FAQ

WHY DID YOU START WEDDING PASTOR DAVE?

I started WPD to provide exceptional wedding services for couples who are spiritual but not religious - couples who don't attend church on a regular basis and who don't know a minister personally. I feel that many churches are NOT very wedding friendly toward couples who don't attend their church. Click here for MORE.

DO YOU OFFER PREMARITAL COUNSELING?

Yes. Although we don't make it mandatory to marry a couple, we do highly recommend it. It will help prepare couples for the ups and downs of marriage. I personally think it provides for a better wedding ceremony as we get to know each couple that we counsel, which helps us personalize the ceremony even more. Click here for MORE.

DO YOU HAVE A VIDEO OF YOU PERFOMRING A WEDDING?

Yes, below is a link to two videos of Heather & Mark Russell along with CheVonne & Jaime Laurent. The first wedding was at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, CA & the
second wedding was at the Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu, CA. Click here for a VIDEO.

The marriage license may be obtained from any county in California. You can apply for your marriage license online (which I recommend) and then go down to the courthouse together to obtain it. Your marriage license is valid for 90 days prior to your wedding date. You are NOT required to get married in the county where you purchase the public marriage license; however, you must be married in California and you must file the license in the county where it was purchased. You can choose either a non-confidential or confidential marriage license. Click here for MORE.

HOW DO WE OBTAIN A MARRIAGE LICENSE?

WHAT IS YOUR PROCESS FOR BOOKING?

Begin by emailing or calling me to see if I am available (or one of my associates) on your wedding day. The next step is to set up a face-to-face wedding inquiry meeting at our office or at a local Starbucks - there is no charge for this meeting. The purpose of this meeting is to see if I am a good fit for you and your fiancée. If preferred, we can do this meeting via FaceTime or Skype. You can then book us by giving us a $100 deposit to hold your wedding date. This can be done via PayPal. After payment, you will receive a contract and recourses to help you with your wedding and we will schedule our next appointment together. Click here to CONTACT us.

HOW MUCH DO YOUR SERVICES COST?

We offer 3 options to choose from depending on the couples needs. The 3 packages include: Ruby, Emerald and Diamond. We aren't the lowest priced officiants out there nor are we the highest - we are somewhere in the middle. We believe that booking a wedding officiant is an investment in your relationship.

ARE YOU AN ORDAINED MINISTER?

Yes, all of our officiants are ordained and are able to perform any type of legally accepted ceremony. I also have many years of pastoral experience and many years of experience performing weddings. In addition, each of our pastors has a Master of Divinity degree, which is the standard degree for pastors. Click here for PASTORS.
