I provide the best for all couples
seeking the greatest wedding ceremony experience ever!
Each location offers something completely different, and compliments each other by providing the best facilities and services anywhere!
And in addition to the best locations and facilities.....I love what I do, and it shows in every wedding I perform!
No matter what your dream location is for a destination wedding, I travel everywhere in the State of Michigan and have experience with many other areas of the U.S. - including Hawaii, and also the Bahamas and other island locations!
My name is Rev. Brian Tuttle, and I want to thank you for reviewing my WeddingWire page and website, and all the wonderful reviews by many of our past wedding couples! I want your wedding ceremony - no matter which one of our destination locations you choose, to be the best experience ever! I am a true wedding professional – someone who can bring excitement and passion to your wedding ceremony. And I will bring new ideas, or help you to make your dreams and wishes come true!
Everything is important in regards to your ceremony, and we will work closely together to identify all the elements you desire for your wedding. I will be there to support the entire custom ceremony process, your rehearsal, and pre-ceremony set-up. And will arrive early to your ceremony to ensure that everything for your ceremony is set and ready for your wedding. I work with your wedding coordinator and/or all your vendors to make sure all the details are completed and perfect. And in regards to your ceremony...the performance is just as important as the ceremony words, and I will provide the highest quality for both. I write beautiful, joyous, and inspirational ceremonies. Ceremonies that your family and friends will be both engaged in and amazed by, and talking and bragging about for years to come! Let me help you create a ceremony that reflects you both as a couple, and the love that you feel for each other!
Who am I? Rev. Brian Tuttle, better known as ‘Me’, is a full-time minister, doing missionary work, and also an active community and charity volunteer. A highly experienced public speaker with over 30 years of large audience demonstration, education, and speaking experience, and award-winning talent for both writing and speaking, starting with 4-H demonstrations - and both Toastmasters groups - Youth, as a teenager - and Toastmasters International, as an adult. I have a God-given talent for writing and performing, and I use this blessed talent to write custom or highly personalized wedding ceremonies. My attention to detail on not only the day of your wedding and rehearsal – but also during our work on your wedding ceremony, will be to make your ceremony the best you have ever experienced…..as a guest or a bride and groom! This is your special day...don’t make a mistake hiring the cheapest officiant you can find. The best is not always the most expensive, but a mistake here costs much more than money….it costs your memories, and the embarrassment of a poor performance in front of family and friends. A poorly written or performed ceremony will be a serious reflection on your entire wedding.
I perform all types of ceremonies – religious, non-religious, spiritual, and themed wedding ceremonies. If you would like a denominational, interfaith, or non-denominational religious wedding - I can help! My upbringing and education were all set in the Lutheran Church, but I also have experience with Catholicism and other Christian denominations. I also can assist with Spiritual and Buddhist ceremonies and traditions. And for those seeking a Rabbi for Jewish ceremonies, I can assist! It is not my place to judge your religious beliefs, or require that you have a religious faith, and impose my requirements on your wedding. I work both as a minister and wedding officiant so that your ceremony is based on your wants and needs. Are you divorced? I am non-judgmental on your previous marriages, and am here to assist with your new beginning. I don’t require marriage counseling - it is available, but never required. It’s your day…..it should be done your way! There really is a difference – let me prove it to you!
I also invite you to review our wedding portfolio pictures. We have chosen just a small sampling of many of our Northern Michigan and Western and Eastern shoreline weddings - to illustrate how we can make your wedding an outstanding event! What beautiful couples and a wonderful wedding days! From the wedding pictures, you can note that I provide passionate, joyous, and exciting ceremonies that couples and their guests find inspirational and beautiful. Call me today.......I can provide the same for your wedding!
What is it like to be married on Mackinac Island?
It's best to choose a Mackinac Island resident (or me, who lived there of recent)
Please check out this YouTube Video - produced in 2011!
It is shot in a special format at the couples request, but gives a very individual's perspective on what it's like to arrive on our island, and participate in a wedding - enjoy!
Please also refer to my site for the best in quality vendors for your day – wedding planning, photography, string duo-quartets, dove releases, and other quality Island and Grand Rapids professionals!
