  • 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 did an excellent job for us from start to finish. He captured the essence of “our story” perfectly. He wrote a warm, heartfelt and wonderful service that sounded as if he had known us for years. Our guests remarked how impressed they were with his service. We would very highly recommend Reverend Michael to officiate your wedding!

  • The Reverend is calm, funny and cool! He was so flexible with the layout of the ceremony and worked with us in really designing a custom ceremony that reflected us as a couple. When we were up there, it was very calming to have Rev. Whalen there with us. He can speak somewhat quietly though, so if you have older folks at your wedding, give him a microphone. Highly recommend working with him!

  • Rev. Michael Whalen wrote a beautiful ceremony for my husband and I. Everyone enjoyed the way he spoke and how easy he made everything. If we could do it all over again I’d rebook with him!

  • Rev. Michael Whalen was excellent!! From the moment we met him, we knew he would give us the most beautiful wedding ceremony. After our first meeting to obtain some personal details about my husband and I as a couple, he had a full draft of the wedding script that same night for me to look over! He was extremely fast, efficient, and took so much time and care into creating a beautiful ceremony. Being a 2020 Covid19 bride was rough but throughout all the craziness, date change, and last minute venue change, Rev. Michael Whalen did not miss a beat and accommodated everything we wanted and needed! He provided us a truly wonderful ceremony and I will recommend him to all future brides!! Thank you Michael!

  • Michael did an amazing job leading our wedding ceremony on July 2020. We hired him approximately a month before and he turned it around with no issues. The ceremony was so intimate and romantic just as we had hoped. Family and friends continue to compliment us on how great the ceremony turned out. They thought Michael knew us both for a long time! We highly recommend Michael. You will not be disappointed!

  • 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!
