Nothing but smiles with Patrick Smiley
Patrick Smiley was our marriage commissioner last year.Sent on 23/12/2018
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.

Finding a commissioner for prime wedding season was daunting! Patrick was wonderful to work with: responding promptly to all e-mail questions, making time to FaceTime with us as we live out of town and doing a lot of prep work for a verbal 'run through' of the ceremony which took a lot of pressure off of the big day. As we did not have a rehearsal and therefore hadn't actually met Patrick in person before the wedding, we had our fingers crossed that everything would run smoothly - and it did! Patrick had put a lot of prep time to make sure we knew what would happen, he was there early to ensure the sound system worked well and he followed up with providing all the paperwork we needed to apply for our marriage certificate. Our wedding felt personalized and the feeling that Patrick had known us came through in his work and presentation. I would recommend him for a wedding in the Banff/Canmore area and if you live out of town, feel confident that he will deliver a beautiful ceremony on your day!Sent on 10/11/2017
Patrick Smiley - Marriage Commissioner's reply:Congratulations to both of you once again and thank you for taking the time to write a review and thank you for the photos of the ceremony.

Yes!!! Patrick was easy going and understand what we both wanted out of a ceremony. We only had about 19 guest. I wanted it intimate. I was able to add on a few things and Patrick chose the words to present at the ceremony. I wouldn't have it any other way. It was a sweet and full of love. And Thank you so much for making our daughter be part of the wedding it was one of the highlight of our ceremony and the reason why we had the wedding. The cost was also acceptable. Thank you so much.Sent on 16/09/2017

Patrick Smiley was out ppt commissioner at Banff Tunnel meadow. Patrick took into account of Mike and my personalities and sense of adventure. He was professional, responsive yet fun. He helped us plan our ceremony from Chicago and it was perfect. We would recommend Patrick to anyone planning a wedding in the Alberta areaSent on 31/08/2017

Patrick was very attentive and responsive with all of our questions, especially since we are from the States and unfamiliar with the local legal procedures. I will definitely recommend him to anyone that will be getting married in Alberta.Sent on 29/07/2017

From the start, Patrick Smiley was so helpful and great at communicating with us throughout our planning process. He had great suggestions for location ideas, and was very accommodating with having our dogs along with us.
The ceremony he performed made us both so happy! It was short and sweet, but so beautifully written -- he even said a favourite quote of ours during our ceremony that we didn't even ask him to include! Patrick is very friendly, very professional, and awesome at what he does! We're so grateful he was apart of our wedding day.Sent on 10/07/2017
Patrick Smiley - Marriage Commissioner's reply:Lauren and Jeff, Thank you for choosing me to officiate your ceremony and for wonderful review!

Patrick was an excellent Dj who came highly recommended by the venue coordinator were I was getting married. Patrick played every song (not traditional wedding music) that I requested and I had a lot of people come up to me throughout the night saying how great the music was thanks to Patrick.Sent on 16/12/2017
Thank you again Patrick for lighting up our night and making it that much more special for us on our wedding day. I would recommend you to anyone who enjoys music as mush as we do.

Patrick was an absolute pleasure to have as our marriage commissioner. We had a small ceremony (6 people total with lots more joining by skype). Although we were in a beautiful venue (the Banff Springs Hotel) and we were dressed in our fancy wedding attire, we wanted the ceremony to be somewhat fun, light-hearted and not too up-tight. We let Patrick know the type of feel we were looking for an he delivered - spot on! He made us laugh and smile and neither of us were nervous at any point in the ceremony. He is a very friendly and warm person and I would absolutely recommend him as a marriage commissioner.
Thank you, Patrick, for being a part of our special day!Sent on 09/01/2017
Patrick Smiley - Marriage Commissioner's reply:Hope and Alex, it was so cool to have family from Quebec and Ontario joining us on Skype during the ceremony and even the champagne toast at the end! Thank you for having me as your officiant and best wishes!

We had a great experience with Patrick. He was great to deal with and made sure you had everything you needed. He even followed up after the wedding to clarify understanding with our marriage certificate and name change. Thank you so much!!Sent on 09/01/2017
