Ken was great. He put together a great ceremony with very thoughtful words. He is very professional and yet still laid back. Everything was very organized and went smoothly. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to spend a reasonable amount of money.

Ken did an awesome job officiating our wedding and also transitioning into DJ. He knows his job and knows it well. We had numerous compliments on how great he was at keeping the party going. Ken is very professional and we couldn't have asked for a better person to perform our ceremony. Ken as a Dj is a fun person who you can tell really enjoys what he does. Ken stays social with the crowd while still keeping the music going. I would highly recommend him and am sure you will not be disappointed!

Initial Contact: E-Mailed them that I was interested - was asked to fill out the planner and email back with $50 deposit following in the mail. I emailed back the planner and told them the $50 check was on the way from my fiance asking if they could please confirm when they received it. 2 wks went by with no email or phone call back from them and so I asked if they received the check. No response. Another week goes by and I email them again asking for someone to respond to me. Turns out they had the check but were confused that it was from my fiance (who's name was listed in all my emails and documents) and they didn't know who the check was for? Fine... but, why not respond to me when I emailed you the first time? He basically blamed his assistant and seemed quite nice on the phone until he said "Don't worry - someone will be there to marry you...what day are you getting married again??" Was a little unsettling, but I figured it would be fine - my fiance and I are pretty laid back and we just needed to get married, so whatever!
Day Before Wedding: I receive a phone call from Ken telling me that he is "calling it" and that due to the forecast of rain I would have to have my wedding inside. I calmly explained that I would prefer to look at the radar the day of my wedding to be sure. It was in my original planning documents that I would let them know the day of. His response was simply "fine." followed by *click*. Real professional.
Day of wedding: Ok, so we stated no mention of God (my fiance is not religious) and no mention of children. HE READ A PRAYER FOR US TO BE BLESSED WITH CHILDREN. We never saw or approved anything like that.
Lucky for Mr. Kibby, my fiance and I still laugh about it and the end result was a success - we are happily married. Would I book with or recommend anyone to ever use I Now Pronounce You? Nope - not at all. Unprofessional. Completely.
Good luck to you - I hope your experience is better then mine.

My husband and I wanted a stress free and easy wedding. The courthouse was going to suite us just fine until we found out they required some sort of marriage counsling and after 7 years of living together in happiness counseling was out of the question. We found Ken just by google and emailed him, within 10 minutes I recieved a call from Ken himself and an appointment was made. The three of us got along great and we filled out a simple questionnaire and this was about 3 months before our wedding. One month before our wedding we recieved an email with a ceremony outline that we were able to customize and send back. We asked for a ceremony that did not involve any religion and was just about the 2 of us and thats was we got. At our wedding he arrived 20 minutes before the service was do he was dressed better than some of our guest and he spoke so loud and clearly and made an impression on everyone. For us not even wanting a wedding Ken made us happy we chose to have the ceremony. I would reccommend him to anyone and everyone i know.

Ken was good.
He just always seemed to be in such a rush and didn't make us feel like our wedding was really that important.
He did a good job with the ceremony itself and made us feel comfortable during the ceremony, but had to leave right away for another one.
He was also supposed to do our blessing at our ceremony that he had volunteered to do and then the night before told us that he had someone schedule last minute and couldn't do it. Which was fine we found someone else to do it, but then he showed up right after the blessing. So we weren't sure what went on there.
He did a great job though, the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. Other than being rushed he did a great job with our wedding. We wouldn't have changed anything about it.

Ken Kibby was our officiant and made planning out our wedding ceremony a breeze. We met with him and reserved our date with a deposit as well as talked about what we wanted to include in our ceremony. He does both religious and non-religious ceremonies. You can choose to do your own traditions and or rituals as well. Ken was very helpful in writing our vows and the order of how things would go on the day of. We had a ceremony rehearsal the day before our wedding and Ken made sure everything was clear and there were no questions. On the day of our wedding he wore an under shirt in our wedding colors and spoke loud enough for everyone to hear. One thing I really liked was that he e-mailed us a copy of the ceremony wording and we could change it up until the week before. That was helpful!

Selecting an officiant is something that was very important to me. Ken was awesome from day one! He always got back to me with my email correspondence. We went to meet him and he went over everything in detail. Gave us suggestions if we wanted and told us to let him know anything we did not like and we could change as it was our special day:). He gave us the suggestion about the dove release and I am so happy we did!! It was so incredible! All of our guests said it was the first time they had ever seen:). His voice was strong and he was so down to earth and made it very special for us. He even coordinated with our colors for the wedding. We wrote our own vows which was very nice. I cannot say enough good things about him and I definitely recommend him highly!!
