    Don was an excellent officiant for my wedding. He took the time to figure out what I was looking for in a ceremony and as a result, my wedding ceremony was beautiful. I would highly recommend him.

    Don surpassed all of our expectations in hiring an officiant to do our wedding ceremony. Extremely responsive, he took the time to get to know us and supported us in various calls in creating a super custom ceremony that was perfectly 'us.' We received high praise from guests for the job that Don did and the relaxed and authentic vibe he gave us. He was on top of everything, very professional, and we just received our marriage license. Thank you Don for a memorable and special day!

    Reverend Don Goodrum was absolutely amazing. He is a true servant of God, and performed an amazing and intimate beach wedding ceremony for me and my now husband. Reverend Goodrum used scripture, and orchestrated a wedding ceremony for us which included a sand ceremony, rings, and exchange of vows. God is good, and I thank the Lord for Reverend Goodrum.

    I can’t say enough wonderful things about Don! He was phenomenal! I think just about everyone who attended our wedding commented on how wonderful the officiant was! Don has the gift of talk, is natural, entertaining, and it is obvious that he truly loves what he does. He made our wedding ceremony so very special!

    Don is fabulous. He is an exceptional public speaker, highly organized, professional and personable. He did a wonderful job at personalizing our ceremony for us and several guests commented on how fabulous he was! Most importantly (in our case) he was very flexible. Our beautiful beach wedding got crashed by Hurricane Nate. Fortunately, Don was more than willing to adapt to whatever changes the weather brought us. Because our wedding was scheduled to take place on an island, there was a lot of concern that the bridges to the island would close the day before our ceremony and Don would not be able to reach us (which means... no ceremony). Don, THANKFULLY, came to the island the night before and stayed in a hotel JUST to make sure he was on the island before the bridges closed so he could still complete our ceremony. I cannot say enough good things about him. Do yourself a favor, stop searching for officiants and book Don. He's wonderful!

    We are so happy to have had Rev Don as our officiant! He was so polite, organized, and easy going. Many of our guest thought he was our preacher from home and that we had known him for years from the way he connected to us during the ceremony. He honestly deserves more than 5 stars.

    What an amazing experience Rev Don provided for us! He was extremely responsive to both email and phone calls leading up to our wedding and our rehearsal was helpful and calming. Our ceremony was both heartfelt and clear, many of our guests commented on his presence and thoughtfulness. I hope one day he will be available for a vow renewal as I'd do it all over again the same way.

    We had a beach wedding and had last minute request for Don to perform a religious ceremony for us.
    We really appreciate the attention and the amount of time that Don has put into preparation to the event.
    Don has printed out our vows and had two conference calls with us despite the fact that we inquired about the services just 3 days prior to our event.
    If you are looking for an officiant who will perform a religious ceremony and will blend elements of traditional and modern ceremony in one beautiful event Weddings as you wish is a great choice for you!
    Thank you very much for a beautiful event!

    Don was brave to join the chaos of planning a wedding in two weeks...When we first talked about about my special day, he understood that I didn't have all the details and his patience with it did not go unnoticed. Once my plans did start falling into place, we had amazing communication even when we were both busy with work, and when I was trying to get all the last minute bridal stuff done! He is well organized and very responsive. Don you were such a pleasure to work with and I'm thankful for a beautiful ceremony that I will remember forever!

    It was a great experience working with Don. He was always responsive, very organized, and flexible to our needs. He was able to craft a ceremony exactly how we wanted. Don can also give great ideas if you are unsure how to plan your ceremony. I would recommend Don to anyone. Everyone at the reception came and asked us "Who was your officiant? He was awesome!!! He was so good."

I will without a doubt recommend don to anyone getting married, he was responsive and made everything so easy during the hectic time of planning a wedding ! He is great:)

    Don was awesome. He was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted to elope on the beach in Fort Walton. We went over everything and he was very thorough. It was a pleasure working with Don and I highly recommend him as an officiant to anyone from eloping to a large wedding!

    We couldn’t have been happier with Don!

    Don was kind, funny, and worked with our schedules. There are so many meetings with so many vendors it was easy to wonder if everyone was going to do exactly what we were hoping for. Don blew us away! It was as if he’d known us personally, as a friend. He spoke about us on our wedding day with the kind of warmth a family member would. Not only did he do everything we had agreed on, but our ceremony was so special and wonderful! Even our guests complimented him!

    I would highly reccomend Mr. Don Goodrum to anyone. What he brought to our wedding experience made it so much more meaningful. Thanks Don you are very warm, easy to work with, helped us through the process in a way that took so much off of us, and the presentation turned out perfect.

    Don was a pleasure to work with. As our officiant, he made us very much at ease with the vows we wrote and helped us accomplish the simplicity we desired for our ceremony. Since we live in another state, he navigated us through the legal process and followed up afterwards to ensure we could contact him for any assistance if need be. Very happy bride.
