    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,

    Thank you Ron. I'm glad that I was able to fulfill your wishes. Your remote location was awesome! Such a remarkable view of the Ghost Ranch geologic formations. You've got my best wishes always.

    Memorable ceremony on a mountain

    Dan put together a beautiful and memorable ceremony and vows that we both loved, seamlessly mixing quotes from an impressive variety of sources. We really enjoyed reviewing the transcript afterward. He is responsive, laid back and kind, and the perfect, most knowledgable choice for a New Mexico hiking wedding!

    Embracing Ceremony's reply:

    Thanks Valerie! I loved the meadow you chose -- so incredibly memorable for all of us. Yay to your intrepid families for making it up with seemingly minimal complaints! I'm honored to be part of your memories.

    Thanks Amanda. May I say my services are S.E.E. in the future? (seamless, easy and effective)! I like it. Thanks for that new phrase. So glad everything went well with El Monte Sagrado as well. A beautiful spot for a ceremony, for sure.
