Rev Rene Esparza made our wedding fun, comfortable, and loving. It's like he's known us for years. We got alot of great compliments from our guests. But most importantly he calmed me down with his pre-ceremony talk assuring me that everything would turn out perfect despite the bad weather that was going on outside. Walking down the aisle and seeing my husband's smile along with Rev Esparza's smile I knew my wedding was perfect. Thank u again to Rev Esparza and Texas Wedding Ministries

Simply the best!

Three words- Simply the best. He met with my (now) husband and I in person to figure out our personalities and what mattered most to us. From there, he incorporated everything we asked of him to give us just the right blending of our two backgrounds. He and his wife attended our rehearsal lunch and helped me get rid of the jitters, only for us to find out that it was his wife's birthday and their recent anniversary celebration! They had taken time out of their busy personal lives to help us figure out ours. On the day of the wedding, things ran very smoothly and felt so perfect. We had several people come up to us after the ceremony and tell us that it was one of the most personable and intimate weddings they had ever attended. They said that unlike most ceremonies, they felt as if they were included and specifically mentioned Rene as being one of the nicest people that they have had the pleasure to meet. I feel the same way. Sometimes in life we get a gift- Rene found his calling, and we found the best officiant ever.
