    Just Pick Him!

    If you are reading these reviews and need a sign, this is it! He is so highly rated on WeddingWire and The Knot, I didn't even interview anyone else. After my initial call with Don, I knew he was exactly what we needed. Don did an absolutely wonderful job officiating our ceremony! I was blown away by how much he picked up through our premarital sessions and I am so thrilled that through this journey we have found a new friend!

    The Perfect Day

    We could not have had a more perfect ceremony on our day. Don took the time to get to know us and make our journey, values, and relationship part of the ceremony. We would recommend him to anyone!

    Excellent officiant

    Don did an amazing job. He took the time to get to know us in months before ceremony through several phone conversations. He did a great job with the ceremony, so glad we went with him.
