Wedding Officiant

We are so very glad to have met Pastor Michael and were blessed to have him as our Officiant! From the beginning it just felt right; he was professional yet easy to talk with, inquired about our story, listened attentively, took notes, and enjoyed getting to know us, as we did with him. The day of our wedding, Pastor Michael arrived early, made everyone feel comfortable, and truly did a tremendous job with our ceremony! We chose traditional vows, and included handfasting; he cleverly transitioned and eloquently captured the essence of our relationship, bringing even more to the ceremony than we had anticipated! Pastor Michael is a natural and we HIGHLY recommend him as an Officiant!!! (Plus he looks good in our photos!) Thank you, Pastor Michael!!!

Wedding Officiant

What can I say ? Michael has done an absolute job with my wedding yesterday 10/21. I couldn’t ask for a better pastor very professional and patient with us while we had some issues before the wedding. He was very spiritual and funny and made our wedding a very tremendous event. My wife and I are very satisfied with his work and couldn’t be more amazed then we were yesterday. I would definitely recommend him as a pastor if anyone is looking for an officiant. Thank You Micheal From Mr & Mrs. Jones

Wedding Officiant

When looking for a Pastor, we were in for a challenge from growing up in the Catholic church, but not currently practicing in shared religion. When originally searching, I felt discouraged to find officiants who had such high price tags without even offering to do a rehearsal! Going back to the drawing board, I searched instead for the quality of an officiant. An INCREDIBLE quality that Pastor Michael offers is 6 month follow up marriage counseling. It is about the marriage not the wedding as it says on his website! Though intimidating, Pastor Michael impressed with flying colors when he was pre-screened by the Mother-in-Law, other family, and the bride. Throughout the whole meeting he was professional and showed a clear understanding of what the bride and groom had in mind for the ceremony. Pastor Michael kept things clear, direct, and simple. He is transparent and very, very good at leading weddings! He made the rehearsal feel so easy and kept everything flowing well during the wedding ceremony. Pastor Michael added SO many personal touches to our ceremony with the surprise description about the symbol of rings to a blessing in Latin and impromptu humor when our ceremony was delayed due to a temporary power outage. Guests at the wedding asked “where did you get this Pastor? He was SO AWESOME!” We HIGHLY recommend him for anyone getting married in Colorado, because he will be everything you want and MORE in order to make your wedding day (and future lives together) incredible and unforgettable!

FAQs

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

    My quote includes: initial consultation, 1 hour plan the ceremony session, custom ceremony, filing marriage license, travel time & costs within 470, and a 1 hour post wedding coaching session with Michael and Diana (valued at $125). Travel costs may vary for rehearsal and/or ceremony depending on time and distance. Typically, inside the 470 loop is included (or an additional $50 within 15 miles/30 minutes outside of 470). Travel costs outside of the 470 loop includes time compensation, tolls, mileage rate and fuel costs (often in mountain terrain) at a flat rate of $75.00 per hour. For trips of 3 hours or more one way, lodging is greatly appreciated for Pastor Michael.

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

    I want to invite you into our home so we can meet face to face and get to know one another. When we meet I want to take the time to listen to you share YOUR STORY, answer your questions and talk about your plans for the ceremony. I want to make sure you are confident and secure in making the decision of who will have the honor of standing with you on your wedding day.

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

    I am an ordained minister and a graduate of St Michael's Seminary. I have been conducting weddings since 1985 and my wife, Diana and I have been involved in marriage mentoring as a couple with couples since 1990.
