Welcome to the home of 5-Star Reviews (see them , below.) And congratulations on your love, commitment, and decision to take the next step on your life journey together.
I truly enjoy working as an Officiant - it is an honor and a privilege. I take each ceremony one-by-one to insure quality, originality, and delight on your special day. Each wedding, handfasting, elopement, or re-commitment stands as a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the enduring power of love.
Thank You for considering us -- we are "The Cure for a Boring Wedding!"
-- Dr. Mike. Professional Wedding Officiant, Ordained Minister, Doctor of Divinity (H)
"5 STARS! My husband and I can not say enough amazing things about Dr. Mike!!
From start to finish he was prompt to respond to messages. But it didn't stop there, he was willing to drive two hours to a different state to marry us!
When we had our video call you could just tell he knew what he was doing. He is so kind, and attentive to make sure he got every detail that we wanted and had amazing suggestions as well!
Dr. Mike definitely knows how to entertain a crowd and better yet he knows how to read the crowd! Our families haven't stopped raving about our ceremony and we owe it all to Cherished Memory Weddings! If you are looking for an officiant, you would be a fool to go with anyone else.
Thanks again Dr. Mike" -- The Hogues.

"5 STARS. Dr. Mike really came through for us with short notice and some bumps in the road. We ended up having our marriage license filed just in time but Mike was ready with a few backup options to help us keep our quickly approaching ceremony date without fudging the paperwork. I should have asked him to come to rehearsal, but he did a fantastic job even without rehearsing. Stuck to our ceremony requests and rolled with a couple hiccups made by a very overwhelmed bride (me). Thank you so much Dr. Mike!!" -- Lauren & Don

"We had about a month to plan our wedding and found Cherished Memories about two weeks prior. They were quick to respond to emails, and set up a Zoom meeting to talk. They were thorough with questions and expectations and brought really good ideas.
When we received the draft I cried and knew it was perfect and fit us.
The day of, Dr. Mike showed up on time and ready to go. He endured the rain, but maintained an upbeat attitude and had us and our guest laughing. I can't say thank you enough for such an amazing day. Five Stars!" -- Leann C.
"If you are looking for charismatic, hilarious, yet very professional officiant, Dr. Mike is a perfect choice! Five Stars!
From our first Zoom meeting, Dr. Mike made us feel comfortable and guided us through the process with tips and tricks -- and a few jokes. We immediately connected with him and could tell he was open minded and hilarious, while still maintaining professionalism.
Dr. Mike is the kind of person that can wear many hats to fit any occasion. Many of our guests at our wedding commented how it was short and sweet and he made everyone feel comfortable during the ceremony. No weird awkward silences!
You can tell he loves love -- and will make sure anyone has the perfect ceremony! He even thought of all the small details to remind us of so we didn’t make complete fools of ourselves! Dr. Mike is aware of little details that make a big difference like 'ninja sliding' out of the background so we can have nice photos of just us two!
Dr. Mike was an absolute delight and we are so glad we went with Cherished Memory Weddings for our big day." -- Stephanie R.

A wedding shouldn't be boring and dull, it should represent two unique individuals that are uniting friends and family together, and Dr. Mike allowed us to make that possible.
