“New to the area”

Gilbert and I were so fortunate to have had Don officiate our wedding. We were new to the area and really did not know who would do our wedding, but we are thankful for Don being friendly, professional, and most of all very responsive and accommodating on our very important day. Don was also very easy to work with and was readily available for any type of questions during the wedding planning process. Definitely recommend!

“Don is invited to the BBQ’s”!!!

We were married 6-15-19. When me and my wife initially met with Don we explained to him that we’re of two different religious faiths. Don made everyone who attended our ceremony feel inclusive. Don coordinated with us to develop a ceremony script and he delivered it beautifully. Don was patient and detailed even as we made changes to our ceremony up until the day before our wedding. Don’s attention to detail included a small but important detail; he asked for our wedding colors so as to not clash with the bridal party. Thank you Don for making our special day that much more special.……Ismail & Eno Abdulah

“Thanks Don!”

Hi Don,

Thank you so much for being our officiant and helping to formalize our family.  We had a fantastic time!  You brought energy and significance to this event which made it a very special day.
Please share this as a review on your website.
Thank you,

“We decided to elope!!!”

…….but that meant not having our pastor/ordained friends doing our ceremony. We looked online to find a wedding officiant and found Don. We read through Don’s profile and his reviews and were very pleased and asked him to do our ceremony. We couldn’t be happier with how our wedding turned out. We would and will recommend Don to anyone. Don’s passion/love for marrying people is very apparent! Thank you Don!!!!!!!!!

“craigslist guy”

I have to admit that I was a little skeptical when my cousin-in-law told me she found an officiant on Craigslist for her September 2018 wedding. This was the first big wedding I coordinated so saying that I was worried about this “craigslist guy” not showing up was an understatement. Well, in walked Don, I breathed a sigh of relief and immediately felt at ease. I gave him a copy of the timeline for the ceremony and he was ready to go. He was humorous throughout the ceremony and read everything as the bride and groom has asked. He waited patiently for the bride and groom to finish family pictures following the nuptials, so he could fill out all of the paperwork with them. He was a delight to work with and I would recommend him to any client of mine getting married.

“Pastor Don was a joy to work with from the start! On day one, it felt like he already knew me and my husband. We clicked immediately, and he understood exactly what we were looking for in our ceremony. We didn’t have a church wedding ceremony, and opted instead for a blend of Christian and Muslim traditions. Pastor Don took the time to listen and get to know us, and helped us create a ceremony that was truly personal and reflective of our long love for each other. He put together a draft of what he was going to say very quickly, giving us a number of options for vows and readings that he could incorporate. We could tell they were all carefully selected, and we had a tough time picking one because we loved them all. We added our own touch to the vows and reading and Pastor Don immediately came ready when it was time to practice at the rehearsal and the day of the wedding. Pastor Don was responsive, flexible and extremely easy to work with. On our wedding day, he arrived early, prepared and ready to go. He was a calming presence for me on an otherwise crazy day. There will be a million things to worry about on your wedding day, and you’ll be grateful to know that with Pastor Don, you have one less thing to stress over. He’s a professional, and is great at what he does.”

“Don was such a great wedding officiant! My husband and I live in the southwest and got married in Oregon where my family lives. Don met with us in person 6 months before the wedding to discuss what we wanted and maintained prompt communication the entire year leading up to the wedding. He was great at including what we wanted the ceremony to be about and made it all such a great experience!”
