Pastor Mike Mitschke is appreciated for his elegant voice, pleasant personality, complete respect for individuality, wonderful reputation and professional dependability.

Pastor Mike was awesome! He had tons of options for us to pick and chose from to create our perfect ceremony as well as accommodating anything custom we wanted to add. He was easily available for questions and said we could change anything right up to the wedding. He was so easy to work with and very personable and actually added a sense of calming to our wedding jitters! I would recommend Pastor Mike to anyone getting married!

We found Pastor Mike through our wedding planner, Hannah Smith Events. He has a pretty good reputation on Yelp as well! He is a very nice and personable man, and we were honored to have him as our officiant!

I didn't know what to expect when contacting officiants, but Pastor Mike made everything so easy for us! He emailed us a "build your own ceremony" packet, and I easily designed exactly what we wanted for our wedding day! I felt empowered to keep traditions I like and add our own twist, instead of feeling tied to a certain program sequence. Before the wedding, I typed out our ceremony and emailed it to him. I do recommend consulting with him in person, as meeting and chatting with him really sealed the deal. We were excited about our wedding day!

We knew we wanted to include filipino traditions (unity candle, cord, veil, and coins) and Pastor Mike was familiar with all of it. On the day of our wedding, the ceremony was seamless and he did a superb job! You could really tell he was at ease and has lots of experience, and there were no unwanted surprises.

Pricing was great, communication easy, and our wedding ceremony was fabulous! He sent in our marriage license to the county and we didn't need to do anything!

We highly recommend Pastor Mike to all couples looking for an officiant!

Pastor Mike Mitschke is exactly what we were hoping for in an officiant -- genuine, wise, kind, reliable. He is flexible with meeting arrangements as well as ceremony structure. My favorite interaction was when we first met Pastor Mike. When we were brainstorming ideas for ceremony structure, he began reciting marital-passage options by heart. My (to be) husband and I were holding hands and started to tear up because Pastor Mike had such a sincere delivery. It is obvious that Pastor Mike truly enjoys his work. He has a strong voice and is a sweet man. You will be lucky to have him for your wedding.

Pastor Mike was so wonderful! He truly cares about the couples that he works with. He went the extra mile for us by helping us obtain our marriage license, so we wouldn't have to stress about going to the administration building ourselves. He was very personable and he took the time to get to know my husband and I when we met to go over our vows. He helped make our wedding day so special! Thank you Pastor Mike!

Pastor Mike is amazing! He made our ceremony very beautiful. We love his voice! His voice sounds like a professional movie stars voice & even made our wedding video stand out. We're so happy with the service he provided. He was able to take care of our marriage license since we don't live in San Diego. When we got to the venue he had everything ready for us. We're so glad we hired Pastor Mike. Thank you so much for making our day so perfect & beautiful!

Pastor Mike is your wedding officiant if you want someone who genuinely cares about your special wedding day. From the moment we got in touch with Pastor Mike he was easy going, caring, thoughtful, and professional. He met with us for 2 hours to discuss how we would like to have our ceremony and even drove us to some local beach spots to consider because we were undecided of the location. He provided us with examples of wedding ceremonies and helped us implement how to make our ceremony personal and special. The day of the our wedding, the ceremony started almost an hour later due to traffic, and Pastor Mike provided the calmness and serenity that we all needed. Our ceremony was conducted with love, thoughtfulness, and sincerity that Pastor Mike has been gifted to provide. We were blessed to have found Pastor Mike to be part of our special day and without hesitation we would recommend him to couples who are looking for that special person to be part of their wedding. Thank you Pastor Mike, we adore you!
