    Professional, Customized, Classic Ceremony

    Dave was the officiant for our June wedding. He was an absolute professional and we received so many compliments on the ceremony and the delivery of the sermon. We were able to customize the ceremony yo be exactly what we wanted. Dave was easy to contact and responded quickly to all questions we had. He was prompt for both the rehearsal and wedding day. Dave was able to direct our inexperienced wedding party to make it a flawless endeavor that we will remember forever. If we had to pick another officiant, we wouldn't hesitate to hire him again.

    Would Recommend

    Chris was great and easy to work with! He put together a custom ceremony for us, and we hired him as a DJ as well. The ceremony was thoughtful and funny, and he read the crowd well throughout the night- people were dancing all night long. We received a lot of compliments from guests on the ceremony, they all commented that it was heartfelt and memorable.

    He gave us a ceremony to remember, and the party vibe we wanted the rest of the day.

    His planning tools were great as well, we could easily pick & assign songs for everything across the day & choose what things we wanted to happen during the reception.

    Thank you so much, Cindy! The two of you (and your guests) made my job easy. The personalized Message to the Bride and Groom during your ceremony was a ton of fun to write - I'm so glad Iwas able

    Would hire again in a heartbeat

    Chris was amazing and helped out reception to keep running smoothly. My husband and I had many songs on the list of must plays (we like music a little too much :D). He worked with our odd requests for the night like my funky father-daughter dance or my father and husband showing off their dance moves. Would highly recommend!

    Chris was awesome! He was extremely flexible in working with us, and made the party a blast. We used him both for DJ and officiant, and he was great for both. He made sure the ceremony was beautiful and touching, even when the mosquitos and a combine tried to make it less than perfect. His grace and humor were very much appreciated.

    He was also great at keeping the reception on time and moving the way we wanted it to. He had great suggestions for how to implement ideas we had, and was really wonderful to work with. I would recommend him to anyone.

    Chris was great to work with! From the moment he sent us his package info and sample ceremonies, we were hooked. We didn't plan to write our own vows since we knew we wouldn't be able to do so without choking from emotion. But after looking over the non-religious ceremony "script," we knew this was it. Chris was amazing at cutting out the parts we didn't want--we were aiming for short, sweet, but meaningful. Aside from a spider crawling on my husband's arm (I was nonchalantly trying to swat it away), he didn't cut away from the "script." He was very good at giving us instructions before, during, and after the ceremony--albeit we didn't remember most of them because of everything else going on. Nonetheless, we were extremely happy about our ceremony. Thanks, Chris!!

    Chris was a fantastic officiant. Very easy to work with and accommodating. He will cater the program to you and will offer great input if you are not sure exactly what you want. He even ran back to grab the rings when the best man and I completely forgot them in the dressing area. He made out entire ceremony run smoothly.

    You Had Me At I Do made our wedding day perfect! The officiant service was perfect, and the personalization of the ceremony was great! We had so many compliments on how our ceremony was so personal to my husband and me. It had just the right amount of fun and seriousness. The DJ services were also great! I it was the perfect mix of music for our wedding! As for the planning part of the wedding, the online site was great for requesting songs, planning the event timeline, and making sure everything is scheduled right! I had a great experience with You Had Me At I Do!

    Chris provided us with an outstanding ceremony and helped us every step of the way. Then he kept the reception going with the music that was requested and entertained everyone through the bouquet toss and garter toss. Could not of asked for a better person on our big day.

    Chris was a wonderful choice for an officiant! He was able to provide a wedding ceremony that was exactly what I wanted, a mix of both the traditional and non-traditional! He was also very organized, helpful, and so easy to work with. He made the ceremony planning and the actual ceremony so easy so it was one less thing that I had to worry about. Overall, I am so grateful that because of him my husband and I had such a wonderful ceremony!

    We had contact You had me at I do regarding our September wedding at Miller Park. Within hours we had received a response from Reverend Chris. He supplied us with all the information we would need and an outline of possible ceremonies. After our first conversation we knew we would be asking Reverend Chris to officiate. We met with him once before the wedding as we live in Waukesha and he was located in Madison. He was very friend, professional and made us both feel very comfortable. We discussed what we wanted in our ceremony and within days he had drafted an outline and our sample ceremony. It was exactly what we had wanted. We didn't change a thing!
    Due to staffing issues Reverend Chris was unable to officiate but assured us we would be in good hands with Reverend Larry . . . He was right! Reverend Larry was wonderful!
    We had Reverend Larry officiate our wedding on a sunny day in September at Miller Park in front of all our family and friends. It was beautiful. Reverend Larry did an amazing job.
    You had me at I do went above and beyond our expectations!

    Larry was a great officiant. Cracked jokes with us at the rehearsal and before the ceremony, but clearly took his duty seriously for the actual ceremony. I liked how we could customize our ceremony to be the right level of "religiousness." He also provided the sound/music for the ceremony and I was a little worried because we hadn't talked much about what I wanted, but it went off perfectly.

    Chris was the DJ for our wedding and he was fabulous! He did a great job playing the songs that we, and our guests, requested. The dance floor wasn't empty all night, which was one of our goals for the wedding. When I was planning the wedding, he was really great at responding the same day and answering all my questions, which was very helpful. He was also the reverand for our wedding, and did a fabulous job there as well. (he owns a company called You Had Me at I Do as well, but I couldn't find it on Wedding Wire)

    Chris is amazing! We hired him as an officiant and as our DJ--he basically emceed our wedding. He is very professional, responsive, and incredibly accommodating. My background is Persian, and I wanted some Persian music during our reception. I sent him a list of songs with some directions, and he was able to find them ALL and play them just as we had discussed. He had lights for dancing and audio set up for our speeches, as well as mics and audio for my sister, who sang a song for our first dance. There were some very minor issues with static on the microphones for a bit, but it was resolved quickly. For our officiant services, we were able to customize our ceremony using pieces of his really well-written and beautiful speeches, and he offered great suggestions along the way. He is a great speaker and organizer, and we were really happy with all of it.

    We had only spoken to Chris a couple of times before the ceremony, and never actually met in person, but you would never know it to hear the ceremony he put together for us. He took the events of our lives and created a beautiful ceremony that was funny and engaging. Our friends and family even commented on how entertaining our ceremony was. My husband and I wanted something short and non religious with our own added twist, and that is exactly what we got. I couldn't have asked for a better ceremony!

    Chris was also our DJ, and he did an awesome job! The equipment was top notch and the sound was great. Because my husband and I didn't want all the traditional wedding stuff at our ceremony, Chris only charged us for party DJ service instead of a wedding reception, which saved us a lot of money.

    Chris was amazing! He was both our officiant and our DJ and kept everything running smoothly and beautifully. We loved his ceremony and personalized message. We got a lot of compliments on how personal and awesome it was. Just the right mix of fun and seriousness. He was very flexible with planning the ceremony as well.

    He also DJed wonderfully! Good mix of music and even found a song on the fly by an artist he hadn't heard of! Other than doing the special dances (first, dollar, etc.) he didn't do a lot of talking which is exactly what we wanted as I'm not a big fan of DJs that spend a lot of time trying to interact with the crowd. He was very entertaining though.

    Chris ran the rehearsal wonderfully and managed the flow of events on the day smoothly. I was able to relax before the ceremony knowing that he was making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be!

    He was a little slow to respond to some emails in the months before, but that wasn't a big deal. Would definitely recommend Chris to anyone!

    Our officiant, Dave, did a great job at working with us to make our ceremony was exactly what we wanted. He had the basic ceremony, which was nice to start from. Using the basic ceremony, my husband and I were able to take out parts we didn't want and tweak parts that were already part of the ceremony. Dave was very responsive and made everything just as we wanted it. We even made some adjustments the day before at the rehearsal to make sure that the wedding ran as smooth as possible. Overall, we were very happy with our ceremony.
