    Derek was very responsive and willing to help us with any questions or requests we had for our wedding ceremony. The ceremony turned out great and included some personal touches that my husband and I wanted added. Derek is extremely flexible- he gave us a few sample ceremonies to start with and we added to and eliminated from each until we had a perfect ceremony. On our wedding day Derek was very professional and helpful. We got many compliments on our ceremony. I would highly recommend Derek to any bride (and groom) who are going through the daunting process of planning a wedding. Choosing Derek will be one of the great decisions you make along the way!

    Hi Ashley and Joshua, thank you for the kind words. I am truly grateful. Having that excerpt from the Velveteen Rabbit was a wonderful addition to your ceremony. I know that book was very special to both of you as children. And your sand ceremony was very touching and personal. I am so grateful to have been part of such a unique ceremony. Thank you for allowing me to be of service to you both. Blessings filled with love and happines always.

    Rev. Derek Dube was wonderful and made our day complete. From meeting him to the emails and the phone calls to make sure our ceremony was written to our approvel. He had great ideas and examples to chose from. He was earlier the day of to make sure we where good to go. And was a good sport for our "hot" outdoor wedding, along with the rest of our guess. I hope for him to renew our vows in Ten Years...and highly recommed him for your "Big" day...

    Rev Derek performed our wedding ceremony. Our ceremony was out of state, and Derek was very easy to work with. The ceremony was perfect. Our guests loved the ceremony. They all agreed it was perfect- not too long with a great message. We are both so thankful we chose Derek to perform our ceremony.

    Derek greatly exceeded our expectations for an officiant! When we first met him, we knew right away that we wanted him performing our ceremony. We felt very comfortable with him from the start and he was very responsive to emails and phone calls. He suggested a few readings and let us choose what we all wanted. I couldn't say enough great things about him and our guests and family keep telling us how beautiful of a ceremony it was. Thanks Derek! We are forever grateful!

    Derek was the greatest! We met with him prior to the wedding so we felt like he had a feel for what kind of couple we are. Our ceremony/vows were personal. The entire ceremony was emailed well in advance and we were able to change and personalize anything. He also helped pass chanpagne, talked with all of our friends and family, participated in dancing and seemed to fit right in. It was a great experience working with him.

    Derek was amazing! He met with us prior to the wedding so we felt he had a very good idea of who we were as individuals and as a couple. He was incredibly organized and worked hard to create a ceremony outline that was perfect for us. He was always prompt and thorough in his responses (via both email and phone). We still get compliments about how nice the ceremony was! I would recommend him to anyone!

    Rev. Derek was exactly who my wife and I were looking for to officiate our wedding. He listened to all of our concerns and wishes and worked with us to develop the ceremony. Rev. Derek was encouraging and supportive in all of our wishes along the way. We received compliments on the service for months after our wedding! I would recommend Rev. Derek to anyone that is looking for someone to be a part of their special day!

    Rev. Derek Jamie and I want to thank you again for all of your help and kindness you afforded us along our journey to the path of marriage.

    Derek was excellent in all categories. He was very helpful with the entire process, which is really what we were looking for. My fiance and I had no idea how we wanted the Ceremony to go, what to say, how to do our vows, and Derek provided samples and examples for everything. All we had to do was read through, pick and choose, and tweak things to our own liking. He also had the personality that we were looking for! You definitely get what you pay for. All in all, an excellent Officiant and would highly recommend him.

    We had Derek officiate our wedding ceremony. He was very professional and extremely helpful in preparing our ceremony. Although we did not know him personally beforehand, you could tell how he truly cared. It was a little more than we originally wanted to pay for officiant services, but it was worth it in the end based on the quality of his service, his flexibility, and that it included the rehearsal dinner as well.

    Derek Dube officiated our wedding. He was one of our favorite vendors. He was so available to answer questions and was very open to taking our ideas. He sent us numerous ceremony/vow examples and wanted to write something that felt like us, not just the same cookie cutter ceremony. He did a wonderful job answering all the questions during the rehearsal and showed up promptly the day of the wedding. He talked with me before the ceremony and really calmed my nerves as the bride. He has a calm demeanor and his voice is lovely. Many guests said how wonderful his words were. He did a fantastic job!

    Derek was and excellent officiant for our wedding. We got married in our home and he came in advance of the ceremony and helped us prepared spiritually for our vows and calm our excitement. We felt he really took a genuine personal interest to us and our ceremony. He was able to accommodate our rehearsal schedule and took extra time to help us create our vows incorporating our personal messages and intentions. We had a few last minute adjustments and he was flexible and attentive to them. Wonderful person and officiant!

    Rev Derek Dube was excellent to work with. I was recommended to work with him from a friend who had used his services for their wedding. I met Rev Dube and knew from our meeting that we wanted to work with him. He was accommodating to every one of our needs, allowing us to be flexible with changes we made often for our scripture to make it perfect. Rev Dube is professional, kind, has a sense of humor, thoughtful and gives great suggestions when we asked of him. We had the pleasure to work with him twice, having him wed our friends wedding so it was a pleasure to see him do what he does best before our own wedding. If you are planning on getting married, please consider using Rev Dube for your service....he will make it a memorable and special ceremony just the way you dreamed of it to be.

    Greetings Shelley and Nick, it was such a pleasure to work with you over these past many months and co-create such a beautiful ceremony - that natural back-drop for your pictures was outstanding! I had a chance to meet many of your family members and friends and I was impressed by how much support and love they all have for you. I want to wish you both all the best this new journey has to offer you. That being said, I was surprised at the rating that you gave me for responsiveness. I pride myself in following up with any and all concerns or questions that my couples have. I went back and checked our correspondence since you first contacted me in March of 2018. The vast majority were responded to by me within 8 hours and a few in less than 1 hour. My only responses that went between 10 and 24 hours were ones that went overnight. It is extremely important to me and World of Wisdom to follow up within 24 hours to everyone that I have the pleasure of working with. Blessings and Happiness.

    Derek was very thoughtful, flexible and supportive while we planned out ceremony with him. He helped us with ideas throughout the way, and we ended up with a ceremony that was very personal to us. He helped run the rehearsal, which was great because it took that off our minds and we didn't have to deal with that among all the other wedding stuff.

    Thank you so much for the kind words - I know how difficult it can be to plan a wedding with life happening at the same time. I am so glad that I was able to help co-create a beautiful ceremony with both of you. Love and Peace to you for many, many years of Happiness as a couple joined in marriage.
