Great flexibility due to COVID
Rev. Keaton was supposed to be our officiant on our original wedding day of March 21, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency in Bethesda. It was a beautiful venue and we were expecting 130 guests. Unfortunately, due to restrictions that were put in place due in COVID in March, we were forced to cancel our wedding at the venue. Rev. Keaton was very flexible and accommodating, and allowed us to keep her as our officiant for our newly rescheduled date, which was June 27, 2020. We cut down our guest list from 130 to about 12. We had just a small outdoor ceremony on my parents' enclosed deck. We practiced social distancing, and all of our guests wore masks. Rev. Keaton did a beautiful job on our new wedding day, and we would recommend her to anyone that is in need of an officiant. Whether your ceremony has 130 guests or 12, you will be in good hands.Sent on 07/01/2020
I Wed You's reply:Thank you thank you Christian! I appreciate your feedback. It was an honor to serve you. Rev Keaton

We Met On a Nice Hello
Rev. Keaton made our union a very special and memorable occasion. The scriptures, prayers and blessings we recieved gave us a strong feel of unity. We walk towards each other as individuals but truly felt as one with the ceremony that Reverend Keaton officiated. She told our story and one could really visualized how our story unfoldedhow we fell in love and how we became one. If you want your union to be blessed by an ordained officiant and tge feeling of being complete and walking away with that feeling of marrying your best friend ... Reverend Keaton is the one! We will forever cherish the words and message that was shared amongst family and friends on our special day. I notice the next question asked tge payment amount ... what we paid was worth it and we know we would not have gotten that from going to the Justice of the Peace.Sent on 12/30/2020

A beautiful blessing for our virtual wedding!
I can not stress enough how wonderful and special Rev. Keaton made our unique elopement! With everything going on with Covid and the cancelation from many of our vendors, we worried that the day wouldn't meet our expectations. Rev. Keaton made sure it exceeded! Her kind spirit and calming presents made for the most comfortable special exchange of vows and some great laughs and highlights! Our family both present and virtual enjoy her so much and gushed over the beautiful moments she created during our ceremony. We are so honored to have been married by her! I highly recommend her and her services for your special day no matter the size or place!Sent on 06/21/2020

COVID-19 Wedding - Made Special by Rev. Keaton!
Rev. Keaton officiated such a beautiful ceremony for us on April 18, 2020. With short notice, we were able to come up with a plan for the ceremony date/time and she was very responsive by email. She was very adaptive to our situation which involved a ceremony on our front walkway and a tripod set up for our families attending via Zoom. We did not plan out a script or anything since it was short notice, but everything she said was custom to us and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Her overall personality, tone, and presence was perfect for our intimate ceremony; she was so warm, welcoming, and calm (which was nice for me since I'm anxious and a crier!).Sent on 04/20/2020
We cannot thank her enough for bringing such joy to our lives and our families during this global pandemic. We are so happy we chose to have Reverend Keaton conduct our ceremony. I would definitely ask her to conduct a vow renewal for us in the future, she is truly a blessing!
I Wed You's reply:Oh Jessica, your beautiful review was so touching! Thank you. I am so happy my service made your day special and memorable. That is always my goal and everything you both deserved. Happiness always! Rev Keaton

Rev. Keaton made our wedding one to remember!
From day one when Kelly and I met Rev. Keaton, I felt like it was at home with a mother, friend, aunt...or a close family member. She speaks from the heart with truth and years of experience that makes you feel even more comfortable and reassured that GOD IS REAL and MARRIAGE IS REAL. Kelly and I are so blessed to have Rev. Keaton bless our unity with her kind, honest and direct words that made our unity "ONE TO FOREVER REMEMBER"...God Bless you, Rev. D. Keaton.

brittany · Married on 09/20/2019
There are no words to describe how thankful and blessed my husband and I were so find Rev. Keaton. We got married seven days ago now and I miss her already but only seen her once in person. We feel like we’ve known her for forever and if I could hire her for being a part of my family, I would! Lol.... once we were married, of course our wedding was the topic but besides that, everyone wanted to know who our minister was. I’ll give her 1 million stars! Thank you so much Rev. Keaton. We love you. Try her out and you’ll see for yourself. She is beyond amazing! Many blessings to you.Sent on 09/27/2019
I Wed You's reply:Thank you so much for this awesome review! It was a tremendous honor to be the minister for your special day!

Made Our Ceremony Memorable
I found Rev Keaton on wedding wire! Spoke with her on the phone and so was sold. She is so welcoming, genuine, and sincere. After speaking for about 30 minutes I asked for her to send over the contract and she also sent a questionnaire for my husband and I. Fast forward to the wedding day she came to my bridal sweet to say hello and check in on how I was. During the ceremony she was amazing. Included my ten year old daughter which was one of my favorite parts. We received so many compliments on her, and it seemed like she knew us personally which is how I felt. Despite that being the first time we ever met no one could even tell. My family loved her, I can’t say how much I enjoyed her being our officiant. Don’t hesitate or look any further!!! She is amazing!!!!Sent on 09/15/2019
I Wed You's reply:Thank you so much Linette for this kind review. It was a perfect day and a perfect wedding and I am so happy to have been your Officiant!

Respecting COVID19 restrictions
My husband and I spent our lives in service in the USAF — married by REV Keaton, Retired USAF. With one day notice we were married outside a church under a cherry blossom tree- a rainy day started but after “I DO” the sun shined & church bells rang! Standing 6ft + apart w/ 4 friends REV Keatons words captured our hearts & connected us forever. witnesses cried. We had planned a beach front wedding at Fort Story but given our roles in healthcare — no time — mission forward to serve our people and our country. REV Keaton met this challenge & creating this powerful union of love! AMAZING!!! supporting how powerful love and GOD truly is- we love to serve and now can fight for life- together! With all our love & gratitude **Joey & Torrie SchleperSent on 04/09/2020
