Dr. Claus has been officiating at wedding ceremonies since he was ordained in 1970...these ceremonies have always included people of different faiths and backgrounds. I love bridge building between people and a wedding ceremony is a perfect time to show this can and does happen.

I do not charge for the actual wedding ceremony, but I do for the following: (1) wedding ceremony booklets for couples to use for sculpting their ceremony that truly reflects who they are; (2) meeting with a couple to be sure this ceremony is exactly what they wish; (3) time, distance and gas- round trip- from my home to the wedding venue and finally: the biggy ...I will only offciate a 1 wedding per day....this can be yours.

For more information please contact me at: drkennetheclaus@gmail.com or 305-898-2489 ( I also text....)

Dr Claus was a pleasure to work with from our first consultation to the end of our ceremony. We planed a Florida wedding all the way from California and his personality really shined every through text messages. At our first meeting which was the week of the wedding he was so sweet, flexible, funny, and made us very comfortable. He guided us through picking the ceremony, but wanted us to make it about us. He was the most laid back and funny reverend we had ever met. On the wedding day he blew our guests away with his fun personality. It was magical and we wouldn't have changed a thing. Dr Claus is professional, reliable,kind, and was a really great addition to our special day. Our guests raved about how great the ceremony was. Thank Dr Claus! We highly recommend him!

Ken officiated our commitment ceremony 18 years ago. With the Marriage Equality rights now in place, we asked him to legally marry us again, except this time we wanted to include our son as part of the ceremony. Not only did he meet our request, but exceeded our expectations by repeating the exact same vows we pledged so long ago. Three rings were blessed: spouse, spouse, and child! Our wedding was complete with the beauty and grace of love!

Rev. Dr. Claus was an amazing officiant. What a nice person he is. He commits himself entirely to you the day of your wedding, which was important for us. He maintains constant communication with you throughout the planning process and I will say that I was very impressed with his response times. Phone call, text, email, etc. Dr. Claus was very detailed in his ceremony outlines and gives you the option to put together whatever type of ceremony you would like (whether it be traditional or non-traditional). I was able to meet with him prior to my wedding and get to know him a little more. He really has a good sense of humor and ALWAYS has a backup plan for outdoor weddings in case of inclement weather. I would highly recommend Dr. Claus to anyone looking for a wedding officiant. He was a true pleasure to work with and Marry Us!

Thank you Dr. Claus!!!!

I couldn't have asked for a better experience. My wedding ceremony was so personal and sweet. Dr. Claus gave my husband and I the opportunity to choose from traditional and nontraditional ceremonies, and could even mix-match any components of each if we wanted. He guarantees you get EXACTLY what you want in your ceremony, and that guarantee is extremely important to him. My wedding ceremony was truly out of this world. It was relaxed, poetic and beautiful. Dr. Claus is an incredible person to work with. He was available to answer all questions, and even gave some insight towards my general wedding planning as he has experienced so many. Absolutely the best. I recommend to ALL!!

We hired Rev. Claus rather late in the day as our wedding was short in planning (completely our intention) and Rev. Claus did not flinch at the short notice. He did everything possible to make us feel at ease in the lead up making himself available through Skype, text and phone as we were based in Atlanta and he in Florida.

On the day itself, Rev. Claus provided everything I was looking for in an officiant and more. While I wanted my wedding to be simple, small and intimate I wanted to to be correct. Rev. Claus understood our need for this to a tee. He provided the perfect service fitting for the Christmas season in a fun, light hearted nature with elements of humour to put everyone at ease which is EXACTLY what I was looking for.

Rev. Claus did not rush off straight after the ceremony, he stayed back and chatted with our immediate family and was keen to be present at the cake cutting (and tasting)!! ;-)

This began as a surprise given to me by my husband no one new anything until that Christmas night at our home. All our guest were enjoying each other’s company, food and music when out of nowhere Dr. Claus walked in and said do you know why I am here I answer (NO Sir)! I am here to marry you all I could do is shake and cry of joy. This was the best Christmas gift I could have ever wished for and Dr. Claus was very the very best choice to marry us. My Husband said he was easy to talk to he explained to him that he will do only one wedding on Christmas eve and it would be ours. The ease of which he was able to get in contact with him for any questions or concerns was amazing he would secretly be texting my husband so that I wouldn’t find out. They met secretly where Dr. Claus offered my husband two different types of ceremonies and my husband chose wisely our dream wedding Traditional. The ceremony was unforgettable simply beautiful. Dr. Claus was very humorous and made everyone feel very relaxed. He has a way of drawing in the crowd as only a great speaker can. All of our guests made it a point to mention to me how great he was some guest even ask for his info for themselves or to refer him! We are so thankful to Dr. Claus for our ceremony for a memory full of love that will last a lifetime.

Thank you again Dr. Kenneth Claus

Rev Dr Claus was over the top amazing! He helped us to capture the essence of our relationship leading up to our wedding day through the ceremony of our dreams. Our guests were highly entertained by his lightheartedness and insight of the Pennsylvania Dutch culture. He arrived to our venue on time and was great at putting me at ease before the ceremony began. Our ceremony was completely custom, written by my husband and I with Dr Claus' help and insight along the way. He is extremely responsive whether it be via email, voicemail, or even text message. I feel not only did we have an officiant there, but a friend as well. His attention to detail was incredible; down to the attire we wished for him to wear, to our personal vows being sent to him the morning of to ensure we wouldn't lose them for the big event! I love looking through the pictures of Rev Dr Claus and my husband before the ceremony began, wondering what they were talking about during that time.. Dr Claus stayed afterward for pictures and reached out to us as a follow up just recently to see how married life was going. I would highly recommend his services for anyone getting married in the South Florida area.

Our Ceremony was filled with love, warmth, light and humor thanks to Dr Claus!!! We couldn't have asked for anyone better to marry us. Dr Claus was always available as we prepared our ceremony. After a couple of phone calls, multiple emails, and a text on Thanksgiving, Dr Claus married us on 11/28/2014 in Key Largo. Every single guest loved him and so do we! We look forward to seeing him again one of these days on another trip from CT to FL!
Thank you for making our day extra special Dr Claus!
With Love,
Kat and Mike
