Congratulations on your upcoming wedding.

When you select Pastor Mike to officiate your wedding you'll be working with a very detailed oriented officiant who is a great communicator, very easy to get along with and one of the highest rated wedding officiants on Long Island. In addition to his duties as a full time pastor Pastor Mike also serves as House Ceremony Officiant at Watermill Caterers, Old Field Club and Meadows Edge at West Sayville Country Club. Additionally, Flowerfield, Timberpointe Country Club and Ocean Bleau all recommend Pastor Mike to their brides and grooms.

I'll start by saying that I truly can't say enough amazing things about Pastor Mike. My husband and I we're very picky when looking for someone to marry us because we wanted the ceremony to be the most beautiful moment of our wedding. We heard about Pastor Mike through someone and from the moment we met him, we knew he was the one to marry us. He was so genuine and cared about making our ceremony personal and beautiful. He met with us a few times before the wedding and we always kept in contact with him leading up to the big day. He was always easy to get I touch with and got back to me right away with any questions I ever had. The day of our wedding came and it was honestly the most perfect ceremony. It seemed like he knew us for years and he added such a personal touch to our ceremony with his own insight and passion. We had grown men crying the whole time and we still have people calling saying how amazing our ceremony was. I can't thank Pastor Mike enough for making our ceremony a dream come true, he was the perfect Pastor and truly cared about making our wedding the best day of our lives. If your looking for someone to marry you, Pastor Mike is amazing and I will forever remember that day and how he helped make our wedding a day we will never forget.

Can't recommend Pastor Mike enough! He's a true professional. From the beginning he was extremely responsive and helpful in helping us put together the ceremony. He also has a very soothing voice that projects well for an outdoor venue! So many of our guests asked where we found him because they were so impressed.

Pastor Mike helped my husband and I create a beautiful ceremony. Many of our guests later told us that it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies that they had ever attended. It was very important to my husband and I that our ceremony reflected us as a couple. Pastor Mike suggested some ideas to help us create a unique and memorable ceremony. Most importantly, Pastor Mike was a calming presence before, during, and after the ceremony. I would recommend him highly.

Pastor Mike was amazing to work with and helped make our ceremony incredibly personalized and meaningful. My husband and I planned our wedding from out of state and Pastor Mike was incredibly flexible and allowed us to do all of the planning via skype and email. His "wedding packet" covered everything that you could think of, and he flawlessly executed all the little changes and additions we asked for. During the process I felt I was in very capable hands and I could not be happier with the results!

Pastor Mike was warm, wonderful, kind, professional and I can keep going. He made our special day just that...special. He was very organized and full of suggestions to make our ceremony unique to us. I cannot say enough good things about this man. My husband and I agreed when we have our renewal ceremony, we will call again on Pastor Mike for his services. Thank you Mike!!!

I got Pastor Mike's name based on a recommendation from a friend of mine and after reading other reviews and watching some videos of him officiating weddings I really wanted to use him. The first time I spoke with him I felt comfortable almost immediately, so we set up an appointment and met with him. He listened to what we wanted our ceremony to be like and made the whole process super easy for us. He was always very professional and has a great sense of humor. To anyone looking I would absolutely recommend using Pastor Mike as an officiant.

Pastor Mike was extremely helpful and key to making our ceremony run so smoothly. There is not one bad thing I can say about his services. So I will just list all the positives.
First, his knowledge of current technology made him very convenient to work with. We did not have to travel to meet him, as he was available via Skype, email and phone- whenever we needed him. This was so key for me, because we are super busy and our venue is not close to home. It was great to have one less thing to travel for.
We are somewhat of a mixed couple, Catholic and Christian- and we didn't have a strong desire to get married in a catholic church (which requires lots of meetings, rituals, time and money). Had that been something very important to us, he could have provided it. However, he never made us feel like our choice to hold our ceremony at our venue- was less official, or not as special as in a church.
Pastor Mike let us customize our ceremony, which was really fun to do. Within the very organized booklet of choices, he provided some really unique options, like a wine box ceremony, which I did not know existed. A lot of our guests mentioned how much they LOVED this idea and that they were going to steal it. He also let us change a few aspects of it to fit our needs. (We chose to read the letters the night before the ceremony, rather than just put them in the box)
His positive attitude and calm demeanor was very welcome on our hectic wedding day. His delivery of the ceremony was amazing- he hit laugh points, sentimental points, and spoke very clearly.

I cannot thank you enough Pastor Mike, for making our day so special, unique and truly unforgettable.

We are finally getting around to our wedding reviews; two months later. Pastor Mike was warm and welcoming from the day we met him and we left our first visit with a pastor!! As soon as my husband and I got into the car after leaving his home, we discussed how he was exactly what we were looking for and that we were thrilled that he was available for our date! He was prompt in responding to my emails and phone calls and because of my busy schedule we did the majority of our communication through email, which was perfect for me!! There were so many options to customize our ceremony and it give us the freedom to make it special to the two of us. Everything came out exactly as we discussed and ceremony went off without a hitch!

Thank you again, Pastor Mike!

Our ceremony was great! Pastor Mike did an amazing job of incorporating everything that we wanted to include in our ceremony. From honoring our loved ones that have passed to including an irish blessing at the end of the ceremony. We were able to customize our ceremony and also keep some of our traditions which was great. He was flexible with his schedule, very organized, and explained everything we needed to know to us.

From the moment we met Pastor Mike, we knew we liked him. He made us feel comfortable, was thorough, and most importantly, let us know that our wedding was about us and we could make the ceremony tailored to who we are as a couple. At our initial meeting he covered all the details we needed to know, so much so I don't think we had one question. We both liked him - his manner and his genuine personality. We knew it was a good fit. Communication was always easy during the wedding planning process, and was NEVER a cause for concern. Needless to say the ceremony at our wedding was flawless, personal, and heartfelt. We received dozens of compliments on the ceremony and the Pastor. We couldn't have asked for a better ceremony, and are so happy we found Pastor Mike!

After spending 10 minutes with pastor Mike, we knew we wanted him to be part of our wedding. There are a few things that stood out to us....
- even though we had never met, we felt super comfortable with him and knew he'd do a great job telling our story. He genuinely wants to get to know you so he can tailor the ceremony to you and your partner.
- he is super organized! You can dictate if you want a religious, non religious, or something in the middle ceremony. Then he has everything mapped out for you so you don't have to start from scratch. He has great ideas to choose from but is happy to include just about anything you want.
- he holds the audiences attention. He has great stage presence and injects his humor and wit when it makes sense. Our family and friends all said he was phenomenal.

We started out thinking we would have someone we know do the ceremony, opposed to a professional. One meeting with Pastor Mike was all it took to change our minds and we couldn't be happier with our experience. We would recommend him to any couple looking for a wedding officiant.

Pastor Mike was great! My husband and I had an issue with a prior officiant and we called our venue right away for a recommendation and they told us of Pastor Mike. When I contacted him it was a month before our wedding, and as we were without an officiant I was very upset and nervous at that time, but Pastor Mike agreed to meet with us that very day and the instant we met with him we were sure that he was going to be perfect for us. He was friendly and attentive and very professional. He listened to our concerns and wishes and with the aid of his suggested readings and vows, he allowed us to tailor our ceremony so that it was special and unique to us. Our wedding was outside and it was very hot that day and Pastor Mike was able to get us through the ceremony quickly without making it seem rushed at all. We got several compliments from guests on our choice of Pastor Mike. We couldn't have been happier with Pastor Mike's services and definitely recommend him to others!

Many of our wedding guests commented that our ceremony was absolutely beautiful, particularly our vows. Pastor Mike was able to put together a ceremony that was unique and memorable. I would definitely recommend him to any couple hoping to have an unforgettable ceremony like ours.

We contacted Pastor Mike a few weeks before the wedding after I realized my church pastor was unable to perform our ceremony. Pastor Mike contacted me back the same day and within in a few days we sat down together and went over our ceremony. We filled out our paper work and he did the rest. The day of the wedding right before the ceremony there was some major confusion and I started to stress a little. He saw this and Pastor Mike pulled me away and we went into the bridal suite... he then prayed over me and my marriage. For someone who did not know us very long and it being set just a few weeks before, Pastor Mike created a beautiful personalized wedding ceremony. We got so many compliments. Thank you Pastor Mike!

Our ceremony was so memorable, and not just for us, but for our guests as well. Needless to say, it's all everyone keeps talking about! I have had numerous people tell me that our wedding ceremony was so different and unique in the sense that they were actually drawn into listening! It really was beautiful, the way he told our story of how we met. You would have thought he was there with us that special day. It was so touching and there was not a dry eye in the house!

My husband and I wanted to get married before God but not at a church. My husband was raised Catholic and my church growing up was Evangelical. We decided to have an officiant who was neither one or the other but who rather focused on the meaning of being married with God at the head of the ceremony. None of the churches in the North Fork region of Long Island would allow their pastor/priest to marry us outside of the physical church so we felt a bit stuck. We didn't want to hire a justice of the peace because we definitely wanted a religious ceremony. Pastor Mike was a God-sent. He truly is the ideal person to go to if you encounter a problem like ours, or even if you don't. He proved to be a very approachable, friendly, understanding and openminded pastor. I personally was glad he led a congregation of his own, at his own church. If my husband and I had wanted to, we could have attended a few of his services on Sundays. Distance made it difficult for us but I was glad we had that option. In terms of the choices for the ceremony, there were so many things we could have done and so many great ideas. My husband and I were able to give our Mothers roses and even commemorate my late father during the ceremony...this was truly important to me. The ceremony was wonderful and just what we wanted. He took care of everything and in the whirlwind of things, I didn't have to ask him any questions or check up on anything...all was taken care of. Thank you Pastor Mike. Our day was so special and the ceremony you led was the beginning of a wonderful wedding day!

We found Pastor Mike on TheKnot and he was also a recommended vendor from our videographer. Upon meeting him, we liked how friendly and relaxed he was. He let us design our ceremony exactly the way we wanted. We are not a very religious couple so the focus of our ceremony was our story and love for one another. Everything went smoothly and he did a great job. Our family and friends said it was one of the best they have ever been to because it seemed like he knew us and the ceremony really focused on us. We put a lot of energy into providing him with details about our relationship and this made the ceremony feel very special. We are so happy we chose Pastor Mike and we definitely recommend him.

To whomever is considering an officiant for their wedding-

We do not give all of those 5 lightly. We could not find one single negative aspect from the initial meeting through ceremony. He was kind, caring, timely, and professional. He has a wonderful presence.

Clearly, he gets our highest recommendation.

We were planning our wedding from the west coast and Pastor Mike answered all of our questions quickly through email. We were able to discuss our readings and provide our couple's story online. He was flexible and open to our ideas and incorporated them in our ceremony. We had the pleasure of seeing Pastor Mike marry my brother and his wife and also be the officiant at our wedding. He made both myself and my husband feel comfortable and calm from the very first meeting we had with him. We continue to recieve compliments about how Pastor Mike incorporated honoring our families by acknowledging their long committment to each other.

From the moment I spoke to Pastor Mike on the phone I knew he was the one we were looking for. He was wonderful from the beginning to the end. Pastor Mike was there for both of us spiritually and helped us plan a ceremony that was perfect. A ceremony that guests were coming off the beach saying it was one of the best wedding ceremonies they have been to.

Gavin & I were married by Pastor Mike Cassara at Giorgio's in Baiting Hallow and he did a wonderful job. We are both Christians and it was important to us that our ceremony be filled with the love of Jesus in words and actions. Pastor Mike did a wonderful job and we received compliments from many of our guests how warm and special our ceremony was. He made our wedding day vows and true meaning of a wedding, which is to celebrate the love of two people joined together by God, incredibly memorable. We are currently attending weekly services at Pastor Mike's church in Nesconset and he has become a special part of our lives, who is now our Pastor, We highly recommend Pastor Mike.

Pastor Mike was wonderful. He provided us with touching readings for our ceremony and customized it to our preferences. He was warm and very memorable in his words and excerpts which I felt described our relationship and bond to a tee. Being that I am Hindu and my husband is Christian, Pastor Mike was able to cater to both our religions and make the entire ceremony very spiritual. Our sand ceremony was extremely touching the sand and memory will be with us forever.

Thank you so much!

Pastor Mike officiated a family member's wedding in 2005, and our own wedding in 2012. Our ceremony was tasteful, personal, and everything we could have ever hoped for.

Pastor Mike helped us customize our ceremony, with some beautiful readings and informed suggestions. He gave us a very accurate estimate for the duration of the ceremony which helped us stay on schedule.

My wife and I had family/friends comment that the officiant did a great job of telling our story, and they could really feel the love. He is a poised, gracious and experienced professional. Pastor Mike is great at what he does and obviously loves what he does.

Both my husband and I did not want to get married in a church (he was raised Jewish but not practicing) and wanted to have an outdoor, short yet sweet ceremony. Pastor Mike was unfortunately unavailable for our date but his partner Pastor Paul filled in. We were given different options to chose from to make the ceremony our own yet follow a basic guideline. Our ceremony lasted about 15 minutes and included options like a sand ceremony and an Irish Blessing. I would recommend to anyone who is looking to pick and chose their own details/layout for the ceremony without many religious mentions.

Pastor Mike completed the beautiful wedding ceremony I've always dreamed of. He provided a variety of wording selections ranging from religious and traditional to using the vows that my husband and I decided to write. Pastor Mike provided immediate and helpful feedback during the planning process while I was designing our wedding programs and working out the wording for the ceremony. He arrived at the venue on time and handled all of our paperwork in a timely manner. He brought character and feeling to the ceremony with both his words and his manner of speaking.

Pastor Mike was an excellent officiant for our wedding. He was on time, easy to work with and on top of it. We live outside of Syracuse NY and he was able to use Skype to plan our ceremony. Marriage certificate was waiting for us when we got back from our honeymoon, so he must have filed it immediately.

He did a great job speaking and kept the length appropriate. The icing on the cake was that he was significantly cheaper than several others we had looked at.

Pastor Mike Weddings responded with the following comments:

I believe based on the review that the O.O this couple gave me on Flexibility was probably an oversight on their part where they skipped this rating.

Pastor Mike gave us exactly the feel we wanted for our ceremony. We wanted a religious ceremony without all the restrictions usually experienced in a church and Pastor Mike delivered exactly what we asked for. He provided us with readings and suggestions but ultimately our wishes were the final word. I was even asked by a guest for a copy of the ceremony and our vows. It was perfect and beautiful.
