    Can't Wait for the Big Day

    I spent forever trying to find an officiant that provided quality service. Based on previous recommendations, we decided to go with Michael. He was willing to do video chat for the consultation given how far we are from, and gave us a breakdown of each package he offered. All around a great guy! Can't wait for the big day!

    Michael is so wonderful!

    Michael was amazing from start to finish. He was extremely thorough while creating the perfect ceremony for us. He is so warm and welcoming he felt like family. At rehearsal he was even helpful getting everyone to the right place at the ceremony location. The day of the wedding he was such a comfort to me! He assured me everything would go smoothly, which it did. He is also very funny! He made us laugh and be at ease. I can’t say enough about how happy I am with his services. Thank you!

    Hi Lisa and Jason, now Mr. & Mrs! What a beautiful day on the beach with your family and friends all celebrating your union. The joy flowing between the two of you was just amazing, such a blessing to see. May that continue through every season of your life together. Remember that there is nothing more important than your marriage and family. Everything else should be measured in terms of how it builds you up to fulfill your purpose on this earth. God bless you. Warmly,
    Michael
