Rev. Kev or Rev. Jack?

Hi Everyone!

We're getting married at Disney's Wedding Pavilion in Orlando and we're trying to decide which Rev. to use. I've read mixed reviews about Rev. Kevin Knox and Jack Day (along with Tim Herring). Rev Tim's reviews are probably the worst out of them all. Can you recommend any of them and tell me why? The decision is slightly overwhelming.

Thanks!

Witty, you'll probably get quicker and better responses if you post this over in the Disney Weddings board! Hope that helps!

Hello and to the DIS! Early congratulations on your wedding - how exciting!

I agree with Pumbaa - the best place to get answers to this question is on the Disney Weddings and Honeymoons Forum here on the DIS - click the link to go directly there.

If you have other questions, do not hesitate to ask. Best wishes and I hope your Disney wedding is magical!

Rev jack is my choice. We used rev. Kevin. And it was not worth it. I paid all fee's and 5 mins before the ceremony he comes demanding another 150 for a rehearsal fee fir another person that did it. The price was never told to me before hand and the other gentleman never told me about it and Kevin refused to do the ceremony till it was paid. Taking every spare dollar in cash had on me. He was rude and very hard to deal with. But I will say if you can get past the behind the scenes bull then your fine because it was a amazing ceremony

We booked Rev Kev and it has been very professional so far I have to say. Of course we haven't had our ceremony yet but if the information, assistance and booking procedure etc is anything to go by I'm not worried at all. Hope you get something sorted.

I used Rev Kev and have no complaints. He (and his wife) had great communication before and he was very helpful day of. We picked our ceremony from what was provided and he stayed right to the script and didn't offer any changes (we wanted a non religious ceremony and he kept it that way which we appreciated). He quietly told us what to do during the ceremony and walked through everything with my husband prior to the ceremony. Disney also seems to recommend him.

Can you bring your own officiant?

If you don't want to use either can you bring your own officiant from outside WDW or does it have to be a Disney approved minister?

First, Disney doesn't "recommend" any particular officiant. They provide list of vendors that brides frequently use to help brides select cosmetology services, formalwear/steaming, officiants, stationary, etc that are familiar with DFTW. This is not an endorsement by Disney, and you should not interpret it as such. Disney makes no representation to the quality of the services nor do they accept any responsibility for any services on the part of those vendors. There are quite a few more than two officiants on that list for example, so there are many options other than the two discussed in this thread.

Yes, you can bring your own officiant. Including those ordained online. Disney doesn't approve anyone, it's the state of Florida's requirements that would need to be met in this case.

I just want to put in a good word for Rev Jack.
We used him for our vow renewal in Oct 2011 and he was wonderful.
I had found a non religious ceremony on line that I sent to him to use and he really made it his own. He is a sweet man.
