I'm very flexible with the wishes of the couple. Whether you want the service long or short, funny, religious or non religious. I try to make it memorable without taking the spotlight away from the couple. I am a Christian minister but am able to officiate non religious ceremonies if the couple prefers.

I also offer pre-marriage and post marriage counseling options if the couple desires it. I'm culturally sensitive to the varying needs and traditions of everyone. I don't discriminate based on race, class, gender, age, sex, religion, etc.

I enjoy seeing the commitment and sacredness of love unfold. There is something magical and mysterious when two people become one. I want to honor that in the marriages I officiate.

Pastor Danny made our ceremony so special! He took the time to meet with us a few months prior to the wedding and made it a point to ask what we wanted out of the ceremony. It was important to us that our ceremony felt like it was about us vs a script and Pastor Danny made this happen.
We also had a meaningful premarital discussion and Pastor Danny gave us great advice on seeking out couples that can be mentors in the years to come. It was very evident that Pastor Danny valued his role in our wedding day. He was kind, personable, and even made the wedding guests laugh! Couldn’t have asked for a better officiant.

Danny was responsive, professional, sincere and an absolute pleasure to work with. He’s very experienced doing weddings and gave us some great ideas and made our wedding day so meaningful. We are an LGBTQ couple and he did a fantastic job representing us but making it comfortable for our conservative families. Highly recommend Danny!

Danny did an AMAZING job officiating our wedding. He and his wife met with us beforehand and really took the time to hear our story and understand our values. On the day of, we felt so supported throughout the process. He’s a greater speaker and the homily was perfect and spot on. Overall, Danny officiating was a highlight of our wedding and one of the things we were most grateful for.

Frequently asked questions

I start with a phone call to talk to make sure we are a match. Then I like to meet in person so that i can get to know the couple. It makes any words that I share in the ceremony more personal. I also help guide the couple through the details of the ceremony to ensure that it flows well.

I have two ordinations with two different denominations. I'm officially licensed to officiate weddings in several states including California. I received a Masters degree from Talbot Seminary in La Mirada, CA.
