PRAISE FOR DC&C OFFICIANTS
"LD made our ceremony MAGICAL. She is unlike any other officiant.
This is her passion and purpose and it shines through so clearly in her work. All of our guests were blown away by the ceremony and continued to praise LD and ask about our relationship with her because they were so impressed and felt the LOVE. We are beyond grateful to Lynda for the time, love and effort she put into crafting our ceremony and getting to know us as a couple. We love you and could not sing higher praises!!!

"To say that Lynda Daring (also known as LD) is amazing is an understatement!!!
She takes the traditional bland ceremony usuals and turns it into a very personalized, special ceremony that left our guests complimenting our ceremony the entire night. My husband is very shy, and she made him so comfortable and brought him right out of his shell - please understand THAT IS A HARD THING TO DO !!! There is an extremely special twist she puts on the ceremony that I won't mention here as it is meant to surprise your guests, but make sure they pack the tissues!! I am so grateful we got to experience it!! We spent the majority of our evening after the wedding discussing it, and man, did it bring us that much closer - something I didn't expect as I thought we were close as can be. We had the ceremony of our dreams!!!! Most of our guests were married couples, and they gushed over how amazing and unique our ceremony was - that should tell you something !! Thank you, LD, for being such an amazing and special part of our big day !!! Bryan and I can't thank you enough !!!!

"The DCC team takes time to get to know you as a individuals and a couple and incorporates that into every aspect of the ceremony."
"We were fortunate enough to find Daring Celebrations, Linda and our officiant Jennifer honestly by chance of "googling" celebrants in our area. As a gay couple creating our "non-traditional" celebration, the minute we met Linda and then virtually with Jen, we knew not only did we identify the right team to marry us, but also enhance our wedding and overall experience. The team takes time to get to know you as a individuals and a couple and incorporates that into every aspect of the ceremony. Jen, our officiant was gracious enough to work with us to develop just the right ceremony for us to represent our lives, family and future! I believe that if you asked any of our family members, friends - our guests, they'd agree how unique, personal and special our Spooktacular Halloween Wedding was. A large part of that was the personalized ceremony and inclusion that it represented."

"Our wedding ceremony was nothing short of a dream
- LD and Daring Celebrations took the time to get to know us as a couple and individually, she took our fairy tale and told it back to us in a way that made us (and our guests) both laugh and cry. There is not a single thing that we would change about our ceremony, and we will relive it for the rest of our lives!"

"We could not have imagined a more perfect day or a more perfect ceremony.
From the moment we met LD we knew she would be able to capture us and make our day special. What we were not expecting was how she was able to peek inside our relationship and personalities and highlight unspoken insights about us that she picked up in our conversations with her. She had us, and everyone attending laughing and crying. We heard from so many of our guests saying "this was the best wedding they had ever been too!" As we reflect back, we realize now that one of the true blessings of that day was having a new dear friend introduce us as husband and wife. If you want your wedding to truly be blessed like ours, we couldn't recommend a more energetic, enthusiastic, and beautiful soul as LD."

YOUR CEREMONY IS WHAT MATTERS MOST
You will be surprised at how much FUN it can be to design your ceremony
once you realize your preferred tone and individualized style.
These officiants are so much fun to work with!
The self-realization that the music, the food, and the photos
are not the only elements to consider on your wedding day as critical,
you quickly realize that your ceremony is what matters most!
-it sets the tone for the entire day!
It sets the tone for your entire married life!
As you work together with your appointed officiant, the excitement quickly sets in as you drill down the order of things, easily realize how you want to profess your vows and relay your love story.
That is the moment you know...
that your guests will remember the ceremony,
and not what they ate...
or what colors the wedding party fashioned that day.
Give your uncle or your best friend the day off and let someone from the team present your love story. Let your officiant do it the right way on your day!
So...what are ya thinking so far?
Drop us a line-we can't wait to hear from you!
what people say
"Daring Celebrations is a FAMILY.
LD invited us to her home and prepared a meal for us as we discussed our plans for our wedding. Nothing was even set in stone yet but she was already investing in our relationship. Our officiant Jennifer encouraged us to write our own vows and to step out of our comfort zone. It made all the difference in the world. Our ceremony was SO SO personal and intimate to us. We will never forget the experience. They are the best in the business folks. True professionals."
