Rev Mike is the best!!

We had a destination wedding, it was important to us the ceremony feel personal, not generic so selecting the right officiant was important to us. Reverand Mike was the perfect choice!
Not only was he super helpful connecting us with other vendors (he knows EVERYONE! and everyone LOVES him!) He guided us through the process of securing a marriage license and everything we needed to know leading up to the big day. Our calls leading up to the wedding were helpful for him to get to know us and to provide guidance and advice. During the ceremony he incorporated personal stories, along with humor. Many of our guests have commented after how special it was. Choose Reverand Mike and you can't go wrong!

Everyone at our wedding loved him and he made our ceremony beautiful & special! We appreciate you so much Reverend Michael!

Oct. 22, 2023 best wedding ever

It took us a long time to leave a review, not because I wasn't sure of how many stars to give you but , how to write, how grateful we were. From our first conversation on the phone, it felt like you were family. My guest thought you knew me for a long time, when in fact it's only been a year since we started planning. Thank you so much for making us feel special. Everyone laughed, and cried, and enjoyed every part of the ceremony. This only happens, when someone puts so much care in the work they do. I enjoyed the pre marital meetings. I haven't laughed so much with someone I was meeting for the first time, and BTW I am so happy you enjoyed the cake so much.

Thank you again for making our day so extra special. We enjoyed every minute of your sermon.
Much Love,
Cesar and Eva
