    Our perfect day!

    Nina provided amazing service and support through the entire experience. From our initial call I immediately knew she was the officiant for us. She understood everything we wanted for our ceremony and more. Nina always made herself available whenever we needed and held our hand through every aspect. Her service was absolutely beautiful and all of our guests even commented on how perfect the ceremony was. We couldn't be happier with our perfect day and are so grateful to Nina for ensuring that all of our dreams for our special day were met. We are so grateful that we found her and for the absolutely wonderful job she did at our ceremony.

    Saint Jude Ministries's reply:

    Dear Amy and Jason, thank you so much for your extremely kind words. Getting to know you both and being part of your special day was my absolute honor! Wishing you many blessings during these special times in your lives ❤️
    Love, Rev. Nina

    Speechless

    You know Rev Michael Calderin nailed it when EVERYONE at our wedding asked for his contact info! Words can’t express how happy we are to have found him. When we spoke to him for the first time via telephone, we knew he was the PERFECT person to marry us. He was always so professional, thoughtful and caring during the whole process. Michael’s words during the ceremony were simply beautiful, he had us all smiling, and also in happy tears. Michael also spoke in Spanish to ensure some of our guests could also participate. He honestly was the perfect balance. If you’re looking for a Reverend for your wedding please do not hesitate to book him. He will be a part of our lives forever and so happy once again to have worked with him!

    Thanks so much Claudia and Gustavo! I really enjoyed everything from the moment we first met to pronouncing you as husband and wife at your “surprise” wedding! I look forward to staying in touch with you. Love, Rev. Michael

    Absolute Must Have!!

    Reverend Michael is absolutely amazing. Our wedding took place in Dania Beach, FL and we are from upstate NY. We met with Reverend Michael via Zoom multiple times for premarital counseling and going over details of the ceremony. He was available by phone and text if we had any questions, he helped us obtain the marriage license, he submitted the completed license. He had the best sense of humor, and he knows how to feed off the bride and groom as well as the audience. The ceremony was beautiful, and we got tons of compliments on things he said. We only met with him a few times and he spoke like we had known him our entire lives. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else but Reverend Michael. He’s just the absolute best for anyone looking to hire a wedding officiant.

    Saint Jude Ministries's reply:

    Thanks so much Mike and Mary! I’m so happy we met and it’s been wonderful getting to know you both. I know we will be lifelong friends! Love, Rev. Michael
