Best officiant ever!
Pastor Carlos was amazing! He was very organized and easily to communicate with. He had such a great structure that made it super easy to understand the whole flow of the wedding. He answered all my questions and I love the way my wedding went. He went above and beyond to make sure everyone got what they wanted and I really appreciated that! He is the sweetest and most positive person ever ! Thank you Pastor Carlos!Sent on 10/31/2020

Paster Carlos was really good. We have a large kid family that we blended together and having the sand ceremony really made it signify the blending of the kids being one family. It was recommended by paster carlos. He also had so many other recommendations and helped us so much in the process. I highly recommend him!! The only hiccup was he put the wrong county down that we got married so just watch the detials:)).Sent on 10/21/2017

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-forever family pastor
COViD wedding here! We pushed through with keeping our wedding date while maintaining the health and safety of all our guests. Our backyard wedding had all of the PPE bells and whistles. I’ll keep this short and sweet so that it’s read!
1. My now husband and I are Catholic however we decided to have a ceremony outside of a Catholic Church. Pastor Sales was able to uphold our religious faith by providing suggestions for beautiful scripture at our wedding.
2.Communication and Follow up is ALWAYS timely. Pastor Carlos crossed all of my T’s and dotted all of my I’s with a smile.
3. In the midst of the pandemic we were scrambling for ideas on where we could host our canceled winery wedding. Pastor Carlos was quick to provide a a sense of calm and reassurance that he would be willing to commute from San Diego to Orange County for our backyard wedding. Being malleable is very important for a growing business.
4. On the day of our wedding we found out that he had also married my now brother and sister in-law! It was meant to be!
We heart Pastor CarlosSent on 12/09/2020
2Wed4Life.com's reply:Erica & Matt... it was an honor and a blessing to be part of your wedding ceremony. You were easy to work with and I enjoyed getting to know you both. It was a extra special blessing to find out that I married Matt's sister, Jayme to Adam 5-years previously, and that Adam was one of your groom men. It was nice to see them again and your parents. Please stay in touch and I can't wait to see your wedding pictures. Blessings, PC

A dream come true!
Pastor Carlos was an absolute dream to work with! He officiated our small, private wedding ceremony at our parents’ home, and made the process so easy and pleasurable. He was very responsive and flexible with last minute changes, and always did so with a bright, positive light. I 100% recommend him and would be interested in using him for other ceremonies in the future. Thank you Pastor Carlos!Sent on 09/15/2020

Thank You Pastor Carlos!
Pastor Carlos was absolutely amazing! He took the time to get to know us as a couple and customized our ceremony to how we wanted it to be. Of course we had no idea what to expect or what to even consider for a ceremony, but he guided us in the right direction and gave us examples and different selections to pick from. After we had chosen what we wanted in our ceremony, he knew right away how long it would be and rehearsed with us to know and understand how the ceremony would play out, much like a coordinator. The day of, he was so pleasant and warm. We felt like we had known him for a long time. He spent a lot of time with us and never did we feel rushed or like we were just a customer. We felt like he really cared about our ceremony and that he really cares about us as a couple. He even offers premarital counseling. He even guides you how to obtain your marriage license and directs you to other resources you might need. You can tell when he speaks, that he has a lot of experience with public speaking and knows how to keep the attention of the audience. We would recommend Pastor Carlos to anyone and everyone. Thank you Pastor Carlos for being a big part of our special day!Sent on 07/23/2020

My Dream Wedding - Even During COVID ;-)
I have had a lot of challenges over the year, as we all have I’m sure. 2020 has proven to be tough, however, I proceeded with my small wedding and with the help of Pastor Carlos it was everything I could ever dream of, even in this tough time. My husband and I have been together for almost 9 years and just could not postpone our special day again. Pastor Carlos was a saving grace and helped to make our day the most amazing and memorable day I’ve had in my life. The process of choosing our Pastor and wedding message was easy and fun. Thank you so much Pastor Carlos, for everything. I’ll never forget the way I felt during my ceremony on my wedding day. Forever the most special day. You are a wonderful person and a consummate professional. I highly recommend Pastor Carlos’ services. Good luck to all the engaged couples in this trying time. Lean on Pastor Carlos for your special wedding ceremony. You won’t regret it. He truly makes it special and personal.Sent on 12/12/2020

When we were first looking for an officiant for our wedding we had interviewed with two but in the end we chose Pastor Carlos.

Intimate, Personal Ceremony
Pastor Carlos officiated our private ceremony this past November, and treated our intimate elopement with the same consideration and attention to detail that you would expect for a wedding with 200 guests. He is a truly caring person who took the time to get to know us and craft a ceremony and vows that spoke to our values and hopes for our marriage. I am so glad we found him!Sent on 12/04/2019

Look No Further! Pastor Carlos is the BEST!
Pastor Carlos Sales has an undeniably authentic soul & spirit. We found him through other great reviews online, but he exceeded our expectations leading up to our wedding day. Since we live outside of San Diego County, most of our meetings were via phone, yet he managed to convey such a sharp ceremony, guiding us through every minor procedure. Not only were we immensely satisfied with his work, but we had multiple family & friends express their reactions too, which was nothing short of admiration. If you are looking for someone to officiate your wedding and/or looking for someone for premarital counseling, reach out to Pastor Carlos. You will not regret it. If there is one thing we absolutely appreciated about him, it was that he took the time to get to know us as a couple. He figured out our strengths and weaknesses and then helped us to grow. We cannot say enough good things about him! Thank you again Pastor Carlos! -Lorenzo and DanielleSent on 11/26/2019

We love Pastor Carlos!
After speaking with many Pastors and Ministers alike, we are so happy we chose Pastor Carlos! We were in a complete pinch with our wedding being one month away when we stumbled across him. After speaking with him, and then speaking with him again once my now husband returned from deployment, we knew he was the perfect missing piece to make our wedding day spectacular, and he did not disappoint. He was extremely kind, flexible, and absolutely wonderful to work with. He tailored our wedding day to fit us perfectly and I could not recommend him more. He is simply the best!Sent on 11/01/2018

Everything and more
Our officiant was the best! To have someone not only perform your ceremony for you but truly be a man of god and pray for you as a couple is something you cannot pay for. We were so truly blessed to have had the opportunity to have worked with Carlos Sales and have him do our premarital counseling. If we could talk to him everyday, we would without a doubt. He is the most genuine, down to earth person, he opened his home to us and truly invested in us as a couple. He prayed for us and with us, he emailed us to follow up with us on wedding plans, he called us to make sure we were happy with our ceremony choices prior to the big day. He went above and beyond what we ever imagined and couldn't be more grateful.Sent on 09/03/2019

With Gratitude for our Beautiful Wedding Ceremony
Pastor Carlos brought together a wonderful celebration for us that incorporated fun, sentimentality, deep reflection and spirituality. We felt our sacred vows were something that not only our friends and family were moved by and enjoyed, but we felt a true sense that Pastor Pastor Carlos wanted our union to be the most special and enduring relationship, under God, that we could ever conceive. And he was the heartfelt conduit for it. We are so grateful for Pastor Carlos!Sent on 12/08/2019
