  • 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.

  • 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!!

  • Words cannot express how honored we were to have Michael officiate our wedding! Finding the right officiant is like finding the right venue or the right flowers. You’ll know when you’ve found the perfect fit. Michael’s kind nature and generous spirit were so apparent when we first met him. Throughout the process, we felt like we were talking to a trusted friend. And, that friend did everything that he could to make sure that our ceremony was one that we would remember fondly for the rest of our days. When you look back on your wedding day, you will remember a lot of things. You will remember the weather. You will remember the music. You will remember how your husband looked at you as you walked down the aisle. And, if you’re lucky, you’ll remember that Michael Lance Barrett was officiating.

    Dear Kara: I am speechless and so grateful to have met you! You and Maurice were a delight. You both inspired me. Much Peace & Love!

  • Michael made our wedding ours. Half of our wedding party spoke french and the other half english. He was able to blend both languages into the perfect ceremony and made all the guest feel comfortable. Michael blended well with our families and it was like having an old friend at the wedding. I highly recommend him!

    Oh Jackie! By the end of your wedding day, I did feel almost like family. My best to you and Pascal.

  • Our experience with Mike was an amazing one from start to finish. He made us feel so comfortable from our first meeting and was very helpful in the process of determining the most important aspects of our ceremony. Every interaction with Mike was proof how much he truly enjoys what he does and how much he is willing to make your day the most special one possible. Hands down a wonderful decision going with him to officiate our wedding!

    Thanks Marilyn. This review made my day. My best to you and Nick for getting me off to a fine start in 2019!

  • It was a great experience to have Michael Lance Barrett as my wedding officiant. My husband and I met with him months in advance to get a feel for him and he is so welcoming and kind. He gave us samples of wedding ceremonies to help us choose what would be best for our big day. He got along well with the guests of the wedding and we were glad he stuck around for the reception as well!
