Absolutely amazing!

We found Dave on Wedding Wire and could not have asked for anyone better. He took care of EVERYTHING for us and was so helpful with the ceremony. We had no idea what we were doing and he helped us the entire way through. He was super easy to get ahold of and so kind. Could not recommend enough!

So Happy We Had Rev. Dave!

Dave Coons was fantastic from beginning to end. He is professional, knowledgeable, kind, easy to talk to, and genuine. We met with a couple officiants, because we wanted the right fit for our wedding day. We didn't want just anyone. After meeting Dave, we knew immediately that he was one we wanted to marry us. We could tell he truly loved what he does and he was so personable from the very first meeting. He was more than helpful in creating our ceremony and he was very responsive throughout the entire process. He was able to adapt quickly during our ceremony when the audio went out. You wouldn't have even noticed if you were paying attention to him. Our families loved meeting him and he is someone we hope to keep in touch with over the years. We recommend Rev. Dave Coons (Weddings by Design) without a doubt!

David Coons

Born and raised in Jeffersonville, Indiana. Became a Catholic Priest in 1983 for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis and served 16 years until resigning in 1999. Never fully broke with the church, so the State of Indiana still recognizes the ordination of Rev. Coons. Began teaching at New Castle High School in 1978 and Roncalli in 1985-1989 Chatard High School 1991-1999. Franklin Central High School from 2001-2021 and retiring from education this year 2021. Have performed 100's of weddings since 1983, so my experience is vast and filled with much experience. Hope to be of service to you and your future spouse.
