I have to start off by saying that it took me almost a year to find an officiant for our wedding because I was being picky. With it being June in Tucson I knew I wanted it to be a quick outdoor ceremony, while still somehow having real meaning ...
and reflection so that it didn’t feel like we were in a rush to get through it. We were back and forth with asking a friend or a casual officiant, but then I knew I wanted someone with at least a bit of a religious background. We asked if he could direct the ceremony in a way for non religious and also religious people at the same time. And Dustin far exceeded anything and everything we could have imagined. After our initial video chat with Dustin we knew instantly he was our guy! He was very quick to respond to anything we asked, completely comfortable with any of our requests, and showed up early for rehearsal and the wedding. Our guests and our wedding venue (who has seen a lot of vendors) are still talking about how professional he was, how everything he said was so genuine and that you could tell he really cared to make our ceremony what we wanted. It’s not just a “job” to him. The ceremony is the entire reason a wedding comes together and I think people these days try to make it too carefree. But Dustin pulled in the serious with the light hearted wit perfectly and capturing a group of 140 and getting them to actually listen can be tricky. You can tell Dustin is a great listener, kind, and sincere, everything you would want in a pastor or someone to officiate your special day. I could go on for pages about how great he was! Seriously, hire him, it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day and marriage!

Dustin was quick to respond when I was inquiring about his services. He set up a phone meeting and immediately after sent invoice to pay deposit and a questioner to complete.
Once my date was confirmed, deposit was made and my fiancee and I fi...
lled out the questioner.
I was very surprised at the wedding that nothing we put in his questioner was mentioned or even referenced. We asked for a Christian wedding and he brought a tablet to read off of instead of a bible. He also lost his thoughts in the middle of me saying my vows. I know this can happen to anyone but was a little awkward at that important moment.
After the ceremony, he had us sign the marriage licence and said he would send off immediately. We left for our honeymoon to return home a week and a half later and learn he still had not sent it off. I text him to ask if he had sent it when we returned and no responce. I then called the courts the following day to find out it had not been sent. I text again to inform the courts did not have the license. I offered to come pick up from him and take to the courts. He responded to that text saying sorry for the delay and he had now mailed it. It took 18 days for the court to receive the license from the day we were married. Last thing to share is I sent a message asking if he had a copy of our ceremony/vows he could send me by email so I could print and hang. He never responded again. Very disappointed.

ll. My now husband and I had a situation where we had to get our marriage license signed two days after our wedding and Dustin willingly agreed to meet us to get it done. Not to mention he answered our calls on Thanksgiving Day! (Our wedding was Thanksgiving weekend). He is incredible and performed a beautiful service for us. We will never forget it!

The first thing that comes to mind in my experience with Pastor Dustin is his warm and inviting demeanor. Having witnessed multiple weddings, he has an obvious desire to create a unique experience for each couple, that is about them. Not about...
anything else. It’s refreshing to hear a wedding officiant highlight the important aspects of beginning a marriage and encourage the guests to take part in what a true celebration the day is and should be. He is concise, clear and enjoyable. I truly do see the joy he has in participating in a couples most joyous day. Creating a memory of how two are joined should be one filled with fondness. It is clear Dustin takes great care in creating a memorable, exclusive and very special ceremony, unlike any I have seen before. He comes with high praise and high recommendation! You will not be disappointed.

or our ceremony. "Short and Sweet" I believe is what we asked for, and Dustin delivered. Yet nothing was cut short or seemed rushed. It was the perfect amount of time, he said all the right things. We even had a minor adjustment a few days before the wedding, and he was 100% up for it. Dustin was easy to reach out and communicate with, which is pretty important for an officiant. I'm glad we had the opportunity to work with him and I would recommend him if you are in search of a flexible yet professional and honest officiant. Thanks Dustin for being a part of our special day!!
I am a Tucson native and a local pastor. I love weddings and have been in the business since 2012, averaging 3-4 ceremonies a month.
I love marriage and believe in a lifetime commitment based on love and respect. Nothing makes me happier than seeing two people who love each other and are committed to taking care of each other for life.
I enjoy taking time to get to know each couple and tailoring the ceremony to fit their needs. I offer a blend of traditional wedding elements with modern trends to create a comfortable environment; where you and your guests immediately feel at home.
