Jennifer · Married on 08/04/2012
When we first started planning our wedding, I never wanted to lose sight of the importance of the ceremony itself...it's easy to get caught up in other details, but the moment where vows are exchanged is the most meaningful and profound part of the day. I wanted to find an officiant who could really make that moment memorable. I wanted someone who was professional with a warm, even humorous personality…someone who reflected us as a couple We met with him over coffee and I just loved his spirit…very charming, serene and knowledgeable. He was also able to meet with us for the rehearsal and on the day of, he was early so he could take in his surroundings and meet with all of the other parties involved. Chaplain Dale’s book of vows was great to work from…I stressed about writing out our ceremony, but as soon as I opened his pamphlet, everything I could have wanted spoken at our ceremony was there…it made the process very straightforward and I really enjoyed customizing it just for us. Our ceremony was perfect under Chaplain Dale’s guidance…his way of speaking has a mix of joviality, warmth and sincerity to it…he had our guest enraptured and made everyone feel involved, like he was telling a story. Many friends and family came up to us afterwards and commented on how great he was. We are so grateful that we had Chaplain Dale as our officiant! We couldn’t imagine our day with anyone else.Sent on 08/28/2012

Angelina · Married on 07/07/2012
Dale was great! He helped us from the beginning on planning our wedding ceremony. He took something that we thought would take a lot of time and planning and made it easy for us with his booklet. He asked the right questions and customized our ceremony to the two of us. Thank you Dale we would definitely refer you to everyone that may need your services.Sent on 07/17/2012
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Thanks for the comment. The pleasure was mine to work with a delightful and well thought-out couple.
Nicole · Married on 06/03/2012
Chaplain Dale is experienced and a true professional. He put us (a nervous bride and groom) at ease. We appreciated his responsiveness to email and the time he took to sit down with us and help us figure out what to do for our ceremony. We had no clue how the ceremony should go but Dale provides tools to use to make it meaningful and special without getting to complicated. We would highly recommend Chaplain Dale!Sent on 06/13/2012

Crystal · Married on 05/22/2012
Dale was great, from the first moment we met him. He listened to us, and created a ceremony that was uniquely ours. He has a warm, easy-going demeanor that blended so well with our family and friends. We only wish he would have been able to stay for the reception. He was perfect.Sent on 05/24/2012
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Thanks, Crystal and Greg. It was a pleasure to work with you, all the way from initial phone calls and e-mails, to our meeting at Starbucks to the finished product. Best to you both; you're a special couple!
Lisa · Married on 03/04/2012
Dale is wonderful!! We had a small ceremony by the lighthouse where my husband proposed and Dale made it very personal and tailored just to fit our family. He even included some special touches about the lighthouse and braved the chilly weather and wind just so we could have the ceremony in the very spot we were engaged. Dale my family and I are so grateful to you for everything!!Sent on 03/20/2012
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:It was chilly, but there was nothing but warmth with this wonderful couple. Thanks for the comments. It was a delight to work the lighthouse and this special place into your ceremony.

Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Thanks for the kind comments. It was great to work with you and to make it all come together. Thanks for the opportunity!
Shawn · Married on 12/26/2011
Chaplain Dale was fantastic. From the initial e-mail that we sent asking if the day/time was available to the moment we said "I do" he was great, we even had a venue change just a couple days beforehand. Although it was a fairly short notice wedding so we didn't have any prior planning appointments with Dale the guests would have never known. Dale arrived early enough to complete all the paperwork, find out our wishes for the ceremony and do a brief walkthough beforehand.Sent on 12/27/2011
We would highly recommend Chaplain Dale to officiate at a friend or family members ceremony and the price can't be beat.
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Shawn and Lory were a delight to work with for this small and special ceremony in Renton. It was fun to put something together, even at short notice, that was a good match for this dear couple and their wonderful family members.
christina · Married on 08/25/2011
Chaplain Dale is wonderful! I not only changed my wedding date a few times, but eloped a year prior to my "real" wedding date and he was the officiant for both the secret wedding and large family and friends wedding. I only gave him a few days notice for the secret wedding and he not only lead a beautiful ceremony, Chaplin Dale made it very special. He is genuinely interested in knowing the couple and making your day as memorable as it should be. He is easily to talk to, very responsive and very reliable. My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better officiant :)Sent on 08/30/2011

Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:How delightful, Christina and Todd, to be part of this day. I love it when -- even with changes -- we can make a day and a ceremony something special. Best to you both!
Elizabeth · Married on 07/30/2011
Chaplain Dale was the perfect officiant for our wedding. He was extremely easy to work with, and he responded so quickly to any questions we had before the day. Our wedding had to start a little later than we'd planned, and Dale was so kind about having to wait for us to get our act together! He read our vows just beautifully and added a lot of warmth to the event. And our marriage certificate was waiting for us when we came back from our honeymoon. We loved our ceremony and highly recommend him.Sent on 09/05/2011
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Thanks, Elizabeth and Justin, for the kind comments. This was a fun wedding and I'm happy you invited me to be a part!
Cassi · Married on 05/20/2011
I am a very busy person, even when I'm not a bride! So Dale's flexibility and willingness to cooresponde all through emails was a huge plus for me. My first meeting with him was the day of my wedding and I couldn't have been happier with the service he provided, his friendly personality and level of professionalism that left me thinking he should be charging more! He was thoughtful, thorough and continued to answer my last minute questions and was always happy to oblige my last minute changes! He is a great man, and if weddings were something I did often, I would pick him everytime. I almost wish I could pick him for other things just so I know that it would get done and I would be more than happy about the results. He made our wedding day a memorable one and treated our guests with care, laughter and he was just a joy to be around! Do yourself a favor brides....pick Dale to be your officiant!Sent on 06/01/2011
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Thanks for the glowing review. Taking care of couples on their special day is so rewarding for me, but it's better still for me to know that I've taken some of the anxiety out of that special day.
Kathy · Married on 04/30/2011
Dale was a wonderful part of a perfect day. He offciated at our wedding on April 30, 2011. You will find him to be a friendly, caring person and responsive to any questions you may have. Our wedding was performed in a home, and even though it was a small gathering, it had the feel of an intimate, religious ceremony. He has the ability to put everyone at ease. I am sure that anyone who has Dale as a part of their marriage ceremony, will have wonderful words and memories to cherish. Thank you, Dale, for being a part of our special day.Sent on 05/01/2011

Steve and Linda · Married on 02/18/2011
We highly recommend Chaplain Dale Amundsen as officiant for weddings! He is a warm, wonderful man who readily accomodated our every request. We especially liked that he is an ordained minister so that we were able to have a religious service that included our own personal touches. Dale had officiated ten years ago at Linda's son's memorial service so we felt he was the perfect person to help us celebrate our very happy day. And he was!Sent on 03/07/2011
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Thanks for the kind words, Linda and Steve. I was so glad that you two found each other and that you called me to do the honors. God bless you both with a wonderful future!

Dale is an amazing wedding officiant. You will truly love working with Dale. My husband Eddy and I got married August 26, 2007 and we couldn’t have asked for a better officiant. Dale took the time to get to know us as a couple and he made us feel really special on our big day. Dale provided the best ceremony and everybody absolutely loved it. He made sure the ceremony was personal and catered to our needs. Dale is a people person; he is kind and warm at heart.

Brenda · Married on 04/02/2005
Everyone told me I wouldn't remember what was said during my wedding. With Dale, that was not the case. He spoke to us from the heart and you could tell he was really happy to be joining my husband and I in marriage. I attended another wedding Dale did and was just as impressed with the amount of joy that goes into his officiating duties. He's the best!Sent on 03/23/2011
Chaplain Dale Weddings's reply:Thanks for the review, Brenda. Yes, that was a fun day to conduct your wedding ceremony. I'm glad it has gone down in your memories as a joyous experience. The very best to you both!
