    Fantastic experience!

    Reverend Derek was an absolutely pleasure to work with. We wanted an officiant who would be willing to get to know us as people so that they could best represent us during our ceremony, and that's what we got! The ceremony went off without a hitch, which is the most important part; perhaps our favorite part, though, was the premarital coaching. Rev. Derek came over to our apartment for a couple sessions, and it was so fun to see how my fiance and I responded to questions, different assessments, etc. And more than fun, it was meaningful. Rev. Derek was a great facilitator through it all and we are so happy we chose him!

    Experienced, personable, kind and has a great sense of humor!

    Rev. Derek is experienced, personable, kind and has a great sense of humor! He is also very flexible with the type of service you are looking for as he can easily transition from serious to humorous at your request. Based on these qualities, we booked him as our wedding officiant. He had great communication throughout the process and was always available for questions. Following our ceremony, many of our guests asked if Rev. Derek was a family friend, which we had felt like he had been. I definitely recommend Rev. Derek!

    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!
