We could not be happier with the quality of St. Jude Ministries. Reverend Calderin is spiritual, responsive, understanding, and patient. He makes an effort to get to know the couple he is marrying. On your wedding day, you feel a true connection with the individual marrying you. We will be staying in touch with Rev. Calderin forever and plan to visit when we are in the area. We enthusiastically recommend him.

I rarely write reviews only for the vendors who failed us in some way or the few amazing vendors who went above and beyond our expectations. Reverend Michael is the latter. Unfortunately, the first pastor we asked to co-officiate our interfaith wedding declined and we were left in limbo until we met Reverend Michael at a wedding we attended. We both thought he was great at our friend’s wedding ceremony so I decided to reach out to Reverend Michael to see if he was available for our wedding. From our first telephone conversation, I knew we had to book him. He was funny, personable, and I felt like I was talking to my friend. Unfortunately, since my wedding was not that far away, he was not sure if he would be available as he had vacations plans on my wedding date. Luckily, Reverend Michael moved his vacation plans so that he could officiate my wedding. I am so thankful because Michael was absolutely amazing! I feel like everything happens for a reason and that Michael was meant to be our co-officiant.
Michael really took the time to get to know us as a couple. He helped make our ceremony so very beautiful. All of my guests told me our ceremony was one of best ceremonies they have ever witnessed and that the rabbi and reverend did a great job working together to make it feel like one ceremony perfectly intertwined. There was not a dry eye in the seat, even my husband shed some tears, which I never thought would ever happen. I highly recommend Reverend Michael to officiate your wedding ceremony. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.

Michael was absolutely amazing!!!! He was actually the first vendor I booked once I got engaged because of the personal relationship I have had with him for over 10 years. All in all, it was a no brainer to book Michael as the officiant. An extra selling point was that he did the ceremony in both English and Spanish which was important for both Erick and my family. With Michal, there was no stress, he was always responsive and also took the time to get to know us as a couple. Although he and I had an existing relationship, he really took the time to get to know my now husband, which made everything extra special. Additionally, my guests told me, our ceremony was the best ceremony they have ever witnessed. Michael took pieces of us and also made some funny moments, which was very well received by our guests. All in all, I wish I could get married again to have Michael officiate our wedding again. He has definitely become apart of our family and will be apart of our many more milestones ahead.

Choosing Michael Calderin for our wedding was the best choice we ever could have made! He was the first and only reverend we met with. From my first contact with him over the phone to our first in person meeting, my husband and I knew we didn't want to meet with anyone else! Guests at our wedding said it was one of the best ceremonies they've been to. My husband and I aren't super religious and Michael formed his ceremony around our needs. He made it about us, our love, and our friendship as a couple. He was responsive, on time, and LISTENED to our needs. You will NOT go wrong with choosing St. Jude Ministries for your wedding!!! :)

Reverend Michael was absolutely amazing! He made our ceremony so incredibly special and we felt so comfortable with him. He makes it a point to get to know his couples and truly has a passion for what he does. He's funny yet very deep in the way that he speaks. I think the only reason I was able to get through my vows was because of his ceremony. He also speak three languages! English Spanish and Italian which is exactly what our families needed. We couldn't have been happier with our selection of someone special to marry us. Highly recommended!

I don't know how he did it, but Michael Calderin was able to officiate a ceremony that was brief, and still intimate. There wasn't a dry eye in the house. All of our guests complimented him and his beautiful words. The officiant can be easily overlooked during the planning process, but I would encourage ALL to get to know Michael. He was amazing, and he'll be a part of our lives going forward.

Reverend Michael was excellent. He took the time to get to know us personally throughout the wedding planning process and made our ceremony everything we wanted and more. We got so many compliments from family and friends on how meaningful the ceremony was and what an excellent job he did. We would definitely recommend him!

Rev. Michael is truly one of a kind. I knew he was the perfect officiant for us upon our ending our first phone call. He is caring and detail oriented and made for one of the best ceremonies ever.

All of our guests commented on the love filled, humorous and personal nature of the ceremony. We booked a destination wedding but never once did I feel worried about how Rev Michael would conduct the ceremony. He delivered above and beyond our expectations. We can't thank him enough!!!!

Reverend Michael Calderin made our ceremony so memorable! It was spot on with what we wanted. We chose some readings and then we allowed him to pick the rest. He was so comical at the right moments during the ceremony, everyone kept saying how great he was. We did a rose exchange and our florist forgot the roses, sure enough Reverend had roses in his car. He really is just a kind hearted soul. We planned our wedding from Michigan and from the first phone call we knew he was perfect for our wedding. We skyped for meetings and he was always available! Bobby and Danielle Gibson cannot thank you enough!

I am blessed to have had Michael officiate our wedding! I first met Michael, when he officiated my sister's wedding a few years ago and I knew when it came to our wedding, he would be the one for us! He made our ceremony a true reflection of who we are. He took the time, to get to know us both personally, and as a couple, and then created the perfect ceremony! If you are looking for the perfect ceremony, where it is a genuine, light, and harmonious, look no further! Michael is an awesome person and I am glad to call him "family". Thank you for all you did for Memphis and I, before the wedding, during the wedding, and for all the memories! We love you!!
