Hopkins Wedding

Michael did a fantastic job. He spent time with us during our counseling and was prepared to help us throughout our journey. He was wonderful during the ceremony and kept it fun as we were both nervous. He brought by laughter and smiles to everyone there and our guests were as happy as we were with his service. I definitely would highly recommend him, couldn't have asked anyone better to do it. Thanks again! Surpassed exceptional!

Amazing experience

Michael Calderin was amazing. He took the time to meet with us multiple times to get our premarital certificate and also took the time to chat with us whenever we had questions. He was sincere and kind to us and the wedding guests. He was such a pleasure to work with. Wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to officiate our wedding!

Extremely pleased

Reverend Michael was the absolute BEST to work with. He was literally sent from heaven, when we only had a few days to find our wedding officiant. Michael was referred to us by my photographer and from one day to the next he got us married. He was responsive, diligent, communicative and made us feel so comfortable. He even suggested a few things for our ceremony that were so glad we decided to move forward with because it made our day that much more special and meaningful. Because of him my husband and I now will now share a tradition on our wedding date, each anniversary. I am so thankful we found him, for his words and mentoring despite the short period of time we had at hand. I highly recommend him. Michael knows what he is doing and he will make you and your guests feel at home, happy and at ease. Thank you for being there for us on such a special moment. I look forward to not loosing communication! Blessings everyone.

Rev. Michael from Saint Jude Ministries is truly a gem!! I personally, have shot numerous weddings alongside Rev.

He is punctual, flexible, respectful, open, caring and witty and strives to create a unique wedding ceremony for all who use his services. His ceremonies are intimate and personalized, which draws in each and every guest to be able to connect more closely to the bride and groom. Whether it's casual or more spiritually or religiously-based, Rev. Michael helps to create a customized affair that is both memorable and meaningful for all couples seeking a beautifully arranged ceremony.
