Me and my husband had a wonderful time working with Dave and his wife! They were on time, made things comfortable, and allowed us to customize everything we wanted to. I couldn’t imagine being married by anyone else! Highly recommend.Nov 21, 2018Verified
It was absolutely wonderfully amazing. Dave and his wife was so pleasant and friendly. While I was being a nervous reck he was calming me down. Thank you to Dave and his wife. I would definitely recommend them to someone else.Sep 13, 2018VerifiedOne Love Weddings by Dave's reply

The Dr. Is fantastic. I love his energy and his spirit. Great ceremony. I'm extremely happy that the Dr. Was apart of my special day. Do not look any further. He is the one.Aug 22, 2018VerifiedOne Love Weddings by Dave's reply
It was an honor to be a part of your ceremony, Tisha. Wishing both of you a wonderful, long, happy, and joyous marriage. Thank you for your Review!
Dave & Katie did a great job making our day extra special! They are extremely responsive while helping you plan your day and they even helped me make my plans with less than a weeks notice! Dave made our ceremony a day we will cherish forever!Apr 1, 2018Verified
It was a pleasure working with Dave. My husband and I wanted a short and sweet ceremony and Dave didnt disappoint. I did not provide any input or make any changes to the ceremony or vows that Dave created and it was perfect. I cant thank him enough!Mar 20, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$295. This amount includes officiating the ceremony and varies with ~ traveling to location, developing the ceremony and vows, and presence at rehearsal. My wife, Katie, lends a hand in all of these. She can also give any pre-ceremony help to the bride's party if desired.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?You request a quote on Thumbtack for your wedding. I send you a quote. From this, you look at my quote, profile, web site, and reviews. Then you may message me or call me. We have a short talk. I get the basic information about your wedding ~ names, email, phone number, date, time, and venue. You hire me. I send you a contract. This gives you more details about what's included in your wedding package and each of our responsibilities. With all the preliminaries done, I begin to go over details for the wedding. Often I help with vows. These conversations help me put initial ideas together for the ceremony. I send you an initial ceremony you can add, subtract, or substitute just about anything. We go over ceremony and anything special you want me to say. I don't stop until you're completely ecstatic about your ceremony. Couple acquires marriage license. Then, we wait for the day. We arrive half an hour early; so, there are no worries. A chosen person hands me an envelope with the marriage license and my fee. Go over any last minute changes in the ceremony, perform the personalized ceremony on time, sign the certificate, and present the couple with their copy of their marriage license. I then mail the township's copy of the marriage certificate. Job well done. Thank you for your trust. Hopefully, you will leave me a stellar review on Thumbtack.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have had a lot of training with all aspects of giving presentations to small and large groups. And of course, I've given presentations for some 40 years now.
