    Amazing experience

    As a lesbian couple we were so relieved to find such a caring and helpful individual to perform our wedding. He was responsive, flexible to our schedules and very understanding for all the aspects that we wanted to include in our wedding. We were so happy we chose him and highly recommend him, you won't regret it!

    Wow, Jessica--thanks! Getting to know you and April and your friends and family was a gas. I left your wedding thinking, "If I never officiate another wedding, I want to end with the best. This was it." I had such a good feeling about you two and about how it all worked. Let's stay in touch!

    Choosing Dan as our officiant was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning journey. He was genuinely interested in getting to know us as a couple and creating the ceremony we envisioned. We specifically requested a secular ceremony that included readings, our love story, and a few different rituals. Dan accommodated all of our requests with no issue and wove them into a beautiful, cohesive ceremony that was uniquely ours. He presented us with a first draft well in advance, responded very quickly to all of our messages, and continued to work with us on drafts until we had our perfect script. Dan was also a big help in leading our rehearsal and made sure that there were no questions left unanswered by the end. His performance on our wedding day was great and we heard from several of our guests that he'd left an impression on them. For the reasons above and more, we would definitely recommend Dan to any couple looking for an officiant in the Indianapolis area or beyond.

    You deserve a lot of the credit, Krystal, for being so good to work with and for working so hard to create the ceremony that you and Ben wanted. Thank you for the kind thoughts. I'm glad it all worked out so well, and I wish you the best for your life together.
