    DeArruda Weddings was one of the officiants listed on Opal Sands preferred vendors lists! I visited the websites listed and Michaels really stood out to me so I set up an appointment! I am SOOO happy he was on the list because we instantly connected with him! Michael is so easy going and personable. He took the time to get to know us and he used what he learned to draft a ceremony that fit us perfectly! He spoke so clearly and had our guests all laughing! Since our wedding my family and friends haven't stopped talking about how great the ceremony was and how wonderful Michael did! I definitely recommend using Michael as your officiant - you will not be disappointed!!!

    DeArruda Weddings's reply:

    Congrats, Laura and Ryan! Your celebration was warm, sincere, fun and relaxed from start to finish. I love doing weddings by the water. Something about the salt sea air, the sound of the surf, and people playing nearby underscores the sense that life is good, it is rich and to be enjoyed. You two are shining examples of this. Your joy is charming. May you be sustained in your marriage by the One who gave us all these wonderful gifts. Thanks for asking me to be part of your special moment. Warmly, Michael

    Enjoyed a beautiful wedding preparation and ceremony experience with Michael DeArruda! He took the time to get to know us as individuals, a couple, and our blended family dynamics. We thoroughly enjoyed the wedding prep course and the ceremony was beyond our expectations even though we had the opportunity to customize the readings and music. Our family and friends commented it was the best ceremony attended because of Michael and his beautiful and inspiration words.
