I loved Tom! He really made our ceremony better! He almost forgot to have us read our vows to each other, but I loved that! It made our ceremony memorable and more personal! Very happy with him! Is it weird that I say his I like his voice, because that is important right? :)

I really liked Rev. Marx's ceremony, unfortunately during the vows he asked me if "I take this woman" referring to my husband!....pretty big goof up that everyone was able to laugh off at the time, but still something that should not have happened. He met with us for a rehearsal the day of the wedding, which we had to pay for, and then he had to go do another wedding, so he could only stay for 20 minutes. He did a good job of informing everyone where they would stand and how they should walk down the aisle, etc. He is clearly very experienced in performing weddings on Mackinac Island. I wasn't overly thrilled with him as my officiant, but at the end of the day he got the job done.

Tom is a summer bird that heads South to Florida for the winter, but if you can catch him in the summer on Mackinac Island, then you MUST have him as your officiant. Tom is very down to earth and a great person to work with.

There aren't many officiants on Mackinac Island and all I found were Christian ministers. Reverend Marx was available for our wedding on very short notice (three weeks) and was very responsive in sending us the vows to approve and in making changes on such short notice. He agreed to do a non-religious wedding ceremony in which we wrote our own vows. He also agreed to strike the one mention of "god" from his sermon and to present my husband and I as "Mr. John Doe and Ms. Jane Smith" as I chose to retain my own name and prefer to be addressed as Ms. and not Mrs.

Reverend Marx showed up promptly (he lived across the street from our venue) and performed as expected. I was disappointed, however, that he still read the line that included "god" in it and then presented my husband and I as "Mr. John Doe and Mrs. Jane Smith." He apologized profusely and said that he had noted it down, but forgot since he does this ceremony so often. It was disappointing, but not unforgivable -- I was so excited I hardly even noticed his gaffe. Although his sermon was nice, I later found that it is widely distributed on the internet and that he didn't write it. All in all, he got paid $200 for 15 minutes worth of work while reading a sermon that was written by someone else. Not bad.
