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.

Stephanie D.

Wedding Officiant

My husband and I recently got married on December 7, 2019 and we had hired Rev. David as our officiant. We have an extremely crazy friend and family group, and Rev. David handled it with extreme grace. We had 5 kids running around screaming, (running into him, and hugging him as well) our bridal party (18 people) talking and being chaotic and he never once lost sight of why we were there. He was able to CONTINUOUSLY reign everyone in, and get everyone focused. He had us laughing and smiling the entire time we had with him! His organization is impeccable, and his professionalism is amazing. He was the best addition to our wedding day, and I would use him 1,000 more times!

Working with Pastor Dave was absolutely wonderful! He's an amazing person and we just loved having him officiate our wedding and forever be such a big part of our day! Right from the first meeting he makes you feel so comfortable, like you're in the presence of a good friend you haven't seen in a while. He's so, so funny at all the right moments but you can also tell how serious he takes his role of being the person to join together two people for the rest of their lives. He's super easy going and makes the whole process easy to understand and has so many great ideas to make the ceremony unique to you. We loved that we could have a knot tying ceremony involved and also loved that my husband's two sisters could do the scripture readings. We wanted a ceremony that was still religious but less formal while being held outside instead of in a church; Pastor Dave was the perfect person for that! We had a ton of guests comment afterwards how much they loved our ceremony thanks to Pastor Dave and how much fun they had conversing with him during cocktail hour and dinner. We are so blessed that we found Pastor Dave and I HIGHLY recommend him! Thank you Pastor Dave!

Wedding Officiant

Pastor Dave officiated our wedding and was absolutely wonderful! He was always timely, early to the rehearsal and the ceremony. His ceremony had the perfect mix God, love, seriousness and humor. He was happy, friendly and so easy to get along with. He made it very easy to feel comfortable. When I was saying my vows I began to tear up and couldn't speak. Pastor Dave told me to just breathe and to take my time. I was able to make it through my vows and enjoy the moment. It was the perfect ceremony, all thanks to Pastor Dave! Without him the day wouldn't have been the same. We were so blessed to have met him and had him with us!

Wedding Officiant

He was great to work with! He was very attentive to my wife and I’s needs. We put together a very quick wedding and had only about a month beforehand with no officiant. He was able to step up for us. At the wedding he did his part perfectly going over everything he needed to say plus some humorous one liners here and there. I would recommend him to anyone. Whether your wedding is big or small, he’ll put forth 100% effort and care.

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.
