  • Rev. Luisa is a talented and committed Interfaith Minister and Holistic Healer who brings light and joy to every single wedding experience. I have worked with her for many years, and when I refer a couple to her, I rest easy knowing that their needs and interests are in good hands. Rev. Luisa creates beautiful, meaningful, personalized services for couples (In English or Spanish) with the perfect balance of ritual and spirituality. Her peaceful presence ushers couples through this sacred experience with great care, and keeps all those present mindful of what the day is truly about – LOVE! Angela Gregory Riverside Church, NYC

    My experiences in working with Angela Gregory at The Riverside Church, is always one of the highlights of the year for me. Angela is dedicated and consummately professional in her craft. The vastly different couples with whom she works and helps in producing one of the most important and successful days of their lives is both dazzling and a distinct honor of which to be a part. Her elegant coordination helps immeasurably to make my work as officiant effortless and memorable. I always look forward to being a part of the special day that Angela helps to create. Love, Rev. Luisa

  • Luisa saved my life! My husband and I were planning on getting married at the marriage bureau at the city clerk's office, but realized 3 days before that it would be closed due to veteran's day. In a panic, I contacted about 20 officiants looking for someone who could marry us, as we had family coming in and we had to get married that day. Many wanted me to pay upwards of 500 dollars, some wanted me to travel somewhere that would be more convenient for them, and almost none actually listened when I said what I wanted. Luisa was very responsive, flexible, and enthusiastic! She calmed my nerves and made my wedding really special. Thanks Luisa!

    Dear Rowan and Sam, It was such a pleasure to have had the honor of officiating at your lovely wedding at the Royalton Hotel Penthouse. Although we had little time to plan, everything unfolded seamlessly. Meeting your welcoming families was one of the highlights of the occasion. Wishing you both much love, happiness and beautiful memories, always.

  • Deanna and I had Luisa officiate our wedding ceremony at Riverside Church in Manhattan on 9/23/17. It was a beautiful ceremony, and one of the most beautiful parts was Luisa! From the first meeting onward, Luisa was very responsive, and really tried to get to know us. The first time we met, Luisa and her wife sat down with us and asked us questions about ourselves, our families, our relationship, and what was important to us in our ceremony. They shared their own stories and advice, and I can honestly say we had a great time talking and sharing with them as people. We were able to personalize our ceremony to really feel like our own, with Luisa sending us fully fledged outlines of what our ceremony would include for us to edit and make notes on as we saw fit. In our case, we had two of our friends perform a song, incorporated an Irish hand-fasting, and invited five of our closest friends to share quotes/readings/stories etc., all within the confines of a 30 minute Christian wedding cer...

    Dear Sara and Deanna, Your beautiful wedding was both heartfelt and memorable. The creative choice of having your friends share selective readings and stories as well as having the beautiful music chosen will stay in all of our memories. It was a joy to meet your families and friends. All were extremely welcoming. I would like to thank you for taking the time for your admirable review. You both have touched Deirdra and my hearts. We wish you all the best in every endeavor of your lives.

  • Loved Luisa - she is so calm and enthusiastic. She also made sure we were happy with every word of the program - helping us craft a few versions until we hit on the one we liked the best. The day was amazing, she is experienced, kind and so pleasant to work with . I'd recommend her without any reservations! You won't go wrong!!

    Your exquisitely unique wedding, most especially with your "How do you know (I was the one)?" personalized readings, made the ceremony a delightful surprise for all of us. To be honest, your wedding was the very first where the bride actually asked--as I teared up--"Did you need a moment?" to compose myself! Much good luck and happiness to you both, Sezelle and Ted. It was a distinct honor to have officiated your wedding at your lovely home.

    Ofelia & Rafael your bilingual wedding ceremony in Terrace on the Park, was a magical fairy tale-like experience. The day was just right for your lovely outdoor wedding and your son and daughter added perfectly to this unforgettable occasion. May you all enjoy the very best life has to offer. Con cariño, Rev.

    Your exquisite bilingual ceremony at the Queens Botanical Wedding Garden was a very spiritual and heartfelt moment in time. I was especially touched when you lovingly placed your palms on each other's hearts as you said your vows. As your friends and family surrounded you in your circle ceremony, one could feel the peace and harmony of the universe. Wishing you both all the peace, love and joy you so lovingly deserve.

  • Rev. Luisa is the BEST!! It was like love at first sight. Her energy is so positive. She is such kind and loving person. Such a professional. I honestly felt an immediate connection with her and her assistant Deidre. She answered all of my questions. She fulfilled her duty as an officiant for our wedding. We had a unity sand ceremony which was absolutely beautiful & touching. My husband and I are extremely grateful to have had her be the one to marry us. Luisa, we wish you much success. Thank you for making our day so special. We absolutely adore you! Thank you so very much! We will never ever forget you. Big xoxo

    Your bilingual wedding at the lovely Dyker Beach Golf Course was, indeed, a memorable one. I will never forget the beautiful day, your loving family and friends and your magnificent wedding dress. You and Noe truly deserve all the best life can offer; and the heartfelt role that your children played in the sand ceremony was one of the highlights of your wonderful wedding day. Wishing you all much happiness, success and blessings in all that you do.

  • Rev. Porrata was kind and accommodating during every part of the process. There was no time during the preparation when I felt unsure of her capabilities. She delivered our service in both English and Spanish, included personalized writing, and worked with us and the church every step of the way to make sure our special day was perfect.

    Your wedding at the Riverside Church Nave was indeed beautiful and unforgettable. It was so obvious to all that the two of you share a bond that is incredibly special. Much good luck and happiness in your lives together. .

  • My now-husband and I were matched with Rev. Porrata by the Riverside Church, and we could not be more thrilled that she was the one to marry us. During our first meeting with Luisa, she really got to know us and we got to know her as well. We were immediately connected to her through her warm welcome and smiles. She provided us with a lovely ceremony, in both English and Spanish, and helped us to personalize our ceremony; we're honored to have had her as our Officiant on out 5/6/17 wedding! Everything was seamless and perfect, and our friends and family even asked us how long we'd known her, and that she spoke as though we'd all been friends for quite some time. Highly recommend her!

    Officiating at your bilingual wedding was, to me, one of the highlights of the year. I especially loved how your family members and friends delighted at being part of the ceremony. They stood up as soon as the wedding party entered, anxiously awaiting your arrival. Even before the processional began you could feel the incredible excitement of all your guests. Many blessing on you both. Con Carino Rev. Luisa Porrata

  • Luisa is a kind, wonderful person and was very concerned with getting the details of our ceremony just right. She'll have you fill out a questionnaire to better get to know you, and send you a draft ceremony, which you are welcome to edit and send back to her. She is highly recommended!

    You two made the most beautiful couple as you said your heartfelt vows. Your families were obviously delighted by your love for each other as they smiled throughout the ceremony. I was touched by how all your loved ones were so thankful for the bilingual ceremony and made me feel like part of the family. Much love and happiness to you both as you begin your lives together.

  • I had the honor of planning Alexa and Chase's wedding and unfortunately, the officiant we originally had enlisted to perform their ceremony had a family emergency. With only a few hours notice, Rev. Luisa willingly stepped in to create and deliver a personalized and heartfelt ceremony. We were granting a wish through Wish Upon a Wedding because the groom was very ill, so the words chosen were particularly important and the situation required a heighten sensitivity to the circumstances. With almost no time to prep, very little direction and having not met the couple, Rev. Luisa created a space for the couple to share their story comfortably in their own words, enabling them to create a memory that was captured and will be treasured forever.
