  • After being a wedding planner in Wine Country for over 100 weddings, I left the area, but I returned 5 years later to get married myself. When it came to officiants, there was only one person I wanted to marry us, and that was Peadar. In all the wedding ceremonies he officiated with me over the years, he made every one unique. He takes the time to learn about every couple and what is important to them, and he brings a special spirit to the day. He combines the prepared vows and traditions with a whimsical air that lets the ceremony be organic. He was already booked on the day we picked and it was so important to us to have Paedar, that we changed the start time of our wedding so that he could officiate after his other wedding was over. Our wedding ceremony was special and uniquely “us”, and I feel so lucky to have been able to work with Peadar on my own wedding.

  • Rev. Peadar Dalton officiated our wedding at Tyge William Cellars in Sonoma, CA on May 12, 2018. My husband and I could not have asked for a better ceremony. Everything was very thoughtful, sweet, and well done. We appreciate all the time and effort that was put into our ceremony and wedding. It truly was the perfect day and we are so blessed. Rev. Peadar Dalton did an excellent job and we received many compliments on the ceremony. Our family and friends all agreed that it was one of the best they have seen. We highly recommend Rev. Peadar Dalton. It was great to get to know him and have him be a major part of our wedding. Thanks, Mr. and Mrs. Ibarra

  • Looking for a wedding officiant when one is out of state was seeming overwhelming until our Napa Valley resort gave us a list of names. After sorting through the list in the end there was only one obvious choice for us and that was Rev Peadar Dalton. He and his staff were immediately responsive to our requests and concerns in finding the right officiant for a same sex marriage. After our first phone call I was completely reassured by his compassion, kindness and a sincere felt sense that our ceremony really does matter to us and to Peadar. He really put a lot into our elopement with continuous dialogue through emails and face time. Peadar took great care in getting to know us both and understanding the various nuances which were key to making our ceremony sacred and especially meaningful. We were fortunate to also meet his wife and have her participate in our elopement. We found a very sincere and kindred spirit in both Peadar and Margarita. Our only disappointment was not in b...

  • Rev. Peadar Dalton made our wedding day the most wonderful day of our lives. I know our family member's name is hard to pronounce because they are not an English name but he remembered their names correctly and called the name for each person. Everything went so smoothly. I cannot say enough good things about Rev. Peadar Dalton!

    Wow! Thank you Shera! We wish you all the best. Keep in touch!

  • Rev. Peadar was wonderful, our entire family felt like he was "part of he gang". He fit in perfectly with our spirit and diverse backgrounds. My husband and I could not be happier and more excited, to not only have been married in such a beautiful place, but with close family and a Rev. that respected us and our requests. He made us feel comfortable, he tailored the ceremony to our needs and made it extra special and unique. We knew from the first time we spoke to Peadar over the phone that it was the perfect fit. And then when we went to get our marriage license - the Clerk said "You're so lucky" when we told her who was performing the ceremony! A wedding ceremony is an unforgettable experience, and Rev. Peadar made it ever more special.

    What a lovely compliment, thank you so much!

  • We cannot say more about our beautiful wedding ceremony officiated by Rev. Peadar Dalton who really took the time to get to know us and to make sure our wedding ceremony was very unique and special to us. We both feel so blessed that we were referred to Rev. Dalton to officiate our marriage. We heard from many of our guests following the ceremony how wonderful he was and how he had such a beautiful way of bringing in all faiths and making everyone feel like they were such a meaningful part of our ceremony. We highly recommend Rev. Dalton for any type of ceremony you want blessed and memorialized by such a deep and passionate man who really cares about making your ceremony very special and unforgettable. Cathy and Jim Rogers

  • Rev. Peadar made our day so special. We were so honored to have him be a part of our ceremony. He is really good at making sure the celebration was personalized and a reflection of who we were. He gave us great recommendations on how to share our personalities in the ceremony structure. He's also extremely profession and personable - always reached out to us to make sure we were on schedule with the planning and finalizing our marriage documents. He's a very talented public speaker... (and his awesome Irish accent didn't hurt!) Immediately after the ceremony we had friends and family raving about how awesome he was and many even said they want to use him for a future wedding. We are so lucky to get to know Peadar during our engagement as he's a very special person who believes so passionately in marriage and love. Thank you, Peadar, for making our ceremony perfect!

  • Rev. Dalton was a truly wonderful partner for our ceremony. As many others have said, he really took the time to get to know us and incorporated US into the ceremony - there was nothing stock about the ceremony. His words during the ceremony were specific, thoughtful, insightful, and meaningful. There was also the right amount of humor and lightness. So many of our guests made special mention of what a wonderful ceremony it was and specifically how impressive Rev. Dalton was. We feel so lucky that he was a part of our wedding day - we can't say enough good things about him.

  • Rev. Peadar, thank you so much for being our celebrant on our wedding day at The Carneros.  The ceremony was friendly, with lots of joy, laughter and tears of happiness.  We'll remember your wise advices.  Our guests commented afterwards that you did a great job and we agree!  Thank you for guiding us through the process and making it easy and joyable.

  • Rev Dalton was all we ever dreamed and much more for our destination wedding ceremony in Napa! Although never meeting him prior to the ceremony, we felt like we had known him for a lifetime. He contacted us prior to the date on several occasions to get to know about us and also extended an open policy to answer any concerns. PERSONABLE and GENUINE!

    Melissa, what a nice review. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of such a special day.

  • Our wedding would not have been complete without Peadar Dalton. He truly made our day so special and we will always be grateful to him. Our guests could not stop talking about how wonderful he is and how beautiful the ceremony was. Peadar really takes the time to get to know you and wants to make sure that he captures everything that you want. We spoke with him numerous times before the wedding so that we had no concerns. Thank you so much, Peadar!

  • Reverend Dalton truly made our wedding magical. He truly cared about our special day and even included our children (blended family) in the actual ceremony. Peadar was also helpful with information weeks before our wedding giving us step by step information on what to do and what to expect. Highly recommend him.

    Kristin, thank you so much. What a magical day it was!

  • Peadar was very understanding of our individual backgrounds and religious preferences! He took the time to get to know us as individuals and as a couple what brought us together. We loved the fact that he asked about our families and how our families influenced and shaped our lives. We strongly reccommend meeting with him for a counseling session before your wedding, he offered much insight into our relationship together and offered good tips and how to strengthen our friendship. In conclusion our ceremony was excellent because as an officiant Peadar was able to relate to us more as friends rather than strangers which made it more intimate. We will continue to meet with Peadar after our wedding for counseling sessions as well as share our life experiences!
