Reverend Whalen is Amazing!
We had seen Reverend Whalen at several of our friends weddings prior to our own, and we knew he was exactly who we wanted. Reverend Whalen did an absolutely amazing job during our ceremony. Our guests commented several times at how well spoken Reverend Whalen was, as well as how thoughtful his words were. On top of what a pleasure it was to work with him, he is extremely responsive during the planning process and offers help/advice whenever needed. We have re watched our wedding video countless times, and the ceremony is still our favorite part.Sent on 12/11/2019

Reverend Michael helped us make our wedding exactly what we wanted. This was done with little time left until the wedding due to a change of plans on our end. We are so thankful for his services!!Sent on 11/21/2019

Reverend Whalen was the best! He was so knowledgeable and walked us through everything. We had no idea what to do and every-time I emailed him a question, he answered very quickly. He walked us through the marriage license and also arrived to the venue early to make sure we had everything. He also sent me a reminder a few days before to remind me of the little things I needed.
Reverend Whalen was very well spoken, warm hearted, and humorous. He was the perfect combination. We highly recommend him. Most weddings have very boring ceremonies but not with Revered Whalen.
I cant express enough how great of an experience we had.Sent on 11/18/2019

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!

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.
