  • Mitch was absolutely the best from the day we spoke on FaceTime during COVID, through all my questions and getting to know each other to our perfect wedding day! He went above and beyond expectations. People are still talking about how amazing, funny, and yet still mushy he was. He just had the perfect touch on everything. He was like an ice breaker, that made you laugh and feel comfortable (as it can get nerve wrecking up there at the altar with everyone staring at you!). He came to the rehearsal as well for a tiny fee that was absolutely worth it! I am so happy that we chose to be hitched by Mitch!

  • Mitch facilitated a perfect ceremony for us that was personal, romantic, and authentic. He incorporated what he learned about us from our preliminary meetings into the ceremony, and did so in a way that was seamless and meaningful. We could not have asked from a better experience!

  • Mitch the Minister was amazing! He really helped us out during the planning phase and was super responsive whenever we had questions. He arrived to the venue early and coordinated with us quickly. Before the ceremony, he put us both at ease before we got started. My wife and I wrote our own vows and he held onto to them for us before the ceremony so we wouldn't have to worry about them. During the ceremony, he made us as well as all of our guests laugh and made sure everyone had a good time. It was a very touching ceremony and he did a great job. We would both recommend Mitch for anyone's ceremony!

  • Mitch has our guests laughing and crying from the time our ceremony began to the end! People were saying how fun and dynamic he was. He made it personal, interesting, and heartwarming. Our guests kept complimenting him and said it was a special touch he added to enhance our love story! Thanks Mitch for your professionalism and making it a phenomenal day for us!

  • Mitch sat with us first to understand what was important to us. He walked us through all the details and then the ceremony was perfect. Everyone was talking about how great his ceremony was long after the wedding. We had an incredible night. Adam and Paula

  • Hiring Mitch was one of the best decisions we made for our ceremony! He was always available to answer our questions before the wedding and spoke on the phone with us a few times to go over all of the details of the ceremony. He was very accommodating with all of our ideas.. We had our wedding on Oct. 25, 2019 in Spring Lake NJ. Mitch ran through a rehearsal with us the day before and even joined us for dinner where he learned a lot about us and our families and friends and used that to personalize our ceremony even more. He made us all laugh and cry during our ceremony and knew the exact time to crack a joke to stop the tears. We had numerous people come up to us during the wedding to comment on the amazing job the Mitch did during the ceremony. We 100% recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing ceremony!

  • During our first meeting with Mitch, he actually made me cry because I was laughing so hard. I knew from that moment that he would be officiating our wedding. He is so funny and so down to earth that I can't think of a single reason of why someone would choose anyone else over him. During our ceremony, I started choking up and crying and he helped me get through it by making me laugh. He really knows how to read the crowd. It's rare to go to a wedding ceremony that you end up laughing and crying. Our guests were all cracking up because it is after all..a celebration! And he made sure everyone knew that. I can't recommend him enough. You can not go wrong with Mitch.

  • We cannot thank Mitch enough for easing our nerves up at the alter on our wedding day. From the beginning, we really enjoyed Mitch's sense of humor and devotion to his craft. My wife and I liked that he was sincere and funny at the same time, which he portrayed in our ceremony. Our guests were pleasantly suprised with how much fun the ceremony was. Even the band commented that Mitch was the best officiant they had ever seen!

  • You know all the reviews written about Mitch being funny and personable? Well they’re all true! Mitch was HILARIOUS. Everyone loved him, we were laughing throughout our entire ceremony. It wasn’t awkward or boring. . I cannot say enough good things about him. We had two meetings with him because he really wanted to get to know us before he married us. Our first meeting was at a diner and we literally talked for hours. He showed up on time, mingled with guests and was just overall perfect for our ceremony. Def recommend. See the picture attached? He stopped the wedding to make sure our photographers got this picture because he knew how much it meant to us. It was hilarious and a moment to remember forever!

  • My husband and I just got married on September 21, 2019. Mitch was amazing throughout the whole wedding planning process for my husband and I! Mitch was so light-hearted and funny with our ceremony, we could not have imaged it being performed by anyone other than him. My family is still talking about how funny he was and how amazing he was during the ceremony. When I contacted Mitch about what could we could do for my grandma since she was put on hospice and would no longer be able to attend the ceremony, Mitch with no issues offered to do a small intimate ceremony at my house for my grandmother. Words genuinely can not describe how great of a man Mitch is. We love Mitch, and we know you will too! THANK YOU AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING MITCH!

  • "How long have you known Mitch for?" "He's a friend of the family to know you guys that well, right?" These were all common questions we were asked after Mitch the Minister performed our marriage ceremony on 9.21.19. No, Mitch is not a longtime family friend or relative. We only met with him in a New Jersey diner once about a year and a half before our wedding. All of that goes to show how incredible he really and truly is. MItch's easy going demeanor can put anyone instantly at ease, lending to a relaxed atmosphere on what can be a very hectic day. The ceremony itself was perfect. His poignant and heartfelt words brought people to tears, which were then dried as he easily interacted with my groom, myself, our bridal party, and the audience to make everyone laugh. I could not have imagined anyone else performing our ceremony. Mitch the Minister is truly one of a kind in the best possible way, and we cannot thank him enough for giving us a wedding ceremony we will never, ever forget... Read more

  • Mitch ( the Minister ) performed the marriage ceremony for our daughter Jaclyn and her now, husband yesterday in NJ. He was so joyful and performed a wonderful, touching, and lovingly humorous ceremony. Everyone commented to my husband and I how much they enjoyed him! He met with the couple just once but they were so impressed with him that they hired him that day. They are a fun couple, full of life, and his ceremony matched their personalities perfectly. He has a unique way of knowing how to bring joy, laughter, and heartfelt sincerity into his words. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who realizes that love is joyful and should be celebrated! Helped to make the day even more perfect!!!! Thank you, Mitch!!!! God bless you!

  • From the first time that my husband and I met Mitch, we knew he was going to be perfect to officiate our wedding. Mitch is so good at what he does there was absolutely no question in my mind that he needed me to micro manage anything! He talked with my husband and I about what we see for our ceremony and how we’d like it to go, and then gave us a preview of what he would say. We loved it! My husband was almost moved to tears at our FIRST meeting! By the time our wedding day came Mitch was even more than we could have hoped for! He was equally funny and moving, which exactly what we wanted ! We didn’t want to have the regular boring ceremony that puts people to sleep, and he definitely delivered! All of our guests coming up to me after the ceremony saying that was the best ceremony they’ve been to, and asking how I found him! (Little do they know all I did was read these awesome reviews here and then setup a meeting to see for myself!) If you’re considering meeting with M... Read more

  • My husband and I are so grateful to Mitch. He totally set the tone for a celebration we will never forget. He created a meaningful, joyful ceremony that was enjoyed by all our guests. We absolutely loved the moment during the ceremony when he told us to “take a moment and look around” because it allowed us to really connect with all our loved ones who were part of our wedding day. It was a once-in-a-lifetime moment. We enjoyed Mitch so much during the ceremony, we invited him to stay for the reception. Thank you Mitch!

    I rarely stay for receptions but I am SO glad I did. You are so blessed with some great friends and loving family. The food was amazing! From start to finish! And, BONUS, I got to dance with the bride! Congratulations Natalie and Patrick. I wish you ALL the best in your future together - Mitch

  • Once the virus hit, we had to reschedule our original wedding date of May 23rd to August 23rd, which we were able to book Mitch for. Close to the original wedding date, we decided to keep the date and have a virtual civil ceremony. It was then allowed to have virtual ceremonies and Mitch was able to accommodate for. After the civil ceremony and as the second date approached, we realized that it was not going to be possible to have the wedding without wearing masks and with an ever dwindling guest list. We sent an email to Mitch informing him of the new wedding date and received no response for a month. During the month of no response we reached out to our first scheduled officiant and he was available for the new date. We followed up with Mitch and he referred us to one of his friends as he could not make our new date and mentioned that he would gladly send our deposit to him. We then asked Mitch for our deposit back instead and he quickly responded saying it was non-refundable. Very d... Read more

    It's so hard to make a couple happy who change their date MULTIPLE times. I made multiple attempts to find them alternative ministers I work with. I did marry them (virtually) on May 23. ALL of my couple know how responsive I am. They then moved their big wedding to the date of my daughter's wedding!!! My contract (like most vendors) clearly says that my retainer is non-refundable. I wish Felipe and Susanna many years of joy and happiness.
