  • Perfect if you are looking for a personal, spiritual ceremony and don't want to jump through all the hopes with traditional religious ceremonies. Most couples have to do counseling classes, or fill out surveys and questionnaires or have to meet strict requirements from their clergy in order for them to get married. I just didn't have time for this and I felt like I grew up in my church but they weren't very accommodating when I wanted to get married there. Plus if your partner isn't a member of your church, it seemed to be a problem. Mike worked with both of us, no questions asked and offered suggestions and gave us recommendations based on our backgrounds. My husband did not go to church and really had no religious background and Mike was very accepting and accommodating. He offered us sample ceremonies and sent us examples of readings to do during the ceremony, since we both had no idea what direction to go in. There were options from all religions, works of literature, and se... Read more

  • What an outstanding job! Michael was excellent. He was calming, organized, professional and extremely helpful through out the entire process. We enjoyed his company so much we asked him to stay for the dinner! All our guests loved him as well. Great job!

  • Michael does this because he loves seeing couples in love. It was clear to us that he genuinely cared about our beliefs and wishes. Not once did he attempted to sway our opinion. In fact, he had many great lay outs and options for us to start with. We then were able to completely structure the rest of the ceremony. At the rehearsal, Michael really took charge and made sure I was happy. When the big day came, he spoke beautifully. Our day wedding would not have been the same without him.

  • I don't know where to begin. My wife and I planned and financed our wedding. To go from not having a clue on how to do things and to end up having an almost perfect wedding was all because of Mike. He had everything laid out for the ceremony. All we had to do was choose which way we wanted it. And I'm sure if we had our own specific way, he would've catered to us. I say almost perfect because we started a half hour late and I apologized to Mike and he responded "it's ok, I'm going to greet the guest to let the know." He was so patient, flexible, and professional. It would not have went as well as it did if it weren't for him. Thank you for everything.

  • Michael has been doing this for ages so knows all the ins and outs. He guided us through the process but gave us the opportunity to personalize it just how we wanted. He knows his stuff!

  • We were extremely happy with Michael officiating our wedding! We were impressed by how warm and genuine he is. He wants the ceremony to be unique to each couple, whether that be religious, not traditional, etc. He provided us with a structure of how his ceremonies typically go, and allowed us to fill in our own personal touches along the way. He is very knowledgeable and gave us some great suggestions. We received plenty of compliments about our ceremony. We were thrilled with Michael and so were our families. Thanks, Michael!

  • Michael Barrett impressed us from the moment we met him. He was thoughtful, kind, genuine, and so witty. He was always cognizant of our wishes and was attentive to our emails and phone calls. He even met with us a month before the wedding to iron everything out. The ceremony was perfect. He was serious in all the right places, funny at all the right times, and remained classy the entire length of the ceremony. Hiring him was the easiest decision we had to make as we planned our wedding. We would recommend him to any family or friend getting married in the future. We love you Michael, thank you for all that you did to make our wedding so amazing!

  • I would highly recommended Michael to anyone out there looking for an officiant to marry them. Michael was awesome, he made myself and husband feel so comfortable, and he always assured us whatever we want he could make work, and he certainly did. During our wedding and after I had multiple family and friends ask me who he was because he did such a great job. Michael has a soothing way about him that will make you feel stress free. I am so happy with him and I found him on this website!

  • We were so incredibly pleased with Michael. He is the best! He gave us really good suggestions on things to include in the ceremony, we listened, and the end result was a very personal, meaningful ceremony. Everyone at the reception kept talking about how great the ceremony was. Our ceremony was interfaith Jewish and Christian and Michael handled that beautifully. We are truly grateful to Michael and the wonderful job he did at the wedding!

  • Michael Barrett officiated our August 16th wedding and it was amazing. He was so patient during our initial meeting, he was very easy to talk to and very accommodating. He helped us through the entire process and helped write our ceremony which turned out beautifully. I received many compliments on how beautiful and meaningful it was even though is was also short and sweet! He made any changes we suggested and helped with any aspect we were unsure of. He coordinated the rehearsal and the entire wedding party felt much more at ease after his directions. The ceremony went smoothly and was just perfect. I would definitely recommend Michael Barrett to future brides!

  • Mike was amazing to work with. We met up with him almost a year before our wedding. We explained to him that my husband was not religious at all and that I am a Christian. He was able to create a ceremony that was beautiful and not offensive to either of us. He offered us readings and poems that would work for us. Mike also assisted with our wedding program and mailed off our marriage certificate to the courthouse. He was so friendly and easy to work with. I highly recommend him.

  • My husband and I really enjoyed working with Michael Barrett for our wedding on 10/4/15. He is such a great person to get to know and he took the time to sit down with us to learn what we wanted for our ceremony. He was sensitive to our different religions and was able to provide a beautiful ceremony and meaningful readings that had everyone in tears of joy. I will cherish our ceremony forever. I would definitely recommend Michael Barrett: professional, personable, and easy to work with!

  • Mike was wonderful to work with! He helped us to design a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted. He was always happy to speak with us on the phone or meet in person. My dad was hoping we'd get married in a Catholic church so we were a little worried about how he'd feel about our outdoor ceremony. Mike made him feel totally at ease, they became buddies and even went to church together on Sunday morning!
