  • Peader provides an incredibly individualized ceremony, which he plans with you in great detail before hand. He's so professional, and we had several comments that it was one of the best ceremonies our guests had been to. He takes the time to give you exactly what you want, while adding personal touches too.

  • Being young in our faith, Rev. Dalton was totally perfect. He made us comfortable prior to (during phone calls) and during.. the ceremony. He answered all our questions. He made our special day even more special. He was genuine! We would recommend his services to anyone!

  • When Dave and I were first engaged we both knew the first thing we had to do was coordinate our wedding date with Paedar Dalton as we both wanted him to officiate at our wedding. We had seen him officiate at other ceremonies and he makes your ceremony extra special. We highly recommend Rev Dalton!

  • Rev. Dalton made our ceremony so wonderfully special. We had so many of our guests come up to us at the reception praising the ceremony he created for our wedding. I would recommend him to any of our family and friends.

  • My husband (Kyle) and I could not have asked for a better guide throughout this process than Reverend Dalton. He brought such knowledge and genuine kindness to our interactions, allowing Kyle and myself to relax and remain focused on what was most important to us, which was creating a truly special moment for us and our closest friends and family. Reverend Dalton's insightfulness, caring, and interest and attention to what was most important to Kyle and I led to the creation of the most meaningful ceremony I could have dreamt of. Those few moments are one of the aspects of our wedding that we reminisce on the most, and cherish deeply. Reverend Dalton was also kind enough to be present at the ceremony rehearsal, providing our families' a chance to meet him, an aspect that they all greatly enjoyed. Further, Reverend Dalton was so incredibly engaging throughout the ceremony, many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it, and how wonderful they thought it was. Looking back o...

  • After considering family members or friends to officiate our wedding, Jon and I are so pleased that we decided to spend the money on a professional - and specifically, Reverend Peadar Dalton. He has a way of words that is impossible for those without experience to replicate (and that were so eloquent, meaningful, and personal during our ceremony) . We received dozens of compliments from our guests on how well done his officiating was - and while he has a natural gift, it was also largely due to the time and attention he spent on us as a couple in the months leading up to the ceremony. Peadar had great suggestions for ways to make our ceremony unique and true to ourselves, and made sure to incorporate our families, grandparents, and heritages in thoughtful ways. It is so apparent to me that no two of his ceremonies are ever the same. I'd also like to thank Margarita for her responsiveness, support with scheduling, and extreme accommodation in ensuring they'd be able to help us w... Read more

  • We absolutely loved the service and received a wide variety of comments from our guests who found different aspects of the ceremony touching based on their own experiences. We do look at our rings as a reminder of our vows and of each other when we are apart. We look to frame our vows shortly as well. Please pass on our thanks to Peadar for a delightful ceremony.

  • Peadar did an absolutely amazing job officiating our wedding at Calistoga Ranch! We met with him a couple times leading up to the ceremony. He was so wonderful to work with. He gave us good advice not just for our ceremony but also for how to communicate well with each other throughout our marriage. He used bits of information that we had shared with him during prior meetings and mentioned it during the ceremony, which gave it a more personal feel. He really tailored the ceremony to reflect our personalities and beliefs. He gave us advice on readings we could use and rituals we can incorporate during our ceremony. He also walked us through the whole ceremony in his office a few weeks before our wedding, which was very helpful. Our guests also mentioned to us that he mingled with them before the ceremony and joked around with them, was very friendly, and made them laugh. He is very experienced and knows what he's doing! He really made the ceremony a beautiful and memorable experience. P... Read more

  • It was an absolute joy working with Rev. Dalton for our wedding! From the beginning he was incredibly responsive both over the phone and email, and made arrangements to work with our schedules for our meeting times. When we met for our initial consult, and both my now-husband and I were immediately put at ease by his calming (yet incredibly knowledgeable) demeanor. He was easy to talk with, and made sure that all of the ideas/dreams we wanted incorporated into our ceremony were included as we wished. But more than the basic services he provided, he went above and beyond every step of the way. He had done his research BEFORE we originally met, had visited our wedding website and knew each of our bridal party members by name. This additional touch was incredible... He took the time to talk with us about our beliefs, histories, met our wedding party one-by-one at the rehearsal, introduced himself to our parents and grandparents (and made notes regarding how many years they had been ma...

  • Rev Dalton helped us blend a Christian and Jewish ceremony together that was both respectful of our cultures but was completely open and welcoming. Our ceremony was filled with love, laughter and joy and that's due in a large part to Rev Dalton. They were very helpful in answering our questions first go and being prompt in their response. We initially spoke via Skype which was very convenient and had follow up meetings on the phone and in his office. We'll always be grateful for the role Rev Dalton played in our wedding :)

  • Craig and I were married at Gustafson Family vineyard in Geyserville, CA. It was an amazing ceremony. Who has guests coming up them complimenting the officiate?? WE DID! "That was the most beautiful ceremony I've ever attended.", "Where did you find him? That was awesome.", "When I get married, I want him." ETC. We were in the moment, and so were our guests. We heard compliments on the wine box ceremony and the ribbon ceremony. I am so glad that Reverend Peador took the time to visit with us, to get to know us and how important the blending of our families are to us. We had a dream team of vendors and can't be thankful enough for ALL of them, but at the end of the day, the moment of "I do" is with you forever, and Reverend Peador made that moment special. We are so thankful.

  • There are so many wonderful things to say about Reverend Peadar Dalton! Mostly is is that he is a wholeheartedly good person that wants to make your wedding ceremony as beautiful and meaningful as possible. From the very start we enjoyed working with Rev. Dalton, he just makes you feel special. There is nothing about him that seems like just another wedding vendor. We spoke with him on the phone a couple times and met him in his office twice. The original in person meeting was about 9 months before our wedding and it was so that we could meet him. Then the second meeting was two weeks before our wedding so that we could go over the specifics and make sure we had the timeline, readings, vows, etc chosen. On my wedding day he called me, wished me well and told me that I was going to have a beautiful and special wedding. Then he met us there and lead the most beautiful wedding ceremony that I could have ever imagined for us. Some of the things he said were not scripted, so it kept it ... Read more

  • I see here that it says, "Provide feedback that future brides..." well Rev. Dalton married my wife and I a week ago to the day(Yes future Husbands I would definitely recommend being attentive and involved through the whole process, I wish now that I was more but I have an amazing wife) and seeing as spirituality and religion and a higher power has played a larger roll in my life than my wife's I have to say that Rev. Paeder demonstrated and exemplified what it means to act as and be a pillar of faith, love, honor and devotion not only to the Institution/Sacrament of Marriage but also simply put to us as individuals but most of all Husband and Wife. Due to certain circumstances and the location of our wedding I was not able to have the support I would have liked there on that day however Rev. Paeder was able to alleviate any insecurities or the fear of the unknown/thoughts going on in my crazy mind. He was informative without being pushy, he was inviting while maintaining the integrity ... Read more

  • My husband and I were married at V. Sattui Winery in Saint Helena, CA last Fall of 2014. As soon as we secured our venue, I began reaching out to officiants. After reaching out to a view that were on the recommended list of vendors for V. Sattui and not being happy with any of them or feeling a connection, I ventured on Wedding Wire and other websites to find our officiant. I am sad to say that when I reached out to some officiants with a small intro email on how me and my husband were recently engaged and trying to find someone to join us in matrimony, nearly everyone replied with a 1-2 sentence response which just answered if they were available and their price. They didn't bother to get to know us or ask anything about us! It felt like a business transaction which I did not expect from the person marrying us (which is the most important part of the wedding in my eyes). When we reached out to Peadar Dalton at Your Ceremony Matters we immediately felt like he cared and wanted to... Read more

    Wow - what a surprise to read this. Thank you so very, very much. We feel blessed when we hear that long after the wedding day that what you most remembered was your wedding ceremony. That is what is at the heart of your day. We appreciate your taking the time to share and thank us. Please stay in touch, Margarita and Peadar
