Matt was absolutely amazing to work with!! He made it easy with all of his helpful tools and advise! Everyone in the family just loved him and some asked if we knew him because our ceremony was so personal! It was as if we had been friends for years! He was very quick to respond with any questions we had as well as helping us get it together the day of! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect ceremony? I highly recommend Matt to everyone I know as well as anyone reading this review! Don't settle for second best get the best in Matt! Thank you again Matt it was perfect!

I found 1st Officiant while searching for officiants on wedding wire. After reading all of Matt Nathanson's amazing reviews, I knew he was going to be the first person I contacted. Upon meeting Matt for the first time, there was no doubt in my mind that he was going to be our officiant. His warm and personable personality instantly made us feel comfortable like we had known him for years. I had a gut feeling that I knew he was going to make our day perfect - and he did! On the day of our wedding, I was very nervous that I was going to be emotional and not be able to repeat after Matt. We met with Matt about thirty minutes before the wedding ceremony and it was then that he assured me that everything would be fine. Immediately after, I felt like I had a sense of calm come over me. Our wedding ceremony was absolutely perfect because of Matt. He did an excellent job and the ceremony that he put together for us exceeded our expectations. Our wedding guests talked about the ceremony the entire night and everyone wanted to know where we found Matt. We had so many guests (more than we were able to keep track of!) tell us that it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever been to. We still have guests talking about the ceremony and Matt. We are so grateful and blessed that Matt was part of our day. We can't thank him enough for making our ceremony and day so special. Kristin & David

I am not one to leave a perfect score on reviews usually but there was no doubt in my mind to give Matt a perfect 5 out of 5. From the first email with Matt to our actual wedding ceremony he was beyond amazing to work with.

He truly wanted to get to know Robbie and I as a couple and as individual people so he could build the perfect ceremony for us. A lot of our guests thought he was a friend of ours since he told stories from our relationship! Matt even helped us create our own vows which was important for us. I cannot recommend Matt more to anyone looking for an officiant.

Matt and the ceremony he performed were perfect for us. The ceremony was very personal, touching, and fun. From the beginning of the process he was professional, personable and flexible. Days after the ceremony, I was still hearing from family and friends how it was so awesome. Years from now, guests may not remember the dinner, the cake, the bar, or even the venue, but they will certainly remember that our wedding had one of the most personal and meaningful ceremonies ever. Thank you Matt.

Matt was so amazing to work with! The fact that he met with my husband and I and basically "interviewed" us was a huge deal to me. I really wanted to find an officiant who would make our ceremony personal and not a snooze fest! He kept it light and funny and kept our guests interested the whole time! Everyone commented on how they've never seen such a "cool" ceremony before! He really did a good job at working with us to make our ceremony special.

My husband and I got married in October 2014. We absolutely LOVED having Matt officiate our wedding. It was important to us to have the ceremony be as non-religious as possible and he made that very easy. He gave us readings and different ways the ceremony could go and things to do. We chose a few of his and our own and he compiled it all beautifully and made it amazing! He also asked us to write memories of each other which he included in the ceremony to share with our friends and family to make it more personal. I could not be more happy with how the ceremony turned out, it was romantic, sincere, and fun/funny (which was very important to us)! I would definitely recommend Matt to anyone!

Matt Nathanson was our officiant at our wedding back on June 8th, 2014 and he did an amazing job! We had so many guests come up to us after our wedding asking how we knew Matt and what an amazing job he did. They were all very surprised to find out that we found him online. He had made our ceremony so wonderful and added so many personal touches to it that all of our guests thought he was just one of mine and my wife's long time friends. He helped us out every step of the way throughout the whole process of figuring out what we wanted said in the ceremony, to the rehearsal, to the wedding itself. He gave us examples of readings to choose from and let us customize them to our liking. He was very professional, very classy and very prompt. I can't say enough good things about Matt and the job he does. He is just a wonderful officiant all around. I HIGHLY recommend Matt Nathanson to anyone! His web site is www.firstofficiant.com. You won't be disappointed! :)

When I was searching for an officiant, I read a lot of reviews because I really wanted a personalized ceremony. I am so happy that I found Matt! He took the time to get to know us as a couple so he could incorporate stories and make our ceremony special for us. Matt was great about offering his suggestions, but was also to open to all of our ideas. The ceremony was so personal and touching, we had guests thinking that Matt was a close friend of ours, even though we only met him the day of the wedding! Even our photographers loved him because he managed to sneak out of the first kiss shot. My husband and I laughed, and wiped away tears and truly had a better ceremony than we ever could have imagined. We continually find ourselves going back and watching the video of the ceremony. If you are looking for an officiant, contact Matt Nathanson now...you won't regret it!

We can’t thank Matt enough for making our ceremony absolutely perfect. He did an amazing job! The ceremony was so personal and heartfelt, and we loved hearing it for the first time on our special day. It brought many laughs & tears. The best thing is you get a copy of the ceremony to keep and we’re looking forward to reading it again on our 1 year anniversary. Our guests believed we had known him for years on how he spoke about us.

Our ceremony will definitely hold a special place in our hearts. He truly is great at what he does and we are so happy he was able to marry us.
