Where do we begin with Pastor Mike Mitschke?! What an amazing Godly man. From the moment we step into his home to meet him for the very first time, he treated me and my fiancé (then) like we were family. He answered every question we had for him. He even gave us some examples of things to say in our ceremony. Which made it so convenient and easy for us. Pastor Mike, thank you so much for giving us your time and for marrying Arron and I. We couldn't have picked for a better Pastor to marry us. We are so blessed!

With love,
Arron and Janelda Bradford

I would pay double to use Pastor Mike. I was so scared picking someone online from Canada to marry us in the states but my gut feeling was he was going to be great. Oh was I right. He was professional yet had a warm heart and made everything so comfortable and easy. He was early on arrival and had all the paper work ready for us and the ceremony was exactly as planned. I believe we were his 3000ths wedding ceremony If you are looking for a fantastic gentle soul this is defineltly the person you are wanting to make your day extra special.

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.
