My fiancée and I were in search of a good fit for our impromptu elopement-style wedding. We were looking for someone who was kind, down-to-earth, and generally not stuffy. Doug was that and so much more. We had an incredibly limited time frame and Doug devoted all of his time and was with us every step of the way.Sent on 09/05/2014
Doug's initial reply to our request was very kind, personalized, and didn't feel at all cookie-cutter like so many other officiant services we had looked at. Doug wrote a ceremony script for us that was built around the event we planned out and included beautiful quotes and poems that were relevant. He was great about getting our feedback and modifying the script as we desired.
On the day of, the weather had not been kind and we had to cancel our main event about two hours before it took place. My fiancée and I didn't have a contingency plan and the wedding party was small so we decided to have a cozy wedding in our home. This is where Doug completely transformed our wedding... Doug arrived with an alternate ceremony script in the event our main plan fell through and had even packed his car with an arch, white Christmas-style lights, candles, and the works just in case. He helped set everything up in our backyard and was so friendly and kind the entire time. We had a more beautiful wedding than we could have ever imagined and the ceremony was perfect, all thanks to Doug. My family and I enjoyed every moment and Doug even offered us a personalized gift to commemorate the wedding. Wow!
Doug went way beyond our expectations in every possible way. Doug is one of the nicest, most genuine people I've ever met and my wife and I are so blessed he was able to officiate our wedding. Even though Doug came in as our officiator, he left our home as a very dear friend and kindred spirit and I feel that we all made a very special connection. It is my honor to give Doug the highest rating available.
Doug, you are the best and everyone needs to know it!

J. Douglas Prendergast's reply:WeddingWire has a new respond feature, though I'm not sure when it was implemented. But anyway, it was certainly my pleasure to officiate your and Wes' marriage, Audrey. You wanted snow and it happened (I can't take credit for that, it was all Mother Nature). You are already so beautiful and your wedding make up, hair, and wardrobe just made you absolutely stunning! It was fun to watch the two of you pose for your photos with the snow falling down around you. The holidays will never be the same for your family as you'll now be celebrating from your Anniversary before Christmas all the way through to New Years. How exciting!
