Hi Paul,
The ceremony was perfect for us because you took the time to tailor the ceremony to our specifications, we were able to have complete faith in your abilities and had zero worries because it was clear from the get-go that you cared about giving us the best service you can give. And it is nice that you called and e-mailed us without us calling you for information and trying to ensure you will do a good job. We expected a good service, but you delivered a great service.

It was also perfect because you took the time to talk to Jason's son, Todd, which was unexpected considering the time we gave you was very last minute. And it was so touching for me, to hear Todd's advice! You can tell a lot about a person or business when they do things or do extra tasks, when they don't have to do them.

People cried, which was great, because that is what I wanted, and as a bride doing all the planning, I felt successful if people cried! :) I think the ILY's really helped, so, of course, I need to give you the credit in that area because that was a great idea. People also laughed at the ILY's, and that personalized it for us a lot and helps for other people to really relate.I have received a lot of comments that our wedding was beautiful, perfect, and memorable enough to make people float on air for the weekend.

Additionally, you were very professional, helpful, guided us with ease, and perfect on the timing/duration of the ceremony. We were very fortunate to have met you and have you conduct our ceremony. Thank you very much (if you need to use me as a referral, just let me know. I just prefer to keep my last name anonymous if published.

Rev. Paul Michael
You performed the ceremony back in June. Tim and I have to tell you that the ceremony was everything that you said it would be. I cannot tell you how many guests came up to me afterward to tell me how much they enjoyed the ceremony and how beautiful everything turned out. Everyone especially liked the Love You part and I was told by a friend that during that part, there was not a dry eye in the crowd. You were absolutely right about that part and I can only say that every couple should incorporate this into their ceremony. It just made it that much more memorable for us and I only wish that I had a video so that I could capture everything that was said as a keepsake of our ceremony. You made this day a day that the both of us will never forget and for that I am eternally grateful. I also want to thank you for allowing us to customize not only the vows but every other aspect of the ceremony.. . .Every couple should be so lucky to have you as their officiant. Sincerely, Tim and Robin.

Dear Paul,
Wild horses could not have kept us from thanking you for the truly touching ceremony for our recent wedding but moving out of our house, which sold two days after the wedding and packing up out belongings into a temp place, my Mother's, could. We are back East for a few weeks then we close on our new house. Getting back to the wedding, the day could not have been more glorious and the ceremony you prepared was pretty amazing. Our family is still talking about the love you-part. You were so right about doing this. Thank you for making our day so special. Best Regards, and again,
Thank You, John and Rachel

Paul,
We loved EVERYTHING about our ceremony!!! Dozens of our guests have told us how wonderful it was --- the best ceremony they've ever been a part of, many said. The room glowed with the positive energy and jumped when you (did your ice breaker opening)!!! I loved that part!!! The audience involvement rocked!!! The whole ceremony was such a perfect fit for our personalities, even though we hadn't had a chance to meet before zero hour!!! We appreciate how well you were able to roll with the moments. You have an impeccable sense of timing, fanning the embers of humor when they spark and all the while paying proper homage to God, spirituality and the sanctity of marriage!!! We loved it!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!! Sincerely,Jamie Purdy

Dear Rev. Paul Michael,
I am not even sure where to start. It’s just over two weeks since our wedding, and Jack and I are still on cloud nine, and we owe a big part of that feeling to you. Our wedding, as for most brides and grooms I would guess, was truly one of the most important day's in our life. We wanted it to be special and memorable not only for us as a couple, but for all our guests. Our families were fairly skeptical of a non- denominational ceremony, most all of our family and friends have had very traditional church weddings. Jack and I were new to Arizona, only moving here a year prior to the wedding. When we decided to have our special day in AZ, there was a huge task of finding the best of the best without knowing anyone here and without any family locally to help us through this. When I inquired with our string quartet we hired for the ceremony and asked them who they would recommend to officiate a ceremony, I remember vividly them saying, "If you want a special ceremony with true sincerity, you need to hire Paul Michael".

We met with you shortly afterward and had only positive feelings about our interaction. You also had some interesting ideas to incorporate into the ceremony and that intrigued me. We liked your take on the wedding ceremony, saying that the ceremony was "ours", not yours and that we could do what we wanted with the ideas and vows. I was able to cut and paste a traditional ceremony together with your amazing ideas.I wanted a ceremony like no one else's, special to Jack and me and special to everyone involved.
(Then) a year later, we had the most perfect ceremony. Your amazing ideas like the Legacy made our ceremony amazing. There was not a dry eye at our ceremony and just when I thought I might
tear up again, you would make us all laugh. Jack and I never thought we would be the couple that got emotional during our wedding ceremony, but it was hard not too with how special every spoken word
turned out to be.

Since the wedding, I have gotten numerous phone calls and hand written notes, saying that our wedding was "good for their marriage", that it made some couples re-evaluate their marriage, and that
some couples now want to renew their vows. Some guests expected a quick 10 minutes ceremony and then off to the reception, but they got so much more. I would not change one thing, not one. I only wish I had hired a videographer to capture our most special ceremony, so we could replay it over and over again. I hope this letter serves as a resounding endorsement for you as a wedding officiant for any bride to be. You truly have a gift. Thanks for making our wedding ceremony perfect!Sincerely, Jack and Kristine.

Hi Paul,
We want to thank you once again, for making our day so very special for us. We will NEVER forget the ceremony, and the way that you delivered it! We are honored that you were able to stay for our reception with us as well, it meant a lot to us both. We hope to see you at many more weddings, and again appreciate all that you have done.

Dear Paul,
I can't believe it’s already 3 months since the big day! First of all, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful ceremony you performed. We received tons of compliments from
our family and friends about how meaningful and unique it was. The creative ideas that you offered us were a huge hit! Both Dave and I really enjoyed the whole experience as well. It was exactly what we
wanted. I can't thank you enough for everything. Tiffany, Catering Director

Hi Paul,
I have to say it was definitely a pleasure meeting you today. When leaving this afternoon, I walked away with such a good feeling. For the past few weeks, I have been running around crazy trying to get everything organized. After meeting with you today, I came to the realization that the most important thing is the ceremony and the meaning behind the ceremony. I believe you are going to help make this most memorable for both Casey and I. Thank you. April & Casey

Hi Reverend Michael,
First of all, you need to know right up front that EVERYONE, LOVED the ceremony! Joe and I felt that it was the perfect balance of religion, marital seriousness and light humor. It wasn't too heavy, not too religious and not too funny. The balance was wonderful. There was something for everyone. And you are the man who kept it all together! Thank you so very much. Kathy is my only daughter and we are very close. It was very, very important to me that the ceremony was perfect. Anyone can have a wild party/reception, but putting together the absolutely perfect ceremony for two people you hardly know; well, that takes experience and talent. Joe and I particularly liked the way you had the two of us (present) Kathy to Dave. I liked the way you dealt with the rings; I thought the words and the symbolism were thought provoking and wonderful. We had a young man come up to us the next day and tell us that he "hates weddings, just hates them!" But he LOVED Kathy and Dave's. He couldn't stop talking about it. Again, thank you so much for the wonderful wedding! Mr. and Mrs. Charles Krupp, Parents of the Bride.
