    Wonderful Commissioner

    We booked Patrick Smiley for our outdoor wedding ceremony in Kananaskis. He was very friendly, professional and flexible to our needs. He seriously did such a wonderful job, I am still amazed with how beautiful his words were. We couldn't have been happier! I would highly recommend him for a wedding!

    Hi Megan and Ben, It was a pleasure to be a part of your day. Viewpoint #2 at Kananaskis Village is a great location for a wedding!

    Patrick Smiley Made Us Smile :)

    Patrick did a wonderful job officiating our wedding ceremony. He answered any questions we had leading up to our wedding day and always responded in a timely manner. He was extremely professional and although we had never met until our wedding day he made our ceremony feel like he knew my husband and me for years.

    We are so happy we chose Patrick for our wedding day and would highly recommend him for yours!

    His name says it all

    Patrick was simply amazing from the first moment I contacted him. He was super helpful in figuring out some great outdoor locations for our elopement. Very responsive and put together a beautiful ceremony. Couldn’t have chosen a better commissioner as he was kind and always had a great smile.

    Great wedding commissioner!

    Patrick was our commissioner and he was so great! Right from my first email to him he sent me all his information and full write-up showing everything about how his wedding ceremonies go. We had the option to customize as much or as little as we wanted. He sent us a questionnaire to fill out and with that information he wrote a little love story about us that he told at our ceremony. He gave us lots of good advice and information for our ceremony… one of the best being where our family should sit. I think traditionally the bride’s family sits on the left and groom’s on the right and he suggested we reverse it. Doing it this way meant my family could see my face and my husbands family could see his face. During the ceremony I was able to look out and see my parents, siblings and grandparents without having to look behind me. Seems like something so simple but it made such a difference. He also recorded all the audio from the ceremony and sent it to us for us to keep. And he also made a little book of his entire script and our vows from the ceremony as a keepsake. Highly recommend Patrick Smiley!

    Hi Christine,
    What a detailed review! It was a pleasure to be a part of your day! I like to recommend switching the traditional Bride and Groom sides so that the couple can see their families as they are exchanging vows. I enjoyed seeing the sneak peek photos!

    Couldn't ask for more!

    We got married outside in January and Patrick was game to officiate! He was flexible in letting us customize our ceremony and write our own vows and took the time to ask us questions that would allow him to personalize our ceremony with stories. He also gave us a keepsake book of our ceremony and vows that will be so great to look back on.

    Hi Sarah,
    It was a pleasure to be a part of your day even if it was a bit chillier than the forecast. Everyone certainly had a spectacular view for the ceremony and it seemed warmer just seeing the heaters even if we couldn't quite feel them at the front.
    The live music also added to the experience.

    Great Offiant

    Patrick was so nice to work with from start to finish, he was very responsive and helpful in the planning stage. We didn't meet him until rehearsal the day before our wedding and we were instantly comfortable around him. He's such a friendly guy, but he's also straight to the point. The ceremony was beautiful! We could not have asked for more. I would recommend Patrick to everyone looking in the area!

    Patrick was great!

    Patrick was great and made everything super easy, didn't have to worry about too much on the day. My wife and I were comfortable off the bat with Patrick, and he made the ceremony fun and relaxed. Was a perfect day!

    Wonderful Ceremony

    Patrick did a great job bringing our story to life. We live far away, so most communication was done digitally. He was very responsive and easy to get in touch with. Very helpful, and guided us through the process to ensure we had the perfect ceremony for us. If you’re in the area, highly recommend!
