Introduction: Having officiated weddings since 2002, I work to partner with the wedding coordinator or family to ensure that the following is true for each wedding I officiate: - Each member of the wedding party is comfortable with their role in the ceremony. - All aspects of the ceremony are conducted efficiently and professionally. - The wedding couple and attendees participate fully in the joy of the moment. - Marriage documentation is easily and successfully processed. My communication style is witty and warm, making room and giving focus to the couple’s love and act of commitment.

Wedding Officiant

Matt officiated my wedding and did a fantastic job! He was prompt with his responses to our questions and reached out to set up the script with us, in addition to being punctual and professional at the wedding itself. I highly recommend him!

Matt was awesome! He was quick to respond and answered all of my questions plus questions I didn’t even think of. My Husband and I even decided to do pre marital counseling with him and we really enjoyed it. He showed up for the rehearsal on time and was early for the wedding day. Our guest complimented him several times and we were so thankful to have him officiate our special day. We highly recommend him!

All it took was one phone call with Matt to know we had found our wedding officiant. He explained the process of preparing our ceremony. He provided sample scripts that helped make our decision much easier. He added his own sense of humor and unique blend of oratory skills to make our wedding ceremony perfect. We definitely recommend Matt to officiate your wedding. Five star experience!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Matt! It was a difficult decision for us to hit an officiant that we never met before the wedding day, but Matt is so personable that everyone was comfortable. He catered our ceremony to exactly what we wanted, and mailed out marriage certificate the same day of the wedding. The feeling Matt brought to our ceremony was the feeling like we’d known him forever. You will not be disappointed if you choose him as your officiant!

Wedding Officiant

Matt provided an amazing service and experience on our wedding day, and even long before that day. When we first started searching for an officiant, it quickly became overwhelming. As soon as we found Matt and his services, it was smooth sailing from there on out. His responsiveness was impressive from the start - he took a phone call with us to get to know us personally, provided us with a standard script (that we were able to alter and make our own) and sample of his work/audio recordings. Although Matt had not known us as a couple, he really injected great humor, comfort, and knowingness of us into our ceremony and we were so impressed and at ease the entire time. Additionally, he made sure we were COVID comfortable the entire time (offering mask/no mask at our comfort). And let's not forget the man froze his butt off in the unexpected GA snow the day of our outdoor 6-guest wedding (as you'll see pictured below) without hesitation or compliant! We HIGHLY recommend Matt and are eternally grateful for him not only being a part of, but making, our day!

FAQs

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

    My rates reflect the number of elements needed from the officiant. A basic service would include a more general ceremony. If there is a desire for pre-marital counseling, participation in a wedding rehearsal, a customized ceremony or participation in the wedding reception, the rate would reflect those services.

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

    I typically desire to spend 15-20 minutes in a phone call with 1 or both members of the wedding couple, enabling me to identify how I can best be of help. At that point, we are able to define the services desired and set rates and schedules during which those can occur.

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

    I've earned a Bachelor's Degree in Theology, worked for the United Methodist Church for 15+ years and have performed weddings both for parishioners and friends. I have a polished approach to pre-marital counseling, coordination of the wedding party during the ceremony, and the public speaking required of an officiant.
