Introduction: SPECIAL NOTE IN LIGHT OF COVID-19: I understand many have had to alter wedding plans, either change date/time and/or venue. I will work with you for rescheduling as long as I have the alternative date available. I am using all necessary precautions and will do so for your and my safety in these unusual times. MY REGULAR PROFILE CONTINUES: I have done hundreds of weddings in all kinds of places, situations, and with all people. I have the broad experience to handle any kind of marriage planning situation. Couples that I marry have a strong confidence that they have had the best possible wedding experience. I am a pastor with a heart for any and all kinds of couples. I am fun to be around with a great sense of humor (in my opinion!). I am supremely professional and will provide the best possible service to meet your needs. I love the chance to meet new people and, especially with weddings, to see them at a happy time and event. For those who are open to it, I also love to share my enthusiasm for the Good News. I am intense about detail so that the service itself flows perfectly, with no surprises. You and your fiance can be sure I will be very well prepared for that day. I truly enjoy the opportunity to be creative with developing a wedding service that meets the needs and wishes of the couple. I have performed all kinds and am open to hearing your desires to enjoy your big day.

Rev. Saylor really made our day special. We were in a bind trying to find an officiant who could marry us on Labor Day, and then we changed our venue the day before the event. He was so flexible, and then also made the ceremony beautiful with his words. Thank you for being part of our wedding!

Details: Wedding • Christian • 20 guests or fewer • Help writing vows will be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

We loved having Reverend Saylor for our wedding this weekend. He was a joy to work with, responded to questions and issues within a reasonable time, and gave a humorous yet serious wedding ceremony. Upon meeting him, he was polite, professional, humorous and seemed to really want to know about us and the particulars of the wedding. The day of the wedding, he made it SO easy to enjoy the ceremony and make it so we could focus on the moment. He makes it so you don't have to worry about vow memorizing or forgetting anything. He is well worth his price, which is very reasonable. I would use him again (though I'm hoping not to have to) and definitely recommend for anyone looking for a relaxed, professional, well conducted wedding ceremony. We don’t have any pictures yet to share, unfortunately.

Rev. David Saylor was wonderful to work with for our wedding. Any questions we had, he answered right away. He presented us with a complete outline of the ceremony, and allowed us to create it exactly how we wanted, with his professional input to help in our decision making. All in all, our wedding went super smooth, even without a rehearsal (my choice).

Details: Wedding • Catholic • 51 - 100 guests • Help writing vows will be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

We had a perfect little elopement ceremony with Rev. Saylor as our minister. Great communication from start to finish and he was super patient when our timeline was a bit behind. Would highly recommend him if you’re looking for an officiant.

FAQs

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

    Performing a wedding: $200.00 Rehearsal: $50.00 Reception prayer: feed me and my wife! One preparation session by telephone included. Meetings in person for planning are $20.00 plus mileage. Mileage per IRS guidelines (about 40 cents a mile) for all services, including rehearsal. All prices may be negotiable.

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

    For weddings I begin by taking down basic name information, and use that opportunity to engage in conversation so that the couple begins to have a feel for my personality and style. After initial information gathering, I seek out from them what thoughts and plans they have for the wedding: wedding party, venue issues, invitation lists. If the couple has requested it, I would begin working with some premarital counseling inquiries to help them understand their compatibility as a couple

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

    I graduated from seminary in 1984 with a Masters of Divinity degree and a certification as a Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, one of the largest protestant denominations in the U.S. I have performed hundreds of weddings.
