Choose Chaplain Dale, he's awesome
We chose to hire Chaplain Dale after reading reviews and meeting with him in person about 9 months before our wedding. We did not live locally, but Dale made it easy to meet up and discuss everything prior to us deciding on him as our officiant. He is very communicative and responds quickly to texts/emails. He has a very calm attitude and we never felt stressed making any decisions as far as the ceremony process went, thanks to Dale's Ceremony Booklet Guide. He accomadated last minute changes to the ceremony with ease. His travel fee is very reasonable. He showed up on time for the rehearsal and wedding, was friendly and professional through and through. He did a great job with our ceremony and we are extremely happy we decided to go with Chaplain Dale. He is AWESOME! Seriously, don't think twice, he will do a great job.Sent on 06/21/2019

Chaplain Dale was so kind and accommodating. He sends everything that you need with many different options for vows/inclusions in your wedding. My husband and I are not specifically religious, and Dale allowed us to cater the vows to what we wanted. Our guests are still talking about our wedding, how funny Dale was, and how the ceremony was so touching. Thank you, Dale, for making our day so special and memorable!Sent on 09/17/2018
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Sweet. Thanks Amy. You and Tyler were fun to work with and your wedding was a joy to be involved with. Wishing you every happiness!

Chaplain Dale performed our ceremony and it was perfect! We all (including my folks and my now husband’s folks) enjoyed his humor, his professionalism and his straight forward communication. We wouldn’t have had it any other way! Thank you, Chaplain Dale!Sent on 08/13/2018
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Thanks Kathryn, and thanks to you and Tim for a special day/time/place. Great working with you!

WOW! What a great day. Chaplain Dale was super nice, professional and a breeze to work with. I really appreciate his demeanor and friendliness toward my family and friends. He fit in nicely and handled the paperwork seamlessly on such a hectic occasion. The prep work before hand was clear and inspiring and offered us many options for readings, blessings and vows. We could not be happier. He handled the ceremony flawlessly even when our dog brought the rings to the groom! It was perfect! Thank you so much.Sent on 08/18/2018
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Thanks to you and Terry for a wonderful experience with your friends and family for a terrific time celebrating your vows. You have a great story and you made my day. Oh, and that is one well-heeled dog!
Whitney · Married on 08/08/2018
We couldn't have been happier with Dale as our officiant. He made the entire process from booking, to planning, all the way to the actual ceremony SO EASY. He was so accommodating and caring throughout the whole process. He was professional and fun, and made our ceremony the absolute best it could have been. He is a great speaker and everything flowed perfectly. He is also affordable.Sent on 09/11/2018
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Wow, thanks Whitney. You and Korban were an ideal couple with whom to work. It was a personal joy, and I am so blessed by your review. Thanks!

Bethany · Married on 07/28/2018
We chose not to get married in a church, so Chaplain Dale was the obvious choice. He was so nice, and put together a beautiful ceremony. I would highly recommend him!Sent on 08/15/2018
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Thanks to YOU, Bethany and Sean. It was fun to work with you (my second wedding in your extended family!) and in a beautiful location there at Stilly Brook. I appreciate the kind words and nice review. Wishing you every happiness!
Brooke · Married on 07/21/2018
Dale was very professional and timely; he was open to new ideas but also had a book of choices for ceremony ideas for us to choose from. He can make a ceremony more religious or not much. We very much enjoyed Dale as our officiant!Sent on 08/15/2018
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Makes my day. Thanks to you, Brooke and Chris, for a perfect combination of a beautiful day, place, other vendors and wedding party. I appreciate the kind review.

Caitlin · Married on 07/01/2018
Chaplin Dale is great! He is so amazing at making the ceremony exactly how you want it, down to specific words. Planning from out of town was difficult but Dale helped make the officiant portion a breeze! He made us feel so comfortable during our ceremony, there really wasn’t anything more we could have asked for!Sent on 08/13/2018

Chaplain Dale was amazing! He was super flexible and easy to work with. Dale took the stress out of writing our own vows. He had great ideas about how to make our ceremony unique and tailored to us. The process was easy and fun. I appreciated Dale’s friendliness and professionalism. We felt very confident having him officiate our wedding. Everything went perfectly. Thanks again, Dale!Sent on 08/14/2018

Mark · Married on 05/12/2018
Dale was - IS - AMAZING! I was 'awarding' my husband a medal from Star Wars and wasn't sure how to do it, Dale had the perfect solution! He was extremely responsive, friendly, thoughtful, and just all around fantastic. From the first time we met him, we knew he would be perfect to officiate our wedding. We can't say enough about how wonderful he was and how he helped to make our dream wedding perfect!Sent on 08/14/2018
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Tanya and Mark, that was about a perfect day working with both of you and your wedding party. Thanks for the great review!
Samantha · Married on 10/15/2017
Dale did not disappoint. He was incredibly quick to reply- he overnighted a preliminary ceremony to us before our first meet-up, & he permitted us to make as many changes as we liked to really make our ceremony uniquely ours.Sent on 10/24/2017
He put our families & friends at ease during our rehearsal & he brought a dose of joy & calm to our chaotic wedding day. My husband & I felt incredibly at ease with Dale.
He offers the gracious gift (of a discount) to couples of whom one or both individuals are law enforcement officials; his fees for both officiating & for travel are the most reasonable I have found in all of western Washington.
Dale maintains a long list of vendor contacts, & his wife runs a wedding décor rental shop- you'll find the essentials along with an assortment of timeless pieces to create a beautiful event. An officiant & a rentals for your special day- you can check two vendors off your list & be certain you won't be disappointed.
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Samantha and Josh, Thanks hugely for the kind review. You two, too, were a treat to work with. Great location, creative planning and the ceremony was a perfect reflection of you both. Thanks, too, for the nice words about SBL Rentals. Wishing you both every blessing and happiness! /dale
Cassandra · Married on 09/01/2017
From the beginning Dale was a pleasure to work with! Not only was his responsiveness the quickest of any of our vendors, but he is so genuine and caring in all aspects. He went above and beyond what we asked for and our ceremony went better than we ever could've imagined. We would highly recommend Dale to anyone we know!Sent on 09/10/2017
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Thanks, Cassandra and Ryan. You two were the greatest to work with and I'm thrilled it all came together so nicely. I appreciate your sweet review!

Dale did a wonderful job as our officiant! He was incredibly easy to work with and very responsive to any questions we had. His wealth of experience truly shows and we worked with him to create a fantastic custom ceremony. We had family visiting from Colombia who didn't speak English, and Dale was more than willing to weave in some bilingual aspects to the ceremony, going as far as to learn a couple lines of Spanish himself! We received many compliments from our guests on the ceremony and Dale’s role in it!Sent on 10/01/2017
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:That was truly a fun experience for me, too. Your rehearsal, the wedding, the people and your other vendors were terrific to work with. Thanks to you both for the opportunity, and for the kind words. I'm working on some Spanish, a phrase or two at a time!
Kelly · Married on 08/11/2017
Dale is absolutely amazing!!! He officiated our wedding and it was more perfect than we could have imagined! He gave us suggestions for what he could say during the ceremony and we were able to mold it just the way we wanted it. He is so kind and made us feel so comfortable for our special day. I got so many compliments from friends and family saying how great they thought he did and how they loved the ceremony!! Highly recommend Dale!!Sent on 09/05/2017
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Thanks Kelly and Jimmy. Your review has made my day! Your wedding made for an ideal day for me as well. Great couple, great people, great family and a beautiful place. Loved working with you!
Teresa · Married on 07/29/2017
Chaplain Dale was the perfect addition to our ceremony! I initially hesitated to hire someone I didn't know to officiate the ceremony, but I'm so glad I did. He was a consummate professional, and we received many, many compliments on him and our ceremony from our guests. Chaplain Dale made planning as easy as we wanted, with suggestions for every component, but was also entirely open to our contributions. Throughout the planning process, Dale was available to quickly answer questions. The meeting before the wedding made us feel at ease with the plan for the ceremony, and with Dale attending the rehearsal, we had no doubt our ceremony would proceed without a hitch. During the event, Dale was composed and clearly in his element, having done hundreds of ceremonies, however, none of what he said came off as scripted or rehearsed.Sent on 09/14/2017
He handled all the paperwork promptly, and even paid for a pair of certified copies of the license.
Thank you, Dale!!
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Wow! Thanks Teresa. I appreciate the great review and I thank you, again, for the opportunity to work with you both on a wonderful wedding. Thanks, and the best of everything!
Chelsey · Married on 07/23/2017
Dale was wonderful and made our special wedding day feel even more important and sacred. Everyone from my wedding said Dale was well spoken and kind with his words. I would recommend Dale to any engaged couple looking for someone trustworthy to marry them. Everyone loved him!Sent on 07/28/2017
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Chelsey and Sam, Thanks for the kind words. That was a fun day and, believe me, a fun couple like you guys make my job easy. God bless you bunches.

Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Deana, your review is very appreciated. Thanks for the opportunity to have worked with your "A-Team" of vendors. You and John are a great couple and I'm honored to have worked with you. God bless!
Gabby · Married on 07/21/2017
DALE is the best Officiant! My wedding was perfect because of him. Dale worked very closely with my husband and I to create the best ceremony and helped us write one to best reflect us as a couple. We did not want a cookie cutter ceremony, but one that is unique and represents our personalities. My husband and I decided to write our own Vows and Dale even met with us on multiple occasions to listen and give his opinion. If anyone in the PNW is looking for an amazing Officiant, DALE is the one. Dale has the biggest heart and made my day so special. If I could give him 10 stars I would.Sent on 08/08/2017
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Thank you, Gabby! This is what I love about what I do. Working with creative couples to craft the ceremony that is best for them. Heartfelt hugs and thanks for a great review!
