    Beyond Excellent

    We hired Rev. Michael for our May 2023 wedding and we couldn't have been happier with working with him! He made the whole process very smooth, romantic, and even fun. The first draft of the script was almost perfect as it was as a draft. He was calm and very prepared day of ceremony and helped us be calm. The entire wedding party was singing his praises. I HIGHLY recommend him! You won't be sorry!

    Phenomenal Officiant!

    Stop scrolling and hire Rev. Michael!! He was absolutely wonderful to work with and made our ceremony completely stress free. We received so many compliments on our ceremony due to having him as our officiant. It was everything we could have hoped for. He was so easy to work with and professional throughout the planning process, and having him run the rehearsal made our lives 100x easier. We are so grateful Rev. Michael was our officiant, he was an essential part of our 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.
