  • I could not have picked a better person to officiate our wedding. I got to meet Dusty through my wedding planner. I felt very comfortable with him at our first meeting. He did a ceremony just for us and added some special touches I asked for. A day before the wedding I asked him if he could add something else in and he was more than happy to do so. At the reception and still to this day I have family and friends tell me how beautiful the ceremony was and ask who the officiant was. The ceremony Dusty did was beyond beautiful. I could not have been more happy with it!

  • It was a pleasure to work with Dusty. He gives you a copy of what he will say at your wedding, options to choose from, and is flexible about any ideas you have. He wants your wedding to be all yours, anyway you want it. He does rehearsals, too. If you have any questions he returns your calls within one day. He both gracious, and well spoken. I definitely recommend him. Note: he does not come with his own microphone though, if you need one you supply it. Dusty is professional, prompt, speaks clearly, and adds makes your wedding as you wish.

  • from the moment my husband and I contacted Dusty, we felt an instant connection to his warmth and enthusiasm. Dusty asked several questions regarding our ceremony and the type of ceremony we wanted for our special day. He was so informative, well-organized and passionate about his work; we truly couldn’t have asked for a better or more caring officiant. He wrote the outline of our ceremony immediately and allowed us to FaceTime him regarding various things we wanted to add to our ceremony. Dusty didn’t hesitate to add special moments throughout our ceremony and made God the center of it like we requested. I didn’t realize how important it was to connect to our officiant until we met Dusty. He will always be one of the most special parts of our wedding. Thank you for everything, Dusty. We are so blessed to have met you!

  • We found Dusty on a whim while searching for officiants for our wedding and we couldn't be happier that we found him. He was the perfect fit for us, young, hip, flexible, local, and affordable... and so dang nice. He gave us a couple of different options for our ceremony. We knew we wanted to keep it short and sweet and his basic ceremony sample was perfect. He gave us the option to change it as much as we wanted but there was no need to it was perfect and said everything we wanted to say. All we added was a few short/funny vows to make it personal and it was as easy as that. He was very easy to communicate with and made sure the day of we had everything we needed. He arrived well before the ceremony time to sort out the details with the marriage license and mailed it back to the courthouse right away. I would highly recommend Dusty if you're in need of an officiant!!!

  • Dusty did an amazing job officiating our wedding ceremony. He was so easy to work with and truly put us at ease as soon as we met with him. He offered great suggestions while helping us stay true to our vision. We also really appreciated that he fit us in although he already had a wedding scheduled later that day, and never once did he seem to be in a hurry. He was fully present and truly seemed to enjoy officiating our wedding. Thank you Dusty!

  • Dusty was incredibly professional and helpful from the moment we reached out to him, and knew exactly what we hoped to hear, feel, and communicate during our ceremony. Dusty is articulate and captured the attention of everyone in the room from start to finish. We're still receiving compliments from our guests on our heartfelt ceremony, and we have Dusty to thank for it!

  • Words can not describe how amazing Dusty made our ceremony. It was very important to grandparents for our wedding have Jewish elements in it and he did a wonderful job incorporating some Jewish Traditions in our not very religious ceremony. Dusty also took time out of his busy wedding summer to meet with my husband and I. He helped us write our vows. At first the idea of someone I never met marrying us seemed a little impersonal, but getting to know Dusty, having him meet with us, made all the difference. It was beautiful and there truly wasn't a dry eye in the house.

  • Dusty did a perfect job in officiating our wedding. From preparations to delivery, we could not have asked for a better result. He made our wedding feel that much more special in the way in which he delivered our ceremony in the most heartfelt manner. I honestly cannot say enough about Dusty and am so grateful to Santa Barbara Romantic Weddings for referring us to him! It was a positively perfect day, with Dusty at the center. Thank you!!
