    The BEST in the business!!!

    Working in a wedding venue for 4.5 years, my now husband and I have seen countless officiants and nobody compares to Reverend Michael. He makes every ceremony unique and puts his heart into it. We always said he would be our officiant when our turn came.
    Reverend Michael, I don't even know where to begin. You exceeded our expectations. Words can't describe how thankful we are for you. Our ceremony was BEYOND beautiful and you made it so special for us. We wish we could do it all again just to experience it one more time. You made us laugh, you made us cry, and most importantly made us feel comfortable. We have had countless people tell how much they loved the ceremony, how beautiful and unique you made it, and how amazing you are. Reverend Michael, you are by far the best in the business. Thank you for being apart of the best night of our lives and making it so special for us!
    Lots of love,
    Emily & Matt Messer

    Reverend Michael officiated our wedding in April 2018 at Vizcaya and he did an outstanding job! Neither my husband nor I are very religious yet we still wanted a reverend / priest / pastor to marry us to make our parents & grandparents happy (since we weren't doing it in a church, had to give them something LOL). When looking for a reverend I was recommended Michael and I am so happy we booked him! He gave us the perfect of a somewhat minor religious ceremony with a more light-felt, personable and fun ceremony! The ceremony was extremely personable and did not feel generic or overdone, he added a lot of funny and beautiful comments to really make the crowd cry, laugh, smile and feel all emotions in a 24 min service. Everyone commented after how much they loved our ceremony and how it was better then theirs (lets be real, its all a competition when it comes to weddings haha, jk). Thanks Reverend Michael, you helped to make our wedding unforgettable.

    Reverend Michael was an absolute delight and extremely professional with a wonderful sense of humor! All of our guests enjoyed him tremendously and we appreciated all of his counsel, advice, guidance, and suggestions. We are so blessed to have found him and to have him officiate our wedding! If we ever renew our vows, or if any of our friends need a pastor, I would not hesitate to recommend him! Thanks so much Michael for making our 'rainy day' wedding so very special!

    Reverend Michael Calderin was amazing! We instantly felt comfortable with him from the moment we met. He is beyond kind and offers great life advice. He is very personable and knows how to throw in a few jokes! We will continue to stay in touch with him! We highly recommend his services. He truly is the definition of a great genuine person!

    Rev. Michael Calderin is the best! He was the officiant for my brother in law's wedding two years ago, and even though we weren't even planning a wedding yet, my now husband and I knew that day that we wanted him to officiate our wedding as well. He is super friendly, personable, funny, easy going, and made us both feel very comfortable, which made planning everything a breeze! He is the perfect mix of sincerity and humor. I can't imagine anyone else having officiated our wedding, and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone! Thank you again for everything!

    Reverend Michael was amazing from start to finish. When we first met with him he was very personable and made us feel at ease. He got us to talk and think about things that we may have not talked about on our own. He was always responsive when we needed him. Our ceremony was just perfect. It was the right mix of humor and seriousness. We got so many compliments from our guests about how beautiful our ceremony was and how wonderful the reverend did. In the middle of the ceremony a train went by twice unexpectedly and while I was a little flustered, Reverend Michael made a joke out of the situation and put it out of everyone’s minds by providing laughter. I highly recommend him!

    Rev. Michael Calderin is by far the best wedding officiant ever! He not only was very professional, but was also very understanding and accommodating to our individual needs for our ceremony. He was also extremely friendly, funny and knowledgeable, and was everything we could have ever asked for in an officiant.

    Rev. Calderin is worth every penny and my wife Alison and we would recommend him without hesitation.

    Rev. Michael Calderin is the best wedding officiant hands down! He took the time to cater our ceremony to our individual needs and received glowing reviews from all of our guests. He combined his great sense of humor with his deep knowledge of scripture and turned the ceremony into a heart warming, enjoyable, and personal celebration. Rev. Calderin is worth every penny and I would recommend him without hesitation.

    Reverend Michael was amazing! He was just the right mix of sincerity and humor. He was able to read us like a book after having spent a year talking to him about ourselves which made the ceremony fantastic! He mixed Spanish and English as well as Judaism and Christianity flawlessly. His passages and poems were perfect and we asked him for a copy of each. He was able to lighten the mood just when necessary. He was absolutely mobbed at the cocktail hour with many people thanking him for a wonderful ceremony and asking him to do theirs. His advice was spot on to us! Thanks so much Rev. Michael!!

    Reverend Michael Calderin is the best! I have known him for years... Although I am a practicing Jew, he officiated my daughter's wedding in February. He did an amazing job of blending two families and two faiths. He incorporated both Hebrew and Christian traditions in a manner which made the ceremony very special for everyone who attending. He is an amazing man who makes everyone fell special and included.

    Reverend Michael Calderin officiated my wedding on February 17, 2018. As a Jewish girl, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that a Reverend would officiate my wedding. However, before I even got engaged to my Christian husband, my parents attended a wedding that Michael officiated and they came home raving about how they found the perfect person to officiate my wedding some day. I took their word for it and I am so glad that I did. Michael was able to mix our two faiths beautifully. On my wedding day and on the days leading up to it, he went above and beyond and did everything that he could to calm my nerves and make me feel comfortable. I cannot imagine my wedding without Michael as my officiant. I highly recommend him to anyone and everyone.

    Rev Mike was the best decision we made for our wedding ceremony and also for our future. He is far more than just a wedding officiant. He is a great person and now a great friend. He went beyond our expectations and took the time to not only get to know my husband and I but also develop a friendship with us. He delivered such a beautiful ceremony. He included readings that fit our personalities and relationship perfectly. Our friends and family couldn't stop talking about it how much they enjoyed the ceremony. During the premarital meetings he makes you feel so comfortable and at ease. I can't say enough good things. I'm so grateful for his involvement in our marriage and plan to continue seeking guidance from him throughout the different phases of our lives.

    Mike is the kindest most warm hearted person I’ve met. He helped us through so much. His words melt your heart. It’s unexplainable. He had the audience speechless! He truly captured every single moment between my wife and I. Especially being a same sex marriage he was able to connect on a level with us and the audience. My wife is a cop and some fire trucks went by in the middle of the ceremony and we had to pause s peaking.... he picked back up by saying “as you can see, their love is on fire!” Everyone and I mean everyone was crying, laughing and in awe by his gift of what he says. The connection I had with my wife because of Mike’s words, uniting our love together and letting everything flow together you can tell, truly comes from his heart. From his counseling, his wisdom and his over all presence... the way he can capture an audience is honestly PRICELESS!!! Thank you Michael Calderin for helping us have the best day of our life! We will never forget you!
