Reverend Paul Michael
The biggest reason I am so happy that we had Paul Michael officiate our wedding ceremony is that he allows you to add your personal touch to everything. It takes time, but he helps you to put together a very customized ceremony that represents you and your partner. In the end, it means a very beautiful and intimate ceremony that is meaningful for you instead of a run of the mill wedding ceremony. We got tons of compliments on how personal and beautiful our ceremony was. Paul also is very flexible and will work around all kinds of situations. We had one of our wedding party members feel sick and faint during the ceremony but he handled it perfectly. He made sure she was okay and then kept going without missing a beat. Paul also helps everyone to feel comfortable during the rehearsal and is very good at calming nerves.
While Rev Paul Michael was booked on our wedding day - he gave us several recommended names for us to choose from. This made things SO easy. His website and request service were fantastic. Eventually, we went with Michael Culbertson and just really enjoyed his service.
As your officiant, my role would be a more modern one: your Phoenix officiant guide; I would not be someone who tells you what is right or wrong for you, who thinks they know what is right or wrong for a couple.
When we start working together (after we've met or talked), I will email you my Ceremony Starter Kit, a tool which organizes everything. The Kit includes starting ceremonies, vows, "how to" lists and memorable creative options. All you would have to do is tell me what you like or don't like (and if you are not sure, I will help you find this out). The Kit makes it easy to have a beautiful wedding script. I'd want you two to be able to say: 'This is us. We just love it. This is how we want to start our marriage together.'
A wedding ceremony that's what you want--that matches you--will be like none other in the wedding world. It will be perfect for you. On wedding day, your ceremony will not only splendidly touch each of you and your family, it will touch my life as well. But it won't be luck or something that will get us there (although we are lucky, blessed). It will be because it started with the right ceremony concept (about you two) and then what was needed to be done was done and done well. This is how I support couples to have a great start."
