Outstanding doesn't do it justice - Dominic blew us away at our wedding wedding ceremony. Over the past year, we spoke with Dominic multiple times (we're planners), as he always made himself available, and was very patient with us as we described our perfect ceremony, talked... Read More about our love story, and asked a TON of questions. My wife and I are of different religions and it was important to us that we kept religion out of the ceremony and just focused on the two of us and our love. Dominic appreciated all of our concerns and made the ceremony as we envisioned it. We could not have asked for a more beautiful night; Everything went EXACTLY how we had hoped. We cannot thank him enough for being a part of our special day.

We had to part ways with our officiant 1 week before our wedding. We thought we wouldn't be able to find a replacement officiant in time for the wedding. Thank God for South Florida Officiants and the officiant, Ralph Liotta, that we got in contact with. Despite the short prep... Read More time, he was in constant contact with us and was always available to discuss our needs. He provided a tailored, amazing, ceremony that felt like it was done by someone that knew us for years. He was extremely flexible and was able to work with all our needs. On the day of the ceremony he was punctual and professional and helped create a wedding that we will never forget. He was worth every penny and then some. We highly recommend!

Disfruté cada segundo de la ceremonia. Todos nuestros invitados siguieron el curso de la ceremonia sin problemas, y nos felicitaron por el buen trabajo que hizo el Reverendo Ramiro. Quería agradecerle por el momento tan maravilloso que nos hizo pasar y desearle todo lo mejor. I had the pleasure of meeting Reverend Ramiro Malagon from South Florida Officiants by phone during the wedding planing and in person days before the wedding. Our experience could not be better and at a very affordable price. My husband and I live out of Miami and Ramiro was there for us all the time. He quickly responded our calls and emails very and helped us resolve lots of questions he had regarding the marriage certificate and bureaucracy. He also gave us good advice on how to plan and conduct a bilingual ceremony. He incorporated all our requests and performed a very beautiful and romantic bilingual ceremony, with rituals of both cultures (unity sand ceremony, arras, vows). I enjoyed every second of it. All our guests followed the ceremony at all times without feeling confused, and they congratulated us on Ramiro's work at the ceremony. I wanted to thank Ramiro for such wonderful time and wish him all the best. Tamara & Paul
