  • Michael came to us by chance. We had gotten the go-ahead from our venue that we would still be able to have our micro wedding about a month prior so we had to find an ordainer quick. He worked with our venue previously and came to us that way. Michael worked quickly to put together an incredibly personal and intimate wedding ceremony that we felt had our special touches and welcomed our guests' involvement. He is dedicated to make sure your vision comes to life. We were in crunch time and he got us our ceremony outline to us within 48 hours of meeting. We met over Zoom twice in the three weeks leading up to our wedding to hash out the details and Michael incorporated everything we desired including vows in a different language. Michael was a wonderful surprise and addition to our wedding. We adored having him and our guests adored him as well. Thank you, Michael!

    I got to officiate for a great couple and received help with my Spanish at the same time. I am blessed! The personal declarations that you both shared were inspiring!

  • We can't thank Michael enough for the wonderful job he did on our intimate mini-wedding! We hired Michael before COVID for our large wedding ceremony but due to the pandemic we had to scale back for 2020. Michael was with us every step of the way and helped us create a beautiful ceremony for our day. He provided many options and readings to help us create the ceremony we wanted. He was responsive to all of our questions and listened to what we wanted. Our day was perfect and Michael executed our ceremony perfectly and exceeded our expectations.

    Thanks so much Maria. Yes, this has been a difficult year but weddings like yours does so much to inspire me to stay positive. Many Blessings to you and Steven!

  • Michael was phenomenal! Like many others this year, we had to reimagine our wedding due to COVID. We ended up postponing our big celebration to next August but decided to still get married this year with our family and wedding party. We hired Michael just over a month before our wedding. He crafted a beautiful ceremony. He truly listened to what we envisioned for our ceremony and made it happen. Michael is wonderful to be around and makes you feel like you’ve known him for years. We could not have been happier with our choice to have him marry us. Thank you again Michael!

  • Mike was the officiant for our wedding. Mike was warm and personable and went out of his way to make our day very special. Mike even put some special touches in our ceremony like the blessing of the rings and the guest consent for us (the couple). Although we did not know Mike prior to our wedding, it felt like he was part of our extended family. I highly recommend Mike to officiate any wedding. He will surely make it special.

    Thank you so much Kathi. And thanks to our friend Larry for making it all happen! I always say that there really are no coincidences. Officiating your wedding was a joy from start to finish!

  • Mike officiated our wedding two weeks ago and we could not be happier with how everything went! We started planning with him for a large wedding months ago, and he was so helpful. He has tons of experience, so he had many different ceremony outlines and numerous readings, both religious and non-religious. He is as active in the planning process as you want him to be, and he is willing to give any prayers or sayings in any languages. He’s well-versed in many wedding rituals; he took the time during the ceremony to explain the reasonings behind our unity candle and glass-smashing. When we had to switch to a small backyard wedding, he made the transition as easy as possible. Everyone who attended the ceremony or watched the live-stream cannot stop raving about how great and well-done it was! He is always fun to speak with, and he’s just a great man in general. We cannot say enough about how happy we are with our ceremony and to have worked with him.

  • Mike helped us every step of the way. I had zero knowledge of the marriage process. We contacted him and it was so easy and convenient. Mike is passionate about weddings and loves what he does. Very easy going and efficient. I recommend his service to a broad range of weddings shall and large.

  • Mike was kind enough to officiate our mini ceremony last weekend. After postponing our original June 2020 wedding to 2021, my fiancé decided we still wanted to get married and hold an intimate ceremony at our new home. Mike did a beautiful job and has been a joy to work with. Easy-going, thoughtful, and an all-around great guy. We can’t wait for him to officiate our larger nuptials next June!

    I felt like we were on top of the world up on your roof-top deck. You and Barry are a terrific Couple. See you next JUNE 2021!

  • We feel so lucky to have found Michael! We first met with him in Baltimore and talked for over an hour about our relationship, his background and how he became a minister. We knew right away he was the perfect person to officiate our wedding. Michael is genuine, enthusiastic, and one of the kindest people we have ever met. Michael provided us with plenty of material to help create the ceremony we were looking for and he did an excellent job performing the ceremony on our wedding day. We had to change our original wedding date due to COVID, he was flexible and understanding about rescheduling. He was easy to communicate with throughout the process, organized, showed up everywhere on time - truly didn’t miss a beat! He took care of submitting our marriage license after the wedding which was so helpful. Our friends and family kept coming up to us throughout the weekend saying what a wonderful job Michael did and how much they enjoyed meeting him (of course we agree!). We would rec... Read more

  • We hired Minister Barrett about a month before our wedding, due to a mishap with the original minister. By the time, we met him down the aisle, I felt as though I had known him for years. Minister Barrett was absolutely AMAZING! He was very professional and personable. He was ready to give advice and listen to exactly what we wanted and needed without being pushy or judgmental. I would certainly recommend him to my friends and family for future nuptials!

    Thank you for such kind words! You and Tim deserve the best! Many Blessings to you and your families! Mike

  • We absolutely loved working with Mr. Barrett! From the very beginning, he was very responsive and you could immediately tell he has a great passion for his work! He was readily available to answer any questions and had numerous ceremonies to choose from and customize to suit our personal style and beliefs. He performed our ceremony beautifully and kept it short and sweet, just how we wanted! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding!

    Heather, thank you. Perfect Day, Perfect Couple and some amazing little Boys make for one fine memory!

  • It was a pleasure to have Mike officiate our wedding October 5, 2019. We felt love, peace and kindness from Mike with his presence alone even before he spoke. Our guests told us they didn't feel like "guests" but rather a special part of the wedding ceremony because Mike involved them in our vows. Mike was also more than willing to come to our venue rehersal and helped lead the session. I highly recommend Mike for your wedding, he really loves what he does. Thank you Mike, the ceremony was beautiful, better than what I dreamed of all these years!!
