Why settle for the same clichéd, predictable service everyone else uses? You're unique, and your wedding should be, too. I'll work with you to design the perfect ceremony to match your own individual style and personality. I've performed over 100 weddings over the past two years, and each one has been an amazing experience. I look forward to helping you make your wedding exactly what you want it to be.
I believe that there should be nothing standing in the way of two loving people who want to spend the rest of their lives together. Your ceremony will be afforded the dignity, respect, and open-mindedness it deserves, regardless of your age, race, or sexual orientation.
In my other life, I'm a secondary teacher with both undergraduate and graduate degrees in English. I understand what a difference just the right words make, and I am available to help you to craft vows that convey your love and devotion to one another.

An Absolutely Perfect Wedding Experience!
We don’t even know where to begin to let everyone know what an absolutely perfect experience it was working with Dave for our wedding. So, we will simply start at the beginning.Sent on 08/30/2019
Back in June, we began looking for a wedding officiant in Thumbtack for our wedding in August. After creating a profile and selecting officiants that seemed to be a good match, Dave was one of the first – if not the first – to reach out to us. His message was extremely warm, inviting, thorough, and sincere. As we exchanged messages, it became clear that he was enjoying a family vacation but made the time to connect because he simply loves being able to bring people together who want to spend their lives together. But recognizing the importance of family time, we elected to reconnect a week or so later.
True to his word, Dave reached out to us as soon as he was home from vacation, and we set up an in-person meeting for later that week. Not surprisingly, Dave was prompt, professional, engaging, and 100% interested in helping us develop a one-of-a-kind ceremony that was perfect for us (a very small gathering of just us and our 6 children), including a beautiful sand ceremony to ensure that our children would have special roles during our big day.
Throughout the entire planning process, communication with Dave was easy, he is extremely professional yet an absolute hoot, and his attention to detail – including choosing his tie specifically to match our wedding colors – is second to none. We were able to easily edit the text of our ceremony, and the finished product was perfect for us.
Fast forward to our wedding day at beautiful Crystal Lake in Middletown, CT, and Dave was his typical early self. He is so composed and easygoing, all 8 of us were quickly at ease and ready to move on to the task at hand. The only hiccup to the day (which included perfect weather) was our professional photographer getting a bit lost and arriving a little late. We were apologetic, yet Dave’s simple response was, “This is the only place I need to be today”, reassuring us and making us feel as if our wedding was the most important wedding ceremony he would ever perform. Folks, being able to make a couple feel that important when someone performs hundreds of them – that is a gift.
The ceremony went off without a hitch, it was beautiful, emotional, and very our own, and our children were made to feel special and a big part of it. It may sound corny, but when Dave pronounced us husband and wife, it truly was a magical moment, as we kissed and then embraced our children – and Dave, who was truly not just the officiant, but part of our extended family at that moment.
If you’re looking for your perfect wedding ceremony, do not hesitate – contact Dave today. We will forever remember our perfect day at Crystal Lake. Thank you, Dave!

The best decision we made!
Dave was excellent! We loved his positivity, energy and professionalism. He took the time to learn about our relationship and customize our ceremony to fit us perfectly. He answered our questions quickly and made us really comfortable planning our ceremony. Dave gave us amazing memories and we couldn’t be happier that we chose him. He made our day perfect! And our guests were raving about him.Sent on 08/30/2019
Love, Honor, and Cherish's reply:I don't think I had seen that picture yet! That is absolutely wonderful. I wish I could say that wasn't the first time a Best Man had to chase the ring down the aisle at one of my weddings, but...it totally was.
