to offset our nervous Bride's "jitters".
What couples are saying about Father Ken...
"Father Ken was amazing. He has a fabulous energy that is contagious and he was so helpful through the whole process. He took time to meet with us before and get to know us before the ceremony. He made sure we were comfortable and had the wedding that we wanted! I could not recommend him enough!"
"Father Ken went above and beyond, even before our ceremony! He was incredibly helpful in the entire process, helping us with obtaining our marriage license, giving us advice, and just being overall supportive and kind. We got countless comments after the ceremony about what a wonderful job Father Ken did in the ceremony, and how nice he was. We will forever remember our ceremony because he made it fun, personable, and easy. We are so happy we chose The God Squad!!"
"The God Squad was AMAZING!! 2 weeks before our wedding, we were informed that we would not have a minister. Freaking out doesn't even begin to describe how frantic we were calling around to local friends/family trying to find someone! A coworker suggested we try The God Squad and there we found Fr. Ken Zelten!! He immediately calmed my anxiety by calling and assuring me he was a real person and that he would be there for us! Such a relief! The rehearsal and wedding went smoothly and I am so grateful to The God Squad for saving the day! Highly recommended by a happy bride :)"
"We were so pleased with Father Ken. He was such a delight. The smile that was on his face is also heard in his voice on the phone as well as in his emails. I highly recommend the God Squad to any one who is looking for convenient, all in one services. Will be calling them again in 25 years to renew my vows for sure"
"The God Squad was top notch. Respectful to a request that we had and very comforting when the tears of joy began. Father Ken's sincerity and genuine compassion mixed with humor was a golden touch to our already magical day. May the Lord continue to bless him and his work. Thank you"
"Over the years, my family has been gifted with The God Squad's generosity in sharing their passion for love and talent for creating unbelievably unique and moving messages for numerous ceremonies and life celebrations. Most recently, I was married to the love of my life and Father Ken was there to make this union one of the most beautiful things ever witnessed by our family and friends. The degree of detail and personal touches left my new husband and I floating on a cloud - our guests left feeling inspired and the event was overflowing with abundant love. We are so lucky to have found each other...and our families are SO very lucky to have found The God Squad, to help us celebrate all of life's most memorable moments. I can sincerely say that my favorite part of our wedding day was not the dress, the cake, the food, the drinks, the dance...but the time we stood in front of our guests, led by Father Ken, expressing our vows and openly sharing our love story with our family and friends. Thank you for such a gift!"
"We were so thankful to have Father Ken be part of our wedding day. From the day we met to the day of the wedding, he was with us every step! I was so nervous about the ceremony and the steps involved, but Father Ken brought a calming presence as well as a welcoming environment! It felt like it was just my husband, me, and Father Ken up there! My husband even jumped the gun on our “I Dos” out of nervousness, and Father Ken made the whole thing hilarious and as if nothing went wrong.
It truly feels like you have a Godly friend marrying you, because you do!!"
"Father Ken was simply amazing throughout our entire marriage ceremony! He guided us with his knowledge and experience and made us feel so at ease with the ceremony and license process.
My bride and I wanted a traditional service for our wedding and Father Ken provided that to us with grace and care!
We highly recommend God Squad for anyone needing a minister for their wedding."
"Wonderful from start to finish! We used Father Ken for our wedding, and he was wonderful. Leading up to the wedding, he was always super responsive and helpful. We were able to customize our ceremony to fit our style and comfort levels.
He was a huge help when I misplaced our marriage license after the ceremony. we ONE THOUSAND PERCENT recommend. I can not say enough great things about Father Ken and The GOD Squad Wedding Ministers."
