A few testimonials...


I just wanted to write a little letter explaining to everyone who is thinking about getting married in Puerto Vallarta to DO IT!!! My husband and I got married by Brad Smith in Las Caletas on April 18th 2008. Wow, what a day that was!! It was the most FANTASTIC day we had ever wished for our wedding. The sun was shining, the beach was lovely and the water was blue. What more can you ask for? Brad was the BEST minister we could have ever hoped for. He understood our needs for a very simple ceremony with all the beautiful words that we wanted. We also included a candle ceremony for my husbands deceased parents which was so lovely we all had the tears flowing.  He also made sure that he put in a lovely little statement for our son who was unable to be there with us for our wedding day. Brad is the most understanding and knowledgeable minister you could ever hope for. He is funny and understands that weddings are a beautiful and very important day for those involved. He is not rushed or hurried and he will do whatever it is you would like him to do for your ceremony. He is an awesome person and remains our friend to this day!!! Thank you Brad for being the absolute BEST minister ever!!! We LOVED our day!!!!

Brad, the Officiant, was so sincere with his words and even though I only met him for a few minutes, I felt very comfortable and was so glad he was part of our day as well. We had so many comments on what a touching and amazing ceremony it was.

All we can say is WOW!!!!!!!!!!  You are incredible and very talented at what you do.  If you ever need a reference, etc.....we would be happy to tell others how you made our wedding the best day of our lives.

Thanks a million!

Dear Bradley:

As a same sex couple who wanted desperately to experience a wedding as traditional as possible, we were apprehensive about finding, booking and working with  service providers who would truly provide their service without judgment and with the sincerity of honoring our commitment as something real.  We were fortunate to have found Brad Smith to be the officiate of our July 15, 2009 ceremony.  Brad provided his services with fidelity and professionalism, but with the fun spirited personality that made working with him our sincere pleasure.  Brad was efficient in getting the ceremony script to us in advance, he was flexible in revising it to accommodate our specific expectations, he was personable and helpful to us in all capacities throughout the day and then sincerely happy as he performed the ceremony and shared in our commitment to each other with true appreciation.  Without hesitation, we would recommend Brad for consideration in officiating a wedding, commitment ceremony or any other ceremony that unites same sex couples in partnership.

Hi Brad!

How are you? Well I don't even need to ask - you are in PV where it is warm and beautiful and I am almost on my way back to Chicago snow. Boo on that.
It was so great to meet you, I had a blast and I am so thankful that the girls got you. We just watched the video this afternoon and all cried again. It was absolutely beautiful, and we thank you. I wanted to send you this photo, and let you know there will be a QuickTime movie on the way soon......

:) Have a great day, I will write more very soon.



Hola Brad.                                                                                                                         

Well we’re back in Australia and would just like to take the time to thank you for the fantastic day we had and what a good job you did for the wedding ceremony. I would especially like to thank you for the photo’s you took for us and to let you know that we were more than pleased with how they came out, maybe you should also tout as a wedding photographer too.
If you end up making it down to Australia anytime soon drop us a line.
