  • We were honored to have Derek be the officiant at our wedding. We ended up booking Derek last minute since we lost our original officiant due to covid-19. He was super flexible and attentive with all emails and phone communication through the whole process. He was able to accommodate everything we wanted to include in our wedding ceremony. It was an absolute pleasure working with him and we are very happy that he could be a part of our big day. Thank you for coming to our rescue and giving us such an amazing wedding ceremony that we will never forget.

    Hello Priscilla and Vincent - oh wow- what a pleasure it was for me to not only meet the two of you but to be of service to you. I am so glad that I had your date available. We did not have much time, but what a beautiful service we co-created for you and your guests to enjoy. It was a perfect day and one that I will certainly remember for a very long time. I am glad that we are connected on face-book so I can follow all the great experiences that are in store for you as you write the new chapters of your life story. Many blessings to both of you.

  • Derek was wonderful to work with! We were a "COVID couple" so we didn't have the typical big wedding that we planned; however Derek made sure our small, intimate family wedding ceremony was perfect.

I wish you both all the best of Joy, Peace, Happiness and Love that your union so deserves. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journey.

  • My husband and I couldn’t have been more happy to have had Derek officiate our wedding. From when we first met with him to the day of the ceremony (and all the emails in between) he was organized, patient and kind. The ceremony he helped us put together was beautiful and personalized just for us. The day of the wedding, he unexpectedly came to my bridal room and thanked us for letting him be a part of our big day. He continued to wish us many years of happiness. You could tell that this wasn’t just a job for him, he genuinely enjoys what he does. We are very thankful to have asked him to be our officiant. Thank you again Derek!

    Greetings Caitlyn and John, the feeling is mutual - I couldn't have been happier than to meet both of you and Officiate your beautiful wedding ceremony. I was lucky enough to facilitate your wedding on my parents 71st wedding anniversary, then went to their house to celebrate with them . My parents were completely thrilled to share the 'big day' with you! I loved meeting you and I will certainly enjoy keeping up with all the fantastic life experiences that you now get to share with each other on this new journey in your lives. Blessings and Happiness to you.

  • Derek Dube is the kindest, most caring officiant around. He was incredibly professional and reliable. Always responding to my questions in a timely manner. He took charge of the rehearsal and made everything run smoothly and with great time. My ceremony was perfect and he truly made our "I do's" something unforgettable. In the words of my husband "he's truly a great guy". I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone getting married.

    Hi Jaclyn and Sean, for me the favorite part of working with couples is obviously the ceremony itself. A close second is spending time with their friends and families and hearing all the many wonderful tidbits that they have to share with me about the two of you. And boy did your family share beautiful words regarding your love for each other, great communication and how compassionate you are toward each other. You were a joy to work with. Many blessings on this new chapter in your lives.

  • Rev. Derek Dube helped to create a meaningful wedding ceremony for us. His strong suit is great communication. He took time to meet with us and ask questions to help frame what we were looking for in our ceremony. He offered lots of options, ideas, and suggestions, and we co-created a ceremony perfect for us. Derek stayed in touch in the months preceding our wedding and checked in often as we got closer. He did a fine job the day of our wedding, and we were happy with his attentiveness to our needs and that of our guests.

    Greetings Mac and Lynn, thank you very much for allowing me to be a part of your big day. I enjoyed working with you to co-create a very unique and intimate ceremony. I loved the readings that you added as they had a personal impact with you in your life. I wish you both all the best life has to offer for many years to come.
