Pastor Mike did a wonderful job officiating our wedding ceremony. His guidance before our big day made it easy for us to enjoy our wedding day! I would recommend him to anyone that needs an officiant.Jul 10, 2018Verified
Pastor Mike was fantastic! He was friendly and easy to talk with and very helpful and quick to respond to emails! Couldn't have asked for a better fit for officiant for our wedding. Would highly recommend to a friend :)Aug 17, 2015Verified
We hired Pastor Mike to officiate our ceremony for our wedding, October 7th, 2016. Since recently moving to the west side of state from Detroit, we have not found the right church for us. so naturally finding a officiant for our ceremony was a bit challenging and we were nervous to find someone who could speak to our relationship with each other and god. Pastor Mike made us feel comfortable and accepted. He was flexible on driving from Ypsilanti to Vermontville, MI and made skype calls to get to know us and go over details as well as guide us through the format of our ceremony. He graciously offered advice and made sure we knew that if we should need someone to talk to or seek counsel from that he was a call or email away. He made time to skype with us as the wedding approached to lock in info on the day he and his wife adopted foster children!! Pastor mike delivered a ceremony that was both traditional and down to earth. He was charming and funny and possessed such a warm spirit. We couldn't have created a better fit for the tone we wanted for our nuptials. We decided to write our own vows and he even teared up after we read them. We both truly recommend Pastor mike to anyone seeking counsel or if your planning for a wedding. He is the kind of guy you feel like you have known for years and want to keep in touch with!Oct 23, 2016Verified
Pastor Mike officiated our wedding on 8/29/15. He was absolutely perfect! After struggling to find an officiant that my (now) husband and I felt comfortable with, we saw Pastor Mike's profile on thumbtack. We met a couple of months before the wedding to go over details and he took in all of our requests and made sure he knew what we wanted for our ceremony. He was available leading up until the wedding, answered any questions we had very quickly, and made the entire experience very stress free! At the rehearsal, Pastor Mike took charge of our big wedding party and made sure everyone knew their part for the big day. He gave great suggestions to help the ceremony go smoothly and played a major part in getting everything organized. Our outdoor wedding ceremony went beautifully, he spoke very well and clearly for all of our guests to hear, and made it truly unique and fun. Ten stars for Pastor Mike! We couldn't have been happier. He was a wonderful way of making you feel like you've known him for years and works hard to create a ceremony that YOU want. If you want someone who is light hearted and fun, that will work with you, listen to what you want for your big day, and truly make your wedding ceremony special - book Pastor Mike!Sep 25, 2015
He truly did it all. From helping to put together the steps for our ceremony to be what I envisioned to executing the ceremony with laughter and smiles :) I felt at ease during my ceremony (in which right before with prep into the ceremony, I admit, I was STRESSED). There was a comforting calm over me during the ceremony, everything was "perfect"....a combo of the officiant and the presence of God. It was truly a BEE-autiful ceremony! :pSep 21, 2019Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to meet with the couple to get to know them, hear their story, and discuss the wedding ceremony. I attend the rehearsal, and I am always early the day of the wedding.
