About

$450 Typical Price

I had the honor of serving as Mayor of Charlottesville from 2008-2012 and one of the things that I most enjoyed about serving in public office was being asked to perform weddings for various friends, constituents and visitors to Charlottesville. It was such a delightful experience that I decided to start my own side business as a professional wedding officiant. I specialize in performing relatively simple, civil ceremonies that can be custom-designed to reflect the personalities, backgrounds and values of the happy couple. Though I am eligible to officiate at weddings anywhere in the Commonwealth of Virginia, my primary geographic focus is Charlottesville and the surrounding counties.

If you, or someone you know, is in need of a friendly, experienced officiant for your upcoming nuptials, please visit my website -- www.LetDaveMarryYou.com -- to learn more about me, my services, my pricing, etc. (Or you can find me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/LetDaveMarryYou.) Thanks!

    Great Experience!

    Dave was very helpful throughout the planning process, day of and even following our wedding. He provided a template for a typical ceremony and then helped us to customize it to our liking. Dave did an excellent job of making our special day as amazing as it was!

    Dave is Wonderful

    Dave was wonderful to work with and he really helped make our day meaningful to us. He provided us with a base ceremony script and we were able to tailor it to fit what we were looking for. He was also really helpful in working with us around covid delays and giving us information about the logistics of the ceremony and what to expect after with our license. Above all that he’s super nice!

    Responsive and friendly

    We hired Dave to “make us legal” and complete the marriage paperwork separately from our ceremony. He was super responsive and flexible to work with and organize a meeting time. If you want a friend or family member to do the ceremony and they are not ordained, Dave is the way to go!
