  • When my husband and I started talking about getting married, we immediately knew we wanted a specific kind of ceremony. We were looking for someone to tell our story, in a personal and intimate way, and to unite us and encourage us on the next chapter of our lives. Luckily, Mike is one of my best friends cousins, and when I told her what we were looking for, she suggested him! I cannot tell you how lucky we are that Mike was introduced to us. The minute we talked, we could tell he knew exactly what we wanted. The process was a breeze and Mike could not have been more accommodating, kind, or professional. After the ceremony, we heard nothing but amazing responses. And they were all saying exactly what we wanted to hear - that our ceremony, was personal, intimate and unique. That they have never heard a ceremony like that and it was just lovely. Some family members even asked for the written version! Mike, we cannot thank you enough for performing our ceremony and creating a memory... Read more

  • I can not say enough about how happy we are with our ceremony and whole experience with Rev Michael. From the time we first met, we were so pleased with how professional, accommodating, and knowledgable he was. our ceremony was so personal and really spoke to who Ian and I are. So many people came up to us after the ceremony and told us how beautiful and perfect it was. I would definitely recommend Rev Michael to my family and friends. I wouldn't change a thing and I am so grateful we found him.

  • From the first conversation we had with Reverend Michael, we knew he was definitely who we wanted to officiate our wedding ceremony. He took the time to meet with us and really learn our story and who we were. From just one meeting, Reverend Michael really told our story and many wedding guests couldn't believe he wasn't a close family friend! His professionalism, friendliness and attention to detail was outstanding! Our ceremony was memorable and exactly what we had envisioned for our wedding day! Reverend Michael really cared about our ceremony and did everything he could to help us along the way! We couldn't have chosen a better officiant for our wedding day!

  • Reverend Michael was fabulous! He really took the time to get to know us and learn about how we met and how we fell in love. He took those elements and tied them into the ceremony which made it extremely personable and intimate. He’s so friendly and compassionate and was a joy to work with. We couldn’t have been happier with our ceremony and will remember it forever.

  • We established early on with our families that we would not be having the typical interfaith ceremony consisting of a rabbi and a priest talking about the bible and trying to weave us into their 'standard' ceremony. Our vision was to be unified in our ceremony and have a ceremony that was actually relevant to who we are as individuals and as a unit while still tying in elements from both religions. So that's where Michael came in, who is also himself part of a successful interfaith marriage, he truly understood where we were coming from. Michael was professional, friendly and a complete pleasure to work with from the very first call we made to him all the way through to the wedding day. We had several calls and in person meetings so we were able to get to know one another and he was able to craft 'our story' as a couple to help develop the ceremony. When the big day came Michael was completely well spoken, heart felt and funny to boot. I have never heard of really anyone commenting o... Read more

  • Reverend Michael was great to work throughout the entire process of developing our ceremony. Michael met us in person and took the time to ask thoughtful questions and really get to know us/our personalities and the story of our relationship. From the meeting he was able to write a beautiful and custom ceremony that incorporated special touches as we had requested (a moment of remembrance, a handfasting ceremony, etc.). He also was able to suggest nice readings. Michael was pleasant to work with as he provided thoughtful advice along the way but allowed us to ultimately make all decisions. On wedding day Reverend Michael did a great job delivering the ceremony. We got many comments on how nice it was and how well it captured us as a couple and individually. We are very happy with his services and would recommend him to others!

  • We had such a wonderful experience with Reverand Michael. I was the first of my family to get married outside of the Catholic Church, so I knew I had to plan the ceremony carefully. I wanted to have a very personal ceremony that spoke to who we are as a couple, but still make my family and friends feel as though the ceremony was legit. After a few very fun meetings over drinks with Reverand Michael, he put together the most perfect ceremony. We received so many compliments on how beautiful it was - everyone from my most religious older relatives to our young, crazy friends! If we had to do it all over again, we wouldn't have changed a thing. I would recommend Reverand Michael to anyone.

  • Reverend Michael Rowinski officiated at our daughter's wedding, and he did an excellent job. He was very professional, and, after spending several hours meeting and talking with her and her future husband, he put together a very personal and touching ceremony for them. Unlike the traditional standard vows, Reverend Michael included anecdotes about their journey together, their love and commitment to each other, and their hopes for the future. Several guests commented that the ceremony was one of the nicest they had seen. We would highly recommend him as an officiant.

  • My husband and I used Reverend Micheal for our wedding, and are so happy we did. We had many great vendors for our wedding, but the one who went above and beyond all expectations was our officiant, Reverend Michael. Many friends I'd spoken to about their own weddings said that either they never met their officiant before their wedding day, or it was basically a reguritated ceremony redone on many other occasions. Michael met with us a couple times for several hours each time before the wedding, and had a genuine interest in our story. He then went back and wrote the ceremony for us which was absolutely beyond words perfect. I couldn't believe how, in just a couple of hours together, he could put down in words everything we wanted to say, and make our ceremony unique and special to us. I really don't think too many officiants put this much work and heart into a ceremony that lasts 15 -30 minutes. In return, we had so many of our guests say it was the most beautiful ceremony the...

  • Where do I even start. Reverend Michael is fantastic. He is extremely accommodating, extremely professional, and above all, he is also an incredible person. When first looking for a wedding officiant, my wife and I must have had phone screenings with at least 12 highly-rated officiants in the NJ/NY area. Reverend Michael was by-far the best. Within seconds, he asked what kind of ceremony we wanted, he wanted to know 'our story', and he gave us a full breakdown of how (based on the ceremony we wanted) our ceremony would play out. No one else did this. Typically, other officiants explained to us how they did their ceremony (without asking what we wanted) and how they send 20 pages for us to fill out so they can get to "know us better". None of this was necessary with Reverend Michael. Further, Reverend Michael was highly accommodating to our geographic location (we live in CA, with a NJ wedding). Since meeting in person prior to the wedding was not an option, Reverend Michael w... Read more

  • Having Reverend Michael Rowinski as our wedding officiant could not have worked out any better. From the time I emailed him to see if he was available for our wedding day to the moment the ceremony was completed could not have gone any smoother. It was a pleasure working with Reverend Michael, he listened to everything my husband and I asked of him and made the ceremony unforgettable, for everyone!!! He told such a beautiful story of us during the ceremony while making everything so easy to listen to for our guests. If I had it to do all over again, I would not change a thing about the ceremony, or the wedding day AT ALL!!!!!! Thanks again Reverend Michael

  • When we saw Michael marry our friends a year ago we knew he was the one we wanted to marry us. He was awesome very professional and personable. I would not have chosen anyone else and he made our day very special. Very glad he was there to make us husband and wife :)

  • Reverend Michael Rowinski was our Officiant for our wedding on June 3, 2011. We live in San Diego so as you can imagine you have to find ways to plan a wedding from 3000 miles away. Michael really made that easy for us which is amazing since there are so many other things to worry about. We talked and skyped and met in person only one time and he managed to create a ceremony as if he had known us for many years. We truly appreciated that aspect because it was extremely genuine and elegant. We totally recommend Michael's services to anyone who is looking for an awesome officiant!

  • Words can not express how wonderful Rev. Rowinski is. He was so kind. He created such a beautiful and amazing ceremony for us. He created something that was personal and from the heart. I would recommend him for anyone who wants something from the heart and that will mean something to you both.
