We found Mike from an on-line search and gleaned from the photos that he appeared to be flexible in his presentations and that his credentials pointed to his professionalism. We met with him and found him to be gracious and brought a depth of knowledge and ideas to what we may want included and excluded within the ceremony. We made some changes along the way that he took in stride. On our wedding day he was prompt and well prepared, and his delivery of the ceremony itself was relaxed, sincere, and sprinkled with humor to remind everyone that this was truly a fun and celebratory occasion. I encourage anyone, whether on their first or last marriage, whether looking for a professional who can guide that BIG wedding or who wishes a more intimate wedding among close friends, to strongly consider Mike as their officiant. He will help make your day - well YOUR day.

Mike was incredibly professional and organized. He had a binder that allowed us to pick out exactly the type of wedding we wanted - including a large selection of readings for us to choose from. He was the first one there the day of the rehearsal and early for the wedding ceremony. During the ceremony he was professional but lighthearted. He was great. He helped to make an absolutely wonderful day a perfect day. Thank you very much Mike. I have no intention of being married again so I will not require your services in the future but I will happily and enthusiastically recommend you to anyone I know that's getting married.

We are so pleased with our decision to hire Mike Backer to conduct our wedding ceremony. With Mike we were able to customize all components of our ceremony with ease, as he provided us with a large binder which included so many options for openings, remembrances, vows, readings, prayers, etc. We wrote our own vows but Mike framed them with beautiful words, which he clearly projected to the audience with passion and joy. He also proactively informed our photographer of his decision to step out of the frame of vision for our first kiss, and instructed myself and my husband to hold the kiss for X amount of time to ensure the photo is captured. He had the wedding party laughing at the rehearsal, and interacted with the audience the day of the wedding before the ceremony began which set a lovely tone. Our ceremony was beautiful and Mike was such a big part of it.

I am so happy we chose Mike Backer has our JP. First of all we planned our wedding in a very short amount of time (7 weeks) and he was very flexible and accommodating to that. The moment we met him we knew we made the right choice. During the rehearsal he was very thorough and made sure we all felt comfortable and answered questions anyone had. One reason we felt he was a great fit was his sense of humor! It definitely came into play to ease our nerves during the ceremony and got our audience laughing. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a JP who is very experienced, professional, and has a special gift to ease your nerves! Thank again for working with us Mike!

My husband and I cannot say enough great things about JP Mike. When we first got together to discuss our ceremony, we knew we had made a great decision. JP Mike is personable, punctual, reliable, and offered great insight in regards to constructing the ceremony we both envisioned. Since our wedding, so many people have approached us saying how great and funny our officiant was. I recommend JP Mike to any and everyone looking for a memorable and entertaining wedding ceremony!
