"I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for being our officiant. The ceremony was absolutely perfect and you exceeded all of our expectations."


Cynthiana, KY

"Kendal answered countless messages (immediately every time) and was able to provide direction for our wedding vows. Not only was he professional, but his true character shown through when we had to move our wedding date up two weeks. Even though he had a personal event happening that day, as well, he never made it seem an inconvenience and was happy to perform our ceremony. I could not have chosen a better officiant for our wedding."


Cynthiana, KY

"Kendal is so wonderful! My husband and I really loved working with him. He was great in our initial meeting and was very responsive and considerate to our tweaks and requests. He made our ceremony both sweet and funny- exactly what we wanted!"

"Speaking from the parent of the bride, Kendal made it appear that he had known the couple for years! He made their day very special and the ceremony was just perfect!"


Lexington, KY

"I am so thankful that we were able to have Kendal officiate our wedding. My fiancé and I were both immediately so comfortable with Kendal, and the ceremony went perfectly. Kendal is a true professional and both met us a few weeks prior to the wedding to discuss everything and attended our rehearsal the evening before our wedding. I simply cannot say enough positive things about Kendal - we were just immediately at ease with him, we loved his style, his delivery of the ceremony is calming, heartfelt, and genuine - you need to have him for your wedding!"

"Kendal was great! He was very patient and helpful. I would absolutely recommend him!"


Wakarusa, IN

"We would highly recommend Kendal as an officiant. He helped us through the whole process and made us feel very comfortable.  We received many compliments from our guests after the ceremony. They felt his words were wisely chosen and thoughtful. Kendal is very personable and was very understanding of our vision for the ceremony. He listened to our thoughts and wishes for our ceremony. He helped us find a reading that captured us both as a couple. He also included comments from our personal lives in the script which made it extra special. The ceremony was exactly what we had hoped and we appreciate Kendal making our special day forever memorable!"




Lawrenceburg, KY

"Kendal did a great job. We were really pleased with how the wedding turned out and we got a lot of compliments on the ceremony!"


Atlanta, GA

“Kendal was a wonderful officiant! We were planning long distance and ended up only meeting him for a short time two weeks prior to the big day. He made us feel very at ease with the process from beginning to end. A perfect mix of professionalism and humor, which was exactly what we were looking for. Definitely recommend his services to anyone!”


Houston, TX

"Kendal was a great officiant for our wedding. He asked us both questions separately to get to know us and our relationship and folded lots of that info into the ceremony. He sent us several drafts and put up with all of our changes and had great recommendations for us as well. Highly recommend him!"


Lexington, KY

"The professionalism that is balanced with the sincerity of Kendal's ceremonies is one attribute that I believe could never be matched or duplicated. From our very first meeting, we knew we had made the right choice and when it was all over, that decision couldn't have been any more accurate. From the countless emails and texts that we ever sent to Kendal, he was always there, always quick to respond and always so helpful in every part of the process. There are not enough words to describe how my new bride and I feel about the way Kendal officiated our ceremony, nor could we every say enough kind words on the man that we have come to call our friend. Kendal went the extra mile and asked us individually some questions about one another and the significance of certain things in our lives that made our wedding that much more special and meaningful. He told us he was thinking about inserting them in our script but never told us what they were. Once the wedding was here and the ceremony started to flow, he inserted so many of our personal touches and aspects of our lives together that everyone in attendance felt the power of our love for one another and could see why we were getting married."


Bardstown, KY

“Kendal was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was flexible when it came to meeting with us. He was always prompt and professional. And, most importantly, relaxed! We wanted a short ceremony that was not boring. He was calm, funny and you would’ve thought he had known us for years! I can honestly say he was exceptional!”
