Mr.Matthew did an excellent job at my wedding on December 26, 2016. He arrived early and patiently waited on us. The scripture that he read for us was perfect. Everything went smoothly. Thank you.Dec 28, 2015Verified
Pastor Matt Made this experience so easy to put together and worry free. He made his services available on New Years Day at no extra cost and even agreed to our mid day service time. The world could use more people like Pastor Matthew Jonhstone !Dec 21, 2015Verified
Matt and Nate were awesome. Could not have asked for anything more. Seriously contemplating flying them out to Kansas for the family ceremony ❤️ HIRE HIM! You won't be sorry!!!Dec 14, 2015Verified
If you're looking for a dependable & reliable officiant for your wedding, you can't go wrong with Matt. Traditional or modern, Matt will find a way to make your ceremony personal and special, be it through his outstanding sense of humor or personal caring and warmth. His interest and understanding in such a broad variety of subject matters allowed him to produce a wonderful sermon that he perfectly tailored to our interests and personalities. Planning a wedding is a lot of stress and work. One way to make the process simpler would be to hire Matt as your officiant and know you'll be getting a personal and memorable service.Nov 3, 2015The Steampunk Vicar's reply
Thanks so much, Joe - it was a real delight working with you, and creating the service that so delighted your bride! -The Vicar
Mr. Johnstone is a consummate professional. He's punctual, organized, and considerate of the needs of his bride and groom. As Mr. Johnstone is a trained actor, you'll notice from your first interaction with him the polish and poise he has with presenting himself -- and that same demeanor will follow through to your ceremony, whether you're being married in front of twelve people or twelve-hundred people. Recruiting him as your officiant will be the best wedding-planning choice you make.Oct 31, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?In general, I'll ask couples I'm marrying to cover my travel costs, in addition to a small honorarium for time spent doing preparation. That honorarium varies depending on the size and intricacy of the wedding, time to prepare, and various other factors.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I prefer to meet in person, time permitting, first to get to know you as a couple, and later to hammer down details (vows, Scriptures, prayers, etc.). Generally this is a shared meal, and is a great, low-key opportunity for all concerned to get to know one another.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I attended Princeton Theological Seminary for three years to receive my M.Div., and was ordained in the Presbyterian Church (USA) in 2011. I also spent a year and a half as a theatre major, and have continued to hone my stage presence ever since.
