Rev. Dave was awesome! We couldn't have asked for a better officiant! From the first time we met him to discuss our needs we knew we wouldn't need to look further. He offered a variety of ceremony choices for my daughter and her fiance. He is very friendly and easy going and PROFESSIONAL! I highly recommend his services to anyone in need of an officiant.
Thank you Rev. Dave for making this such a wonderful experience for all of us!
Rev. Dave was wonderful and very responsive. I loved how we were able to personalize our ceremony and it made us both feel very comfortable. He also gave us a discount because my husband is in the military, which I thought was very kind. I would highly recommend Rev. Dave for your special day, he was a joy to work with.
Reverend Dave did an excellent job with our ceremony. Everyone I spoke with was very impressed with him. He offers a wide variety of ceremonies and really allowed us to tailor the ceremony to fit us as a couple. He was amazing and really helped our day turn out perfectly.
Rev dave was excellent and very friendly! an the cost was great he gave us a discount for the hubby being in the millitary... but they made my rehersal day an wedding day run smooth! would highly recomend him!!!
RoxAnn was amazing! She was very professional and a ton of fun from the very beginning. She came to our initial interview well prepared with a visual presentation about her services. She was very friendly and warm as well as very funny. She put us at ease immediately and demonstrated that she could deliver on our big day. We left the interview knowing that she would be an awesome choice and disappointed we had scheduled interviews with other officiants.
RoxAnn let us write our own ceremony. She provided multiple templates for each part of the ceremony but did not require us to use her content. We combined what she provided with other ceremonies we found on the Internet to write our perfect ceremony. We are not religious so we had a completely secular wedding. This was not a problem at all for RoxAnn. Her templates contained many examples for both religious and secular weddings so it was easy to choose ones that worked for us.
RoxAnn was prompt to the rehearsal and she put us ease as we were scrambling to setup for our big day. Everyone at the rehearsal absolutely loved RoxAnn. She was hilarious. I don’t want to give away her surprises so I’ll just say RoxAnn brought her bag of tricks that kept everyone at the rehearsal laughing.
One of our friend’s who was at the rehearsal is also a minister. He was taking notes the whole time and said that she did a wonderful job. Many of our bridal party and family commented after the rehearsal that she was the best officiant they had ever seen and asked how we had found her.
On the big day RoxAnn was on time and ready to rock. We were nervous but her confidence helped calm us down. She delivered our custom ceremony flawlessly and there wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd.
We really cannot thank RoxAnn enough. She was the perfect officiant and we highly recommend her to everyone.
They did a great job at making sure we knew what to expect. THere were a lot of choices but the Marriage Ministers are wonderful. THey are really genuine people and did a great job on our ceremony!
they made the day and rehearsal fun, they knew just how to make you relaxed, and did an excellent job
We were very pleased with the service that we receieved.
We were extremely impressed with Rev Dave and Roxanne's organization skills and professionalism. From the very first meeting it was obvious we were in good hands. From the impressive pre-wedding preparation to the rehearsal and culminating in a wonderful ceremony, everything went smoothly. We are very happy we chose them to officiate our wedding and have no hesitation in recommending them to others. Thank you very much!
Dave & Roxane are very personable & professional!!! Our pastor cancelled on us 2 weeks prior to the wedding, and Erin @ Lake Natoma Inn reccomended them highly,
we called, & they picked up the ball & ran with it!!! We were so greatful because we were so comfortable and we felt we could trust them from the beginning!!! They took what was going to be a very stressful period before the wedding and made it alot calmer!!! They were a big part of of our successful wedding!!! THANKS DAVE & ROXANE!!! Love Cara & Vic!!!
Marriage minister provided great services. They where so easy to get a hold of and very flexable with our dates as they changed several times. They did a great rehersak and it made our special day go that much smoother. I would refer them to anyone I know having a wedding they where so great.
My experience in working with Marriage Minister was great overall. I would definitely recommend using her as she adds a bit of humor in all of the right spots.
RoxAnn was excellent, very professional and organized. Ran the rehearsal which was good since we didn't really know the ins and outs of weddings. Would definitely recommend them to anyone.
Both Rev. RoxAnn and Dave are wonderful. They more than met our expectations. It was rather warm outside at our wedding, they were prepared with fans for all our guests. They were great.
RoxAnn & Dave were awsome! They were very sweet and funny too! I would recommend these two to perform your special day. Thanks a bunch......

After our first officiant canceled via email... Rev Dave came to our rescue at very short notice... He was willing to meet with us at our convenience and was nothing but supportive. His calm attitude and helpful advice helped to guide us through this meaningful and often stressful portion of our wedding with no problems. He even came to our rehersal as part of his services and made this also a fun yet productive time... I would recommend him to all my family and friends without a doubt!!
We picked Marriage Minister as the Officiant as one of my friends also used their services for there wedding. We made the right decision also in taking our friends advice as we got what we paid for and we were given all of the advice that we needed by the Marriage Mister and the variety of planning that they did was unbelievable. The services that they provided to us was great and us the rituals performed were right to the detail. I cannot say enough about how good of a time we had with the Marriage Minister's services.
Rev. Dave was wonderful! He was organized and professional yet warm and supportive. Though I never have had a chance to meet Roxanne, she was very pleasant on the phone. Rev. Dave ran our rehersal smoothly, even with a few unruley participants and he did a fabulous job accomodating our wishes on the day of our wedding. I would absolutley reccomend Marraige Minister!
We have filmed a few weddings where "Marriage Minister" was the minister - we love every one of them. If you want a romantic and surreal ceremony, choose the "Marriage Minister". Yes, we would recommend them to a friend.
I am a wedding officiant, so you might be surprised that I would endorse another officiant (or two). However, I have no hesitation recommending David and RoxAnn (husband and wife of Marriage Ministers). They are delightful, committed, and sincere ministers, and their ceremonies are touching and lighthearted when appropriate. When I need to refer a couple to another minister, I always suggest Marriage Ministers.
We've worked with the Marriage Minister a handful of times over the years and we are always impressed with their attention to detail. We also appreicate that before the ceremony they seek us out to go over the details of the ceremony and provide us with a timeline. Not many officiants bother to do that. The ceremony always ends up being beautiful and running flawlessly when they are there!
These guys are very proffesional. They are fun, energetic and ready to help you plann the ceremony YOU want.
We are a husband-and-wife team - so you have a choice of a male or female officiant - depending on availability. (Although Rev. Dave tends to conduct 70-75% first-time brides and
Rev. Rox performs about the same number in second-time brides.)
Our services include Rehearsal Coordination, either working with your coordinator or organizing and running the Rehearsal from the Seating of the Mothers to the Pronouncement and Receiving Line. We provide Rehearsal Buttons to the bridal party. (This helps us identify the members of the family and party.) With the Bride and Groom, we like to review "The Kiss" and Ring Exchange. Photographers appreciate that we take the time to go through that extra effort for better photos.
And, of course, one of us will be there to officiate your special day. We come prepared with our Wedding Day Emergency Kit and handheld fans for your guests of outside weddings. For your ceremony, you can choose one of over 20 different wedding ceremony rituals, including the Unity Candle, Sand Ceremony, Vows involving Children, Lasso, Coin and Veil or Smudging.
Did you get married and no one knows? And now you are planning a wedding? We can help. We are very discreet. (We have helped many couples who eloped for various reasons.)
Contact us to set up an appointment and we hope that you "Let me be the one to marry you..."
Rev. Rox: Your ceremony is a public statement of your commitment. You don't want it look unorganized.
Rev. Dave: If Rox runs your rehearsal, be sure to ask her who Pepe is...and don't make him mad.
Rev. Rox: I don’t sacrifice anything, because I don’t cook. I don’t jump out of anything because I don’t fly and I don’t perform ceremonies naked because after two babies, this body isn’t for display.
Rev. David: I would agree with the sacrifice, but I’m willing to jump out of an airplane! We will wear Hawaiian or Renaissance attire for theme-weddings. We also reserve the right to review the ceremony for content. If it doesn’t belong in mixed company, then it probably doesn’t belong in a wedding.
Do I need a blood test?
Rev. Rox: As of January 1, 1995, a blood test is no longer needed to obtain a marriage license.
Should I provide you with a corsage/boutonniere?
Rev. David: It's not necessary. Some couples do give us a corsage or boutonniere to wear since we are in a lot of your wedding photos.
Rev. Rox: And we save the flowers we receive. We dry them and add them to our "wedding wreath".
Where do I get a marriage license?
Rev. David: A couple can pick one up at the county clerk's office. Here's a list of county clerk's offices for Northern California.
