  • We LOVED Rev. Lou! He was personable and funny and he truly cares about you and your marriage. All of the guests at our wedding loved him too! They appreciated not sitting through a boring ceremony. He is open to all faiths, spirituality, sexual orientation, and races. When I got choked up during my vows and couldn't breathe, he cracked a joke which forced me to laugh and then I was back on track to speak. If we had to do it again, we would absolutely choose him!

  • I cannot say enough good things about Rev. Lou. Rev. Lou married my cousins about 7 years ago. I was only about 16/17 years old, had no intentions of getting married, but I remember how amazing my cousins ceremony was. Fast forward to Christmas 2017, when my now husband proposed, and I knew I wanted Rev. Lou to officiate our Fall 2019 wedding. Not only is Rev. Lou flexible, but he is open-minded and truly wants the ceremony to reflect the couple. My husband and I were initially hesitant to participate in pre-marital counseling, but we are so glad that we did. We enjoyed every visit with Rev. Lou and enjoyed breakfast at a near by diner :) Our ceremony was nothing short of PHENOMENAL! Rev. Lou crafted a ceremony that truly reflect us as individuals and as the couple we became. We did not want an overly religious ceremony, but we did want God's presence and Rev. Lou delivered. We received so many compliments from our guests regarding his performance. I will FOREVER recommend Rev. Lou to ... Read more

  • I was referred to Rev. Lou through a friend at work. I was looking for an officiant that was spiritual and makes a personal ceremony with us. Rev Lou was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for, and more. I really enjoyed the pre-wedding sessions where he got to know us and we got to know each other more as a couple. I also liked the wide variety of material to choose from for crafting the ceremony so it suited our spirituality. The ceremony was fantastic, my relatives are STILL talking about Rev Lou!

  • My husband and I used Rev. Lou for our wedding on August 3rd, and his services were exactly what we were looking for. I am spiritual but not religious, and my husband doesn't ascribe to any particular faith, so we were hoping to find someone that could provide us with a spirited ceremony without explicit references to religion. Rev. Lou was attentive to our wishes and worked with us in a flexible way to develop a personalized ceremony that was enthusiastic, intimate, and reflective of who we are as a couple. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in search of a competent, professional, personable officiant!

  • Reverend Schwebius worked diligently with us for months in advance to make sure that not only was he prepared to perform the ceremony we wanted, but also to ensure that we were prepared to embark on married life together. The advance counseling meetings helped him know us as a couple and also gave us further confidence in our relationship and communication skills. He provided options for us in every aspect of the ceremony, but always went with what we asked, often adding his own flare. At the conclusion of the ceremony, many guests, and also our DJ, made sure to tell us the ceremony was the best they had ever seen. Reverend Schwebius worked to get the crowd excited and engaged before we ever entered the room and captivated everyone's attention throughout while honoring our love. It was more perfect than we could have ever imagined because of him.

  • Searching for an officiant for my and my husbands wedding was a little overwhelming at first. We do not belong to a church, but it was still very important to my mother that we have an ordained minister officiate the ceremony. After meeting with a few officiants, we felt at ease with Rev. Lou right away, appreciated his humor and light heartedness, and trusted that he would ensure the ceremony ran smoothly. He took ample amount of time to get to know us before hand and was always available if we had any questions leading up to the big day. We definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding officiant!

  • We were lucky enough to get to know Rev Lou when he officiated our wedding 10 years ago. He did an amazing job; the ceremony was personal and touching. We reached out to him recently to help us celebrate our 10 year anniversary and the blessing of our children. At our event, Rev Lou again delivered a beautiful, moving ceremony that was very "us" and engaged our young children. Rev Lou is an excellent celebrant who has made very special days for our family even more special.

  • My (now) husband and I met Rev Lou when he officiated a friends wedding. He was sincere, funny and engaging. When we got engaged he was the first person who came to mind when thinking about who we wanted to bless our marriage. Rev Lou is the complete package. He offers premarital counseling sessions which are worth while as they allow you and your significant other to contemplate topics you may not have thought of with a third party perspective. He worked with us to make our ceremony unique and totally us. Assisting us in writing our own vows and making sure they incorporated into the ceremony seamlessly. All of our guest thought he was engaging and personable. We could not be happier with our choice in officiants and hope anyone reading this considers Rev Lou as his professionalism and sincerity are beyond reproach. Thank you Rev Lou!

  • Our goal was to have a small family wedding and with Rev. Lou’s help it was a wonderful occasion. We are so happy we chose him. He provided two consultations prior to the wedding, which were very professional and helpful. He played an important role in making our wedding and event that we will always remember. We highly recommend Rev. Lou.

  • Reverend Louis Schwebius was fantastic. We had our very small wedding at Hillsborough Vineyard and Reverend Louie did an incredible job; planning, couciling, and most importantly, officiating.

  • Rev Louis was a dream come true! He spent the time to get to know us and made our day very special. Not only did he give us a fantastic ceremony, but he also supported other last minute requests to give us a written copy of our ceremony and spend a few extra hours with us planning at our wedding location. On Our wedding day, Rev Louis quickly jumped to the rescue when my dress got caught on the wine barrel! He also took care of my elderly father and escorted him with care to a safe location after the ceremony. Rev Louis is absolutely terrific and will tailor the wedding ceremony to support your individual beliefs.

  • I had an absolutely wonderful experience with Louis! My husband and I were looking for a "quick elopement" without the bells and whistles - didn't think of the romance or anything else behind it. Louis did! He was, not only flexible and available, but created a customized ceremony based on our wishes/wants. I never dreamed something so quick/simple would become so memorable. Thank you, Louis! I highly recommend him!

  • I was lucky enough to locate Rev. Lou via weddingwire.com as we had no leads on whom we wanted to handle this monumental task on our big day. We knew we wanted someone very personable and energetic, someone that would keep us cool on the day of, and prepared to handle whatever the wedding day through at them. Rev. Lou checked all those boxes! When we met with Rev. Lou the first time (introductory meeting) to see if we had a connection and we wanted to work together we found out that Rev. Lou was previously in the education field and went to school in NJ. ( I am from NJ and wife is a teacher) needless to say within 30 minutes we knew we needed Rev. Lou to be there on our day. We just hit it off; he was so easy going, very flexible on his scheduling to meet with us leading up to the big day, etc. We put his expertise to the test for sure on our big day, as it started out as a beautiful sunny day in the morning, but gray skies rolled in about 30 minutes before the ceremony began.

  • Five stars aren’t enough for Rev. Lou. Can’t imagine how anyone could do a better job. We got more compliments on him than any other part of our wedding. Rev Lou cares so much about what he does and is very good at it. He is a great person who makes everyone feel comfortable and welcome. We would highly recommend Rev Lou to anyone.

  • We are eternally grateful to Rev. Louis for his time and guidance leading up to the wedding. His officiating services on the big day were truly beyond our expectations. His delivery, his connection to our guests, and the thoughtfulness in his personalized message to us brought both us and our guests to tears. He put our guests at ease and set a tone that allowed people to feel connected to us, and also allowed us to feel connected to our guests - it made the whole ceremony extremely memorable for all involved. We would recommend him without hesitation. He cares about what he does, and it shows in his work ethic and performance. We had total trust in him throughout this process. Can't wait to grab sushi with him and his wife once we're back from our honeymoon. Thank you so much, Rev. Louis.
