I am thrilled to have been voted the #1 Best Officiant in Orange County, California for 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, & 2015 by MyFoxTelevision HOT LIST viewers.

And I am also very proud to be one of a handful of Orange County, California Officiants, and the only Laguna Beach Officiant to be listed on the "Martha Stewart's WeddingWire" web site. https://www.weddingwire.com/reviews/reverend-michael-wedding-officiant-laguna-beach/fe663400bf5c9c9d.html

I am competitively and reasonably priced, and offer numerous options, customizations and personalization's not typically offered by other Officiants. I am a full time Orange County, California Wedding Officiant and I stopped counting after 2,000 Ceremonies. I Officiate at all Orange County, California Hotels, Country Clubs, Parks, Chapels, Beaches and Residences with Personalized, Non Denominational Wedding Ceremonies.

I offer a totally personalized Ceremony from the very beginning to the very end.
By utilizing my services you get the option to decide every word of your Wedding
Ceremony, if you want to and you get three choices:
1. Do absolutely nothing. I will compile a very nice, romantic Ceremony for you.
2. Choose any one of the Ceremony samples I send you and make any alterations you wish.
3. Mix and match between all the Ceremony samples I send you, make any changes you wish and add anything you wish.

After your Ceremony, I send you your final Ceremony text and a Certificate of Marriage, and you get to keep them as keepsakes.

"Your Ceremony words are the most important part of your Ceremony", and you can easily pick out or compile the Ceremony you want. The feedback I receive from couples is that after they have picked out their Ceremony text and the promises they want to make to each other, they are much more in tune with their Ceremony than other couples and their "Ceremony Words" have so much more meaning to them than a typical fill in the blank, canned Ceremony. They also get a greater realization of the importance of their vows, their feelings for each other and the institution of marriage. It will also make a major difference for your families and guests during your Ceremony and the memories of your special day.

If you are having your Ceremony outside the Orange County, California area and wish to compile your own personalized Ceremony, hand it to your Officiant or Justice of the Peace and say, "Here read this". I have compiled a book titled: "Wedding Ceremonies Devoted to Love and Commitment". http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/reverendmichael

After reading all of the reviews we selected Reverend Michael to officiate our wedding and we are so glad we did!

He had so many ideas for our ceremony and took so much time answering all my questions and helping me plan everything out. He is very well spoken and arrived early to our wedding to meet our families and go over things with everyone. We had so many comments on how well he did and how special our ceremony was.

Reverend Michael was quick to respond to any questions I had. He was very organized and had many options to choose from so that we could compile our own wedding ceremony that fit our personalities. He has a lot of experience and advice to help make your day special. He did a wonderful job and everything went seamless on our wedding day. I highly recommend Reverend Michael to help make your big day complete and worry free.
