Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
My name is Ernesto (Ernie) Rivera and I have served as a minister at several New Jersey churches for the past 10+ years. In said capacity, I've been privileged to serve alongside families during both celebratory and challenging circumstances. My life's mission is to help those I serve find hope unshakeable hope and joy, in all life circumstances, in "dancing and mourning." I hold an MA in Human Services and offer mentoring/coaching services from a Biblical perspective.

Pastor Ernie was beyond wonderful! He responded to our inquiry right away and that same day we were speaking on the phone. Two days before our wedding, he scheduled another call with us to go over all ceremony details and to make sure he took down all of our requests. He responded to all of our messages and questions and always made us feel taken care of. On our wedding day, I was running a little bit late, as brides sometimes tend to do, and Pastor Ernie was beyond gracious in making me feel good about taking the extra time I needed. He created a beautiful Bible-based message, and started and ended our ceremony with prayer. We are beyond thankful to have found Pastor Ernie to officiate our ceremony. He will forever be family to us!

Pastor Ernie was fantastic through the entire process. Completely professional and attentive to our every need. We recommend him first to any friends/family looking for a wedding officiant.
