  • This is not a real Catholic priest. If you think you are getting married in the Catholic Church, or by a Catholic priest, by being married by this man, you are mistaken. You can only be married in the Church by going through a Catholic parish and fulfilling the Church's requirements! This man is a fraud. Do not be deceived by him, unless you are looking for a pseudo-Catholic wedding, that is. On his website he even says he is "NOT affiliated in any way or form with the Roman Catholic Church."

  • I loved working with el padre Joaquin services. My husband and I, very much appreciated his job on the most important day in our lives - thus far. He is serious about his role as a father, but also fun to work with. He made our familes, and friends laugh and everyone commented positively about the ceremony. He does just what you ask of him, and makes the whole process very easy for you. I Highly recommend him. Just make sure he receives all the paperwork and anything else he asks of you via email, etc.

  • Father Joaquin arrived on time and early to our ceremony, which was greatly appreciated. We met with him twice to go over our ceremony preference, style, and to personalize it. Let me just say that he uses one script for all ceremonies and all it changes are your names, 7 generic adjectives you tell him about each other and let me say something here: 30 minutes before my ceremony he DID NOT have our story and "personalization" with him so he came up to ME, the bride, already nervous to walk down the aisle, to have me look up the email where I promptly had sent weeks before my wedding. I felt like I was just another paycheck to him and the ceremony, although funny and enjoyable at times, was rushed and incredibly fast. He was invited to stay through the cocktail hr and my father later told me he was fishing for a tip - my dad, at his own daughter´s wedding, did not come prepared with cash or a check. He felt like he left with arrogance. He then later came up to me to say goodbye, and h... Read more

  • I felt so comfortable and happy with Father Joaquin officiating and celebrating my wedding. We laughed, we cried and married! He spoke English and Spanish during the wedding ceremony which made everyone in my family feel welcomed and a part of our union. Thank you Father Joaquin!

  • Father Joaquin was amazing and did a great job at our ceremony. He even went to both our rooms to make sure we were ready and on time. He made the ceremony very interesting and not boring at all, he was very interactive. It's been 8 days since our wedding and I don't regret hiring him, he was the best choice I could have ever picked for this special moment.

  • Father Joaquin is the absolute best! From the first time I spoke to him over the phone he had me laughing. He has such an amazing way of making you feel at ease which is especially important since you will most likely be a big ball of nerves on your wedding day! He made our ceremony very personal by incorporating our little love story and our guests really enjoyed that. I could hear people laughing all throughout the ceremony because he has the charisma to reach that many people! And also I really loved the blessings he gave, it really felt like it was tailored to our needs!!! Call him and see for yourself :)

  • My husband and I got in contact with Father Joaquin 5 months before our wedding and paid for the 50%, 3 days before the wedding we contacted him, he didn't have scheduled our ceremony. We wanted a bilingual ceremony since our families speak different lenguajes, as a last minute solution he suggested his church partner who was holding a book to read all the ceremony and didn't even could pronounce the words in English. We had to pay the same amount of money $800 not even a discount was considered for us. the fact that we did not have Father Joaquin as we were prepared after many calls with him, could cause a big issue in your wedding.

  • We were calling Father Joaquin for months, everyone said he was the best. Once he finally committed, it took more contact calling to get him to send us the paperwork. Literally were still calling asking him to send us paperwork a week before the wedding. He never got it to us, and as a result my husband was filling it out day of the ceremony and texting me an hour before the wedding asking for adjectives to describe each other! At the ceremony, he totally got huge details wrong (because he didn't try to get to know us) and we literally had to say 'no, father we met 10 years ago- not 4. Super embarrassing. I wish he had shown a little more effort, it was a special day for us and very clear we were just a paycheck to him.

  • We had an excellent experience with Father Joaquin. He was very responsive, respectful and accommodating leading up to our wedding, and made our ceremony feel extremely personalized. The ceremony lasted 25-30 minutes, the perfect length in my opinion, and did not feel short or rushed. His services are a little pricey, but well worth it.
