A marriage ceremony between a traditional or gay/lesbian couple is the most important part of the wedding day! The remainder of your wedding day pivots on this one celebratory moment, which then creates the foundation upon which your lives are cherished.

I believe it should be something truly sparkling! A touching wedding ceremony captures the essence of the couple, creates a feeling of magic, tells a beautiful love story, makes people laugh and cry, gives you goose bumps and leaves you and your guests saying “wow”. Your vows and personalized ceremony creates a memory that will last a life time!

As your Justice of the Peace, I will support you but not overshadow your ideas, offer a professional presence, and lend a clear and articulate voice to your ceremony. Allow you to fully customize your day!

I look forward to working with you on your big day.

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Baha'i Faith, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Anglican, Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Mormon, Christian - Orthodox, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker, Evangelical, Hindu, Jewish
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes I will perform any type of ceremony that the couple is looking for this is about what they want it is not about me! I have 25 years of experience to help guide them through the process.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I wear a black or navy blue suit with a white shirt and tie. I have a judges robe that can be worn if the couples what me to. I will also dress anyway they want me to if the wedding is specialized or more relaxed.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
I am very flexible this is there day and I always customize the wedding ceremony especially for them.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes of course. Most do not feel comfortable doing that but I also have specialized vows I can share with them to help them pick the ones that are special for them. I can help them to repeat them after me but I say them in short sentences as I know people are nervous on that day!
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have 2 wedding packages for the couple to select their own ceremony. It is very important to me that they design their own wedding ceremony to be what they both want and love. They know each other best so it is more meaningful to them when they design those special words, ceremonies and vows. But I can help them to do that as I have a lot of materials to share with them.
How long are your ceremonies?
I recommend a ceremony to be about 10-15 minutes in length. The whole ceremony will be about ½ hour with the processional and the recessional. But you do not want someone talking for the full ½ hour it is way too long for the nervous couple! But that is a beautiful ceremony.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No but I can glad to help in that way if they want me to.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes I always try to go to all the rehearsals as I like to meet the family and bridal party. I never stay for dinner but I can help during the rehearsal for sure.
Do you supply a sound system?
No I do not have a sound system. But I am a public speaker and can project my voice without yelling. It is very important to me that everyone hears the ceremony. I make sure that I can be heard by all.

Dan was amazing. He was so professional, kind, and made us feel so comfortable when he spoke during the ceremony. He knew exactly where to stand, how to speak to our guests, and was always smiling. He even had a tissue ready for me when I started crying during my vows. Thank you so much Dan, you really made our expirience special and one to remember!

Dan did an amazing job officiating our wedding! He supplied all the readings and vow options for our ceremony which made our selection much easier! Dan arrived early and met with our groomsmen, bridesmaids, parents, and us (separately). He went over some of the details which eased everyone's mind. We had many guests comment on how wonderful he was during the ceremony. He provided everything we were looking for in an officiant and more! We highly recommend Dan as an officiant!

My husband and I were thrilled to have Dan as a part of our day. He worked with us to personalize the ceremony readings and ensured that our ceremony was tailored to us. We received many compliments about him from our guests, as he provided a wonderful wedding experience for everyone. I would highly recommend him to any couple looking for an experienced, professional and charismatic officiant.

Dan Griffiths was a "god sent" to us for our wedding. We knew as soon as we met Dan that we were in good hands and we really were. We had numerous guests ask us after our wedding who our officiant was and how we found him.. They all remarked on how wonderful he was and how much he added to our wedding ceremony. He was and he did :) We are very grateful that we found Dan to join us in marriage.

We had Dan officiate our wedding last weekend. He was fabulous. Everyone spoke to us afterwards and wanted to know how we found him. He made coordinating a wedding from afar exceptionally easy. His manners, poise and grace were well noted. We found a gem when we found Dan!

Dan was our JP for our wedding and we were thrilled with how great he was! He made us feel so comfortable from the moment we met him! The day of the wedding he was amazing! From the start he made sure we were both calm and assured us how great everything was going to go! People have commented on how great of a JP we had! I find that to be something people don't normally speak about after a wedding--normally it is the food, or the DJ--we heard great things about both of those but people also commented on how great of a job Dan did and how he put so much emotion into the ceremony. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone who is looking for a JP that has a great personality and is an extreme professional!

After our original officiant (family friend) had to unexpectedly back out of our wedding ceremony, we contacted our venue for JP referrals. Enter Dan Griffiths. I emailed him about availability via his website (http://www.dangriffiths.me/) and received a response within the hour. Wow!

From there, I knew he was going to be quick, direct and sweet. We knew he was going to be great - but were pleasantly surprised by what a spectacular officiant he was.

Everyone (and I mean everyone!) raved and raved about how amazing Dan Griffiths was. My sister (the matron of honor) said that she found herself nodding along to what he were saying about marriage and love. Both of our parents appreciated the parent-tribute portion of the ceremony. My brothers all loved the shout out to those who couldn't be with us that day. Other couples commented on how short and sweet it was.

Other words were heard about Dan and his work during that night: "truly amazing", "so genuine", "how long have you known Dan? He seemed like he is your best friend and mentor", "absolutely the best ceremony", "one-of-a-kind", "calming and sincere".

We are thankful Dan was there to marry us that day! He exceeded all of our expectations and made the day exactly was it supposed to be: perfect!

I would highly recommend Dan to any bride looking for an officiant for their wedding. Dan was very professional and easy to work with. He walked us through putting together a personalized ceremony and gave us the guidance we needed while still allowing us to make it our own. Dan walked our entire bridal party through the ceremony at the rehearsal and left us all feeling prepared for the big day. Most importantly, on the day of the ceremony, he did an amazing job. Several of my guests commented on how wonderful he was. I even had two other engaged couple asked me for his contact information after the ceremony!

We are so glad we chose Dan Griffiths to be our JOP. The ceremony ran so smoothly and everyone commented on how lovely it was. Dan made us feel so calm while we were standing infront of our family and friends. His bright smile throughout the entire ceremony put us at ease. He was everything we wanted in a JOP, he made the ceremony intimate, personal and very memorable.
