My original Officiant backed out last minute so I had to book David pretty late in the game. I was so lucky he was available because he was fantastic! He was very polite, personal, funny, and sweet. It was so nice to meet him on the day of the wedding. He was always easy to get ahold of and responded promptly and professional. Someone asked to add something in the ceremony and he made sure to come and ask us before to make sure it was okay with us. I appreciated that so much! Also since marriage licenses are ugly, he actually made us a pretty one and printed out everything for us. He made us a little pamphlet of our wedding as well that I thought was adorable. Such a great hire!!

David was great to work with and helped us to create our dream ceremony! We loved how we were able to personalize our ceremony and vows. He was very accommodating and we would definitely recommend him to any couple looking to have a personalized ceremony but lack the creativity to write their own vows!

The officiant was the only vendor that we had to truly shop around as we really wanted someone that made us feel comfortable. David was absolutely the right person. He was very responsive and catered the ceremony to exactly what we wanted. During the ceremony David was very relaxed and personable. He even has a huge smile on his face in our pictures, which just showed that he enjoys what he does. Thank you, David!

We had no idea going in what we wanted to do really, and David had lots of ideas to make our day special. My children were included also in the ceremony in a moving way that I know they found special too. It was quite the last minute ceremony, and David was able to meet with us and make us feel comfortable. Lots of options. Thanks!

After many unanswered calls from my church, I was left with the decision of hiring an officiant. David was recommended to us by my wedding coordinator. Considering it was the most important day of our life, I didn't want just some random Joeschmo to officiate, I wanted to feel some type of connection with them, not just some stranger. I called David to set up an appointment and he was very flexible and accomodating. Before the actual appointment, David sent an email of examples of some of the weddings he's personally officiated.The night before the appointment, I started to read that email. I read the first wedding, and I thought, hmm that was nice. I read the second wedding and thought, hmm, that was unique and different. I like it. And then I got to the third ceremony...After reading the intro, my heart started to feel warm, and after the prayer, my eyes started to feel funny, and as soon as i got the vows, I was boohooing!!! WHOOOAAA. I WAS SHOCKED. I am not emotional nor am I a mushy lovey dovey type of person and I was shocked that something on paper moved me. At that moment, there was a connection. I felt like David's personality kind of showed through on his ceremonies. it felt sincere and real. Not like a romance novel or some fairytale. At that moment, I knew we would hire him. I met David the next day and booked him right then and there.
He was so easy to work with and he makes you feel so comfortable, like you've known him for years. I actually messed up a couple of times during my speech at the ceremony and David was awesome, he made it funny vs uncomfortable. He made it fun vs embarrasing. We also handwrote our vows at the last minute, and as a gift, he offered to reprint our ceremony keepsake to include our vows and that made it all the more special to us!!! All in all, he definitely made our day, OUR DAY, and it was special and memorable. What more could we ask for?

My husband and I had a destination wedding in Florida and decided to find an officiant in the Jacksonville area to help officiate our wedding. We wanted a ceremony that was somewhat religious but also short and sweet. David was great with helping us to customize our ceremony to include everything we wanted. It definitely felt like it was meant for us and not just a stock ceremony. He was able to meet with us in person once when were in Florida and he was very responsive throughout the whole process. He was also very polite and professional and he conducted the ceremony effortlessly.

My husband and I are residents of TN and decided we wanted to get married on the beach in Amelia Island. My mother lives on the island, so I put her in charge of finding the right location. Mr. Tagliaferri had no problems working with me long distance and her in a closer location. He was flexible when we decided to change our original location because my husband wanted to get married on the beach near Fort Clinch. We didn't meet Mr. Tagliaferri face-to-face until 2 nights before the wedding, but he was well prepared and flexible to a last minute change in the ceremony. He is professional, friendly, and personable. He can also be humorous, which worked perfectly for us because we wanted a simple "day at the beach" wedding. We got that with a whole lot of laughs mixed in the romance.

My husband and I had a great experience working with David as our wedding officiant. He was recommended by our wedding planner and we were very pleased with his services throughout the entire process. David was super easy to work with, and this was especially appreciated since we were an out-of-town couple. We had an initial Skype video chat with David and immediately took to his easy-going nature and personality. We knew he’d be a great match as our wedding officiant, besides the fact that he’s officiated numerous weddings over the years. We worked with him to create a ceremony that was right for us – in our case, non-religious but with some cultural traditions. (He was able to provide a number of samples of weddings that he had officiated, and a resource about various wedding traditions which was interesting and useful. He also provided lots of useful resources around other aspects of the wedding and wedding planning, as well as info about obtaining the marriage license and name changing.) We did a fair amount of writing and editing of the wedding ceremony to get it just right and David was totally on board with all of our changes, which was great. David even created a beautiful marriage certificate for us, because the signed official document from FL is not so pretty ...and he also presented another surprise to us at our wedding which was a lovely keepsake. We really enjoyed working with David and highly recommend him!
