    Dr. Dave Turner

    Ordained Minister

    I am an ordained minister, very conscientious, detailed oriented, and easy going. I love bringing smiles to people especially when it's a special day for them. I will perform your ceremony in ~ South Jersey.



    When I think back to the magical day when I got married (as you may see in my marriage picture on the beach, below), the officiant played a very important part. My desire is to give you the best possible wedding ceremony you could ever imagine. This is a serious business to me. To fulfill your dreams, we’ll have to communicate. I strive to make you happy and satisfied. As your dreams become reality, I hope you enjoy me as your officiant. Kathy, my wife, helps me with all aspects of officiating your wedding. Forget the rest, hire the best.



    We've officiated over 640 weddings in the past 6 years.


    Thank you for stopping by. We really appreciate your visit!

    "They say if you’re lucky you only get married once…well…I decided to do it again. On Saturday, February 11th, I registered my husband and I for a vow renewal ceremony at Laurita Winery in New Egypt. I should start the post by letting you know that we’ve only been married for 3 years. Four years ago when we were looking at wedding venues, Laurita Winery was high on our list. As appreciators of New Jersey wine, I loved the idea of getting married at a vineyard, however the venue was just not in our budget. To some, including my husband, it seemed super silly to get our vows renewed so soon. But when I saw the opportunity to do it at Laurita Winery for free I couldn’t pass it up. With our wedding song playing in the car (Foreigner’s “I Don’t Want to Live Without You”) we knew it was a good sign for the day! We arrived at noon and had some time to kill before the ceremony. Since it was Valentine’s Day weekend, the vineyard was hosting their “Wine and Chocolate Weekend”, so we sampled chocolate, tasted wine, and mingled with other guests. We also decided to share a bottle of their R2 wine, a sparkling white wine reminiscent of champagne. The ceremony was performed by Dave Turner, a great non-denominational wedding officiant. Together with 40+ couples , we stood together at our tables, held hands, and renewed our vows together. It was very beautiful. I loved the age range of couples, and seeing families who were celebrated together. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get emotional. Now we have a certificate as proof of our vow renewal and a day we’ll never forget. We also won a prize for the couple being married the shortest…which I thought was cute.

    Thank you to Laurita Winery and Dave Turner for a day we’ll never forget!"

    "Dave is awesome! Since we were kind of doing a last minute wedding planning, we had a lot of worries about it. Dave thoroughly explained all the details to us. Thanks to him we had a smooth and joyful experience of our special day! We are so glad to have him in our wedding."

    "Dave and his wife were so easy to work with! They came on time, got all of our paperwork out of the way with our maid of honor, and best man. The ceremony was sweet, and the perfect length. Dave incorporated an amazing poem at the end, that several guests gave compliments toward!"
