    Great Officiant

    Patrick did a great job with our Canmore wedding, helped with everything we needed to know and provided some different options for the ceremony. Thanks Patrick, K&W

    Congratulations once again on your marriage and thank you for choosing me to officiate your ceremony. From the violin duo to the piper for the recessional, nothing sounds better than live music at a wedding and your musicians did a great job. Best wishes to you both!

    Professional and very personable!

    Patrick was so helpful throughout the wh0le process, setting expectations and making sure we knew what was going to happen on the day of our wedding. We had a beautiful, meaningful ceremony and we really appreciate having a copy of the ceremony reading so that we can always remember it. Thanks Patrick!

    Thank you for your review Alice. Stewart Creek is such a beautiful location for a wedding and I am sure your guests enjoyed all of the natural light streaming in the windows at the front of the room. The ceremony seems to go by so quickly and I hope you enjoy reading your ceremony booklet for many years to come! ~ Patrick

    Helped give us our perfect day

    Patrick Smiley was so helpful and organized. He helped guide us through the ceremony and kept us informed so there were no (unpleasant) surprises. His style was professional and warm during the ceremony. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an officiant.

    Thank you so much for all your work and effort!

    Jamie and Tom

    Jamie and Tom, It was a pleasure to be a part of your day and I wish you many years of happiness! Buffalo Mountain Lodge is a great venue and I am sure your guests enjoyed the comfort of an indoor ceremony.

    Professional, engaging and helpful

    Patrick was a fantastic officiant. Our guests commented how much they liked the ceremony and his delivery. He worked well with us remotely prior to the event, but nothing was missing and he was a pleasure to work with. Very professional throughout, and made everything easier for us. I would recommend Patrick to anyone getting married in Canmore or Banff.

    Perfect Experience

    We could not have asked for a better wedding officiant! We had attended two other weddings earlier in the year and had some mixed feelings about their chosen officiants. Patrick was incredibly organized right from our first meeting, informed us on our next steps, even reminding us as we went along. The rehearsal was very efficient allowed us to run through some of our ideas. The ceremony was perfectly executed and well spoken.

    Congratulations on your marriage and thank you for your review Brittany. It was a pleasure to be a part of your day. A rehearsal can help a large wedding party move through the ceremony space confidently and your wedding party nailed it on the first walk through. The bridesmaids lanterns were great and having the groomsmen walk the bridesmaids to their positions looked very classy.

    The wait is over

    Thank you Patrick. You were fantastic. Advice was right on. Now we know why you were recommended. All that was left out were bears grazing in the adjacent meadow Deep gratitude from Candi and Jeff.

    Jeff, It was a pleasure to be part of your special day at Lake Louise. It was wonderful to hear how you fell in love with the area so may years ago and chose to come back for your marriage ceremony to Candi. Come back again in 5 years to renew your vows!

    Quarry Lake July Wedding

    Patrick Smiley made our wedding ceremony very special and I could not thank him enough! My husband and I got married in Canmore as a destination wedding (we are from New York). Patrick always had excellent communication and has a lovely script for the ceremony. He was extremely accommodating as it was supposed to rain during our ceremony and he didn't blink an eye about still having it outside (it didn't rain thankfully!). He also incorporated the unity ceremony we wanted and made everything so perfect - I could not have asked for more from an officiant!

    Highly Recommend!

    Patrick was great to work with! Very professional and easy going. We opted for a rehearsal the evening before- which was great. He was so organized and explained things very well. The whole wedding party commented on how helpful the found it. He was also very accommodating with having our dog a part of our ceremony which meant a lot to us. Highly recommend Patrick!

    Amazing and would Recommend

    Patrick was amazing to work with. He listened to what we wanted for our ceremony and made it happen. We wanted short and sweet. We got short and sweet.

    He sent us so many resources and useful tips on how to run our own rehearsal as well as tips on how to write our own vows.

    It was perfect. Highly recommend

    Nothing but smiles with Patrick Smiley

    Patrick Smiley was our marriage commissioner last year.

    My husband and I were both nervous for our wedding day. But Patrick just make sure we were comfortable. He made sure that all the details of our ceremony was taken care of prior to the big day. During the big day he made our guests laugh, cry, and most of all made us ( the bride and groom) feel comfortable in front of the ones we loved.

    Would recommend Patrick to anyone who needs a commissioner in the Canmore and surrounding area and looking for an easy going guy who makes everyone laugh.

    Hi Tracy,
    Thank you for your review and congratulations on your first anniversary. It can be a bit nerve wracking to be standing in front of family and friends during such an intimate moment in your lives and I am happy that you felt comfortable and that your guests experienced a range of emotions during the ceremony. Best wishes for many more anniversaries and fond memories.
