Donald was not only funny and laid back, him and his wife Kathy were so so helpful throughout our whole wedding process. They went above and beyond. They didn't only give us the coolest ceremony ever and take the most magical pictures on earth, they also helped us with the flowers and the location. Donald also gave us the BEST advice when I contemplated doing the typical large wedding by saying not to. He assured me that keeping it small was the best decision and boy was he right. Our small amount of guests had the time of their lives and so did we. We are so grateful for finding Donald and Kathy! You cannot go wrong!

Weddings With A Heart made wedding planning easy! Don Beach responded very quickly to all e-mail communications and was insightful in terms of where to hold the ceremony, where to eat and where to stay in the area.
On the day of the ceremony, Don made us feel very relaxed and at ease. He and his wife are wonderful photographers; they captured our special day perfectly and we are thankful to have such beautiful photos as keepsakes from our special day!

Donny and his wife Kathy made our special day very magical! We really could not have asked for a more perfect wedding ceremony. From the moment we spoke to Donny, we knew we had found our officiant. If you are looking for a small, affordable, intimate and genuine wedding -- then search no more! Their customer service is impeccable, and they were such a pleasure to work with. This pair demonstrates what society has seemed to forget... a wedding is about two people and their feelings for each other, not some fancy hor' d' oeuvres. Last but certainly not least, the photography was absolutely breathtaking. This couple deserves more than 5 stars!

Happy Newlyweds,
Alysse & Justin

Thank you for making our wedding exactly what we dreamed of with every detail that we wanted for such an affordable cost.

Thank you from the deepest of our hearts. We look forward to celebrating our renewal of vows in a couple of years with you guys again :-) !

Don was our officiant and his wife Kathy was our photographer. They were excellent. Don was always very prompt in responding to emails. They were extremely professional. Don gave us great options for vows etc. He also gave us the suggestion for our venue which worked out perfectly. Their prices were very reasonable. His wife Kathy did a great job with our photos and again the prices were very reasonable. She was also very professional and helpful and made us feel very comfortable, as did Don. Our ceremony / vows were exactly what we wanted. We would highly recommend Weddings with a Heart to anyone.

Don is an affable and cheerful guy with a great sense of humor, but also with a very respectful and deeply human understanding of marriage. He can be both light-hearted and quite serous and sensitive at the same time. He is deeply committed to helping you create the ceremony that is right for you.

Weddings With A Heart was perfect for our simple intimate wedding. There was no stress involved at all. Less fuss.....More love! A few specific about them: they respond immediately to any question or request you may have. Speedy usually means minutes with them. In addition, they are very witty and carefree which makes the whole process very easy. They will accommodate any request you may have, and will adjust what they need to . For example, it was forecasted to rain and they offered to shoot pictures the next day . We also used them as my photographers. I was a bit weary at first because of the one stop shopping approach, but they will not disappoint. They captured who we were, and the important moments so beautifully. Once again the digital pictures were ready in hours! The wedding was meaningful and forever memorable!

Working with Don was a dream come true. When my fiance and I were planning our elopement to Newport we had hoped to find an officiant who would provide a beautiful, intimate ceremony mixed with a little humor and Don was the perfect choice! He had so many ceremony options for us to choose from and even allowed us to customize our choice for a ceremony that was completely "us." Also, we booked his wife Kathy to do our photography and the pictures she captured were amazing! We truly could not have had a better experience! Would book again in a heartbeat!

We could not be happier with our experience with Don & Kathy, who made our Block Island wedding so easy, fun, and absolutely beautiful. Don was always prompt and so helpful each time I reached out via email or phone; he provided us with awesome options for our vows, ideas for venues, and was so flexible and accomodating leading up to the wedding. The wedding itself was everything I've ever dreamed of. Kathy was so professional and easy to work with, and her photographs were absolutely gorgeous. Don put us both at ease with his carefree, humorous style, at the same time making the ceremony so meaningful. The photos were fun and captured everything that we wanted and then some, and were ready very quickly, within days! I am so thankful and happy to have found Don & Kathy, and would highly recommend Weddings with a Heart to anyone. They are the best!

We absolutely loved working with Donnie and his wife in setting-up the wedding. The service was very small (me, my wife, & unborn son). It took a handful of emails and call to Donald to set-up all the details. He was the officiant and photographer, and his wife the additional photographer. For the price of an average wedding dress we got 1st class treatment. He recommended the place (perfect beach at sunset), prepared the ceremony (short & sweet), and recommended a local florist for my wife's flowers and a hair dresser for my wife. We got to the beach at 7pm, by 750pm we were married and off to our romantic dinner. For a very very modest price we got over 200 pictures documenting the blast we had. We loved every bit of the service and would definitely recommend the service.
