Marriage is an adventure, and we look forward to the opportunity to help with the beginning of your adventure together. Best Day Officiants is a growing team of ordained wedding specialists serving Glacier National Park, the Flathead Valley, and beyond. Our start began with a wedding and portrait photographer's desire to help couples fulfill their dreams of eloping in epic locations and has grown from there. Founder, Shawna Benson, got her start officiating weddings as part of an all-inclusive elopement team with her dear friend Carrie Ann. After marrying 14 couples in her first season she loved it so much that she decided to make officiating part of her official repertoire. In our second season, we were blessed to marry 37 amazing couples and add a new team member, Raul Rodriguez, to the Best Day team. We specialize in helping our couples create a unique, custom ceremony to begin their married lives together; we are so excited to hear your love story and have the opportunity to serve you.

"I could not have been happier with Best Day Officiants. My concern with finding an officiant was finding the right 'voice' for our ceremony and having that person make it special. Because my husband and I eloped, it was really the only traditional part of our wedding. Shawna took time and effort in getting to know us to make our intimate ceremony meaningful and full of love, while meeting our requirements. She helped us customize our wording for the ceremony and gave us pointers for writing our own vows. We feel very blessed to have Shawna share our special day, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for their own wedding!" – Julie and Mike
