Great Officiant

Louie was just what we were looking for! We wanted to build our wedding ceremony with both American and Mexican traditions as well as add both Spanish and English so all our guests could feel comfortable. Louie provided us with lots of guidance, advice, and helped us create a very special and personal wedding ceremony just for us. It was beautiful!

Available last minute and saved the day!

Louie was available last minute and saved the day and vibe of our wedding as we really weren't feeling the officiant that was assigned to us originally. He was available and jumped right in to help, as we contacted him about 1 week before the wedding. He gave us exactly what we were looking for, at no extra charge. He listened to our needs and made us feel comfortable the whole way! I love his comical, calming and professional deamor. He realized I did not have vows the day of, took control of the situation and again saved the day. I am so grateful our paths crossed and recommend him %1000!!!
