TESTIMONIALS 

My wife and I were married in April and we had the great pleasure of having Alberto preforming our ceremony. Going into it, we weren't sure exactly what we wanted. We didn't want traditional vows but at the same time, we didn't want to go to far out there. We met with Alberto several times and he was extremely patient in working with us and helped us to put together the perfect vows. On the actual wedding day, my brother-in-law showed up to take pictures before the ceremony without a tie and asked if his tux should have come with one. Alberto was right there and made some calls to find any store in the area that carried black ties. He ran out to the store that he found it in without a moments hesitation and got the black tie in time for the ceremony. I was absolutely floored. When I was thanking him for something that seemed above and beyond, he simply smiled and said, "That's what I'm here for."  The ceremony was perfect down to the last detail and all I have heard from family over the past two months was that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever seen. Our wedding was very simple but Alberto truly made our wedding day one that we will never forget. ~ Sean W.

Will and I are very happy. We would like to thank you very much for everything! The ceremony was beautiful and we will never forget it. Working with you was a pleasure! During our first meeting you came prepared with examples and presented them in a way that got our minds thinking about how we wanted the ceremony to go. The ceremony was so great! The way you assembled the thoughts, feelings and bits of us was so wonderful!! The ceremony couldn’t have been any more personal and touching. You were on top of everything from getting our answers to the questionnaire, to getting our vows in, and everything being laid out in an easy to understand format in the Wedding Ceremony draft. The rehearsal was perfect! We couldn’t have organized it without your help! The wedding day was great, the ceremony went wonderfully, and you were on task. I was never worried with you being as organized as you were! Our guests loved the ceremony. We received many compliments on how everything about the ceremony was so heart-felt and personal. It was about Will and Marie and not a generic ceremony.  Once again, thank you thank you thank you!!! We will be recommending you to all our friends and family who will get married in the future!
~ Marie and Will

Thank you for the wonderful ceremony you did for us. It was amazing. Our friends and relatives thought it was so well-written and kept asking, did he really write that himself? Some even thought we had known you for years! It was just beautiful and none of my friends had a dry eye... I loved how you incorporated my favorite readings and also shared additional information about us that made it so personal. The Time Capsule Ceremony was also such a fantastic idea! We are so glad you suggested that, and we had a really nice time writing it. In the midst of all the planning, when we sat down to write the love letter, it really calmed us down and helped us connect to each other again. After that, we felt like we didn't need to write our own vows; we poured everything into the letters. It was a great experience! Our friends and family also loved the concept and thought it was so romantic!  You really did such a fantastic job and were the perfect officiant for our wedding. Thanks for making our ceremony so memorable, personalized and unique--we couldn't have been happier. As you know, I couldn't keep the tears of happiness from flowing!  Thanks for everything, we will send you some photos soon!  Take care and thanks again for an amazing wedding ceremony!  Warm regards, ~ Kelly & Michael 

Alberto was the perfect officiant for our wedding! We met with him initially for 1 and 1/2 hours to discuss our ceremony details. He was patient, friendly, organized and offered a variety of suggestions. His website was also very informative and professional. We felt very comfortable and hired him that day. He also gave us a time capsule idea that was just the perfect accompaniment for our ceremony.  On the day of the ceremony, our friends and relatives thought the ceremony was so well-written and kept asking, did he really write that himself? Some even thought we had known you for years! We actually found him on Yelp! The ceremony was just beautiful and none of my friends had a dry eye... I loved how Alberto incorporated my favorite readings and also shared additional information about us that made it so personal.  The time capsule was also such a fantastic idea! My husband and I had a really nice time writing it two days before the wedding. In the midst of all the planning, when we sat down to write the love letter to place into the time capsule (to be opened along with a bottle of wine at our 5th wedding anniversary- another great idea from Alberto), it really calmed us down and helped us connect to each other again. After that, we felt that we didn't need to write our own vows, as we poured everything into the letters. It was a great experience! Our friends and family also loved the concept and thought it was so romantic! Alberto also has a great sense of humor and is so passionate about what he does. We couldn't find a better officient for our ceremony who could have made it so memorable, personalized and unique- we couldn't have been happier.

We truly enjoyed the ceremony and he accommodated us with all the last minute changes we made to the vows and ceremony. The initial meeting was great, as he answered all our questions and really got to know us and our needs. He quickly put our minds at ease and tailored he ceremony to fit our biracial, multi-religious needs. Although we were not very accessible and the time was too short, he was able to ensure we had all the details as per what we requested. We especially liked the various suggestions offered to us, to add more flavor and color to our vow exchange. The gifting of the flowers for Norma's mom, the moment of silence for all those who could not be present and the wonderful added humor bit was so well received by our guests and family members. Even our guests mentioned how his ease of changing between Spanish and English seemed so seamless and and so clear. The guests also had quite a good impression of him, as they remember him mingling with them.  been happier.

Thank you so much for all that you have done with our wedding. People said to me that you were great and wondered how I found you. I explained how I found you through the internet and met with you. I liked that we met a couple of times, so you could know us a little better to give the ceremony the personal touches. It was perfect!! I loved the fact that you gave so many options to choose and could tweak to fit us exactly. Being there at the rehearsal was great...thank you so much for that. The flow of everything at the rehearsal was wonderful and it helped so much for the day of the wedding to go without a hitch. I would definitely recommend you to others that are getting married. I can't wait to look at the wedding video of the ceremony.  ~ Michelle and Pedro Badillo

You made the entire wedding process so painless! Your meeting and rehearsal were great. I loved the fact that you gave me input on my vows. They were soooo much better after I incorporated your suggestions. (Will said he should've gotten your input, too...too late!!!! hahahah!). My parents loved you. I was a little nervous because we did not have a traditional Catholic ceremony, but you delivered a ceremony that was perfect for both Will's and my sides of the family. It had tradition, humor, and let us be ourselves. 
~ Cicelyn and William

Reverend Alberto was AWESOME as an officiant! My husband and I were raised under different Christian denominations. Reverend Alberto created a ceremony that incorporated our faith and traditions seamlessly. He was extremely thorough with his preparation for our wedding ceremony, and helped make that process a truly enjoyable one. What a wonderful experience. We highly recommend Kiss the Bride to anyone looking for a wedding officiant!!!!

I really want to thank you, Rev. Alberto, for making my day with my wife the best day of our lives. I'm really happy that I chose you and happy to have you on our wedding day. I really liked how organize you were and how you took a lot of your time to work with us and always remind us of what we needed for our wedding. If it wasn't for you maybe I would've forgotten everything! But thanks for keeping us in track with everything that needed to be done. Of course the day of our wedding went PERFECT. I couldn't ask for more. I really thank you again because you were a big big part of our wedding from marrying us to organizing it. I wish I could work with you again but I can't get married again lol.

(5-star review on Project Wedding)

I'm very very happy with the service from Rev. Alberto Alvarado! He was a really really organized person. First, we sat down to pretty much set the whole ceremony. About 2 weeks before our wedding, he sent us a really organized sheet with how the ceremony was gonna go. All we had to do is just add the little details and the day of the ceremony it was all done. I actually forgot to bring my vows and so did my wife, but luckily Rev. Alberto had it and really really made my day even brighter!!. Again, he is very very organized and the day of the ceremony he organized my groomsmen and bridesmaids and everything came out PERFECT. Again, thank you very much Rev. Alberto, and of course, I will recommend him to anyone. Much Love from Marco & Annabell Collazos Thanks for making our day even better...‎

We both feel that you did an amazing job. Having a wide variety of options to choose from was very welcome, and we feel that we were able to have the exact ceremony that we desired. The website was very comprehensive and helpful, too.  ~ Rachel and Alex

Angel and I wanted to thank you for your services. From our first meeting you made us feel very comfortable.  You were very organized in composing the ceremony that I left that day feeling more and more excited about the wedding.  The ceremony was customized perfectly; we couldn't have asked for more!  You were very helpfull throughout the whole time that lead up to the big day.  At first I felt we didn't need a rehearsal, but now I'm soo happy you recommended we have one because I wouldn't have been able to pull something off like that on my own, which was what I was planning on doing ( I don't

know what I was thinking:) ).  The day of the wedding the ceremony was perfect!  We got a lot of compliments from our friends and family.  Angel and I can both say that we would definitely recommend you to anyone who plans on getting married.  Thanks again for making our day more special than what it already was. ~ Natalie and Angel

This is Gabriela and Hugo, and we wanted to thank you for our ceremony this past Saturday. We were very pleased with the ceremony itself, and we heard a lot of comments of how much our guest liked it. They said it was simple, yet contained a lot of nice details that really made it personal. We appreciate your services and we will definitely recommend you to our friends and families. Thanks again! Best Regards, Mr. and Mrs. Tello

Thank you soo much.  We have heard such wonderful things about the wedding and ceremony. Even Mike's mom commented on how lovely it sounded in Spanish, even though she doesn't speak or understand Spanish! The first thing Mike and I noticed when meeting you was, "Wow, he's young!" I think that was what made us hit it off with you right away. We felt as if you would relate to us better and we could just be our "silly"selves, and the suggestion on using the Star Wars theme instead of the traditional march for the ceremony was cool, but we didn't want to scare our parents..sorry! Thanks for not pushing the religion part on us either. I know how I feel about it and what Mike's views are. No doubt our favorite part of the ceremony was the [Blended Family Unity Sand Ceremony]. It added the perfect touch in solidifying our family bond. Michael was so nervous that day, but has been calling Mike dad now. He's really happy about that!  Thank you soo much for being a part of our wedding, Rev. Alberto. We really appreciate it! Take care.
~ Maria and Mike Kingsbury

Our initial meeting with you was great. We felt it went smoothly, and we were comfortable talking with you. The information you provided for us was thorough. Although there was a little hiccup at the start of our rehearsal with the site of the ceremony, you gave us clear direction and we felt it went very well. Our friends and family kept telling us how beautiful and touching the ceremony was and we felt the same way. It was perfect. Michelle and I would definitely recommend you to other couples. ~ Marlod and Michelle Faustino

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

We were very pleased with your services, and our families commented on how you made the ceremony very special. From our initial phone conversation to the signing of the marriage license, there were no surprises. Jonathan and I were looking for someone affordable, and you turned out to be affordable, professional, friendly and accessible. I have already recommended your services to several brides!  ~ Nicole and Jonathan

Rev. Alberto performed our wedding ceremony about 2weeks ago. Wow were to begin.... hes fantastic!! He has such a soothing presence about him when we first met him we knew he was the officiant we wanted to perform our wedding. He listens carefully to what you want and makes suggestions based on that . We did alot of our communication on line via e-mail which worked best for us as well since I have a chaotic work schedule and lots of other appointments I had to take care of for the wedding. He was present for the rehearsal and the day day of the wedding on time smiling and ready to go cool as always .My family really appreciated the fact that he introduced himself to all of them (they are very old fashioned is bilingual a definite plus.Our ceremony was in English and Spanish. My husband and I would highly recommend Reverend Alberto for every ones wedding he can customize any couples needs perfectly!!

First, let me say that Rob and I could not have chosen a better person to perform our ceremony.  We simply did not want to choose someone to just perform our ceremony, but we wanted to find someone who we would enjoy working with, who would listen to our wishes and ideas, who would share their own insight into our ceremony and, the most important of all, someone who could smile and appreciate the lighter side of life. You were ALL of those! We were so pleased with the ceremony you put together for us and overjoyed at how well you were able to incorporate the handfasting ceremony and our handfasting vows into the whole process.  Everyone we spoke to said that they had never been to a wedding where they were so moved by the vows, both those of the traditional ceremony and handfasting, and most admitted they were teary eyed by the end.  That in itself speaks volumes to how well it was put together and presented by you. Thank you also for sharing in our smiles during the ceremony, when I just could not resist lightening the moment, and encouraging both of us by a mere glance when nerves took hold. Thank you again for making the beginning of our lives together so perfect! ~ Kit and Rob Batres

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Thank you for the beautiful ceremony. We got lots of compliments on the sweet ceremony, and of course, lots of happy tears. Several guests asked us how long we've known you, as we seemed to be old friends. That was the best thing we could have heard. Also, two guests asked about the hand ceremony, and one wanted the wording. As for us, we were really pleased that we were referred to as Life Partners and Best Friends. Ryan is still pleased about that. You were very nice, and guided us through the process of the ceremony. I was only familiar with Catholic ceremonies before, and I had no idea there were so many options. Thanks again,  ~ Isabel and Ryan

Fortino and I wanted to thank you for our beautiful wedding ceremony on 8/13! It was absolutely perfect. You made our day unforgettable. You really captured the feeling we wanted. All of our guests loved it and haven't stopped talking about it. They really enjoyed you and felt included in the ceremony. Everyone LOVED the love letter ceremony and really enjoyed the bilingual aspect. Working with you was the easiest part of the entire wedding planning process! We truly appreciated all of the ceremony options you offered. We don't have enough words to express our gratitude.
Reverend Alberto officiated our wedding on 8/13/2011 in Sonoma, CA. He did an excellent job! He helped us create a beautiful bilingual (English and Spanish) ceremony that reflected our relationship perfectly. We were able to custom design every part of our ceremony. ~ Heidi and Fortino

Rev. Alberto was a huge hit with our guests. They loved him! We have received so many compliments about him. Our guests felt included and special. Several guests said it was the best ceremony they had ever attended. They loved the flow from English to Spanish, the Hand Ceremony and the Love Letter Ceremony, which Rev. Alberto suggested. I highly recommend Rev. Alberto! He made our day so special! He is extremely professional and kind.~Heidi and Fortino


~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Maria and I both feel that the way you handled our wedding ceremony was both professional and personal. The initial meeting was very pleasant, and you made both of us very comfortable that you were there to listen to our needs. There was never any point where I felt you were imposing your beliefs or looking at us with indifference. You were very thoughtful, attentive to our needs and made wonderful suggestions regarding the customization of our ceremony (Ex: Blended Family and Unity Candle Lighting) you were also able to accommodate both of our families needs by considering and including a bilingual translation for some parts of the ceremony. Upon receipt of the first draft of our ceremony, myself and Maria were pleased. Only a few minor corrections were needed and you handled that very promptly. The day of the Ceremony was spectacular!!! The ceremony went on as scheduled and aside from being a VERY HOT day seemed to flow along very nicely. Maria & I feel truly blessed and thank GOD for having you assist us with the wedding ceremony. We would highly recommend you for anyone considering Wedding Ceremony Services. You are a true professional!  ~ Maria and Marcos Villagran

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Miguel and I were both very happy with the wedding ceremony you conducted for us. Everything went just as we had expected and hoped. The initial meeting with you was great, you really took all opinions into consideration and gave us a ceremony that we were completely happy with. You were awesome on giving your opinions and ideas as well as helping with music selections and other little details we needed. The rehearsal went well, although the wedding party was tough, it was much needed and put together well. The wedding ceremony was great. I will never forget the words we exchanged and how grateful my mom was when I went and thanked her for everything. That was a great part of the ceremony that I will hold in my heart forever. My family was very content how you worked in both languages for us. Overall the ceremony was great and we could not have asked for anything better. You are a great Reverend and to be quite honest, you are the only wedding vendor I would and HAVE recommended to other friends and family. Thank you so much for all your help.  ~ Crystal and Miguel Lustre

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

We felt very good about our initial meeting with you, you have always been very kind and polite and project a strong sense of care and sincerity. The Wedding that you helped us customize was wonderful, you had the greatest of ideas, and allowed room for personal adjustments. The Ceremony went perfect, and your patience and flexibility made it fall perfectly into place. You're the best! We would definitely recommend you to others, because of how wonderful you are as a person and as a reverend, you do a perfect service, much better than we could have imagined, and the talent that you possess is grand. You were definitely perfect for us, especially with the ability to perform a perfect and special wedding ceremony in both Spanish & English. It as though you are gifted from God to perform special events.  ~ Scott and Sonia Cunningham

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

I think I can speak for all of us involved in the wedding when I say you did a great job. I was very impressed with the time you took to talk to us and get to know us at our initial meeting. I felt you really listened to what we had to say. As for the ceremony, many said it was moving and very romantic. I agree. It was really very nice to have it custom designed for us and that made it all the more special. What I appreciate the most is the time you took to make it our ceremony and go with the flow as we made some last minute changes. It was great that you were not stuck to some traditional way to do a wedding and were very flexible.
~ Jennifer and Steven Botts

  ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

We thoroughly enjoyed our entire experience with you. From our initial meeting we felt like you had a good understanding of what and how we wanted our ceremony to go. You were very well prepared with suggestions and samples of previous ceremonies that you have preformed. You gave us a lot of insight as to how this process takes place and you offered us specific reading types that really made our ceremony more special and personal to us. Our rehearsal seemed to fly by like a breeze and you were very in control with what needed to be done so everything went smoothly. During our actual ceremony (on our wedding) we both feel like you engaged the audience's attention, kept it light and to the plan and included the airplanes flying over head into our wedding verses. You made our wedding so special! You were very friendly, informative and professional throughout the entire process which gave Jason and me complete confidence in you and put us at ease. You were simply wonderful Rev. Alberto and we can’t thank you enough for all you did. We would more than recommend you and your company to anyone; and I already have!
~ Lindsey and Jason Tifft

~~~ ~~~ ~~~
If you are looking for someone to perform your ceremony, I highly recommend Rev. Alberto. When I met with him to discuss his services, I was met with a warm smile and immediately felt at ease. He took the time to explain all the ways his wedding ceremonies can be customized to anyone's specific tastes or preferences. He was patient when I asked a million questions and the thing I liked the most is that he genuinely seems to care about the entire process, he is not there to just show up at your event the day of (unless, of course, that is what YOU want) but he is there beforehand to meet with you, to answer any questions regarding any detail of your wedding and to get your sense of style so your ceremony is a true reflection of you. If you are still not sure, give him a call and you will find out for yourself that he will help make your special day even better! ~ Amy Frugoli, Wedding Planner, Twitterpated Weddings

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Thank you sooooo much for your services! Everything was perfect! Our friends and family really enjoyed the ceremony. I've had quite a few friends request your contact information for their own weddings. I believe a friend of mine will be contacting you this week in regards to her wedding in June. I really appreciated the time and care that you put into creating a beautiful ceremony tailored to Johnnie and my needs. You also were very patient during the rehearsal and made sure you explained everything crystal clear. Overall it was truly a great experience!  ~ Brandy and Johnnie Mitchell

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Thank you, thank you very much for leading our wedding.  We really appreciated so much and of course both our parents.  Everyone loved you. Everyone told us we found such a wonderful and talented officiant. And everyone was amazed you knew everything about us !! That was really true. We were amazed, too!!  We had some interviews with officiants, but we couldn't find anyone who we liked or interested. So, we were worried if we could find or not and we asked Donna and she recommended you to us. we were really lucky we could find you!!  Thank you very much again.  Please keep your stile and make many many couples happy!!!!  ~ Yumi & Aaron

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

We wanted to thank you so much for a great ceremony! We really enjoyed your services. It was a pleasure for us and we thought everything you said was a fit for us. You gave us many options and were flexible with our requests.  ~ Lucia and Jonathan Rogerson

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

We initially selected you because from your photo you appeared jovial and pleasant. We wanted a simple easy going ceremony, and were pleased with your approach to finding out what we would like and putting together a very nice ceremony that was a very good fit for us. You did a great job of matching the ceremony to our desires and preferences, while also making plenty of suggestions for things we may not have thought of such as the sand ceremony, which we were glad to have in addition to those parts we expected. We enjoyed looking for the materials, and having more participation for our children. We will gladly recommend you to anyone looking for an officiant.  ~ Michal and Martina

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Germain and I are very satisfied and happy with the way our ceremony turned out. Up to this day we still get compliments on how beautiful the ceremony was and how they've never seen one like it. We are very pleased with your service and think that everything was perfect. You and Rev. Rafael are extremely kind and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  ~ Esmeralda and Germain Soriano

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Officiated our wedding in September 08-turned out wonderful!
Easy to work with, personal service and attention to the details! Made our day easy and special with his personal touches! Always on time, great price, and very professional! Made our guests laugh and cry!!!
Highly recommend Kiss The Bride!! Even provided helpful links and information for after we were married, such as name change information and more!! THANK YOU!!!  

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

I want to thank you for the wonderful job that you did at our wedding. We received many compliments about what a wonderful ceremony it was. I was so happy that I was able to include some traditional elements and how well you did at tying it all in. I am very happy.  Thank you so much and we will definitely recommend you to any new engaged couples that come our way!  ~ Emma and Gerardo Nuñez

This review is long overdue but I want to thank you for the wonderful job that you did at our wedding. Upon our first meeting, we knew that we were not going to look any further for an officiant. In fact, you were the only one we interviewed. You were very patient and had such a wonderful demeanor that we felt we didn't need to look for anyone else. We were able to meet before the wedding at which time you gave me so many wonderful tips for the day of the wedding. The vows you wrote for us were so beautiful and we received many compliments about how wonderful the ceremony was. We were so happy that we were able to include some traditional elements and how well you did at tying it all in. I can't thank you enough; you were patient, professional, caring, and just plain wonderful!!!

I hope that you are well. Luke and I just got back from our honeymoon and had a wonderful time. We cannot thank you and Rev. Carolina enough -- you both were amazing and the wedding would not have been the same without either of you. Rev. Carolina was a great calming force to me as we had a couple stressful things occur on Friday and Saturday (as happens with all weddings I would imagine!) and it was great to have her there to remind me about what was important. Every aspect of your service was impeccable!!!
~ Catherine and Luke

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

It was a pleasure working with you. Moses and I would just like to thank you again for everything. The ceremony was magnificent. Both our families were pleased with the ceremony. So far the marriage is great. Thank you again!!  ~ Candace and Moses Delgado

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

We had Reverend Alberto officiate our wedding a few weeks ago. Before the wedding, we met with him once, and all communication from then on was via e-mail (which is how I prefer it). When we first met him, he seemed laid back and friendly, which matches our personalities pretty well, so we booked him. He is always responsive to e-mails, and he will answer any questions you might have. Like the other reviewer said, he is willing to work with people to customize the ceremony to their needs/wants. I think we were pretty annoying about making changes, but he took it all in stride anyway. The day of the wedding, he was on time, and did a great job. My husband and I would definitely recommend him. ~ Emily C 

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

We got so many compliments on your service. Everyone including us thought the ceremony was perfect, we loved the way we personalized it the way we wanted to. It wasn't too formal and we got to put a little humor in it, which was just our style. Dustin and I want to thank you for everything. Our ceremony was beautiful!
~ Dustin and Jessica Taylor

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Hi! I thought everything was great! From the beginning to the end. I loved our ceremony, the choices available to help us decide, the website was a HUGE help. Being bilingual made it truly memorable so that is a huge value to us. Everyone really enjoyed the ceremony and I felt I got A+++ service and I will be putting that on Yelp as well as my planning website.
~ Julia de Aguillón and Diego Aguillón García


I had Rev. Alberto perform my September ceremony and everything was excellent. From the early stages he was an excellent consultant, offering ideas and suggestions to help us with the customization of our ceremony. A scheduling oversite caused him to not be available for our rehersal but he quickly remedied the problem by having a substitute for us and the communication between her and Alberto was seamless. I give him no lower mark for that because things happen and the problem was remedied to my satisfaction and there was no problems in the end because of it. Our ceremony was bilingual and Rev. Alberto knows how to do it so it's not too long or boring. My guests all commented on what a great ceremony it was and it totally fit our style.

Also, we are in Washington so he did phone consultations with us during the planning and I never felt like I didn't have his full attention or felt rushed. He was outstanding!! He also has a great website and exellent resources he will make available to you after you book him for your ceremony that really make things easy! Make your ceremony one of a kind and trust in Rev. Alberto!!

Hi, we wanted to thank you for doing such a great job!  We thought the ceremony turned out very beautiful and well put together.  Thank you.  ~ Tiffany and Gustavo Ocon

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Stan and and I would like to express our most sincere thank you and appreciation for all that you did on our behalf. The ceremony was indeed a blessing from above, and our families were delighted by the personal touch, the thoughtful words, and the meaningful rituals.  From the very beginning, Rev. Carolina and you made us feel very comfortable planning our wedding by helping us explore the different types of ceremonies, choosing the appropriate rituals, and writing our vows. Not only were we impressed with the ceremony but also by your professionalism and your website.  Also, thank you for getting our marriage certificate in the mail, it got to us within a week. Once again, thanks for the hard work you have put into this special day and for sharing this joyous moment with us.  ~ Stan and Adriana

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Thank you again for performing such a lovely ceremony for us! We've received many compliments on your behalf and will definitely recommend you with high regards!  ~ Teri and Chip Utley

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

We really enjoyed working with you. You were such a blessing. Our first meeting, I was nervous. But after talking with you and getting to know you, Luis and I were very happy with our choice. The ceremony was beautiful. When I read the first draft I cried. You did an awesome job. Then with the little mix up that we had with the whole ceremony being bilingual, you were great and did a little fixing on the wedding day. You were perfect and the ceremony too! And you were great helping us out with the lineup, and making sure that everything was going as planned.

Thank you again Rev Alberto you did a fantastic job definetly recommendable. You made things very easy for us with the rehearsel and all the steps. Thanks for everything again.  ~Joe and Maria Portillo

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Straight to the point...Rev. Alberto did a great Job! My hubby and I just got married in 8/2009. Totally Satisfied!!!! The ceremony turned out better than expected! Rev. Alberto gave us many options for the ceremony and customized it to our liking. It was easy to get in contact (phone and via email) with him when I made changes (fyi, he was very flexibly with changes). I highly recommend him.  ~ Evelia Ramirez

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Your services were outstanding. Your flexibility was key for me. My wife said that your web site was super helpful. Your clean and professional demeanor was refreshing. As for the ceremony it was more pleasent than the both of us anticipated. Many thanks.  ~ Lt. GalvezIf there were 10 stars to give I would! Rev. Alberto was the Officiant at my wedding 2 weeks ago. When all is said and done and I reflect on the vendors I used, Alberto stands out on top for sure! I found him on Yelp and based on all the reviews decided to contact him. I must say there is a reason for all the raving reviews (now I am one of them)! In our first meeting we nailed the entire ceremony, it was a breeze and he walked us through every step at our pace. He was prompt with e-mail response and came prepared to the rehearsal! I didn't have to remember or do anything, he had all the answers my site coordinator needed. Rev. Alberto preformed the ceremony flawlessly, his tone and pace was very pleasant and not rushed. Thank you Rev. Alberto! Rob and I are very happy to have had you perform our ceremony!

Thank you so much for all you added to our wonderful day. SO many people complimented us on our choice of officiant saying you did a wonderful job, and had a great sense of humor. Nic was able to calm himself down after chuckling to your 'do you know what you are getting into?' joke.  We appreciated the tempo as well - not too fast, not too slow.  I felt very comfortable knowing you knew what we wanted, and just following your lead on that day. I was so nervous, but you had a very calming, and comfortable demeanor. I would rate our experience with you as A+.From the first meeting to the ceremony you asked questions about what we wanted, and gave suggestions without ever letting us forget that this is our day. There are so many things I didn't think of that you were able to bring to mind. I appreciated all your hard work with the drafts of our ceremony, and how quickly you were able to get the revisions back to me for review.  We would recommend you.  Very informative (I really appreciated all the resources on your website), professional and great sense of humor.  ~ Mandy and Nic Briseño (5-star review on Project Wedding)

Nos gusto mucho la ceremonia. Tambien a mis tios, los que hicieron el video y fotos, porque eyos se dedican a hacer quinceañeras y bodas etc., y dicen que nunca habian conocido a alguien como usted. Pero si, muy bonito todo, gracias y no mas miro mi video de bodas y empiezo a llorar de nuevo.
Translation: We liked the ceremony a lot. So did my uncles who made the video and took the pictures. They do a lot of Quinceañeras and weddings, etc., and they say they had never met anyone like you.  Yes, it was all very nice, thank you, and whenever I watch my wedding video I just start crying all over again.

The first time we set an appointment with you, we knew you're the right person to entrust the ceremony. You welcomed us with a warm smile & explained to us patiently all the options available. I made several corrections with the ceremony but you were so open to it & gave us suggestions too. It was really great. The ceremony was so solemn, you made all the emphasis to make it so romantic for us. You were a big part of the success. We received a lot of complements in your behalf. Everybody loved it. You even gave very helpful tips before the wedding. We will definitely recommend you with high regards. Excellent service! Thank you so much.  ~ Shirleen and Allan (5-star review on Project Wedding)

Hi,thank you so much. It was a wonderful ceremony. When we first met you the whole meeting went very well. That is what made us decide to go with you.

It was a very special day and I was glad you were the one able to share it with us.  ~ Erica and Ahmad Fuller

Just wanted to thank you for the nice ceremony you performed for us. We received alot of complements on how beautiful the words were. We appreciate you working with us in getting the words to the ceremony just as we wanted. Again, thank you.  ~ Cesar and Marta Castaneda

Working with Rev. Alberto was definitely a pleasure. My husband and I couldn't have chosen a better wedding officiant to preside over our ceremony. He helps you to personalize your ceremony so that it's comfortable and memorable for the both of you. You definitely won't go wrong by choosing him as your officiant.  ~ Mary C

Thank you for your service that you gave to us and the help and contribution to make our wedding possible. We are very happy with the outcome of it and our families said that it was a very beautiful ceremony.
~ Lucero and Miguel

I wanted to thank Reverend Carolina for the great job she did during our ceremony. Angela and I agree that you guys did a great job preparing and performing our marriage ceremony. ~ Claudio & Angela

Thank you so much for your services! We really enjoyed the ceremony as did all of our guests! We got many, many good responses regarding the ceremony. They loved your tone, voice, how smooth it went and of course being bilingual, as many didn't expect it to be bilingual, they were very much appreciative. As for our initial meeting, we both feel it was very helpful! Especially for Lonnie, as he didn't expect all that we discussed in the meeting. He did not not realize all that a ceremony enteiles, until you helped explain in detail each portion. We both loved that it was totally customized by us and what we wanted and on the day of the wedding, we felt it went so well! Also, your drafts that you sent were so detailed and actually helped me for my own knowledge as to what was going to happen and in what order! Thanks for that, as it helped for my rehearsal and for my coordinator, who I gave a copy too as well. Overall, aside from the little mishaps which every wedding is bound to have, we had a great wedding! I loved everthing about our day and the highlight was definitly the ceremony (and the cars!) =) I would definitly recommend you to others for their wedding services, as you were great! Thank you so much for everything, you made our day real special!
~ Christy & Lonnie

Reverend was perfect. The ceremony was amazing. Justin and I have been raving about his services ever since the first day. He could not have been more through even though it was just a consultation. Very impressive. The rehearsal was perfect and the wedding day was more perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better match!! Our guest were very impressed with him. I am so glad you were our reverend, we couldn't have found anyone more perfect to marry us than you were. It was truly a pleasure. Thank you! 
~ Angel and Justin

We were extremely happy with the services you provided.  Everything went smoothy and all enjoyed themselves.  Thanks again. ~ Alfred and Ma Isabel

Reverend Alberto was a wonderful officiant. He recently officiated our wedding and we couldn't have been happier. I guess the first thing we noticed about him was his ability to really organize our wedding ceremony. We had the reception timeline well sorted out but the wedding ceremony itself (at the time of our first meeting with the reverend) was still pretty unorganized. He sat down with us and provided us with a structured timeline based on our needs and wants, our religious associations, etc. I remember going into the meeting feeling a little nervous about our ceremony in its current state, but when we sat down with him all of that went away. He is very personable organized, punctual and friendly. I definitely recommend him for any wedding. Thanks Rev!  ~The Hughes'

EVERYONE said that our ceremony was the most beautiful, thoughtful and meaningful ceremony they have ever attended. Thank you. ~ Andrea and Guillermo

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Reverend Alberto was the best. We had him make us a bilingual ceremony, that was unique for us. He did a sensational job. He was very patient and answered all of our questions, and he walked us through everything. He left no room for us to make mistakes. So happy for his service.
~ Flor and Luis (5-star review on Wedding Wire)

Rev Alberto is an all around Professional! We had the privilege of having him officiate at our wedding about a week ago. He was very flexible to our needs, and he delivered an exceptional ceremony. We strongly recommend Rev. Alberto for any wedding.

We just wanted to say thank you so much. It was a beautiful ceremony. Our family and friends said it was one of the best ceremonies. They loved the blending of the family most of all.  Thanks again. You will be getting a 5 star from me on yelp. ;-)  ~ Lisa Salazar

We were so lucky to have found Rev. Alberto and Rev. Carolina. When we first met them it was almost 9 months before our wedding and they were great. They are so well prepared. They gave us great ideas and really made us feel comfortable. In the upcoming weeks of our wedding they prepared a beautiful ceremony. Rev. Carolina married us and she was great. Our family is kinda crazy and Rev. Carolina just went with is. This was a great wedding. All our friends and family said it was one of the best weddings ever. Thank you to Kiss the Bride. I would highly recommend them. ~ Lisa M

Everything was great. Rev. Carolina was very nice & gave a beautiful ceremony. I really like how helpful & prompt you guys are. i will definitely refer Kiss the bride to other couples. ~ Selene Valencia

You guys were great! I would not have changed a thing. From the first meeting down to the last detail (marriage certificate) - it was absolutely perfect. Thank you again so much and please relay my special thanks to Rev. Shane for the wonderful ceremony - it was truly beautiful. I would recommend you in a heartbeat! ~ Diana and Phil Melegrito

We would like to thank you for making this whole process as smooth as possible. All the follow up meetings and emails helped us get through the rest of our wedding plans without stressing about how the ceremony would turn out. The way we were able to pick and choose, customized how we wanted our ceremony made us feel at ease. The assistance you provided on the days leading up to our wedding day was very helpful and we would highly recommend you to other couples. ~ Robert and Alma Traylor

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

I really want to say thank you. The ceremony was Great. Everyone enjoyed it. They have told me that they've never seen a wonderful ceremony as ours. It was customized just as we wanted it. If we had to do it over again, we would do it the same way. :)  Our initial meeting went well....you helped us with all our needs with everything. I felt very comfortable, excited and confident on my wedding day. Again, I want to say thank you. You made me Happy. And like you said: There was magic in the air.
~ Emily and Daniel

Thank you for officiating at our wedding. It turned out very nice. A lot of guests said they really liked the ceremony.  ~  Susan and Ted

~~~ ~~~ ~~~

You were great on our wedding day! When we first called you we were super stressed and nervous, but after talking felt much better and ready to enjoy our wedding! We really don't know what we would have done without your help and professionalism at the last minute. You helped us every step of the way and gave us amazing ideas like giving the roses to our Moms - which both of them were more than happy for that!  Since we didn't have a rehearsal the night before Matt and I were very nervous before the ceremony but everything worked perfectly and you made us both feel so comfortable. I'm so glad we contacted you because my Mom does not speak English and she was able to understand our wedding ceremony.  You even brought someone to take photos of the ceremony! Our family members all commented on what a wonderful ceremony we had! We will gladly recommend you to anyone! Thanks. ~ Vicky and Matt Brasher

Our meeting with you was excellent. You provided a great detail of information and in detail. You gave us a lot of options to work with and a lot of details (vows and such) to choose from. You made us feel comfortable. The wedding day was great except for my sister-in-law making it late. You did a fantastic job keeping us calm and give us the info on where to start also a great job on the ceremony went off without a hitch. I would recommend you anytime if someone asked.  Thank you for everything for dealing with all the changes with people and with the ceremony. We enjoyed having you as our reverend. ~ Angelica and Mark

Alberto was a great officiant. We only met once before the wedding, but during our meeting he was professional, straight-forward, and really friendly--someone I felt comfortable being around. My fiancee and I both really liked him. He did a wonderful job of helping us tailor our ceremony to make it feel like ours, email conversations with him were smooth, and he made very good suggestions about the custom vows my husband and I wrote. On the day of the wedding he showed up with plenty of time to spare, looked nice, and delivered the ceremony perfectly. I would definitely recommend Alberto if you are looking for a wedding officiant!  ~ Wendy

From Josh: I personally would say 5 stars all they way down.... Jess feels the same way!! We were both totally and completely satisfied with the way the ceremony turned out and we've heard nothing but great things from everyone that attended.
From Jessica:  Rev, you were great! Everyone was impressed with you, and thought you were very professional and perfect for us! We were lucky to have found you, considering the lack of notice, and the initial meeting was more than sufficient with the follow up emails being prompt and effective! Like Josh said, we give you 5 stars, and will highly recommend you to anyone out in cali who happens to be getting married!                                             ~ Jessica & Josh Gant
