Don was the best! Lucky we found him from a friend of a friend who had him as their officiant. We had waited to the last minute to find an officiant because we aren’t religious and we didn’t know where to start. We really wanted a friend to marry us, but we didn’t know of who to ask. Lucky for us it was the one date he had available in the spring and summer still! I sent him an email asking about his availability and he immediately got back to me. We talked on the phone for a few minutes and I expressed how I’d like to have a short meeting with him and my fiancee. We set up the meeting the next day since he was in town for a meeting with another couple. He followed up quickly with the information we needed, and we set it up. Everything was smooth and easy! Just what a frantic bride needs. The wedding went off perfectly, Don was kind, courteous, and very likable! We had so many people tell us how much they loved our ceremony and what a great job Don did. Everything was perfect, thanks so much Don!! Highly recommend!!


From our first meeting with Don through our wedding day he made everything quick, easy and painless! He molded my and my husband’s love story together and created a fun story to tell at our wedding. He was extremely professional and such a pleasure to work with.” easy! Just what a frantic bride needs. The wedding went off perfectly, Don was kind, courteous, and very likable! We had so many people tell us how much they loved our ceremony and what a great job Don did. Everything was perfect, thanks so much Don!! Highly recommend!!


My now-wife and I searched high and low for a special officiant to be a part of our wedding. We had all the usual demands: Someone who was sharp and kind, professional, could cater to our special requests and make the ceremony unique, and of course affordability is a plus. it was obvious after speaking with him the first time that Rev. Don was exactly what a marriage officiant should be. He is incredibly responsive, usually responding to my email or texts before I could even put my phone back in my pocket. It made us both feel confident that we were a priority to him, and he remembers every detail while getting to know us as a couple in the months leading up to our big day. We sought pre-marital counseling with him as a foundation for our marriage, and it was immensely insightful. Rev. Don Toshach is a wise and gentle mentor and we’re so glad he walked with us leading up to our marriage. I highly recommend anyone get in touch with him to see what I mean, especially if you would like a stress-free ceremony that your guests will enjoy, as many of our guests complimented the voice of our astor (he’s also very entertaining behind a microphone if you want him to be!) Thank you, Reverend Don, for guiding us into a joy filled marriage!



Rev. Don was amazing! He was extremely flexible and communicative during the whole planning process. He returned my call within a day of me initially contacting him. My husband and I chatted with him for a bit so he could get to know us, which was very important to him and us as well. We also exchanged many emails to make the ceremony perfect for us. He drafted our ceremony program right away and included details about our history and love story and was extremely understanding and helpful with any questions or changes we had. Unfortunately, I lost my father a month before my wedding, which was devastating to me and my family, and Rev Don changed our ceremony program so he could say a few words expressing our love for him. Our ceremony was beautiful and personal, as every wedding should be! He really customized our ceremony to us and our relationship. I really appreciated his use of heartfelt vows or love notes that we were able to say out loud to each other. Every guest at our wedding said that was a great touch! I cannot recommend Rev Don enough. He was great and I cannot imagine having anyone else as our wedding officiant!


Don provided an exceptional service! We sent him some brief informatioabout our lives and he turned it into a very succinct and complimentary ceremony. He worked with us long distance from overseas for most of the setup. Don was extremely patient with us, taking time to speak over the phone and get every last detail perfect. He set up everything so well providing options for the service and advice on what exactly we could do, without being forceful about any one particular way. The day of the wedding Don made everything go incredibly smooth; it was such a relief to have someone with his experience and knowledge guiding us through everything. Absolutely recommend him to my friends and we will seek him out to renew our vows some years down the road.

2012 Bride's Choice Awards | Best Wedding Photographers, Wedding Dresses, Wedding Cakes, Wedding Florists, Wedding PlannersRev. Don did just an outstanding job as our officiant. True professional, very personable, and as genuine as it gets. Rev. Don was articulate, dependable (even with last-minute requests), and we felt he cared just as much as we did about how the wedding would go. Rev. Don set the perfect tone for our wedding and we could not imagine having anyone else. Very strongly recommended.

Aloha,
My wife and I just got back from our honeymoon in Hawaii. We just wanted to thank you for your wonderful performance at our wedding. Everyone kept complimenting us on how great the reverend was. Even our wedding videographers mentioned that you were one of the best officiants they’ve seen. If you ever need have anyone contact us as a referral for your business, please do not hesitate to ask.

We wanted a lot of creativity and flexibility when it came to our wedding ceremony and Reverend Don was the right man for the job! He has had so much experience and so much input to add that it definitely got the creative juices flowing. He was always prompt with e-mail and very friendly in person. It seemed like no matter what, he was very prepared. What he wrote for our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and unique but most of all, he captured who we were as a couple. I highly recommend Rev. Don and we could be contacting him again once we’re ready to renew our vows.

Don is awesome!!! The absolute best, you will not be disappointed!! I watched him at my friend’s ceremony, we hired him, and I will continue to refer him. So great!!

Alyson and Grant


Don was AWESOME! We felt so fortunate to have found an officiant that put so much effort and personal attention to crafting our ceremony so that it was personal and unique to us. We had our friends and family come up to us after the wedding to comment on how beautiful the ceremony was and how great Don was. He spoke to us and our guests like we were old friends, rather than wedding guests. My husband and I truly felt like our wedding was the most important thing to him in that moment. It was special, personal and truly a wonderful day.

Holly and Jeff


Don was amazing! We had a last minute falling out from our friend who was going to marry us and Don was more than willing to jump in and help us. We wanted a very non-traditional ceremony and he came up with more ideas and more creative aspects than we could 2011 Bride's Choice Awards | Best Wedding Photographers, Wedding Dresses, Wedding Cakes, Wedding Florists, Wedding Plannershave ever come up with on our own. Don did a lot of research to incorporate our Rockabilly theme into the ceremony and even went out to buy a pair of Converse to match the wedding party and an awesome bowling shirt to fit the theme (all his idea too!). Thank you, Don, you made our day extra special!

So we called Don randomly after finding him on Wedding Wire, and after speaking with him quickly on the phone I thought right away that he could be the perfect person to be the officiant for our wedding. Conversation was great, and he sounded like a good person, with a good voice…. and he even seemed like he cared and loved what he does. We wanted to meet him in person, and he chose a place halfway between where we both lived to make it more convenient for us. We met him, liked him, hired him. Leading up to the wedding, he worked closely with us, very patiently and with lots of ideas and suggestions on how to create the perfect ceremony specifically for us as a couple. On the day of, he was more than on time, ready to go and excited. He was professional, yet able to hold a crowd’s attention with an appropriate sense of humor. He was the perfect man for the job! Thanks again Don!

Rev. Don Toshach was our officiant for our wedding in April 2011. We were more than satisfied with his service. We had many compliments for how our ceremony turned out. Rev. Don definitely made our day special with his preparation and technique. While looking for an officiant, we had the opportunity to interview a few officiants. Although we liked all the officiants, we felt more comfortable with Rev. Don because he actually took the time to read our wedding website before our meeting to try and get to know us. He takes the initiative to build a relationship with the couples that he marries. He is very thorough and responds quickly to your messages. He’ll go out of his way to customize your wedding and make it unique. I strongly recommend to at least give him a call and setup an initial meeting.

Donny and Tessa


Don,
Thank you SO much for everything…from the guidance you gave us to the perfect ceremony! Everyone that we have talked to since the wedding has expressed to us how perfect our ceremony was and how well it fit us. That is thanks to you for making it all happen and flow together smoothly! 🙂 We had an amazing day that we’ll remember and cherish forever. Thank you for helping to make those memories for us. The whole day (and all the days leading up to it) is just what we had pictured in our minds. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

Don,
We wanted to share with you an experience from a wedding we went to last weekend it was the same Pastor from the wedding we told you about from awhile ago, that talked about divorce rates and how you don’t know someone until you marry them all that crazy stuff, well he did another wedding last weekend and talked about the Russians in how a Russian bride was killed and how her groom wouldn’t leave her side he also said how the USC Trojans lost that day and how it upset him… just a lot of crazy stuff so we wanted to say THANK YOU! We still get comments on how beautiful our ceremony was and we just loved how everything went and we just really appreciate you as our Reverend, so thank you again.

Samantha and Tom
