Reverend Kiewat obviously Loves performing weddings. He arrived early to the ceremony, we went through the music cues for my song, piano music, discussed the best musicians set up in the room, and the ceremony order details. He then spent extra time reviewing cues with the couple & the wedding party children to ensure everyone was comfortable with all aspects.The wedding was touching and went beautifully!
I have known Derek for years. Rest assured, knowing that he will not only be early, be professional and take care of everything, but that you will receive a one-of-a-kind ceremony service your guests will rave about! You deserve a ceremony that is meaningful and funny. When it comes to your ceremony, besides saying "I do," hiring Rev. Kiewatt is the best decision you can make!
