I'm Dale Amundsen (MDiv), known as Chaplain Dale.  I do weddings.  I've conducted nearly 2700 personalized wedding ceremonies throughout Washington state.  Perhaps I'd be a good match for you and yours.  Unusual locations are a specialty.  I work with couples to get to know them and what they're looking for in their ceremony.  Together, we craft a ceremony your guests will love and you'll be proud of.  When you have one chance to get it right, trust someone with experience, genuine credentials and the ability to make your ceremony dreams come to life.
