Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! I can only imagine the joy and anticipation you must be experiencing, as you prepare for this exciting "once-in-a-lifetime" event. The planning of your wedding can be a fun, joyous and rewarding experience. This certainly can be achieved, if you find the right support from all the service providers involved-the appropriate celebrant to conduct your ceremony, the proper venue and locating competent vendors.
There will be many concerns and details you will be handling in the days ahead. I am confident that my background, training and experience as a minister-chaplain will ensure the kind of wedding celebration you've envisioned. As a multi-faith minister, ordained in 1993, I have been actively performing ceremonies and rites-of-passage for various life-events in English, Spanish, and/or a combination of both. I received my ordination degree from "The New Seminary" in Manhattan, N.Y. And my clinical-pastoral education for chaplaincy certification was obtained at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida in 2001.
An important part of my services is to guide you and your fiancé through the selection and composition of 'just the right' wording for your ceremony. It will speak of your love and the essence of your unique relationship. Your ceremony will be custom designed, blending the symbols, values and beliefs of your individual backgrounds, resulting in an inspired, heartfelt outcome. You will receive the actual text copy used in your ceremony and an elegant, frame-worthy certificate of marriage.
It is extremely important to me to accommodate your choices and desires, so that every aspect of your ceremony is conducted exactly as you wish. I take great care in getting to know you both, as individuals, and as a couple. The ceremony itself is the most remembered part of the celebration; therefore, it is imperative to have a cohesive effort from all involved. This guarantees that the event will be cherished, not only by the two of you, but also by those who love you, and you will carry with you the sweet memory of this moment for the rest of your lives.
Please know that it will be my distinct honor to officiate in this celebration for you.
Dear Rev. Sanchez,

You are truly a caring, wonderful person and we feel very lucky to have found you. Thanks again for everything. Sincerely, Mike and Maria Ortez
