We highly recommend Matt as a wedding officiant!! He conducted the most beautiful and personalized ceremony for my husband & I!! The entire experience was incredible... I will forever remember it as the happiest day of my life. Most memorable was the amount of personalized detail that Matt included throughout our ceremony. He handled everything with such grace and professionalism... even down to a last minute impromptu ring exchange that I had requested with our parents. Matt truly went above and beyond for us: agreeing to travel/coordinate his lodging at our destination wedding in Sedona, he emailed us the ceremony audio file the following day as well as keepsake printed version in the mail - just WOW! Our families were absolutely in awe of Matt and the beautiful ceremony he provided... he had a very powerful effect on all of us. Matt is an incredibly detail-oriented and passionate individual - the amount of time, effort and love he puts into his ceremonies shows! I couldn't have imagined a more perfect wedding, thanks to Matt!

Matt was recommended to us by our wedding planner and we are so thrilled that we choose him to officiate our wedding. Matt did an amazing job and really made the ceremony beautiful, personal and intimate, but still really fun! I have been to numerous weddings with boring ceremonies and we really wanted an officiant who would make our ceremony unique and fun! Matt delivered and was by far the best vendor we booked for our wedding!! We laughed and cried throughout the ceremony along with our guests and everyone at the wedding told me the ceremony was their favorite part of the wedding. It was just so personalized and raw. We can't thank Matt enough for the wonderful job he did with our ceremony. He truly captured our relationship in the most beautiful way possible.

While speaking publicly is a key skill required from an officiant, Matt's unique ability to truly listen during the private moments in preparation of our marriage is what set him apart from other options. He masterfully blended our personal preferences, as well as valuable additions from his own heart, into a perfect ceremony. The process from our first email exchange through to the completion of our ceremony was seamless--always positive and surprisingly without stress. We truly can't imagine a more professional officiant. Thank you, Matt!

The officiant is such a big part of the wedding, so we wanted to find just the right one. In our case, it was just as important as the food and the cake. We did not want a traditional or stale ceremony and finding Matt was not a coincidence. He provided everything that we wanted and made our special day unforgettable. He made the guests feel very welcome and included them in the importance of our of relationship. He was also very personable and thorough with details. They say the greatest love story ever told is your own and he told our story perfectly. I even cried after hearing the ceremony for a second time on audio, it doesn't get any better than that.

Matt is simply an OUTSTANDING Wedding Officiant. Our wedding, one week ago today, was perfect. Matt was so involved with us from the first day we spoke, wanting to understand our story, what my wife and I love about each other, and the special moments between us that we share. Matt wove all of that into an amazing ceremony, punctuated with the most wonderful sentiment that made for an absolutely unforgettable service.

Without exception, every guest at our wedding gushed at how great he was and how amazing it was to hear our story. Matt has an amazing story himself, and is someone anyone would be blessed to have as a friend.

Anyone getting married in the Phoenix area needs to have Matt as their officiant. Matt is not only the First Officiant, he's the Only Officiant!!!! You will not regret working with him!

I hope we can work with him again when we renew our vows!

Matt was hands down the most amazing vendor we booked for our wedding. He set the entire day up to be full of love and laughter and was everything we hoped for and more in an officiant. He is a very kind and caring man, and it is obvious he actually cares about his clients. He took the time to get to know my fiance and I, which was reflected in the ceremony. Many of our guests commented on how amazing he was, and thought that we knew him personally. I would recommend Matt a thousand times over to anyone who is getting married and wants a memorable ceremony.

Matt was absolutely phenomenal !!! Not only did he connect with my Husband and I on a personal level, but he seemed to just click with us. He was funny and captivating and I had multiple Wedding Guests approach us after the Ceremony to tell us how incredible it was. The beautiful thing about the way Matt does his Weddings, is that he has your involvement 100%. Nothing comes as a surprise.. and he doesn't drag things out.. it was the perfect length of time and extremely personal to us as a couple. I had a few guests tell me that they got to learn a little bit more about each of us through the Ceremony. I wouldn't have had ANYONE else perform our Ceremony. He is absolutely fantastic !!!!

Matt was outstanding! From the moment we met, my husband and I both knew we wanted him as our officiate. He is so personal and really cared about getting to know us. He took our love story and turned it into such a beautiful ceremony. After the wedding, we had so many of our guests say how awesome Matt did. "It was not one of those ceremonies where you start to fall asleep", one of our guests told us. It was truly a pleasure and I cannot thank him enough for helping make our day so special!

We were referred to Matt by our wedding coordinator. He had officiated her wedding as well. We can not say enough wonderful things about Matt!!!!! He is incredibly kind, really takes time to get to know you and your future spouse, and he makes the whole process very easy and will tailor it to you and what you are looking for. All of our guests commented on how much they loved the ceremony and what Matt said. In my experience, the ceremony is not usually something that is usually commented on. My husband and I would absolutely recommend Matt to anyone looking for an officiant. If you choose Matt, you can be assured that you are getting the BEST officiant in Arizona.
