We met Mike on the day of the ceremony for the first time, but it felt like we knew him for ever.  He made this very emotional day, a day to remember as heavenly as possible.  The journey was exactly as we had it imagined in our mind, without even discussing it with him.

Thank you, Mike!  Shida S.

Hi Mike!  We just returned from our honeymoon and would like to thank you for officiating our ceremony.  It was beautiful, honest, and simple and I couldn't have asked for a better day!  Vicky B.

Mike officiated at our wedding last week.  He was really helpful and gave us options on what kind of vows we would like to say to each other.  He's personable and from the conversations we had with him before the wedding it was clear that he knows his stuff.  I would highly recommend him to anybody wanting to make their day extra special.  Ours was amazing and more fun than we ever imagined.

Mike Watson performed our wedding last July at Old St. Hilary's Church in Tiburon.  He did a wonderful job officiating!  He made us feel comfortable, creating the framework for our ceremony, letting us express our individuality within our ceremony.  Laura

Mike,   Thank you once again for the beautiful ceremony you delivered on our big day.  We couldn't have been happier.  Aaron & Jessica D

Mike performed our wedding ceremony at The Fairmont in San Francisco.  It was a destination wedding for us.  Mike and Oceanic West made the planning of the ceremony very easy.  We spoke on the phone and I immediately felt he was the right person.  He helped me with ideas and he responded to all of my emails in a timely manner.  When it came time for the big weekend, he was very helpful at the rehearsal.  His patience and positive demeanor helped ease my stress.  The real ceremony went off without a hitch.  He spoke well and loud and provided the light-hearted mood to loosen up my groom and me!!  Lindsey L.

Everything went perfect.  Mike was spot on, very professional and friendly.  Jon 

Elopements are fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants affairs, and opting to run-off just a few days before Xmas added a layer of complexity.  That, however, was no problem for Mike & Natalie.  They met us in Morro Bay, helped us select a suitably perfect location, performed a moving and simple ceremony and got our married life off to joyous start.  Added bonus, while Mike read us our vows, Natalie captured the event.  Her photos turned out great, they posted them quickly and we were able to share our surprise move with our families in no time.  I recommend these two unreservedly.  Kevin L.

Mike just married us two days ago... he was the best!  We had a simple ceremony at sunset in our home. I found Mike through Thumbtack where we got many responses.  We had a couple communications and when Mike said he'd be happy to meet with us first, that really impressed me!  He emailed me sample wedding vows etc., then he came by our place where discussed what we liked, etc... all before we officially hired him! 
He made us feel so comfortable and relaxed we knew we had the person for us.  Our wedding was just what we wanted, simple and sweet.  Mike was so patient as traffic delayed a few very important guests but he didn't mind a bit. He spoke our marriage vows beautifully at the perfect pace and volume so all could hear.  All in all it couldn't have gone any better.  Thank you again. Mike! Nanette J.
