Mike was WONDERFUL! I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to have been my JP. Mike was very professional he helped us with everything we asked he answered all our questions and went beyond his duties as a JP. Not only was he professional but he was sociable to our guests and family members and respectful to everybody. We had a miss-hap with some guest getting lost and had to put the ceremony on the hold and he was so patient and it helped the situation so much to know he wasn't worried about having to wait, he was so great! I will be recommending him to everyone who is looking for a JP, and would recommend to anyone looking to call Mike B and look no further! Thank-you so much Mike from Mr. &Mrs. Peloquin.

We can't thank Mike Backer enough for the most amazing ceremony he performed for our wedding at the Publick House. He created a custom ceremony that captured our personalities perfectly. Guests at our wedding have been asking where we met Mike. They thought he knew us our whole lives. Guests have said it was one of the best ceremonies they have seen. Mike guided us the whole way through with his experienced knowledge and made it easy for us. We hope to see you again for our 10 year.
Much thanks, Tim & Lacey Plumley

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!

Mike is just fantastic. He is genuine and he made our ceremony beautiful and classy, but he also has a great sense of humor that he managed to fit in. It started to rain on us during our ceremony and he made everyone relax and giggle about it, without really interrupting the proceedings. After the wedding multiple people came up to exclaim over how wonderful a job he did, and how the ceremony was the most unique and lovely thing they'd ever seen. We did a winebox ceremony and some very adorable readings - Mike had a ton of choices about what our ceremony could include, but he was also willing to work with us to allow us to include whatever under the sun we wanted, and we did throw in some original material. He also did a great job keeping us prepared for the technical/legal/paperwork side of things. His communication is super duper fast. Great guy, great ceremony, great professionalism. I'd book him again... but he married us so well the first time that I probably don't need to. :)

Mike is a wonderful person and JP! He officiated my daughter's wedding 2 years ago and we thought he was so wonderful that we asked him back to officiate ours!! A return performance, you might say! Mike is caring, considerate, he has a great sense of humor and is a wonderful guide in the process as well. We can't say enough good things about him! and being a couple with 7 adult children between us, I know we will call on his services again!

Mike provided a top-notch experience for us on our day, October 1st, at the Wayside Inn in Sudbury. Throughout the entire process, he was supportive and friendly. He took the time to explain each step and each decision to ensure we made our ceremony extra special and exactly what we wanted. My wife and I would like to thank him for making our special day as unique as possible and even putting up with learning a new ceremony for us!

If you're looking for a Justice of the Peace who will put his heart and soul into your ceremony the same way you do, I won't hesitate for a second to recommend Mike to any family or friend who asks.
