  • We found Dusty at the recommendation of another officiant we had interviewed. I'm so glad we went with Dusty! He is kind and so helpful! We loved his prompt communication and straightforward approach as we wanted a simple ceremony. Even his 'simple ceremony' is so full of heart! Our location changed twice (sorry Dusty!) and he was so gracious and accomodating. He was perfectly on time and everyone enjoyed the ceremony! Recommend highly!

  • Our experience with Dusty as our wedding officiant was memorable. He was responsive and worked with my wife and I to put together a ceremony that we will always remember. I highly recommend Dusty to couples looking for a personable/professional officiant. He does a great job of communicating and preparing you for the big day! Thank you Dusty!

  • 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!
