Northwest Indiana wedding officiant Rev. Doug Klukken with a happy couple. With nearly 30 years of experience as a wedding officiant, Rev. Doug has a passion for giving the bride and groom a personalized ceremony that will always be remembered.
Ceremony performed at First Unitarian Church of Hobart, Indiana
Jessie: "Everything about our ceremony was beautiful and perfect for us! Rev Doug did an amazing job marrying us and all of my friends and family complimented what a great ceremony we had! Thanks for a gorgeous, memorable marriage ceremony!!!!!"
Susan: "Everything about our ceremony was wonderful - you perfectly blended the parts of our religious backgrounds that meant the most to us and made everything so personal. Our family and friends are STILL talking about you and most say they've never been to a ceremony that felt more personal and inclusive."
Justin: "Rev. Doug was everything we could have asked for on our special day. On a day in which nerves & emotions are wound very tight, Doug was able to talk me through a couple tense moments & kept myself loose as I awaited my beautiful bride. He kept everyone who had roles in the wedding on point by guiding them through during rehearsal & leading all of us in the right direction during the ceremony as well. Doug was able to capture the mood of the event through very strong words, but also kept the atmosphere light with some timely jokes. We all smiled, laughed, & almost cried during the event. I would recommend Doug to any couple out there getting married. Thank you Doug, you were part of day we will remember forever!"
