We recently got married at the Bonnet House and Rev Calderin was absolutley amazing. He made our ceremony so special for us. We live in Pennsylvania and did not actually meet Rev Calderin till the day of our wedding but you would have thought we knew eachother for years. All our guests raved about how great he was. I could have not asked for anyone better and we were ansolutley thrilled. He really has this inate ability to make everyone feel loved and welcome and it was perfect for our big day.

Saint Jude Ministries has the best wedding officiants anyone couple could hope for! Reverend Michael Somberg officiated our wedding at the Addison on March 25, 2017. From the first few minutes that my fiance and I first met with him, we knew he was the right person for the job! He really listened to what we were looking for and had great advice for us. He was very helpful in guiding us all along the way and even providing many readings to look through. We wanted to have some humor in our ceremony, and he added just the right touches in the right places! So many of the guests commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony and specifically how funny Reverend Somberg was. And most importantly, he made us feel very comfortable so we could really enjoy our special day! We were so happy with our entire experience from start to finish and highly recommend Saint Jude Ministries to anyone who is looking for an exceptional officiant for their wedding ceremony! Thank you Reverend Michael Somberg!

My husband and I just got married this past weekend at the Biltmore Hotel in Miami (both the ceremony and reception were held on site). Much of my husband's family live in Colombia and don't speak any English so it was very important to us to find a Catholic Reverend who could personalize our ceremony and incorporate both languages for all of our guests. I called several officiants and the minute I spoke to Michael, we clicked instantly. He was funny, honest, friendly and the more time we spent with him, the more we saw him as a friend. All of our guests loved him! Not only did he personalize our ceremony and keep our guests attention, but he kept it a little bit traditional while adding a whole lot of humor. Everyone kept commenting asking where we found him!! Thank you Michael for the most beautiful ceremony. We love you!

Michael Calderin was amazing! He showed up early to the wedding and everyone loved him. My husband and I had pre marital counseling sessions with Michael as well. We found it very easy to talk to him about sensitive and important issues. I highly recommend Michael if you're thinking of having pre marital counseling. We didn't think we needed it until we all met and the conversation just flowed; there were some things addressed that made us even more connected and in love. Seriously.

Michael was charming, funny and made my husband & I feel totally at ease. He took over on the day when we both showed up with our vows to be read from our phones (LOL....he had them printed and in hand before we could even blink).
We had a pre-interview session which was casual & light. The ceremony was my ultimate favorite part of the day, and it is one I shall never forget.
If you are wondering who to book....look no further.

Having a destination wedding can cause some stress, especially when you do not have any idea what vendors to choose. After reviewing Reverend Michael, my fiancée and I decided he might be a great choice. From the moment we spoke to him on the phone we felt certain about him performing our ceremony. Our ceremony was very simple and the only thing we requested was that God be the focus of our ceremony. Reverend Michael assured us that God "will be in the front, back, and side of the ceremony." Reverend Michael spent time talking to our fathers before the ceremony, which meant very much to us and our families. Reverend Michael officiated our ceremony with love, humor, and most important, kept God as the focus. We could not have asked for a more perfect ceremony that suited our personalities and requests, and that was all thanks to Reverend Michael. We would absolutely recommend him to any couple.

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.
