    Wonderful Officiant
    Father Daniel did an excellent job; we really appreciated the modern Catholicism. He was flexible and helped us feel at ease in laying out our ceremony.

    Just truly amazing!
    Everything was so perfect! Rev. Daniel is amazing! He was patient during the ceremony when mine and my husbands son was running around and acting up. Since there was a distance from where we lived and where we live he was very good about keeping up on e-mails and we even got to Skype! We couldn't have asked for anyone better! In about 5 years I know that we are wanting Rev. Daniel to do our vow renewal! :)

    Rev. Daniel was great! Our wedding officiant cancelled on us two weeks before the wedding. But I'm so glad we found Rev. Daniel. I'm absolutely sure the wedding turned out far better than if we had used our original officiant. He really took charge and added an element of calm to the wedding. He was very experienced and had a good idea of how things would look and should look. He was great to work with and I highly recommend him to anyone!

    Rev. Daniel was amazing, with all the things going on he kept in touch even when I forgot to. He was the calm in the middle of my storm, he was so nice, polite, professional, and accommodating. I really appreciate every thing he did to make my wedding everything I ever wanted. Bonus** he handled my crazy family like a pro and kept a smile on his face ;-) thanks again.

    Daniel is fantastic! He worked with us to design a ceremony that was tailored for our needs. I may be a bit biased, but I think it was the best wedding ceremony I've ever heard! I would highly recommend Daniel to anyone!

    Rev. Daniel did a great job at our wedding. He personalized a ceremony just for us. The skies started to open up Rain on us halfway through our ceremony so he was able to speed things up while still including all the important stuff. He also made the rain more of a comical topic than a burden. It was amazing! Thank you so much Rev.Daniel!!

    Father Daniel was wonderful. He opened his home to us provided a chapel and a cake! This was all to accommodate our need. We had a real wedding even though it looked like we couldn't have a real wedding. Thank you so much father Daniel. You rock! Andrea and Moises

    Daniel was/is wonderful. I jokingly asked Daniel via facebook if he would like to travel with us to Iowa to officiate our legal marriage. He immediately jumped at the opportunity and our plans began to form to be legally wed. Daniel talked with both Tom and I to find out our wishes. He wrote a beautiful ceremony that had us both teary-eyed and captured our feelings perfectly. He incorporated our first wedding from 2006 in Indiana as well as sentiments about family, friends, our past 8 years, and the many more happily-ever-afters to come. Our actual ceremony was a little haphazardly planned since we had to travel to a State we had never visited before. Daniel took it all in stride. He came with us to dinner the night before as well as sight-seeing around the city of Dubuque before finally landing at a picturesque spot to have the ceremony. The icing on the cake was going to the court house after the ceremony and receiving our marriage certificate the same day. Thanks Daniel. We are so glad to have had you as our officiant and even more happy to call you and your family 'friends'.

    I can't say enough positive things about Fr Daniel. I was a little nervous finding someone on the internet at first, but Sam and I were completely satisfied with our wedding ceremony. He gave us several choices of the type of cermony we could have and let us have input over the entire service. Fr Daniel kept in contact with me each week before our wedding and even on our wedding day, he sent a little note to me letting me know he was on his way. He arrived early, which was very comforting and was very cordial to our friends and family. I would choose Fr Daniel again and recommend him to anyone. We were very impressed with him, his professionalism and overall service. We can't thank you enough Fr Daniel! Brenda & Sam Clemons Married on 10/13/2013

    Father Daniel!!! I have nothing but positive and overwhelming love to share. From the very start I felt very comfortable and connected to Father Daniel. We mostly corresponded via email, but Father Daniel has a way of making you feel as though we were face to face. Anthony and I had been through a lot in our lifetime, as we're not spring chicks. I wanted our ceremony to be based on our travels and experiences in life. Although we knew what vows we wanted, we weren't sure how to go about the rest. Father Daniel took the time to have a conversation with me so I could give him the history and travels of ours lives apart and together. We wanted both, a traditional and untraditional wedding ceremony. A couple days later Father Daniel sent me a draft of the ceremony and prayer he thought would capture everything we spoke about. Most exciting yet. He offered to have communion after the ceremony. With everything racing through my mind the thought never occurred to me. I was so glad he made the offer. Not only did it make the ceremony more of a blessed union with family and God, but it felt as though our home became sacred ground. HE NAILED IT!!!! Our plans were to be married at our home. Hoping to have it take place outside with the beautiful country setting. Of course it rained. We moved to plan B and had the ceremony in our house. Although cramped but cozy, everything went perfectly. Father Daniel was so giving and patient. He embraced the moment with such love and thoughtfulness. He instantly became a part of our family. We insisted on him being in our family portraits. After Father Daniel left, all we did was talk about how wonderful he is... This is a day we will cherish for all eternity. Thank you Father Daniel for coming into our lives. We love you and thank you! With all our heartfelt love, peace be with you, The Wiseman Family

    Father Daniel was a true blessing. Two weeks before our wedding our friend who was supposed to marry us told us he had not yet taken the steps to become ordained. In a panic we started looking for someone to marry us. We eventually found Father Daniel and were amazed that he would be willing to work with us on such short notice. He was very helpful with ceremony reading ideas and had no problem with us wanting to use our own creation. Even though we waited until the last minute to decide the reading we wanted to have at our ceremony Father Daniel pulled it off perfectly. Not once did he forget a single word! He also met with us for our rehearsal dinner so that we could practice for the big day. Father Daniel has an amazing personality and is a true joy to work with. We are so glad that we found him and are actually grateful that our previous plan had not worked out. We thank you so much for sharing our big day with us Father Daniels! We would recommend you to anyone. The computer would not allow me to give you more than 5 stars, but we would have given you a hundred none the less! Thank you again!

    What a fantastic day my Son's Wedding was. Fr Daniel was very patient with us as everything ran at least half an hour late. He was very friendly and courteous and would highly recommend him for any wedding ceremony. Such a lovely person. Thank you Fr Daniel :)

    Father Daniel was a blessing for us. We had one of our high school social studies teachers planned to marry us. We found days before our wedding that his license was no longer valid.....we were freaking out!!!! We called around to people who may know people and after an hour a neighbor prayed for us and in the meantime we decided to search the internet for an ordained minister in the Bloomington area and there he was!!!! A neighbor of ours called because I (wifee) was in a panic and couldn't hear another 'no.' Father Daniel was on board right away and in the midst of craziness two days later (and only speaking over the phone and email) he performed our wedding ceremony outdoors and was pleasant and calm...always a presence of peace even when things were chaotic all around.

    It was truly an honor to celebrate your special day! I am glad I was able to meet your needs. Many blessings upon your marriage and life journey!

  • Serenne P. Aug 11, 2013
    Father Kostakis performed our wedding ceremony this past month. He did a custom liturgy and did a wonderful job! He was very professional and confident and he personally made us up a marriage certificate that we could frame. He met with us before the wedding to discuss our ceremony with us and worked with the ceremony that we wanted to make it best fit us and our personalities. After the ceremony, numerous people came up to both me and Father Kostakis to tell us how beautiful the ceremony was and what an outstanding job he did. Also, around the time of our wedding, we were having some family issues and Father Kostakis stood by us and helped us through our difficult situation. We could not have asked for anyone better!

    Thank you Serenne & Luke! The day was so very special because of the love that radiated from you both during the ceremony. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it!
