Mike is a warm, friendly, and experienced officiant. He has done this many times before, and it shows. From our first contact, he was extremely responsive. He met with us in person to make sure that he was the right fit for what we were looking for. He gave us a huge binder of options for the ceremony, which made it so easy to choose how we wanted it to go! On the day of, he made our ceremony incredibly personal and added so many nice touches and funny stories. He had everyone laughing, which is exactly the vibe we were going for. Mike was great every step of the way, and I highly recommend him!

From the moment we met…
I’m not kidding when I say all other JP’s have huge shoes to fill! Michael was exceptional. From the moment we first met him we knew he was “the one”. He was professional, humorous, thoughtful, experienced. He took the time to really listen to our expectations for our ceremony and offered great advice and ideas that truly made our ceremony unique and special. He cares a lot about his clients and even go’s as far as having them fill out a couple questionnaire to get to know each individual. I love how Michael incorporates that into the ceremony leaving an element of surprise and laughter for the bride, groom and the guests. He makes you feel comfortable and helps take the nerves out of the moment. We felt like we had a family member marry us! We even had people come up to us and ask who married us because they wanted them for their own weddings!
Thank you so much Michael for making our day so special! The Pascasio’ s

Look no further
There are a lot of choices out there for officiants. But if you want someone who is down to earth, funny, professional, organized and a pleasure to work with, then go with Mike Backer. My husband and I wanted to find someone that would work with us on creating an individualized ceremony. We wanted a ceremony that would capture who we are as individuals and a couple and would truly reflect our relationship. Mike made crafting our ceremony a breeze. After meeting with us and having us fill out questionnaires, he was able to create a ceremony that spoke to who we are as a couple. Family and friends commented after the ceremony how much they liked the ceremony and how they felt it captured us. I am pleased we went with Mike as our officiant. We would recommend him to any couple looking for a Justice of the Peace for their upcoming nuptials.

Highly Recommend Mike Backer
We were very happy to have Mike officiate our wedding. From the first meeting we had with him, he made us feel very comfortable and made sure we were getting exactly what we wanted every step of the way. He had a tremendous amount of experience at our venue (Butternut Farms Golf Club) and made things very easy on both of our families when we met him there for our rehearsal. Mike also helped us select readings for our ceremony that held meaning for us and were not just time-fillers. His great sense of humor also helped calm any nerves we may have had on our special day. We highly recommend Mike to anyone looking for a Justice of the Peace.
