We can't thank Reverend Adelaida Avila enough for officiating our wedding! The ceremony and exchnaging of vows is the most importnat part of a wedding - it is the entire reason why the event is happening - and initially we couldnt find an officiant that we felt loved their job because of the beauty of marriage. Almost every one we came across treated it as any other business except for Reverend Adelaida Avila. She absoluetly loves what she does and it shows. She was patient with us and really crafted a ceremony that we loved! We truly appreciate all of the effort and thoughtfulness that was put into our ceremony.

We had a very small but beautiful wedding at The Water Club in NYC.. From the beginning, she was professional and extremely helpful with the layout of our ceremony. She suggested touches my now husband and I didn't even think of like the lighting of the Unity candle. She took the time out to get to know us and because of that, wrote a wonderful ceremony that my husband and I will always cherish. She answers every email and was prompt and ready the day of our wedding. We would definitely recommended her to anyone getting married. Our friends and family are still talking about how beautiful our ceremony was.

She was so sweet. She came to us for the first meeting. She wrote up a ceremony that felt more like us and took our suggestions. Her pricing is very reasonable. She was very professional. We signed a contract and paid a deposit. We paid the balance the day of the wedding and handed her the license. It was a very nice bilingual ceremony and we could not have been happier with her. She was dressed very nice and formal. We had a English/Spanish ceremony. It lasted about 12 minutes, which is what we wanted. We are very happy with Adie and would recommend her to any couple. After our honeymoon, we received a letter in the mail from her and a copy of the license she filed with the court.

I was very pleased with Rev. Avila's services. Our ceremony was perfect. My husband and i are young so she provided something that fit our personalities as well as out different religious views. Shes also very pantual and patient. I, on the other hand was running late. Rev. Avila was patient and proceeded with the ceremony as planned. It is a day i wont remember. She is very loving, patient and has a great sense of humor. Last but not least the price of her services was perfect as well. My husband and I were on a really tight budget so we definitely appreciate it. Her services are great for such a great price. I chose a sand ceremony. It was so special. I definitely recommend her.

Reverend Avila was wonderful. She was very responsive and helped us to make personalize our ceremony. She included an acknowledgement to our children which was very important to us. She even helped us add a hand fasting ritual to our ceremony which also made it extra special. She was very flexible and accommodated our change in ceremony venue on the day of the wedding due to inclement weather. She is extremely professional and I would recommend her to all. Thank you Reverend Avila!

Reverend Avila really took the time to learn and understand who we are as a couple. We gave her a little bit of our background and she was able to relate to us and understand how happy we are together and what we enjoyed. When she wrote our ceremony, the first word out of my mouth was "perfect". From listening to us for a few short weeks (I planned a wedding in 4 weeks :) ), she hit the nail on the head with us. We could not have been more happy to have her to perform our ceremony and make our day something we will never forget.
Thank you for everything!
Sincerely,
Tom and Danielle

My fiance (now husband) and I decided to have a small, family only wedding. This was the 1st time for both of us. We were not experienced in the process at all and asked friends for recommendations. Adie was referred to us by a friend. Choosing Adie was one of the best decisions we made. She educated us on the process and truly made it simple for us. She was always there to answer my questions (of which there were many). She helped me with my personal vows and most importantly of all - Adie performed an absolutely beautiful ceremony for us!!!!

Adelaida Avila was a pleasure to work with for our September 15th nuptials. Her professionalism and flexibility were evident from the onset. She delivered a smooth, articulate and enjoyable bi-lingual ceremony - just the way we wanted! Her planning approach was organized into 3 parts:

(A) An initial discussion to see if her style and experience would be a good fit,
(B) An email draft of the entire ceremony to allow for edits/acceptance, and then
(C) The ceremony.

The Benefield's gladly recommend her services to other couples interested in utilizing her talents.


Sincerely,

Mr. & Mrs. Karl Benefield

When we were searching for a reverend for our wedding we need someone to really display the love that we share for one another. We thought about writing our own vows however, after reading her proposal for our ceremony we were completely stunned with her choice of words as it nailed our thoughts perfectly. She also offered other activities such as a sand ceremony and rose ceremony among other things. Those two in particular work great for us. She was very organized and timely. We could not have asked for a better ceremony.

Reverend Avila was great. She did an excellent job on the ceremony which she performed in English and Spanish. Having a bilingual ceremony was important to us and she performed it wonderfully. She was very kind and made sure we were completely comfortable with what she was going to say. I actually met Reverend Avila through my mom who met her through a friend, so we had already heard great things. We are very pleased with the service and professionalism we have received and would definitely recommend Reverend Avila to everyone. Thanks again Adie!

Adelaida was very helpful and very professional when it came to our wedding day. She was someone I really connected with and both myself and my husband felt very comfortable with her. Not only is she very reasonable, she cares about every single wedding she does. I was very happy with her service. I wish I could get married every year just to use her over and over again.

I do know when it comes time for my husband and I to have a baby, I would love Adelaida to give a baby blessing to our event. Thanks so much for making our day a success!

A friend of mine recommended Rev.Avila for our wedding. From the moment my future husband and I met her we knew we were in good hands. Rev. Avila provided us with various options that helped us customize our wedding ceremony. We received countless compliments. We would recommend Rev. Avila to anyone looking for that "special something".

We just want to give our most deepest thanks to Rev. Adelaida Avila. She was so patient and kind with us while we worked on the vows on our most special day. We can not thank her enough for the lovely ceremony that she performed for us in both English & Spanish. We told her what we envisioned for our day and she knew exactly what we were looking for. The ceremony was just lovely and we want to thank her again from the bottom of our hearts! Also, she was very professional and answered any and all questions that we had. She knew the laws and explained to us the process. She was very approachable and easy to contact. We could not ask for more.
