We couldn't have picked a better reverend to marry us. My wife and i didn't really know where to start, but our wedding destination photographer (Alfonso Idoate) recommended us to him and so we trusted his word. And were we ever blessed!!

Our wedding was a destination wedding at "El Conquistador" Fajardo, Puerto Rico on 7/21/16. So needless to say, my wife and i were like two fish out of the water. But, from our very first meet & greet Rev Santana made us feel right at home. Rev Santana was extremely professional, humble, humane, classy, and friendly. Step by step he patiently and carefully instructed us about the wedding license paperwork, doctor physicals, and mail certification follow up. He diligently was attentive to let him know by cell phone as soon as we received our license in Chicago. That's the type of revenant you will get if you book him. He's very approachable, friendly, and personal. Right away my wife and I knew we were in good hands. He was very detailed oriented, gave you options, and gave you the freedom to tailor the wedding ceremony messages. He made us feel comfortable, especially me...since I'm a very forgetful person...and was worried to mess up my parts. But, he kept assuring us (especially me) that everything was going to be fine, as long as we follow his lead. And, boy...was it ever!! I'm not one to brag, but my wedding was perfect because of him. It was heartfelt, full of messages that hit home for my wife and myself and (for everyone in the crowd). He even had a moment of silence for my wife's beloved grandfather (very important for my wife) who had passed away, but was there in spirit, watching from above. He made us feel as if he already knew us (I believe from paying careful attention at our meet & greet and by speaking to us a couple of times on the phone) and as if his blessings & message verses were tailored just for us.

He truly was a God sent gift, and my wife and I were truly blessed to have been married by Rev Santana.

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.
