I am a resigned (ex) Catholic priest who served as an assistant pastor at a church in the interior of Brazil before leaving the active priesthood to marry. To continue officiating wedding ceremonies and providing other spiritual services I became a minister with the non-denominational Federation of Christian Ministries.

As a wedding Officiant who has officiated at more than 950 weddings, I bring a wealth of experience in creating wedding ceremonies that are spiritual, heartfelt and memorable. My passion is to touch people’s hearts and strike a balance between the seriousness of the marriage commitment and the celebration of the wedding event. I believe it is important to connect with each bride and groom not only as a couple but also as individuals and to share my experience and philosophy of life with them so that they get to know me as an individual as well. The best way to know if we are a good match is to meet in person and to begin to learn about one another in a relaxed atmosphere. Read less

Ken made our wedding ceremony so special. Many of our guests commented on his message and how heartfelt it was. We planned our wedding from California and Ken made the entire process so easy, always working with our schedules for phone calls and squeezing in a visit when I was in Virginia for a very brief time. I felt it was "meant to be" that we found Ken. We highly recommend him as a wedding ceremony officiant.

When we first met with Ken, we knew right off the bat that he would be our officiant. He instantly made us feel comfortable and has many years of experience officiating weddings. He worked with us to tweak the ceremony to be exactly what we wanted and was always quick in responding back to any questions we had along the way. Thank you Ken for giving us our perfect wedding ceremony!

Ken was a wonderful officiant! He made the ceremony very special and rememberable. We had several guests come up to us after the ceremony to tell us how great of a job he did.

Ken is a bit pricey, but well worth it! He did an absolutely amazing job. I was and still am surprised at how many people commented on how great our ceremony was and asked where we found Ken. We met with Ken twice; first time to make sure we all liked each other (his words) and a second to finalize our ceremony. Ken provided us with an outline a ceremony, which was fully customizable. He even provided optional readings, poems, prayers, exchanging of rinds, vows, etc. that we could also consider; which was a god send. We had no idea where to start and he was a tremendous help. We couldn't have asked for a better ceremony and he will always be our first recommendation.

Kenneth Knapp officiated our wedding and did an excellent job. From the first moment we met him, my husband and I agreed that he was a good fit for our wedding. Ken is friendly and talkative, with an interesting history and hobbies. And his personality came out in just the right amount during our ceremony. The ceremony was just the right combination of serious and light, with Ken offering marital advice and setting a good tone for the event. We are very happy he officiated our wedding and would highly recommend him to others.

Reverend Knapp was absolutely wonderful!

Leading up to the big day the Groom suffered a leg injury that required several modifications to the ceremony and the preparation leading up to it. Reverend Knapp was more than happy to accommodate our requests, and even came to our house to handle the rehearsal, since the groom couldn't leave the house at the time.

A simple review is not enough to explain how great Reverend Knapp is, but suffice it to say that our day wouldn't have been the same without him.

Ken Knapp was a great officiant. My husband and I wanted a ceremony that incorporated some religious elements, but was not overly religious. Ken Knapp created the perfect balance. Our ceremony was personal and appealed to both us and our guests. We particularly liked how Ken has a basic ceremony template that we could use or modify in anyway. He has a good sense of how long a ceremony should be to capture the sentiment one wants to create, but not lose the guests' attention.

Ken is very experienced in performing ceremonies, and he took care of all the details. He does not attend the rehearsal, but does a walk-through of the ceremony one-two weeks prior to the ceremony. At first, I was concerned about this, but it worked great! Doing the walk-through in advance allowed us to discuss questions and concerns well before the hustle and bustle of the wedding weekend.

We were very pleased with Ken, and highly recommend him.

Ken made my fiancee (now husband!) and I feel at ease immediately. He was so easy to talk to at each of our meetings and we really enjoyed the conversations we had! He made our ceremony personal and intimate. Our family and friends all commented on how touched they felt by the ceremony. Ken hung around during the cocktail hour and our guests loved getting to meet and speak with him! We can't say enough good things about Ken! He comes highly recommended!

Ken did such a fantastic job with our wedding ceremony! He is incredibly friendly, accommodating and flexible. My husband and I clicked with Ken right from the start--he is so easy to talk to and you feel as though you've known him for years even just after meeting him! My husband and I are spiritual but not super religious, and I feel like Ken totally understood where we were coming from and what kind of ceremony we wanted. He gave us great suggestions for personalizing our ceremony and met with us twice before the wedding day to go over all the details. His words on the wedding day were beautiful and many guests were commenting on what a wonderful ceremony we had! Thank you, Ken!
