    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!

    Awesome Guy

    Patrick was our wedding commissioner at Two Jack Lake in Canmore. We are from Florida and had never been out to Canada. He was very helpful while we tried to decide on a location. He was very friendly and responsive. We ended up changing the location a few days before the wedding and he had no issues. He put together a beautiful ceremony. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better. He was funny at times but also very heartfelt and sincere. We are so thankful that we chose Patrick!

    Thank you for your review Marty.
    It was a pleasure to be a part of your wedding day. There are so many beautiful spots for a wedding ceremony and we were lucky to have Two Jack Lake pretty much to ourselves.
    Congratulation once again to you and Piper and all the best in the years to come!

    Highly recommended!

    Patrick did a fantastic job officiating our wedding in Canmore, Alberta. He was easy to communicate with, worked with us to plan a personalized program and delivered a clear, meaningful ceremony. Our guests have given us many compliments on Patrick's professionalism and the way he told our love story (he's a great storyteller too!). Thank-you Patrick, you made our wedding run very smoothly, and were also warm and caring to help calm our nerves!

    Amazing Commissioner

    Patrick did an amazing job on our wedding.
    He performed the perfect personalized ceremony for our special day.
    He was professional, friendly, accommodating and responded in a timely manner.
    He answered all our questions & embraced some of our own additions.
    We were able to include our parents in the ceremony which they really appreciated.
    We couldn't have picked a better officiant ! We are so happy we decided to have Patrick perform our marriage.

    Congratulations again and it was an honour to be part of your special day. From the Candle Lighting In Memory to your choice of readings and the hand-fasting ceremony, I am sure that your wedding day will be something you and your guests will fondly remember for years to come.

    Very easy experience

    Patrick was very helpful as our Officiant and made it so easy on us. All of my family has been married in the Church before so this was my first experience with an Officiant rather than a Priest. He was so accommodating and lovely to talk to. He offered for us to include our family and friends so that we could have religious readings if we wanted and was very open to modifying the ceremony to what suited us. We did not get to have Patrick with us for our rehearsal but he provided us with a very handy Rehearsal Guide. You would never have known he wasn’t at the rehearsal as the wedding day went so so smoothly. Thank you Patrick!

    Thank you for your review Adele. It was a pleasure to be a part of your special day.
    For those that wish to personalize their marriage ceremony, I believe that each ceremony should reflect the couple and their families and have personal touches that make it uniquely theirs. Yours were subtle and meaningful and I hope gave a warm feeling to all of your guests.

    Great personalized experience

    We hired Patrick as our commissioner for our wedding. He was very friendly and did an amazing job! I felt completely at ease working with him and was able to help customize our ceremony. He made us up a personalized booklet of our ceremony complete with our vows. I am very happy that we chose him as our commissioner and would definitely recommend him.
