  • Matthew was absolutely amazing! so flexiable in his schedule for the first initial meeting to introduce ourselves and get a feel for us as a couple, able to make our rehearsal without much notice and helped with kinks that I hadn’t thought about! On the actual day he was witty but professional during our ceremony and really made us comfortable. He is super responsive to email/text and would totally and 150% recommend Mathew to anyone who is looking for a great officiant for religious or non religious weddings! 5 stars for sure!

  • Matthew was wonderful as well as professional and made my son and wife's wedding special. It was a simple wedding on our deck with just family, but it was a beautiful day with special people. Thank you.

  • Matthew helped to make our wedding day so special. He is a true professional. From the very beginning, Matthew was very responsive and willing to meet to try to understand our vision for our wedding. He was quick to offer helpful suggestions to make our ceremony even better than we could have imagined. Matthew was very flexible when we decided to add a hand-fasting "tying-the-knot" as our unity ceremony. He is HIGHLY recommended and our day wouldn't have been the same with out him. Thank you Matthew!

  • Matthew officiated our small ceremony on Lummi Island back in April and was AMAZING! From the moment we met him to discuss options for the ceremony he made us feel at ease and offered suggestions for our small ceremony which included our children. He answered any questions we had very quickly and our ceremony couldn't have been more perfect! I couldn't imagine anyone else doing a better job! Thank you Matthew for helping make our day perfect!

  • Let's admit it the whole wedding process is nerve racking! I was so nervous and didn't know where to start, so I hired Matthew after reading his reviews here on Wedding Wire as a place to start. That was the best first decision I could of made with our wedding. With his total professionalism and thoughtful itinerary for how the ceremony would go we knew where to go from there. Matthew was always responsive when I had any questions, spoke with me on the phone, and even sat down to breakfast with us and his lovely wife and grand daughter! His wife also helps with ceremonies if need be! He made sure to show up early to our ceremony with his associate who performed our hand fastening. He tailored our ceremony exactly to how we wanted it to go so there where no man made surprises! However, even though I was having an outdoor wedding and it snowed almost 5 inches on my wedding day, he still showed up and him and his friend probably froze their butts off making sure we went over everything a...

  • There aren't words to truly express what it meant to have Matthew as our officiant. He crafted a ceremony that incorporated influences from culture, religion and personal beliefs beautifully into our personal love story. We felt like he found a way to perfectly share who we are as a couple with our families and friends. We highly recommend having Matthew as a wedding officiant. He has the perfect balance of grace and wit, with an incredible foundation of knowledge of different religions, faiths, and traditions. He referred us to a unique salt ceremony as the unity part of our ceremony, and helped us selected readings to ensure our ceremony was woven together perfectly. The ceremony is something we will always remember, and hold so dear to our heart! Thank you again, Matthew!

  • Matthew is truly the best officiant a couple could ever ask for. He has the warmest disposition, deep professionalism, and is extremely well-written. He put together a beautiful and personal elopement ceremony in a matter of 2.5 days and was a complete joy to have marry us. He was quick in all of his responses and more than happy to make time to marry us on short notice. He even sent out our marriage certification ASAP and certified! He really helped make our little special day all the more special. We're so grateful we found you, Matthew! Thank you!

  • We knew we had the right person for our special day when we first spoke with Matthew over the phone. His gentle and willing demeanor was both, welcoming and reassuring. From the beginning of planning our intimate and special wedding event to the end of it all we have had a delightful and positive experience. About half way through our planning process we decided to have a double wedding ceremony with our best friends. Matthew was instantly on board and recreated our ceremony to accommodate the service for a double wedding. During our day we had a bit of snag with the photographer, but Matthew and Donna were super helpful and patient, as we sorted out a few last minute details. Thank you for suggesting the unique and meaningful hand fasting ritual to us. We loved the idea! We also appreciated the time we had to share and tell stories throughout getting to know each other including our time during the ceremony! Both, Matthew and his dear wife Donna were such a treat to work with. We had... Read more
