local Cabo Officiant? recommendations?

Recommended Posts

I'm back from my wedding...as promised here is my review for Rev. Jorge Arechiga... As I had posted earlier Rev. Marco Arechiga wasn't available so we went with his brother Rev. Jorge Arechiga...AND....He was great!!


We met with him a few days before the wedding so we could all get to know eachother, I didn't want to feel like he was a complete stranger. He had sent over a few different sample ceremonies via email, I ended up liking a little bit from each one, but not one completely, so I took it upon myself to copy and paste and then send it back. He totally worked with me to come up with the perfect ceremony. I always received a prompt response via email, and when we met in person we went over it again to make sure it was exactly what we wanted.


To top it off we had some guests who didn't speak English and others who didn't speak Spanish, so he did our ceremony in both!! A little Spanish first then the translation in English, it was beautiful, this way everyone could laugh and/or cry!! haha.


At the end he did something really special and said a special thanks to our parents, which was totally appropriate for us. He had mentioned to us in our meeting that he always adds something at the end, unscripted, that he felt would be appropriate for us and our group, and he totally did!


He's really sweet and you can feel how much he loves what he does.


As far as I'm concerned, I would recommend him.

Hi Ladies!!!! I NEED HELP!!!!!! Are there any recent brides that used an officiant/minister OTHER THAN Marco Arechiga? I'm getting married next June and am looking for a minister who can deliver a special ceremony.smile124.gif

Because the fiance and I are likely to be civilly married in Canada it would mean a great deal to us if our wedding in Cabo was performed by an active Minister.


I was doing some googling and heard of a Mike Gratzke of the (non-denominational) English Church in Cabo. Has anyone had any dealings with him?

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
