The Best Officiants Around!! - An Eventective User from DOVER, DE

A week before our wedding on the beach my fiancé (at the time) and I were faced with the possibility of bad weather. We were so upset because of all of the planning and decorations and the dream we had of our wedding was crumbling around us. We couldn't find a venue that wasn't already booked or that was close to a location that included food and hotels for our family. We spoke to The Men in Black Wedding Officiants and they immediately got to work looking for a venue and preparing our ceremony. It was unbelievable! Within 24hours they had found 2 venue locations. One of them we actually fell in love with and got it for a phenomenal deal. Ken didn't waste anytime coordinating, he called and spoke with the manager and setup a meeting for us to see the location and meet the owner. They even rearranged their schedule to accommodate the meeting so we could sit down and go over everything with us to get a game plan since we had less than a week to get everything together. The Men in Black officiated our wedding on 10/28/2018. They kept in contact throughout the whole wedding process, even offering advice about the ceremony table and chair layout, which we found super helpful! Ken and Michael are so great to work with! They will customize your ceremony script to make your day extra special! On the day of the ceremony I had forgot the easel for the "cord of three strands" ritual as well as forgetting to untie the braids before beginning the ceremony. It was the only ritual I wanted and it meant so much to me. I thought it was ruined but Ken and Michael turned without missing a beat and revealed their own cord of three strands that they had actually made for us as a gift. I was moved to tears. The fact that two people who had just met us could care so much about our wedding day. They were determined to make our day special and they made it absolutely unforgettable. They were absolute angels from God! At every step of the way we faced some obstacle and they smiled and had a solution. Thank you so much for everything! We look forward to seeing you at our 5 year vow renewal!

Management Response
It was a great pleasure to work with this couple. Both the bride to be, and the groom to be, were great with communications and responsiveness with us. They had some challenges at the last minute . . . to even have a wedding occur at all. We do what we do best, and that is to take the ordinary and make it the extraordinary . . . and we did make it happen for them beyond their wildest expectations. We appreciate their kind words of respect and appreciation for our efforts, to do the impossible for them within 24 hours. We look forward to celebrating with them in 5 years to Renew their wedding vows. We wish them happiness and love.

The Men In Black Wedding Officials did an amazong job for my friends’ wedding. They have a wonderful way with words and ran the service in such a beautiful and respectful manner. I love that they made everyone comfortable. They made this day very special and positively unforgettable. Thank you guys. I would definitely recommend their services...hands down!

Evan R. Moody - An Eventective User from Newark

I thought the service was just perfect for the two people who were married on Saturday. The Men In Black Wedding Officiants were prompt and yet kept everything loose and put everyone at ease in their delivery. They put the two individuals comfortable and their delivery of the vows made everyone think of their own marriage vows. For my wife and I that was 58 years ago. I enjoyed the Men In Black wedding service greatly. I'm happy we attended this wedding!

Wedding in Philly - An Eventective User from Philadelphia

We had Michael and Ken officiate at my daughter’s 8/31/18 wedding in Philadelphia. This was an out-of-state wedding and there were numerous details to take care of. Ken was so helpful and super quick to respond to questions and provide feedback on the wedding script. They provided helpful suggestions for wedding readings and music selections. It greatly simplified what could have been an overwhelming process. Michael and Ken also provided invaluable advice during the rehearsal, putting my daughter and future son-in-law at ease. The ceremony was beautiful, they crafted such a personal, specifically designed one for them. They interwove some humorous elements that helped them to relax and enjoy the ceremony. They were so friendly and engaging, our guests told us repeatedly how much they enjoyed the ceremony and speaking to them at the reception. Selecting Michael and Ken was the smartest thing I did during the wedding planning process.

Absolutely Fantastic! - An Eventective User from Philadelphia, PA

The Men In Black Wedding Officiants were an absolute pleasure to work with! Michael and Ken officiated our wedding on 7/7/2018 and the ceremony was beautiful, emotional, and heartfelt. So many of our guests spoke with us (and with Michael and Ken!) at the reception and told us that it was simply one of the most touching ceremonies they had ever had the privilege of witnessing. Michael and Ken are easy to work with and very patient, and they care deeply about helping you create your perfect wedding ceremony. Their suggestions and recommendations from past experiences add such a personalized feel. We simply cannot recommend the Men In Black Wedding Officiants more highly. Michael and Ken, thank you for helping us create the memory of a lifetime! Collin & Ainsley

Bride - An Eventective User from Philadelphia

My fiance and I were faced with the challenge of moving our wedding date up to accomodate his very ill parents. It was super important for his parents to be there for our wedding day, but their health was failing......BOTH of them at the same time. We decided to forego the traditional "big family wedding" and opted for an intimate, immediate "family only" ceremony in the matter of weeks. Planning a wedding is stressful enough, but having to put EVERYTHING together in a few weeks is almost impossible. I was looking for a wedding officiant who was flexible, organized, competent and most of all, had a warm and welcoming sense of humor. The Men In Black exceeded all of those expectations beyond our wildest imagination. They were responsive from the first inquiry, and from there, it was flawless.......Absolutely SUPER ORGANIZED......NO MATTER WHAT DENOMINATION OR FAITH YOU PRACTICE, MEN IN BLACK CAN AND WILL ACCOMODATE YOU. I was so hesitatant about shying away from the "the traditional church wedding", but time was not on our side. The MEN IN BLACK were a God sent.....I cannot thank them enough for their professional service, quality of ceremony and amazing communication throughout. If you are looking for an officiant, please.....LOOK NO MORE.....THE MEN IN BLACK ARE EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. Congrats on your big day!!!! You have enough to worry about.....Let the Men In Black do what they do best!!!!!!

Thrilled! - An Eventective User from CHESTER, MD

MIB were out of this world! Our wedding would not have been the same without them, we’re so glad we chose them to officiate our wedding. They felt more like guests we had known for some time rather than wedding vendors. Everyone loved them and commented on how great they were. Not only were they professional and prepared to a “T” but they were entertaining as well. Set your wedding apart and choose MIB to officiate your wedding!

Shawna - An Eventective User from PA

We would like to thank the Men In Black wedding officiants. They officiated our wedding on 05/19/2018. They did a perfect job even when we had to switch the ceremony to Plan B because of the rain. They both keep in contact through out the whole wedding planning process, even offering advice about planning, which we found super helpful! Ken and Michael are great to work with and will customize your ceremony script to make your day extra special! So glad we went with them. Thank you for being apart of our day and making it that much more special.

Amazing! - An Eventective User from BALTIMORE, MD

Words cannot express the gratitude I have for the Men in Black. My wife and I had a destination wedding planned. A month before the wedding we were given devastating news that my mother in law had been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. We had to cancel our wedding and focus on her health. After starting treatments we were advised to get married ASAP from her doctors because of the uncertainty of her health. We were able to schedule around her chemotherapy 2 months out. Now we had re-plan everything in that short period of time. I reached out to many wedding officiants trying to find someone who was reasonably priced and had great reviews. After talking to MIB and they heard our situation there was no doubt that we were going to use them. These men went completely out of their way to help us. They gave us so much useful information and checklist to help plan everything. Whenever we had questions they answered quickly. On our wedding day 1/6/18 they drove 3+ hours through a snow blizzard to our wedding and they did not disappoint. The delivered a beautiful message during our ceremony. They were professional but at the same time they said appropriate jokes along the way. During the reception they were very friendly and talked with many of guests. Everyone loved them. I can’t say enough positive things about them. If you are in need of a wedding officiant MIB are the way to go.

Wedding - An Eventective User from Fredericksburg, VA

Men in Black Wedding Officiants were absolutely awesome for the Dehlbom/Phillips Wedding on 19 November. I was the Matron of Honor and thoroughly enjoyed them. Would recommend them for any event.

Mrs. Sharon Keller - An Eventective User from Annandale, VA

My son and his beautiful bride were married this weekend in Lewes, De and I could not believe how fortunate they were to find the MIBWO - Bishop Michael and Deacon Ken were so professional yet friendly, always thinking of what is best for the couple, an eye for photos, bringing humor and faith so that all were touched by the ceremony. If you need an officiant - they are the first people I would call!! And they are a veritable fount of information on any aspect of the ceremony as well as the reception, etc. - just wonderful!

Frank Puccio - An Eventective User from Cape May, NJ

We found Men In Black to be easy to work with, highly responsible, and provided us with ample information and guidance in preparation for our wedding. The ceremony was exactly as we planned it and they provided an excellent balance of professionalism, spirituality, and humor. We would highly recommend Men In Black for your wedding ceremony.

Brittany Coleman - An Eventective User from Indian River Marina, DE

Ken & Michael were great! They were very helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process. They send lots of helpful information. They were in touch the day before the wedding to check in and go over last minute details. They also made sure I was ok before walking down the aisle. The ceremony was wonderful, and Michael made it special while adding humor to get everyone laughing. Our guests loved them both! I would definitely recommend if you want a memorable wedding ceremony.

So grateful! - An Eventective User from Ocean City, MD

When tragedy hit our family and our “perfect” destination wedding was no longer possible, the Men in Black brought joy and hope into a not so perfect situation. Within hours, they agreed to marry us and provided the most incredible ceremony I could have ever hoped for. They were sensitive to our loss of loved ones as well as encouraging and excited for our new beginning. They even found a way for our two year old to feel part of the ceremony. I am forever grateful that Michael and Ken provided us a beautiful “not-so planned-for” but perfect beginning to our marriage in the midst of some really rough times. Steve and Michelle, June 21, 2017

Tubbs / Estoye - An Eventective User from Franklin, MI

Indeed, getting married can be both a happy and stressful event, but thanks to the Men In Black Wedding Officiants (MIBWO), marriage was all happy! We had reached out initially to MIBWO through online search, and immediately they got back to us. What was particularly impressive was that we made initial contact roughly 3 months before the wedding, and they were very flexible in fitting us into their schedule easily and without rush. MIBWO gave us the choice ahead of time whether we agreed to receive a plethora of email advice on wedding vendor choices, etiquette, things to remember, etc.; and we are glad we said yes because the info helped. We no longer needed to hire a separate wedding planner! Both Bishop Michael and Deacon Ken were fun to meet in our first face-to-face while, at the same time, addressed questions about submitting the marriage license form. Sure, both held all the theological credentials, yet they made us feel more comfortable with their earthliness and good humor. This humor even carried over to the actual wedding ceremony in which they added some unexpected tongue-in-cheek ad-lib to our wedding script. Everyone loved it! We are sorry that MIBWO could not join our reception as they were in high demand that day to officiate other weddings, but we’ll invite them to the next one….LOL! -Jay & Rick

THANK YOU! - An Eventective User from West Chester, PA

Ken and Michael were fantastic. We were planning our wedding remotely which was stressful because we could not meet our officiants in person before the event. Ken and Michael made this process easier by being extremely responsive and understanding. They tailored the ceremony to our exact wishes, added some humor and helped make our day perfect. Everyone loved our ceremony and the MIBWO!

Thank you for our beautiful wedding ceremony! - An Eventective User from New York, NY

Ken and Michael were amazing! I was planning the whole wedding in only 3 month so I think I've found Men in Black only 2 month before our date. They were extremely helpful and patient with our responses and helped to create a very special and beautiful ceremony. They've made us feel as comfortable as we could be on our wedding day, even though the groom was almost an hour late and we didn't rehearse anything. We are extremely happy with how nice everything turned out, thanks to the Men in Black! They've also joined us at the reception dinner and our guests were very pleased to spend some time and talk to them. We highly recommend Men in Black, these guys are true professionals and are such a pleasure to work with! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Elopement - An Eventective User from Lewes, DE

We decided to elope, and Ken and Michael performed a beautiful ceremony in Lewes DE. From the moment we contacted them we felt that they understood exactly what we wanted on this special day. They responded quickly to all our questions and offered many helpful suggestions. Although our wedding was very simple, they brought to it an elegance and a depth that made it truly a sacrament. Clearly, their experience, professionalism and humor served to put us at ease, yet embraced the commitment we were making to one another. Because we were eloping, they provided the necessary witnesses, and a friend of theirs even took wonderful photographs of the occasion! We will be forever grateful to MIBWO. Linda and Carl

Amazing, amazing people - An Eventective User from Worsell Manor

I was married this past weekend by Michael and Ken and I can't believe I was lucky enough to find these two amazing souls. I first met them at my rehersal dinner where their infectious personalities instantly made me feel like I had known them for years and years. Both of them instantly clicked with my entire Family and husband. We talked the whole ride home about how amazing they were. The actual wedding ceremony could not have been more perfect. Ken and Michael have a way of making couples feel so at ease! They rocked our ceremony and made it sweet, yet humorous. They were able to read my husband and I like a book and they knew exactly how to make our ceremony perfect for us. I would recommend Ken and Michael a thousand times with the highest regard. My family and I could never thank them enough for their dedication to us, attention to detail, and most of all their amazing personalities. Truly wonderful people who are great at what they do.

Perfect - An Eventective User from Oceanview, DE

We were married in October 2016 by the Men in Black Wedding Officiants and I can say without hesitation that our ceremony was amazing thanks to Michael and Ken's expertise, personalities, and their visible joy in officiating. Ken and Michael are true professionals yet they are also extraordinarily fun! Our ceremony was filled with just the right blend of tradition, attention, humor, and romance. Upon meeting Ken and Michael for the first time we knew they were the right fit for us and for our ceremony. So many of our family members and guests remarked on how much they loved Michael and Ken. They not only immersed themselves in our ceremony but they immersed themselves into our reception and family. They celebrated right along with us by taking selfies, dancing, eating, and drinking. They made our day extra special. We would recommend Men in Black Wedding Officiants to anyone needing an officiant. They are truly "the best". Louise and Todd Forney

The best Officiants ever!! - An Eventective User from Dover, DE

My husband Jason and I highly recommend the Men in Black. Reverend Ken and Reverend Michael did such an amazing job! Our ceremony was customized to match our personalities. The Men in Black stayed in contact with us throughout the entire planning process, sending us emails with very useful information that made our wedding day highly successful. If you are planning to get married, please choose the Men in Black, I promise that you will not regret it!

MIB were so great! - An Eventective User from Elkton, MD

The MIB were extremely professional, and made our day so very special. Our ceremony was able to be personalized to everything that we wanted so it was just right for our personalities. It was serious, yet simple and filled with so much love. We are so happy we found the MIB and we recommend them to anyone getting married and is in need of an officiant. THANK YOU KEN AND MICHAEL, YOU WERE FABULOUS! -Mandee and Hayley O'Dell

THE BEST - An Eventective User from Downingtown, PA

IMPECCABLE. FLAWLESS. PROFESSIONAL. KIND. UNIQUE. TRADITIONAL. AMAZING. There aren't enough words. Their years of experience certainly shine through when customizing your wedding ceremony. We wanted a mixture of a traditional ceremony and a Catholic ceremony to honor our grandparents (we got married at a country club not a church). So finding a balance between the two, plus us saying our own vows, plus us having a little bit of humor to keep it light and happy. Man oh man, I didn't even know it was possible to get all of that into one ceremony! We got so MANY compliments on our ceremony. About how it had just the right balance of everything and was a ceremony our guests would never forget because they were so moved! Men in black was an honor to work with and we couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Incredible wedding officiating! - An Eventective User from Ocean City, MD

The Men in Black officiated our wedding last May. They did an incredible job. They were reverent, professional, well-spoken, inclusive of all the different religions present at our wedding, and provided just the right amount of levity during the ceremony. They were easy to work with and easy to get a hold of. My wife is Catholic and I am not, which made doing a traditional Catholic wedding very difficult. We also wanted to get married on the beach. The Men in Black made all of this possible. Not only did they make it possible, they far exceeded our expectations. We got so many compliments on how well officiated our wedding was that we've now lost count. They did such an incredible job that when my sister got married this year, they also chose to use the men in black to officiate their wedding. Again, they exceeded all expectations. In addition, one of the guests at their wedding recently lost her husband and was having a difficult time at this wedding. During the reception Bishop Carroll and Reverend Warne noticed she was upset, and Bishop Carroll pulled her aside and gave her spiritual guidance. She was doing much better and looking much happier afterwards. They never looked to get credit for this or be recognized. They saw someone in need of their help and never thought twice about helping. Beyond the excellent officiating, it was the little things they did that really made both of these weddings spectacular. We are extremely happy we chose the Men in Black for our wedding. Not only would we recommend them to others, we have made the recommendation several times. Thank you for the great memories Michael and Kenneth!

Mrs. Amy Winiecki - An Eventective User from Catonsville, MD

Rev. Ken and Rev. Michael were great! We had sent emails back and forth and talked on the phone, but once I met them at our rehearsal, I felt like I already knew them. They made our ceremony very special by providing personal touches and were a hit at our reception! I highly recommend them!!
