Rev. Dalton embodies a rich combination of Irish depth, charm, wisdom, and humor. In addition to being a seasoned speaker, he is often described as “charismatic and naturally compassionate.” He delivers ‘priceless’ ceremonies from the heart. He is knowledgeable and experienced with wedding ceremonies that represent different faith traditions.
His philosophy, “A Wedding is a Day – A Marriage is a Lifetime” is demonstrated over and over again by the testimonials that he continues to receive year after year from happily married couples.
How the wedding ceremony unfolds, and is facilitated and celebrated should not only touch the bride and groom in their defining personal moment but also the lives of all who are present. We continue to hear from family and guests on a regular basis, “We were elated and grateful to have been at this wedding, to support the bride and groom as they begin their journey as husband and wife, with our love, and that our own relationships have been touched and deepened from the ceremony and the words spoken by Rev. Dalton.”
Rev. Dalton was born and raised in the West of Ireland. He has years of seminary training and is ordained. Rev. Dalton does not officially represent, nor is he delegated by any denominational tradition, including his own. Rev. Dalton is the current president of Sonoma Valley Ministerial Association that has 18 active members, representing numerous faith traditions.
He is also a graduate of Tulane University, New Orleans and holds a Board Certified License in Couple and family Therapy. He is highly skilled and sensitive to the special dynamics with a newly blended family, especially with children from former relationships. He can offer specific marriage preparation sessions.
Rev. Dalton’s fundamental spiritual belief is that every person is the clearest reflection of the Divine in the world.
