Our wedding ceremony was awesome! Everything was done to our specifications. Everyone involved was professional and courteous. I have to say that my husband was hesitant with booking online since we live too far away to be able to meet with Dan in person, but after our day, he was very pleased with how everything went. The flowers Dan provided were beautiful as well. We honestly could not have asked for a nicer, less stress-free day!Sent on 01/24/2020

So much more than I expected
Dan provided us with beautiful vows in a gorgeous setting at SpiriTaos Gardens. Even the weather was perfect for being so late in the season. Dan kept in touch with us leading up to the date, and the ceremony was amazing, meaningful, and beautiful. I highly, highly recommend Embracing Ceremony for anyone who needs an accommodating, wonderful officiant.Sent on 11/04/2019

Dan will take the time to listen to you so your ceremony is how you want it. He absolutely gives your wedding the care and attention it deserves.
It is always a pleasure to work with Dan and witness his ceremonies. Dan manages to capture the unique chemistry of each couple and cultivates sincere celebrations of love with wedding guests. His flexibility and attentiveness are valuable assets for any event. I cannot recommend him enough.
Dan with Embracing Ceremony is the perfect choice for a wedding officiant. He is very professional and reliable, as well as flexible (which is an important characteristic to have in this industry!). Dan does an incredible job with customizing his ceremonies based on the individual couples' vision for their wedding vows.
