Oh my gosh! This review is so so overdue and I definitely should have done it a lot sooner! First and foremost, Lee and I could never thank Don Goodrum enough for being a part of our wedding! Initially, I was so nervous choosing an officiant because exchanging vows is such a personal moment. I had absolutely no idea who to ask so my coordinator suggested Don for us. A few weeks before our wedding, we spoke to Don over the phone and by the time we hung up, both Lee and I had a smile on our face! Don took us step by step through the process, sent us ideas on vows we could exchange, gave us time to write our own personal vows, helped us perfect them, and even brought copies on our wedding day so I never had to worry about bringing a copy of the vows with me. But the best part of it all, he made sure that the ceremony was special for us and spoke as if he had known us for years! There was not a dry eye in the crowd and we even got compliments afterwards how it was the BEST ceremony they had ever been to! Seriously, I could never have imagined it to be more perfect! Don.... thank you, thank you, thank to the moon and back!Sent on 12/23/2014

So wonderful! And a lifesaver!
We needed an officiant two days before the wedding! Our other one fell through unexpectedly. Don answers my email right away on such short notice and was so helpful and called to talk about what we wanted and talked about the logistics on the beach/sunset/code enforcement/etc. The day of we had to do the ceremony at the house because of our fussy baby and it was still great!Sent on 05/18/2019

Wonderful choice for our special day!
Don was funny, engaging, organized, and easy to work with. His quick responses to questions and inquiry were very much appreciated. The service was exactly as we envisioned, and we really enjoyed our time spent with him! We had many compliments from our guests, who couldn't believe that we had found him online. I would wholeheartedly recommend him and his services to anyone. Thanks for being a big part of our favorite day!Sent on 05/20/2019
Always sweet and a little bit funny! Don makes everybody feel right at home.
