Vendor Profile - Pastor Carlos

Pastor Carlos



Our fees range from $250 – $650 based on various factors (i.e., day-of-week, time, location, size of wedding, ceremony, casual or formal, officiant, etc.). Don’t let a little extra cost keep you from hiring one of the best on your once in a lifetime wedding day!
I have performed over 600 weddings in churches, on the beach, in parks, resorts, wineries, yachts, and even in a hot air balloon!
I will get you two involved in the process of creating your wedding ceremony by giving you options to review and to tell me what you would like to include in your ceremony. I will provide you with many ceremony options in various PDF’s. After I get your feedback, I can write your ceremony, and then schedule a time to review it with the two of you. I have created many custom ceremonies: unity candle, sand, tea, wine, hand, etc. all to reflect the unique personalities of each bride and groom. I have also written customized vows and pledges for many couples to suit their individual preferences and unique situations. Couples can repeat them after me, or write and read their own vows. He loves working with couples to create a custom ceremony that is fun, memorable, and reflects who they are in a special way.
Pastor Carlos has been trained to do various ceremonies, as well as pre-marital and marital counseling. He has an excellent online counseling tool that he uses with couples called Prepare/Enrich. After taking the Prepare-Enrich online assessment separately, which evaluates various areas couples typically have disagreements (i.e., communication, conflict resolution, finances, partner styles & habits, leisure activities, sexual expectations, family & friends, relationships roles, spiritual beliefs, etc.) you will meet with Pastor Carlos for a 2-hour session. He will share with you from the 30+ page assessment report your strengths as a couple and show you how to strengthen your potential growth areas. Additionally, he’ll give you a Couple’s Workbook that has exercises to help you strengthen those areas together as a couple. He will also share with you from his personal experience how he and his wife, Lisa, have kept a strong marriage for over 34-years. Typically, your 2-hour session will be in the privacy of his office. However, it can also be done over the Internet on Zoom. This is the best investment you can make for one of the most important areas of your life! Learn to enjoy marriage for a lifetime, not just endure it!
If I am not available, then we have a team of associates at 2WED4LIFE that would do a wonderful job for you. They are all hand picked by me and most of them have over 20-years of performing weddings. They all have great personalities and are excellent public speakers.

    Excellent Ceremony Sevice

    Very happy with the service that Pastor Carlos provided.

    He helped us tailor our ceremony to our preferred length and worked with us on the content... we wanted in our ceremony.

    Pastor Carlos let us know what to expect on the day of the ceremony and performed his duties at the wedding flawlessly. We and our guests were very pleased with the ceremony.

    Excellent Officiant!

    Pastor Carlos officiated by wedding on July 14, 2022 and it was the most beautiful ceremony I could have imagined! He made the process very easy and g...uided us throughout the way. We were able to include all of the elements we wanted and even added some more than he had shared with us. We have gotten so many compliments regarding our ceremony! We also did our premarital counseling with him which was extremely insightful for my husband and I. Pastor Carlos is fantastic and I would absolutely recommend 2Wed4Life to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding.

    Custom Curated Ceremony – Best of the Best

    There are no words that can capture the heartfelt emotions, we forever will cherish, when we reflect on the day Pastor Carlos Sales presided and bless...ed our holy union. Our family, friends, and honored guests as well had volumes to speak of the sanctimonious conduct of Pastor Sales' delivery - making the ceremony meaningful and, ever so important, appealing to our hearts. In a nutshell, in our dealings, Pastor Carlos epitomized calm, collected, personable, and an approachable character - second to none - and his demeanor assured us there was nothing to worry. We met Pastor Carlos through the recommendation list provided by Tom Hams Lighthouse wedding venue co-coordinator. Among all that we reached out to, Pastor Sales not only represented himself as the one truly interested in first knowing us personally as individuals, but secondly sensitive to listening to our needs and providing us options to accommodate our style of ceremony envisioned. We quickly learned him to be a man of wisdom, well versed with many religions through his missionary work and vast travels, and more importantly a godly man accommodating of all. Pastor Carlos was very helpful in making a success of our somewhat unorthodox proceedings by his meaningful recommendations, efficient organization, and seamlessly fluid presentation and delivery. In our humble opinion, Pastor Sales' attention to detail and execution of the ceremony are exceptional and among the best one can hope for. We truly believe, we were blessed to find Pastor Carlos Sales and, irrespective of an encounter short as it may have been, we are honored to say he is "Our Pastor."

    Will Make Your Day Very Special

    Pastor Carlos made our wedding extremely special and unique! He truly scripted our wedding to be what we wanted and envisioned. He also provided excel...lent counseling prior to our wedding. We will be recommending Pastor Carlos to anyone getting married in our area. Our wedding would not have been as special without him.

    Absolutely Perfect

    Pastor Carlos was a dream come true. Not only was he extremely easy, comfortable, & cordial to work with, he made our ceremony absolutely perfect.... He seamlessly integrated everything we wanted into our ceremony (e.g. rose ceremony, breaking of the glass) & knew exactly what to add in to make it even more beautiful. We chose to do his premarital counseling as well & I 100% recommend it, as his couples guidance is invaluable. He was truly the best - you won't find a better officiant!

    An overall amazing officiant

    Pastor Carlos is an amazing officiant. He has been doing this for a while and it really shows through his work. He is organized, professional, prompt ...and makes the whole process comfortable. Choosing a great officiant is important and Pastor Carlos exceeded our expectations. We got tons of compliments on him after the ceremony and I would highly recommend Pastor Carlos for any wedding.

    Japanese Friendship Garden Wedding

    Pastor Carlos was an absolutely wonderful officiant for our wedding! He was recommended by our reception venue, Tom Ham's Lighthouse, and for very goo...d reason. When we initially reached out to him, we scheduled a video call so he could get to know me and my then fiance. He walked us through his process and how he plans and personalizes weddings for each of his couples. He and his secretary are both very responsive throughout the ceremony planning. Closer to our wedding date, Pastor Carlos sent us options on how we would like our ceremony to go, including vow options, ring ceremony options, opening and closing statements, as well as asked about personal touches which for us was a unity cross ceremony. After making our selections, he then personalized the ceremony for us. He gave us a call to walk through our final ceremony and to guide us on how to best make everything go smoothly on wedding day. He arrives before your guests on wedding day so he can check in with the couple, and also get your marriage license situated so you and your spouse don't have to worry! I cannot recommend Pastor Carlos enough.

    Pastor Carlos, He took time to meet with us before the wedding to get to know us and go over everything which was nice and made us feel so comfortable... on our wedding day. He was the perfect mix of personable, funny, and gave an amazing scripture centered around what marriage should look like. He was perfect for us and we are so grateful we got to have him be our guy on our special day! Thanks again, Pastor Carlos!

    Outstanding Officiant

    I work at a wedding venue where Pastor Carlos has officiated many of the weddings. I noticed that he was always early and very professional. Depending... on what the couple wanted he was dressed appropriate either in formal attire, religious attire or casual. So when it came to our wedding he was an obvious choice. Days prior to our wedding he went over our vows and custom tailored them for our needs and wants. He provided many options for us to choose from which helped us out because we didn't have anything planned to say. We had a casual, small wedding in our yard (thanks COVID) and he performed our ceremony. He arrived early and performed our wedding beautifully. Very personable and friendly person and I highly recommend him for anybody's future wedding.

    Fantastic officiant!

    Pastor Carlos was phenomenal! We had several guests come up to us to say what a wonderful officiant he was! He is so personable and relaxed when speak...ing that neither myself nor my husband felt nervous saying our vows! Pastor Carlos was great at communication and responded quickly to any questions we had. You are able to choose which items you want in your ceremony, so that made us feel like ours was unique! Thank you again Pastor Carlos for making our day so special!
