    Phenomenal!

    We had met a few vendors before Reverend Michael and they made it feel like a business. The minute we met Reverend Michael, we knew he was the perfect fit for us. He was energetic, sincere, and personable. He created a personalized, romantic ceremony for us and gave us carte blanche to edit until our hearts content. We customized and personalized our story, our vows, and our readings. Through Reverend Michael, we were able to tell the story of our love and it was perfect. Not only was working with us easy, but the way he delivers the ceremony was heartfelt, professional, and genuine. His cadence and his voice left a mark on the event. We highly recommend Reverend Michael!

    Fantastic!!

    We had our wedding in Point Pleasant, NJ and Rev. Whalen went above and beyond to ensure our ‘special day’ was special. During the build up we had open lines of communication, he catered to all of our needs, let us take the lead and offered guidance without instruction. On the ‘big day’ he made everyone in attendance feel very welcome and he put my wife and I at ease. The ceremony was outside and rain was in the forecast, Rev. Whalen ensured that the service was heart felt, thorough and that nobody got wet at the same time! We were able to have a lovely ceremony, everyone stayed dry (just) and this was all part to Rev. Whalen. To be able to deliver a beautiful service and work in potentially difficult conditions, shows just how experienced and professional he is. We would recommend to anyone!

    Thank you Michael!

    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!

    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.
