  • If you are looking for a personalized ceremony filled with love and other boundless expressions, I recommend obtaining Rev. Lou's services. Unlike many of the others officiant's I interviewed, he takes the time to learn who you are as an individual and as a couple and works to create a balance between both of your personalities. I cannot thank him enough for personalizing a ceremony that invoked so many joyous emotions that my family and friends still remember months later. I wanted a ceremony that displayed the love between my wife and I and included my family and friends and my expectations were well exceeded.

  • Louis is a great guy! After our wedding, many of our family and friends approached us to say how much they enjoyed his services. Also, his 1-on-1 consultations, and personality profile were very beneficial. Thank you Louis! 1 Year Anniversary is tomorrow already!

  • On May 4, 2013, my Husband Richard and I had the Pleasure and Honor of having the Rev. Louis V. Schwebius perform our Wedding Ceremony. The Love, Time, and Energy Louis put into our Service was Outstanding and we felt his Love for what he does on our Big Day as well as our Family and Friends!! Louis was terrific with our Stepson as well. Prior to our Wedding, Louis met with us and went over different types of services he could offer to us, which made us feel so relaxed and comfortable...and we really responded to that. The Rev. Louis V. Schwebius is a People Person, Terrific Attitude and does his work from the Heart. Because of this Man, our Wedding is something we will never forget, and the Love and memories we have on May 4, 2013...will last a Lifetime. We recommend Louis to anyone...he is truly the BEST!!!!!

  • Rev. Lou was exactly who my wife and I needed to meet to make our wedding a success! As Foreign Service members in between overseas assignments, we had neither long-term association with a specific DC area congregation nor significant planning time in which to make our ceremony happen. After many phone calls and much Internet research, we interviewed Rev. Lou and another pastor. I feel that Rev. Lou’s engaging manner, sense of humor, and attitude reflected his sense of vocation and NOT simply a client/service provider relationship. With a compressed timeline until the ceremony, Rev. Lou was very flexible in scheduling the counseling sessions (which were less awkward than one might imagine) and he guided us in the process of crafting the entire ceremony to be what we wanted. On the big day, Rev. Lou crossed the wasteland of Northern Virginia to reach us - our wedding was the day after the June 2012 Derecho storm! Thankfully, the weather held out that day, our venues were undamag... Read more

  • Rev. Schwebius performed our wedding ceremony in 2012 and helped created a beautiful and special family event. He was very sensitive and attentive to our needs and created a beautiful and meaningful ceremony for me, my wife, and both of our families. While providing pre-marital counseling Rev. Lou was supportive, understanding, and very flexible. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an interfaith minister.

  • Rev. Schwebius was great. He took a lot of time out of his schedule prior to the wedding to work with us both on the actual event planning and general advice and counseling. He and his wife were also great fun at the reception.

  • My husband and I loved working with him. He was the first and only officiant we met with during the wedding planning. We couldn't have imagined anybody else better than Rev. Lou. I think we knew he was right for us when he said that he didn't want to be one of those officiants that were seemingly beamed down into a wedding ceremony. He proved this throughout our sessions and showed a genuine interest in our relationship and marriage. Our families enjoyed meeting him and we all were glad to include him in the wedding reception. We had guests that remarked months later how much they liked our officiant. Having Rev. Lou as your officiant means not only that you will have an officiant, but afterwards a great friend and counsel.

  • Rev. Lou was awesome! He tailored our ceremony to us and we really felt like he got to know us and everyone commented after how it seemed like he knew us so well and how personalized it was. He even gave us a copy of the whole ceremony typed out afterwards that we love. Highly recommend him! He also did our daughters baby blessing ceremony in 2013!

  • Rev. Lou was a wonderful officiant for our wedding ceremony. He was very personable and easy to work with. He scheduled several meetings with us in advance of our ceremony to discuss our relationship and our wishes for our wedding ceremony. My husband and I come from different faith backgrounds, and Rev. Lou incorporated aspects from both of our faiths into our ceremony to make it very spiritual and personalized. As a musician, I happen to be a wedding vendor myself and have seen about 800 weddings, so I knew the types of things I was looking for in a wedding officiant. Rev. Lou led a fun and engaging wedding ceremony. He was interesting without being overpowering. He gave a personalized (rather than "canned") sermon. We received many compliments from our friends and family about Rev. Lou. He's a great guy, and we are still in touch with him, 4 years later!

  • Rev. Schwebius was available each time we needed to talk or meet with him in the months prior to our wedding. He was flexible to meeting our specific needs for our service. He also has a large portfolio of items that we were able to choose from to incorporate into our ceremony. We included our own personally written pieces as well. Our family and friends thought our wedding was beautiful, personal, and uniquely ours. We feel this was due to Rev. Schwebius' support and flexibility. He helped to make our wedding a very memorable event.

  • Reverend Louis created a beautiful and memorable interfaith ceremony for us. He is very personable and worked with us to represent both of our religions. He paid great attention to detail and officiated with expertise, humor and sincerity. More than one of our guests mentioned that our wedding was one of the nicest wedding ceremonies they had ever attended, and that Reverend Louis did such a wonderful job. In addition, his wife was a delight as a guest at the wedding. He also officiated at our son and daughter-in-law's wedding last year and it was also a very special wedding. We are so glad Reverend Louis conducted our ceremony and highly recommend him to those seeking a very wonderful experience.

  • Reverend Lou was simply amazing to work with. Our personalities clicked immediately from our first meeting and the whole process was smooth, efficient and fun. The ceremony itself was joyous and full of energy. More than eight years later we still keep in regular contact with with Rev. Lou! He was a very important part of our special day and I would absolutely recommend him without hesitation to anyone else looking for a wedding officiant.
