Why Choose The Ministry at San Antonio

The wedding industry is a complex maze of the unknown. You're comparing prices and shopping around but are you actually comparing equal services? Are you even comparing real ministers, or online "ordained" officiants with no real credentials or experience at all? Do you even know? Chances are you're not comparing equal services or equal quality and you don't even realize it.

You will not find a more experienced true professional team in San Antonio. Our ministers have decades of experience in ministry and performing all types of weddings. The single biggest mistake a couple can make is shopping for their wedding based on price alone.

Experience matters, there are no do-overs or second chances to get the moment right. As the leader in San Antonio Riverwalk weddings we know the importance of the small details, and how to take your event much further than the rest.

No minister or officiant can simply ask to join our team, each minister was hand selected for their experience, professionalism, and expertise.
