  • We completed premarital counseling with Don, who also conducted our ceremony on June 20, 2020. Don helped us see new perspectives and solidify a foundation to start our marriage. Our ceremony was beautiful! Don was so thoughtful in writing everything to be personal for us. So many guests came to us to say how unique, individualized, and meaningful our ceremony was! We really couldn't have asked for more from Don. We highly recommend him!
