We contacted Pastor Carlos 2 weeks before our wedding looking for an officiant at the last minute. He got back to us promptly, met us the next day, and walked us through all the options he was happy to provide to make our ceremony special even though it was such short notice! After a couple of phone calls, he gave us a beautiful ceremony that was exactly what we wanted! He really put us at ease through the ceremony and we were able to enjoy every minute of it!

Pastor Carlos was amazing - we couldn't have found a better person for our wedding. Before the ceremony, he provided us with so many ideas, and the time he spent with us helped us create something that was unique and perfect. His advice and guidance took so much stress out of everything; with so many other things to worry about, it was great to know that we could count on our pastor. When the big day came, his presence ensured that everything went perfectly. Having a good officiant for your wedding is so important, and he is the best!

Pastor Carlos was awesome to work with and would recommend him to anyone! We were planning a destination wedding in San Diego and he helped eliminate our stress by making the process as smooth as possible. We met a few times in person, talked many times over the phone and via email and the end result was a very detailed and personal ceremony that we wanted and our guests greatly appreciated. You and your guests won’t be disappointed. Thank you Pastor Carlos!

Pastor Carlos was professional, attentive and detailed which is exactly what we needed for the wedding. He read every single emailed and answered every single question. He met with the bride and groom and put together a ceremony that fit them like a glove. His words and character kind and inspiring. He called me when he was on his way to the ceremony like I asked and I was so appreciative of this. I would highly recommend Pastor Carlos over and over again!

Recommendation - Ben & Ashley
(La Jolla Beach - On The Rocks, La Jolla, CA)
Pastor Carlos first caught my eye in a photo of his that links to his website. It is of him marrying a couple. Carlos is smiling, the husband is smiling, and the bride is bent over in laughter at the altar. As soon as I saw that I knew that he would be the perfect officiant for our big day. He seemed to fit our easy-going, fun, laid back lifestyle just from his pictures. From my inquiry on day one I received continual feedback and help with the process of starting our ceremony. Since we live in Minnesota and Carlos in California, it was very helpful to hear back via phone and email so promptly. Having never met in person, he showed up and met my husband on our wedding day and they went to the ceremony site (beach) together. The ceremony he wrote was perfect and I couldn't imagine it going any better than it did. He was considerate, fair and kind. He went out of his way to help us even on days that he had to officiate two weddings! So, a big thanks to Pastor Carlos!
Recommendation - Joe & Amanda

(Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Solana Beach, CA)
Out of all the elements at our wedding we received more compliments on our ceremony than anything else. Carlos managed to create one of the most personal, heartfelt ceremonies that we, or any of our guests, had ever heard. After our initial meeting with Carlos it was a no-brainer that we would hire him. He was outgoing and fun and we knew he'd be a perfect fit for us. We started out with his pre-marital counseling session and it was great. It was really in-depth and we walked out with a lot more information than we expected. I definitely recommend it to everyone. I can't sing enough praise for Carlos, and I can't imagine our wedding without him. THANK YOU!!
Recommendation - Miguel & Debra

Pastor Carlos was a wonderful asset to our wedding. We knew he was the one for us the first day we met him at a local coffee shop for an interview. His story and family touched our hearts. He was always within an email or phone calls reach and offered as much support along the way with planning etc as he could. He wrote a beautiful ceremony for us and was able to include everything we asked for. He was prompt to the ceremony and helped the lead the way with the groomsmen and wedding party. We couldn't have asked for a better person to marry us off. Thank you Pastor Carlos for everything, we can't wait to share our family success with you in the future!
Recommendation - John & Debra

Pastor Carlos was really great. He provided us with pledges and vows that we could alter to our personal needs and wants. He was very open to using whatever we wanted said in our wedding ceremony and gave us personal attention making us feel like we were the only two that mattered on that day. His personality is one of quiet confidence making us confident that we would have anything we wanted in our ceremony and letting us know that we could depend on him to guide us through the ceremony and that it would all turn out well. We are very impressed with his kindness and professionalism and we feel very lucky to have found him. We wholeheartedly refer him to anyone who wants that personal touch to their wedding with a Pastor that really cares about us and the memories he helped us make on that day.
Recommendation - Jericho & Holly

Pastor Carlos did an amazing job incorporating all of our wishes and made the ceremony flow smoothly. We wanted to add a tea ceremony portion since I am Vietnamese and Pastor Carlos reviewed the references and did a beautiful job describing the meaning of the tea ceremony to our guest. His words were so lovely that it made our guest tear up throughout the ceremony.

Its rare when you meet a complete stranger and feel 100% comfortable within a few seconds, Pastor Carlos is one of those people. Upon meeting him my husband and I knew that he would be the perfect person for helping us take the next chapter in our lives. He has to be one of the most genuinely kind spirited persons I've ever come across in my life. He is not only warm, he is knowledgable, and easy going which helped make our wedding more stress free.
I can only hope to work with Pastor Carlos in the near future.

When my husband and I started looking for an officiant for our wedding ceremony, only Pastor Carlos got back to us promptly. We knew he was very busy just based on his Facebook page with all the activities he's involved in and all the traveling he does. That same week we met with him. My husband and I both liked him right away and decided to book him the same night. The planning stage went smoothly because Pastor Carlos was very organized and sensitive to our needs. On our wedding day I was getting a little nervous and emotional while walking on the aisle. Pastor Carlos' voice and smile were very reassuring. It was a beautiful ceremony and I give all the credit to Pastor Carlos! I will definitely spread the word about him among my family and friends.

You're absolutely amazing Pastor Carlos! Cream of the crop!
Our wedding was just this August and I've been wanting to write the best review for Pastor Carlos, because he truly deserves it...from the first moment we met, knew I wanted to work with him. I have to say he was slightly out of our budget, but in retrospect TOTALLY worth every penny. He is professional, responds quickly to every question or concern, and best of all he has so much experience that he will make you feel so comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire process. Best of all...Pastor Carlos put together an unforgettable, custom made, tear jerker, perfect ceremony for us.
I would absolutely, without a shadow of a doubt recommend Pastor Carlos to anyone getting married - ever!
You're in our hearts forever, thank you!

Recommendation - Seth & Crystal
(Martin Johnson House, La Jolla, CA)
Pastor Carlos officiated our June 25th wedding. It was one of the best decisions we made in the whole vendor process. From our first meeting, he put my husband and I at ease and knew the correct questions to ask. Pastor Carlos was willing to tailor the ceremony to our wants and needs, and came up with some really great ideas. My husband is less religious than I am, and our ceremony was perfect for both of us. Something important that I would like to note is that Pastor Carlos was extremely professional. He had excellent communication, a fact that a busy bride will appreciate. He came dressed in a suit, he speaks clearly and we had many, many compliments on our ceremony.
Recommendation - Dennis & Ryndi

We were very pleased with our ceremony! He did a fantastic job getting to know us and presenting that in the ceremony for our guests to experience. It was very easy to relay our wishes to Carlos. We also did premarital counseling with him which helped us to prepare for our life together but also let Carlos have a glimpse at our lives and love for each other. He did exactly what we asked for and our guests and family are still talking about how well he wrote and presented the ceremony for us.

We loved our wedding day, and how well it all went. It exceeded all of our pre-conceived notions of how our ceremony would be like. All of our guests loved it too, and said they liked how genuine and sincere you where, and even wondered if you where somehow related to us! Thank you Pastor Carlos, for making our wedding ceremony more wonderful than we could ever imagine.
Recommendation - Jason & Jori

Pastor Carlos is wonderful. We met with him and booked him to be our officiant about 12 months prior to our wedding. Throughout the 12 months he remained in touch with us. Any email I sent was responded to within hours. He helped us layout our ceremony and provided us with many options. The day of the ceremony he was absolutely wonderful. The ceremony he performed was flawless and exactly what the two of us wanted. The most important part was that you could see on his face and hear in his voice how happy he was for us and that he was loving being there. An amazing officiant! Thank you so much!
Recommendation - Kevin & Kelly

Carlos wrote a beautiful ceremony for us and made our wedding day so special. We could not be happier with his services. Pastor Carlos makes you feel so comfortable when you meet him. You feel as though you have known him your entire life. Following our ceremony our guests made multiple comments about how beautiful the ceremony turned out and how professional and well-spoken Carlos is. His smile alone made the ceremony so happy. Carlos was flexible, responsive to our questions, and is always very friendly.

Thanks for the awesome ceremony. It was just what we wanted. We really appreciate the flexibility with the DJ. We were very impressed that you were able to guide him through the ceremony while still doing what you needed to do and didn't miss a beat - thank you. This made everything look seamless. There were some challenges with the DJ and I am convinced that if you were not there, it could have been a disaster. We were very happy with your meetings with us and your consistent communication. With you, we never had to worry that anything was miscommunicated or was not on time line. As with all the other things that go along with preparing a wedding, it was comforting that we never had to worry about anything that you were a part of.

Pastor Carlos officiated our wedding on April 3th, 2011. We could not have had anyone do a better job, than what he did. It was a beautiful ceremony and one that was carefully planned and orchestrated by Pastor Carlos and ourselves. We were very happy with how everything turned out and the ceremony far exceeded our expectations!

Fourteen years ago Carlos married my wife and me. He honored us by coming to North Carolina to perform the ceremony and did a wonderful job of capturing our hearts and wishes in the ceremony. A very good listener, Carlos surprised us with mention of key points that we hadn't thought to address; but he had the insight to "hear."
Personable, professional and humble, Carlos really cares to do a great job.
Recommendation - Kevin & Laurie

Pastor Carlos did an amazing job for us. We wanted a wedding on the beach but live in Wisconsin. Pastor Carlos was very helpful from providing numerous suggestions on locations, ceremony options to where to obtain the marriage license. He was very easy to work with even though we were 2,000 miles away. His professionalism, organization, thoroughness and attention to detail was great. We could not have asked for a better ceremony. A beautiful sunny day, the small park over looking the beach and a pastor that provided a great meaningful message. Thanks Pastor Carlos for making us feel special on our wedding day.

My fiancé and I wanted the feel of a church wedding but neither one of us belonged to a specific church. Pastor Carlos offered suggestions but allowed us to make the ceremony very personal at the same time. He has a warm, friendly personality and makes you feel as though you've known him all your life. We are extremely grateful to Pastor Carlos for all his personal attention and for being such an important part of our beautiful day.

(Bali Hai Restuarent,San Diego, CA)
My husband and I owe Pastor Carlos many thanks. First, and most importantly, Pastor Carlos made our wedding unforgettable. He put so much work in to our ceremony to reflect our personalities while upholding the sacredness of marriage. We laughed, and cried, mostly cried, his words were so poetic and meaningful. He was able to pers...onally touch over 150 people and was pivotal in uniting our two families. In looking through our pictures, I makes me so happy that Carlos’ smiling face is peeking out between us during our ceremony. Secondly, my husband and I went through his marriage counseling. Carlos gave us the tools to communicate, compromise and continue our journey together. We had a couple very touchy subjects that with his help, we have worked out seamlessly. He is very wise when it comes to household budgets, raising a family and being a good spouse all while intertwine God’s love. He says that a marriage of two chord, you and your husband, is more easily broken than marriage of three chords, you, your husband and God. This is true, but I think in our case we have a marriage consisting of 4 chords, me, Chris, God and Carlos. I know that we will always call upon Carlos if the road ahead gets rough and I know that he will always offer great advise.
Thank you Pastor Carlos for making our wedding incredible, making our marriage healthy and for becoming a friend.

Awesome job Pastor Carlos, everyone was very impressed with everything you did on our special day. My mom is the worlds toughest critic and at the end of Saturday she was your biggest fan...besides my new wife Brenda and I of course! Your preperation was amazing, you knew a lot about my wife and I, and just what we would love for our wedding. Trying to find someone to marry the love of my life and I was more challenging because of my deployment to Afghanistan, but you made everything so easy for my wife and I, and when I got back to the states you were ready to rock n roll. Thank you so much, you will always be remembered, not just with Brenda and I, but with ALL our guests that day!

Thank You for the lovely ceremony. It was very nice even though it was just the three of us.
Pastor Carlos did a lovely job of writing a ceremony and helping us pick a place. We are from Kansas and had never been to San Diego before. Talking on the phone and thru e-mails he helped us find a nice spot called Moonlight Beach. He still wrote a very nice ceremony even though there were no guests. He was very helpful and glad he was part of our special day.
Thank you again for all you did for us. God Bless You,

Pastor Carlos helped to make our wedding perfect. He was willing to work with us even from a distance (we were in Northern California planning a wedding in San Diego). We spoke several times on the phone to discuss what we wanted to include in the wedding ceremony. Pastor Carlos provided information and ideas on how to make the ceremony beautiful and run smoothly. He proposed doing a sand ceremony, which turned out to be a wonderful addition to the ceremony. My entire family was extremely impressed with Pastor Carlos' professionalism, attention to detail, and wonderful presence in front of an audience! We strongly recommend Pastor Carlos Sales to anyone getting married.
We were thrilled with the ceremony that you performed for Megan and Casey. It was perfect and blended all of our wishes. We appreciate your willingness to work with us and the bride and groom. As soon as we get some pictures we will send you one. I would be happy to recommend your services if you would like me to. The whole San Diego vendor group was wonderful to work with...big city professionalism with small town friendliness. What a fun experience! Take care and may all of your ceremonies go smoothly.

Pastor Carlos made our special day better than we could have ever imagined. The ceremony that he performed for us was beautiful and perfect for what we wanted. He took the time to talk to us and make our ceremony fit us as a couple. We couldn't have asked for anything better. We would like to thank Pastor Carlos for everything.

“Pastor Carlos performed a beautiful ceremony for us. He was professional and prepared; and presented us with a detailed portfolio of options and ideas that we could choose from to incorporate into our ceremony which made it truly special and reflective of who we are as a couple. His presence at our ceremony helped to give that moment all the beauty and credibility I had hoped it would present to those who attended. I would highly recommend Pastor Carlos to anyone who is seeking and officiant who can give their wedding day all the special attention and honor that it deserves.”

Hi Pastor Carlos,
Thank you again for being part of our special day. I can not tell you how many people told us during the reception, as well as afterwards, how amazing and beautiful the ceremony itself was. You did an amazing job at the ceremony and both Kathleen and I truly appreciate how special you made our ceremony. Thanks again for everything!

Dear Pastor Carlos,
While Paul and I had never met you in person, our telephone conversations and e-mail exchanges really helped us feel like friends. We are both so grateful that God led us to your website. The ceremony you orchestrated was absolutely beautiful. Your sincerity and dedication to God and your calling were so evident throughout the entire ceremony. We received many compliments on the calm and loving style with which you delivered God's message on marriage. The ceremony was exactly as you had explained to us and as we had pictured in our minds and hearts. I am attaching some pictures of the ceremony which were taken by my sister. I will send you some of the ones the photographer took when they are done. I hope that you keep in touch and look us up if you are ever in the Chicago area.
God Bless you and your family,
Hanan and Paul

Thanks for a great ceremony. We had a blast as well, and were glad you were a part of it. You were great, kept it low key and casual.
We would definitely recommend Pastor Carlos to be involved with anyone’s special day. He took the time to get to know us ahead of time and took us through some counseling which was great. Thank you so much!!

Pastor Carlos made our wedding day run very smoothly with his professionalism and warmth. Coming in from out of town, and never having met him, we were truly impressed with him during our ceremony, having known us such a short time. His caring words provided a day that we will never forget. We would recommend him to anyone!

Hello Carlos :-)
WOW! What a beautiful service.... We are happy you chose to help us and be there. You made me smile. All I wanted was the Lord's blessing on our marriage and some nice photos. You are truly a man passionate in doing the will of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ; it shows. I am not sure how to explain the feelings of June 14th except to say "Where Two or more are gathered together in his name, he is in the midst". This was absolutely true..... Guests (both men and women) were overwhelmed and teary eyed. Funny, they had no idea why. I LOVE IT!!! I believe we have received the blessing I requested, but I have NO photo with our wonderful pastor. I was terribly disappointed.
Gary, consoled me by reminding me that we will never forget that day or allow your visual presence there diminish.
Thank you so very much... We do hope to see you again soon.
Our best to you and yours,

Dear Pastor Carlos,
Thank you so much for officiating our wedding on Sunday. It was such a beautiful service. We got so many compliments on how you included our daughter. It was so special. I am sad that I did not have it video taped.
We would like to send you a nice thank you, so I was wondering if I could get your address. Thank you again for everything. We are so extremely happy with the way the ceremony turned out!

Pastor Carlos Sales is the best! He created a unique, original, and personal wedding for my husband and I who were married last May. Pastor Carlos committed his time to meeting with us to ensure he got to know us both as a couple and also as individuals. He spoke to us about our family, community, dreams and our future. We don't go to church regularly, but wanted a wedding ceremony that was spiritual, but not too religious. Pastor Carlos completely respected our wishes and wrote us a personalized wedding ceremony. He also recommended a GREAT florist to help us decorate our wedding. In addition, we had many people tell us that he was the best wedding officiant they had seen perform a wedding. I highly recommend him to anyone wanting an extraordinary wedding ceremony experience. Youʼll see for yourself that his friendly, flexible, and caring personality reflects in his work and also establishes a trustworthy bond between the couple and himself. He is a great man and a great Pastor. We feel so blessed to have had him apart of our special day.

We want to thank you so much for a beautiful ceremony- you made our wedding day sooooo special- it couldn¹t have been any better.
Again, we feel truly blessed to have been led to you. You made the happiest day of our lives perfect. And the whole sand thing- it's amazing that you knew to say something about having sand and then for us to find out that they shorted us a bag!! God is amazing! The whole day turned out perfect.
We wish you the best!!

Carlos had been a dear friend of mine for many years before my wedding day, so I especially wanted him to perform our ceremony. He is one of the most personal, warm-hearted, kind, and diligent men I know. His love for God and people really shows through when he officiates at special services of all kinds. It certainly did at ours. And he has a great sense of humor. I recommend him with confidence that he will do a great job. Pastor Bob & Caroline
