    He made our wedding extra special!

    Michael was such an amazing officiant. Right from the start, he was so thorough and wanted to ensure our ceremony was exactly what we wanted. He ensured he was knowledgeable of our backgrounds and incorporated it into the ceremony to make it extra special. Michael made every step of the ceremony easy and smooth and personal…couldn’t have asked for any one better!!

    Highly recommend

    Would recommend Michael as an officiant to anyone/everyone! He was AMAZING to work with. He made the organization of the ceremony so stress free and was very accommodating. He worked with us through 3 wedding date changes and two location changes. He stuck with us even though the location change required him to travel. He is such a humble person and really makes the ceremony personalized to you as a couple. Many guests said it was one of the most intimate ceremonies they have attended. Thank you Michael for helping make our wedding day so special and memorable!

    I am humbled by your kind words. It was a wonderful experience being part of your beautiful and memorable wedding. A heartfelt thank you for having me as your wedding celebrant.

    Very happy!

    For our wedding in Antigonish, Michael was very accommodating, punctual, encouraging and helpful - especially during a pandemic. From a couple getting married for the first time, Michael was able to help us during the whole process from start to finish. Michael is cheerful, and very positive. We added some custom pieces to our vows and Michael handled them with ease.

    Phenomenal!

    Michael was with us through plan A, B, C and all the way down until the moment we called him with a few hours notice to say let's elope tonight! He got in his car and drove to meet us, even recommended a gorgeous spot. We could not be more pleased with the how the ceremony went. It was personalized to us, and reflected us perfectly. Michael is a pleasure to work with. He made the process so easy amongst the chaos and stress of a COVID wedding. He was available to us for every question or concern. We cannot say enough kind things about him, he truly made the day exactly what it was supposed to be. Thank you, Michael!

    I am humbled by your wonderful review Alyssa. It was a fantastic and uplifting experience. I wish you a most happy and prosperous future.

    Professional and Kind

    Michael delivered us a wonderful ceremony for our small wedding amidst the pandemic. He was very prompt to answer questions, and we both found the ceremony to be very meaningful! He charged a fair price for his services as well. He was very kind and positive too! As lockdowns came and went, and pandemic rules flipped and flopped (changing the ceremony each time) Michael was understanding and patent with us while we considered the pros and cons of postponing (again) or keeping the date with a much smaller crowd (we ended up with four guests in the end). We appreciated that, and his kind words as well. We definitely recommend Michael for your special day!

    Experienced and professional

    Micheal was great to work with. He has done many at liscomb lodge are it shows, he knows the venue better then I did lol. It was nice to work with someone who has so much experience at the venue. He was very well loved by our wedding party as he made everyone confident for our big day at our rehearsal dinner.
    Thanks so much for making our day great

    Wonderful, Sweet, Brief non-religious wedding ceremony

    Michael did a wonderful job with our ceremony, it was short and sweet and allowed us to write our own vows. He is a very kind person with your happiness at his top priority!

    Fantastic JOP

    Right from our first meeting, Michael took the time to get to know us as a couple and put us at ease right away. He gave us a script to work with, was completely accommodating to our edits, and was warm and heartfelt in his delivery on the day of. He was a calming presence to us as an emotional couple throughout the ceremony, and we can’t imagine a better choice for us. We had so many guests mention how genuine the ceremony felt. I would recommend Michael a hundred times over to couples looking for an engaging and approachable JOP.

    He made our day that much better

    Michael truly made this experience amazing. He wrote our ceremony customized to what we were looking for. He was extremely understanding and accommodating when we had to change our dates because of covid. He was very easy to communicate with. It felt as though he had been a life long friend and made our day very special.

    Michael Wilson's reply:

    Thank you so much Erica for such kind words. I am humbled. It was a wonderful experience and such a unique and beautiful venue.
