Claudia Belledonne · Getting married on 10/16/2021
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!Sent on 03/06/2020
Saint Jude Ministries's reply: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

Rev Calderin is a God Send
My husband and I spoke with Rev Calderin separately while trying to fond someone for pre-marital counseling. We were both individually "hooked" from our first conversation. His kind approach and warmth were unmistakable. He welcomed us with open arms and gently guided us through the process. He was very flexible with us as we have demanding schedules. For the exchange of vows, his words were touching and personal as he had gotten to know about us albeit in a short space of time. Rev Calderin clearly takes his commitment to his couples very seriously, and it shows. We appreciate him more than words could ever describe. This is one couple he will be stuck with for life! Thanks so much Rev Calderin! Forever grateful.Sent on 07/28/2020
Saint Jude Ministries's reply:Thanks so much Yanique and Miguel, much appreciated! I really enjoyed being a part of your special day and now you’re stuck with me! Love, Rev. Michael

Worlds best Reveran that will make your ceremony extra special
Wow!!! Where do I even begin. The best Reveran that can ever marry a couple. Rev Michael did an AMAZING job making my ceremony special. We had calls and FaceTime calls that worked around my husband and I schedule. I never heard of a Rose ceremony until Rev Michael and now this will never die in our relationship. I can’t explain how happy we are that we picked him. My family and friends loved him and asked where I found him. I can’t explain how happy I am that he was apart of our wedding and nailed it in every aspect and more. Thank you again for everything Rev Michael. We will defiantly keep in touch :)Sent on 03/17/2020
Saint Jude Ministries's reply:Thanks so much for your beautiful comments Heather and Chris. It’s been wonderful getting to know you both in preparation for your special day! I really enjoyed meeting your family and friends also. I know we will stay in touch for many years to come. Love, Rev. Michael.

From business to buddy
Rev Calderin has been a LIFESAVER ! He was the first person highly recommended to me and from the start of my wedding planning, and from the beginning I could totally see why! He goes above and beyond to build a relationship with you and make you feel comfortable. He gave me amazing guidance on the Do’s and Dont’s for my wedding planning along with a bunch of laughs. He helped get me through the toughest decisions to cancel our venue especially in our current difficult times of COVID -19 ! He has helped me in so many ways that weren’t even related to the job he was hired for and to me that means so much. He goes ABOVE and BEYOND his job description and leads with his heart, compassion and humility ! Even though my venue has been canceled until further notice I am so grateful to now have Rev Calderin as a support system and great friend. I look forward to working with him in the future and looking to him in hard times and in times of celebration ❤️ Thank you Rev!Sent on 07/06/2020
Saint Jude Ministries's reply:Thanks so much Domonique and Nicholas! I’m so blessed to have such amazing couples in my life who have become lifelong friends and family. I’m looking forward to seeing the next steps of your journey together. Love, Rev. Michael
Caleb Horvat · Married on 06/27/2020
Genuine and high quality. Excellent experience.
After video conferencing with Michael for the first time, we booked him on the spot. Above all, he is genuine and easy to open up to. It never felt like we were strangers and we have every intention of staying in touch with him in the future, like so many of his clients. Our wedding was both interfaith (but not very religious) and bilingual. Michael conducted an excellent ceremony that had several moving parts, and it went off without a hitch. He was there with us every step of the way. He also provided support for both of us, and gave us several special moments as a couple that will last into our marriage forever. We are so happy we chose Michael for our special day.Sent on 07/06/2020
Saint Jude Ministries's reply:Thanks so much Caleb and Kris! Despite the chaos in the world right now, we had a wonderful celebration of your love! I know that we are connected for a lifetime and I’m truly blessed having such amazing couples in my life!

Mary Stephanie · Married on 03/08/2020
Rev Michael Calderin officiated our wedding.
He was absolutely amazing! Since we were having a destination wedding, he made the time to have video conference calls with us in order to get to know us, learn about our culture, and understand how we envisioned our ceremony. It’s been one month since the wedding, and our family members still tell us how much they enjoyed Rev Michael’s approach to our ceremony. We feel so grateful we chose him to officiate our special day.Sent on 04/10/2020
Saint Jude Ministries's reply:Thanks so much for your words and thoughtfulness! I really enjoyed being a part of your journey and meeting your family and friends! Happy Easter and I look forward to our continued connection. Love, Rev Michael
Jessica · Married on 02/29/2020
Michael was absolutely amazing!!!! He was actually the first vendor I booked once I got engaged because of the personal relationship I have had with him for over 10 years. All in all, it was a no brainer to book Michael as the officiant. An extra selling point was that he did the ceremony in both English and Spanish which was important for both Erick and my family. With Michal, there was no stress, he was always responsive and also took the time to get to know us as a couple. Although he and I had an existing relationship, he really took the time to get to know my now husband, which made everything extra special. Additionally, my guests told me, our ceremony was the best ceremony they have ever witnessed. Michael took pieces of us and also made some funny moments, which was very well received by our guests. All in all, I wish I could get married again to have Michael officiate our wedding again. He has definitely become apart of our family and will be apart of our many more milestones ahead.Sent on 01/10/2017
Saint Jude Ministries's reply:Thanks Jessica! It was an honor and privilege! Love you guys.

Perfect Wedding Ceremony!
We had a perfect wedding ceremony! Michael was so professional and thorough! He met with us to get to know us and our family’s values. He incorporated everything into our ceremony perfectly! He was even able to put some humor into it that everyone loved! He did a beautiful reading to remember my father that recently passed and that meant the world to me! All of our guests continue to rave about him and his work! We thank Michael from the bottom of our hearts for our perfect ceremony!Sent on 01/22/2020

Life of he Party
Reverend Michael Somberg was an amazing recommendation from a friend in event planning. He was easy to talk to, understood our wants and made the ceremony fun. We received so many compliments about him and the ceremony being enjoyable - and hilarious (he had a nice stand up comedy act while the ceremony was delayed) He combined the simplicity we were looking for with tradition and humor, which put our nerves at ease. I can’t say enough about how happy I was with him and would recommend him every time. 10/10Sent on 01/27/2020
Saint Jude Ministries's reply:Thank you for taking the time to do a beautiful review! It’s been a wonderful journey getting to know you both and being able to officiate at your ceremony. Please stay in touch! Rev. Michael S.

Great experience with Reverend Michael!
We had a great experience with Reverend Michael Calderin! He took the time to really get to know me & my (new) husband which was so appreciated.

We got many compliments from our friends and family saying how much they enjoyed our ceremony and it’s all thanks to Rev. Mike! He had the perfect balance of lightheartedness & serious & sweet but funny. It was perfect!Sent on 02/04/2020

Michael was a pleasure to work with! He made us comfortable from the second we first met him. He even called us the day before the wedding to check in.

Dream come true!
Rev. Michael Caldrin was our officiant for our marriage on November 2019 in Key Largo Florida. The most important part of our wedding weekend for me was the ceremony and Rev. Michael made my dream come true of having the most beautiful ceremony. His words were magical and and heartfelt. We received a lot of feedback from guest that it was the best wedding ceremony they have ever been too. I feel fortunate to have met Michael and completed premarital counseling with him. We will certainly be calling Michael for all our future special life moments such as vowel renewals, christenings, etc.Sent on 01/05/2020

John Ziegler · Married on 10/26/2019
Michael Calderin was the officiant at our wedding this past weekend. Michael took the time to get to know my wife and I before our wedding and left out no minor detail in explaining how he would handle our ceremony. His attention to detail, professionalism, and ability bring smiles to our faces is something my family and guests will never forget. We highly recommend Michael’s services and we can’t thank him enough for his time and commitment.Sent on 10/28/2019
