  • We had seen Reverend Whalen at several of our friends weddings prior to our own, and we knew he was exactly who we wanted. Reverend Whalen did an absolutely amazing job during our ceremony. Our guests commented several times at how well spoken Reverend Whalen was, as well as how thoughtful his words were. On top of what a pleasure it was to work with him, he is extremely responsive during the planning process and offers help/advice whenever needed. We have re watched our wedding video countless times, and the ceremony is still our favorite part.

  • Reverend Michael helped us make our wedding exactly what we wanted. This was done with little time left until the wedding due to a change of plans on our end. We are so thankful for his services!!

  • Reverend Whalen was the best! He was so knowledgeable and walked us through everything. We had no idea what to do and every-time I emailed him a question, he answered very quickly. He walked us through the marriage license and also arrived to the venue early to make sure we had everything. He also sent me a reminder a few days before to remind me of the little things I needed. Reverend Whalen was very well spoken, warm hearted, and humorous. He was the perfect combination. We highly recommend him. Most weddings have very boring ceremonies but not with Revered Whalen. I cant express enough how great of an experience we had.

  • Reverend Mike was perfect!! He was recommended to us by one of our vendors and he popped to us as we searched online for our reverend. He met with my now husband and I and created something that perfectly explained our story and engagement. He gave us suggested readings, unity ceremonies and different religious perspectives since we are not of the same faith. Rev. Mike was professional from the beginning when we met with him to the end- even during our ceremony when our venue’s microphone broke. He even made everything perfect, including making our marriage license process as easy as possible and explained everything to us. We highly recommend Rev. Mike Whalen!

  • We were SO lucky to find Michael!!! He was exactly what my husband and I were looking for in an officiant. The entire experience from start to finish was an absolute pleasure. He was attentive, friendly, understanding of our wants, and relieved so much stress from our minds!! Our ceremony was perfect with Michael. He wrote out an EXTREMELY thoughtful (and accurate) perspective of our love story, and not only did he have all of our guests tearing up, but he had us all laughing as well!!! You will not be disappointed if you choose Michael to marry you on your special day. Trust me!

  • We found Michael by searching reviews on this site and I'm so glad we ended up with him. He came up with a personalized and beautiful ceremony that brought many tears. Michael was so sweet when we met him on Skype the first time and made us feel comfortable. So glad we chose him! I mean he did Mike the Situation's wedding, you can't go wrong with Mike;)

  • Rev. Michael Whalen blew our guests away with a touching, personal, and heartfelt ceremony. He worked with us to come up with a custom, personalized ceremony script that helped bring out our personalities as a couple and individually. All of our friends and family thought that he knew us personally because of how great the ceremony was. I can't thank him enough for helping my husband and I tie the knot. He is definitely the best in the business and I would recommend him to anyone looking for an AMAZING officiant!

  • Some brides plan 2 years in advanced, some 2 months. Reverend Michael is ideal for either case, mine being the latter. He accommodated our low-key style on the river at the Salt Creek Grille and kept the communication open, with a personal first meeting and updates when needed. He is very respectful to what makes you feel special and expressed whatever I wanted edited or changed with the ceremony wording he would have no problem with. And he didn’t, as I wanted to highlight my deceased grandmother’s meaning in our relationship, rather than focusing on all details of our proposal. He dresses professional, projects his voice very clear and confident, and has a fantastic smiling presence that family and friends complimented on. Thank you so much- I didn’t even have to think about if he’d be there on time or in right place— I walked down the aisle and felt so great as everything was in place!

    Tyvm for your kind words Cheryl. You and Marco showed us all how much love you shared together and for your families. Ty for allowing me to be a part of your day !

  • We were incredibly pleased with selecting Rev. Michael Whalen as our officiant this past September. He was so kind, well-spoken, and professional throughout the entire process. He took time to get to know us via video call and truly cared about our story. He puts a lot of thought into the ceremony and was very receptive to any suggestions we had. He also provided detailed instructions of how to register for our marriage license which was very helpful! We received many compliments from our guests about how unique and beautiful our ceremony was. He made the ceremony the highlight of our day. We highly recommend Rev. Michael for anyone in need of an officiant for their wedding!

  • We loved Rev Michael from the first time we met with him in person. We really wanted to meet and connect with someone in person rather than on the phone or video chat. Michael met with us free of charge and really got to know us. He cares about your personal story and he makes the ceremony special. We also did not want someone who was cracking jokes or trying to be funny and Michael respected that. The ceremony he provided was exactly what we went over with him and it was perfect. We are so glad we found him! We also had guests speaking about how much they loved our ceremony and Rev Michael! Thank you!
