  5. #5 Reverend Dennis Allen Colwell

    Amy Y.

    Dennis was the best officiant my husband and I could have asked for. He was extremely easy to work with and created a great ceremony that fit us perfectly. Not only were we happy, several guests came up to us throughout the night to tell us how great of a job the officiant did. It was a great experience and I was much more relaxed during the ceremony knowing that Dennis could smooth over any hiccups.

  6. #6 Iowa Humanist

    (8 reviews)

    Courtney H.

    Steph did a wonderful job making our day perfect. She was very easy to work with, very professional, and very accommodating. She gave us all of the guidance we needed leading up to the ceremony, but also gave us all of the freedom to make our ceremony how we imagined. It was important to me to have a non-religious ceremony and Steph was totally on board. She was respectful of those family members that may have not understood a Humanist ceremony. My fiance and I are are more than thrilled with how the ceremony was preformed. Highly recommended!!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Sunrise Chapel Des Moines

(58 reviews)

For myself, I have never been interested in the large "over the top" weddings, while fine for some, I had an interest and saw a need for a market that offered a small venue, that focused on the marriage and not the pomp. That offered an alternative to a courthouse setting.

Sue Kuehl is a professional wedding minister who officiates ceremonies for couples who want it simple and private. Sunrise Chapel by Sue was created out of 15 years of research which is an alternative to a courthouse wedding. This chapel is a place where you can exchange your vows in a small and no fuss ceremony.

I think the one that stands out the most is a vow renewal I had the opportunity to officiate. This couple had been married a few years before [in] a courthouse ceremony. They wanted to have a vow renewal on their anniversary, complete with all the trimmings. The vows were based on renewal vows, but they could hardly get through them with all the emotion. It spoke volumes to the dedication to their marriage.

If you are looking for an intimate wedding that is short and sweet, let Sue Kuehl help you achieve this dream.

  1. #1 Sunrise Chapel Des Moines

    (58 reviews)

    Dana M.

    The ceremony went very well, and Sue was extremely professional! She allowed me to make up the order of service the way I wanted to ahead of time, adding my own personal touches to the program. It was a special service for my husband and I that we will not forget! Since we chose not to do a rehearsal, I especially liked that Sue came to the venue with me the day before, and we discussed the whole order of service. She did a mic-check to make sure the equipment worked to our expectations, and we also discussed the moves that we would need to make during the ceremony because we were on a small stage. She even researched one of the items I wanted added so that she would be fully prepared to perform that part of the service for us. Her reassurance really helped to put me at ease! The day of the wedding she arrived early and we again discussed how the ceremony would go. She did a perfect presentation, just the way I wanted it! Because the stage we had been promised was not the one we were given on the day of the wedding, Sue had to do a little more maneuvering of people during the ceremony, which she did without it being too awkward for us. She made sure we signed the license right away so that we could continue with our party knowing that all of the details were done! With Sue doing the ceremony, I felt so comfortable that it was like she was a member of our family officiating! I will definitely suggest to others to have Sue be a part of their weddings.

    Alycia P.

    My husband and I met with Marty about 6 weeks before our wedding day. Feeling a time crunch, we were both nervous. After meeting with Marty, there was no question in our mind who would be officiating our wedding. Marty was GREAT. He responded to messages promptly, answered questions with experience and knowledge, and asked for our input every step of the way. He helped us create a wedding ceremony that was just how we wanted. Many people at our wedding said what a great job he did. Some said it was the best wedding they have been to in years. Very organized ceremony!

    Words really cant describe how happy and thankful we are to have had Richard as our officiant! He was very flexible on our wishes in our vows and ceremony. He was on time and not to mention he went above and beyond and stayed in touch with us through out our very long engagement and worked with our needs such as playing his flute!(Richards flute playing made me change my own original music that I had it was that good). He is sooo reasonable with the price. My guests were giving my husband and I good comments on picking such a great officiant! We even had a guest ask for his number so he could officiant another wedding! I will ALWAYS brag about how amazing our officiant was.

    Lindsey K.

    Reverend Dennis met with us prior to the wedding so we could all get a feel for one another. I was instantly put at ease with him and knew he was the right officiant for us. He really listened to what we wanted our ceremony to be like and did an excellent job communicating with me and preparing for the big day. He was so kind and did a wonderful job during the ceremony. I've had LOTS of compliments on his 'message' and the ceremony in general. I highly recommend him to anyone! He was also a great help with the paperwork side of things.

    Sara B.

    Pastor Joe was an amazing person to work with to create the perfect wedding ceremony. He has invested so much of his time and heart into our relationship as well as writing a unique wedding story he shared with our guests. Our relationship as a couple has already grown during our sessions preparing for the wedding. I cannot say enough positive words about him and the process he has developed to make a very special day of each couple he works with. He is amazing as a person and wedding officiant. We both highly recommend him for anyone planning their wedding.
