We planned an out of state wedding and found Dan online. We are so happy we chose him! He did a great job of getting to know us by email and skype, wrote a beautiful personalized ceremony for us, and was very flexible in parts of it we wanted to change. Many of our guests told us what a great job Dan did and how perfect he was for our ceremony, serious when needed to be but also brought a great lighthearted personality to it. Thank you Dan!
Dan was perfect! He made it easy for us to pick exactly what we wanted to say, even when we didn't know how to say it ourselves. The ceremony was wonderful. I would definitely recommend his services.
Dan of Embracing Ceremony was extremely helpful and provided a service for us that was far beyond anything we could have hoped for. From the first contact I had with Dan I knew that he was the officiant for us and his home gardens provided a beautiful backdrop for our wedding. I can't say enough wonderful things about our experience. Thank you so much!
I could not have been more pleased with the ceremony...absolutely perfect!
Dan was easy to work with and covered details we hadn't thought of. He is very personable and strived to make our ceremony unique and compliment both of us well. We would recommend him to anyone and SpiriTaos is the perfect place to say I Do!;)
Dan took the time to get to know us which gave our ceremony a personal touch, which we received compliments on. He was very easy to work with and very responsive. Even to last minute changes! He was open to implementing our creativity as well as providing his own to create a beautiful ceremony. He kept the ceremony light but meaningful, as we preferred. We would recommend him to anyone!
Dan was wonderful-very kind and made us feel very comfortable.
Embracing Ceremony aka Dan Jones was simple great. Not only did he assist us with the ceremony, but he helped prepare our vows and made excellent suggestions as to the meaning of our wedding. Such care was taken and his sensitive to our needs was always first with Dan. We are so pleased. He is the best!

It feels a bit odd to be referring to Dan as our "vendor" because, through this process, my new spouse and I feel like Dan is much more like a new and treasured friend. We are two women, so of course attitude toward same-sex marriage was a critical and core factor for us, and we could tell right away that Dan was completely and genuinely supportive of our relationship and this celebration. He is an excellent listener and did a great job throughout the whole process of listening for what was important to both of us, and asking questions to clarify or draw out more information when he needed it. He was always responsive and timely - offering us a thorough yet flexible outline of the ceremony which we could then adapt and revise as much or as little as we wished. We wanted to blend together two very different spiritual traditions, to which Dan was very open and respectful. My sense is that he would be very comfortable working with couples to create a wide range of ceremony - from the most traditional to the most non-traditional. Dan's personality is a magical blend of calm serenity, dependable roundedness, a relaxing sense of humor, and the warmest of hearts. We are so grateful to have had him officiate for us, and to now have him as our friend.
I would have probably chosen a different photographer, but Dan was wonderful! The ceremony was very "us" and he was always available for our questions beforehand. He also followed up a few times before the ceremony to make sure we didn't have any additional questions and made sure to give us directions in addition to an address.
Working with Dan Jones at Embracing Ceremonies was wonderful. We met with him for the first time and right then we knew we wanted him to officiate our wedding. We met again and answered questions so that he could personalize our ceremony. Everything was just how we imagined and it had a lot to do with how smoothly Dan made everything flow. Our ceremony was just beautiful and I received many compliments on how touching and heart warming it was. The ceremony was truly memorable because it fit us perfectly! Thanks Dan! Cyn and Trev
My husband and I chose a destination wedding in Taos and we couldn't have been more pleased with placing our trust and ceremony in Dan's hands. He created a beautiful, custom set of vows that he wrote after a initial phone conversation about a month prior. We didn't hear or see the vows until our ceremony at El Monte Sagrado. Our family that was present even commented on how lovely our vows were. Thanks Dan!
Dan was such a joy to work with! He was so quick to respond to my emails. I had some specific requests regarding the ceremony and he was able to partner those requests with his program beautifully. He had a wonderful pace during the ceremony and cared about each detail.
Dan was amazing! We enjoyed a beautiful ceremony with Taos Mtn as our backdrop in his picture perfect gardens complete w a running stream, variety of beautiful flowers and plants throughout, and the peaceful mountains surrounding us as we took our vows. Our guests all commented our wedding was the most moving ceremony they had ever attended. Dan not only orchestrated the perfect ceremony that fit our personalities and tastes, but he made it seem effortless. We had no stress whatsoever thanks to Dan's capable handling of everything from questions about license to photographer and venues for perfect romantic dinner following the ceremony. We would highly recommend Dan Jones to any couple looking for a romantic, personalized ceremony! Thank you again Dan!
Dan was a pleasure to work with for our wedding in Taos. The readings & vows he incorporated into our ceremony were very personalized & unique, as well as beautifully meaningful. It meant a lot to us that it wasn't a "cookie cutter" ceremony. I would recommend Dan without reservation!
