  • My now husband and I are pretty easygoing and knew we wanted to keep our ceremony simple. We felt connected to Kurt from the beginning and he is so kind and professional. We had to change our plans because of COVID-19, but Kurt was extremely patient, helpful, and accommodating. Because our ceremony included just immediate family, we all had the chance to chat and it was such a pleasure to have him be apart of our day. We would recommend him to anyone without any hesitation . Thank you Kurt for making everything so easy!

  • Fantastic experience! Kurt had a meeting with us a few days before wedding where we discussed the plan for the ceremony and his outfit! Ceremony went smoothly and remarkably good. We are highly recommend Kurt. He is the best officiant I ever saw and have been to many weddings.

  • We are so happy that we chose Kurt Denk as our wedding officiant. Kurt was the first officiant we spoke to in our search and when we chatted with him on the phone, we instantly knew he was the one for us! Our wedding situation was definitely a unique one being in the midst of a global pandemic. When we decided to postpone our big wedding, Kurt was extremely supportive. We also wanted to elope in the city with our families and he was very helpful with guiding us through obtaining our marriage license online through Project Cupid and then planning our ceremony via video chat and emails. He was also so patient with us because all our plans were up in the air for our elopement due to Covid. It was tough for us to decide on a proper outdoor location and to make sure our families felt safe and comfortable to attend. We didn’t have a concrete plan on our location and time until the week of our elopement, but the entire time Kurt was warm, kind, and extremely patient. Thank you agai... Read more

  • My wife and I were very happy we choose Kurt! He helped walk us though the ceremony and paperwork process, gave us exactly what we wanted for the ceremony, and was a wonderful officiant. After the wedding he followed up with us to confirm that the court had received our paperwork (which he mailed in for us, taking something off our to-do list). If he's available for your wedding date I'm confident he'll make you as happy as he made us.

    Thanks so much, Mark, for your kind review! It was a pleasure celebrating with you, Chelsea, and your family and friends. And the weather even cooperated for outdoors on the rooftop! Warmest wishes to you both for a wonderful life together.

  • My now husband and I were extremely happy with Kurt! Prior to our wedding ceremony, we really got to know him and he took his time out to speak with us multiple times to ensure accuracy and specificity to what we wanted for our ceremony. He was punctual and professional and we felt very comfortable with him. His personality was very easy going and he was so easy to work with. He confirmed with us prior to the ceremony and also the day before, which I really was happy with. I definitely would recommend Kurt to officiate your wedding! We have all good things to say of him!

  • Words cannot begin to describe how happy I am that I chose Kurt for our ceremony, he was truly a blessing through the whole process. I found Kurt while looking on the Knot for officiants, sent a message and received a quick response to set up a phone meeting. After speaking with him for those 15-20 minutes, my husband and I were sold that this was the person to choose. We worked closely with Kurt through the whole planning process. We had one face to face meeting with Kurt at a local coffee shop, where we discussed what we were looking for in the ceremony, our interests, and important aspects that we wanted included in the ceremony. I received the first draft not too long after this meeting and we were completely blown away. Just from the first draft we knew we definitely made the right decision. Due to my husband and I having busy work schedules, Kurt and I worked mainly through email and phone calls, sending drafts back and forth with edits until we reached our final draft. We did de...

  • Thank you, Kurt, for making our wedding the most unforgettable experience of our lives. You are an incredible person, with great charisma and professional even in the smallest details so that everything is perfect. Your command of English and Spanish made you the best of all. We congratulate you on the organization and let us participate in the choice of texts for our exchange of vows.

  • It's been since March 16th that I have been rewriting this review. I couldn't fit all of the wonderful things Kurt Dent provided to make our wedding so special! Hundreds of accalaids ran through our minds, and it all came down to this. If you're looking for a caring extraordinary wedding, Harbor Lights LLC is the ONLY sure way to go. Look no further! My family enjoyed how Kurt's personality exudes Happiness, it was as if another family member was with us to enjoy and partake in the festivities. We love your free spirit and wish we could do it all again and again! Thanks for all you have done to make our wedding dreams come true. Habor Lights LLC for trusted professionalism.

  • My wife and I felt a natural connection to Kurt during our first phone call. He carefully considered our requests while also offering us great insight on how to tailor the ceremony. In addition to Kurt's thoughtfulness, he anticipated the small details and accommodated unexpected changes—even sending a variety of tie samples to complement the bridal party's attire. Upon our first meeting, Kurt instantly felt like an old friend. He is a natural conversationalist who holds a genuine interest in his clients' lives. One of the highlights of our day was listening to his eloquent sermon. Kurt is an articulate public speaker with perfect diction and a soothing voice; qualities we believe are paramount in officiating a marriage. Although we requested a brief ceremony, we invited him to enjoy the cocktail hour as our guest; and though he had a commitment later in the evening, he gave our guests his undivided attention. Perhaps the most special moment of the evening was when Kurt renewed our g... Read more
