Rev. Thompson performed the baptism of our son at our home. I'm so grateful that we found him, and would highly recommend him for any event. The ceremony was lovely -- heartfelt, dignified, but also with some humor. Rev. Thompson is friendly and outgoing -- my family raved about him after the christening. His fee is also very reasonable.

Reverend Dan is fun, friendly, great at communication, driven, realistic, accommodating, and very reasonably priced. He is custom tailoring our ceremony. We felt comfortable once we met with him. And after the ceremony we are receiving a book on how to navigate rocky bumps in marriage, and a book with our ceremony printed in it. Great feelings about this officiant.

Reverend Dan has been a friend of mine since we worked on a wedding together the wedding of the derecho storm in 2012. We have worked together on many weddings, some by chance and others where I referred him to my clients. He was the only person I considered to officiate our wedding. To me, he simply is the person that should get people married. It seems like his calling.

He is generous with his time and is happy to meet and chat about the wedding and anything that may come up during the conversation. He is comfortable and helps put anxious brides at ease. His service was personal, intimate and powerful. I cannot thank Dan enough for being a part of my wedding day. It made all the difference in our ceremony and meaning behind it.

Rev. Thompson was excellent. He was prompt in his emails and very courteous. We first met him over lunch during Christmas and he was very nice, asking us about our families and what we envisioned for our wedding. He respected our desire for a secular ceremony, and had 13 ceremony templates to choose from. He worked with us to include some things that were meaningful to us. Some of our guests thought our families had known him for years. He attended the rehearsal and the ceremony and was very reasonably priced (especially when compared to other officiants in the area). I would recommend him in a heart beat!

Reverend Dan is the best. We found Reverend Dan on Thumbtack and set up a meeting. He was incredibly sweet and brought a gift for us on our first meeting! We hadn't even booked him yet and found that to be such a nice gesture. Rev. Dan has many, many years of experience and he is great at what he does! He sent us four ceremonies to choose from since we weren't sure where to start. From there, we combined pieces from each and created our own custom ceremony. He also asked if we would like to include any religious or cultural pieces. We found the history behind the term "tying the knot" and we were able to incorporate a beautiful segment into the ceremony with this. The mother of the groom and mother of the bride were ushered up by the youngest brothers and tied two pieces of ribbon together. From there Rev Dan tied our hands together and said an Irish prayer. It was beautiful and we received so many compliments from our guests. Rev Dan arrived on time and well dressed for both our rehearsal and the wedding. His price is also considerably less than anyone else around. Regardless of price, we were going with Rev Dan! We consider him a personal friend now and I would absolutely recommend him for your wedding.

Pastor Dan was just amazing! He was so easy to communicate with, for our first meeting he took us out to lunch. I was a bit hesitant to go to lunch with a random person I never met, I thought it would be really awkward. I have never had such a pleasant easygoing lunch with a person I just met. He was so much fun! We learned a lot about him and his family; he was very interested in learning about us. As soon as we left, we knew we wanted him to marry us. Oh and we were VERY picky when it came to finding a person to marry us. Pastor called me few weeks before the wedding to make sure we have everything ready, he offered to bring any props that we needs, sand, candles. We had sand ceremony as well as stomping on the glass, he took care of the glass and napkin in our wedding color. He was great during ceremony, had few jokes and advices, but not too much to make a circus out of our wedding. He was just absolutely great, I would recommend him to anyone! Oh and I have!

Reverend Dan Thompson was wonderful to work with. He has 4 different ceremony selections that we got to choose from. He also gave us some pre-martial videos to watch with a follow-along booklet. We met with him a few times to go over ceremony details. He was willing to meet with us whenever we wanted. He was prompt in returning emails and arrived to our rehearsal and ceremony on time (in fact very early). He was a pleasure to work with and our ceremony was beautiful! I would highly recommend him to anyone! His fee was about $200 for everything.

Reverend Thompson was actually referred to us by another Reverand that we had contacted that had recently retired from officiating weddings. We were very pleased when we met with Reverend Thompson as he was very well versed both in speaking and experience in ministry as well as being able to relate to us as a couple which made it a little more personal at the ceremony which is what we were looking for.

He was very flexible in being able to meet with us a couple of times prior to our wedding as well as he joined us at the Rehearsal and Rehearsal dinner. He provided us with a couple of different templates to choose from for our ceremony outline which was nice to be able to have options and to put together exactly what we wanted in our ceremony.
