A Special Message From Us:

We suggest couples "invest" in their ceremony which is the most important part of their wedding day. The ceremony “IS” your wedding! Having us as your Officiants presiding over a wonderful wedding ceremony will be the buzz at your reception from family and guests where your hearts were joined for life. Having the "right "Officiant only makes that happen. We know how to make your ceremony perfect! We have a long track record of officiating experience and our ceremonies are worth far more then what fee you pay for. You want an Officiant that celebrates your ceremony with a larger than life personality. The key here is to secure the right wedding officiant for your ceremony EARLY ON.

Over 90% of wedding ceremonies MIBWO officiates at are Non-denominational. Rev. Carroll is an experienced wedding officiant with valid Legal and Ecclesiastical credentials. He respects all lifestyles and religious traditions, including non-religious and non-religious couple needs. After 3 decades plus of experience, he is old enough having the acquired experience and wisdom, and yet young enough to maintain a sense of humor, to be flexible and engaging during a ceremony. Rev. Carroll is very witty making the ceremony a joyful celebration and officiates the Ceremony while Deacon Ken handles administrative functions and serves as the ceremony Master of Ceremonies. Rev. Carroll officially trained for years in Seminary and was Commissioned as an Officer in the Military Chaplain Service, and was Ordained in person! This two-men approach works well in making sure that all details are covered so that your wedding ceremony is over the top. So having a valid ordained Officiant with over a quarter a century of experience track record giving direction and instructions for your wedding ceremony . . . is invaluable!

Your Ceremony will have the special attention needed to include all the little extra details that MIBWO inter-weaves into your ceremony. The ceremony can be traditional, spiritual, or secular. Carefully chosen words are written by us that reflect you as a couple. The ceremony script guide is used by the Officiant to adjust to the tone and mood of the ceremony on a couple's behalf. We do not use "canned speeches or scripts".

We create ceremonies with sensitivity, humor, and a sense of awe. You will be as pleased as were the many hundreds of couples we married as Officiants. We provide ceremony planning with couples by phone, email, or texting. A consultation meeting, when and if needed, can be arranged.

Beautifully done

The ceremony was lovely and moving. Both gentlemen were professional and kind. A perfect blend of sacred and humor. I was a little nervous before walking down the aisle but they put me right at ease by chatting with me before the processional started. Loved the teasing of my daughter with the remark of how she had to sing a song during the ceremony.

Wonderful all around

MIBWO was honestly the best choice for our wedding. They were just the kindest, most welcoming, calm humans. They are super detailed and didn't leave a single thing out, and not just for the ceremony. they offered so much help with every aspect of the wedding. I was planning all of it by myself so it was nice to have that. i am so beyond grateful for them and all the information they provided. As for the ceremony. We were definitely over the moon with everything. they truly were wonderful and provided such a sweet, heartfelt ceremony for us. Everyone raved about them throughout the night and even weeks after. it was such a great ceremony for us. and i would recommend them to everyone.

What Made Our Ceremony So Special.

My husband, Steve, and I are so grateful we decided to choose MIBWO to officiate our wedding. Michael and Ken went out of their way to make sure our ceremony had a personal and sentimental touch to it. They were incredibly helpful throughout the wedding planning process, from sending us examples/templates of how to orchestrate our ceremony to reminding us why marriage is such a beautiful occasion in the first place. Numerous of our guests commented that it seemed as if they've known us for a really long time, which is a factor that we very much appreciated. I would recommend these services to any who are considering. They absolutely assisted in making our special day as beautiful as it could possibly be!
