Introduction: I am a former Catholic Priest of 16 years and taught high school as well as counseled couples for marriage. I am still a teacher and providing wedding services here on Thumbtack and through Facebook as well. I have officiated for colleagues at my school and within these past years a number of weddings on Thumbtack. It is important to me to offer couples I prepare the option of designing and developing the type of ceremony they want in having a memorable celebration that you can make special and unique to yourselves. We will work together to make it as personable as possible and meaningful for all your family and guests to remember such an important occasion. In those 16 years of experience, I loved helping people prepare for marriage and assisting them in being as ready for their responsibility as possible. Marriage is an important part of our lives and giving 100% to each other is a goal we all aspire to when it comes to loving another that we wish to spend our lives with. With all of these thoughts in mind, it causes me to look forward to being a part of your life's celebration if you give me the opportunity to assist you. Thanks for listening.

Zachary A.

Wedding Officiant

Rev. Dave Coons did just a good job for our wedding. We were having a difficult time trying to find someone who was able to officiate wedding. We got to the point where we only had a month from our wedding and we were lucky to have him come to our rescue. We met up with him for a lunch and he went over how he has done weddings in the past. He is a very nice and kind man, and easy to talk too. We went through some of the work he has done and made our own personal ceremony with him. When it came to the ceremony he knocked it out of the park. Thank you so much Rev. Dave Coons!

Rev. Dave was quick to respond to any questions I had. He was very organized and had many options to choose from so that we could compile our own wedding ceremony that fit our personalities. He has a lot of experience and advice to help make your day special. He did a wonderful job and everything went seamless on our wedding day. I highly recommend Rev. Dave to help make your big day the best day ever

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer my services for $300 as a standard ceremony and up to as much as $400 just depending on the distance and the amount of time and preparation that would go in to the celebration and the decisions that need to be made. Travel time is included especially if its over 50 miles or more, so planning the wedding, conducting the rehearsal and the celebration are all taken in to account depending on your location. Most of all I enjoy officiating and try to offer my services as fair as possible and with in reason again depending on the distance.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We start by meeting with each other at a place that works for both of us. I also share attachments before the meeting of various types of services that I can offer to you. When we meet, it gives us a chance to discuss what I've sent and how things might pan out for the celebration of the ceremony. This meeting will give us a chance to discuss options and scenarios of how we see the celebration for you and your future spouse. Later at another time we meet to finalize plans and see if we are on track for the day of celebration.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My training started at St. Meinrad Seminary, ordained in 1983 with a M-Div. in Theological Studies and served as a Catholic Priest for 16 years in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, serving in various parishes and two Catholic High Schools of Roncalli and Chatard for a total of 12 years. In my 16 years as a priest I officiated many marriage celebrations with full Mass and ceremonies for mixed religions. I've always enjoyed working with couples to help them understand each other better and be as prepared as they can be for the day they join together as one.
