    Victor couldn't have been sweeter. He made sure we were happy with every detail of the ceremony. I couldn't be more satisfied with him as our minister. 5 stars all across the board.

    Victor was absolutely amazing. He was very detailed and took his time in answering questions. He also made sure that the ceremony was to our liking . He made suggestions and gave us advice. Overall, he was much more than we expected. I am so glad we chose him for our ceremony.

    Ceremony
    We spoke to Victor about coming to our home to marry us. Just the two of us and he still was charging $225.00 same price he charges for large weddings. On the day he was coming out to our home that we just recently purchased we had to cancel roughly 3 hours before appointment due to our septic tank running over in our yard. He did not offer to reschedule. Which to me is not good business and then text my fiancé a week or so later demanding full payment of the $225.00. My fiancé told him he would mail him a check because Mr. Victor said that our marriage license would be null and voided in Cherokee County and every other county in Georgia. And that the state could charge us for fraud of a legal document. I contacted an attorney today to inquire about the fraud he claimed we committed and was informed that there wasn't any fraud committed, but the Victor was just using threats.
    Victor J A. Apr 27, 2017

    Dear Ms. Cheryl W. and Mr. Kevin H.:a After several conversations we had trying to accommodate a date for your wedding ceremony at your house, you decided on a date and I reserved that day and time just for you. Per our agreement, full payment is due in case of a cancellation 30 days prior to the wedding date. If I receive a cancellation notice/text, I do always call back to confirm with clients their intention of a cancellation of my services. Do appreciate very much you offering me that full payment was going to be mailed to me. Usually if payment is not received at a reasonable time, as a reminder and to make sure payment was not lost in the mail, I do send a message asking if payment has been sent. I apologize if that message upset or inconvenience you or if you misunderstood my message. I apologize, but in no way used threats to receive any kind of a payment for time loss. I do appreciate that you voluntarily offer paying for my time loss! I'm sorry if you feel that the fee charged for a small ceremony is the same as for a large one. What is charged for a ceremony is the same if it's just for the bride and groom or if it's in front of 200 people!!! It takes the same time and effort from our part to celebrate the ceremony, travel time to wedding location and later filing for the couple their Marriage License into the County courthouse. If you decide later on to get married, please let me know of your intended wedding date. If I'm available, I will be more than happy to celebrate your wedding ceremony for no additional charge. God bless.

    Victor was an absolute gem for our wedding! From my first meeting with him, I felt so at ease with that part of the wedding planning process. He was very thorough in explaining all of the parts of the ceremony to me, and I was able to exactly pick and choose which parts we wanted and didn't want. He was always very responsive to my emails and was a joy and entertaining during the ceremony while remaining totally professional. He flowed easily between English and Spanish as we wanted. Highly recommended!

    Victor, Thank you for a beautiful commitment ceremony! Ken and I did not really know what to expect from a commitment ceremony but your friendly, welcoming and professional demeanor made us feel at ease about things right from our first meeting with you. You helped us personalize our ceremony and all your suggestions were excellent! You were able to really make this day special for us by giving our ceremony the dignity and respect it deserves while simultaneously keeping it light and joyful. The ceremony got nothing but compliments from our friends and family. Our German family members were particularly excited that you cited a prayer in the German language. We really appreciate it - we know that German is impossible :-D (and it must have required a lot of practice on your part)! Thank you for all you did for us! You made our day a day we will never forget! Julia and Ken

    Victor was so kind in agreeing to marry us. His pre-wedding services were highly professional, very thorough and always attentive to our questions with his responses. He arrived a little early and was completely prepared and instead of getting right down to business, he took the time to get to know a little about us and he made us feel very comfortable and at ease. His ceremony was exactly what we had hoped for. His Love for God and his clear commitment to making that day our most beautiful day ever was extremely impressive. We are planning on renewing our wedding vows this summer and we have asked Victor to come to Baton Rouge to repeat our wonderful experience for us. We can't wait to see him again.

He set us a script before the wedding too so he could get input from us. He arrived on time for the wedding. He performed the ceremony perfectly and I think I even caught him tearing up too.
