  • We really wanted a non-religious wedding ceremony that incorporated Jewish tradition and we could not have found a better person. We couldn't believe our luck when Dave said he had done multiple similar weddings and could also read Hebrew. He really helped us to pick and choose what we wanted to include and allowed us to personalize things while also providing ideas. He was super on time, always willing to make changes and offer advice, and we received multiple compliments on our officiant after the ceremony.

  • We were at a bit of a loss when trying to figure out what to do about an officiant for our wedding, especially considering our venue was a llama farm. But after speaking with Dave over the phone, he immediately put us at ease. He has the perfect amount of humor, sincerity, and expertise. He went out of his way to take the time to meet up with us before the wedding in order to get to know us better. He walked us through options for the ceremony and what to expect, which was incredibly helpful for us, because we had absolutely no idea what we wanted. We would highly recommend Dave for those looking for an officiant who is flexible, reliable, funny, and easy to work with.

  • Coolest officiant there is! Dave was very quick to respond and after chatting on the phone we picked a day to meet in person. He was nice enough to meet us in our town. He asked a couple of questions to get to know us better and to prepare for our ceremony. It was already evident that Dave truly cares about his clients but when covid hit we were blown away. Our October wedding had to be rescheduled (to March) but we still wanted to do a little ceremony with a small group of friends. As soon as we asked Dave if he would marry us in October and then again in March, he was more than willing to do so! Dave once again drove out of his way to meet us and made our day super special with a personalized ceremony. Now we're even more excited for our second ceremony in March! Dave is cool, calm, and collected. You won't regret choosing him to help celebrate your day.

  • Dave was an incredible asset to our wedding this past weekend. He really cared about creating the perfect ceremony for us, for example timed it perfectly, added/took out what we wanted, and most importantly, made us laugh. He is well-spoken, kind, responsive, and overall a fantastic person who made the perfect officiant. Our guests couldn't get over how wonderful the ceremony was! Hiring him was of the best decisions we made, especially because we will likely be friends for a long time.

  • From the moment my husband and I met Dave we knew he would be an excellent officiant. He took the time to get to know us to ensure our vows were personal and special to us. Dave’s humor and kindness, yet professionalism was exactly what was needed during these uncertain times. Due to the pandemic we had to reschedule our wedding, however last minute we decided to elope - Dave jumped in and took the time out of his Monday morning to officiate our small ceremony without hesitation! We couldn’t have asked for a better person to officiate.

  • I had originally had planned for a friend to marry my husband and I, and when that fell through, I was lost. I ended up finding Daves profile and had a pretty good feeling about him. While he is an officiant, he is also a comedian and there is nothing more fitting for my husband and I. We spoke on the phone for about 30 minutes, he drafted up a ceremony and it was as simple as that. Its hard to find genuine people who are in it for the right reasons, rather than money, but I knew within minutes of our phone call what I had. Dave made it so much more special and he'll always be a part of the best day of our lives!

  • Considering we eloped in the middle of a pandemic, our wedding was anything but traditional. But Dave took everything in stride and managed to officiate a tasteful and emotional ceremony while still maintaining social distancing. Dave managed to balance humor and sentimentality perfectly when he married us. We highly recommend him as an officiant for his eloquence, sense of humor, and ability to roll with the punches. -Mick and Kat

  • Dave was a great officiant - my (now) husband and I were both nervous about the spotlight of a ceremony, but Dave's upbeat energy and humor made us both feel a lot more relaxed right before the ceremony and throughout. He was great about customizing the ceremony script to fit us and reading Hebrew for the Seven Blessings. Would recommend to any couple.

  • After lots of calls and emails, we found Dave and we are so happy we did! Dave did everything to make our ceremony one of a kind. He was funny, caring, very organized and kept everyone on schedule. Prior to the ceremony, Dave went above and beyond and we are so thankful to have him apart of our day. To add, all of our friends were so impressed and kept asking us where we found him. For many, after your wedding providers collect their money you never hear from them again. That is NOT Dave. We have kept in touch and are truly grateful for his ongoing kindness and forever friendship. One of a Kind!

  • Dave was the perfect officiant for our wedding! He was a complete professional and made the process easy - he put together a template and worked with us to personalize the ceremony. He was really flexible with last-minute changes and updates. On the day of the wedding, he got there early, participated in a quick rehearsal, and executed the ceremony really well. He achieved the perfect balance of romantic and funny, and our guests loved him!

  • Dave was an excellent officiant, we'd highly recommend him to any couple who're looking for their cermenoy to be personal, heartfelt and fun all at the same time - in his words "I'll make you laugh, I'll make you cry". The process was very straight-forward; one of the parts of planning our wedding that was completely stress free. We met up for him to get to know us and then he guided us through desiging and customizing the perfect ceremony as we got closer to the date. Last minute changes and updates were no issue. On the day, he arrived on time and talked me through the ceremony one last time, then executed it really well. Our guests loved it, as did we.

  • Dave is very thoughtful and meticulous. He was great to work with - had insightful comments, added a touch of hilarity and lightness without taking away from the depth of the occasion. He was organized, planned well and kept us updated of his progress, delivered drafts on time, and incorporated our asks skillfully into the ceremony. He offers to go over and above for his clients. Highly recommend Dave as an officiant if you're looking for an officiant that cares, will make the planning easy, and someone with a good sense of humour to get a few laughs out of the crowd :)
