  • We absolutely loved having Reverend Derek as our officiant for our wedding! Due to covid, we had to change plans and do a smaller ceremony and then are doing our originally planned wedding in 2021. He was so understanding and easy to work with. He was willing to help us in anyway we needed. We are very excited to have him for our second wedding as well! We also did premarital counseling with him and it was very help for us as a couple and to have him get to know us before the big day. He is great at making the ceremony special, personal to the couple and engaging your guests. Our families commented on how great he was as well. He is a great person to get to know, very genuine and many great stories. We can't thank him enough for being a part of our wedding day (both wedding days)!
