Reverend Michael Whalen did a beautiful job for our wedding. During our initial meeting he took the time to get to know me and my husband. Throughout the process he was very responsive with e-mails and was so flexible when we had to postpone due to COVID. Highly recommend!Sent on 06/25/2021

Top Notch Officiant!
Rev Whalen was an amazing officiant for our wedding ceremony! He made our ceremony feel so personal and intimate, and my family and friends loved it! He met with us to learn more about us as a couple, which helped him to write a customized ceremony text for us. He also helped with all of the questions we had about the marriage license and made sure everything went smoothly on the day of. I would recommend Rev Whalen to anyone looking for a memorable ceremony!Sent on 05/25/2021
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.
