The table is set. You've invested your heart and soul into this event, and as the time approaches you begin to reflect on the decisions leading up to this point. Today the decor and food choice seems to pale in significance to the officiant who will spearhead the event.

My name is Dana and I want to make your event a success. I offer 15 years of non-denominational ministry and professional event planning experience. My public speaking experience spans 14 years, 16 states and two foreign countries. I also sharpen my public speaking skills weekly as well as a member of Toastmasters.

Many couples wrestle with the question of who should officiate their wedding, especially if they don't have a church or a Pastor who knows their names. I also know people who therefore entrusted the responsibility to an officiant who showed up intoxicated.

As an ordained minister, I feel that spiritualizing a wedding for a not-so-spiritual couple is a disservice to them. Everything about a wedding is personifies the couple, so I match the ceremony with the couple's spirituality and represent them by my words.

My Masters is in Theology and Counseling, so I am able to prepare you for 'becoming one' without 'falling apart'!

The most hectic part of my own wedding (literally) was navigating the wedding license procedures. I will help guide you through this, and will assume the responsibility of verifying and submitting your license after the wedding -- that's no time to concern yourself with paperwork!

When you call to set up your free consultation I will secure your time and date pending the receipt of a non-refundable $200 deposit. After your consultation and also upon receiving the deposit I will send you a ceremony template in a Word document by e-mail. You can make changes, and then return it via e-mail.

After your consultation and also upon receiving the deposit I will send you a ceremony template in a Word document by e-mail. You can make changes, then return it via e-mail. Next, you will receive a full draft of your customized wedding ceremony for your approval prior to the big day.

Please don't hesitate to email or call (602-312-8505), so you can get a better sense of what I'm like. I look forward to meeting you.

Dana did a wonderful job officiating our wedding. He was on top of everything. One of the special things he did was to speak to the people at the beginning of the ceremony, allowing us to look out and all the friends and family and see their support. So special. Everyone felt like they were a part of the ceremony and not just a spectator. We also loved how we got to look into each other's eyes instead of being forced to look at the minister the whole time. Absolutely five stars.

Dana Salsbury was the perfect officiant for us. My fiance and I were not sure which direction we wanted to go with our wedding ceremony. We met with Dana and talked to him about our story, our beliefs, our values, our personalities, and our wedding style, and he then created a perfect wedding ceremony for us. We couldn't be happier with the end result. The ceremony was an absolute reflection of our values and our relationship. Dana also made sure that all our official paperwork and marriage license were taken care of while we relaxed and honeymooned. Thank you so much Dana for creating our dream ceremony!
