About this pro

How does your service stand out?

We have been told from vendors, families, brides and grooms that it SHOWS that we care about our couples and want to give them the best day possible, We are professional, polite, reliable, reasonable and love to interact with our couples. So many guests ask us how long we have known the couple as they think we have been friends with them prior to the wedding!

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love the entire aspect of the wedding process! The groom's face as he sees his bride, the tears streaming when they exchange their vows--the excitement and anticipation . . . the day I stop feeling the pride and honor of performing wedding ceremonies is the day I stop being a wedding minister.

    Reverend Tab and Melanie were great! Their genuine love of Christ is reflected in how they interact with others. Rev. Tab's words were meaningful, supportive and calming. Melanie took care of organizing the flow of the ceremony and music. Everything was perfect!

    Simply Great! Although we had never met in person before our ceremony Rev Tab made the ceremony & once in a lifetime experience feel as if we had known him for years. All I can say is 'Thank You'!

    Reverend Tab was phenomenal. He was very thorough, very professional, and an all around great guy to work with. We had our wedding near Port Sanilac MI in a house we rented on Lake Huron. The ceremony was exactly what we hoped for. He prepared a wonderful ceremony with the perfect personal touches. I wasn't a nervous groom leading up to the wedding until maybe the last 90 minutes. Talking with him directly before the ceremony was like talking with my best friend of twenty years. He was calming and level headed and his experience showed in everything that he said and did.Everyone told us how much they loved the ceremony and how touching it was. He even added a little humor to break the ice and alleviate any uncomfortable feelings two families joining together might have. I found my one true love in my wife Heather, but if I hadn't I would definitely have Tab officiate my next wedding, haha.(Just got a friendly punch in the arm from my wife for that one) I would recommend Tab for anyone that wants their special day to go by perfectly. My advice would be to try and book him on a day that he's not very busy because after fifteen minutes with this guy you're going to want him to stay for the reception, eat his fill, and enjoy his company with the rest of your closest friends and family members.

    Reverend Tab did a good job at our wedding cemetery. He kept it short and sweet and was very happy with the word and Scripture that he had to say. Him and Melanie made sure our day special. Our family's were very happy how he did our cemetery.

    Reverend Tab Martin performed our Wedding Ceremony on July 4, 2014. He was wonderful. Not only did he give up his holiday for us, he was exceptional. He said beautiful things and made our day special. Thank you Reverend Tab.

    Reverend Tab and his wife Melanie were a delight to work with. They made our wedding ceremony seamless and memorable. We would recommend them to anyone looking for an officiate. We will be asking them to join us when we renew our vows in ten years :)

    Reverend Tab did an AMAZING job officiating our ceremony! He kept it short and sweet like we wanted but still made sure it was meaningful and special for us. Even though we were surrounded by people Reverend Tab made it feel like it was just the 2 of us. I got so many compliments on how great of a job he did and how he spoke so beautifully and had so many great points about love, marriage, and God. The whole process from finding him online, to the rehearsal, to the ceremony was very easy. Reverend Tab and his wife Melanie were great at communicating and letting us know what we had to do, I was confident in them the whole time. One of the best decisions we made was asking Reverend Tab to officiate our ceremony, it was perfect!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
As an ordained minister, it is imperative that I remain accountable to God and International Ministerial Fellowship. I am required to submit quarterly reports and renew my ordination annually which entails a fee and a phone interview on the status of my ministry. I am accountable to the fellowship in moral, legal and ethical behavior as a Christian minister. I have recently become a Chaplain and received my credentials through Chaplains International, Inc.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
We DO NOT have a complicated pricing system! Very straightforward, affordable and honest.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Being an ordained minister of praise and worship for almost 25 years, our church moved and we moved leaving me feeling rather empty. A co-worker had asked me to perform his wedding. I told him I had never done a wedding and he said, well, you are a minister, so you surely can do my wedding! That day, I found my calling! I loved it and God has blessed it from that day forward.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Beautiful Wedding Ceremonies! We offer inter-denominational, Christian, inter-faith. If you aren't sure what type of ceremony you would like, let's discuss it.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Read their reviews! Not just the ones they post on their own website, but google them and find out what others have to say. Speak to friends and relatives that have had a positive experience with their wedding minister and ask for a referral. Also, if you are getting married at a hall, golf course, or any type of venue that may have worked with an Officiant in the past, ask them for a recommendation. Confirm how many years they have been performing weddings--talk to them! If they seem haughty, unapproachable or unsure, move on to another minister.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That not all wedding ministers are alike. In all honesty, we had heard some pretty bad reports from couples attending other ceremonies that just make us cringe! PLEASE ask where and how they received their ordination and check out if their credentials are legitimate! There are websites that issue internet credentials for a flat fee--no training, no experience, no knowledge of wedding protocol . . it is scary what couples have run into! You could be their first victim!
