After our first meeting with Reverend Michael J. Calderin, we knew that he would be our officiant. He is very professional, kind, and easy to speak with. He was very good at meeting with us over the course of our planning year so that we could get to know each other. It made it more comfortable during the ceremony that we felt like he actually knew us. During the planning phase he also made sure to understand what type of ceremony we wanted and what we were looking to get from him. The ceremony was beyond perfect! Everyone who attended our wedding complemented how wonderful Reverend Michael had made the service. I could not have asked for a better ceremony thanks to him. Thank you again Michael for everything! I'm sure we will stay in touch and I will make sure to recommend you to my family and friends!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Reverend Michael Calderin! My husband and I had a wonderful time getting to know the Reverend and he did a fantastic job of ensuring that we were actively discussing important topics prior to our wedding. During the ceremony, he did such a wonderful job of capturing our personalities and our love for one another. Many of our guests told us it was one of the most special ceremonies they had attended. I definitely recommend the reverend if your looking for a more personal and special ceremony that focuses on the bride and groom. Thank you for everything, Rev! :D

After the first time speaking to Reverend Michael, we knew he was going to be the one to officiate our wedding ceremony. He is one of the kindest people I have ever come in contact with. The second we met him, it seemed like he had been a part of our family forever. He is so great and makes you feel right at ease. Our ceremony was awesome. I had never been to a wedding where I actually remembered what the officiant had said, but i still have people complimenting him. Our ceremony was so personalized and beautiful. People laughed, they cried, they got to share moments with us that no one can ever take away. I know that our wedding day was the start of a great relationship with Reverend Michael and I know he will be a part of our future with children and their lives as well.

Rev. Michael Calderin was a breath of fresh air. He was able to provide the most meaningful ceramony for our day. He met with us prior to our wedding and was available to meet and speak to us at any time. He was affordable and made it simple and easy. We were able to customize our wedding vows and he also offered suggestions and ideas for ceremony ideas, if need be. Our ceremony was intimate and beautiful. With all his experience and his client list, we were honored to have him as our officiant. I would highly recommend him!

How do I even begin to thank Michael for everything he did for our wedding.

From the moment we met him, my husband and I had an instant connection with him. He was so genuine, compassionate, kind and completely understood exactly what we were looking for in our ceremony. But we had no idea how much he would actually impact our wedding day. We stayed in continuous communication with him throughout the entire process and he was so helpful and quick to answer any questions we had.

As my husband and I come from completely different cultures and religions, Michael incorporated both Spanish and Hebrew and made the merging of the cultures so flawless and beautiful.

There was not a dry eye in the room during the ceremony- I cant even tell you how many people mentioned that this was the most beautiful and amazing ceremony they had ever seen.

My husband and I are SO lucky to have had Michael as our officiant and as our friend. I cant thank him enough for everything.

Rev. Michael J. Calderin was on our venues preferred vendor list. We googled him and found great reviews. We immediately contacted him and he was very quick to reply. From the moment we spoke on the phone we knew he was the officiant for us. He was very kind, understanding, down to earth man. Great sense of humor! We eventually met him in person when we flew down to FL and he was wonderful. He had many great suggestions regarding our ceremony. We loved our meeting and conversation. He was not only our wedding officiant but also a great advisor when it came to certain issues we had with one of our vendors.
During our ceremony, he brought tears, laughter & joy to everyone. Beautifully conducted ceremony. We are very thankful to have had him as part of our wedding and now a great friend! Thank you so much. xo

Not only is Reverend Calderin an unbelievable officiant, but he is an incredible person, and my husband and I feel privileged and honored to be married by him. He is the kindest man, dedicated to serving God and his community. He is passionate about creating a beautiful and memorable ceremony, but the service he provides goes SO FAR beyond this! He is passionate about helping couples have successful relationships as husband and wife.

His role in our life started with being our officiant, but throughout the planning process he became so much more significant to my husband and me. He was a counselor to us; we met with him on several occasions. He helped us understand each other, and guided us to better serve each other and God.

On the actual wedding day, he provided us with the most amazing and unforgettable bilingual ceremony!! Not only was it beautiful and unique (as he knew us very well by this point), but it meant so much to us to have Rev. Calderin marry us because we had become so close to him by the time he married us.

My husband and I would highly recommend Rev. Calderin as an officiant. We feel so blessed to have him in our lives, and honored to call him Friend.

Rev Michael did a great job on our wedding day. People enjoyed his service and he was funny. He's very helpful, responsive and flexible. We were planning our wedding out of State and he was very helpful when our license didn't turn up. Thanks Rev Michael

We had a beautiful wedding and Rev. Michael Calderin definitely added a very special touch to our ceremony. He met with us in advance to get to know us and fulfilled all our expectations. He conducted a bilingual ceremony (Spanish and English) and stayed for a blessing at dinner time. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a calm, confident and genuine officiant.
