    Derek exceeded our expectations. He genuinely cares about us as couple. Derek helped us develop a ceremony that was unique to us, with keeping traditions that we wanted. We received numerous compliments about how well spoken and heartfelt our officiant was. Our ceremony was beautiful and sacred. He guided us the entire way in creating a personalized ceremony to fit our beliefs and personalities. I would highly recommend Derek.

    You are correct - I do care deeply about each and every couple that I have the Pleasure and Honor of working with as we co-create your Wedding Ceremony together! It is a process, that over time and consistent communication, I find out who you are as individuals and as a couple, that we add the personal touches that make your ceremony totally unique. Thank you both so much for the opportunity to serve you and help make your 'big day' special for you and your family and friends. Lots of Joy and Love to you both as your new journey begins.

    Derek was an absolute pleasure to work with for an officiant of our wedding! Being that we did not live in the area, we had to communicate and work together long distance, which he made so easy. We felt very comfortable with him, and he helped calm our nerves and made our day special. He provided so many wonderful tools to help make our ceremony personal and customized. Derek fit right in with our family and we received numerous compliments from family and friends about him and our ceremony. I highly recommend working with Derek for your special day!!

Lots of Love, Laughter and Joy to you both as your Journey together begins!

    Derek was the only officiant we met with, and we knew we wanted to hire him before the meeting was over. He was very flexible with our ceremony wording. He sent us several different ceremonies and let us choose and edit them as we wanted. He was also really patient when it took us longer than expected to get our wording back to him - a major plus when we were stressing about every other aspect of the wedding! The ceremony was one of our favorite parts of our wedding day!

    Thank you and please understand that it does not matter how long it takes to get the ceremony just the way you want it.

    Joy, Peace and Love to you for many, many years of happy marriage!

    Debbie and I were blessed to have been referred to Derek to officiate our wedding. The ceremony was wonderful , Debbie and I could not be more happy; and Derek was a significant part. In the pre-planning ,Derek provided very helpful materials and options, along with his guidance, and was very mindful of our wishes and intentions for the Wedding. Derek also suggested matters that Debbie and I probably would have missed; and he was never presumptuous.Derek is also a very spiritual person which is very important for Debbie and me.

    Reverend Derek Dube of World of Wisdom Ministry is one of the kindest, most compassionate and hardworking person we have ever met. He wasn't "an officiant" he was the kind, intelligent, genuine and caring person who brought the ceremony to life. His enthusiasm and genuine care for people flows through him. He made us feel at ease the whole time and added all of our thoughts, beliefs and contributions to our ceremony. He asked us many questions and did a custom ceremony based on who we were as people and as a couple. It is hard to put into words how amazing this person is. I was getting a little nervous right before the ceremony and he surprised me by coming to talk to me right before. His words touched my heart and really got me ready for the biggest and best step I have taken so far in my life. He is attentive, understanding and fun too! He even brought several different suits to wear in case we had a preference. My husband and I invited him to the reception as a guest and sat him with our grandparents. He said he had a ball and so did they. My mom and her partner, Eugene, loved talking to him as well. He made some rounds and left us a beautiful note in our photo booth scrapbook.AND WE LOVED HIS PICTURES. We are so glad that we found him. He was the perfect person to marry us! Thank you so much!

    I don't know where to begin. :) First of all, you two definitely are a LOT of fun! Your sense of humor and your playful spirit will take you both very far in this relationship. The way you accept each other coming from two very different faiths, is an awesome tribute to the love you have for each other. Planning and combining rituals from both of your backgrounds was most enjoyable and a wonderful education for me. Your ceremony at the Domes was beautiful, light-hearted, spiritual, cultural and just a whole lot of fun! I am so happy to have served you in this way on your 'big day'. I can't wait to hear all the good news from you in the coming years.

    We are extremely happy with the ceremony that we co-created with Derek. We contacted Derek less than two months before our wedding. We had an initial talk with Derek over the phone to discuss what we were looking for in a wedding ceremony. Throughout the process of creating our ceremony Derek provided suggestions and actively sought our comments. Derek was very responsive to our requests and flexible in that we did not meet face to face until our rehearsal. In the end our ceremony was a meaningful combination of Derek's original program with unique readings and a wine box ceremony that we requested.

    We worked with Derek Dube - A truly great person. We reached out to him in an email and he got back to us with an amazing collection of inspiring and thoughtful ideas, and this made a huge impression on us. We went to meet him and within the first 5 minutes, we knew he was the one.

    We were greeted without any sense of judgement whatsoever - just a surprisingly warm and truly genuine person. We had a great conversation about our 3 unique perspectives on the world and our lives. This was the type of unique understanding and kindness that you can only dream of having on your special day.

    From the examples that were provided to us and the questions he had us answer, we could tell that we were going to get an absolutely customized ceremony (without having to work too hard at it either). Over the next couple months, we proceeded to dial in on the ceremony language via email. It was fun, creative, and probably the least stressful of all the elements involved in planning the day.

    He let us do whatever we wanted and had great suggestions along the way, letting us combine traditional vows guided by him as well as our own that were read by us. We incorporated a wine box ceremony - one of his many great ideas - and that really helped add to how memorable and perfectly awesome everything was. He attended our rehearsal dinner and filled in whatever logistical cracks remained, as he assured us he would when we were wondering about tiny impossible details a few weeks out.

    The ceremony went off without a hitch. It was just such a great day. It was even better than we thought it would be. So unique. Not only does this guy know what he's doing, he loves what he's doing: Attending to love itself, in its most pure form.

    Derek was the perfect wedding officiant for my husband and I's wedding. He made sure that our day was special and our ceremony was unique to us and our guests. He was extremely flexible with our schedules and made sure that even though we lived in a different state than him we were in constant communication leading up to the wedding.

    Derek was truly wonderful to work with!! Tony and I knew immediately after meeting with him that he was the perfect officiant for our wedding service, We didn't need to look any further. Our wedding ceremony was tailored to what we wanted it to be with the guidance of Derek. We were provided with sample ceremonies and were able to tailor these to fit what we wanted our ceremony to be. Any and all questions to Derek were promptly answered. Derek is so personable , we would recommend him to anyone for any type of service. Derek actually did a Baptism for my husband's cousins children. It was a pleasure to see him again. We would highly recommend Derek for his services and refer our family/friends. I found Derek on wedding wire myself and had a wonderful day with him leading off our day. Thank you Derek for making our wedding day so special!!

    Derek Dube was the officiant for our wedding and he did an amazing job helping us create the perfect ceremony! I admit we were a bit overwhelmed with the whole process of creating a ceremony, but Derek assured me that everything would be great. He provided us with many examples and samples that were extremely helpful. He was quick to respond to any questions I had and I really appreciated his professionalism and guidance at the wedding rehearsal and on the day of the wedding. I highly recommend him!

    Hi Melissa and Scot, thank you so much for taking the time to fill out the assessment. It was great working with two really die-hard Brewer fans. The Love, respect and support that you so willingly share with each other is obvious in your communication and just the way you look at each other when talking is such a great reminder to all that Love is alive and well! Thank you for such a high honor of allowing me to be a part of your 'big day.'
