About

Every wedding, even small and informal, or even an elopement, is a special and powerful moment. It is always an honor to be part of such a significant event. Each couple is unique, and most are first time wedding consumers. So I enjoy helping them create their perfect ceremony, ( Sometimes adding the perfect music). Experience matters... I'll help you plan, then , on the day, I will work with you to make it all a reality.

* 22 years and hundreds of weddings ; 7 times BEST OF WEDDINGS and 8 Times COUPLES CHOICE awards.

* My style is relaxed and easy-going... a little laughter goes well at a wedding. I was a high school teacher for 32 years, so I can engage comfortably with folks and adjust and adapt in the moment. (No wedding goes exactly as planned)

* I have an online ceremony-building template to help you create the perfect, unique ceremony. ... Or , if you want just the basics, I will create one for you....as much or as little direction as you need.

* My fee includes travel, use of the ceremony template, and planning time by phone and/or meeting, and , of course, executing and filing the license to make it legal.

* On-line e-signature contracts...eliminate printing/scanning/e-mailing. ... Make the process easy and less time-consuming.

* Optional Ceremony microphone and amplification

*As an option, you can add an elegant touch... and simplify your planning... with an officiant who also provides music by an award winning wedding guitarist before, during, and after performing your ceremony. This is an affordable and unique touch to make your smaller less formal wedding memorable and special.

* Officiant only services or Officiant /Music combinations, NH, ME, VT, indoors or out, even hike -in locations.

Excellent officiant

Dwight was such a wonderful person to work with as our wedding officiant. He was professional, easy going, flexible, responsive, and always punctual for our meetings. He gave us a template to work from for designing our ceremony with possible ideas ranging from using them as they were to designing the ceremony completely. The most important part was what a genuine and kind person he is. He brought that to the ceremony and took time to get to know us when we met with him prior to the ceremony. Finally, his flexibility and easygoing nature was so important for our day because we had an outdoor wedding - this helped us to feel less stressed because we knew that all would go well. I highly recommend him as a wedding officiant - our wedding wouldn't have been the same without him!

Fantastic Officiant

We had a wonderful wedding and Dwight really helped bring it together. He was our officiant. We met ahead of the wedding and discussed expectations around the ceremony, as well as the language and tone we were going for. His priority was always ensuring we had the ceremony we envisioned. We had a million things to worry about, but Dwight was never one of them!

The ceremony was beautiful and fun. Dwight is an excellent orator and was able to speak to a room of about 80 people clearly without a microphone.

Beautiful, personal ceremony and easy planning!

It was such a pleasure working with Dwight for our wedding ceremony. He made creating the ceremony easy with a template that allowed for us to completely customize and personalize our ceremony. He didn't balk at all when we wanted to do our ceremony outside in 20 degree weather! He responded quickly to our initial request and continued to be responsive and available throughout the process. He made our ceremony special and I would definitely recommend Dwight to other couples!

When it comes to music, Dwight is the standard all others try to achieve. His acoustic guitar brings a special ambiance to each wedding ceremony. It is romantic, and magical. As another wedding professional, I know how stressful weddings can be for a couple. I am impressed by Dwight's calming nature and his ability to know exactly how to accomplish the couple's vision through music.
