Great Experience!

Rev. David officiated our wedding. He was so great and easy to talk to! We did a destination wedding so didn’t know anyone in the area to officiate, but when we found A Wedding in Paradise we hit the jackpot. Rev. David was excellent at making our ceremony feel intimate and personal with only knowing us for a couple of days. I would certainly recommend him to anyone getting married in the Hilton Head area.

Literally 'A Wedding in Paradise'

Pastor David was exactly the officiant we were looking for. So easy and pleasant to work with. The ceremony was so beautiful and touching. HIs words and prayers gave us a touch of God's blessing to our lives. Thank you Pastor for pronouncing us husband and wife

Do yourself a huge service and book Rev. Dr. David Leininger!

Working with Rev. Dr. David Leininger was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! He is charming, thoughtful, funny, eloquent, and so easy to work with! My husband and I got married in November 2021 at Palmetto Bluff. We were getting married on-site and looking for an officiant to travel to us. We had a few suggestions from the team at Palmetto Bluff, but thanks to fate, they were booked. We ended up getting referred to Dr. Leininger, and he was an absolute pleasure from the start. He works with you to customize the ceremony to fit you as a couple. From vows to readings, he provides guidance but leaves the decision completely up to you. If my husband and I were honest, we would have told you that we saw our ceremony as the step before the real party, but our experience couldn't have been further from that expectation. Dr. Leininger created the most beautiful, personalized, and intimate ceremony that ended up being our most favorite part of the day (and don't worry! He did all of this in the ~25 minutes we asked for). Afterward, guests came up to us to ask if he was family or if we had just known him forever. Neither! But he takes the time to make it feel that way. Do yourself a favor and book him! Early!

10/10 from Rev. Dave!

Rev. Dave was such an absolute pleasure to work with in officiating our October wedding in Sea Pines! He is always available to contact with any questions leading up to the big day, as well as open to meeting in person and getting to know you! We could tell immediately that he was going to be the perfect officiant for us. He took the time to get to know us personally and add those personal touches to our ceremony. He also gave us the freedom and flexibility to personalize the ceremony to reflect who we are, while still keeping the formalities of a wedding. Rev. Dave brought comedy, laughter, joy, some happy tears and a warm smile to our ceremony and we can't possibly say enough good things!! I hope you get to experience his magic for your own wedding!! Thanks a million, Rev. Dave!!

Highly Recommend

Dr Leininger brought humor and joy to our ceremony. The process for selecting a custom ceremony was so much fun for us but David didn't just read the passages we had selected, rather he added his own touches that created an extra special moment for us to enjoy. His humor and passion for our blossoming love and new marriage were apparent and he truly created the perfect ceremony for us. Thank you Dr Leininger!

Such a Pleasure to Work With!

David was such a pleasure to work with for our wedding ceremony officiant. He was so responsive and quick to get back to us from the minute we first reached out. He even made time for us to meet him in person prior to our ceremony when we visited Hilton Head for some final wedding planning details a month prior to our destination wedding. The process for selecting how you want your ceremony done makes it so much easier as well. We had at least a dozen or so guests ask if we had written our own vows. That was how personal his message was. Definitely worth the hire if you want someone who is going to make your wedding ceremony feel like he's known you your whole life. He even printed out our vows for us to have a hard copy to read each year on our anniversary. 100% recommend hiring David if you are looking for an incredible wedding ceremony that is both personal and intimate.

A great big thank you for David who exceeded our expectations as our officiant. We met over the phone during some trying times and had a wonderful conversation that led to an outstanding experience for our ceremony. He was also extremely accommodating and responsive to any questions we had pre and post wedding. Thank you very much!

Highly recommend

Despite a pandemic and a lack of planning on my part. Our wedding was perfect. I had called a few people but the first time I spoke with David, I knew he was who we wanted. He's very personable and makes it feel very comfortable. Highly recommend.

Above Our Expectations

I knew from our initial contact that David Leininger would perform a wonderful ceremony for our daughter and son in law. He completely went above our expectations! He is so personable and down to earth. We had so many comments from the guests that he was a true delight to listen to. Thanks so much for making our day even more special!

David did an outstanding job!

David did a fantastic job walking us thru the website and choosing our vows. Also his website was critical in finding out what we needed to get married on the beach. Overall my wife and I would highly recommend using a wedding in paradise!
