"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!

Exclusively for my clients! 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. 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. Read less

When searching for our wedding officiant, my husband and I were looking for someone who was professional, yet a little bit off the beaten path. We were looking for a modernized ceremony that was unique to us, yet still traditional. Kanta Bosniak provided just that. We met her at her folk art gallery in downtown Floyd and felt at home with her right away. She took time to sit with us and get to know us and our love story, and used what she learned to craft a lovely ceremony that was totally customized. Our experience with Kanta was everything we wanted it to be. She was full of helpful suggestions, and was very prompt and professional despite her laid back, carefree attitude. She was altogether a joy to work with.

My husband and I are not a typical couple, and we needed someone special and unique such as Kanta, who would take the time and have the sensitivity and intuition to understand who we are, both as individuals and as a couple. We enjoyed working with Kanta starting with the initial telephone conversation, followed by our meeting to get to know each other and make ceremony plans, and concluded with the ceremony itself. She really listened to us, asked meaningful questions, and offered great ideas on how to include our children into the ceremony and make it special for the whole family. She was thoughtful and professional throughout the process, and did a beautiful job incorporating different traditions and stories into a truly magical ceremony we will never forget. If you are looking for a unique wedding ceremony , carefully crafted to fit your needs and personalities, done with sensitivity and soulfulness, Kanta is definitely the best choice out there.

Kanta was a joy to work with and I highly recommend her to any couple looking for a meaningful, personalized wedding ceremony. She took time to get to know us as a couple and to craft a ceremony that perfectly captured our relationship and the values we wanted our wedding to reflect. We had so many guests comment on what a beautiful ceremony it was. She responded quickly to all of our questions and provided thorough information to help us throughout the process. Thank you, Kanta!

There are many reasons to be anxious leading up to wedding day, but our officiant was not one of them. My wife (at the time fiancée) and I were married in a beautiful venue in the mountains of the New River Valley, which was only slightly complicated by the fact that we both live in the middle of Missouri, meaning all wedding planning was done remotely. Although Kanta prefers to meet with her clients beforehand, she was willing to arrange a phone discussion where we thoroughly mapped our ceremony. As typical indecisive mostly secular millennials, my wife and I only had a vague idea of what we wanted out of our ceremony. A major question mark was how to balance our own views of our ceremony with that of our guests, who spanned several generations and had vastly different worldviews? Fortunately, Kanta listened to us describe our initial (very undeveloped) vision of our ceremony and offered options and suggestions throughout the process. She gave us time to look through various suggested readings, which varied in both message and degree of religiosity, to allow us to craft a ceremony representative of my wife and I that was still able to connect with our guests who’d traveled hours for our remote wedding – my teary-eyed uncle would later tell me it was the best wedding ceremony he’d ever attended.

On the Big Day, Kanta made the hour drive from Floyd to Giles. She arrived early, so we could meet in person and go over the details of the procession and other last-minute minutia. She delivered a wonderful ceremony and the rest is history. I thank her for her professionalism and willingness to work with us throughout the process. We also got a great piece of folk art to boot! Thanks Kanta!

Kanta was an absolute dream to work with. I knew I wanted her to officiate our big day from the moment I first spoke to her. Her enthusiasm for what she does, her calming nature, and her propensity to go the extra mile for us were such important factors, we called her back the next day to secure our date! Kanta was so easy to get in contact with and was so willing to work with us, being that we lived 5 hours away from where our wedding was taking place. She was so flexible and so generous to work with us on the timing of face-to-face meetings. Kanta made me feel at such ease leading up to and on the day of the wedding. No question went unanswered, she was onsite with plenty of time to come by and check to see how I was doing, and she assured me that everything was going to go so well. My (now) husband and I knew we wanted a special ceremony-after all, it was the most important aspect of the day-and Kanta delivered that and more. She crafted the most beautiful ceremony that left me with the happiest tears, the happiest heart, and the best memories. Kanta went above and beyond, committing her time and energy, to make sure our day went as perfectly as possible. I absolutely recommend her!!!

My wife and I are extremely grateful for the work Kanta put into making our ceremony truly ours. She took the time to get to know us over several months before the wedding and it was evident that she was invested in making our wedding special to us and our guests. She is an excellent storyteller and has a wonderful ability to connect to a couple and audience.
