We had a beautiful wedding at Publick House and even though there was a little hiccup with the mic he never missed a beat. Mike was professional, kept everything moving and kept us laughing and happy. Our three children were part of the sand ceremony, Mike was great with them. Thank you so much for making our day the best it could be!

Michael Backer was great! Very professional, helpful and made the entire planning process so much easier! He even did an impromptu vow renewal for a couple who stopped by the chapel...it was their 25th anniversary getting married at the same chapel. He gives personal touches that make the ceremony your own and provided great feedback, along with being able to laugh along with us. :) Highly recommend his services and we thank him so much for making our day special!

Mike was amazing! We couldn't have asked for a better Justice of the Peace. My husband and i didn't know what we wanted for a ceremony and he helped us to put it together. Mike is very knowledgeable and makes you feel at ease. He was wonderful to work with and I would recommend him 100%.

We were very happy that we chose Mike Backer as our JP for our wedding at the Publick House Historic Inn. Mike offered many options for our wedding ceremony and helped us craft a ceremony that fit our tastes and preferences. He ran a very smooth and thorough rehearsal and the ceremony itself went off without a hitch. We would highly recommend him as a wedding officiant.

Mike provided exactly what we were looking for. He brought a personality, professionalism and sense of humor that perfectly matched what we wanted. He gave us options when we told him what we were looking for and was willing to work with any changes we requested. Looking back on video from some of our friends, I laughed out loud at some things my stressed out bride missed in the moment. Thank you, Mike for being a part of our day!

Mike did such an amazing job at our wedding! His hard work really showed in the months leading up to the big day as well. As first-timers, we didn't know anything about creating a ceremony, but Mike's experience as a JP proved very helpful. He provided guidance with what to include, what to avoid, etc. And his binder full of selections gave us great ideas in terms of wording and order of events. He even helped us understand when to get the marriage license, what to look out for, etc. The guests loved him and we did too!
