We had the misfortune of hiring Mr Rodriguez for our wedding this past Saturday. He is a great salesman and sold us on his services and experience during our initial meeting. The rest was a trainwreck, he didn't answer our numerous phone calls, voicemails, and failed to get back to us until the day before. The day of the rehearsal he was extremely rude to my now mother In law and the wedding party. He was barking orders and looked very concerned about driving to his next appointment. After the rehearsal we discussed our contract and realized when we met with him 4 months before we had discussed a start time of 5:30pm for our ceremony. We advised that we had to push back the ceremony to 6:30pm and he simply said he could not accommodate us because he had another wedding at 7pm across town. He then proceeded to tell my bride that she needed to start a group text to tell all of our guests that they needed to show up an hour early because he had another wedding to officiate after ours. My bride was extemely upset and he ruined our engagement dinner that night. He was very insentive, the opposite of when we met him. That night I called him and advised him to recommend another reverend to officiate our wedding because he had done enough damage. All in all, to summarize our experience. He was very 2faced, he acted like a diva during the rehearsal and was extremely disrespectful, his lack of communication caused an array of problems with the start time, he booked 2 weddings on the same day 1.5 hours apart (with a 30min drive in between) which makes no sense since we all know things sometimes go wrong and you need some cushion, he caused distress to my bride, mother of the bride and the whole wedding party. The only positive was his recommendation pastor Michael Somberg who did a beautiful ceremony for us and was extremely professional. If you're looking for someone to officiate your wedding I would NOT RECOMMEND this guy. All the best.

Rev. Eddie Rodriguez responded with the following comments:

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. I have worked very diligently to provide my clients with exceptional service, evidenced in 230 plus very positive reviews. From my perspective and other witnesses present at the rehearsal everything went well. At the end of the rehearsal the discrepancy in start time was discovered. In our initial meeting we did not discuss starting at 5:30pm we contracted for 5:30pm. Not every wedding starts on time, but an hour later is unreasonable. You admitted changing the time but failing to inform me. I suggested we could get a phone tree started and ask your guests to arrive earlier and I would speak to my next couple and see if they were willing to start later. My second wedding was strict about starting at 7:00pm. I suggested having cocktail hour first and I could come back to perform the ceremony. You informed me that you were not changing anything. You became abusive. You questioned my business practice and my integrity. You made a point of reminding me that your fiancé works at a high-end Public Relations firm and knows a lot of people, I understood this to be a threat. I hired a new minister. I provided him with a copy of my notes and the particulars of the ceremony. In 10 years I have had the honor of uniting over 700 couples. I have traveled from Argentina to Colombia, the Caribbean to Toronto and all over the US, I have been on time to every single wedding. You called me two-faced and disingenuous. This is more than a business, it is building relationships. My couples call to celebrate the birth of their children, to honor their loved ones when they pass and, when their marriage hits a bump I am always available. Your review has saddened me, it is the opposite of who I am and of what my intentions are. I regret we were not able to build a relationship like the ones I have with other couples. Please accept my very best wishes.

Rev Eddie was AMAZING! Not only was is he well spoken and professional, but he takes the time to make the ceremony about the couple that is getting married. He was able to make the ceremony personal to us and our family. The experience for my husband and me was so special. Our guests noticed as well! We got tons of feedback on how beautiful the ceremony was and what a great speaker Rev. Eddie was. We are so grateful!

Reverend Eddie was one of the main highlights of our wedding not only from the bride and groom's perspective but also from our guests! I knew from all of the raving reviews he was going to be good but I was not expecting such an incredible addition to our wedding day... he makes you feel like your wedding is the most important one he has ever done. He listened to what we wanted, and his advice was on point and we knew we could trust him from all the experience he has. We share the same spiritual beliefs as him and we clicked right away... he made our ceremony so special, unique, memorable, engaging, all without being boring and stuffy... he has a calm demeanor, and I was very thankful that I was able to feed off of that... we couldn't have asked for more. Everyone comments on how great he was... I would recommend booking him for the rehearsal as well, he leads the whole process! We know we will keep in touch with Rev Eddie for years to come as we gained a great friend.

There aren't enough amazing things I can say about Rev. Eddie Rodriguez.
Sean and I took a while deciding what kind of ceremony we wanted to have and were looking high and low for an officiant who would represent everything that we wanted to express to our family and loved ones. We nearly asked a close friend of ours to do it until we came across the highly recommended Rev. Eddie.
Within seconds of meeting Rev. Eddie, we knew we had found the best person for the job, even better than a close family friend. We instantly felt comfortable with him. He was truly interested in getting to know who we really were so that he can officiate a ceremony that would represent who we were as a couple to our guests.
Rev. Rodriguez asked us the type of ceremony we wanted, whether spiritual or religious or humanistic, we wanted basically a mix of it all. Something that embodied the kind of people we are so that the guests would feel like they were at OUR wedding, and not hear the same old thing they've heard at every other wedding they've attended.
His readings which we assisted in choosing, were perfection. Not only were the readings perfect, the delivery from Rev Eddie made it that much more heart felt and special.
Not many dry eyes in the room but not because of anything sad, but because the readings and his way of speaking touched every person in the room (or in our case, the beach :)
I wish I could relive this day over and over. There's no doubt in my mind that anyone who works with Rev. Eddie will be ecstatic at the outcome. We even asked that he stay at our reception with us!

He also handled our rehearsal which, with a group like ours, could have been quite a challenge. Not only was it so quick and smooth but there were no surprises the day of and everything went exactly according to our plan.

I wish all the brides & grooms out there the most special and unforgettable ceremony which is without a doubt what you'll get with THE REV.

Eddie was the first vendor we ever met with. We wanted to make sure he was available on the date we were thinking of before booking anything else. The most important aspect of our wedding was the ceremony and we knew he wouldn't disappoint. We had been told by our friends that he always spoke about the couple in a very personal way and that is exactly what he did. He's amazing at what he does and I'm so happy with how our ceremony went. It was beautiful! There was not a dry eye in the crowd.

My husband and I chose Reverend Eddy to officiate my wedding after witnessing him officiate my sister's wedding a couple of years ago. We cannot describe how amazing he was. Professional, courteous, HONEST, creative, intelligent, and most importantly, willing and able to answer ALL of our questions. Rev. Eddy personalized our wedding to a level that I still get comments on how "beautiful, personal, unique and emotional" our ceremony was... We feel that Rev. Eddy was truly "present" at our ceremony and would recommend him with highest regards.

Rev Eddie was the final puzzle piece that we needed for our dream wedding. We called many officiants at first, but Eddie was it. We clicked with him instantly and I am so happy that he was available. He is very nice and amazing at what he does. I will never forget the beautiful words he said at our ceremony. He customized everything he said to us specifically; we had guests that thought he knew us for years! Eddie is a very very special person and i will never forget him. I highly recommend him because you will not be disappointed, I guarantee he is the best.

Look no further, Eddie is an outstanding human being and an incredible professional. I work in the industry as a Director of Catering for a hotel so when it was time for me to plan my own wedding I knew there was no one else I could trust with this special moment in our lives. Eddie made the journey so beautiful and memorable that I will forever be thankful. Eddie takes the time to get to know you and your significant other personally, he offers the opportunity to attend his fantastic workshops where he guides you in amazing conversations as you are preparing for this special day and he is always there to assist with guidance and a big smile. There were so many things we wanted to do and say at our wedding to each other and to our family and friends, Eddie offered wonderful advice and helped create such an amazing ceremony, it truly touched our hearts and the hearts of all of our guests.
He took the time to understand who we are and what we envisioned and he made our dream a reality... he actually created an experience that was beyond anything we could have ever imagined .
Eddie if you are reading this, thank you again from the bottom of our hearts, you will have a special place forever. I always knew from working with you that you were fantastic but I never knew just how fantastic until I had the opportunity to be on the other side, thank you for guiding us and helping us, you are amazing.
For all you future couples out there, you would be crazy not to have Eddie set the tone for the start of your lives together.

I wanted to thank you so very much for your beautiful words that you wrote for our wedding. They were so touching and moving, on so many levels. Everyone came up to me afterwards and still today letting me know how they somehow felt a connection and could relate to what you wrote and how it affected them. I just watched the clip of our wedding video for the 100th time and was watching your face as I said my i-do’s to Alfred and couldn’t help but notice your smile while rehearsing to me what to repeat. I thought it was so beautiful to see you smile as I know you have done this man many times, so it just showed me how much you truly must love what you do.
