About PreacherComforts

As seen in the New York Times Style Section in March 2021...

You are the Occasion! - You've known each other for several months or several years, and you've withstood your first few relationship challenges. Now you're looking at options for taking your next step together. Let the Reverend Dr. Daniel Rodriguez Schlorff bless your relationship by presiding at your ceremony.

Ordained, Period. - With over 20 years of professional ministerial experience, Daniel is ready for any scenario. He holds dual standing as a Baptist pastor (Alliance of Baptists and Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists) and the American Protestant Union. As a denominationally ordained minister, Daniel is authorized to perform wedding ceremonies in all 50 states and all U.S. territories. Unlike a town justice of the peace or an officiant with an online ordination, Daniel holds two theological master's degrees as well as the Doctor of Ministry, preparing him to handle any eventuality with grace, humor, and style.

Your Vision, Implemented - None of Daniel's ceremonies are identical. Each ceremony is painstakingly crafted according to the couple's stated interests and preferences.

Love is Love - Daniel presides over wedding ceremonies for all consenting adult partners who wish to join as spouses, regardless of their creed or identity: Christian, interfaith, humanist, secular, spiritual non-religious, same-sex couples, gender non-conforming, gender non-binary... And as an adjunct professor of world religions, Daniel considers it a treat to learn about different cultures and traditions, bringing them into focus wherever the couple chooses to hold their ceremony.

Any Location - Locations have ranged from a park in Missouri to Yale University's historic Battell Chapel, from the couple's Chicago congregation to the Union League, and from the oceanfront in Greenwich to a country club in Wallingford, CT where the couple always enjoys spare time together.

Your Style, Reflected - Liturgical vestments are not required for a ceremony to be a real ceremony. Daniel has no persona to maintain. He will wear a chicken suit if that fits into some purpose. If you're wearing a wedding gown and tux, Daniel will dress appropriately. Linen shorts? Daniel will join the party. Your personal style will be reflected through every aspect of the ceremony, down to the last fiber.

Diverse Worldviews - Daniel specializes in negotiating diverse (if not divergent!) worldviews and political and religious perspectives within a single family. Regardless of past conflict or avoiding topics, Daniel will work with couples to craft a meaningful and polished ceremony that pulls the families together.

Services Included - Initial consultation, contract signing, service planning, optional premarital counseling, ongoing phone/email conversations, the actual ceremony, and the signing of the state license are all included in the honorarium. Some add-ons may include running the wedding rehearsal (in conjunction with the wedding planner), prayer at the rehearsal dinner, attendance at reception, prayer at reception, and significant follow-up after your big day.

    Unforgettable Ceremony

    My partner and I were seeking an LGBT-friendly officiant for our elopement-style ceremony and could not have been happier with Reverend Doctor Daniel’s services! He personalized the ceremony to fit what we were looking for in terms of tone as well as content. His remarks and tone were very engaging and met our unique need of a ceremony without guests which would be recorded and viewed by family and friends at a later time. He also injected some humor where appropriate which was wonderful. All of that being said, he stood out because he truly cared about making our ceremony special and personalized. We would absolutely recommend Reverend Doctor Daniel for your officiant needs!

    Dear Rosanna and Jackie, it was a relatively quick turn-around but it was fun to put together. The stories you included helped me with the personalization. There were two exciting byproducts of your ceremony, however, and one you probably already know. Of course, I can now say "as seen in the NYT Style section" on my website. Worth it! Also, which you might not know: the two of you introduced me to K-Pop! Love it! Looking forward to seeing your pictures. "Air hugs" :)

    Absolutely perfect!

    Daniel did an amazing job! He was very excited to work with us on our unique wedding concept. My wife and I met playing Dungeons and Dragons. This was an important detail in our lives and we wanted it to be important in our ceremony. He was very excited when he heard about this and relished the opportunity to do something new and special. The ceremony he designed incorporated elements and verbiage from the games we so love (including magical spells!). Daniel even provided equipment so we could stream our ceremony to our family and friends who could not attend due to the pandemic. He went above and beyond making our ceremony heartfelt and fun. We absolutely recommend him.

    Steph and Justin, again I’m humbled by this great review. You were a dream to work with, and I’m very pleased you were pleased. Keep in touch! I’d love to see what’s next on the journey for you two.
