Wonderful Mountain Officiant!
During our wedding in November we had the pleasure of working with Mr. Don Anderson. He was truly wonderful before, during and after the wedding. He took time to learn about both my husband and I, and had genuine conversations with interest in our relationship and it's future. We really appreciated his open line of communication during our experience. We would highly recommend him for anyone searching for an officiant in the area.Sent on 04/26/2020

Don Anderson Is the sweetest
My fiancé and I last minute decided to get married and Pastor Don called us and was so kind and wonderful he worked with us and went above and beyond to make our big day absolutely perfect , the words he spoke moved us and made our ceremony truly beautiful , we really connected with him and he’s such a genuine gentle soul it was truly a pleasure to have him marry us . He also took lots of pictures for us and spoke encouraging words afterwords , if you’re getting married this is the man to do the job . Thank you so much for everything Mr. Anderson !!Sent on 10/21/2019

The Best Day Ever: 10/12/19
Rev. Don was incredible to work with! We decided to elope to The Smoky Mountains with our immediate family and being an out-of-town bride, so much of my planning relied on reviews from other couples. Rev. Don lives up to his excellent reviews! He worked with us to make our ceremony personalized and included my new stepdaughter (age 9) so well. I felt as though he genuinely wanted to get to know us, provided great advice for our newly-wedded life together, and truly loves marrying couples. Thank you!Sent on 10/18/2019
