What an amazing man! He is super nice, charming, professional, AFFORDABLE, and very accommodating! He will meet with you as many times as you want prior to your wedding. He does not do rehearsal but will do a private 'rehearsal' with just you and your soon-to-be-husband/wife. Plus, he can do all of your paperwork, no need to visit the county office/court house! Bonus, he has a lovely speaking voice :) Your the best Pastor Mike!

Amazing San Diego beachfront wedding
We were so thankful that Pastor Mike was available and helpful in planning and officiating our January 2019 wedding. His warm and supportive demeanor, humor, and accessibility put us at ease and made us feel like we were in good hands. Pastor Mike made it possible for us to have a storybook wedding with less than 3 weeks of planning. He helped us compile beautiful vows and took care of all the paperwork. He was a big reason that the entire wedding planning and ceremony was low-stress and fun. Thank you, Pastor Mike!

Flexible and Professional
Pastor Mike was warm, friendly, and professional. He’s extremely flexible and hands on in writing the ceremony with couples, and very informative about the legal process. Nothing felt rushed or overwhelming while tackling preparations with him. It’s clear he really loves what he does.
