    Absolutely phenomenal!

    Our experience with Don was more than we could have dreamed of. He has an incredible way of making you feel like the only people that he has to marry, although I know he is busy with many couples! His counseling was so beneficial and since we lived far away, we would end up spending 1+ hour talking with him on the phone. He never made us feel judged or criticized. We felt warm in his company and he really helped us grow from our past experiences so we could focus on the future.

    The day of our wedding was amazing. He was timely, despite traffic, and calm throughout. The ceremony was so incredibly special and our guests couldn't stop talking about how lovely it was and how much it focused on our love and marriage. He incorporated so many things we had spoken about in our counseling in the best way possible. The words were so encouraging and meaningful.

    Since the wedding day, Don continues to make us feel valued and it feels as though he is our biggest fan.

    Stop looking now if you are trying to find the perfect person for your wedding. You have found him here!

    Wonderful Experience

    Don was great to work with for our wedding. We chose to do our pre-marital counseling with him and he was very flexible and easy to work with. He also incorporated special things from our pre-marital counseling into our wedding ceremony so it was very personalized. He was a great choice for our wedding minister and definitely put me at ease and made our wedding very special! I would highly recommend him!
