evoke just the right blend of sentiment, humor and tradition. From the tone to the invocation, together we can plan every element and every moment of your commitment ceremony to be genuine, memorable and true to you.
Casual or formal. Traditional or non-traditional. Intimate or elaborate. I fully embrace the diversity of this city and each of my clients. While we may be different in our beliefs and our cultures, there’s beauty in our commitment to love and I’m honored to be a part of it.
Let me help you tell the love story that has led you here. Let me tell it the way you want it to be told – with warmth, personality and from the heart.
Ceremonies that come from the heart. Not from a script.
We are so grateful that Wilma was able to be a part of our special day. She is so kind and has such positive energy that glows. Not only did she conduct the most beautiful ceremony for our elopement, she generously offered to pick up my flowers on the way out of town. My husband and I chose the elopement package as we wanted to get married on a mountain top. Wilma showed nothing but excitement when we told her that the way we would be getting up the mountain was by helicopter. Wilma was the best wedding officiant we could have ever asked for. She read the most beautiful poem during the ceremony and made our day extra special. She was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her.
Wilma was the best officiant we could have asked for to make our wedding come to life! She is so kind and truly wants the best for you in every possible way. Every part of our ceremony was customized to our vision, and Wilma was more than open to accommodating our not so traditional vow format. Wilma took the reigns at our rehearsal and everyone felt comfortable knowing she would guide us through the entire process. She was amazing at working with the photographer as well to stand in certain places so we could get the best photos. I would highly recommend Wilma to any one who is looking for an officiant who will make you feel ‘at home’ even when all eyes are on you.
Wilma performed our wedding on August 18, 2018 and she was wonderful. She made both of us feel extremely comfortable. She involved our guests and we all had a few laughs. I love how she will personalize your wedding so that is just for you. She is there for you from the moment you have your first meeting all the way to her announcing that you are husband and wife. If anyone is looking for someone to marry them she is the one.
