We were so lucky to have found jack!

We feel so wonderfully blessed and lucky to have found Jack! From the very beginning during our initial consultation, he is very personable and really takes a genuine interest in getting to know you as a couple. His instructions were very clear. We only had one zoom consultation, but any questions we had he responded really quickly via email. His work speaks for itself and so many of our guests came up to us and could not stop complimenting us on HOW GORGEOUS our wedding ceremony was and it couldn't have been without Jack. We are still in awe on how smoothly his bilingual script flows. I can cry as I write this review because I am thinking back on how beautiful the billingual ceremony was. He offers many different additional special ceremonies such as the sand ceremony, lazo ceremony, and arras (to name a few). He was so easy to work with and was extremely well prepared and professional! He was on time, brought laminated copies with scriptures for our family members to read in extra large print (my mom didn't even need to wear her glasses!), it was such a hot day that his iPad over heated but was well prepared with the paper script to switch over to!, and he knows the personalized script very well. He is also super flexible in terms of what kind of ceremony you want! You can have him mention God or not, all English, all Spanish or bilingual! He tailors it to want and need! I wish i had more stars to give him. He is simply amazing and I cannot believe we found him! We HIGHLY recommend him for your wedding today! YOU NEED JACK!

Best minister we could have asked for

Jack did an amazing job helping us through our bilingual wedding ceremony. He helped guide us through a script for both our English and Spanish speaking guests so everyone was included. He was very flexible and helpful even as our plans changed due to the pandemic. We would highly recommend his services!

Best Decision!

I want to start off by saying that hiring Jack for our wedding was the best decision! He really helped make our wedding perfect! I wouldn’t change a thing and I’m so happy we went with him! Since the first meeting he was really nice and very professional! And also helped customize the ceremony to us! Jack also speaks Spanish which was awesome and important to us, as we wanted the ceremony in both English and Spanish. The transition of the two languages was really smooth and everyone appreciated that! I really can’t express this enough how happy we are to have had him officiate the wedding! Seriously, you would be so happy with his service! He truly makes it feel as though he’s not just doing his job but also as if he’s a friend who cares about your vision and wants to make it perfect for you as well! We also decided last minute to do a rehearsal and we are so glad we did. This really helped everyone to feel comfortable and less nervous for the actual day. On the day of the wedding, Jack really executed everything perfectly and even better then expected. Point is, he’s awesome! Don’t think much about it and just have him officiate your wedding because you won’t regret it! Thank you so much Jack! You’re awesome!
