Father Joaquin was great; I have never heard so many complements at any wedding, on how great the officiate was. All we heard about the entire night was how entertaining and engaging his service was, The first day we met him in person was the day of the wedding, and we both felt like we had known him our entire lives.

Father Joaquin officiated my ceremony. He was wonderful, everyone loved it, he personalized it in a way that fitted perfectly. It was cute, lovely, funny! By the way I was 40 minutes late because I got stuck on traffic and he waited for me. I recommend him 200%!

We found Father Joaquin through wedding wire and contact him about our wedding in November 2013. Father Joaquin was a pleasure to work with. He was prompt, professional and fun!

As the big day approached, Father Joaquin communicated with us by phone ( he is flexible, can be reached by phone, email, text or in person) and we talked about how we would like the ceremony to be and our history as a couple.

My Husband (Then Fiance) being not very religious was apprehensive about having an overly religious sermon. I always wanted a blessing from a spiritual leader and both our families being Spanish Catholics Father Joaquin was the perfect choice!

The day of the ceremony, Father Joaquin was professional and prompt, was funny, he made us and all of our guest laugh, provided the sermon in parts English and Spanish and pleased our Catholic Family members as well as our less Religious guest. He kept it fun, short and interesting.

WE were so happy with him and our guest were RAVING about how awesome Father Joaquin was.
Please consider Father Joaquin for your officiant on your big day :)

Father Joaquin was amazing! From the moment we met him at mass we knew we wanted him to be the one to marry us. He made the ceremony extremely special by incorporating part of our lives and culture into it; everyone was involved and that made it extra special. We couldn't imagine having our special day without Padre Joaquin with us. He was very cooperative, flexible with his hours and always available to answer our questions. He made us feel at ease and relaxed in such a special occasion!

El pasado 7 de septiembre, en la Villa La Cassinella, Lago Como, Italia, Father Joaquín Pérez ofició la maravillosa ceremonia de matrimonio de mi hija Becky con Jeff, en ingles y español, con gran profesionalidad, sensibilidad y cariño.
A mi personalmente me emociono muchísimo y todos los invitados, de los cinco continentes, elogiaron a Father Joaquín por su pasión, espiritualidad, los toques de humor, y por su sermón personalizado. Father Joaquín le agradezco de corazón la ceremonia más bonita y emotiva de todas las bodas a las que asistido.

My husband and I were married in Coral Gables, FL(destination wedding) we were fortunate enough to happen upon Father Joaquin Perez early enough in our planning process to secure his services for our wedding date.

Our first real meeting with Father Joaquin was 2 days before the wedding, I had only spoken via telephone before with him. We both knew within five minutes that we had made the right choice in having him officiate our wedding ceremony. He was well-organized, amicably professional, and listened to our thoughts/concerns while providing great feed back. Exactly what we needed.

We were looking for someone who seemed capable of delivering a seamless presentation. He eliminated any and all worry from the entire process - allowing us to relax and focus on each other. Through thoughtful prepping and communication, he helped us to create a beautiful ceremony that accurately represented us as a couple and we couldn't be more happy with the results.

Gracias Padre Joaquin!

I first met Father Joaquin at my uncles wedding at Royal Ballrooms, he did an outstanding job! When I got married (4+ years ago) I used him for my outdoor wedding at Douglas Entrance and he was also great (all of my ceremonies were in Spanish, but our meetings were in English and I understand he is fluent in many languages). I recently baptized my children so I immediately contacted him, again. At this point, he is our "family father". We use him for all of our events and we know what to expect. The value is great because like all things in life, you get what you pay for. He has always been professional, fun, and on time. I would recommend him to anyone! I took the time to write this review because he really deserves it. Best of luck!

I highly recommend him because he adds a lot of personality to the ceremony and really tried to get to know us beforehand in order to make the ceremony more unique and personalized. Our guests were asking about him after the ceremony and complimenting our great choice of an officiant! Read less

We were so very pleased with Father Joaquin when he married us at the Sonesta Hotel. He was prompt and very professional. The ceremony was in Spanish and English which was perfect for my family. He customized it from our previous conversations. He made me feel at ease even though I was really nervous.

Since then, Father Joaquin has become the family priest. He baptized my first born and will baptize my second next week! He has been there for our family in happy and tough times. He is a great spiritual leader.

Father Joaquin was great to work with. We spoke on the phone a few times before the wedding and chatted briefly before the ceremony and our guests wouldn't have known we never met him before our wedding. He provided some great entertainment (throwing the rest of the flower girl's petals, wearing a pair of the white wayfarer glasses given out to guests, saying "Good Job" to my husband after he said all the vows and making me kiss him on the cheek after kissing my husband). He even greeted our Brazilian guests in Portuguese - a very nice touch that I know they appreciated. He was the perfect choice for our wedding.

Father Joaquin was AMAZING!! He made our wedding ceremony fit us perfectly!! He was fun and casual - just like us :). We are not super religious, but were both raised Catholic, and Father Joaquin did a wonderful job of tying in our Catholic roots without it being overwhelming. He did a great job talking about "our story" and really made the whole ceremony very personal and heartwarming. We had a bilingual group of guests (as my husband is from Chile), and he had great ideas to help us work with that. I did my vows in Spanish (my husband's native language), and my husband did his vows in English (my native language), which was really special for us, and brought lots of guests to tears. Father Joaquin was wonderful, and I would recommend him to anyone!!

Father Joaquin was amazing!! I couldn't have asked for a better wedding ceremony. He was funny and clear. Everyone complimented how great the officiant was. He was a little hard to get a hold of at first but once you have his cell phone number you can get in touch with him at any time! He was amazing and knows his stuff by heart! Perfect for a bilingual wedding ceremony!! :)

As a destination bride, it was very difficult to find the perfect officiant. We searched for a priest near our wedding venue and came across Father Joaquin. Using other reviews on weddingwire, we were confident that he would deliver. We had an initial telephone conversation and I felt very comfortable with talking to Father Joaquin as if he was a Father of the church I grew up in. I sent a bio of the bride and groom (us!), and how we met. On the day of the wedding, Father Joaquin performed a beautiful ceremony of uniting us as one. I recommend Father Joaquin, everyone enjoyed the ceremony, with tears of joy and laughter.

Father Joaquin was great. He has obviously been officiating for a while and knows how to not only make the ceremony special but fast too. He was very funny and every guest I talked to mentioned how great he was. I also liked the fact that he makes the ceremony very personal. He sat down with the bride and groom before the ceremony to ask about our story, about the proposal, and a few other personal things, and incorporated them into the ceremony. My only negative comment is that he can take days to weeks to reply to some of your emails (which isn't that big of a deal but can be slightly frustrating). Overall, great priest, I would recommend him.

Father Joaquin ceremony was nice, it was on time and as we expected it had a few special details that everybody loved and we will remember forever ; BUT there is a huge fail that Father Joaquin did in a moment that he shouldn’t … He forgot completely the details that we spoke with him, almost a month before the wedding during our meeting in his office . The situation was during the ceremony ; It was pretty bad and uncomfortable one when Father Joaquin whisper to the Groom on the moment when the bride was entering the Church with her father if the ceremony will be in Spanish???; The Groom was in shock and quick respond that it was clear during the meeting ‘BILINGUAL’ … Apparently or looks like Father Joaquin forgot we specified him in the ceremony planning- meeting that it will be bilingual; we even said that should be more parts in English and just a few segments in Spanish . Well Father Joaquin forgot it and did the question in the worse and inappropriate moment
Additionally to forget the points we specified in the ceremony meeting; Father Joaquin also needs to take more care of reviewing his emails, or returning calls on time; we had a very difficult experience waiting for Father Joaquin reply or call back with an answer to our questions.

I picked Father Perez because he spoke French and I needed to have a bilingual wedding. He was good and my guests liked him very much. However, he was very nervous and although his French had been good and conversational over the phone and in person, he was not so articulate at the wedding. I also felt like he was not very well organized as he kept shuffling papers during the ceremony. We had a beach-front wedding and it was very windy, yet he forgot the torch, so we could not light the candles.
Conclusion: I would have liked someone more organized, although finding such a person who speaks French in South Florida may be asking too much

He was 30 minutes late. He proceeded to tell my coordinator that he wasn't late and when she showed him the contract, his response was he doesn't look at that... His tardiness cost me $$$. I also felt that he rushed through the ceremony and forgot to dedicate the ceremony to my great aunt who had recently passed. The dedication would have meant the world to my family.

One good thing about him was that he was funny at times.
