We used Dave to sign our marriage license the day before our wedding since my older brother was doing our ceremony! Dave was kind, professional, and accommodating toward us. He met with us at a time and place that was convenient for us and quic...

Dave was the most friendly, patient, and wonderful officiant we could have asked for. He worked with us to keep the ceremony short and sweet, but to involve certain elements that we really wanted in our big day. So many people came up to me to ...
comment how wonderful Dave was and how perfect the ceremony was. What we loved the most about Dave (beyond the fact that he’s a very kind person) is that he works with you to create the ceremony for you. So if you’d like a 20 min ceremony (which is what we wanted) he will work with you to tailor everything to fit your needs. And if you want something longer with more elements or a certain religious tone, Dave will work with you to create the perfect ceremony and script. Dave is professional with a commanding presence that is still soft and kind. You’d be making a mistake not to hire him!

Dave married my wife and I in March of 2020. We had first reached out to Dave back in the Fall of 2019 over phone and liked how easy going he was. We explained the type of ceremony we would like to have, and he emailed us a few templates to tai...
lor of ceremony too. Between our phone call and wedding day, he walked us through the process of obtaining our marriage license and what we could expect. We had a small (less than 20) family only ceremony and everyone remarked at how beautiful the ceremony was because of Dave's presentation. Dave left us a beautiful note, wishing us a lifetime of happiness and included a nice keepsake wedding certificate. He filed our marriage license the next business day and told us to follow up if we had any questions. I would highly recommend Dave to anyone getting married in the Charlottesville area. His kindness and professionalism made our wedding day as stress free as possible.

Dave officiated our wedding in October and he did an incredible job. From the first meeting we had with him, Dave was personable, laid back, and easy to get to know. We knew we wanted to book him after meeting him once and reading all of the in...
credible reviews. Dave was really helpful with choosing readings for our ceremony and planning out the order of the ceremony. He offered us a rehearsal the night before and arrived at our venue early on our wedding day. He has a great speaking voice and a wonderful, positive energy about him. He was integral in making our wedding ceremony so incredible. We were lucky to work with him and I’d recommend him to everyone!

We could not have asked for a better officiant. Dave went above and beyond personalizing the ceremony for us, and we had countless compliments from our guests. I've already recommended him to our friends that live in the area.

Dave was great to work with! We ended up booking him just two months before our wedding after other plans for an officiant fell through and I was really anxious about it, but Dave did a great job and it all worked out perfectly. He helped us fi...
gure out what we wanted to include in our ceremony ahead of time and took the lead on organizing the rehearsal vary naturally and with good humor. My fiance and I are both generally familiar with Charlottesville, but we lived in another state and I was worried about figuring out the logistical details of the cermeoney - who should stand where, how to signal the musician, etc. Dave had it all under control - He is very familiar with the area and knew our venue (the UVA Chapel) very well. He was able to lead the rehearsal with ease and his suggestions on logistical questions were on point. Also important, he has a pleasing speaking voice and a pleasant, non-pretentious manner - perfect for a wedding officiant! I highly recommend him.
