    Highly Recommend Officiant Rev. Don Anderson

    One of the biggest things on our destination wedding checklist was finding an officiant. After some searching, we found Don Anderson and I am so happy that we did. Don took the time to get to know Ethan and I over the phone, asking us about our story and our upcoming future. He also had us fill out separate questionnaires that he used in our vows that made our wedding party feel like he had known us. Don made sure to communicate with us frequently throughout the entire wedding process which helped eliminate a lot of pre-wedding stress. We highly recommend Don and are thankful for his presence and words that we will remember for a lifetime.

    Fantastic experience

    We had a wonderful vow renewal service with Don! He really got to know us and was able to weave parts of our original service into our vow renewal. Easy to communicate with and very flexible. Thanks so much for being part of our day!
