Rev. Dave made our wedding a truly memorable experience. We have received so many wonderful compliments about him. We have a large family and Rev. Dave helped us to incorporate everyone in the ceremony. He spent a lot of time getting to know us and we felt very confident in our decision to go with him. He made sure that everyone was where they were supposed to be - when they were supposed to be there, smiling and with good posture and hand placement for pictures. He is a witty and funny guy which made everyone's day. Rev. Dave even took the time to make sure I (the bride) wasn't doing anything but getting married. He directed people to do things that fell through the cracks so I could focus on my day. Rev. Dave is experienced, professional and customizes your big day to fit your personality and tastes.

Reverend Dave was amazing. I'm so glad we selected him to be our officiant. He brought the perfect amount of lightheartedness and humor into the ceremony, while focusing on our story and our values. He was organized, professional, and helped keep everything running smoothly. His instruction was perfect, so everyone was at ease and comfortable the day of. We had a wonderful wedding - and it was enhanced by Reverend Dave. The photos of our audience really show how much fun the whole ceremony was - a lot of laughter and happy tears!
The meetings leading up to the wedding were easily organized around our schedules and location, and they were fun! We had a great time getting to know Reverend Dave. I would recommend him highly.
