About Mike

“A wedding is one of the most sacred and meaningful experiences of life, and it should be approached with caring and thoughtfulness. I believe that a wedding belongs to the couple, and is theirs to shape and create as they choose. I will do everything I can to help them make it their very own."

Michael G. Ireland holds a Master of Divinity degree from Andover Newton Theological School, a joint United Church of Christ (Congregational) and American Baptist seminary. He has pastored churches in New Hampshire, Kansas, and New York. He was ordained as an American Baptist in 1960, and in 1969 he was granted ministerial standing in the United Church of Christ as well.  From 1980 to 2004, he served as adjunct Minister of Marriage at Community Congregational Church, Tiburon, California. He and his wife, Karen, now live in Groveland, California.

"Each wedding is unique, special and beautiful. I am honored to have been involved in so many of them, and joyfully look forward to sharing in many more. I always come away blessed.”
