Open, flexible, and accommodating
Dan was our only choice when it came to getting an officiant for our wedding! He helped us narrate and add personal touches to the ceremony that we didn't know how to include. He was also very flexible and able to addend the script with a week's notice due to some sudden event! Didn't receive a bad word about the ceremony!Sent on 02/23/2020

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 Made Our Day the Best it Could Be!
Dan was fantastic and absolutely the best person to work with and made our day perfect. We can whole-heartedly recommend him as an Officiant! We met Dan at a Bridal Fair just a few months before our wedding. We were unfamiliar with the concept of an Officiant and listened to a presentation by him describing his services. As we are in our mid-sixties, we did not want a traditional religious ceremony, although he often conducts them as well. We were looking for an "Island Breeze" wedding and he was incredibly helpful. With only three months to prepare, he was there to guide us through the process. He gave us suggestions for our vows and many other aspects of the ceremony that we had not considered, including incorporating our theme into his words of wisdom. All of our guests were also very impressed with the ceremony. Dan was always very professional, non-judgemental, supportive, gave us the time to get to know us as individuals, responded quickly to every request, and showed personal interest in making our day the best day of our lives. We now consider him not only our Officiant but also a friend.Sent on 10/31/2019
