  • The Best Day Ever Officiant was amazing!! John made our day so special. The ceremony was so personal and intimate. He took the time to get to know us before our wedding day and really listened to all we had to say and used that info to make our ceremony incredibly personal. I'm a wedding photographer, and I've been to a LOT of weddings in the past decade, but John is among the very best officiants. We eloped, and he was the perfect choice to make our day awesome. He even arrived early to scope the area out and found the best spot for us. He cares not just for the wedding day, but genuinely invests in his clients. We clicked with him the first time we met over the phone, and really feel like he fit right into our day perfectly. We didn't just get an officiant. We got a friend. If you haven't booked him yet, do it now! You won't regret it.

  • John is the best. Even though our venue was hard to find, I had no concerns about John. He arrived promptly, and is a great talker with anyone in your party. Hiring John is easily one of the best decisions to take one thing confidently off your plate

  • Thank you so much for making our ceremony so special! Even though we laughed a lot you made it clear how much of a BFD('Big Freaking Deal') this was. If anyone is looking for an officiant still then stop your search and give him a call. Through the entire process John's communication was clear and his responses were prompt. He took the time to get to know us before hand to create an experienced truly tailored to us. From the first phone call it was clear he was the best person to have as our officiant.

  • John is absolutely amazing! I'll be honest, we were a little skeptical having someone officiant our wedding that we didn't have a close relationship with but, by the end of our experience/ceremony we felt like we had known him for years! He was super professional, took the time to learn who we were as individuals and as a couple, was very responsive and was very organized and definetly knows what he is doing! He truly made our day the Best Day Ever and I highly recommend him to anyone!

  • When I was planning my wedding, just like many people, I wanted mine to be perfect (or at least as close to perfect as possible). I spent so much time researching, calling, price negotiating, and so on. The entire process was very stressful, confusing, and expensive. That is, except my experience with John Candler. When I was looking for an officiant, I looked online and read many reviews. I looked at their faces, and tried my best to imagine their personalities. I know this sounds bad, but I simply didn’t have the time, energy, or desire to meet multiple pastors, priests, nuns or whoever to find the perfect officiant. When I saw the reviews for John, the people described a person that was warm, professional, and simply great at what he does. So I sent him a message, hoping that he was available for our special day. He quickly replied, within minutes, and let us know he was available. He directed us to his website for more information, photos, reviews, and rates. His website was prof... Read more

  • John truly made our wedding the best day ever! It was much more fun and beautiful than what we thought it will be. John is very easy and flexible to work with. He took efforts to understand our story and made the ceremony very personal. All our guests from India and other countries who joined the wedding virtually enjoyed the ceremony and found John' statements to be genuine. Even though we organized the wedding under CoVid restrictions, John helped us celebrate the wedding in a memorable way. Definitely recommend John to anyone looking for an officiant.

  • I can't say enough good things about John!! From the moment he got there until he left we absolutely enjoy not only the service he provided but his company as well! Everyone in attendance asked at one point or another, how long I had known John, did we work together or how we seemed to be pretty close friends! I had only met John when he showed up for the wedding! Thanks, John, and I'm sure we will meet again!!

  • John was a blessing to our elopement! I don’t even know where to start because there are so many positive things to say. My fiancé and I selected John about 3 weeks before our wedding. It was very last minute but he made time to have a FaceTime meeting with us as we are in Texas and he was in Washington. He got to know us and our love story. On the day of our wedding at Gold Creek Pond it was raining, snowy, and cold but he stuck through it with us and made our ceremony beautiful and memorable. I’m not the best with words but from the bottom of my heart I truly appreciate John Candlers work. My husband and I highly recommend him to any couple looking for a fun, energetic, funny, and passionate officiant. We had the best day ever and made a new lifelong friend.

  • John is the most amazing person! My fiance and I were a little nervous about our ceremony part of our wedding, but John helped us feel so calm and authentic. He really has a great understanding of people and how to highlight them. He is so personable and easy-going!! I couldn't have asked for anyone better to be our officiant! He was a complete stranger to us when we first talked but by the wedding, he felt like family. Thank you so much John for making our night so special!!

  • My husband and I were so impressed with John. We could not have asked for a better officiant or ceremony. John was relaxed and professional and made the day feel so special. After only one meeting he felt like an old friend and delivered the perfect ceremony that highlighted our relationship perfectly. Cannot say enough good things!

  • John was great to work with! He was so flexible given COVID and the constant changes in plans and locations. John was very personable and so easy to get along with. He felt like a friend at our intimate elopement rather than someone we nearly just met. He captured our story and personalities so well. Highly recommend John for your future wedding ceremonies!
