Some of our Reviews:
5.0 – From Nikita - Men In Black officiants were absolutely the right choice for our wedding. We had an intimate affair at our beach house and they made our ceremony and evening perfect. They helped us make a custom script for our ceremony and added a surprise which made it all the more perfect. We have already asked them to do our big family ceremony next year. So as you can see they can provide their services for all wedding big and small, and as unconventional as they come. So I thank you Kenneth and Michael for making our evening so amazing. We had a blast! We'll see you again next year!
5.0 – From Michael - The Men In Black where amazing! We had at least 5 conference calls reviewing my ceremony, and the rehearsal. They helped edit my ceremony which was one of the more elaborate ones combining a same sex wedding with early Christian and Eastern Orthodox traditions. It all turned out amazing and right around an hour with the choir and bag pipes! They were very patient, and helped do a lot of editing of the ceremony and script. They also did a great job with the incense and holy water it was really amazing! They also looked great too!
5.0 – From Nancy - Men In Black Wedding Officiants were absolutely wonderful. They responded to all our emails within 24 hours and answered any questions or concerns we had. We were nervous about the ceremony being too long, but it was perfect. Rev Ken and Rev Michael were professional, kind hearted and funny at times when it was needed. They made us as well as our guests feel comfortable. We received numerous compliments about the ceremony. We highly recommend them for your ceremony!
5.0 – From Beth - I married the love of my life. It was in the middle of a threatening Hurricane to the south and a Nor’easter that had settled over the region. Our venue had canceled on us and what we had organized in 18 months, had to be re-planned in three days. There were a few key vendors who stood by us day and night to help us pull our special day back together in those few days (and keep us sane). Michael and Kenneth of Men in Black Wedding Officiants were part of those key folks. From day one, Men in Black were very responsive to any and all questions we had, either by email or phone. We received several extra emails from the beginning with helpful hints, ideas and links for planning the entire wedding, not just our ceremony. They remained calm and reassuring to us in the eye of the storm. While there wasn’t any fire involved that weekend, I do dare say they walked through fire for us, as they had a ceremony in Cape May at 11am on our wedding day. After that ceremony, they proceeded to take a treacherous Ferry ride across the Delaware Bay and navigated around the scores of road closures (due to flooding) to make our 5pm ceremony in time. Michael and Ken are genuine and good; professional and fun. Our ceremony was beautiful and there was not a dry eye in the place! They did a phenomenal job and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone! I will even go as far to say, because of our experience with them planning our wedding, they have become our friends. Thank you, Michael and Ken!! ~Beth and Scott, October 3, 2015
5.0 – From Richard - Men in Black! We had such a great time with Ken & Michael. They delivered a spectacular ceremony that we will remember forever, and it is fair to say they had the audience in laughter and some tears. They are great people who relaxed us when we had nerves. They brought humor, spirituality and an excellent after service. Their help in the planning process was amazing, offering expert guidance along the way and keeping us in the know, especially since we were out of country. The offer a flexible approach and they know the little touches matter and this is what makes them exceptional! We will always remember our very special ceremony thanks to Michael and Ken. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone! A huge thank you to the Men in Black.
5.0 – From Private User - The Men in Black executed the most beautiful and heartwarming ceremony for us. All guests at our wedding said it was the best ceremony they've ever witnessed! The Men in Black will cater to exactly what you want - serious, funny, lighthearted, long, short, religious, nonreligious. They made us so calm, were prompt to respond, and so unbelievably trustworthy. I am not exaggerating when I say they will do whatever you want/need and even offer so much help in planning your ceremony and most importantly, making it personalized. We would work with them all over again. Ken and Michael we cannot thank you enough! 5.0 – From Lisa - The Men In Black were phenomenal! Although we didn't meet them until moments prior to them marrying us, they were responsive to our requests, questions and e-mails and phone calls from the start. I never had to wait more than 2 minutes for a reply back from them when we were in the planning stages of the wedding. My husband proposed to me on July 20, 2015 and we were married on August 28, 2015. Rev. Michael and Rev. Ken made this short time frame work perfectly for all of us. They sent us great information, including sample vows and wrote a beautiful wedding script for us. Their charming and warm personalities made us feel like we'd known them for years. They added in a few fun and light-hearted quips into our ceremony which made everyone in attendance laugh and brought even more joy to our already blissfully happy day. Reverend Michael and Reverend Ken are very special people and I would recommend them to anyone who's interested in having top-notch officiants perform a marriage (or any other) ceremony. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make our wedding day memorable and PERFECT! 5.0 – From Patrick - The MIB were great! We got married in Bethany at sunrise and they got up early to make our day so special. They were professional and funny and very helpful. Highly recommend! 5.0 – From Donna - On August 9, 2015, my fiancé and I were blessed with not only the perfect, beautiful beach wedding day, but also a beautifully, personalized wedding program fashioned by the Men in Black. For an entire year prior to our ceremony from our contracting their services, their communication was top notch and they made us feel very comfortable. With their help, we were able to write our own vows, and having never met them prior to our wedding day, they were able to put us at ease and presided over our ceremony just perfectly. They were present in the words they were speaking, they made us feel special, and even added a flare of timely humor as well which lightened the mood and entertained all of our guests. Our friends and family were very impressed with the wedding and said that it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever had the pleasure of hearing. The Men in Black even stayed after for a few snacks and mingled with our guests afterwards and they fit right into our crowd of loved ones. We thank you so much, from the bottom of our hearts . . . with love, Steven and Donna Dickerson 5.0 – From Meihua - Men In Black achieved the pinnacle of our expectations! As officiants for our winter wedding ceremony, we joined on the beach and never looked back. Michael and Kenneth were flawless and relaxed, gave great advice, and assisted in coordinating the event. Flexible and reasonably priced, I warmly recommend Men in Black for anyone in search of talented, experienced, confident officiants. Great sense of humor as well! - Wedding: 12/21/2015
