    Short and sweet

    Rev. Michael was great. It was a strange thing inviting a stranger into our home to do our wedding ceremony, but I'm so glad I went with Rev. Michael. He never once was awkward and we felt like we knew him from the minute he got there. It was short and sweet and he took care of all the details of the ceremony and wedding license afterward. If you're on the fence...hire him...you won't be sorry. Thanks again!!!

    Awesome Service with Hitched by MV

    We couldn鈥檛 be more happy with the way our wedding ceremony was conducted. Hitched by MV was there for us from the second I reached out to him until a few days. He had a beautiful ceremony written for us.

    I'm happy to have been of service. Thank you so much for the kind words. I wish you and Brendan nothing but the best!

    Sweet elopement style ceremony

    Rev. Michael made our small elopement style ceremony a simple and comfortable experience. He is very responsive and walked us through every step of the ceremony, providing personalized options/wordings that worked for us. The planning portion of the ceremony was simple and efficient, given we were on a shorter time frame. Rev. Michael worded the different parts of the ceremony nicely. He did a wonderful job ensuring that my 9 year old daughter was appropriately included in the ceremony experience, as well. He even worked with us to include a last-minute request. I was worried that with an 11-person wedding event, there may be moments of awkwardness, but Rev. Michael made sure of a nice flow of the ceremony. He even trudged through wet grass to get to our ideal ceremony location in a forest preserve! Rev. Michael is kind and professional and I would recommend his officiant services any day!

It was a pleasure working with Rev. Michael from beginning to end. The first meeting we had with him my client was very pleased and when we communicated with him via email afterwards he was very responsive. The day of the wedding Rev. Michael was there early to go over any details which helped my client be at ease. As a wedding coordinator I look forward to continue to work with Rev. Michael in many more weddings.
