About Dave Goldstein Weddings

Dave Goldstein was ordained to officiate the wedding of a couple who liked his standup act (Dave has performed across the U.S., Canada, and Europe) and since then he has officiated weddings for almost 100 couples in ten states. Dave has figured out how to do just the right amount of tasteful humor--or none if you prefer--on such a romantic and memorable day. His only goal is that the couple he's working for is thrilled by their ceremony and wedding day.


Experience

You may recognize wedding officiant, comedian, and actor Dave Goldstein from one of his many appearances on
 Late Night with Conan O'Brien. His stage act, which has been praised by The New York Post ("...funny") and The Asbury Park Press ("...his comic star is on the rise!"), is a blend of original writing and inspired live riffs. He has performed stand up comedy on The Comedy Network, Sirius/XM Satellite Radio, and The National Lampoon Radio Network.

Dave is honored to perform for our troops and was the headlining comic on a tour of U.S. Army posts in Europe. He was also the comedy auctioneer for The Nelson Mandela Legacy Fund at the Embassy of the Republic of South Africa in Washington DC and The Carlos Beltran Foundation in New York ($50,000 for Derek Jeter's cleats).

He's opened theater performances for Dennis Miller, handled the audience warm up for Drew Carey's CBS TV show The Power of Ten, been read on the Sports Illustrated website, and was an original member of the improv group Far Beneath Gotham in New York City.

Services Offered

Dave Goldstein offers these services to his clients: Officiating on your wedding day, completely customizing a unique wedding ceremony, and completing and filing your marriage license.

    Where do i start, I really don't know to be honest. Dave is the man he kept our whole ceremony upbeat and relaxing, he has a way with words. My guests loved him and the venue thought he was amazing. The way Dave handles himself you feel as if you are dealing with a close friend not a man hired to marry you. He works with you in every aspect of the vows and ceremony and doesn't make any part difficult. Dave made our day and we cannot thank him enough.

    Dave is everything you want in an officiant!

    Dave is the BEST wedding officiant we could have ever asked for! He was beyond amazing, friendly and helpful. Dave was with us every step of the way from our very first brunch meeting to figuring out what we wanted to include in the ceremony and all throughout our wedding day while entertaining our guests. He accommodated all our requests and made sure we knew what to expect come our wedding day. Dave is very easy to contact, super responsive and gave us excellent guidance throughout our wedding planning process.

    Our ceremony went off without too much of a hitch. Dave arrived early and went over the lineup with us and helped us relax before the actual thing took place. During the ceremony, my guests truly loved Dave as he kept everyone engaged with his humor and witty remarks. Dave provided us with the perfect balance of humor and sweetness for our ceremony with his mesmerizing storytelling which allowed our love story to be told in a seamless fashion.

    Even when my husband bumbled the ring exchange (the husband was too eager to marry me and placed the ring on my finger way too early), Dave improv’d it so masterfully that everyone had a good laugh. After the ceremony, we received so many compliments on what a wonderful and awesome officiant we had!

    We highly definitely recommend Dave if you are looking for someone who is professional, funny and just a blast to have at your wedding!! And the best part is you get a lifelong FRIEND in Dave after your wedding. We can’t wait to attend one of his shows soon!.
