  • My husband and I talked to quite a few reverends before finding Rev. Dan. He is so personable and really wants to get to know you and your story, this was very important to us. He was early to both the rehearsal and ceremony and was very flexible with our constantly changing wedding plans due to COVID. We really appreciated him being part of our special day and would recommend him to any future bride and groom that's looking for a great reverend!
