What we hear most often is that we have just the right blend of humor and reverence and we make the whole process relaxed and fun for our couples. Whether you love church, hate church, or are indifferent, we work with you to create a ceremony that reflects who you are.

Best pastor around!!
I cannot thank Jonathan enough for being a part of our wedding!! He handles everything and anything that is thrown at him and he manages to do it with a smile on his face. He makes everyone feel at ease and is so easy to relate to! He made sure that our wedding day ran smoothly and rolled with all of the little issues that seem to pop up on your wedding day. I was able to plan the entire ceremony with his help so that it would be exactly what we wanted. The premarriage meeting he does with you and is totally worth it and is so beneficial. I highly recommend it! I couldn't be happier to have had Jonathan as our officiant!Sent on 11/20/2019
Charlevoix Wedding Pastor's reply:Haley, it was such an honor to officiate for you and Andy! It was really fun to get to know you and to plan your ceremony together. Every couple has a unique story and you're absolutely right that all kinds of things (mostly little, sometimes big) happen on your wedding day (and during the planning process). We love guiding couples through those twists and turns and our experience really helps us stay chill in the process. Stay in touch.

If I could give our officiant Rev. Mays more stars I would! He was very easy to talk to beforehand and offered us great tips for a lasting marriage. The flexibility of ceremony options ensured we got exactly what we wanted and nothing that we didn’t! He also was wonderful at taming my wild groomsmen and making sure the whole process wasn’t too stressful.Sent on 10/08/2018

Rev. Jonathan is amazing.
Reverend Jonathan more than exceeded our expectations. His charm and personality put everyone at ease and carried out the ceremony flawlessly. Highly recommend his services.Sent on 10/17/2018
Jonathan is a super nice guy and does a stand up job on officiating Weddings in Northern Michigan. He is always on time and always in a great mood. We have worked together on multiple occasions and the Bride and Grooms are always happy with his ceremony and attitude. I would recommend him to anyone.
Charlevoix Wedding Pastor is a wonderful addition to your ceremony. As a Preferred Service Provider for Castle Farms, we are always pleased to see Jonathan as part of a Castle Wedding.
