~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My name is Rev. Brian Tuttle, and I want to thank you for reviewing my WeddingWire page and website, and all the wonderful reviews by many of our past wedding couples! I want your wedding ceremony - no matter which one of our destination locations you choose, to be the best experience ever! I am a true wedding professional – someone who can bring excitement and passion to your wedding ceremony. And I will bring new ideas, or help you to make your dreams and wishes come true!

Everything is important in regards to your ceremony, and we will work closely together to identify all the elements you desire for your wedding. I will be there to support the entire custom ceremony process, your rehearsal, and pre-ceremony set-up. And will arrive early to your ceremony to ensure that everything for your ceremony is set and ready for your wedding. I work with your wedding coordinator and/or all your vendors to make sure all the details are completed and perfect. And in regards to your ceremony...the performance is just as important as the ceremony words, and I will provide the highest quality for both. I write beautiful, joyous, and inspirational ceremonies. Ceremonies that your family and friends will be both engaged in and amazed by, and talking and bragging about for years to come! Let me help you create a ceremony that reflects you both as a couple, and the love that you feel for each other!

Who am I? Rev. Brian Tuttle (hey, that's 'Me'). I'm a full-time minister, performing missionary work and also an active community and charity volunteer. A highly experienced public speaker with over 40 years of large audience demonstration, education, and speaking experience, and award-winning talent for both writing and speaking. Starting at the ripe-old age of 9, doing 4-H demonstrations - and both Toastmasters groups - Youth, as a teenager - and Toastmasters International, as an adult. I have a God-given talent for writing and performing, and I use this blessed talent to write custom or highly personalized wedding ceremonies. My attention to detail on not only the day of your wedding and rehearsal – but also during our work on your wedding ceremony, will be to make your ceremony the best you have ever experienced…..as a guest or a bride and groom! This is your special day...don’t make a mistake hiring the cheapest officiant you can find. The best is not always the most expensive, but a mistake here costs much more than money….it costs your memories, and the embarrassment of a poor performance in front of family and friends. A poorly written or performed ceremony will be a serious reflection on your entire wedding.

I perform all types of ceremonies – religious, non-religious, spiritual, and themed wedding ceremonies. If you would like a denominational, interfaith, or non-denominational religious wedding - I can help! My upbringing and education were all set in the Lutheran Church, but I am now Catholic - and have the training, experience and knowledge to provide/perform your Catholic-themed ceremony, or Mass. Did your Priest tell you 'No'? Your home Priest won't perform outside of the church/sanctuary - but I can, and I'm here to help! I have experience with many other Christian denominations too. Needing someone for your Spiritual or Buddhist ceremony....how about your Jewish wedding? Are you seeking a Rabbi for Jewish ceremonies, or having a Catholic/Jewish combination wedding? I can assist! It is not my place to judge your religious beliefs, or require that you have a religious faith, and impose my requirements on your wedding. I work both as a minister and wedding officiant so that your ceremony is based on your wants and needs. Are you divorced? I am non-judgmental on your previous marriages, and am here to assist with your new beginning. I don’t require marriage counseling - it is available, but never required. It’s your day…..it should be done your way! There really is a difference – let me prove it to you!

I also invite you to review our wedding portfolio pictures. We have chosen just a small sampling of many of our Northern Michigan and Western and Eastern shoreline weddings - to illustrate how we can make your wedding an outstanding event! What beautiful couples and a wonderful wedding days! From the wedding pictures, you can note that I provide passionate, joyous, and exciting ceremonies that couples and their guests find inspirational and beautiful. Call me today.......I can provide the same for your wedding!

What is it like to be married on Mackinac Island?

It's best to choose a Mackinac Island resident (or me, who lived there of recent)

Please check out this YouTube Video - produced in 2011!

It is shot in a special format at the couples request, but gives a very individual's perspective on what it's like to arrive on our island, and participate in a wedding - enjoy!

    There isn't enough space to express my gratitude towards Rev. Tuttle! Out of all the wedding planning experiences, he was by far the best decision we made for our officiant! At out first face to face meeting, we were blown away with how accommodating he was, since we did not have a specific idea of how we wanted our ceremony to go. Anything we had ideas about, he knew how to use them in the appropriate spots and explore them more if they needed to be. He was very kind, respectful, and extremely easy going. He really understood what we wanted, even if we didn't exactly know. We don't belong to a specific religion and wanted to include religious and non-religious items in our ceremony. He gave us a wide range of ceremony choices and also let us include personal stories to incorporate into our ceremony, that made it our own ceremony. He doesn't just read the same ceremonies over and over again, and really takes the time for each couple to make a ceremony fit their needs. He was able to write a beautiful ceremony out of passages that we selected and the entire ceremony flowed wonderfully!

    Rev. Tuttle provided the most beautiful ceremony for our private and intimate wedding as the sun rose over East Tawas. He was the first wedding officiate we spoke to and he gave us the immediate feeling of comfort and confidence that we needed. The thought didn't even cross our minds to look any further. He accommodated us in every way possible and offered his professional advice when and where we needed it. His attention to detail is amazing. He genuinely cares about the lives of two that are coming together as one. We loved every minute of our ceremony� and wouldn�t have changed a thing! We are so glad we found Rev. Tuttle to help us bring our sunrise ceremony together so beautifully. It was truly amazing!

    Rev. Brian Tuttle was great! He responded very quickly to all emails and always let us know when he would be out of town and unavailable. He was very flexible with meeting times, often scheduling them in the middle of the day when it was most convenient for me and my husband. He worked with us through every step of planning the ceremony and made sure that it was exactly what we wanted. At the end of the process I felt like we had a completely original wedding ceremony created just for us! He arrived at the ceremony 1 1/2 hours in advance in order to do a walk-thru with us. He performed the ceremony beautifully! Many guests commented on his warmth and delivery. Mike and I were so pleased with Rev. Brian's professionalism and service and would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone we know.
