Pastor David was a joy to work with from the start. He was willing to drive out to the hill country To officiate our NYE wedding, and also made sure we had an outline of his sermon In advance to be sure we were ok with the wording and content. It was important to us to have someone of faith perform the ceremony, and Pastor David definitely checks that box. It is evident in his character and demeanor, and in the beautiful words and blessing he gave us on our wedding day. Thank you Pastor David for being such a big part of what made our wedding day so special!Sent on 02/04/2019

Pastor David, he was so nice. Friend of mine also had his wedding with him. Good at timing and communication. It was was great service !!!Sent on 03/13/2019
I definitely recommend him.
David offers a discount if there is a simple wedding with no rehearsal and no special prep or detailed coordinating. A simple wedding includes those with just three standing: David, the bride and groom, or just five standing: David, the bride and groom and bridesmaid and best man. Travel costs are involved (over 20 miles one way) but instead of $200 for the ceremony, David charges only between $100 and $150 depending on how simple the ceremony is. He also performs renewal of vows, as well as ceremonies in which vows are recited formerly and the couple is pronounced, etc. even though the couple is already legally married.
If booked before end of June 2019 I will cut my charge by half for out of town travel. I currently charge $50, $100 or $150 for travel (mileage and time away from family) for distances that are about 20 miles away, 40 miles away, or 60 miles away from my home near far South Austin. So the charge would be either $25, $50 or $75 for those same distances.
