  • 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 was amazing from start to finish helping us plan our ceremony and vows. His warm and caring presence put us at ease and his sense of humor made us sure that he was the one for us. Our ceremony was honestly perfect, he truly made our big day the "Best Day Ever!" We will forever be grateful to John for all of his help and guidance. I promise if you pick him you will have the Best Day Ever too!

  • 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 one of our favorite parts of our wedding and truly made our big day the best day ever. Thanks to him, our ceremony was a perfect combination of fun and serious. He was eager to hear our story and tailored to our vision for the ceremony. We can't thank him enough for the absolute amazing day. Thank you, John!

  • John told us a lot about himself, his hobbies, and passions which was a nice icebreaker to get to know him and feel comfortable around him. He was so intrigued when my fiance and I told him our love story and that really made us happy to share that part of us with him. John is easy to talk to and easy to reach! We are very excited to have him marry us.

  • From the first email, phone call, and meeting it was very genuine that John loves officiating weddings and he did his absolute best to help make our day even that much more special. John was awesome to work with and was very quick to respond to any emails or texts for questions that we had. The ceremony was perfect for us; he infused our story, humor, and appreciation for all of our guests. So many of our guests complimented how great the ceremony turned out, and John took time to speak with many of our friends and family afterwards. Would highly recommend Mr. Candler for anyone!

  • On a Saturday, me and my fiance (I mean WIFE) decided to tie the knot the following wednesday. We reached out to John and he made sure that that would happen. He was extremely easy to work with and seemed to truly be happy to help us out. 'Best Day Ever Officiant" should be John's middle name!

  • When people are asked about their wedding day, most will say "It was the best day of my life." But in reality, if you dig deeper into that question, they will begin to tell you all of the little things that went wrong on this day. Well, was it really the best day ever then? Our wedding was. We can honestly say that hiring our friend John to perform our ceremony was crucial in ensuring we had a magical ceremony. For starters, John was extremely personable and took the time to connect with us on several occasions before the ceremony. Through three conversations he was able to perfectly capture our unique story and retell it to all of our guests. He was charismatic, funny, and serious when need be. It was such a blessing meeting John and having him be part of our special day, The Best Day Ever.

  • My wife Julie and I found John, the Best Day Ever Officiant, only a few weeks before our wedding date. John responded immediately to my request on wedding wire and followed up with a phone call. Throughout the whole process up to the ceremony he was warm, thoughtful, and collaborative. He showed so much grace and collaboration by helping Julie and I craft the ceremony that we wanted, and let Julie’s brother share the stage with him for part of the ceremony. He perfectly blended elements of religious faith, humor, sentimentality, and the sacredness of marriage into the ceremony; our guests raves about him afterwards. We can not recommend him enough!

  • John created a great relationship with my wife and I before our wedding. He was flexible with our schedule and always available if/when needed. He created something special and unique for us and we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. “Best Day Ever” Officiant truly matched the experience we had working with him.

  • John really made our day the Best Day Ever! His energy and enthusiasm were contagious and he added such an amazing element to the big day. Our original officiant had a death in his family...so I found John approx 6 days before the Big day... Thank God! For having only one Skype session before the actual ceremony, John nailed it! I loved that he was able to weave our story into the ceremony, which made it all that more personal than just saying the traditional vows. If we ever decide to do a vow renewal...John will be the first person we call.

  • John was a wonderful addition to our wedding team! Although we met online, John felt like the right fit and made that apparent from beginning to end. He got to know our story and shared details with our family as if he had known us throughout our whole journey. He was professional, on-time and really took the lead throughout the day. Would highly recommend for couples who are looking for a personable officiant who is talented at tailoring his skills to meet your specific needs.
