    The best wedding officiant

    I can not express how thankful Steven and I are for the absolutely amazing ceremony Rev Don officiated. He is so easy to work with, quick to respond, flexible, knowledgeable, professional, comforting, and all around helpful. I was extremely nervous to stand in front of everyone during my ceremony but Rev Don made my husband and I feel so comfortable. His ceremony was beautiful and felt so true to our relationship. Our parents and guests raved about how incredible the ceremony was. He guided everyone flawlessly through the few steps we had to follow and we already received our marriage license after returning from our honeymoon.

    Best officiant!

    Don was awesome to work with! He was so helpful throughout the entire process! He was quick to respond to messages and a clear, efficient communicator.
    He provided a wonderful marriage counseling session prior to our wedding and took the time to get to know us as a couple.

    On wedding day, his ceremony was touching and personal to my husband and I. Many of our guests complemented the ceremony and the words spoken over our marriage!
