"I'm so grateful that we found Kanta. She is immeasurably dedicated to her role in a wedding and is accessible from the moment you book her. Kanta interviewed us, then used that information to write a personalized ceremony. We received many compliments about her warm and thoughtful remarks, She answered any and all questions that we had, and she helped calm my nerves before the ceremony. She was well worth her modest fee; she made our wedding day! We highly recommend her."
-Laura

"Kanta is AMAZING! I have been working with Kanta for over 2 years now and she is nothing short of amazing! Her rates are always affordable, she's professional and always on time for rehearsals and/or wedding day festivities. My favorite part is how she takes such a unique approach to the services she provides, she doesn't just provide a service she provides the EXPERIENCE which is exactly what you want for your wedding! I HIGHLY Recommend Kanta as a wedding officiant!"
-Lyndsi Humphries, Mountain lake Lodge

Personalized, Meaningful Ceremonies
If you and your beloved would describe yourselves as “spiritual, not religious,” and you desire a ceremony that reflects who you are as individuals and as a couple, I would like to help you make that a reality. Whether it’s just the two of you or you’re inviting five hundred of your closest friends, I’ll be happy to tailor the service to meet your needs. I meet with every couple in person or by phone for an interview that helps me get to know you and your love story, so I can write a ceremony script that will be just right for you!

NEW! Your choice of 1 of 6 Folk Art Marriage Certificates.
Virginia's certificate is very plain. I thought, "I could do better!" So, I did. These are art prints of orginial paintings on canvas. Commitment Ceremony Certificates and Baby Blessing certificates are also available for ceremonies I officiate. I'm a folk artist and the certificates are in my colorful, folk art primitive style. I'll sign and give you the Virginia one, of course. And if you like my versions, choose one! My gift to you.

In addition to custom wedding ceremonies, I perform custom ceremony services for couples, families, businesses and organizations, such as Vow Renewals, Christenings, Baptisms, spiritual/not religious Baby Blessings, House Blessings, Building Dedications, Memorials/Celebrations of Life, and more.

My first interaction with Kanta was a long phone conversation, in which she told me about her style of officiating ceremonies and I was sold!!! My husband then spoke to her one evening and adored her as well! Upon meeting Kanta, we knew we had made the right decision. Over the course of a year, we got to know Kanta and she was able to beautifully and honestly express our love story in our ceremony. Both Dave and I were brought to tears by her deep and honest reflection of our tale and our personalities. If you are looking for an officiant who will carefully express your love in a meaningful way, Kanta is the one for you!

She took the time to meet with us as a couple, learn our love story, listen to our values and priorities, and form them into a beautiful ceremony.

Kanta is an absolute pleasure to work with. She takes great pride in what she does and is very genuine and down to Earth. She met with us very quickly and spent a good deal of time getting to know us so that she could write and prepare a service very specific to my wife and I. She took the time to make several checkups with us along the way to our wedding to make sure everything was to our liking and fulfill all of our expectations and then some. I don't believe we could have found a better person to handle such an important day for us. Kanta is an absolute pleasure to work with and get to know. You won't go wrong working with her.

My husband and I are thrilled that we chose Rev. Bosniak to officiate our wedding. Four months before our wedding we were searching for a Reverend as ours had backed out. As a Type A person I was panicked and quickly began searching online. I reached out to Rev. Bosniak because of her amazing reviews on Wedding Wire which were spot on. After a brief phone call I knew she was the type of minister we were looking for. We thoroughly enjoyed our meeting with her and we felt as though she really got to know us. She included lots of details to our ceremony and gave us LOTS of options. We are so glad that we chose Rev. Bosniak and we cannot thank her enough for a truly magical and flawless ceremony!

Kanta is one of the most caring, accommodating and good-hearted people I know in VA. She really invests in her service as an officiant. She went out of her way to travel to meet with us... she got to know us and really understood who we were as individuals and a couple. She helped shape our ceremony to fit our personality with class and grace. She wrote and spoke beautifully and showed our guests what our love & commitment meant to us as a couple. She was very helpful throughout the process of preparing for the wedding and very clear about what we needed to do for the marriage license and other ceremony details. Honestly she was the easiest person we worked with on the wedding by far. And even during the ceremony when it began to rain (outdoor wedding), i looked away from my husband and at Kanta, only to see her shine and smile... she loved the rain as much as we did... and she even stayed after in the rain for pictures... she was right there with us, heart and soul. She didn't just "officiate" our marriage, she became the link between our bond to one another and the higher power that blessed us through the sky.
If you are looking for someone that will answer your questions, devote their time to you and your partner, and help create a ceremony you want ... you want Kanta! She loves what she does, and you want that. Thank you Kanta!

Kanta is phenomenal!!! So glad we found her... From our first phone conversation to meeting in person she was easy to reach, interested in our love story and just so supportive and fun. We met and she simply asked us questions which she used the answers to create our own personalized ceremony.. She made it so beautiful!!! She is the sweetest person I have ever met!! I hope she is still doing this if we ever decide to renew our vows years down the road. She is professional, fun and made our wedding ceremony everything I dreamed of. I would definitely.. 100% ..recommend her to anyone who wants a completely personal, beautiful and amazing ceremony!! I can't say enough about this wonderful woman!! Seriously amazing!! Thank you Kanta.. You made my dream ceremony a reality!!!

Kanta officiated our wedding on June 18, 2016, and I and my guests cannot stop raving about her!

Kanta met with us once to get all of our details, how we envisioned the ceremony going, how much religion we wanted in it (we opted for none at all, but she has a full spectrum!), our love story, etc. Every detail was covered from how I, the bride, was given away, to how people entered and exited, to where and how we'd stand up at the front. Over the course of several months we finalized what readings we wanted--we chose our own, but Kanta has great suggestions--and our order of ceremony. Phone calls and emails were always promptly returned and with great enthusiasm.

Her preparation helped make the rehearsal go very smoothly. She called a few days before the wedding to finalize our love story and my husband and I cried while we listened. It really centered us and reminded us why we are meant for each other.

The ceremony went off with one hitch, ours! We only wish that Kanta could have stayed to party with us because I know my guests would have loved to get to know her more!

She is also an amazing poet and artist and also hand crafted our breathtaking ring bearer pillow for us in our wedding colors. Kanta is one of a kind!

A wedding is like a beautiful production of two people in love finally uniting in front whoever they believe is important, no one understood this better than Kanta. She understood what was in our hearts and we were in control of the general vibe of the ceremony, although i believe Kanta would of known exactly what to say after talking to us anyway. She clicked with us perfectly and it seemed as if she had known us for years, had been there when we met. It was like having a friend marry you. She is so warm and welcoming i couldn't think of anyone better to have married us .

Kanta did a lovely job officiating our wedding. She took notes at our meeting and made sure that she talked about our qualities we found important in a family.
