  • Coolest officiant there is! Dave was very quick to respond and after chatting on the phone we picked a day to meet in person. He was nice enough to meet us in our town. He asked a couple of questions to get to know us better and to prepare for our ceremony. It was already evident that Dave truly cares about his clients but when covid hit we were blown away. Our October wedding had to be rescheduled (to March) but we still wanted to do a little ceremony with a small group of friends. As soon as we asked Dave if he would marry us in October and then again in March, he was more than willing to do so! Dave once again drove out of his way to meet us and made our day super special with a personalized ceremony. Now we're even more excited for our second ceremony in March! Dave is cool, calm, and collected. You won't regret choosing him to help celebrate your day.
