Damian was very willing to accommodate our requests. My husband and I were joining two religious backgrounds, a different, but still semi-traditional, plan was best for us. Our wedding was fairly small, approx. 35people, and was planned without a wedding coordinator. We completely relied on Damian to tell us the do's, the don'ts and the how-to's. He was quite helpful with the rehearsal, as well as on the day of, by guiding us through each step.

I heard about Damian from another couple who got married right after I became engaged. We are so lucky we found him! He's amazing and knows how to make what can be a very stressful time into so much fun! He put me at ease and was a natural at making the whole ceremony go smoothly, which was hard to do considering there were drums and fireworks going off from a festival right in the middle of our vows! We would recommend Damian to anyone looking for the perfect officiant!

Caring and compassionate officiant! We knew Damian was the right match for us from the initial meeting through his Foundation classes, until our wedding day. With each visit, phone call, and email Damian exhibited confidence & knowledge and made us feel as if we were a part of his family and not just another client. The comfort level we experienced was phenomenal! I encourage all brides and grooms-to-be to meet with Damian. I was pleasantly surprised and you will be, too.

We wanted a wedding that was fun and unique to us. We definitely got it! Damian took the time to get to know us, so that it felt like we were being married by someone we knew, not just someone we hired. We wanted to change a lot of things in a typical ceremony and truly make it our own. Damian was on board for all of it and the result was truly awesome. All of our friends and family made comments about how sweet, funny and personal our ceremony was.

We were so lucky and thankful to have Damian King as our wedding officiant for our ceremony July 7, 2012 at Dawes Arboretum. He walked us through the process beforehand and helped us tailor our ceremony to our wants and personalities. I felt like our ceremony truly reflected who we are as a couple. Damian was very organized for our rehearsal and was flawless during the ceremony, even though it was outdoors in 106 degree heat! I really liked how he kept both of us "cool" and calm during the ceremony.

Damian did a wonderful job with our service and was very professional during the whole process. My husband and I met with him well before the wedding so that he could get to know us and discuss the details of the ceremony. He sent us a script for the ceremony that we were able to review and personalize. Since we had a small wedding we didn't have a rehearsal but Damian did such a great job running the show and explaining the process that everything went very smoothly. Many of our guests complimented us on the uniqueness and intimacy of the ceremony. I feel that Damian genuinely cares about the couples he works with and went out of his way to make our day special.

We were very happy with United Marriage Services and Damian as an officiant. We had an introductory meeting where he got to know us as a couple and figure out what kind of ceremony we wanted. We wanted a mostly secular ceremony and he gave us an outline that we could personalize as much as we wanted. It was nice to have a structure so we weren't completely overwhelmed, but also have the ability to make it our own. At the rehearsal, Damian was great at making everyone feel relaxed and like they knew exactly what was going to happen. The guys liked having clear instructions on things like where to put their hands during the ceremony. We had an outdoor ceremony and Damian's voice was loud, clear, and projected the sense of happiness we wanted to be part of our wedding. Damian also handled all of the paperwork very quickly and efficiently.

We were lucky enough to have Damian conduct our June 16th wedding ceremony at the Ohio Statehouse and could not have been happier with the wonderful job he did. He smoothly ran our rehearsal, conducting the event in a calm and informative manner and had put together a clear outline of what our ceremony would entail. The day of the ceremony he checked in with my husband and I before the ceremony and was reassuring and comforting throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Damian and United Marriage Services for your special day if you are in need of an officiant!

Damian was a fantastic addition to our wedding day. We knew we wanted to personalize our ceremony and he really listened to what we wanted. He provided a lot of options for us to review and made any changes we requested. He was also extremely professional throughout the entire process and made the ceremony planning easy and fun. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Damian gave us a perfect ceremony. He met with us several times before the wedding day to get to know us and discuss how we wanted our ceremony. He gave us great ideas and had several options to personalize our wedding just for us. Damian also was very helpful during the rehearsal with helping us make decisions on what looked best and making sure things ran smoothly. Damian is an energetic and positive person which showed through in our ceremony. My wife and I had an amazing wedding and would highly recommend Damian for anyone that is getting married. Thanks again Damian!

My husband and I do not belong to a church and were not getting married in a church. I had been concerned about who would marry us - until I found Damian online. All of his previous reviews really encouraged me to reach out to him about performing our ceremony. He was so kind and very easy to talk to! He was extremely helpful and helped us put together a ceremony that worked PERFECTLY for both my husband (semi-religious) and me (not religious). Several wedding guests commented on how amazing Damian was and we couldn't agree more. He is very passionate about what he does and it definitely shows!

Damian was a wonderful officiant and I would recommend him to any of my friends or family. He speaks in a clear and distinct manner and makes sure everyone can hear him during the ceremony. Damian makes sure he gets to know you on a personal level before your wedding. I found this to be very important in choosing my officiant as I wanted the ceremony to be as special as possible. Thanks Damian!

My husband and I were delighted to have Damian as our wedding officiant. He was very friendly and professional and made us feel comfortable from the very beginning. Damian made our planning so simple and everything turned out perfect. He sent us sample vows and ceremony outlines that took the pressure off of us. He always took the time to respond to my emails and answered any questions that we had. I would recommend Damian to anyone who is in need of an officiant. He is very dependable and will definitely create a memorable experience.

Damian, thank you SO much for giving us the exact ceremony we were hoping for. Your willingness to tailor the ceremony to be personal to our tastes made the planning process wonderfully simple. In addition to how pleased WE were with the ceremony, we have received numerous compliments on having you as our officiant. You came highly recommended, and we will continue to recommend you to anyone that will listen. We also want to thank you for opening our eyes and hearts to your Marriage Foundations classes. They helped us open the lines of communication that are so critical to a healthy and happy marriage. Thank you so very much!

Damian did a fantastic job officiating our wedding. He was very helpful with combining the different facets we wished to incorporate into our vows. My husband & I come from different religious backgrounds and were not having the ceremony in a church b/c of that. We were both a little skeptical of hiring an officiant, me esp. as I always imagined the person marrying us would be someone we had known our whole lives. Damian took the time to get to know us throughout the planning process & it really showed come our wedding day. The day of the wedding went perfect. He conducted the ceremony in a very professional and friendly manner. He made us both very relaxed and calm, it definitely was not what we would have expected from an officiant service. We received many compliments on the ceremony and what a great job Damian did. We could not have been more pleased with how things turned out. We are very grateful to have found such a great person to conduct our wedding. Damian is very passionate about weddings and about the meaning of marriage and it shows through his work.

My husband and I were married last summer by Damian. While we are not youngsters, we still wanted our ceremony to be perfect. And it was! It was such a pleasure working with a fun, energetic professional, who was most concerned about what we wanted and the feeling that we wished to convey to our guests on our special day. Our ceremony was filled with humor and just the right amount of seriousness that our vows required. It was so much fun writing the script for our ceremony and Damian was very helpful in providing guidelines when needed. The service we received from Damian before, during and after the BIG DAY was superb from top to bottom, and we whole-heartedly recommend Mr. Damian King!

Damian was so great to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process. From the pre-wedding sessions to the rehearsal and all the way through the end of the ceremony, Damian was there to support us and make the day as special for us as he possibly could. He worked with us to construct our ceremony with readings and other small touches so that our ceremony was personalized just for us. The whole wedding was just perfect. It was everything we ever imagined and more! Damian is an excellent public speaker, great to work with, and above all else is a genuinely kind person. I am so glad that we were able to work with him for our wedding! I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is looking for someone to do an amazing job at performing their wedding ceremony!

Damian did a wonderful job with the whole process. Our ceremony had that perfect mix of seriousness to accompany the most important day of our lives, while still feeling relaxed and not stuffy. We also took his pre-marriage workshop, and unlike the stories I hear from all my friends about similar pre-marriage workshops / courses / counseling etc., it was full of practical advice of tips and things to do to keep our marriage healthy beyond the ceremony. I can't recommend United Marriage Services enough!

Damian King was such a pleasure to have as part of our wedding. He is caring and very understanding to our wishes throughout the planning process. His vocals were perfect and felt very sincere as he officiated us through the ceremony. Everyone kept telling us that our wedding, specifically the ceremony, was the best they have ever been to and seen. Thanks to Damian, we will cherish and remember our day forever! We would absolutely recommend him to anyone.

My husband and I are not religious, do not belong to a church, and did not want to get married in a church. That being said, we had no idea who we wanted to marry us. I began my search on the internet, which is where I found Damian. He performed our non-religious ceremony, and he was absolutely wonderful. He is a great speaker, genuinely kind and sweet, prompt, and very easy to work with. Our ceremony was very personal, as it was primarily focused on Jason and I's history/future, and I felt so comfortable with Damian pronouncing us as man & wife.

Damian was so amazing, he did a great job working with my fiancee and I from across the country! We live in Washington and he was so easy to work with and always responded to our calls or emails in a very prompt manner. He was congenial and very interested in how WE wanted our ceremony to be. He helped facilitate it but let us make all the decisions. We were extremely pleased with his services and would highly recommend him to anyone.
