Letter of Reference for David Hildebrand

After searching and searching for the right person to perform our wedding ceremony, we met Pastor Dave. From the moment we met, we felt like we had known him for years. Dave performed our wedding ceremony on June 27th, 2015.

We can’t say enough good things about him. From his professionalism to exceptional speaking voice and sense of humor, he was truly exceptional! Our guests made a point to tell us what a beautiful job he did and how much they all liked him.

We highly recommend David Hildebrand! Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Pastor Dave,

We wanted to personally thank you for leading our wedding ceremony. We were getting compliments all evening. We were also glad that you took the time to celebrate our marriage with us at our reception. My relatives really enjoyed getting to know you more personally. I understand that you asked Shawn for a letter of recommendation. We would be more than happy to provide one! We’ll put something together and send it to your email so you can easily put it online.

All the best,
Emily Kelly-Gillingham


Pastor Dave,

Thank you so much for being a part of our special day and for marrying Eric & I. We have definitely made a new friend.

Jennifer & Eric Peterson


Pastor Dave,

Ron & I wish to thank you for taking the time to get to know us, thus, being a huge part of starting our new life & marriage. We loved the ceremony, your spirit, humor & patience. We look forward to talking with you for guidance into our futures.


Pastor Dave,

Thank you for your calm and professional approach that helped to sooth my nerves and make our wedding very enjoyable. Your ceremony was absolutely beautiful.

Thanks again,


Pastor Dave,

We really appreciate the letter you wrote to Wayne County stating that you did indeed marry us on April 14th, 2013. Never thought losing our marriage license would create such a problem. I’ll call down there in about 3 more weeks to get our certified copies. But my mother in law will be picking that up since we made it back home safely to Georgia! We can’t wait to send you a Christmas card. We thank you again for everything. And the copy of the “rose”… We were more than pleased with your service!

Thank you again sir Randi & James Van Horn


To Who It May Concern,

I have known Pastor David Hildebrand for almost one year, we have had more than one meeting and he was very friendly and professional. His mannerisms and characteristics made me feel that I have known him for many years. He is very knowledgable on many things and likes everyone to feel comfortable.

He never tried to push any religion on to me or my husband as we are not very religious people, but from our meetings with him we felt he was helping guide us. In recent months after our wedding we have decided to go back to church, we now feel that going helps with building a home and family together. I will continue to reach out to Pastor Dave for future obstacles I may face with work, home or family; I feel that I have found a life time confidant who will direct me in the right direction.

Pastor Dave was the officiant for my wedding and I have to say every single one of my family members and guest enjoyed Pastor Dave. He came on time and prepared for the rehearsal and he made sure that everyone knew how to walk and where to stand so that everything on the day of ran smoothly. On the day of the wedding he was very professional and had all of his own equipment to set everything up.

I would highly recommend him for an event, he will always be on time, make you feel comfortable and be prepared. He will stay in contact and make sure that you are feeling prepared for your big day. He will do whatever it is that you need him to do and he will do it well and with pride. He has stayed in contact with us to make sure we are doing well and to see how things are going.

Letter of Recommendation for Pastor David Hildebrand

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing to offer my unreserved recommendation for Pastor David Hildebrand, currently a wedding officiant in Metro Detroit, Michigan.

My husband and I first met Pastor David Hildebrand when he officiated our friends’ wedding we both stood up in as a bridesmaid and groomsman. When it came time to plan our wedding a few years later, we instantly thought of Pastor David Hildebrand and knew he would be the perfect person to officiate our wedding ceremony.

We had the difficult task of planning an out-of-state wedding (Chicago to Detroit). Our initial contact with Pastor David Hildebrand was by phone. He quickly provided all the information needed to make decisions regarding ceremony and costs. Pastor David was very thorough in guiding us through the planning of our ceremony. He was very flexible in working with us via e-mail and phone until we were able to meet with him in person.

As the bride, there were many things about Pastor David Hildebrand that stood out to me and helped make my day special. He did a wonderful job of taking charge at the rehearsal and was very clear in directing us through the ceremony. Also, he took it upon himself to bring a PA system on the day of the ceremony. Had he not brought this, many of our guests sitting in the back rows would not have been able to hear the ceremony clearly. Additionally, Pastor David has a calming presence that worked wonders in keeping me calm and steady during the ceremony and vows.

The ceremony itself was amazing beyond words. The ceremony was beautiful and elegant, and our guests marveled over how warm and intimate it was. The vows Pastor David wrote were simply beautiful and truly unique; a true reflection of my husband and me. We received endless compliments on his behalf from our friends and family.

We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding ceremony. Pastor David Hildebrand is a true professional and very passionate about his work, which was apparent to all. He was truly amazing to work with and made our ceremony the most memorable occasion.
