About PreacherComforts

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.

    Best of the best!!

    We didn't really know where to go for our interfaith, inter-racial, same-sex wedding ceremony, but we just kept browsing and found Pastor Dan. It was totally God. Turns out he is not a fake minister but an actual pastor! That was important to me growing up strict Apostolic. And for Kirk, our wedding pastor had to be respectful of his Jewish upbringing. Dan ended up saying part of the service in Hebrew for Kirk's family! We were going to go the cheap route and spend a ton on reception, but we soon realized that the ceremony is the most important part. By removing just one guest (just an acquaintance) from our reception, we were able to budget for the best wedding pastor in the Tri-state area. Dan is amazing! We're so glad we found him!

    I remember how you went back and forth between big “generic” wedding vs something smaller and more tailored to you. I honestly get bored with liturgy that is too cookie-cutter, and so you let me do my stuff and shine. We really created something special together. Thanks for your trust in me, guys.

    Wisdom beyond his years

    Daniel has such a calm mannerism, not to mention very handsome. Harold and I are both widowed, and he was so respectful of our previous marriages and brought them into the ceremony as a way of honoring our love continuing. Words cannot describe how breathtakingly gorgeous each word was that he selected. His speaking voice is easy to listen to, also! He attended to every detail that was important to us, so I will be recommending him to all the gals I know who need to get married. Thank you, Daniel!

    PreacherComforts's reply:

    Whitney and Harold, I'm honored to have received such a rating from you two. No lie, just hearing the stories of nursing your first loves during their chemo, radiation, and hospice really touched me. And your story of coming together through your grief reminded me of my own father's journey to finding love after loss. All that said, this was a very special service to me. Thank you for remembering to circle back with a positive review. Again, if there's anything I can help you with, you know where to find me!
