We just got married on 11/3/17 and hiring Pastor Carlos as our officiant was one of the best decisions we made for our special day! Finding the right officiant was probably the hardest part of wedding planning for us, as I did not have a religious upbringing and my husband grew up Catholic. Because we were having an outdoor wedding, we were unable to use my husband's Catholic family priest, so the first few months we were researching like crazy to find the perfect officiant that could help create the ceremony we both had in mind! Pastor Carlos was exactly what we were looking for. Throughout the whole process he was so easy to work with and was always available to chat by phone, text or email with any questions we had. He walked us through our whole ceremony over the phone and we got to design and personalize the ceremony however we wanted - plus it helped put us at ease knowing how the ceremony was going to go. The ceremony could not have been more perfect! We were both nervous beforehand with all the attention that was going to be on us, but Pastor Carlos made us feel so comfortable being up at the alter and it truly felt like we had known him for years. We got so many compliments from our friends and family (even the super Catholic ones!) who all said Pastor Carlos and the entire ceremony was amazing. Thank you so much Pastor Carlos for making our wedding so special! I wish we could do it all over again!!Sent on 11/18/2017

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 11/03/2018

Such a great experience!
We contacted Pastor Carlos about a month before our wedding worries it would be too short of notice. He set aside all of the time needed to make us feel happy and very comfortable with our ceremony! Our ceremony was so beautiful and we received many compliments! He is very professional and I didn’t have to worry about anything with him! :)Sent on 12/04/2018

Customized, Unique, and Beautiful
From the initial phone call to the completion of the ceremony it was a pleasure to work with Pastor Carlos. I felt a genuine human being on the other side of the phone and not a salesman. The ceremony itself we completely customized and had some really unique and interesting options that we loved! (The back to back was a hit and the wife and I loved it symbolism) 11/10 would recommend.Sent on 12/20/2018

Truly unique & unforgettable ceremony!!!
We were so blessed by Pastor Carlos and all the time he put into making our ceremony truly unique. We got so many compliments from our friends & family about how ours was the most meaningful and beautiful ceremony they'd ever witnessed. Pastor Carlos' many years of experience in writing and performing weddings is quite obvious in his professionalism and the quality of his work. We would absolutely recommend 2Wed4Life to any family & friends looking to make their ceremony unforgettable!Sent on 12/31/2018

Great choice for an officiant!
I am so happy that Pastor Carlos was a part of our big day. My husband and I enjoyed the fact the he gave us several options to pick and choose from so that we were able to create a customized ceremony. He was very helpful in offering suggestions during our planning phone call so that the ceremony flowed nicely as well. Pastor Carlos has a pleasant speaking voice and a friendly demeanor. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the wedding and the ceremony was exactly what Connor and I hoped for. My grandmother was also impressed with the ceremony (which was important to us). She thought that it had just the right amount of traditional Christian sentiments without being heavy-handed.Sent on 11/03/2018

To be honest, one of the reasons why we contacted Pastor Carlos to be our officiant at our wedding was because of his infectious and photogenic smile! And of course after speaking to him, we knew that he would do an amazing job for our ceremony. He had so many selections of readings and traditions and we were able to create a custom ceremony for our wedding! His couple session was also very informative and let me and my new husband have a game plan for our marriage. If you need an officiant who is organized, communicative, personable, and just an overall lovely person to officiate your wedding, Pastor Carlos is your person! Thank you Carlos for being a part of our special day!Sent on 09/30/2018

We did our premarital counseling and ceremony with Pastor Carlos. My husband and I are so happy we did!!Sent on 11/03/2018
We had such a wonderful time planning our ceremony with Pastor Carlos. He gave us options and helped us fully customized each part of our ceremony. He had very helpful suggestions and walked us through each step of the ceremony. My husband and I felt confident and relax the day of the wedding. I would highly recommend Pastor Carlos. He is a sweetheart and we had a great time planning our ceremony.

Pastor Carlos was amazing. We didn't have a wedding planner or a rehearsal and Pastor Carlos was able to walk us through the whole process and the ceremony. He was funny and made our family laugh and smile. He is very clear and doesn't miss a beat, he really has a passion for what he does. I will always recommend Pastor Carlos to anyone that need a pastor to marry them.Sent on 07/26/2018

We customized our ceremony to be exactly what we both wanted, and it was perfect! Nothing but good things to say, he was a perfect fit for us. Thank you Pastor Carlos!!Sent on 05/11/2018

WOW! <3 If you're looking for a pastor to marry you and your Husband/wife stop looking and set a date to meet with Pastor Carlos. He was one of the biggest blessings we had on our big day! He made my husband feel extremely comfortable (which inst easy to do) and both of us felt so prepared on the day of our wedding. We seriously found him about 3 months before our wedding (I thought we weren't going to find anyone) and he was able to fit us in for premarital counseling before and do our ceremony. We didn't give him much time to work with but he made it all work. He actually was able to do our wedding the day after he got back from his big mission trip. He truly is a kind, caring, and loving man. He was very open with us both and made the whole process easy and not as scary as we thought at all. My aunt is the one that referred us to him; after interviewing other pastors and the fact that we met him just a couple months before the wedding AND how right it felt was unreal. We love you Pastor Carlos, thank you for being so REAL and kind to us and all our family and guests.Sent on 09/26/2018
* Best of all he made our ceremony personal, touching and was able to incorporate some passages from the bible that tied everything together in such a magical way. We got so many comments about how beautiful the ceremony was. But the fact that we loved it and it went so smoothly and beautifully makes it all that much more beautiful.

Olivia · Married on 12/16/2017
Pastor Carlos did absolutely amazing work with us from start to finish. From meeting with us to discuss our ideas, to providing insight about how to make those ideas even better, to performing an unforgettable custom ceremony, he was professional, friendly, flexible, and one step ahead in every moment! There is nothing we would change and no one we would recommend with higher compliments than Pastor Carlos. It was great to hear so many of our guests tell us what a wonderful officiant we had. In fact, four soon to be married couples at our wedding have planned to have him as their wedding officiant as well. Another great thing about Pastor Carlos is his knowledge of other vendors (photographers, venues, caterers, etc.), and his joyful attitude (not to mention his sense of humor); both of which take a lot of the stress of planning a wedding away. We are so thankful to have had such an incredible experience thanks to Pastor Carlos!Sent on 01/14/2018

Pastor Carlos was amazing! He was the first officiant we met with and we immediately knew he was the one we wanted to officiate our wedding. He went above and beyond to make sure he had pronunciations of names correct, and that everyone knew where they had to be. We were never stressed because we knew he had us in good hands! He seemed to genuinely care about our relationship, and we found the pre-marriage counseling he offered to be extremely helpful! I'd recommend it to anyone considering it!
Liezel · Married on 11/22/2017
We're so happy that we chose Pastor Carlos to be a part of our wedding. Pastor Carlos was very thorough with explaining all of our options and helped us put together an amazing ceremony that catered to our families, which included a rose ceremony for our mothers, as well as a Blessing of the Hands. Before the ceremony, I even asked Pastor Carlos to say a prayer with me to help calm my nerves. I definitely recommend Pastor Carlos to be a part of your special day!
Chad · Married on 11/03/2017
Pastor Carlos did a tremendous ceremony for me and my wife. We watched many videos of different officiants during our decision making process and we really liked the sincerity he brought to the table so we went with him. He spoke well, was incredibly sincere, and performed the exact type of ceremony we were looking for. We didn't meet him until the day of our wedding but he was very friendly and as soon as we met him it felt like we had already known him for a while. He is very nice and radiates positive energy. Leading up to our wedding day we had several questions about the ceremony and vows and he was very helpful in answering all of our questions promptly. I highly recommend him to anyone! We can't wait to see our wedding day on video.Sent on 11/24/2017

My wife and I are from the UK and recently got married in La Jolla, California. We were recommended Pastor Carlos and he helped make our special day absolutely perfect. We weren't able to physically meet Pastor Carlos until the day of the wedding however Pastor Carlos made himself available using Skype / Facetime whenever we needed to speak with him and promptly replying to emails. He offered us fantastic advice and options for the theme of the ceremony but also accommodated some British traditions, taking all the stress of the ceremony away from us.Sent on 11/15/2017
Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and if we could do it again we wouldn't change a thing! Massive thanks to Pastor Carlos.
