Dave and Katie were very helpful throughout the whole process. My wife and myself wanted a quick and easy process, which is exactly what Dave managed to do. We are not local and therefore were not familiar with the administrative part, Dave was very responsive and always gave the right recommendation. We definitely recommend them as wedding officiant regardless the type of ceremony you are planning to have. Pierrick & HelenMar 12, 2020VerifiedOne Love Weddings by Dave's reply
Thank you very much for your Review, Helen and Pierrick! It was really a spectacular day with your beautiful dress and suit braving the cold and snow flurries. We had a wonderful time! Katie n Dave
Dr. Dave and his wife Katie was awesome. Our officiant cancelled two weeks prior to our wedding. I was in search for an officiant and came across Dr. Dave. I sent an email and he replied within minutes, where other officiant took hours and days. He’s very professional and funny. My husband and I enjoyed our ceremony.Sep 11, 2019VerifiedOne Love Weddings by Dave's reply
It was such a pleasure being at your wedding, Fatima. We really appreciated you finding us! Thank you very much!
He did an awesome job at my wedding. I would definitely recommend him as anyone’s officiant. He helped a lot in putting together the perfect ceremony. He responded back to my questions really fast. He was very punctual the day of my wedding. 👍👍👍👍Oct 21, 2019VerifiedOne Love Weddings by Dave's reply

Thank you Anne! The venue was wonderful.
We are so happy we hired Dave as our officiant for our wedding day. He is so friendly, kindhearted and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to marry us. From the beginning, he was very responsive and gave us all the details we needed to know. His ceremony script was absolutely perfect. His readings and poems were heartfelt and were wonderful highlights of our ceremony. Dave and his wife Katie are such great people to work with, they are so understanding, patient and kind. I left my written vows in Dave’s book and he kindly mailed it back to me. If you are looking for a superb wedding officiant, do not hesitate to book Dave, he is the best.Oct 22, 2019VerifiedOne Love Weddings by Dave's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$250. 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 50 years now.
