You will read through them and find the one you like best. Then feel free to cut and paste, add and subtract whatever you want, so that the ceremony is what you really want; ie. Readings and Poems, Scripture, Unity Candle, Sand Ceremony, Special Vows, Ring Ceremony, Blessings, Things I Love About You, etc. This is your opportunity to add that special something that you always dreamed would be in your special wedding day!
It is my goal to give you a wedding ceremony that is tailor made and totally customized just for the two of you.
Once you have worked through it together, and you feel great about it, you will email it back to me, and I will make sure it has everything in it that is necessary.
We will then meet one more time about two weeks prior to your wedding to finalize the ceremony and make sure everything is exactly how you want it to be.

But don’t take my word, here’s what some happy Couples have to say about me:
My husband and I hired Dave as our wedding officiant and chose to go through pre-marital counseling with him as well. We both immediately felt comfortable with him and looked forward to every session. He is very knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to spirituality and relationships. He used a detailed and accurate assessment and its results to drive the sessions and conversation, but he would allow us to explore certain topics in more detail as needed and complete as many sessions as we needed before our wedding. He worked with our difficult schedules and was very communicative. He sent us multiple ceremony template options to review and allowed us to customize our ceremony to fit us. When the wedding day came, he was punctual and reliable and executed the ceremony effortlessly. We would absolutely recommend him for any and all counseling and marriage needs!
Pastor Dave is awesome! He is a very experienced and personable counselor. Won’t talk down to you but will lead with Godly wisdom and honesty. He really takes the time to get to know you. We did our intentional pre marital counseling/family blending counseling prior to with Dave then he officiated our wedding. We will continue to seek Dave’s counsel as needed moving forward for healthy maintenance in our marriage! You won’t regret investing in your mental health, current and future!
