    Rev Dan was amazing!! He was so accommodating. We met him several times before the wedding and he made sure every detail was perfect and he let me do the tweaking I wanted to the ceremony without hesitation! My family loved him performing the ceremony! Highly recommended!

    Pastor Dan was able to officiate our wedding on short notice. He provided a bunch of ceremony scripts examples to look at. He arrived early to go through the ceremony. Super nice and so thankful we found him!!

    Rev. Thompson was the officiant for our wedding. Pre-wedding day, he was extremely helpful to us in making decisions about the ceremony and vows that suited us best. On our big day, he performed a lovely ceremony and even threw in some comic relief at just the right times, which I know we both appreciated (and needed!). He was always available and the utmost professional throughout the entire process. If you need an excellent wedding officiant, Pastor Dan is THE MAN!!

    I wrote to my family about what took place the day after the ceremony. Our rental car broke down and we were delayed Pastor Dan is not only understanding but he is outstanding! here is part of the email "...We arrived at his church called the Word Of Life at 9pm. He waited up for us. He invited us inside his home (he lives on the church grounds) and he must have felt our weariness, because he looked at us and said, 'lets pray together' and held our hands and we prayed. You know, we felt better right away. =) After we signed our documents, he graciously invited us to tour his 'sanctuary' and we said yes right away...the Church is beautiful - there are several buildings. They have missions all over the globe. They have many types of services to cater to the various congregations from the Spanish speaking community, the Ethiopian community, the Filipino community and countless others that I can't think of at the moment. He really made us feel welcomed and he eased our stress after the delay. He also has great sense of humor and made us laugh as we toured. We wouldn't know just how wonderful this man is if we hadn't met him at his church." Our ceremony was a magical day for us! We feel very lucky to have found him!

    Rev Dan was out during our event, but his replacement that Dan works with was FANTASTIC! Our ceremony was heart felt, sweet and so customized and special. I could not have found a more kind, special officiant! We were so happy with Dan's assistant Don Friendly that will remember our special day as one for the record books because of him specifically!

    When we first started our search for a wedding officiate, it was overwhelming, we didn't know who or what we wanted. But with a little help of Google, we found Thumbtack and with it's help, we found Rev. Dan. We received several proposals from the extreme wedding ceremony to the very religious. What made Rev. Dan standout was his laidback old fashion charm. When we told Rev. Dan that it was a surprise wedding, he said..."that sounds like fun"....we were sold. Our wedding ceremony was perfect from his surprise entrance to the scripture for our ceremony. Our family and friends loved his cute little humor and he made our young boys felt at ease standing up in front with us. We recommend Rev. Dan to any couples who are getting married for the first time, second or just renewing their vows. Thank you, Rev. Dan for being part of our happy day. Mr. & Mrs. Winslow

    Reverend Dan did a fantastic job for our wedding! He met with us before our wedding to get to know us and ensure that we were comfortable with every aspect of our service. He made suggestions and welcomed us to customize the ceremony to make it unique & special for us. He was a delight to work with, always responsive, friendly, caring, and he helped make our day extraordinary! I highly recommend Rev. Dan to officiate your service!

    Our family will be forever indebted to Pastor Dan. Guest after guest raved about the ceremony. To a person, no one could believe that he was not a life long friend (he is now)! Pastor Dan's faith, compassion and caring shone through. He is reverent, funny, warm, insightful. God has blessed Pastor Dan with an incredible gift and God blessed us with Pastor Dan. You would not be looking on Thumbtack for a Minister unless you did not have one (ours had cancelled on short notice); at NO time did we feel that Pastor Dan being with us was the result of an Internet search. We could not begin to imagine our daughter's wedding day with Pastor Dan having been with us. If you are hoping for an officiant who will be truly present with you, reach out to Pastor Dan.
