Professional Wedding Officiant/Minister
Rev. Dan and his fellow ministers of All Faiths Weddings create and perform joyful, meaningful, and personalized Catholic, Nondenominational and civil wedding ceremonies for people of all religious backgrounds, whether the bride and groom be Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, Eastern, any other faith, or no particular faith. Serving couplesin love from any religious or spiritual background or those without any particular background is the primary mission of our group of wedding celebrants. Our officiants are also available for LGBT weddings in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.
God has blessed each couple with the gift of love, and that love overrides other factors such as specific religious background, or the bride and groom being of different faiths, or whether either has been married before. All are welcome! The emphasis of our ceremonies is love and joy.
Have your wedding the way you want it!
"Your wedding day is a celebration of your love and deep friendship, and we do everything possible to ensure your personal wishes are respected, honored, and celebrated in your ceremony."
Rev. Dan and his wedding minister colleagues do not require pre-marriage counseling, but they will provide this if it is requested. Sometimes engaged couples who are not active members of a Christian congregation or a Catholic parish community find that religious leaders will not officiate unless certain rigid conditions and restrictions are met. The All Faiths Wedding Ministers reject noone and welcome all couples. Some church communities have rigid 6 month waiting periods, monthly counseling sessions, dogma and extreme ideologies that make it practically impossible for anyone to be married, have their children baptized, or even have a funeral to bury their family members in a church. We do not have these harsh, rigid, and inflexible religious rules and regulations as a prerequisite for pastoral ministry. There is no six month waiting period or required counseling classes for marriage as required by many of the mainstream denominations. Everyone is welcome! If couples wish to have counseling, we can provide referrals for this service.
To help couples plan their ceremonies, our ministers offer brides and grooms a ceremony workbook that allows them to select ceremony texts and assists them in writing their own ceremonies. When the atmosphere and words of a wedding ceremony personally reflect the love the bride and groom feel for each other, the ceremony becomes a powerful beginnng of their new life together.
"With thirty years of experience as a wedding officiant, I will ensure that your wedding celebration will be a very memorable one. A wedding ceremony that builds on the values of your past and looks to the future will speak personally and eloquently to you, both at the time of your wedding and throughout your life together."
All pastoral services provided!
Rev. Dan is also available to officiate baptisms/christenings, Quinceañeras, house blessings, funeral services, funeral memorials, and graveside services.
The marriage laws of the District of Columbia require a three day waiting period. Maryland has a 48 hour waiting period. In Virginia there is no waiting period and you can be married the same day. You will need a copy of your driver's license along with the fee and application for whichever state Circuit Court you decide to apply.
