  • Mike was really great to work with! We met several time before the wedding and emailed back and forth over the months. He's very open and comes off as pleasant and inviting. He took the time to get to know my fiancé and I and gave me any and all ideas that I could take from to help me create my ceremony exactly as I wanted it. It couldn't have been a more perfect day and I would recommend Mike to anyone that asks. When he arrived at the wedding (early), he took the time to touch base with the guitarist, groomsmen, my dad and my bridesmaids and I to make sure everyone knew their parts. Perfect!

  • Mike married my husband & I going on five years ago this July. He was absolutley amazing and our ceremony still resonates in my mind. We were from two different cultural backgrounds and he was able to work both into the ceremony. Mike is amazing with words and helped us write vows that truly were for us and our "hands prayer" was my favorite part. I felt like he was a part of our family from our first meeting. He is an amazing person and it was truly a blessing to have him coordinate the most precious moment of our two lives joining to one. On top of it all he helped incorporate a very emotional and private loss into the ceremony just for us without taking any attention from our ceremony and no one noticed except us. It was a beautiful moment just for my husband and I and Mike.

  • It was a pleasure having Mike Barrett as officiant of my son's wedding. He truly worked to make the ceremony what the bride and groom wanted it to be, and was most flexible in accommodating religious,spiritual, and cultural preference in the ceremony. He is also readily available to provide assistance in reading selections, order of ceremony, certain rituals that may be desired (the unity candle) in the planning process. He worked to get to know my son and his bride as well as both families, BEFORE the ceremony, and he let that shine through during the ceremony.

  • Mike was GREAT! He was the first officiant we met with and upon other meetings we quickly realized he's the best there is. My husband and I are not religious, but my husband is traditional, so we wanted a ceremony that was as close to traditional as it could be, without the religious aspect. Mike delivered and some. He sent us drafts of ceremonies he had performed and allowed us to edit them (though we could have picked straight from what he sent us without having to do anything and he was fine with that). We completely rewrote everything and he was nothing but encouraging the whole time. We wanted a SHORT ceremony, so in lieu of a reader, we asked him to read a poem for us. He did so beautifully and with emotion. Mike, though religious, had no problem with our lack thereof, and treated us with respect even though we had different views on faith (which is how it should be, in my opinion). He genuinely has passion for what he does and it shows. I really can not say enough good things a... Read more

  • Michael Lance Barrett was a pleasure to work with. I couldn't have asked for a better officiant. From the moment we met him at a coffee shop, we knew that we wanted him to perform our wedding ceremony. Michael is very personable. He offered to meet with us a couple of times to discuss our ceremony. He always responded to emails in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend Michael Lance Barrett.

  • I can not say enough great things about Mike! Our ceremony was perfect and he was a huge part of that. Not only is Mike professional and knowledgeable, but he is also extremely flexible and was willing to work with us up till the last minute to make our ceremony exactly how we wanted. We were able to meet with Mike before we decided he would be our officiant, but we knew immediately after meeting him that we didn't want anyone else. He is so friendly and personable and definitely put us at ease. We were pretty much able to design our ceremony from scratch and he brought in a lot of great ideas to make it very memorable for my husband and me, as well as all our attendees. He was very responsive and never left us hanging with any questions that we had, and he helped us in getting our wedding license in line. Mike is someone that we will continue to keep in contact with as he was a huge part of our wedding day, and he really takes a lot of pride in that. I could not have imagined anyone e... Read more

  • I found Michael after I had already started working with another officiant. The service I was receiving from the other service was absolutely terrible! They couldn't even get our names right...on multiple occasions! Michael was the complete opposite! From the moment we started working with him, he made us feel comfortable and at home. We met with him in Baltimore one Saturday and had a lovely lunch to get to know each other. He really cares about the people he's sharing this amazing moment with. He wants to make sure he understands what you want. He was always open to suggestions and he even threw in little cultural touches we wanted to add to the ceremony. He is such a warm person and we were so lucky to find him! If you are looking for a tailored ceremony with warmth, love, and aspects that define you as a couple, go with Michael. He will take care of you!

  • Mike was very easy to work with and flexible in performing our ceremony however we wished. We met with him twice before the wedding to get his feedback on the secular wedding ceremony that we wrote. My only complaint is that I asked that I not be "given away" as a bride (it was specifically excluded from our ceremony text) and he included it anyway, but it was not a big deal and I was the only one who noticed. He also will not return your signed marriage license to the courthouse, unlike every other officiant we interviewed. Overall, we were happy with his services.
