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!

Pastor Mike was main reason our wedding was a success at such a short times notice. He gave me a name of a wedding planner and gave us alot of information that was very helpful. The day of our wedding he had to put up with a little more because I was running late due to road construction and we were not real familiar with the directions but managed to get there about half hour later than the original time planned. We thank him very much and I know everybody enjoyed his services. We would highly recommend Pastor Mike.

AMAZING experience with Pastor Mike! If you are looking for an officiant, you don't need to look any further! We had a destination wedding to San Diego, we are from New York and we were referred to Pastor Mike. He was so accommodating with our need to see him at the last minute and he was so flexible! He sent us a document with ideas for our wedding vows, ceremony and locations. We had searched all over the internet for that and once he sent it? We used it as a guide and wrote our own vows. We worked with Amanda and her team at Creative Affairs. I've reviewed them too and they were incredible. Our experience was stress free, full of love and laughter with a Pastor that had experience, compassion, great ideas and lots of love! Pastor Mike stood with us on the edge of the Pacific Ocean as we were married. He never missed a beat-he was on time, prepared~he took any stress I might have felt that day and made it go away! Pastor Mike is the BEST and if you are looking, please consider meeting him. Your day will be what it should be-stress free, meaningful and officiated by a Pastor that has given his life to others. Thank you from the bottom of our heart Pastor Mike.

Pastor MIke was the missing puzzle piece to our wedding. We searched through a lot of different Officiants and I was recommended to him from my wedding coordinator. My husband and I knew from the first time meeting with him that he would be our officiant. Pastor Mike is so genuine and professional. He was very responsive to us and helped us with deciding different parts of the ceremony and has options to choose from so that it's easy and personalized. The day of I had no worries and he did an amazing job- guests loved our ceremony and we did too. Also, he does the marriage license for you! Not many officiants will do that- such peace of mind knowing that it was done and we didn't have to worry about it. I highly recommend Pastor Mike!

Pastor Mike was the officiant at my wedding on April 13, 2013. I just want to say that my husband and I were so blessed to have found Pastor Mike. We are so fortunate to have found him on the wedding site "The Knott", and we could not have chosen a better officiant for our special day. He went above and beyond our expectations, and helped us through the entire process. We met with him on more than one occasion to go over the details of our ceremony, and he was able to give us a complete guideline explaining in detail each part of the ceremony. We used many of his suggestions, including my vows. I cannot say enough good things about Pastor Mike, and I will surely recommend him to anyone I know who is looking for an officiant for their wedding. Thanks Pastor Mike for making our wedding so memorable!!!

Pastor Mike conducted a beautiful ceremony. He was able to include spirituality without being preachy, and also included special touches [into our ceremony] that reflected my Hispanic heritage. Being from out of the area, Pastor Mike was able to meet with us whenever we happened to be in the area and was also prompt to return a call or email.
My wife and I were very pleased with him and we would recommend him to anyone looking to get married in the San Diego area.

Pastor Mike was the perfect fit for us for our wedding!!!! We live in Arizona but had our wedding in San Diego so spent many hours online trying to find the perfect pastor for our ceremony. We met up with three pastors in San Diego before our wedding and knew right away, that Pastor Mike was the one! He was so pleasant to work with and VERY organized with the planning. I had complete 100% confidence in him and appreciate him so much!! The day of our wedding, he had all of the marriage licence papers ready for us to sign and it helped so much being that he had the ability to do all of that for us so we would not have to go to the courts ourselves. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful!! Just like we requested, he kept it romantic, spirtual and FUN. I honestly do not think it could have been any better and I feel so blessed that I found Pastor Mike. Our guests complimented us on how wonderful the ceremony was and how it was one of the best ceremonies they have ever been to. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart Pastor Mike, for making my wedding so beautiful!

He provided us with an outline that we could alter to how we wanted it. All we had to do was print it off and hand it to him and we were set. He made the ceremony flow, and we couldn't have been happier!

Pastor Mike was so sweet, and was the perfect choice for our wedding. He was yet another great recommendation from our wedding planner. He charged a very nominal fee, but it was a great value for the price. He e-mailed us a large selection of passages for each part of the ceremony, and we got to choose what we wanted and add and delete passages as we saw fit. We were able to choose the right ceremony for us. Plus, he is one of a few selected notaries in San Diego that can legally create marriage license. We paid a notary fee, but he created our marriage license application and took it to the courthouse for us. He had also picked it up for us to sign at the wedding. We didn't have to go to the courthouse at all. He did a great job officiating the wedding, and it was clear he had a lot of experience. We made the right choice!

He e-mailed us a large selection of passages for each part of the ceremony, and we got to choose what we wanted and add and delete passages as we saw fit. We were able to choose the right ceremony for us. Plus, he is one of a few selected notaries in San Diego that can legally create marriage license. We paid a notary fee, but he created our marriage license application and took it to the courthouse for us. He had also picked it up for us to sign at the wedding. We didn't have to go to the courthouse at all. He did a great job officiating the wedding, and it was clear he had a lot of experience. We made the right choice! Read less

What an amazing man! He is super nice, charming, professional, AFFORDABLE, and very accommodating! He will meet with you as many times as you want prior to your wedding. He does not do rehearsal but will do a private 'rehearsal' with just you and your soon-to-be-husband/wife. Plus, he can do all of your paperwork, no need to visit the county office/court house! Bonus, he has a lovely speaking voice :) Your the best Pastor Mike!

Pastor Mike was really great to work with! The packet he sends for the ceremony was really helpful and he followed exactly what we wanted. The ceremony ended up starting 30 minutes late but it was not a problem for him. Mid ceremony, the water came up and got half of our guests we, Pastor Mike made a funny joke and everyone was able to move into dry sand without it being a big deal.

I would absolutely recomnmend working with Pastor Mike!

The officiant was the most important part of the day for us. We wanted the ceremony to be special and meaningful and Pastor Mike was perfect. He is warm, empathetic, and calm. His voice was loud enough to be heard by all even though we were outside, with waves crashing. He improvised when a train went by, pausing at just the right moment so that all of us could turn and wave. His pace and inflection were perfect. We met with several officiants and were not impressed and worried if we would find a suitable officiant. Thankfully we remembered Pastor Mike from a wedding we had attended years ago and from the first instant we sat down with him, he was the one for us. He allowed us to pick and choose from his material and ultimately change and customize our ceremony to our liking. I wouldn’t change a thing about our ceremony, thanks Pastor Mike!!!

When we met Pastor Mike, we met him 11 months before our wedding. He was the first pastor we met and the only one because we hit it off from the start. He gave us an idea on what to expect the day of the wedding and asked us what we expected from him. I was a bit concerned that he wouldn't be doing the wedding rehearsal with us but my coordinator, Julie from Best Wedding for You, assured me that he would be there for the wedding. Thats exactly what happened. He did a beautiful wedding and everyone complimented us on our Pastor. I would highly recommend his services.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Pastor Mike. My husband and I come from very different religious backgrounds, and the options Pastor Mike provided us perfectly met our needs and made for a heartwarming ceremony that we personalized to represent our backgrounds and beliefs. His demeanor was very calming and we felt comforted by his presence at our wedding.

Pastor Mike was wonderful. He came highly recommended from a trusted friend and proved himself to be as great as I'd heard. We corresponded over email and he offered lots of possibilities. He met us once and it felt like he had a good read on us, offering just enough guidance without being pushy. The ceremony went off without a hitch and it was a relief to be able to trust him with handling the marriage license stuff too.

Reverend Mike is so nice! I emailed him and he responded quickly and was very friendly. He sent us a word file with possible ceremony content so we could go through it and “check off” what we wanted him to say and include in our ceremony. He’ll even get your wedding license and file it for you after the ceremony.

He messed up a few of the things we changed in the ceremony. For the ring exchange, we changed the words from “giving and receiving” of rings because it reminded us of that Friend’s episode where Joey offers to do Monica and Chandler’s ceremony and he goes on about having, sharing, giving and receiving. Anyway, we thought if he said “giving and receiving” we’d start cracking up so we just changed it to “exchanging” of rings. Anyway, Reverend Mike went back to the original way he had it (probably out of habit) even though he had my copy right in front of him. He also said “you may now kiss the bride” twice. It was hilarious!

We were having a hard time finding an officiant at a decent price that we liked, when we stumbled upon Pastor Mike. I immediately told my then fiance that he was the man I could see marrying us. When we met with him, my feelings were confirmed. He was sweet, smart, funny - a great speaker. I was confident he would pull this off without a hitch. He also had several prepared items that he could show us to give us an idea of how our wedding could go and what things we may want to include. We communicated by phone a few times, in person once or twice and by email lots. He was always quick and pleasant in his response. Fast forward to our wedding day. My Maid of Honor, after checking on all the vendors, comes to tell me tha Pastor Mike does not have the agreed upon ceremony plan with him! This is approximately 10 minutes before the ceremony is to begin. Luckily I had my copy and sent it off with her to give to him. I have no doubt that he could of thought something up and it would have sounded wonderful, but it wouldn't have been exactly what was agreed upon. We wanted mention of a deceased relative and I don't know if that would have been remembered in all of this without my copy. The ceremony went off smoothly, even when the sand ceremony was postponed because the best man (my then 12 year old) nearly fainted. Pastor Mike was seamless in moving past it and focusing everyone back onto the wedding. I recommend him but bring a copy of your ceremony!!!
