Reverend Araz Santana Gonzalez was simply exquisite to work with!! I dreaded getting the marriage license more than any other planning for our destination wedding in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, and Rev. Santana helped make the process so easy! From providing details of the information we needed to bring, where to go (with directions) for the license and the stamp to reviewing all documents with us and handling the finalization and mailing of the certificate, he handled it all!! By the way, it took just under a month to receive our certificates in the mail - we were unsure of the timeframe, but Rev. Santana was available for follow-up in this process as well!

In addition to preparing for the ceremony and meeting us in advance, Rev. Santana helped us put together the exact ceremony my husband and I wanted. We are spiritual but not affiliated with any specific religion, and we really wanted our ceremony to be true to our beliefs and values, and Rev. Santana was very accommodating and did not judge us when we asked that any religious wording or suggestion be removed from the wording we chose.

The ceremony was absolutely wonderful!! We wanted fun and up-beat but meaningful and loving, and Rev. Santana helped to bring these attributes to our nuptials! Our guests even commented on how great he was and that the ceremony was completely enjoyable! He let us be ourselves and enjoy our moment(s) with laughter and tears, and we couldn't have asked for a better professional and caring person to perform our ceremony!

Thank you, Reverend Santana! You were the best!

The Rev. is a very nice man. However, after spending days researching the wording for our ceremony, (i.e.- welcoming, prayer, love reading, blessing of rings, and vows) the only thing he actually used was the love reading and vows. The rest of the ceremony he just read whatever he wanted. From what I could tell, he didn't even print out my email with the wording despite emailing it to him a week before the wedding, meeting with him two days prior to the wedding and moreover, the day before the wedding. Nevertheless, he is a very kind man with good intentions. He made us feel very comfortable with him during all the meetings and on the day of. I just wish he would have read what I prepared as I felt the words chosen suited my husband and I more than the words read during the ceremony.

Rev Santana, THE BEST! I harassed him everyday for 6 months. My two sisters and I decided to have Rev. Santana renew my parents vows for their 30th anniversary. He help us find the perfect place right on the beach where there was absolutely no one around but us and the ocean and trees. BEAUTIFUL! His price was great. He visited with my parents when we arrived in puerto rico. My father had just gone thru chemo and radiation fir stage 4 throat cancer. Mr. Santana is, in our opinion the only man for the job. He's pretty humorous as well. Great man, if i ever get married he's the man. Thank you Reverend Santana.

My husband and I had a destination wedding in Puerto Rico. We were referred to Rev. Santana by our wedding coordinator. Months leading up to the wedding we had communicated with Rev. Santana via email and phone calls. He was always very pleasant, professional and confident. The day before the wedding we met him in person. He was very patient with us. He guided us through the entire process. Always remained professional and pleasant. The day of the wedding...our ceremony was absolutely beautiful. I am very proud to say that Rev. Santana took a huge part in making our dream wedding a huge success. Thank you Rev. Santana.

Reverend Santana was awesome and my fiance and I couldn't have asked for a more genuine and wonderful person to officiate our wedding.

Reverend Santana was very communicative, and was able to make sure we understood everything that was expected of us since we were getting married abroad, in Puerto Rico. He was able to answer all our questions and took the time to give us a ton of information on how we might like to have our ceremony go. He basically gave my fiance and I a menu on how we could customize our ceremony to make it as personal and unique as we wanted. It made us feel very special.

Once we made it to Puerto Rico, Reverend Santana was very flexible in working with our schedule to finalize our ceremony details and fill out and sign the necessary documentation. This was very refreshing as our time was at a fair premium when we got to PR. This definitely set our minds at as.

As far as the actual ceremony, Reverend Santana was amazing. He worked with our requests as far as the introduction, readings (his and our family members) and our vows. The best part of what Reverend Santana was able to do for our ceremony was that he took what we had requested and added his own tasteful words to the appropriate places. It truly was a wonderful experience. He didn't rush and made everything very easy for us. Guiding us through the ceremony so that day would be as perfect as we had imagined.

We would recommend Reverend Santana and his services without hesitation. He truly was amazing and a delight to work with.

Pastor Santana was amazing! He took the time to get to know my husband and me prior to our wedding. He was extremely knowledgeable on the process and was there every step of the way. I planned a destination wedding from Orlando, FL and had some issues with getting one of the documentations required for being married in PR. Pastor Santana developed a backup plan and made sure there were no issues once I went to the Demographic Registry in Plaza Las Americas. Other than that, we ran into no issues pre-wedding with his guidance.

It was such a pleasure to have him as the Officiant for the wedding. He was on-time, reliable, open to new ideas, patient, charismatic, and very personable which made for a fantastic wedding. Not to mention, I received my marriage license within about 2 weeks which I thought was pretty fast considering the steps involved.

Pastor Santana is known in the community, with a great reputation. You will NOT go wrong by selecting him as your Officiant. As I was advised, "You are in good hands with Pastor Santana." Also, if you're worried about a Spanish accent, he sounds more like he is from NY (and he is). He also does marriage counseling and has demonstrated his character within his own life and marriage.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Rev Aran Santana was to work with for our big day! The first time we met Rev Santana, a few months prior to our wedding date, we immediately knew he was the person we wanted to officiate our special day. He is very sincere, geniune and responsive. Planning a destination can have it's challenges since you are planning from afar, but Rev Santana was extremely helpful in guiding my husband and I through the requirements needed to get married in Puerto Rico. Our guests also mentioned after the ceremony how great they thought Rev Santana was, we would highly recommend him as an officiant. Thank you Rev Santana!! Sincerely, Aileen + David

We can not say enough wonderful things about Rev Santana.
We could not have asked for more to completely enjoy our wedding ceremony and the entire process in Puerto Rico and he was the reason why.
We came to Puerto Rico completely prepared to fulfill all of the documents needed due to him.
The ceremony was beautiful and perfectly performed.
He is a blessing and we would recommend no one else.

Reverend Santana made our special day wonderful! He was a pleasure to work with, and he tailor made our ceremony to our wishes.

We had a destination wedding and Rev Santana made sure we had all of the paperwork we needed before we left. He also walked us through the process of getting our wedding license once we arrived. He met us at our hotel 2 days before the ceremony to go over the ceremony, and he really made us feel comfortable about the whole process.

Reverend Santana is a great person, and we are both grateful that he was a part of our special day. I'd recommend him to anyone needing an officiant in Puerto Rico.
