Daniel is ready for any scenario with over 20 years of professional ministerial experience. Holding dual standing as a Baptist pastor and American Protestant minister, he is authorized to perform wedding ceremonies in all 50 states and the U.S. territories. Unlike a local justice of the peace or an officiant with an online ordination, Daniel holds two theological master's degrees as well as the Doctor of Ministry, preparing him to handle any eventuality with grace, humor, and style.
In 2021, Daniel officiated weddings at Chapel in the Pines in Sycamore, IL and the Rookery Building (Burnham and Root, 1888), which Frank Lloyd Wright famously re-worked (1905). Other recent locations include Battell Chapel at Yale University (New Haven, CT), an apartment unit in Park Slope (Brooklyn, NY), Forest Park in St. Louis, MO, and Rock Ridge Country Club (Newtown, CT).
N.b., If marrying in NYC or any locality in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, please allow additional time for Daniel to register the wedding ceremony in that locality. At least one month lead time is advised.
Protocol on weddings outside the corridor of the NYC and Boston Metro areas: Kindly contact Daniel to discuss transportation, lodging, and per diem before booking with him. He'll be happy to accommodate but just wants clarity before agreeing to anything.
