Congrats! Getting married is awesome and finding the right officiant is a key part of getting the wedding you want, not just what you are “supposed” to be doing. I’ve done hundreds of weddings from traditional to wildly non-traditional, including at the top of remote mountains, Midtown Comics in NYC for a Marvel Comics contest, and at a Mad Hatter’s tea party.
If you want to get married by someone who feels more like one of your weirdo friends than a stuffy authority figure, I’m your dude! Same-sex, non-traditional and last minute ceremonies are a specialty, but anything you can think of, I’m happy to do.
I’ve been doing weddings since 2007 and have married well over 1000 couples. It’s amazing to me that I get to be a part of such an awesome moment with so many people!
Please get in touch and we can talk about what you’re looking for and how I can help that happen!
Other than weddings I’m a full time game designer, own a game shop, and teach design at a few colleges. So I spend my time making people happy and spreading joy, be it weddings or playing games. I live in New Haven with a couple cats, a dog, and a really awesome partner. I’m pretty stoked on life!

We emailed Matt on a Thursday afternoon and wanted to get married 24 hours later, and he said “ok rad.” We spent much of the evening texting about details, including a few quirky additions to personalize the event. He was game for all of it, arrived right on time looking chic and delivered a sweet, thoughtful, funny ceremony that was absolutely exactly what we wanted. He was professional, charismatic, and enthusiastic and I would very much recommend him to anyone who wants something just a little bit different from the traditional service (though it seems like he would be great at those too)Sent on 09/22/2018

Matt was great - responsive, easy to work with, and accommodating. He helped us pull together a very last minute wedding!Sent on 03/03/2019

Matt was great. We ended up writing our whole ceremony, so we didn't use him for that part, but he was supportive and enthusiastic, gave us great feedback, and the best compliment we got was that several guests didn't realize he was a for-hire officiant- they thought he was a friend of ours. He was professional and has a great voice, and was warm and personable.Sent on 06/10/2017
