  • With the short time given for Rev. cooper to conduct the wedding service, he was most helpful and provided a wedding ceremony that was special.

  • Everything about the service was wonderful. Me and my wife felt so comfortable around him it was as if he was a part of the family, in fact we insisted he stay for dinner with the family at the wedding.

  • We're very satisfied about the service of David. He was very responsible and helpful, really did a wonderful job for our wedding and made our wedding so holy, so funny, so sweet...A lot of our friends asked us where we find David. Also we think their price is very reasonable compared with other officiants in the area. Highly recommend!

  • We chose to use Rev D as our officiant with only about a month before the wedding. He was so helpful, so wonderful, we are so happy we chose him and were lucky enough to have him be a crucial part of our wedding. We would highly, highly, highly recommend he and his wife, you will not be disapointed! Prompt, fun, energetic and ready to help in any way they can. Thanks again Rev D!

  • David was the perfect officiant for us: he provided us with tons of ideas/materials but let us tailor the ceremony to our own style. He was laid back but professional, and we would recommend him to anyone.

  • Looking for an officiant in March for an August wedding was a mistake, we had waited too long. As it happened everything worked out just right David and Joanna had been planning to take a vacation that week and had canceled because requests for that weekend were overwhelming, lucky for us. It took minutes to decide David was the perfect officiant for us to work with. I couldn’t have asked for anyone to be more flexible, professional or easy to work with his humor complemented ours to a t. David went out of his way to make our day special and very memorable not to mention as stress free as possible. We would not hesitate to recommend Rev D to anyone and hope we will be able to have him present for our vow renewal 25 years from now. Christine and Noah

  • It was wonderful to work with Rev. D. Warren Cooper! He was open to the ceremony that a family member had written, but still offered suggestions where he thought they would help. His presence and personality as well as his sense of humor put us at ease from our first meeting. Finding an officiant was one of the hardest things for us, and we were blessed to find him. All our guests (as well as ourselves) were incredibly pleased with the ceremony and several mentioned to us that it was one of the most beautiful weddings they had ever attended.

  • Joanne was a wonderful officiant. We enjoyed meeting her, and she immediately put us at ease. My husband had never been married before, and was very nervous about meeting her, and the ceremony itself. Her kind and professional demeanor put him at ease immediately, and there was never a moments doubt for him after that! I highly recommend Forever,Together for your wedding!

  • Rev. David Cooper was wonderful! Of all the vendors we had to work with he was by far the most helpful and least stressful of all of them. He was very quick to respond to email (my favorite form of communication when stressed with wedding issues!), he has a very friendly attitude that we did not encounter with some other officiants we interviewed. He loves what he does and it truly shows. David works for a wonderful price (he is worth much more than he charges) and allthough it was one of the most inexspensive purchases for our wedding, the return was so much more than everything else put together. He rolled with my groom and I's mistakes and he was not rushed to get out of there after. He is a true friend, and a lovely person. We are so thankful that we found him, and we could not sing his praises enough! With Sincere Thanks, Paul and Donna

  • David was my officiant on my 8/2008 wedding. I was very nervous about picking a officiant but I was quickly set at ease. David met my mother and I at Starbucks and I quickly decided he was the right man for the job. We met for about an hour and he answered all my silly questions, and offered suggestions for the some of the "traditions" I was uncomfortable with. He also sent me later that day a ton of wedding ceremonies to chose from. He also did some research to find more readings. He arrived on time, even though I didn't walk on time, he put me at ease. He made sure to double check how to say some Ukrainian names of my family member who have passed on. His voice level was perfect for our outdoor wedding ( I was nervous people wouldn't be able to hear). His aspect of my wedding went perfect when other parts didn't. I had so many compliments about the "rose ceremony". Ask him about it, it was wonderful.

    Thank you so much, Heather. It was truly my honor and my pleasure to work with you both. Have a wonderful summer and let's keep in touch. - Rev. D.

  • Rev. Cooper was great! We would (and did!) recommend his services to our friends. He was punctual, organized, professional and fun. His guidance and advice were extremely helpful and never pushy. Our ceremony was exactly how we wanted it... I can look back and say that I wouldn't change a thing.

  • Rev David Cooper was amazing; he made our day feel like just that..our day. We have had so many comments on how beautiful our ceremony was and we would not have been able to have it be as perfect as it was without David. I would recommend him to anyone, he really listens to what you want and is so great to work with; I loved his sense of humor and how relaxed he made us feel.

    Thank you so much, but the pleasure was mine! - Rev. D.

  • He was very good at getting back to us in a timely manner with the planning of the ceremony. I was a little nervous about him being late to the wedding. He did another one right before ours in Seattle.

    I can understand your concern but I always leave at least an hour, and usually two or three, between engagements on the same day. What happened in your case was that the wedding ahead of yours changed their start time at the last minute, which cut things a bit closer than usual. For the record, I've never been late to a wedding, and I'm very glad yours was not the first :-) It was great working with you both. I wish you love and luck, always. Best, Rev. D.

  • In all of our correspondence Joanne would tell me that when she was there it was all about me and my day. When she arrived, she had not reviewed my ceremony, had not practiced and was not prepared for a special part of it that ended up being dropped because of her lack of experience and preparedness. When she arrived and we found out my dress would be a little late she continually stated "I have another wedding to get to". It seemed that my small private wedding meant nothing to her and all she cared about was getting to this other wedding across town. I felt as though my day meant nothing to her and that she didn't care. When the ceremony did proceed, she rushed through things, quickly read the words,often stumbling over them or leaving some out entirely and asked us questions about the ceremony as the ceremony was progressing. She didn't accommodate our photographer or videographer, she was asked a few times to step aside to allow the shot of the bridesmaid walking in and my entrance... Read more

    I was very sorry to learn Melissa was unhappy with my services. The satisfaction of my clients has always been my most important consideration. However, as is often the case, there’s a lot that Melissa leaves out of her story, and I feel I should at least set the record straight. To begin with, the reason her dress was late arriving was that her mother forgot to bring it to the wedding and had to drive all the way home to retrieve it! As a result, the wedding was delayed over 90 minutes. Even giving her the benefit of every doubt, this was much more than “a little” late. Melissa gives the impression that she was unaware I had another event scheduled for that day, but that is not true. I always inform clients at the time of booking, if I have other events scheduled on their wedding day. Under normal circumstances, these are scheduled with more than enough time between them for me to get easily from one to the other. In this case, the excessive delay forced me to choose between two less-than-perfect alternatives: start on time but without the wedding dress, or wait for the dress and do a shortened ceremony. I decided to wait, even though it jeopardized my later commitment. In retrospect, this was probably the wrong decision, but I knew Melissa was already stressed out and I didn’t want to make things worse. The “special part” of the ceremony referred to is the “Handfasting”, a tradition I’ve performed, with great success, dozens of times. What Melissa neglects to mention is that the decision to leave the Handfasting out of her wedding was mutual, a consequence of the 90-minute delay, and had nothing to do with my ability, or my willingness, to perform it. Finally, I honestly don't understand what led Melissa to believe that I did not “accommodate” the photographer and videographer. If she had actually spoken to them (as I did), then she would have known this was simply not the case. At no point was I asked to “step aside” (no photographer I’ve worked with has ever spoken to me in that way), but if I had, then I would have complied without a second thought. Over the years, I’ve worked smoothly, and cooperatively, with at least 50 photographers and videographers, and without a single complaint. Whenever a bride (or groom) is unhappy, it’s regrettable. My husband and I have done over 150 weddings between us, and I can count the number of mishaps on one hand, with fingers left over. The other reviews on this page, as well as those on our website, attest to the quality of service we provide. Unfortunately, sometimes in spite of our very best efforts, things don’t go as planned, or hoped. In those situations, it works best if everyone remains flexible and tries to “go with the flow,” but with so much emotion invested in the day, this isn’t always possible. In this case, the forgotten wedding dress, and the problems it created, were out of my control. I did what I thought best at the time to try and reach a positive outcome. Sadly, I wasn’t able to make that happen, and for better or worse, it’s water under the bridge. I wish Melissa had come directly back to me with her feelings, instead of posting them here, and given me a chance to work with her. I would have bent over backwards to try and find a better resolution. I’m still more than willing to do that.
