Personalized Ceremonies

Your wedding is your own. It should be as unique as you are. It should celebrate both you as a couple, and you as individuals. Each of you bring something special to your union. I joyfully work with you to create a custom ceremony text which will help you forever treasure the memory of your wedding ceremony.

If you are looking for a licensed minister to perform your ceremony in south NJ, central NJ, northern NJ, or eastern PA, then you’re in the right place. I’m located in southern NJ but I’m happy to travel anywhere in eastern PA, as well as anywhere in New Jersey and even on the Jersey Shore.

All are welcome

Love is love, and I believe that all loving and consenting couples may tie the knot and begin their lives together as a united, married couple. I am an Ally of every couple who want to be married, and it would be my honor to perform your marriage ceremony.

As a passionate advocate of Marriage Equality, I welcome all couples to be united in this important and beautiful spiritual way. I am LGBTQ+, interfaith, and interrace friendly, and I am happy to customize wedding ceremonies that not only tell your story, but that celebrate your legal right to be married.

“We cannot thank you enough again for your assistance in the planning process and for joining us in matrimony. Though things shifted many times in the process, you helped it move seamlessly and kept us as stress-free as could be given the circumstances.”

My ceremony was my favorite part of my entire wedding day and it is all thanks to Michael Chadwick! I wish that I had a reason to use him again because he was so charismatic, caring, and fun to talk to and he is great at what he does. I will ABSOLUTELY be recommending him to anyone I can. My ceremony in my husband and my eyes could not have been anymore perfect. When he emailed us the ceremony script he wrote we didn’t change a thing, he nailed it the first time around. We sent him bullet points of tv shows we liked, movies we liked, details about our relationship and I was amazed at how beautifully he incorporated everything. He really got to know us as a couple and our ceremony was a perfect representation of us and our love. Thank you Michael for making our wedding day so special and truly a day I will never forget. 10/10 would recommend!!!

“There were plenty of things to stress out about over rainy weather for our garden wedding, but Michael was not one of them. He was amazing. From the beginning, Michael was kind, responsive, and communicative. He was clearly very experienced with weddings because he also offered some excellent advice about planning as well. He sent over the initial draft and it was perfect on the first try. We didn’t change a thing! He incorporated our cultural traditions seamlessly and even put a few LOTR references at our request. Due to scheduling issues, we didn’t do a rehearsal, but Michael didn’t need one! During our actual ceremony, he was insightful, funny, and eloquent. We had so many people coming up to us saying how beautiful our ceremony was. Thank you Michael for make it easy for us! We would recommend Michael to anyone looking for an officiant!”

“Michael was a great officiant. Communication prior to the event was easy and his response time was impeccable. We decided last minute that we were going to elope and gave him a call. He answered, we found a date that worked and he sent over the information and scripts that night. Everything was so easy and stress free. Day of the ceremony, he showed up early, was very kind and helpful, and read the scripts exactly as planned. Easy to talk to, punctual, helpful and informative. Overall great experience and would highly recommend Michael Chadwick.”
