About Minnesota Reverend

I'm the Reverend Derek Kiewatt. I've been performing unique and memorable ceremonies for over 40 years. Even after all that time, and so many wonderful couples, I'm still excited about officiating and love being part of this very special moment in people's lives. Couples have said I've found the perfect balance of warmth, relevance, humor, and professionalism. The weddings I help create reflect the beauty and romance of the occasion, while being light-hearted, down-to-earth, and meaningful.

    When my wife and I planned our wedding, we quickly realized, that we had a language problem. As my parents speak little English, and my wife's family no German, we where afraid we could not have the wedding we wished for. Fortunately, we found Reverent Derek, who supported us with a very beautiful, bilingual ceremony, that helped both of our families feel included. Derek has a warm and open nature, and is easy and fun to work with. He also has a lot of good stories at hand to prepare you for your special day the easy way. We thank Derek for his service, and would highly recommend him.

    Easy and personalized wedding experience

    Working with Reverend Derek was such a great experience! He provided us with a ton of resources so we were easily able to personalize a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted. He has many options, both religious and secular so we had no problem finding ceremony elements that worked for us. Throughout the entire process, he was incredibly responsive and flexible which helped relieve stress rather than add more. Any time we had any questions or concerns, he immediately responded to our emails and offered to meet in person if needed. Overall, Reverend Derek was a huge reason our wedding so smoothly.

    Working with Reverend Derek was one of the best choices we made for our wedding day! We were referred to Derek through our wedding planner, and knew from our first meeting with him that he was the right choice. He is a wonderful blend of humor, experience, calm, and confidence as an officiant. He is comfortable with a variety of wedding ceremony styles (we did a combination of traditional, with some Jewish elements, but overall not a strongly religious ceremony) and was receptive to everything we asked of him, and if we were not sure how to approach a topic, Derek provided us wonderful options and selections of vows and other readings and elements for the ceremony. The premarital education was also very insightful and he helped us discover many unique elements about us as individuals, how we related to each other, how we saw ourselves, and how we viewed each other, that we will be able to take with us in our married life. We enjoyed our time planning and learning with Derek, and are so grateful he was a part of our ceremony.

    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!
