    Very personalized ceremony

    Rev Dan was so nice since wedding planning. He took the time to get to know us. His communication was pristine. He made the ceremony the most calming part of our union. He joined hispac catholic traditions from bride side, and serbian Orthodox traditions for the groom, to make sure we both felt connected with both of our wedding traditions. He went above and beyond to have a fantastic memory print out of our ceremony with our keepsake marriage certificates. His price is also amazing for the high-end level of ceremony service that he provides.

    Weddings and Ceremonies by Dan's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kindness. You were a real joy to work with. It's people like you and your family that make my job easy and pleasing. You had a beautiful setting that added to the overall Ceremony . The added traditions really gave an exciting touch.
    The music was perfect. Even the dog added a special moment.

    Pastor Dan is truly the best there is

    We cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Pastor Dan Thompson. Our wedding day simply would not have been the same without him. Pastor Dan went above and beyond to get to know us and our love story. He was so accommodating and instrumental in helping us to create our script. It was Pastor's Dan's suggestion to include a wine box ceremony (we had not heard of it) which turned out to be the most unique and special way to make our vineyard wedding personalized. We loved having Dan not only as our officiant but as a guest at our wedding and will forever be grateful to him for making our day perfect. Pastor Dan truly is the best choice and we feel so lucky to have had him marry us. Thank you so much Pastor Dan for making our wedding day so special!

    Thank you. It was my joy and delight.
    May you always be blessed . Now and forever more.
    People like you make this world a better place.

    Rev. Dan is your man

    My husband and I talked to quite a few reverends before finding Rev. Dan. He is so personable and really wants to get to know you and your story, this was very important to us. He was early to both the rehearsal and ceremony and was very flexible with our constantly changing wedding plans due to COVID. We really appreciated him being part of our special day and would recommend him to any future bride and groom that's looking for a great reverend!

    Weddings and Ceremonies by Dan's reply:

    Thank you so much. It was a joy to be a part of your life. I wish you the very best. It's people like you that makes life worthwhile.
    Even though you had to change the location everything turned out great.
