Such good news!! I am so happy to have him booked too! His ceremonies are great! And it will be so much better then having a wedding coordinator do a 10 minute ceremony!

We have booked Pastor York, the template he gave us brought me to tears. I was all set to have a civil ceremony until my photographer mentioned him...but I've also only heard amazing reviews on him here. So that changed my mind 100% so now we're having a symbolic wedding just to have Pastor York. There's no comparison to the service you'll get, it's so much more personal and like cdc150 said, you can make changes and add or take away things. I'm so excited to have him perform our ceremony!

HI ladies, congrats on your wedding planning!!

 

I had Pastor York do our ceremony on July 22 at the Grand Palladium in Punta Cana and overall my husband and I as well as my guests were NOT pleased with the service he provided. First, we had booked him for a 4pm ceremony and a week or two before the wedding, he asks if he can change our time to 5pm. Fine, we were okay with moving it to one hour later and were flexible to accomodate him.

 

The ceremony which was supposed to be at least 30 min. long was cut short to about 10-15 min! The pastor was late according to my husband and the guests waiting at the ceremony and when I asked my coordinator, this is why I was not picked up at my room to go to the ceremony site which was scheduled for 5pm. So I remember getting picked up AFTER 5pm to go to the ceremony (this resort is quite large so a little cart needed to pick me up and take me to the ceremony). I finally arrive there (we were moving at a turtle's pace because the cart was not large enough and were were squeezed in, another delay).

 

So while my husband is waiting for us to arrive as we are on our way, the Pastor told my husband that he would have to cut the ceremony short because he had another wedding to go to! He was upset that I was late when he was late in the first place!

 

Since I was in such a state of happiness walking down the aisle and during the ceremony, I remember noting that he cut out the readings and went straight for the vows and ring exchanges, but the anger over this didn't sink in until after. Overall the whole thing was about 10-15 min tops and once it was over he disappeared. Some guests even commented to us that he was cursing while waiting for me to arrive and start the ceremony! This to me was unacceptable.

 

Brides, as a warning, please make sure you check how many weddings he has for the day because he seems to overbook himself which risks your ceremony being CUT dramatically short. Do you want to take that risk? We even accomodated his time change.

 

Overall our whole wedding was beautiful and this did not ruin the day but I would have loved to have a more heartfelt and longer ceremony. We were NOT PLEASED with Pastor York and would not recommend him.

Hi ladies and congratulations! Those of you who have used Pastor York, did the resort charge you an extra $300 to use his services, or was the total cost $300? We're just starting to plan for December 2012 and I'd love to have Pastor York as our officiant.

WOW! I am shocked to hear this! This is the first time I have heard ANYTHING negative about Pastor York.  I am sorry to hear you had such a bad experience and on your wedding day no less.  I was under the impression that pastor york booked only 1 wedding a day but I could be wrong.  I will have to go back to my emails to see if we have confirmed our time as I don't believe we had that when I booked!

Hi torilynnsmith, Yes I was also sorry to have this bad experience after having such high hopes for his ceremonies, but was very disappointed. He definitely books more than 1 wedding per day at least in my experience! Have fun in your planning and congrats on your engagement :)

Hi roxy1122,

 

We have Pastor York as well, booked for 1:30 at the ME and luckily he has booked another bride at the ME for 4:30,  I seriously hope he's not running to another resort in between and has to cut us short...

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
    • Wow.... it looks like I need to add some things to my bags ..#goals Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
