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

When we were first looking for an officiant for our wedding we had interviewed with two but in the end we chose Pastor Carlos. We felt he had more to offer, valuable input for our wedding ceremony, and very friendly, professional, and kind. We definitely recommend Pastor Carlos! He tailored our ceremony to our needs and wants and made sure everything would go smoothly.Sent on 12/30/2019

Pastor Carlos is amazing
Pastor Carlos ordained my marriage. He's so kind, attentive, and wise. Through our whole process Pastor Carlos gave us words of wisdom and guidance on this process. He took the time to get to know us and our families. And even more, on the day of he gave us peace and helped relax our nerves. We can't recommend Pastor Carlos any more. He's amazing, highly professional, and lovely person all around.Sent on 11/24/2019

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
2Wed4Life.com's reply:Wow, want a blessing it was for me to be there with you two when you pledged to a union like on other. What a special time and honor it was... you two are amazing! Looks like you got some great pics... would love to see more. ;-) Keep in touch. Blessings, PC

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
2Wed4Life.com's reply:Thank you for trusting me and allowing me to be part of your wonderful day. It really was a honor and I'm so happy to know you two were pleased. You both looked amazing... it was like a storybook wedding! I can't wait to see your pictures! Blessing, PC

Kind, Thoughtful, and Thorough
My wife and I really enjoyed our experience with Pastor Carlos. Since day one he made preparation for the ceremony a breeze. Throughout the planning process his experience showed and his organization made our preparation easy. He responds promptly and works well with you and really made our ceremony extra special. After getting married you get insight on things you wish you had done and things you wish you had skipped and choosing Pastor Carlos is a must. Thank you!Sent on 12/16/2019

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

Very thoughtful and professional
Carlos is very personable and he makes you feel like you've known him for years. When my wife and I first met with him, he gave us so many unique ideas for our wedding that we knew he was the right officiant for us. Without him I don't think we would've had the same experience on our wedding day.Sent on 11/26/2019

Exceeded our expectations
Pastor Carlos was a joy to work with. He was very professional, personable, and he made the whole process enjoyable. He offered unexpected benefits like the Prepare-Enrich program (aka "fun premarital counseling" as my husband calls it)-- we still talk about how helpful this was for us. It made us discuss topics we hadn't really talked about before (how many kids do we want, how will we handle finances going forward, discussing love languages, etc). These extra meetings helped Pastor Carlos get to know us better as a couple as well. We appreciated the way he gave us ceremony options to choose from and allowed us to customize it to feel more like "us". Thank you Pastor Carlos for providing a beautiful ceremony, giving us peace of mind throughout the planning process, and for helping us build a stronger foundation to build our marriage on!Sent on 10/10/2019

Perfect ceremony! Gave us exactly what we wanted!

Pastor Carlos excels at tailoring the event to exactly meet your needs. He was very responsive when planning and was a delight on the day of. He coordinated his clothing to match our wedding colors and helped guide the wedding party during the event. He is clearly a professional and loves what he does. After the wedding he handled the paperwork timely and we had zero issues with anything and are so happy we picked him to be our officiant.

Amazing, genuine, and professional!
Pastor Carlos is so genuine and welcoming, always with a smile to greet you! As soon as we finished our first meeting with him we knew we wanted him to be our officiant. What we loved most about him was his calming, warm presence. We automatically felt so comfortable with him and left our meeting feeling like we had been chatting with an old friend. He eased any doubts we may have had. There was no need to meet with anyone else!
He was so organized and he listened to what we wanted in our ceremony and was happy to offer advice and suggestions when needed. He gave us so many options to look over and he created such a beautiful ceremony that was special and meaningful for us. You can tell he has many years of experience and he genuinely loves what he does. You are in good hands with Pastor Carlos!
