I am thrilled to have been voted the #1 Best Officiant in Orange County, California for 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013 by MyFoxTelevision HOT LIST viewers. If the links do not work with your browser, simply copy and paste them into your browser location bar. http://oc.cityvoter.com/best/orange-county/winners

And I am also very proud to be one of a handful of Orange County, California Officiants, and the only Laguna Beach Officiant to be listed on the "Martha Stewart's WeddingWire" web site. http://www.weddingwire.com/reviews/reverend-michael-wedding-officiant-laguna-beach/fe663400bf5c9c9d.html

I am competitively and reasonably priced, and offer numerous options, customizations and personalization’s not typically offered by other Officiants. I am a full time Orange County, California Wedding Officiant and I stopped counting after 2,000 Ceremonies. I Officiate at all Orange County, California Hotels, Country Clubs, Parks, Chapels, Beaches and Residences with Personalized, Non Denominational Wedding Ceremonies.

I offer a totally personalized Ceremony from the very beginning to the very end.
By utilizing my services you get the option to decide every word of your Wedding Ceremony, if you want to and you get three choices:
1. Do absolutely nothing. I will compile a very nice, romantic Ceremony for you.
2. Choose any one of the Ceremony samples I send you and make any alterations you wish.
3. Mix and match between all the Ceremony samples I send you, make any changes you wish and add anything you wish.

After your Ceremony, I send you your final Ceremony text and a Certificate of Marriage, and you get to keep them as keepsakes.

"Your Ceremony words are the most important part of your Ceremony", and you can easily pick out or compile the Ceremony you want. The feedback I receive from couples is that after they have picked out their Ceremony text and the promises they want to make to each other, they are much more in tune with their Ceremony than other couples and their "Ceremony Words" have so much more meaning to them than a typical fill in the blank, canned Ceremony. They also get a greater realization of the importance of their vows, their feelings for each other and the institution of marriage. It will also make a major difference for your families and guests during your Ceremony and the memories of your special day.

If you are having your Ceremony outside the Orange County, California area and wish to compile your own personalized Ceremony, hand it to your Officiant or Justice of the Peace and say, "Here read this". I have compiled a book titled: "Wedding Ceremonies Devoted to Love and Commitment". http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/reverendmichael

Please feel free to email me at ReverendMichael@ReverendMichael.com or call me at 949-494-4200 to check my availability, pricing and to receive TWO FREE CEREMONY SAMPLES at no obligation to you.
Please furnish me the below information or as much as you can.
1. The Bride and the Grooms first names.
2. Ceremony date.
3. Ceremony location (City and name of venue).
4. Ceremony start time.
5. Approximate number of guests.

Reverend Michael did a spectacular job on our wedding day! His level of experience is evident in his passionate and professional manor, which begins the moment you start working with him. He truly customizes your ceremony to your liking, provides plenty of helpful information, and had left us and our guests with an amazing and unforgettable ceremony. I would recommend him for anyone looking for an officiant!

I can't praise Reverend Michael enough. He was extremely professional and experienced in his work. He took the time to go through everything in detail, from wedding vows to the ceremony tips and insights, he knows it all and is happy to pass on his expertise to you to make sure your day goes flawlessly. We had a small wedding, with no rehearsal yet with his guidance, it was beautiful and perfect in every way. He took control of the ceremony and made sure everyone was on the same page, from the groom, to the wedding party, to the quartet and the coordinator. He kept reminding me it was my day and was happy to accommodate every detail of my vision.

We were going to have a friend officiant our ceremony, but I am truly happy we decided to go with a professional, and no one is more experienced in this field then Reverend Michael. Kudos, and thank you from both of us.

The thought of planning our wedding was very overwhelming. Especially the wheres and hows. Then my wife came stumbled across a youtube video introducing Michael. So we watched it together and called to set up a consult for the very next day. If you are still contemplating and stressing about the ceremony, DONT. Call Michael. He literally produced the EASY button for the both of us. He is so nice and pleasant and reminds you that this is going to be your day. You are in charge. He will give you examples and experiences [he's been doing this for over 20 years] that will help guide you into making your special day magical. Ask questions because he has answers. We are very happy to have met Michael. It was meant to be. Thank you Michael. Side Note: Dont call him Sir or Reverend!!

Reverend Michael was great to work with. He was very flexible as far as his pricing because our wedding was in Huntington Beach. He is really a professional and he has a lot of experience as an officiant. My coordinator recommended him because she has enjoyed working with him in the past. I was worried about never meeting reverend Michael in person before our wedding, but our ceremony turned out perfect and I was very happy with his services. He is great at responding to emails and I would recommend him to anyone.

I found Reverend Michael through Yelp.com. He had wonderful reviews so i decided to give him a call. After our conversation i knew he was the person to marry my husband and i. He was very detailed and helped me put together a beautiful ceremony. I had lots of questions and he answered every one of them. On the wedding day we were actually a few minutes late (sorry about that :) and he patiently waited with all our family in the gazebo. Everything turned out amazing and it was a day to remember. Thank you again for everything Michael, we really appreciate it.
