Services Offered
Summit Wedding Services will travel to your wedding venue, and perform wedding ceremonies across the state of Ohio and western Pennsylvania. They provide a PA system for wedding music, included in their officiant services. Their team performs customized vows, so that you can ensure that your wedding ceremony aligns with your vision and ideas. Summit Wedding Services also offers counseling at their spiritual center, and will perform a rehearsal ceremony with you and your wedding party. Wedding ceremony types include:

  • Civil union
  • Interfaith ceremony
  • Non-religious
  • Rehearsal
  • Single religion
  • Vow renewal

All ceremonies include the following:

  • customized ceremonies and vows (Civil, spiritual or Christian)
  • I perform weddings at the venue of your choice. (If you would like a church wedding, please contact me!)
  • no judgment, no hassle service. (Couples living together, 2nd or 3rd marriages and families with children out of wedlock are welcomed with much love!)
  • no contracts! (Most pastors I know do not use a contract.)
  • mileage and rehearsals are included in the fee. (If over 2 hours from my home, an overnight stay may be required.)
  • Ceremonies are performed in OH, PA or WV. (PA requires a regularly ordained minister to perform your ceremony. Check with your local clerk of courts to see if your officiant can sign off on a regular wedding license.)
  • free music with a PA system at no additional charge
  • a Masters degreed, seminary trained, regularly ordained minister with speciality training on performing wedding ceremonies. (I am one of the few regular ministers/pastors on Wedding Wire assigned to a church.)

  • PREPARE/ENRICH pre-marital counseling is OPTIONAL!

Thank you Pastor Michael!

Pastor Michael officiated our May 2023 wedding and was absolutely wonderful to work with! He gave us so many options and suggestions for the ceremony so that it was exactly what we wanted! At the rehearsal dinner, he made sure everyone knew exactly what to do which made our ceremony on the day of the wedding go perfectly. I would absolutely recommend Pastor Michael!

Heart Warming Ceremony

Pastor Michael helped us customize our ceremony months in advance, was flexible to our schedules and went above and beyond to make our day so special! He jumped into action when changes needed to be made and didn’t miss a beat! He gave us suggestions to help our day go smoothly!

Thank you Pastor Michael!

Pastor Michael was great, we loved working with him. We did not choose to use any of his premarital counseling services, but he was always available by phone to answer any questions or go over details about our ceremony. He helped with our rehearsal and was very professional and lively. He was very clear spoken and emotive during our ceremony and allowed us to include some personal touches that we really wanted. It was an all around great experience working with him!
