Wonderful Wedding Officiant, An Eventective User from Jacksonville, FL

David was wonderful to work with and we are very happy with the service he provided. Very professional, helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

We loved working with David of River City Weddings, An Eventective User from Alameda, CA

My husband and I had a great experience working with David as our wedding officiant. He was recommended by our wedding planner and we were very pleased with his services throughout the entire process. David was super easy to work with, and this was especially appreciated since we were an out-of-town couple. We had an initial Skype video chat with David and immediately took to his easy-going nature and personality. We knew he’d be a great match as our wedding officiant, besides the fact that he’s officiated numerous weddings over the years. We worked with him to create a ceremony that was right for us – in our case, non-religious but with some cultural traditions. (He was able to provide a number of samples of weddings that he had officiated, and a resource about various wedding traditions which was interesting and useful. He also provided lots of useful resources around other aspects of the wedding and wedding planning, as well as info about obtaining the marriage license and name changing.) We did a fair amount of writing and editing of the wedding ceremony to get it just right and David was totally on board with all of our changes, which was great. David even created a beautiful marriage certificate for us, because the signed official document from FL is not so pretty ...and he also presented another surprise to us at our wedding which was a lovely keepsake. We really enjoyed working with David and highly recommend him!

Kind, personable.........., An Eventective User from Georgia

We were looking for someone who could marry us on the beach who would also make our important day memorable for us and our families. David provided us that and much more. He was willing to meet and accommodate our wishes and dreams for that special day. He provided a variety of wedding options to choose from and was very willing to personalize the ceremony to meet our needs. We would highly recommend David. He definitely went above and beyond what we were expecting from a wedding officiate. Beverly & Ralph

Great if you're coming from out of state, An Eventective User from Harrison

My husband and I are TN residents and decided to get married on Amelia Island. We found River City Weddings online. David Tagliaferri was fantastic to work with despite the distance. He's professional, friendly, and personable, and made planning our ceremony a breeze!

Everything I could have asked for in an officiant!, An Eventective User from Jacksonville, FL

David was great! He was easily accessible, flexible, and very helpful during the entire planning process leading up to the day of the wedding. The booklet he had for the ceremony details (vows, traditions, etc) made it very easy for us to choose exactly how we wanted our ceremony to go. David was always punctual and well prepared. He brought up details I would've easily looked over. We are so glad David was part of our special day! Thank you!

Absolutely Perfect, An Eventective User from GAINESVILLE, FL

We chose to have David as our officiant because of the options that he gave us for our ceremony and his price was great. He was very professional and easy to work with. Even though this is not his main job, he was extremely responsive to emails and always willing to meet us on a short notice. The ceremony was perfect, even though my groom jumped the gun a bit on the "I do". :) David made sure that the ceremony was exactly what we wanted and it was absolutely perfect! Thank you, David!

River City Weddings, An Eventective User from Jacksonville, FL

David Tagliaferri was wonderful! He really took the time to get to know us. His packages were wonderful for anyone who is already stressing out about a million other details. They were well laid out, and he left plenty of room for us to personalize the ceremony.

Absolutely loved our ceremony. David was great!

Couldn't have hired better!, An Eventective User from Jacksonville, FL

David was wonderful. He responded immediately to my initial emails, answered all questions throughly. He was incredibly flexible when it came to meeting me for a ceremony packet overview. On the wedding day, he showed up exactly when he said he would, not a minute late. We said 6pm, at 5:59 he arrived, traveling from a 4:30pm wedding located south of St Augustine. I was impressed with his professionalism and flexibility. Highly recommend.

He was perfect for our ceremony , An Eventective User from Jacksonville

My husband and I highly recommend David to perform your ceremony. He was punctual in his appointments, easy to understand, with a pleasant smile. He has a great presence and he is photogenic, too, so the officiant of your ceremony is attractive in your pictures! He takes his time and is willing to perform your ceremony as you would like. It is obvious to us that he enjoys performing ceremonies and takes pride in his work.

Best Wedding Officiant, An Eventective User from Jacksonville, FL

You cannot go wrong with choosing River City Weddings to officiate your wedding. My husband is Catholic and I am Jewish and we wanted to make sure our wedding was as nondenominational as possible, to avoid upsetting family members on either side. Our day-of coordinator recommended David at River City Weddings. From our very first meeting, my husband and I knew that David was exactly who we were looking for to marry us. David walked us through the options he had for ceremonies and had us pick how we wanted it to flow. We also were able to make as many changes as we wanted to the options David had. It didn't stop there. David also recommended a creative alternative to the unity candle called the Wine Box Ceremony. I had never heard of it before but our guests LOVED it and couldn't stop raving about how unique and sweet it was! He also let us borrow his personal arch from his own wedding ceremony, gave us a beautiful marriage certificate to frame, printed and bound copies of the ceremony and presented it to our mothers, answered legal questions I had about the marriage license after 10pm when we had an emergency situation, and made the entire process amazing. He truly went above and beyond for us and our families absolutely LOVED him. Choosing David to officiate our wedding was by far one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding.

Perfectly Beautiful Wedding, An Eventective User from Gainesville, FL

I planned our elopement on very short notice but David totally came through for us. He was flexible and professional but gave it a personal touch. The wording of our ceremony including prayers and a poem and was incredibly touching, moving, and simply perfect!

Best Officiant Ever, An Eventective User from jacksonville, FL

David (our officiant) performed a beautiful ceremony for us. He met with us several times and helped in every step of the way. Also, my wedding was unable to start until almost an hour and a half past the time it was supposed to and David had another wedding to perform elsewhere, but he stayed as long as he could (until my kids got there) and everything turned out great. I almost didn't walk down the aisle, but David was very helpful and understanding. If you are looking for an officiant, David is the best choice.

Very professional

Highly Recommend , An Eventective User from Fort Smith, AR

David is the perfect officiant. He promptly answered any questions we had before the wedding. He was very professional and courteous at the ceremony. Most of all he was patient, and walked a ways out with us on the beach so we could have a more private ceremony. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant.
