Michael was wonderful and so accommodating. We had initially planned a small wedding for October, but decided instead to move the wedding up and do it simply with just us and our three kids (as this was a second wedding for both of us). Michael was very flexible and even came up with the suggestion that we use Rock Creek Park right by our home. With short notice, he moved some other commitments on his schedule to make sure he could do the ceremony at the hour we wished. We picked out a nice beach-y spot right off of the path down by the stream and had our ceremony there. It was perfect and absolutely what we hoped it would be. We would definitely recommend Michael as an officiant!Sent on 08/11/2018

I had so many people come up to me at the wedding and ask me how we found Michael - because he was so amazing! He was our wedding officiant as well as the dance teacher for our first dance. On the dancing, he worked with us on steps and choreography prior to the wedding, and he was so positive we always felt we were doing a good job and progressing. He was great as our officiant - serious yet funny when the occasion demanded and with a great voice that could be heard by all. Michael is reliable and responsible - always showing up early for dance classes and the wedding, as well as just plain fun! We would use his services again in a heartbeat.Sent on 07/29/2018
