Rev. Jofrey Rabanal
"Our wedding day was amazing!"
We met Rev. Jofrey Rabanal at the Bridal Expo a few years before our wedding and instantly loved his professional and outgoing demeanor. He was actually there representing one of his fellow officiants, and wasn't comfortable promoting himself, so we jotted down his name and planned on contacting the reverend he was representing and inquire about him.
For some reason, we kept postponing the email, and before we knew it, another Bridal Expo rolled around and we decided to do another walk through...we found the same booth with a different man greeting prospective clients and assumed that must be Rev. Ron Valenciana (the Reverend that Jofrey was representing last time). We approached him and explain that we had been to the Bridal Expo earlier that year and met his colleague, and wanted to inquire if he was available to perform our wedding...We didn't want to step on his toes, but we really enjoyed the conversation we had with him and thought he would be perfect for our small and intimate wedding. Rev. Valenciana immediately waved away our concerns and was more than happy to provide us with Rev. Jofrey's contact information and wished us a beautiful wedding and a happy lifelong marriage.
We wasted no time calling Rev. Jofrey. He was on the road and on his way to a wedding, but pulled his car over to take our information and promised he would call as soon as the ceremony finished. True to his word, he called us right back and confirmed our booking.
Throughout the planning, we checked in the Rev. Jofrey and requested that he read a poem I found to open our ceremony, and informed him that I would be signing my vows to my husband. He was very flexible with our requests, and always easy to get in touch with.
Our wedding day was amazing, and I'm so glad we chose Rev. Jofrey. The ceremony he performed was heartwarming, funny and very intimate....just the way we pictured it.
When it came to the marriage license, he sends 2 copies to the Department of Health (one hard copy and one electronic, so there's no mistakes).
Highly recommend :)
