  • Before my daughter was even officially engaged, I had begun the search for a wedding officiant. We were not on the same page. My husband and I wanted her to have a traditional Catholic church wedding, which was not what she envisioned for her wedding ceremony. I wanted a priest, but I knew that a priest would not marry a couple outside of the church. So I was thrilled when I found Men In Black Wedding Officiants through a google search. I knew from the moment we contacted them that they were the perfect fit for what I wanted and for what my daughter wanted. They are very detailed oriented and always answer any questions very promptly. To say they are organized is an understatement! On my daughter's wedding day, we were all very excited to meet Rev. Msgr. Carroll and Rev. Warne. They are both very friendly and have a great sense of humor. The ceremony couldn't have been more perfect. After the ceremony, guest after guest came up to my husband and me and commented on how beautif... Read more

    This couple and their families were a joy to work with. The setting for the ceremony was breath-taking. We custom-designed the ceremony for this couple as we do with every couple, to highlight the Sacred with humor, and the result was that we provided an inviting and engaging atmosphere for all who attended the wedding ceremony. The couple and their families were gracious and wonderful people. We wish the couple many happy years together. We are happy that so many of the couple's guests complimented the couple and parents, about the ceremony we officiated at. Such a beautiful family. Thank you. Regards, Revs. Carroll and Warne

  • I was privileged to attend A wedding where Michael and Ken officiated. They stepped in on very short notice and officiated at a beautiful bayside wedding. Ken had everything planned down to the last detail. The ceremony was absolutely lovely. Michaels sermon Was meaningful and personalized. The invitation to all people in a committed relationship to renew their vows to each other was beautiful. Many of the guests commented on the beauty of the ceremony. I would highly recommend them.

  • We knew from the first time we meant with Michael and Ken that they were perfect to perform our wedding ceremony. We were laughing and sharing our life stories within a matter or minutes. They made us feel like we had known them forever and a day! Michael and Ken helped us plan our ceremony which was filled with religion, humor and inspiring readings that were perfect for today’s world. Michael and Ken could not have been more accommodating to our needs. We had planned to get married on July 15th; however, Dave woke up at 3AM that morning with a kidney stone. After spending four hours in the emergency room, we had a huge decision to make. Do we or do we not get married at 4PM? We had no idea what to do, so I reached out to Michael and Ken for some advice. They were wonderful and assured us that they would be there for us either at 4PM or whenever we were ready. We decided to postpone the ceremony until the next day. The next morning, Ken called me to see how Dave was feeling first... Read more

    “This couple was a pleasure to deal with. Having the ability to joke and have a sense of humor helps a lot in event planning esp. so in these challenging times. Yes, we do cater to and remember the small things, which we blend into our custom-designed ceremonies we create for each couple, "it's what we are known for"! We are very happy that everything turned out well and we thank this couple for their hospitality extended to us. The ceremony was inviting and engaging to all family and guests alike who attended the ceremony and they all were glad that they were there. May this couple have many happy and healthy years together in the future to take care of each other.” Thank you again. Regards, Revs. Ken and Michael

  • In March 2020, my fiancé and I had to postpone our Grand Cayman wedding three days beforehand due to COVID-19. We set a new date in June, but we were notified in May that we would need to delay again. Wanting to keep our date, we cancelled our destination plans and started arranging a backyard wedding in our hometown. We only had a few weeks, so our first search was for an officiant, which is how we came across the Men in Black. Their reviews were outstanding, and from the videos we watched of them, we could see why. We decided to reach out – and we are so happy we did. From the very start, they were engaging and focused on making sure our ceremony was EXACTLY how we intended. We did not have long before the wedding, but they took what little time we did have to understand our vision and then provided us with options to choose from and/or personalize. They also sent us several useful ceremony tips and resources to help guide us along the way. We could go on about how grea... Read more

    Greetings Christina and John, Thank you for your very kind words. We are so appreciative. There is an expression . . . "When God closes the front door, He opens, all the windows!" That is what we have dealt with Couples during this Pandemic, in having their wedding plans dashed and wedding ceremony rescheduled and yet rescheduled once again. We have opened the windows for them to see a wonderful alternative in having their wedding be special. We have a passion for officiating at wedding ceremonies. We have been doing this now (about 2200 weddings over the years) in us giving 120% in every wedding. It's really in our blood so to speak. We custom design every ceremony around the Couple. We do not use a "shelf canned ceremony" where 1 shoe fits all. This bride said it correct, couples choose us, they write great reviews of us and refer us to others . . . because of our many many years of experience and us acknowledging it’s the couples BIG day, not our day. In the ceremony, we are inviting and engaging with the Couple, family members, relatives and guests to enter and be present in the ceremony with the Couple . . versus just being a bored spectator "hoping the reception starts soon". The event of a Marriage provides us all with Hope & Joy as love becomes the wondrous journey for 2 people to join together on, not just as Husband & Wife, but also as each other's confidant and true best friend. We insert humor in the right places during the ceremony and we also stand in Awe of the Sacred commitments occurring and being made in the exchange of Vows and Rings. So we are most grateful for the great review we have gotten from this Couple and we wish them God Speed on their new journey as Husband & Wife. Thank you. Regards, Revs. Carroll and Warne

  • After being forced to postpone our wedding twice, my fiancée and I decided we were tired of waiting and wanted to do go simple. We just wanted it to be us 2 and an officiant. We were fortunate enough to find Michael and Ken, who were truly a blessing. They not only worked with us on short notice but proved to be a huge help while we scrambled to get things organized last minute. On the day of our wedding they were in communication with me throughout the morning, even calling me with a reminder to bring the marriage certificate. Even though it was not the big wedding that we had originally planned for, the ceremony was everything we could have asked for and more. Ken helped us by taking pictures, and Michael gave a fantastic sermon that was so perfectly fitting you would have thought he had known us for years. They were nice enough to stay with us for a few hours to take pictures afterwards. Honestly, it is difficult to put into words how thankful and blessed we are that things worke... Read more

    We were happy and glad to assist this couple in planning for their wedding day on the beach in being their Officiants to Marry them. In addition to the usual and customary challenges that an indoor wedding creates, beach weddings have their own set of additional challenges for a couple, such as onlookers and beach-goer, the many outdoor noises, the waves sound in crashing on the beach, and don't forget, the circling Sea Gulls. However, we guided this couple through these obstacles and provided them with a most memorable custom-designed wedding ceremony just for them. The combining of the Sacred with humor, is an inviting and engaging approach. We are appreciative of all the positive comments we heard from them. We wish this couple many happy and healthy years ahead. We even got yells of good wishes and claps of approval from those watching and on the Ocean City, Maryland Boardwalk as well. Thank you Amanda and Danny. You are a beautiful and sweet couple.

  • We came across The Men In Black when we decided to change our original wedding plans due to COVID. Planning a wedding during COVID was stressful and The Men in Black were our light in this dark time. They made our day absolutely perfect given the difficult circumstances. The Men in Black were very understanding, informative, and supportive. They provided us with a wealth of information and really listened to our wants and needs. With COVID we had decided to get married in our parent's living room with no more than 10 people and the Men In Black made great suggestions with the room layout to make our ceremony more intimate and comfortable for our guests. The ceremony was exactly what we hoped for and we would highly recommend them to our family and friends. Rev. Ken and Msgr. Michael, we cannot thank you enough for helping us create such a special day and we look forward to our vow renewals with you both in the years to come!

    Thank you Clare and Shawn for your kind and generous comments. What a cute and wonderful couple to officiate their wedding ceremony for. The ceremony went beautifully and the setting was superb. We wish this couple a lifetime of happiness.

  • A week before our wedding on the beach my fiancé (at the time) and I were faced with the possibility of bad weather. We were so upset because of all of the planning and decorations and the dream we had of our wedding was crumbling around us. We couldn't find a venue that wasn't already booked or that was close to a location that included food and hotels for our family. We spoke to The Men in Black Wedding Officiants and they immediately got to work looking for a venue and preparing our ceremony. It was unbelievable! Within 24hours they had found 2 venue locations. One of them we actually fell in love with and got it for a phenomenal deal. Ken didn't waste anytime coordinating, he called and spoke with the manager and setup a meeting for us to see the location and meet the owner. They even rearranged their schedule to accommodate the meeting so we could sit down and go over everything with us to get a game plan since we had less than a week to get everything together. The Men in Black ... Read more

    Lauren and Brandon, It was a great pleasure to work with you both. You both had great communications and responsiveness with us. Yes, we had some challenges . . . to even have a wedding occur at all. We do what we do best, and that is to take the ordinary and make it the extraordinary . . . and we did make that happen for you beyond your wildest expectations. We appreciate your very kind words of respect and appreciation for our efforts to help make this possible within 24+ hours. We look forward to celebrating with the Renewing of your wedding vows. We wish you only happiness and love. All the best, Men In Black Wedding Officiants

  • Ken and Michael helped us prepare an intimate ceremony that we personalized with their suggestions along with special readings. They know wedding ceremony pitfalls and challenges better than any wedding planner. The hints they provided made our ceremony by the water perfect. They joined our reception like family, and all had a blast. Our friends are still talking about Ken and Michael. If you want a special ceremony, these two are the right ones. Thanks Michael and Ken!

    This couple was a joy to officiate for! They, their families, and their guests were more than hospitable to us. They all made us feel very welcome at their reception. The couple chose a beautiful dock on a beach setting within the community they live in as the site of their wedding ceremony, and it was spectacular. The words we custom designed together with the couple for the ceremony made a strong impression on their family and guests, as many of them complimented us on officiating the ceremony and said to us, it was the best ceremony they EVER attended. We wish this couple years of happiness and joy and we hope they and their guests stay in touch with us as well. Thank you. Men In Black Wedding Officiants https://www.meninblackofficiants.com/

  • I would highly recommend MIBWO to anyone getting married! They provided us with so much useful information that really helped make our wedding ceremony just the way we wanted. You don't realize how much goes into the ceremony! But Kenneth really helped break it down and was very willing to help us make things go just the way we wanted. Bishop Carroll was fantastic during the ceremony and kept it gracious with a bit of humor which everyone loved. Thank you both so much for helping make our day so special!

    We both enjoyed officiating at this couples wedding ceremony. They were open to suggestions and discussion which then planned out the ceremony to be custom designed for them. The event went well and was memorable by all the planned out detail needed in making this ceremony specifically unique for this couple. We wish them health and happiness for years to come. Thank you from Men In Black Wedding Officiants

  • Highly recommend Men in Black. We could not have been more pleased with the way our Vow Renewal turned out. Greatly appreciated the effort that MIB took to get to know us and work with us to tailor the ceremony so that it was unique and something everyone could connect with instead of just a standard service. Everyone enjoyed the light touches that were woven in making our beach ceremony memorable. Our guests keep complimenting us on having Reverend Msgr. Michael and Deacon Ken officiate. They helped make our 30th wedding anniversary truly a special occasion. Have no doubt about hiring Men in Black for your event. Geri and David June 23, 2019

  • We were a little unsure about how to go about wanting a religious ceremony outside near the beach. When we heard about Men In Black we thought it would be too good to be true. However, upon meeting Rev. Mike and Ken we knew we had the perfect duo. They're comforted us and put the tiny details into the ceremony that we would have never thought about, they're true professionals when it comes to wedding. We enjoyed the ceremony and recommend them to any friends who ask!

  • We cannot express how thankful we are for Michael and Ken. They were warm and welcoming right from the start, taking the time to explain their process to us over breakfast. They were funny and friendly and kept us informed. They were so accommodating to what we envisioned for our ceremony, and provided us with multiple examples and options of how we could piece it all together to make it perfect for us. Ken was so patient with me as a stressed out Bride and didn't seem offended when I kept jumping the gun. We are again so thankful for their service - our ceremony was perfect and so "us". 10/10 would definitely recommend.

    This couple became very active and engaged with us in the creation of their wedding ceremony script language. The beauty, sentiments, spirituality and humor contained in the ceremony was greatly appreciated by the many family members and guests who then approached us, and told us it was the best wedding ceremony they ever attended. There was a great bond between all these people and it showed in their affection and friendship they all showed to each other. We were honored to be the officiants for this couple's wedding ceremony. And to add further here, we look forward to seeing this couple yet again and very soon in the near future. This is due to several of their family and guests asking us for our contact information, to officiate at their wedding ceremonies as well! We wish this couple health and happiness all their days ahead as husband and wife. May God bless them and keep them. Thank you. Men In Black Wedding Officiants https://www.meninblackofficiants.com/

  • The Men in Black are phenomenal and were phenomenal on our big day. They made my wife and I's wedding everything we hoped it would be. They listen (to your requests, preferences), advise (what to anticipate, hear your back story and acknowledge your heritage), and manage in a compassionate manner. My wife and I's wedding meant everything in the world to us and they made sure to genuinely accommodate. Not only will they offer assistance but they will continue to reach out to you throughout the wedding process as friendly reminders. I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat and still can not thank them enough. It took me weeks to approach a review because words alone can't capture what they bring to the table. I had the honor to be a guest at a wedding they officiated and now have the honor to say they officiated my wife and I's.

    responded with the following comments.

    Working with this couple was such a delight! They were very fun, relaxed and so open to listening to our ideas and suggestions for them to consider to use in their ceremony. They had excitement for the ceremony planning which then could be celebrated in the ceremony itself and then continued with great joy afterward at their beautiful reception. All the details were handled by expert vendors who all worked very hard with us to have everything flow together, during the ceremony and afterward at the reception. Their kind words of us that they wrote in their reviews of us performing the ceremony are appreciated, and those reviews are an endorsement of our work and care we place in every ceremony for each couple. We are so glad they were very happy with the Officiant services that we provided for them and their guests and we wish them many healthy loving years together as husband and wife. Thank you again, Rev(s). Ken and Michael

    Maria and Corey, Thank you for writing such a nice review about us, we appreciate your words very much. We try to give 110% in our custom design work for a couple so their wedding ceremony is unique. We never use a canned wedding ceremony speech when officiating, thus it takes us time a lot of time and effort to prepare a custom ceremony script. We also appreciated that a number of your guests approached us and told us how much they enjoyed us as wedding officiants and loved the ceremony we were the Celebrants for. Both of you paid attention to our suggestions, and your ideas were a great addition to the ceremony script development as well. We wish you both many many happy years together as Husband and Wife and hope you stay in touch with us from time to time. All the best to you. Kind regards, Ken & Michael of Men In Black Wedding Officiants

  • The Men in Black officiants, Ken and Michael made our wedding incredible. Two very genuine, caring and hardworking people that will go above and beyond for you. They make themselves available to assist you with your planning, make helpful suggestions and offer to assist in things that are outside their normal duties. One of my more favorite things about the service they provided, is they did not solely read from a script the entire time. Ken and Michael gave a tremendous speech about my husband and I to our guests that filled both of our hearts with so much joy. They are genuine people who love their careers and it shows in all that they do for the Bride and Groom.

    This couple was fun to work with because they listened and they were very open to our ideas and suggestions that we provided to them so they could to consider using these ideas for their ceremony to then have the ceremony be structured according to their overall wishes. They also gave us their input and the entire event was a smash. Their many guests came up to us, over and over at the Cocktail Party, to inform us how much they really enjoyed the wedding ceremony that we Officiated at for the couple. We wish this couple happiness, good health, and a long life together.
