Humor and Sentimental

Upon meeting Mitch, my husband and I knew Mitch was the right officiant for us. He answered all of our questions quickly and efficiently, and made us feel at ease. On the day of our wedding, Mitch kept everyone calm. We are still getting compliments regarding our ceremony. We're the type of couple that are usually joking so Mitch was the perfect officiant for us. He kept our ceremony lighthearted and memorable. We would recommend Mitch to anyone looking for an officiant that will make their ceremony fun.

Experience is everything.

We strongly recommend Mitch to officiate your wedding. He was funny at times and kept the crowed engaged. You can tell that he has a lot of experience officiating weddings. He was very natural, didn't sound rehearsed, wasn't reading from a paper. After the wedding we had a number of people come up to us to tell us how great they thought he was. Someone even mentioned that it was great how he was very natural about moving out of the way and moving to the side when we were placing the rings on each other so that the photographer could get a number of pictures of just my husband and I. They commented that they wished their officiant had done the same for them. We are very glad that we picked Mitch to officiate our wedding!

Mitch The Minister is such a PRO

Kelsey said... Mitch performed our wedding ceremony at Rock Island Lake Club in Sparta, NJ on 8/7/16. I came across his services via The Knot/Wedding Wire, and he caught my eye based on stellar reviews. I have to agree! Mitch met with us at a diner near our house in October, and we spent 2 hours chatting. I loved his laid back style, although I have to say, I started getting nervous when he said he doesn't really "write things down"! Leading up to the wedding, we worked together to make sure the ceremony incorporated readings and prayers that were important to us, and reassured me throughout the entire process. He's not your conventional, stuffy officiant and did a great job bringing FUN and personality to our ceremony while keeping it meaningful and emotional. If we ever renew our vows I know who I will call! Thanks Mitch!

Mitch made our day!!

Our wedding was on August 12, 2016 at the Primavera Regency in Stirling NJ. One of my bridesmaids had been to a wedding where Mitch performed the ceremony and she recommended him. We met him a few months before the wedding and immediately felt very comfortable around him. He got to know me and my now husband and was accommodating by meeting us close to where we live. He is very prompt with returning calls and emails and very easy to work with. He helped us choose readings that were perfect for our relationship and the gave us the type of wedding ceremony we wanted to have. He had our guests laughing, crying, and we received nothing but compliments on our ceremony. If you want a ceremony to remember, I highly recommend Mitch the Minister.

Mitch is wonderful!

Mitch is wonderful! From our first meeting, we knew we had picked the right person to perform our ceremony, and we got so many compliments on it afterwards. He made people laugh and cry, and it was truly a memorable moment in our lives (even with the planes flying by). We couldn't have asked for a better person to marry us!

Princess Bride

Margaret said... I cannot say enough wonderful things about Minister Mitch! He was our officiant for our ballpark wedding in October 2016 at TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater, NJ. From our first phone conversation with Minister Mitch, to our lunch meeting, to our wedding day, Mitch was genuine, humorous, professional, comforting, and helpful. We felt immediately at ease around him and knew that our guests would enjoy the personalized ceremony Mitch created for us. Minister Mitch started our ceremony by quoting the "mawidge" scene from The Princess Bride and did such a fantastic job that our guests were laughing in the stadium seats. . If you are looking for a unique minister to celebrate your love as a couple and who will give your ceremony the heartfelt attention it deserves, Minister Mitch is the one for the job. Thank you, Minister Mitch! We "wuv" you!

Mitch is wonderful

From the day Tom and I met Mitch - we knew he was the perfect minister to perform our wedding ceremony. He came highly recommended by a friend and by our photographer- Veronica Yankowski Ligouri , owner of VeroLuce Photography. This was a second wedding for both of us and we wanted a serious but lighthearted ceremony. Mitch combined the perfect mix of sentiment and laughter throughout the ceremony. He created a very personal ceremony about us - which is something we will always remember. Our guests loved him and so did we. Thank you Mitch!

We knew Mitch was for us

After a few minutes into our first meeting with Mitch, we knew right then we were going to book him for our wedding day. In the brief 45 minutes that we spent with him, he moved me from laughter to on the brink of tears and that is exactly what we wanted our wedding ceremony to be like. Our guest agreed that our ceremony was the perfect mix of emotions and Mitch definitely eased our nerves up at the alter. We could not have asked for a better start to our celebration of our lives together.

Mitch was AMAZING!

I am so happy we contacted him to be our officiant for our wedding! He was a pleasure to work with. He is so funny and easy going. We've been to so many weddings where the ceremonies are stiff and drawn out. Our ceremony was fun! Full of laughter, tears, and special moments. It was quick but so memorable. All of our guests said he was awesome! I would highly recommend Mitch to any couple who is looking for an officiant. He was great! You will not be disappointed.

He also made our guests laugh the entire time which for us was very important :) Mitch is awesome and truly made our ceremony very special and unique and we truly loved him and would recommend him!! The new LaRosas love Mitch the minister :-)

We recommend Mitch

I do not know where to start with Mitch. He will make you laugh, he will make you cry, he will threaten to confiscate your guests phones during the ceremony when you ask for an Unplugged Wedding. I told Mitch from the beginning that I cry over everything but he was able to take that nervousness that I had and put me at ease. Our family and friends were so impressed with Mitch. My unmarried guests are looking to book Mitch for their future weddings. He made the ceremony so memorable. During our initial meeting, we had a discussion about silly wedding favors and he inspired me to follow through with doing a donation to two charities on our day to help out some dogs in need (Mitch is a dog person too!). Mitch is truly a professional and worth every penny to make your day special and memorable for years to come.

Mitch was perfect!

My husband and I really enjoyed having Mitch as our officiant on our wedding day. Our ceremony was perfect, heartfelt but lighthearted. My husband is Christian and I am Jewish. Mitch did a great job of blending the two faiths into the ceremony and was sure to explain everything (unity candle, the chuppah, breaking of the glass) which our guests LOVED. As we went around table to table greeting our guests at the reception, almost every person complimented us on our ceremony! And we're still getting compliments on our officiant and ceremony to date! Thanks Mitch!!! Alison and Dave

Very Professional

We hired Mitch for our wedding on 10/22/2017, and are so happy we did! Our venue let us in late, and even with all the craziness of then both losing and then finding our wedding license, Mitch stayed to marry us with no complaints. He was both professional and funny, and it truly felt like we had known him for years from the moment we met him. Everyone thought our ceremony was wonderful! My wife and I couldn't be happier that we chose him to marry us! Thank you so much Mitch!

We love Mitch

Mitch the Minister has the innate ability to make you feel as if you’re the only couple in the world and the only purpose he was ordained was to perform your wedding. It’s what everyone wants to feel and we can’t express the amount of gratitude we have for him for performing our nuptials. We sat with Mitch a few times before the big day, and each time we loved him even more. He also gave us some important tips for the big day like never try to memorize your vows because you most likely will screw it up. Boy, are we glad we took that advice. He also provided some practical advice like how to obtain your marriage license. Our last private meeting with Mitch was the day of the wedding right before the ceremony in our hotel suite. As you could imagine, we were a bundle of nervous energy, and Mitch with his ever calming voice, sat us down and reminded us what the day was all about – us. That brief meeting put us exactly in the right frame of mind for what was about to happen.

Mitch is so understanding

Mitch created the perfect ceremony for my husband and I. He had us laughing and crying which was perfect. He took the time to honor my grandparents who had just passed before the wedding, and with so much heaviness around us, Mitch created a warm, lighthearted ceremony which was just what we needed. My family could not stop talking about how great he was and if they could do it again, they would ask Mitch to take part in their day!

Amazing

Mitch was amazing! I cannot tell you how many people complimented us on him and asked how we met. He was absolutely perfect and the right mix of light and serious. Also, I realized 13 days before our wedding that I booked him for the wrong day but Mitch was amazing and flexible! Thank you!

We found the best!

My husband and I were just married by Mitch on January 16th and I can't say enough good things about him. From the moment we met with Mitch we knew he was a perfect fit for us. We really wanted a personal ceremony that centered around our love and that truly represented us. Mitch understood that perfectly and gave us exactly what we wanted. He knew we didn't take ourselves too seriously and performed a heartfelt ceremony with a touch of brilliant humor that left everyone in awe. All of our guests came up to my husband and I several times throughout the night to express how much they loved Mitch! It's two weeks later and we are still receiving compliments about our ceremony! Thank you so much Mitch for making our day so special, you are one of a kind and we are so thankful we chose you!!

Mitch is the best!!!

Mitch is the best!!! From our first meeting with Mitch, he could tell we are not a very serious couple, all about the mushy sentimental stuff. We can be serious, but also appreciate a good laugh :) He tailored our ceremony so perfectly to be a great combination of sentiment and humor. He made all of our guests laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time. So many of our guests were approaching us after the ceremony to say what an amazing job Mitch did, and how he officiated the most perfect ceremony for the two of us. If you are looking for an officiant for your wedding, take the time to meet with Mitch. You will not be disappointed!

Great to work with

Mitch has such an infectious personality and is exactly the type of person you want standing in front of you to help you take your vows. We saw Mitch perform a ceremony of our friends and instantly knew that we wanted him to be our officiant. Not only was he was able to put both of our nerves at ease on the day of the wedding, but after only talking to him for a short while, he put together an absolutely beautiful ceremony which was exactly how we had envisioned!! Mitch truly made the day special and about us and really helped us to live in the moment by pointing out just how meaningful each small piece of the day was. Not to mention, we received so many compliments on our ceremony!! Thanks Mitch!

Wonderful

What can I say? I LOVE Mitch!! My ceremony was unique and he added his special touch and humor to it. Everyone was asking about him after the ceremony and telling me how much they loved the ceremony also. Mitch made my day and took my anxiety level way down. He was absolutely amazing and I highly highly recommend him!

Pick Mitch

I can't say enough good things about Mitch. He set the tone perfectly for our wedding with his sweet words from the heart and his humor. He is the best in the business. As all of our vendors were asking who our officiant was, the second we mentioned him, they all said we were in good hands and we definitely were. He was professional, he was kind, he made us and all of our guests feel like we were home. If you're looking for an amazingly kind man who knows how to crack a joke and somehow keep the seriousness of the ceremony all while guiding you through everything to marry you, pick Mitch.

We eloped with Mitch

We wanted a really small elopement type ceremony and Mitch delivered more than we could have ever imagined. He turned our tiny little thing into something amazing just by his words. We laughed and cried the entire time. It was absolutely perfect and exactly what we wanted. Thank you Mitch for providing the most unforgettable moment in our lives.

We love Mitch

I first met Minister Mitch at my friend's wedding, where he was their officiant. I knew from then that I needed to contact him when my day came. We never met Minister Mitch in person but did have two lengthy Skype sessions with him. He got to know us and what we were looking for and designed the perfect ceremony. A mix between sentimental and humorous. We had several guests come up to us afterwards and say it was the best ceremony they've ever been to. Thank you for making the most important moment of our lives so special and memorable!

We just knew...

From the first day we met Mitch at Starbucks, and spent time talking about our lives together, he was able to paint the picture of our wedding day. There was a particular reading we had in mind, and it was when Mitch independently chose this reading for our ceremony that we know we were in the right hands. As we sat in silence listening to these beautiful words, we got a little emotional, and I think we were both able to picture the big day that we would become husband and wife The big day was bright and sunshine filled, and Mitch arrived knowing exactly what to do to calm our nerves and keep us at peace, having not seen each other before the walk down the aisle. He made everyone laugh and cry at just the right moments, and even offered a hug when it was needed. After the ceremony was done, we had several engaged friends ask how we had found him and would be so happy to see him again at their own weddings.

Our cocktail hour was full of compliments from our ceremony - very humble man. Thank goodness he made me laugh otherwise I might of cried throughout the ceremony. He made it very personable and enjoyable - it was a fun ceremony to sit through as a guest. Very unique and loving.

Amazing

Mitch was by far the most amazing part of our day. Mitch doesn't just marry you, he becomes your friend. He made our ceremony one of the most memorable ceremonies for my guests. He can do a traditional ceremony hat will last up to an hour and a 1/2 or a simple to the point beautiful ceremony that will last 20 minutes. He is an all around great guy whom I know I will keep in touch with. The was nothing better to me than knowing I will know the man who married my husband and I for the rest of our lives.
