  • David was a dream to work with. The ceremony was so special and every word was measured, meaningful and full of love. We will always remember this special day and the eloquent, central role he played. We can't recommend him enough.

  • David was a wonderful wedding officiant! My husband and I were thrilled with the ceremony David designed for us! We were hoping for a personal and fun ceremony and it was everything we could have asked for and then some. We HIGHLY recommend David for his responsiveness, professionalism, and for helping make our wedding ceremony a moment we will never forget.

  • David was very kind and helped to make our ceremony our own. He took the time to talk with us and get to know us. We had no idea how we wanted to build our ceremony and loved the way David set it up. He had beautiful blessings and readings to chose from, and he also allowed us to add what we wanted. Our ceremony was very special!

  • David is one of the most kind individuals we have ever met. When we first met with David, we both felt so at ease with him and we knew he was the perfect person to perform our ceremony. His friendly, compassionate nature was evident during our ceremony and he even included the perfect amount of humor. So many people commented on how wonderful his ceremony delivery was. Thank you, David!!!

  • It took us so long to find an officiant we felt comfortable with, and we met with sooo many people before we found Dave. I am more traditionally religious than my husband, and so we wanted to find someone who made us both comfortable. My husband and I both agree that we knew we found the right person the minute we sat down with Dave Tomkinson. He is willing to customize your ceremony, while also being so experienced that he will guide you the whole way. Our ceremony was so heartfelt even the photographer was crying, and we owe a lot of that to the warmth and sincerity David brought to the day. Highly recommend.

  • David is wonderful! He is confident, compassionate, and charismatic. I could go on. Even without doing a rehearsal (our choice even though David offered) we felt totally comfortable that we were in great hands. We also liked that he sat down with us at his home office for over an hour to get to know us and talk a bit about who we are, how we met, what we want in a ceremony etc. A true professional and the embodiment of who I always pictured marrying us! :)

  • My husband and I will never be able to thank David enough for his role in our wedding. I can be very particular, and David was more than happy to work with any of my requests - it was clear that all he cared about was making this the perfect experience for us. Although we lived out of state and we're only able to meet with him once in person, David made us feel as though we'd known him our whole lives, and that came across in our wedding ceremony. So many of our guests commented that the ceremony was their favorite part of the event - they all agreed that it was sentimental, endearing, and a perfect balance of religious significance and spiritual faith. He is a complete pro and knew exactly how to make us all comfortable and guide us through this nervous moment. Hands down, working with him was the best choice we made for our wedding - it made our ceremony feel truly like 'us' and set the tone for the remainder of the night. I could go on for ages... just give David a call and I'm sure... Read more

  • David was wonderful! My now husband :) and I are of different faiths and David was able to incorporate each of our faiths into the service allowing us to stay true to our individuality but also bringing us together in such a wonderfully worded ceremony. The service was short but impactful, exactly what we wanted. David is willing to make any changes in length, wording or adding readings etc. according to the couples wishes. David's overall demeanor was also exactly what we wanted. He has such a calm and peaceful presence but, at the same time, more than a few people commented that they had no trouble hearing his every word, with no mic. We feel so blessed to be married to each other now and we are very happy David was the minister to unite us. Thank you David!

    Thank you Vanessa. I felt truly blessed to be a part of your big day, and I appreciate your kind words and feedback. David

  • My husband and I wanted a beautiful and personal ceremony, and we are so fortunate to have found David. From the moment we met him we knew he would be a great fit. David took the time to get to know us and create an experience that was unique and memorable. We have received several compliments on how lovely the ceremony was and we could not be happier! I will most certainly be sending all of my friends and family members his way!

  • As the mother of bride, and the person responsible for planning my daughter's wedding, it was extremely important to me to find a wedding officiant who would be both personable yet professional. We also wanted to find someone who had a ministerial background as this was important to our family. We found all those qualities and more in Rev. David Tomkinson. As a minister, he brought just the right amount of solemnity to the wedding ceremony without making it feel overly religious. The words he chose for his personal message to the bride and groom, as well as his comments to the wedding guests, were both sincere and meaningful. He also provided good direction to the wedding party during the rehearsal so that everyone knew their respective roles. We received many positive comments from our guests after the wedding stating how perfectly the ceremony suited the bridal couple. I am more than happy to recommend Rev. Tomkinson as a wedding officiant; we are so thankful we found him!

  • David Tomkinson was great and everyone loved our ceremony. I would definitely recommend David to others. The only feedback I would provide to David is to be very clear as to when the final payment is due. We were asked the night before at the rehearsal dinner for payment, we then received a text later that night, and another follow up before the ceremony. I had already coordinated with my maid of honor to make the final payment so I didn't have the final payment with me.

  • I wrote to David using the email address that was provided on his website asking for his availability and pricing. The response I received was insulting and rude. The email stated that I was not a legitimate bride and that I could find other JPs that would "bite" on my "offer". In my email to David, I told him the date of my wedding, the location, and I told him I was excited to find him as his reviews were outstanding. I will follow his advice of finding someone else and you may want to do the same.
