Abundant Blessings Wedding Officiant
Fr. Dave and Abundant Blessings Wedding Officiant works with each couple to make your ceremony personal and meaningful. Through years of working with couples Fr. Dave has gleaned from experience wedding traditions including the lasso/lazo, arras/wedding coins, Unity Candle, Sand Ceremony, Heart Lock Ceremony, Rose Ceremony, Rose to Mary ceremony, and others. It is very common to have blended families with small children involved, and including them is important to the parents who are marrying. Fr. Dave welcomes same-sex couples as he believes marriage is a civil right and not a privilege.
Especially encouraged to investigate Abundant Blessings are couples who wish an interfaith (sometimes called "non-denominational") or a catholic wedding but have been prohibited in their churches by a divorce, children, cohabitation, or non-membership. Many couples wish an outside Catholic wedding and with Fr. Dave is it possible to have a Catholic wedding. It is his own spiritual journey that has allowed Bishop David the sensitivity to work with couples of various backgrounds and religious traditions who truly wish to incorporate their own cultural traditions and values in their special ceremony. Many couples wish an interfaith wedding or a religious wedding with Catholic highlights; these might include the Sign of the Cross, blessing of the rings with Holy Water, and/or a Communion Service. As an ordained catholic priest Fr. Dave respects the value of spiritual and religious traditions couples want to incorporate in their weddings, and is sensitive to balancing the desires of both parties in the wedding couple.
No one is left out, however, because couples who wish a non-religious ceremony work with Fr. Dave to bring their own special traditions and desires into a ceremony they are happy to invite their friends, family, and co-workers to attend. Sensitivity to the couple's needs and desires is more important than any adherence to a specific religious or spiritual philosophy.
Fr. Dave was nominated as Best Officiant in the 2013 Perfect Wedding Guide Bride's Select Awards.
