I do not have enough words of praise and gratitude for Reverend Santana and the patience and kindness that he showed to my now husband and I. We decided about 5 weeks before our wedding date that we wanted to elope in San Juan. We were heading to San Juan to catch a cruise back to Baltimore and thought it would be very romantic to get married in this exotic place. Both my husband and I are from a rural place in Pennsylvania, so the idea of catching taxis and traversing across San Juan was a little daunting. We reached out to Reverend Santana after finding him on this site. He gave clear and concise direction on what documents to obtain, he was very flexible with us in that he agreed to pick us up at our hotel in Miramar and take us to the Bank to obtain the marriage stamp, he then took us to the Office of the Registry in Old San Juan only to discover that the person who could provide the license was not available. We then had to brave the San Juan rush hour to go to the main Office of the Registry about 40 minutes away. He was our voice as neither my husband and I are fluent in Spanish and helped us complete the paper work. Once that was secured, he took us to a beautiful location in Old San Juan, Paseo de La Princesa, found a nice spot along the water and married us right there. The readings were perfect, the location couldn't have been better and then to top this all off, he was kind enough to drop us off at the cruise ship port so that we could set sail on our honeymoon. For as daunting as this whole process seemed in the beginning, without this man, nothing would have gone as smoothly or even happened as it did. We will be forever thankful for this awesome memory and hope to keep in contact with Reverend Santana for many years to come. You will not find a more compassionate gentlemen to arrange your wedding ceremony and venue. While we opted for the simple personal elopement, I would not hesitate to recommend him for a more extravagant ceremony.

My husband and I renewed our vows with our children and my Mother. Rev. Santana was a blessing. He kept in contact with us and informed us about places to stay and explained the area since this was our first time in Puerto Rico. He picked the beach (which was amazing) and helped us find a photographer (whom we also loved). He was friendly, funny, and said exactly the perfect words for our ceremony. He allowed us to say our own vows to each and included our children and my Mother in the ceremony. Could not say enough about him. Would highly recommend Rev. Santana.

Reverend Santana was a lighthouse for us pre and during our ceremony. As soon as I spoke to him over the phone I knew he would be the one to marry us. Reverend Santana met with us, guided us, counseled us and shared sound wisdom with us prior to our wedding. When we met with Reverend Santana, he was very sensitive about the fact I lost my father and offered a silent prayer during the ceremony. That small gesture meant so much. The day of the ceremony, he kept us to time and made us (and our guests) both laugh and tear up. He walked us through every step of the license process and made us feel safe and secure. We will be sure to take Reverend Santana up on his offer to call him up at any time we need his guidance. If you're looking for an officiant that believes in the beauty and power that is marriage, we highly recommend Reverend Santana.

Rev. Aran Santana is a wonderful person and great Minister. He was very professional and very knowledgeable about the ins and outs of a wedding ceremony. He provided us with many options on how we would like the ceremony to flow. As well as, examples of vows, prayers, poems and etc to use during the ceremony. Rev. Santana provided us with detail information on obtaining a marriage license in Puerto Rico which was invaluable because Puerto Rico has several requirements. Without this detail information we probably would have gotten married at the courthouse and just had the ceremony in Puerto Rico. We can't thank the Rev. enough for a great ceremony!!

Rev. Santana was great! He was great at keeping contact with us, it could have been a struggle since Puerto Rico is so far away. He was very helpful, and explained everything clearly. He made my spouse and I very comfortable going into the ceremony.

Rev Santana was recommended by our Wedding Planner and we couldn't have chosen a better officiant. Rev Santana from the beginning made us feel very welcome and comfortable. We talked on the phone first before meeting since it was a destination wedding in Isla Verde, Puerto Rico and he took the time to walk us thru everything. From the marriage license, paperwork and documents needed prior to arriving to PR and he explained everything in detail. He made the process smooth and easy. His selections on the ceremony was just amazing and he treated us like family. You will not be disappointed with Rev Santana he made our ceremony that much more memorable. Thank you Rev for your kind words and sharing some laughs and good times with us before the big day! May god bless you and your wonderful family.

Reverend Santana officiated at my daughter's destination wedding in Puerto Rico. I love him! He is amazing, amazing, amazing. He is so caring and kind. He met with me when I was in Puerto Rico visiting from Boston three times before the wedding at no extra charge. It was an interfaith marriage and he was sensitive to both sides of the family. We didn't have a wedding coordinator and he guided us through all the legal paperwork. I will miss him and hope I see him again one day. He officiated an absolutely beautiful service! I strongly recommend him to other couples.
