He was a delight to have officiated our marriage!
Dan was a delight! He was available on my husband's birthday! He was very positive and jovial! And I would definitely recommend him to officiate your wedding! He even played our select song from his cellphone for us! Great experience all around!Sent on 08/18/2019

Dan and Beth Henkel are wonderful
Dan and Beth Henkel officiated me and my wife's wedding on June 14, 2019 and they were both amazing. Our ceremony was unconventional and they made it perfect. They truly care about the couples they are marrying and put their whole selves into the ceremony. It was amazing and perfect and I would recommend Dan and Beth to anyone who wants a meaningful and unique ceremony.Sent on 06/26/2019
Dan Henkel, officiant's reply:How sweet! Thank you, Michelle. You and Jocelyn put a lot of thought into your one-of-a-kind wedding, and it showed. We loved having your guests in a circle, sharing the heart-felt readings you chose, and ending in the song you taught us!

Relaxed, Confident, Accepting and Perfect
Dan was wonderful as our officiant! It was important to my husband and I that we find someone who married everyone! It was important to us to find someone who made sure we were comfortable and let us be a part of the ceremony writing process. We ended writing most of our ceremony with Dan's input and frequently asking for his advice! He insisted on meeting us for a dinner with he and his wife before we started so he had a better since of us and what we wanted included so he was very insightful. He also offered plenty of previous ceremonies for us to have a good starting place as well different ideas. He was warm and endearing throughout the process and had perfectly relaxed and comfortable delivery during our ceremony. I can't say enough good things about Dan and the entire year we spent planning with him and our beautiful ceremony because of him! We were so, so very blessed and grateful to find him!Sent on 12/31/2018
Dan Henkel, officiant's reply:Thanks, Emily! We all put in a lot of preparation for your ceremony, and I think it showed. Your ceremony felt personal, special and warmly inclusive--just like your family and guests! I appreciate being entrusted with your amazing wedding ceremony.
