  • Father Jerry was recommended to us by our photographer & then I went on Wedding Wire to read reviews & they all said the same thing; he was exactly what they wanted! I'd like to preface this review with saying my husband & I eloped; no family, no friends. We appreciated the time Father Jerry took to tailor our ceremony prior, asked our opinions about certain things, & even had suggestions. Once wedding time came everything went smooth, all according to plan. We got married on a beach bluff at sunset & one thing we especially loved was Father Jerry suggesting us to take a moment to take in the scenery & the beauty of what was around us because, although we would have photographs later, he wanted us to really remember this moment in time. And it was BEAUTIFUL! Father Jerry was extremely easy to work with & very kind!

    responded with the following comments.

    Desiree and Mike: You are right. Everything was so beautiful. Even though the hundreds of friends and family could not be present, everyone was really "there". You were able to focus on each other. There will be a time to share photos and memories. Please come back to Santa Barbara often, even though it is far from where you live. SB is now your town.
