Experienced Pastor Who Has the Couple's Interests in Mind
Pastor Carlos was an excellent officiant for our wedding. He is experienced, very kind and really makes your wedding experience a priority.
We found out about Pastor Carlos through our venue. He has been marrying couples there for a few years now. It was helpful because he was able to give suggestions on how to set up the ceremony. For example, the ceremony site had a waterfall behind us. He knew to suggest that the staff set up the chairs a little further back so that there would be enough room for the wedding party.
Well not only does he know the venue, his customization of the ceremony also shows his experience. He gave us different readings, Bible passages, poems, ceremonies such as tea ceremony, candle ceremony to choose from. You can make your ceremony as secular or religious as you want. He's a pastor, so he'll still favor putting God into your wedding. However, he is in no way pushy. He really makes it up to however you want.
Our whole experience was very smooth. First we set up a time to meet with him in his beautiful home. It was nice out so we sat on his porch. At the initial meeting, he talked about the process and what he does. Then at about the halfway point from the time we booked him to our wedding date, he gave us the readings and passages to choose from. At about 20 days prior to the wedding, we set up a phone call to go over the whole ceremony that he customized. We also were able to tell him what passages we've chosen.
Right before the ceremony, he introduced himself to the wedding party and our parents. He was very good at communicating what was going to happen. During the whole experience, he was so kind and really wanted to minimize our stress.
So yes my wife and I would definitely recommend Pastor Carlos for your wedding 100%!

Amazing Officiant & Person!
Pastor Carlos is an incredible officiant, and an even more incredible human being! He is so professional, organized, compassionate, and really funny too! We were so blessed he was available for our wedding day. He guided us every step of the way, provided us with clear directions and options, and made us feel at peace with the entire process. We're procrastinators, and he was so patient with us and the timelines.
We also did our pre-martial counseling with him, and it brought my husband and I so much closer. It was such a powerful experience! Pastor Carlos was so thoughtful, generous with his time, and nurturing. I can't recommend pre-martial counseling with him enough. In fact, we've been telling all our engaged friends it is a complete must. Because of the session we had with Pastor Carlos, my husband and I have the tools and knowledge to get through all of life's happenings.
On our wedding day, I was at peace knowing that Pastor Carlos would be standing before us, guiding us. He was so reassuring, and made the experience so special and beautiful. We absolutely think of him as a life-long friend and mentor.
Thank you Pastor Carlos!Sent on 10/10/2019

Pastor Carlos Sales is one of our favorite officiants to work with. He is always willing to work with our videography team and has no problem being mic'd up. He is easy-going and he makes couples feel comfortable. We love the sincerity, loving and kindness in his voice. You can really feel his warm personality when you are in his presence. He's definitely among the best in San Diego and we HIGHLY recommend him. This was a wedding we worked together on: https://vimeo.com/60773746

Pastor Carlos provided a truly beautiful ceremony for a recent wedding I worked with him on. He was hands on with the bride and groom tailoring the ceremony to fit both their religious and personal needs. He is flexible in what he creates. He is also very personable, lighthearted, and happy as he officiates the wedding. Some officiants tend to be overly serious, but Pastor Carlos is light when needed. I am happy to recommend him to future couples!
