    Reverend Derek gave us our perfect ceremony!

    We can't begin to express how wonderful Rev. Derek was helping us with our wedding day ceremony from start to finish. From our pre-marital "education" to helping us with writing our ceremony vows and walking us through the steps. He was so easy to talk to, responsive and there for us every step of the way. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted and our favorite part of our wedding! We can't recommend him enough. Thank you Reverend Derek!

    Great experience with Rev. Derek Kiewatt

    My husband and I are an inter-faith couple (Muslim and Christian) and we loved working with Rev. Derek Kiewatt. He gave us a lot of resources to plan our ceremony and showed flexibility with our requests. I highly recommend hiring him :)

    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!
