Making a commitment to you, Officiant Michael Feehley, OC, will help you make your day a day to remember. As a member of the American Council of Wedding Officiants I am a retired ordained minister.

You choose the place — one of the private estates or beaches of the Eastern Shore, a historic inn or a quaint bed and breakfast tucked in a valley, your grandparents farm, or the school where you met. You may have chosen to be wed aboard a private yacht or ferry boat. Wherever you choose I will be there. Decide your date and contact me.

On your day you want romance and happiness. You want to remember the vows you make, the look in each others eyes, the feel of the rings on your fingers and the sound of being pronounced husband and wife just before the first kiss as a newly married couple. I can help these things happen in a stress-free manner.


“Thank you for being a part of our wedding.  Everyone said they loved the ceremony and your words and how you were able to inject just the right touch of humor into the ceremony.  From the first time she talked to you on the phone, Angela knew you were the right “fit” for us.  You took the time to talk to us, learn about what was important to us as well as some of our important memories with our parents and were able to work those into the ceremony.   Your calm demeanor made sure that neither of us were nervous and we were able to actually enjoy the ceremony.  The photos show a lot of laughter and that’s what we’ll remember most; you gave us exactly what we were looking for and kept things serious but light.  We can’t thank you enough.”

Mike and Angela

“Working with Michael was a joy. From the start, he was very understanding about what we each wanted for our wedding ceremony, especially regarding our interfaith families. We knew we wanted a brief ceremony that not only respected everyone in attendance but also was personal and special to us. Michael took the time to get to know us as a couple as well as guided us throughout the entire process, making us feel comfortable and confident. Our ceremony was everything we wanted it to be – as well as perfectly brief without feeling rushed – and we are still having guests comment on how touching his words were. We feel truly honored to have been married by Reverend Feehley and are so happy that we chose him to be our officiant!”

Mr. & Mrs. Dogan

“I cannot thank you enough for all of your help with our big day. It was absolutely perfect. I have now had time to look at hundreds of pictures and the wedding video and I am able to reflect on that day with complete joy and satisfaction. It meant so much to me that you were always willing to meet up and chat throughout the planning process. You have such a calming presence and that really came in handy since I had my nervous moments. The ceremony was so perfectly “us”. Your words really impacted a number of our wedding guests and we’ve heard lots of great feedback from friends and family. We are so lucky to have stumbled upon your website because I cannot imagine our wedding day with anyone else standing by our side”

Hannah and Andy

“Andy and I had the chance to reflect back on our wedding ceremony day and we feel so incredibly blessed that we met you and that you agreed to marry us.  Although we were civilly married last December—we think of our official union as the day that we brought God into our ceremony.  Your sermon was beautiful and I know we had many guests very impressed with how they could relate to you and your wishes for us. We THANK YOU so very much from the bottom of our hearts for your blessings for now and the future. We agree that we will always remember what our rings stand for–our promise to one another—our families and God. Best wishes to you always and we also wish you much great health and happiness to you and yours.”

Gloria and Andy
