Owner Dave Evans has performed more than 300 ceremonies, each personalized to the couples he’s worked with.

Special Note: Due to efforts to contain Covid-19, I Hereby Pronounce You is taking precautions to ensure we do not inadverently spread the virus to you or your loved ones and friends. I wear sterile throw-away gloves for ceremonies and avoid contact with people by not shaking hands. Many couples are electing to delay their wedding date to a time later this year or to reschedule their wedding next year. I work with couples who wish to get married during this public health emergency for personal or legal reasons by conducting a very short, intimate wedding and signing your license and certificate in accordance with State regulations to avoid crowds or unecessary meetings. In this situation I offer a significant discounted rate (depending on my travel and time involved). My goal is to provide wedding ceremonies as necessary during this public health emergency. I wish you and your loved ones health and wellness.

    Highly Recommend

    My husband and are highly recommend Mr. Evans. We needed a minister in a hurry and Dave was the very first person that responded to my request and when me and Dave spoke, he made me feel special and everything will be okay, and he put my mind to ease.

    Thank you Lanessa! It was my pleasure to be there for you and Andrew and your family! I wish you a happy life together!

    Overall, fantastic!

    With Dave as our officiant everything went very smoothly. Dave arrived promptly, was very very courteous and gave us exactly what we needed!

    He worked with us on everything, timing, a great speech and told our story very succinctly.

    He was so professional and I wish we could get married again to just have him be our officiant again.

    I couldn’t recommend Dave more for being our officiant!
