"Due to cost and personal medical reasons, my dream wedding had to be delayed and scrunched down into a modest last minute ceremony at a family members home with only two weeks to plan. It was already a last minute situation of "bride panic" on my end and we had decided to share it with family and friends via skype. No one was willing to officiate on Christmas Eve, but Kenny said "no problem," as he was going to do it via Skype and be done in half hour. Turns out we had a major glitch the morning of the wedding as we tested the Skype connections. The issue was on our end and was going to take time to resolve. I became a frantic, crying bride very quickly. There would be no wedding without an officiator. Kenny calmed me down, and said no worries. Kenny dropped everything, grabbed his suit, jumped in the car and drove to us to personally officiate. Kenny literally save my wedding day. He never mentioned the excruciating back pain he was having, never brought up money, but just got in his car and made the 400 mile round trip on Christmas Eve to save my wedding. Now, that is "over and beyond" exceptional service. How many people would go that far out of their way, on a major holiday just to officiate a wedding? Kenny! I had written a script for the ceremony as I wanted music played halfway through the service. However, again we had technical issues, and Kenny never missed a beat. Ever the professional, he kept the ceremony moving along so that the unplanned glitches were not glaring issues. The ceremony went much more smoothly than it should have gone. Kenny is so professional and can work under pressure. As I was panicking and forgetting my place with the distractions, he kept the whole thing running smoothly, quietly feeding us a line when needed. We are personally so grateful to him for literally saving our wedding day with the lengths he was willing to go to for my most special day. He never let the back pain stop him from making the round trip, nor letting it show on his face or affect his duties. Again ever the professional. He was just EXCELLENT under pressure, calming a frantic bride, and keeping the day about me and what I needed. My husband and I absolutely recommend Kenny, and our knowledge that you will be fully satisfied with whatever type of ceremony you choose. From your initial planning contact with Kenny, you will feel like you are working with an old friend, and will love his outgoing personality and professionalism. If you need guidance or ideas he is equally talented with organization and creativity. He provided me with ideas for my vows which got me started and wound up becoming very loving and personalized. He didn't hesitate as I emailed him my 3 page itinerary of how I wanted the ceremony to flow. Even with the glitches on our end, it never affected his service. He is extremely articulate. We had totally forgotten a microphone, yet he was able to speak up and enunciate clearly for those watching via ooVoo (we finally got that working last minute instead of Skype). Those that were finally able to watch and hear our ceremony later told me how they were able to hear him clearly and were impressed Kenny's officiating. You WILL NOT be disappointed if you choose Kenny to officiate your wedding. He is the best and I promise that starting with your initial contact with him, to the end of the ceremony, you will be working with an experienced professional. So whether you choose a large or small ceremony, Kenny is and a wonderful, reliable and compassionate choice for your wedding officiant.
