  • After deciding to forego the church ceremony and have everything at our venue - we came across Juan Toro - and never looked back! From initial contact to wedding, he was so attentive and accommodating. We wanted to find an officiant that was bilingual in Spanish and English - and sounded natural speaking both. Juan's tone and demeanor was nothing short of perfection! He worked so closely with us to create the perfect ceremony and we are forever grateful! We got to know him so well, we'd consider him family now! Thank you again Juan!

  • Mr. Toro is very professional and very helpful. He emailed us our ceremony for our approval. It was beautiful. He made our bilingual ceremony very special. Our guests loved it.

  • I was 6 weeks away from my wedding and realized I forgot to book the most important part of the wedding, my officiant. I desperately went on the hunt through the app and sent a mass message to every officiant on the app. I got many responses but Juan’s stood out. It wasn’t his price that stood out, which is extremely reasonable, but it was his genuine and sincere response to my request. I knew from reading that first response that he was a very nice human being. I decided to go with him for his great ratings, price and professionalism. What I didn’t know was how great of an addition he was to the wedding. He was so accommodating to all my requests, communicated throughout the entire process, expressed his excitement for our union, and performed an amazing ceremony full of inspiration, love, faith, and joy. He even takes your marriage certificate and mails it out for you! He also emailed me and left some encouraging and beautiful words. Like this guy is the best! Thank you... Read more

  • My husband (then fiance) found Juan here on Wedding Wire, and from the moment we met him we felt so at ease with him! He is very sweet, kind, and organized. He officiated our July 2018 wedding, arrived on time, and did a beautiful job! His poems and the overall ceremony felt zen within our outdoor garden setting! Our family was raving about how he performed our ceremony, telling us how beautiful it was! He officiated our ceremony in English and Spanish and it was so seamless! My favorite piece of advice from him was after he pronounces us Husband & Wife and after the first kiss, we face our guests and really take in all the joy of the view of our guests' smiling faces and record that memory in our hearts! Hearing that piece of advice before the ceremony really put me at ease, and set the tone for the day! We highly, highly recommend him!!

  • From the first contact Juan was a pleasure to work with for our july 2018 wedding in Long Island. Juan really made us feel comfortable and was caring and eager to be part of our big day. On the day of the event he arrived on time and help facilitate the process. He was also able to officiate our ceremony in English and Spanish. Having met Juan was a blessing he is nice and caring all around. Highly recommend.

  • I couldn't have asked for a better Wedding Officiant. Not only did he performed a beautiful ceremony but he offered patience, kindness, and warmth during one of the busiest time of our lives. Please do not hesitate to consider him as your Wedding Officiant. We were very lucky to have found a wonderful minister, and to have someone like him share his blessings for our wedding.

  • It was a pleasure to have Juan officiate our wedding. He provided a beautiful bilingual ceremony for us. He was very flexible. He made sure he received our input to tailor our ceremony to fit the nature of our love. He was very kind and willing to work with us on short notice. We also had an easy time with communicating with him to confirm the details. The ceremony expressed our sentiments perfectly. We were honored to share Juan's beautiful words with our guests. He did an awesome job at creating a split between English and Spanish. We highly recommend that anyone allow Juan to help create a truly memorable experience on your wedding day. It was a glorious day! Thanks so much Juan!

  • We love Juan Enrique! He was so easy to collaborate with, inviting us to customize his standard ceremony. Reliable too, he sent confirmation emails in the days leading up to the event. Friendly and professional with a warm energy and wonderful delivery. What a joy to have him be a part of our wedding day! Highly recommend!

  • My husband and I hired Juan Enrique Toro from Pura Vida Weddings for our very simple wedding ceremony. He responded to all of our requests quickly and had no issue with us wanting to write much of our own vows. He was so respectful of our secular views of religion and was very kind and helpful to us through the entire event. We could not have asked for a better experience!

  • My fiance and I reached out to this vendor on several occasions via wedding wire, email, and Facebook. Struggling to find a bilingual officiant, we were hoping he would have an opening and loved his reviews. Weeks later and neither of us has gotten as little as a, "I'm booked" response back. Very upsetting.

  • I chose Pura Vida (Juan) because he was affordable, bilingual, and spiritual. He was delightful to work with. He was flexible in not only meeting up but with the ceremony. He gave me a good backbone to work with and I pretty much mashed several ceremony readings into one (we included a lasso ceremony and had parts in english and in spanish). The ceremony turned out beautiful! My mom thoroughly enjoyed his presence, personality, and the way he conducted the ceremony (let's be real, if my mom was touched, then he did a really great job). Communication can lag a little bit so I do recommend to email him (like don't reply to an old email, write a new email) if you haven't heard from him.
