Dave Kanaszka

My name is Dave Kanaszka and I am the owner of Celebrations24. Since our inception October 16, 2005. I have been owner, CEO, DJ/MC and lighting tech for the last 15 years and now have taken the next step. I have worked a ton of weddings as a DJ and have now added Officiant to my personal resume. Making this transition into the officiant side of the wedding business is only natural. After watching and playing music for 15 years worth of beach weddings, park weddings, venue weddings, etc, trust me… I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to the performance of the officiant! I am taking all of this experience and knowledge and cherry picking all the good and eliminating all of the bad and the ugly to make your wedding special and memorable.

I will work with you to create the script to meet your requests, run your rehearsal if needed and then preside over a beautiful ceremony that you will remember the rest of your lives. I can add humor, religion, cute stories, Bible verses or readings… whatever you think will fit your idea of a perfect wedding celebration.

I am available to officiate your big day anytime… weekdays, weeknights or weekends. You name it, I’ll be there!

Let’s chat a bit either on the phone, in person or via zoom and let’s get started on your wedding today!
