    Highly recommended!

    Father Jason was an amazing officiant for our wedding. Professional, caring, and approachable. We were very happy that he was aware of traditional Filipino Catholic practices and incorporated these elements in our ceremony. He had an excellent homily and made our wedding truly memorable and perfect.

    Truly a Joy

    We are so grateful to Fr. Jason for working with us for almost a year leading up to our wedding and officiating such a beautiful, personalized, and memorable wedding ceremony. In planning our wedding, we knew we wanted to get married outside but have a ceremony that respected my Catholic upbringing. Fr. Jason turned what started out as a stressful experience with our families to the most meaningful wedding ceremony imaginable.

    From the beginning, Fr. Jason helped us feel comfortable, heard, positive, and truly excited about planning our ceremony together. He helped guide us in picking readings, songs, and personal touches to help the ceremony feel like us; it was the perfect blend of sentimental, personalized, and traditional. Fr. Jason cared about getting to know us and met with us a few times in person and additionally over the phone to not just prepare for our ceremony but, more importantly, our marriage. He helped us with marriage license questions, and was fantastic the day of - arriving early and checking in on us that day.

    The biggest endorsement was just how many people complimented us on such a beautiful, meaningful, heartfelt ceremony -- many of the same people that felt unease when hearing we wouldn't be having a Catholic mass. I can't recommend Fr. Jason highly enough and am so grateful for the beautiful memories he helped us create.
