    A wonderful minister for our Christmas Eve wedding

    Michael was a pleasure! From the moment we met, we knew he was the perfect fit for our Christmas Eve afternoon wedding. He provided a sample ceremony script, which we tailored for our small, intimate wedding. He arrived on time, and with his deep, melodious voice, pronounced us man and wife.

    Micheal is the best! He's very professional and very personable. He accommodated the jokesters in my wedding party as well as playing along which was perfect. I highly recommend him. He will not disappoint!

    Michael is the most amazing, professional, kind, loving, creative and endearing man. This makes for an equally impressive officiant. We had an intimate ceremony on the cliffs overlooking Bodega Bay. Michael joined in our beachy bohemian event and went barefooted with the rest of us! He hiked the cliffs to get to our special location and shared in our passion. He's a lovely man, very eager to get to know us in order to participate in a familiar and meaningful way. We highly recommend Michael. Our wedding would not have turned out as beautifully as it did, without him! xoxo, Mary
