Tania and Scott’s wedding

David was great to work with from beginning to end for our Bilingual wedding. Great communication, very professional, and clearly experienced. He was calm and collected even in the hectic beginnings when we had to push the ceremony back almost 30 minutes. Thank you David from both Tania and myself you were excellent!

Magical and beautiful ceremony

We chose David because he was bilingual and all the great’s reviews. Also the background of the company and the touch storytelling about his wife. He made our custom ceremony more special and to be honest was magical! He get ours guests to follow the whole ceremony and made some special moments for us.

amazing! 11-12-2022

I was lucky to find David on somewhat of a short notice (roughly a month or less before the wedding) . He answered all my questions very quickly, and any email I sent he always responded right away. We decided to do a bi lingual wedding for some of our Spanish speaking guests and it was perfect! we were able to customize our ceremony to how we wanted it to flow. David showed up early to the ceremony I was not able to speak with him how the plan was too because my 2 year old was having a meltdown minutes before the ceremony which made it start a few minutes late but he was great and rolled with it and it was such a beautiful and amazing ceremony. Many of my guests complimented on David! would highly recommend him to anyone!

thank you so much again David!

David Cooper was a professional performing musician for over 25 years. During that time, he had the good fortune to work with some of the world’s finest artists. Since he retired from the music business, he has provided computer and network support and training for some of Seattle’s most prominent and progressive corporations. When Joanne’s wedding calendar became so full that she was forced to turn loving couples away, David knew it was time to join the celebration!

Joanna Marie spent over 20 years working in the medical industry as a successful bookkeeper and Patient Accounts Manager. When she, like so many others, suddenly and unexpectedly found herself back on the job market, she also found herself with unlimited free time. She decided to turn misfortune into opportunity by doing something she’d always wanted to do: help couples validate and celebrate their love by helping them create the wedding ceremony of their dreams!

Sadly, Joanna Marie passed away in 2020. Forever, Together was her dream, and her accomplishment. David decided to continue the business…as he believed she would have wanted…in her memory, and in her honor.

I recently had the opportunity to work with Reverends David and Joanne, and I found them friendly, professional, and genuinely concerned for the couple's joyful celebration. They go out of their way to meet their client's needs and desires for a great wedding. I happily refer any couple to the Forever, Together when I am not able to serve.

Forever Together is such a great wedding officiant to work with! We worked together on a wedding and he did such a great job both at the rehearsal as well as the wedding ceremony itself. He has a calmness about him that helps put everyone at ease, and he also uses just the right amount of joking around to calm the nerves and make everyone laugh! I would love to work with them again! ~Simply by Tamara Nicole~
