    The one thing that did bother me was that he never responded to my e-mails. I had to copy my wedding planner to the e-mail to make sure he got them. They both explained to me that he just didn't like e-mails.... but you guys said that he's responsive to your e-mails....

    Karla, when I talked with him via phone he told me that he doesn't do email. He doesn't know how or something like that. Some other wedding planning company checks his emails for him and relays the info. I called him again and spoke with him and he did have our date confirmed still Who knows! Did you like him?

      He told me the same thing and gave me a local San Diego phone number to call to reach him.

        Oh gotcha... sorry girls, I assumed e-mail for some reason.

        We barely had any interaction with him. We did not hire him to show up at the rehearsal. So when I walked up to him and Tim at the wedding, it was the first time I saw him. He was very professional, showed up in a full suit, etc... He was very nice and we talked to him a bit after the wedding was over. I really have no complaints... I feel bad for Danielle, I really hope that was an unfortunate isolated incident.

          I'm glad to know that your experience was very good. I also hope that what happened with Danielle was an isolated incident. When I talked to him this thought never crossed my mind....he always seems so on top of his game.

          Thanks for the input!!

            Is there any way that you girls who hired him can mention Danielle's incident to him? Like maybe say in a nice way "While I have heard great feedback with regards to your work I also have some concerns. There is a girl who had an unfortunate experience with you. I'm sure that was an isolated incident but I would like your reassurance that it won't happen again. And if for some reason you are sick do you have backup to fill your place?" I would ask or else it would drive me crazy from now until the day of my wedding wondering if he is going to show.

              That would be totally fine with me if you mentioned our wedding. Whatever would make you girls feel more comfortable with having him do your wedding if thats what you choose to do is totally cool with me.

                Danielle it really is terrible that he stood you up like that. I'm glad everything worked out for you wedding anyway, even if it was a huge inconvenience. Luckily the happiness of your wedding day couldn't be ruined by his rudeness and irresponsibility. Hey Danielle you should post pics of your wedding. We love seeing pics!

                    Hey girls,
                    It never crossed my mind to book a minister, but I just talked to my coordinator and she said the entire thing would be done in Spanish and then she would translate in english. I dont know how I feel about that since neither me or my FI have any hispanic heritage at all and have never even been to Mexico.
                    We are having a legal ceremony, so we actually want to get married down there. I was sort of happy about the cost of the marriage and all the paper work being included (besides the $150 blood work fee). Can anyone give me some feedback on why they are booking a minister?
                    And is booking a minister expenisve?

                      Well I think if you legally want to get married down there it has to be in spanish. i think. We got legally married in Washington and then had our ceremony the way we wanted it. Ministers are around $200 or so.
