    Great guy!

    We couldn’t be happier with our decision to work with Michael. From our first contact through to our ceremony, his professionalism and kindness made the process much more enjoyable and comfortable than it likely would have been otherwise. Not only did we appreciate his attention to detail leading up to the big day, but his composed manner on the day of was truly calming.

    We would also highly recommend the couples coaching sessions. Though these were low-key and fun, they absolutely strengthened our relationship and helped us discover some great new things about each other. Michael’s experience really showed as we never felt pressured, but he made it really easy for us to open up. He really is a great person.

    Thanks Jonathan and congrats on marrying Soo. The two of you were meant for each other. Strong, kind, gentle, and so respectful in your love and care. Everytime I have the honor of working with a couple I am invited into the sacred space of your relationship. You two are the picture of tenderness and appreciation that marriage is all about. I wish you deep, rich, abiding love that gives you reason to celebrate being alive. Warmly,
    Michael

    Fantastic Service

    Michael DeArudda made our beach wedding go pretty much perfect. His insightful comments as well as his delivery of the nuptials was spot on. He made my wife and I very comfortable through out the whole process and I couldn’t think of anyone else that I would have perform such a meaningful ceremony!

    So happy for the two of you, Mr. & Mrs. R. The gift of love and the promise of life together founded on the vows of marriage could not be more cherished by a couple than I saw with you. Thank you for the honor and joy of creating and presiding over your ceremony. You have been blessed with a profound appreciation for the gift you are to each other.
