    Highly Recommended

    Dusty was recommended by our wedding coordinator and we were extremely happy with his service. He was very responsive to our emails and questions. We also liked that Dusty provided us with a a draft ceremony that we could tailor to our needs. On the day of the wedding Dusty arrived on time and the ceremony was perfect.. Our family and friends also commented that they really liked Dusty. We would highly recommend Dusty’s services to other couples.

    Beautifully Personal

    Words can not describe how amazing Dusty made our ceremony. It was very important to grandparents for our wedding have Jewish elements in it and he did a wonderful job incorporating some Jewish Traditions in our not very religious ceremony.
    Dusty also took time out of his busy wedding summer to meet with my husband and I. He helped us write our vows. At first the idea of someone I never met marrying us seemed a little impersonal, but getting to know Dusty, having him meet with us, made all the difference. It was beautiful and there truly wasn't a dry eye in the house.

    Dusty has worked for many times as an Officiant/Minister. He is wonderful. He contacts my couples well ahead of their wedding date and writes a personalized Ceremony for them. I have only fantastic things to say about Dusty. He is genuine, honest, and so very nice to work with. He has never been late, always dresses appropriately and I would give him 10 stars out of 10! He is caring and interested with all my couples. I would not hesitate to hire Dusty Hoesly ever! kim colombini weddings by the sea - santa barbara
