What couples say about David…
Thank you so much for the lovely ceremony you did for us. Throughout the entire day we were told over and over how amazing out ceremony was and how emotional & powerful it was.
We have a very diverse background and are not religious people but we do believe in faith, family and togetherness. David helped us create a beautiful wedding ceremony that incorporated our backgrounds and our values. We were able to personalize a ceremony that was inter-religious, unique and very memorable. David was there for us whenever we needed him.
Morgan and Micah
David worked closely with us to create a ceremony that was personal and meaningful. And with his calm and confident demeanour, he put us at ease on the day itself, when our emotions were at their peak. David’s words were inspirational to us as a couple and to our guests. David took the time to get to know us and it showed in our very personal ceremony. Thank you David.
Judy and Gord
David was able to help us create a beautiful personalized wedding ceremony. My husband and I didn’t want a long traditional ceremony and David respected that. It didn’t take him long to find out that we enjoy a good laugh and our ceremony was tailored to be a relection of that. Friends and family have told us it was one of the most personalwedding ceremonies they had ever attended. We laughed, we cried, we loved!! Thanks again David.
