Reverend Michael Calderin made our ceremony timeless and perfect! From the first time we met him (almost a year before the wedding) to the actual wedding day, he took the time to get to know us and prepare us for our big day. During our ceremony we felt extremely comfortable and his words and charisma were very well received by everyone in attendance. He also threw in Spanish, so that some of the guests that were not fluent in English could follow along, and he did an amazing job! He is all around amazing and we are certain that we will have a continued relationship with him. Thank again for everything!! :D

Reverend Michael Calderin was absolutely amazing! From the moment we met with him, we knew that he was the perfect fit. My husband and I both were raised Catholic but wanted to get married outdoors. Since the Catholic Church only allows Priests to marry couples inside the church, we knew we needed to find someone else that would be able to blend our Catholic/Christian faith with our modern personalities. This task seemed like a huge challenge as we knew the person had to be able to make our ceremony feel personal and special, not just like we were another number. Reverend Michael was truly a blessing to us; he has the ability to make you feel like you have known him forever. He is warm and kind while also funny and witty. Throughout the planning process, in the events leading up to the wedding, Reverend went above and beyond to help my husband and I make sure that our wedding was perfect. We had many conversations about the ceremony, from the order of events, how to make is personal and customized to us and even planning details such as a microphone and sound. Reverend Michael thought of it all and offered suggestions while never being pushy or overbearing. During our ceremony, he customized it to our religious wants and needs while adding an appropriate level of humor to keep everyone fully engaged. Since we had started to form a relationship with him, the ceremony felt very personable and we will remember it for years to come. It was far from a cookie cutter script; is so evident how passionate he is about making each couples ceremony memorable. After the ceremony, everyone came up and complemented how amazing he was; we plan on maintaining a lifelong relationship with him as we truly feel as though he will continue to enrich our lives. Thank you so much Reverend Michael!

I was so fortunate to have Reverend Calderin officiated my wedding this past month. We are a very fun, not so serious couple and we really let him do whatever he felt was best for us. He started with a beautiful prayer remembering our loved ones that had passed, he picked some beautiful readings that was perfect for us and he even had a few moments that made everyone laugh. My ceremony was absolutely amazing, I am so glad I had him perform it!

On July 31, 2015, my family and I participated in our inaugural destination wedding! We reside in Springfield, Illinois and my niece selected the sunny spot of Fort Lauderdale as host location for this lifetime event. We remain altogether grateful for the remarkable service of the officiant we selected for this journey, the Reverend Michael J. Calderin of Saint Jude Ministries, Inc. From the onset, Rev. Calderin was responsive and patient. He provided advice that enabled us to maintain the wedding schedule desired by my niece. In making transportation arrangements, I neglected to factor in time to allow the couple to acquire a wedding license; this oversight could have dismantled all plans. However, Rev. Calderin provided insight and a suggestion that solved this challenge. The Rev. Michael J. Calderin proved himself to be a tireless advocate, skilled executive and someone who is extraordinarily qualified and suited for such lifetime endeavors. Our family still reflects on the words and advice shared by Rev. Calderin during the beautiful ceremony. Any confidence bestowed upon Reverend Michael J. Calderin is an investment well-placed; we unequivocally recommend his services!

Reverend Calderin already came with great reviews, he married my now Husbands brother in 2009. But working with him on my own, from the first time we spoke, I knew he was the one. He brought me a sense of calmness during a hectic process.
The Ceremony was absolutely beautiful and everything I could have dreamed of. So many guest complimented the Ceremony and had great things to say about Reverend Calderin. Thank you for helping to make our day perfect!

Rev. Michael Calderin was exactly what we needed after a very stressful week leading up to our wedding.

Our week was filled with many unexpected hiccups and Rev. Calderin was extremely patient and understanding of the shifts in our schedules. When we finally met, his sincere, caring, and lighthearted nature helped ease much of the stress we were having while his ceremony completely eliminated the remainder. He incorporated our faiths perfectly and added some much appreciated humor during the ceremony! ALL of our guests commented on how wonderful and entertaining the wedding was to see.

Rev. Calderin we cannot thank you enough!
