Rev. Whalen helped to make our wedding day special and memorable.Sent on 06/20/2018
The wedding ceremony is such a special moment and you want someone that helps make it a memorable moment- and rev Whalen did just that!
He is an excellent speaker and all of his speaking segments were well phased and worded. He took the time out to get to know us a little and he personalized the welcome to say something nice and touching about us- I received so many compliments from our guest.
He responded quickly to all of our emails and he worked with us to make any and all adjustments to ensure that the ceremony would go just as we wanted.
He helped guide us with the wedding license and even filed it for us afterwards!
We could not have had a better officiant.
You won’t be disappointed.

Rev Michael Rocks!
We loved Rev Michael from the first time we met with him in person. We really wanted to meet and connect with someone in person rather than on the phone or video chat. Michael met with us free of charge and really got to know us. He cares about your personal story and he makes the ceremony special. We also did not want someone who was cracking jokes or trying to be funny and Michael respected that. The ceremony he provided was exactly what we went over with him and it was perfect. We are so glad we found him! We also had guests speaking about how much they loved our ceremony and Rev Michael! Thank you!Sent on 06/11/2019

Rev. Michael Whalen was hands down amazing! He was such a pleasure to work with and made the process simple, stress free, and fun. He was so professional and we started to feel like he really knew us for a long time! On our wedding day he made us feel at ease, and everything went smoothly! We are so happy we chose him as our officiant!Sent on 06/24/2019
Michael's friendly and personable manner always makes for a pleasant atmosphere at every ceremony he officiates! I recently worked with Michael (for the second time) on a wedding ceremony at The Rockleigh Country Club in Rockleigh, NJ. Michael's professionalism added to the already classy atmosphere at The Rockleigh. To be sure things ran smoothly, he came by to greet me and my violinist before the ceremony to get all music cues coordinated. The ceremony went on without a glitch and Michael delivered his usual quality work! I would highly recommend him as a wedding officiant and look forward to crossing paths on the job with him again soon!
Dear Brides-to-Be! Reverend Michael Whalen's excellent ease to work with, his professionalism and perfect appearance make Reverend Whalen a pleasure to recommend to our Brides. When you choose Reverend Whalen, you have the confidence, and peace of mind, in knowing that you will have chosen a true professional!

I have had the opportunity of working with Rev. Whalen at several weddings. He is a pleasure to work with. He works with each bride and groom individually to make sure the ceremony is exactly what they want. He has a warm, kind, personality. He is accomodating to work with and right on top of what needs to get done to have a successful wedding ceremony. I look forward to working with him on future weddings. I highly recommend his service to everyone.
