"Reverend Doug Klukken provided us the best wedding ceremony we could've hoped for. I have a very Catholic family, and my spouse's family is not particularly religious. Doug put together a beautiful outdoor ceremony that was respectful of both of our family's backgrounds. All the guests had nothing but wonderful things to say about the ceremony. He met with us beforehand and personalized our ceremony with us. When he was officiating, he talked about us and to our guests like we were all friends. He was available at any time the days leading up to the ceremony if we had any concerns or changes to make. He was prompt, professional, and highly personable. We are so happy that we chose him to officiate our wedding. It was just perfect."

"Rev Klukken was amazing at our wedding ceremony!  He is SO personable and really a lot of fun!  He had a special quality about him that made the ceremony SO enjoyable for us and our guests as well.  The way he talked about us made it seem like he had known us for years!!  We would recommend him to anyone getting married! Of all the people we hired for our special day, he was by far our favorite. It's been almost 2 1/2 years since we got married and we (and guests) are still talking about him. There aren't even enough ways to express how thankful we are for having him do our ceremony."

"We highly recommend Rev. Doug Klukken. Everyone at his office was very nice and helpful. His planning meeting was great. My son who was with us still talks about him. We had a great experience. Our wedding ceremony was very personalized just for us. He had everyone laughing, smiling and crying. All our guests commented on how great he was and how perfect it all was. Your way wedding day is just what it says. It's all about you and your day and exactly how you want it. And if you don't know how you want it they have all kinds of ideas from experience to help you decide through every detail. We can't recommend him enough. Our wedding was perfect!"

"Rev. Doug Klukken was a joy to have officiate our wedding.  Not only was he professional , but he made us feel very comfortable from our first meeting.  He took in all our wants and also contributed many thoughts and ideas to give us one of the most memorable and unique weddings anyone has seen. We had many guests remark about how wonderfully done the ceremony was.  We would recommend him to anyone we know that he will do a reliable and fantastic service."

"I cannot say enough good things about Rev Doug, Alexandria, and The Free Spirit Church. They made our wedding day so beautiful, fun and relaxing. They handled everything, provided us with direction and made the entire ceremony such a wonderful memory. Alexandria is extremely helpful, responsive and an amazing help with planning and Rev Doug just made the ceremony such a blast that I am still receiving compliments on how much fun our ceremony was. I could not ask for a better team to assist with our wedding."

"Rev. Klukken did a phenomenal job. I had a lot of fun, and "at wedding ceremony." I can think of all the ceremonies I sit there and just think I can't wait for the reception, but he went out of his way to get to know me and my wife Lara. W e had a great time and I cannot believe how many people have said that it was the best ceremony they have ever been to. Rev. Klukken meshed with our personalities so well. Even down to his appreciation for the wedding march song "Sweet Child of Mine" by Guns and Roses. I recommend Rev. Klukken to anyone looking to have a genuine and unique ceremony that will be remembered forever. Glad to have him as an important part of our big day."

"Rev. Klukken was amazing. He married us July 20th. From the very first meeting with Rev. Klukken, I knew that he was a perfect match for my husband and I. By nature I’m a worrier and he set my mind at ease. He walked us through every step a nd incorporated everything we desired in the ceremony. At the ceremony he was even better. I was so nervous but he calmed my nerves. His lightheartedness added a warmth and genuine quality to the ceremony. SEVERAL people came up to us after and said it was the most beautiful and heartfelt ceremony they have ever been to. I especially loved the fact that he stands out in the audience and does the ceremony from the aisle. That way the bride and groom are looking out towards their family and friends. All the other wedding I’ve been to have the bride and groom’s back towards the audience. Rev. Klukken’s way was much better. Our friends and family got to see the emotion on our faces at every turn. I recommend Rev. Klukken whole heartedly. "

"Reverend Klukken did an absolutely amazing job at our ceremony. He reassured that everything would go smoothly and it certainly did. One less stress to worry about on our wedding day! I loved how he made our wedding so personal by getting i nto the names of family members and really concentrating on both of our backgrounds and what led us to each other. If you want someone that's very professional & trustworthy I would highly recommend Reverend Klukken. I heard from numerous guests how well he did at our ceremony and how touching it was. His experience definately shows, awesome job!!!! "
