The Only Choice!

David was astounding! He put together amazing material and personalized it, he took care of sending the marriage license for us so we had one less worry, he was great with guidance and being patient with us knowing how nervous we were and trying to adapt to an ever changing mood of a toddler mid ceremony. There was not a dry eye in the house and I can’t thank him enough. The communication from day one to day after was incredibly important and he was there for every step and answered every question. Thank you again David!

David was amazing!

My husband and I can't say enough good things about David! He made the ceremony planning process so easy for us and customized it so it completely encompassed us as a couple. He was very organized, punctual, and professional, not to mention he's a great speaker! Our families thought he was amazing as well!! I would highly recommend David!!
