Rev. David Schaal, Wedding Officiant
Welcome and Thanks for Visiting!
I am a relaxed and creative person, with a full time day job in technology. I love to tell stories and meet people, especially on their most wonderful and happiest day. I am experienced with a wide variety of settings, locations, and ceremony stules. I would love to perform weddings or commitment unions for any couple, and, of course, gay weddings. I am flexible and perform Christian, interfaith, and non religious ceremonies. Helping people celebrate the start of a life together is a wonderful thing and I draw joy from each opportunity.
I have performed weddings with between 4 and 250 people in attendance. My ceremonies have ranged from formal and traditional, to informal and relaxed and everything in between. I have done Hawaiian, Renaissance and other themed weddings as well as a bi-lingual English/Spanish wedding. Each of my ceremonies is a celebration.
A closely held secret about me, and please, do not divulge this to anyone, is that I AM Santa Claus. Yes, The Santa Claus. The job is seasonal though, so most of the year I am busy with weddings, various technology projects, and keeping track of kids' deeds. I am telling you this so you know that I always have a heard. In late November my beard is long enough to board the sleigh, so I bleach it white for the month of December. In January I return to normal, a short beard... two toned for a couple of months. The rest of the year it is reddish as in most photos. From January through August my hair is short but the beard keeps growing. Come August, I also let my hair grow, so I can be ready for the next Christmas season. I would not normally share my secrets but, knowing that I might be featured in your wedding photos, I want you to know what to expect when you hire Santa!
So, assuming I am a good match for your celebration, I look forward to helping you design and then performing the right wedding ceremony for you!
Like the rest of the ministers at Fab Weddings, I pledge to work with you to design what you want for your wedding. It is all about you, your love, and your sharing it with your community of family and friends.
