Introduction: COVID VACCINATED! While cash is preferred, I am also accepting Vinmo and Zelle for payment. I am a retired ordained minister willing to officiate any marriage or commitment ceremonies as an inter-denominational person to all regardless of their religion, race or sexual orientation. I'm very flexible and willing to do something as simple as ask if each one takes the other and signing the certificate to a full-fledged ceremony. My fee includes any meetings necessary to create the ceremony tailored to your request. I do offer a $50 discount for a Sign-N-Go meetup. I do not have formal pastoral vestments. While I am able to provide services for all denominations if you are wanting someone well versed in particular procedures I may not be the right selection. Typically a ceremony consists of an opening statement or prayer, a reading of various options, vows and exchanging of rings, marriage announcement and final blessing. All of this can be adjusted to accommodate requests for those wishing no mention of God. If I respond to your search this means I have checked my calendar to ensure I am available the day and time you have listed in your request. Feel free to call or text the phone number on file. If you call and reach my voicemail, the message begins with disconnect tones to discourage robocalls. Your consideration is greatly appreciated! PLEASE NOTE: Thumbtack charges a fee to everyone you select as a potential officiant. Hopefully this information is helpful when selecting several possibilities. TRAVEL FEE: If your venue is more than 45 miles from the Gilbert (85233) area I may request an additional $50 travel fee to cover mileage and gas expenses. May you experience a wonderful ceremony no matter who you select as your officiant!

Rev. Michael is a great officiant for our small wedding. He accommodated us in many ways (dressing, ceremony process, etc.), and he was nice and polite throughout the ceremony. I would recommend Michael to any couples who are preparing for their wedding.

Wedding Officiant

I would like to press all FIVE of the default "what did you like about working with Rev. Michael." This man really made my husband and I's day perfect. He was so kind and genuine and even learned something new so that we could have our hand fasting ceremony. We aren't super religious, but we do believe in God, and Rev. Michael knew right where to meet us in the middle with the perfect things to say. He was responsive, flexible with time, and a pleasure to work with. His kind words after the ceremony meant so much to Sean and I, we couldn't have chosen a better officiant.

Rev. Michael did a phenomenal job. He was professional, funny, and coordinated the ceremony very well. He made the process very easy up to our wedding. We are very pleased with the service he provided and happy he was our officiant. Thank you so much.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The amount I request includes any meetings prior to the ceremony (including rehearsal if needed) travel and filing license with the appropriate bureau.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Discussing the type of ceremony, formatting the opening, vows and anything else the couple wish to include in the service. Most of this can be done with a phone call. I then submit a final copy to the couple to go over and make any changes they desire to make the event personal to them.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been an ordained minister for over 30 years and have performed multiple marriage ceremonies during that time. I have also taken notes from ones I attended where a different officiant conducted the service to gain insight to different ways of officiating weddings.
