wedding ceremony right, roll the dice on a sure thing: HIRE Pastor David Barger! Danny H. 11-4-17

Words cannot describe how amazing Pastor David is at It's a Wonderful Life Weddings! He was absolutely wonderful in every
way and we could not be more thankful for him and his wife Elaine for making sure our wedding ceremony went off without a
hitch! Pastor David was incredibly personable, professional, funny and kind. He made us feel so comfortable throughout the
entire process! Our wedding was a beautiful success because of Pastor David!

My new wife and I had looked around for awhile to find a pastor to perform our ceremony. When we first met with Pastor David,
and his wife in their beautiful home, they welcomed us graciously and made us feel comfortable and, at home. They took the time
to get to know us, to understand what this day meant to us, and what he created in the ceremony was perfect. The highlight of the
entire experience was a couple of days later, when I was asked by a guest at our wedding who the pastor was and they
commented: "He (Pastor David) seemed like he really wanted to marry you two, it was almost like he was just as proud to be there
as you and your wife". I could not have described him any better. Thank you, Pastor David, for making our day even more special.

I contacted Pastor David about a specific ceremony which we wanted him to perform, researched it thoroughly and then wrote the
ceremony for me to review. He was prompt with communication, made changes easily, and did a wonderful job with our ceremony. I
would highly recommend him and It's a Wonderful Life to anyone looking for an officiant. Jais 10-9-17

We loved Pastor David! He did a great job catering to exactly what we wanted our ceremony to be like. Elaine was also a huge
help in organizing the processional. Great people and they are good at what they do! Sue 8-19-17

Pastor David was great! He was on time to the run through and he even came into the bridal room to chat with me right before the
ceremony started. He spoke with passion and clarity and kept the guests engaged. He was very flexible with what we wanted to
include - right up to the week before! And he was very relaxed with payment. I would definitely recommend him! Rebeca 8-12-17


Pastor David did an excellent job officiating my wedding. He went through the ceremony with us top to bottom well beforehand to
be sure that we were happy with everything. The ceremony was beautiful also a little different than what I'd heard from other
weddings, which made it more special.

Pastor David Barger and his wife were so amazing. We did a premarital session with them and they had such great advice to
share. Pastor David really formed our ceremony around our wants. He was a pleasure to work with and so kind. We would highly
recommend It's a Wonderful Life Weddings.

5 out of 5 stars. We really enjoyed meeting David and Elaine. They are lovely people who seem to enjoy their work. We felt very
comfortable with them and could immediately tell that they were competent and reliable. They both have a pleasant presence
about them. We were happy to share our special day with such nice people! Thank you for making the trip to the Arboretum. I'm
so happy that we were married in such a beautiful place.

"Pastor David Barger was extremely helpful and informational. He is so easy to talk to and has a great personality. We are very
happy and excited we chose him for our wedding. The ceremony he wrote for us is just beautiful and if we decided to change some
things around he is more than happy to do that so we get exactly what we want! Highly recommended! We can't wait until our
wedding!"
Amanda H. 2016

Pastor David married my wife and I at the place of our choice in less then a weeks notice. He was very organized and truly listened
to what my wife and I wanted. He made our small short ceremony so much less stressful and gave us everything we wanted and he
is very professional and arrived early to ensure everything was in order. His price is spot on for the quality of service he provides. I
would recommend him to anyone and everyone!!!!"

Pastor David Barger of It's A Wonderful Life Weddings did an excellent job with our small, non-denominational wedding ceremony.
We wanted a private ceremony for our close family and friends to celebrate our marriage. We raised in different faiths and do not
practice a common faith today so we asked for a non-denominational ceremony that would be rather short. Pastor David delivered
on all counts. He was professional and knew exactly what we were looking for. And when we had trouble with our music at the last
minute he even came through with music on this iphone for us!
Elaine C. 2016


We just wanted to tell you how much we loved your ceremony. We received lots of comments from almost everyone about how
great you were and we couldn't be happier with our decision to have you as our officiant. You only have one shot to get it right and
you nailed it, and for that we will be forever grateful. We will be referring everyone we know your way!

David did a great job accommodating our needs and the wedding ceremony was everything we wanted it to be! He does offer
religious ceremonies if that is what you want. We met with David a couple times before the wedding, once to discuss our needs to
see if he was the right fit, and the second time to do a premarital counselling session. David is not a licensed marriage therapist,
but he brought up great points for us all to discuss, which we found very beneficial. Overall, we had a very good experience with
David and It's A Wonderful Life Weddings. We would highly recommend him!
Kathryn,

From the moment we met David and his son Truemon, we knew they were the perfect fit for us. Truemon officiated our wedding
and did such a great job!!! He fit in so well with all of our family and friends; I felt like we'd know him for ever!!! Almost like he was
there as a friend. Such a great feeling. Would recommend Truemon to anyone!!
Lindsay,

We highly recommend Pastor David's services! We planned our wedding ceremony with Pastor David via Skype as we live in
Colorado but we were married in Kansas. Pastor David made this process seamless. He was very professional and made our
ceremony unique to our wishes. We've received tons of compliments from our wedding guests on how wonderful Pastor David's
ceremony was. We highly recommend Pastor David!!
Shawna and Ryan,

Pastor David is amazing! Very down to earth, easy to talk to,so passionate about his career and really easy to open up to and
laugh with. Our wedding isn't until next year but once we had a meeting with him we KNEW he HAD to be our officiant! Don't look
any where else! He will give you Amity W.

Pastor David Barger was a wonderful officiant! My husband's family is Catholic and I was raised Presbyterian, but neither of us are
practicing any form of Christianity. We wanted something religious and short. The pastor's "Catholic Lite" ceremony was perfect for
us! He quickly sent over a generic ceremony outline and we modified it to fit our needs. Pastor David is very passionate about his
work and it shows. I would highly recommend his service to any engaged couple!
Andrea R.

Pastor Barger was always kind and accommodating. My husband and I found him and his wife very pleasant to talk with. My
daughter and son-in-law wanted a very short wedding with no frills and he provided that very well. I appreciate the time he gave to
make their wedding the way they wanted it to happen. Thank you!

2 years ago we asked Rev. Barger to be the officiant at our evening fall wedding in Sedalia Missouri. There were specific things we
wanted, we had written our own vows to recite and we also wanted a hand fasting incorporated into the ceremony, and he was
more than accommodating with our requests and had a lot of helpful ideas to make our special
day just that, special. He was professional, on time and such a joy to have at our wedding. If we ever renew our vows David will be
the only one we ask to do it. We would highly recommend him.
Kristine C

David was super easy, professional, and fun!!! He tailored the ceremony to meet all of our needs. David's communication was
exacting and prompt with all changes, and he made sure all details were understood by all involved. During our day, he was
relaxed and in control. The whole bridal party knew exactly what to do, and he kept a lot of stress off of us!
Joshua B.

Reverend Barger officiated the wedding ceremonies for my daughter and my youngest son with compassion and expertise. We
were amazed at the many comments we received on how well he conducted each ceremony. I highly recommend David.
Dennis N.

David officiated our wedding in October of 2012. He really did listen to what we wanted for our vows and our ceremony and did a
wonderful job. He was able to keep things on track and it was great to have someone so knowledgeable officiate our wedding. I
highly recommend David and It's a Wonderful Life Weddings!
