Rev. Whalen was an absolute pleasure to work with! He was prompt, flexible, allowed us to write our own vows, and took the time to get to know us as a couple prior to the wedding ceremony. It was almost like having an old friend there telling our story to all of our friends and family. He provided my wife and I the opportunity to form the ceremony into exactly what we wanted it to be, and everything was perfect!

Reverend Whalen was amazing. He was really flexible with our meeting locations and patient with our review of the ceremony (we took awhile to get back to him because we had so much on our plate!). He gave us a lot of options for readings and vows for the ceremony. The ceremony really reflected us; the tone and content was perfect. It was my favorite part of the wedding.

We didn't have a wedding coordinator or a representative at our venue. Rev. Whalen lead the rehearsal, letting everyone know where to be and what to do. It really helps to have experienced professionals there on your day. He really went above and beyond, we couldn't have asked for more.

I read all the fabulous reviews for Rev. Whalen online and scheduled a meeting. I was a little nervous about choosing an officiant online but we knew he was the right choice as soon as we met him. He made us feel extremely comfortable and asked a lot of questions about how we met, our relationship, our families, and our vision for the wedding ceremony. He truly listened, took detailed notes, and sweetly incorporated the highlights of our conversations into our ceremony. He provided pages and pages of options to cover every detail and made suggestions during the process. Rev. Whalen arrived early, was extremely well dressed, and again reviewed all of the details for our ceremony. The ceremony was flawless. I would highly recommend Rev. Whalen as the prefect officiant.

Rev. Michael Whalen, performed our ceremony for our wedding on August 13, 2016. His personal and very dignified service was classy and beautiful and his selection of prayers and sermonettes was wonderful. He is the consummate professional and his personal charm added just the right touches. My wife June and I really enjoyed our wedding ceremony which was elegant romantic and an overall beautiful service. Everyone in attendance also commented on his excellence in performing our ceremony. We highly recommend Rev. Whalen, Use him! You will not be disappointed. His fee was modest and very reasonable.

Reverend Whalen did a wonderful job officiating our ceremony and I would strongly recommend him to others who don't already have someone they know to officiate. My husband and I met with Reverend Whalen once before our actual wedding day and we instantly liked him. He's warm, friendly and well spoken. He asked us some questions about what kind of ceremony we wanted and also about our back story and he was able to integrate all of that into the actual ceremony. He sent us a draft not long after our meeting and he provided us with several options for readings--both religious and other. He was always very responsive to my emails throughout the process and he was very flexible about traveling a pretty good distance north to be there on our wedding day. After our wedding, many of our guests complimented us on the ceremony and asked us how we knew him. Since I don't think the officiant is normally something that most people comment on I just think that goes to show what a really great job he did. Although Reverend Whalen didn't actually know either of us prior to our wedding, he did a great job personalizing the ceremony and it showed! We really could not have been happier with him.

Rev. Michael Whalen exceeded our expectations for our wedding ceremony! He answered our every email question immediately no matter the time of day and was professional throughout the entire process. Rev. Whalen got to know my fiancé and I and even included a part in the ceremony where he spoke of our relationship and our engagement. Our guests thought he was a long time family friend! I recommend Rev. Whalen to marry you! He made our ceremony the perfect mix of different traditions for us as a multi-religious couple. My guests are all still saying "That was the most beautiful ceremony I have ever been too!"

Rev. Michael Whalen was so helpful to us throughout the entire wedding planning process! When we first met with him, he really took the time to get to know us and help us create a ceremony that really reflected us as a couple. He also met with us again to go through the final ceremony (after sending us a draft for review and comments) and to make sure that we were happy and comfortable with everything. The day of the wedding, he was very organized and coordinated with our venue and bridal party to make sure everyone was on the same page and documents were ready to go. Completely stress free! Rev. Michael's demeanor and presentation during the ceremony was beautiful!! We were so happy that it was customized for us - it meant a lot. And he had the perfect mix of sentimentality and a little humor! Our guests thought he was wonderful and we were so happy with our decision. We truly could not have imagined a better ceremony!!

Rev. Whalen performed our July 3, 2016 ceremony at the English Manor, and he did an amazing job. He worked with us to craft a unique ceremony and had plenty of suggestions and options. The result was a ceremony with just the right amount of personalization, the appropriate sentiment, and the perfect length. Rev. Whalen was easy to work with and easy to contact throughout my planning process, and a total professional at every step. Our guests could not stop raving about how great our ceremony was! Highly recommend!!! THANK YOU AGAIN! Melissa & Adam
