Mathew Is The Man
We had the pleasure of having Mathew officiate our wedding and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a minister. When we first sat down with Mathew to discuss our relationship and ceremony, it was like we had known each other for years. It felt like we were talking with one of good friends which relieved all the stress. After only talking for an hour, he had the perfect ceremony in mind. He sent us the draft and we only needed to make minor tweaks. Mathew was very responsive and extremely reliable. On our wedding day, he showed up ahead of time and met with us to confirm any final details. During the actual ceremony, he was incredible and has such a way with words. We received and continue to receive compliments regarding his work.Sent on 10/30/2019
Simply put, Mathew is the man. Do yourself a favor and book him while he's still available.

We talked to many ministers and we are so happy we decided to go with hireaminister! After talking to Mathew over the phone I knew he was the one! We met up with him before our wedding and talked as if we have been knowing each other for a while! He did such a great job officiating our wedding. He made everyone feel comfortable. We had to speed up our ceremony a little and he was able to do that. He was very helpful with any questions I had asked. Very very nice guy! Not to mention his style! I would most definitely recommend him and his team for anyone looking for a officiant!Sent on 08/20/2019

Mat was our officiant and we couldn't have been more pleased! He was professional but also relatable. We connected via FaceTime a month or so before the wedding and spent time telling him about ourselves and our story. When we received his draft for the ceremony it was perfect (I cried)! He has a way with words and did an outstanding job - no one knew we had only known him for a few months. Mat, thank you for making our special day even better - I apologize for crying through a little (most of) the ceremony!Sent on 12/17/2018

Thank you, Mathew!
Holy amazing... Mathew absolutely knocked our ceremony out of the park. We are so incredibly grateful that we met him and feel so blessed that he officiated our wedding. He was effortless and memorized an entire speech without feeling rehearsed. The day we met him, we felt like we had known him for years. Our friends have even reached out and told us how amazing he was. Thank you!!!Sent on 02/25/2019

Matthew created a beautiful ceremony
We attend a larger church in North Texas, and discovered hireaminister after we didn't hear back from the church about an off-site ceremony. We could not have been happier to find him! He met us as Starbucks and got to know us and our story. We talked on the phone a few times about what kind of ceremony we wanted. Matthew asked us questions we hadn't even thought of, and helped us sort out what made sense for us. The ceremony he wrote was absolutely beautiful, and created exactly the romantic feel we were going for. Multiple guests told us they never cry at weddings (including a former wedding planner), but were moved to tears at ours. One guest even asked us where we found our officiant because "he was the most professional he had seen". He was early to both the rehearsal and ceremony, which alleviates so much stress the day of.Sent on 11/17/2018
We could not recommend him more!

Mathew performed our wedding ceremony last weekend. We were blown away by his professionalism, kindness, and interest in what makes us unique and in how he could make our day special. We will never forget how beautiful a job he did for us- and are very grateful to him for it!!Sent on 03/03/2018

I met Matt at a Brik Venue open house and remembered him from Fellowship Church in Grapevine. He looked sharp and spoke so eloquently, so I setup a meet and greet with my fiance at the time, and everyone hit it off, so we booked him immediately. We had two more meetings as well as several emails, and we were able to see our full ceremony well before the big day. He made a custom ceremony just for us - we wanted it short and sweet, and that is what he gave us. He really got to know us and listened to what we wanted. He was helpful for the rehearsal, and he took our marriage certificate for us, and he took pictures with us after the ceremony. I would highly recommend Matt and his team!Sent on 11/21/2017
HIREAMINISTER.com's reply:Cass – you and Sam define what first class looks like. Every single detail of your wedding day at BRIK Venue in Fort Worth was thought through and executed flawlessly. Even though you guys were the center of attention you hosted your vendors, and most importantly, your guests with a level of excellence that was second to none. It was truly an honor to be a part of your special day and help you say “I do” in front of your family and friends. Thank you for your trust and confidence. Congratulations to you guys!

When our original officiant backed out with less than a month to go before our wedding, my husband and I were quite panicked. I was referred to Hire A Minister through my wedding planner and from the minute I contacted them all of my stress went away. Mathew responded promptly and gave me a huge selection of officiants to pick from and we selected Carl Roberts immediately. It was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! Carl took the time to get to know us, made our ceremony sweet & funny since we love to laugh and allowed us to customize our ceremony. We're still receiving compliments on how personal and funny our wedding was, which was exactly what we wanted! Thank you, Carl, for saving the day and making our ceremony truly unforgettable.Sent on 12/06/2017
HIREAMINISTER.com's reply:Thank you, Kaitlin! Having an officiant back out will cause any bride and groom to panic but I'm grateful you and Stephen trusted us to step in and save the day. Hearing you say that selecting Carl to officiate your ceremony at BRIK Venue in Fort Worth was "one of the best decisions you made for your wedding" and that he made your ceremony "truly unforgettable" means the world to us! We were honored to be a part of your special day. Congratulations to you guys!

Matthew was our minister for our wedding and my gosh we could not have been happier to have gone with him. We had a couple options fall through and luckily my husband found HIREAMINISTER a couple of weeks before our wedding. From their website and the bios of all of the ministers they seemed much more our style than what we were finding. We met with Matthew and talked for hours, we all had instant chemistry. He personalized our ceremony to us and was so amazing and so helpful. These people are extremely professional, they dress amazing so they look great in pictures. He was early for everything we asked him to be there for and we could not have been happier! HIGHLY recommend.Sent on 10/09/2017
HIREAMINISTER.com's reply:Thank you so much, Jordan! You are Kartal were so much fun to work and it was such a pleasure to get to know you both! Every minute with the two of you and your family was amazing. It was an honor to be trusted with your big day at The Milestone – Denton Mansion. Cheers to a lifetime of love!

Best officiant company! Pastor Mathew Deblanc, the founder of hireminister was very accomodating. My wife and I were looking for an officiant that would be able to attend our rehearsal and would have a lively personality. Pastor DeBlanc introduced us to Pastor Adrian McConnell. Pastor McConnell was amazing. He had that bubbly personality we were looking for and he was very professional. We felt comfortable with Pastor McConnell from the moment we met him. Pastor McConnell kept in contact with us the entire time during our wedding process making communication very easy which made us feel very comfortable. Adrian McConnell went the extra mile officiating our wedding making sure our big day was wonderful. He is awesome! I would definitely recommend Hireminister to my family, friends and to anyone looking for an officiant for their big day. This is the way to go!Sent on 12/03/2017
HIREAMINISTER.com's reply:Willie – I knew Adrian would be the perfect fit for you and LaKendra and I'm glad you both felt the same way after meeting him! He thoroughly enjoyed his experience with you guys and is forever grateful you trusted him to represent you on your wedding day in front of your family and friends at The Milestone – Aubrey Mansion. Congratulations to you and LaKendra and thank you for your kind words!

Lauren · Married on 06/24/2017
Mathew was such a wonderful person to work with! From the moment we sat down with him to have coffee and chat about what we wanted our ceremony to be like, it was smooth sailing. Shortly after our meeting, he had our ceremony written out and sent it to us within a few days. We had minimal tweaks and that was no problem for him. On the wedding day, after the ceremony was over we had about everyone come up to us and complement Mathew. He was the perfect fit for us and I couldn’t recommend him and the HireAMinister team more!Sent on 09/13/2017
HIREAMINISTER.com's reply:Lauren – thank you so much for these amazing words! I loved getting to know you and Russell and officiating your wedding at Hickory Street Annex in Dallas.

Amie · Married on 05/27/2017
I was planning my wedding from England and after we decided on an intimate backyard wedding I knew we would need to find a minister. I emailed hireaminister.com and never looked back. Mathew made the process so easy and stress-free. Being in England we couldn't meet face to face, so Mathew and I had several FaceTime chats to discuss the ceremony and specifics. I can't praise Mathew or his company enough. Even the guests commented on how great he was.Sent on 11/11/2017
HIREAMINISTER.com's reply:Thank you, Amie! You guys are the best. Crazy to think we planned your wedding ceremony while you were still living in the U.K. and Paul was in Austin, TX! Those international FaceTime chats were fun. Your wedding was fabulous and it was an honor to officiate it!
