Wonderful experience with Zach Michaud at Old Ways Ceremony
Zach accommodated exactly what we needed for our ceremony. We were in need of someone to help us shape the event and to make it special. He is very intuitive and tailored our ceremony to fit our personalities and to reflect the desires we share in our relationship. Our experience was very memorable!Sent on 01/18/2019

Simple and Personal: Exactly what we wanted
Zachary was incredibly helpful from start to finish. When we initially met Zachary, he got to know us first and then began asking us about the details of our ceremony. He asked my husband and I where we worked, how we met, activities we enjoy doing together. He seemed invested in us as a couple from the very start.Sent on 02/25/2019
He was incredibly easy to correspond with and answered all of my questions in a timely manner through email. After writing our ceremony, we were able to give him feedback and make changes to what he sent us. He was respectful and mindful of our requests and wrote us an incredible ceremony that fit us perfectly.
He was prompt to both our rehearsal and our wedding. He looked real snazzy for both events and made an effort to not only talk with my husband and I, but our families as well.
Zachary was personable and all around delightful. We received many compliments on our choice of officiant.
