  • If you are looking for a wedding officiant, seriously look no further. Nate is the ABSOLUTE BEST. My husband and I spoke to multiple individuals before choosing Nate and could not find anyone whom we connected with or felt confident in. After speaking to Nate, everything changed. He made our wedding ceremony the best and he was so easy to work with. My husband and I at the time did not live in the same city, so Nate offered to Skype or conference call us. Communication was simple and easy. All of our guests loved our ceremony and the way Nate blended everything in was very meaningful and personalized. You have to go with Nate! I PROMISE you that you won't be disappointed!

  • Nate was an absolute blessing for our Orange County based wedding. His personality is caring, kind, positive, and passionate; this shined through brightly in his ceremony. He was able to uniquely blend religious elements in a way which was not overpowering, non-traditional elements such a rose ceremony to honor our parents, and personal elements such as adjectives to describe ourselves (bride and groom) which were aggregated from the wedding party. Nate was a pleasure to work with as he was always responsive and he was able to envision, and then execute, the type of event we had always dreamed of.

  • Nate was the officiant of our wedding on 4/28/18 in Dana Point and he did an AMAZING job!!! We did a facetime consultation with Nate and hired him immediately after. He was kind, sincere, upbeat, and perfect for the type of ceremony we wanted. He sent us an outline of the wedding ceremony along with the ability to change anything we wanted. He also sent us questions about us, our relationship, etc. to help personalize the ceremony. Nate showed up the day of the ceremony early and dressed professionally. He was even nice enough to wait on the bridesmaids to finish getting ready so the photographer could get a photo of them signing the marriage license. :) The ceremony was amazing and it couldn't have gone better! Nate made it fun, comfortable, and incorporated our story and the guests. Numerous guests commented that it was the best ceremony they've ever seen. Others asked how long we've known him for because it seemed like he knew us so well. We couldn't have been happier with the cerem... Read more

  • Nate was the perfect officiant for my wedding to my beautiful wife Megan at Talega Golf Club in San Clemente on January 13, 2018. We interviewed a few different pastors and when we met with Nate at a local Starbucks, we instantly knew he was the right fit for us. He made us feel insta rly comfortable, he was willing to work with us by combining modern, millennial type requests with a traditional religious ceremony. He did such a wonderful job of capturing our love story, how our bridal party felt about us/described us in their own words and communicating our story and who we are to the entire audience. He gave wonderful advice throughout the process and kept me calm and made me less nervous prior to the ceremony beginning. Everyone at the wedding was so impressed with how Nate articulated the importance of marriage and the journey we were embarking on. Nate handled all the little details and made it so easy for my wife and I to focus on our big day. I would recommend Nate to anyone loo... Read more

  • Nate Castro was an AMAZING officiant for our wedding! We loved the entire process that Nate took us through. Whether you are local or are heading to CA for a destination wedding— Nate will be able to accommodate you. We were able to set up a video chat with Nate to go over all of the details on how we wanted our ceremony to go. We currently live in VA and we weren’t able to meet one on one prior to our big day. He was so thorough and made our ceremony Exactly how I wanted it to be. My friends and family came up to me during our reception and wanted to know how long I knew Nate and had been going to his church. The truth is That I had only read great reviews and watched videos of him before choosing him. I think it is very telling of just how wonderful he is. There is a true genuine character in Nate and I really hope that when you are choosing an officiant that you stronger consider Nate Castro!

  • Nate did a wonderful job officiating our wedding. It was like having a long time family friend marry us. My husband and I knew right from the beginning that he was kind and gentle, and just an all around good guy. He was willing to work with us on short notice. He obliged all of our special requests and integrated them into the ceremony wonderfully. He told our story so beautifully, that some of our guests asked if we him personally. Nate was also punctual and professional looking. We would definitively recommend him to anyone and everyone!

  • What can I say.... Nate did a excellent job officiating our wedding! After calling about a dozen officiants, who sounded like used car salesmen, I came across Nate's profile on The Knot. He was quick to responded to my call and was so genuine over the phone. He was quick to set-up a meeting time that worked with our schedules. He took the time to get to know us as a couple over coffee and was sincerely excited to hear our love story! Nate did a fabulous job contacting our wedding party and incorporating what they had to say about us in his reading. If you are looking for an officiant we would highly recommend Nate!

  • We were an out of state wedding held in Laguna and we were able meet with Nate several times before the wedding to discuss the ceremony and what we were hoping to have. Nate was very professional and gave us many ideas that we hadn't even thought of. Nate provided a friendly atmosphere and the flow of the ceremony was perfect! If your looking for someone who has a warm, welcoming personality who will seamlessly run your ceremony choose Nate! I've seen many drab ceremonies and the officiant really sets the mood for the rest of the night and let's just say it was an incredible night!! Choose Nate!!!!! You won't regret it!

  • My husband and I instantly liked Nate from our very first FaceTime chat. Right after we got off the phone with him we both said to each other that he was the one to officiate us. Nate is very professional, fun and outgoing. We love all he has to offer and will definitely be referring him to friends. He made our ceremony very personalized and added in his touches as well. He did such an amazing job and we're so happy we chose him to officiate our wedding! Even though we didn't know Nate for a very long time, we felt as though we knew each other for years. Thank you for making our ceremony so beautiful, everyone keeps talking about it!

  • Pastor Nate was great! He met with us once before the ceremony. He was very thorough in explaining his process and how the day of the ceremony would go. He asked us about how we met, and how things have progressed over the course of our relationship, and he genuinely seemed excited and interested about everything we had to say. We exchanged several emails in preparation for the big day, and everything was perfect the day of. Pastor Nate was punctual, well spoken and performed the ceremony perfectly. We would definitely recommend Pastor Nate for your wedding!

  • Amazing, amazing, amazing! From the very first FaceTime we were able to tell that Nate understood our vision for the ceremony that we wanted. He was always professional, friendly, and most of all very easy to speak to. I always thought that planning a ceremony cross country, in a state that I had never been in, would be an impossible task however with Nate as our officiant things could not have gone better. Our wedding coordinator suggested Nate as one of our vendors and I am so glad that she did! We explained to Nate that we wanted a short, sweet and to the point ceremony and that is exactly what he provided for us. There are few goofy moments (mostly on our part), and a good number of tearjerkers. Our guests could not stop complimenting how well the ceremony had gone and a few of them even asked for Nate's information in order to suggest him for our friends with upcoming weddings. If you are looking for professional, friendly, punctual and most of all personable service look no furth... Read more

  • We planned our wedding to be held in Orange County in July while living in Minnesota. Working with Nate to plan the ceremony was the easiest part of planning the whole celebration. After Face Timing with him for our first meeting, he was always very responsive to our texts and emails, with a very “go with the flow” attitude the whole time. He was very personable and had a great energy that he brought to the process. Nate worked with us to include our daughter and a few other requests to make the ceremony personal to us. If you’re considering Nate to be your officiant, I can’t say enough good things and offer my full support to him.

  • Nate was amazing! We wanted a short and quick ceremony but one that was still touching and personal to us and he did just that. Although we had only met and had several conversations before our big day, it felt like having a really close friend up there with us.
