Intimate Wedding at Spectacular Location
Dan was the perfect wedding officiate. He was flexible and respectful of our wishes. He customized a service that was Native American in flavor but was also inclusive to our Jewish and Christian roots. He included the perfect prayers and vows to complete it. He also accommodated our rather remote location and arrived exactly at the time that he said he would. A very pleasurable and memorable experience to last a lifetime. Thanks again Dan,Sent on 09/19/2019
