    David Cooper was Excellent

    David was wonderful from start to finish. He officiated our friend's wedding with humor and love which was just what they wanted. He was organized, kind, and on time. We highly recommend! This wedding was at The Ruins in Seattle with roughly 100 guests. Thank you David!

    Calm, collected, cool, and hilarious!

    David went above and beyond at our small and intimate wedding we had in October 2021. We had him show up for rehearsal the night before at the lodge we were getting married at which made the next day feel so much easier to navigate since we were definitely going for a non traditional vibe for our intimate wedding. David was so helpful and easy to work with and was the exact officiant we were looking for since he specializes in handfasting rituals. Even though our bridal party forgot the cords at the ceremony, he made the crowd feel at ease with his humor which I felt made the ceremony absolutely perfect and awesome! I would totally recommend him to anyone getting married in the Seattle/Snohomish area. Thank you so much!!

    Forever, Together's reply:

    Wow, thanks so much Sarah. It was my pleasure meeting and working with you both, and I had a lot of fun at your wedding. I'm so happy you were satisfied with the way things went. Stay safe, and take care of each other. - David

    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.

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.

Simply by Tamara Nicole Simply by Tamara Nicole Wedding Planners

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~
