We flew Pastor Dave out from Seattle to perform our ceremony in Central Ohio. He was really the only person we seriously considered because we’ve known him for so long and we know he’ll provide a secular humanist service. My wife and I both have different religious backgrounds, and I’ve identified as humanist since 2009, which is when and how I met Pastor Dave. He directed me to his website so we could see what services he offers. I found it easy to understand and to use. We had to reach out to him a few times leading up to the ceremony, and had no difficulty making contact with him, even factoring in the distance involved. He got to know our story so he could integrate it into his service in what he calls the Personal Message of Validation. I think that was everyone’s favorite part of the ceremony, and many people came up to us afterwards and told us how much they the ceremony.

We learned about Pastor Dave when we attended a co-workers wedding in his ceremony room. It was a very nice wedding in a small but beautiful room, and we reall liked Pastor Dave's personality. So we looked in to him for our bigger more formal wedding. We had 150 guests in a room at our country club. He was super easy to contact. He always gave us very detailed answers and he always had great ideas and good suggestions. We wanted to have a rose ceremony but weren't sure where to put it. It just felt right after our vows but before our rings once he suggested that. But the best thing he did was the Personal Statement. He sat with us for over an hour and just let us talk about us. He asked us where we met, about our first date, and so many other things. I felt like he really got to know us and cared about us. Then he included a bunch of things we told him in our ceremony. It was really nice. I think it helped our out of town relatives really learn about us and what made out marriage special. Plus he got in a couple of funny things that really kept the ceremony warm and friendly. He always showed up on time. He looked great in his big robe. We really knew we were getting married.

Hello Earl,

It was an absolute delight working with you and Emily. I was honored to be a part of your special day. It was a lot of fun working on your Statement of Personal Validation. You are a really fun couple and I had a lot of great information to personalize your ceremony. I hope you have a wonderful life together.

Pastor Dave was awesome and from the first time we talked on the phone he was easy to work with. We had an unexpected medical emergency that changed all our plans and he was so flexible to accommodate our changes we needed. We wanted to have a unique ceremony as we had "married" before laws updated for us over 27 yrs ago. We, together created exactly what we were looking for - something informal, yet special and memorable. Thanks Pastor Dave and know that we will recommend you to all our friends for unique or traditional ceremonies!

Dave officiated our wedding and he was great! We interviewed several officiants and Dave was the only one who spent time asking questions and took an interest in getting to know us and this made the ceremony a beautiful personal experience. Many people told us after that it was the best wedding ceremony they had heard.

Our experience with Pastor Dave was wonderful!
I had surprised my fiance with an elopement after he had half jokingly requested to be married for his birthday. This was no small task. It took a great deal of planning and communication to make everything play out as perfectly as it did.
Pastor Dave was very open to the ideas I had for our unique event. He was always quick to respond to any of my messages with thoughtful suggestions and kind assurances. He put my vision of our union before any preconceived notions he may have had...I felt nothing but supported.
Pastor Dave will always have our appreciation as an integral part of our magical day.
Thank you Pastor Dave. - Jamie Lynn and Andy
