    A truly touching and personal ceremony

    Peadar was such a wonderful officiant for our special day. He truly got to know us as a couple and made the ceremony extremely personal. He always took notes during our meetings and it was reflected throughout his words during the ceremony. All of our guests commented following the ceremony how genuine the ceremony was and noted it was one most thoughtful ceremonies as it showed our true love for one another. We cannot thank Peadar enough for all that he did to make our ceremony such a special event for us -- he really made sure that it reflected and showed the love we have for one another. He stayed after the ceremony to speak with our guests, which made a lasting impression on all those that he spoke with and because of that, we cannot recommend Peadar enough! He and his wife Margarita are fantastic people and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an incredibly genuine officiant who will highlight the love you have for one another on your wedding day.

    Wonderful Officiant!

    Paedar was a wonderful officiant for our wedding ceremony, and throughout the entire planning process. First of all, he is genuinely passionate about his work. He made our marriage feel like a truly special event from the moment we first talked to him. He carried that passion and enthusiasm through the ceremony on our wedding day. He and his wife were extremely professional and easy to communicate with. They helped us plan our vows and coordinate the marriage license requirements, all while maintaining an atmosphere that focused on love and the special moment we shared together. We would 100% recommend Paedar to all future couples.

    Two of the best people we've ever met!

    Peadar created what our friends described as "one of the . most thoughtful ceremonies" they had ever seen. His faith, charm and wit make him a very special person. Margarita is equally as delightful and kept us all organized. These folks are now forever friends that we truly adore.

Rev. Peadar Dalton never ceases to amaze us! We have had the opportunity to work with him on multiple occasions via our company, Weddings on Film. We have witnessed many ceremonies throughout our 15+ years of experience of filming weddings and can confidently say that his ability to perform and lead a ceremony that is touchingly personal and a true reflection of the couple is UNPARALLELED. He spends countless of hours with the couple leading up to the wedding to prepare- he really gets to know them, their personalities and family dynamics. Never two ceremonies are the same with him. We also hired him to perform our daughter's naming ceremony and was blown away by his words- he elevates each occasion making it unforgettable and super special. He is our top choice.
