What is your attire for the ceremony?
Usually a suit however it is up to the couple.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?

Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes. We love it when a couple takes the time to put their hearts passion into their vows! However, if they don't feel comfortable with that we have a selection of traditional vows for them to choose from.

Typically a ceremony performed by River City Wedding will last between 15 to 20 minutes depending on the variations the couple chooses.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No. It is encouraged but not required.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Absolutely! We strongly recommend a pre-ceremony rehearsal. If the couple desires that the Officiant attend that will be arranged. If not then we have a detailed guide, free of charge, that will aid the couple through the rehearsal.
Do you supply a sound system?
Unfortunately we do not provide sound systems however if the couple's DJ or Band has a wireless microphone our Officiant will wear it if asked.

David went far above and beyond what I had expected!
I even had to change the date of the wedding and he responded within 12 hours to let me know that everything was fine and he would still be there for there ceremony and the rehearsal.
He also gave a beautiful printed booklet of the entire custom ceremony to my husband and I the day of our wedding.
I'm very glad I chose David as the officiant for my wedding, I'm not sure I could have made a better choice.

David at River City Weddings was great to work with. We had no idea how to write a wedding ceremony, let alone where to even start. David helped guide us to craft a meaningful ceremony with both religious and non-religious components. He was quick to respond to our emails, flexible with meeting with us, and made everything overall so easy and stress-free. Honestly, meeting with him was like chatting with an old friend. We are so glad to have had him as a part of our wedding ceremony.

David was really fantastic, and the perfect fit for our wedding. He worked with us to completely customize our ceremony. We were looking for meaningful, but brief and mostly non-religious. Everyone that attended told me what a wonderful ceremony it was, not a dry eye in the place! We had a rehearsal also, and he helped us come up with not 1, but two rehearsal ideas, in case of rain for our outdoor wedding :)

Since this was the second wedding for both of us, we wanted something intimate and low key yet still befitting the occasion. David helped us make our wedding ceremony exactly what we wanted! He also assisted us with age appropriate ideas to include our children (16, 18, 28) in the ceremony. David worked around our timetable and schedule to meet, and kept us on track as we neared our wedding date. It is apparent that David genuinely enjoys uniting people in marriage with everything he offers, from the ceremony choices to his professionalism to his eloquent sentiments!

David did an amazing job in the role as officiant for our wedding! During the wedding planning process we had such a difficult time finding someone who we really 'clicked' with, someone who was able to put us at ease, offer ideas but not be pushy about it, and allow us to share our ideas too. We were able to design the entire ceremony around our vision, so it fit us perfectly. I highly recommend him!

He had a very professional presentation of the vows we could choose and even included our kids in the ceremony. He went above and beyond our expectations in every way. He was very affordable also!

David did an excellent job at our wedding! He was recommended to us by the owner/wedding coordinator of Le Jardin on Park and we are so glad we went with her recommendation. We asked him to come to our rehearsal so we were fully prepared the day of the wedding. Everything went very smoothly and we couldn't have asked to a better person to have married us! Thank you so much David!!!

David was wonderful. He responded immediately to my initial emails, answered all questions throughly. He was incredibly flexible when it came to meeting me for a ceremony packet overview. On the wedding day, he showed up exactly when he said he would, not a minute late. We said 6pm, at 5:59 he arrived, traveling from a 4:30pm wedding located south of St Augustine. I was impressed with his professionalism and flexibility. Highly recommend.

My husband and I highly recommend David to perform your ceremony. He was punctual in his appointments, easy to understand, with a pleasant smile. He has a great presence and he is photogenic, too, so the officiant of your ceremony is attractive in your pictures! He takes his time and is willing to perform your ceremony as you would like. It is obvious to us that he enjoys performing ceremonies and takes pride in his work.

We had a hard time finding an officiant due to scheduling issues and such, but we found David and River City Weddings and couldn't be happier. From the first consulation on, he was very helpful and informative with information and didn't pressure us to book him. We loved how he has different options to choose from in each part of the ceremony and we could alter to make it more personal. The extras he provided was very unexpected and very special (personal certificate to keep and a book of our ceremony with our personal vows included). We would highly recommend River City Weddings to any couple looking for an officiant for their special day. Thank you David for making it so special for us!

I love how he had selections for us to choose from for each part of the service so that we could customize the ceremony without too much effort. He has a lot of experience and this showed through as he expertly guided us through the ceremony. He even surprised us at the end with a fancy printed booklet of our ceremony which was so sweet.

You cannot go wrong with choosing River City Weddings to officiate your wedding. My husband is Catholic and I am Jewish and we wanted to make sure our wedding was as nondenominational as possible, to avoid upsetting family members on either side. Our day-of coordinator recommended David at River City Weddings. From our very first meeting, my husband and I knew that David was exactly who we were looking for to marry us. David walked us through the options he had for ceremonies and had us pick how we wanted it to flow. We also were able to make as many changes as we wanted to the options David had. It didn't stop there. David also recommended a creative alternative to the unity candle called the Wine Box Ceremony. I had never heard of it before but our guests LOVED it and couldn't stop raving about how unique and sweet it was! He also let us borrow his personal arch from his own wedding ceremony, gave us a beautiful marriage certificate to frame, printed and bound copies of the ceremony and presented it to our mothers, answered legal questions we had about the marriage license after 10pm when we had an emergency situation, and made the entire process amazing. He truly went above and beyond for us and our families absolutely LOVED him. Choosing David to officiate our wedding was by far one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding.

David was wonderful to work with and 100% professional. He returned all calls very quickly. He emailed me a sample of the ceremony with sample vows that I could review prior to our initial meeting. The example of the ceremony he presented to us was perfect and we decided to do minimal customization specific to our needs, but it was so nice not to have to start from scratch and reinvent the wheel.
He was a wonderful part of our wedding and helped move things along in a smooth happy way with his professional, happy attitude.

The example of the ceremony he presented to us was perfect and we decided to do minimal customization specific to our needs, but it was so nice not to have to start from scratch and reinvent the wheel.
He was a wonderful part of our wedding and helped move things along in a smooth happy way with his professional, happy attitude. Read less

We selected David after reviewing a lot of options in our area. We really liked how organized he was, his flexibility to work around our preferences, and his prompt communications for any questions or clarification we needed! We also love his tech saavy approach, using his iPad for the readings, which allows for any last minute changes, if needed!

Thanks David!!

David was beyond amazing! He made light of the situation as far as the fact that he had written the opening for our beach front wedding, and then the weather and mother nature had other plans in mind, forcing us inside.

He also let me do what I needed to do in order to keep from being a complete basket case during the ceremoney. Not to mention the way he walked me through my vows, as I was about to lose it when it became my turn to repeat.

He also went new age and used his iPad to do the ceremoney vs the traditional book. We aren't the traditional couple and therefore this made it even more special for us.

Thanks again David!!!

Sincerely,
Stephanie & Francisco Resurreccion.

Ah, David! You made our day so sweet. He was the perfect complement to our wedding ceremony - he was engaged, caring, respectful and patient. David took care of the ceremony preparation and provided many little touches that show he is more than just there to officiate the wedding. He is the kind of person who, when your ceremony is done and the picture taking begins, you make sure you get a shot of with you as you want to include him in your memories. And we always will. Thank you David! Carol & Harry

David helped us with all the selections for the ceremony, gave feedback and alternatives and really knew the material that was prepared for us. He was prompt, knowledgable, and performed wonderfully at the wedding. He was the one thing in my wedding planned that I knew I didn't have to worry about after our first meeting. :)
We had a terrific ceremony, and a few laughs to calm the nerves before starting towards the crowd. He was friendly and receptive to all the guests and family and a true delight. Thanks again David for all your help!

We were coming from out of state to do a small wedding on the beach. We didn't know the area well, David told us about a beautiful location and was so flexible to take time when we got there to show us the most perfect spot for our ceremony and even had a back up location in mind in case we got rain. He was quick to respond to our questions and found a lot of information I couldn't have easily gotten on my own.I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone! The Ceremony was beautiful and we had the perfect wedding for us!

David at River City Weddings was so great to work with! He was very understanding of our limited schedule (being that we were planning from out of town) and was extremely professional. He provided us with a lot of guidance on writing our ceremony, but also allowed us a lot of flexibility to make it unique to us. I would definitely recommend him to anyone getting married in the area.

As always I am honored when a customer selects me to perform their wedding. I was referred to Julie and Matt by one of her brides maids who's wedding I had performed just weeks before. Having a great couple makes my job that much easier and Julie and Matt were that and more. Thank you Julie and Matt for the pleasure of performing your wedding!

Sherri and Michael were great to work with. The wedding site was unique and the bride was the picture of beauty as a horse drawn carriage delivered her to her waiting groom. I had a wonderful time and they're a great couple! It was an honor to perform this and every wedding I do.

Rivercity Weddings owner is one of my friends, but even though he was a friend he was very professional. He knows how to do his job and he does it well. He also knows the importance of what the bride and groom want is more important than what the family wants. He did a really good job in helping us decide on the ceremony and how it would be worded.

We used David L Tagliaferri via a wedding coordinator and she made arrangements with him for us. It was our first time getting married and our first time ever working with 2 complete strangers in managing one of our most important events of our lives. At first we were very leery since it was our first time ever doing something like this, but after communicating via e-mail we believed everything was handled very professional and done extremely well, considering our timeline we provided for our ceremony; i.e. within about 2 to 3 weeks notice. David had hardly any preparation time and yet he ensured us everything will be as requested. And he came through to his word. The only thing we had to provide to David was our vows and signatures authorizing him to perform our ceremony. We were amazed of how well he did with limited preparation time.
David L Tagliaferri waited patiently for us after the ceremony in order to finalize our remaining documents. He was very friendly & personable. He later sent us a thank you card which we believed added a very nice personal touch. It meant a lot to us and was totally unexpected. We will definitely refer him to others.
