Reverend Dayna Reid
Dayna Reid, Bestselling Author and Minister, currently resides in the greater Seattle area. She received her credentials to marry people in Feb of 1999, when she decided she wanted to be able to provide this service to friends and family. The first wedding she performed in April of 2000, was for a family member who was unable to locate an Officiant who would perform the ceremony on April 1st (April Fool's Day). She performed their ceremony, and they are still happily married today.
Dayna is a spiritual person, but not religious. Therefore, she does not belong to any particular religious denomination. She believes that "everyone has to find their own way in this world, including any beliefs they may have about the unknown. Because truly, all we really have is a faith in what we believe to be true."
Because of Dayna's belief in individualism, "the service I provide is focused on creating a ceremony of commitment that uses words that are most familiar and meaningful to the couple making the promise."
"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away." ~Henry David Thoreau
Pastor Harvey Buck
Harvey Buck, became an ordained minister in 1990 and served as head pastor of a small church in Burien, WA for many years.
Within a week of his ordination, he officiated his first wedding for a close friend in their backyard with only 2 other people in attendance, one of them being the grooms’ daughter. Harvey got to officiate the wedding of that same daughter 22 years later!
Harvey believes that love is the essence and reality of all true faith and that marriage can be the greatest expression of that love on earth. He works with each couple to cultivate an environment on your wedding day unique to your individual styles and beliefs, giving you complete freedom to have the ideal wedding ceremony you have envisioned.
"The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, Not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere, They're in each other all along." ~Rumi

"Two are better than one, for they have a good reward for their work. If they fall, one will lift up the other." ~Ecclesiastes 4:9-10a
