Whether you're getting married at a resort, on a farm, at your special place, inside or outside, or at our own Kalura Gardens, it would be my honor to serve you.

Before I prepare your vows I'll ask you for details about your wants, needs and expectations for your wedding. I write custom vows for each couple. I include a unique knot ceremony to seal your marriage and include some ways to build a lasting love. I feel that marriage is an important step in your relationship so I end all of my ceremonies by asking for God's blessing.

You may choose to get married at our place. We've called it Kalura Gardens. My grandparents had a nursery with the same name and our family is trying to continue the growing tradition. It is a beautiful piece of farmland with rolling hills and a beautiful pond. We have lots of flower gardens and a greenhouse for indoor weddings.

We are located in Central Pennsylvania and we look forward to hearing from you. Read less

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, Islam, Jainism, Jewish, Muslim, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoist
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes. We can come to your home, reception site, special meeting place. You could also come to our place, Kalura Gardens, which has a pond, flower gardens and more.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I can accommodate whatever is expected from wearing formal wear to Hawaiian shirts. Let me know. It's your wedding day and you should have everything go your way.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes. Once you've decided to have me perform your ceremony, I'll talk with you about your ideas for your wedding. Then, I'll compose your vows and send you a copy of them so that you have the option of making any changes before the wedding and you won't have any surprises that day.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes, definitely.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
No. I have suggested readings but I'll be happy to give you any assistance that you would like.
How long are your ceremonies?
15 minutes to 30 minutes depending on what you want to include in your ceremony for example, Unity Candle, Remembrance Ceremony for someone special, etc. You may also want to have additional speakers or singers which would add time.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Rehearsal on a different day can also be arranged. We could discuss the additional fee for that. On the other hand, I am willing to conduct pre-ceremony rehearsals, usually about 45 minutes before the service, at no extra fee.
Do you supply a sound system?
Usually the DJ supplies the sound system if needed. At smaller weddings, no sound system is needed. We do have a portable Bose system of wedding music that we could bring if you'd like.

Mayor Dan was the perfect fit for our wedding! Dan and his wife Gloria were so quick to respond to any question or concern we had. Rehearsal day they were so patient with my knucklehead bridal party :) Our whole ceremony went smooth! We loved the gift of the celtic knot from Gloria and Dan..it is such a special keepsake from our wedding day. Thank you for a perfect ceremony!

I cant say enough good things about Dan and his wife Gloria. I waited until 6 weeks before my wedding to actually pick a officiant. I read the great reviews of Dan and called him. For not putting that much effort into it, I definitely lucked out. Dan and Gloria were extremely responsive and helpful. They were very accommodating. For the actual wedding day, he kept it just as we wanted. It was very special and touching without being too serious. Highly recommended!

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us a review of your wedding. One could tell that the words you and Janet said to each other were from the heart. It was also good to see our other couple who tied their knot recently. Thanks for asking for our help.

Working with Mayor Dan and his wife Gloria was a wonderful experience for us. Out of all of our vendors, they communicated with us the most and were on top of things from the very first time we contacted them. Mayor Dan showed up early to the ceremony and rehearsed with us. He dressed very nice and we received many nice comments from our guests on the vows and words he spoke. The Celtic knot we did was a great idea we did at his suggestion. They left a card for us with our vows and everything printed out inside the card. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them and I would recommend them in a heartbeat.

Mayor Dan and Gloria were fantastic. We had many changes to our vows from the time we first contacted them to the point of the ceremony, and they were very accommodating and helped so much with the creative process of getting it just right.

I actually had met Mayor Dan and Gloria previously through my work and already knew Mayor Dan would be the perfect officiant for us. He is kind, patient and warm-hearted, and conducted the ceremony perfectly!

Dan was an amazing officiant. There are no words to describe how easy and professional he made everything. I would give 25 stars if we could. Gloria (his wife) is super responsive to your questions and concerns via email. If you want to have a personal & meaningful ceremony, please contact them. Can not recommend enough!

Mayor Dan McDavitt & his wife Gloria were so incredibly helpful and sweet through the entire process. They customized our ceremony and service which featured a brief story about how we met. Our guests were raving about the beautiful ceremony we had and how great our officiant was! Throughout the entire process they answered every question and helped me along the way! Dan was able to calm my groom down a bit as he was very emotional - it was very sweet! We planned our wedding from afar - being from South Jersey and our Wedding in upstate PA, we were forced to deal with most of our vendors over the phone. Dan & Gloria made our lives very easy and put our minds at ease.
A few days later, while going through our cards - we were surprised to find a big envelope from Dan & Gloria that contained our Wedding Vows and entire service printed on cards that we could frame. It was such a nice touch and made us so happy to re-read and re-live our entire ceremony over again!

Thank you Dan & Gloria :)
