Matt was OUTSTANDING!!! From the first meeting down to the details of my husband's and my life and how we met, it was perfect. He really made our ceremony so personal just about us and our love. I love how he incorporated our families and loved ones in the ceremony as well, it was a great touch. I even asked if he would participate by pouring the final crystals from my sand ceremony and he was more than willing to be part of that special moment. The ceremony he prepared for us was captivating, funny and so loving. That was the major compliment we got from our guests; that he was funny, genuine and that they have never seen a ceremony so loving. If you want a customized wedding ceremony Matt is definitely the man you want to be your officiant. I can't say thank you enough for giving us the ceremony of our dreams!

Matt is our favorite wedding officiant. He is a "one of a kind", easy going, personable and top notch professional. He meets with his clients and gets to know them on a personal level and carries that personal touch to the alter and through the ceremony. The Ashley Castle staff highly recommends Matt to officiate your special wedding ceremony!

I had the opportunity to meet Matt over 6 years ago before I started my company. His passion for serving couples with a heart felt and unique ceremony makes him one of my very favorite officiants. Our team has had multiple opportunities to work with Matt over the years, and every ceremony leaves us speechless. He has a way of connecting with couples and making them feel incredibly special leading up to their wedding and especially on their wedding day. We would HIGHLY recommend Matt!

Every time one of my clients use Matt, they absolutely rave about him and how fantastic he is. He is professional, easy to work with and makes each ceremony so personal to each couple. I highly recommend 1st Officant
