Welcome to the blog of Patrick Smiley Weddings.
How it all started. My career in the wedding industry started in November of 1980. For years before that, I had a passion for all kinds of music, a passion I shared with my Father. I added to my music collection at every opportunity and built up a substantial library. My love of music was for the most part a personal activity until a friend approached me to come and play some tunes at a party he was hosting. At the end of the party, that changed forever!
Patrick Smiley Weddings is a division of Class Act DJ Service Inc., a full time DJ entertainment company that I have owned and operated for over 20 years in the Banff / Canmore area. At one time, we have had as many as 7 DJ’s out on the same evening, but for the last 5 years, it has been myself, Rob Lavery and Rob Murray. Our goal is to provide our clients with personalized service.
Why Patrick Smiley Weddings and why now? In the last 10 years, I have attended numerous conventions and workshops in Las Vegas, Chicago, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Winnipeg, Portland and Louisville to hone my skills as a wedding entertainer and Master of Ceremonies and I continue to learn advanced skills from industry leaders. Patrick Smiley Weddings focuses on creating personalized wedding entertainment that is fun, classy and tailored specifically to your vision. It is your celebration…made great!!
