A New Beginning
Special days have been hard to come by in 2020. So when I asked Diane to be my bride in April of this year it was a very bright spot in an otherwise dismal socially divided and pandemically stricken world. Our lives were changing in many ways, we joined our households and worked diligently to protect our family, friends and coworkers by staying apart. Our decision to marry on the third anniversary of our meeting, December 20, was a difficult one to make. Our plans were for a wedding in 2021 but we chose not to wait despite the challenge it would create. To bring our loved ones together when all indications were to the contrary. When we contacted Reverend Dr. David Anderson to perform our ceremony, it was with much trepidation and deep concern in many ways. Diane and I wanted to be married, to keep our loved ones safe but to have a memorable experience. Our zoom meetings with David inspired us in many ways, from his counseling on later in life marriages to understanding our relationship, we knew his insight would be a value to us for years to come. He listened to us intently and made our thoughts the centerpiece of the ceremony. David has an easy way about him, and our fears and doubts melted away like the winters snows. The day came and the service was beautiful. David’s words of God’s encouragement and understanding were wrapped in the love we bear for one another. He took time to learn about Diane, her family and her feeling for me. He did the same for me in a gentle and humorous way. All of this came through in the lessons, the scripture and hopes that were evident in our ceremony. His suggestion of the “wine box” was wonderful and it became a family effort to create the box which now contain our written notes to one another, the sermon and a chance for an annual reminder of why we chose to marry. Our family and friends all asked for copies of the sermon, our mothers were particularly struck by the words we shared and the thoughts that were dedicated during the service.Sent on 01/01/2021
A beautiful day, a wonderful service, a new beginning. Thank you David for all that you gave to a glowing bride and her appreciative groom; peace, reassurance and everlasting hope.

Perfect Officiant for any couple.
David was the perfect officiant for our wedding. After going through a couple different meetings with different officiants, we landed on David. We knew right away that he was perfect for our personalities. David was prompt with all forms of contact and a true pleasure to work with. We formed a personal relationship with David before our marriage with counseling sessions that deepened our understanding of each other as well as allowing him to get to know us. The Ceremony was completely and perfectly catered to our exact personalities and he was able to incorporate all of the details that were important to us. We had numerous people that came up to us at our reception and told us how the ceremony redefined how they thought about love. When our original wedding plan was derailed due to COVID-19 David stepped up and married us on our original date in March as well as again in front of family and friends on in August. We could not give David a high enough review for his services. Thank you again from a happy bride and groom!Sent on 08/29/2020
