We had Dan officiate our wedding, and he did an awesome job!! The ceremony was so nice and Dan was there every step of the way. We booked him for our wedding a year in advance and along the way I had random questions here and there and he responded to them right away via email and also assured me to ask any questions I had. He made us feel so comfortable and was on time for everything. Dan was recommended to me by my florist and I am so glad I met with Dan and booked him for our wedding ceremony. He was awesome! Thank you so much Dan!! :)

Dan was great. I received many compliments on his performance. I really liked how he personally greeted each table for the buffet to inform them it was their turn to go up. A little bit of effort goes a long way. My guests had a fantastic time. Thanks!

I couldn't have chosen a better officiant than Dan! I recommend choosing IWed Solutions for your wedding and here is why.....Dan is more than just a vendor that will perform a service for your function. He becomes a friend and friends are exactly what you need when planning a day that will remain a constant memory for you and your husband for the rest of your lives. From day one when we chose Dan, he was always available to us. Some of the requests and questions that he received from us were very unusual and probably a bit strange and he laughed with us and assisted us through it all. I even made a request of him the morning before and he accommodated it without a second thought. He created a very personalized and professional, but mostly meaningful ceremony for not only us but all of our guests, so that all 120 of us took away something very special from our day. I will always remember Dan most for his passion and understanding. The story behind my husband and I goes way back and this was a very emotional day for me also because we didn't have our parents to share the special day with us. I was very emotional and broke down during my vows and Dan very quietly walked me through it all so that I was composed and could make it through the vows. All I can say is that if you don't have Dan from IWed Solutions officiate your wedding, you will be missing the very best for you and your guests for the most special day of your life that you will always hold very close in your heart. And now after our wedding day, we have a lasting friend in our lives. Thanks Dan!

There are so many wonderful things to say about Dan and I Wed Solutions. My wedding couldn't have been more perfect. Dan did a great job with the ceremony. His messages were personalized, touching and from the heart. Dan made us feel comfortable during the ceremony and it showed in our laughter, excitement and joy. Dan also was our DJ for the reception. WOW! Introductions were personalized for each of the wedding party which added a very special touch! Once the dance floor was open, it stayed open! The floor was packed all night and everyone had a great time! I even had to extend our time for another 30 minutes because there were so many people still enjoying the party at the end!! I still receive compliments on how amazing the ceremony and music were to this day. If you want someone with a passion and talent for making your wedding day one to remember, choose Dan and I wed Solutions. I highly recommend them, and owe them a HUGE thank you for everything they did on my wedding day!! :-)

Dan was amazing! Not only did he do a great job keeping the party going till the very end of the night. But he also was my savior because I was very worried my Pastor would decide to not show up there would be no problem because Dan is an ordained minister and would have stepped in for him. All my guests said they had a blast, and the dance floor was never empty. Dan is very personable, professional, and organized. There was never a dull moment in the party and all the introductions went smoothly. I would definitely recommend Dan to anyone! He did an awesome job :)

Dan was an amazing DJ! The hardest part about writing a review for Dan and iWedSolutions is the fitting in all the great things about our experience! I’ll start with the price. iWedSolutions was not the least expensive DJ we looked at, but they were very competitively priced and were several hundred dollars cheaper than many professional DJ services in the area.

When my wife and I first met with Dan one thing that made us feel very comfortable hiring him as our DJ was the fact he had run a successful banquet hall for many years. The experience with weddings Dan gained from having his own banquet hall was evident even when we met for the first time. He worked with us to put together a general idea about music, but he also was able to offer great advice on other aspects of our wedding and reception which we would not have thought of on our own.

As great as Dan was to work with before the wedding, the job he did at our reception was on another level! He was at Parkway on the Lake plenty early to set up and be ready to play music for the hour of appetizers; and did a great job organizing the wedding party for the introductions and the speeches. Dan’s experience really showed in fact that he was able to anticipate when things needed to be done, worked well with the banquet hall manager, and helped make our reception completely stress free. Once the dancing started he was constantly moving around the dance floor making sure the sound quality was good. The entire evening Dan was assessing which songs and what type of music would keep people dancing and, I am not exaggerating when I say, the only reason the dance floor was ever empty was because we had to leave at the end of the night.

I have had so many people compliment the job Dan did as our DJ. To quote my best man, “It was just a big ole party!” and Dan had so much to do with making our reception such a memorable time.

Dan was amazing!!! My husband and I were 100% satified with our ceremony and the Reception. We had a sunday wedding and my guest that stayed to have a good time, for sure did!!! A lot of my guest came up to us and said how beautiful the ceremony was, and how awesome the DJ was. When working with Dan he had some suggestions and really good ideas, both for the Ceremony and Reception. My husband and I have no words on how happy and appericative Dan was. If anyone asks me who should be their DJ or Ordained Ministry I would say 100% Dan Neleson, I wed Solutions!!!! Just amazing!! We love you Dan!!

Dan is FABULOUS! He went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect from helping us select music for walking down the aisle to introductions. He handled everything and made sure that we stayed on time. Our guests had a great time dancing and there was nothing for us to do - but enjoy our day!

Thank goodness fro Dan and iWedSolutions! Dan is the best DJ around. We had fabulous music from the ceremony, introductions, dinner, and well into the night! Dan is so easy to work with and takes care of everything so you can just enjoy your day. His professionalism is top notch but he is still extremely personable and approachable. He thinks of the things you forget and makes everything run so seamlessly. Dan and iWedSolutions rocks!

Dan was very professional. He worked with us to personalize our ceremony. He also helped us deal with a very last minute change that we had to make. His coaching and input during the rehearsal made for a relaxed event for everyone in the wedding party. He did a great job. Would absolutely recommend Dan.

Dan was the best choice we could have made. He worked a wedding my wife and I attended about a year before ours, and he was the first person we booked during our process. The value for the price was outstanding, he accommodated our ceremony/cocktail hour/dinner music requests with no problem, and ran a great party after dinner. Very professional and responsive, would highly recommend him to anyone.

I used I Wed Solutions for my DJ services for my wedding. Dan was extremely professional and helpfull. I was uncertain on a few of my song choices and he suggested beautiful songs. Even my reception hall was impressed with Dan's professionalism. I would highly recommend Dan not only for him professionalism, cost, and helpfulness, but he was an absolute joy to work with and we are so happy we chose him for our DJ!!

Kate was our minister and she put together a wondeful ceremony for us, she was able to make a custom ceremony for us and was very easy to get a hold of. Also - they are in Grayslake, Illinois, not Idaho.

Both sides meaning the Bride and groom sides, not I Wed Solutions and the Bride and Groom. This was a great celebration.

Dan is a great DJ. He's got all the music and is always willing to get anything you ask for. His personality shines through but he doesn't try and take over a wedding. He's witty and can keep the crowd entertained. I've used him to DJ a few other events and he can go with the flow regarding all types of music, etc.

And he does MAGIC....close-up magic that is amazing!!
