We had Father Matthew officiate our wedding and could not have been more pleased with how our ceremony came out!! If I could heavily weigh the "Quality of Service", he would get a 10 out of 5 stars. Every one of our guests commented that our ceremony was the most beautiful and loving ceremony they have ever witnessed. I was recommended to Northeast Nuptials by my videographer (who is the best & and has 20+ years of experience) and I trusted my videographer's praise for Father Matthew's ceremonies! He accommated our request for a non-denominational ceremony for my husband, but also blessed our marriage by the Catholic Church for me. Our varying views allowed us to both have a special ceremony we could cherish and Father Matthew helped make that a reality in an entertaining and boisterous way. He speaks loudly and clearly, even over the ocean in the background and yet, the main focus of his ceremony is never on him but on the bride and groom. He has an organized manner to help plan your ceremony from start to finish, with many options to accommodate your preferences and style. If you can just trust that your ceremony will be beautiful, you can look past the fact that sometimes he was not timely returning emails to us and often needed to be re-contacted to get a response. While this created stress during the wedding planning, ultimately his ceremony delivery absolutely made up for it! I am recommending him to close family and friends.

Father Matthew officiated our ceremony. We live 3000 miles away from New Hampshire and he was great about setting up phone calls, Skype sessions, and emails. We used his premium services and he was great about helping us create a ceremony that represented us. I really appreciated his flexibility.

The one thing... he gave us "homework" of questions about our relationships hardships, memorable moments, origins, and brief summaries on what we loved most about each other. I was really hoping that he would have included more of that in his homily of our ceremony. Also, he got one of our readings wrong.... we only noticed because out of the selections we wanted included in our readings that was the one that we agreed we hated the most! (We laugh about it, none of the selections are terrible it was just particularly cheesy... our guests loved it.)

I would recommend confirming your ceremony selections with him either at the rehearsal or beforehand so everything you want is 100% there and you aren't thrown off by anything.

My husband and I were married by Father Matthew several weeks ago. Many of the guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was, and what a great job the he did conducting it. I thought he did a wonderful job as well. My husband is not religious, however I wanted a blessing over our marriage. Father Matthew did a wonderful job giving us options to create the perfect ceremony and vows for our special day. I gave 3.5 stars for responsiveness only because I had to email him a few times to get a response to a question very close to the wedding, and I was already stressed out as it was. Overall: FANTASTIC!

We worked with Rev. Matthew Michaud. He met with us previous to our wedding and provided us with a binder full of different suggestions for each part of the ceremony, which was wonderful since we weren't EXACTLY sure what kind of ceremony we wanted. Rev. Matt was extremely approachable and my husband and I instantly knew we wanted him to officiate our wedding. Prior to the wedding we were required to give back the binder with our choices, along with a homework assignment. This homework assignment was a free style writing assignment about ourselves as individuals and as a couple. He then incorporate what we wrote into his eulogy.

Rev. Matt did a wonderful job officiating our wedding. He made it personal. He also provided some laughs throughout the ceremony, which was important to me as I am not an extremely serious person. He also did a WONDERFUL job at projecting his voice so that all of our guests were able to hear the entire ceremony. We received MANY compliments from our guests about how wonderful our Rev. was and how he made the ceremony both meaningful and lighthearted at the same time. We were extremely pleased with our experiences with Rev. Matt and would definitely recommend him!

My daughter and her husband met Reverend Joe Leary several months before their wedding and they immediately knew that he was going to be perfect as their officiant. He took the time to really get to know them personally and when it was time for the wedding ceremony, it seemed as though he had known them for a long time. The wedding ceremony was beautiful; even today many of my friends are commenting that the ceremony was truly wonderful! I would definitely recommend working with Reverend Joe if you are planning a wedding in the Portsmouth area.

We had Fr. Matthew of Northeast Nuptials as our officiant and he was hands down our favorite vendor to work with! His unique services were exactly what we dreamed of - he is a truly passionate officiant, who took the time to get to know us and encouraged us to fully customize our ceremony. The result was the most meaningful 30 minutes of our lives and something we will always remember. He did a beautiful job and we received many compliments on how touching it was. He was great to work with and we would highly recommend him.

Father Matthew was above and beyond what we expected! He was very professional and make us feel very comfortable! He made our ceremony fun and kept the attention of our guests!
First off, he is one of the few priests who will marry outside the church. Secondly, we got to pick how our ceremony went! We got to choose every word that was said which I thought was amazing!
I can't say enough good things about Father Matthew!
Our wedding was beautiful however everyone complimented on our ceremony! Our guest said how much they enjoyed him and he made it fun! I thought I was going to be very emotional however, he lighted the mood and was actually making us laugh which was what I needed! Thank you Father Matthew for making our wedding that much more special!! Highly recommended!!!!!!

Fr. Matt was great. The ceremony was so personal because you get to choose almost every part of it. He has great presence and personality and really brought our ceremony to life. At the end of the ceremony, I already had a friend inquiring about his services! It wouldn't have been the same without him!

Father Matt at Northeast Nuptials did an absolutely amazing job helping us plan, coordinate, and have our wedding ceremony! Father Matt was sensitive to the fact that my husband and I come from different faiths, and we were able to create our ceremony to fit our needs. Father Matt was very professional and fun to work with. The day of our wedding, it was very hot outside, but Father Matt made the ceremony fun, meaningful, and unique to us as a couple. We received many compliments on what a great ceremony we had, and we owe it to Father Matt for helping us along the way and create a comfortable and light atmosphere.

Northeast Nuptials made our dream ceremony a reality. My husband and I were both raised catholics, though we have somewhat strayed from the religion. When we discussed our wedding ceremony, we still knew we wanted it to somehow be religious-based but since my husband is divorced with two children, having a church wedding wasn't really in the picture. We also really wanted to have our ceremony in the same location as our reception. Enter Northeast Nuptials. From our first meeting they made our wishes a reality. Our officiant, Deacon Joe, asked a number of questions about us, our lives apart, our life together, and helped us to create the perfect ceremony for us, tailoring his message to be completely about us as a couple. I would not hesitate to use Northeast Nuptials again! Whether religious or not, they do it all and the people we met with were the nicest we encountered in looking for an officiant! We couldn't have asked for more!!

Father Matthew was awesome from the start! He came down from New Hampshire just to meet with us, spent a lot of time talking to us to see what we wanted in an officiant, provided us with a great guideline for our ceremony, and wrote a beautiful homily just for us! He even wore a kilt to match our Scottish theme! I would recommend him and Northeast Nuptials for a flawless experience!

We worked with Matthew from Northeast Nuptials after reviewing many different officiants. What we liked most about Northeast Nuptials was that we were able to cater the ceremony to our liking, down to the very last words. It was very helpful to follow a guideline but also have the flexibility to choose our own elements and vows.

Our special day could not have been more perfect all thanks to Reverend Matthew. Northeast nuptials really has the process of wedding ceremonies down to a science. When this process started my husband and I had no idea what we wanted for a ceremony other than we didn't want it in a church. Matt showed up with a binder which was basically like wedding ceremonies for dummies and it all fell into place so effortlessly. This company comes highly recommended and very professional so if your looking for an officiant then look no further northeast nuptials is where it's at!!!

We chose Father Matthew from Northeast Nuptials as our officiant for our July 2011 wedding. He did an amazing job and numerous guests at our wedding commented to us on what a wonderful ceremony we had. In fact, several said it was hands down the best marriage ceremony they had ever seen and commented specifically about how genuine and engaging Father Matthew was. From the start, it was clear that he really loves what he does and cares about creating the most perfect ceremony for each individual couple. We would highly recommend Northeast Nuptials and specifically Father Matthew for any type of ceremony - he is definitely the best out there!

Matthew was absolutely wonderful to work with! I loved that we could personalize our ceremony and make it completely our own. He easily adjusted his personal style to fit our ceremony as well. Matthew was able to balance perfectly professionalism and fun...he is serious about his work, but when he saw that we joking and smiling during parts of the ceremony, he smiled and laughed along with us, cracking a few jokes and easing the nervousness. But I have no doubt that this was catered for us. He was the absolute perfect choice for my husband and I, we wanted someone that would help us make our special day one of a kind (much like we are) and from working with us on our personalized script, meeting with us when it was convenient for us (we planned our wedding across country!) and keeping us smiling the day of...I could not have asked for anyone else to perform our wedding ceremony.

I would not hesitate to recommend Matthew as an officiant to any of my friends or family getting married. He is a pleasure to work with. He is extremely flexible. He wanted our day to be special to us, just as much as we did...in the world of "cookie-cutter" weddings, this is something truly extra-ordinary. Thanks Matty!!!!! John and I had the best time!!!

We were lucky enough to have Matthew perform our wedding. From the very beginning, I knew we had chosen wisely! His expertise guided us through the process easily and ensured that we had a ceremony that genuinely reflected who we are as a couple.

On the day itself, he took charge of the event and made sure everyone knew their part. I can't tell you how grateful I was to be in capable hands on a day when my mind was in 1000 places!

He also did an excellent job performing the ceremony. He really set the tone for a light-hearted and festive occasion, which is exactly what we asked him to do for us. After the ceremony (and for many months to come) my husband and I received many positive comments about Matthew's performance. I think it's rare that so many friends and family remembered and enjoyed the ceremony.

I strongly recommend Northeast Nuptials whether or not you already know exactly what you want. If you do know what you want, Matthew is easy to work with and willing to accommodate you. If you don't know exactly what you want (I had no idea!) his expertise and creativity will guide you effortlessly through the ceremony design process.
