    Highly Satisfied!

    When I reached out to several wedding officiants on Wedding Wire, David was the only one who responded in a prompt professional manner. Our total experience with him was very positive and memorable! I'm glad we chose Forever Together.

    Forever, Together's reply:

    Thank you so much, folks. It was my pleasure working with you. Stay safe, take care of each other, and have a wonderful life together.

    David was great!

    David was a great officiant! Very early on in the process he gave us a lot of material to do research on to make sure we have time to pick/customize our own ceremony. He is also very patient and responsive to all of our questions and emails. He also has a great sense of humor, which match our ceremony vibes perfectly! Thank you so much David! Our ceremony wouldn't have been so amazing without you!

    Forever, Together's reply:

    It was a pleasure working with both of you, Xuan, and meeting your friends and family. Have a wonderful year and take care of each other!

    Amazing officiant!

    David and Joanna were awesome!

    We were initially conversing with Joanna through email and she was very informative and responded very quickly to our emails.

    David was who we met with in person; and my husband and I hit it off with him very well. He was very flexible in customizing the type of wedding ceremony we were wanting. We ultimately decided to work with him because he made us feel comfortable, he had experience in all types of ceremonies (we wanted to include both Filipino and Irish traditions) our ceremony and he was super funny!

    We opted to add a rehearsal the night before our wedding - David showed early and was good in catching up some bridal party members that showed up late. The day of the wedding he did more than we could have imagined. We're so happy he included humor in the ceremony - it really made us feel at ease.

    Overall, if you're on the fence about deciding to work with David; I'd highly suggest to do so! You won't be disappointed.

    Forever, Together's reply:

    Thank you so much, Crystel. I had a blast working on your wedding, especially making all of your requests work together smoothly. I'm so happy it all came together for you and you had fun. After all, if you can't have fun getting married, you probably won't have fun being married, either...right? Take care, all the best and thanks again. David

David Cooper
Owner/Officiant

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 Marshall
Joanna Marshall
Owner/Officiant

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~
