    Very happy couple!

    Mike was a very easy officiant to work with! In our initial meeting Mike answered all questions we had and gave some suggestions as well. He offers a HUGE binder of ceremony ideas, complete with readings and different ways to word your ceremony. You essentially get to pick exactly what you want him to say and he will write up the ceremony based on your selections...or in our case allow you to write your own! Mike is a seasoned officiant who is very prompt to answer any and all questions you may have leading up to your big day.

    Kind and professional officiant

    I am very happy to write this review for Mike Backer and would recommend him to anyone. He was so easy to work with, and we knew he was the perfect fit for us the first time we met with him. He has a binder full of suggested wordings for each different portion of a wedding ceremony and plenty of options for readings as well. Even though he provides these wording options, he was extremely open to changes that we made to our ceremony script up until just a few days before the wedding. With our permission he also added a few jokes into the ceremony and went "off script" a tiny bit, which was perfect - just the right amount of humor and personalization without taking too much attention or deviating too far from what we had discussed and had written out in advance. He is genuinely such a great guy and truly a professional. You will have nothing to worry about if you choose Mike for your ceremony!
