Hello everyone. My name is James Bradley Smith, your wedding Officiant for the Puerto Vallarta/Riviera Nayarit area. I have been living in the Bandares Bay area for almost 8 years. Being a person that has never traveled, I had found a new home where I have learned a new language, culture and a new way of life in a Mexico. I am the type of person who lives life for the moment and looks forward to the moments to come. Thankful for every minute in my life; I have many friends and love them all. Family is very important to me, don't forget your family! Very outgoing, fun and enjoys talking to and helping people. I have been practicing non-denominational wedding services full time for the last 4 years, dedicating my time and sharing with couples, wonderful heart felt ceremonies in one of the greatest moments in their life's. I have found my home, my place in the world and thankful for every minute I live.........Remember, you only go through life once. Looking forward to working with you.

Hello!My name is Jesus Andres Fernandez and I am proud to be a member of the Ceremonies to Remember team of Officiants.After working and traveling in Asia for 5 years, I have returned to my beautiful home country of Mexico.My international experience has taught me to respect and appreciate different cultures, and has broadened my understanding of many different religions, beliefs and customs found around the world.Having been happily married for 8 years (And completely in love with two girls...my wife and my Yellow Labrador!), I am reminded how important the commitment of marriage is, with every new ceremony I perform.All weddings are special to me and I look forward to the new experiences each one brings.The biggest surprise of my career so far was the opportunity to renew the vows of Heidi Klum and Seal (Henry Samuel) in 2010.You can feel confident that I will make your ceremony as unique and meaningful as that one.It would be an honor to be the Officiant at your ceremony, and to share in your special day.


Marloes Balk

Buenas dias a todos. My name is Marloes Balk and I am currently working together with James Bradly Smith and Ceremonies to Remember. I have lived in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for over 18 months now and hope to be living here for many more fulfilling years. I have travelled to many destinations around the world but can truly and honestly say that this is the place I call home. The first wedding I hosted was one in South Africa and it opened my up my eyes to a whole new world, witnessing and uniting two souls in their most profound moment of intimacy. Being a minister gives me a great feeling of joy and fulfilment as I am a person who truly loves people. It is my mission to help two souls in love through their most vulnerable and sacred moment in their lifetime. The experience of uniting two people together in truly breathtaking and unlike any other moment in your life; I hope to be a part of that. I very much look forward to working with you.
