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.
I Hereby Pronounce You provides ceremony officiant services for a variety of wedding types, including religious, interfaith, non-religious ceremonies and vow renewals. Chaplain Dave Evans also provides counseling services prior to your wedding day, and can help with writing custom wedding vows. His religious offerings include:

Look no further for a personalized ceremony
We couldn't have found a better officiant for our wedding. We met with Dave twice in the year leading up to the big day and he clearly had a vested interest in our relationship and our wedding.Sent on 03/11/2020
He had a solid understanding of what type of ceremony we wanted for our special day. We were able to customize the readings and the unity ceremony and he handled everything else. The end result was a ceremony that was unique to my wife and I. We couldn't have been happier with how things went.

A wonderful Officiant for a wonderful wedding
We met with Dave shortly after our engagement and sat down in a Panera to go over the services and options he offered. After our meeting we immediately knew Dave was the officiant for us. He offers premarital counseling which is something all couples should look into when engaged to look at what married life will be like. Dave has a positive attitude and works with couples on discovering the topics that arrive during married life.Sent on 10/21/2019
We wanted to do a hand fasting ceremony during our wedding and Dave was able to preform the ceremony perfectly. Dave is a great public speaker and was able to highlight experiences with in the wedding ceremony and everyone enjoyed it!
