Welcome, congratulations and best wishes on your upcoming wedding.
My name is Michael Rye, an ordained Pastor and licensed Wedding Officiant in Maryland, Washington D.C, Commonwealth of Virginia and West Virginia. I offer unique wedding ceremonies for couples that last between 15 - 30 minutes depending upon if you want a Simple Ceremony or one that is more customized. With my wealth of experience and ideas, I serve all styles of weddings from religious, non-denominational, Military, interfaith, LBGTQ and vow renewals.
I offer a free 60 minute consultation either in person, phone or video conference to get to know you and get a feel for the style of ceremony that you would like for yourselves, family and friends.
My service fee starts at $250 for a simple ceremony up to $450 for a customized ceremony, which includes up to 3 edited versions for you to choose from as we develop a ceremony that is uniquely yours.
I have over 20 years experience in the Wedding Industry here in the United States and Australia, where I come from. So with my Aussie accent and warm inviting personality, my ceremonies include arriving up to 60 minutes before the ceremony to help ease the nerves and afterward to take some photos with the happy couple.
So please reach out to me by phone, text, email or video conference as it would be my honor to be part of your special day together.

The Hilarious and Genuine Steady Hand You Want as an Officiant
Michael was a wonderful addition to our day, he exuded a natural professionalism, a love for life, and a witty sense of humor. He was very intentional in every interaction with us and added small touches to enhance our beautiful day. Michael made me laugh when I was nervous, guided us through last minute logistics, and of course gave a perfect ceremony. We can’t imagine the day without him and will recommend him to all our friends.Sent on 07/19/2020

Great Officiant! Very professional, prompt and excellent quality of service
Michael was great! We found him on Thumbtack and he did an excellent job. We had no idea where to begin and he certainly helped ease our worries with his guidance. You also have to love his Australian accent! What a nice guy! Very easy to work with, prompt, professional and excellent quality of service. Thank you!!!Sent on 11/24/2020
