  • We can't begin to express how wonderful Rev. Derek was helping us with our wedding day ceremony from start to finish. From our pre-marital "education" to helping us with writing our ceremony vows and walking us through the steps. He was so easy to talk to, responsive and there for us every step of the way. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted and our favorite part of our wedding! We can't recommend him enough. Thank you Reverend Derek!

  • I can’t even begin to brag about what an amazing experience we had working with Rev. Derek. He was an absolute joy to work with. Not only did we enjoy having him as a part of our wedding, but our guests were so impressed with him also. He was very attentive, genuine and professional. I would recommend Rev. Derek over and over again.

  • We cannot say enough great things about Rev Derek, he was absolutely amazing! We decided to plan our wedding in a short amount of time. He provided resources and knowledge so that we could put together the exact ceremony we were hoping for. His communication was excellent, and he even showed up early the day of the event to make sure everything was set. Derek made us feel so comfortable, and truly cares about your special day.  We feel very blessed that he was a part of our ceremony, and would highly recommend him.

  • Rev. Derek was absolutely amazing! So easy to talk to and always responded quickly to any questions we had. Loved meeting with him before our wedding to establish our relationship with him. Made our outdoor non traditional ceremony perfect!! Had so many rave comments from friends and family about how much they enjoyed the ceremony. I know I found him on purpose and I thank God for that. Our day was phenomenal and Rev. Derek played a huge roll in making sure everything went smoothly. If you are unsure, let me assure you, he is hands down the only choice for a wedding officiant.

  • Professional, charming, and warm Reverend Derek was there the entire way. He guided our planning with a knowhow that made us rest at ease. When it came to the big day we were confident because we had an amazing officiant who planned out stuff we hadn't even thought of. Extremely accommodating and very good. 10/10!

    Thank you so much for your review. After a very challenging, horrifying week, your words are especially appreciated. I hope all's well with you and Brady. Please give her my best wishes, too. Take care!

  • Reverend Derek was an absolutely pleasure to work with. We wanted an officiant who would be willing to get to know us as people so that they could best represent us during our ceremony, and that's what we got! The ceremony went off without a hitch, which is the most important part; perhaps our favorite part, though, was the premarital coaching. Rev. Derek came over to our apartment for a couple sessions, and it was so fun to see how my fiance and I responded to questions, different assessments, etc. And more than fun, it was meaningful. Rev. Derek was a great facilitator through it all and we are so happy we chose him!

  • Rev. Derek was the perfect addition to our wedding day! From the very beginning during planning Rev. Derek was very personable and responsive with any questions we had about the ceremony. The day of the rehearsal dinner some of our wedding party was running late due to weather, and he was very understanding and accommodating so that everyone could be a part of the rehearsal! Our actual ceremony went so smoothly, and we received many wonderful comments from our guests. Rev. Derek truly put together a beautiful ceremony, and would highly recommend!

  • Rev. Derek is experienced, personable, kind and has a great sense of humor! He is also very flexible with the type of service you are looking for as he can easily transition from serious to humorous at your request. Based on these qualities, we booked him as our wedding officiant. He had great communication throughout the process and was always available for questions. Following our ceremony, many of our guests asked if Rev. Derek was a family friend, which we had felt like he had been. I definitely recommend Rev. Derek!

  • When my wife and I planned our wedding, we quickly realized, that we had a language problem. As my parents speak little English, and my wife's family no German, we where afraid we could not have the wedding we wished for. Fortunately, we found Reverent Derek, who supported us with a very beautiful, bilingual ceremony, that helped both of our families feel included. Derek has a warm and open nature, and is easy and fun to work with. He also has a lot of good stories at hand to prepare you for your special day the easy way. We thank Derek for his service, and would highly recommend him.

  • Working with Reverend Derek was such a great experience! He provided us with a ton of resources so we were easily able to personalize a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted. He has many options, both religious and secular so we had no problem finding ceremony elements that worked for us. Throughout the entire process, he was incredibly responsive and flexible which helped relieve stress rather than add more. Any time we had any questions or concerns, he immediately responded to our emails and offered to meet in person if needed. Overall, Reverend Derek was a huge reason our wedding so smoothly.

  • Working with Reverend Derek was one of the best choices we made for our wedding day! We were referred to Derek through our wedding planner, and knew from our first meeting with him that he was the right choice. He is a wonderful blend of humor, experience, calm, and confidence as an officiant. He is comfortable with a variety of wedding ceremony styles (we did a combination of traditional, with some Jewish elements, but overall not a strongly religious ceremony) and was receptive to everything we asked of him, and if we were not sure how to approach a topic, Derek provided us wonderful options and selections of vows and other readings and elements for the ceremony. The premarital education was also very insightful and he helped us discover many unique elements about us as individuals, how we related to each other, how we saw ourselves, and how we viewed each other, that we will be able to take with us in our married life. We enjoyed our time planning and learning with Derek, and are so... Read more
