Michael is amazing
I had originally hired Michael to be the officiant for my wedding in November. Shortly after signing the contract and paying the deposit, COVID-19 amped up in the US and Illinois went on lockdown. We waited until June to see what would happen but with so many unknowns and no clear signs of the virus subsiding, we made the decision to cancel our wedding and Elope. When I contacted Michael again I was upset and initially told him I just wanted to cancel outright, but Michael was very patient and understanding and helped me find my footing so to speak. He informed me that due to the Virus, the courthouse was closed so we couldn’t even get married without him. He was kind enough to refund part of my deposit ($100) as an elopement ceremony was only $60. We talked a few times on the phone and figured out a location and time for an elopement with just him, my husband and I. Neither of us are religious and He was able to accommodate a non-denominational ceremony. Michael was timely, spoke clearly and enthusiastically during the ceremony. He was very kind and sweet, and seemed genuinely happy to see us wed. I will absolutely recommend him to anyone in need of an officiant. We wouldn’t have wanted anyone else. Thank you!Sent on 06/28/2020

Hitched by MV - Wedding Officiant - Rev. Michael's reply:It was my pleasure to be of service. You have a wonderful family. Thank you for the kind review.
Rev. Michael is super sweet, has a kind heart and is extremely professional. I highly recommend him as an officiant for any event.
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.
Rev Michael is a GREAT Rev. I have worked with him on numerous times, and his ceremonies are flawless. Very engaging. Hope to work with you again soon!
