"Danny performed an amazing wedding ceremony for us!! We chatted initially on Zoom and right away I knew he was the right person to marry us. We appreciated that he gave us an initial draft of our ceremony and it was clear that he spent considerable time writing a ceremony that reflected our personalities, our love for each other and our journey together.


On the day of our wedding the ceremony was just beautiful! Danny's warmth and sense of humor brought many smiles from family and friends. Many said it was the best wedding ceremony they'd been to. I highly recommend Danny!

"Danny Lewis was beyond exceptional in officiating a 'Celebration of Life' event for me, my family, and 175 guests.  It was a highly emotional event, and Danny was stellar in knowing how to put his focus into ensuring that everything ran smoothly and that everyone felt comfortable and welcome.

After initially meeting with him, he asked questions and actively listened to my expectations.  He proactively reached out to those that I wanted to speak, so he could have each guest individually prepare something meaningful to say.  Danny removed a significant burden off my shoulders by knowing how to organize and facilitate this event.  I was too overwhelmed even to know what to ask him.


It was evident from the get-go that Danny is highly sensitive, possessing a great deal of emotional intelligence, compassion, and empathy, a genuine pillar of strength.  Danny is well-spoken, a great listener, and intuitively knows how to infuse humor, when necessary, to break the tense moments, allowing everyone to take pause and enjoy the unity of storytelling.

He prepared a beautiful tribute, explained clearly how the service would play out, allowing space for each person to share their own stories. Danny showed interest in each presenter and showed that he genuinely cared. The result was a wonderful celebration, and it provided much-needed closure to my family and friends.

Through the process of working on our event, Danny was extremely prompt in responding to emails and his turn around time on revisions/back and forth was very impressive.

The event went flawlessly; I was delighted with how he delivered the ceremony to my guests, and afterward, the guests were raving about how much they loved the event because of its unique and personal touches. Some even said, "I have never been to a more personal, uplifting, and meaningful celebration before!"

Having Danny be my officiant was one of the best decisions I made, and I HIGHLY recommend him for any type of event.  His compassion and innate ability to make every individual in the room feel special, speaks volumes."

"I was moved and impressed by the remarkable manner in which Danny Lewis took charge of the Memorial service. So moved, in fact, that I will never forget it, and would ask Danny to perform a Memorial for me, when the time comes. Danny is a great listener, has compassion and curiosity, a phenomenal memory, and the ability to reflect back his experience and the words he hears - accurately and passionately.  I can think of no better person to act as a celebrant or officiate important life events with the care, precision, and attention that they deserve."

I want to Thank You again for your services for Dana and Jon's wedding. YOU made this day so perfect! I was initially upset because they were not getting married by a priest, but I have to say YOU made it easy for me to overcome this obstacle. I really appreciate all the work you put into this to make sure their ceremony was perfect. It was like you have known them forever. God was sure looking out for us by sending you to officiate for them. Thank you again.

- Irene Helton (mother of bride)
