    David Anderson

    Dave Anderson was awesome! He helped us make our wedding day perfect. He was there during the planning process with helpful suggestions and advice, during the rehearsal managing all our questions and was flawless during the ceremony! We were so impressed and grateful for his knowledge and skills as an officiant. We definitely would recommend him for your wedding!

    12/10/2022 wedding

    My husband Connor and I had the pleasure of working with Rev. David Anderson for a year before our wedding for premarital counseling and to perform our wedding ceremony. He was truly a highlight of our wedding and our work with him is something I will cherish. David was warm, funny, and intentional in your meetings with him. He wanted to make sure that we were prepared in not only our relationship but for the day of the wedding. He put us at ease by making sure our relationship was at the forefront, and not just the day of the wedding. Our ceremony was so beautiful and he brought humor and personalization that did not go unnoticed! It was such a memorable ceremony and we are still getting compliments on how much people enjoyed hearing Rev. David speak. Thank you so much David!
