A blessing! More than we could ask for!
I don’t even know where to begin! Rev. Michael is such an amazing person, so inspirational and nurturing. You can truly tell that this is his calling. My husband and I purchased the package with the marriage coaching sessions and wow! First off, Rev. Michael got us to think and connect on a completely different level... i recommend this to everyone. Not only was it so much fun, but we feel it brought us even closer. Now the ceremony... Wow. We had to reschedule due to COVID and he made it so easy and was so understanding. He made the drafting of the ceremony so simple and seamless. We knew nothing about weddings and nothing about a ceremony. We got married yesterday and our ceremony was perfect. THE MOST perfect. I am bulgarian and my husband is serbian and we had a very diverse crowd. They were all amazed and couldn’t stop raving about how great the ceremony was. This was even after us not doing a traditional wedding from our cultures. Everyone said we made the right choice after Rev Michael delivered such a beautiful ceremony. He really does feel like family and it’s so amazing to have had someone like this a part of our day.Sent on 11/29/2020

Thank you for giving me the privilege of getting to know you and encouraging you to explore even more facets of your relationship. No matter what challenges you face I think you make a winning team. God bless you on your journey of life together.

Although we weren’t able to book Michael for our special day, his beautiful attention and care alone deserves a review. We fell in love with Michael instantly, he is a genuine and kind soul and really listens to the couples he meets with. He has great presentation and makes a deliberate effort to customize the experience. We felt that he cared about our marriage and not just the ceremony.Sent on 01/20/2021

Michael was such a pleasure to work with. He was very supportive and provided great guidance throughout our wedding planning process. He takes the time to have you complete a relationship assessment and meet personally to discuss the results and provides advice accordingly. He also assisted us with the challenging task of writing statements to one another for our ceremony. He truly cares about the decision you are making and it shows through his work! Our ceremony was absolutely perfect and we couldn't have asked for anything better! Michael is very very professional, friendly, and passionate about what he does! Thank you again Michael we highly recommend you!Sent on 10/25/2016

Our DJ's always enjoy working with Michael! Awesome officiant!!
We worked with Michael numerous times on the weddings and recommend his services every time when we speak to our brides! He is very professional, fun and easy to work with. He puts his heart into each couple and makes their ceremony personalized. Eddie and I are proud to say that Michael officiated our own wedding ceremony last November! He made our day special, everyone in our party loved him!
