A wonderful service!

Thank You Matthew,
Lori and I greatly appreciated your efforts and services as Officiant at our wedding. Your ability to guide us through the ceremony planning process, including providing some suggestions for the readings and vows made us comfortable with the preparations. We also appreciated your flexibility in incorporating a reading selection of our own into the ceremony, and in adding a brief rehearsal on only a few days notice to ensure the ceremony went smoothly . Our guests enjoyed the short story of how the two of us met. We are certain your skills in fine tuning the writing of that story, along with smooth recitation of the story along with the rest of the ceremony contributed to that enjoyment. We are fortunate that we found you to perform our ceremony. Greg and Lori 04/2016

Simple and Sweet at Silver Lake

Thank you Matthew for meeting us at Silver lake on a wet and chilly morning in October. Our fall ceremony turned out perfect. It was simple and quick with just my groom and I, exactly how we imagined it. Matthew is charming and welcoming. He worked hard to write us the perfect vows and readings for our handfasting ceremony. I highly recommend his this witty and wonderful officiant. Plus he is very reasonably priced.
Thanks again,
Freda &

Mathew was great!

He was quick to respond and very accommodating to any changes we wanted to make with our ceremony. I would recommend him to any of our friends!

Couldn't have asked for a better day!

Matthew did a fantastic job as the officiant for our small wedding ceremony! He was called on short notice and was still able to prepare an excellent ceremony. He included everything we wanted and nothing we didn't. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding.

Absolutely Perfect

Matt and his wife were absolutely amazing, such sweet and genuine people. The ceremony was better than we ever could have hoped and Matt played a HUGE role in that. He helped us customize the experience so well. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone getting married. Thanks so much Matt!

Matthew and his wife Donna are the sweetest most helpful couple we have ever had the pleasure of meeting! My husband and I are so grateful for their part in our wedding. It truly would not have been that perfect day with out them involved. We truly from the bottom of our hearts feel greatful to have crossed paths with Matt and Donna. I recommend them to ANYONE! Matthew writes the ceremonies and ours was perfect. It blended what my husband and I felt we wanted while also pleasing the two different family back grounds. I give 5 stars! 10 stars? Am I allowed to give more? Just putting a rating on a page can't possibly describe how perfect their part was in mine and my husbands wedding.

Just what we wanted...perfect.

We could not have asked for a better officiant to officiate our ceremony. We contacted him with little time to spare and he and made us feel at ease with his easy going no worries demeanor. Matt was there for us when we had any questions and always made time for us. I could tell he truly cared about us and our ceremony even though we had never met. The things that Matt wrote for the wedding were absolutely perfect. He engaged the guests and made everyone feel comfortable and not stuffy. He had provided comic relief with heartfelt blessings and spiritual references. I am so glad it worked out for all of us and cant thank Matt enough for conducting such a great laid-back ceremony. I would recommend him to anyone, Thank you Matt!

Wonderfully done

Matthew was the perfect addition to our special day. His ceremony outline was humorous and light hearted. He kept everyone smiling and engaged throughout the entire wedding. I also loved how he included our children in the vows. It will be a day that we will cherish forever. Thank you Matthew!
